JUNO... I recommend it. I never go to movies, yet Lance & I just saw this with Brad & Jenny... (and the first time, Lance & I were dying laughing... yet I cried through the whole thing. Everytime Jennifer Garner would come on the screen. ...I felt like I could just relate to her so much! I love her - period.) The 2nd time I saw JUNO, I didn't cry, just laughed! I love this movie!As tradition, we also celebrated with the whole family after our Sunday Dinner. Riggs & Alisse opened their gifts! (Sorry to brag a bit)
A little somethin', somethin' I was working on for Alisse. (Matches her house!) I wanted to keep it...Ellie told us earlier in the week that she wanted to go see the "BIG JESUS at the temple". Welp, turns out all of the Cummards had the same kinda plans for FHE. (to see the REFLECTIONS OF CHRIST) We didn't get to see the movie, yet. BUT, I really admire all that had any part to do with it. It is amazing!
After the temple, Grandma Cheryl made her yummy "cookie monsters".
We all oinked out!TUESDAY, bright & early... Ellie had her 1st day of preschool at Grandma Cheryl's school. I haven't heard much from Cheryl, yet. ELLIE loved it & loved that her cousins went to school with her! I am so busted.
(For any of you that are mad I added this, I am embarrassed for myself, too!)
YEARS AGO, while the Riggs family was at the FUN ZONE on Newport, we made a little video.
"GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN"!!!!!
Featuring: Aunt Alma, Fran & Maggie Garcia, my mom, cousins: Emily, Becky, Sheri, Amy, Krista, Erica, & me & all my sisters!!!
Here is a quick clip (like 20 seconds) of one of my favorite parts!!
My grandma & Aunt Alma have been wanting to make a NEW "updated" version with all of the little girls in the family. (All of our kids- who were dressed like 80's rock stars.)
Well, that finally happened.
Everyone met at my moms. Alma helped them learn some cute moves, etc.MADNESS!
Funny .... they were dancing THEN!!!
Right before the "Practice taping", Alma got a call from her family telling her that her son GOLDEN had been in an accident & was taken by ambulance to the hospital.
So, off Alma went. (Golden is now at home, & doing a lot better)
Here is a short video clip of our kids!
Ellie didn't do another move the ENTIRE song. I think she was posing incase anyone took pictures! The girls were so cute. Some of the Riggs girls were missing & some just chickened out at the last second!
Ellie loved babying Noah as he took a nap the next day.
"PARTY LIKE A ROCK STAR"
party. It was adorable. I love Renee & SO DOES ELLIE. Thanks for the invite.This is Madison, I coach her. Ellie loves her, too.
Then there are these 2 crazy, fun girls (Gabbie & Cassandra- might look familiar form Extreme Home Makeover) They always chase Ellie around the gym & Ellie loves to tease them.
What a GREAT, AMAZING PROPHET we lost today.
He has made such an impact on our church... & myself. I am grateful for all that I have learned from him. Our prayers are with his family. He will be greatly missed on the Earth.Have a great week!
