The USAF Thunderbirds came to visit San Angelo in mid March. It was AWESOME. I have always loved airshows... I guess that comes with being an Air Force kid. I have never seen so many people on Kickerbacher road! It was backed up all the way to the loop. People had parked on the side of the road for miles to get a view of the show without actually dealing with all of the people at the airport. My sister in law, her kids, and Naomi and I braved the crowds and even ran into De Dad at the show. It was so much fun and brought back so many happy childhood memories from when I was growing up with my parents. It was definitely an experience though to brave and air show as a civilian. I gained a whole new appreciation for the VIP treatment we used to get when dad was the base commander! Thanks Dad!
The girls really wanted to paint after supper tonight. So we got out the paints! Naomi and Lanie painted lots of different pictures for us to make into thank you cards for her birthday gifts. They are quite the little artists. The first to receive these works of art ...why papa and nona of course!
The girls where playing the other day.... Naomi was the mother and she had put Lanie (who she called baby Leto) to bed and was wheeling her around the house in our wagon. It was pretty cute if I do say so myself. For as much as they fight... I really enjoy watching them play together because when the do get along they can be so sweet to each other.

With Naomi's birthday money from Ma Ma and Nona and Papa we redecorated the girls room . We had not really done anything to make the room theirs since moving into our new house last April. The girls got a new bed frame and a new bed spread and of course the darling new "papa bears". It is the picture perfect "little girls room" I am so excited and proud for them. Next on the list: a new carpet, a new curtain to match the bedspread and updated picture frames and the new room will be COMPLETE!
So believe it or not Naomi turned 4 today. I can't believe she is growing so fast. That phrase seemed so cliche just a few years ago and now I know what it truly means. Naomi's big wish for her birthday was a princess cake and a scooter. She was very blessed by family who love her dearly. She received so many wonderful things. She got her birthday wish about the scooter and the princess cake ... and also many other wonderful gifts: a new bed from my parents, precious "papa" bears from build a bear, a new bed spread from mama, and books from mama and aunt rena. Her cousin's jaden and leto made her a sweet card... it has been a wonderful day hope you enjoy the pictures
