Pictures of Ava

Miss Ava Julianna Saenz sportin' a fancy leg bracelet. Look at those long and lean legs. She's a beauty, that's for sure.
Snoozin' after a hard night's work. Being born is hard work. Isn't she cute? Can't wait to see her.

We are Grandparents !!!!

I don't have a picture that I can post but Miss Ava Julianna Saenz is here. She came last night around 2am and she weighs 6 lbs 15 oz and is 20 inches long. Everyone is healthy and happy. We are so happy for Heather and Mike. There is nothing better than a new baby. They are fresh from Heaven and I can't wait to meet her. I will be Granny and Dave will be PeePaw. Grand babies are a great treasure.

Relief Society Mad Hatter Party

Sasha and I at the Relief Society Mad Hatter Party

Sasha and I again wearing our crazy hats!
(Thanks Jodi Hjelm for taking our picture)

Last night was our Relief Society's Mad Hatter Party. Everyone wore their craziest hats. Sasha wore her wrestling headgear and I wore Dave's old flight gear cranial from when he worked on the flight deck. It was a great party and there were over 60 ladies there. It was great. We played Relief Society Jeopardy and did a game where we found out everyone's birthday. It was really fun. It was almost a perfect evening.

Inspections are OVER !

This past week has been a crazy week. I was scheduled to have my Family Child Care NAFCC Accreditation inspection sometime between March 8-12. Well, it drove me absolutely crazy to not know when the inspectors were going to arrive. I mean, really. What am I supposed to do....look out the window until I see a strange car pull in. I couldn't even leave the house during daycare hours because they "might" decide to show up. Of course, I had to have a certain number of my clients here or the observation would be invalid. I definitely didn't want that. That would mean that I would have to be tortured all over again some time in the future. The observer came and it was 8 hours before she was gone for good. She went through cupboards, shelves, records, art supplies, books, outside equipment, indoor things....basically everything. She watched to make sure that I was changing diapers in the proper procedure. What parent follows the exact procedure for changing their child's diapers? Or who even knows that there is a proper procedure? Guess what....Child care providers have to. Or else. Big trouble. Anyway...I won't know how I did until 12-16 weeks from now. I have to be patient while I wait. Wish me luck.

Jayson is going to the Regional Science Fair

Jayson and his crystal radio antenna project

Jayson made this really cool thing for his science fair project. He decided to make a crystal radio out of an oatmeal box and other various clips and wires. I was totally impressed that he was able to put it all together and create something that can receive radio wave transmissions and then turn it into sound. I am so proud of him. Anyway....he received an A+ at school, and was invited to take it to the Clover Park District Science Fair Competition. He did so well there, that he is now invited to present it to the School Board, and then compete in the Regional Science Fair held at Pacific Lutheran University. So...way to go Jay! You Rock!

School is Hard.

I didn't realize that it has been such a long time since I last posted to this blog. I am sorry and I will repent of my evil ways and post more often. I started school on Feb 9th and it has been kicking my behind. The test that I studied the hardest for I totally bombed. I am almost half way done with the class....and that will be a great thing. I kick myself for not finishing college when I was young, single, and had money and time. What was I thinking? At least the weather this weekend is great. Yippee Skippee.
