Review of July - December 2007

JULY - The Crittenden family pool was opened for the season.....

4th of July was spent with great friends in Independence, OR. It was a great fireworks display again, right along the river!

Then we spent a wonderfully long weekend with the Harter family in Pacific City. All the kids, dogs, and adults had a great time!

August - was a very busy month, we also had a great visit from Aaron's brother and family from Las Vegas.

Aaron and Karen (SIL) celebrated their birthdays (cake fight happened)

I attend the Oregon Jamboree with Angie ( we saw Jo Dee Messina (pictured), Trisha Yearwood, Dierks Bentley, Neal McCoy, Arron Tippin, Bucky Covington, Lorrie Morgan, Hal Ketchum, Steve Holy and more) we had great seat and the weather was wonderful.

I also attended my 20th high school reunion. Hmmm. not sure what to say about it. Some had changed, some still had not. It was great to see people, catch up on old friends, and see what is going on.

SEPTEMBER - Woo hoo, school starts again. Savannah moved to North Albany middle school, 6th grade had a rough (emotional) start, but is now doing great! Dominick is in the 4th grade at Clover Ridge still and loves it!

Savannah got her first 4 braces on, and is excited to have straight teeth in the future.

Aaron hurt his back and had to have back surgery also this month (once again he would not let me take pictures), and my mom flew out from Arizona to help me with just a days notice. I could not of made it through this time without her and my in-laws also. They were wonderful, helping transport the kids, and Aaron to dr. appt's, running errands, etc. It was a LONG couple of months,with physical therapy and many dr. appt's but he is finally doing great!
OCTOBER - What a busy month...... Savannah had her first band concert (she plays the Oboe)

We went to the pumpkin patch, and carved pumpkins.

Soccer and gymnastics seasons both started up again.
School pictures came back...........(not sure where Dominick's scan is (I will get working on that)

NOVEMBER - Thanksgiving was held at our house. A small affair with just Aaron's family and our friends The Harter's. But was a great day!

December - Oh where do we start.......what a busy crazy month (and its really not even over yet) Savannah has her winter band concert.

Dominick also had a Winter program, but when you send a man to take pictures you might as well not even send the camera. The pictures were horrible, blurry and unrecognizable. :(

Storybook land and seeing Santa (An annual tradition with Gma & Gpa Fish)

Let's see...........what else happened........oh ya Christmas tree hunting, decorating, and Christmas itself, but I will stave those for another post.....when I get the pictures uploaded. :)
