Matt's White Coat Ceremony

Today we went to Matt's White Coat Ceremony.
Dr. Beyda gave an outstanding keynote address.
Kissing after the ceremony.
We arrived early to get a seat.

This is a picture of Matt after he received his white coat.
Surrounded by beautiful girls!

After the celebration I took some more picture outside.


I'm so happy that Matt is a dedicated medical student!
What a cute couple!


Matt is now an official medical student with his white coat. He is one of the 48 first-year students attending The University of Arizona College of Medicine in Phoenix. We are so excited that he has decided to pursue a noble career in medicine. Matt is such a kind and compassionate son. All of his family members wrote him a letter that he read before the ceremony. He said it was a touching experience and I'm so glad we were able to be there!

Family Night



We went to Stephanie's home for family night and she made some delicious chicken enchiladas and a yummy lemon cake. The cousins always have fun when they get together.

Wicked


We went to see the play Wicked at Gammage to celebrate Matt's Birthday. It was fabulous and we had a blast!

A day at Disneyland

Stacey had a long layover in Burbank so I took the girls
on her flight so we could spend the day at Disneyland.
Madison is quite the little photographer!

Carys will be starting Kindergarten next month!

She is such a cutie pie!
These girls love Disneyland!

One of my favorite rides is Dumbo.
The girls had a blast and didn't want to leave!
They had fun playing the tamberines at the New Orleans Square.
The lunch was yummy there too.

It was a beautiful day to spend time with Madison!

They are always making changes at Disneyland. It's a Small World had new characters throughout the ride. I'm glad we took this quick trip to California since it's always fun to celebrate at the happiest place on earth.

We were so happy to be with Sadie on her first birthday!

She loved her first doll!

She had fun peeking inside the packages!

Her pink lemonade cake was delicious!

Sadie is such a cutie pie!



Sadie loves to play with her mommy's necklace!



We had a blast being able to spend time with Sadie on her first birthday! She is such an adorable granddaughter and we were so excited to be able to see her take her first steps. Thanks Mike and Emily for the great time we had with you in North Carolina!
