Double Wowza!!!!

Nathan and Colleen are engaged as of Friday night!

They were pretty much up in the clouds.... :D

It's hard to believe that my brother.... my brother is engaged! The brother who I used to play war with when we were little; the brother who had always challenged me to try new things and be more adventurous; the brother who was always the big brother; the brother who always seemed one step (2 steps?) ahead of me. And soon he'll be gone. Man! I mean, I knew this would happen sometime.... but... so soon?

Wowza. :D

And by the year of 2009, Lord willing, the Sleadd family will be down to only 5 members at home. 5! Is that crazy or what! And I'll have to step up to the plate of 'big Sleadd sibling'. It's all so very strange.... yet very exciting!

Ok, so that was the news. Nathan and Colleen are engaged to be married.
But there's more! :D

Naomi Phillips, my sister, is expecting another baby! She is due in March. Can you believe it?? This is amazing! Everything seems to be happening at once!

All I can say is 'wowza'. God is good and He gets all the credit.

Pictures of Late.

Our church work project.

Jim Miller and dad.

Me... with my donuts and root beer. Talk about healthy! :D

Back to work.

My no-longer-quite-so-cute chicks. :D

Fireworks at the Quaids

And then Alexa put this Rambo thing on my head while I was busy on my computer. What a goofy sister. :D

I'm a licensed driver!

We (dad and I) left at about 8:05 this morning to go take my drivers test. I was a little nervous that I might fail the driving a second time.

I had flunked the first test; For reasons like- lack of observation, failing to give right-of-way, halting stops, and a pathetic parking job to wrap it all up at the end. It was painful. I had scored a 45 with the required score being 75. I totally didn't want to fail again. :D

So, I took the test again and scored a 95. Phew. Now I can drive on my own! Yippee!

Alrighty, have a good day!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!

Well, as I said in my previous post, Nathan is 19 years old. Pretty amazing. We had a fun birthday with him. We had cake, went swimming, saw Wall-e, and relaxed. Oh, and Nathan opened presents. :) He got a ton of junk food, sweets, a homemade Hawaiian shirt from Colleen and other stuff.
He said it was the best birthday ever! Probly cuz Colleen was there. Ha!

For those of you who have not yet seen Wall-e, you need too. :D It's a good movie. It's kind of hard to describe it. It has a beautiful soundtrack, the kind of music that makes you imagine yourself sailing through the universe; breath-taking graphics, and a plot that portrays a genuine friendship between 2 robots: Wall-e and Eve. By the end of the movie, you can't help but love Wall-e because he is so much like a little toddler who is always happy to explore and serve. It's a very cute and entertaining movie; a lot like Finding Nemo. Ya'll should see it.

So, back to the topic of 4th of July; we're going to a BBQ/picnic at the Quaids! I'll probably see some of you there!

See you later!
