2010 in Review

WOW! 2010 is over and a new year is beginning. Here are a few hightlights of our year At the Cassat's house:

We welcome a 3rd member to our family - Phoebe the wonder dog!

Greg and Mindy in deployment mode getting the house and cars all fixed up.

Emma turns 2 and goes to a babysitter 3 days a week.

Stephen turns 9 & enters 4th grade eager to learn.

After 8 months of waiting and waiting, we say good-bye to Greg in June.

Mindy & kids travel to Europe to visit Cassat cousins w/Grandma & Grandpa.

We are blessed to welcome Greg back home in August after a cut in numbers.

Mindy is released from Primary. She & Greg teach the 16-18 yrs. Sunday School.

Greg is called to be on the High Council (Heavenly Father's answer to "why am I coming home?")

We look forward to another wonderfully challenging year in 2011!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We celebrated ringing in the new year at a friend's house eating pizza and drinking soda all night (or at least until 9:00 when the kids needed to get to bed). Stephen enjoyed banging on the host's drums and Emma discovered Malcala game - dropping colored rocks into grooved out cups. We watched movies and watched the kids enjoy themselves. Yes, we didn't wait up for midnight to come but had a great new year's eve night.

Birthday Girl!

I had a fabulous 38th birthday that began with breakfast in bed made by my honey. I invited Stephen and Greg to join me and help eat the yummy cinnamon french toast. (Nobody declined my invitation). Next I went to the gym and had a great workout. After the gym, Emma and I had a nice visit at the cemetary since I didn't get there for Christmas to visit mom, Brad and Rob. It was harder this year than other years. I know they are watching out for me from heaven. I'm glad I went. Emma would say "wuv you" when I place flowers on their graves.
I spent the day doing what I wanted to do. I didn't do any laundry, house cleaning, painting, home improvements, etc. I DID play with my kids, finished a sewing project and relaxed!
Despite having pink eye and a cold, we enjoyed birthday pizza and then Greg & I went to a movie. A nice way to end the perfect birthday!
Happy Birthday to me!

Thanks family for making my day so special!
