The Dunlap duo has sure grown up fast...seems like it was only yesterday we were dropping them off at Kindergarten! Now they are on the final countdown until Graduation Day.
Thanks Brandi for the picture... it turned out GREAT!
Connor is looking very handsome...don't you agree?
Aly and Anthony took a moment to stop by for a quick picture before the dance. Thanks Aly for making your Aunt's day. You looked so beautiful my dear.

Next on the calendar for Aly & Connor...their 18th b-days.......

A Bonding Experience...

Wisdom Teeth Extraction 2011
Snuggies, movies, jello & ice...what more could you want?
Oh yes, this whole experience to be OVER!
Both kids had their wisdom teeth extracted back in January. It was quite an experience. I am very proud of how well they both handled the situation. They were troopers through and through.

Hello Again!

This is the magnificent sight outside my window. It is so beautiful and calm.... I have made myself a promise not to be such a blogging stranger... over the next few weeks I will try to catch you up on the happenings of our family since August. As for right now..I'm going to enjoy the rest of my snow day while snuggling up with my warm blanket and a James Patterson book that I brought home yesterday in anticipation of another day off from school!

Happy Birthday Nae

My sifter got put to use again...

Mark arranged a surprise birthday dinner for Renae on Wednesday night at our house and amazingly we pulled it off ~ she didn't have a clue what we were up to! We have also officially begun planning our "White Sandy Beach" Anniversary trip scheduled for some time next summer. It was quite a sight looking around seeing 8 people, 4 laptops, 1 desktop PC and a flat screen TV tapped into the internet displaying destinations of interest. Sad thing is...we still don't have a clue as to where we are any suggestions?

Best Help EVER!

My niece, Aly, is my high school aide this semester and I am LOVIN' it! Better than her helping me with clerical work is the fact that I get to see her multiple times each week. :) Thanks Al for all your help. You are wonderful, greatly appreciated and loved very much!

The Beginning & The End

Of High School that is...
Connor ~ Senior ~ Class of 2011
Breckyn ~ Freshman ~ Class of 2014
I blinked and in a matter of moments my babies have grown up before my very eyes. Today marked new mile stones in our lives. The beginning of Breckyn's high school years and the final chapter in Connor's. I giggled out loud when I saw their schedules because Breck has Algebra 1st hour and Connor happens to be a peer tutor in the same room that period. I pray for that teacher!

Connor is Off To See The World

Or At Least The Land Down Under!
Good Bye Abilene - See you in 15 Days!
He was so excited that I couldn't be nervous...that is until I left the airport.
The KS People to People Ambassadors.
Notice there are only 3 boys and a lot of girls!
Today is day 4 of Connor's Australian Experience. He is in Cairns, Australia where he has explored the Wet Tropics Rainforest and encountered the unique fauna, like koalas, kangaroos, crocies, and wombats at a wildlife sanctuary. He has gotten to interact with local Aboriginal people while watching a traditional aboriginal performance and even gotten to participate in a bush dance. I wonder if he likes Australian dances more than American! Today he is snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef. This was one of the activities he was looking forward to most. This mom sure is missing her baby boy but I am so elated that he is getting to enjoy this awesome opportunity.
