1st Communion

Bridget's 1st Communion was wonderful. She looked beautiful. The mass was very special since Cynthia and Rachel were the cantors and Grandma Tess was a eucharistic mininster. The celebration afterwards was very fun. It is so nice to have all our friends and family at the house. A big thanks to Chris' brother Mike for helping with the food.

Mark and Britt

One of the best parts of Bridget's 1st communion was that Chris' brother and sister-in-law and their daughters came for a week long visit. We loved getting to know the girls better and visiting with them. Amanda especially bonded with her cousin Emma. I would like to say THANK YOU for making the trip. Bridget really appreciated it as we all did especially during such a busy time!!!! LOL Andrea

Bridget gets her ears pierced

It is a Beavin tradition to get your ears pierced for your 1st Communion. Bridget took it all in stride and she looked beautiful with her new earrings.

SMM Presents Oklahoma

Cynthia (Aunt Eller) and Rachel (dancer / farm girl) as well as the rest of the cast did an awesome job in Oklahoma. The costumes, set, dances, singing, lights, etc were just top notch. We are very lucky that SMM has such a talent drama teacher. Cynthia was very emotional on the last day because she loved being in the plays every year. By the way, Chris designed and built the farm house.


Easter was a fun day especially since Chris' dad has some real bunnies for the girls to play with. Chris' great niece seem to have a great time hunting easter eggs as well.

Spring Break

We were a little scattered over Spring Break. Andrea worked most of the week. Bridget went to Florida to visit Andrea's brother David and his family with Andrea's parents. Cynthia went to Brandson MO with a friend's family. The rest of us stayed home. One day they went to a fun park for some fun!

Beautiful Sky

There are times when a very simple thing really makes you stop and realize how wonderful nature is. One sunday afternoon I walked out the front door and saw a beautiful rainbow and awesome sky.

U of L in NCAA Regional

Since we were in Indy for Rachel's volleyball tournament we took advantage of the fact that U of L was playing in the Regional Tournament just down the street. Andrea's parents and Chris went to the game on Friday. Rachel went with Chris and Bruce on Sunday. Friday was fun as they won big. Sunday was a lost but still a neat experience.

Rachel volleyball team wins tourney in Indy

Rachel's volleyball team travelled to Indy for a small tournament. They took the Gold but also had alot of fun. We went the Cheeseburger in Paradise to celebrate.

Cynthia is 14!

Cynthia's birthday fell on the first Sat of Spring Break. She was leaving that Friday afternoon for a week long trip with her friend Melanie so we celebrated her birthday as a breakfast before school.

Busy Busy Busy

I love the blog because it allows the whole family to showcase all the important events in our lives. Since we are all so blessed however I am always behind on my postings. Since Cynthia's confirmation in March here is a small sample of the blessings we have had.
