Chase made All-State Chorus!

My next big news today is that Chase made All-State Chorus!! This is quite an accomplishment and Tommy and I are so proud of her!! Chase had All-State Auditions back on October 15, 2011 and we just found out the results today, and she made it!! This is a huge honor, this chorus is made up of high school chorus students all across the state of Georgia, so as you can imagine only a select few from each school are chosen! During her audition, she was judged on a solo, singing her scales, sight reading, as well as a written test she took on musical terms, I am sure I am leaving something out, but needless to say Chase did very well!! We are so excited for her! Now she has to learn her music and in February during her winter break we will spend 3 days in Savannah, GA for her to rehearse with some of the top choral directors from all over the state, and then they will have a performance on our last evening there!

Here is a picture of Chase as we were headed to All-State Auditions!

Nathan and Hester Celebrate 10 years of Marriage

Well, as you can probably tell I have been working hard to get my blog up to date, I have been especially busy today, because I have 2 wonderful things to blog about that are happening on today's date, and even though I got several blogs caught up, I still have more catching up to do, but I didn't want this day to pass by without blogging about these 2 important events!!

This post is to wish Nathan and Hester a Happy 10th Anniversary!! 10 years ago today, our son Nathan married the love of his life, a wonderful woman that Tommy and I are so proud to call our daughter in law! They have a wonderful marriage and 3 beautiful children that are wonderful blessing to them and our entire family! We love you, Nathan and Hester!

Kaleb and Kinley turn 4

~Saturday, September 3, 2011

September is a big birthday month in the Worthey family, but the 2 that I am putting in the spotlight today is Kaleb and Kinley! Kaleb is our youngest grandson, he is Matthew's son (Matthew's birthday is on September 17th) Kaleb has gotten into Volcanos and so his party was a you guessed it a Volcano party! Since they live in NC, we don't get to see them as often as we would like, but here are a few pictures I got from Sarah of Kaleb's 4th birthday!

Kinley is our precious granddaughter, she is the oldest daughter of our son Nathan (Nathan's birthday is also in September, he was born on September 23rd) Kinley turned 4 years old on September 11th.  They live in Cumming now, so we don't see them as often as we would like either, but at least they are only and hour and a half away and we were able to go up on Thursday evening September the 8th and help celebrate Kinley's 4th birthday at Chuck E Cheese! She had so many friends from school come and help her celebrate and they all had so much fun playing all the games, and having pizza and birthday cake!
We love Kinley and Kaleb so much and we are so proud to be their Grandaddy and Mimi
Happy Birthday! We love you both! ~ Grandaddy and Mimi

First Football game of the Season

~Thursday, August 25, 2011

Chase was so excited for Marching Season to get underway this year, she loves Colorguard so much and this year, she was not only spinning her flag, but she also made the weapons line, which means she will be spinning the rifle and the sabre!

Here are a few pics from the first game of the season

Here's some pictures of the performance, there is one I know you can see Chase, but my camera is still having technical difficulties

After the performance, Chase loves that feeling of being on the field!! :)

Destiny's 4th Birthday

~ Saturday, August 20, 2011

I couldn't let this day go by (even though I am just catching up the blog) I still couldn't let this day go by without saying a Happy Birthday to Destiny! As many of you know, Destiny is the little girl who stayed with us for almost 4 months while we were doing foster care. Unfortuantely we had no other choice but to close our home to DFACS because of a particular case worker, Valerie Walters was putting the rights and needs of the biological parents far above the needs and safety of the children in her care, Destiny being one of them, so we felt we had no choice, but to close our home!

On August 20th Destiny turned 4 years old, Destiny and I had talked many times about having her a big fun birthday party, she had never had one before, so I was so excited, and as you can imagine she was so excited too, she asked me everyday if that day was her birthday party! I hope that where ever she is now, that she was able to celebrate her birthday like a 4 year should!! We love you Destiny and we will never forget the time we had with you!!

Trip to Matthew and Sarah's House

~ Monday, August 15, 2011

The week of the 15th I went and spent a week with Matthew, Sarah, and the kids! I had a wonderful time with them (as usual). Matthew cooked me a wonderful steak sandwich while I was there, and Sarah and I tried out one of my Weight Watcher casseroles that I had been wanting to make! Kaleb is getting so big and starting to become alot more out going! The first day I got there Sarah and Hannah both had dentist appts, so after she picked me up from the airport, she just had to drop me and Kaleb off at the house and then she left, I have to say I was afraid he wouldn't want to stay with me because it usually takes a little bit for him to warm up to me when I haven't seen him in a while, but much to my surprise he was happy to stay with me and he loves to watch (not play) but watch others play Monkey Balls on the Game Cube...Mimi however doesn't know anything about video games, the Wii I love...I could play Wii games all day, but the others with all the buttons and moves, I have no clue!! So as I was attempting to play Monkey Balls, Kaleb kept grabbing my face and saying "Mimi Don't let them fall!!!" Then when I was doing good, he was jumping up and down saying "Go Mimi Go!!" It was so funny! Unfortuantely, this is one of the times my camera was not working, so I have no pictures, but I had a wonderful week with Hannah and Kaleb! They are such a joy! I loved hanging out with Matthew and Sarah too!! Thanks for letting me spend the week with you guys! I love you all! :)
