and the award goes to...

Phil's work had an award ceremony the other night at a Astros baseball game. He won the Rookie of The Year Award. We originally thought this whole award thing was kind of a joke but come to find out the company took it pretty serious, he had to give a mini speech and everything. I am so proud of him and all his hard work.

We enjoyed a low key 4th of July at Phil's Mom's after I got off work. It was fun to just hand out, eat yummy food, and enjoy good company (too bad Bob was sick). Rosie actually liked this t-shirt, it says "All American". I couldn't resist getting it.

That same weekend we were able to get together with one of Phil's old mission companions. Nate happens to be our good friend Julia's brother-in-law. It was nice seeing Becca and Nate and always fun getting together with the Farmer's.

Seriously, go Phil! That's great news and how cute were the star cookies/brownies - loved them. And I loved Rosie's shirt, Mandi and Bryce got the same one for their dog!
