Vacation & Family....

Good Morning... We had one of William's sisters and her kids in this week. It was so nice to see them. We had not seen them in over a year, so that was a nice visit. Ian her youngest had a birthday while they were here and so we did some cupcakes one night and William's aunt came out to see them too. Of course, the kids loved and enjoyed seeing their cousins. They hated to see them go. Anyways!

Hailey went to Glorieta last Sunday. I miss her terribly. They post pictures of her on their web page so at least i get to see those. She looks like she's having a great time. This is the longest we've ever been without her. We will pick her up on Friday the 4th. I miss my baby! :(

We are heading out in the morning for vacation. Yeah! :) We will be driving up and staying next week in Glorieta, New Mexico for the week and then on Friday once we pick up Hailey we will be going to my Granny and Pawpaw's house for a few days. I'm so excited! I haven't been there since I was a teen. I see them almost every year but I just haven't been to their house since then. So I'm so so so so excited. I always loved it there. They live at the base of the mountains in Alamogordo, New Mexico. It's desert there but it's just beautiful. I will have tons of pictures to post when I get back. Well, I have to run! I will see you guys in two weeks. Hope you all have a wonderful week. Happy early July 4th!

New Room....

Good Morning! Well, I have been busy the last few day decorating the girls bedroom. Well, with the mujch needed help of friends too. I had never really done anything with it. So we finally go around to it. It turned out really really cute. They love the polka dots so we went with that and made it a little bit older girls room. I surprised them. They had no idea I was doing it. Well, Hailey still hasn't seen it. She is at summer camp. But Lauren came home last night and she loved it. Of course, she wanted to know why I wouldn't do the polka dots all over the whole room. Ha! Those were alot harder than they look. But it's fun! They will love it. I even got to sleep in their new room last night. Lauren didn't want to sleep by herself but she needed to be in her new room. Ha! Fun! Fun!

Splash Station

A friend came in town yesterday and called to see if we could meet for a little visit. So we met her at Splash Station. It's a miniture water park here close by our home. The kids had a great time. It was small enough I could let Lauren and Hailey roam around by themselves and the boys and I stayed in the little kid area. They all had a blast. Landon does not like water and so he and I stayed in the shade but he had fun just playing in his chair and around the table. We had a nice visit with our friends too. It was great to see them. Nothing like a good ol water park... Oh yeah, I'm not sure who the other kid is in the top picture. I guess he just thought he'd like to be apart of our picture. So no, I didn't have any other children. he he he...

"The Gang + 1?"




Is this the cutest or what?

Brotherly Sympathy...

I have been trying to get this shot for weeks and I finally got one. It's not the best but it will do. Allen is in trouble alot, bless his heart. He just can't seem to help it. Anyways, William started having him put his nose on this wall for his time out. Less playing that way and he can't see anyone. Anyways, he goes there quite often and so Landon has decided that he will join him, out of sympathy, I guess. It's so sweet, he'll run over there and stand there with him. Usually for just a second but none the less. Sometimes he even takes his little arm and wraps it around his leg. I guess for love and support. I have to say it's just so darn cute. Or maybe he's just practicing. I haven't quite decided. Ha!

It's over!!!!

Yeah! The school year is over. Well it will being another three hours or so. But I'm officially done. Whoo Hoo! :) This has been just a crazy week. Hailey had a graduation/awards ceremony on Monday night then Lauren's and Bryan's was yesterday. Hailey's was a little sad. It made me really realize that she's growing up and no longer a baby. She's an official preteen I guess you'd say. Wow! She looked so big and grown up, up there on that stage. They made it really special too. It's been a good week just crazy. So I can say I'm glad they will be off for awhile. Now, I'm sure it won't last long. Probably by Monday I'll be begging for school to start again. He he he he.... Hopefully not! I guess that will be another post all together. Ha! Well, I best run. I'm playing the good mom today, a Mrs. Clever roll, and making cookies to celebrate. How good am I??? he he he... Hey I even put special notes in all their lunch boxes today telling them how proud I was. Brownie Points!!! :) Yea I know it's corny but they love it. I got to give them short glimpses of love so they will have something good to tell there therapist later in life, especially since my main goal in life it to torture them and embarrass them at all costs. (that's just another post w/ a bit of frustration) Ha! Love ya!
