Another Birthday

Today is my daddy's 70th birthday. He is the best daddy in the world. I know that I always knew that he loved me. We gave him a birthday party for him this past Saturday. We had a lot of family in. I wished more of his brothers would have come. But other than that we had a good time. I am so grateful for my family. I have the best ever.

Innocent looking toy huh? Well this and my Kaylee are the reason I did not attend church today. We were all dressed and ready to leave for church when I thought about my car keys. I looked in the usual places and then I started getting desperate. Ryan and I looked in the couch, turned the couches over; went thru the pants me and Mike wore yesterday. Looked everywhere we could possibly think about. Finally gave up at 9:45 and told Ryan to go ahead and get out of his church clothes. My darling hubby got up maybe an hour later and I told him I could not find my keys. He looked in three places and found it. Infurating huh? The place you ask: stuffed inside this innocent looking toy. Seems my darling daughter got hold of them sometime last night playing with them. Well my lesson is to remember to keep them up higher!!!!!

Spring Pictures

Well as you all know I am all about Spring. Today Nikki is going to get her cheerleading pictures made. We are going to sell posters and other things for fundraising. I enjoy doing things to help the kids. They both are such active individuals which I thoroughly approve of. Thay are also very helpful since Kaylee was born. I just enjoy them so much. We went to Riverfront Park to take pictures for Nikki and it was a beautiful day.

I can't believe how fast spring disappeared on me. I am so glad that it will be back in a couple of days. Kaylee and I have went to the Jungle Jym just about everday while it was pretty. She loves to swing on the swing sets. And the sandbox is fun time also. I hate that she keeps eating the sand though. And boy does she like to climb. Anything and everything. She was climbing before she walked. I have pictures if I can figure out how to put them on here. She is just so funny and so sweet. I am glad that she enjoys being outside as much as she does. We will probably live out side this summer and fall. I hope to get a summer pass to the city pool and I plan on taking her on trips and jus letting her enjoy being a toddler. The other two will have such busy summers with girls camp, scout camp, cheer camp, band camp, and other things I don't even know about yet. I am so excited.

I had my 34th birthday last Friday. It was great. And we just celebrated Nikki turning 13 on March the 15th. I really love celebrating birthdays. That is your special day that you usually do not have to share with anyone else. And let me tell you I got spoiled. My husband took me shopping and we also went out to eat. A double treat. And we got a babysitter for Kaylee so that we did not have to rush thru our meal. I felt so great.

You Are Clogs
You are a solid and down to earth person.
You seek – and almost always achieve – a really sound balance in your life.

You are stylish yet comfortable. Mellow but driven. Excited yet calm.
You are the perfect mesh of contradictions.

No matter what happens, you have the ability to stay well grounded in your life.
People know that they can truly depend on you.

You should live: In Europe

You should work: At a company dedicated to helping the world

This was fun to do. I got it from Rachels log.

Time to blog again

I am so bad about blogging and I have so much going on. We are looking for a new house there are 6 of us in this tiny 1100 square foot home. And we have no room . My house is such a mess I should be cleaning instead of blogging o well. Ten minutes won't make a difference. I wish I knew someone who could teach me how to clean quickly and easily and keep it that way. I so love having a clean house. My nephew Kyle moved in with us when his mom and brothers moved to Gainesboro. He wanted to stay here and finish school here. I hope he gets to graduate. We are working hard on getting him to that point. We love having him with us. Nikki did make the 8th grade cheerleading team we are so proud of her. I am so thankful that she was able to shine in this area. She is such a natural cheerleader. I am very proud that she has found a place for herself on the team. Her good friend Katherine also made the team so they will get to do a lot of things together and also her friend Leisel.
