Happy Birthday Mom!

My Mom's birthday is today. She is helping out up at Girl's camp on her birthday. I'm sure that there are other places that she would rather be, and other things she could be doing that would be more enjoyable. It's just another example of the type of person she is. She is always willing to help. She has SO many skills and talents, and she is always ready to share them with others. She loves the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Church and it's programs. So maybe I was wrong. Maybe there isn't anywhere else she would rather be. Happy Birthday Mom!
I love you.

Girl's Night

Finally after months of anticipation we got to have our night on the "D list"!

We had such a fun time on Saturday!

Jennifer, Megan, Barbara, Jane and I went to dinner and a show.

It's always nice to spend an evening laughing with good friends.

Here's my list (or HML) just for Megs!

The problem with this assignment for me was that I included a lot of my "faves" in my first post. Then I read everyone else's lists and I could only think of the things that were already written by other people. So I've been trying to think outside of the box and this is what I've come up with.
Some of my favorite things are:


* The sound of my boys singing along with the radio as loud as they can
* Dates with Chad
* Thunder storms
* A big fat tip @ work
* When my guys are all Handsome and dressed up
* flip flops
* Rapture perfume
* Going on trips
* baseball caps on a "bad hair day"
* Air conditioning
* People magazine
* good friends
* dessert
* jokes
* Having a clean house
* something new popping up in our garden
* A good book that I can't put down
* Winning (especially if I beat Chad)
* Pedicures
* Family Days
* When my kids play with eachother (nicely)
* Sleeping in
* Ya Ya night
* Getting packages in the mail
* I love Lucy re-runs
* Camping
* Shrimp Scampi ( my Dad's, or Carrabba's)
* Christmas lights

Congratulations Curtis and Rachel!!!

We are so excited that Curt and Rachel are going to be having a new baby next January!!!!!

Air Jacob



It's that time of year again and basketball camp is well under way.
What a difference a year can make! He's taller, and more coordinated. He understands the game better, and he has a MUCH improved attitude this year! (even his coach noticed, I guess Jake left an impression last year. . )

Jacob can dribble and pass (which he only does when he has to), but his favorite thing to do of course is to shoot (which he does whether he's supposed to or not). And I hate to admit it but he is a total CHEATER. I think he gets it from his Uncle Curtis. . .

Chad was able to come and watch him on Thursday. Jacob was so excited when he saw Chad walk into the gym that he ran all the way across the floor screaming Daddy! Daddy! DADDY!!!!!!!!!!!! And proceeded to show off all of his dirty tricks for the rest of the hour. It was hard to tell if Chad was embarrassed or impressed.

Honestly we are both very proud of Jake he's doing extremely well, and we're glad that he's enjoying himself out there.

My boys and their toys


Chad and the boys love to play with their Geo Trax (that's a train set for those of you who may be out of the loop when it comes to super cool toys). Chad's Grandparents Carl and Helen got Jacob his first set when he was two years old and he's been collecting them ever since. We now have just about enough of them to take over the world.

They like to make cities with them and then get several trains going at the same time (not to mention the airplane, and the boat) and then of course they like to CRASH the trains into each other and see whose train can survive. . .
Chad says that he likes to spend time playing with the boys, which I know is true. But I also know that he's having just as much fun crashing those trains as they are, and he's lucky that the boys are nice enough to share their toys with him!
I do enjoy watching them have a good time together. I almost don't care that it takes up the entire family room. . . almost. You might be interested to know that this isn't even the entire collection!

Sometimes a picture says it the best

When he got home from church today, Matthew had an altercation with the bunk bed.


The bunk bed won.

But don't tell Matt.
