You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. some may be significant only to you. some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience. - President Hinckley

Baptism Invitation

Some Nancy Pics

So, a while ago Nancy passed away. Just before she did -literally weeks prior she celebrated a birthday. Hunter made her a card and we got to watch her open presents and spend some time with her. Her daughter took a few snapshots of the gathering....cherished I tell you...cherished.

For fun my Mom likes to.....

The second graders did "Muffins for Mom" on Friday. I went and Hunter had made me a portrait of myslef and a little book filled with information about me. my favorite page is might not be able to see if very well, so I will type the text of what he wrote beneath the picture....I laughed so hard when I saw really is one of my favorite things to do.

"For fun my Mom likes to play watch the back of her eyelids. This is how you play. You close your eyes and try to sleep and who ever sleeps the longest wins. "

Thanks Hunter - I loved it - I loved Muffins for Moms with you!

Hunter's Birthday Party or shall we say Pahr-tay?

So, My best best girlfriend (besides my sisters- well she is a sister) was here for Hunter's birthday party. We planned it for an hour and a half and they came ate lunch and then went on a scavenger hunt through the neighborhood. It was pure craziness. The rules were, no going in people's yards, and you had to stay together. After the first clue was read, it was obvious that those rules didn't sink in. But, hey when you've got 11 little boys running around it's crazy anyway. I think they had fun. Marie and I drove the rhino behind them while they "hunted." We had to hurry to finish because I didn't plan for enough we ran home after I gave them the last 5 clues and told them to run - had cake, opened presents and sang happy birthday. Anyway, it was great- I am glad Marie was here. She really appreciated one of Hunter's friends who constantly complained about everything we did...including the pizza, the scavenger hunt and not having mint chocolate chip ice cream to go with the cake that he didn't care for.

A Visit from Ree

So, Marie came at the end of April and stayed for a few days! We LOVE REE! Sadly, we didn't take any pictures with her, but she got some of some of my kids. We went out with the family to Texas Roadhouse - which my kids loved! And we stayed up late and hung out . Gwennie was very concerned that Marie isn't married yet and she's the same age as I was cute - she has decided she should marry Santa claus because he has dumped the Mrs. So, Marie is going to seek him out....that means more gifts for close friends and family year round! :)
