FUN Weekend!

My friend Mindy came to visit for the three day weekend and we made the most of it! I dragged that girl everywhere you can think of! We went shopping, saw the new Indiana Jones movie (with a bag full of candy from Wal-Mart), watched the UFC fights at Jana's house, helped Connor with his talk on Sunday (he did AWESOME), family dinner at Heather's new house, dancing at Stoney's, yummy food at B.J's Restaurant and saw Mamma Mia ($55 tickets...rad!) and topped it off watching some sweet karaoke at the House of Blues. Man, regular life was hard to go back to this morning.

But the boys & I just got back from riding bikes at the park and visiting the goats and new kittens at Lindsay Stone's house....so regular life is pretty great too!!!!!!!

We saw so many funny things while jetten around the town. We saw this guy selling a bunch of stuff by the side of the road in the middle of no where. So weird isn't it? I think he liked having his picture taken. And then we saw a golf cart at the AM PM....whatever works. Gas IS expensive, I know...


Connor is so ready for Kindergarten this year! Here are some pics from his preschool graduation. I love to watch him in any little production. He always looks right at me and tries to do a good job. I'm sure of one thing...that kids not shy at all!
Miss Tina isn't teaching next year so we are so glad we could have her while we did! She is amazing!
And so are all the family that came to show Connor some love.... thanks everybody for coming!

What the heck?

I was holding Wyatt this morning and didn't even notice his feet. I got him situated on my bed watching cartoons and then saw that his feet were huge! On one foot he had 4 socks on and on the other foot he had 5 socks on! When I asked him about it he said he was Spiderman. Not too sure how that relates...

Things that make me SMILE

Wyatt wore this on his belt loop the whole day before and when I got him up that morning...he had it attached to his pull up. Love it.

I just discovered this thanks to Kristen. So easy! Wyatt gets the giggles when I get it out because he is so excited to eat waffles.

This car made me think of the LVHS parking lot for some reason ...from my day. Especially if it had glitter in the paint. Or was lime green and and had a tiny chain-looking steering wheel. Does anyone even remember that stuff besides me?

I love Connor's "ready" position as pitcher. He caught a fly ball recently at one of his games. I'm sure it was an accident :)

Connor's project. I love the cars taped to the bottom.

Mother's Day 2008

Mother's Day is always special because I love being a mom and I have so much gratitude for my mom and Robin. I have received so much service at their finger tips...

Thank you Mom for your example of giving of yourself time and time again with nothing expected in return. You are one of the most selfless people I know and I love you. Your actions over the years speak much louder than any of the lessons you ever gave. I love you.

However....the day always comes and goes quietly each year with the same feeling in my heart. I'm stealing this from a friend of mine ( I hope you don't mind!) because it captures exactly how I feel about my two sweet boys I have in my care.

"I am overwhelmed by my inadequacy, but in awe of their unconditional love. I believe with all my heart that they deserve better in their lives. I cannot possibly put into words how much love, happiness, & joy I want for them. Truly, they give me life, they give me purpose."

I love those two fuzzy headed, wild, little boys. I love how Connor takes care of me & Wyatt. I love how he sings to me. I love how Wyatt talks in different silly voices and makes faces at himself in the mirror. I love how we all snuggle in my bed and watch movies together. I love the dandelions they pick for me to put in my hair and how they always tell me I look pretty. I love how Wyatt tells me, "you best"

I hope they know I love them. I hope they know I'm trying my best.

The Weekend

I took my fire pit/bowl to my friend's house Saturday night and we made Smores with her kids and mine. She has four kids and with all of them together....it's a total party.

Me & Kristen

Wyatt's smore face

Connor is lovin him some of this little girl...they fell asleep seperately, then I found them together later like this below.

they think baths in mom's bathtub are the best

Wyatt is bored with paper I think...he's reached that stage...It's all throughout the house. Even on my car door where you put in the key.
