  No I am horrible but my kids do understand the meaning of the day

Pioneer Day


The 4th grade at my kids school had Pioneer Day. They had been studying about Pioneers for about a month. It is an all day event, they dress up, they had 8 stations to go to such as candle making, chores, food testing, making ice cream, making a pioneer picture frame, corn husk dolls, pictures of them self and I cant remember the last one. They had a really cute necklace thing with all the kids names on them made and a cute blue tin cup with the year and there names on them. They were served a pioneer type lunch, and at the end they did all kinds of different types of dancing like square dancing. I was the coordinator for the corn husk dolls and it was a lot of fun.

Ryan's 8th B-Day

Yesterday was Ryan's 8th B-day. He decided not to have a party with friends this year he just wanted his grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle and cousins over. He wanted to go for pizza for dinner then everyone back to our house for presents, cake and ice cream. Well that is the way the day was suppose to go. Ryan had a friends b-day party to go to but I got side tracked with some drama, that I made him miss it then he wanted me to make him a vanilla and chocolate cake and I some how messed it up. I have made many cakes and never messed one up as bad as I did not one but both cakes, I called it the mountain cake. Then grandma and grandpa had more important planes so they cancelled at the last minute. So yes Ryan had a few disappointments today but he was a trooper and did not complain at all. I think I was more disappointed in the grandparent and the cake disaster then he was but oh well he had a good day and that is all that really matters to me.

White Hair

So I said I don't feel old and I don't think I look 30 but today when I was looking in the mirror I saw a white hair. No not grey it was as white as white can get. I saved it so I can show Kevin when he gets home from work. It is in a plastic baggy on on my fridge ready for him to see. Now I feel old and I must look older for me to already be getting white hair.

   This is what I will look like soon and yes I look like a super hero, well atleast in my kids eyes.

Turning 29 "30"

  Well on the 14th Jen and I turned 29 "30". I was so not looking forward to this day. Not because I am getting older because I feel younger then 30, but because I want another baby and I have always said once I turn 30 I would not even consider another baby. Well I really cant have a baby because Kev had a vasectomy 8 years ago but I was still hoping and dreaming that a miracle would happen and one of his swimmers would get through and we would have a baby but there was no such luck. I know I have 3 perfect healthy kids and they are good in school and well behaved, we get complements from strangers often at how good our kids are, but for the last 4 years I have wanted a baby so bad. I know about 20 friends and family members that are prego or have had a baby in the last 2 years. I have been sad for me but happy for most of them, but I have to say a couple of them don't deserve to be a parent and it makes me so mad because I know I am a good parent and my kids would always come first and I cant have any more. Oh well enough of feeling sorry for myself.

  Well the day over all was a good day Kevin asked what I wanted for my birthday and I said for him to take the day off and he surprised me and did. We went to the mall looking for birthday presents for Ryan and then we went to the cheesecake factory for lunch, we had never been there before and I really did not care for it. It was $30 for the 2 of us and all we got was a small side salad, a Cesar salad, a side of fries and 2 sodas and it cost that much. WOW

We look good for 30 oh I mean 29!!!

Hailey is really one of the cutest little girls but she wanted me to put this picture up so I did for her

Joe's Poetry Night

Joe came home sick on May 12th with 101.7 fever and by the end of the night it was at 103.7. He was upset because on the 13th was poetry night for all of the 3rd grade and he really wanted to go. When he woke up on the 13th he still had a fever but really wanted to go so I emailed his teacher and asked if it would be OK and he said of course because Joe has came so far since the beginning of the school year. Well I took his temp an hour before it started and it was at 102 but he wanted to go so I said what the hell someone else got him sick so why dont' be get a couple more people sick. J/K I was so nervous because when he is nervous he stutters and kids can be so mean and you can barley hear his voice "which is another blog for a later time". But when his turn came up he did a great job, no stuttering and all the kids used a microphone so you could hear him his voice was crackly but you could understand him so that was good. I now have my 2nd hard cover book of poems made by Alyssa and Joe.  In 2 years I will get Ryan's and they are the cutest book it is all poems that they thought of all on there own.

Mothers Day

I know this is a late post but I had the best mothers day this year I got breakfast in bed, Kevin got me patio chairs for my front porch that I have been wanting, and he let our kids pick out what ever they wanted for me and I have to say they did an awesome job. It amazes me how well my kids know me every thing they picked out was something I would of got for my self. We went for dinner at my moms and all the kids had a good time.

Alyssa got me the stuff with the diet coke

Joe got me the stuff with the Junior Mints

Ryan got me the stuff with the magazine

Ryan's Barnyard Moosical

All of the 1st grade at Ryan's school put on a Moosical musical. The theme was barnyard. It was so cute to watch, well at least what I could see of it because I had 2 big heads in front of me that made it hard to see. I did order the DVD so I get to see it better. Well from what i did get to see is that they tried to make it a little more well I am not sure what the kids today would call it but I will say hip. Ryan was not shy a bit which I am not sure why but it surprised me. He was the one that was waving and bowing to everyone as they clapped. He along with all the other kids did a great job.  Well I am gonna post a couple pictures not the best and not to many of them. Don't ask why, we will just have to say it was a long week and I was not thinking.
Ryan is the one waving :0)

I can't forget to say

Happy Birthday Tim
We miss you
