4:00 tea at American Girl with lovely background music.
Cheers to you birthday girl!
By the smile on her face I'm pretty sure Ryan is having the time of her life!
Jane at her 7:30 hair appointment! Notice the cape and her chair-

I will never forget her excitement and the look on her face when we walked in to American Girl. What a great way to spend your 8th birthday! Thanks for the memories Ry Bray!

When Ryan came into our room this morning at 1:56 I immediately flashed back eight years ago when I was in the delivery room fighting to give birth to my first born. The memory of the nurses, yes...nurses standing on stools pushing on my stomach and me trying to push with Mark cheering me on is still so vivid. I thought it was never going to end but at 2:13 that morning I became a mother for the first time. Thanks for making the past eight years so special Ry Bray. They have flown by just like everyone said they would and just think that in another eight years you will be driving!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RY BRAY! Here's to celebrating many more birthdays with you and to making memories along the way.

I Love Me Family

This is Jack's page from his class Valentine book. His teacher has all of the kids create a page and then she compiles them into a book. Each child gets a turn to take it home to share with their family. I will say that this is definitely a keeper.....

SCAT on my MAT

Scat on my mat...kind of sounds like something out of a Dr. Seuss book doesn't it? Well this is what I woke up to yesterday morning when I stepped out to get the paper. Gross huh?

Well I spent a little bit of time on the computer looking up all different kinds of "scat" to determine exactly what kind it could be. I actually learned this is another name for animal fecal dropping-YUCK. Anyway, I thought it would be a good idea to know what is lurking around so it wouldn't be much of a surprise to me in case it is "scatting" when I open my door to let Junie out at night or early in the morning.

When I was coming home from taking the kids to school this morning there was a robin on my mat and of course when I went to check there was a fresh new pile of scat.

HELP-What do you all think? Could this be from a robin? Comment please!

Best Night EVER!

The boys watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!
Jane's first sleepover!

My sister and I have the best brother and sister-in-law a person could ask for! They had a slumber party with their nieces & nephews on Saturday night so we (the parental units) could go party our asses off!

The kids had a blast making heart shaped pizzas and hanging out with their aunt and uncle overnight! They had all of their bases covered and even made PINK pancakes & PINK cinnamon rolls for Valentine's Day breakfast! You guys are the best and thanks again for making our kiddos so happy! Hopefully you had some energy left to enjoy your first Valentine's Day as husband and wife.

Thank You Ed

I can't THANK YOU enough Mr. Hightower and mother nature! Thank you so much for my much needed snowday. Because of you, I'm caught up on my laundry, cleaning and rest! I even made homemade broccoli soup for dinner. It was a busy weekend and now I'm ready to tackle the rest of the week.

Ryan and Kylie
I'm glad Jill brought her camera because I didn't! We did remember to bring our flip video cam but forgot to use it. Oh well, had a great time meeting friends in Paducah, KY on Saturday and the kids thought it was super cool to stay in a hotel and swim inside! Ahh, the little things in life!
Hopefully we will see them sooner rather than later!

Show & Tell

It's Jack's turn to bring snack today for his class which also means it's his day for show and tell. Snoopy will be meeting all of his classmates today...hope it goes well!

Looks like my camera on my phone is starting to go out again....see the grainy lines? Not good

My friend Jill called me this morning because she had some "neat" advice for me since Jack was diagnosed with pneumonia last Saturday. This is my friend who has more energy than anyone I know and who ran a marathon when she was 8 weeks pregnant with her son Cash. Her first text came at 6:45 a.m. and by then she had probably fed her three children, ran 6 miles, showered and cleaned the house.

Anyway, let's get back to her advice. Her three kids have had a cold and cough so her mom told her to cut off the top of the onion (leave the peel on) and set it in their bedroom. Her mother is usually right so she did it and everyone is feeling better today.

Google it and read about all the different stories....It also will take the smell of paint out of a room!
