The Best Mom in the World!

I guess I never realized what a wonderful family I came from until I had one of my own. Our family has a special kind of love. One of our greatest challenges as a family has been to have my sister and her family living in Utah. I know other families live far from each other and may think this sounds crazy. For my family though, this has been and continues to be very difficult for us all. This is a special tribute to the woman who leads our family. She is truly the strength, organizer, counselor, supporter, and the best example of what a mother should be. This past week she celebrated her 60th Birthday. I know this was a difficult one for her. Even though we keep telling her that today's 60 is the new 40, it has been hard to convince her. For her birthday, she went to the beach with my Aunt Rainy to visit my Grandpa. She is so cute...All she wanted to do was to buy a kite and have fun flying it for her birthday. So...Happy Birthday Mom! I love you, I treasure you, and above all I appreciate you for being you. You are truly THE BEST!

How Can You Sleep Like That Cason Andrew?

I had to take a picture of Cason the other night sleeping. One minute he was talking to me and the next he was sound asleep. I thought he looked so funny sleeping this way. These pictures made me smile and I hope they do the same for you!Cason Andrew not having a care in the world!
Isn't he just precious?

A Busy Day!

I am so excited. I spent about 4 hours today cleaning and redoing my plant shelfs. When Bret said to me the other day, "Honey, are you planning on doing anything with the empty plant shelfs?", I knew it was time to figure out what I wanted to do. They have been empty for about a year. I just didn't know what I wanted to do, so I did nothing. Anyways, they look so clean and organized. The result made me happy. I know, I need to get a life!This is the plant shelfs in my kitchen. They look so clean and organized.
This is my new WalMart bowl!

Cason Doing What Cason Does Best!

My dad said that I had posted cute pictures of Tyler and Braeden this week, but nothing of Cason. So...he took some pictures of Cason doing his favorite pastime. He loves Fridays because he goes to Papa and Meme's and it's a special day when he gets to take his DS to play with.
This is truly what Cason does best. We do try to control the amount of time he spends playing his DS,but when he does he goes into his own little world.
Wow! He actually paused it long enough for a smile!

Our Basketball Super Star!

PaPa & MeMe are the best! Tyler had a Basketball Game today at school. He asked Papa and Meme to come and so they did! Cason got to go too! Tyler played well and even made a 3-point shot. Can you tell I am a little proud? Great Job Ty and thank you Dad & Mom! You are the best.

Blue & Gold Cub Scout Dinner

Tonight Braeden's Cub Scouts had their Annual Blue & Gold Dinner. It is like a birthday party to honor scouting. We had a spaghetti dinner and Braeden performed in a small skit. We were commenting on how he is so confident being in front of people. We were so proud of him! Thank you Meme & Papa for coming and taking these pictures! We love you!
