Hey ya'all! Another day couped up indoors.... ARGH!
Kim came over to discuss life..... and we did! But, no major conclusions! We had some laughs, and shopped e-bay.
Boys are rowdy, but not too many complaints.
K, waiting on work, 1st out for no vacancies. Jeffey on his way home from Gillette....

It's a party.....

"Summer vacation is a party!"
My kids have proclaimed. Staying up late, eating late supper, and not bathing everyday.... Yep, even sleeping in the living room with tons of blankets! YIPPEEE! They are having a hay-day....

Me, well, I am trying to keep them from wrestling and hurting each other. Swinging bats, and golf clubs, and flying balls have proved to be dangerous in the back yard. So, injuries are bound to happen no matter what! They are having a great time! We got out their tent to play in yesterday.... they proceeded to smash all of the tent poles..... it went to the dumpster within a couple of hours. BOYS!!!! They are so rambunctious! ARGH!

We went for a long bike ride with Angie yesterday while Jeffey had a nap. Boy, I am feeling it in my thighs.... no pain, no gain, huh? Oh, my lettuce is up, and can't wait to eat some! I did get my tomatoes and cukes in the ground before the rain. Jeff has yet to get his in, as they must harden off first... Some of my iris are blooming, and can't wait until the red ones bloom, they are my favorite ones.

Well, bought our tickets for a Rockies game on the 10th of June. We are planning a trip to the zoo, and to Casa Bonita's. I have never been to any of these places, and am pretty excited! I have only been to the downtown (old) airport. My Ma said, yes I have been to the zoo as a baby. Hmmm, guess it's time we go to Denver. Jeff hasn't been either, so an adventure awaits us! YEA! Any suggestions for places for us not to miss while there?????We will leave whenever Jeff gets in from work, and stay only a couple of days.

Okay, Jeffey is making brunch. I told him to try to make it low-fat...... we will see!

Have a great day!

Hmmmm, vacation goes too fast!

(MOPS Mother Daughter Tea 2008)


Whew! What a fast four days I have had! Since Monday, I have helped my Ma with cleaning the cabin, and worked on lots of other projects with friends. I made bracelets for the kids teachers for thank you gifts. They really loved them.... And I had fun making them. I also finished up a bunch of other odds and ends. Most avoided working inside the house! I love to work on my yard, and it needs lots of work this year. Things are really overgrown, and need divided. Please come with your gloves and I will share some stuff with you. I have purple cone flowers, hens & chicks and some white liatris, and lambs ear. I think there is more, but need to access my moving things around.

Anyhow, we went to Rapid yesterday and spent way too much money in H.L.! I had a great time and loved the company! We ate good, laughed a lot, and got rained on. It was fun..... kids had a great time with Papa playing games and ect. Today, they went fishing for a while with Papa, while I pulled weeds and put on pre-emergent. They caught several fish, too! Jeffey went to work this afternoon, and let me have a nap since we didn't get home from Rapid until 1:30am! Whew! POWER SHOPPIN'!

Can't wait to do it again!

WE HAD A GREAT WEEKEND! I spent Friday night with my family, chillin' and planting garden stuff.

Yippee!~ I got something done! YEA!

Yesterday, after a grueling bit of walking, crunches and sit-ups, I got some cards made for my MOPS secret sister. Aren't they cute?
Meggie went to preschool and got to visit for a few hours. She loved it! She didn't even notice when I left???? AWWWW! It was glorious!
K, lot to do..... Have a great day and I am so looking forward to our girlfriends getaway at the cabin this Saturday! MARGARITAS & CHOCOLATE, here I come!

Kicked out?!?!?!

Okay, we decided to go to Chadron with Daddy and eat Chinese and go to the movie. SO, all went well until we got to the movie. We got there early(all 5 of us) and sat down in the middle of the theater with our popcorn. Meggie was a little squirmy, but pretty good. The movie started and of course we had to go to the bathroom a few times, since we drank a little pop! SO, I took Meg, and she fell down in the isle on the way back.......cry, she did. So the next time we went potty, the usher asked us to keep it down, as Meggie was loud and disruptive! AND SOMEONE complained about us?!?!?! Okay, so we sat back down with the boys and made a true effort to keep it down. Meggie just climbed around on her seat and said a few things. Then here comes the usher AGAIN! Asked us to LEAVE! This was within the first 35 minutes of the movie! I was appalled! I have heard louder teenagers than Meggie! SO, I will be calling the manager today ans settling this. We paid for Meggie, to be at the movie! Yep, I am still fuming! I sat in the vehicle for an hour waiting on the boys to see their movie we paid over $40 to see......


Have a great day, it's beautiful out!

"No, kissin' me!" Meggie, said!

Poor Preston!

Take A Breather.....

(Mops photos taken by Angie)
Okay, I know that I say this quite often, but, where does the time go? Geeze, life is just zooming by..... A great friend of mine, Kimberly Bean recently spoke to my heart. She said, "Never pass up an opportunity to kiss and hug your children, you never know when it might be the last." Saying this, she had tears in her eyes, as she was remembering her dearly departed (too soon) daughter, Kristen. She passed away in a accident at age 15. Brings tears to my eyes too. Bless Kim for making it through the tough stuff, and being a stronger person, too. Happy Mothers Day everyone!

Oh this week, funny stuff happened. First, when driving the boys to Gma & Papas, it was muddy. So, we had to "gun it" through a few big muddy patches to make it through. SO, we did slosh around a little, and Matt says, "This REALLY is a racing mini-van!" Tee HEe!

Then, Andy and Sydney went to the store to pick up a few items for me. Unbeknownst to us, Syd took her own money and purchased her a can of whipped topping! YUMMY! Giggle! She and Andy said! They ate the WHOLE can within the 4 block from Lisa's. Then they threw the evidence in a dumpster, so that we wouldn't know. BUT, they proclaimed their purchase as soon as they arrived! TOO FUNNY! WHAT A HOOT!

Finally, Meggie at the MOPS party last night, refused to kiss her pal, Preston! Too Funny!

Okay, What have I been up to? Well, I have helped Aunty with a crafty scrap project. Then made quite a few earrings, and bracelets. I have also done quite a bit of Chamber stuff..... Ummm, oh yea tried to keep the house cleaner. And lastly, yep, work... We have been trying to make it through the last days of school. Andy is hating it. Matt is sad to leave Mrs. Limbach. He loves her soooo much.

Last night we had a Mother/Daughter Tea for MOPS. I took my Ma, and Auntie Marisa, and Megg. We all had a great time! I think that it was the best MOPS meeting EVER! I had a great time! Only, it went too fast! We made a nifty craft by Brandi, and ate yummy cucumber sands, with lots of yummy desserts... and cheesecake made by Auntie!

Well, off to the elliptical to work off the cheesecake.

When is winter over??????

(Our project last year, the bricking of our backyard.)

Whewie! What a week! We have been busy with the sicko-Meggie. She is fully recuperated now. I think she is making up for lost time as she had two bowls of cereal this morn. Yep, the boys were up early. They can't seem to sleep in..... not even Mommy gets too, either. They were arguing in the kitchen about their cereal, and woke Meg & I up. So, here we are...blogging. Oh, and coffee drinking.

Well, not all that much going on here. Just waiting on the snow to melt so that we can get the gardening started. I have some somewhat big plans this spring. Just to replace some trees, and move some perennials. I also am planning to re-do the corner area on our lot. It is a weed magnet since the neighbors don't give a damn about their property. SO, I am going to rock it all and plant some creeping junipers. LOW MAINTENANCE! Yes, I have said it. I just don't think I have the time to keep up with the neighbors weed seeds floating into my yard......

Okay, Meggie and I are off to snuggle. She is such a dolly! That's what her daddy says!

Have a great Sunday, I am 1 time out waiting for the phone to ring............
