Utility room redo
Well I am finally getting the utility room painted and cabinets hung. In the mean time everything in that room is in the dinning room yuk! I choose a pumpkin color and it is bright and fun. Maybe it will make me in a better mood when I fold the piles of laundry on a daily basis!

Here are a few pictures that I wanted to post no order to them

Payton and her girls before the graduation dance

One cute little monster taking a bubble bath. 1 bubble bath = 20 minutes of peace for mom

the second little monster or as I call him Rico Swavey! (not sure how to spell that LOL) He is such a cute little ham! I am glad that he and the boys live by each other and can play well together. Thanks Gwyen and Chris for being such good neighbors with good conversation!
Patton the graduate.
Patton had his preschool graduation last Monday night. It is hard to believe that he will be in kindergarten it just seems like I just brought him home from the hospital. How time flies by! He wouldn't do the dance and ended up falling asleep on Mrs. Kincaid's lap.

How cute is he!

His teachers Mrs. Kincaid and Mrs. Bradham

Look a that awesome cake! WOW!

My mom the graduate.
Well my mom has taken classes ever since I could remember, and on may 10, 2001 she finally finished! She graduated from McKendree about 4 years ago with her bachelors in Nursing. This time she has graduated with her master in family nurse practitioner. I am very proud of you mom! Goals and dreams are never to far away. I am sure that we all have a few to accomplish.

Parker's letter to the President.
Parker has decided that he wants to go to the White House for vacation. We are going to try real hard to make that happen this summer. He wanted to write the President a letter and so he did. It took him a few hours to write it out all nice and neat and I was real proud of him for doing so. Way to go Parker. He also included a White squirrel figurine and some tomato seeds for the "First garden". If you click on the picture you can read his cute little letter.

I have a few things from the weeks passed. We just have been so busy and I just don't have the extra time to blog these days. Got to stay productive.

Payton and Aunt Melissa at Payton's Conformation. Wow doesn't she look so grown up

Payton did the living wax museum at school this year. She was Selena Gomez from wicked witch of Waverley. I had her speech recorded but for some reason it will not download.

This is Payton some friends of our children Issac and Avery

Avery was so excited to get her picture with Hanna Montana. She could hardly wait Thanks girls!
and last but not least Smiles! I could have the worst day in the world and take one look at him and it all goes away!

okay I know that the past couple of Tuesday's I have been behind. This week I have been a little bit under the weather and nothing sounds good or tastes good. I spent the day in bed on Tuesday and I am not 100%. My dad has the same thing so I guess we gave it to each other. Check back next week I had a good main dish planned. I will try to post some pictures of other things tomorrow. It seems like May has been a very busy month and I have a lot to post.

Well as usual time had got away from me. I have been a little bit on the busy side and apologize!
This week we made Ding Dong Delight!
All you have to do is take about 6-7 ding dongs cut them in half
Make 2 boxes instant chocolate pudding. You can add a little bit of whip cream if you want to your pudding.
pour that over the ding dongs and then add whip cream over the pudding. Crush up some oreo's and put on top and there you have it yummy!
Sorry George the boys did not pull out your name, but they did pull out Lori's.
Oh and George tell neighbor Larry thanks the boys had a great time!

Well opening day was this past sat. for the boys.
Patton's game was at 11:15. I missed it along with the ceremonies to. I could have changed my schedule around but I never did for Payton so I am not going to for the boys. The only thing I missed was Tim and Darlene Garrett. My heart breaks for her I could not imagine losing a child.
Brad said Patton had a good game. He looks so little out there in that big field. Parker's game was exciting. They all did some good fielding and they all had some good hits. I am glad that Parker has such a good coach that has the same beliefs as us. It is only a game, they are only 7, and really they are out to have fun not out for blood. Some of these parents tell their kids that they have to be the best that #1 is the only way to be. Do I have news for them, wait until they get older and then have fun with them! I guess now days the kids don't even have to be older to sas off to their parents and hurt other kids feelings with their constant competition! I just want to tell these kids to enjoy life! Yes I would be lying if I said I did want only the best for my kids, but they have to know that it won't be a constant thing all the time, sometimes they have to take the back seat and enjoy the view there to. Oh well I don't think I have to worry about my kids to much they have a lot of playmates and for the most part are decent kids.
See some of you at the ball park!
