Another Dance, just a Few More and They Will Be Done! :(

Sunday night was another dance for Alex. It was the high school sorrority/fraternity's winter dance. Kind of sad that each dance she attends will be the last one I will have a daughter going to. In a few years, I will have a son going to these. Now that is even more weird!!

As you can see, they had fun. Even after the long talk from John. I think the guys expect this talk now!!

Happy Birthday Beth!!

Okay, today is Beth's Birthday. Everybody dance now! Dunt, dunt, dunt, dunt!! Happy Birthday Beth! I tried finding a picture to post and realized Beth usually hides from the camera. I found this one and some of her in her bathing suit at the beach and some pregnant. I thought she would like this one better. I almost posted one of her in her bathing suit in our younger years where Nancy, Sara, and I were also in our suits admiring something she had that we didn't, but um, we were ALL in our suits, and though I only wish I looked like that now, I didn't know if I would still be alive if I printed it. But Beth, YOU know the picture and you know how GOOD we all looked, don't you? Love you and hope your day is great!!

After reading Ashley's blog about "Bunny" I had to put these pics up from this summer. I think Ashley put a scrapbook page she had made about bunny on her blog at one time, but I felt bunny must be showcased. He is that important. (Kind of like Patrick's fish blanket.)

Her blog did not share our end of it. We were just heading out to the basketball game to see Alex. John was there ahead of us and Dani and I were kind of waiting until closer to halftime. Well, when Ashley called we said yeah, we'll drop him off before we go up to the game. On our way to Ashley's house, the phone rang and John said the second quarter had already started. He asked why I was going to Ashley's first, since there wasn't much time, I told him about Bunny and he immediately understood the gravity of the missing Bunny at bedtime. We were in a mad dash to drop Bunny off and still make it to the game in time. We pulled in to the driveway, Dani made the pass of Bunny to Brian at the door and ran back to the car. We then rushed back to the school. In the meantime Alex calls us asking if we were there yet. Dani, in her wisdom suggested we park in the second parking lot and run from there. I, imn my wisdom, had to try and get a closer spot, but alas there were none and we had to go back to the lot Dani suggested in the first place. Of course, as we were running (me - gasping and running), I got to hear "I told you so!" Well, we did make it in time and I got to take pictures, but it was quite a little adventure. I just thought I would share the WHOLE Bunny experience. Now, you know the REST of the story!! (Anyone know what THAT is from?)

Homecoming Court

Alex was on the Homecoming Court last night. She looked so beautiful, as always. She didn't pick her own escort, they were assigned. They were assigned one of the guys in the running for "King". She said he is a very nice guy and it looked like it as she was laughing with him out on the court. She didn't win Queen, but said she didn't expect to, within minutes of it being over, she was changed and hanging out with friends. I am proud of you Alex!

And, is this a cute pic of Dani and John or what!?

Happy Birthday Mom!!

There is no way I can beat Kristy's post. But I had to say Happy Birthday to the world's best Mom on my blog also. Thanks for being there for all of us. Most of us turned out OK! You guess which ones didn't .... ha ha.

I thought we could look at you when you were young. Did this young lady know she would become the tired Mom of 8 children?

Love you and Happy Birthday!!

Speaking of Old Pictures

A while back Uncle Lawrence gave me this to give to Mom. I told her about it, but you see that she doesn't have it in her hands. Isn't he handsome?

And how old is he here Mom?
