Lets see....it has been a LONG time since I've used this blog...my heart still wants to write...but I am not really good at it. So maybe I will just say what ever and post some pics....yeah, that sounds about right for me. :)

This year has been very challenging physically for me...I should have been blogging all along the way! However, I have kept a prayer journal...mostly because I did not want my sometimes ugly attitude to be made public. God was really working some things out in me that needed lots of purging. Some would think as life goes on that it gets easier...for the most part it does. There are just some things that are still painful and people still can hurt us...it's what we choose to do with those hurts that make us better people.

Miki...thanks for the love!!!

So here are some pics...
Camping with wonderful friends in beautiful Rocky mtn natl park.

My rendition of cherry blossoms for a couples event at church.

My little drummer boy...too cute!
My skinny but fast and handsome runner...
First hike in a very long time...crutches and all :)

If I could have it all....

I would love to sing like Amy Winehouse...something about her REHAB song....love her voice!

I would have Michelle Obamas arms...I know there are better pics out there, I just couldn't find any...work computer won't let you search images.

I would want Meagan Foxes hair and BEAUTIFUL blue eyes.
...and Jennifer Annistons cute bod!
But most of all, I would love to have Laura Bush's intellect, class, and
tenacity! She is my hero!
My wonderful HUBBY and the kiddos...I wouldn't change for the WORLD!
They are my reason for being!
If you could have it all...what would you pick?

I am soooo proud of my boys. This weekend was their first ever track meet. Si ran a 7 min mile! Yoohoo! He came in 5th...so he has his work to do. He has a great build for track and he is determined to practice to run the mile in 6 minutes or below. Si likes distance....me, even though I ran track in HS, I just wanted to get it over with...so I was a sprinter. Guess that doesn't say much for my stamina! JJ is my sprinter....fast and furious...that's the way to go!

Oh, and this is rich...about a month ago between church services, Si was talking to some girls...and he was actually FLIRTING! That made me do a double take! I can remember the first middle school dance of the year...he did not want to go because he didn't think it was worth $5.00 to eat pizza and just sit there! So here is a pic of him talking amoungst his peers at the meet.
We had to leave the meet early because we were BBQing at 5. Our couples group is so big, we wanted to just hang out and get to know a couple of people. The rain threatened it some, but we endured. After dinner, the kids challenged the men to kickball. Boy, the dad's do not have ANY mercy for for the kids, including girls...the mom's kept trying to convince them to take it easy on them, but much to our dismay, they acted terrible! Especially when they scored or when they got a kid out! Men!

There were 7 families altoghter. We were all so tired for church the next day!!!!

Here are the kids...(17 in all) waiting for their turn to kick.
This last pic is a view from our deck....we are so blessed to live here!

What fun stuff did you do on your weekend?

Everytime I use this knife....
I remember the Koz family...one Thanksgiving they left it at my house....and then they moved and I never got it back to them.

Everytime I play this or wish I had someone to play it with...... I remember Monika...and the way she said "lead peep"

Everytime I see a.... I think of My Nobody.....happy "bird"day to you too!

Everytime I read the Sunday ads...
. I think of Amy....oh miss the days of sitting "shopping" after church! We love Target!
Everytime I hear this song...."Grace Like Rain" I think of Teresa....I love this song!
Everytime I think about a brand new couple over for dinner....

I think of Andrea....she thought I was a stalker inviting a total stranger to dinner....before she knew me of course!
Everytime I play..... I think of the Francis family...they were our first friends and card buddies in OK!
Everytime I see something shiny....

Projects, book club and weather

This weekend was really weird. Friday night we had a huge thunder and lightening storm. It made me miss OK....pretty much had a rainy COLD weekend. Very strange weather for here. We even had a tornado touch down at Southlands Mall and it turned over some cars! No one was hurt PTL!

Several topics come to my mind today:

1. My wonderful friend Betsy is making her way home after TWO long weeks in CA! Woohoo! I can't wait! She made me take some days off work to play with her...yep, she twisted my arm ;) She reminds me so much of Michelle O. They would get along great.

2. Trying to work today is almost impossile. Can't type or talk...I think it is the weird weather.

3. I am working on several projects...aprons, scrapbook pages, pj shorts and I want to start a quilt. Just take a look at this YUMMY fabric from Amy Butler...
This is called August Fields, Wild Bouquet.
Or what about this one....
This one is Midwestern modern, Pink Dahlia.

Thanks Jaye for introducing me to this wonderful designer!

4. My book club is reading "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers. I just started the book on Friday and it seems to be a great read. The beginning is very sad and since Saundra would not tell me the ending, I had to read if for myself... otherwise I would have been depressed during the 300 or so pages. I am bad about reading the endings first!
I need to hurry and read it, (the middle portion anyway...lol) as I am hosting the girls on June 16th...wow, that is next week! Where does the time go?
Anyone have any suggestions for books to read?
