My family.

Hard to believe Jess the Nurse/photographer took more than 200 photos. I love the 10 I have seen. Can't wait to get the rest.

End of Year Party

Carson's class had their end of year party yesterday. They are now third graders! I can barely believe that. My baby is going to Kindergarten? How can it be so?
We made bags with shrinky dink tags for the teachers. It is amazing how grown up she has become in just the last few months. She is so much fun now. I am counting on her to help me with a stubborn 5 year old this summer.

Critter Control Diagnosis = RATS!

Trap set!   CREEPSTER!  I will be taking pictures of everything that gets caught in trap.



SpideyWorm Von Chicken Pot Pie is a rooster.   I am trying to get a hilarious video of him practicing his crowing.   Many hours of entertainment.  He is going back to the farm on Sunday.  Sorry for the next 5 days of wake up calls to my neighbors.  Next up......Critter control is coming on Wednesday to help get rid of whatever is living in the Dody sidewalk holes.  Another fresh hole has been dug.  The Critter Control people say RATS!!!!!

The tale of three SAMS.

Actually, there is one Sam with three birthday parties.   Sam  first celebrated early with Maggie and Rowan who share a birthday with him.  We partied with old friends who feel more like family while in Colorado.   Then on the actual birthday we had a dinner and cake celebration with Gma and Gpa Dody.    He still kept asking when his "real" party was going to be so we threw together a partay at Mt. Tabor Park on the only dry day of the week.   Obviously his mommy couldn't pull together a real birthday cake and threw some old plastic sad toys on a chocolate cake for his birthday.  Luckily Mama Share made some delish cupcakes for the kid party.  His friends Manu and Aiden came to Mt. Tabor and then three stranger (gasp) boys joined in for cupcakes and stomp rockets.   The third party was over when Sam and Manu told another boy on the playground that they were going to give him THREE wedgies if he didn't shut up.   Here is a pic from each party...................
