My Beautiful, Talented, Sweet Taylor

Is she not the cutest!
Last Night Myself, Taylor and her BFF Haylee all went to the Scrapbook store and worked on special Mother's Day projects (which are top secret right now) We had such a good time.
The girls kept half of the croppers laughing all night! It was so much fun to spend a Friday night with 2 teenage girls, What a great daughter I have! And, hey, what kind of girl is willing to spend a Friday night with her mom??? MINE !!! Lucky huh.
I love that my passion for scrapbooking is fast becomming hers! She is so talented, and she is so very proud of the project her and Haylee each did. (after mothers day) We will share!

♥ O U C H ♥ Happy Monday

Well after a busy week back to school, and a BEAUTIFUL 80' Day last weekend, we spent our Monday night at the Orthopedic Doctor. We thought we were there for Codys 6 week check up and the "OKAY" to continue Soccer. only to be X-ray'ed and CASTED!!! Oh my Heck! Were all a little disapointed, for those of you who don't know the story, 6 1/2 weeks ago Cody hurt his foot at soccer, (The day before the 1st JV Soccer Game) It was swollen, Bruised, and Cody could hardly walk. Ken took him to Urgent Death, where they X-ray'd it and sent him home - said it was just bruised and he was okay to play. So 5 days later, 2 Games later, Codys Sports Doc at the High School insisted that this was NOT a bruised foot and to go have it re-
X-ray'd. We did - and again its okay - take it easy for a few days and Go ahead and play in Tuesdays game - His Coach said NOWAY - Its broke Im positive -- The night of the game 13 days later -- Cody was walking with his team onto the field and Ken called and said DO NOT LET HIM PLAY - another radiologist read his films and he has a non-displaced fracture.
So he didnt play -- GOOD CALL COACH WEBB!!! The next day we took Cody to Gig Harbor Orthopedic Surgeons and they read the films and they were now 2 weeks old and they said keep off of it for a few weeks and we'll see you on the 14th (3weeks later) and today -- Its completely broke - So he is sporting a new look -- BLUE!
We are just hoping that he will be out by May 7th -- Thats his 16th Birthday and day of his drivers test♦ Good luck! HAPPY MONDAY

One Month and counting!



This is by far not the greatest photo of Cody. But it shows in one flash bulb what Cody's last few weeks have been all about!


And Why?
And What may you ask is he doing?


Well as of today Cody is "ONE MONTH" away from being 16 and driving!

This is his whole world lately.

He and his dad have been fixing up his new (to him) ride!


This picture was taken about 5 minutes ago, and as you can see, I couldn't even get him to give me a good pose. He was up on the grill yanking out a part (who knows)

He is not only learning about how it runs but how to keep it running. What a lesson Dad has taught him. And not once has he even made a peep about the list of stuff that needs done to it, he has just dug in and made it happen. They make a good team!


This is a little better view of his truck. Not bad for a first ride huh!

HAPPY ONE MONTH AWAY CODY

♥X♥X♥ Moms getting sad!

Slow Sunday ♥


Well its been a slow relaxing day to end our Spring Break Vacation. We did'nt do much, but sometimes its not where you go, it's who you spend your time with. And I got to spend some much needed time doing a whole lot of nothing!

I am looking forward to my next vacation!
June 20th & 21st is my 20year High School Reunion
Good Ol' Murray High School
I am flying into Salt Lake City the morning after we are off for summer, and might I add mother nature didn't let me down we have -0- Snow days to make up so we are out of school on the 18th and I fly out the 19th. I CANT WAIT!

I didn't attend my 10year. I had just had Kenny and didn't feel up for the journey, Not to mention that I was so upset that I had missed my baby brothers Wedding day. My brother and Sister (in-law) were married the same day I had Kenny. This is a great day to share with them, But Im still so saddened that I missed it, I just can't tell you how much I hurt that I missed one of the most important days in his life.

But This year will be different! My Best Friend Crystal and I are going to spend some much needed time catching up, having fun with our former classmates, and spending time with my little brother and his BEAUTIFUL family!!!

Crystal - We are going to have so much fun - Heres to the Class of '88 and the memories we have made and for many more to come!

Good Night!!

Its a quiet Spring Break


Well, its hard to believe that its already Thursday of our spring break. We have had a nice relaxing do nothing break. Im not sure if this is a good or bad thing, as the kids seem to get very restless these days.


Today, is another slow day. Ken's working, Taylor's at the movies with her friends, Cody's off to Ashlynn's (his girlfriend) and Kenny and I are having a Mother son day as he likes to call them. So we will watch a movie, pop some popcorn, and have a simple day, all the time knowing that Sunday is just around the corner and we will be back into the swing of things, Soccer for Cody, Baseball for Kenny (GO FOXES 1-1) Youth group and babysitting for Taylor, and Work for me. The days seem to go to fast.
before we all know it May 7th will be here and CODY WILL BE A LEGAL DRIVER- OMG save me now!!!
