Tracy's Graduation

Believe it or not, I don't have many pictures of Tracy's graduation or reception.  The camera batteries died, and though I called Mike just before he was supposed to leave, there was no answer at home.  :)  I'm hoping to get a few pictures from others so I can at least have a few for her photo album.

Too Many Papers

I seem to have lost a check, thus our electric bill will be late.  I'm hoping for grace as it will probably be a big late fee since our bill is usually a lot anyway.  I have gone though just about everything in hopes of finding it...  I guess I will be calling them in the morning.

A New Baby

My friend had her 8th child yesterday.  She was a big baby at 9# 7 oz!  She has the cutest chubby cheeks and arms and legs and reminds me of my Melissa.  Her mom is doing as well as can be expected and is quite proud.  A friend and I were supposed to give this baby her middle name so we decided to bless her with a spiritual-meaning name and gave her the middle name of Christine. So...this big baby has a big name.  I won't post it due to the fact that I didn't ask for permission, but she has three middle names!!!  Congratulations, D. and M. on the birth of your precious little one!  Thanks for letting me hold her.  :)

Jason and the Aussie-Dog

Jason enjoys being with the dog.  He spreads his blankets out for the dog to lie on, and he would rather stay home from places so the dog doesn't have to be alone.  I try to convince him that the dog is a "big boy" and will be fine, but...  :)  We are trying to convince Jason to let me layer his hair.

Girl Scout Cookie Time

We know too many girls in Girl Scouts and got "hit-up" by most of them.  :)  Here is Emily showing off a Thin Mint.

And the Hail Came Tumbling Down

I don't remember what these two were up to...

We had a hail storm April 2.  It was quite the amazing sight so early in the year.

Kids and Cameras

Without fail, it's always when our camera has new batteries that the kids get a hold of it and take several pictures thus the need for new batteries again.  Imagine that!!!  :)  Here is a sample...
