don’t tell ds this but he’s got a cell phone! I can’t wait to see the look on his face. Other than that he’s getting clothes and shoes (nike flip flops and Adidas) from us. The in-laws got him a camo mp3 player. My mom and step dad got him some camo crocs, clothes and a Dale Jr. beach towel. They are also getting him some fishing stuff and a new pole or two.

I started shopping at 10:20 am and finished at 7:00 pm. I so shopped till I dropped. I hope ya’ll are proud. 😉

Dd lost a tooth on the way home tonight. The tooth fairy brought her a cheerleader charm. She still hasn’t made up her mind about pee wee cheerleading… deadlines tomorrow @ 6:00.

Can you believe it? It’s 7:25 am and I am up and just about ready to walk out the door. But can you guess why? People here that really know me know I LOVE to shop and that’s why I am up this early. Ds is getting ready to turn 12 and I am going to the “big city” an hour away to shop the day away. 🙂

The kids are going to spend the day with mamaw and papaw at the river camping. They don’t like shopping and I am fine with that. I’ll let you know what I find.

It’s official, they are OUT of school for the summer!!! Tomorrow the pool’s open for Memorial Day, so we are going to play games and hang out. It will open again Sat. and be open till Labor Day. 🙂

The kids went camping with the in-laws Friday night. They spent most of the day with my mom and step dad today. So I have not done much of anything this weekend. I did catch up on my DVR and laundry, oh and sleep lol. 😉

Dd is trying to decide if she wants to do Pee Wee Cheerleading. Sign ups are this coming Friday. She can either do cheerleading or gymnastics. Yes we are mean and only let them do one thing at a time. Didn’t you read my letter. 😉

I know I seem really happy that school is a day away from being over B U T it also makes me sad. Sad because it’s hitting me like a ton of bricks that next school year I will be the mother of a Jr. high schooler. What happened? It seems I blinked. Where did my sweet little boy go? And where did the smart mouthed tween come from? I don’t remember putting that order in. How can he be turning 12 in 29 days? This last year has gone by so fast. I truly feel I missed lots of it. I just have to try to remember these feelings when the mouth comes to visit… the “your ruining my life”, “I never get to do anything”, or how could I forget “you must hate me”. He has grown a lot but there’s still so much fun left. 😉

Dear Son,

I know you think I was born yesterday. This morning when I got up to wake you, you tell me it’s Memorial Day and so there is no school today. Ok son whatever you think, now get your butt up and get ready for school. Yes I know there are only 3 more days left and you really aren’t doing anything BUT when you have missed too many days being sick and a few pretending to be sick you must go till they stop counting days against you. Sorry, sucks to be you!!!


Mom 🙂

starts Friday!! The kids last day will be Thursday. 😀 This week will be rough b/c we have all been sleeping in this weekend.

Yesterday we spent the morning cleaning the yard and mowing. I got to run the John Deere and I did so in a tank top and short shorts… yep I’m over done. Didn’t sleep so well last night.

I love the warmer weather. Dh loves to grill and cook fish outside. Last night we had steak, fried shrimp, crawfish, cheese fries and baked potatoes. Tonight we are having fish (crappy), fries and hush puppies! Well I need to run. Later!

Carrie Underwood and Josh Turner put on a wonderful show. We had awesome seats too, right next to the stage on the 5th row.

Now I just have to wait for Brad Paisley to come b/c I am dying to see him. There are many more that I want to see but he’s at the top.

The kids have 6 more days of school… YEA!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have 3 more days of babysitting.

The pools going to be open the 26th. That’s way to soon for me to swim but the kids would swim in Dec. so they are looking forward to it.

The zoo has improved 99% since the last trip. The kids got to ride a carousal and a camel. Dd picked out a tiger in the gift shop as a reminder of today. Those are her favorites. 😀 The group we stayed with was such a fun group. We got to see a Rhino pee and a Camel poop. I had the BEST corn dog in years… ok I had 2 and a funnel cake. 

Now we only have 11 more days left in the school year!!!!!!

Sorry I went MIA.

Ds and I had a blast riding all the roller coasters. The newest one goes 150 feet up and twist round and round. It was a perfect day and the rain stayed away till we were walking out the gates.

Fil came home that same day. He’s very sore and swears he’s dying. He thought he would be 100% when he left the hospital. The dr. told him it would be a few months before he felt better.

The end of the year stuff is going on. Wed. dd goes on her field trip to the zoo. She is excited b/c she was a toddler last time we went. Now if the rain will wait this trip out all will be great!

Both the kids have had musical and they both did great. The older ones did High School Musical songs and dances which was fun to watch.

They have 13 more days of school left!!! 😀 We are all super excited about that.

The baby girl I watch turned one last Wed., she’s getting so big.

This coming Sunday I am going to see Carrie Underwood!! 😀 Well I need to go and fold clothes. Later!
