The river Bed..

Yesterday A friend took the Robbie and Garrett to a car show and Shelly was at work so that left me with Ben, Madie and Mylissa.. I thought I would be a good mommy and take them out to eat when I told them where we were going they said I would rather go to MCDOLALDS so I gave in got it to go and drove down to the river to eat our lunch..
It was really to windy to eat out side so we ate in the car..( yes Dale we ate in the car)After lunch we walked down to the river to toss rocks in to it and just enjoy the nature around us.
I tottaly wore the wrong shoes... (Yes I am in desprate need of a new polish on my toes..)Mylissa found this Awsome heart shaped rock..
We then headed back to the car to go home..
When the rest of the kids heard we went to the riverbeds with out them they were a little jealous. We will have to by some kites and go again soon.

It's raining

So what dose this mean? It means a good girl flick and a cup of hot coco.. What girl flick do yo think I am watching? Well let me tell you...

I could watch this movie a thousand times and never get sick of it.. Noah and Ally make me fall in love with them over and over again. I think I love them so much because this is what I picture Dale doing for me if I ever lost my mind. I fell blessed that I have found my Noah in Dale he is truly my best friend and the one and only Love of my life.. I think that is why I am haveing such a hard time while he is gone my other half is missing. I can't wait until he is with me again then I will feel whole.

Grilling and Chilling

Our neighbors and I decided to BBQ today so we put on my aprons and started up the grill.

Mike was our grill master for the evening sporting one of my Cleo dot apron, Robbie was close by for morel support.

The kids all went on a short walk around the block while the food was cooking.

When they got back they where thirsty so they put their names on their cups so there would be no mix ups.
After dinner we all chilled out

and played a little

Garrett had fun going down the rocky hill on Ben's tractor

And Ben had fun on Garrett's skate board.

Then it was time to head on in for the evening.

Dude I mean mom I am not ready yet can we have to 10 more minutes..

And that concludes our day..

A time to rember..

I found this writing in Mylissas room yesterday. I was very touched by her words, and thought it would be fitting to share this memorial day weekend.

I love and miss you baby boy ..

I hope you all have a nice memorial day weekend..

William's Baby Blanket

The deep warming memories of that tiny blanket lay silently in my head. I can't keep those winter memories that I had with the blanket out of my head.

I have the memory of holding my baby brother in my arms with the silky.soft,baby blue blanket.

It was Williams blanket, my youngest brother,he would be turning four this year but he has passed away. I rember in every picture my mother took that same blanket was attached to William. Those sweet memories with him were so precious. This blanket makes William closer and clearer, so that is why the blanket is so special to me.

Today the blanket is still the same; my second youngest brother keeps it safe with him. Ben sleeps with the blanket sometimes, and the other times it is in the linen closet hanging around the house. Every chance I get, I take the blanket and hold it in my arms and partake of those same precious memories that I have had before with the same child who once laid upon that blanket. If the blanket isn't in those previous places, then it is most likely in the wash. I dont think I would be able to fit in to the washer to hold the blanket.

I hope in the future that I can keep the blanket. If I am able to keep it, I would make sure my children would have it as babies. When they grow older, I want them to know the importance of the blanket. Maybe when I die I can be buried with the blanket, knowing the importance it was to me. All I know is that it's going to last forever. No matter where it is, it will still be in my memories.

schools out for the summer!!

Today is the last day of school!!! I think I am just as excited as the kids... Tonight we are going to celebrate and have fun and stay up as long as we want and eat junk and watch movies..
I love summer vacations it is always fun at our our house we never really go anywhere we just have a lot of fun being together. I always hate when summer comes to an end and they have to go back to school.Here is a pic of mylissa she graduated from middle school and will be in high school next year.. It's going to be crazy when the kids go back because all of my kids will be in school. Benny Boy will be in kindergarten and Shelly will be a senior.

So are your kids out of school if not when do they get out?

Moonlight kisses

I love this purse... The fabric I used is from Heidi Grace Midnight kisses line and the pattern is one I made up..

I lined it with fun polka dot fabric and added a cute pocket and used a magnet snap to fasten it.I think the rounded shape of the handles and the fun button accents..

It was fun and easy to make, I like easy. I also like the size of the bag it's not to small and not to large.. Plus it's my favorite color combo.
So what do you think of moonlight kisses?
