Here are some photos of our day at the park on tantrums this time--a great time!

Because today is both Mother's Day and JD's Birthday I thought it was fitting to express my feelings for my family.

My aunt and uncle have an extremely inherent ability to help others by all means that they can. They took me in "under their wings" and into their home. They are great to my husband and children and love us unconditionally.

My cousins Corina, James, Cathryn and Jeran are so good to our children and love them like aunts and uncles.

We miss their banter, their wit, their kindness. We miss card nights and pizza and even that runt Jedi. :) But we mostly miss their presence and warm faces.

YUP... James and Ryn in a garbage can.

They really aren't in costume...

Lily with her Jeran.

Jeran with Jedi (I think he is consoling her after she lost yet another battle with Gravity...the CAT).

And because there is a photo available, I had to include the precious, beloved, family....


**P.S Corina hates that thing!! So naturally, the rest of us love it! **

Little Poser

The title really doesn't need more explanation. She thinks that she is pretty much a big deal.

A Baker's Dozen

Tonight Chelci and I decided to have Lilianni help us make chocolate chip cookies. She had a great time putting each ingredient in the bowl and stirring at the end. The dough tasted great ! Lily had added too much sugar-- quite blatantly actually; she put an extra 1/4 scoop in the mix. I guess we weren't quick enough.

Well, as it turns out, adding too much sugar makes the end product or baked cookies FLAT and the extra sugar with the butter left them crystallized. It was unfortunate and hilarious! The cookies were ruined...

**Look at that mischievous smile**

...but we had a great time, and on a positive note we didn't over indulge or stuff ourselves with cookies.
