Video of Cheerleading

Video of Cheerleading


Alex is trying a new sport, cheerleading. She is cheering for a flag football league. We were so proud of her this morning, she did all of the cheers and actually was loud! I'm trying to get a video downloaded so you can hear her!!!

Alex doing her "spirit" after a cheer.

Uncle Rustin came by to watch and support Alex.

Celebrating With Friends

We have a group of friends who get together for birthdays (OK, it a good excuse to have a girls night out!). 3 of us were celebrating in August, so we went to a fondue restaurant in Tulsa, The Melting Pot. It is a perfect place for us, it takes about 3 hours to eat, so lots of talking can take place!!

First Day of School 2008-09

May 14, 2008, school started!! Hayden & Alex are both in school all day! I managed to spend the entire day running errands and picking up the rest of their school supplies. It is hard for me to imagine I will have a couple of free days each week.
Hayden with his 2nd grade teacher Mrs. Trost...I think they will have a fun year. He is so excited and ready to go back tomorrow.

Alex with her kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Stephens. She was also Hayden's teacher, so we know her well and Alex is excited.

A Few Good Friends

So, here is a little history of this group. Over 5 years ago there were 7 moms who were looking for a "few good friends". We were all new moms who needed to find a play group for our children...and for ourselves! It is an understatement to say that we found a good group, because we found a great group and all keep in touch to this day. Out of our group, Jennifer moved to Florida (we went and saw her in April), Brett is in St. Louis, and the rest of us are still in the area. Brett was on her way home from her in-laws and stopped by for the night with her 3 boys. Cindy and Monica's families came over for dinner and we had a fun evening catching up. This was suppose to be the "good" pic of the kids! They have all gotten soooo big!
This is of course the "silly" pic that always has to be taken!
Brett's little one, Madden, bit Logan on the butt!!!!!!!!!
Cindy is showing Monica and Brett about blogs and telling them to get theirs done (Macey is looking on).

Our Friend Reta

We had a surprise visitor today from a very good friend. Reta came by before her Dr.'s appointment and spent some time with us! She has been through a lot over the past few months, but guess what....she is doing GREAT!!! We all love her and the kids think she is pretty special!!! We loved seeing you Reta, stop by again soon!

OK, our little friend Macey was at our house last week. She is a BIG animal/nature girl, so leave it to her to find a chrysalis and/or caccoon. Of course when they were looking at it, it "fell" out of the tree. We had to save it, so we took it inside to an aquarium. It looked closed up when we first put it in, but now the caterpillar goes in and out of it and takes the chrysalis all over the place. So, our mommy friends are wondering what kind it is and what it is doing. If you have any expertise in this subject, please leave your comments and the rest of us will learn! Alex really likes checking on it daily to find out "where" it is! I'll keep you updated.

New (Painted) Bathroom

We have been in our house for 6 years...Wow! In those 6 years, I have not done anything to our master bedroom or bath. So, Chuck went out of town last weekend and I decided I was going to paint our bathroom. I love blue and brown together, so that is the theme I went for. It is very simple, but sure looks better than the taupe walls. Next is a chocolate brown wall in the bedroom.....don't know if Chuck will leave again anytime soon, he doesn't like change! ha ha
