I have really slacked with blogging. There have been lots of things I wanted to blog about but never found the time or energy. SO . . . I have decided to go waaay back . . .
Let's start off with a joke . . .
Why do the New Guinea Chickens cross the road?
To give Kristi whiplash.
These darn chickens cross the road ALL the time while I am on my way to work! But they do make me smile.
Okay, we are going back to January . . . when we had a hail storm . . . weird.
Whew . . . glad that is over.
I helped Rozanne's son, Zach, make a cover for the cookbook they are selling for Palmyra's Pace Program. I didn't even realize we were making it for a real cookbook, at first I thought he was just doing it as an assignment or I would have baked homemade cookies! The class decided what they wanted on the cover (cookies with chocolate drizzled over them), Zach thought to stack the cookies, I would have just piled them one on top of the other. He is one sharp cookie (pun intended). If you want one, I think they are still selling them for $9.
Cole played basketball and scored his first points this year, everyone was rooting for him. I got a little teary eyed. I didn't get any good shots though. :(
Matt lost his job January 28, 2010 after working for Wal-Mart almost 19 years. Wal-Mart eliminated 1400 positions that day and Matt had one of them. He was working as a Market Electronics Merchandiser over 14 stores.
I made a really ugly scrapbook from our Chicago trip we took last June. I'ts fininished. That is all I am saying about that.
Nothing like the sun shining through your windows to let you know how your housekeeping skillz are lacking.
Update: My dad thought this was my floor (I think he was horrifed I posted this pic). lol It is my glass coffee table and it doesn't take very many days for it to look like this. Remember, we live off a gravel road in the country. :)
In March, we took Cole and a friend to see the Harlem Globetrotters. We all really enjoyed it.
I have been messing around with actions a lot lately. Took pics of this cute little girl.
She is so cute and cuddly.
We had a very sick kid the first of April. Mono. The kissing disease. It kept him in the hospital for 6 days and out of school for 3 1/2 weeks.
There was a very sick kid hiding underneath this blanket so his mom wouldn't take a photo of him, however, he was laughing.
These pics were taken during the time when he felt a little better. Believe me, there were times when he felt absolutely miserable. And so did his mom and dad. So thankful he is all better.
T-Bone has been my favorite thing to photograph lately.
I had Matt take this photo of me when I came back to change my clothes. Don't know if you can tell, but I am sopping wet from the waist down. Yes, I think I should be a super hero. I mean, look at those guns.
That is him on the right. It makes me happy when he stops by but T-Bone is not too fond of him yet.
I think because he likes to mark his favorite spots. And T-Bone likes to mark his own favorite spots.
Cole turned 13 on April 23rd. It made me sad. But happy.
The President came to town on April 28, 2010.
My butt and camera made the news taking photos of the motorcade.
Matt was hired by County Market and started working again on May 3, 2010. He is working at the Hannibal store and will hopefully be managing his own store in 6 months or so.
That's all folks, thanks for making it to . . .
I know, a picture of my rear would have been more fitting.
But(t) . . . I thought I would spare you.
