Okie dokie, and we're back

Well, the month of craziness has ended, we were officially gone for 16 days in July.

Not even home

yep, not at all.

I'm SOOOOO glad to be home now. I had a fantastic friend who we owe big time who looked out for our yard and garden and made sure we had something besides burned up plants to come home to. We owe her a really nice dinner or something. Probably with vegetables from our garden ;). I went to two family reunions, Lagoon, Arizona and Las Vegas all in the car. That's right folks, no plane tickets here, just a lot of hours in the car. So many in fact that the old portable DVD player died in the middle of the mess. Have no fear though a new one was purchased. That is why our children are still breathing :). I rediscovered that I really don't like hot weather and that I hate what a dirty, horrible town Las Vegas is. (Sorry to all you readers who love it, I just can't believe, and I say this at the risk of sounding horribly prudish, how much women are preyed upon in that town) But, all is well, we are home and school starts in three weeks, I need to do school shopping, get ready to have a busy month with Pampered Chef and just enjoy the remainder of my summer. I'll try to post pictures tomorrow but it's school registration and swimming lessons and the gym tomorrow as well as clean the mess my kids made of the house today while we all relaxed.

Oh, the most important news of the day is that Cakes is 5 years old!!!! Our sweet beautiful girl entered the world five years ago. We got her a littlest pet shop house and she is in heaven. Happy Birthday my sweet beautiful girl, I am so glad to have you for a daughter!

Back for a minute

Hello all, I'm home for a day or so and I just wanted to tell you all Tank got his first tooth during my family reunion, it makes nursing a whole new experience but he looks cute with one little chomper sticking up! That is all, I'll post again when I get a second.

Good morning, and in case I don't see ya. . . .

In the immortal words of Jim Carrey in Truman show, Good morning, and in case I don't see ya, good afternoon, good evening and good night!

The rest of this month is going to be hit and miss, have a fantastic July!

Where have I been?

Well. . . . . my cherry tree exploded. Well, not literally, but with cherries. So, I was picking them last week and begging people to come pick them and take them. And, between yesterday and today I made 120 jars of bing cherry jam. Plus I dried some and made cherry raisins. I'll bet you can't guess what our neighbor and work gifts will be this year?! It is nice to know that this is done for December, I may or may not make zucchini bread like I normally do but we'll see come December. Right now I'm done, everyone is getting a jar of jam and that is it. My whole house is sticky and it was so hot today. But it's done. Now I just need to get the house clean before Saturday for our annual Fourth of July party. We have people come and we provide the meat, buns and drinks. Everyone else brings a salad or dessert and fireworks if they want to and we light them off. It's a lot of fun and I'm looking forward to it! My birthday is on the sixth and this is kind of my unoffical birthday party every year. The kids can't wait and tell me "Mom, we light fireworks on your birthday every year right!" They have it mostly right I guess. Well, that is all, I'm going to go take a shower and go to bed. Good night!
