My new kitchen table

Yes, I'm showing off my new kitchen table. I know I just a new one a year ago but.....I hated it. So I finally got the guts up to take it back and picked one out that I love.

Boys will be boys

Well here are a few pictures of Aron, his friend Joey, and Marcus playing some football. The boys' play football together at the high school and they just got their practice stuff that day.

A friendly Reunion

Well here we are 18 years later. This is my friend Shanda. I have known her since the 2nd grade. We grew up together in Abilene,Tx. She had to come to Phoenix for a meeting for the week and so the boys and I went down and had dinner with her. It was a lot of fun to see her again and get caught up on life.

Rain Rain DO NOT go away

Finally after years it seems like we got rain yesterday. It was raining so hard. Ryan and Alyssa went and jumped on the trampoline for a while until it started to hail then they came in. The power went out for 4 hours. Needless to say we spent most of our time outside.

Jackie and Jordan

"Baby face you got the cutest little baby face."


Don't ask. He just came crawling into the living room like this. He was stuck!!!
We got him out although we thought we might have to cut him out of it.
Boys will be boys.

We had a wonderful time on the 4th. Dave's sister Sharon manages a hotel in town so we went there for a BBQ and swimming. There was no one else there but then again there was 14 people there. We later went to Sharon's house to watch the fireworks. You can see them really well from her house. It was a fun 4th with our new nephew Richard who is 18. He is Chucks son whom never had anything to do with him. Now that he's 18 he started a relationship with Bill and Betty. He has been at every family function. He's a great kid and it's been nice getting to know him.
Jim and Kiki have moved to Prescott Valley for good. Jim took a job in Phoenix. He will commute until the new baby is born in September. They are going to rent a house for 6 months to a year then buy a house in Anthem which is half way from Prescott Valley and Phoenix. Kiki has never seen fireworks so this year was especially great for her. I'm learning Spanish and she's learning English. I'm so excited that they are here. I can be a Tia (aunt) to Alene and Juan when he gets here.

Bad Jordan Bad!!!

The dog!!! OMG Jordan was worse then any of the 8 kids I had today. I swear I spent more time getting on to her then I did any of the kids.
First she's been jumping on the counter in the kitchen to see if there is any food. So I caught her red handed today with the rest of my grilled cheese sandwich. So I put her in the bathroom for time out. Then put her outside. All summer long she has left the flowers alone. Until today that is..... She dug up 3 of the 8 lilies that were out there. I scold her for it and let her in the house for awhile. Well I decided to let the day care kids run through the sprinklers because it was 101 today. So I get them all ready and think the "smart" thing to do would be leave them in the house and not out back because she may dig up the rest of the flowers. I'm not out there for more then 5 minutes and something tells me to check on her. She managed to chew up my cross stitching hoop and the edge of the side table!!!! So I put her in her kennel while we played outside. By this time she is total pissed at me. I let her out to pee and forget about her while I get the kids ready to leave. Well you guessed it she dug up the rest of the lilies. I am so ready to kill her and get rid of her. Unbelievable!!!! Jackie was never this bad. Jackie dug up a few things but she never acted like this. I feel like getting rid of her then I think of all the money I put into her and second guess it. She will grow out of this......I hope.
