Prom 2009

This is how we see Staci ALLOT of the time during the week, but I was in Awe of my beautiful daughter tonight as she went from this...OH YEAH by the way to this,

no it's not a black glove it's a splint from our 2 1/2 hour stay at the ER last night..

See first picture, you're supposed to catch the ball with the hand that has a glove on it, opps!

But even with the splint look at how

BEAUTIFUL my girl is...

I've said it before and I'll say it over and over she is beautiful inside and out I am so proud of her!!

They did it again!

Yesterday was a big day, somebody and a B-day, oh yeah it was me. The day started great woke up at Mom and Dad's had coffee with Mom.Then the kids woke up and Aunt Marcie had called and they planned "an adventure"? Grandma, Grandpa, and I were not invited, that was OK they have great memories of times with Aunt Marcie. The kids left on the "Adventure" Mom and I continued to finish cleaning her cupboards that she and the kids had started the day before. Then the phone call came...."OK Grandma have Mom sit in the chair and close her eyes".... Staci and Steven had gone on a "photo shoot" with Aunt Marcie and Alicia to Rosy Mound Park. There in front of me was my birthday consisted of driftwood, beach grass, beach sand, ferns, something else in the bottom of the vase(right Steven) and BEAUTIFUL pictures of Staci and Steven at the beach!!!!
It is Gorgeous. Here are shots of each side of the bouquet...

Steven wrote I LOVE YOU MOM in the sand...
Staci drew a heart and LEFT HER FOOTPRINTS IN THE HEART...
This is where it happened again they made mom cry, I have the most wonderful kids who I love with all my heart and the best gift is when they share whats in each of their hearts so freely.

Just when I think they can't top what they've done they do it again...
Look at my beautiful gifts from God...

By the way it was NO WAY warm on the day they made this for me but they braved the elements anyway and did it having fun that was part of the gift listening to them tell about it out there. They gave themselves a gift of a great memory to talk about for years to come..remember when we made that bouquet for Mom with Aunt Marcie and Alicia...remember how cold it was...remember Steven's hike up the hill...remember Staci sitting in the prickers to take a picture...REMEMBER HOW WE TOUCHED MOM'S HEART AGAIN!!

Spring is Here! That Means Ball Season!!

It's finally here the day Steven has been waiting for all winter,OK maybe for a few years really, he is playing High School baseball!!
This is a shot of my handsome proud son in his JV Baseball uniform.

This is a picture of one of Steven's greatest supporters, Mrs. Morgan.
"Georgie" is just about as proud as we parents to watch the kids play sports, she loves to watch them play in the lot where they all have learned to play ball. Mrs. Morgan also loves to tell the kids how her boys learned to play ball in the same lot and for the same school.

Steven is even giving pitching more of a shot this year than he has in the past, he is starting at second base which he has played for years. Be sure you give them a look on first before you throw the pitch. ...and of course you have to celebrate with friends after the game, especially friends that will spoil you with cup cakes. I am so very happy for you Steven here's to a great season.
