My kids started school last week. I always get teary eyed when they start again. I don't know if it's because I'll miss them, or if it's the hustle and bustle of everyday life again. Gone are the lazy days of summer. Miss B is growing up so fast. I can't believe she is in the 7th grade. She is such a beautiful young woman with a strong personality and lots of confidence. J.D. is in the 4th grade this year. Wow! Time flies! When we first moved out here he was just going into the 1st grade. Now, Mr. Mackay is in Kindergarten. This is where my heart starts to break. I was always a little sad when Baylie & JD started school, but they both had only 1/2 day Kindergarten. Mackay has an entire day of K. I miss him dearly. He can be such a handful sometimes, and at the same time, he has the best personality. He definitely knows what he wants and knows how to go after it. He will do great in school. I think it's been doubly hard for me knowing that I'm getting closer to the end of my kids being at home with me all day! Just 3 more years and Grayci will be starting her adventures at school as well. I can definitely wait for that day to come. I love you kiddos and hope for all the best for you during this school year. You three are so very special to me and I know you will succeed and accomplish many wonderful things this year!

Sista K


For those of you who don't know...This really is my youngest sister...12 years younger. I don't get to see her too she's got her own little life to live...but as you can see, when I do get to see her...there's a lot to see. Yes...she has a mohawk...this is very tame compared to normal. Yes...she is tattooed from head to toe and everywhere in between...literally. And yes, she does have many piercings...a true freakshow in my own family. Just kidding...I love ya Kristina, no matter what!


Okay...this is what I had for lunch today. It just sounded like it would taste sooo good in my mouth and boy did it ever...

Peanut Butter, Banana and Doritos...we'll call it PB&D. I've been having some major food issues the past few days, where nothing sounds good to me...NO, I'M NOT PREGNANT! Last night, my oldest came into my room because she couldn't sleep. She said Jay and I both woke up and Jay asked her what was wrong. I then commented "I just need to eat Apple Dumplings". Okay...I'm dreaming about food now. Though, if you've ever had The Pioneer Woman's Apple Dumplings, you'll be dreaming about them too. Anyways, just thought I'd share my yummy lunch with you!

Memory Game

I saw this on Amie's blog and thought this was a fun idea. I'd love to hear the memories we share together!

The Memory Game

Heres what you do:

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.It's actually pretty cool (and funny) to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.
