The first photo is Ty eating his birthday cake and his dad, Jeremy. The second is after finishing his cake and right before his bath! LOL

He received lots of presents including clothes that he needed. But he got lots of cool toys too! He did seem a little overwhelmed by it all. There were about 40 people there and Jeremy cooked on the grill for all of us. The food was great and the company wasn't bad either!
Now the next big celebration will be Steve's graduation open house coming up in June! And then that's the end of everything ~ for a while anyway!!!!

What I've been doing!

Hunter's first fish on his new pole!

Trenten and Ty had to be 'first' to try out the pool Brian gave us...BRRRR!

Drew waiting for the graduation ceremony to begin.

Steve (in green gown, center of photo) actually receiving his diploma!

Now I can rest until later this weekend when we celebrate Ty's "1st" birthday.

Sensational Saturday

What a great day! Doug's two youngest came to spend the weekend with him. Monday is Hunter's 5th birthday so we celebrated Saturday. As soon as breakfast was out of the way, the kids helped make the 'birthday cake'. Then we all went to the park to fly the kites that Doug got for them. Hunter's was a 'Sponge Bob' and Harley's was 'Dora the Explorer'. Dora was true to her name. Boo (aka Harley) let go and Dora was off exploring on her own over the treetops and far away. Bon Voyage, Dora!!
Then it was back home for lunch and singing 'Happy Birthday', eating cake and opening presents.

Both the little ones were given fishing poles by their dad as he had already set up a fishing expedition/picnic for today, Sunday. So far I'm the only one up. They must all be exhausted from sitting up last night watching the bon fire.

Guess maybe I should be out in the kitchen packing a picnic lunch. Nah.....I think I'll drink my coffee first!

EIGHT Things About Me.

I've Been Tagged and it has taken me a long time to get to it!

Here are the rules:

1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.

3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

So here is my eight:

1.) I have 14 living grand children and one that was still born. I've held everyone one of them - all 15!

2.) Garfield and I have something in common....we're not overweight, we're undertall!

3.) I've colored my hair since my 20's to hide the gray!

4.) If I'm really angry with somoene I live with, I clean the house like crazy! An outlet, I suspect!

5.) I was widowed at the age of 29 and have been remarried for 17 years.

6.) I am scared to drive in the winter time with all the snow and ice, so I usually stay home unless hubby is driving.

7.) My mother-in-law and I are NOT friends! In fact, we don't even really like each other.

8.) Now that my children are all grown, they have become some of my best friends!

Okay, I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you decide to do this, please let me know so I can read about you!

Test for Springs final arrival!

I can tell it is really spring here now. This large moth (2½" long x 3½" wide) helps to prove that spring and the bugs have arrived. I tried to find out exactly what kind this is, but couldn't find a picture to match it on the Internet and since I'm not really into the bug world, I haven't a clue. Any one want to venture a guess? His lower wings have a beautiful purple color on them and the dots on his upper wings are shaped like triangles. He has long yellow antenna and big black eyes.

The other way is by looking at this beautiful lilac bush in my backyard. It can be seen from my compter room window and if it's warm enough to open the window, the fragerance that filters though the screen is beautiful. I was hoping that the butterflies that were occupying several of the branches would show up, but I should have known better. Without zoom, I just can't capture things the way I want to! But I think the flowers turned out pretty anyway.

It is 11:46 PM on Wednesday night, and this is the first chance I have had to really spend enough time on the computer to post something new. I have been so very busy, with what I'm not certain, other than taking care of Drew off and on. Maybe just cleaning house, it is spring after all, and that spring cleaning is always calling my name. I wonder if I changed my name maybe I would get more rest......nah.....wouldn't happen!

A Wonderful Friend

I am the happy recipient of the displayed Birthday Card made exclusively by SmalltownRN who claims she has just taken up this hobby. Looks like she is an old pro at this kind of craft, doesn't it! Thank you dear friend for remembering me and taking the time to let me know we are friends, no matter how many miles may keep us apart!

Although we have not met 'face-to-face', we have chatted on the Internet until the wee hours of the morning at times! We met over a year ago through an exchange that PEA had initiated for Halloween in 2006. Thank you PEA for hooking us up!
