HELLOOOOO Anybody Out There?

Whew! It's been a busy month, and it's still not over!

*Weddings, Rehearsal Dinners, Graduations, Parties, Baby Showers*


Some Random Thoughts:

*We had a great Memorial Day cookout with family and friends yesterday.

*We are so happy our Joshy got home safely on Sunday night.

*I loved it when I found out my nephew painted his refrigerator with chalkboard paint so his little nieces can write on it while they're here visiting in June!

*My hubby found an antique headboard and foot board for our queen bed! He spent the day putting it together! He ran into a few snags which made the job more tedious than he first expected.

*Our nephew arrived safely today from college in Indiana. He leaves us on Saturday to see his parents and brothers in Argentina.

*We ate left over burgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans and chips for supper.

*It rained and stormed again today, 18th day in a row. Our lakes and ponds are filling up, looking so much better than during the drought.
*I'm enjoying listening to my husband speak his beautiful Spanish on the phone with his sister who lives in Argentina.

*I can't believe my son had to leave town this morning for another job. He'll be living in an RV this week with my brother and Justin. They're about an hour and a half south of Tampa building the frame work of a new church.
*I'm so blessed to have been able to see so many friends and former students on Friday night at graduation.
*I was so thankful to hear that Shane, my cousin's son, is doing so much better.
*I'm happy my brother arrived home safely around midnight Monday night.
*I love you dear readers and those who COMMENT here on my blog.


A random photo I thought I'd share with you!

My son, Josh, gave my mom a haircut! This was before her back surgery, when she was in too much pain to visit the salon. I think he did a pretty decent job.

Josh is a man of many talents. Great hairdo.
You'll have to take a picture of the antique bed you got. How sweet of Hubby to put it together.
Glad you all had a great Memorial Day and I enjoyed reading all your thankful/blessed thoughts.

What a wonderful post, just full of tid bits and news of the family. As a Mother I know the great joy of hearing from or seeing your child come home. If you are a child please call your Mother, it means so much to her. I love you guys.

Nobody here but us nuts (Munchkin and me)chasing around my apartment attempting to catch a chipmunk that managed to sneak in.

Sounds like you have been a busy little beaver. Glad all are safe and happy. How is your mom doing since her surgery?

I am going to be away from Friday to Monday. I will be putting up a special posting on my blog Thursday evening. Please be sure to check it out.

It is just amazing how many thoughts go through ones mind. I do hope your mother is doing good with her surgery and she is in my prayers. We have had a lot of rain for New Mexico lately too. But unfortunatly not enough to take us out of the drought. It has not been good enough to go swiming because of the rain.
God Bless

Your son did a great job with the haircut! wow...

It is so exciting to see all the young people finishing school...my daughter is graduating this year as well.

Praying that your family are all on the mend.
