My boy called me "sweetness". LOL!!!
He was handing me a bowl of oatmeal and he said "Here you go sweetness." I said, "Did you just call me sweetness?" And he said, "Ya, Grandma Judy calles me that."

Love it!

conversation of the day

Avery: What should I do today?
Me: I don't know. Lets go turn on your library movie.
Avery: No. What should I do today?
Me: Well, what do you want to do today.
Avery: Grandpa can come and see me.
Me: I think Grandpa is still out of town.
Avery: Oh ya. Well, I want him to come over.
Me: Let me just have my cup of coffee then I will make you breakfast.
Avery: NO. You can go to church and Grandpa and I can just....hang out or something.

Oh, he makes me laugh.
The good news is is Grandpa is back from St. George and he will come and see him this afternoon for a bit. Yay!! Im still a slacker and didnt go to church though.

13 today...

My Emmy is 13 today...The big official "teenager". Im so proud of her. Shes really come out of her shell this past year and she getting SO big...Cant beleive Im a mother of a teenager.
Ive survived the sleepover birthday party with 8 screaming girls. (barely, and I still have 2 1/2 hrs to go until they all go home.) We had a campout in the backyard with the tent, they roasted marshmellows, ate pizza, and talked, laughed, and played alllllll night long...I had to turn on the christian music channel on my tv in my room just to drown out their giggles so I could sleep. They had fun though...I guess thats all that matters. RIGHT????

I cant believe she's a teenager. I love her more than words can say.

Pics as promised and starting school...

Avery started school last Wednesday. He was soooo ready to be back in and I was ready to have him back in. Just when I thought everything was well when Emmy went back on Monday, Avery got sick. Ya, he's already missed a day of school. Never fails. As soon as he goes back, it starts. He's been well all summer. As I said, Emily started yesterday at her new school and we are both really excited to have her there. Its a Christian private school and she will be getting all her needs met there. I met the teachers this morning and they are truly great women. Very, very nice. I start working more hours this week too. So far, not so good. I dont have anything on my schedule yet for the next 3 days. It will take some time I guess. At least I can kinda be on call. I wanted to share some pics of Emilys trip to South Carolina. She had a great time with T and K. Chillin at the pool, swimming in the big ocean, and catching little crabs along the beach. She had some real quality alone time with grandma and grandpa.

Weekend Recap

Me and Ave had a great weekend together. Just me and Ave.... Emmy was in South Carolina with grandma and grandpa. More on that later with pics to prove it!!! Anyway, Friday, we went to a good friend of mine, also a hair client's house for a BBQ. I felt a little "eXy" because I didnt know any one but my friend and Avery felt the same way. We took awhile to warm up. It wasnt long before the anxiety subsided though. They have HORSES...Oh my!!! Avery was in seventh heaven when he saw them. He spent the whole time out feeding the horses dead leaves from the ground. There were 4 horses and they all congregated over to him and they even let him kiss them on their noses. Sweet horses. My friend says that two of them are pretty wild, you cant ride them, so it was very unusual that they would allow Avery to touch them let alone kiss them. They knew my Ave was special. We had a great time and I met some very nice people. Saturday night when I got home from work, because Avery was home, bored all day with dad, that I would take him to dinner and a movie. We went and had nachos and enchiladas and we saw Ice Age. It was pretty cute considering its the 3rd I think....He liked it. After the movie, he insisted on going to see the horses. I gave in and told him we could drive by but we were'nt getting out. So we sat on the side of the road and gazed in Awwww. He wants to take grandpa to see them. Sunday was just a quiet day at home. He played Wii all day. He loved having it all to himself while sissy was gone. About 8pm it was time to go get her from the airport. And boy did he miss her. They laughed, giggled and rough-housed the whole way home and into the night...I finally had to make them settle down and go to bed. Ahhhh, back to the routine today.

SO we went camping last weekend. It was fun. It was cold. Racoons invaded our camp. Averys favorite part was the FIRE. He was facinated with it. He always wanted to throw in "sticks" (firewood).

The kids fished and caught several little ones and just threw them back. Avery called them "minnows". "Mom, I caught 2 minnows". Emmy and her cousins had fun exploring, playing paper dolls, playing wild horses and dancing around on the tables. (in the campground next to us).

We also went down by the stream and they loved throwing rocks in and dipping their feet. We all came home with a rock collection. Avery has named his. "Eggy". Hmm. Ok.

We had some good times. Good food. Good people.
