Today is my mom's birthday. We met my whole family and went out to lunch. It was a nice time. I found out I'm going to be an aunt again. My brother and his wife are expecting a baby in January! We are now home for nap time, then headed out to a party for a friend who just graduated from police academy. There will be lots of little kids around. So I'm sure everyone will haved a grand time!!

5th of July

We had a very nice 4th of July. We went to a friend's house for swimming, eating, and fireworks. There was rain in the forecast, but luckily it didn't start until fireworks were almost over! So we got to be outside all night. The boys had a great time running around on the deck, throwing rocks, and being the center of attention. I often feel like we are our own parade when we go places!

I'm really tired this morning, but I have to do laundry. Then we're off to the library and lunch out somewhere. Once a week, we eat lunch out and the kids live it!! Have a great Thursday!

I have been collecting stuff for years. I am proud to say my years of collections are coming to an end! It started with a candle collection when I was in grade school. (My grandma was more into this than I was) Over the years I've also collected sunflowers, apples, boyds bears, longaberger, Noah's ark items (my 1st son is Noah), nurse things, & labrador dog things! We had a garage sale last weekend and I got rid of lots of things! Sadly this is usually where my collections end up! I have also been selling on ebay, but this takes a lot of time!

My goal is to be collection free! If I had all the money I've invested in all these years, I would propably cry!! It's time to get the kids some lunch! Have a great Sunday.
