One Incredible Woman

What I thought was going to be a day spent with my mom after taking her to the doctors office for her cancer treatment turned out different! Because of the type of treatment she is given, it requires for her to lie down afterwards. I was hoping we could have coffee at Starbucks and do some shopping at the Mall. That's ok though. I told her we would do "our day" another time. This is her second treatment and my first time taking her, so I wasn't aware of the details. 2 down.... 4 to go.
Waiting to be called back.

A really nice gentleman offered to take our picture together.

Surprise Visit!!!

We had a surprise visit today from Carissa and Ella. Carissa is one of Lindsey's best friends from school. They have been friends since Kindergarten. It was so good to see her and her new baby. What a sweetheart and a cutie! We fell in love with her.

Carissa and Ella

Oh, I could just keep her!

I had my grandma fix today!

She took to the boys right away. Carissa says that Ella really likes men (her daddy is in Iraq, and she misses him). :)

What a doll!

Ella is 6 months old. Thank you Carissa for visiting! We missed you. And thank you for sharing Ella with us. You are doing such a good job raising your beautiful Ella....I hope Bryan comes home soon. Love ya...

Special Roses

My boys surprised me with an early Mother's Day gift last night. They were anxious to give it to me, especially since I will be in Vegas on Mothers day. These are the "hand dipped in gold" roses. Mike is starting a collection for me. They are beautiful.

A Day with Aunt Squeaker

On our way to Seattle to help Aunt Squeaker put things away and organize.

Hard at work putting things away.

Getting the computer all put together.

Pam and I were in charge of putting up pictures.

Helping Tyler with the books.

Aunt and grand nephew time.

Break time!

Pam being silly...

Jacob on the balcony.

Squeaker relaxing in the Sun Room.

"Bitter Lake" in the distance.

Cascades in the distance.

Could Pam and I get a job as professional picture hangers? Not by the looks of this! What happened!

We fixed it....

Mike and Larry putting together a shelf that will go in the "office".

The hallway.

Very nice place Squeaker, we hope you enjoy living there. Lots to do!

Our guilty pleasure when we were done. Ahhh...Krispy Kreme donuts!
