a trip to OSO

So I was going thru my pictures and saw this picture of Kayla.... she found these massagers amongst the boxes of stuff in our room the other day and thought that they were great... she would even lay down for a massage. she is such a girl! it's great. she loves chapstick, nailpolish, and massages.anyway, that's besides the point.... Mom, Marco, and I made a trip to the lumber yard today... picking up more wood for another garden box (ps. i'm excited about our garden, I'll have to post pics later) anyway we drove down by portal farm and garden or feed and seed... i don't remember what it's called but mom said that she wanted to pick up some plants to put in her hanging basket... so we went to the lumber yard and then swung by there.... and we never get just what we're supposed to get, especially with the weather the way it is today (gorgeous by the way!!) and ended up getting herbs, plants for a hanging basket, an already made hanging basket, and these!! Little baby chick's!!

there are 7 of them.... 3 black rock (i think) and 4 aracona (no idea how to spell it) the black rocks names will be Lola, Maurice, and Flap-Jack. No rhyme or reason to their names.... just what i felt like.

Ode to Opa

My Opa passed away in April of this year... cancer is absolutely no fun. On Saturday we get the joy (sense the sarcasm) of taking apart his estate and dividing it among relatives. I went with my Dad to my Opa's place today to sticky-note stuff that had been mentioned in the will. I was down in the basement killing spiders (cause i know i have to go back down there on Saturday and i really don't like spiders and cobwebs all up in my face) and I saw this book on one of the bookshelves there.... it made me laugh so i had to take a pic and share with you all. It totally represents my Opa!

Mom's 50th!!

My Mom had her 50th birthday when she and my dad were on vacation in Hawaii. There was no way that we could let her bypass a party in honor of 50 wonderful years here on earth.... so we had one for her (a little late, but better late than never)!!She was TOTALLY surprised. She and my dad were going to go to Chad and Rachel's to babysit Lily while they went out to a movie... TJ and Steph were going to get Sushi, and Marco and I were going to meet them over there later to go to dinner.... but no. We all lied. (oops!)

She was a really good sport about everything.... even though she was in her babysitting clothes, and not in her see anyone else clothes.

new favorite song

ok... so i'm totally diggin' this song. "Bounce With Me" by Kreesha Turner
It was the song in a Nikon/ Ashton Kutcher commercial.
