I guess that I really don't have much to post about family wise other than my mom is doing really good and has been super chatty the past couple of visits.  I have learned many things about her that I didn't know.  I feel so blessed to be able to visit with her sometimes late into the night.  I do miss her thought provoking visits around my kitchen table, the talks over folding clothes and some of my favorite conversations were as walked at the mall.  But I still enjoy listening to her voice as she talks about her youth.  I know that it sounds crazy, but I do miss my mom!

But I don't want to feel sorry for myself today so I thought I would just mention some of the blessings in my life......My husband, Haley, Jackson, Maddy,  Jake and Jessie.  My family.  The roof over my head, food to feed my family and clothes (to many for most) for one and all.  My friends...I have great friends!  My health and the health of my family.   Shane's job.  Living in a safe neighborhood.  My faith.  My Savior. Scout and Jenna.  Miracles.  Living in a free land and having a great life!

Another dance has come and gone.  We were able to pull this one off in just two weeks with very little stress for those who were involved.  I am not going to lie....Haley's dress was beautiful on her though the pictures don't quite do it justice.  She looked so grown up.  The old Hollywood glamour look worked for her.   She loved it.     She had a great time and of course they are already working on Sadie's (another girl ask boy) and Haley has decided that she really needs a job!

As for our house we were a house divided.  Half cheered or the Cardinals and the other half new the Cards would get beat.  I am sorry to report that half of us were right.  I know that some of you real Card fans will be dissapointed with this post, but we knew the inevitable was going to happen.  But it really was a good game and truly the Card's have nothing to be ashamed of, they played a good game.

I also have great news to announce....Scout is house broken!!!!   
Need I say more.
