My Parents House

We got a offer this week on my parents house, much FASTER then I thought would happen! We countered and she accepted so now we have a few weeks to see if the loan is approved. We are still showing it as we have been told that the buyer has A LOT of student loans so there is a chance it might not go through. We are going down this weekend to figure out we are ALL getting rid of. It is sad to go through all that my parents worked for a decide who wants it or if we are selling/donating it. You have a lot of GUILT of saying you do not want something that they loved but we both have a house of "our" stuff.

Tylers Bday Party

Wednesday was a 1/2 day so we FINALLY had Tylers Bday party (2 weeks late). It was a BEAUTIFUL day and we had 15 out of the 17 kids show up. A lot of soda, Pizza and snacks were eaten!! Maxie was in heaven as she got a lot of "dropped" food. I even had to wipe Ice Cream off her head as she knew where to be when kids were eating:)

Tyler is friends with a GREAT group of kids and it was FUN to spend the afternoon with them.

Coffee, Tea, Milk or TYLER

This is what happens when you take your 11 year old to $ams Club with you..Yes he is INSIDE the milk cooler.

Well, Hank was SURPRISED!!!
He left around 11 to go golfing with 3 friends and got home around 6 and we were ALL in the front yard and he honest to goodness had NO idea..he said when he came around the corner he saw people and thought what are they doing. He said it took him awhile to realize it was HIS party:)
It also was our friend Barbs birthday so she is in the last pic with Hank.
Next party is Tylers Birthday party (Yes it is a few weeks late) on Wednesday since it is a 1/2 day..16 kids..and me. FUN!!

Happy Birthday to my MUCH OLDER then me Husband

Tomorrow, or today (depending on when you read this) Hank will be 50!!! I had no idea I married someone who was SO much older then me but I did:-)
I have to say it is kinda funny as this bday is getting to him. I personally think it is pretty funny BUT I can laugh as I have 15 years to go (that my story and I am sticking to it) before I am 50.
Happy Birthday Hank..You are a GREAT husband and a Great dad. We love you!!!

2nd Day of HIGH SCHOOL

Friday Night I was having "DRINKS" at our house so Hank said he would pick Nicholas up from school as I still had a lot to do. At 330 Nicholas walks in the door and walks right up to me with the "LOOK" on his face and says "WHY did you have DAD pick me up...he got out of the car" (Insert me laughing NOW:)

Hank then walks in the door with the "look" of what did I do sooo wrong and says "I'm am sorry but I did not know I was not suppose to get out of the car". (Insert me laughing again:)
I said "YOU got out of the car" (I am now laughing and doing the HAPPY DANCE all the while looking MODIFIED)

Nicholas says "He was walking around and WAVED above his head when he saw me"
(OK now I am really laughing and am so damn HAPPY as I have just moved up to PARENT OF THE YEAR as I know you do not make eye contact with your kid till you are out of the HIGH SCHOOL Parking lot)
Hank still is standing there with the what did I do sooo wrong look on his face and Nicholas says "Please do not let dad ever pick me up again"
Ahhh it feels so good to wear theParent of the Year Crown again...and YES I am still laughing:)

Back to School

Today was the FIRST day of school here. I have to say I was not ready for them to go back even though I know Tyler was and I am pretty sure Nicholas was also. Ty is in 5th this year so we only have this year and next in Elementary school and Nicholas is in HIGH SCHOOL this year. He was JUST in Kindergarten so I have no idea what happen to grades 1-8th!!
I do not go back for another WEEK and I am THRILLED. It was nice to have the day to do wanted and when I wanted to do it:)

Spains BasketBall Team

I found this tonight and I have to say I was APPALLED. I know in the article it says it is all in fun BUT as a mom of 2 Asian sons I see NOTHING funny about it. My boys and husband have had things said about them and I find it INSULTING.

Tyler is the funnest kid ever..has a REALLY short fuse, has a answer for everything, could wear the same outfit for a week and not care and can not remember to brush his teeth. I would not change a thing about him:)
Happy Birthday Tyler..we love you.
