What's up!!: April 2007

What's up!!

Thursday, April 26, 2007

The entire month of April

It has been awhile since I have had time to sit and actually type anything. So I thought I would do one post that includes whats been keeping me busy the last couple of weeks.

First, I have not been on the computer all that much because our service is really slow all of a sudden. It's sad when dial up is faster than our wireless. The second reason I have not been blogging is because I have been busy keeping my Sim family alive. I've gotten so addicted to it, I love living my life (only way better)through a computer game.

Easter was a great time. The whole family came to my house for dinner and for the Easter egg hunt. To bad there was still snow on the ground and freezeing outside, so we had our egg hunt inside this year. The easter bunny brought Court a Princess Pontiac Solstice. She was very excited, but her older sister still thinks it's both of theirs. By the way this will be the one and only car I buy for my girls. Cute Story: We were heading to my brother's house and both girls were in the car when my dad pulls up and asks, "where her driver's liscence is"? She quickly responds, "Grandpa I don't need a liscence yet because it's not a real car". We take off down the road and Kay asks me, "Mom will I go to jail if I don't have a driver's license and a cop sees me on the road". She already wants a fake ID just in case.

The weather has been beautiful, so we have been working in the yard a lot. My hubby decides we need to roll the lawn since it has never been done in the 2 years we have lived here. Of course we don't have one so he calls my uncle (who happens to own an asphalt company) to see if we could borrow a roller. Long story short my Hubs went and picked it up and it was a massive piece of equipment that they literally use when laying asphalt. Needless to say our lawn is very flat.

The same weekend Kay gets determinded to learn how to ride her bike without training wheels. She is doing a really good job, but is afraid to turn so she stops then turns around and starts again. She has many bruises to show how good she is doing. Ha Ha

We also added some new family members to our household. Kay has been bugging for the last year to get fish. We finally gave in and let her pick out some fish. Needless to say of the 5 fish we bought we only have 1 left. Thank goodness the ones that died only cost 23 cents. Also this week my MIL calls and I could tell she was crying and shw informed me that her dog that they have had for 12 years died. But she couldn't move the dog by herself so he was covered up with a tarp until her hubs got home.

The final thing that has been keeping my busy is searching for things to do while I'm in Jamicia. Were are heading there in November because my cousin is getting married and we are making it our 10th anniversary trip at 8 years. I'm so looking forward to going. Now I just have to get this weight off so I don't look like a beached whale while I'm sunbathing.

I remembered one more thing. My hubby that it would be a good idea to have a golf cart. So we went and bought one last weekend. It is kind of funn cruising around the block in.

Well thats all I really have to bore you with at this moment, so maybe I can come up with something more exciting in the next post.

Pictures to back all of this up is in a slide show in the next post.

Happy Easter!

I just wanted to give a quick shut out to everyone to have a Happy Easter. You better hope the bunny arrives at your house before he hits Michigan or he will freeze and maybe not make it to your house.

Here is a picture on my front yard Saturday morning. Yes it was still snowing when I took the pic.

You've got to love this global warming trend we are in.

Have a Happy Easter and don't eat to much of the kids candy.

Prayer list

Ok I know I have been asking this a lot lately but man there is a lot of crap going on.

Pray for a family from Peck who just today lost their baby boy to the same disease my nephew had. My SIL is going to try going to the funeral, it has not even been a week so I'm sure that will be very hard for her.

A good friend is struggling with spending time with her grandpa while fighting cancer. Please pray for her and help her make the right choices.

My mom's other secretary, Jill, Her mom also has brain cancer and it not doing very well so if you could add her to your prayers that would be great.

I think that's all I can think of at the moment and I need to go work on laundry because the in laws are coming over for Easter this weekend.

I leave you with pictures from egg decorating last night.

The girls and I

Daddy and Court Kay wrote her name! Court was very excited about decorating eggs.

My 2 beautiful girls!
