Don't you just LOVE the new 100 calorie snacks??? They're perfect! That is unless after eating one snack, you say to yourself....."that was only 100 calories, I think I'll have another." Thich then turns into another and before you know it, you've eaten 600 calories.
One of my friends asked if I have any diet tips. Here's one.....don't snack like I do.
That is so sad.

But, of course there's cable to be considered.....he got the box....it wouldn't hook up right and we needed the cable guy to come out and do whatever they do.....
I said oh, no, not unless you clean up that room! He's got a great work ethic, but a messy room. I noticed his door was open today. Very unusual. As you can see Max and Molly were thrilled as there's no other place they would rather be than on his bed.
The cable company rescheduled. You see where this is going don't you?
He's going to have to clean it up again........ :)

And now......my sister turned 60 today! Yesterday, her daughter in law hosted a wonderful birthday luncheon/party at the retirement center where my mother lives. Here in pictures is the day.
She had the birthday, he got the car????
This is all of us.....and mama. We are standing in birth order and I'm number 3. I looked back at other pictures of us through the years. We are getting old.
The birthday girl with the hostess! Again, great job, Jo!
That cake was just as good as it looks!

You're all about raw power. You're tough, you're loud, and you don't take crap from anyone. Leave finesse to the other cars, the ones eating your dust.
O.K. the part about not taking crap from anyone......that is so wrong! I'm not sure how they got that, but I take plenty of crap from plenty of
I saw this quiz over at Leslie's blog.... http://leslieinvancan.blogspot.com/ and just couldn't resist!
Go on over to her site to take the quiz, because this tough, loud, no crap taking woman couldn't get the linking right. Surprised? Didn't think so.

He dearly loved traveling in our motor home. We had good times on trips.
He was so proud of the grandchildren.
This is one of our son's college graduation.
Papa with his brother during a family reunion. His brother is the only sibling left. He was so faithful to visit papa every day.
Nobody ever loved a good meal more than papa! His friends called him Mikey from the commercial some years ago where the older brothers gave the cereal to the younger brother and said "Give it to Mikey, he'll eat anything!" Of course, Papa wanted his french fries real crispy with no salt. He believed with all his heart that if the grease was hot enough, you could fry all the fat out of fried foods. No, he really believed that! He loved anything that crunched!
Papa's 80th birthday.
Another grandson's birthday.
As unusual as it may seem, I love my in laws as parents and as friends.
Papa wasn't able to attend Matt's "coating ceremony" but he was able to go to lunch afterward.
This was really 5/5/05. (My camera was wrong!) Another grandson was getting married and we took advantage of being dressed to get a family picture. This was about a year and a half before we knew he was sick.
One of our many trips to the mountains. They had a timeshare there and we took many happy trips with them. They were very generous about having us with them on trips......plus they loved for my husband to drive! :)
Another Christmas photo with children and grandchildren.
Christmas at our house when we first got little Mikey for papa......he became our dog, but papa had visiting rights. This is before I got rid of the "antique" player piano.

before I went to church,
I visited my mother where my heart too quite a lurch!
I picked the perfect present,
One I knew she would like,
But my younger sister,
Had the same idea as I!
O.K. I'm not the poet tonight! Anyhow, it was a movie and they opened and watched it last nite, so I'll be taking the one I got back to the store! This is my younger sister
Last nite, my husband sheepishly said, "I forgot to get you a card." I said never fear, dear, I have an extra! So we just marked out Mother and replaced it with Wife.....so I bought my own card. I bought my own present too, just works better that way!
My sweet husband with his mama. He picked up lunch after church and MIL was fixing FIL's plate.
Sweet husband and the wife/mother! Sounds kind of like swamp monster huh??? Is he cute or what???
Two of our sons and our daughter in law in our present dining room at FIL's. We eat all our meals on t.v. trays up in his room so we can be with him at mealtime. It works well! He slept through lunch, but it was nice to be with him.

The top picture is my MIL with Russell and his brother and sister....please note Russell's precious pose done while his mother was smiling for the camera! My MIL is a true southern belle. She obviously raised her middle son to be the best husband in the world, so I'm eternally grateful to her. I'm also proud to call her my friend.
This is my mother and her really cute little girl (me) at the St. Andrew's State Park. Note she was a real bathing beauty! Seriously, I really have the best mother in all the world! Plus she brought me up to be the best wife in the world.....that's a joke guys!
These two women's children truly rise up and call them blessed.
We love you two. We thank you for teaching us faith, consistency, stability, but most of all for just being "there" every day and being Godly mothers.
Happy Mother's day.

Another college school year is ended and Matt is home for the summer. That went fast!
