Tuesday was pear cake and cheesecake baking day. Yesterday was cookies. She works so hard at this, it is just so much fun to watch her being so serious about her baking. Today is library program day. Hopefully we can get out of baking again!

Dustin and Carlos are outnumbered in the family; two grandsons vs five granddaughters! When they are together, they usually spend their time in the floor of Dustin's room playing video games. They are visiting this week on Carlos' first week out of school and before Dustin goes back to college to take a business class this summer.

Samantha has been a busy girl today. She has made a batch of pear nut cakes and help me make a cheesecake. She is a very good cook and baker. Knows how to make the cakes by herself!
Making the batter.
Into the oven.
The best part - eating!

I absolutely hate dogs - always have, always will. All my kids love them and have them, in the house! This is a picture of Christy's. Big ole Bear and little aggravating Daisy. Would you believe that Bear barks and growls at everybody. I don't even go to Christy's because of the dogs. Went one day and she shut Bear in the bedroom away from me. He wanted out so she told me she would let him out and for me to wait in the kitchen. Said if he saw me he would bark and growl but not to worry, he didn't like strangers. So I'm in the kitchen and they head for the back door. He spies me, runs up to me and slaps a big ole paw on each shoulder then starts licking my face! I'm yelling, "Get him off of me!!!!!" He's about to lick the skin off my face, and Christy is laughing so hard she can't even get him to move. Can't you just picture this scene?

This afternoon I went to Lindsay's 7th grade honor day. She won a Top 10 GPA award. This year they had to give 11 awards since they had a tie! Lindsay won last year, too. Her goal is to win again next year when they actually announce where in the top ten you rank. Since there are hundreds in her class, the class took up the bleachers and we were confined to the balcony. I am a poor photographer anytime and especially from that distance but at least I got a couple of pictures!
Congratulations Lindsay. We are so proud of you!

Happy Anniversary to Cindy and Rodney who are celebrating their 20th wedding anniversary today. I came across this picture taken during their first year of marriage so thought this would be good day to share it. What you want to bet that I'm in big trouble for this!!
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY CINDY & RODNEY
We all love you and your girls.

Cindy gave me this framed print of the New York City skyline as it looked when I lived there. Hard to believe stupid hatred could be so evil as to destroy such beautiful buildings and so many people's lives.

Back in the day....
This was taken years ago when I worked on Kenny's clothing line.
Obviously he was used to having his picture taken. I had a broken arm and a big ugly cast. He said, "No big deal, come here." He posed us so no one would guess I was wearing a huge ugly cast!
Looking forward to Lauren's choir concert tonight. Below is a picture of her ready to go to last year's choir banquet.

I came across this picture today and it made me realize how quickly things can change. This was taken right before Christmas 2010, less than a year and a half ago. Steve could not do this today.

I have pictures of the grandchildren hanging under this plaque. And in grandma's eyes, they are angels!

It has been another great Mother's Day! Church service was good, Chad and family took me out for a nice lunch, Christy & Family gave me this pretty floral basket, and the outfit is from Cindy and Family. Thank you God for my wonderful children and grandchildren.

Carlos and Dustin in line for food.
Carlos, Mary, Duane Lee, Chad, Samantha
Not only is Duane a fellow church member, he is also Chad's and Mary's neighbor.
Getting Samantha's shoes back on after the bounce house.
Isabell's back. She's in the jeans and pink/white shirt.
It was a fun day with lots of good food, games, fellowship.

Oh my goodness! I just found this old newspaper clipping from 1949. I must have been a good girl because I got the doll buggy and probably the doll, too. You can also see part of my cousin Jeannie's letter to the left of mine.

This is from the 2007 February "Date With Daddy". Obviously Steffinee was quite taken with the limo while Isabell was more interested in the camera. Steffinee was 8 years old and Isabell was 5.

This picture isn't very good but it is old! This was my 1st grade class at Needmore School. Mrs. Anna Stansbury was the teacher. Fall of 1953 or Spring of 1954. So many are gone already! I vividly remember making the bright yellow ducks on the bulletin board (I can remember all kinds of worthless trivia but don't ask me to remember anything important!) Since we had ducks on the bulletin board, I assume it must have been Springtime.
