I'm hyperventilating, my stomach is in knots
and I think I may throw up. Seriously, I am a
nervous wreck! How am I going to make it through
I suppose with a paper bag
I just can't
it's 3 hours
and 30 min. away.....
And another thing?
I wish my Mom was here to see him graduate.

We would be kinda like the Beverly Hillbillies if we all lived under the same roof...except for there's no Granny or Uncle. But Jethro and Elly May were cousins, so that's where the reference comes into play...follow me people.
Anyway, she took Moo with her on a little road trip with her adorable kiddo's to her Grandma's house. This is what I got for letting Moo go with her...well, this and a little peace and quiet, not that Moo is loud or anything but she does talk non-stop and I'm not even kidding. I know I'll miss it - someday.
3 adorable kids
Thanks Marchelle for making my day! I heart you.

Handmade stuffed with cotton puffy colorful hearts made with thought, crayons, staples and love.
Words written by a 9 yr. old in pencil, thought out on her own.
Words that say "I love you very (not just one very but two) very much", "You're the best mom ever". There's really nothing sweeter.
And then there's this,
Her handwritten little nickname signature. Seriously, who could ask for more.
I cherish and save each and every one of my handmade gifts from my kids.
My son is 18 now and I miss these small but wonderful gifts of love. Which, makes me appreciate even more, the gifts my daughter brings to me.
Time passes so quickly and soon I won't have them from her either.
My eyes are blurry with tears, I can't see so I'll leave you with this.
Me and my kids....
I hope you all had a FABULOUS Mothers Day!!!

How nice is this??? One of my female co-workers surprised us on Admn. Assistant Day with this. Its a box of hot tea-tons of flavors and a cute jewel colored travel mug, we each got a different color! Green is my favorite!
So very sweet and thoughtful and perfect!
What's your favorite flavor??
The month of May is becoming a stressful month for me and this little concoction is proving to be good medicine. Without going into to much detail, (cuz I don't want to bore you) the biggest deal that's happening is my little boy is graduating high school. Sniff, sniff, snot (I hate snot), waaa haaaaa, sniff.....sorry, I need a tissue....
And do you know that I had a friend who I've never met in person, offer to drive several hours to help me with open house?? I love her.

Maeci: "Over here."
Me: "Did you kill it?"
Maeci: "Mom, it has a life too."

Ok, moving along, no time for tears, this was a happy moment!
The boys got all dressed up and headed out to pick up the girls. We met them at the park for picture takin' time.
Here we are at the park taking tons of pictures! Here's a few....
The were so many gorgeous dresses that it made me want to be a Senior again...just for a minute.
