The Duke

Meet Duke the guinea pig. Devyn got him for her birthday and he is really cute! I didn't know that guinea pigs were so sweet and they sleep at night which is a real plus!

Michael Jackson's 4th Child?

This must be Paris Michael, II, affectionately known as "Pillow".

Oh wait, it's Devy! My mistake.

Someone had a Birthday!

I had a birthday this week! The big 39. The kids made this delicious birthday cake for me and the whole family (minus one VIP Amanda) went to Olive Garden to celebrate. After all of the scrumptious Italian food and the cake, I started my year long quest to become Fit by 40. Follow along on my new blog and you can see what I'm doing, make your own comments and track my progress and the progress of others who are following. It will be a great adventure. I hope you'll take it with me! When I turn 40, I'm having a big pool party to celebrate and you are all invited!

Will the Real Christopher Columbus Please Stand Up!

The blogging is all about Caleb these days. I will try to add more about my other kids as soon as they do something cute! (Just kidding, no nasty posts please!) Anyway, Caleb's class put on a Penny Arcade and Caleb played the role of Christopher Columbus. I must say he was a dead ringer for the guy. All the kids stood silent behind their desks until someone came up and dropped a penny in their cup. Then they came alive and told about themselves. Here is the video of his performance although you can't hear a word he says because every other class member is doing their presentation as well! I was able to meet Ty Cobb, Mia Hamm, Princess Diana, Pocahontas, Cleopatra, the lady who first created the chocolate chip cookie and Neal Armstrong. They were all so cute.

"Hello, I'm Christopher Columbus. I descovered America on October 12, 1492.

I was born in Geno 1451. I worked with my father in a weaveing shop.

I started sailing at age 14. When I convenced the king and queen to give me ships. They gave me the Nina, Pinta and Santa Mariahe. I sailed due west to look for a sorter route to Aisa. After weeks at sea I saw land, and like I already told you that land was America. That is what I am famus for, descovering Amerka. I thout it was Aisa.

I first celebrated my descovery 300 years after my descovery.

I died at age 51 because or a heart attack. I died knowing I did something great for the world."

To Do My Duty to God and My Country

Caleb, as a Cub Scout, participated in the Memorial Day ceremonial retiring of the colors at the cemetary where his great-grandfather is buried. It was a proud parent moment!
If you watch the video, you may notice the flag is not being folded correctly. This is at the request of the cemetary for storage purposes.

At Great-Grandad Hurschel's grave. Great-Grandmother Dorothy's too!

The WORLD'S best Pizza is now in Broken Arrow! We had lots of family fun there this evening.

The kids had fun watching the pizza construction through the glass window. The employees made it very amusing. If the kids pointed up, they would toss the dough up in the air. The threw flour all over the window and drew pictures in it. One guy even made a smiley face out of the dough and stuck it to the window.
The food was totally awesome, as usual too. If anyone wants to invite us to go to Hideaway with them, we would definitely go!

Thursday Thought

The only good picture angle for those of us with double chins is from the top down. Observe:

Lisa and Uncle Mike heads up and back . . . Double Chin there. (I'm counting Uncle Mike's as a double chin although it is a poor excuse for one.)

Lisa and Uncle Mike, heads down, neck muscles tight. Chins still there. Well Uncle Mike's are pretty much gone. His are a lot smaller than mine!

Camera above the head pointing down. CHINS GONE! Uncle Mike had left town before I figured this out. Too bad, we could have made the cover of a magazine looking like this. I'm going to request this angle for all of my pictures now.

Thursday Thought

Green is good but sometimes it is OK to throw it away . . .

Do not make sports bras out of your fella's underwear. I don't care how crafty and creative you are. This will never place you in a positive and inspiring light.

Hey look! I did something crafty . . .

OK I totally ripped the idea off from my friend Sally. I went to her house today and her pretty spring wreath was there to greet me. After I left I decided I needed to make one right away before the "fever" left me. It may be a copy cat but I'm pretty proud!

Today was the annual health fair at school. Yippee, I stood in line for 45 minutes so the kids could get face paint and balloons. If I had a good book, I would have been thrilled but I was stuck holding everything and watching the walls. No, the health fair was not good for my health, but the kids have fun and that is!
