A Quick "survey"

10 random facts about me
1. I tend to be a procrastinator
2. That is why it took me so long to do this despite being tagged weeks ago by both Jul and Tiffany
3. I very rarely if ever step on a crack on a sidewalk or in a parking lot
4. This results in my walking funny sometimes.
5. I have never eaten at Taco Bell
6. I never wear flip-flops (don't like the thingy between my toes)
7. My whole house can look like Hoarders but I have to have the counters by the sink cleaned off
8. I don't know how to text
9. I have never broken a bone
10. Which if you know me is quite remarkable

1. shower
2 .brush my teeth (yes more than once)
3. check email and facebook
4. read

Spring Concert

 Tucker had his first concert this week and had to wear a tie for the first time! I may be slightly biased but I think he looks very handsome!  lol

They do concerts differently than they did "back in my my day"; the kids all do solos, duets, or in Tucker's case, a trio with his buddy Robbie and Byrce.  In 5th grade, they will all play together as a "band".  They all did such a great job and we are so proud of our trumpet player!

My Precious Baby Boy...

I can't believe that this precious little baby has grown into a 10 year old boy who is more precious to me than I could have ever imagined. He is my goofy, crazy MonkeyBoy and I can't imagine loving him more if I wanted to!

Tucker's birthday party

The calm before the storm...

We celebrated Tucker's 10th birthday with an all-boy sleepover! His friends Andrew, Aaron, and Mason came and seemed to have a lot of fun! they started with a balloon stomp and then played the above games for tickets which they cashed in for prizes. then it was on to the cake and presents followed by an all-out )outdoor) Nerf gun fight!
