We Love You!
They sat still long enough for me to snap a couple of pictures after church. They are all eager to get out of their church clothes. By the way, it was a total accident that their shirts matched. Jesse had spent the night at OMA's and I didn't even remember what shirt I packed. Breann was able to make it over for dinner. Phillip wanted oysters, so we ended up at Hooters. The kids love the burgers and salads there. It was a great day with family.

She made it through 12 years of school and finally graduated from high school last night at 8:30pm. It was crazy that the ceremony was so late, we didn't get out of the Erwin Center until 10:55, but it was special night. My only complaint is that because it was so late afterwards we were rushed taking pictures which is usually hard when there are two families anyway. I could go on and on, but this isn't the post for that. I wasn't able to get a picture of just Breann in her cap and gown or a family (all 6 of us) picture.

I haven't posted anything in over a month. I realized that I start a post, then I get side tracked and/or I want to add pictures that I haven't downloaded yet and/or I have to get off the computer to feed or do something for or with the kids. What it comes down to is I have too many posts started and I never go back and finish them so I can publish them. Before I know it, I have another half finished post that I don't want to post until I edit and post the post before it. Does that even make sense? It is almost summer and it is fixing to get busy around here. My goal is to post more regularly, but there will probably be some old posts popping up randomly here and there. Just giving ya the heads up.

That did not happen.
I started school in January and planned to tackle the job over Spring Break.
That did not happen.
Two months later, it is finished! It was the first time I have ever done a tiling project. There were definitely some challenges, but it is finished and I love how my vision has been brought to life. It's exactly as I had imagined. The idea came to me because of my Fiesta dishes. I love all the different colors. My all new black appliances also help tie it all together.
Eventually I want to pull up the tile and if the concrete is in good condition I'd like to stain it, if not I might retile it.
Also, these cabinets need some help. I'm not sure what to do with them, but I think they need some color. Any suggestions? Maybe I'll just add some handles or knobs. I just don't know yet.

It was a pretty casual lunch, notice the t-shirts and shorts, but Brenna had a big date with a new car at 2:00. Seriously, she fixed her hair and make-up and got all dressed up because she was getting a new car that afternoon. She's been driving around in her Durango for years.
Remember your first car? I sure do remember mine, but I'm going to save that for another post.

We decided to stick with Mexican food, so we met at La Margarita in RR. It was my first time there and it was yummy!
We missed Melissa. She ditched us to go to the rodeo. ;-).
Jenny joined us, though and oh boy!, it was great to have her. We had a great time talking and laughing and eating and drinking!
