A couple of video"s

Here is a video of Emma breakin it down last night. I have one of Lakin, too, but I'm having trouble getting it to upload. Anyway, Lkain got one of her gifts last night and while playing with it, Emma decided that she wanted a part of the fun, too. She was doing this "bob and weave" thing, that was hilarious, but of course my battery was dead on my camera. By the time I got it plugged in and turned on, she had stopped doing it. She does it one time, after she gets back up off the floor, but then she doesn't really do it again. Why is it that you always miss the good stuff??

Memorial Day 2009

Memorial Day weekend..... my gosh, summer is already halfway over and it's just now getting warm!! It feels almost over, anyway. Just a month away is the 4th of July ( which, BTW, leave your calenders open for our annual party!) !! Then before we know it the kids will be going back to school........ geez! Hopefully, I'll at least get a good tan:) Anyway, mom had a cookout on Sunday..... that was pretty much the only thing we did. we aren't usually big memorial day people and.... we basically have no friends:( Sad, I know. I think I need a lake... a big one.... with a boat.... and a great big outdoor cooking area..... in my backyard. Then, I would be more of a memorial day person:) So, back to Sunday.... mom had a cookout at her house. The kids pretty much swam all day, we old people just sat around and talked, we ate, kids swam somemore, then we all packed up and came home ( except for Vern, who went to another cookout). Payne came over and spent the night, the kids played outside until after dark ( now THAT'S what summer feels like!) and Monday we just basically sat around and did nothing. and now for the start of another week. Lakin's done with school, but Gavin isn't out until Thursday, so I"m still having to get up early..... wait, I will anyway, Emma doesn't sleep in on summer break:( But, I won't have to get any grouchy little boys up ( except for Vern, of course) and on the bus. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and I'll see most of you on Saturday!! Aleyah, cheesin'
awwww...... she's so freakin cute!!!!

Dawson's 9th (!!!!!) Birthday Party

Dawson's birthday party was on Saturday. His actual birthday is on Tuesday...... he's almost 9!! Jami had a little get together at her house. Dawson got his cell phone from his grandma, which he LOVES and won't put down. He's texting sorry to his mom, just so he can text... then saying he's sorry cause he didn't mean to:) Funny boy. Anyway.. here are pictures from the party ( yes I know they are mostly of the babies:))
She's so funny:) IT's like she's saying ' awwwwwww.. guys!!!!"

Not really sure what she's doing here

my little lamb......

One of the song's Lakin sang at her program had something to do with what they hoped there always was. They also had to draw a picture of what they actually hoped there always was and Lakin said swimming pools. Sadly, this is as close as we have to a pool at our house for now:)

Wearing Lakin's rain boots

wearing her sister's shades... she's so cool!
