This past Thurday night, after soccer practice got rained out, we headed to school for Brendan to drop off his school supplies and meet his teacher, Mrs. Wells one more time before the start of school.
I can't believe that Brendan is already starting school. Yes, he is my oldest and my first to go to school so it will be strange not having him around....but the house will be much more peaceful...and I think there will be alot less fighting.
Good luck to the teacher and students as they begin a new school year. God bless you all!!!!

I planned two party within 3 days; Mike's surprise party and Connor's 1st birthday party, so that it didn't seem strange that I was cleaning the house, trying to get extra things done around the house, and buying party supplies.
I do need to thank my dad for getting Mike away from the home on Saturday afternoon. He first had an idea to go golfing, but up ended up have Mike help out building a landscaping wall at my brother Brian's house. So after a long afternoon of working, Mike came home to a house full of people. I don't think he was so happy because he went right back outside. I followed him out to see what was wrong and found out that he had a headache. But after a shower and a little aspirin, he was feeling better.
He didn't have any idea!!!!! Of course he said looking back on the past few weeks, there were a few give aways, liking Cory and Lindsay leaving a message on my cell phone and I didn't get the message right away. But all and all I think it was a great night and alots of fun with our friends.
A few of our friend(Brent&Kerri, Tom&Brenda, Eric&Jami) made up this big giant birthday card for Mike with candy bars. Here's what it read:
There is a guy named , who is a , and has a of life. His throw him a party. With old age comes on the eyes, , and forgetfullness. Because of your old age, you may hear of from your friends. Don't (cry baby), because we've gathered for your special day. You may think we are , but we love you to pieces.
Some photos for his birthday. (will upload more tomorrow)
I have a birthday coming up this Saturday, and we are having my party tomorrow night. I am going to be 1 year old. Tonight my mom wanted to see what I would do, when a piece of cake was put in front of me. Well....I'm no dummy....cake is good and sweet. I grabbed the whole piece and tried to stuff it in my mouth. The piece was gone within seconds. It was sooooo good.
I can't wait!!!! Come back and see more pictures of my party.

•A giraffe's 6-foot neck weighs about 600 pounds.
•A giraffe's heart is 2 feet long and weighs about 25 pounds, and its lungs can hold 12 gallons of air!
• A giraffe's feet are the size of a dinner plate—12 inches across.
• Giraffes have the same number of vertebrae in their necks as we do—seven. Each one is just much bigger than ours!
• A giraffe's tongue is 18 to 20 inches long and blue-black. Some people think the color is to keep the tongue from getting sunburned.
• The record running speed of a giraffe is 34.7 miles per hour.
• Would you believe the giraffe has the longest tail of any land mammal? They can be 8 feet long, including the tuft on the end!
Maybe I will need to find a giraffe fabric for my next new handbag......
