The Thing I Came to Tell You

You know, I just haven't had much time to post lately. My kids have been busy with term papers, research papers and more papers.

It seems their teacher has really loaded them down with quite a lot of work to do. And being that we are a little one room, one computer school house.......I have to share.

Mother's Day was kids shower me gifts! The boys have been unloading trucks at a nursery and got some great Mother's Day deals.

It warms a mothers heart to see her kids shopping for a bargain.

But, I have to tell you all about that at another time. I have so much to do today and typically the clock is moving faster then I am.

The news of the week! The the thing I came to tell you.

Yesterday was my mothers birthday. One of the many first we have been through this year.....since....well, you know.

We had a little party. Stephen made dinner and I threw together.......THE CAKE!.......which is always home made and never boxed!

Then we where off to the baseball game.

 It was great!

We all went and really enjoyed the night. However, I do think  Auntie's Jim enjoyed the night the most...

Do you recognize him?

He is Jimmy Cooney's little boy...the famous baseball player.

Oh! Now you see it. I just had to give you a little hint.........That's all.


  1. Thank you for sharing this heartfelt post. God's blessings to you and your family. Lloyd

    Good luck and kudos to your sons.
