We have been a little bit crazy around here for the last few months. Lot of traveling (buisness related, not the fun kind.)

I did get Damon's announcements mailed a couple weeks ago. So, if you haven't gotten one yet let me know. The same day I sent them, I was mailing post cards, and some never reached their destination. So, I wanted to make sure that didn't happen with these. We plan on having lunch at our house after. Also, since it is Damon's birthday he really wants to have a "game party" as he called it. "You just put a bunch of games out and everyone can go to whatever one they want, and play," was about how he described it to me. So, if you have a fun game let me know. I am hoping for good weather and maybe some outside games, too. And, we have plenty of room for anyone who wants to stay over night. Just let me know.

Happy Mother's Day!

Damon had me cover my eyes since he didn't wrap the gifts he made me at school.

Also, I wanted to let everyone know that Damon's 8th birthday and baptism are coming up. I haven't mailed invitations yet, but I wanted to give some notice. It will be on Sat. June 4th at 10:00 a.m.

As I'm sure every mom says, "I can't believe he's 8!"

Our Easter!

I realized today that I never posted pictures of our Easter. It was such a fun day. The weather was cooperative (a little chilly, but no snow) and we had visitors.

After digging through his basket, Damon said, "Aren't these the eggs you can use as lipstick? But, I'm not going to use them as lipstick since I'm a boy." And then the next time I looked, he had them smeared all over his face. Oh, and isn't his bedhead sweet? Every morning!

I got Damon a Children's Dictionary. I have been on the hunt for a good one ever since he said he wanted one a few months ago. How could I say no to that? This one has lots of good pictures, but also age appropriate defintions, and a pronunciation key. He reads it with a flashlight almost everynight before bed.

Damon was really excited when I taught him how to color an egg with rainbow stripes.

I think next year the lesson will be how to color eggs, without coloring your fingers. Don't know if that one will be quite as exciting.

Easter Sunday was also my parents 30th wedding anniversary and I was glad they chose to share it with us. My Mom got these gangsta' teeth especially for the occasion and thought it would be fun if they wore them for a picture. I think Tyler and I will do the same on our 30th.
