All the guys in the class. D'Marcus was really great with all the kids.
Carson sitting at his teacher's work table....telling her that she's fired!
Notice the mess from the cupcakes.
The gift for me and Dad.
Chase just left for a party this morning. It's a party for the officer's in the band and it's a pajama party.

Divinity and Rice Krispie treats. No Bake cookies
I just do not care at all to be in the kitchen. What possessed me today? Not sure. I guess I needed it after yesterday. I needed to decompress-in the kitchen...what was I thinking? I DID have fun, though. I made the Rice Krispy treats for Carson since he's anaphylactic to most anything else I might have made. I LOVE them myself. Today was my first go round with divinity. My first batch was pretty good but the second batch didn't 'set' as well. Carson can also have that. It's sugar and marshmallow creme. Who's allergic to that? The no bake cookies I also love! The second batch also didn't turn out quite so good. I threw most of those out. Too gooey...must have been too much heat where I 'dropped' them. I think I might even try to do some fudge later this week (like I have time).

6] Every Christmas morning the first thing my brother and I would do is get ready. If we got a new bike, ride that down the street about 4 houses and go visit the Galbraith family. They had 7 kids. I was in between the younger girls Dawn and Debbie. Dawn was a year older and Debbie was a year younger. The middle boy Mark was Kirk's age. The whole family including the grown siblings were always there. We would always compare toys.
7] There was a particular game that I wanted one year. I have no idea what game it was...but I wanted it and I thought I had made that fact clear. Wellll....come Christmas-I DIDN'T get it! The ONE time that I can remember my mom asking if everyone was happy with what they got or maybe she even asked if we got what we wanted. "No" was my reply. "I wanted such and such game." Ruh-Ro! After I got my booty rheemed out-I was sent to my room. Sad, huh? Bratty kid. I never said they were good memories!
8] Christmas Morning 1989. Watching Mike set up a toy train for Kody. That was when I knew I had to straighten up and act right. I felt a little bit of something for him that morning. Now here we are 18 years later. This is what the memories are all about.
Ready to make more memories,

Sherwood's Christmas parade. Rain threatened pre-parade.
A few sprinkles didn't hurt us much.
Carson and his friend Michael at school before the parade. Michael came here from Wisconsin-hence the Green Bay hat. He has such a sweet mom but they are way yankee. They have that Wis-kahn-sen accent.
Across the road was our friends the Bolin's and their daughter and new son-in-law. Not sure who the girl is on the far left, Erica Johnson is next to her in the green shirt . She is one of Kody's friends and her dad and Mike were really good friends in high school. Peggy and Taco Bolin with Brittany sitting to the right. JJ and Chase are sitting on the toolbox.
FINALLY...Everyone loves a parade.
The 4th and 5th grade choir from Carson's school.

She likes to have her picture made. She stole my camera from me last Christmas and took about a billion pictures o herself.On Thanksgiving Day we headed to Bauxite. My only living grandparent lives there. As does some of my mom's side of the family.
Over the river and thru the woods
to Grandfather's house we go...
Mike, my Pawpaw, Dad and my cousin Joe
Kody Sweet little Olivia
Chase and Mike waiting to eat.
Olivia and her Poppa, Joe, my cousin
My Paw Paw and Mike I took this picture on the way home. The sky looked so bizarre. You can kinda tell here in this picture. Maybe just the way the sun was hitting the clouds. Weird.
I have great memories of going to Bauxite. Growing up we went about every other Sunday after we got home from church. We'd always eat a big lunch, spend the afternoon with family and head back home for evening church. I love that I can now share some of this with my own family.
