It's been waaaay too long since I've posted on my blog page. A resolution for 2011 is to return to blogging. I need to take some pics and get a few things organized and then I will be up and running. It's been fun to look back at the pictures I've posted in the past . . . they have jogged my memory! WOW, have my kids changed!

WOW! It's been over three years since I last posted to this blog. Where has the time gone! It's fun to see the pictures from "way" back then. How little Mr. Rockstar was!

Bet you thought I fell off the face of the earth . . .

Ha! I didn't, but Carrie, I bet you've taken me off your bloglist! :0 I've just been crazy busy and haven't had a chance to do my blog.

What's happened in the last month:

Morgan got an expander. . .
  Posted by Picasa OUCH!!!

We got a puppy and have been diligently potty training . . .

The little guy's name is Rocky a.k.a. "Rockstar." We picked him up last Saturday at a friend's brother's farm.

Went to the zoo for Mother's Day . . .

Walked the AIDS Walk (6.2 miles). I went with my sister, Rose, and my two cousins Dayna and Lynn.

I've mowed my lawn at least 3 times and was hit by shrapnel last night (I'm okay, but my ankle is sure going to be pretty in a few days!)
Spent an afternoon getting to know my neighbors and their two kids
Getting the kids ready for the end of school and planning the summer activities -- 5 more days left and I'll have a 4th & 5th grader!

I'm sure there's more but I can't think of anything else right now

Going to Girl Scout camp this Saturday with Morgan -- overnight -- will update with pics -- if I remember to bring my camera! :-)

In celebration of spring and since I had to mow my lawn this week for the first time this year, I thought I'd post a picture of something green! These are chives that I grow in my front yard -- I also have rosemary. I use them for cooking. Last year I had basil (thanks mom & dad) and I'll probably get some again this year since I used it more than the chives last year.

Today was gloomy -- it's supposed to rain until Tuesday so I spent the day organizing papers (finally!), making homemade chicken & dumpling soup and bread (o.k. I cheated with the bread machine) and just putzing around the house. Tomorrow is piano lessons and I'm probably going to make the cookies that I never got around to doing today. Posted by Picasa

I know, I haven't blogged in like FOREVER -- it's amazing I still remember my password! I'll try to update this weekend -- and with some pics!

MN Aids Walk

This year's AIDS walk is scheduled for Sunday, May 21. My sister and I will again be participating in memory of our two cousins, Kerry & Kevin and hopefully we can get a few cousins to join us. It is a 6.2 mile walk and we have had beatiful days to walk in the two years that we've been doing it. Last year, Morgan joined us on her rollerblades . . . Aunt Rosie & I ended up pulling her most of the way! So, I'm dusting off my walking shoes and getting ready to help raise money for AIDS research. Wish me luck . . .
