Relay for Life

A couple of our favorite survivors!

And, just hangin' out!

Enough Lotion to Share

I was upstairs getting ready for our trip to the playground. When I came back downstairs this was what I found. Kaylee was applying enough lotion to last until next year. Needless to say, she has VERY soft skin today!

You Might be a Redneck if...

Yes. That is two bales of straw in my backseat
No. Kaylee is not under it.

Finally...I Finished One

Disclaimer: This is a quilting post. If you only read this blog for updates on Kaylee, feel free to close your browser now. Otherwise, here are a couple pics of the finished project.

This isn't the first quilt I started, but it is the first quilt I finished.

It was a lot of fun to make. Thank you to Marilyn and the other Church Mice for all your help and advice.

Grandma the Graduate

Grandma Kay graduated from Indiana Tech last weekend. The ladies at work decorated her office for the occasion.
Doesn't she look scholarly...

And finally here is Grandpa Steve entertaining Kaylee prior to commencement. Or maybe Kaylee was entertaining Grandpa Steve, either way, they both had a pretty good time.
Congrats on your accomplishment. We are proud of you!

Party Time!

Mother's Day was filled with fun for Kaylee. Our Mother Daughter Banquet for church was held at Tiffany's in Topeka. We had a really nice time. Here is Aunt Karen trying to get Kaylee to look at the camera...unsuccessfully I might add.

This was our attempt for a four generations picture. As you can see, Kaylee was less than cooperative.

On Mother's Day we had family over to our house to celebrate all the moms we love. Kaylee thought that since there was cake we should all sing Happy Birthday and let her blow out candles...and when there are four grandmas present Kaylee generally gets her way!

It was a great Mother's Day. Kaylee/Cory bought me a beautiful potted geranium in Kaylee's favorite color - PINK. Our family is very blessed to have so many grandmas that each love us so much.

DIY - Landscaping

So, I never really thought of Cory and I as 'do it yourself' - ers. Anyway, we decided to attempt the revamp of our landscaping around the house. I arrived home from church last Sunday to see the following:

Cory was pulling the bushes with his truck. Truth be told, I think he was kinda enjoying the whole thing. (He later broke out with poison ivy, so that might squash some of the fun.)

Here is a pic of Kaylee hanging out while we worked.

And finally...

We still have three sides of the house to go, but at least we are making progress.
