Mr. Boone

Our local high school is named after the explorer, Daniel Boone. You know, the guy with the coone skin cap. Daniel Boone grew up as a child in this area until he was older and moved to the Tennessee region. We have a homestead that you can go visit the house Daniel Boone lived in. The elementery schools always have field trips there.

My nephew, Kyle is a senior at Daniel Boone High School. He got to compete in a pageant called "Mr. Boone". It is similar to a beauty pageant, expcept with guys - and ALOT funnier!
There were about 15 guys who tried out. They put on dance routines and skits. Very impressive to see a bunch of teenage boys pull it off!
Kyles talent was pretending to sing to an Annie song while going thru a flip chart with hilarious sayings! This particular sign said "This pageant is SO RAVEN". One said "Does this dress make me look fat?"

For the swim suit competition, Kyle wore "Sponge Bob".
Kyle looked really handsome in his formal wear. All the guys had to answer a question that the girls presented.
Unfortunately Kyle didn't win, but we all had a great time watching him. If you knew Kyle two years ago you would not have thought he would ever do something like this. He was so shy. Now he is class President and a very outgoing, confident young man. I'm so proud of my nephew!

Zacharys Boo-Boo

Friday night began with a night out to the movies with two of my friends. We were celebrating Joette's birthday. When I got home at 9:30pm, Zachary was laying on the couch with a washcloth on his knee. Todd says "Honey, can you take a look at Zach. He fell outside while playing lacrosse." So I lift up the washcloth and was horrified! He had a gash in his knee with the skin scraped off and the muscle tissue visable. ICK! He also chipped his front tooth and hurt his thumb.



I didn't panic, but my adrenilin did get kicking. First I took him to Joettes house because her sister, Nikki is a nurse. I wanted to get an opinion to see if he needed stiches. Nikki works at Premier Medical Care, which is like an emergeny room if your doctors office is closed. Joette said Nikki was working, but they closed at 9pm. (It was now almost 10pm). Joette called Nikki and she got permission from the doctor to bring Zachary right in! I was so grateful! Nikki cleaned up his knee and the doctor put in 5 stiches. He got an x-ray of the thumb, but everything checked out okay.


Zach can't play lacrosse for a week, until the stiches are out. He is so bored right now, he is driving us crazy!!

She Thinks My Tractors Sexy....


My niece, Morgan slept over Saturday night so Mom and Dad could get some adult time. Todd was mowing the lawn and Morgan wanted to go for a ride ~ that is until the tractor started and she was startled by the loud noise! After that Morgan just watched Uncle Todd and Brandon.

Stephanie Plum, Bounty Hunter


Watch out World! Here comes Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter. She is a product of New Jersey with a meddling mom and crazy grandma! Her first assignment: nail Joe Moreilli. Joe is a cop and also an irresistable macho pig who took Stephanies virginity at age 16. There is still powerful chemistry between the two, so the chase is interesting!! The Stephanie Plum series is witty, fresh and full of surprises. One for the Money is just the first of 15 novels. I am on Book #6 and really enjoying the series. Very entertaining and funny!

Home Schooling

As many of you know, I am beginning an in-home child care service. I would like to provide a curriculum for the children ages 2 to 4. I recently signed up for www.edhelper.com and www.biblefunzone.com I was wondering if any of the home school moms out there in my blog world had any recommendations.

LAX style






Brandon's first game. He attempted the long pole for the first time, but wasn't quite sure of himself. He switched back to the regular stick and performed much better. He's a good little defenseman!

First day with Zoey!




Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter day. We went to church, ate lunch at Todd's parents, watched the kids have an Easter Egg hunt and then went home for a relaxing evening.

Girls night out at my favorite Italian restaurant!


Our waiter, Phil.

Wendy used the tablecloth to wipe her mouth! OOps! She thought the napkin was in her lap!

Joette was flirting with the waiter!



The guys stayed home to play poker and the girls went out for dinner. It was fun to go out and have excellent food, a fine wine and laugh like crazy!!
