Cookout time!

Stephanie came home yesterday so we were all very excited to have her back. She had a great time on her trip. We stayed up late last night hearing all about it. We had a cookout yesterday with some friends, including our Romanian ones. Their nephew, Mircea is visiting with them now, the same boy that Stephanie has been emailing back and forth and IM'ing and such. He was so excited to see her. He brought me flowers and he brought her a clock that tells her what time it is in Romania (they are 7 hours ahead). We had a great time, just ate way too much food and probably gained back the two pounds I lost this week, lol!

Here is a pic of the kids. From left to right:
Mircea, Kim, Will, Stephanie, and Kristi

Also, I came across a pic from Kim's 1st b-day party. She had Elmo on her cake. It's so hard to believe she is 13 now and her sister, who is standing next to her is 16. My, how time flies.

My baby turned 13!

I am having a depressing month. First Stephanie leaves us for 2 weeks and then Kim, my baby turned 13. It's too much to handle at one time I tell ya. Stephanie is having a great time in Florida. She is learning so much there. She is actually considering a career in it. I told her that she wouldn't be able to work in our small town and make any kind of money. Her best bet would be SBI or FBI. Who knows. She was the only one in her group to successfully complete a facial reconstruction on a computer program. She did admit to falling asleep during a psychology lecture, but she knew the information because she just finished a college level psychology class at school. They are keeping them on the go from 7 in the am to 10 at night so it was catching up to her.

Hubby turned 42 today and I stopped and bought him a cake from Ganache bakery. It was chocolate with fudge icing. It was costly, but sinfully delicious.

I tried to put some pics from Kim's bday on here, but my Kodak program is giving me a hard time. I will try again later.

Til next time...........

I'm still here!

Hello everyone!

According to Dick, I am due for another post, lol! Sorry for the absence. Softball season is over so I guess I will be home more in the evenings to play catch up on everyone's blogs. Sorry again for my absence there.

Well, Stephanie is in Ft Lauderdale as we speak solving crimes and such. 200 kids showed up for the conference and there is a 3 to 1 ratio of girls against guys so you know the guys are loving it, lol! She's been gone since Tuesday morning and I miss her like crazy. I don't know what I am going to do when she goes off to college. She is having a great time though and learning all kinds of cool things. Yesterday they started learning about processing a crime scene since the first night one of the staff was "killed" off.

Today they are doing fingerprint analysis I think. They are staying in a dorm room and she said that dorm rooms weren't what she thought they would be. Apparently it is an older school, so she said it was a bit musty, but they do have a full bathroom in their room. I told her that she should be grateful they didn't have community showers.

I want her to have a good time, but I hope the 27th comes soon!

Have a great weekend everyone and for all the father's out there, Happy Father's Day!
