Here are a few pictures from the baby shower that the girls and I threw for Auntie Ana and cousin Maggie. We can't wait for her arrival. The girls had a lot of fun helping me plan, decorate and pick the games for the shower. They decided to wear their beautiful flower girl dresses for the occasion. I am so glad that so many of Ana's friends could make it to the shower - especially with it being Memorial Day Weekend. I just don't think she could have made it to the next weekend. I think we may have a new cousin by then - YEAH!!!!

We took Ashlyn to Urgent Care today. She has been sick for the past few days with a really high temperature (102.4 - 103.2). Turns out she has the flu, an earache, a urinary tract infection and strep throat (most likely - she wouldn't let them stick that stick down her throat for a 2nd time - but they are almost positive). She has been sleeping a lot and has missed all week of school. I am had our carpets cleaned on Thursday - so she had to take a nap in the hammock. I hope she is feeling well soon.

OK - here it is FINALLY!! The pictures that I promised from the 2009 Cooper Mountain Cougar Fun Run. Kenna did AWESOME. She ran 19 laps and had a great time. We brought Ashy along also and she got out there and ran with her big sister. Ash ran 4 laps. They both had a lot of fun. Kenna's class won the pizza party for first grade - she is so excited about that.
Kenna wants to send a special GREAT BIG THANK YOU to all those who supported her in the fun run and helped the school get closer to their goal of raising money for new computers & visits from authors for next year. They are: Gramma & Grampa Dougherty, Grammy & Grampy Lucas, Uncle Steve - Auntie Ana - cousins Walt & Maggie, Auntie Shanny - Uncle Kori - cousins Kodee & Kirra, Uncle Spency & Auntie Miss Bett, Uncle Eddie & Auntie Bebe, Auntie Julie, Uncle Mike & Auntie Linda, Woltkamp Family, Auntie Donna & Uncle Cliff, Auntie Courtney & Uncle Mike, Auntie Tracy - Uncle Mark & baby Dylan, and finally daddy, mommy & ash!
I woke up this morning and thought WOW ... how can I be this old?? Kenna asked me the other day if there were dinosaurs around when I was a little girl. Can you believe that? So you know what I told her?? No - that was only when gramma & grampa & grammy & grampy were little. ha! ha! I am so bad. Anyway - happy birthday to me - YEAH! Thanks everyone for the great birthday wishes. And a SUPER BIG thanks to my brother for remembering me today. Oh wait - that's right ... he forgot!!!

It is that time of year again - time to work on our garden. This year we have added a border to it. thanks to Brad & Thor for hauling those HUGE railroad ties to the backyard - man those were heavy. We now have a raised garden.
The girls are having a great time watching everything grow. So far we have planted: peas (Ashlyn's favorites), tomatoes, watermelon, cucumbers, peppers, basil, and pumpkins (Kenna's favorites).

I found most of my pictures. I had saved them on the computer downstairs. I only lost about a week's worth of pictures ... that is not so bad. But I have learned my lesson and I download after each outing now. Go back and take a look - I am catching up on my back blogging. ENJOY!!
