lots of EXCITEMENT






Starting with Friday the 13th...It was my 28th Birthday. I was born on a Friday the 13th but it was Good Friday so that canceled out the bad luck. I think? Friday for lunch Ronnie, Faith, Jaylee and I went to Olive Garden. This is one of my favorite places to eat. Its unfortunate that my husband hates the place so I usually only get to eat there once a year on my birthday or when I'm pregnant. He's a little more accommodating during that time:) Then Ronnie watched the kids while I went to the mall BY MYSELF! Then that night we went to eat at AZ88 in Scottsdale with James and Nicole and then to see Wild Hogs. I laughed none stop the whole movie. I had a great Friday the 13th Birthday. Thank you to Lydia for watching our girls!

Saturday was my Grandpa Merls birthday so our whole family went to Mi Amigos to celebrate all April birthdays. There was about 25 of us. Besides the restaurant giving our private room reservation away (previously made a month before) to another party, we all had a great time.

Today Ronnie finally blessed Jaylee. For those of you who know Ronnie he is not a shy guy, but when it comes to speaking in church he turns to jello. It has taken Ronnie 6 months to get the nerve up but he did a great job. Grandma Lydia made Jaylee her beautiful dress. The dress fit great but she was too big for the cute bonnet and booties. The bottom picture is of Jaylee and her cousin Brody taken today after the blessing. We had a busy but exciting weekend.

Jaylee is the sweetest little girl!!! I'm so glad that I'm her Grandma! Sunday was a very special day and I'm really glad that the dress still fit her. I might have had to take out my frustrations on Ronnie..he's lucky! We made the cobbler for dessert. One was peach and the other cherry. They were yummy!

If you would like to read a perfect book, try mine - "An Ordinary Black Cat" available from www.catyourway.com Just read the 1st chapter (free) and then let me know whether you are interested. Some people couldn't prepare for their exams as they couldn't stop reading it. Don't strat when you have only 10 minutes or so before something important as you would be forced to cancell whatever ...Certainly, do let me know... Cheers!
