We Lost Chelsea September 7th-8th 2017

Our cute little Chelsea was taken from us Thursday night.  We took her to the vet and they did something that caused her to die a couple hours later. I'm not saying they did it on purpose, but we are left without our guinea pig because of their actions. She was Topher's, but really belonged to us all. Rest in peace little Chelsea, we will miss your snuggles and squeaks!

Back to School!

Back to school! Tim's senior year! Next year, I will only have one left in school :(
So handsome!!!

Topher is in 9th! Senior at his school, hahaha!
So handsome too, but HATES having his picture taken. It's because I ruined him by taking so many pictures when he was younger......
Have a great year, boys!!!

Gizmos Gets Eye Surgery

Poor Gizmo had a growth on his eye that wouldn't go away. He would scratch it and it would bleed all down his face, but then grow back. We had to take him to get it frozen off. He looks pretty good!
He usually doesn't follow me around, but that night he was my shadow. Poor Buddy! I am happy to say that almost two weeks after the fact, he is good as new!

Chelsea Grin Goes to Japan!

Chelsea Grin's first Japanese performance!
Alex said they flew them in, and flew them out, all over a weekend, so he didn't get to do much sight seeing. Still, Japan!?!
How lucky to have seen the things he has seen! So proud!

Mother's Day 2017

Happy Mother's Day to me! I got a bad case of vertigo the Friday and Saturday before. Terry busted his ass for me. He took care of me Saturday, then made my day really special on Sunday. He and the boys detailed my car. It was kind of comical to watch him try to maneuver in my tiny little bubble of a car.
Gizmo was doing his part too. Don't want those floor mats to run away, now do we?
These are the flowers that Terry gave me. Two bouquets, and I arranged them together. He was upset because they were beginning to die. They smelled WONDERFUL though and I loved the colors!
He also got me a new coffee tumbler. Can't have too many of those!
I made him pose with me! 
Alex gave me flowers too!

Ashley did as well!

Brendon didn't want to be left out!
They know I like flowers!
Tim usually makes me a card. I wondered if I was going to get one this year and when he will think he is "too old" to give his mama a home made card.
It made me cry! 
I received a lovely card from Steven and Peama too.
It came with a Benjamin! :)
I had a WONDERFUL day, one of the best in a long time. I got to see all of my kids, and we ended up spending patio time and lovely weather with Brett and Gina too. Too bad it was a school night!
Happy Mother's Day!

UPDATE!
Here are the last of the Mother's Day Flowers. They lasted the whole month counting these! <3 p="">
