Kira's new blog

My daughter finally started a blog. Even though we keep in touch on Facebook, and even though she only lives 2 1/2 hours away in Oregon, we don't get to see each other much and I told her blogging is a way to share pictures with family, and they don't have to belong to blogspot like you have to belong to FB. Also it is a great way to meet friends. I have met many through my blog and all of them are special to me. So if you want to welcome Kira to the blog world go on over to her blog All under one roof.

Darrian and his little friend Ellie play together every day. I think they are adorable. He said to me the other day "mom, I'm going to miss it when we leave WA." I asked why and he said "I will miss my girlfriend." He has no idea that this might only be the first of a few broken hearts for him along the way.

Vanessa's birthday

Today is my daughter Vanessa's 21st birthday. My how time flies. She is living in Hawaii but will be coming home for a visit in June. We are looking forward to it. Anyway I just wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday and let her know we are proud of her and are thinking of her on her special day.

Brandon will be home from his first year of college. I know he won't be here for long but we will enjoy him while he is at home. Vanessa is supposed to be coming in from Hawaii for a few weeks soon and Dominic will be on 2 weeks R&R in July. So our house will be full once again. My daughter Kira and her husband and my 3 grandkids are in Oregon so that is nice. We are going to visit her this weekend. It's a 2 1/2 hour ride to her house so we don't go all the time, but we are going to bring her brother down so that they can spend time with each other. Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Club Penguin

The kids love to play the online game Club Penguin. I like it because it is an innocent kid's game that is monitored. It actually suits kids of all ages although the older one's would never admit it. They just sit at the computer with the younger kids and pretend like they are helping them. Does it look like the big kids are helping....more like the big kid is playing.

Blueberry muffins and tea

Made some blueberry muffins and had some with tea on Rae Dunn pottery of course
