Live so that when your children think of fairness and integrity, they think of you. The highest courage is to dare to be yourself in the face of adversity. Choosing right over wrong, ethic over convenience, and truth over popularity ... these are choices that measure your life. Travel the path of integrity without looking back, for there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.

Birthday Girl!!!

Spring is crazy around here for birthdays, yesterday was Hal's and My "other" Dad's 50th bday party. Saturday after Drew's game the kiddos threw their Daddy their version of a surprise party! They decorated and we bbq'd steak and shrimp, had sherbet punch and italian cream cake and watched bedtime stories. :0) They had a blast. I enjoyed a night in *YAY*

Last Monday was Haliee's Birthday and we are having her party in a few weeks because we have NO FREE time until then, lol! She wants to go camping, so we are taking 15 girls camping for a 3 days weekend, ahhhh! Too finny she has always had primadonna parties, Halieewood, etc. I could write a novel on them, I LOVE kid parties! Anyway, this year she wants to camp LOL, too funny but whatever she wants. Anyway, Sunday my Mom took her to the mall and she went nuts! They went out to dinner and shopped til they dropped just the 2 of them :0) My Mom even spent the night so she could wake up to Miss. Haliee's Girls BDay. Monday she woke up to presents, and a basic bagel and strawberries breakfast with a candle of course her brother had to jazz it up! He got her 2 different bday cards because he couldn't just choose 1. He LOVES his sis so much. We took her lunch at ate at school with her and them I jammed home to make 100 cookies for both her class and her softball team as she had a game on her birthday! She requested peace signs *SURPRISE*SURPRISE* peace signs are her thing right now as well as softballs. Of course they needed to be her favorite colors, then I ran back to the school for her little class party and then we jammed home to get her ball gear on and gather up those snacks. She also got a singing card and $$$ from My Dad and "Other" Mom :0) She was so jazzed! Here are the pics of her special day!
