Ya gotta admit. Phillip the Pig has personality.
Alas, he has a job to do as he sits upon my husband's desk. Go forth, Phillip, and work for the future. Make us proud!
I love Crafts and Conversations.
I told you he had the mostest fun. It's a wonder he didn't have mud in his teeth. Mama had the fore sight to bring extra clothes so he got hosed off before getting in the truck. Long live Water Day!
The camera phone isn't too smooth on long distance pictures, but this is my baby on stage with her awards. She scored on all fronts. Even got the Citizenship Award...which is an awesome thing to get. It came with a lapel pin she had to wear the rest of the day, of course.
I love this one simply because they are acting like they like each other and no licks are being passed. Hmmm...I might have to frame this one.
Graduation theme was patriotic. Look at the flag on his shirt. It's made with his thumb prints!! Go ahead, lick the screen. I totally understand.
A year ago, this child of mine bombarded us with pleas to wear eyeliner. I refused to bend to her will and told her when she got to high school, she could wear some. I don't remember when or if my Mama gave me permission to do so, but I remember wearing it in high school. I even went so far as to tell her she could "practice" wearing it the summer before entering 9th grade. Why did I do that? Because the very next day after her last day of 8th grade, that sister was ready and waiting. In the past few days, I've watched that eye liner get darker and darker. Yesterday, I told her she looked like a raccoon that got in a bad fight. *insert eye roll here* Finally, I realized that being subtle about it wasn't working. I had to tell her to tone it down or lose it. I think I'm in for a battle of wills here. Guess who is going to win? (Call your bookie....)
That's a brief catch-up as to what's happening here at The Edge. I'm telling ya...it's non-stop action around these parts.
***I never mention brands or companies because if they aren't paying me? I ain't promoting. I mentioned this brand as being hard to deal with because I like to put my consumer research/input in***
Isn't that just all Southern Magnolia Goodness right there? It's about 5 feet long and just makes me smile every time I look at it.
This morning my babies came bearing gifts they made at school. Oh, how proud they were of their hard hand made crafty work. I just love this stuff. I save it all and bring it out from time to time just to enjoy.
My sweet baby was proud as punch of his "pink hand fower" . It's on a ceramic tile that I have no clue as to how I will preserve for the next 30 years. I shall figure it out, though.
Kenna made this cute flower wheel thing full of things she loves about her Mama. She is so creative and artistic. I love seeing things she comes up with.
Not a bad score from the younger two, huh? Of course it's stuff I'll treasure forever and try to keep just that long.
Paige was gracious and kind enough to cook most of our "Lupper" today. (that would be the meal between lunch and supper). I got to sit back and let The Man grill the meat and my baby girl cooked the rest of the meal. I am so proud of her and how comfortable she is in the kitchen. She is her Nana's child when it comes to that stuff. I say that because she enjoys cooking.....I don't.
There are no group pictures from today because Mama stayed in her gown and didn't go through any pains with her appearance whatsoever.
I would like to wish all the ladies out there a Happy Mother's Day. I've said it before and I'll say it again....You are all a Mother figure somehow somewhere. Being a woman should be qualification enough in my eyes.
Now we head into The Birthday Week. I am all a wiggle and excited over it. I have no clue what's in store, but what ever it is? I am seriously looking forward to it! Hang on, Internets, I've been told it's going to be some kind of ride!
Presentation was decent, but nothing beats seeing that huge glass full of dessert goodness being set down in front of you. This was thoroughly enjoyed by The Boy and Mak. See the little bowl in the background? That's the complimentary sunday for the birthday boy. Paige scored that because she gets all "EWWWW" about eating after people. She's weird that way. By the way, I am in LOVE with that plate. Was almost, but not quite, tempted to see if it would fit in my purse.
Mak wasn't too thrilled with the present I found for The Man. It was a coupon booklet for him to use at his discretion. She was flipping through reading it and some of them offended her. Like the "Redeem this for a clean car, inside and out, no questions asked." I think all she can see is work in her future and she is not about work. At all. She has begged me numerous times since last night to hide or dispose of the book. (You really thought I'd let him order golf clubs and call it a day? HA! He received some really cool cards, the coupon booklet, and monogrammed cuff links. I've had those cuff links for forever and couldn't wait to give them to him!) Carla and John gave him the coolest big book on submarines he can't get enough of. Dulcie and her gang gave him a monogrammed golf towel that he is more than ready to use. You could say he scored on the presents.
I put this picture in just because he's so stinkin' cute. He has a Sissy who can fix his hair the way he likes it and he found this shirt he HAD to wear because it was "cool". I am almost inclined to say he's growing up rather quickly on me.
I do believe this is now my most favorite picture in the world. Do not be surprised if it shows up to the left for you all to view on a regular basis. That, my Internets, is a picture of the loves of my life.
Yes, a wonderful time was had by all. Now, I want you all to have a good weekend out there. Stay home, gas is too expensive.
I'm thinking he has a good idea going on here and I'm also pretty sure I won't be arguing with him about it. At all.
Also, it's been decided that golf clubs are coming in the very near future. The ones that are owned now were a self gift upon completion of Power School. That would be about sixteen years or so ago. When I had no problem with him getting a new set, boy did he jump right on the internet and start doing some serious window shopping. Did you know you can buy a piece of metal that is called a golf club for over $300.00?? ONE CLUB?!?!? Yeah, we brought that helium balloon down quick like.
Happy Anniversary of your Birth, Man. I sure do love you and wish to share many more and all types of anniversaries with you in this life time!
