Sweet Baby Regan

I just had to share this. When I went to wake Regan up this morning (in MY bed as usual) she rolled over and said, "No mom, I'm having a dream and you'll break it!"

I hated to break her dream, but school is ALMOST out and she can dream till her hearts content all summer long!

Splash Day

Today was Splash Day for Riley's school. It's always so much fun, we meet at the church by his school and lay out huge sheets of plastic and put sprinklers along it, and they slide down this huge hill. Regan gets to go have fun with the big kids since I (according to David) have to be involved in everything! So here are a couple of pics of the kids sliding down and having a great time.

Regan Graduates!!


Today Regan graduated from Pre-K! It was a great ceremony, the kids looked so cute with their little caps on. They walked down the aisle to Pomp and Circumstance, recited the Poem, All Things Great and Small, where they each had their own lines to say, and sang several songs, one about a mom who cries hysterically when they go to kindergarten. Then they had a slide show that played several songs, one of which was Butterfly Kisses. Then they called their names and one by one each kid got to go up on stage and get their "diploma". Regan has been telling me for weeks that I was gonna cry and silly me, I didn't believe her, but guess what? I did. I wasn't alone, Pam sat next to me and we cried together. It just seems like yesterday when we were headed off to the hospital to have her.

After the ceremony, the kids had a piece of cake with Regan's face on it, and we headed to Taco Cabana for Regan's favorite, a bean and cheese.

Happy Mother's Day

Mother's Day 07

Leo and Linda came in for the weekend, Aunt Tiffany had to have surgery again, so Linda spent most of the time at the hospital with her, and Leo spent most of his time in the kitchen! He brought a 40# bag of crawfish and a cooler full of crabs, so on Friday we let the kids play around with them some, and surprisingly, Riley was eating them up. Regan must take after her mom cause she wasn't having any of it. Riley had a friend over, Michael, who ate some too, and really enjoyed it, and we were told later his grandma was SO jealous!!

Last night we went to Pam and Dave's and the guys grilled steak, pork tenderloin, squash, zucchini, eggplant, asparagus, and we had mashed potatoes and salad, and the world's best chocolate cake from Whole Foods, yum. It was a pleasant evening with family, to celebrate Mother's Day since Leo and Linda had to head back to LA today and David has to go in to work this afternoon.

Job Update

Well, as most of you know, David's job contract is almost up (early) and he's been interviewing with other companies, and/or trying to find another position with the same company. So far he's interviewed with a position in Melbourne, Australia, so that would be fun, but I can't even handle thinking of all the daunting details of putting the house up for rent, packing all of our stuff (again) to put in storage, for the 1-3 year contract down under. It would be an adventure, and one I'm sure the kids would enjoy, so we would go if nothing else comes up.

He had another job interview today, with Seton, sounds promising, and another position was offered to him from Cisco, but it's from noon to midnight Fri-Sun, and every other Monday, talk about crappy hours! But he would love to work there, so it might be worth it to get in somewhere there. If not, it may be off to the land down under for us!!

Pixie Girl

Well, Regan wanted her hair cut, SHORT, so I took her in to Cool Cuts and got it cut, but after, it looked like a bowl!! So I had to go back the next day and have them fix it up some. Regan wanted it shorter, but I think it's cute the way it is. Now if she will keep her cute little hair clips in, she won't look like a boy. She wants to get more Dolphin earrings too, so maybe she will keep them in this time. First picture is the bowl, the last one is the new and improved version.
