Mom: You are a good listener and always make me feel better when I talk to you.
Dad: You've always got a good story to tell. I think that's where I got it.
Lisa: You are so easy to be around. Even when you're stressed, you're not stressful to be around.
Jennifer: You are very generous. You are always willing to give anything or do anything at anytime.
Michelle: You're very talented. I love your decorating skills. You are one of the most creative people I know.
Sam: You are a lot of fun. You are the life of the party, even when there is no party.
Emily: You are a good friend. You are fun to hang out with.
I love you all so much. I look forward to getting together with you all.

These pictures don't do the number of pox justice. They were EVERYWHERE! Poor little guy.
Not me, as I'm sure there was some confusion! This is my little sister Emily. We do just about everything together much to her husband's dismay.
Frosting and decorating sugar cookies with Emily and her kids (her husband Scott was there too) for Family Home Evening a couple of weeks ago. So much fun - especially eating the cookies the next day while the girls were at school.
Some mornings I walk the girls to school. When it got cold one morning I searched for a hat for Sammy to wear. This was what I found. He still managed to look amazingly handsome in it!

Oh, by the way, this is Emily....
AND check out my blog to see the only two pictures I took from the trip - man I am lame.

I need people to buy prizes. Here is a list of prizes needed:
30 suckers (more or less)
20-30 Kid prizes (dollar store stuff or whatever)
3 Adult type prizes
I need someone to find a golf course for the golf game.
If you have not given me shirt sizes, please do that asap.
We are doing an "Egg Drop" at the reunion.
I'll explain: Below you will find a list of items you may use. In groups of either 1 or 2, you will construct a container to hold your egg. Create your egg container now or at the reunion, but you can only use the approved items. While at the beach we will be dropping everyone's egg containers, with an egg inside them, from the top of the house. Whoever's egg does not break, wins. If you have questions, please let me know. Here is the list:
10 pieces of paper
5 popsicles sticks
3 cotton balls
4" of duct tape
6 paper clips
14" of string
10" of scotch tape
Good luck - I look forward to some interesting creations!

I will tell you all (mostly Lisa) that we have decided that we need to make a full size life-size cardboard Lisa. I came up with that brilliant idea the other night when we were taking a picture of mom with all of her girls (except Lisa of course). We were missing her and saying that she should be in our pictures and so, because she/you is/are so far away, it would seem that the only solution, other than moving (out of the question I suppose), is to make a stand in! We'll get on that asap!
In other news - my party at Renee's went well and we have one scheduled for next week at Melissa's.
The REALLY exciting news (other than working on a cardboard Lisa) is that I found the CUTEST white dresses at Children's Place. Not only were they the cutest, but they were on sale. Yeah, that's right - on sale. $20! Alright, that's not a steal, but it is a sale and seeing as they are the cutest dresses, I found it to be well worth it. There were actually two different styles and TOTALLY perfect for pictures on the beach. I'm just letting all of you know that have daughters because they are really pretty and I love them. I'm not letting the girls touch them, however, until that very day!
Other news - none!
Love - Michelle

Also, last night at Mom's, we (Rice's, Hill's, S. DeLong's and Padres) were talking about the t-shirts for the reunion. I need to make sure we put everyone in age order correctly (it's for the shirts, don't worry about it). So, please check this and let me know if we made any errors:

In all reality, Jane does Tap Dance and does it quite well I might add. She and Kate have their dance recital at Kingsbury Hall in a couple of weeks. Kate has opted out of dance for next year, while Jane asked to take the summer session and do a more intensive program next school year. So next year Kate will be doing some sports (and I'm requiring an instrument or singing) and Jane will be doing Jazz, Ballet, Tap, and Tumbling. She also wants to take Voice Lessons. I'm telling you, getting

I went to visit the parents today, I know you're all thinking "Renee, visiting the parents? how strange", and while there I noticed something different in the driveway. Evidently crawling under a car is too much work. Tipping one over is much easier. So, as if our parents weren't weird enough, they now have this sitting in their driveway. And we call the neighbors the Clampets? Lets see, dad plays the banjo, loves to sit by a fire, has this car in his driveway, and wears a lot of denim. Dad, I think you are Joe Clampet!

Last week I decided that BooBoo and I would go swimming. She loved it a lot! We swam for about 1 1/2 hours. Gracie decided to join us for a little while, but was a little unsure about the whole thing. I love that Isabel loves the water. She could spend all day in a pool, or bath. She's just like her mom, a water baby.

I am officiall going into retirement. I am not longer able to keep the blog up-to-date with Birthdays and Anniversarys, and other events. I am too busy with packing. So, whoever would like to do - it's all yours. I am literally going crazy with stress and anxiety over my house. So, goodbye all. I will no longer be slacking on my administrative duties. Thanks for the good times.
