Here are my kiddo's..... Going off to school. Its so sad to say that Josh is now a Senior. Where has the time gone.
Lauren was so excited to meet her teacher for the first time, and was ready for the first day. I am not to sure about Josh. At least he smiled for the camera.

The resort we stayed at was beautiful. Here we are sitting in front of our Hotel. The picture of the pier was taken from our room.
If anyone is looking for a great place to go on vacation. I highly recommend Charleston. There is alot of things to do, no matter what the age. We took a carriage ride through town and saw all the historical sites. Wow, how amazing.

Welcome to the family, Mia!!!
Here she is.................. We brought our newest member of our family home, yesterday.
Lauren picked out her name. Anyone want to guess where she got the name from?
Princess Diaries, her favorite movie. Of course, Mia has a pink glittery collar, but she has to grow a little more. Lauren picked that out too!
She has been a joy to watch. Mia is very outgoing as well. She nuzzled up to Sparky right away. And follows us every where. If we leave the room, she cries for us. What a little sweety! Zoe is very curious about this little girl. I think they will soon be playing together. As far as Buddy goes, he is a 87 pound knuckle head. We will have to watch him very carefully so he doesn't crush her. EEK!
She found one of my baskets and loves to sleep in it. Hopefully she will opt for her kitty condo soon.

We were able to all have time away for a little fun. We loaded up the truck and went up to the Lake. We spent 3 days at the Great Wolf Lodge. I think George and I had as much fun as the kids. I have to admit.... Getting up and going into the water at 9:00 in the morning was a bit much for me, but Lauren was not going to miss out on any fun. Josh was the only smart one, he slept in. :o)

May 15th, The Rotary Club surprised my dad with "Citizen of the Year". We all took the day off to attended the lunch. George said a few words and Lauren wrote her own speach. When it came time to say it, she said "NO WAY"! So George said it for her. Josh took wonderful pictures of the event. We are all so pround of Dad! We love him sooooooo much!

Lauren finally did it! She pulled out her teeth. This big space will not allow her to whistle. :o( But she was really excited to see what the tooth fairy left. We were discussing what we thought the tooth fairy looked like and how she gets to all the homes that need to be visited. I really don't think she cared, as long as she visited our house.

We spent a big portion of the day on Sunday outside. It was a beautiful day! Josh and Natalie hung out and watched a horror movie and played video games. George and Lauren washed the truck and then decided to go jump. BOUNCE~BOUNCE~BOUNCE~

Lauren and I were over to visit Grandma and Grandpa yesterday, and found out the Blondie and Coco are sick. As of last night Coco seemed to be doing better, but Blondie was still sick. Dog-gone-it! We are all hoping that the puppy sisters, or grandpuppies or ???? are doing better today. (sorry, I am in rare form today!)
Its also Earth Day today, so go out and do some earthy things. Lauren and I are going to Orr Park today with my Mother Study Club to clean up trash. It is going to be a beautiful day today. SO ENJOY YOUR DAY!

Sorry for the lack of posts. Don't think that I don't like to take photo's, because I think my two are photogenic. But, on the other hand, they are not little ones anymore. :o( I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We were able to go hear my dad preach on Easter Sunday and enjoy family. It really doesn't get any better than that!

Happy almost Friday! Yes, I lied. I am sooooo sorry. I said that I would post last weekend but didn't. I am a baaaaaaaadddddd blogger. :o)
Well, Lauren had a blast at her friends slumber party last Friday/Saturday. Chloe's mom had 10 or 11 girls spend the night. Crazy, don't you think? But let me tell you, she also has 6 month old twin girls and her hubby was working on Friday until 11:00. So, in my eyes, she is SUPER WOMAN! There is some pictures of the slumber party on her blog, and it is "the Hunt girls", you can click on it down on the left on my blog. Go check it out.......
After getting Lauren home from the slumber party, she decided to puncture herself 3/4 of an inch with a pencil into her upper leg. OUCH!!!!!!!! Mom, (me) wanted to rush her hysterical little girl to the hospital, but dad (George) being the calm, lets look at the situation kind of person, said call the doctor. So, we did just that..... I called the doctor.. WHEW, that was toooo easy. We followed the doctors suggestions, and to make a long story short, she is doing great. I had taken pictures, I know, sounds odd, but I am not posting them because they are gross! YUCK!

But it is Friday and I am ready for the weekend, aren't you? Lauren is so excited, today is one of her friends birthday sleepover parties. This will be the first, so Rach, good luck! hehehe (just kidding)
Not much is going on right now. Just kinda bummed because the sun isn't out, and it is 30 something degrees right now. And to think, it was almost 70's on Tuesday. :o( I am ready for spring!!!!!!
I will try to get some more pictures on this weekend. I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!

Oh yeah! I actually was able to get a picture of Josh today. But he didn't do it for me, he had to have it for a school project. But who's complaining, I actually got a real smile out of him. I wonder where he got the dimples from?

Hi, this is me Lauren, I just had to tell you and everyone else in my class today, that my mom was not " with it " this morning. Mom woke up and had me ready and my hair curled for school pictures today. Then one of the moms that my mom babysits for, told her it wasn't until tomorrow. Geesh Mom, get with it! Anyhow, I thought I looked pretty cute for the day. So did mom, so she had to take another picture.

I was going back through some of my pictures, and for some reason I kept coming back to this.... This was a picture of the sky right before a storm. It looks so peaceful to me.
It represents life. (The calm before the storm) Also, that even in the middle of a terrible storm, there is beauty.

Finally, here are pictures of Lauren's birthday party we had on Monday. Lauren decided to have a spa sleep-over party, but then came down with Bronchitis the day before, and had to cancel. So, we decided to do a day spa instead, so she didn't have to wait so long. But unfortunatly, one of her friends, Kailey ended up sick Monday, we missed her not being a part of the celebration. All of the girls seemed to have fun getting their nails done as well as a facial. Then topped it off with dressing up in fancy dresses. I had as much fun as they did, and was sad to see it end. Lauren has a great group of friends. And I just love that the girls' moms are great friends too. BIG HUGS!!!

I know this is an old picture, but I am still dealing with a computer that won't cooperate with me. The main computer holds all the recent photos, so until I can talk my husband into looking into it, I will post some older pictures. since the kids are a year older now, I am now looking into the next year when Josh is a Senior. So I am thinking (yes thinking) of doing some serious scrapbooking for him, so I can get caught up. I have only been into scrapbooking for a year or so, and Josh is 17 now, I have alot to do. I posted this picture because this is how I see my kids together. With Josh and Lauren being 10 years apart, We do not have the fighting. Josh is like a 3rd parent. If George and I ease up a little on something, it is not unusual for Josh to step in. I am not sure if this will be a good thing for Lauren when she gets into High School though. I know Josh will be watching every move. We are so truly blessed to have two wonderful kids. We love them sooooo much!

This is a shot I happened to get lucky at. Josh and his famous "Slide Tackle". I would say this is one of my favorite shots of Josh playing soccer. Soccer is Josh's love. But I have to brag a little bit, Josh's is the BEST BIG BROTHER, EVER! I went to a meeting last night, and he watched Lauren. Not only feeding her dinner and making sure she showered, but he even took her to get an ice cream cone, and he didn't get one himself. Is that awesome or what!

These are photos of Lauren I took in the back, just in fun. This was about a year ago, and as you can tell, Lauren loves to pose. Sorry for several posts in a day, but as the saying goes "Keeping up with the Jones's" well, I don't have the Jones, but do have the Hunt's. Mrs. Rachel is hounding me to get busy, so I am doing just that!
