Look what we reeled in...

Happy Father's Day

I know a bunch of y'all don't flickr so I'm posting this over here in blogger land as well! Two cute kids, fo' sho!

We had a great Father's day celebration at our home - my sister, her hubby and their kids all flew in from Kansas and NC; my parents and my grandmother were there; as well as my in-laws. The weather held out (AFTER we had cleaned the house from top to bottom) so we were able to stay outside the entire afternoon. The kids were in heaven running around the yard, blowing bubbles, drinking obscene amounts of juice, eating everything they could grab when the parents weren't watching, and filling our yard with giggles galore! What a blessing it was to spend the day together!

Baby Blogging Steps (and NO, I'm not preggers!)

This is for Dora and Adam and Trudy - whom I love VERY much (and who have now guilted me back into steps my friends!)

Alyssa and I spent Saturday up in Danbury with Dora and her knitting friends! What can I say except we had a FABULOUS time - and I, for one, will miss Trudy SO SO SO much! As you'll recall, Dora is my SWS (Sock Wars Sister) and I just love her to pieces! Thanks for a lovely (albeit rainy/muggy) day!

Alrighty...I've got some pride to share

My little-sis just received an Educator of the Year award from the Army. Here's the article...

I'm still and there...but you can, of course, find me DAILY on flickr

In other news I found out that I had strep late last week (I had been starting to feel pretty miserable) and while it's a week later on MORE antibiotics (long story) I'm still not 100%...but definitely on the mend - hooray!

It's a rainy day (again) here in NYC and I'm SO ready for the weekend...NASCAR at Pocono Raceway on Sunday - yippie, I loves me some racin' boys!

So how are all of you doin'?
