OMG... The Summer Is Over!!!!!!

I have so many pics of my matty too, but these are my TRI pics for Marc. I have a lot of the summer to upload - but nothing tops my Marc's Triathlon's. improvements, and victories....... He did 3 Tri's this summer, as most Triathletes know, it started with swimming, then biking then running it out. He has done awesome!!!!! At his 3rd Tri, he went over a wet bridge on his bike, fell down - got back up, ran his little butt off and took 3rd place by a millisecond. I'll have to show you the professional pics. They bring tears to my eyes. My mom too :)

On a lighter note, Matt is now in in a great preschool 3 days a week!!

Lots-a stuff....

So, I need to get in the habit of keeping my blog up to date. That way my posts will not be 18 pages long. We've kept busy this summer. Not been to Roesiger as much as I would like to go, but that will change here in August and September. Work's been going.... lots of changes. Some good, some annoying. Kids are well. Having fun and spending a lot of time with Auntie Donna and Nana, They love that :) Papa's had a few good days. He's still got his sense of humor. Scott's been working and golfing a lot. I'm glad he gets to golf because he loves it so much. Pictures always tell the story.........
Jill and Mark had another official White Trash party. Complete with a golden toilet as the trophy for the first placers in the Corn Hole tournament. I haven't uploaded all the pics, but I have a few. And as always, everybodie's version of white trash is TOTALLY different.
Matty found my flip flops for the White Trash party
Even my kids love dress up day...........
Marc will be 10 in a few months. I think we'll have a costume party for his bday....
My kids love wigs
One of the best costumes of the night
I love my Rose Bud

So, in honor of Anisa's birthday - PIRATE DAY! Dr. Bird asked me to make sure we did something cool. I said "only if you dress up...??" He said "well, I'm not coming to work dressed as a pirate or anything." And I told him that he had just picked the theme! Thanks Dr. Bird ;) Of course I was going to make sure we had something fun for my Zero. We are the official PPC after all, so I had to throw her something. Nada, Cheryl and I made it happen and the entire staff decked out!! I even did my makeup like Johnny Depp :)
The whole gang. Almost. I LOVE dress up day!
Anisa and Nada
cute but sick

I was a pretty sweet pirate
So this year we didn't get to go to Roesiger to watch the fireworks,but we had a great time anyway. Nada and Javier had us over for a great BBQ and lots of fun. The kids had a wonderful time playing in the water jumping in the trampoline and doing some small fireworks. Scott and I had a great time too. How cute are these kids?
At the end of the night. Matthew just LOVES Nada

And lastly - Marc's 1st triathlon. It was pretty cool. He had a great time and did an awesome job. My mom has been training with him so he can do a few different tri's this summer and early fall. It seems to be pretty fun for him and he loves the competition. He thought it was pretty cool that the guy from Evening Magazine said his name because he got 2nd place. Well, it was pretty cool. Proud Mama here. He looked pretty stinkin' cute too.

Matty had to help the clean up crew after the tri was over

Matty brought his bike

Has it really been a month an a half???

So, I'm not sure how it could possibly already be May 2009. Crazy, but then again, I'm still in shock that I'm in my 30's already. I have to figure out how to upload Ayla's first birthday pictures (5.11.09) and Papa's 85th birthday pictures (5.03.09), but other than that, I think I have some good stuff to blog about......

As always, life is busy and there's never a dull moment. Exciting things happening all around us. And funny stuff too. If it was not rude and probably illegal, I would post a copy of the worst resume I have ever seen in my life. Let me just say that my stomach hurt for two days from laughing so hard after I saw a fax we got at work a few days ago. Well that and when applying for a Dental Assistant position do not begin you qualifications with "I know everything there is to know about the rubber dam." Um, it's rubber and it's square......... and under "Related Experience" do not start out as a photographer for JCPenney or say you moved for Belleview Wa, to Everet Wa (Yep, spelled it that way on purpose).

So, we had to have a goodbye party for Hawk at work and we thought, hey, why not, let's go with a White Trash theme. But, we kinda had to go 80's because we are professionals you know.

Rae and Anisa.... Evil masterminds.... and me showing my true Native roots with black hair. Can't tell if I look Indian or Asian...
But first I'll start with Sisters weekend. Emily was in town for a 3 day long Extravaganza that started Friday night at Chopstix and ended Sunday afternoon at Papa's birthday party. Don't know why these uploaded so small...
Sisters :) Matty made Auntie Emmie a crown for her surprise birthday party/sisters sing karaoke for hours and go on a treasure hunt night!

As Hil put it best, Yes, there are 6 of us....
Buggy and Baby A
All of us kids for Mom and Dad

This snuck in here somehow.... but I'll leave it. My rockin' boss and I on WT day!
Mom and Bug had fun!!
Rollin' On A River
She DID have fun
The whole gang. HELLO BETHANY!
Happy Birthday Em.
Sonic Sisters 4 LIFE!
So glad to have her home
Dad, Jeremy and Bug
So, we have a new thing going on... SKATING!! We've been taking the kids every Sunday to the ice rink or the roller rink. It's been fun. I tried roller skating, and um, no...... took me 15 min. to get around the rink once - and that was with the wall. I looked like the idiot that I usually chuckle at. But it was hilarious. Marc likes roller skating much better than ice, but Matt prefers ice, so we've been doing each twice a month. Teris and the girls joined us Mother's Day, and so did Auntie Hilly! Here's a few shots!
Even though he doesn't like it as much, he still has fun and picked it up right away
Scott's first time ever
Didn't get too many shots this Easter, but I got a few
Alright Auntie Nannie!!

You would be surprised how many people asked me "Where did you find a banner that said that?" - Really?

I contemplated putting this on my blog. This here is Mary Beth.
Cheryl and her baby Janet. Cheryl says to me' "Well, white trash always wear large Hawaiian print shirts don't they?"
Many of you are wondering.... could I possibly get any more annoying at work?? Well, yes, mom, yes I can. And we will. Just wait until the 4th of July, and then Halloween and then Thanksgiving!!!! We did wear our bunny scrubs on Good Friday, but not w/out our handmade scrub caps!!

The 3 Amigos
Do I even need to say anything??

And last but not least, and MOST importantly.... Matthew's 4th birthday party. In true old school fashion - Micky D's!! The kids just love it and it's really easy on the pocket book. My little man was such a happy boy and his big brother was so gracious and loving and excited to help him celebrate. Way to go Marc!!
Ari, MJ and Darren
Maya and Darren
He got a special birthday plate.
I love you Matty
