I found this on Pickeled Pepper Patch blog and got such a good laugh out of it so I thought I would borrow it and share it with yall too.........Somedays you just need a good laugh!!!
NICKNAMES:~If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.~If Mike , Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-eyes.
EATING OUT:~When the bill arrives, Mike , Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.~When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators!
MONEY:~A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs..~A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale!
BATHROOMS:~A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel .~The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items!
ARGUMENTS:~A woman has the last word in any argument.~Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
FUTURE:~A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.~A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
SUCCESS:~A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.~A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
MARRIAGE:~A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.~A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.
DRESSING UP:~A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.~A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.
NATURAL:~Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.~Women somehow deteriorate during the night.
OFFSPRING:~Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.~A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY~A married man should just forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!
{this one really made me stop and laugh!}
Now wasn't that worth reading?
I hope yall have a wonderful and very safe Memorial Day!

I have been wanting to take pictures of Candace and her little growing belly for a while but she works so much so it's hard to find time when she can go but we did for a little while yesterday. Our plans were to go to Cooper but they had all the trails closed since the prison workers were cleaning up{and they really do a good job!} so we ended up at the river because Kayden fell asleep so we couldn't wander very far from the car. We are going to try again soon to get some with Kayden so I will post them when I do........
in her favorite color"Orange"
Just a few to share......hopefully she won't have Jaycie before we can get some more =)

Anyway we did end up having a very pretty afternoon for pictures ....I liked so many of them but just can't post them all so here are a lot of my favorites.....
I love this little bridge......

Happy Mother's Day......

The Teacher
Into the woman's keeping is comitted the destiny of the generations to come after us. In bringing up your children you mothers must remember that while it is essential to be loving and tender it is no less essential to be wise and firm. Foolishness and affection must not be treated as interchangeable terms; and besides training your sons and daughters in the softer and milder virtues, you must seek to give them those stern and hardy qualities which in after life they will surely need.
Some children will go wrong in spite of the best training; and some wil go right even when their surroundings are most unfortunate.... Teach boys and girls alike that they are not to look forward to lives spent in avoiding difficulites; teach them that work, for themselves and for others, is not a curse but a blessing; seek also to make them happy, to make them enjoy life, but seek also to make them face life with steadfast resolution, and to do their whole duty before God and to man. Surely she who can thus train her sons and daughters is thrice fortunate among women.
~Theodore Roosevelt~
I enjoyed reading that so much I thought I would share it with all of yall.....hope you enjoyed it!
Here are mine and Bobby's moms......Happy Mother's Day to all of you! Hope your special day is just ....Wonderful!
My Mama Bobby's Mom Yes, I know it is only Saturday and Mother's Day is not until tomorrow , but I will be gone then and didn't want to miss a Mother's day Post!

For Today......

I found this on another Blog and liked it so I thought I would try it also.....
Outside my window...
there is a pair of old stilts that either need to find a new home or wait at the curb on Monday for the trash man! I am thinking...
I have to go back to Wal-Mart and get a birthday gift for tomorrow…… I am thankful for... the opportunity to be a mother, wife and Grammy From the kitchen... I can see my birdhouses on my deck…..the birds are building their nests to start their new families…. So fun! I am wearing... Jeans and long sleeve shirt {it WAS chilly this morning and now it’s not but I’m apparently too lazy to change} I am creating/making... a bed set for Kayden’s new Cars bed that is in his new home, which kinda makes me a little sad because now I won’t get to see him in the mornings before work{but I am very happy for Candace…. she has waited for a long time and now she has her own place }

I am going... to see my Mama tomorrow for Mother’s Day after morning service… I am reading... Wanda E. Brunstetter’s “ A Sister’s Hope” {almost done} I am hoping... that we have beautiful weather for Monday’s pictures with Jessica and her boys. I am hearing... the very quiet hum of my computer and the refrigerator…..

Around the house...

there is a lot of decluttering to do…… One of my favorite things... Colorado {of course!}

{church at Allenspark Colorado} A few plans for the rest of the week: back to work on Monday{13 days left!} , Bree’s first summer league softball game on Thursday…. Here is picture thought I am sharing...

Almost forgot.......

I almost forgot about posting this lil guy......I took his pictures several weeks back and have been so busy/sick/tired {mostly busy} that I haven't posted them.... But here he is and he is ADORABLE !!!!!!!
My summer goal is to get organized{I would say better organized but somehow I have lost my organizational skills here lately so I'm not even that organized at all lately} and to post quicker!!
We'll see how that goes...........
