Back from Texas!

Gosh, I shoulda posted this a month ago. It has been sitting in my drafts since May 29!!
I can't believe my baby graduated Kindergarten this year. Here he is on the last day of Kindergarten with his bff, Michael.

We went to Texas for a really quick trip over the Memorial weekend.

I finally got to hold my baby for the first time.

Here is a photo of Emmy and her mama, Rachel.

Connor loves his baby niece

My sister's baby, Savahn, is finally getting some hair and man, is she ADORABLE or what in her little Mexican dress?! Tee hee!

As promised, here is a pic of my new piano. I've always loved music, as you can see of this photo of me with my little toy piano at age 2.

Here I am many, many, many years later. Lots of things have changed in my life but my love for music will always remain the same.

About the RAK, anyone who posts on this thread will get a small token of my appreciation of our friendship. I love making cards, so you will get a little card kit put together by me!!

Happy Mother's Day!!!

Did everyone have a wonderful Mother's Day??

I had such a great day! I actually won a prize at church for being the youngest Grandma!! LOL!!

After church we all went to lunch. I ended up crying so hard on and off all day because I missed Shirley so much. I also missed Ryan's Grandma, Ruth Ann, who passed away unexpectedly exactly a week after Shirley. So those two things together left me so sad amd with a splitting headache!! Has your head hurt so bad that you felt like throwing up? Well that was me yesterday. We went to see Star Trek yesterday evening (I know, I'm a nerd) and it was FANTASTIC!!!! You should go see it! Even as sick as I was, I still enjoyed the movie.

But on a brighter note, I want to share the most recent picture of Emmy and her mom Rachel. I've only got to see Emmy in pictures because she's in Texas and I'm stuck here in Misery, umm, I meant Missouri. I can't wait to hold her for the first time!

As I said, Eric bought me a piano for Mother's Day. He also got me another hummingbird feeder for our front porch as well as some hanging baskets of flowers. I don't know where the camera card is to my Nikon, so as soon as I find it, I promise some pics of it.

ALSO, Eric bought me a piece of furniture to use as a scrap desk in my scrap room, so this motivated me to clean up what the tornado left behind in there! Hee hee....

While doing so, I came across some stuff that would make GREAT RAK prizes!!

SO stay tuned for:

1. Picture of my new piano

2. RAKS!!!!!!

My WONDERFUL husband bought me...

a new (to me!) Yamaha studio piano today for Mother's Day!!! He knows how much music is a part of my being, so he got me the piano today and we pick it up next weekend. Here is the touching part. When his mom died, she left him a bit of money left over after paying for the funeral expenses from her life insurance. So what does Eric decide to do with the money that his mom left him? He buys a piano for ME! God love him. I really don't deserve him. He is so good to me. His mom would be so pleased to know that the money went to the purchase of a piano because she loved music so much as well. I will use this piano to teach her grandson how to play.

OMGosh! I can not believe that I've posted like 3 times within the last few days! I guess I am just now feeling whole again and able to share.

I have two more weeks to go of school. My last final is on May 15th. I will be receiving my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Missouri in December (fingers crossed!). I hope I can pass my classes in order to complete my degree. So far I'm making all As and Bs. I'm a worry wart. I have to worry though so I can make sure I do well on my exams, kwim?

Thanks for letting me share. I will be posting a pic of the piano real soon!!
