 Our Annual Easter Egg Hunt went off without a hitch!
The weather tried to fool us with rain all morning...
but when it came time for the hunt
it stopped!!!
On Saturday we went to the Cardinal game....
winner....10 to 4
against the Cubs!
Ballpark Village was quite impressive.
Reminded me of K.C. Power and Light District.




Great family time!

First Year this has Happened!!!!!!

Purchased this tree at least 5 yrs. ago!
Each year I am hopeful that it will bloom.
I wasn't sure I had purchased the right tree :(
It seemed to do well without blooming....
So I didn't worry.
Last year I had only one and BLOOM!
I was so proud
I took all kinds of pictures of my one bloom :)
Well..........guess what
This is how my tree looks like this year!
I had to document the blooming....so I am sharing!
How pretty are these blooms?
Happy happy me!
It doesn't take much to make my day!


Fun Week-End!

Southview Talent!



Talent is an exceptional gift that you have!  
To some it is artistic ability, to others it is musical! 
Well, with our little Peeps.....I would say that 
getting up on the stage, with all the lights and confusion 
and noise....no ear muffs, no sleeves while 
following the instructions....
was a stretch and a talent for MARGO!
No breakdown, no screaming from fear,
happy look on her face... 
telling us she was having a good time.

Her school, Southview, had their annual talent show yesterday!
All those little souls singing, dancing and playing instruments
tears your heart out.....but 
All of their faces were so proud and happy!
The teachers are unbelievable in their patience, kindness, teaching, caring, loving and more.
WHAT A GROUP!
Their dedication to our children is amazing!
So glad you are there!!!!1

'71' and Proud of It!!!!!!!!!!!


So glad to be 71 and healthy!
70 was a terrible year and I am glad to see it go.
Today is my Birthday and I am proud of it!
Although I am a little heavier than I would like...
I feel happy about my spirit, energy and enthusiasm.
I love the way 71 looks on me
and am thrilled to be here :)
Being blessed with three wonderful children
that love me very much....and continually tell me!
A hubby that is my supporter through everything and right by my side when I am not feeling so well.
Still leaving me a 'love note' every morning on the counter :)

Happy to have the talents God gave me....and Mom encouraged.
Thankful for the brains that it took to develop medicines to keep everything running smoothly.
So glad to start a NEW YEAR.
