Growing up I spent a lot of time with my cousin Ricki. If she wasn't at my house all weekend, I was at hers. We knew everything about each other and could always count on each other. We were goofy and always had fun. When I think of Ricki, I smile.

It makes me feel so good to see our kids now hanging out together. Sometimes they say or do something and it reminds me so much of us at that age. Everything makes them laugh.

I really hope they have the same type of relationship we had. With every prank call, or funky song, or silly game they play, it brings back so many memories. And I love it!

We spent Easter at my parents house yesterday and the kids had so much fun! I brought my potato salad and Shelby made the green salad to join the hot dogs and hamburgers my parents had. The kids got to cook their own hot dogs over a fire, we had an egg hunt, and we got to visit with my grandma.

I know I am missing a couple of kids and a husband in there,  I promise they were there, hopefully I can steal a few pictures of them soon!

Happy Birthday Haylee!!!!

Today my daughter is 11! We went to a Mexican restaurant today for lunch and she had to wear a giant sombrero while we all sang happy birthday to her.

It is weird to think of her as 11. Soon she'll be a teenager and it feels like its happening in a matter of minutes instead of years. When she was little I used to say, who are you? She'd reply, Haylee Sue, how do you do?
She is such a giggler. Everything makes her smile and everything makes her cry. She is very tender hearted. The world is such a better place to have her in it, and we are so blessed to have her in our family.
