The Graduate.... Scott

That's right little Scotty(my youngest brother) has now graduated high school, but now he is taller and bigger than the rest of the family. 4 out of 5 kids in my family have now succeeded in doing so!!

Scott and the parents.

Nate and Scott- my handsome brothers.
proof that Scott really does know girls.

Even Tori is shocked

Scott had his last band performance a week before he graduate. He is getting super good at baritone.

Scott and his friend Joey.

LOST : (

Sadly the TV series of LOST has come to an end.
Thank you LOST for the many many many hours of confusion and suspense.
I loved and hated you.
After being on TV for 6 years I had to end LOST with a proper party.
I went all out.
I served all the food in suitcases.
(what would a lost party be without dharma soda?)
Everyone became a member of the Dharma Initiative.
Brett cooked us up some nice food.
I made everyone their own boarding pass.
We all took a quiz to see how we thought it would end.
Mary won.
Gotta have a hatch centerpiece and some Dharma candy.
I also made a super cute cake but my camera deleted pictures of it.
It included the island with a crashing airplane and polar bear present.
Maybe I will be able to find a picture of it later.

Thanks to everyone who came over to my party. I sure had fun.

5th Birthday Bash

Little Miss Halle turned 5 on May 5th.
Like I blogged before her parents had to do this party big cause she was born at
5:55 on 05-05-05
Grandma got all the girls matching outfits.

I just had to show how cute Tori's hair was that day.
It was Candyland themed as you can tell.
Check out these super cute invites.

Everyone got a toothbrush as their door prize.
They needed them for sure after all the candy they ate.
Halle helped pick out her present from us.
grandpa and the girls.

This probably shows only 1/2 the kids there.

Way to go Kristin for creating such a cute party!!

p.s. Tori doesn't really like to play with other children but she sure loves her cousin Halle.
She loves following her around and saying her name at home.

200th Post- my shadow

Tori is still my little shadow and follows me everywhere around the house. She is usually in the same room I am in or in the room next to me.
Whenever I go to the bathroom she always puts her hand or foot under the door. If she has something in her hand she usually pushes it under the door as well.

Lucky 5

On 05-05-05 at 5:55pm Little Miss Halle was born.
My beautiful niece will be 5 today!
You know we have do something big today for her 5th birthday!
What a cool birthday to have.
Pictures to come soon.

She also shares a birthday with my wonderful Mother-in-law
Happy Birthday Halle and Joyce

Gadget nerd

I think Brett has gone a little too far. Look at this setup he has in his office. How many monitors do you count? I count 5! That's also not including the iPod touch and the Blackberry hanging around this room as well. Soon we will add more to this family..... an iPad.
