This last weekend was Rusty's BIG 10 Year Reunion. For a small class of 77 people there were many familiar faces and great memories shared. Friday night we went and cheered the 0-4 Cardinals on (though they lost) and then went to the Fill in Station Bar right behind the Exxon in the metropolis of Liberty City. The cloud of smoke made it hard to enjoy so we headed to the White's house for some catching up. Saturday we went to the park and Rusty and Shane made hot dogs for everyone. That night we went to the Back Porch and enjoyed hamburgers and singing. Who knew Rusty, Shane, and Caleb were such great singers...Gangster's Paradise was the song of choice. It was quite the crowd entertainer. Shortly after midnight Saturday is when the fun began. Rusty, Paxton, and I all fell prey to a deadly virus. We were all sick on our death beds. Luckily Rusty felt well enough Sunday afternoon to drive us home. It took me a little longer to heal. Instead of feeling like I was hit by a semi , today I only feel like a small Ford Ranger truck hit me. Paxton and Mackey...they both a diarrhea, this is a time when you are sad that you have two in diapers. We are blowing through them today. That is what has been up with us lately. Lots of fun and lots of sickness.

Halloween overalls with candy corn
My favorite outfit...I love it so much I don't want Mackey to spit up on it!
Football Dress..."Go Cardinals"
Stop me!!! I am out of control. Whitey, I have fulfilled our dream of me finally learning to sew. I sat down about 4 days ago determined to beat the machine. This Thursday a couple of girlfriends came over for ME to teach them to sew. It's amazing..a couple of days worth of sewing and I am up to my ears in dresses but most importantly ideas. I can barely keep up with myself. These are three of my latest attempts. I am addicted!!! I have been staying up way too late. The last red and white dress will have "Cardinals" embroidered on it for Mackey to wear to the football games. Stop me someone I am out of control.

Cutie Pootie
Today was Paxton's first day of Mother's Day Out. I am not sure who it was harder on Paxton or his mom. He had his new backpack, his lunch, and nap sack. I was so proud of him. He did great until we got to the gate and then he cried a little. I had a lump in my throat as I left. I know that it is good for him... But I have been with him almost everyday for 2 years. I think Mackey had a hard time too! She is so used to playing with him all the time. When we got back to the house it was so quite. We missed him, but I know that he had so much fun. When I went to pick him up I had M&M's, a new Mickey Mouse movie, and a Sonic drink. Do you think he is loved??? My little baby is becoming a boy:)

My newest project...pillow top dresses. I know Becky I have a long way to go.
Friday night football. Paxton loved the sights and sounds. He even saw his babysitters in the band and got to touch their instruments.
The Gang

Paxton at the Pump It Up Junior in Plano. We went there wit ha big group of girlfriends and their children.
Mackey already hitting on Paxton's friend Brant. I am already working on arranging this marriage.
Paxton and Mackey playing together in the bounce house. He was showing her the ropes.

Rusty and I at Legacy Town Center in Frisco.
We had a big reunion with Rusty's cousins from Oklahoma who have never just had a weekend of fun. They all came down and the girls enjoyed shopping while I think the guys played a million Madden Football Games. We were actually able to get them off the PlayStation long enough to have a nice dinner.
Mackey in her ballerina photo shoot. She was not very patient.

I worked one weekend and Rusty took the kids to Liberty City for some R and R. This is the first picture with the grandparents were one child is not going nuts.
Mackey focusing on her standing.
A little Guitar Hero never hurt anyone. When Tonya and Randy come up we always have a little guitar hero loving.

We have been so busy lately...

Rusty flew to NYC this last week and went to the NY Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox Game. He sat a couple of rows back from Cameron Diaz and Amanda Peet. Lucky him! Thursday Rusty and I with the kids went to Canton and just had fun hanging out. All we bought was a wreath...!!! Lucky Rusty. Then to top of Rusty's week he went with his bosses and Danny White to the A&M vs. Montana game. Though he wasn't crazy about their performance he enjoyed meeting up with all his college friends and tailgating, he said his bosses were BLOWN away by the Aggie atmosphere.

I have been into sewing lately. A decided to make Whitey proud. I have only ventured into pillow top dresses but I have LOTS of ideas a brew'in. I have been resale shopping for winter clothes for the kids and of course seem to be doing house keeping all the time. I am waiting patiently to put out fall decorations. Somehow I feel like fall things will make me not realize the 100 degree weather.

Paxton...Good ole'Paxton. He starts Mother's Day Out this week. I will be staying close. Hopefully he will transition well. Because Paxton is Paxton he decided this

week to get the enormous bumps on the side of his neck. I watched them literally grown over night. There is something about being an RN and not being able to reason with yourself about anything that involves your family. We went to the Dr. on Wednesday and it became the longest day ever. They did a lot of blood work to rule out cancer. I held it together pretty well and then after 4 hours of waiting I became a mess. The results are in and they all looked great. I was so pleased that on Friday he had a 102 fever and so finally the verdict was that he had a virus. Hopefully the fever will be gone (I know the lymph nodes will take awhile to go down) by Tuesday for our big school day. He is talking a mile a minute and it has been so funny to see his personality coming out.

Mackey. Sweet Mackey. She concentrates so hard to stand. She can pull up like a professional but the getting down is still hard for her. She has one bottom tooth and is eating everything in sight. She is so sweet until you cross her. She has a very quick temper. She LOVES her brother and keeps hanging around him even when he pulls her and throws things at her. I cannot wait to see how our time is spent together on Tuesdays and Thursdays as we have time special time together.
