The Wizard

I came across this video of my son Daniel from his 6th grade play The Wizard of Oz.  He played the wizard and he was quite comical.  I tried to post it on You Tube but couldn't get it to load.  His facial expressions are hysterical.

Peeps Smore's

With the help of Pinterest, again, I came up with my version of a little gift to give to the kids at my Easter gathering this year as well as my own kids.  I found the little zip lock bags in the dollar store and filled each one with a peep chick, two graham crackers and a mini hershey chocolate bar.  Then I typed out the directions to make the little peep smore and attached it with a ribbon to the bag.  Cute, quick, gift.

Fabulous New Patio

We didn't plan on doing this this year it just kind of happened and I love it!  We had an old cement patio in the back.

This picture was taken before we moved in.  There was so much brush and over grown foliage, and you couldn't take the garbage out without getting muddy because there was no walkway.

 Here is a picture before the brick was layed.  We removed tons of trees and Rich cleaned up a lot of the overgrown brush.

Here is where the walkway will go. 

And now the finished product.  It went in fast!

We can't wait for our first BBQ.  It's so sunny and bright now!

Little Shopped out.

What a great week of entertainment from the Murphy Junior High School Drama Club.  The show closed last night.  I've posted a few videos of my star daughter on my youtube account. Once in awhile you can get a fleeting glimpse of my handsome son in the ensemble.  Check out the links to the left.  So proud of both my kids at all their hard work and dedication.  Now onto City of Angels put on by local theater Productions Over the Rainbow.  Emily will be playing Gaby in this show. Whew...I'm tired, can't imagine how the kids feel.
