LOTS HAPPENING.... of 9:45 this morning...
Cutter is no longer a kindergartner!!!

He's FREE!!!

Mrs. Khan & Cutter....LOVED HER!!!

NEXT...last night Cutter and I hit the Diamond Canyon 8th grade promotion.
My 2nd grade class was graduating!
How old does that make me feel?!

He says this is his "I love you" face.

I loved having Cutter there because this was the class that I had when I was pregnant with him. It almost felt like we had come full circle.
I mean, some of my 2nd graders have even become my babysitters!

All of these girls were at Cutter's baby shower.

Oh the memories!!!

Which now leads to a BIG memory...

After the promotion, we came home & hit the bathroom.

Cutter had a tooth that he just had to get out!

The last resort...the big pull!

Check out the new smile!

The tooth fairy came, and Cutter was happy with the 4 quarters she left.
(Whew...cuz he did tell me that she leaves 10 bucks!)

That's the happenings here!

Music in May

Last night we utilized the happenings of Anthem. After 8 years in this place, my friend Paige, finally got us to partake in an activity, that is not of the carnvial type. Music in May was the event...which is when different bands play in the park, during the month of May. Luckily, we hit it when it was old school R & B night! It was a good way to spend a Friday night in Anthem!

The kids ran amuck.

Cutter took some time to just chill.

UNTIL...he could not let go of wanting to go on the playground.
This is his uncooperative face.

Christian was crazy...thank you Stanley Family
for putting up with him!

His craziness+soda+snacks+candy+ rough housing= PUKE!

That's when we called it a night.
Hopefullly, Paige is still my friend?! :)

Tonight, Cutter had his first school program.
It was called Lemonade.

Here he is waiting patiently for the show to start.

Due to the lighting and a non fancy camera,
we couldn't get a good pic of him on stage.
(We do have video, so at least we have the memory.)

Collin giving Cutter the "great job" lift!

Even the grandmas got to come.

We also had to have the celebratory ice cream.

Good work Cutter!
You sang those songs like a pro!

Ahhhh...a Good Day!


These two...
were BFF'S today!

It all started with Christian.

We had to hit the grocery store.
During our shopping, he saw some fruit roll ups,
and says, "Mom, can I get one for me and Cutter? I want to surprise him!"

He sure can be sweet when he wants to be!

From there...

They played marbles TOGETHER.

Then TOGETHER played trains.

They even had some downtime,
and were in agreement with what to watch.

The evening even ended with Cutter sacrificing his blue otter pop, to make Christian happy.

I love me some brotherly love!!!

THE 200th POST!!!


SERIOUSLY...2oo posts??? WAHOO!!! I am still lovin it, and will soon get around to making those FAB blog books. It is more than fitting that I be the topic for such a big milestone! :) With that said, let's bring on Mother's Day was one for the books! Let me just preface this with the fact that we were supposed to be in Flagstaff, kicking it at Uncle Kane's hotel, eating Oregano's, and meeting the newest member of the Kennedy Clan. Well, that didn't happen...

So, Mother's Day started here last night,
with a mommy and boys sleepover in the family room.

Why was daddy not a part of this? So glad you asked...he was down with what he was thinking was food poisoning. We were hoping that by Sun. morning he would be doing better and we would be able to head up to Flag for the day. Well, after the morning got going, and Flagstaff was not an option, and Christian had already been in timeout twice before 9 AM, I was done with Mother's Day, and declared it "just another day". GRRRRRR....I started cleaning, and if anything, WAS getting out of the house, just to avoid any germs if Collin's food poisoning theory was really the flu. I took a shower, and decided to wash away the bad vibes, and start anew. I was a mom, and my kids are a gift. I should not take that idea for granted. I mean think of all the women out there who wish they could be moms. :( I needed to step it up! I got the kids ready and we were off...PLAN B was about to unfold.


I know it might be shocking, but we did have this place pretty much to ourselves. Also, it might seem like a silly choice, but I LOVE PPP, and I actually could just sit there and relax.


SECOND STOP: The Splash Pad

I was still trying to avoid germs, so we were avoiding home.
Plus, I think Collin was sleeping.

Cutter first born.

Christian Walker...need I say more?!

We couldn't stop here.

THIRD STOP: Swimming

My friend, Roxanne, was out of town, but said to go on over and swim!


We headed home after, and Collin was showered and feeling better. His fam stopped by on the way home from Flagstaff, and they even had gifts. (Always a good thing!) All in all, the day ended nicely. Cutter and Christian, I am blessed to have you two in my life! I L-O-V-E you!!!

Thanks for being my boys!!!

Movie with Mom

I figured I would start off Mother's Day weekend doing something fun with the boys. I've not been the most patient or dare we even say, nicest mom, so I was making this the day I would officially be forgiven. Cutter had a half day, so I decided we should hit the movies. RIO was the choice, so off we were.

Christian, please don't lick the rail.

(Trust me..he did not really lick it.)

It started with some pre-movie playtime.

Which led to an appetite.

You can't beat a FREE popcorn.

We even got our 2011 cup.

HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO!!! 3 weeks has passed and today was the day...get the cast off day!!! We were up early and out the door to get down to our dr. appt. at 8:30.

Cutter ate breakfast in the car.

We brought support.

He got a pep talk from dad.

Then the saw came out...

and then the scissors.

Getting the A OK from the dr.

ADIOS!!! I am outta here!!!

SIDENOTE: I get bonus points for my somewhat craziness of my
boys being clean boys. They seemed surprised when they said Cutter's cast was in GOOD shape for having it for 3 weeks!

Don't I know it?! I'm giving myself a pat on the back. :)

I think tonight we'll celebrate...WIPEOUT is on at 7!!!
