Champs Again!!!

Senior League...under the excellent guidance of Coach Chris....the Reds have won their second Senior league Championship in a row!

Congrats Reds....a 13-10 victory over the Giants......It was an exciting game!!

The Reds ended up 1st in the division and first in the Championship....not too shabby!...

Here's the team shot:

as well as D and P "Langing" it up...so named for 2 super cool teammates (and brothers)the Langs!

Now we are on to Summer Travel League ...and that too is off to a great start ...2 wins in a row, and last night D hit the game winning shot at the bottom of the 7th (to break a tie) into the outfield...I was a SUPER proud Mom!

Happy Father's day

Sneaking this one a little late...was sick the entire month of May and 1/2 of June and then baseball took up the rest of my free time (including Father's day) so I finally am having a minute to sit and say a very special Happy Father's day to all the Dads out there, especially to My hubby Chris for being such a great Dad to Big D (or should we just call him "Minnie me")(vintage shot circa 2005)

and to my Dad, always there for me, for us, just the best Dad I could ask for, and of course to my brother Jon, my brother in Law Scott, and all my other brother in laws celebrating today.

Then and Now- No More Braces!

April vacation 2007....Dillon was 11...and just got his braces......

3 years and almost 2 months later.......seems like forever..... we have been waiting to see the new teeth......Braces removed June 7, 2010 (also coincidentally the SAME day Dillon's Girlfriend got her Braces on..how funny)

Ta Daa! Sorry, but, being his Mom and all, I just have to say... Soooo handsome :)

Memorial Day Egg Hunt

As I mentioned a few posts ago...I have pretty much been sick the entire month of May....so when I finally felt a bit better I invited Nick and Gracie over for their long over due Egg Hunt :) and we also added in a small version of "Mothers Day Brunch"...less my famous pecan rolls and Egg Casserole, as I still am not 100 % better (but I was afraid the Easter candy was getting old) ...so we also invited Mom and Dad over for breakfast as well...It was the most spectacular weekend, and the egg hunt was a success. Nick had us laughing the week before because I told him we had to wait till Dillon wasn't working so he could hide the eggs, as now that he's a teenager that gets to be his job. Nick says "Well, He's NOT very Good at it...he hid them all over the lawn last year" (think Dillon was trying to make it easy on them, as they were 3 and 4 at the time)..so Dillon thought he'd get back at them and make it hard this year (may have been a pride thing) but I told him not to , just make them a little harder....so I had to tease Nick in a phone call this week, because we found 4 still hidden while doing yard work later in the week...when I asked Kim if he had anything to say about my teasing she said, "oh yes, Nick had a REASON for why there were some left behind...I wish she could have remembered it , because you never know what's going to come out of his mouth...Nick and Gracie continually crack me up with their funny comments :)

Here are a couple cute picks from the fun visit.....

Busy Sports Mom

I am surprised I have actually been finding the time to add a post here and there (though I think I am the ONLY one that actually reads my blog ...haha..but I do enjoy perusing the old posts, so even if it is for me, at least I am enjoying it)....anyway, I digress...this month has been VERY busy with 2 sports...its practically every day that I am grabbing the water bottles, the sports chair, the bug spray...assorted sports items, such as cleats, bats, and uniform, and running out the door....but PLEASE don't let me forget my camera!

"Big D" has really started doing well in all of his events this year, whether cross country, soccer or baseball...I think he is finally growing into his size :)

Here are a few photos from a few different games so far this year....I don't want to Jinx the teams, but have to brag a bit...soccer record is 5-1-1 and Baseball so far is 5-0...On both our teams the guys really get along and play well together...which is so awesome!!!

Happy Mothers Day!!!

Happy Mother’s Day Bouquet Glittering Comments from FLMNetwork.com

Hello to all the Mothers, Grandmothers, and great Grandmothers in our lives........Want to wish you all a very nice Mothers Day...Especially to My Mom, and My 2 Grammies and My Sister , celebrating her Second Mothers Day!!!

Unfortunately I am home sick today, so no traditional Mothers Day Brunch (which makes me feel really guilty, but honestly, I am really not up to it today)

Hope to rest and hope to make up with a belated Mothers day Brunch...and since I still have an Easter Egg Hunt pending for Nick and Gracie, who were sick on Easter....we will combine them both :)

Happy Mothers day to you too Kim!

Hope Everyone has a very Special Day.

Happy Familyversary Cloutiers!!!!!!! (formerly known as "Gotcha Day")

Wow.......Can't believe it's already been 1 year since Jenni and Scott became a family with their beautiful little boys.......

I am sure its been an exhausting year, but the happiest one of their lives....those little guys are the most adorable little boys and so smart...I am sure Jenni and Scott are LOVING every minute of every day with them. I only wish we all lived closer so we could be a part of their every day lives (and babysit once in a while for a much needed break :) )

So I just wanted to repeat my happiness for their whole family on this, their 1st "Familyversary"....We love and miss y'all!!!!

PS Hope you don't mind that I "borrowed" your pictures!
