I love the weekends!!Busy, busy, busy times!! I decided Friday afternoon that I was going to paint the entire basement! Since we have to get new carpet I thought it would be smart to go ahead & paint now while there is no carpet on the floor! I got the first coat of paint on Friday night!
Saturday we had ball games, ball games & more ball games!! We went to my two nephews games on Saturday before Jacobs game. It is so much fun to watch them play! Ryan is a great little athlete & Lance is....just Lance! Hes such a character! He hung out with his big cousin Jacob while Ryan played!!

Sunday was a day of relaxation! ha!! We went to church then Victoria had softball practice so I ran her while Chuck cut the grass & did yard work. When I got home from softball I put the second coat of paint on the basement! I didn't think I would get it done but I did!! Chuck helped me finish it!
We finally got to grill out on our new patio!! By the time we were done with dinner, we were exhausted!!
The kids have 10 more days of school left! It should really only be 8 but we had 2 snow days that we have to make up! I will be so happy when school is out! Life seems to go smoother when we don't have to worry about homework & bed times!! I love the summer!
hope all of you had a great weekend!! Already in the 70's this morning! love it!!!!

It was a pretty quiet weekend except for the sump pump breaking during the night & our basement flooding! We have a completed basement & there was water every where! We filed a claim through our insurance so they sent a crew to start cleaning it up! I am hoping for new carpet or at least our basement painted since they said our walls are wet too!! For the amount of our deductable, I hope we get something out of it! What a pain in the butt!! I guess the good thing is, is that we didnt really lose anything to the water damage! It just smells but thats gone now too! Never a dull moment!!
I am going to have to set aside my moms picture for a litle bit!!I received an order for me to do another picture for a customer so a paying customer comes first!! It wont take me long & then I will be back to work on moms!!

Only 5 1/2 more pages to go!!!
What a great Mother's day! We went to church, went to my nieces 13th birthday party & then I got to come home & stitch! I stitched for the rest of the night!! I love it when I just get to sit!! We did end the evening with a little time around the fireplace!

Karina, our niece, & Victoria. They ran to Kohls with Chuck & of course they talked him into buying them matching shirts! He is such a sucker!!!

I didn't get much stitching done this weekend. To much ball & traveling on the highway from one sporting event to the other! I did get alot of knitting done on my sweater! I will take a picture of that soon!!

Victoria had her last volleyball tournament for this team on Saturday. We spent the day at Ohio Northern. My brother went to school there so I showed her around & told "clean" stories of when I used to visit him!!
We made treat bags for the girls & dummy me decided the night before they were to be done, how cute it would be to make the girls keychains!! I had to make 10 of them! I got them all done, never mind how late I stayed up on Friday to finish them!! Why do I do this stuff to myself!!!

Victoria went to a Junior High dance Friday. The student council put on a dance just for the kids to hang out, no girl boy dance! Thank heavens, I'm not ready for that yet!!
