Still working on this picture!! Anyone know of any good needlework stores in Chicago?? Im heading that way for some shopping & thought I would try to find a store or two to visit!!

Another full weekend of ball! Victoria's team struggled this weekend but Jacobs team kicked butt! They won the Cincinnati World Series! They played their little hearts out!!

What a crew!! What was I thinking? I let Jacob have some teammates over night for his birthday!! They were all very good, just VERY active!!

I took the boys down to visit with Chuck before we went to the baseball fields for ball. He showed them the entire police department (except for the weapon room, they were bummed about that!!) They all had tons of questions!!

Poor Jacob! A sign that his sleepover/birthday party was a huge success!! He slept from 4-8pm then went to bed at 10 with no problem!!

It's getting there!! I am working on it all day today except for when we "Bring It"! My husband & I have started doing the P90x workout. We are on day 12 & we have lost weight! Its killing me to eat right though! I miss my donuts!!

Jacob is 10 years old!!! I cant believe our baby is in double digits! No more kids left in single digits!! So sad! He did not want a cake this year, he wanted Hershey kiss cokies! He said " my mom makes the best kiss cookies!!" so of course, thats what he got!!
Kayla, Victoria & Karina "cousins" wearing their shirts that they made or should I say that they paint splattered all over my craft room!

The Mochanator!! Its a good thing she is so cute because she is a trouble maker!!!

Have a great week!! I cant believe its July 12 already! Summer needs to slow down!!

I am so ready to be done with this!! I have a million other projects that I want to work on! It sure would go alot faster if I was actually home to work on it!!

Mocha loves to steal Echo's bone!! She waits until Echo isn't looking then she runs up & steals it!! Apparently she thinks she deserves both bones!!

This was the first 4th of July that Chuck didnt have to work in a long time!! We really enjoyed the fireworks but we were all beat!! The kids played ball all weekend, 12 games in 3 days between the two of them!! Tired!!!!

Every 4th of July & Christmas, we have a neighborhood group of kids & parents that take the kids to two nursing homes to sing. We have been doing this for about 10 years now. The kids are all getting older but they still enjoy it once they get there. This years group is a little small, lots of families are on vacation!
