We had the rare event of having a 100 year birthday party yesterday. Something that certainly will not happen again anytime soon. It was a little different because it was 2 birthdays together that equal 100 years. Michael turned 40 today...cough, cough, man I cannot believe that is true! My step-dad Kenny turned 60 years old on April 29. So it seemed like a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the 100 years combined between them.
Grammy continues to live on with her famous cake. Even my family refers to it as "Great-Grammy Cake" after having the kids refer to it as that forever. Trevor even asked me many questions about what kind of bakery she worked in. I had to break it to him that as far as I know a bakery was not mentioned on her resume...correct me if I am wrong. Although I am very curious if anyone knows the true history of where this cake came from.
Other then that we are just on cruise control trying to finish the school year, answering lotsa questions about how long till we get to go to Disneyland and keeping very busy with Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, swim lessons and life in general.

I am always looking for another cup of coffee, frequently dream of sunny days, and on occasion I might drink too much wine. I love sarcasm and appreciate it when it is well played. After 12 years my husband still doesn't get my sense of humor. Too dry for him I guess, perhaps he just confuses it with bitchiness.
I am a thirty-something mom of 8 year old boy/girl twins and a 10 year old daughter.
I crave order but have little of it. Evidently owning books about order does not translate into actual order. Chaos seems to live in our home with us.
I work as a nurse and when I am not working I am trying to be a good Mom and Wife. Some days that is a big job!
Man that felt a little like writing a personal ad!
Megan--the oldest and if you ask her the wise old owl of the family. Watches out for her siblings and overly conservative wanting to save, save, save...not like me there!
Elise- Always on the run. A party everywhere she goes! You want fun, call her! She has two modes, on and off. When she crashes she is out!
Trevor- If any of my kids grow up to be a mad scientist it will be him! I think out of all of my kids he is the least like me, but out of all my kids he might love me the most! Maybe later we will worry about how much he loves his Mom, right now I just enjoy it.
