I cannot believe what a busy month May has been.
The first big event we had was Mother's Day. I hosted the party at my house and had 11 people here! That is the biggest crowd I've ever had at one time. It was wonderful! I made muenster chicken, green bean bundles, crunchy cole slaw, twice-baked potatoes, and a cheeseball! Woo!!! Tim made bread and Nick's sister did dessert. All the food ended up being ready at the exact same time (so very hard to do and never happened to me before!) and it all tasted great. Besides burning the crunchies for the cole slaw twice, it went off without a glitch!
Just for your viewing entertainment, here is a pic of my mom, sis and me.
And here's one of Nick's mom, his brother, his sister, and him.
We had a wonderful time. The very next day was Tim's birthday and Nick's Uncle Steve's birthday, so they opened presents at my house, too.
The next big event we had was the last day of school! I had a tough year with a couple of my boys, but for the most part, I loved my class and I'm going to miss them! Especially, these two. Brooklyn and Brady! They are my favorites. These pictures were taken at the beginnig of the year and they've changed so much, but crazy me, I didn't take any others!
The next event was Mallory's graduation. I'm so proud of her! She had a tough year, but she pulled through and has turned into a wonderful young mother. She's also going to OU next year, so I could't be more happy for her. I don't have any pictures from this event, but I know there are some on Facebook. Click here for Megan's facebook album.
The very next day, we had a surprise party for my mom's 50th birthday! It was at Charleston's at 2p on Saturday. Nick was playing golf that day, Cassie and Cal had a wedding in Tulsa that day, so I went to Tulsa with Mom and Tim. She had no idea why! We went early, because I thought Nick would be done golfing early and we could meet up with him, and he and I could go to the mall to pick up her present. Well, he wasn't done early. In fact, he was barely done by 1:30p! He had to run to the mall by himself and Tim and I just had to keep stalling Mom. She was hungry and she couldn't figure out why Tim wanted to wait until about 2:15p to eat! It was so hard. We spent many long hours in Target, Lowe's, and Bass Pro. When we finally got there, though, they had a huge table set up for us and Grandpa Dennis, Uncle Les and Aunt Terri, Rachel and Sean, Aunt Marian, Emily and Harper, and Becky, Dustin and Chloe were all waiting on us! Oh, and of course Nick, Cassie and Callen:) She cried and was so surprised! It was wonderful!!!
The next day was her and my dad's anniversary. It would've been 30 years! Crazy to think about.
Our next big event is Memorial Day weekend! It's looking like it's going to be a crazy, fun holiday! It's Nick's mom's family reunion barbecue hosted at her house and I think my parents and Cassie are going to come. It should be really fun and I promise I'll take my camera and post lots of pics!!!
