This is how we spent last night.
At Tim's 8th grade graduation.
Really? How can I have a son that will be a freshman next fall?
I mean, it was only yesterday that I myself graduated high school.
Sure, 20 years this month it was.
For the love of God, wasn't it the other day that I was using Rave hairspray on my Jersey girl large hair & putting on my electric blue eyeliner with pink eyeshadow, clear mascara & no blush.
Sounds pretty doesn't it?
Oh it was!

Anywho, here is the graduate with his daddy.

Here is the graduate with his actual mom, Alison.

And here is the graduate with his dad & Shamu. Looks like I swallowed a small country doesn't it. Not the most flattering pic of me BUT I don't have anywith this child so I am keeping it. Maybe I can work some magic in Photoshop!

So congrats Timmy.
It's high school now!
Woo hoo!

Woops out!



Congrats!!!! Meghan I love that photo of you!! We see so few photos of you I love it!!


Clear mascara. Bwahahahaha!!!!


Congrats Meghan, Bobby, and Timmy! 2 more years and I will where you are! lol

Love the picture of you 3!

Awesome Abby

You do NOT look like Shamu, or a small country. Get a grip, woman! You look BEAUTIFUL! Here's the bottom line....remember my whole heart escapade? I decided while I was laying in the hospital that I would start taking/keeping/publishing photos of myself because no matter what i looked like in my mind, I was still my babies' mommy...and they loved me NO MATTER WHAT. To them, I am beautiful NO MATTER WHAT...because I am their mom, I am me, and I am beautiful the way I am. I've told my own mother that 100's of times, and I thought I should practice what I preach, since I thought if I died while I was there, my kids wouldn't have many photos to remember me by. Now, you see an overabundance of them, but that is the psychology behind them. SO TAKE THOSE PHOTOS AND BE PROUD OF THEM BECAUSE YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL JUST THE WAY YOU ARE!!! Off my soapbox and on to bed. LOVE YOU, SISTER!
