Sunday, June 18


So, we just went to the drive-in with Kelly & Jack and saw Cars and then following that we say X-Men 3. It started to rain when we first got there, but cleared up by the time the first movie started.

Cars was really cute! If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. You were right Amy, Larry The Cable Guy does totally steal the show! He was hillarious.

Now, I'm not normally a sequials fan, and I know that I really liked X-Men 2 when it came out, so I wasn't expecting much for X-Men 3. I do have to say that I did enjoy it very much! I would recommend this one too.

I love going to the drive-in and here is why:
- You get to bring all the snacks & drinks you want.
- You get to see 2 movies for less than the price of one in a normal theatre.
- You have more privacy, so if you are with someone that likes to talk through movies, you are not really disturbing anyone around you.
- They are usually later on in the evening and you get to wear you PJ's.

It's a really fun time!

Hair Cut Photo

Here's a recent picture of my hair cut. Kelly & I were playing around with my Mom's camera and this is one of the pictures we took. Just thought I would post it so you could see what it looks like.

Jackster... The Laundry Police!!

I'm trying to do laundry, and Jackie is taking over! She won't let me do one load of laundry or fold it by myself. I just folded 3 shirts and was going to put them away, when she went refolded them, and put them away before I could do it. If the dryer goes off, she is standing at the door waiting. She when I go to get the laundry out, she is staring at me like I don't know what I am doing.

It's very funny!!

Bought A House!!

So... we finalized the paperwork today and bought a house! It's in Plainfield, IL (yes, where they have all the tornadoes) and is really starting to grow (the town that is). It's a two story home, with a family room, kitchen, dining room, den and three bedrooms. It's brand new, which is nice because it's a blank slate that we can do anything to. Steve was hoping for something he could fix up (he has been really wanting to do this), but this was just too good to pass up. I feel a little bad for him, because I think the home projects would be really fun to do together, and he was hoping to learn how to do them.

Let me know anytime you would like to come and stay, you are more than welcome!!! I would love it if you could come!!! :)

Here's a picture of the outside.

I haven't had a chance to take a photo yet, but here is how my hair now looks. It's kinda short, really cute & super duper easy to do! I love it!!!

I was able to stay away from my Mom for over 2 weeks, but she got ahold of me today ;0) It was really fun! Ha, ha, thanks so much Mom for doing my hair today!!!

Graduations!! Here are the pictures you have been asking about from last weekend.

Jackie's Graduation!!!
Was on Saturday at her high school. It was a very awesome morning, becuase it was cloudy and cool. Here are the pics.

Nika graduated on Sunday, her ceremony was at the high school as well and was in the middle of the afternoon. It was a beautiful sunny/hot day, and I nearly died ;0) I don't know how the seniors did it in those hot gowns. It was about 98 degrees and very humid. Here are her photos.

Throwing of the hats.
