Say goodbye to the long lovely locks River once sported here in this pic with attitude. His mom is cheap and took him to great clips for a trim and ended up looking like Dora the Explorer. Needless to say the only remedy was to chop all the lovely locks off and start all over. River was devastated because chicks totally digged his hair. River's neck problems have been resolved since he no longer whips his head back to get the hair out of his eyes 500 times a day. Unfortunately I did not get a pic of River looking like Dora because he was very embarrased of how his hair looked and i couldn't bear to torture him further.




So, I finally downloaded my pics from my camera to my computer and realized i'd missed alot of things to put on my blog. Here are some pics from the pumpkin patch/corn maze with Spence and Cass and family.

Happy Mothers day to my mom, who is half way around the world, but hopefully sees this small tribute to her.
My mom has always been there for me and I am missing spending the day with her on this special occasion. She is one of the strongest people I know. She has helped me through life, through the good and bad. My mother is one of the most beautiful and fashionable mothers I've ever seen, which sometimes makes me jealous but always proud. She is soo loving and patient with all her grandkids, they all love to be with their Grandma Sher.
So, thank you mom, for everything that you do!! Come home soon and safe!!

So, I decided there isn't enough blogging going on about bowling. So here is River, Sebastian and I bowling. And yes, River is back to pulling stupid looking faces in pictures. And no your eyes do not decieve you, those are sexy hot green, yellow and pink neon bowling shoes. Btw, this was the first and probably last time I scored over 100 while bowling. Thanks for the fun outing Seabass, sorry I jinxed your bowling game!

Rarely do I take a picture of my son where he is not pulling some weird face sticking his tonuge out or where he looks like he rides the short bus to school. I was very surprised to see this one pop up on my camera and thought to myself I need to share this one with everyone. See he can take a cute pic!!!

Happy B-day to River's girlfriend/aunt Carly!! Hope your having a great adventure...... we missed you both yesterday and today!


River has gotten baptised!!! Yesterday February 23, his grandpa baptised him and today February 24, he confirmed him in Sacrament meeting. River was taught the lessons by Elder Laughlin from North Carolina and Elder Arrowsmith from Mesa Arizona. River has been taking the Missionary discussions for more than a month and accepted to be Baptised. During the each lesson River sat as patiently as he could and listened to the lessons while cracking jokes to keep the mood light. River was very excited to have sooo much attention and to be dunked in the water.

At Rivers baptism, Cassie gave the opening prayer, Sebastian gave an excellent talk on Baptism, Spence also gave an excellent talk on the Holy Ghost, Nichole gave the closing prayer, and Grandma Sher led the music. We were delighted to have so many of the ward members come and support River, they have been really great to us during this process. River and I would like to thank everyone for coming and sharing this special experience with us, it was amazing for both River and I.

Our amazing family dog of more than 16 years passed away on Feb 18, 2008. We got Jazzy when I was 16 years old, which still feels like yesterday. Jasmine used to go from bed to bed in the morning til the last person was out of bed and she had no option but to finally get up. She was dads shadow for years and would follow him

Jasmine was the pet that finally stuck. Not the ducks, rats, gerbils, snakes, cats, or other dogs, our Jasmine. And even though she got old and stinky and lumpy we loved her still.
River says that she is now in the big dog house in the sky, waiting for us.
We love you Jasmine!!!!

Today River restarted his tennis lessons. He will have a few private lessons with Brad to get his techniques back before they stick him in a group lesson. River being the clown that he is kept hitting the ball really hard and really high and yelling "HOMERUN". Brad was not amused. Pics to come at next weeks lessons.

So, my mom is turning into one of those weird dog ladies who has to take their dogs everywhere with them. She doesn't like to leave Skyy in the kennel all day so she lugs this 60 pound dog around with her like it's a lap dog. Anyways, mom comes to pick me up for my birthday shopping and dinner and has her dog in the back seat. I ask mom if she wanted to leave her dog at my house while we were out, but she insisted that the dog was fine in the car. So we went shopping and then met dad to go out to dinner. After dinner we come out of the restaurant to a surprise. Skyy has pooped diarrhea all over the back seat. Apparently it was a dairy day that didn't sit well, or maybe the 10 hours riding in the back seat of the Kia that did it. Anyways it was another crappy birthday.
