Max the Drugdealer

So I get a call from our school's principal this morning. Max had been caught distributing unknown substances on the playground. What the ? They describe the pills to me - soft, yellow capsules - my fish oil supplements! I had thrown them away & he had found them in the trash & being the 8-year-old that he is, thought they were cool because they had squishy stuff inside them, so he puts a few in his pocket. Then he's at recess & pulls them out to show his friends & of course they all want one, because they want to pop them or smoosh them.

The school took this VERY SERIOUSLY. I had to go pick him up at the principal's office & take him home. They wrote up a disciplinary action form & they could have marked it as a drug offense, which would mean expelled for a week & mandatory drug counseling!!!

He was all teary-eyed when I came to get him. They had made a pretty big deal about it, and I'm kind of glad they did. It made a big impression on him and the kids he gave them to. He won't be doing that again, & chances are, one day these kids will be offered something at school , from their friends, that's not a vitamin!

She used to be so sweet.....

We've called her 'sweetpea' since she was a tiny baby. And she was such a good baby.
My one and only little girl.....
growing up....

wanting to wear strange things......

But now she looks at me like this alot.
"What? You want me to help out? No comprendo."
Did I mention how much I love this baby girl?

Happy Birthday Zane!

There's no pretending here.

He really is a Jedi Master.

This kid KILLS me!!!

Zane's 6th birthday Star Wars swim party.
One day these boys will be teenagers & how hilarious will this picture be then?!!

Check out these sweet poses.
Where does he get this stuff?

This one's my favorite.

It was a complete SPAZZ-FEST!

He says that he can stop wetting the bed now that he's 6.
We've got our fingers crossed.

Office remodel

It's finally done (well, almost). And I LOVE how it turned out.
I wish I had a before picture, because it's a major improvement.
And the Wii Guitar Hero is a serious hit!
We were a little skeptical about the white couches, in a waiting room. But I SO want to take pictures on those babies!

blowing bubbles

Zane and his cousin Jolie.
We're always excited when they come into town.
One time Jolie even said as she walked in, "Hi! Aren't you excited to see me?!!"

We love cousins!

Aunt Nicole's latest photo victims.
So many boy cousins! My side has 12 boys & 2 girls!!
I'm so grateful that my kids have so many cousins nearby. I had that growing up & loved it. HUGE Easter egg hunts, Christmas parties, cousin sleep-overs...... such great childhood memories.

Would you KILL for these eyelashes!!!
I love his sweet fuzzy cheeks!

In memory of Hammy the Hamster

It's a sad day today at the Masons.

We buried our beloved Hammy under an orange tree in the backyard. We're hoping Daisy doesn't dig her up!

We all liked Hammy. Even Brian. Which says alot.

She will be missed.

That's right....

Back to school 8-11-08

Everyone was really excited to start school this year, except Zane. He's in full-day Kindergarten this year & would MUCH rather stay home with Mom and hang out.
It's tough growing up!
Max could not be more excited. He LOVES school & has a great teacher this year, Mrs. Wilson, and lots of friends in his class.
Jake is most excited for the social opportunities, and the cafeteria's popcorn chicken.

Marlee is also ready to get back to school, even though she has A-hour this semester.
I know she doesn't look excited, but she really is. I'm learning that this is a teenager thing. Always look unimpressed no matter what.
She wouldn't let me take a picture. This was all I got.

Zane is not too happy about the fact that his little buddy, Davis, is not in his class this year.He told me "there's only dumb people in my class", meaning anyone other than Davis.

Reunited.......Jake & Jacob.

I can't believe he's in 5th grade already!!
