Friday night after we put the boys to bed we could hear Tanner crying. Stephen checked on him and left, but he continued to cry so Stephen took a flashlight this time for further investigation only to find Tanner with a huge black eye. He likes to flop down onto his pillow and we think he meant to do that and hit the headboad instead. Sad times! The next morning it was quite swollen and purple. I took this picture of him yesterday. He is starting to heal. Today it is a lovely yellow and greenish color. I think the headboard won this round.

We can't stay away from my parent's house this month. I am glad we live close enough to see them often. Rose is a senior so even though we don't live with her our life is becoming wrapped up with hers. :) Yesterday was her senior recital and so we went up to see it. She played the bassoon and the piano. It was enjoyable. I didn't take a picture of her because I had a kid in my arms the whole time, but I did take a picture of Jillian, Vance, and Tanner enjoying their refreshments after the recital was over. Fruit with yummy dip, cakeballs, and this popcorn (I don't know the name) that is really yummy.The boys really want a copy of "Rose's Cinderella" Grandpa Porter, can you help us out with that? They are really cute about it.
More Rose to come later in the week because she graduates on Friday! :)

With my baby sister, Rosemary about to graduate we are keeping ourselves busy with the big events that have been happening in her life lately. This past weekend we went over to my parents for the high school play she was in. They did Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. (I have ALWAYS loved this version). Rosemary was Cinderella. She did a Fabulous job!
|Here are the five grandkids in their t-shirts. All the shirts said "Team Cinderella" on the back. The boys shirts said "Prince in Training" and the girls said, "Princess in Training"|
|The sisters. Eric came last week and saw the play and Glen is on his mission so this is as close as we got to being all together.|
|Just after the transformation.|
|They had three stepsisters. I will quote Tanner afterr they finished their main song, "Those three girls are awesome!"|
|Have to get a picture with the prince in there too. Rose used my mom's real veil from when she got married.|
|Rosemary, Vance, and the Prince.|

We made a day trip over to my parents yesterday. The main reason was because my brother, Eric and his wife Tami were in town. It was also community days in our small town so we were able to go to the parade as well. Some of the pictures I am posting are ones that Eric took. His camera rocks and he is a better photographer than the point and shooter photographer I am.
Porter was having fun playing Pat-A-Cake with Grandma.
See the cute girl leading the band? Yep, that's my little sister. She did a great job too. They had 5th grade-through high school band kids playing.
Vance was pumped for the parade. He was counting down the days until we went.
Tanner looking awfully cute in the camp chair.
Porter did great! He enjoyed the parade and danced as the bands went passed.
Here is proof that I was there too. I do have a lovely sunburn to prove it as well.
Vance was excited to collect candy!
Tanner has a tongue fetish.
I like this picture of Vance.
Porter was so tired. In fact, he fell asleep in the stroller as we walked home. He was a good sport though.
We had a great time. I will probably post more pictures on facebook. Next weekend we will be back up to my parents. Rose's play opened this passed weekend and we are going to see it next weekend. Holly and her family will be up next weeked too. Fun, Fun, Fun!

I had a wonderful Mother's Day. I hope all of you wonderful mothers did as well. I have been blessed with a great Mother. I have also been blessed by other great mothers in my life (mother-in-law, grandmothers, sister, sister-in-law, and many more). I just realized that I spent Mother's Day with my mom, but I didn't take a picture with her. That is criminal isn't it? I did however get a picture with my boys before we sent off to my parents ward yesterday morning.
Highlights from my Mother's Day 2011:
1. Spending it with my mom
2. Talking to my brother, Glen who is on a mission
3. Spending the day with my children and husband
4. Seeing my long-time friend, Angela. She has three little girls the same ages as my boys (and she is as beautiful as ever, I might add)
4. My Dad made steaks for dinner.
5. Getting a pedicure from my younger sister.
Aside from going to my parents for Mother's Day and getting the chance to talk to my brother on the phone Stephen had a test to take. For whatever reason his IT tests he has to taken at a tech school an 1 1/2 away from us, but it's only 1/2 hour a way from my parents so he did that this morning. Now he is Security+ Certified. Way to go Stephen!
While Stephen was taking his test, my parents were at work, and Rose was at school so the boys and I went and played outside. It is a beautiful spring day! I am loving it.

|Vance had fun jumping off this "wall".|
I am very excited for what is coming in the next few weeks. My brother Eric and his wife Tami will be up here next weekend. The weekend after that my sister Holly and her family will be up here. Everyone is coming up to see my baby sister, Rose in her high school play. They are doing Cinderella and Rose is Cinderella so we will be going to that one weekend as well. Woo-hoo! Rose is also graduating soon so we will be going to that! Fun times to come.
