Hanging out in Hollywood

Macy trying out the latest fashions!

I caught Jon with Angie,
luckily she doesn't mind all the kids he has!

So I snuck off for a rendezvous with
Georgie (yes we are on nickname terms,
I'll keep my nickname secret).
Cooper was bummed there were no
ladies his age at the party


Buffy traded secrets with Buffy


Andy talked Will into letting us borrow
his jet,


so we flew to Washington to
chat with our pal Obama


Good times...

Good in the World

I am so happy to say that there is still good in this world. I am going crazy trying to get ready for out trip to Disneyland tomorrow, and on top of everything, I have sick kids again. It never fails, we would pick the week it is going to rain the whole time we are there, and we have sick kids. Even still, I am smiling, and we are going.

So on top of everything I am doing, I have to take Buffy to the doctor. I love my doctor, they are giving her Tamiflu, and wrote me 2 prescriptions for antibiotics to take with us, in case anyone else gets sick (which someone will let's be serious, this is us). She also gave me a bag full of samples of a prescription that Buffy, Cooper & Chloe need to take daily, that costs me $55 month for each of them. Macy falls asleep in the car, so I take her and Buffy home, and run back over to the pharmacy. They are out of Tamiflu, and won't get any until tomorrow late aternoon. The darling girl that works there offers to call around to find some.

She just called me, she foud one box at one location, and one box at another location. Buffy needs 2 boxes, this girl is using her lunch break to go pick them up for me, and bring them back to my CVS. I almost cried when she told me. It made my day, I was already trying to figure out how I was ging to pick kids up from school, get everyone ready for Andy's concert, finish laundry, get everything packed, make dinner, pick up prescriptions, go to the bank, etc...

I am so happy that there are still good people in the world. Kelly is going to get a special treat from me when we get back in town!

So we have our ponchos and umbrellas ready, and we are heading out tomorrow. I have decided we are going ot have fun no matter what, and the kids have adopted the same attitude. I am so proud of them! I'll post pictures when we get back. Have a great week!

Thirteen










I can't believe my baby is 13! I also can't believe what a gorgeous girl she is. In the past few weeks, I have had 4 different people from church and school come up to me, just to tell me how amazing Chloe is. 2 different ladies from YW have told me how much they love her, how good she is. How she includes everyone, she knows how to have the most fun, but also knows how to be spiritual. I was so proud to hear that. She is so amazing, and of course I know that, but to have it said to me by other people makes me think that maybe I did something right with her.

I took her out last week for some mom/daughter time. She got a makeover, and new make-up from Mac. We headed over to Nordstroms Cafe for dinner, then shopped for some more goodies. It was so fun being with her.

Things I love about my Chloe:

Her voice, if you haven't heard her sing, then you are missing out!

Her personality, there is never a dull moment when she is around!

Her strength, she knows what is right, and really tries to do it.

She is never afraid to try anything, new food, new clothes, new friends, new school. She is always up for a challenge, and she owns everything she does.

Her maturity, she gets a lot more dealt to her because of it, but she always makes it through!

Her spunk, it makes us fight a lot, but she wouldn't be Chloe without it!

There are a billion more things, but mostly I just love that she is MINE. I love that no matter how mad she makes me, and trust me, she makes me VERY MAD, and very often, I couldn't imagine my life without her and all her drama! I hope she has a fabulous birthday, and always knows how much I love her!
