also if you are reading this and you don't have my new email please send me a response.. at i am having a real hard time with my internet service.. so they would not let me keep my last email..and then it wiped out some of my addresses.. sorry about the problem.. i did get another email at just in case this happens again..

if you want any of my photos you can email me and i can send them to you with out the wording.. i don't want someone copying my photos or layouts without permission.. heard alot of people that are having problems with this.. so if you have a blog you might want to copyright yours also..

ivy is teething.. and not sleeping.. she is not doing well with the teething thing.. giving her motrin and tylenol and those teething tablets.. nothing is helping her.. she won't even sleep in your her crib.. she is just so miserable.. she will only sleep in my lap or on my shoulder..

okay two more layouts that i can show you..
one of jameson with a flower she picked it out of the yard for me the day before mothers day.. sometimes i could just squeeze her and sometimes like right now after she broke something i could well i won't say it.. she just broke my angel family that Richard and Lillian gave me for christmas.. something i really cherish.. i hope i can mend it back together..

Had to put a some sort of copyright on my photos so they won't be distrubted.. one of my friends found something from her blog onto someone elses.. so gotta put my signature on everything now..

later dawgs

Jameson graduated from School of Discovery Tuesday night.. so many of our family made it to the ceremony.. thank you all that came.. Jameson did not want to wear the cap and gown but Cole convienced her if she would wear it Grandpa would take them out for ice cream.. It worked.. so here are some photos of her graduation ceremony.. and her teacher Ms Deanne..

So happy that my bf Christy passed her RN boards.. so YEAH!!!!! she didn't think she did very good. but i knew she did..

Last week was Lillians last radioation.. so happy that all of the driving and the no energy and the no taste.. i hope all of that comes back.. i can't wait when it does..

Ivy went to the dr today and she is 15 pounds and 12 ozs.. she is normal weight and height.. she is so chunky thought she would be over but she isn't.. she is starting to grab for everything now..

and she likes to sing too.. we went to church sunday and the piano was playing and she started singing.. pretty funny sight..

Yeah for David Cook.. so happy he won.. i tried so hard to call his numbers but could not get through.. didn't think he would win.. can't wait to see what his album will be like..

Tomorrow i will probably post some layouts.. been very creative these past few weeks.. i can't sleep sometimes because i have so many ideas running through my head.. and i made it to round 3 of the gauntlet so gotta get going on my next project..

My friend Pat had this on the message board and i felt like i needed to post this on my blog too..
if you have the time sign up please..

At, you can sign up for a free kit to join the registry for these 2 weeks in May. They explain the process of donation if you were chosen to donate to a person. Danielle (his wife) has been on the registry for over 15 years and has never been called to donate. Most people are able to donate stem cells which are easily obtained by filtering the blood. This is similar to donating plasma at the blood center. They only need 5% of your stem cells for a donor, and this is replenished in 4-6 weeks. It is a much simpler process then years ago when people had to donate bone marrow. At, they further explain who is eligible to sign up and the responsibilities of signing up. Even if you do not feel you are the right person to sign up please forward this to everyone in your e mail contact list during May 5th through 19th, 2008. Or you can post this a work or church. You can help us to reach many people who might be willing to be tested.
