So,next school year (in the Fall) I'll be the Vice Pres on the PTA board. I wasn't up for the President position, but I thought I could learn from Christina and maybe consider it in a year or 2! Hopefully things will go well. I've helped a lot with functions, fundraisers, picture day, Box tops/ rootbeer float parties etc... but this will be more of a commintment!

Ive been making the bunny cake for a million years, but Angie & I started doing it together years ago. For some reason, Easter kind of snuck up on us this year and we had to make them without the big kids this time (HUGE mistake!) We had fun with the little ones, but neither side were very happy with us!

My Mama always wanted to see Oprah when she was doing her show, but it never worked out. I dreamed of getting tickets for her, but sadly, all I could do was buy her magazine subscription for Christmas each year. My brother Jesse just bought tickets before they were released to the public and Mom invited me to go with her when she comes to Seattle in November! Wayhoo! Her tour- The life you want will be there the 7th & 8th, which means I get to fly home, spend a night in a hotel with Mom, see Oprah and other key note speakers for 2 days and then fly home! I get a vacation by myself! I'm thrilled Mom picked me to be her partner in crime and I'm glad I have 7 months to save for this fun event! Thanks Jesse & MOm, I can't wait!

I only had a few weeks to plan anything for moms party. In that time I was able to make & send out an invite, gather 60 letters from family & friends, make a few Queen decorations & party favors, gather pictures for 3 posters, order/fax a cake over to Washington, get time off work, pull the kids out of school a day, pack and drive over to make it for the big event! Mom loved her present and I am SO grateful for those who took the time to make that gift happen. There was a lot of emailing, texting, calling and bugging people to get them done, but we did it and it turned out great!Besides her 6 cans of hairspray- that's my favorite gift I think I've ever given her. I love you Mom. (There's a ton more pictures, scroll to older posts to see them!)
