Pinewood Derby... Need I say more

After alot of blood and sweat we finally had our Scouts Pinewood Derby!! Cam has been looking forward to this day since, I think, Crea was born!

You know there is a science to building these cars and you have to handle them with care! I don't know how many times crea was lectured on the correct way to hold and walk with your car!

All the hard work paid off- Crea got 2nd in his pack- of about 9 boys! The little boy who got 1st also took the overall time in the entire race...

It was a great night! It is always fun though to have a family night where all we do is cheer one of

us on! I think it is a great way to get closer.

The pictures are of Crea getting ready for the race; The 1st place finish photo; him with car and certificates; the infamous "Silver Bullet"!!

Reba or Bust

Here is a picture of my and my handsome date!! The monkey and me went to the Reba and Kelly Clarkson concert for Monkey's birthday in October.. I know I am a little late... We had such a great time!! That is all he wanted for his birthday, which wasn't a big shock since he has been in love with Reba since he was 4! We went to Burger King before and then to the concert and got home at about 11:30- on a school night.. ooohhh! But I have to tell you it was a very special night with just me and my boy. While we were at BK a young dad came over to me and said "I just had to had to tell you, that you just don't see boys this age that are as polite and look as well dressed as your son does." Ahh what a proud mom moment. It makes you think for just one second that you might actually be doing something right!! Needless to say I was very proud and felt very luck to be Monkey's mom!
Oh and I just this picture of Reba (out of the 75 Monkey took- big mistake giving him free reign of the camera!) because this was one of his favorite parts of the concert- he thought it was so neat that Reba teared up because of the audiences reaction to a song! I admit it was neat though!

See.... They can get along

My kids are good kids who truly love each other... this is what I tell myself over and over when I hear them screaming at each other. It is moments like this when I actually believe it!!
