Let the Chocolate Frenzy Begin!

O. M. G. Why didn't someone tell me not to buy the candy that I like for stuffing the easter eggs for my children? I'm so writing that on the calendar for next year. Apparently my memory failed me from last year...I do not remember being so out of control in the chocolate department! WOW. If I eat one more pastel chocolate easter egg I'm going to break out with acne like a 14 year old. Yep, pretty sure of it. And what's up with all the new flavors of jelly beans? Sweetarts, starburst, jolly rancher, etc. Not that I'm complaining, but I think we all know Jelly Bellies rule in this category hands down. I mean, who can resist a good tutti frutti jelly belly? You know - the ones that taste dead on like a piece of Juicy Fruit gum? Oh, you know you look for that one every time. Or maybe the popcorn flavored ones just so you can taste how much it REALLY does taste like in the heck do they DO that? I'm not sure but as much as I dislike the flavor of that jelly bean, I continue to try it time after time.

Anyhoo...back to the real reason I'm posting tonight, which is really just to share a few photos of Easter weekend with ya. Peace out.

They're heeeeeeeere!!!

This one is for you, Dawn.

Flower Power!!!

The day is finally here when I can start filling my calendar up with practices, games, team pictures and parties!! Wooo hoooo!!!! Some of my favorite memories growing up revolve around going to sporting events with my family. Whether it was traveling to watch Benji play baseball, or going as a family to a Royals, WSU or OSU baseball game in the summertime, I love, love, love the memories. If you grew up in Blackwell, do you remember going to DQ after a game so the coach could treat you to an ice cream cone? The parking lot (if that's what you want to call it) would be full of kids riding in the backs of pick-up trucks sweating to death waiting for ice cream or a grape push-up if you were me. Man, I am having a hankering for one of those babies right now....

Anyway, I thought I would share a few photos of Reese's soccer game last weekend. Mimi & Grandad were able to come watch and she did a great job! She saved THREE whole goals from going in...I was so proud! Considering the first time she was goalie, she just stood there with her fingers in her mouth and watched the ball go right smack into the net like there was nothing she could (or would) do about it. Oh, what a month of practice will do! Let the games begin!!!

Reese saved a goal and is throwing the ball back to her team.

Giving Daddy "knuckles" for a job well done.
