thursday...

month of august started with robbie calling to say he put a little scratch on the car..."but don't tell mom"...like DUH...I WOULDN'T NOTICE!....this is the beginning of the scratch...goes back behind the tire to the bumper..he was backing into kaleigh's driveway and scraped it on her stone wall...



I received my sweet gift from ms. patti and found the perfect place to hang it!!! It is soooo beautiful in person!!! As you look at this picture the trio hanging behind it the top and bottom ones were made by paula dion and the middle one is one of patti's too!!! The sweet fairy tag living in the lower righthand corner was made by sweet Martha Brown!!! The sweet little bear is from the wonderful Vivian!!!



Before kevin left for his training for iraq last week...(he'll be gone most of august and will miss maddy's 7th birthday on the 19th...sniff...will be the third year he has missed the actual day)he went to donate blood...they said he was not eligible to donate due to him being in iraq...(as a side note...none of us can donate blood either, except for robbie, because we were all stationed in germany during the mad cow disease time and they are worried our blood is tainted...omg...just such an uneasy feeling about that...we were also there during chernobyl too...they had to do a daily air check and measured the particles of nuclear waste...yep...they found some...some days we couldn't go out...) well i digress...kevin went to give blood and they didn't allow him to give any...but they gave him some tickets to the state fair...he couldn't go since he is gone..so we went...
...kaleigh colored shannons hair...with a touch of red...(david is a redhead so it works!) here are maddy and shannon with the fair tickets moments before we went into the fair!



last nite was maddysen's last soccer game...while she loved the sport...she just loved to come and see her friends..(and do a bit hopping and dancing on the sidelines....they really didn't get into the whole rigors of the game...they didn't win any games...and last nite the score ended up 12-1...but that one score brought HUGE CHEERS FROM THE CROWD! And maddy KICKED THE BALL!!!

mute the music before you watch the videos...for the full effect!!!

Maxx was there in true form...he is such a papa's boy...papa got up to go have a smoke...(which you can't do on school grounds so he had to leave for a bit)...maxx GUARDED papa's chair while he was gone...this little girl kept coming over and trying to "touch" the chair...that would be PAPA'S CHAIR...and maxx wasn't going to let anyone else do that) at one point it sounds like he says..."where'd he go?"...and he kept calling for his papa...he shook the chair and the little girl ran away..(wonder how things would change if it was about 13 years or so from now...(i think papa would be out one chair...lol...she's a little doll!!! (her brother is in school with maddy).....lol...Maxx squealed with delight when she came back...
