Liz and Leanna--Ames  High School

Hard to believe that our old neighbor friends are graduating this year.  It has been so much fun watching these kids grow into such amazing young people!  Seems like only yesterday they were running around the neighborhood chasing each other! Such amazing memories I have of those days together.

Travis-- Ankeny High school

Valya--Southeast Polk High School

Good Luck to all of them--I have no doubt they will all do amazing things in their lives ;-)

Jonah's 7 year old perception of his Mom

In honor of Mother's Day which is this Sunday I could not resist posting one of my favorite Mother's day gifts from Jonah.  He was in the 1st grade and made this book for me at school.

I help the family by cooking dinner

Obviously spent way too much time watching "Gilmore Girls"  on TV. 

Sat around daydreaming about Tony

And for fun who could resist shopping for groceries, I mean come on THAT is a blast! Look at me pushing that grocery cart like a pro!

Jonah does know me too well, to know that yes chocolate is 1 of my favorites and NO i do not like mushrooms!

I do like the thought of a nice, sporty convertible.

The world through a 7 year olds point of view!!  I love it-- still makes me smile all these years later!!

Wonder what gift I will recieve from my boys for Mother's Day this year?  Nothing beats those handmade gifts from my babies!!
