Part 1

Chad's vacation started on Friday it's plants shut down so he's off until July 6th. So these past three days have been filled with a lot of time with family and friends. We have been out on the lake the past 2 days and it's been wonderful. Here's how the past few days have went.

June 26th



We went over to John's house to celebrate his birthday with a cook out and tons of swimming in his pool. The girls had a blast. Miss Chastity has no FEAR at all she was jumping off the sides and wanting to swim in the deep in. She didn't want anyone to hold onto her. But once you'd let go she'd get water in her mouth but she didn't even mind that at all. Miss Alyssa on the other hand was a little more on taking it easy and hanging out by the stairs. But once it comes to the lake she'll go all the way out to where the water is almost to her head.

I nannied at the lake Friday night. So Chad had the girls so he took them out to dinner and a movie.

June 27th

We went up to my moms to celebrate her birthday with her. Then the girls stayed with her for a couple of hours and I went SHOPPING with Lisa. It was so nice to buy new clothes and not have the girls with me. Then I got the girls came home and had some friends over for a cook out, swimming, fishing, bonfire, snores (aka s'mores, and boat rides on the lake. The girls didn't get to bed till about 10:30 pm which is way late at our house. Chad and I made it bed about 3:00am.

June 28th

I made the family a wonderful breakfast. Of course the girls were up at 7:00am and ready to go. I was a little sleepy still but love to be woke up to my little girls. They both came into Chad's and I's room together and woke me up by blowing in my face, but it was sweet. About noon time we headed out to the lake so the girls could swim, it was really windy but it was still a great day to be by the lake. Had some friends down for more swimming, fishing, cook out, bonfire, snores, and boat rides. The girls didn't make to bed until 11:00pm. They were both so dirty and needed baths. Because they both were helping dig for worms. Alyssa was begging me to wait till the morning to give her a bath she was so tired. Chastity took a nap but Alyssa didn't. They both were asleep in no time. Chad and I made to bed about 2:00am a little earlier then yesterday.

I'm going to post in three's so here's highlight part 1.

Relay for Life

On June 13th we did Relay for Life in Rushville. My sister Kim got our team together, and it was in memory of Alison. We had a lot of fun and had a great turn out. We miss some of the family and friends that couldn't make it. But thanks again too those that made a donation in Alison's memory. We all plan on doing Relay every year in Ali's memory, so I hope that you all will want to be a part of it.
My sister Kim and niece Christine are a part of the Luminaries. So I spent a big part of my day helping with that. Which is something that was hard but also it felt so good being able to make the luminaries bags in someones memory. The girls also made their own bag for Auntie Ali. They both were so good, I was glad that it wasn't too hot of a day out because it really help. Once it was time to go home neither of them wanted to leave. I hope that in a few years we can camp out for the whole night. It feels wonderful that I have two little girls that love being a part of something that means so much too me. And in time will know the real meaning of why we do Relay for Life. I will add the pictures to my slide show.
On the way home we stop by Ali's grave. It was the first time I had been there since August. Her plot has been there for a couple of months now. I'm not really for sure why I waited so long to go? My sister Kim had a flower arrangement made and it's beautiful. I held myself together, part of the reason was the girls were both still awake and I didn't want to upset them. Alyssa is so smart about all of this and also very curious. She tells me that she can't wait to go to Heaven to see Auntie Ali. And then she'll ask "Mommy do you want to go to Heaven and see Ali?" And I tell her..... "yes I can't wait."

Jenny Eash

Chad got a phone call yesterday from his Dad that said his step-mom Jenny had just past away. We had just saw her last weekend when we all went out for breakfast. It was a normal Sunday thing that we've been doing for a couple of years now. We didn't go this Sunday because the girls and I had been out of town for Relay For Life. The girls always have a great time. And at their last visit they both were loving all over Grandma Jenny and Grandpa Eash. But none of us knew it would be the last time we saw her. Jenny has been sick for awhile now, she got MRSA last winter. Things have never been quite right, but none of the doctor could really pin point what was going on with her. She was just tired and weak a lot.
We love you Jenny, we are all going to miss you. Thank you for coming into our lives and making a difference.

Cutie Pies

I did a little photo shoot with the girls last Sunday. So I thought that I'd share some of my favorite ones with you. Thanks again Heather for the cute dresses. They both love them.
