"How to" by Auntie Megs

How to entertain young children at Wal-Mart:
1 - Bring along Auntie Megs
2 - Auntie Megs finds a bench
3 - "crazy" pictures via camera phone
4 - Mom shops happily and peacefully

How to enjoy dinner at a restaurant:
1 - Choose an "it's okay to be loud/bring kids" restaurant

2 - Bring along Auntie Megs
3 - Seat all kids by Auntie Megs
3 - "crazy" pictures via camera phone
4 - rest of family dines happily and in oblivion

Thankfully, he doesn't know how to make scary faces. Yet.

(other than the birth of my newphew...)

SONIC is FINALLY coming to the northeast. I can hardly believe it myself and I'm dizzy just from the thought of grilled cheeses and vanilla diet cokes WHEN.EVER.I.WANT.

Yay! Yay! Yay!

Mom and Dad and all the others that pick me up from the airport - No, this does not excuse you from making a bee line to Sonic as soon as me and my luggage are in the vehicle.

Happy Anniversary!

On June 12, 1971, Karen Lyn Mutschink and Steven Bland Toone said "I do" in a little rock church in Art, Texas.

Thirty-eight years later, they are still going strong. I am blessed to have a kind-hearted Mother and a strong and loving Father who not only compliment each other, but always work as a team. They raised us to be kind, work hard, know right from wrong, value family, to always have fun and most importantly, to love. They have set a wonderful example for their children as to what a marriage should be. I am a lucky daughter.

Happy 38th Anniversary, Mom and Dad!

It's mid June and 57 degrees. I just don't get it.

I haven't even turned the AC on since I turned if off last September!

This is NOT summer!
