I thought I would write a few things that have gone on since is life changing for us. We visited Texas in July and while there found out some interesting information about my cousins newest grandson. He asked us to call a social worker for the Chickasaw Nation about him. We found out he was currently in foster care and that the parents were having issues with following through with the judges orders to work on a program to have him returned to them, and that their rights were being terminated. The mother had lost three of her older children and they were adopted by her aunt. The father this was his first child, so the judge was giving them both a chance to see if they could make it work. The social worker informed us at this time that they were looking for a family member to be able to take the child that fit the requirements under regulations of the tribe. Well we have him now. His name is Lewis Gage Teves Poole, so here is our newest member of our family!!

Egg Sandwich

Ok, just a funny for the day. We were sitting watching Sponge Bob Square Pants, and Danny says I want an egg sandwich. (We had them for dinner last night) So I said sure, he goes into the kitchen and a couple seconds later comes back with two pieces of bread with a lump in it. I am looking at this sandwich and thinking why did he glob it all in the middle...then looking at it a little closer...why is it shaped like that...Danny let me see your sandwich...HaHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Yeah the kid put a raw egg in between two pieces of bread. Well mom it is an EGG sandwich!!

We are in TEXAS!!

Well from the last post things are still interesting. Summer is going to be SHORT this year but jam packed full of fun. We just finish Cub Scout Day camp and it was a blast. I can't thank Anna Myers enough for stepping up to the plate and helping out. Also my wonderful Husband for being so patient with me and my new JOB as it were for the last month, and then my poor kiddos. Big kudos to Erin for helping take care of Mike during day camp because he was not feeling so well. He did finally get to go the last day and be a TIGER CUB!! His biggest dream!! (As a real 7 year old now!) Yup he is officially 7! He had his requested birthday party at Aunt Alene's from January. Such a cute kid.

We are in Texas visiting everyone here. I drove out with my cousin and we made several stops along the way. We got to visit with Taryn and see her beautiful new engagement ring. YUP, that is right folks, Taryn is gettin' hitched!! Nate asked her at the end of May and the date is going to probably be May 28, 2010...Yippeeee!!! I am so excited. We then pulled into the Arney's home in Weatherford, OK and hung out by the gorgeous coy pond, Bill built. It was so peaceful. We then headed down to my other cousin's house in Ada, OK and hung out with his kids and grandchildren. (they are so cute.) And left his brother there with him to stay the week to visit. The kids and I then headed to Little Elm, TX. Yeah!!

Then on Saturday, Marcy, Tara and I headed up to Kansas, to drop Tara off at Heathers and have a Lia Sophia Party there. HOLY COW, the party was good, but the fondue that Heather put together, YUM!!! Then Marcy and I took off in the morning and headed up to Milwaukee, Wisconsin for our Lia Sophia Conference. Breakfast at Pandera's never again just ask Marcy. Anywho back to Milwaukee...OH WOW!! So much fun. Kami I owe ya big time for making sure I went, it was soo worth it. We had so much fun, pictures will follow. We headed home, stopped at Heather's for a minute and had some awesome chicken sandwiches. Laughed pretty much the entire way home, yeah so entertaining. So now we are back in Texas to enjoy the 4th, and some great times with the fam! Can't wait to update with the rest.

Oh how time flys

I did not realize that it has been THREE MONTHS since I last posted. We are just havin' way to much FUN!! Things have been really good, and can't wait for spring break this next week. We are going camping at the coastal redwoods, which happen to be the tallest redwoods, the fatest are up in sequoia national park. Updates on everything: Matt got to drive his DREAM yes he will probably be getting one soon...heaven help me!! I had a mini stroke on Feb 24th, cause by a migraine, and the doctors also think stress. It has been an interesting recovery which is still ongoing. I also started a new business LIA SOPHIA in January. Really excited about it! Jewelry is so much fun! Erin got new glasses this last week finally, and played basketball on the church team. AND holy cow is she good and has very natural talent!! Erik recieved his Arrow of Light and graduated (crossed over) for scouts, which Grandma Poole was able to be here for that thanks to my little incident. Michael is doing great in school and also recieved the Student of the Month for Tipton Elementary (which is huge)and gearing up for baseball. Totally practicing everyday!! Daniel is having so much fun in school and is excelling. He is still hooked on transformers and is a daily question of when he is going to get more. We have a new guest in our house, my cousin Scott has kinda moved in with us and helping me out with things. It is kinda funny how that all worked out. But our main project right now is a 1973 trailer that we bought from my cousin Rachels boyfriend Ken. We absolutely love it! It needed some repairs and updating so it has become quite a fun little project. Can't wait to be able to use it!! Thanks again Ken you are soooo cool! Also we are working on the house to get it ready to sell here in CA, our current project is the back patio!! Yeah!
