Taylor did a little photo shoot of Makena this weekend and
I absolutely loved this picture!!!
I just wished she matched...DANGIT!!!

The Candy MAN!!

Who can make the sun rise?
Blah Blah Blah....
The candy man can!!!
(However that song goes)
Those of you who know me, know I absolutely
despise that show (Willy Wonka).
It gives me nightmares. Ethan and Tanner decided
to open a restaurant this summer. I suggested a candy shop. It would
be a lot less work. They made quite a haul on their first day, and
hired a few employees. As you can see here, Elsie finagled her way in
with collecting the money. Others were hired to ride around the
neighborhood to advertise. All in all they did quite well,
the little Entrepeneurs!!

A slap in the face!!

I was laying down taking a little nap today (Sunday) and the comercial
with Sally Fields for Boniva comes on? I suppose it is an advertisement
for bone loss or something. Well, Hannah in her sweet little voice comes
over to me, puts her hands on my face and said,
"You need that, your getting OLD!" I guess at age 33 I am getting old.
I have never really thought of myself as an old person. How depressing!!!

Hannah has been either neg. or a trace on her urine testing
for almost 3 weeks so we decided IT'S PARTY TIME!!!!
It looks like her kidneys are doing what they are supposed to!!!
We have been SO blessed!!! Thank you all for you prayers and
support for Hannah. We love you all!!! SOOO.....
let's party!!!
We are thinking Friday, June 27th from 6:00 to whenever
we decide to quit!!!!
We are going to swim, eat, & just have some FUN!!!
It will be a Grandma & Grandpa Hancocks house.
If you want to come & PLEASE DO... all I ask is that you bring some
kind of salad or chips & we'll provide the rest!!!!
ALSO...for Aunt Jeanette's sake we are trying to track down a
chocolate fountain!! (That's the only way she would come!! j/k)
So if you know of anyone that has one, let us know!!!!!
Please let me know if you'll be coming so we can plan the food & festivities!!!!

7th Grade Here I come!!!!!!

Kam, Stephanie, McKayla, & Taylor

Taylor graduated from the 6th grade today!!!!!
May 29th, 2008. I can't believe how the years have
flown by. She has turned into a beautiful young
woman (yikes) right before our eyes!!! Sitting here typing this,
I remember vividly the moment she was born. Laying
in the hospital bed telling Dan, "I can't do this, I want to go home!"
Then finding out there was no time for an epidural!!!!
Then minutes later, she was here!!! My most amazing accomplishment!!!
Now, almost 12 years later she's going into junior high, on a cheer team, and has the
most amazing friends a mom could ask for!!!! I am SO proud of you Tay and
I love you very much!!!!!
