Ok I have a question.........
When left a comment on your blog do you respond to each comment with an e~mail, leave another comment, or do you just visit each persons blog and leave them a comment too????
OR do nothing at all?????
I am not asking to be weird......
I am asking because I am not sure what to do.
I try to go visit those blogs......
but some people e~mail me if I leave them a comment.....and I like that too!!!!!
Just checking to see what all of you think!?!??!?!?!

sChOoL rEcOrD....

On Tuesday nite we had our Melcher-Dallas Invitational track meet.
And Delaney set a meet record in the 1500 meter run(almost a mile).
With a time of 5:27.20
Last nite at the girls' track meet Delaney broke the school record in the mile.
(1500 meter run)
And guess whose record she broke!??!?!?!?!
If you guessed are right!!!!!!
Taylor had the mile record with a time of 5:23.02
And Delaney broke it with a 5:21.97
WOW.....look how much time she knocked of from Tuesday to Thursday!!!!!!
AWESOME job ladies!!!!!!
We are soooo proud of both of you for your accomplishments in track!!!!!!
{and everything you do for that matter!!!}
Good luck at you next meet.
And I will keep you all posted if we have any more broken records!!!!!!
Oh wait......I probably sound like a broken record to my family!!!!!
{I never shut up about stuff!!!}

pRoM 09......

Here are a few pictures from prom last nite.
As stressful as it was....all went well!!!!
We had to have the walk~in inside because of rain but everything worked out!!!
After prom was fun....the hypnotist was funny!!!!
Taylor went up on stage and got hypnotised......FUN!!!!!!
We finally got everything cleanup and put away and on our way home at 5:30 am..this morning!!!
WOW......I am tired now but when I got home it took me about a half an hour before I relaxed and went to when my alarm clock went off at 6:30am......needless to say I did NOT want to get out of bed!!!!!! 
But I got up washed my face {that did not wake me up!!}
brushed my teeth {that did not wake me up!!!}
so woke Troy up and we both decided we were going to skip softball this morning and had Taylor ride to softball with a friend......and we went back to bed!!!!! {we are getting way to old for those kind of late nite parties!!!!}
But we had fun being involved in the after~prom this year and hope all the kids enjoyed it all!!!
So here are a few random shots of Taylor, her friends, and a few of the decorations.
I tried to put them in a different order but blogger is not being nice to me today....or maybe I am not working quite right today!??!?!?!?!
Hope you all enjoy!!!!!!!

WeEkEnD.... here it is Saturday nite and we are at home and in for the nite by 7 p.m.
now that is one exciting life!!!!!!!
No really it is not....but it was an AWESOME day outside today in the 70's....windy but warm!!!
But this is Iowa......stick around that will change!!!!!
It is suppose to get cold and snow late tonite and tomorrow!!!!!!!!

I think I forgot to give you the update about Kale's wrestling last weekend......he lost 2 matches
on Saturday so he did not make it into the top 8 so did not get to wrestle on Sunday.
He was very disappointed.....but as a 12 year old we live in that moment and that was all that was important at that point in his life!!!!!! But nothing a little mac&cheese from Macaroni Grill wouldn't cure!!!! But we were very proud of him......this was his first year of wrestling and he made it to state.....not bad if you ask me!!!!!!

Off to play spring softball in the morning{at 9 a.m.} if it doesn't snow and rain tonite!!!!!

Went to the high school tonite to watch our high school dance teams spring show
as their fundraiser they have a clinic for the elementary kids......those little ones are so darn cute to watch!!!!!!!

Well that is our excitement so far this weekend....hope you all are having a great weekend!!!!!

Her dad thinks.....well he wanted to know when we were going to buy the rest of the dress!?!
POOR DAD........
