WOW! It has been a while sense I have done this blogging thing, but this is definitely worth a come back. Our little family just wanted to tell all of our Mom's THANK YOU!... for all that they have done for us. We wish them a VARY Happy Mothers Day. We Love You.

I am also so grateful for my little MAX. He is the light of my life, and just so much fun. I am so grateful that he is who he is. I wouldn't have it any other way.
Happy Mothers Day to all of you cute mommies(and future mommies) in my life. I get to watch while you raise your kiddo's(or help raise mine). You are an awesome example to me, and I am definitely taking notes! :*)XOXO Staci
To my Super Mom
Mom, you're a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel I belong.

You're patient when I'm foolish;
You give guidance when I ask;
It seems you can do most anything;
You're the master of every task.

You're a dependable source of comfort;
You're my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble;
You support me whenever I call.

I love you more than you know;
You have my total respect.
If I had my choice of mothers,
You'd be the one I'd select!

Wierd job request at WSU

It's been a while since I last posted. I just had an odd experience and though, "Hey! I should blog this!" So now all you lucky people get to share. Lucky you.

So, I had been talking with someone in the computer lab on campus and I turned around to leave. Blam. There was an old guy in suit standing right behind me. Staring at me. I stepped back and looked for a way around him, but he was pretty large and had me trapped. Maybe he just didn't realize I was there....

Me: "Uh... hi."
Him: "Hi."

Pause. Okay, he definitely knew I was there after that. I stood wondering if he could sense the uncomfortable silence too.

Me: "Can I help you?"
Him: "I want a job."

He shoves a resume printed on periwinkle blue card stock into my hands. I notice that his job experience for the last five years consists of "yard work and partnership and odd jobs." At the bottom of the paper was a handwritten scrawl "see back" or maybe it was "sec rqcvl".

I turn the paper over. Ah! His education experience! It appears that he went to "Weber State College English before U of U Partial paid before Weber State University" and he majored in Information Systems with a "near minor in Math." Oh, and "a good Dad and great Mom taught me well and more computer classes."

Me: "Well, um... I don't know what I'm going to do with this. Why don't you take it upstairs to the career fair."
Him: "Yes. I'm going up there next."
Me: "Good, why don't you take this with you? It's not going to do me any good."
Him: "No, keep it. Give to a professor if they need to hire someone."

As he walked off, I suddenly realized what I could do with this resume... I could share it with you! I'll finish with a few more gems taken from this periwinkle blue resume:

"BS degree from Weber State enough cost but quick learner and trying to keep current."
"Can Speak Mandarin Chinese, good education."
"Installed Word and Excel."
"Maintained apartments fixed."
"1992 to 2002 Worked for several employers."

And last but not least:

"Recycles and cares about people."

Terrace Days Parade

We headed down to watch the Terrace Days parade with Grandma Shirlene and set up next to the announcer at the start of the parade. I think it was just some guy that lived on the street, but he did a good job. The volume was little low--which was fine for those of us sitting in front of the speakers--but you could barely hear him from across the street.

It rained a bit when we first got there, but it cleared up.

"Hey, Dad! Are you watching this?"

Here's Papa Breon!

He looks different... last year he looked liked this guy...

"Ah, man! I'll I got was handfuls of Tootsie Rolls!"

"Yay! Non-Tootsie Rolls!"

Actually, Max walked away with a bag full of candy, most of it of the non-Tootsie Roll variety. It didn't take him long to figure out how to play the game. He would give a fake smile, wave and say "Hi!" Paraders couldn't resist throwing candy at him. It also helped that we were at the start of the parade before the candy reserves started to diminish. It was a really nice day, the perfect temperature, the rain stayed away, and it was cloudy so the sun didn't shine in our eyes. And Max really enjoyed how much candy he got!
