So as I sit here thinking about our economy and how rough things are, I ponder on how I can save $,which was kinda hard since I already do that on a daily basis!! BUT there is one thing I never thought I would ever consider to just consider giving up to save money.... my daily Caffeine free diet Pepsi!! I calculated a savings of at least $142.56 a year, (that's only getting one 3 times a week) WOW!! Can I really do it?? I would be like giving up my right arm, my best friend!! If I decide to do this I am really going to need a support group!

Another Gold medal for Tyler!!

Tyler took 1st at the Missouri National Tournament today!! He put his all into it like he always does. He has a break for 3 weeks, then if he wins state he will win the Triple Crown!! Tyler is ranked # 1 in Missouri for the 45 lb weight class. We couldn't be more proud of our son. Tyler has this kind of dedication, determination, and drive in everything he does. Good job buddy, we love you.

Tyler takes home the GOLD medal!!!

Tyler got first place today in his tournament!! He won his 1st match by point, and his second by pin. He went on to the finals for 1st and 2nd place and won by point!! This was by far the match of the day! There was such a big crowd watching and people were cheering like crazy! I kept over hearing parents and coaches saying "wow, what a match!" and "this was the match to watch today" Tyler once again gave it his all. Way to go Tyler, way to go!!!

Matthew and Me

Now that Reid is back in school (ugh) I have found myself getting a little bored at night, so I have discovered taking pictures makes the time fly by! I went a little crazy with the camera tonight with me and Matt, but it was well worth it!

I love my little guy!!

I love you mom!

You are the best mom! Thank you for sitting on a train for 6 hours just to come see me! I loved spending time with you, talking all day, shopping all night, seeing movies, cleaning up countless poopy messes (thanks to Matt). Starting our diet together, playing bug bingo with the kids, getting our coke slushy and diet Pepsi! Thank you for all you do! I love you.
