People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

Scrapbook page

Last week Regan and Sophie were with grandma and grandpa Joy, so it was just me and Allie here at home.  What a great week!  I got lots of cleaning and organizing done.  (which was destroyed ten minutes after they walked in the door)  I thought that Allie might get a little upset if I only had scrapbook pages of Regan and Sophie, so I worked on one for her.  I think it turned out pretty cute.

Spring break vacation

At the end of March we took a trip to Mesa to see my parents.  Allie isn't the best traveler, but we found a great way to shut her licorice!!!  She has some strong Greer blood in her:)
Allie is 4 months in these pictures.
 She won't eat baby food, but she'll go to town on black licorice.  Crazy kid:)

Grandpa Greer thought she was pretty sweet.

Jason's best friend, Brandon Cox, moved to the Phoenix area, so we had to go see them and meet their youngest three kids.  We haven't seen them for so long.  A great surprise was that we got to see Brandon's brother, Dusty and their parents.
Brandon and Holly
Dusty and Sophie 
 Regan really attached herself to Kimber.
 They had fun swimming and playing dress up.

 We had fun going to the movies, the park, and swimming.
 Yours truly:)
 My beautiful mother

 Allie and Grandpa getting to know eachother
 We also got to meet up with my best friend, the world traveler, Kim Williams Brown.  It had been a couple of years since I had seen her.  It was great!
 How ironic is it that two best friends marry boys who were mission companions in Antofagasta, Chile?!?
 Cute little Regan celebrated her 6th birthday while we were there.
 I wanted her to feel super special so I got got decorations, made a rainbow cake and got her a pinata per her request.
 The party started in the morning with opening presents.
 Then they wanted to crack open the pinata.
 I felt bad that it was only Regan and Sophie, but they seemed to have a good time.
 Later in the day we went to the movies, the park and then back at the condo, Regan made friends with some neighborhood boys and got them to do melty beads with her.  They shared in some of the cake and ice cream too.
 Sweet little munchkin
 My beautiful sister, Wendy made it down.
 Super cool dude Hunter
 David and sweet cheeks

This last picture of my dad is so funny!!  It makes me laugh.  I couldn't help posting it.  My dad really had it rough down there going to lunch and the movies every other day with his brother, Paul.
We got to see my Grandma Burnham who is 97 years old.  She is the one Allie is named for and her birthday is a couple days after Allie's.  She is the sweetest lady you'll ever meet and even made a big quilt for Allie.  I forgot my camera and only have a terrible, blurry camera phone shot.  I've been kicking myself ever since.  Well, we had a great time visiting with family and friends.

Catch-a-Cat system

Regan's baby napper security system was such a huge success that she has decided to go large scale.
What we have here folks is the Catch-a-Cat system.  For only two low payments of $29.95 you can be the lucky owner of this incredible contraption that will catch cats.  Heck I bet it would catch people too.  Installation is an additional $20 and you can't beat the kind of service you will receive.  

Regan and her assistant Sophie will personally see that it wraps clear around your house, yard, and drive-way.  And for no extra charge they will wrap it around the cul-de-sac.  Not only will it go around your light pole, but it will reach clear across the road to the street sign in case the cat in question decides to cross the street.

No cat stands a chance against the Catch-a-Cat system.
