It's a a party, It's a party...AGAIN.

So, Macy was invited to a costume party by her friend, Aaliya. The invitation was hand wrote on an index card. Macy told me she lived on the island and I was just to "look for the signs" to get to her house. So I called the phone listed and spoke with her mom to get a better idea of where they lived. The island bridge is out so we had to drive the very long way to get to the island so I wanted to have a very good idea of where the party was. So, we worked very hard on her Mad doctor look. We spent about 45 minutes on the hair. Used a full can of hair color, and a bunch of makeup. I took countless pictures to the point of photographic frustration on the part of the model. Then off we went. The traffic was horrible on the way out. It took forever. We finally found the road and set off to find the "signs". They didn't exist. So we checked for the house number on the invitation...it wasn't there. I called the Mom's phone number and got no answer. we drove up and down the road for 15 minutes. I called and called. Macy was getting sadder and sadder as we drove up and down. I tried calling one last time before turning tail and finally got an answer. I was glad to hear her voice. I explained the invitation snafu, and told her of our countless times up and down the road and then pleaded to her to tell me their house number.

Then it came...She said in a saddened voice...
"I am sorry but the party is TOMORROW"

Needless to say we all felt, stupid, humiliated, tired and my car had a lot less gas in it.
So we tried it all over again on Sunday. Macy looked great on both days. She had a great time and we both learned a real good lesson.

love my phone, love my Tommy

well I introduced my nephew Tommy to my new i-phone. It was like putting a fish in water! I really didnt even need to show him much. He picked it up very fast. Before I knew it, he had killed my score bowling. He even showed his Grandma nancy how to play. I did ask him if he loved me for my phone or did he love me because I was Aunt Janet, he stopped playing, looked at me and in his little cute voice said "I love you because your Aunt Janet"

Gotta love this kid!

At seasons end

I went to my nephew Michaels last football game this saturday. One of the team members was unable to be at practise the day they got their team photo taken. Michael Shoemaker is a great kid. It was my honor to take his picture. It will allow him many great memories of running the field, tackling the other team and getting great treats to eat after the game.
Go Wildcats!

my new i-phone

I love my new i-phone my husband got me for my birthday. I love all the fun applications you can get too. These pictures were taken with the HI CON application. It takes high contrast black and white photos. I love it!

Macy and Maroon 5

I took macy to her first concert tonight. We saw a local band called Augustana (they are very good), MAROON 5 (we LOVE them) and Counting Crows (sadly we dont know too much of their music). We had a great time and M5 was fabulous!
