Michael's dream is to have a large patio in our backyard. One night he and some of our friends came up with the plans to rip up to old patio, pour a new one, and install a grill. I'm not sure how the final product will turn out, but his is what our backyard looks like right now.

Easter weekend was very busy! My grandmother had her Easter on Good Friday. I went to Trenton to eat with my dad's side of the family. My mom's side of the family threw my cousin, Sam, and his fiance', Melissa, a shower and a surprise pounding at Donna's house. Sunday (Easter), Michael and I went to Carla's for Easter in Alamo. I love hanging out with family, eating good home-cooked food, and having fun with my family.

Vanessa emailed me months ago and asked if she could come visit. We LOVE company so we couldn't wait for the day to finally come. Michael only requested off while his sister was in town, but he wound up working the ENTIRE time she was here. But Vanessa and I had a lot of fun. Michael's dad came down so that he could ride back to Michigan with Vanessa. He stayed at the house and worked each day. Vanessa went to school with me and worked with my kids. They were very happy to have Mrs. Velie in our class. She told them that I was much older than her....and they believed her!
After dinner at the Spaghetti Warehouse Vanessa took her picture with a game. Notice that it landed on "sexy."
Mallory threw Gelena a surprise lingerie shower. She got a lot of practical lingerie, and we had a lot of fun!
Gelena had to open the bag with a pair of panties and a lottery ticket. If she lost, she had to put the panties on....if she won, the person that brought the panties had to put them on.
