HaPpY 14tH bIrThDaY jUlEe!!

Happy birthday Julee!
Poor Julee spent the morning of her birthday marching in the Watervliet Memorial Day Parade. That meant getting up early even though there was no school, carrying 40lbs worth of bells, and marching from the high school to the Memorial Park in Watervliet in 90* weather.  She did an awesome job though and was even good sport enough to smile when her crazy mother was chasing her down the parade route with a camera.
Here are 14 things you may or may not know about Julee:
1. Her favorite color is blue
2. She LOVES going to the movies
3. She still has the same crazy, curly, thick hair that she's always had
4. She does not know how to keep her room picked up
5. She is a drummer at heart
6.  She kills her dad playing the "yellow one" car game EVERY morning
7. She is semi-excited (her words) that she gets to go to her first youth dance in 2 weeks
8. She loves to play the piano
9. She is a saver, not a spender
10. Her favorite food is Hawaiian Haystacks
11. Her favorite TV show is NCIS
12. She can (still) touch her tongue to her nose
13. She joined the jazz band this year
14. She is an all-around awesome girl!
Happy 14th Lulee!  We love you!

DEAD or not DEAD

Rick just asked me when the last time I blogged was.  I told him it was February 27th.  He said the blog was DEAD.  I told him he was wrong.  So as to not be a liar, here I am.  We were behind this car in the drive-thru at Burger King the other night.  Now, I like Twilight just as much as the next guy.  We've read the books and seen the movies.  I think Julee even had the Twilight conversation hearts around Valentine's Day.  But really?!?
