My Son.....Taylor Christian Yocum

Taylor has been doing so great with his worship music. He is so talented and I couldn't be more proud of my baby. Isn't he cute! Wow....Everytime I look at him I am so amazed that God chose me to be his Mom. Taylor started a new myspace for his music and I hope that everyone will go and check him out! He's beyond incredible!

My cup runneth over


I had a wonderful Mother's Day this year. I went to church with my 4 babies. Sadly, they are not babies anymore. It was so awesome when the church prayed over the Moms. I was sitting in the middle and I had Taylor & Jalen holding my right hand and Alex & Courtney holding my left hand. I was literally surrounded by love!

After church, we had my Mom and Sister over for brunch. Bill made the best roast on the BBQ. We also had Brie and Roasted Garlic, Gorgazola with Baguette. I made a couple of Breakfast Cassaroles too. And of course.....CUPCAKES!

It was so great to have everyone together! God has blessed us with such a wonderful family.
My Cup Runneth Over!

Maybe I'll buy a scooter!


It's time to say good-bye to our Ford Expedition! It's officially for sale! It is such a gas hog and at these prices, we need to be driving something more economical.

Please pray for us as we look for a good cheap car that isn't going to break the bank at the gas pump!

This is what I paid the other day.

Just CRAZY!!!

Housesitting & Dog Sitting

Who let the dogs out??

We have spent the last 10 days house sitting and dog sitting for Bill's parents while they were in Palm Desert on vacation. Although it was a huge job with many details, it was a nice change of pace. We are finally home tonight and it will be nice to sleep in our own bed. I hope my in-laws had a great time on Vacation. We were happy that we were able to take care of things while they were gone.

It was so cute to see the 3 dogs cuddling up together at night.
Stewart, Joey & Katie = BFF

Tyler's an ALLSTAR!


Tyler is such a good little ball player! He plays short stop for the "A's". On Saturday, his team won their game 22-8. As Tyler would say, "We creamed them!" He hit a great double and hit the dirt face first to catch the most amazing play!

Bill was working at the golf course on Saturday, so I went and had a great day with my sister and Mike. What we thought was going to be a pretty nice day turned out to be so so very COLD! The capri pants and sandals just weren't cutting it. We were all bundled up with our blankets. We found out that belly laughing so hard that you almost pee your pants will make you forget about the weather. Oh Stacy, 110 pounds.....ha ha ha ha. (Sorry...inside joke)

Stacy, Mike & Tyler are the cutest family! What a fun day ~ Let's do it again soon!


Married to my best friend for 9 years!

B + A = True Love Always!

Bill and I celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary on May 7th. Bill was so sweet and brought flowers into my work. I am so lucky to have a man that is so good to me.

The ladies in my office are convinced that Bill is the greatest man on earth. They keep saying that he is making their husbands look bad. Bill brought me the most beautiful purple and white tulips! He always remembers that Tulips are my FAVORITE flower. I love you Bill ~ I can't wait to spend my future with you!

After work, Bill took me out to the Orenco Station Grill for dinner. We both had steak for dinner. It was a really great place and we plan on going back again soon. If you get a chance to go there, try the warm shrimp cocktail appetizer! AMAZING!!!
