Ask My Mom How She Is

My Mom, she tells a lot of lies,
She never did before.
But from now until she dies,
She'll tell a whole lot more.

Ask my Mom how she is
And because she can't explain,
She will tell a little lie
Because she can't describe the pain.

Ask my Mom how she is,
She'll say "I'm alright."
If that's the truth, then tell me,
why does she cry each night?

Ask my Mom how she is,
She seems to cope so well.
She didn't have a choice you see,
Nor the strength to yell.

Ask my Mom how she is,
"I'm fine, I'm well, I'm coping."
For God's sake Mom, just tell the truth,
Just say your heart is broken.

She'll love me all her life,
I loved her all of mine.
But if you ask her how she is,
She'll lie and say she's fine.

I am Here in Heaven.
I cannot hug from here.
If she lies to you don't listen,
Hug her and hold her near.

On the day we meet again,
We'll smile and I'll be bold.
I'll say, "You're lucky to get in here, Mom,
With all the lies you told!"

Well we have be BUSY! I think that is NORMAL for us! So many different things happening right now!

Got all our NEW kitchen cabinets (Thanks Gary & Rusty!) They look beautiful!

Ryan asked me if I took before pictures... Nope FORGOT, but I will look and see if I can find anything.

New counter tops all done! Ryan and I took the old door(We really want to reuse it-love the look) and sanded and sanded and broke our sander (use to way to much or to hard) now just wanting to get it stained and all the trim and crown! I doing a 4x8 sheet of alder bead board on one one(and oh I can't tell ???? will let you all know when the WALL is complete) We really have ALOT to still do. The kitchen looks bigger!? We are ready to tile, just not wanting to tile very bad. Love the tile we got! Everything has really came together! We are glad we choose everything we did!! And the dishwasher doesn't TALK BACK! KarLee is loving only having to put away now!

Speaking of little Miss KarLee, she tried out for a dance team in Shelley and MADE IT!!! She is on the JR Performance TEAM!!!!! (JR. TEAMS- Our older performance TEAMS are for dancers who "live, eat, drink and breathe" dance; who hold dance as their most important extra-curricular activity.

YEA! So VERY VERY PROUD of her!!! I took her balloons at school to tell her, and I cried, yep I did!! She asked, mom are you crying?? I said yes I am! And I am very proud of you!! We hugged and laughed!!! She hugged me like 4 different time!!!

I really like the dance studio in Shelley!! She has really liked it too!!! .

This is one thing that made me really interested and why I changed KarLee to this studio

My goal for our students is to have them grow and develop
in technique, self-confidence and poise, to gain new friends
and to experience fun and positive instruction.
Keri Payne -Owner/Director

She took Ballet (Pre Pointe) & Hip Hop this last year!

They finished the year off with a Dance Recital at Civic Auditorium in Idaho Falls.

Decide on taking her to lunch and when she opened the pizza box, THERE was the QUESTION!! Then she said she would let him know.... WHAT? I told him it was ok, maybe she just wanted to come up with a cool way to answer! Mom's so smart ~ LOL!
