Ella has been telling those corny knock-knock jokes lately and Lily has picked up on them.

Here is Lily's version

"Ding, dong"(as opposed to knock, knock)
"Who's there?"
"Joker stinks!"

She thinks she is the funniest thing ever and kept changing joker stinks to joker pooted. All this occured while getting ready for bed. We were laying on Ella's bed and every time she told the punch line she body slammed us. Think WWF Smackdown! Funny, funny that girl!

In Mourning

Ella's new hair cut
Goodbye Pal!
Well, I am officially in mourning over Ella's hair that is. She wanted to get a haircut which we have done at least 5 times but just never this short. She likes it, it will be cool for summer but i am having a hard time b/c she looks so much older. In other news, Lily's pal(pacifier) has gone to Pal fairy land. I have put this off as long as i could but the time has come(well long time ago should have come) to say goodbye!
We have been enjoying the outside and went to Baskin Robbins for the first time today. I had forgotten how exciting that place it, well if you like ice cream that is. But if you don't, well i guess it wouldn't be any fun. So many flavors to choose from.....

It's Graduation Time

Accepting a certificate from one of my professors
Dr. Webster, me , Dr. Freeman
Me and my friend Jamal
My very dear friend Terri who graduated with me

I am officially graduated with a Masters degree in school counseling. After 7 years, 2 children, a few wrinkles and a couple of strands of gray hair..... I am done! Thank the Lord! Yesterday, i participated in a dedication ceremony for my program. I even had the opportunity to speak about one of my professors in front of a couple hundred people. I was asked to speak at graduation in front of a thousand people nonetheless on behalf of ALL the graduate programs at Southern but since graduation was today at 9:30 i declined. I did feel like that was a huge honor. I don't think it has set in with me yet but i know that in a few weeks when i receive that diploma that it will. I still don't have a job yet, but that's okay. I know one will come about eventually. So, yeah me!
