Jessica and Tyler come to visit

Last week, Jess and Tyler were able to come and visit us. They flew up for a wedding reception and a babyshower for Valerie. It was good to see them again and it gave Don and I a good chance to spoil Tyler for a few days.
Tyler just LOVED jumping on the trampoline that Valerie and Jason have. He was having the time of his life just jumping and jumping. He had us all laughing with him!!

Tyler and Kaleb got to know each other better. They had fun playing together and they got along good.
Jess and I were able to paint the nursery for Valerie and so we made a trip to Home Depot for the paint. The boys got to drive the carts and each had their own steering wheel. They did pretty good, so...if....NASCAR ever has a doubles team, they better watch out because the Shobe-LaRue team looks pretty darn good!!!
On Sunday afternoon, we went to a baby shower for Valerie.
Then on Sunday evening, we all celebrated Tom's birthday with our family and all the grand-kids. Kaleb, Sydney, Kyla, Skylar, Tyler, Allissa and Katie~~We had fun with Jess and Tyler here and as usual, the time went way to fast and they had to go home. :-( But...the good news is...that they will be back in June to see the new baby Lightheart.

Happy Birthday

I would like to say "Happy Birthday" to our son Tom. He is 22 yrs old today, April 23rd. Tom goes to college at NIU and studies hard!!! He has a very witty sense of humor which is very funny, and he is just a lot of fun to be with. He doesn't like stupid people!! Tom has had it rough growing up with 3 sisters!! Once when he was about 3-4 yrs old, he decided to go upstairs and take on all 3 of them at once.Well....they sent him packing real fast and he came back downstairs crying. That was the last time he tried that!! Tom is also a great server at a restaurant near school. He likes to come home and throw around his niece and nephews!! So....Happy Birthday Tom and we are very proud of you!!
