Cinderella visited the Tusko Castle!

OK - I FINALLY got around to posting pictures of Hailey's Cinderella party!!! Wow - what a couple of weeks I've had! It seems like there is so much to get done all of a sudden, we're leaving for our summer vacation next weekend, and when we get home it will be time to get ready for the new school year already! Can you believe it? I can't. So, needless to say, we've been cramming in Dr's appointments, dentist appointments, and everything else you can imagine. In fact, we spent this past Monday in the ER with Brendan, he has an inguinal hernia that will require surgery in the near future!! Poor kid! So that will be something else to get done before school begins!
Well, anyway, the party was a big hit, a good time was had by all. Hailey absolutely adored Cinderella - and Cinderella was wonderful with the kids! They sang songs and danced, went on a treasure hunt, she did face/hand painting, and then did a little "magic" show. Then it was time to blow out the candles on the birthday cake and she even made time to pose for pictures with each individual child so that I can send pictures to all their parents! For those of you that came - thanks so much for coming, for those that couldn't make it, we missed you!
I'll be back soon with some more summer memories to post!

Two Great Men; One Great Day!

My daddy and me - 1972; mom and dad - 19??

Ken and Kim

Happy Birthday to two great men in my family. My Daddy and my brother-in-law were both born on this day, and Kenny, you became such a loving father figure when I lost my dad, it's fitting that you share his birthday.
My dad would have been 77 years old today...but, he is eternally youthful in my memory.
Have a wonderful birthday!! You are so loved!!
(sorry I had to recycle your picture guys - I guess I need to take more of you!!! Oh, well, it's a great one!)

Hailey's 3 Today!!!

At 7:55 in the morning on July 8th, 2005, our little peanut, Hailey Dallin Tusko joined our family. It's hard to believe that 3 years have gone so quickly! Hailey is growing up so fast, and she is the apple of her Daddy's eye! I put together a little slide show of her for those of you that don't know her all that well!
This Saturday, Cinderella will be visiting her birthday party to play with the kids! It will be so much fun...she is such a little princess herself!
We love you Hailey Dallin, you are the light of our lives! You are an amazing little girl, you're little, but you're feisty, and so full of life and curiosity! I can't wait to see what all your tomorrow's bring!
