Little Cayden is in his surgery!! NO SWIMMING!! Bummer...but you can bet I will find all kinds of wonderful things to do with this boy in Florida!! 

Now pray for ME!!!

So today I begin.  I want to be Valerie Bertinelli...on the cover of PEOPLE!!  In a bikini!! Ha!! No seriously, I have started the right work out, the right diet, and the right attitude.  Here goes.  I want to look fabulous when I sit down on one of these chairs....  Wish me luck!!!

Just Praying...

Saying some prayers for my little Cayden.  He broke his little leg today and is seeing his ortho surgeon tomorrow.  Pray for this sweet little boy, who already has been through so much.  Pray for his mommy and daddy too...Cayden's leg is in a splint and I doubt they will get much sleep tonight!

Happy Birthday Danny!

Daniel John - born March 28th 1985 - 8lbs, 30zs  - a blond haired, blue eyed, beautiful baby BOY!!  We could not wait to find out if it was a BOY...Dave had tried to auction off our third girl at a reverse raffle 2 months earlier!!  We wanted a boy so badly.  We had no idea back then, no ultrasounds to tell you the sex of your baby...we waited, and waited.  Dan was about 2 1/2 weeks late.  It was a Thursday night and Dave was ready to head out for his bowling league when I said --Not so fast...the baby is coming...RIGHT NOW!!  Labor started at 9:30 p.m.  Daniel John was born at 10:00 p.m.  It was so fast,  so exciting and we were so surprised to see this little baby boy who looked like he was dipped in flour!  So blond and fair, such white snowy peach fuzz everywhere on his body!  We loved him instantly!  I have never seen Dave so thrilled , so happy, really so very proud!    Dave ran some errands the next day and when he returned to the hospital he had this card and roses.  I just loved his response to the birth of his first son.   Dan has been fun to have around.  From the days of mother/son dances at Avon Oaks, days of crying about going to school (I just want to be home with my mom- he would say!), to grade school baseball, high school-college hockey, and everything in between  I have LOVED this boy.
I cannot wait to see the rest of what is in store for Danny.
           Happy Birthday Danny... We could not love you more!   Have a great Day!

Something WICKED!

Beckie is so right...something WICKED is going on around here!!!   Check out her blog!!


Molly LOVES chocolate milk.   She calls it "CHALK O MILLK"  She get so excited when I understand her request.  She bobs her head up and down, saying,  "yes, meme, chalk o millk!"

How can I resist really?  I know Mommy says to give her regular milk first and that chocolate milk is a TREAT but seriously, can you blame me???

Yes, that is my hand, I am guilty of making this girl giggle with delight!  I will try again tomorrow to start with regular milk but for today...

                                                  It's Chalk o Millk time again!!

Missy's Bridal Shower!!

We had a great time Saturday at the shower Sharon gave for Missy!!   Missy looked so beautiful and happy!  It is always so fun to see her!  Selena came into town too..

Here she is with her Mama Roxi!  Roxi just glows when her kids are around her!  I understand now how hard it is to have them move so far away and only get to see them a few times a year. :-(

This is Kristin and Missy opening a Treasure Box for recipes.  Selena made it her self and it had a recipe for a happy marriage on the front of it!  It will be so easy for Missy and Jason to follow this recipe...they have all the right ingredients!!!

Its was so nice of everyone to include the children...grand or not!...and they all had a great time too!!

Just check out the two beautiful babies...never mind them...look at the glow on these two MOMMYS faces.  I just love it!

Taleiha and her "Brother" Roberto also had a fun time!  I think grandma RaeAnn is enjoying herself too!!

So... I am working hard to figure out my photoshop element.  I am trying like crazy to make a picture collage... I just can't figure out what I am doing WRONG!!  My pictures should be square like this example below that I borrowed from Gypsy Feet.  She used only four pictures but I have also seen this done with 9 like I was trying to do above.

Notice how mine is not correct???? HELP!!  Any way... we had a great day today!  Sarah enjoyed some JUMPING - hope you enjoy my pictures!

Saturday Post

We went to school yesterday...St Ignatius Elementary to visit Mrs Walton's 3rd grade class. Sarah wore her Princess dress and dazzled the third graders with her rendition of How Will You Know!! Molly seemed totally intimidated by the whole affair. We got there in time for a third grade science test and let me tell you folks, I AM NOT SMARTER THAN A THIRD GRADER.

       Sarah Rose waiting patiently at the side table for the testing to be done!  

In other news... Dave will be back Mon...I can't wait!  Its been lonely around here without him home.  We are going to head out to see Tegan and help with some house hunting!  Florida with the girls and one boy is coming up soon too!!  We are so excited to go!!!

           Beckie surprising Molly when she got home from work!

   Molly just loving on Cayden like she does everyday!! The girl can't get enough of her little cousin!  

     Cayden looking up to see Mommy looking down at him!!  He will often look up to the balcony to see if his Mommy is up yet!!  When he hears her, he just lights up and looks right up to see if she is up there looking over the railing at him!!  He is so very smart!!

I am married to a...


Beckie's Sleeping Beauty

Princess Sarah Rose...asleep and dreaming of True Love's Kiss.  Her Mommy bought her this new princess dress!  Sarah says she feels just like a real princess when she is wearing it!  She loves it!  Is she Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella??  After all, she is missing a shoe!

Who ever she is... she is precious!

The Care Giver

Molly loves to take care of Cayden.  She wants to kiss him, feed him, hug and squeeze him!!  She is so sweet to him all the time.  So gentle.  Molly loves Cayden and he just smiles so big when he sees her!   Florida will be so fun this year for all of us!  We are counting the days till we go!

Ok, so Dave finds the oatmeal packet with the note...he wonders...umm, I wonder which one of those ladies left this here for me? Funny, isn't he???

She's My... Brown Eyed Girl

Do you remember know the words, sing along!!  Over and over we sing this song and Molly knows the NA NA NA ... part best!!

Molly loves her new luv-luv!  I found this pink ELEPHANT luv-luv (her little blanket she loves to hold while sucking her thumb) in Florida and of course, I had to get it for her!

The view from little ballerina in the making.  Molly wants to be just like her sister Sarah!

Molly is just the sweetest little thing.  She is talking up a storm!  It seems like it was overnight that she just started talking!  It is sometimes hard to understand her but she doesn't give up easily!! She will repeat herself over and over then just grab you and take you where she needs you to be in order to understand what she wants you to give her!!  She is 20 months old...2 in June.  She is really becoming a fun little person to be around!
