A Month Later

Well, I don't know why I even bother with this other than I can say more than on facebook. What a month. Aiden is getting cuter, plays more soccer and is doing great in school. Liam is getting bigger by the day!! So cute. Yesterday was my birthday and I got a surprise visit by Jamie, Aiden and Liam in the morning. Aiden wrote his name and Liam's in the card, I was so happy. I got two pictures from them, and of course I cried. Later in the day we had a mini party, what a blast!!! Susan brought over Just Dance, I got a Wii for my birthday, and we were all having the best time. Even Corey was a great sport and did it. There were a couple of 1 on 1 dance contests. I got my very first Willow statue from Erik and Jamie, it is on display, Mother and Son, I Love it. The day started off with great news from Portland, the tests on Derek were wrong and he does not have leukemia. Prayers answered. Well, I have got to go and clean up after the party, too much fun last night!!!!

The Day After

Well, Super Bowl party was great. A lot of family and great friends. I even won a small amount in a pool, very small, but Hey!! I never win at all. Russ and Gary were the big winners, so we were all telling them they get to buy this week. I wonder if they will show up?? Kidding. Liam is so big and absolutely adorable!! He smiled at me when I was talking to him, melted my heart. And speaking of that, Adien made me a valentine with a cookie and candy, SO SWEET. They will be gone this weekend, but after that, I want to have some "holding" time with Liam and hugs and kisses for Aiden. I am so happy to have 2 grandsons. Well, that is all for now. Now I get to clean up the mess from Super Bowl and get my sewing back out. I had a great weekend and am so thankful for the people who came and all they did.

What Has Happened??

I doubt anyone reads this anymore. I have been doing quite a bit and absolutely nothing. Liam is growing like a weed and Aiden adores him. I am right now getting ready for Super Bowl, sniff sniff the end of football until August. Corey is 16, YIKES!! I spend most of my computer time, what little I get, checking on facebook. That is why I don't seem to have time for this blog anymore. If you don't have facebook and read this, come over to Super Bowl!! Party starts at 2. See ya, I will remember to post every Monday from now on to keep all 4 of you in touch with my dull life

Well, Christmas is in 2 days and i am still making up one list after another. I am almost done though. I have had a very busy week. Santa was here this last Sunday, God bless him and Mrs. Claus AGAIN for making it a memorable day for the kids. Yesterday, I made peantu butter balls, I hate making them but the boys love them. I have a few more things to get and hope that Rick does his part. I hate it when we decide on a gift and then he goes and does something completely different. I do my buying based on his and when he switches it up it tips the whole apple cart. One more day to convince him otherwise. It seems like every year there is one person that is IMPOSSIBLE. Oh well, I do what I can. Last night at Taco Tuesday, the dining gang exchanged bags of goodies. I have more than enough cookies, candies, etc for the holidays, thanks guys!! Cindy even baked which is quite an accomplishment for her. She is a GREAT cook, but doesn't bake. Good job Aunt Cindy!!! It was also decided that they are coming here for New Years Eve, ehcich is cool. Very casual, I will make my veggie chili and everybody is bringing something and we will play cards and Left, Right, Center. I hope to make it until midnight!! Tyler works that night, so maybe we will get to see him. Well, I gotta go and make up my list for today, times a wastin !!! Merry Christmas eveyone!!!!

He's Here!!!

Liam James if FINALLY here!! It seemed like only a few days since Aiden stood on a chair in Roscoes to show me his "Big Brother" shirt to surprise me with the announcement. Liam is such a chunk, he came into the world at 8 lbs. 12 oz. and was 19 1/2 inches long. He gets to go home today. We are going to go over on Saturday, take some food and smother that baby with kisses. I have special stuff for Aiden, he is going to be the best big brother. He was SOOOOO excited when he got picked up from school to go to the hospital. There were quite a few of us in the waiting room and talk about a sign of the times............... at a little after 7, ALL of our cell phones went off at once with the announcement from Alex that Liam came into the world at 6:18 PM. A few minutes later, Alex came down and got Aiden, Jamie's dad, and me and Rick so we could go see him. Aiden was SO cute. He gave Liam a little glow worm that plays songs and was more than happy to see him and Jamie. It tore my heart out though because as soon as Aiden realized that Jamie and Liam weren't coming home, he got very upset. He had me in tears too. Erik and Jamie took him home to his house and stayed the night with him and he got to go back early the next morning. Now, today they will ALL be going home and getting settled. It will kill me, but I am going to give them a couple of days to be their own little family... THEN I will pounce!!!!

On Friday, Rick and a couple of his siblings, left to go to Portland to check on Phil and visit with him and his family. He left from Felipe's, I stayed because there was a party going on there!! We took over the back room, dang near everybody came this last Friday. Then that night, Erik, Jamie and Q came over and had a sleepover with me and Payton. I was crashed out when they came in, but Q let me know he was there. The next morning him and Payton ran and ran and ran around the backyard. Payton LOVES having Q come over. Saturday I spent the day sorting out stuff and watching football. I am SO obcessed with Christmas projects. Of course, I think of all these ideas when it is too late to get them done for this Christmas. BUT, I am going to get them all started so that they are in my face thru the year and I can work on them and finish them for NEXT year. Yesterday, Jamie called and told me that her and Q were coming over in the late afternnon and Erik was coming after work. AWESOME!! We decided to do burgers "real" hamburgers, not turkey. Jamie came thru the door with flowers and beer, brought a tear to my eye. We sat and drank and visited, I loved it!! Tonight, Tyler is coming to stay. He has a training thing going on. I am not complaining, not one bit!! I am going to cook a ham and sweet potatoe fries for dinner, stuff I can't do when Rick is home, he can't eat it. Well, off to tackle another closet!!! Thank you Erik and Jamie for this last weekend, I love you guys!!!

Halloween and More

What a fun weekend. It started out Friday night with the usual suspects at Felipe's, again nice. Then Saturday afternoon we went to Farrell's in Mission Viejo for a private opening party. I thought we were just there for dessert, but got a great lunch too. Thanks Tom and Kim, I think you hit gold with this one!! We even had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Farrell himself, such a nice man. Then that night we went to Alex and Jamie and Aiden's house to go trick or treating. Aiden really got into it after he caught up with a couple of neighbor kids he really likes. They have the best area for families. I guess there are others who think the same, because at the entrance of the neighborhood there was a drop off point for "others". On Sunday, I went to a baby shower to honor Jamie and Liam. Very nice day. I got to see members of the family that I don't get to see often enough. When I got home, Aiden was still here, so we built bugs out of Trios, great stuff. Now I have to get ready for the holidays, my favorite time of year!!!
