I am so very over this computer. I want a new one. I guess I should just add that to the growing list, right? SO much has happened since I was last here. I hated to to be blogging, but it was out of my control....anyway, thats enough of that. My Little Guy is no longer a baby. He is a big boy of ONE! His bday was yesterday and all day long I kept watching the clock thinking this time a year ago..........and so on. It drove A crazy. We had his party last Sunday and it was a roaring success! We had it scheduled for last Saturday, due to a little thing called a blizzard we had to wait. It was sad because my family was coming to town and they weren't all able to make it. My brother Tony and his wife Brandi came in really late on Thursday night, so they beat the snow. It was fun to be snowed in with family. We had alot of fun last weekend. By Sunday the sun was shining and the roads were better, so we had great party! Little Guy got tons of cute things, but I think his favorite was a car that he can ride in. Everyone had to take turns pushing him around until he just about fell asleep. It really was darling. I was really sad to see Tony and Brandi head home. We don't get to visit with them as much as we'd like, so it was a nice chance to just relax and talk, and maybe even play a few board games.

The week went by in a blur, I tried to make each day of the week special for the Little Guy. Since we already had his party I didn't want his bday to go by unnoticed. We went to Chuch E Cheese's Saturday night with A's brother, wife, and nephew. We had such a SUPER time!!!! Little guy was too small to do alot of the stuff there, but that didn't stop him from trying! He was amazed at all the noise and lights and kids. It was a blast to watch him, his eyes wide with wonder. He's almost walking now, and thats all he wanted while we were there, was to be able to get down and run and play with the other kids. That makes me sad for him, as cute as it is. He wants so badly to be independent, and he's almost there.
Sunday he got to upfront at church and put his penny in. He got a dollar in return, so I'd say thats called investing wisely! His mamaw took him up front to put in his penny. It was nice to get to sit back and watch him do it instead of being up there with him. Besides, he adores his Mamaw. Sometimes A and I wonder if he will ever like us as much as he adores her! We are truly blessed to have her! I don't think I would have made it through this year without her!

Now that you are properly caught up on my life and things going on around here, I should say farewell for now....enough is enough already. I won't wait so long next time though, because my computer seems to be running smoothly again. At least for the moment. God Bless you all!!!

p.s. pictures of Little guys party and trip to Chuck E Cheese are coming soon!!!

I'm new to this whole blog world. I've just recently found several blogs that truly entertain me. I've been away for a while, doing mommy things, and sister things, and wife things, and not really knowing what to write about. Until today. I logged on and started to catch up on some of my favorite blogs. I couldn't even believe it when I read that Beth from I should be folding Laundry lost her baby twin boys. She was about 19 weeks pregnant. I've never met Beth. I've only left maybe one or two comments for her in the short time I've been reading her blog, but here I am, broken hearted for her. I just don't even have the words to express how I feel. I wish I could say something magnificent that would help heal their hurt, but it's just not possible. They have to feel pain, they have to love and mourn their beautiful baby boys at the same time. Life can be so hard sometimes, hard and overwhelming. But, isn't it good to know that even in the worst of times God is right here for us. He never leaves us or forsakes us. AND, oh this has helped me many times, he will NOT put on us more than what we can handle. So, if your reading this, please say a prayer for the dear family that is going through so much sadness right now. Pray for strength, and understanding.......just pray.

Oh my, it is cold outside!!! As I sit here in my cozy bedroom all I can hear is the wind. Its making everything pop and crack and howl! It's snowing again to. It's really really pretty, as long as I'm inside looking out. It wasn't this cold yesterday, so you can imagine my surprise when we left for church this morning and I didn't have my heavy coat on. least Little Guy was snuggled into his snowsuit. Maybe not snuggled, more like stuffed, zipped and wrapped in a blanket!!! I'm just glad to be home and glad to have power. Our whole city blacked out for a few hours in the middle of the night last night. It was cold, but we had company over last night any so we made some fun out of it!!! Little Guy spent the night with his Mamaw, so it was fun to be in the middle of a winter storm, with no power and not have to worry about him getting too cold. We were up most of the night and since we have a small generator our little house had many people it. It was great fun! But we are all a little sleepy today.......I think Little Guy has the right idea....he is snuggled in his bed taking a lazy Sunday nap!!!! God Bless!!!

Oh yeah, in case you were wondering...the wind chill is - 25.....and yep, that is a NEGATIVE 25!!! Oh my!!!

blah blah blah

Do you ever just have those days that you don't even want to get out of bed?
Oh brother, that is today! It seemed as soon as I opened my eyes this morning
I was in a sour mood. And that's just no fun for anyone. Especially my Little Guy, and his daddy, and we can't forget the little girl that I babysit, Halee. I thought that maybe cleaning the kitchen and really getting some things done that I have been putting off would make me feel better. Ya know what? I was so wrong.... now my back hurts and I hit my thumb with a hammer. Grrrr..... the good news is that Little guy is in bed early and A went to visit our Pastor thats in the hospital. I have at least a good hour to go soak in a hot tub and relax. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day, I pray so. I don't like being in a funk, but thats what I a funk. I think maybe when we get up in the morning Little Guy and I will go to the mall
and walk around some before I have to babysit. It's good to get out of the house...Goodnight ya'll...God Bless!!

What a fun day!!

A, Little Guy, and I had our family pictures taken today, along with Little Guys first birthday pics. It was sooo much fun!!! They turned out really cute, I can't wait to share them with ya! He was such a good boy the whole time we were there. Everyone who knows us keeps asking when we are going to get pictures done. Poor little guy has only had his pics taken professionally once. It was not a fun experience. Actually, it was such a bad experience that we couldn't hardly bear to go through it again. I was so nervous this morning before going, but it was all good. God was with us today! Can you tell how pleased I am? A is at his mama's house right now showing off the proofs. He just couldn't wait! After pics we went to the best mexican restaurant in town and had a yummy lunch. Little guy is fast asleep for his nap, its raining outside, and I'm about to steal a little zzz's myself!! Have a blessed day!

Home remodeling.....ugh...I can hardly bear to even finish..... we moved into this charming little house almost five years ago, and we still haven't finished remodeling. It's truly almost done now though. All thats left if a little bit of paint and carpet in our spare bedroom. I can hardly even remember what the house looked like before we started, and I can wait to see what it looks like when we are done! I have had blinders on for so long that this past week when we finished putting the trim up around all the windows and doors I was speechless! I forgot that thats what a house is supposed to look like! Oh'll be good when it's done....I'm just so tired...... A went to pick up a pizza for a late dinner and the Little Guy is fast asleep in his bed....thats my cue to put on my pj's, pour me a coke on ice, and watch American Idol that I've got taped on DVR.....good night to all....God Bless you!!!

Oh, yeah, if you are the praying kind, we are getting family pictures taken tomorrow, and so far it has never been a pleasant experience......Little Guy is just like his Daddy....gotta make things interesting.......

My Little Guy is not so little anymore.....

Wow, what an exciting day! We have put it off, and put it off...till finally my Little Guy no longer fits in his infant car seat! I didn't want to admit that he was too big for it. Everyone tells you how fast the time goes and how fast they grow up....oh my, is that the truth! I do realize, in case you were wondering, that he isn't even a year yet and already I am having anxiety about him growing up. The good news is that he already had a big boy car seat. His Aunt Lisa bought it for him when he was first born. It was so fun to put him in it! He got so excited and started clapping his hands and squealing! It was such a happy time. He was in our living room when we put him in it to make sure the straps were all set before we fastened it into the car and he wouldn't get out of it!
Whenever we would unstrap him to get him out he would scream! He sat in his new big boy seat for almost a half an hour! And, as if this wasn't enough big boy stuff to make my heart break enough for one day, when we did finally wrestle him from his car seat he took his first steps by himself! Two tiny little shaky steps.....but they were steps. It was too much. I can't for the life of me remember what life felt like before him. I do, however, remember what it looked like.......but again....that's for another day. Good night ya'll... and God Bless!
