1 year ago

A year ago today my dad went to join my mom. Tonight my kids both got home from being gone a week (one to Florida and one to camp) and I found myself reaching for the phone to call my mom and dad to tell them my kids were HOME!!! I find myself reaching for the phone ALL the time. I miss my parents for ME but I miss them even more for my Kids. I know they are watching down on them but I want them to tell me how proud they are of them. I want my mom to "stick up" for them..ok Tyler..when I am about ready to ring his neck:) I want my dad to see and tell me how much they have grown and say he never thought Nicholas legs would be more then a foot long:) and talk about his fat cheeks. He would be amazed at Tyler as he grew 5 inches this year!! I just want to be able to pick up the phone and have them say HI. I know I was lucky to have them as long as I did as some people are not that lucky BUT that does not make it any easier...
We love you and miss you!!!

The 4th

For the 4th of July we went to our friends Diane and Daniels house. They live out in the middle of NATURE and even though it rained ALL day we had a GREAT time. The highlights of the day was Brian showing us his golfing talents (how many swings to hit the ball:), the WONDERFUL food (fish fry) and the sounds of nature.

Nicholas is 16!!!

Nicholas was 16 on June 25th and that weekend he around 40 friends over for a party:)
It was a lot of fun and I have to say the kids were very good!!! With a pool it is a worry but I did my "little pool rules speech" and I have to say they listed! They swam and ate then hit the basement familyroom which we bought black lights for the ceiling and it was a HUGE hit. Nicholas had said to wear white and there was a lot of "glowing" going on..
Happy Birthday Nicholas..we love you!!

Happy 4th of July

Hank and I took Tyler and a friend of his to the fireworks last not know if it was ME and the MOOD I have been in or what but I was not overly impressed.
Hank is still job hunting and to say that it is not getting to me would be a lie..1 more month of a pay check and insurance!!
The kids go back to school in a not ready for that. I have NO idea what I am doing next year as what I did was funded by a grant and as of now there is NO grant.
I will do a post soon on Nicholas' 16th Birthday party..40 kids, food, a swimming pool and black lights in the basement family room!!!

Happy 4th to everyone and a BIG Thank You to those protecting our Country!!!
