Happy Birthday Mom, We love and miss you A LOT!! Hugs and Kisses to you and dad!!

Winter Formal

Nicholas went to his Winter Formal last Saturday and even though I am the "MOM" I think he looked pretty darn handsome and I think Kayleigh looked beautiful!! I did get a little teary as Nicholas wore my dads tie tack. Nicholas thought the world of my dad, he once said "when I grow up I hope I am 1/2 the gentleman that Grandpa is" He was so afraid he would lose it (he didn't).
He had a GREAT time at the dance and one of the moms had them all over after the dance and they ALL spent the night there. Yes, I was OK with that as it was a HUGE group and I am glad he was not driving home in the middle of the night. The first weekend in May is the PROM and since he is a JUNIOR this will be his first year to go...I honestly can not believe he is a junior. I just can not imagine that I only have 1 more year with him at home before we both;) go off to college!

Tyler's new glasses

Tyler has been complaining a while about not be able to see the clock and stuff at school.Me being the great mom that I am called right away and got him into the eye doctor..OPPS,that is someother kids good mom, It took me MONTHS to remember to call as we have not found a eye doctor here I really like (and we have ONLY lived here 12 or 13 years:)
Well, he did need glasses, so did I but he wears his!! I have to say I am so proud of him as he has been wearing them to school all the time. He has commented on how everything is clearer which makes me even feel more like a great mom for calling, opps waiting so long!!

Happy New Year!!

We had our ANNUAL New Years Party at the Wangs House again this year. We have a fun group of friends and all the kids get along so it is always a fun night:) I only took a few pictures which is a good sign. Hank had to bring out the Moonshine again and a few new people were inducted into the "Moonshine Club" We are almost out so I am thinking they are going to have to find a "new what the hell was I thinking drink"...

Christmas 2010

It is hard to believe Christmas has come and gone for another year..I think that is a sign of age as it never seemed to go this fast when I was a kid. I have to say I was really not "feeling" it this year. I am not sure if it was me missing my parents or the boys being older. I miss the excitement of little ones at Christmas and I really miss my parents so maybe it was a combination of both.
Christmas Eve we went to church and sat with some friends and it was a beautiful service. I was teary the who service and by the time we got to Silent Night and we all had candle I was crying..not just a was the "ugly cry". I think everything I had been feeling all month HIT me and my mom LOVED Christmas eve service and LOVED Silent Night with the candles. The bad part was I did not have a tissue so as I am using my "red glove" the nice lady next to me hands me a couple of tissues..I will say I honestly felt better after my cry.
Hank and the boys and I went to dinner and then came home to open our family gifts. This year we bought a new TV and cabinet and both boys just got 1 big gift from us..(Nicholas a guitar and Tyler a new TV for his Xbox). The next morning Santa came and they opened their gifts and then off to Cinti to my sisters. I did not take a picture there and am still trying to figure out why.
