Busy Busy

I have been meaning to blog this week, but it seems like we've been busy.

My daughter in enrolled in our town's 3 week summer recreational program. Today is the last day. She has had so much fun and it's so heartwarming to see her out there making all of these new friends and having a blast with them. She's been gone a lot these last couple weeks and I miss her a lot. However, I have a lot of family who are involved with the program as well so I know she's in good hands.

Earlier this week I got some pretty devastating news. I'm not going to say what happened, but I'm still heartbroken. For as long as I live I'll never understand why such horrible things happen to such great people. I've really been thinking about this news all week. I've been pretty emotional over it. I'm just a bystander in everything so I can't even imagine how the others are taking it.

We are going to be pretty busy this summer, but I promise I'll try to start blogging more. My life is pretty boring though, so I don't really have much to blog about. I'm thinking that's actually a good thing though. :)

So Pathetic

I find it so pathetic how something as little as a photograph can trigger a tidal wave of emotions.
Take this evening for example. My baby brother and his fiance just recently bought their first home. All of the family was there for their housewarming party. Someone had mentioned how they recently found a bunch of pictures from my daughter's first birthday party some years ago. She had to run back home for something and grabbed the pictures. She had mentioned that there was a picture in there that I may or may not have wanted to see. Of course I said I wanted to see it. I started looking through the pictures and I started to cry. First of all, it was just so crazy to see how much my little girl has grown through the years. I don't really remember her being so little. I look at her now and she's just such a big girl. Finally I get to THE picture. I started bawling. It was a picture of my grandmother who passed away nearly two years ago. I miss her so much every day. It's actually really strange timing because I've been thinking a lot about her and even having a couple dreams about her lately. I really do miss her. I was really happy to see the picture and see her so happy, but at the same time, it makes me really sad because she's no longer here. I will treasure this picture forever though. ♥♥♥

I'm Back!

I know I haven't been the best blogger lately. It's nice and warm and the kids keep me busy. Also, I've been keeping busy with my business which is always good. We are doing pretty good though. Kids had a touch of what they thought was pink eye, but they are on antibiotic eye drops and things are clearing up nicely. My baby brother (who turns 21 today!) just bought a house last week, and it's been exciting. We are trying to plan lots of fun and exciting things to do this summer. I can't wait to do some of it. Of course if I get offered some parties we might have to change our plans.

Leaf, I promise to at least attempt to blog more frequently! In the meantime, you know where to find me. From what I hear, I'm all over FB! ;)

The Coolest Babies Ever!

I have made some pretty amazing friends from Babycenter. Even though I've had a ton of problems and drama from the 'ladies' on the boy's birth board, I am proud to call so many of the rest some of my best friends. Here's a little video montage of the first year in the lives of our babes!
