So it was Tuesday the 22nd of April and I was having one of those days! Ryan called home to talk to me and I was a grump! He then told me he was gonna bring me home a surprise to make me feel better! Well that doesn't happen that often so when he got home he told me to go outside to the car to get my surprise! Well I was stressing because the week before I had found a kitty just like "Pumpkin" at the pound. I had also contacted the landlords to see if we could have another cat in the house. The only problem was I had not yet told Ryan they had said "No"! So all I could think about was how we were gonna have to take "Jerry" (the cat back) when all of a sudden Shannon & Sven jumped out from around the corner! Well of course because I was so emotional I just fell apart! Balling like a baby! It just felt so good to have them here and they couldn't have picked a better time! We ventured around the city and went to the Lake! We just kinda gave them a mini tour of the area that we live! They even got to experience a good old rain & lightning storm too! We also went to Six flags... Sven, Eli & Ryan went on a few big coasters! Eli had to tell his father to "Open your eyes, Dad"! :) Needless to say we had a wonderful time with them and it was very sad to say goodbye again... but I know we will see them soon!
Eli lost his very first tooth Monday April 28th, 2008! He was pulling some lego's apart with his teeth and well it just popped out! He was a little startled at first... (bleeding) but once he realized what had happened he was very excited!
My life is made up of a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys that we created together. In different ways they have all inspired me to be a better wife, mommy and person.
I started this blog as a way to share our "little" adventures with our friends & family that exactly one year ago we packed up & moved half way across the country from. It has been a roller coaster of emotions since then but it has also taught me so much about "being thankful" for the little things and not taking life for granted.
