It's so hard to say goodbye.....

Tonight I had to put my baby boy Fido down. He was an old lil guy, normally weighing about 9 pounds today he was only 5. I knew he was nearing the end of his days as he's been having seizures daily and could barely walk, not even to go potty outside. I took him to the vet only to find out he was going through heart failure and the doctor felt with his quality of life he should go to doggie Heaven. This was so much tougher to go through then I ever imagined it would be. My mom met me there to support me as I watched him slowly fall asleep. Fido was a really awesome dog for so many years of my life, since age 19. Today I am 34, and sometimes it felt he would be with me forever. I will miss Fido so much but I know he is so much happier where he is. I will see you again someday Fido. I love you buddy!

Things have been hard for our family. Last Wednesday I got a call that my sister Cher fell down the stairs at home so I met them at the hospital. She broke both of her wrists and really hurt her face pretty good. They did her reconstructive surgery the next day at around 2:30 in the afternoon. Seeing her in so much pain was heart wrenching. Today she is feeling some better and tomorrow she will be going to a skilled nursing facility because she can't really do anything for herself. I took a picture of her with my cell phone, so it isn't the best quality. The best thing for her is prayer and there is tons out there for her right now. That is what is carrying her through! Thank you all!

On to a more chipper note, I got this crazy hair and decided to see if Portrait Innovations had any appointments open yesterday. Luckily they did, so I took Greyson for his 3 yr pictures. Mom went with us and I think I bought more because she went..haha but I love them all. He had the photographer laughing at him so many times. We were the last appointment and she was having so much fun with him, she didn't care how long we were there.

Where the heck have I been????

I have been a very bad blogger the past couple months. I get like that. So many things have happened since I last blogged. We moved back to St. Peters, YAY! I am really happy about that because it means 60 less miles on both of our cars daily and not to mention I got some of my sanity back from not sitting in so much traffic. Rachel- I am sorry you will not get your daily St. Louis traffic report, but I had to...haha.

Rachel and JD Huse have finally gotten pregnant after trying for a very long time. I am thrilled to announce that! Most of my blog readers probably know them. So, if you're a prayer, please add them to your prayers for a healthy 9 mos. I know the baby will be gorgeous no matter what with their looks. Their daughter Lorelai is a doll and very smart!

Last Greyson turned 3 on August 25th! We can't believe he is that old already. Why must it fly by? I love every single day with him and feel blessed to be his mommy. Since his birthday fell on a weekday I called a great friend, Angie McCarthy, and asked her to join us at Chuck E. Cheese's. We had so much fun! So, thanks Angie, Collin, and Austin for coming and celebrating his birthday with us!

Yesterday I brought him to get a pair of Sketchers he kept saying he wanted on T.V. $50.00 later, he is in Heaven and puts them on and takes them off like 10 times a day.
I sure hope they last a while....

This Saturday we will have his birthday party with my family at the park. I rented a Spongebob cake pan, this should be very interesting.I didn't plan on making the cake but my sister Tami thinks we should......oh my! Then today when Greyson and I checked the mail, there was a surprise from Rachel and Lorelai in there! Rachel made Greyson a shirt and crayon holder! What a sweetie! I love surprises! Here is a picture of him with both of them.

I am going to try to get back on the blogging bandwagon, but I can't make any promises....

Dressed and ready to go

in Daddy's shorts that is. It's so funny to watch him try to put Carlos' clothes on. He gets them on upside down and inside out. But he wants NO help with anything. He is big enough to do it all by himself.

He finally gave up and decided to use the shorts as a sleeping bag.

Then it was on like Donkey Kong..Greyson had way more than her.

Someone Must've Been A Good Boy

Easter was really fun! I loved watching Greyson get excited! This year he looked forward to the Easter Bunny coming. We went to Aunt Tam and Uncle Chris' house yesterday and hunted for eggs. I took tons of pictures of the hunt, but on Tami's camera....darn. So, not sure when I'll get all of those. We BBQ'd chicken and had pea salad, baked beans, green beans with potatoes and lots of sweets. Before we even got there Greyson fell in the yard and got dirt and grass on his pants...arghhhh. This is what he looked like before we walked out the door to go.

We spent the night at their house and I came home to let the dogs outside and the Easter Bunny had left this basket on the counter for Greyson....awww
When he saw it, he couldn't get to it fast enough. I just loved watching his face. So much fun!

He was checking it out big time. He got some race cars, baseball caps, a bunny ink pen, and tons of fattening candy. I say that because you know who will end up eating most of it.

Aunt Tam and Grammy both had baskets for him loaded with toys and candy. Aunt Tam bought this flute that makes the most beautiful music, can you see me making an annoyed face? Picture it if not.

I am not sure what he was doing here, but I thought he looked cute.

So far so good!

I thought potty training was going to be miserable, but so far I can handle it. We haven't quite gotten the #2 part down completely but almost. Up until the last two nights he has been going in his pull up or undies. I don't know how anyone could ever want to do cloth diapers. I can't stand cleaning his underoos out after he has an accident. That's hard to do, haha. All in all, he has done a really great job and I am very proud of him.

Easter is this Sunday and Greyson will get less that day because he saw his basket in the back of my car. DARNIT! I tried to hide it even. I got him a basket that had a basketball and a soccer ball. He has been stealing the neighbors basketball and bringing in the house. He loves it! Well anyway, I was putting him in his car seat and he says, "Mom, is that my basketball?" I was like oh crap. I told him that he would get it if he was a good little boy and that the Easter bunny was watching him. That lasted all of 10 minutes and Daddy came home, we gave in. Carlos was like, "He doesn't know the difference between today and Sunday." Sooooooo, he played all night with his basketball in the living room.

Anyway, that's all the boring news I have for now. Have a fantastic Easter! Remember what the day is all about.

Wish us luck!

It's time to start potty training Greyson. The thought has me exhausted already. I know it's time though. He has been wanting to take his diaper off every time he potties even one time in his diaper. Tonight we went to Walmart and bought him his very first pack of underoos!!! They are Thomas the Train, of course. He was so excited to have them on tonight. He wore them a total of about 2 hours and didn't potty in them once. In fact he used the bathroom like a big boy. He is really good about going to the bathroom on the toilet. He just hasn't learned to let us know when it's time to go to the bathroom. Usually he will come and get us after he has done his duty in the diaper already. So, wish us luck!

Also, we have finally gotten our bed back! He has been sleeping in his own bed now for about 2 weeks!!! YAY! I am sleeping much better!

Packed Movie Theater

This picture of Greyson reminds me of all the times I went to see a movie that was really packed and I had to sit in the front row and look up at the screen.

Can you add me to your prayers?

Things have been really tough here financially and I don't want to get into it. I just want to ask for some uplifting prayers. I have had a good cry tonight and to top it all off, I was looking for my cell phone and I found the washer. It's ruined. So, this has been a very tough day. Thank you for praying.
