40 for 40…

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

Guess what I am 40, and I am not ashamed. There is nothing wrong with being forty it has got to be better than my 20’s and 30’s. My 20’s were spent in school and trying to have a baby. My 30’s were spent in school and trying to adopt a baby. I am not sure what I will do in my 40’s since I am done with both school and growing my family. (more…)

Vacation Recap- June 24, 2008

Saturday, June 27th, 2009

WOW- Madilyn turned 1 . I can not believe that she has been part of our life for almost a year. A year ago today she was born and I had no idea that my life would be forever changed. It is kind of strange to have a child and not know anything about their
birth or first week of life. I wish that I could have been there when she was born and that I could have known her from her first moments in life. However, I am thankful that she is now a part of our family.
Our morning was spent getting ready for Madi’s 1st birthday party. Caleb’s b-day is on the 25th of June so we celebrated the birthdays together with a family BBQ.
The party was fun but lasted way too long. My family did not leave until around 11:00 pm. We were all very tired and ready for the day to end. Madilyn and Caleb were both spoiled by all of our family members.
The day was also the first time in about 11 years that ALL of my sister were together. The last time all six of us were together was when Caleb was around 2 years old. We all came together for the funeral of Grandma Matthews. We tried to get a picture of all of us together, with 4 cameras and about 100 shots, only one turned out decent.

Great Week

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Last week was a wonderful but busy week. First we had David’s b-day, then our 18th wedding anniversary and ended the week with Mother’s Day.

For David’s b-day we stayed in and invited a co-worker of his for dinner along with his wife Laura and thier son Bo. We had a great time with them. It is too bad that they live in MN and were only in town for the week.

We both took off work on our anniversary. This has been our tradition since our first year of marriage. The day was busy, because for the 1st year ever we had to focus on things other than us on this special day. Madilyn had a doctors appointment and I had to get my tire and rim replaced on my van. So the morning was shot. We ended up having a late breakfast/early lunch and then just going home and vegging out watching a movie. Thankfully we have found a reliable sitter for Madilyn so we were able to leave the kids at home and go to dinner. At dinner we reflected on our early years together and how much we have grown as a couple and a family.

We had a nice Mother’s Day. We never go out to eat on this day. The resturants are entirely too crowded. So David grilled up some nice steaks and I baked some potatoes. I would rather spend time in my home than in a loud resturant. It was our first Mother’s Day with Madilyn. Last year we had given up hope of having another child and then she came along. I have more to say about this but will save it for another post.

Caleb is 12

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Yesterday Caleb turned 12. Boy do I feel old. David took Caleb to a Braves game, while I was at my training sessions. The Braves won. Which is good. Caleb takes it personally when he goes to a game and they don’t win. We went out for a family dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. All in all Caleb had a good B-day.

Earlier in the week he had a party with other family members while he was in FL. He enjoyed being able to share his b-day with his cousins.

I just wish that Caleb did not have the attitude of a 12 year old. Gotta love the middle school aged child.
