Today my Glorious Grandmother (G-G) passed away peacefully in her sleep. I'm so sad to hear the news, but I know I will see her again someday. We had a close relationship and frequently had long conversations about life, love and everything in between. I know most of my design flair, dramatic story telling and creative talents came from G-G. Everyone tells me I'm a lot like her and she even told me that I reminded her of herself as a young woman. What a great compliment. I love you G-G, and will miss you so much!

Old Navy Shopping Spree

I'm so sick of wearing maternity clothes. Why can't I fit in my regular stuff? Shoot! I keep trying on my jeans hoping they will fit. Happy to say that I can at least get them on and button them, but if I bent over they might split in the rear end. And forget about wearing some of my old shirts...they don't even come close to fitting, oh the joys of nursing a baby! So...I gave in and went to Old Navy on a shopping spree. It was very fun and Felix was a great shopping partner (he slept the entire time!). Old Navy is having a huge spring sale and I got a boat load of new things for $100.00, of course I had to buy big girl sizes, but at least I'm in some new things and feel a bit more like my old self.

Don't Mess With Heber!

Okay, so my sis got a phone call from the principles office the other day. Heber was in the slammer! Guess this bully of a kid was pushing him around on the playground and Heber jumped his ass. Heber is a green belt in Tae Kwon-Do and he totally busted some moves. Watch out, Heber don't take no lip from anyone! Wish I could see a hidden video of what really went down.

More Felix

Here are some cute new pics of Felix!

Ukrainian Eggs

This past weekend Ashlie organized a Ukrainian Egg decorating day! It was so much fun. We have made Ukrainian eggs before, but it's been a few years. The boys were very detailed in decoration...Henry and Heber had sayings like "Mario" and "Luigi" on their eggs. If you've ever done batik before, it's the same concept-wax and color dyes. It's great because you can spend hours on one egg, but it will last forever....or until it accidentally breaks!

Dance like you've never danced before

Check Felix out!

Sleep Through The Static

Okay, I can't even tell you how much I love Jack Johnson. He is da bomb! His new album rocks- "Sleep through The Static". Thanks Sarah for burning me a copy. I've listened to it about a million times and I only just got it a few days ago. Ya know who also loves it?....Felix! I think he likes JJ so much because I listened to all his different albums while pregnant....A LOT! I was in the car and Felix got so mad and started to scream, so I slipped in the C.D. & all was calm. Sarah mentioned on her blog that Jack Johnson's music has such a summery sound, it's so true. I can't help but dream about Hawaii and summertime while listening, is that suntan oil I smell?
