Today is suppose to be in the 70s again so I am going riding on the vespa. I did take it out yesterday it was fabulous it was the first time this season I didn't have to wear a coat. I had a sweatshirt on and when I was stopped I was a lil toasty. Once the light went green though the cool breeze was refreshing. Summer is right around the corner :)

Happy Birthday Mom!!!

MOM HAPPY _ _st BIRTHDAY!!! Have fun in Sin city.... Enjoy the sun for the both of us! I love you lots and I hope that you have the best day ever. I hope the next year is your best year yet! Thanks for being so fabulous, I am so lucky to have you as my mom!! XOX

PS Don't celebrate the day with any Irish car bombs ;)



It is April 24th and it is snowing outside... Where is the sun? Of course the only reason it is dumping out there is because I happened to wash my car yesterday. A lot of good that did....

O well one good thing is the air will be clean for the weekend. It is supposed to hit 74 by Monday so keep your fingers crossed, because the vespa is gathering dust and the babies are getting restless and my vitamin D level is at a all time low :)

Almost all the college roomies got together yesterday for lunch we were just missing Steph. It was fun to get together and have a mini 844 reunion! Nat, Mistie and Canz thought it was just gong to be the 4 of us but Kell and I were surprising them. Kell came a bit later and we pulled it off. She is in town for a couple weeks so it worked out perfect!!

We even got to hang with sweet lil Seneka she is so cute and such great baby congrats Mistie!
I think we may have even gotten a Well out a Kell and a Stop Now out of Mistie and Nat and I got a pic together overall it was a great day! Can't wait to get together again soon!!!!

Help Make the Month of May be even better!

Bills to recognize May as National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month have been introduced in both the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

To pass the Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Resolution--and help us find a cure or control for CF--members of Congress need to understand what it means to have the disease. You are their most important resource. Members of Congress will back our efforts because YOU ask them to.

Ask your member of Congress to sign on to the CF Awareness Resolution today!

Thanks for your support!!

Nothing better then a Sunday nap

Sun after we did some work around the house and some serious ball playing we snuggled up on the couch and took a much needed nap! Lilly made herself nice and cozy right on top of me and Oscar snuggled in on my side.

Wow 30 years ago today you were born.... On your very first Bday the pic with you and mom and dad dressed up as a clown. I am surprised you aren't screaming in fear!! Although you have always liked clowns. Remember when I was hanging from the clown shelf in your room and they all came tumbling to the ground. I must of been such a pain in your ass :) But you always seemed to love me no matter what!!! Thanks bro for all your support and love throughout the years. I could and can always count on you to have my back. 

You have grown up to be such a great guy...So responsible, a fabulous husband, and an AMAZING Dad!! You are so cute with Makena and she loves you so very much!! I am so proud of you bro! Thanks for being the bestest Big Bro a girl could have. Happy 30th Birthday!! Cheers, to 30 great years........ and so many more to follow.

♥Hard Candy♥

YAY!!!! I am so excited!!!!!!!!!!!  Madonna's new Album "HARD CANDY" is in stores April 29th.  You can pre-order it now onAmazon. Her first single to be released is titled 4 minutes, featuring Justin Timberlake. 4 minutes is available on itunes now!!!

Bath day!!

Well They are not to happy with me but Oscar is so handsome and Lilly is so petty now! At first they get very excited and they jump right in....

Half way through Lilly jumps out with suds all over and then Oscar tries to escape too. But he is not as quick as Lilly it could be the extra 12 lbs or so. But they are both smelling like mint. 

Oscar absolutely hates getting toweled off. He bites at the towel and started doing a  yelp/scream/singing tune every time the towel gets close.

 I will try to video it next time. 

The real trick is to see if I can bath them without getting drenched myself. Today I was soaked thanks to my escapee. Lilly is a nut!

Today is Nates Bday too! I don't think he could of asked for a better gift.

What a Miracle!

UPDATE: The surgery was a success!!! She should be off the vent later today or tomorrow, and breathing with her new lungs.... Please still keep her and her family and the donors family in your prayers.
