Life is not measured by the number of

breaths we take, but by the number of

moments that take our breath away.

Today is Mothers day, for it I received a plaque from Jessica and Brian, an Aqua Cell pool float and a beach towel from Randee and Beegh, I also received a beach towel from Wyatt and Jenny ( do you think they are all thinking about the pool we are building?)
Danny gave me a dozen roses and a gift card to Olive Garden.
My last gift I got was to talk to my youngest son Kyle on is mission in Mexico. He is doing great!! This will be the last time I talk to him before he comes home. 15.5 weeks to go. Thank you all for being great kids I love all the gifts you gave me. But most of all I love the great examples you are for me, and the wonderful people you have grown up to be. I LOVE ALL OF YOU! XOXO

Friday May 9th labor continues on and off. Jessica took a nap and felt pretty good 6:36 pm I get a call," my water broke and I am going to the hospital." She had called Brian No turning back now.
7:45 PM they arrive at the hospital and she had Graham at 8:01PM The staff at the hospital never even got an IV in her, Jessica hates the iv's She said they hurt more than labor. She is CRAZY!!!!From arrival to the Hospital until delivery of Graham, was 16 min.

I love my Grandkids

I love my three Grand kids, by the end of the year there will b 6. Crew has moved to St Louis with his mom and dad. Summer is here and it is time to Sell security systems for Wyatt. He works for 3-4 months and makes enough money to live on all winter Good luck this year. Today Weston and Bristol came to my house to play in Nana's playroom I have made for the grand kids. I purchased a Pottery Barn three piece kitchen in red. As a child always wanted a play kitchen ( my mother never listened to my plea for one) so I bought one for myself. I also have a child size table and chairs. There is a big screen TV on the wall ( for baby Einstein) and 2 over stuffed chairs to sit in and enjoy a movie or cartoons. I think I made the room for myself. Bristol and Weston had a ball in the room playing with the pots,pans,play food and just hanging out up there. I am thoroughly exhausted now. What a great day! Jessica informed me that 3 miles down the road both of the kids were asleep.
