Birthdays, Valentines, Cavaliers...Oh My!


Here's the hizzity happity happenings of the past few weeks...




HAPPY BIRTHDAY JADEN!!!








How do I have a 7 year old? I mean I must have been 10 when I had him! The Friday before his actual b-day he had a cousin's only Slumber party. For the first few hours we had almost all of the cousins, it did get a wee bit crazy laddy, but then just the "older" cousins slept over. The night was full of Pizza, cake, presents, games & more sugar. The funnest part was to see Jaden enjoying every bit of it. I am so proud of Jaden & what a good bud he is! Birthday wishes must also be extended to my Madre who Jaden shares his birth date with. Yes, my Mom did get to spend her birthday 7 years ago in a delivery room with me, watching me try to PUSH HIM OUT, PUSH HIM OUT, WAAAAY OUT! for three hours, to then just have me be wheeled out for an emergency C-Section? WHAT! He ended up being a big butterball weighing in @ 10 lb 2 oz! Who would have guessed it? Oh me, that's right, just don't try to tell my doctor, who decided to let me go over my due date by a week! He'd already obviously cooked enough in my oven, Dr. Hutchinson. But, oh la, it's 7 years later & I have a dashing young fella to show for it. If I still sound bitter towards my awful first OBGYN, well, I'm not going to answer that now, but I will warn anyone & everyone to NEVER give him business! I'm done, & sorry that I veered off course, Jaden I love you more than anything & I would go through that a zillion more times just to have you in my life!





Next, it was Valentines time! This year we made boxes as a family & put Valentines in them for each other leading up to the big day. The kids loved it! Mike & I got to go on a fun day date the day of & we went to Red Robin & then the movie "Taken", it was good. I'd give it 3 and a quarter stars out of 5.




Next up, my parents took us to see King James at the Cav's-Jazz game! It was really fun seeing him dunk that biznis in person. Mike got the sweetest picture of him throwing the chalk in the air. We could frame it & sell it on e-bay for millions....


Thanks to all of my well wishers out there while I went under the knife this past week. In case some of you didn't know I went in and got my boobs reduced & butt implants, all is looking well so far.... Oh wait, that's not what I had done, I just went in & had my Endomytriosis (sp?) removed, but that doesn't sound as exciting. I'm doing good, now let's put out "Baby Vibes" into the Universe for Sister Laura shall we?

you are so funny! I hope you are feeling better today. So I taped the oscars and guess what, right when it gets to the last 3 minutes and they are about to hand out all the big awards. IT STOPPED RECORDING! I was angered, but I just hopped on line and found out who won and am glad that I missed Sean penn's speech. Well hopefully, I will have better luck recording the Bachelor tonight.

I'm glad to hear all went well with your surgery. I talked to your mom a little at the Heber trip and she said you were doing well. Keep us updated with the news.

Now that I think about it, something about you did seem a little "off" on Sunday. Sorry if this is aughquard.

That was very brave of you to have all of the cousins over at one time! Kudos to you. Happy Birthday Jaden! Oh, and I guess that going under the knife was kinda brave too . . . I'm definitely sending the vibes your way.
