With only a few days left before Christmas, our house has been anything but quiet. Gina and I have both been sick so Tony has been doing much of the shopping. Trying to get baking, cleaning, shopping and wrapping done while sick...not that easy. The other day as I was laying on the couch pretty much suffering from a horrible sinus infection, Kenny wanted his shoes on. He was in my feverish face signing "shoes"...nonstop. When that didn't work, he went and grabbed his shoes and threw them at. I told him that he didn't need to wear them and I wasn't going to put them on him and put the shoes on the floor. The next thing I know, my little man, the one that doctors told us may never walk, is putting them on himself! THATS MY BOY!! I am so very proud of how far he's come and what he is doing for himself these days! Three years ago he surprised us with walking...now he's putting his own shoes on! God really has blessed us!
Well, I finally did it....a little late...but none-the-less, I ordered our family Christmas cards. I always have used Shutterfly so I am just sending a little shout out to Shutterfly for a great selection (as always) and also for Pampers Gifts to Grow...yes, I still have a trillion points from when the kids were younger and it just so happened that I used a little of the points to order the cards...YAY ME!
As with the prior years, I was starting to have a hard time fitting everyone in the picture...in our small living room (by the tree), so I opted for a different venue this year...outside at a town square that was decorated very cute! Now, as you can see, there was a little interesting change to the pictures this year...I now have full blown teenagers (dun...dun...dun...) so a certain someone wasn't too thrilled to pose this year. Ya know what I have to say about that? Pthhhhhh! tee hee.
I am a SAHM who has been married to Tony (my soul mate) for over 15 years.
I am a twin and so is my husband. We are both artists, have 6 siblings (just the exact opposite)and now we have 7 beautiful living children and 8 angels (7 from miscarriages and Nick, Kenny's twin, who passed away 2 days after birth from complications to extreme prematurity. All of my children were born @ 34 weeks, except for the twins, they were 23 weekers and my last daughter, who was born at 36 weeks!
My family is my life! I have 6 amazing sisters and 1 brother (who is now taking care of my son Nick and my miscarried babies in heaven for me). Now I know why John died 24 years ago...it was to prepare my family and I for Nick's passing...and to be there for Nick.
I love gardening...every year I go nuts and plant a huge garden. I love jewelry and headpiece designing. My dream is to one day own my own bridal headpiece and custom jewelry boutique!
I love all crafts, painting, drawing, digital scrap booking, photography and...well...I just love to be creative.
