Onesies for Kayla B

Here's the onesies that I made for Kayla B. She had her baby shower on Saturday. It was great to get too see old friends that I hadn't seen in years. Kayla is due in February and she is having a boy, it's her first. With these onesies I did fabric, and did letters for first and last name "J" and "M". But I also used iron ons and fabric ink with stamps for the first time. I really like doing them this way and it was really easy. I have a lot of new ideas can't wait to make more. If you would like any or know someone that would let me know. I really enjoy making them. I can also make them on T-shirts for older kids.

Writing her NAME- Alyssa

So Alyssa can WRITE her NAME. Something that Chad and I are very proud of. She has been able to say the letters in her first name since she was 2 and a half. And then could do the rest of her name by 3. So now that she is in school, and we knew this is something that they would start doing after Christmas break. So Chad and I both have been working with her for about a month now. And last week she got it!!!! She does really well and get a little discouraged when she makes her "y" and says it looks like and "x". So now that we have the first name down pretty good. She wants to write the rest of her name. So we have been writing Rene and Eash some. Which isn't too hard for her, we are very impressed with how much she wants to practice doing it. My big girl really is a big girl.

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my Dads Birthday,Happy Birthday Dad aka Pa-Pal. The girls and I made him a cake. And for dinner I'm making Pot Roast for him. On Monday we had some shopping to do and so I got the stuff to make the cake. So once we got home my Dad ask Alyssa if we bought him anything at the store? Alyssa told him ya were going to make you a cake. We were going to try and keep it a secret but oh well.
I love the fact the girls and I have gotten a close relationship with my Dad. I never really had one with him growing up. But these past two years have been nice to reconnect with him. Chad and I decide to move to Milford because my dad was going to pull RVS and didn't want the house to be empty. He also has a house in Florida so he's here, there, and everywhere. And also to get to see the close bond that he has with Alyssa and Chastity. If my Dad is here every night after dinner they get to watch a movie and eat pop-corn with Pa-Pal. So in the evening time it's almost like I don't have any kids for abut two hours. It's a nice to get to have a little time to myself or with Chad. They also enjoy playing doctor on Pa-Pal and giving him a flu shot.
We love you Dad, hope that you have a great birthday.

Happy Birthday Kim

Today is my sister Kim's Birthday. I called her this morning at 7:00am to wish her a Happy Birthday. She said that she had got my card in the mail yesterday but my nieces Abby said that she had to wait till today to open it. Because it wasn't really her Birthday till today.
My sister Kim is a wonderful mother, sister, friend, and can always give great advice. She has raised her two daughters the way that I will raise mine. She is someone that I have grown to look up too. If I can be the mom that she is then I know I have became a wonderful mother myself.
I love you sis hope that you have a great day.

Gift form Ali

Sorry that it's taken me so long to post the gift from Ali. I love it, I haven't found a safe place for it yet. I'm a little afraid that it might break so I still have it put away in the box but open it and look at it everyday. Knowing that when Ali bought this back in April that she thought she would be the one to give it to me. I'm so happy that she bought it ahead of time and now I have one last gift from her. Heather and Kim also received one too. There called Friendship Balls and they came with a little note attache to them. This is what it reads.

This Friendship ball is a symbol of our friendship. It is never ending circle that sparkles in the light the way you bring sparkle to my life. The colors swirl and mingle enhancing each other just as we do. This treasure is handmade. It is unique, just like you.

5 months

Today is 5 months that Ali left to be with our maker. There has been very hard days, hard hours, and hard minutes. There were days when as soon as I woke my first thought was her. Now that days has become months, my thoughts of Ali are still there but I don't always break down when the thought of her comes into my head. Don't take me wrong I still have BAD days. But I'm also learning to remember Ali in not such SAD ways more and more everyday. You really don't know how much one person means the most to you or you rely on them until there gone. I know that I have said this before she was more then a sister she was my best friend, person that I went to for advice and most of all my HERO. I also am still trying and learning more and more WHY she had to go. WHY she had to have cancer, I'm trying not to be so anger about it. I do know that writing this is EASIER said then done. But I do know for me to better myself and give all that I can give to my family that I have to learn how to deal with this better then I have been.
I miss her voice, her smile and her comfort. Alyssa has been asking about Ali a lot these pass days. She talks about her at least once a day but now these past days it's been 4 or 5 times a day. She tells me that she talks her but she doesn't talk back and that she can't see her anymore. She used to tell me that she could see her. So Chad and I think that, this is why she is asking about so much and crying for her. Chastity still says that Auntie Ali is in Heaven mommy. Losing someone is one of the hardest things in life but I do hope that once it's my time she will be there waiting for me. I love you ALI
