What up Ma...... Just because he is too stinkin CUTE!!!


I finally decided to post something NEW.... and it's already OLD! lol..

I figured I would start with Halloween... My little buddy was Frankenstein...I felt really bad because Joey was puking the night before and that morning, however.. I forced him into his costume and then kicked him outside to bring me back some candy. I also told him that he better not come back unless there were Snickers bars in that bucket!

Here is little Frankenstien feverishly looking for at least one measly little snickers bar to apease is it turns out, our neighbors are JERKS, because not ONE Snickers.... I had to settle for a Milkyway instead.......crap!
Next time we'll tell the old lady to keep her Milkyways.....Just Kidding. Our neighbor, she is like a 100! But, she loves Joey, so we had to stop. He was figuring out how this trick-or-treating thing works. And yes, I took him trick-or-treating in my slippers.

Breast Cancer Fundraiser

On Monday Red Bar and Winery in Elgin and I, hosted a fundraiser to raise money for the Susan G. Komen 3-day for Breast Cancer. I have to raise $2300 minimum to walk. I am about 75% there. If you are able to make a donation, please click on the widgit on the right side of my blog. All donations are VERY MUCH appreciated!

If you can, pass this on to other people as well... :-)

Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure

/strong>I have taken on an incredible challenge. On August 6,7,&8 I'll be walking 60 miles over the course of three days, camping out at night with thousands of other women and men taking this journey with me.

It's for an event called the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. Net proceeds from the Komen 3-Day for the Cure are invested in breast cancer research and community programs. Komen for the Cure® works hard to build a future without breast cancer, and I plan on raising $2300.00 to help bring us closer to that goal.

Please consider making a donation of $50. If you can't give this amount please make a donation to which you can afford.

I am doing this walk in support and in honor of my Aunt Suzzann, who is a 5 year survivor.

One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. That's why I'm walking in the 3-Day for the Cure. Because everyone deserves a lifetime.

Just follow the link on the right to visit my personal fundraising Web page and make a donation. If you don't want to donate online, please download and print a donation form from my Web page and mail it to the address on the form. Or you can call 800-996-3DAY to donate over the phone. I would like to reach my fundraising goal by August 2nd, so don't delay!

Thank you for taking the time to read this and thank you for your support.


P.S. Don't wait - donate today!

It sNOw fun......

I decided to take Joey out in the snow for the first time. Not sure how he felt about it. He kind of just sat there, then tipped over. We were out there for about 5 minutes. But just before we were going in, Joe came home from work. Just in time for the excitement.

This blogging thing is soooo frustrating!!!

So, I decided to update the look and pictures....why are they so freakin small!? Any clues...? Any one...?

Can you believe it........An UPDATE!

I figured the least I could do was update the blog, I only spent an hour loading about a thousand pictures on to my computer.

I'm cracking up because as I look, my last post was in July and my peanut was 5 months! We are creeping up on a year. OH DEAR GOD!

Here are some Christmas pictures. I really need to get better at taking pictures. I swear all mine look like crap.

Christmas morning we opened presents, we meaning Joe and I. Joey could care less. Didn't care about the paper, the boxes, nothing. We helped him open his gift and he quickly sped away hoping that I left the bathroom door open. Since I didn't, he decided he would reek havoc in another way, dumping my fresh cup of HOT coffee all over the coffee table. grrrr.......

Oh yeah, these are in no order whatsoever.... I give up with that. Anyway, we spent Christmas Eve at Uncle Tony's and Auntie Karen's house. This is a family tradition, and after we eat and drink, Auntie Karen passes out the Christmas Carols and we sing until Santa arrives. The hour before (every year) we run around frantic trying to talk one of the MEN into being santa. This year, it was Bobby. He did a good job.

What is can't be....Oh my gosh it IS.... a picture of Mommy AND Joey!!!!! Can you beleive it! And I believe the picture happened something like this.

Joe: Babe give me the camera and go stand by the tree. I'm getting a picture of you so you stop complaining that there aren't any pictures of you and the baby.

Me: Now? We just got here.

Joe: GO!

Me: fine, take my coat.

Nice huh.

Eating some crackers, looking as cute as ever!!! Ignore the shoes, I could not find black shoes in his size for anything less than $30. So, brown "work boots" it is... What evs.....

Christmas at Nana and Papa's.... Joey and his cousin Macie reading books. Oh wait, this one is the bully snatching the book from his cousin.

like I said, no order.... Joey and cousin Bobby, um....uh...Santa. He could care less that I put him on his lap. He just looked at him, then stole his bells. The kid has no fear. NONE.
