I'm going to miss him this weekend! He has been working like a crazy lawyer, but extremely proud of how hard he works for us (his little family) and provides us with everything we need. He just opened his own practice, but still working part time for a lawyer in loomis. He is loving it! Things are going so well for us and hopefully, soon, we will have our own home.
The baby and I are leaving tomorrow morning to go to Truckee, to stay with my best friend from high school and her beautiful little family. We are so excited to get away for the weekend. Also joining, are my two other best friends, Rachel and Paige. All our kids are going and it's going to be a full house. How nice of Lindsey and Pete to invite us to their cabin. I feel cool leaving Yuba and getting away to relax, and just be with some of my closest friends. I'm planning on wearing no makeup, eating everything in sight, sitting by a fire, turning my phone off, catching up on life, and wearing uggs everyday! I think the last time us girls did a trip together was 10 years ago, when we were in our college days, and drove to Santa Cruz to visit Lindsey, so this trip is definitely a treat for all of us. I know we won't be doing anything we did 1o years ago though... Ha! Too bad there won't be any snow in the mountains! Such a bummer. Steve is leaving for Reno with his cousin and a few friends, so it works out perfect! Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I know I will. Happy Friday.
I'm back!!! I was kind of over the whole blogging thing, since all my family has facebook now and with instagram, I felt like blogging was just one more thing to take me away from my precious family. But I gave in and decided to do a few posts. We will see how long I last. So much has gone on. I lost my amazing dad to cancer. All I can say is, life is truly so precious! He went fast. 5 weeks is all we had, but we were all with him when he passed and I know he is pain free and in heaven. I miss him so bad and wish he was here. I think about him daily, sometimes hourly, and sometimes I feel sick knowing he is really gone. I know I will see him again. That gives me comfort. I can't wear black everyday, can't sleep in all day, can't cry all the time and can't be depressed. I have a family and life does goes on. My dad would want me to go on and not be sad. I think having a child helps and the power of prayer.
My baby turned 2! With my dad passing so close to her birthday, I truthfully didn't want to do anything, but for her I had to have a party. And I know my dad would have wanted me to have a great party for her. So we quickly did. It was an ice cream sundae party and turned wonderful. I know the birthday girl had a ball. All the kids loved making their own sundaes with all different choices of toppings.
Thanksgiving was awful. We cried the whole day and just stared at each other. Christmas came and went, but I was happy. I wasn't in any Christmas spirit. My niece turned 5 and had a fabulous princess party! Harper Jaymes will be here in 9 weeks and we can't wait to smell her and kiss her chubby checks.
Happy New Year! We stayed home partied with a 2 year old. I made an amazing dinner and I think we were all asleep by 10. I loved it and wouldn't want it any other way.
2012 is going to be great! I have a wonderful family, amazing friends, a healthy child, and so blessed!
I cropped myself out. I have swollen eyes and look huge!
