Ok, I know it has been awhile since I last posted but I kept telling myself if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.

Quick rundown on the past few weeks…the ups and downs

The surprise went off without a hitch. My mom was so surprised and was about in tears. It was a lot of fun to pull something off like that. My little sisters were really surprised as well, the only one who figured it out and had no reservations running up to whom the rest of them thought to be strangers was Molly. The kids had a blast playing with all their cousins, aunts and uncles and it was fun to see snow again.

My moms wedding ended up getting called off the night before due to the groom getting cold feet. I won’t say any more!

It was a lot of fun to stay with my sister Mindy. I have never spent that much time with her and I feel closer to her now. It was so much fun to see her two little girls. They are soooo cute and I miss them a ton. Adeline let me put her to bed one night and when I started her bedtime story of “fancy girls” and princesses she immediately stopped me and told me to tell her a story about wolves that scratch. I could not stop laughing.

My cousin Brandon’s baby McKenzie passed away while I was out there. She was only 15 months old and had been battling leukemia for the last 6 months. It was so sad, my heart just breaks when I think about it but I was glad that I was able to go the funeral.

All in all it was a good tip but we were glad to come back home. We missed Jeremy and the kids were anxious to get back to school. I guess one this is for sure; you can always count on my family to keep things interesting!
