This week over at i heart faces they are talking about Contemplative faces. I was snapping away some pics and let Gabs watch his fave cartoons as I did. One can only wonder what the Gabster was thinking while watching his Max and Ruby. I however got this awesome shot with this cute face! You can tell that he is defiantly thinking about something!

Week 35 - “Back To School” Photo Challenge!

This weeks contest at i heart faces is Back to School! I chose this pic of my little guy Gavin Jon's first day of Pre-School. This pic sums up his emotions on his first day! He was not quite sure how to take being away from Mommy! I ended up spending the first hour there and sneaking when he got into playing with a puzzle! I felt like such a bad Mommy but I knew he had to learn to be there by himself! He now enjoys going to school and thinks he is such a big boy!

Check out more Back to School pic here ...

Week 33 - “Nostalgia”

This pic was taken at Give Kids the World a place in FL. for children with special needs to stay while on their Make A Wish trips to DisneyWorld.  I chose this pic because it brings back so many wonderful memories we had their as a family. 

For the first time in a loooooooooong time we did not have to worry about Chemo treatments, Blood Transfusions. MRIs,CT Scans. or any other crazy Surgery or Test. We had such a great time that week in FL. Gavin got to be himself and not worry about the scars covering his arm or the spot on his chest next to his heart where his Central (Lifeline) Line had once been. 

He played with precious children who were in wheelchairs, and a Beautiful little Lady who was sporting the "Chemo" hairdo he once had. At this special place however there were no illneses only beautiful children running and playing and laughing at all the wonders GKTW has to offer. 

Everytime I look at these pictures I tear up remembering all the wonderful times that were had that week and all the great memories that were made.

To see more wonderful pics go on over to iheart faces! There are some real talented Mommy's over there ......

P.S To go with the theme of this week this place is made to look like a cross between Alice in Wonderland and the game CandyLand! The ice Cream Parlor in which this pic was taken in has a HUGE CandyLand game board mounted in a frame on the wall. It is truly a magical place to stay!

“Let’s Hear It For The Boys!” Photo Challenge

Oh wow this is hard! I have soooooooooooo many pics of my boys that I love! But here is the one I chose. This was taken from Gavin Jon's Make A Wish trip. It was his very first time seeing Mickey! He was so overjoyed and ran to him and hugged him tight. It brought tears to my eyes seeing him this Happy and knowing that there had once been a chance when he may of not had a day like this day.

Oh what a day ... so far!

This morning I get a text from Nic's "father" saying he will not be able to get with Nic today and wants to reschedule for Tuesday. This of course broke Nic's heart seeing as he worked really hard on his Fathers Day card practicing his cursive even! He had planned on spending the day with his "dad" on Fathers Day. So I had to deal with a mini breakdown from him this morning.

Then this afternoon Gabs decides to sneak out the back gate and take Toto with him!! Gabs was down to the end of the back of our Condos and Toto was around the bend of the Condos in our Neighbors front yard. Both are home safe and sound but boy am I shook up! I swear with Gabs you just turn your back a second and he is gone and into something! He is defiantly my Little Fiesty Man! 

And just think it is only 2:30 so we still have a lil over 6 hours before bedtime! Oh what else could happen?!

Please pray .....

Please say a prayer for my family. Tomorrow my Mom goes in for her second Kidney biopsy to see if the Kidney she has had since I was 16 is starting to reject. If it is then back to dialyisis and maybe another transplant all over again. This is hard to take because she has done everything she was supposed to do to take care of this kidney.

On top of this we got the great news that my Dad got an awesome apartment. The only thing is he is moving tomorrow! And I have to help him with the paperwork and stuff because of his Dementia. 

As always I can never ask my Brother to help. I love my Brother but, let's face it if it does not benefit him he could care less. Sigh ... So much to do and worry about and never enough time to do it!

Sad to see you go ...

Well I guess I should post my piece now about DC closing. I am really upset that it has come to this. Due to someone's immaturity a whole site of WONDERFUL people have to lose out. 

I also got my first taste of these so called Scrap Smack Blogs! Oh my call me nieave but I never knew they exsisted. Now I know in the real world not everyone gets along or likes the same stuff but, this was RIDICULOUS! So called grown women acting like they were in High School again. Oh well I guess if doing this makes them feel young again so be it. I just know that I will be staying as far from all of that drama as I can! 

I hope to keep in touch with all of my DC Gals. Where ever this Scrap World may take them. I myself will have to find a new place to post I have a place in mind where I know some of the Gals and everyone seems fairly friendly so we shall see.
