Amber's party

June 7th Amber had her graduation party!  It was a total success!  Lots of people came, had lots of fun, we even had a bounce house that i thought was going to be a waste of money, but honestly it was the best part of the party...Everyone was in it and had a ball!!  So Proud of her!!  

 This was the set up...before guests arrived...

 guests arriving!!

I couldn't of been happier with the turn out...everyone that i wanted there was there!!!  

June 8th was my birthday, I turned 44!  It was also clean up day...I had a relaxing day, after everything was neatly put away...

Little of this and that!

Got a few things to update ya on...1.  This is my new vehicle...2011 chevy traverse and I love it...It's getting a new radio tomorrow because for some reason the one in it keeps jumping to auxillary input device...So that got ordered today and installed tomorrow..  It drives like a dream.  Never going back to a small car...What was i thinking!!!
 2.  I was feeling cute on this day...love the new me!!  This was the real me trapped inside the whole time!!!  Doing everything i can to keep it that way!!!
 3.  This month was really hard on me...I went into a deep depression at the start of the month and I couldn't figure out why...Friends at work and online kept saying what is wrong with you.."you seem distant, not yourself".  Well it took me a few days to figure out that around May is when mom went down hill.  May 1st her doctor put her in the hospital  and it was her and my fathers wedding anniversary.  May 2nd they found out she had 5  blockages to the heart. May 5th she had triple bypass surgery and the 7th was her 65th birthday and then of course it was Mother's day!  So I think subconsciously I put my myself into a deep depression...But now that i am realizing it I think things are better...But it still going to be a hard couple months for me...because as of June 22nd will mark the day that she stopped breathing on her own and then July 2nd will mark her third year that she is no longer with us.  D.E.P.R.E.S.S.I.N.G.!!!

There is not a day that I don't miss her.  Wishing she was still her for her guidance..Amber is graduating soon and really hate the fact that she missed both kids walking the stage for their diplomas...Of course I know she was there and will be there for Amber too.  But still not the same!!

This picture is of my mom when she graduated high school!!!  She was so beautiful!!!  I so wished her life was better than it had turned out...She deserved it!!  But she chose the hard and rocky path, but her gain was her children and her grandchildren!   She would be so proud of her grand kids...Darin working on his 3rd year of college starting in August.  Darin also got a letter from College stating that he is on the Deans list for 2013!!!  So very pround of my boy!!!...Amber choosing to be a nurse..

.Her other grandchildren doing so well in school. Sarah, is doing great in school and is now going to be in marching band...She is so very talented with her coronet!!  I got the opportunity to watch her and her 2 other band mates play for regionals and was accepted into states and won!!!  And her grandson Matthew is doing very well with his grades also, is is a wiz on the computer!!  I know mom is looking down and is very proud!!

 This picture is the hanging basket my daughter Amber got me for Mother's day :)
 This picture was of my mother and father and me!!!  leaving the hospital.   Just some throw backs that touch my heart!
 This is the other gift from my wonderful daughter for mother's day :)
 Darin got me this for mother's day...ya, i'm a little spoiled :)   He says he's getting me something else but it has to wait.....He don't have to give me nothing but his love....Love my kids!!  They are my rock!! The reason i keep going!!
No post will do without showing off my little Spencer.  He's so smart!! Ok  This link is of Spencer knowing his body parts!!  such a cute video!!!

Hope you enjoy...And I hope that everyone Had a fantastic Mother's Day!!!

A quick note!!

Hey there peeps...I realize ya'll have prolly stopped reading this...And I can't say that I don't blame ya...lol
But believe it or not I still drop by :)....Stupid facebook is just so much easier to keep up..

Time just slips on past...Can you believe my baby girl is graduating in just a couple weeks???? No?  neither can I!!!!  We set the date for her party it's going to be June 7th!  I'm hoping it's a big success like her brother Darin's!

I'm so proud of Amber, her grades this year have been excellent!!  She really has shown that she is serious about what she wants to be...I enrolled her in college which if you asked me last year i was not going to do!!  Because she wasn't bringing me the grades i wanted to see.  But she has decided that she wants to be a nurse, and wants to either work with babies or in hospice she says...I'm so proud...I had figured her to work with kids....always have...She is a caring soul!  And since kindergarten every teacher has said she is very motherly...so i can see her doing either one of those.

We still see our little Spencer!  I love that kid!! I hope that we will always have some kind of contact with him...He's almost 2 now and he's been apart of our lives since before birth!!!

Ok i would post some more pics of Spencer, but stupid blogger won't let me cuz i didn't do it all at one time...

In other news
I finally paid off the cruise i had crashed up...Went out a week later and purchased a 2011 Chevy Traverse!!  I'm in love with it!!  I never want a little car ever again!! lol  I wold post pics of that also, but it will have to wait till the next post because i did not do it all at once...I would have thought blogger would have been easier...lol

Well i'm off to crash for the night...Take care everyone...
