How can you not have a wopnderful day when you get to see this little bug first thing.?
Our friends in SanDiego have their gransdon living with them - Leslie and Steve, I am so envious that you get this joy daily. I am sure there are days when little Caleb does not have his 'happy face" on first thing - but I am telling you - I would quit my job if I won the lottery to see this little guy every morning...I am not sure if my husband could be able to stand it - but little people just keep me young at heart.
Grandma loves you Patrick, very much.......

March 21 and March 22

Well, the clean-out has had a good start - I did get the great room done and a good start on the kitchen. I figure it did not get this cluttered in one week so it will take me a bit longer - But it will be done by the middle of April - no trips planneed and I can spend some time at home cleaning at night. So pictures, right, here we go

The Great BIG Clean out

Well, most of you know that so far 2009 has been a bit taxing on Katie - while the move out of Clift Street was hard - we made it kind of fun, didn't Debbie and Sue - well that is done - so what's next - the clean out or at least some sort of organization of 3199 Durham Road - I am proud to say that it is happening, albeit, very slowly, but our houseguest is gone and the cleaning has started.

I am on vacation this week, so I am trying to get as much done as I can in the this allowed - Yesterday was rearranged a bit - but I got to spend time with my "little man" and then cleaning and moving was done. I think I have some before pictures that I will post first - PLEASE know that this week I may be a bit slower in posting, but wait till ya see the finshed project.......

Thia is one of the before shots

This is another before shot

Tonight you will get to see some more before shots and then some after shots - Have to get cleaning.......

Today, Patrick, Mommy and Grandma went on a field trip to NH to see Aunt Betsy and Aunt Jennifer - we had such a great time - I love having my girls together alone and while it wa a short visit, it makes me realize how happy I am to be the mother of these young women.... On the way home, Master patrick didn't want to sit in the back by himself - so I got this shot of him sleeping - he mist have been dreaming of the great lunch he had with "his harem"....

Well we had a lot of snow yesterday and this is the picture of the cars at the train station in the morning. Rumor has it, that the weather is going to be warm later this week - the 50"s

Wednesday March 4

Well, today is little people art day at Katie's office. I get to put up 4 pictures today and hopefully it will make up for not blogging yesterday - but I may still do that.

So we have a picture from my buddy Hunter who surprised me today by visiting me after his doctor's visit downstairs - he promised me a new picture soon - so when I get that one I will post it for Hunter.

Next I have 3 pictures, two are from my Katie Bear in North Carolina and one is from Garrett, her little brother. Katie, thank you for my mail, it was fun getting your pictures.

Thank you my little friends - you all make me very happy

Well, helping Becca clean her house was extremely exhausting for Patrick and me - so we had to take a little snooze - I love this picture - Patrick is such a snuggle bug..................

Sorry about that guys

Really, life has been a tad bit hectic and I did not remember putting Kathy's picture in Zuu twice - I am sorry - How about tomorrow I do Picture one and Picture two.........

I've been busy with lots of things going on in this crazy head of mine so I will take it off tonight, re-screw it on and get my act in gear........

Happy snow day to those of you who had a snow day today.......

Okay, so on our way home from NC we saw this and it was well, "a sign" - who loves you Pepsi.......Katie does. We had about an 11.5 hour ride home - hardly any traffic until the Garden State.......There will be a long blog about the whole trip. I had a blast with bubbles, her friends, jenny, Brian, Ian and Master Will and the Briglia bunch - But I have to admit it was nice sleeping with the snoring in surround sound last night -

Monday February 23

Today is the anniversary of Mom's death and I celebrated it as she would want us to celebrate her life - I spent time with Kathy, Jim and my favorite little people, beside patrick - but these 2 talk so it was kind of fun.........I just feel like I am a queen when I am with them.
We were making bracelets for Katie and Garrett - she was a BIG help and even got me other beads that were more for a boy that the purple ones I brought. Thank you Katie - Love and miss you....

You can't really see him but this lady brings her dog to work with her every day. They take a walk at lunchtime. I think she said they had a fire in their house a few years ago, the dog was home and has been spooked to stay at home alone since.

Well at least it isn't a baby picture, right?

Friday February 13

Okay, I know, I know, too many little people pictures, but this one was emailed to me from Christine. Miss Charlotte may be taking her first steps to replace Chris as Julia Child - not sure , but heck she is a cutie...........

Saturday February 14

Happy Valentine's Day - Today we started the day going out to breakfast with Dad at the diner that Robin works at - we wished her a Happy Brithday and tried to lay a teeny, tiny guilt trip on her about the "clean out" - but I do not think it sank in at all.

But the picture of the day was Christine opening the LAST Figi water bottle from the AWBC - the end of an era.......oh well.

Just snoozing with my Aunt Susie - really great aunt Susie, but she is more like awesome Aunt Susie. At least from the stories Mommy has told me about the sleep-overs at her apartment. Good times with Jennifer, Rebecca, Elizabeth and Android.

It's been a hectic week-end and hoping that this week will be a bit less stressful before my road trip to NC.

On my way into work today, while i was thinking that 8 weeks ago we were on our way to the doctor's to see if Becca was really in labor - I figured today was a good day and I looked up and saw this rainbow - I am not as good as Jen is with taking pictures while driving, but this came out pretty good - Have a rainbow day everyone.......

Today is my sister's 51st birthday. Happy Birthday Robin - but enough about that, here is not really my picture of the day - but such a cute little dude.......Amy, we may have a race tos ee who posts more pictures of little people - but they make you smile even when you have a yucky day.

Your Grandma loves you sooooo much......My little prince

Tuesday February 10

Well, this picture was taken a few weeks ago, but Becca just posted it - You see we had a sleep over a few weeks ago, really last week, but mr clarence has not been able to figure out what the smell is that Mommy comes home with when I come from Becca's. Well, tonight he found out what the smell was and had to get as close toPatrick as possible.

Monday February 9

I haven't posted any pictures of Zuzu here and I think she is feeling a little bit miffed. We have had a rough winter, but she always has a nice warm seat for Mommy in the morning. She is going to get a bath real soon.

Sunday February 8, 2009

Well, the clean-out is happening rather smoothly - and to keep us smiling in Mystic is Miss Charlotte - who just gets cutier by the day. She is getting so big and I imagine that she will be standing and walking soon. But here she is in her high chair after lunch, I think.

Then Aunt Susie got her and we got some more smiles.

Saturday again

Debbie and I needed to stop by and see Miss C on our way to Mystic to drop off some papers. We were told that she was not in a great mood - but we kind of got some smiles.

And then when we got to Mystic Sarah ahd John were leaving but we had a Grace "fix" for the day. It is fun having little people around to keep us smiling when we are dealing with the mix of emotions at Clift Street.

Sorry the pictures got a little bit messy here - but heck, that would be a Katie job, right
