patrick meets Susan Boulware - one of the nicest people to work for and to be around. Becca and patrick came to visit Grandma at work and Susan got to meet my little man - I think he is flirting with her right at this point.......
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 -
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....
Well, today was supposed to be a kind of lazy day before the trip, but it became a busy one...packing, washing, planning and spending time with little poeanut - so here is a picture of just a something, not sure what I am going to pick.....
Me and my shadow......I have been trying to get this kind of a shot for weeks. While I am driving into work, I can see the shadow of Zuzu....today I got this kind of a shot driving in - getting a bit better with taking pictures while driving.......
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.
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...........
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
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.
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.
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.
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
Happy Birthday Mimi - and today it's back to Mystic - We had our stand at the store for the AVON walk and Becca and Elizabeth and Mister Patrick manned the booth. I think they may have had more fun that we did.
I had to write this post after looking at Amy's post the other day whre her Mom, my dear friend Leslie, did not want a picture posted due to it being "messy".. Women, you want to see Messy, Take a look at these pictures for todays post. Unfortunately, I cannot do anything until we get Clift Street done.......Now this is a MESS
Now this is a messy........and we don't even have a little one up here......
You guys must hink I ahve nothing else to take pictures of, well I do, but baby pictures are so much fun. Last night we had a "sleep over" at Grandma's house - and you would have thought it was Christmas Eve with the way I whirilled around the house. This is Patrick, duh, sleeping this morning before I left for work.
Well, while the task of cleaning out Clift Street has been tiring at times, one of the things that makes us all smile is seeing this little munchkin crawling around the cottage or sitting in her high chair. She had just woken up from her name and this is the happy little girl. Love you Charlotte - We will get out of your way really soon.....
