I mean, I check my Facebook 1,345,872 times per day and I manage other peoples blogs but I can't seem to get in the habit of doing y own. I Just downloaded the app on my itouch so now Maybe I will "get to the gettin" or should I say "get to the blogging!"

I am not a morning person....I LOVE to REALLY REALLY love to sleep.

I am one of those people that set their alarm to go off an hour before they have to get up, AND my clock is set 30 minutes fast..just to make sure I get up on time!

This morning my alarm went off, and I hit the snooze just like I always do...I rolled over to go back to sleep..and I couldnt.

All I could think about was how "little people" or "midgets" ( I dont think thats the technical term, and I'm not trying to be offensive...) drive cars!

How do they reach the pedals? How can they see? what about the seatbelt? Seriously ya'll....for a good half hour, thats all I thought about.

I wiggled in the bed and the hubs rolled over and opened one eye and looked at me.

Hubs: (as hes looking at me with one eye) What are you doing?
Me: can midgets drive?
Hubs: Yes
Me: how?
Hubs: they have special pedals
Me: how can they see above the dashboard?
Hubs: they have like a boosters seat or something
Me: But then they cant reach the pedals at all!
Hubs: they have like extenders or something
Me: oh! okay!

Then I got up and went downstairs to get ready for work

I didnt think anything else about it until tonight when I got home. Hubs was sitting next to me and he started laughing...he asked " do you remember the very first thing you said to me this morning?" I said "no?!" then I remembered! He thought it was hilarious that I didnt say "good morning" or even "HI!" just "can midgets drive cars?"

I'm SO random.....

its not your baby.....

so as you will see in my post cousin was getting induced today to have her beautiful baby boy...Ian.

She did have him and he is PERFECT...but those details are for her to share...and I shouldnt until she does.

But I CAN share this....

They do this new things these days when you have a baby, and right when it is born the mom and baby have "skin to skin" time. They dont even clean the baby up, or weigh it or measure it. They just let the mom and dad and baby bond. I think thats way cool...

So while this "skin to skin" time is happening we are all waiting and waiting and getting super excited to see the baby! When Amys husband came and and told us that they were getting him all cleaned up...we went to the nursery to look in the window and see his precious face.

I walked to the window and saw him, and then I called to my other cousins and Amy's dad to come see him! The nurse was cleaning him all up, and we started taking pictures. When she opened the door and wheel him out, we were all SO exicted, taking more pics and saying how adorable he was.

This whole time the nurse was looking at us SO WIERD...finally she said....."you guys! this isnt your baby!" "He is still with his mamma!"

HAHA!! we were doting and taking pictures of a baby that wasnt even the one we thought!

Massive fail on my part.....but hey...whoever the parents are of that baby..., they did good...he is WAY cute.

So, if you need me... I will be deleting pics from my camera...because they are of someone elses baby :)

SO long!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, its been almost a whole year since I last posted on here! There has been SO many changes in our life in the past year! God had some plans for us....and we are just following His lead! We moved from our home, that was PERFECT for live with my father. As my mom passed away a year and a half ago....he needed some help, and some company. Plus it would allow us to save some money and buy a house later.

Its been SO crazy living in the house that I grew up in, mostly because my mom isnt here. But there are SO many memories in this house! Plus, my mom was a very organized hoarder :) HA! not really a hoarder....but she loved pretty things, and she has ALOT of them. Her main love language was gifts....and so she LOVED to give amazing gift baskets to people.....when we moved in and started moving and going through some of her stuff we found boxes and boxes of new unused items that she had bought and intended to use for gifts! I have her same love language, and I cant wait to give some of these very special items to some very special people in my family,because it will be a gift from me AND my mom!

The hubs has also graduated from college with his bachelors degree! I cant wait to see what GOD has in store for him and his future career, all I know is that I am SO proud of him!

I love this pic, but miss Mary wasnt in it...shes still in Texas with her Dad..but she will be here on July 1st! I CANNOT wait...I miss her SO much!

I am going to try to blog every day.....lets see if I can :) Happy Monday!
