Her name is Rio and she dances in the RAIN!

Well here I am, sitting home no teens... my daughter Rio went to her first dance!  She's 12 and has a personality that sparkles as much as she does tonight.   We did a little body glitter, hair glitter, throw some Converse in the mix and Vioala!  A most appropriate Teen outfit I can be proud of!  I dropped her off and she was quite different from the rest of the gals, she had no heavy make-up on, no high heels (which is good cause she trips on flat surfaces), and even though she still decided she wanted to cover her legs the dress was still about seven inches longer than everyone else's!  

She was so excited and as a mom, I must admit I am pretty excited for her!  So weird, I dropped one off at a first dance, and the other at the movies to meet the girlfriend... man where did the years go?  And I have to do it all again with the 2 year old!  Ahhh the joys of parenting, I must say it is priceless!  

She looks so adorable doesn't she?

WOwie 17!

Wowie I can't believe that 17 years have passed since I held this 5'11" boy in my arms.  I remember him looking up at me, after four long days of labor... I met him just one day after he was born.  I got sick, I was exhausted and slept for the first day of his life... well at least 12 hours of it.

When the nurses brought him to me, he just looked up at me like...Wass up! He is one awesome kiddo, of course he has his teen moments, but what teen doesn't right?  Just one more year and he is off to College =( I guess it had to happen.  I am so proud of him though, we have had trials and errors along the way. Being only 19 when he was born and daddy only 27 we were not prepared.  But we did alright.  

He always makes me laugh when I am down, cracks me up with is goofyness and at times is still mommy's boy.  He and Jude are pals, and love to hang out together.  He's so tender with children and animals, if I allowed it he would have about 20 pets in our home!  Of course being 17 today, he wants to celebrate with his girlfriend =( stinker!  No cake either!  I need my cake fix~ I am going to bake one anyway and eat it with Jude, Rio and Chris! Ha!

Happy Birthday Christian you are the light of my life!
Jude 2  Christian 17
