adrians making friends everywhere he his dad!

Took AD to the Dr. today, hoping this medicine will clear up his cough!!! (and not make him aggressive like the last one!!)

Tonight we are going to Steve's for PawPaws bday. We have a fun weekend ahead of us!! Gonna go look at the Ft Worth stockyards to check it out and consider it for Matt n Kathys wedding reception. Saturday we have a birthday party and dinner at the Hall's. Cant wait to see Christines new house!! On sunday were going to the Arboretum....pumkins galore!!!! gonna take tons of cute pics!

Cute story for the day: At the drs office adrian and a little mexican boy were having soooo much fun playing together! the funny part was that the other little boy spoke only spanish, and adrian only english. and both of them had a limited vocab, but they played and laughed and that never phased them! i loved it. also, adrian did an awesome job listening to me when i asked him to do/not do something AND he did so good when the dr checked him out. Way to go BooBoo!!!

Memory time: Speaking of birthdays, we gave pop a quilt for his last birthday, 68 years old. It has hand/foot prints of all the grandkids and words describing his character. He loved it! One day i was at the house and was really cold so i went to grab a blanket(the quilt) and he goes "uhhhh...why dont u use another one." ha! how funny, i think he wanted to keep his quilt in good condition. Love you pops! Mamas keeping it nice for you :)

Ive decided...

I think im going to attempt to post a memory of my pop and something cute/crazy the kids do, daily!

Todays kiddo highlight: Which is actually from Sunday night. AD was upset about something and had sat down balling his eyes out against the front door. Eliana with a worried look in her eyes looked up at him and instantly wanted to help. She got up walked over picked up his "leche" (sippy cup with milk) and took it over to him, walked back picked up his lion and then took it to him. Isnt that so sweet?? She loves him soo much and didnt want him to cry....sigh...

Todays memory: One day when i stayed overnight with pop, it was about 3:30 am. He sat in his recliner and i sat on the couch across the room. He went through a list of everything he had done to the house since we had moved in. Like, putting in new flooring, a shed, granite countertops, the list goes on and on. And to be honest, we went through the list twice! Every once in a while he would say "I love this house" or "casita chulita" The couple things he still wanted to do was to take the popcorn ceiling off the few rooms that still had it, and paint the (new) dining room. I think its awesome that he had almost done everything he wanted to his dream house. Precious papa.

how do you start one of these things?

They're pretty intimidating. But, I guess Ill just write my thoughts, and not worry about anything else...To sum up my life right now, I'd say its super busy and kind of on pause. I have ad and chicky running around all day playing, learning and needing lots of my attention. Ive got a house, small house, that i am just learning how to decorate and attempt to keep up. Oh! and lets not forget M! He works full time, goes to school full time and is pretty much devoted to me, the kids and football when hes not working on the other two. So, Im here in ennis, away from my precious family(mom and sisters), with my precious family! The reason i said my life is on pause is because im not done with school, and currently wouldnt be able to fit it into my little family's schedule. I plan to finish...but what will i study???? To Be Continued....

So anyways, its been one month and 2 days since my papa passed away. I miss him. So. Much. I know all of the things people say like: hes in heaven now, he isnt suffering, he is watching over us...but is it bad that i just want him here with us, healthy? its like ok, pop. come back from your trip and take care of us again.

Lately it all comes back to pop...for me anyways...
