Wee Nut

Welcome to Hershey!

We haven’t even made it to the park yet and we are having a great time already! We are enjoying time together, time in the pool  and time forgetting about everything that has been weighing so heavily on us. When we checked into our room yesterday there was a little package waiting for us....

Hershey Park, Here We Come!

After months of planning, we are just hours away from leaving for our Pre-Surgery vacation! We were in the middle of planning our trip when I mentioned it here a few months ago. We had what we thought was a nice trip planned, and what we really wanted to do was to spend time together,...

Owain Is So Much Like His Big Brothers

He hasn’t taped yarn to his face, or wrapped himself in paper like Wing Nut did, but I won’t be surprised when he does. Wee Nut has an awesome imagination and keeps me on my toes. For the majority of today, he wouldn’t answer me unless I called him Wall-e. He crawls around on...

I Love Me a Sprinkler Kind Of Day

There was so much to do today. Dishes, laundry, the floors, the bathrooms, pretty much the whole house needed to get cleaned before we go on vacation on Thursday. I started my day with coffee and every intention of avoiding all things involving cleaning. Instead I spent the day with the 2 younger kids...

Such a Big Boy!

I can’t believe that my Little Owee is such a big boy! It must be his new hair cut, but he looks so much older all of a sudden.

A New Skirt For Honey Nut Sewn From Owee’s Jeans

Since I got my sewing machine last month I haven’t really done much with it. Mostly repairing clothing and blankets and making cloth napkins. Nothing too exciting. Nothing to complicated. I needed a bit of time to get to know my new machine and get back into sewing on a machine again. I used...

Remembering The Day Owain Came Home For the First Time

May 29, 2008 was one of the best days of my life. After close to 4 weeks in the hospital, after being told over and over that he could go home, only to be kept another day, we brought Owain home.   It was such a surreal feeling. I was starting to feel like...

Monday, You Did Not Let Me Down.

After our awesome 1 hour family Wii Fit workout yesterday, I decided that I was going to start getting up at 5am to workout. I have talked about it for months and were so close when daylight savings time messed up my schedule. Yes. I am still bitter, and still blaming. I have issues....

Random Thoughts from a Tired Mama

I have looked back over some of my posts from the past few days and they seem to be a bit rambly (if that is a word) and may or may not make any sense. Somehow I am am OK with that, lol. So in keeping up with tired rambling I need to share...

Photos from Owain’s Heart Cath

I was too tired to unpack my camera and upload the photos last night, but I manged to get to it today. I wish I would have gotten a few videos as well, he was such a funny little boy. It is interesting how easily he settles in soaks up everything around him.  ...

Quick Update on Owain’s Heart Cath with Decisions to be Made

It has been a long day. I didn’t sleep much, or well last night and not that my day is over I don’t have much energy left. Everything went great. We ended up going in much later than scheduled, which made for a long morning for Owain. We were scheduled for 9:30 and it...

Owain’s Heart Cath Monday May 16

I like to think that I have been doing a pretty good job holding myself together. Between his birthday on the 3rd and thinking about his first surgery 3 years ago, and his up coming Heart Cath tomorrow and surgery next month, I have had plenty to freak out over. I have really tried...
