*** SUPERMAN ***

TY got this cute little superman and batman cap for Christmas from a cousin. He really didn't care for it until now. He is into superheros now and as you can tell from the pictures that he loves to fly and jump from tall buildings to save a beautiful lady. He cracks me up. He will go around the house running, yelling superman holding his cap as he goes. We are trying to convince him that if he starts to go potty in the big potty then he can have superman underwear. He likes that idea for about...... 20 seconds and then he is done. He is such a joy to have in our home. You forget how fun and energetic they can be and the things they say make your whole day better.

Remembering a loved one

Remembering my mom is always a hard one for me. We took the kids to the cemetery and of course took flowers to my moms grave. But every year as we walk up to the head stone. I start to get teary eyed and can't talk. The kids put the flowers by the head stone and we stand there and then we leave. This year I wanted to get a picture of her grandkids that she never met here on earth, but I know that she took good care of them when she had them. I know that she loves them and wishes to hold them again in her arms. They don't know alot about her cause I have a hard time talking about her. (like now I am crying and haven't really said anything) She left this world at a time in my life when I needed her the most. I have had to go through life on my own and figure things out with out the help of a mother. I wish everyday that she was here. There are so many things that would be diffrent and the relationships I have had would have been stronger than they are now. I feel for those of you that have lost a loved one. It is not easy and the pain never goes away. I try to push it as far back in my head as it will go, so that I don't have to think about it. But at random times it all comes rushing back and I am like a little child wanting her mom to hold her in her arms just one more time. It has been 17 years since she lost her battle with cancer. I am just grateful for the time that I did have with her. I know that she would have been proud of me and how I have raised her grand kids. We will love and miss her always.

The BIG reveal

So a year ago in April. Brad went to Russia to grizzly bear hunt. Well the other day he got to finally display it. After four men, a door that had to be removed and little scrape on the wall we got it in. This thing is HUGE!!! As you can tell from the picture Ty is but a minor little dot compared to this giant of a beast that Brad shot from 30 yards away. This picture doesn't give it justice his feet and hands are enormous. His claws are very sharp and as long as my hand alone. Not sure how Brad managed to shot this with out running for his life first. What a great addition to his collection.
