Update on our sweet little Didi

Well I have decided to just give a quick update to the Deedster! We call her that but I mean Didi! Since I have been very neglectful on our blog! Tomorrow (that's Tuesday) we are going to the court house to watch her birth parents sign the Consent To Adopt. Everyone knows we just love her little guts so we are super excited to have her in our lives. SO I will up date again and make sure everyone knows that they did sign. Then in 60-90 days we will be a family (on paper, in our hearts we already are).

I have to tell you how much we love this fun trip to Disneyland! We went at the first part of June but since Chi Chi died I was kinda not in the mood to blog! So I am finally blogging about how much we love stroller passes and Micky Mouse! We drove there with both of the kids! They were both extremely good. Not that much whining or crying. We drove to Vegas on our way down and stayed at the Excalibur and boy did Bodey think that was cool staying in a Castle with real Knights!

This was Jon and Bodey at the Hotel eating Dinner in Las Vegas!

The next Morning we went to Anaheim and had such a great time! WE hit Disney and went to the beach, the Aquarium at long beach and we went to Medieval Times! OMG! Bodey kept asking Jon if it was real! Jon kept saying, "no Bodey its fake" but Bodey would ask, "Are you sure? It looks real?" We just had a great time! It was cold the whole time so JON was in heaven! The rest of us were a little bummed but Oh well it was a blast!

First day at Disneyland! I don't think Bodey was happy at all!!!

Star Tours a.k.a Heaven for Boys!

She wasn't quite sure about this! That's a Dad for ya!

Cutest Mini Mouse in the world!

If Bodey could live at the Lego store he would!

So sweet! Didi is not a hunch back I think it's the shirt!

Medieval Times! We were the red and yellow knight! Aren't they cuties? This pictures makes me want to eat them up!

I wish I could post all my pictures. We had so many cute ones but that would take me a year and I don't think that anyone really cares! :) So I just posted the favorites! We didn't have a lot together but I hate asking people to take my pictures. I feel stupid! Anyways it was so fun and I can't wait until next year to go again!!!

A tribute to Chi Chi!

As for any of you that don't know we lost our little sweet dog Chi Chi. She was hit by a car and was killed instantly. She was the best dog. A little crazy but so loved! My son was so sad, we had a funeral for her and it was really sad. We found out on the last day of trip. We were at my in laws in Mesquite. My little nephew was witness to the whole thing and was so upset, he is only 2 and he cried for 3 hours I guess. As sad as it is my son Bodey which is one of the most tenderhearted kids I know asked me if dogs go to heaven. I said yes, thinking that was it. He then asked about the big gates into heaven if they were real. I just said, "I think so." He then proceeded to ask if we should pray because Chi Chi is such a little dog they might not see her to open the gate. So we prayed and asked god to keep the gates open for Chi Chi. I thought that was the most sweetest thing. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. So here is our sweet Chi Chi I hope you all enjoy

Chi Chi loved car rides so much we always had to sneak out or take her with.

Christmas morning!!!This was the morning Bodey and Chi Chi met

This Picture of Didi and Chi Chi is most fitting because that flower in the hat and those glasses. Chi Chi ate them! I was so mad and now who cares its just stuff!

This is Chi Chi on my lap. This was our favorite thing. I watched Grey's and Chi Chi snuggled!

Young to Old in 3 minutes

When is the moment that we become adults to our kids! I remember being a kid, I remember thinking that I am young, That was at noon on today; then at 12:03 my son told me I was too old to play with him and the blocks. What!!! I thought I was young fun Mom! No! I am old, embarrassing Mom. I am becoming my Mom!!! AHA!!!

Well one day I will be young mom again. I know this because My mom is Young Fun Mom now. She is one of my favorites to hang out with. So she was like 46 when I thought that so I a have like.... a while... yes I can add....

Where did the time go?

Just yesterday Bodey was 18 months, We forget how small they really were and how small they still are. Today I had a very bad mom moment. You know the ones where if you were on film you would feel so stupid. No hitting just yelling for nothing. So I had to reevaluate and take him to school so that I didn't kill him! ;) It was just one of those mornings that I had to realise that he is still small and sweet and I have to have some patients.

He is not 3 anymore, as much as I want him to be he is just not and will never be again. I wish I could remember ever second of his age, this was one of my favorite times of his life. He was such
the best talker. When he was 3 he talked like a 10yr old. He loved to sing and dance in the frontroom with me, now I can't even get him to do it when nobody watching.

He is soooo 5 and it is soooo much fun. He loves to play army and Star Wars. He hums the tune to Star Wars all day everyday (drives me up a wall). He loves to go to the park with his friends, He talks back and has an attitude but what kid doesn't. He eats like a horse, and is skin and bones. How in envy him. He is so friendly and cute. He loves sports and plays them all. He is naturally good at MOST of them, no NBA contracts for him I don't think. He looks so much like me when I was that age. We are twins. Well this is my happy story of my not to perfect life and this is one of the best parts of me. I hope you all enjoyed.

My Didi! Is she mine?

We go through this daily, the roller coaster ride of foster care! She feels like ours and she acts like us. Then I have to take her to visit her other parents and I feel so torn. I know that if she went back to them her life wold be full of turmoil. It would be very confusing and very hard. No family vacations, no one really to pay attention to her, no one to just take her hiking (my passion) in this wonderful city of hiking ! Her life would be full of selfishness and poor me. How can I give her back, then I think I don't have to give her back I will never have to give her back. The Universe just won't allow her to go, she is too happy to go back to such a sad place. If you believe in the Law of Attraction then you know Like attracts Like and she is not like them.

To change the subject and be happy, speaking of the Law of Attraction I decided to paint Didi's room and I don't have a ton of money so I did her whole room furniture and all for about $150.00. It looks so cute. I went to the DI and got her dresser and redid it. I then bought a changing table at another thrift place and redid that. My husbands boss gave us a 20 year old crib that is in the best shape and I redid it and it is beautiful! I then redid a chair that I stole from my parents and had my mother in law redo the cushions. It looks so cute. I thought I would tell the Universe that I am moving on with her! If anything it makes me feel good when I walk in her room. It is the only room done in the whole house and it has really good Chi.

There are better pictures and I still have a few finishing touches to do. But I am crafting them so anyone that knows me knows that I am a flake and only finish half of my projects so we will see how it goes!
