About 2 weeks ago we went to a hockey tournament in Chicago. Here are a few pics.

Mikey is the guy with a red jersy and black helmet.

When all the games were over we took a train into the city to visit the Lego store.

Here is a happy boy!

Believe it or not, he is really impressed with the Lego Bionicle

Then we happened upon Uno's Pizzeria. Can't go to The Windy City and not go to Unos!


Aym caught int he headlights

My girl went on her first REAL date. As in, she got into his car and they drove away. Some of you may think thats not a big deal, but he is in 12th grade and she is in 10th grade. You know, 15 and 17. That a big age difference at this age. Also he is going into the Marines when he graduates.
This was 2 weeks ago. I found out that when he kissed her good-bye, it was his first kiss. Also, she said that was his first formal at school. I tend to believe that. Last night she went over to his house and they all watched the Super Bowl. She said that his older sister and cousin was teasing that it was nice to meet her and that she was real and not made up. That makes me think that he really hasn't had any girlfriends either. anyway, I think they are very cute.

Mikey's birthday cake

His gift

Speaking of red wings hockey and cake...Daniel and I were strolling the mall and we went into Williams-Sonoma (or whatever it's called) and I found a 3 dimensional octopus cake pan for half price!

Poor Mikey just had the living doo-doo scared outta him.
He was downstairs taking care of the cat. He had just filled her bowl and was getting ready to scoop her box. He took a step back and ended up on her tail. She let out a loud screech and freaked him out so bad! He screamed and ran upstairs. I was holding him and he was shaking so hard. After he calmed down he told me that he thought she was meowing because someone or thing was in the basement. My boy and kitty are ok. The dumb cat didn't learn a blasted thing from the situation.
About 20 minutes later I was making Daniel a sandwich and she was sitting dead center of the doorway and didn't move an inch!

Mery Christmas to all my friends!!!! [25 Dec 2007|11:26am]
[ mood | happy ]

So my living room looks like a paper and toy factory blew up!
Aym got a Zune which she was very happy to see. She didn't ask for it and probably thought she would never get another electronic device since she's screwed up 2 or i-pods. I lost track. I remember one landed in the toilet because it was in her back pocket and her current one hasw a broke screen from her back pack, oh yea, her face astringent stuff spilled on her dresser and some got inside... so yea.
Michael got lots 0f hockey figurines, star wars thingys and the coolest, an air soft gun (bee-bee style) that looks like an automatic rifle. Camouflage and all! He said "i got so many toys I don't know what to play with!"
I bought Daniel Mass Effect for the x-box 360 and a sweater. I tried to buy him this book called Forbidden LEGO: Build the Models Your Parents Warned You Against! but the 3 different stores i went to didn't have it.
On the other hand, he spoiled me. I didn't give him any ideas until yesterday. I've been so busy getting all the things down that i just didn't have time to sit and think about it. He bought me the food grinder attachment for my stand mixer and a hand mixer, i asked for those. The he got me some leopard print gloves and an awesome purse, also leopard print! It so sweet and gawdy i can't believe he actually bought it for me. I was gushing over it the other day, and he just kept going on about how ugly it was! But they all match my fuzzy leopard coat! hehehe
Well, my mom just called and they are going to be here in about 1 1/2 hours so I need to get moving!

Hugs to all!!!

I'm so excited for Mikey!
Today he gets to play a game at the VanAndle Arena!
Thats where the Grand Rapids Griffins play. They are an AHL team and the farm team for the Detroit Red Wings!
Then the team gets to stay for a game later.
I guess the boys already know who it is the want to sit by durning the game!
Sadly, I don't get to stay for the game... Aym has a choir concert tonight. I know that sounds awful, but they are long and boring as hell. It would be different if she had a special part, but she doesn't that I know. She was bummed that she had to miss his game and stuff.

What The Holidays Mean to You

For you, the holidays are about emotional connections and bonds. You are happiest being around those you love.

You celebrate the holidays in a minimalist style. You are likely to only give one great present and decorate your house with a few special items.

During the holidays, you feel magical. You love all of the decorations and how happy people are. You like to sit back and take it all in.

You think the holidays should be nostalgic and sweet. The holidays bring out your inner child.

Your best holiday memories are of childhood foods and traditions. You secretly still wish you believed in Santa Claus.

For the last 2-3 weeks, my goofy cat has been staring at this one register. I've opened it and vacuumed and I never hear anything.

How was everyones Thanksgiving?
Mine was well. We stayed home. We've been so busy we really just wanted to kick back and not HAVE to be anywhere.
Crazy crap that happened:
The turkey was done about 1-1 1/2 hours earlier than expected.
In my opinion, it was dry but ok.
And my pie crust got soggy, not sure what happened there! It was nice and browned on the bottom when I took it out of the oven, then the next day when I cut it it was damp and doughy. BUT, the pumpkin set very well. I do not like a mushy pumpkin pie. GROSS! I also made my cranberries more geletin like...I wasn't sure how to phrase that. But I didn't want it to run all over my plate, so I cooked them about 10 minutes longer than usual, then gave them a good stir before putting them on the table. Yummers!

Thankfully we didn't go out to my parents, because I was very ill Friday. I puked dark green....I didn't eat anything green 'cept a small tasty scoop of greenbean crap. Soooo, i dunno. I'm glad I'm better today.

Tomorrow Mikey has a 3 on 3 tournament to play. That will be an experience. The puck drops at 8am! He hasn't gotten up before 830 in over week! But he is excited because he gets to be Goalie and thats his favorite position.

Also, our family web site is back up. There are pictures of aym in her beautiful halloween costume, school pics,then if you scroll though the blog posts there are videos of game highlights and aym singing My Funny Valentine at the dinner theater her school did. She has such a beautiful voice! OH! I also made a weeding cake! It was so much fun! My first commission! there are a couple of pictures of that too!

Revelations about Respect or the Lack Thereof [19 Sep 2007|11:38am]
When the house is a disaster everyday, i am disrespecting my family-daniel, because he works so hard to afford a nice place to live and my kids because I am teaching them bad habits and they may be embarrassed to bring friends over.

When I choose to put certain foods into my body I disrespect myself.

When lawns are not kept up is is disrespectful to the family that live in the home and the neighboring homes that have to look at the disheveled yard.

When laws and rules are not followed, it is disrespectful to other citizens. In that it inconveniences others because you had to think of your needs first.

It almost feels like Fall outside.
If the humidity wasn't so high it would.
It's dark, windy and a little rainy!
I'm feeling all cumfy-cozy.

I love this song-it speaks to me in strange ways [06 Sep 2007|01:07pm]
Jon Mclaughlin
Beautiful Disaster

She loves her mama's lemonade,
Hates the sounds that goodbyes make.
She prays one day she'll find someone to need her.
She swears that there's no difference,
Between the lies and complements.
It's all the same if everybody leaves her.

And every magazine tells her she's not good enough,
The pictures that she sees make her cry.

And she would change everything, everything just ask her.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,
And she needs someone to take her home.

She's giving boys what they want, tries to act so nonchalant,
Afraid they'll see that she's lost her direction.
She never stays the same for long,
Assuming that she'll get it wrong.
Perfect only in her imperfection.

She's not a drama queen,
She doesn't want to feel this way, only seventeen but tired

She would change everything for happy ever after.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,
But she just needs someone to take her home.

Cuz she's just the way she is, but no ones told her that's ok.

And she would change everything, everything just ask her.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,

And she would change everything for happy ever after.
Caught in the in between of beautiful disaster,

But she just needs someone to take her home
And just needs someone to take her home.

Aym turned 15 this summer.
She is starting to become a handful, but she hasn't even came close to how I was at her age.
As far as I know, her dad and I keep a tight watch on her! For real-another long story.
Before I was 15 I had gone pretty far witht he boys-sexually that is. I managed to keep my *a-hem* viginity until I was 18, but pretty much had tried most things before 15.
But mostly what made my brain tick was that I had experienced true love before 15.
Most people would say, "what does a 15 year old girl, with alot of boyfriends notched on the belt, know about love?"
I was 14 when we met, he had just turned 16. Only a 2 year difference, but in a way he was a bit too old. I'm sure most of you are saying, "too old!!?? what is she talking about?"
Some thought I came from a strict family, I say considering the hell i put my parents through in my 12-13 year they were not so bad. But I had to be 16 to go out on dates. I didn't mind really. But thats why it didn't work with 'this guy'. I believe we both loved each other. He wanted to go out and do things that older teens do, while I had to wait. He started seeing another girl at his school, yet tried to keep me. It was hard for him to have to go through all that, I could tell even back then.
This is how I know he loved me.
He didn't want to break up with me.
The following fall he said "you had a birthday didn't you? Are you 16 yet?" Whe I said no he did this cute pout thing he used to do.
At his open house they had a tent set up outside, so the house was empty. He saw me go in and followed me so he could hug me and talk with me-no girlfriend around.
He still looked at me the same way. You know how young lovers look deep into each others eyes with that certain LOOK.
He went on to go to the Marines and all that after high school stuff. I graduated went to a year of college and became an adult.
I was 19 and I was still living with my parents but getting ready to get my own place. Then HE comes up the driveway! My heart melted. Even though I had a boyfriend of 3 years, I was ready to dump him. That night sparked a nice 30 day leave! We spent almost every day and most nights together, remember I moved out. I think of it as closer to the relationship for both of us. I ask about him sometimes. Our moms are still really good friends. And I hurt when I hear something bad has happened and I'm happy when I find out good things.
