I realized I have a new crop that I haven't shown here yet, so tonight's the night.

Journaling reads: You have had a thing for trains pretty much since you were born, much to Grandpa’s delight! Grandpa is in the middle of making you this train track. You are just in love with it and want to go to their house any chance you get to play with it! You got a good chance on Thanksgiving and were able to play with it for hours!!!
You are en-train-ced!!!

Journaling reads: 12 years today, we were married in Texas. Little did we know what all would be in store for us. A year apart with both of us in different countries should have been our 1st clue that our live together takes a slightly different path sometimes. Things ebb and flow between sheer happiness and times of stress. But that is life and I would have no other life than one with you by my side...

Journaling reads: We keep having such interesting weather this winter. It will be quite cool (we even had a couple days of hard freeze!) and within a few days, it will be back up in the 70’s. Then another storm will come in and it will drop back down again. This was one of the nice days and you were both able to play out front. Warm enough to get out a bucket of water to play with!

Journaling reads: Leave it to you - my dear, sweet Matthew - to get something like this! :) You came down with croup on Friday night and on Tuesday morning, you had broken out in spots! By Wednesday, you were covered. A trip back to the doctor’s to learn you had hives from an allergic reaction to the strain of the croup virus you had. As aweful as they looked, at least they didn’t bother you at all! And thankfully they are now disappearing a few days later...
Michael had to fly Orange County tonight to fix an airplane. They called this afternoon and I answered the phone, wondering wny his work was calling - LOL! The crew that was sent to fix the plane has been there since Wed. and can't get it fixed. More than likely, Michael will have it fixed and on it's way home by morning. At least, I sure hope so!!! ;) This was his last day of work this week, so now he'll probally be late. At least he'll have overtime! :)
Matthew's spots are slowly disappearing. He got 3 rounds of the Benadryl before he started throwing it up on Wed. night. Yep - he lost it 3 times that night. Poor guy. He was slightly aggressive and such on Thursday, which did make me wonder, Steph! Today he's been good so far, except he woke up alot last night, looking for me. See, I've gotten in the habit of laying down with him to get him to sleep or bringing him to bed with me when he woke up, so now we have to wean him back off that again, so he'll sleep through the night again. yay.
I sent my stuff off today to have my own personal font made. I've wanted one for years now. I have been using Jenn's (she's bloggin again, BTW!) ever since she gave it to me just over a year ago (?)! But I want my own writing on my pages to my boys. Can't wait to see it!
Matthew was invited to a birthday party tomorrow. It's his very 1st offical one, so kinda cute! One of the sweet little girls from his class. She's been in his class since the beginning and I know her mom, so it should be fun. Hopefully everything will pan out, so we can attend.
We are going to try to attend a special event at Barnes & Noble on Tuesday night. We missed the one that was last Sat., since Matthew had just come down with croup the night before. So hopefully we will make it to this one. The CEO of B&N has a daughter with the special little something extra of down syndrome and he's been holding an event at each B&N store. The one on Tues. is right down the street from us! Pete Townshend of The Who even went to one of the events (scroll down to the "Going Up with Down" post from Feb. 19th)! Cool, huh?Well - it's bed time for me! Have a great weekend!!! :)
I meant to explain a little about where the I believe page came from, and I forgot - LOL! I had planned on doing a page with the flowers and how Ryan had brought them to me, but after watching Grey's Anatomy this week, when they recapped last week, and Izzie goes into her "I believe" tirade with George when Meredith is dying, it triggered the journaling for me. Kinda funny, kinda fun, totally from the heart.
