Too Much!

This house has been pretty boring the last couple of months, but we totally made up for that today!

And now the boys are eating the loot and watching the World Series.

I am struggling, but at least I am strong enough to admit it.

When first diagnosed, I thought "No big deal."

After Surgery, I thought "Wow, that was crappy!"

When Radiation Started, I said "I can get through this."

Now, I am thinking "How am I going to get through this."

I am currently on the Thyroid....

I'm up, down, side to side, basically all over the place!

Until all the cancer cells have died (about 1-2 years) I will be unstable.
More unstable than I was before? Now that's SPOOKY!

So until then, I will just hold on.

It isn't fun, but it's necessary. I guess I will endure, so I can see my grandkids one day. I keep waiting for Vince to jump ship on me, heaven knows this isn't easy for him. He is a peach. I know he didn't sign up for a Crazy Wife, but he is doing what he can to keep me sane.

Thanks everyone for all the love a support, every little bit helps a ton.

Okay, this post is totally depressing. On a lighter/cuter note:

There's nothing cuter than two little pumpkins and two boys in camo pants!

We could never miss my mother's Halloween Party. Isn't it obvious why!

There was fishing, marble rolling, pumpkin tossing and of course Halloween Bingo (which the adults thoroughly enjoy!)

My mother has outdone herself again. I don't know how she will top it next year, and yet, she always does!

Help Grandpa Day

My Grandpa Wheatley has the most beautiful yard and apples trees. Every year the we all get together to help Grandpa pick the apples and get his yard ready for winter. This year we decided to add costumes for the Great Grandkids. It was hilarious!

There was even a pinata! Get it boys!

"Angie,What's The First Thing You Are Going To Do With Your Kids?"

Torture Them.

I thought taking pictures of the kids in their costumes would be torture, but it was actually really fun.
Jack loves his costume so much. For those of you who don't know him: he eats, sleeps and lives for tools!

Welcome Home!

I seriously stared out the window for an hour Saturday afternoon, just waiting for these two little stinkers to pull in the driveway. It was a glorious reunion!

We celebrated Brooke's 1st Birthday the very second they got here, because I was so excited and I couldn't wait one more minute!
(Beware a serious picture overload)
Lots of Pink
Vince couldn't get those babies out of the box fast enough, she was SCREAMING for them!
I think Jack actually opened ALL the presents, he loved the babies too!
I knew Jack would want a cake!

These 2 weeks went by very quickly! I decided to use this time to get stuff ready for the Unique Boutique in November. All I have done is SEW! SEW! SEW!

34 Blankets
36 Burp Cloths
36 Bibs
12 Superman/Batman Capes

I also have a whole other pile of stuff I completed earlier in the year. I am almost done, just about 20 more capes to go!

Today my To Do list is extremely long, because the kids are coming home tomorrow! Time to get this house, that has been completely ignored due to sewing, back into shape!

Reminiscing amidst all the work.

1 year ago today I was kissing this sweetie for the first time.

Where did all that hair go?

My Pride & Joy

The freeze this week forced me outside to work in my "Garden". I use this term lightly, because it is really sad. Seriously, my huge pumpkin patch only produced 4 "okay sized" pumpkins.

Pumpkin #2 is definitely my Baby! He may only be the size of a small cantaloupe, but you can't imagine the pure joy on my face when I went outside and saw that I actually had an ORANGE pumpkin this year. Last year they were all sport'n a Summer Green.

I even made Vince carry it with "TWO HANDS!" (this is what I yelled at him), up the stairs in the backyard. I didn't want any tragedies with that beauty!

I am not quite sure where the "root" of my gardening problems is. (I crack myself up) I do blame cancer for quite a bit of this. I swore last year, that next year I would do better at getting out and cultivating my little pumpkin patch. But lo, Cancer destroyed all time and desire.

I still display my Green pumpkins on the porch, and they actually break up the monotony of the Orange quite well.

Perhaps I will say that I grow them like that on purpose.
