Birthday's Galore!!!

September is jam packed around our house with birthday fun.

My poor Justin's birthday got lost in the shuffle on Monday, between V's hospital stay and my Gold Ribbon post. Thank goodness he's an understanding kid!

My Justin had a MAJOR milestone birthday, he turned 13 on Monday Sept.7th.
I just wish we had gotten to spend it together :(
My two oldest, William and Justin are with their Father in Ohio at the moment. I so miss those boys.

We talked forever on Monday from V's hospital room, he told me all about his party and the fun he had. I'm so happy they had such a great time. But man I wish it had been here.

I'm waiting on pictures of his celebration from their Dad, so as soon as I get them i'll post a few for you all to see. Justin is just the opposite of his big brother (Will looks like me), he looks so much like his Dad. Blonde hair and big beautiful blue eyes! I miss those kids something awful.

Now on to the next Happy Birthday.. my Dad! He turned 70 years old yesterday (Sept. 10). He had a nice day all around but it's still very hard for him to find his happiness without my Mom. They were together their whole lives. Married as teenagers and together every moment until she passed away last year. He's so thin. Imagine a 6ft 5in man who weighs a slight 133lbs!

We're working hard on fattening him up. It's difficult because he says everyting he eats developes a horrible metallic taste after only a few bites. We've had him at many doctors but no one seems to know what causes it. He's even been told that it's in his head. Maybe, but I doubt it. My Dad's not the type to give in to something that easily. He did go through a MAJOR depression last year, but he really does want to eat now. He just can't. This is coming from somewhere, we just need to find out where so we can fix it, and fatten him up!

Now on to the my little man.. he's turning 4 today!!!

I can't believe we made it. There have been so many times over the past years that we really didn't know whether or not we would see this day.

Now that it's here.. we're gonna PARTY!!!

I'll be sure to post pictures later tonight or tomorrow so you can get in on the fun!
