No computer... Sad girl...

I am so upset that my not even 2 year old computer is needing to be sent to the grave. At least for now, that is what I am being told! Here is the deal... You get the computer, the extended warranty, the virus protection, did I say extended warranty, and a 24 on call person to follow you around if something does goes wrong. Then when something does go wrong, nothing you have is what you need to get it fixed. ARGGGGG!!! If you know me you know that this is my addiction and I am having a hard time not having it. It has been out of commission since Tues and I am not sure now what to do. Dell wants to charge me enough that I could get a new computer. What to do? What to do? I am now stepping off my soapbox! Thanks for listening.

Missing my baby...

I have been without Gracen for a week now, and I am just about to my limit on not hearing "Mommy" ever couple of minutes. I know she had a great visit with her Bibi and Papa and now she is at Nana and Paw Paw's house. She is having the time of her life and I can't get her to slow down long enough to even talk to me on the phone. I just get "Hey, Mommy... I love you.... Bye Mommy." Just a few more days and I will get to hug my sweet little girl again. I miss her sooooo much! I can't wait until Saturday.

Good to be 40 inches....

As most of you know, you have to be 40 inches to ride the "big" rides at Disney. To avoid a complete meltdown by Gracen, I measured her before we left so that I knew she would be OK. By my measurements, she was a little over 41", so I thought we were good to go on that issue until we got to Soarin' at Epcot. They are obviously using a different measurement system, because she was only 39 inches. Immediately she lost it and was heartbroken because she couldn't ride. SO was I!

After a little bit of coaching like "stand up straight when they measure you, honey", we actually got on a different ride called Test Track. As we were walking by the person who measures kids, Gracen turns to me and says "Mommy, I am tall enough to ride now!" We just rushed through gate and got on QUICKLY! The things you will do for you kids.

Later we went back to Soarin' and Gracen walked very tall right past the person measuring. It was a great ride and she loved it.

So, being 40 inches was a big deal and when we visited the Star Wars store it was completely necessary to buy her this shirt of Yoda trying to get on a ride. She loves her shirt "Judge me by my size do you?" I think she even sounds a little like Yoda. Enjoy her video...

Judge me by my size do you?

Going fishing with Daddy

In May, Gracen went on her first fishing trip with Jamie. She caught 41 fish, got to feed the ducks, play in the rain, and went "strolling" with her Barbie fishing rod. That would be known as "trolling" to most fishermen. If you look very closely, you can see the baby fish on her rod. All in all it was a successful day on the lake.

There are critters in the woods....

We have been visiting Mom and Dad this past week in Georgia and we have really enjoyed being "in the woods." Our experience is now complete with Gracen having red bug bites and seeing a "holy poly" one morning. For those of you who didn't know, that is a roly poly.

Have a great day!
