Little Anthony

I'm so happy that I got to see my cousin Trisha and the newest little guy in her life, Anthony. Through this wonderful world of blogging I've kept up on his growth from birth to his current ripe old age of two months. I've loved seeing every snapshot and little video snippet, deciding whether he looks more like his mommy or his daddy, but pictures can't come close to the chance to get to hold him (even though he cried and farted on me, stinky little guy). I'm so happy for Trisha and Jason and know they are going to be great parents to this little angel. I'm sure he'll grow big and strong, unlike grannie who thinks he'll be starved first. Here's some pics of grannie holding her 3rd great grandchild!

He seemed to be happiest in his bare skin and his mommy even got him to smile a little bit for me:)

Happy Birthday Mom!!

I really love this lady! She is the nicest person and I hope she knows just how much she means to me. She is so warm and always has the time to be there for her girls. I couldn't ask for a better mother.

She received the most beautiful bouquet of orchids in the mail from one of her brothers,
my picture really doesn't do them justice, they are just too awesome. Hmm, I can almost smell them from here!

So here I am...again!

Wish I could say there's been some great story for why I haven't posted anything. I almost deleted this thing so many times, but I knew I'd be here again someday. My intentions have been good, I have dozens of pictures I took with the intent to post them. Maybe you'll see them, someday, probably in a scrapbook page..if I ever get around to doing that again.

It's been project time lately. Little odds and ends stuff around the house. Elena and I moved into the cutest little place back in October and I just now feel like I'm getting a handle on putting things together in a way that feels right. The biggest project was digging this old thing out of my parent's storage shed.
I got it free years ago (I don't even remember how many!). It was in good shape, just needed a new piece of hardware. I recently bought a new mattress and thought it would be the perfect time to finally have a pretty bed frame to sleep on. So the new adventure began. I went around to a few antique stores, only to get no help at all. Unless you consider being told I'd have to buy a whole new antique bed to get the hardware off of it help. I went home and did a little online research and found just what I needed. Worries over--not! With my mattresses and new hardware on their way, I set out to pick out the perfect paint color and sand, prime and paint my new/old bed. As I was finishing up I had a horrible thought--what if my mattress sat up too tall in the bed frame and covered the whole headboard? Well, that's exactly what I'd later find to be true. I was so bummed! Then I decided to use it anyway. The support was too wide and the mattress slipped through to the floor. So they all sat stacked in my room until dad could come to the rescue. For two weeks I had to bunk with my sis. Today it's fixed and I am so happy to get to sleep on my new mattresses and on my new/old bed!
