Yep I did it again!

Just did not feel like it was home yet so I changed the looks of my blog!! Wanted something different! so here I go again changing my clothes again!

YOu should see me getting ready for church on sundays!!! LOL! Took me forever this time, kept goofing up! Please let me know if I am missing your link! I had an awful time with the links!!!

Friday Jay Jay went to his first friend Bday party!

He was so excited!! The bday boy wanted a sleepover but 5 yearolds! so his mom (smart mom!!) let him have a pretend sleepover! The boys were invited for a 3 hour party 5:30-8:30 and they were to bring their pjs and after they ate supper (pepperoni pizza) and cake, they changed into their pjs and played some games and watched a pirate movie! The party was pirate themed! Jason had such a great time! All he has talked about since is Cole's bday party!! His dad bought him new superman pjs for the party and as you can see from the photos he is pretty proud of them!!

I am proud of my Daughter in Law Amy

We have not always seen eye to eye and it is not easy living in the same house. But recently I told Amy about somethings that she needed to think about and work on changing and she is doing so well at doing her best!

It is hard to take critism and truly try to apply it to our lives and she has done a good job this past week.

She has her plate full raising 4 children, two of which of not my sons although he loves them like his own (they are like my own grandchildren also but I am not old enough to be their grandmother!!!!) and they are hurt by their biological father frequently (even though they don't see him since he lives hundreds of miles away but just through his calls and lack of support, gifts,etc.he hurts them).

I am proud that she is trying to better herself!

Noah got attacked by a dog last week!

Last week Noah was in the backyard playing, his mom was out there with him and I was in town doing a class when a part Chihuahua part something bigger attacked him and bit him in the face! He had bites right on the eye lid that could only be seen if he closed his eye which shows how close it came to his eye!

The dog did not even live close to us!! Two days later we had to call the police because the dog was loose again! Thankfully the idiots had the responsibility to have gotten the rabies shots for the dog!! I don't know what I will do if I see it in my yard again!! Noah loves dogs and it is a wonder the dog did not ruin that!!

Just seems like everything is DOWN!

A sad time for me, trying to get my mood up but not feeling well does not help the matter at all! Just can't seem to feel better about the anniversary of moving here! Don't care about tomorrow being a special day for me. And The Memory Safe is not working right so I can't escape there! Daughters hubby's grandmother died so they leave tomorrow for N.Y. so they won't be here for tomorrow. Just adds to all going wrong!

Don't get me wrong I do not blame my daughter, it just seems that every year September STINKS! and this year is the worst! I hate this move! I am so lonely for my friends! I feel like I have no support system!!

I can't believe I wanted so bad to move out of this house in NY to a bigger better one for years and now I wish I was back there!

Anniversary of leaving on a jet plane!

Thursday Sept. 21st will mark the 1year anniversary of when I flew out of New York to Mn. for my new home. Although we did not move into the new house until mid October. Hubby was already in Mn. for about 3 weeks so I sat in the airport crying and my best friend called and sang "I'm leaving on a jet plane" to me! so then I was laughing and crying!

I sure do miss Nikki!! I kept thinking time would make a difference in adjusting to Mn. but it has been a year and I am just as lonely!!! Saturday night a group of a dozen ladies from my church in NY called me from the annual ladies retreat I went to and look forward to each year! A totally awesome event! The called and sang to me and told me they missed me and although I totally appreciated the call and it made me feel good it also made me feel even more down.

I wish I could figure out how to pull myself out of this, but I can't seem to figure out what to do! The church we go to is good but there doesn't seem to be anyone that I can click with as a close friend, or someone that I consider a friend. Just "church friends" I guess but not ones to go shopping with or call or confide in, etc.

Okay enough ho hum, Sorry to be such a downer today!!!

Labor day trip to Como zoo and botanical gardens

On Labor day we all headed out to Como zoo! Grandma and Pop pop, Aunt Mindy, Uncle Mike, Jay (daddy) Amy (mommy) Chelsea, Emily, Jay Jay and Noah! Got photos of everyone but Amy as she did not want any photos! It was a great day for the kids, they enjoyed themselves! A great zoo! I decided not to do any animal photos as I have lots of them and focus on the kids! But could not resist a few flowers!!

Apple, peaches, pumpkin pie, who is not ready, holler I! I! I!

I don't think I am ready! BUT Jason was much more ready today then yesterday when he went to just meet the teacher!

Today my first grandson went to kindergarten and it was a hard day for grandma! I just can't believe that little baby that was as small as grandpa's hand is already in kindergarten!!

I can't wait for him to come home so I can listen to him tell me with excitement in his voice of all the adventures of the day! Posted by Picasa

Went for a ride today! WOW

We ended up over on the Wiscounsin side of the Mississippi and went up on a bluff for a drop dead beautiful view! So great! Saw some Eagles flying! Just breath taking!
Ended up going through a neat little historic town called Alma and going into some of the coolest shops! Shops that looked liked the general store on Little house on the prarie! But duh the camera was in the car for that part!!

After doing this post I found out about this neat addition so am adding more pictures although some look funny since they were taken with the camera turned sideways so hubby looks a bit mishaped!
