AJ's Birthday Party

















The first picture is AJ with his pirate ship cake! He has inherited that trait from my side of the family that makes our eyes close when we smile! The second picture is of Mommy and Baby Will, right after he got up from his nap -- he was not really awake yet!
We had a great time and it was wonderful seeing the grandkids -- even though we didn't get to see Briana -- she was at her mother's for the weekend. Stephanie has started babysitting for a couple of boys full time now. One is AJ's age and his brother is almost two, so I think she has her hands full! We haven't spent much time together -- I haven't been up for a day trip since Steve started his treatments and we both miss it. So, two more weeks of treatments (and I'll be driving five of those days and going up with Steve & Kim on the last day), and then maybe I can take a day and go visiting. Talking on the phone just isn't the same -- especially when she's busy with 4 kids during the day!

Speaking of the phone -- my phone bills have been quite high lately. Both local and long distance. I did buy a new cell phone with a new service company and a package with lots of minutes, so I'm going to try using it more and our local phone less. My biggest problem with the cell phone is that I tend to talk at the same time that I listen! It's a bit difficult to do that with a cell! So now I have to learn to listen more and talk less -- probably not a bad thing to learn!

Gratitudes:
We had good driving weather yesterday and we rode with Kevin & Deb -- which is a nice thing -- we don't have to drive and we get some time with just the two of them!
The housecleaning is done for the week and only two more loads of laundry left to do!

What a fun birthday cake! My Little Boy all of a sudden went from Backyardigans to pirates, Scooby Doo, etc. in one quick hurry. Wow, they grow up so fast!

Check out skype.com for your phone situation - you might really like it. We use it all the time and anyone we call Skype to Skype is free - if you are calling someone with a land line it is very reasonable, even internationally!

Cheers!
