The boy turned 8.

Well... he's 8. My son turned 8 yesterday. I can't beleive that it's been 8 years since he was born. It just doesn't seem like that long ago and I remember it so clearly. That's the weird thing about getting older. When we were young, 8 years ago was hazy and hard to remember - if at all. Now, in my 30's 8 years ago is clear. Anyway, here's a few pictures. He got a scooter, Super Smash Bros Brawl & an Eyeclops. I have more pictures of the cake on my cake blog.

The wit and wisdom of 4 year olds.

My 4 year old can be quite witty sometimes. Yesterday, as we were in the car she asked me "Why is called Illinois? Is it full of annoying people?" See, she heard "Ill annoy" when saying it. I had to laugh at this since my family is from "Ill Annoy". I did tell her that no, people in Illinois are not annoying (ok, maybe except one cranky old man that is friends with my grandmother, but other than that I won't generalize for the whole state).

On that note, just a thought. My grandmother who is 86 isn't doing so well. She fell yesterday and went into the hospital. Today my mother called to tell me she's having hip replacement surgery next week. I can't say that I truly feel major surgery at her age is the wisest choice, but to her it's the only choice. I think she'd rather be dead than confined to bed for the rest of her life.

No, Illinois isn't full of annoying people. My dear sweet old grandmother is there.

Back to Reality

So, after more than a week in Florida we came back to Wisconsin. The plus was that the snow was almost melted away, the con was that it's still cold. But spring is coming I can feel it. The tulips are starting to peek out of the ground and everything seems to be coated with dust. I need to do some spring cleaning, but the dreary cool weather doesn't make me very perky. When it's in the 70's & sunny - I get spring fever big time. This weekend was almost like that, but I was stuck inside all weekend working (one of the cons for being gone so long).

I have a ton of Wilton classes to teach this month. This is good since I had to spend $600 fixing the car last week.

My son turns 8 later this month. I cannot beleive it's been 8 years since he was born. It feels like yesterday. Well... not yesterday, but almost.
