Well the countdown has begun towards the second milestone birthday for us this year. Our oldest turned 13 back in May & now our little baby boy Rylan will be 1 on Friday. I am still in disbelief of how quick this last year has gone by. Course I always think this way when all my kids birthdays come up. But it is true time really does go by fast. Rylan's birthday will be especially sad for me though because he is our last child. The last time we will ever have a child turn 1. So needless to say we will be having ourselves a little bash on Sunday with all of our family & friends to celebrate his birthday. It should be a fun day, just really hoping & praying it doesn't rain so we can have it outside. Along with thinking about Rylan's birthday party I also had thoughts about my Mamie (great-grandmother). She just passed away on June 20th. So I've been a little sad that she won't be there with us for his special day. I just try to think she will be there in spirit. She had a wonderful long life, she made it to 100. But it still hurts. My LuLu bell was really close to her, they had a cute little bond. One of the hardest things I ever had to do was tell her Mamie had died. But I know that we will all get through it.
On a brighter note I'm thinking of either taking the kids to the movies or the lake tommorow. My sister, her kids,Kimmy & her daughter will be tagging along with us. Whatever we end up doing we will have fun I'm sure! I love being home with my kids and having the freedom to do all these great things with them! A big thanks to the hubby for working so much so that I can be a stay at home mom! And of course the fact that it's summer is wonderful too!
