Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! We had such an amazing day. It really was fun. And my little man, he looked oh so cute! He was a fireman this year. Yes, my husband went out and bought him this costume!

But my little man sure did look handsome. We spent the morning at the Farmers Market. Where they had a parade for the kids. It was so cute! And of course, Mikey was a HUGE flirt. Only my son! He and Spot won for the 1 year old group. We were so proud!

This evening, we took Mikey trick or treating. Something we skipped out on last year. Oh last year, he was so cute. He was a dalmatian. Very cute! But this year, we went to a few houses. Actually, we went through 2 neighborhoods. And stopped to see some of the guys from the Fire Station. They were handing out trick-or-treat bags.

We had such a great time! And Mikey had a blast. We have candy for years. No lie! One of our neighbors dumped her entire candy bowl in a bag and gave it to us! Yes, my son was showing his cutie smile! Now, I'm going to go curl up on the couch with my hubby, and dig into our candy. :)

I don't know if I mentioned this. But we got Mikey a puppy. A real dalmatian. So cute! And they're already the best of pals. Spot, our dog, sleeps under Mikey's crib when he's napping or sleeping at night. I think it's adorable! And they are really best friends already. I think Spots is the best present we could have gotten Mikey for his birthday. :)

Mikey's Birthday Party

We had an amazing birthday party for Mikey today. We had so many friends and family over. And all the guys from the Fire House showed up too! Mike was really happy about that. Mikey got so many gifts! I swear, we don't have to buy him clothes or toys for a long time! I mean a long, long time!

I owe a lot to my friend Lola. Who completely hooked us up for the party! She made Mikey's cake. I wish I had a way to get my pictures from my camera to my computer. It was so cute. A fire truck. With a little dalmatian! And she made a bunch of the decorations for us. Thank you so much Lola! And she came way early to help us decorate, put together the gift bags, and help with some of the cooking.

Our families were amazing too! Helping us with all the cooking. Thank you guys so much! It was amazing. And it was so yummy! and we just had a great time. Mikey just loved ripping all the wrapping paper. I think he enjoyed it more than the actual presents. Silly boy!

Well, my son is asleep. Our house is...well it survived. And we have lots of family over. Me, I'm ready for a nap. I'm definitely ready for a few hours of good sleep. But we had an incredible time. I really enjoyed my son's 1st birthday party. I hope he had a great time too!

I'm so exhausted! But it's great to have Mike home. :) And today was moving today. Lots and lots of stuff! How did we fit all this in our apartment? I still have no clue. But all the guys from the fire house came to help. Thanks so much!

Our house is in shambles. Complete shambles. But some new furniture was delivered today. :) And all we really cared to put up was our bed and Mikey's crib. Which looks adorable! It's nice that Mike got the painting done yesterday. That way we could start putting Mikey's room together.

Oh, and it's been raining. A lot. It's ridiculous! But there's nothing we could do. But get our stuff from our apartment to our house. And we did that. The next few days, I'm going to have to work hard to get our house in order. You know, I have 4 days...

But we have some good news. Our friend Jose is back from Iraq. He has been out there forever! And he is going to be getting out of the military soon. He was so happy to be home. And his wife Jelly, she was so excited to have him home. We all enjoyed a big "Welcome Home" dinner. So much fun!

Well, I'm falling asleep here. And I have so much to do the next few days. Please send me all your positive thoughts. I'm going to need them. :)

Happy Birthday Little Man!

Dear Little Man,

Happy Birthday! You turned 1 today. You are such a big boy. We went to your doctor's appointment earlier this week. He said you are perfect. Absolutely perfect! I already knew that!

Your Daddy surprised us all! He came home early this morning. With a big birthday cake too! We are so lucky to have him. And all the guys at the fire house. They made it possible for your Daddy to come today. :)

I still can't believe you're 1. It feels like I just found out I was going to have a baby. When I think about you, I still see your little newborn face. But my baby is growing into my little man. Too cute you are! I love to cuddle with you in the mornings. And I absolutely melt when you start to flirt. You're just like your daddy. Flirting all the time! :)

This morning you just loved tearing up all the paper. I think you liked the wrapping paper more than you liked your presents this morning. Daddy and you just loved playing with all your new fire trucks.

Other things that you are doing that just surprise me, well you've been walking for about 2 months. But you are getting a lot better at it. Definitely not falling as much. But when you fall, you usually just laugh and smile. And you are definitely a good eater like your daddy. Hmm, you really liked your birthday cake too!

This past year has gone too quickly. It really has. But it has been so much fun being your mommy. I can't believe how amazing you little man! And I'm so happy to be your mommy. I can't wait to see what this year is going to bring for us! I hope you enjoy it all!


Your ♥Mommy♥

Have I mentioned Eastwick on my blog? I don't know. But I really, really like this show! The characters are amazing. And honestly, I just like this show. It sorta reminds me of Lipstick Jungle. Another show that I loved. but it got cancelled. Oh, I hope this one doesn't get cancelled. I would cry.

If you haven't seen Eastwick, I would recommend you take a look. It's cute and quirky. These 3 are amazing. And the storyline is good. I haven't seen it advertised on ABC. And only stumbled on it one night looking for a show to watch. I'm glad I found it!

He's Coming Home!!!

All my fingers and toes are crossed! If no new fires start up, and if they continue to do progress, Mike gets to come home in 10 days!!! Yes, 10 days!!! I'm so excited!

I did change Mikey's birthday party. I guess I didn't think about a lot of things. Like our friends are going to be out of town. Mike was going to be working. And we're moving. Oh, and I'm just overwhelmed. So the party is set for October 25th. Now, I'm really happy!

My hubby is coming home. He's safe. My son is happy and healthy. Oh, and the packing is going better. Just keep us in your prayers. Please. We need a break here.

How Do They Do It?

Just thinking about this. How do military wives do it? I mean their husbands are deployed for 6 months to a year at a time. Lots of times, they're husbands are in wars. I just don't know how they do it. Honestly, I repect them so very much. I can barely handle that my husband is gone fighting a wildfire. Because there is so much going on. And I'm so very worried about him. Wow! I just need to breathe. It's going to get better.

So Much Fun

We went to a friend's party today. It was for Sarita. She is Lola's goddaughter. Lots and lots of fun! OMG, the food was so good. I hate so much! And now, I can barely breathe. But it was so good! And let me tell you, they know how to throw a yummy party. :)

Mikey and I also went to the Farmers Market. It was so good! We try and go every Saturday. I just love how good the food tastes. You know, fresh and yummy. Oh, and everything just has more flavor. Not only did we buy some delicious apples and lots of veggies. But we also bought 3 bags of Kettle Korn. That's pretty normal for us. Because it's so good! And we snack on it all week.

We've had a fun Saturday. But now, I'm going to go get some packing done. Maybe I'll get on the treadmill for a little while first. Because, I really did eat too much. And I feel uncomfortable too.
