Liam at the Zoo

Well we finally had some decent weather here on Sunday, and when I say decent, it went from 40 degrees on Saturday, to 80 degrees on Sunday...sheesh.  Cassie and I decided to take Liam to the zoo.  So, we headed to IHOP for breakfast first...and we had put sandals on Liam...weeelllll...he didn't know how to walk in them and kissed the cement sidewalk...not a pretty sight on his little forehead.  Poor little guy!




They didn't have alot of the animals out which was pretty sad considering it's not that big of a zoo.  He totally loves giraffe's...we watch Praise Baby DVD's all the time when I'm watching him and they have them on there.  The bad thing is that he's not old enough yet to follow when you're pointing at something, so if the animal didn't move, he really didn't get that there was anything there.  Oh well, we had an awesome time anyway and I love spending time with my kids!!!


Glenn and I are heading to Atlanta at the end of the month...I'll be working a couple of days and then we'll take a few more days and go fishing and visit a friend of mine.  Looking forward to a couple days away...but not being away from my little Liam!!!

Take care all...and have a wonderful Easter!

I've Been Soooo Bad!

Hi everyone,

Can't believe it's been so long since I've posted here on my blog.  With Facebook, it seems that's where I've been hanging out lately!  Plus, I've had some people leaving nasty comments on my last post...don't know what that was all about...

Let's see...what's new?  Work is still work...my bosses travel have been traveling so much lately, and when that happens, I either work from home or as was the case last week, Glenn and I went ice fishing and snowmobiling up north.  It was fun, but the snow had started to melt, got cold and then turned to ice, which is hard when you're trying to drive a snowmobile!

Liam is getting so big....this is from Christmas, but I just love that smile of his.  Can't believe he's 16 months old...where does the time go!  Still trying to get him to say "gamma"...he has no trouble with "gampa"...lol!



This is what the kids got me for Christmas...portraits of the three of them together...and then one of each of them separately. 


And here is little peanut riding on the quad with gampa...all you hear from him when he's in the house is...vrooom vroom and he points to the garage!


I haven't been thrifting in I don't know how long.  Don't know how Liam will do with going into stores with breakables...and I definitely am NOT going to be carrying him!

Well, I'm going to try to wander around and visit y'all...it's been such a long time and I've missed everyone so much!

Love and big hugz,
Michele

Week in Chicago

Last weekend, Glenn and I were in Chicago for a convention for work.  It was fun, but definitely tiring...and alot of work.  I cannot believe how expensive that town is...$6 for a small bottle of water...$22 for a breakfast buffet....what?  I never eat $22 worth of food for breakfast.  Here is my boss, Tom, toasting our new company at our booth...it was called the American Academy of Ophthalmologists (eye surgeons).  I can't believe he's our CEO and running this company...he's so intelligent!


This is me...cutting into a pigs eye (it's what we use for demonstrations)...the knife I'm using is one of our products.  I thought I wouldn't be able to do it, but I did!


Glenn, Cassie and I took Liam to the pumpkin farm...he's still kind of small and didn't really understand what was going on, but we took pictures anyway!



Glenn and I are off to Charleston, SC on Tuesday...for our Sales Meeting.  We're going to stay a couple of days longer and go deep sea fishing.  I'm so ready for some time off...it's been quite crazy at work lately.

Hope everyone has a great Halloween...I'm thinking of putting up my Christmas tree when we get back...ya, I know, I'm crazy.  I've been playing Christmas songs on my computer at work...honestly, it's the only thing that puts me in a good mood!

Take care...miss y'all!

I really hate when kids grow up....

It seems like just yesterday that Cassie was delivering my precious little grandson, and now he's almost a year old. He always wants to be on the "go" and has absolutely no fear.  He's climbing and is so close to walking...stands there and looks at you like "oh no, no one is holding me"!

He really loves his gampa...and gampa is teaching him all kinds of things...like how to turn the lights off!!!



I love this picture...Cassie can really get him laughing!!!


This is the first time I took him to the park...he loves swinging!!!


I've really been looking forward to putting out my fall and Halloween decorations.  Liam is having such fun with the lights I put around the windows. I wasn't able to put out all the breakable decor, but for this year, I like how it looks.

I've been able to get around to visiting a few of you now and then.  I'm busy planning our sales meeting...it's in Charleston, SC, so I'm very much looking forward to spending a few days after the meeting is over with Glenn..hoping to get in some deep sea fishing!!!

Hope all is well with all of you...miss you!!

I've Missed You Guys!

Things have been quite a bit crazy here lately, but finally starting to slow down at work.  I've really missed checking in with you girls and finding out what's been going on.

Glenn and I went 4-wheeling up in northern Wisconsin last weekend...what a fun time we had.  But then he called me at work Monday morning...someone had stolen our quads...we had them sitting on our trailer in the backyard.  Unbelieveable...I always felt so safe in this neighborhood.  How these jerks could just come into our yard and take something that wasn't theirs...and the keys weren't even in the ignition, so they would have to hot-wire them to be able to ride. The police have been around to all the neighbors and asking them to keep their eyes open...and I put together a flyer that I'm going to pass out too.  I'm just so pissed off that this happened...and we didn't have insurance either...:(

On to something happier...here's some recent pics of little Liam...can't believe he's 9 months old already. He definitely keeps Gamma and Gampa hopping when we're watching him.  He's so funny and always bring a smile to my face...I love him so much!


Hopefully, now that things have slowed down, I'll be able to visit y'all...I have lots of catching up to do!

Take care..and big hugz!
