A whole lot of catching up to do!

Wow, I haven't posted since October 1st...

I feel overwhelmed with how much has happened, but since I didn't make a list I can't seem to think of much blog worthy...EXCEPT...

Daniel asked Kristi to be his wife and she said, YES!  We are getting a new member of the family next July!  To be honest, Kristi already feels like a member of the family, but we will celebrate with them, cry tears of joy with them, and help bless their marriage on July 9, 2011.  Lexi will gain another wonderful Aunt and Jason and I will be honored to call Kristi our sister.  She is truly one of the sweetest people we have ever met.  Congratulations, Daniel (aka Uncle Do Do) and Kristi (aka Aunt Krissy).  We love you both!

The other blog worthy event is Grandma Mike's 65th birthday tomorrow!  Since it is a "big," "big" meaning significant, not large in number; Kim and I took Mom to Chicago to celebrate.  Mom had a reunion on Friday night and the only way we could get her to go was to book the trip for her.  We of course did not want her to go alone, so Kim and I joined her!  Mom went to the reunion with a friend while Kim and I spent some quality and much needed sister time together.  After the reunion Mom joined us and the three of us were together the rest of the weekend and had a blast!  It was the first time and certainly not the last time, we all took a trip together.  Daughters need their mothers, and mothers need their daughters.  This weekend proved this to be true.  We laughed, relaxed, talked, ate (a lot), and enjoyed every single minute of it.  It was trip I will never forget.  I love you, Mom.  Happy Birthday! 

Since the 2010-2011 is officially here, Jason was in New Jersey and in New York while I was in Chicago.  Lexi stayed in Dallas with Mimi and Paw Paw.  She once again had a blast with them and had a fun and busy weekend.  Thank you Mimi and Paw Paw for taking such great care of our baby girl (and Andie Ann)!
