Vacation is over :(

Maeyln, Sasha & Yogi were all so happy to have Jeremy home again. Even though they have their own bed that they sleep in (their own couch that is), while Jeremy was home they slept with him in his bed.

It goes without saying of course, but I love having Jeremy home and am looking forward to his next visit! I'm not going to go into all the mushy details because my eyes will water more than they are and then I won't be able to see to type. I'm his proud mom, so you can only guess how I feel. Oh and while he was home I made him two Sterling Silver band rings and forgot to take pictures of them! Ugh!

Jeremy went back to Portland on Sunday (sniff sniff, boo hoo) and I'm not the only one who misses him. Maelyn continues to sleep in Jeremy's bed on his pillow (I still need to put the futon up, but not yet). Each night at bedtime we always tell our 'kids' good-night and every night so far we find Maelyn all curled up on his pillow. It's the cutest and saddest thing ever!
I finally got the pictures from the lake downloaded and need to send them to Jeremy. They aren't the best quality as I used a disposable camera, but it works. Oh and I love that we can get CD's made when you get your pictures developed!

The lake was a blast, we all took turns in the big water tube and race car tube that Chris has - so much fun!

The family knows that no matter what the occasion, I ALWAYS bring my camera and sometimes I take too many pics, but heck, I love keeping memories on film as well as in my heart. My boys know that my "just one more picture" quote is like saying "in just a minute" and I know it gets old for them, but what can I say - that's just me :)

Above, Laura is showing my boys, Jeremy & Jason, a picture she took of the both of us prior to their arrival at Jeremy's surprise birthday party. She had put tin foil (shivers!) on her teeth to make it look like she had braces (since I now wear them) and we both smiled real big - it was pretty funny. My sister. I think I'll keep her.

Happy Monday, er, I mean Tuesday!


Oh and if you're interested in seeing me kick Mark's but in boxing, check out Laura's blog :)

The leaving is always the hardest part. ACK!! LOL I always leave my son's bed unmade for a few days after he leaves. How sad is that??? LOL I allow myself one full day of grieving, then I get myself back in gear. **BIG HUGS**

I'm sending you tons of positive vibes today :)

On a brighter note, I think I'm going to have to buy one of those WII's. That looks like too much fun :)

I won't kid you..I still feel the pain of my girl leaving..They are all married and don't live near us, only 1 1/2 hours away, but not close when you have children in school,etc..When this house is full, it is a happy home..like you, I always walk by the bedrooms and I feel an empty spot. I keep telling my husband, we got to get a life!

You have such a wonderful family... *sigh*

I know the bittersweet feels you hold my sweet friend. Time passes so quickly that soon he'll be back with you again.

It's amazing how our "other" family members are so sensitive as well. Our cat reacts the same way when the boys are here with us and then gone.

We can never have too many photo memories of our times together!
