Welcome and the latest happenings

Well, it is a new year and I have a new blog!! Wesley keeps insisting that his mother "needs" a blog, so here it is, just for you, Wes.

I don't know that I have a lot to say unless it's about my beautiful family which consists of my wonderful husband, Eric, my fun and lovable son Wes, lovely wife Mary, and last, but not least my sweet, adorable love of my life grandson, Daniel who is 16 months old.

Daniel took his first steps on January 1st. How fitting. It was also on January 1st of 2007 they found out that they would be having a baby (their first) sometime late summer. He arrived on August 30 and I haven't quit bragging about him to all my friends, family, patients, and anyone else who would listen since then. He has the cutest ways and is the friendliest baby I have ever seen and that is the truth. Even when he is crying sometimes, he takes a split second to give a big toothy grin and that melts my heart every time.

We enjoyed having them at the house from Monday before Christmas until about 3:00 Christmas day when they had to return home to enjoy their Christmas at their home, which I can understand. It's important for them to start their own little traditions with their own family time. I did hate to see them go, though. Lucky for me and Eric, they came again last night and spent the night with us. We had coffee, freshly roasted beans compliments of Wes, an boy was it good!! We always get samples of new coffees when he visits. Need I say we look forward to the coffee, well, not as much as the bonding time we have with them.

I might be experiencing a little post-holiday depression of a sort. I felt like going back to bed after they left for home this morning, so I took my Sudoku puzzles and a Southern Living mag and went to my bedroom. After working a puzzle or 2, I fell asleep and enjoyed a nice restful nap. Eric went to the boat to take some measurements for putting in a stove. That is just one of the many projects he has going on at the time to make the boat trips a little more easy.

Last night we watched a movie called "Eagle Eye" It was a suspenseful and entertaining movie. It was a curious thing that the same actress, Rosario Dawson, starred in it and also starred in the movie that Eric and I went to see Friday night at the Carmike 12 in Morristown which also starred Will Smith--"Seven Pounds". Now that was a real tear jerker at the end. It was a case where one did the most giving thing a person can do for another human being. Maybe he did it out of guilt, but still, it was a totally selfless act which he did. Jesus said " Greater love hath no man than he lay down his life for his friends." I think this movie could be summed up by this statement. Better go watch it again!!!

Til next time...........
