It has been a long 6 weeks. We have said goodbye to a cherished grandmother and welcomed a beautiful new life into our extended family.

One of our very close and loved friends was in a devestating car accident. I have started a new job and spare time has been spent loving the moments we spend as a family. Life is short we all know that but these past 6 weeks have just confirmed that life can change in an instant.
Enjoy every moment.

I am very excited about tomorrow. We welcome a new President one that we all hope can change our world. I will be spending the evening with family and friends watching this historic moment. The time has come for change. Here is a little recap from Nov 4 just to recapture that feeling.

Vomit & Madi's Birthday

I did not make back yesterday but I do have a good explanation. I have been sick with the vomit comet flu since wens and yesterday it infected Ms. Madi. She put me to shame with her vomit comet skilz. WoO hOo that girl can hurl.

We tallied it up today on a trip to the grocery. I counted 4 and she said 2. I had to explain to her that the number of times hurled is counted by the number of areas in which you mar with vomit. Luke's bed & wall count as 1 because the wall was caused by splatter from bed. The complete masking of the toilet in my bathroom counts as #2. The 3rd was the floor of the bedroom and the 4th was the masking of their toilet. See logically it was 4. She counts it as the number times she got up to run for the pot. So she counts 2. Hmm kid logic I bet $100 when it is her kid doing the hurling on her floor it will be 4 not me...

In other news it is Ms. Madi's 9th birthday today. 9 years ago last night I was enjoying a beautiful pan of lasagna with friends and watching movies. I remember being a bit aggitated we had been to the hospital that morning and was sent home because I was not dialated. WoO HoO a little vagina talk sorry guys:) But damn I was uncomfortable just little twinges of pain all day and evening and a desire to pee every 3.2 seconds. After our friends left Brent went to bed and I sat up because the pound of noodles and gooey yummy cheese was not sitting right. I was feeling a little funky about 3 hours later and woke Brent up cause I knew something was not right. This was my 1st time of going into labor unassisted so the signs were unknown to me until I was really in dire need of being at the hospital. With Lillian I went from a 4-10cm in less than 5 minutes and then had a baby 2 pushes later. I had no clue what transition was I just knew it was a bit painful and we should move it along. I remember Brent telling me the entire trip to the hospital "Do NOT push Melissa, BREATH" we arrived at the hospital and in less than an hour we had Madi. A fierce screaming red head that had big clear blue eyes and the pinkest lips.

9 years later she has faded to a delightful strawberry blonde with freckles and sparkling blue eyes. She is a spitfire with that red head temper is still going full speed. She is my mini me. My sweetie, Maisi Pie, Trucker Mouth Sally, Lil Bit and Diva Brato Supremo. Happy Birthday Madi!! I love you babygirl:)

I had an amazing holiday with my family and friends. The food was excellent and the wine bountiful. I am lazing the day away in my jammies. Today is a day of rest for me. I did some black friday shopping but a slight hangover helped me back into bed at 7:30am until 1. Now I am feeling relaxed, my mom sent me this video and I had to share:o
