The Circus

Last night we took the kids to the Ringling Bros Circus. We had row 2 seats, and they were absolutely perfect. The first half was a lot of clowns that did slapstick comedy which seriously cracked Mikey up. He was laughing so hard that the people around us kept turning around to look at him. He was so cute. Jovie liked the ponies, and the Lemonade that Michael had bought her. The second half was more of the daredevil stuff like the trapeze which the kids didn't find as entertaining. We ended up leaving a few minutes early because Jovie was falling asleep and Mikey was getting really ancy. It was a really fun night, and I'm so glad that we went.

My Prayers Have Been Answered!!!!!!!

OMG!!!! I still can't believe it!. Something of gigantic proportion has finally happened. The Detroit Lions have fired Matt Millen. I'm still in shock from the news I have gotten. I absolutely can't believe that the parasite is finally gone from our organization. I've been hoping and wishing and screaming for this to happen for years now, and the time has finally come. I'm off to do ten thousand back flips and scream from the rooftops. My entire week has just been made. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Ten Things I Love About Michael

I love my husband so much, and appreciate everything he does for me. I don't think that I always show it, so I decided to write a list of 10 things that I love about him...

10. He is willing to continue watching my Lions play even though they continue to lose week after week, or year after year.

9. He has an excellent sense of humor that makes me smile every day.

8. He can be like a big kid that can entertain our kids for hours just by giving them funny looks.

7. He is smart, sexy, handsome, and adorable all rolled into one man.

6. He always remembers the important dates.

5. He works hard every single day to provide a beautiful home and a full pantry for our family.

4. He always tries to be helpful to others and is always thoughtful to their needs

3. He shows so much patience to me especially in the trying times (like when I'm a hormonal maniac!) He also ALWAYS treats me like a Princess even when I don't deserve it.

2. He has given me three of the most perfect children in the world.

1. He completes my life in every way, shape, and form.

I love you Michael. Thanks for everything you do.

Time To Celebrate!

I have recently started watching my nephew three times a week. It's going to be pretty easy since his is only a little younger than Mikey, so they play together all day long. I decided that this would be a very good time to get Jovie potty trained, and I think that we were finally successful. She's now officially grown from a toddler to a little girl. Now I have to start all over again with diapers in the Spring. For now, I'm just going to enjoy the freedom.

What About Me?

Yesterday I took my kids into Jamba Juice to get a smoothie with a gift card that I've had since my birthday in March. I only ordered one because I figured that I could just share a little with my kids after we got home. I picked up my drink, and as we were leaving Jovie stopped in the middle of the store and said "Mama, what about me?". She was wondering where her drink was, and she said it in the sweetest most innocent voice. Right then I thought to myself, What about Jovie? I've been so focused on Mikey lately with all of his new events, and haven't really given Jovie the props that she deserves. Luckily today she started her new dance class which is a Mom and Tot class that gave me some alone time with her. She did SO well with it. I was very impressed by the way that she picked it up so quickly. She walked on the balance beam without any help from me, and even did a few somersaults all by herself. I'm really proud of how big she is getting. Jovie is definitely growing out of the Toddler stage and into the Little Girl stage. She now has to let us know what her favorite things are. She reminds us that Purple is her favorite color and Ajax is her favorite dog (I'm not sure where she gets that from hmmmm) every single day. Her most favorite person in the entire world is her Daddy. Rightly so since he's one of my favorite people too!

More News...

I just wanted to share that we are very excited to announce that we are expecting a new little one next year. We have already been checked out at the doctor, and have a little heartbeat. We are keeping our fingers crossed that everything will go well from here on out. Michael and I have decided to NOT find out the sex of this baby as well. I really want to enjoy this great adventure as it is the last time that I will be pregnant. This child will definitely complete our family.

Yay For Mikey!

So after the disaster Soccer game two weeks ago, Mikey came back with a vengeance. Not only did he participate in the Soccer practice, he played a very aggressive game against the Oreos. The Roaring Dinosaurs ended up losing this game, but they are very determined to try beating the team next week. Mikey was so cute, and played a tough game. He even took a couple of kids out showing that Football probably really is his sport of choice. I'm beyond proud of my little guy. I feel as though a huge weight has been taken off of my shoulders as I watch his confidence grow. I can't wait to see what else he is capable of.

Jovie was supposed to start her Dance classes this week, but missed it due to yet another throat infection. She will most likely have her Tonsils taken out next year. Mikey started his new preschool, and seems to really like it. Otherwise, it has been a very boring week. We are definitely looking forward to the NFL games tomorrow. Football season is here folks! It's the most wonderful time of the year!
