lookie!!

Look what I woke up to this morning.....it is the simplest card....but it took my breath away....last night I was just beat, so I went to bed early...and she stayed up watching t.v......well she must've made me this card...and I had no idea...and this is what she wrote inside....dear mommy..I wrote you this note because I know you don't have daddy but I wanted to make sure you had someone to give you a card and say they love you...so I love you mommy!!" that is so sweet...I guess i do have a sweetheart after all.....I know it's hard for my girls, 'cause they've watched their dad spoil me all these years....I know it's a hallmark holiday or whatever, but it was always important for ed...even if we were broke to show...that I was his sweetheart...It was funny when my brother first started dating michelle...he wasn't really good at the holiday things with her...and ed actually pulled him aside...and gave him the talk...about what a man should do...I remember he told him it's not really about the holiday..it's about making them happy..and feel special....and even if you just pick up a single rose...it will make her day...and I think he learned......that it's the little things.....so yesterday I came home...and just wanted to plop on the couch, but Sommer wanted to do something....so she suggested that we go to apple charlies....and I'm so glad we did.....

I'm so happy my girls aren't bitter about this holiday...that losing their dad at halloween...hasn't made them....want to erase the holiday...or not celebrate...they both are just so open....
the fountain...in their pond....beautiful!!



I was teasing her that these is becoming our signature pose.....
and here is our lil' pumpkin we picked out getting on the scale!! hee,hee...I know how he feels....but he only weighed 6 pounds...and at .35cents a pound he's a steal
I love cut off pics.......
and then sommer took the camera...and took a pic of me holding my pumpkin, next to my pumpkin....and check out my new window sticky.....Linda from scrappy chic gave me that one.....missed my old one I used to have on my van... after that went to my girl jenieces...and hung out for awhile...and then had to get home for a new episode of ghost whisperer!!!

Geez Staci, lots of great pics! I think of you every time I see an orange Edge. I think I'd like to have that color too. BUt it's just the Staci stalker in me! Wish Ed could have pulled Eric aside because I didn't even know it's Sweetest Day! hee hee Well, you have a good day with the girls. Sommer is so sweet, maybe you should get her a little something. :)

Looks like your girls will take after their daddy. Sommer is so sweet to make a card especially for you. It made me tear-up. I love all your pictures and actually looked up to see where Apple Charlies is.
