Every November 28, I wonder what she wonders

My Boy, he turned 4 yesterday.
I'm not saying this because I'm his mama. But he is the cutest, funniest, smartest, caring, compassionate, imaginative Boy I have ever seen. Again, it's just not 'cause I'm his mama. I swear.
About 10 times a day he asks me "Mommy, you sure you're happy?" I have NO idea where that came from. He started that about a year ago.
He'll say something he finds funny and says, "That was a joke, you get it?"
I love to listen to him playing when he has no idea I'm listening. He says the most imaginative, creative, WOW stuff, I've ever heard from a boy his age.
When we went on the Disney cruise without any provocation he said, " Thank you mommydaddy (yes, it's one word) I'm having soo much fun!"
He says I love you all the time. He's a good boy (that can have a temper to rival his goodness)
But it never fails. Every Nov. 28th, I wonder if she knows, realizes, or cares what she gave up.
Who walks away from that? I know it was for the best, whatever her reasons. She gave me the greatest gift one human can give another.
But it never fails, for what ever reason, I want her to know what a great son I have. Not what a good job I've done raising him. But what a wonderful Boy she gave birth to. What a wonderful little boy he is, all on his own. I know he would make her proud.
Does that make any sense?

Random photos..Because I am no where near organized

These are just a few random photos.
The Boy would NOT touch the sand. We had to put a towel down for him to sit on, on Disney's private island. So he sat on a towel and dug in the sand. Go figure. The only character pictures he would take was the first 2 days. Mickey in the terminal and chip and dale on the island. After that he was done with them. On Grand Cayman we visited the sea turtle sanctuary, which he loved. we saw turtles from 2500 lbs to 1 lb. It's an amazing set up they have to protect the sea turtles. He LOVED holding the turtles.
Ice cream on a 85 degree beach?? Is it ever a good idea? He thought so.
The little boat you see in front of the Disney Magic is the original pirate ship from Pirates of The Caribbean. Really cool ship to see.
In one of the restaurants they surprised us with the decorated plate for our anniversary. We never even told them that The Boy's birthday was the week after we got off the boat and the last night of the cruise after dinner they brought out a cake with the Disney Magic in chocolate to him for a Birthday cake. No detail gets passed them. It was amazing!
Our itinerary was Cape Canaveral, Disney's private island, Grand Cayman, Cozumel, Disney's private Island and 2 sea days. Loved it! If you have any questions, I'd be happy to answer them. We loved it and are planning on doing a 4 night in 2011.
I'll be posting more photos as I get to them.

HI, I'm Back

Wow! If you ever have the chance to take a Disney it.
I pinky promise to post more after Thanksgiving. With just having got back, I still have to unpack, Thanksgiving on Thursday and The Boy's 4th Birthday is Saturday!
So after Thanksgiving get ready to tell me to shut up about the cruise and no more pictures!

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving.

D@v!d The Pirate, part 1 & 2

What a difference a year makes.
The first picture is from 10/2008 and the second, this year 2009.
You can sort of tell how much he's grown by looking at the wooden sword. Same sword. His costume last year was size 18-24 months and this year a 4T. My Boy is getting so big.
He always wants to be a pirate, no matter how many costumes we look at. Next year I'm sure he will be a pirate with a little variation. It's good to know what you want to be in life.

Things A Mother Should NEVER have to hear

A Little Busy with My kids this time

This is my newest grandson, Rylan James. He looks just like his brother & sister. A whopping 7# 14 oz. He is the smallest of my oldest daughters babies. She now has a 4.5 yr old, a 2.5 yr old and a newborn. Better her than me. There are GOOD reasons she and her sisters were 4 yrs apart and David was 16 yrs younger than my youngest daughter. I need alot of time in between in re coop!
He's a cutie pie and a good eater just like his big brother and sister too.
Now we wait for my middle daughter to have our next grandson in December.
You can only imagine the crazy in my house on holidays.

Next up...the adventures of David the Pirate!
