+++Heavenly Party+++

I don't know all that goes on in Heaven, but for the sake of moving on and for my girls I have been trying to make events that were about my Mom in some way (ie birthday, death day, mother's day etc....) somewhat uplifting, without forgetting why we do it.  So here is another post about my Mom.   Her birthday was January 17.  She would have been 55, but Kairi and Kesslynn don't care about that.  So we decided to have a "Grandma Jo's 3rd Heavenly Birthday Party."  Complete with cake, ice cream, party hats and the aforementioned party favors.   Kairi is always up for a party and had been counting down the days until this birthday party was to commence.  On that day, she awoke before the rest of us and came downstairs and decorated the table- getting the table cloth in place, setting up the crowns, plates, napkins, paper cups etc.  It was the evening, before we got to do it, but she didn't care.  She and Kesslynn decorated the cake and then we all sang "Happy Birthday" and danced to "Ring of Fire."  (Ring of Fire has no significance that I am aware of, the girls just love to dance to it)....  You may or may not care about this, but sometimes there are those who could use some good ideas as to how to keep your loved one in your life- without all the sadness.  I CHOOSE how to handle this, because I couldn't when she died.......

I hate CHARLIE and I want to kill his HORSE


There are many, many, many joys of pregnancy to be discussed. However, can I just say that the one that always gets me comes right about now- 8 weeks before delivery. There is nothing like being on the threshold of waking, streching your body to it's limits and the start of day and--- WHAM!!!!! getting a calf or two tied up in a knot that you feel would take a hundred breadmakers 6 days to knead out of your muscle..... And that is why I want to kill Charlie's Horse.......
