Rain drops keep falling on my head.....

Its a BEAUTIFUL rainy day today. I love rainy days. It makes me happy. I'm sitting here at the computer with my window open listening to the rain and smelling its fresh scent. My kids are completely content in our little three bedroom apartment, doing there own things and its just been a wonderful day.

We have no plans of anyone joining us for a Memorial day BBQ, I am just completely satisfied spending the day with my four Big/little kids.

We got fixing's for a yummy fruit salad, topped with cool whip, sub sandwiches and iced tea. Its a good day.

On the pregnancy front, I am not doing so good. My spirits are very very high and I am happy as a lark, but my body is doing poorly. LOL All of this of course is normal pregnancy related stuff but it sure is uncomfortable.

I was trying to get some video of my belly while baby boy was moving...but my little Skyler kept coming over and rubbing my belly saying "baby in there?" So sweet. Ill keep working on those videos and see if I cant get a good one.

Tomorrow my mom goes into MAJOR back surgery. My sister is coming over and watching the three kids that WONT be in school while I go to the hospital. We will take turns being with my mom. Please pray that my moms surgery is successful and it will get her out of this pain she has been living with for almost a year. She already struggles with Multiple Sclerosis so the added back problems are just terrible for her. I will be at the hospital most of the day but I will have my moms blackberry, which has Internet access. BONUS!!!!!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Memorial day. I know I am. (wink)

I sent your mom an email yesterday. I just wanted her to know I was thinking of her. Poor thing! Its horrible that she is going thru so much pain. Does she know why it started? I too will be thinking of her tomorrow. keep us updated on her surgery k?
I wish I was there in colorado to enjoy the gorgeous weather. Someday i will live in a place besides the desert, and I will be able to enjoy all "4" seasons rather than the "2" we have in phx. *laugh* I know you know what Im talking about.
take a hug for me! Enjoy your memorial day. Dont forget to thank your dad for the services he gave our country. I'm gonna send him an email when i get off here. I already sent one to jim.
Ok,,, love you cousin! Love you forever.
OH! I cant believe you just got that card! Snail mail is most certainly named correctly!

Saw your Tweet that surgery went well for your Mom. I'm so glad. She will continue to be in my prayers.
Along with YOU...I pray that your body will be as comfortable as possible in these late stages of pregnancy.
