In the Heart of the Sea

Joe called me at work yesterday morning wondering if I had anything planned when I got home from work, cause he would like to have a movie night. He has been asking me for a while now to watch In the Heart of the Sea, but I have been busy watching all my cools shows and stuff!
So we decided to watch it last night. It was very good.
It was fun to see stars in it that we know from other shows.
Like Michelle Fairley who play Catelyn Stark on Game of Thrones!! 
 And Frank Dillane who plays Nick on Fear the Walking Dead!


 


 And well...any show with Chris Hemsworth in it......NICE!!!!
 

Now I need to read the book Moby Dick!

Daphne is TWO!!!!!

It's so hard to believe that 2 years has gone by already and Daphne will have a new baby brother or sister in a little over a month! I am very excited to see this new addition to our family! Daphne was soooooo adorable on Saturday when we went to her house for her birthday party. She had a pretty new dress on and was chatting up a storm! It is so fun to listen to her talk. She is just like a little sponge right now. Learning so many new things and saying so many new words. I was very happy to see that she knew all the Sesame Street characters!!!! I made her a a box card with the Sesame Street characters on it. I do believe she like the card (she happened to be playing with my phone and saw the picture of it before she actually opened it and she rhymed off all the names of the characters on the card!!!) and she even ripped off poor Snuffleupagus's head so she could carry him around with her!
She got some very nice presents from family and friends! She got a very cute cozy coupe from Mommy and Daddy too! She'll be tootin' around on the deck in no time! It was a very nice day, the weather was beautiful, actually quite warm, so we were thankful for the breeze, and it was great to spend some time with family and friends and celebrate Daphne's birthday.
 Look at these cute little curls!!!
 She likes to sit on the base of the umbrella! Just her size for sitting!
 The box card and the removal of Snuffleupagus!

 Looking at one of the books she got for a present
 She kept going over to the beer bucket (which was her little table filled with ice!) and scooping up some ice to cool off!
 Admiring her Anna and Elsa balloon
 In her cozy coupe
 Look at this face. She thoroughly enjoyed her Elmo cupcake!
I have a little video of a baby lamb on my phone. The lamb "baa's" on the video. Every time it does, she laughs and says "funny sheep". It's adorable!
Her new birthday hat. 
Love you Daphne!

Happy Mothers's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to the best Mum ever. I am very blessed, thankful and proud to have you as my Mum. Your unconditional love was something I never understood until I had kids of my own. It truly is a gift to be a Mum and I hope you think of it is a gift too!! (although I'm sure over the years you were frantically trying to find the gift receipt so you could return it for a refund!!!haha)
I thoroughly enjoy all the time we spend together and am very happy that because of how geographically close we are now, we an do it more often than before!
I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day. I love you.

The apartment!!!!

Jade got her very own apartment on the 15th! I'm very excited for her. She has accomplished so much in her young life and I could not be prouder of her. Joel had an orthodontist appointment on Monday in London, then a dentist appointment in Ingersoll and then needed to be taken back to school in Windsor, so Mom was the taxi driver on Monday!
We had a SUV full of stuff to take to Jade for her apartment so we headed there first. We got the SUV unpacked and then we headed off to the Goodwill to pick up the couch she bought. Her friends that helped her move some other furniture in the night before said there was no way that the couch would fit, so they didn't pick it up when they had the truck. 
Unfortunately, Goodwill would not give her money back or do any store credit, so we had to pick up the couch. Worst case scenario - it would sit in the hallway of her apartment until she sold it to someone else. But Joel was determined to get that couch in that apartment for his sister! So off to Goodwill we went.
Joel got the couch tied down on the roof of the Escape and off we went.

These are the stairs leading up to Jade's door. This part is straight - so no problem with the couch there.
This is the hallway, however if you look on both sides the entrance way that this picture is shot through is the entrance to the living room and it's on a funky angle.

This is the living room.

This shows a panoramic shot of the living room.

This is the nice bright kitchen.

Another shot of the kitchen

And a panoramic of the kitchen.



This is the doorway into the bedroom

And a panoramic of the bedroom

The bathroom.

And a panoramic of the bathroom

This is the living room with some stuff in it - and YES the couch!!!!! Joel did a great job of getting it in there. He was determined! 

Here is another shot of the living room.

And another shot! See Jade's plant on the coffee table!!!! Her very own plant in her very own apartment!!

Another angle of the living room. Granny's corner shelf fits just perfect. Her beta fish is sitting on the top shelf and her Scentsy is on the next one. Not sure what she will put on the rest, but it has found it's place in her new place.

There's a shot of the kitchen with the table and chairs.

And another angle of the kitchen with her new garbage pail!

And another shot. We had to do some plungering of the sink, but I'm pretty sure that's all fixed up

Here's a shot of her bed room. If you look really close you can see "beans" for bean bag chairs on the floor. We filled up one of the bean bag chairs and some of the beans got away from us.

Here's another angle of the bedroom showing the closet.

This is a dark shot of the bathroom.

And another shot of the bathroom.

And these are all the boxes we unpacked!!!! They need to be taken out to the dumpster! But it's evidence that we did a lot of work!

And this is Jade's pride spot!! It's in the kitchen. On the top shelf she has her birthday/graduation presents from her best friend Jill. Then the next shelf is the pretty shadow box that her client Rita made for her. The next shelf has a picture of Granny and Poppa, her card from the humane society and her 21st birthday card that I made for her. The next shelf is another birthday card. It's nice that she has a special place to show off her things.
I really like her place. It's homey and she has lots of ideas about what she wants to do with it.
We just have to find her some blinds for those windows!!! We don't want people seeing "ALL" of Jade!!!! 
I'm proud of you kiddo.

Remembering Poppa.....

I should have had this posted on Monday, the 20th, but I was out of town with no access to my computer or the internet for that matter.
The 20th would have been Poppa's 97th birthday. It's hard to believe it will be 18 years this November since he passed away. He was such a good guy. He could be a hard ass when he wanted to, but as far as Diana and I were concerned, he was the best. I can't seem to find all the pictures I wanted to find, but here are a few.
Here are Granny and Poppa with Diana. 
Granny and Poppa. I think this is an anniversary picture, but I'm not sure what year.
This is Poppa at the rehearsal dinner for our wedding!



This is Poppa looking pretty dapper in his tuxedo. He didn't want us to spend the money on getting him a tux, but we insisted. He looked GREAT!
This is just before we got in the car to head down to the ceremony!

Here are he and Diana having a dance! 




And here is me, with the 3 most important people in my life. (Until my kids came along and then there were 5!)

I miss him every day and hope that he and Granny are up there looking down on us and are proud of all of us.
