February 13th my eldest nephew Rowan turned 7 years old. Happy birthday! Anyway here is his cake and a few pics including his mom and dad. It was just a small family celebration. Auntie Lynnette couldn't make it as she had to work and Uncle Shawn forgot it was his nephews birthday.....we won't go there LOL.
I had to include the last picture of Kiley as she was just diving into this ice cream cake like it was going out of style! We were all having a good time that night.
My normal morning routine starts out with my phone alarm waking me up at 0700 meaning its time to get up, wake up Destiny, check her blood sugar levels, give her two insulin shots, feed her breakfast, brew coffee. Then while she eats I get to sit down and enjoy my coffee while I check my email and all by 0730 on the weekends. Anyway this past Saturday morning instead of hearing my alarm go off, it was my phone ringing. My mom calling which that early in the mornings means something is wrong. My Uncle John had passed away in his sleep. It wasn't surprising as his health was failing fast over the last 5 weeks. My Aunt Leala was driving up daily to sit with him all day in the hospital. Some days he was lucid and they could have a conversation but most days his memory was failing him. It was a hard reminder to me that Destiny could be going through that one day in the future. My Uncle John was a diabetic but he would sit at work all day and then come home and sit till bedtime, and this was him over the last 30 years or so. Which made his leg muscles very weak. Now I know he had a lot more health problems going on and its not just the diabetes, but since he was in a hospital and not really wanting to eat, it messed with his blood glucose levels and that takes a toll on his body. Anyway I want bore you with anymore details. I met him one time in my life when Destiny was a baby and we emailed too. He was a sweet man and will be dearly missed. He leaves behind a wonderful wife, two kids Trish and Scott and several grandbabies and other family. We love you Uncle John.

My older sister is getting married!!! Lynnette and her dbf Shawn will be getting married on April 30th. Pop over to her blog to see her engagement ring and to read more about her adorable son.
BOTH my sisters are pregnant! My little sister Heather (the one in the picture above) is just finishing up her first trimester of baby #2. And after a few days of her son crying that he doesn't want a little sister or brother, he is finally excited to be having either one. CONGRATS! I still say I am sorry Jeremy as I know this is your first and you didn't know that Heather would turn into a sleeping, eating, puking machine and her labor isn't much better either! Expect screams of agony when she is only 1 cm dilated. Best of luck!
My older sister Lynnette and her soon to be husband Shawn are pregnant with baby #2. They wanted to wait till Poe was a year old before trying but well God had other intentions for them. ^_^ Poe is only 5 months old and she just found out this past Saturday that she is expecting! Congrats to you both! Good luck with the move to a bigger place too. Hopefully you can move here so I won't have to drive 3 hours one way just to see you all. My offer still stands!
Both my sisters first kids are boys so I only have nephews. So will the baby gods (LOL) please give them both or even one of them a girl?? I want a niece. Am I asking too much? LOL. I'll be happy with whichever they have. I love my nephews even if Rowan treats me like I'm chopped liver and tells me I should leave my daughters there forever so they can always play.
And to end off on a cute note, here's my adorable nephew Poe (i.e PB&J)
