Still Here

Sorry that I fell off of the wagon. I really tried to post Friday and Saturday from my phone, but apparently I did something wrong. I had thought I posted as I didn't get anything back saying it didn't go through. That is until Sunday afternoon just before I left my Mum's. So since I missed two days, I decided to go ahead and take a break. So now I am back.
We went to my Mum's time share for the weekend. It is always nice to get away and head up there. Every year we go up the first weekend in December and celebrate Little S's birthday. His birthday is so close to Christmas, that we try to celebrate early so he doesn't get lost in the mix.

This year was a lot different than most years though. There wasn't any snow and there weren't any deer and one other thing in just a moment.

It did start snowing Friday night and most of Saturday, but it was such a light snow that there was only a dusting after snowing all day.

As for the deer, my Mum later informed me that they had a big hunt recently and took 250 deer out of there. You read that right, 250! They really were over run and they were beginning to not fear people.

We had some sad news this weekend as well. My Mum's kitty had been sick all week and when the neighbor went to care for them Friday evening, he had gotten worse. My dad left in the middle of the night and went home to check on him. He took him to the vet and they decided to have him put to sleep. I felt so bad that my Mum had to deal with this while on vacation and not able to be home. But she was a trooper and did her best to take care of us and not be sad while the kids were there. While I know her heart was breaking. I don't know how she stayed so strong until we left.
OK, enough sad stuff.
Saturday we had Little S's party. Right before the party we had gone to Ponderosa for dinner. We were so full from dinner that we sang Happy Birthday and then put the cake away until the next day. None of us could eat one more bite.
After singing and not eating we let him open his gifts. He just gets his gifts from my parents and grandma at this party. Great MumMum got him a Webkinz. He named it Dorothy. Guess all that Wizard of Oz had sunk in hard...lol
Then he opened his gift from my parents. He got a Tonka Crane. He loves Tonka trucks. This makes 4. He lines them up in the summer and has a car wash with them. He is so funny.

Look at that smile on his face. The best part about these gifts is that he will sit and play for a long time by him self and I can get something done with out hearing mum, mum, mum, mum a million times....hehe

Hope you all had a nice weekend too.

Early Happy Birthday to S!

I am sorry about the cat.

I am glad that you got a chance to get away before Christmas!

Sounds like you had a great weekend (outside of your mum's cat - sad to see those special friends go) and S made out like a bandit. He's got one of the greatest grins. :)
