~Being the Mother of a boy, last from son up...to son down~

Sometimes I think I should have had a daughter....

Since we are dealing with snow and ice here in NC now, I thought I would dig out some pictures from this summer to warm me up....and I found these.

Sometimes I think to myself how wonderful it would be if I had a daughter to dress up in cute little matching outfits(Kyle's idea of matching consist of "mud looks great splattered on anything!"

I swear Kyle tries his hardest to see what kind of situations he can get his 4 wheeler into...and out off, with out hekp from us or his dad's 4 wheel driver truck...and let me just add that I have dug his 4 wheeler out of the mud by hand, more times than I can count!
I know some of you mom's are gasping now and think that I need to been turned over to social services or letting my teenager ride this death machine...but he loves it and he really is a pretty safe driver.

Kyle is fearless when it comes to riding. There is no mud or water too deep for him to try and go through...the more mud.....the better....after all, mud is his favorite color!

And on this next one Kyle's Meme screamed and drew blood from my step dad's arm....Not cool Meme!

and just think, a year from now when he gets a truck all his own....what that poor thing is going to put through!!!!!

oh how much I love you girls...really I do! I know I will never get the chance to meet most of you in person but you ladies touch my life and my heart everyday. It has really made me tear up reading your comments here and the ones some of you left to me on Facebook...you gals are just too sweet to me.

....NOW...enuff sappy stuff...onto a new year...right!

So what the heck have I been up to the past few weeks????

Well, for one...... Christmas...but who hasn't been busy with that! We had a wonderful time celebrating with family and even though Kyle is 14 and some of the "Magic" is gone, seeing Kyle's eyes still sparkle on Christmas morning melts my heart.

The day after Christmas we woke up to a butt load of snow!!! No kidding...we got 6.5 inches!!! Which for my little crack in the world is ALOT! Not to mention it put a huge damper on my day after Christmas shopping!!!

Kyle is back to school and next week will finish up his 1st semester of High School...MAJOR croc tear here!!! I can't believe his Freshman year is half way over....and the fact that if he doesn't pass Spanish I may be childless!!!

So, I know some of you have missed my Kyle stories so I thought I would close this post with a few of his Facebook post...I really wish you guys knew him cause if you knew his personality they would we much more comical.....

Kyle: Chores done...mud here I come!

Kyle: since when did my hand get too big to fit in the Pringles can????
(this cracked me up at work and I almost spit my tea all over my desk!)

Kyle: here ducky ducky ducky......
(he had got up early to go duck hunting behind the house)

...about a hour later he posted this....

Kyle: stupid ducks, i'm going back to bed..
(guess he didn't see any!)

Thanks for stinking with me....many hugs to you all!!!!!!

Welcome 2011 and welcome back too me!

Hey there bloggie chicks....missed you guys a ton over the holidays!!! I hope each one of you had a very special one with family and friends....I know I did.
I am sorry to say that I still can't find my USB cord thus leaving Nicholas Sparks and all my holiday pictures hostage inside my camera.
I hope I have not lost too many of you as followers during my much needed break. Things have been crazy at work trying to finish up year end and then with me being in charge of directing the children's play at church...and then trying to keep up with Kyle....which by the way we have 3 weeks left to pass Spanish....ugh... I have been pulled in so many directions!
I have also been working hard redoing Kyles room and putting his twin bed up in the attic and getting him a larger one to fit his ever growing teenage boy body. If you remember the scene from Elf where Buddy is trying to sleep in the tiny Elf beds with his legs from the knee down dangling off, well....that's Kyle trying to sleep in a twin bed!!!!
And of course I am still trying to get the rest of my house back to normal, whatever normal is.
Thanks again for being patient with me...I promise I will do better in 2011. Hugs to all of you....
