Good entry on Shutterfly.  I couldn’t make a comment on her sight, sometimes blogspot does that so I’m linking to it.

Friday Favorites


What has been your favorite “mom” moment this week?

I was talking to my son about how he slept (he slept on our floor because of bad thunderstorms in our area) and he said he “did even though you snore”.  I hate it that I do and that he knows I do and  now the whole world does; anyway then he said, “that’s okay mommy it makes you unique.”  I love him he is so sweet.


A great quote that I want to use on a page with Rob and Matt September 3, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — alwayswithme @ 10:11 pm

“It’s the little moments that make life big”

“Every year it is incredible just how much you’re able to miss, while standing right there everyday watching it all happen.  You grew up so fast and literally right before my eyes.  You have changed so much with each passing year.  You’re amazing and I love you.”

We had a great Christmas this year.  We opened gifts to each other early in the afternoon of the 24th.  Christmas was on Sunday so after we did the Chirpich family Christmas we went to Christmas Mass at Nativity.  The church looked beautiful.  The backdrops around the altar were lush copper fabric.  It looked great with the white lit Christmas trees.  Steve came over after that mass for his gifts.  Greg had a nice visit with him.  Dan and Greg shared a scotch while Rob and I went to bed so Santa woul come.  On Christmas morning, Rob Greg and I saw that Santa had come.  Rob got a Game Boy Advance with a Pokemon game, Lego Star Wars Imperial Starship an a Star Wars light saber.


Quilt Walk

I want to do a page on the quilt walk in ___________, Kansas.  I may do the blocks set out on the page like they were on the town square with the names under them.  My favorites were Farmers Daughter and Windmill.    I like the memory of Greg and Rob counting the pieces of tile that made up each quilt block.

I asked Rob as we were leaving _________ about what he thought of the quilt blocks and murals we saw.  His reply, “loved it!, loved it!, loved it!”


Zapata Falls

Filed under: Uncategorized — alwayswithme @ 9:54 pm

A 30 foot high waterfall cascades within a narrow cavern.  To get to it we drove up a winding, steep, dirt road filled with ruts.   We then walked alongside and in a flowing stream – the water was ice cold.  We stepped on rocks with Rob leading the way, again.  He was fearless and fast and it was great.  Well worth the trek.
