I am so excited that Amanda, Jason, and Aiden are moving home to Texas from West Virginia! We’ve had to go way too long without them! I cannot express the joy in my heart knowing they’ll be close by! Ready for some Gigi time!
Amanda was right…we should’ve left for the airport earlier. Even though we left at 4am, they still missed their 6am flight due to long TSA lines. They were able to get on a flight 1 hour later, with a layover in Chicago. They made it home safely. So sad to see my kiddos leave…and my little tater tot. Can’t wait for April to see them again!

Aiden went to a pumpkin patch with mommy and daddy. Love this little family
We got a call at about 1am that Amanda was in labor and having pain. It took no time for me to jump out of bed, wake Tony up, and for us to get to the hospital. Amanda labored for 12 hours and was the sweetest, most polite woman in labor I’d ever seen. After 12 hours the doctors became worried about her and Aiden and rushed her down for an emergency C-section. In a matter of minutes, Aiden was born and both of them were doing well.

We started the morning with breakfast at The Poky Dot restaurant. It was a fun little place with lots of bright colors and ridiculously huge portion sizes. Then it was time to take Amanda to the hospital. They kept her overnight with some medicine to start her dilation and kick start her labor. Tony and I left around 1opm to let her rest.
Today we woke up and ate breakfast at Hardees. We’ve missed that southern fast food chain. Tony was sweet and drove two exits down the highway to get me some Starbucks (thank goodness), and then we headed over to see Amanda and the gang. We watched movies, walked around a little, and just spent a quiet day enjoying being together. Continue Reading →
We got up early and met the kids at Cracker Barrel for breakfast. Then we just chilled at Amanda’s house before catching the movie Ant Man. It was really good! After a run to the local Walmart, I made some 7 layer dip, cowboy caviar, and later made dinner. It was a great, quiet day with family.
Tony and I got the word from Amanda that she would be induced soon, so we jumped on an airplane and headed to West Virginia. We flew into Pittsburgh, and rented a car for the drive south. It was beautiful country, beautiful weather, and we were excited about seeing Amanda, Jason, and TJ (who had driven to WV with his Uncle Paul). Continue Reading →
