Retirement, Festivals, Babies and Birthdays!

Mom and Big Mac...born at 8:40 a.m.

He is HUGE compared to Tristyn!

Our serious birthday girl...Leslee.

Wow did we have a busy weekend.
On Saturday Tristyn and I went to my Uncle's retirement party.
All of my cousins got to meet the little nugget.
They played pass the baby and she got tons of kisses!

On Sunday we took a family trip to Munster.
We went to the St. Thomas More Fun Days festival.
We met my mom and ate some dinner
And then Ashlee, Leslee and Melissa went on some rides.
Tristyn loved all the music and lights.
As we were about to leave
We realized that Tammy left the lights on in my car and the battery was dead.
Luckily my mom had jumper cables and only lives 5 minutes away.
We jumped the car, got some chicken at Long John Silvers and came home.

Yesterday Tristyn and I drove Veronica to the doctor.
After that we drove out to Munster AGAIN for a wake.
My boyfriend from high school's wife passed away.
Very bizarre and she was only 31.

This morning we were woken up by Veronica at 5:30 a.m.
She was in labor!
Tammy flew out of bed and took her to the hospital.
At 8:40 a.m. she gave birth to a 9 lb. 3 oz. boy.
He is 20 inches long.
He's going to look like a giant compared to Tristyn!

And last, but not least...
In the midst of all this craziness...
HAPPY 12th BIRTHDAY to my daughter Leslee!!
I cannot believe she is 12 already.
I remember when I was 12!

It's kind of funny how today was my due date.
Veronica and my other pregnant friend Jill are both having babies today.
Congratulations ladies!

No baby yet from me. :) I went to the doctor yesterday also and she thinks the baby won't be born until the 4th of July. Crazy about Monica. Brain Aneurysm.
