Hello there!

It's been almost a year since I've been here... Thought I'd drop by and say "hi" and give my up date on Justin.

He is now 5... He turned 5 August 8th.  We had a huge carnival bash in our backyard (and our front yard).  It was loads of fun.  Had about 100 people here that day.  I ran around like a chicken without it's head, but it was all worth it! :smileywink:

Justin started Kindergarten Sept. 5th.  So far, it's been an adjustment from pre-K.  I think he will get the hang of it... eventually.  Tonight happens to be back to school night.  I am looking forward to meeting with his teacher.

Justin is looking forward to his cousin's 7th birthday party at the end of this month.  He loves getting to run around and have fun!

A note on my daughter, Alicia is 20 and attending her 3rd year of college but her first year at a state school.  She went to community college the first 2 years and now has entered William Patterson College... Very thrilled for her.  She is doing great too.

As for me, still baking and decorating cakes.  My business has boomed so much thanks to Facebook and of course word of mouth. :smileywink:   The cake business allows me to work at home and be here for my son when he goes to school and comes home.  Something I did not get to do when Alicia was growing up. :smileywink:

Hubby is doing well too.  His plumbing business is in full tow... Thank God because that's really how the bills get paid! LOL!

Hope everyone else is doing well.  I know a lot of the moms on here have dropped off.  Life is so busy these days.  I wish I could get on here more often. 
Have an awesome day!!!

Here are some pics of Justin now...

DYK I can't believe you are already through your first trimester?

DYK so happy to hear that all is good in the U/S?

DYK I hope that morning sickness goes away soon?

DYK how are the kids doing?

DYK have you told them about the new baby (or at least N)?

DYK I am so nervous about Jax's surgery on Friday?

DYK he had an asthma attack earlier this week due to allergies? :smileysad:

DYK that happening right before his surgery is making me even more nervous?

DYK I'm sure it will all be fine?

DYK the kid can play soccer all day long and not need his inhaler but if he gets a cold or allergy the asthma can come out of no weird?

DYK my aunt passed away yesterday of cancer so I am worried the memorial services might be Friday too?

DYK going to be a crazy week?

DYK yes, gotta get the thread going!

DYK so much of my water cooler time at work is gone with my new job so hopefully things slow down soon and I can get on more?
