A keeps talking about her birthday and that she wants a party. I'm going to try to talk her into just family at an amusement park. We shall see. D will celebrate his birthday in San Diego a few days early.

I think the Doubletree has suites too! Might be a lot more expensive though. I saw pics online with kids bunk beds. I can't not do the suite thing with the kids this age. It's so nice to be able to put them to bed then hang out in the living room for a while longer!

Well...it's done. G's dad passed this afternoon. I talked to G for about 30 seconds and he was too upset to talk. I feel bad that I can't be there.

I am sorry Michelle. Are you planning on going out there soon?

Not sure if I will go out there. The kids will just get in the way. They are going to the mortuary today to pick stuff out, then I think he will come home tomorrow. I'm trying to talk one of my friends into coming over so we can hit the mall. (I say one of my friends, but really she is my only friend! LOL) My only close friend, anyways. She lives an hour away though.

I know when my grandma and mom passed it was a pain to find child care for the kids for the services but they were a nice distraction the rest of the time.

Thanks ladies. I told Addison - she took it pretty hard. I don't know how to address with Gabe because he won't get it. Then we'll just have to listen to him ask "where's grandpa" 50 times when we go out there next regardless. Karen, how is work going....are you holding it together?
