So a lot has been going on in the last couple of months. Lacey started dating, Katey's moving in, Alex has his first girlfriend and Emma gets a 27/7 big sister in the house. Where to start first....Lets start with the oldest. Lacey's dating a really sweet young man by the name of Robert. They've been together for about 2 months now. They go to separate schools and only see each other only when Lacey's at our house. Since they started this new thang Lacey was shy and quiet. She very rarely smiled and only gave half hugs. You know the kind...hugs from the side?! NOW she's smiling and she's really happy. She hugs us like she means it and tells us she loves us. When we brought up the fact that this was going on she just said..."You guys show more affection then any family I know. You say you love each other and mean it. You tuck in your children without having them ask. And I want to be around that. I love you guys." This about made Chris and I both cry. Because of this Lacey has pretty much decided to move in with us this summer. (we aren't supposed to know but I overheard hehehe) Now Katey's turn. Apparently Katey's having a hard time at her mothers. So Chris and Debbie thought it was time for Katey to move in with her father. Chris is absolutely thrilled about this of course, but knows it's going to be hard. Everything is changing. Katey won't be able to get away with half of what she gets away with at her mothers. She knows this too. Debbie and Chris have discussed this in length with Katey about what's going to happen. So now Emma Jane is going to have both her big sister and her big brother at her school. :) Emma told me that she didn't know how to handle having both with her all the time. I just sat her down and told her that she was one of the luckiest people on the planet! Now only does she have both her mother and father in the same house now she'll have 2 out of 3 of her siblings. Now on to Alex (which I'm sure my mother and sister and thankful for haha). Just to let ya'll know this is how I woke up this morning...."Hey mommy" "What's up Alex? How did you sleep?" "Oh I slept fine. Oh by the way I have a girlfriend." I'm in the kitchen and my mouth drops. "Excuse me son? You have a WHAT????" "Yeah! Vidella (or Val) and I are boyfriend and girlfriend." "What do you think that means SON?" "Well, we just hold hands and play games all day. Right?!" "Yes son that is what you do. Play video games and hold hands." I send him on his way and call for Chris. "CHRIS!!!!!!!!" Chris runs into the kitchen and I tell him about Alex's and I's conversation. Chris just smiles and goes to talk to Al. When he comes back I asked how it went?! "Everything is just fine honey. Don't worry. It's nothing serious. They're just friends." Chris then kisses me on my head and tells me to drink my coffee before it goes cold. So not only is my oldest daughter dating, but now my only son is too. So this is the jest of what has been going on in the last couple of months. Everyone is healthy and happy. That's all that matters. Love to all!!
