Our # 4 son called!!!!!!!

Awwwwwww, California son is sooo special to us. I'll spare everyone all the details as to how he came to be our # 4 son, but he's the most loving son anyone could ask for. I think I'll refer to him as Squidly! He's navy!
Anyway, he's been our #4 son for about 30 years now. He's got a totally gorgeous wife and 2 boys who I seriously adore.
We are both sooo bad in the writing department but email has helped a bunch. Their puter crashed and he lost our info for a while so he just called last night. Completely blew us out of the water with the news of what's going on in his life. He gets to go to the FBI National Academy!!!!
That is THE school to go to if one is in Law Enforcement. Lovee went there before he retired and calls it one of the most memorable accomplishments of his career. Way biggly cool!! I can't express how far he's come and how proud we are of him. He's.......he's.............well......we jsut love him to pieces. Kinda like ETK! Can't imagine our life w/o them in it!!!!!

Which just gave me another 'aha' moment. Lovee and I are so lucky. It reminds me of what we used to tell the urchins when they were younger. We aren't rich w/ money but we're rich w/ love and family. And in the grand scheme of things that's what counts. We count 7 kids in our family.......#1,2,3,4 sons and # 1,2 and 3 daughters!! It's even more cool that I only had to birth 2 of them..ha ha :) # 3 daughter is in me some Kel!!!

When Lovee and I are old and sitting in our nests just passing time and wipeing the drool off our chins, those 7 precious babies will keep our minds busy, thinking of everything that made us a family.
Oh-Oh-OH.......I almost forgot # 5 son!! How could I forget the Swede?!!! The exchange sutdent that wasn't ours but felt like it . He calls us every now and then to catch us up on what's going on w/ his family. Beautiful wife and 2 adorable wee ones.
Love me some urchins!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just had a thought....a good one but one that will never happen sadly. Wouldn't it be the most beautiful thing if somehow ALL of us could get together and have a picture taken!!! It would be hard to get my Swede here!! But who could happen. What a warm thought it is.

Plus, I have a feeling that there is a tweb out there who's heartworming her way into my puffy one! Actually, I think she already has. She's my younger more daring me some monkey!

Enough rambling for one morning. Gotta get back to reality.
Go get mulch......
Go mop the floors and clean the baths for the folks..........
go cook and do another mani on the Dad..........
Ah, reality......................keeps it real doesn't it!
