The Un-Birthday

Weekend=FUN! Monday=Boo.

I had this wonderful birthday post ready to go for Artie's birthday yesterday.  But then I woke up and Monday happened.

Don't you hate when a wonderful weekend is ruined by a Monday?  Yeah.  Me too.

Poor Artie spent his birthday worrying about my car.  The dealership called and I need another new transmission.  That would round out this car to having 3.  In 2 years.   Not a great track record in my books.  So we had to make the decision to either pay the $4000 for the new (refurbished) transmission or cut our losses and buy another car.  We decided to find another car.  Everything will be finalized tomorrow and I will no longer have to worry about my car anymore.   Praise the Lord.

Artie is getting a birthday re-do on Thursday haha!

I do have to say that this weekend was wonderful!  So I just keep thinking about it and forgetting about Monday ha!

Saturday the band had their last competition of the season and the majorettes did AWESOME!  I was so happy and proud of all their hard work.  There was not a majorette judge this time but they totally would have won!

Sunday was a blast as well.  Artie, Grayson and I went to visit his birth family!  It was so magical to see them together again.  They could not get over how big he was and that he will be 3 months old this week.  I am so glad we got to spend the day with them.  I took some wonderful pictures of them with Grayson that I will put in his book.  We hope to get together more than just once every 3 months.  I pray that other families of adoption are able to have this kind of relationship.   I am glad he was his giggly self haha.  Sometimes he has a bad day and just cries...but not Sunday!   I just cried and cried on the way home thinking of the sacrifice they made for our family.  I could not imagine one day with out his sweet smile and it just breaks my heart.  (for their privacy I have colored their faces)
