I'm late, I know, but......

HAPPY 4TH BIRTHDAY LORELEI!!!!!!!!! Lorelei had a fun week for her birthday. She had a party at daycare with a cookie cake and some crafts. Then John's parents came and Hope for BraveHEARTS had our 3rd Annual Golf Tournament but more on that later. We then had a party for her at my Mom's house and we had a Barbie cake. Then my Dad came and on her birthday we took her to Frankie's Fun Park. We rode go carts, played mini golf and played tons of games. Grampa Don won her TONS of tickets, which Lorelei was really psyched about! I will leave you with some pics of her party.

A little history

I know that I haven't been on here in a while and it's really because I don't know what to say. Lorelei has been doing great and we have been pretty busy. I have been rereading the blog a little and I have realized you know a lot about Lo but what do you know about us, her family?

John and I have been together FOR EVER! We dated in high school for 2 years and broke up for 6 and 1/2 years then got back together. We both went to several colleges, don't ask, long story. I wanted to be a psychologist, nope I graduated with a B.A. in Liberal Arts with a minor in Social Work. Guess what, I am a pharmacy technician! I love what I do and have met great people doing it. My husband is a Records Analyst after graduating with Criminal Justice and Political Science degrees. I guess some things don't work out the way you want them too.

We grew up in Central NY and have never been to NYC. Can you believe that?? I was a lake brat and lived in the lake all summer long. Boy do I miss those days! We grew up in a small town where everyone knew everyone BUT there was also a Maximum Security Prison smack dab in the middle of the town. We all felt safe even though it was right in town. We moved to SC because of the weather and jobs, well at least we thought there were jobs down here for us. It took us a little while to get established.

Well Lorelei and I are waiting for John, Papa and Grammy to get home from golfing and for my dad to arrive to visit for Lorelei's 4th birthday! Whoo Hoo!
