Run Forrest, Run!

At about 2:30 p.m. today, our house became an orphanage.

My Grandma Kaiser has a time-share in Florida at Sea Club V, and every year, my sisters and their husbands go down there to stay for a week. This year, my mom and Aunt flew my Grandma down, and now my sisters (Tonya & Brad, Tasha & Tom) flew down tonight to stay w/her (and enjoy the warm sun and time on the beach!)

Needless to say, the kidlets got dropped off here. Actually, we only have three: Domniq & Sophia, and then Naomi. I got to watch them all afternoon, and I truly do love them SO much. I just want to note how blessed I am. As the baby of the family, I have enjoyed the best of both worlds throughout the years: the world of being the spoiled baby sister in a time of sibling rivalry when we all lived at home, and now a time of being an "only child" with some great brother-in-laws, a sister-in-law, and adorable nieces and nephews. *sigh* Could life get any better?

Guess what else I did this afternoon? I watched half of "Forrest Gump." Normally, this wouldn't be that exciting, but it is, because I've never seen it. *GASP* I know. It's sad. Anyway, I enjoyed what I DID see. Totally wasn't what I expected, but I liked it. I now know why the two famous quotes are "Life is like a box of chocolates" and "Run, Forrest, RUN!"

Here are some pictures of my prides and joys:

Oh I do love your neices and nephews... I have a feeling I'll be over there this week at least once. Your poor mom. I love her too.

Great Movie!! I think that it is a classic! Plus I love the soundtrack (we were listening to it last night on the way back from Leo-ironic)! Plus, I am not ashamed to say, that my nickname in middle school was indeed Forest Gump! :)

You got some pretty stinkin' cute nieces and nephew's...I must say. However, I have to argue and say that my first nephew is by far the cutest!! I will meet him for the first time this weekend. I can't wait to hold the little guy...He is so Cute!!

God Bless

Cute pics. It was so great to visit Morton yesterday. I can't believe you've never seen Forrest Gump, I remember seeing it in the theater when it first came out.. Anyway, have a great day and we need to go out for supper again.
