Happy Birthday to our Main Man*

A July Birthday in the House!!!!
July is ending and I was feeling a little remiss not posting a 20th Birthday tribute to my first born Cody.
He isn't the bloggin type so I'll get the Oh Mom....
I'm going to show him some "Love" even if he gives me a little grief!!!
After all it's a privilege we get when we're a parent don't you agree?

He was a healthy almost 10pound beautiful baby. He was 13 lbs. at a month.
His first welcome home gift from the hospital was from my neighbor, A Nike soft rubber football....
I took lots of photographs, however they are all on film.. I have to scan my life of pictures!!
Cody had began to focus on round objects and would pick them up and throw them, produce at the grocery,dinner rolls at the restaurants, well we thought how interesting and cute. That was the beginning!!! Friends and strangers began to comment on his athletic baby and toddler coordination. Since he was our first child we did't have anything to compare him to.

So his love was playing ball, baseball, basketball & football.
Well to bring this to the present day. It wasn't just a phase, or something we pushed him into.
He has played all of them. Until last year he was a baseball pitcher too. He loves Baseball and wanted to continue to play and felt tugged between the two. His college coaches wanted him to focus on just one sport. So he chose football to be his focus. A chizzled 6'4 frame with wheels. His arm is a cannon, so I've been told! Jock Lingo!!!! You know...

Cody is very dedicated to his dream and is a amazing athlete. He is a Q.B. and I must say when all of those huge guys are coming at him on the field I feel the "mom tingle".
He teases me because I don't know anything about the game. I told him long ago that I am not a stage mom that cares about all those details!

More than all of this he is a fine young man with a huge heart and I know he will make good choices and be a role model for younger athletes. I admire his dedication and his strength.

This is what HE loves and I will Always be his biggest Fan!!!

I wish you the Best of Health, Love & Happiness My Dear.
I'm honored to be your Mom,

My Country House Newest Landscape*

My Country house landscaping is a work in progress! This is the most resent area finished...
You can see the before and after.
The roses are difficult to grow here, I've been told it's probably the Eucalyptus, however I'm optimistic!! I planted white Glamis Castle and a climbing rose. They will be beautiful with the evergreens. I'll take a picture of the roses and post them later.
I love the way this area turned out, it's just as I imagined it.
If my dogs stay out of it the boxwood might make it....

I haven't been around much lately, I'm busy working on some things and my son just finished All Star Baseball. He had practice everyday and weekend Games... It was fun to see all the boys have such a great time together.

Oh Yes.....Still keeping my fingers crossed about my Audition for Oprah's OWN.
Thank you for the most lovely emails and your support,votes and I appreciate each and every one of them.
