Heart Broken

I had the BIGGEST heart break of my life tonight!!!
I pulled up to my Gym to work out & saw my nephew's school bus in the parking lot. (My nephew is 8 & goes to a private school in Caddo & the drop off & pick up are at my gym's parking lot). So I walked over to see if he might be on the bus waiting to be picked up & he was. The bus driver opened the door & I said "Hi I'm Cody's aunt, I'm not picking him up I just wanted to say Hi." Cody comes up from the back of the bus with this frustrated look on his face & the first words out of his little mouth was "don't say anything". To witch I responded "Cody, I just wanted to say Hello" & he said "Sissy I said don't say anything, step away from the bus". As you could imagine I was in shock, I asked him "Cody what's wrong, I just wanted to say hi" & again I get "sissy don't say anything please get away from the bus". With a huge lump in my throat & fighting back tears I told him bye & walked away.
I rushed through my work out because I couldn't think about anything other than what had just happened. I get home & immediately call my brother's house looking for an answer. The phone is ringing off the hook with no answer. The lump in my throat is growing bigger by the minute. Finally Jacob calls me back, I tell him the story & he gives the phone to Cody & this is what I get...
Cody: "Hi Sissy, what are you doing"
Me: "Cooking dinner, what are you doing"
Cody: "Eating McDonald's & fixing to play rock band with Maddie"
Me: "Cody when I saw you tonight at your school bus, what happened"
Cody: "Sissy I just don't want the big kids to make fun of me,
But I will love you forever it's OK"

I will love you forever, that's all I needed to hear!!! I don't know what broke my heart more..... getting blown off by my nephew or knowing that my little nephew is becoming a big kid.

The heart breaker

The wine room....

My mother-in-law (Yolanda) loves of a good glass of wine, so one day she decided to try and make her own batch. As you can see it was a success, her wine is very delicious. She & my father-in-law recently moved to Houston & she found a perfect room in the new house for her wine room!! "Yo's Cat House Wine" came from her love for her cat & fine wine. She let me watch her make a batch and it is very interesting, one batch will make 25 bottles of wine. As a wine lover my self I am very lucky to have Yolanda in more ways than just her FABULOUS WINE!!!! Love you Yo!!!!!!

We wish we could see him all the time, but Ohio is a loooooooooong way away. We hope they decide to move to Texas one day!!!! We love you Jake ~ Sissy & BooBoo
