have you ever gone to a movie and felt it necessary to see two so you get the most bang for your buck? It's like that! I felt inspired to go with one more retro post.


For some reason this is like one of the only pictures of Mike and I while we were dating. This was before we were engaged. It was at year end event I had for my work and he was my date. I don't feel like I look as different now as Mike does! Look at that baby face. Now that's the man I feel in love with!!!


I meant to post this on google video and share it with all for Valentine's Day. My computer was so slow downloading that I gave up. I finally got it on there but well after Valentine's. So for today's RETRO WEDNESDAY here is a treat for you!

the song Joey is singing is
"I'm gonna wrap myself in papper,
I'm gonna dab myself with glue
Stick some stamps on top of my head
I'm gonna mail myself to you!"

Retro Wednesday

Because I have so much in the past that did not get a chance to be "blogged" about I have decided that every Wed. will be RETRO Wednesday! Today's post is a bit new it was Aug 7, Mike's brother Todd and his wife Rachelle were in town to visit so the whole Bealer family got together for some summer fun at our pool! There were a lot more pictures than I have space or time to post, but Mike's family is a little big!! He He He He little big that's funny! Well hey I am laughing, and now technically talking/typing to myself, ummm ok enjoy.

One more for tonight

Yesterday Wesley Mikawa (my new nephew) was blessed. Now I am sorry to say that my camera did not make it out to take pictures, but I did get pictures of Ellie before we left the house. With the help of Aunt Jenna Ellie's Nails matched her dress. It was fun to be that matchy/matchy for the day.

Aug 25th, the day after Joey's endoscopy Gavin missed his first day of school. Gavin is allergic to mosquito bites, if he gets one the whole area around it swells and gets hard. Like he got one on his check and his eye swelled shut and started turning purple! Poor guy. He had to stay home and take a lot of Benadryl to get that swelling down. Ended up that there were three in that side of his face but only the one made his eye swell.

Joey had an endoscopy . . . on Aug 24th actually. He was having symptoms of reflux or GERD disease and so his allergist suggested we take enroll him in a study that is for reflux. He was a trooper, he needed general anesthesia, but he kind of thought that was cool. Missing a day of school is cool too!! He had to watch what he ate for the next hrs so Mike and I took him to Baskin Robbins for a special treat when it was all said and done. So currently he is enrolled in the study and because he has a stomach infection he is only some major antibiotics. The meds do seem to help, he will get another endoscopy to see the progress so . . . I will let all know how that goes!

Ellie's Official First Day of School

Never have a Dad do a Mother's job. Lesson learned . . . sorry Mike. I asked Mike to take a few pics of Ellie on her first day of school, I shot this one before I left for work. Mike did take one pic but it was on his cell phone and so I will get some this weekend and post some "fakes" so you can all enjoy how cute and excited she is for school. She did great on her first day, she was class leader and Mike said she put her backpack on around 7:30am and did not take it off until she was hanging it on her hook in school at 9:30am! I am so glad that she loves school and feels like such a big girl cause she gets to go! My baby is growing up!!

We visited Wes-A-ley (Ellie's loving way of saying Weley)

We were able to go to Mike sister Karin and her husband Denni's house to visit Wesley and the girls (on 9-05-09). I had a lot of fun helping Karin decorate his new room, I do not have pictures of that but Karin will! The kids were glad to see each other and of course Ellie had a lot of fun holding Wesley. Mike fell asleep with him in his arms, he really wanted to hold him, maybe we will have another ;) we will see!
