Hello to All! Yes, I have been quietly crying my tears about the Jayhawks, but I guess that is the nature of the beast, right? Addi and I enjoyed a week back in Kansas with the family. We had a great time, planned to much and wish we could of just sat around some more and rested, but I think that is why we come home right. Her and Cousin Ryan are truly two peas in a pod. They fell in love and out of love with each other over and over again, but at night never went to bed angry...the drama those girls will have. Also sorry to those I didn't meet up with, time just flew by...
Now we are back in NC celebrating another new Cousin, Morgan Mullan. She arrived last night and we already raced to the hospital to meet her and Addi was just in awe. Oh the things Addi wants to teach her. Congrats Caroline and Mike. I cannot help but think what mixed emotions Bo would have...he would (and always was) so proud of your both, but would have a hard time believing his little sister has a baby now.
For those of you also wondering, yes Tonya went to Kansas with us, she was invisible most of the time. When my family wasn't asking teasing her to come out. She did come right back as soon as we walked into the school doors. Tonya is from China, she didn't see the great wall, her mama never took her and she is very sad about this. Addi/Tonya is now obsessed with shrinking...she thinks she is getting smaller and Mommy is a giant. You really have to love and appreciate this age...
Love to All

oh yeah, new favorite word, booty followed up by bootilicous - I tried to tell her Beyonce beat her too that word...

Hello to All - Thank you for all the kinds emails and posts that Addi might just be creative and not odd...with that being said. If you could only have been a fly on the wall at McDonalds the other morning. She was trying to explain to a friend she just met why she was Tonya and that we left Addi at home in bed resting. He was very concerned that she was sick and her mommy was at McDonalds leaving her home alone. I am only waiting on the call from children's services...
I am finalizing the numbers for Addi's Cure, "Beating the Odds," I hope to get that total by the end of the day. Also if anyone is in the Hendersonville area May 1st - 2nd at Crooked Creek a golf tournament for Addi's Cure. Calcutta and steak dinner Saturday night at the Hendersonville Elks Lodge. Please contact Lee Bradley - 828-290-3354.
Also a reminder those of you that shop online, please link up to IGive.com and choose Addi's Cure or any non-profit, so many stores give a percentage back. It is an easy way to raise money.

Alright, when do you worry? Just kidding...Addi has entered her imaginative stage (I think we have been there for a while, but she is getting more creative) She is now officially Tonya....I know, who is Tonya, why Tonya, and are you serious. Please do not refer to her as Addi because either a.) she will just flat out ignore you (Jessica our sitter had this happen to her) or b) she will correct you with the proper eye roll. (My name is Tonyaaaaaa)
The story goes as such, Addi is sick for 3 days, sleeping in her bed. All by herself and we are so proud of her. Tonya is now playing with Mommy. Tonya's family didn't want her anymore, so now she is with us. They were friends before, got split up, and now are friends again. Sisters actually...and the story keeps going on and on...Only I have the child that becomes the imaginary friend instead of just having one...
Love to All
Christi and Tonya

Hello to All - I can hardly believe yesterday had been 3 months without Bo. Oh how are hearts miss him. Even the stuff that drove us crazy. Lately there seems to be more reminders of him everywhere. Our Addi's Cure event, I went to get my life insurance license, and Addi has been missing him a little more lately. She is sweet, I just hope that I do not screw her up too much. Thanks girls for helping me get through my Friday night and 3 months without Bo.
With that being said, Addi and I (with Pam) had an adventure today watching our friend Kay ride her horse in an North Carolina Rodeo. I believe the proper term is "Roping". She was amazing and all her friends were so sweet to Addi. Addi definately has some of her Papa Cow in her, she loves animals. All she wanted to do was get in the saddle and go faster. She was sad that she wasn't competing...god help me I might need someone to buy her a horse! She loved everything about it, from getting dirty in the dirt, to riding, eating nachos and chasing cowboys to tickle them (that will stop at age 6, don't you worry) Thank you again Kay for inviting us, we had a great time.
Off to bed
Love to All

Hello to All! Sorry for the delay in posting...We had another fabulous Addi's Cure event, Beating the Odds with a wonderful turn out. I am always how fun to can be to play Vegas style without really losing the money. We at least I think it is fun. One of these days I will tune my skills to venture to Vegas on my own and truly gamble. With that being said, I am still working on the totals, but hope to post soon. Thank you again for everyone that turned out and for loving Addi. She had a wonderful time running around and even trying to play some games, we at least roulette and craps. I think I am still recovering from the good time, or it could be that I am just lacking because I am sitting to get another license for work. Thank God Kay is putting up with me and all the talking I do a break and in the car. I do realize for some reason I am talking an ungodly amount. Sorry!
I did have to say Addi and I received the greatest present in the mail! Thank you to my wonderful friends in Kansas. I haven't been able to go home for a while, but they still remember me. We got some things and now I have to run to the grocery store so Addi and I can cook in "her" Cookbook. Thank you for being so thoughtful. Hopefully when Addi and I go to Kansas we can meet up with some of you, if not all. I am not quite sure some of the smaller ones are ready to Addi. She is a force of energy.
Well that is all for now. Wish me (and Kay) good luck on our test! We (I) might need it!
Love to All
Christi and Addi
