Is that a golf course I see open?

Spring is finally here!!! Well it has been here for a while but now its starting to feel more like spring. Tomorrow the Winthrop Golf Course opens. I cannot wait to get out there. I really haven't done much golfing in the last two years due to the birth of my children:) Hopefully Layton and Lane will enjoy golf as much as I do! Enough about golf on to my children.

Layton is growing up so fast that sometimes I can't believe he is going to be 2 already!!! He can spell his name, sing most of his ABC's and is a very polite young child. I feel very lucky. He is also a little bossy but sometimes I can be bossy to so I understand where gets it from. I have also noticed lately that he is role playing a lot. The other night he had a baby doll and was pretending to be its Mommy. He rocked it and put it night night. Then gave it a ride on the fire truck (fire fuck as he was say). He also sang her a few songs. It was so cute to watch.

Lane is on the move!! He stands up by everything and walks along the couch or whatever he can get his hands on!! He actually listened to me last night when we were going to bed and I told him to "lay down now" and he looked at me with a big smile and laid his head down, about 2 seconds later he was sitting up again smiling and laughing at me. So I would say it again "lay down" and I would point to the bed, and he would lay down again. Its fun to see the changes they go through. Pretty soon I'm no longer going to have babies.

Well I'm going to go enjoy the nice weather by hitting some golf balls around!!! Happy Easter Everyone!

Let it roll off your shoulders!

Its small town, things get said that really have no true meaning or value, so I got some advice today, just let it roll off your shoulders. I want to write so much on here but I should really keep most of it to myself so I think I just might do that. But I want to say this much, when its final then people can talk but until then, keep it to yourself. I'm smiling again, and happy as of now, and believe me I think I could use a little bit of that!:)

So much to talk about

I don't even know where to begin or really where I last left off. Its been a while since i last blogged. A lot has happened in the Uecker Household.

Friday March 27th: This was the day before the Anniversary of Chad's death. I wanted to do something special but couldn't come up with anything creative so I picked up some flower and I wrote a note and headed out to the accident site with the boys. We each had a rose (2 red and 1 white) and we just enjoyed a few minutes. Some people might think it is weird but to me its something I need to do. Chad knows I'm okay and I know he is okay and that brings me comfort! My sister Katie was along so I didn't break down or anything which might have happened if she wasn't there but I was strong and I did okay!! I miss you Chad M. Wingen!!!

March 28th 2009: I'm a little out of order on my dates. I played in the March of Dimes Volleyball Tournament on Saturday in Gibbon and I am proud to say our team took 2nd place out of 16 teams! We kinda lost the last game out of lack of...lets just say it was the serving. It was so much fun and I am looking forward to more volleyball!! I can't get enough!! The evening was a blast as well..lets just say I had a little too much fun!!! I can't retire my volleyball shoes and I can't retire my dancin shoes!!

Tuesday March 31 2009. My mom, Heather, Allison, the 2 older boys and myself headed to MOA. It was a LONG day! We went to Underwater World, Build a Bear, to the park and just walked around. The boys ran and ran and ran. They were both so tired when we got home!!!

I don't know why I feel the need to say this but I just want to thank the positive people in my life. Seriously without you I would not be who I am today. Lately I have been seeing a lot of negative and I'm just happy I have those people in my life that can call me just at the right time and makes things better or seem better at the moment. I like to smile and I can stay lately I have been smiling a lot!!:)
