I must be feeling a bit nostalgic ... but this is the single most adorable song in the world. Mike and I sang this to Matthew countless times while in the hospital (and still do). It's less than a minute and you will fall in love with this little 3 year old. Oh my heck, this one is even cuter!!!

Don't Make Me Come Over There and Love You, by George Strait.
This is a verse of a cute song we sing to Matthew when he is getting grumpy or getting into mischief. Sometimes Mike will sing this verse to me if I'm ever being a troublemaker.
Go check out the song, or at least the first 10 seconds..... it's the first verse that George sings. Who knows ... maybe you'll start singing to your kids or spouse/lover/partner :-)
Besides, it's a totally adorable video!!! It'll put you in a good mood!
Today is a special day... It was 2 years ago today that Matthew had his lifesaving 9 hour heart surgery by Dr. Frank Hanley. His was the most complicated surgery Dr. Hanley performs ... a Unifocalization. Dr. Hanley pioneered and developed this procedure ~ we are blessed to have had him as our pediatric heart surgeon! (both times..)
It's a like second birthday for Matthew .... his second chance at life.
The man with miracle hands, our hero. He is able to do surgery on little hearts the size of a walnut. This guy would stroll down the halls of Stanford in his scrubs and sportscoat. My sister Kim and I would just go "GA GA" over him. We could swear we heard angels voices when he walked by... and he always, always had a halo over his head.

... that when I pulled out a half~filled "gallon size" Ziploc bag of shredded cheese (from Sam's Club)
.... forgot about it on top the refrigerator, in the garage (for an hour or so) ....
IT COMPLETELY MELTED... it looked as if I put it in the microwave......
Yes, Suzie Sidetrack here ... started to do something else and forgot about the cheese...
Mike called me to the garage, held up the ooyee gooey bag of oil & mush ..... and asked me if I had plans for it... DOH!
I wish I would have taken a picture. Drats... it was my last bag of cheese!

My blogland friend , Queen of the Mayhem so kindly asked ME to be a "guest writer"over on her blog today.
At first, I was all excited and thought, "OHHHH......HOW FUN!!!!" But then, within seconds ... seriously.... the insecure part of me said ..."OH NO, I can't be as funny as the Queen ~ what the heck am I going to write about?!" "What if her readers think I'm a big dork?" I don't want to be like Dorky Dad you know! (Jussssst kidding ... he's very fun. ;-)
