October review ~ part 2

Thursday, November 6, 2008 |

* For those that have asked, the below pictures are of my son and I.  Nicholas is 18 years old. Thank you for your sweet comments!
A visit from my son!
Nicholas came home over fall break. It was so good to see him.
I haven't seen him since he left for college. We talk on the phone almost daily so I still feel very connected to him. When he left, I felt like a part of me was missing and went through a time where I just felt like I was in a funk.


This was taken one evening when we were all playing a board game. Nicholas was already away at school when we brought Bozely home. He immediately took to Nick and wouldn't leave him alone. It was just so sweet.
Please over look the facial hair ~ it's a source of pride for him and disgust for me :)
One of the first things he asked me was if I liked his "beard." Hmmm, nope not really
but I'm all about picking my battles and this isn't one. I was just thrilled to have him home!




 I must share that during his return, I noticed a softening, an appreciation and since of gratitude that I hadn't seen before he went away to college. It's a very nice addition to his personality.





No, we do not let Bozely on our furniture.
Both boys were caught red handed on this one.
After the picture, Mr. Boz was escorted off the chair.
Nice try Nicholas, you know the rules.


It was sad to see him leave but it's only a few short weeks until he
returns for the holidays!

Love you tons Nicholas,
Mom

Thanks for visiting me! I love this picture of you and your son. Though I thought it was his co-ed girlfriend. You look great.

He is handsome regardless of his 'beard.' :) And I have to tell you I loved it because I rarely finish the book club book! :)

I"m wondering if your son is a TarHeel? :)

Isn't it wonderful when they come home for a visit. I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving when both of mine will be home at the same time for the first time since August 1.

It is always great to have them return home from there first months away at college. Sometimes I think the boys come back nicer than the girls.

Kris said...

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. What a cute family you have. In terms of the header, I found the paper I wanted and my friend put it together. You can go google "digital scrapbooking" to find sites that have digital paper/kits.
