Today we say Goodbye to a beloved Ferret named Bear

Our family is in great mourning for a beloved member of our little Fruscella clan : Bear Fruscella

We adopted bear fresh out of the "ferret mill" in October of 2004.
 He was a birthday gift for me from Jason. We went out with Bandit to check out local pet shops, which was a complete fail. Either the ferrets were to aggresive or Bandit just didn't like them, and we knew that when we saw the "one" that we would fall in love and "just know". Well on our way home, feeling completely disapointed. Something made us stop at just one more place, it was about 10 minuets before they were closing and when we walked in we immediatly saw this tiny scrony black as can be little ferret ( there were about 4 of them but Bear just stole our hearts). We asked if we could check him out, and ohmy gosh was it ever love at first sight. He was so tiny, and sweet. I remember looking at Jason and telling him he was the one. So Jason went outside to grab Bandit to see how she felt about him : SHE LOVED HIM.
It took a matter of 10 minuets after that and Bear was all ours.

We named him Bear because his paws were HUGE like Bear paws, much to big for his tiny body.

 Soon after he settled into his name and into our hearts, he became a little terror. He bit, attacked, lunged, and was just all around unpleasant. We couldn't believe how this sweet innocent little thing went from one extream to another in the matter of days.
  But, with discipline and a ton of love he grew into his paws and back into the sweet boy we met at the pet store.
  Bear filled our hearts and lives with so much joy. He was very welcoming to everyone and every animal we brought home. He stole the hearts of everyone that met him, and will be greatly missed. Bear passed away in his favorite sleeping basket with Jason and I in our room. He was laid to rest that morning but will remain in our hearts forever.

Lilys Version of Merry Christmas

 Lily enjoying her afternoon Lunch. Mac n Cheese with mixed Veggies one of her favorites
 Lily colored ornaments for everyone for christmas. This one was my favorite and her first one so i kept it :)
 Some of the ornaments that Lily colored
 Adorable as usual
 Lily receieved a doll house from her Grammie and Grandpa, I assembled it while she was taking her nap. When she woke up she was so excited to see it, she said "whoah mama cool, cool, cool. down" and i set her down and she ran over to it,  kneeled it front of it, closely examined it, and then stood up and said cool. I love you excited she gets over everything.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. Thank you to Everyone for making my Christmas so special. I love and appreciate all of my gifts, and am very grateful to have been able to spend the Holidays with all of my friends and family.

Christmas and Christmas Eve in a Nutshell

Well Lilys second christmas was a complete success. It really is a shame that it came and went so quickly this year. It seems like just yesterday we put our tree up and now it is already about time to take it down. But then again that shouldn't surprise me because everything seems to be moving in warp speed.

Here is a little sum up of some of our Holiday according to Lily:

At Mamaws house, I played peek-a-boo in a gift bag, and declared it my tent.

At Great-Grams I danced and showed everyone my new piggie bank toy that your Aunt Pam bought ,I loved it so much I even slept with one of the coins all night.

At Grandma and Pop Pops I feasted on turkey and broccoli, enjoyed opening all of my gifts, and then played the whole time with my old alphabet block books.

At Papa and grandma's house I hung out with Papa and my new best friend cousin Skylar all night. I opened all of my presents and couldn't wait to start playing with them. I danced and twirled around the living room for Great Grandma and Uncle Kenny and Slept the whole way home.

Today I am going to go over Grammies and Grandpa's house with Great Grandpa Kobus and open more gifts and share another Delicious meal with my family.

*****pictures will be posted soon until then here is a picture from last christmas

How I Feel

“…I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way.”

Letters to Liliana

Dear Liliana,

A year ago on Christmas day you were a tiny 3 month old with a gummy smile, and curious eyes. Everything and everyone was still so new to you.  You sat quietly in the laps of your relatives just taking everything in, and enjoying all the festivities.Your first Christmas was just as incredible as we thought it would be and a million times better. You were and still are the greatest gift we have ever received.

And Today, as we sit and watch you slowly open your gifts, we are thankful to be so truly blessed. We watched you, Your eyes so big as you took everything in. You showered us in good morning kisses and giggles as you crawled towards dada in your new tent and play tunnel.

You were the center of attention and entertainment at EVERY christmas party that we went to. You were so cute. You danced, twirled, jumped, talked, played, ran,and loved everywhere we went. You brought the Christmas spirite and excitement back into everyones lives. You gave the gift of Christmas.

It is so hard for me to believe that you have already experienced your second christmas, and I find myself asking the same question once again; where did the time go?

With that, I just wanted to say Thank you Lily, Thank you for filling everyone's hearts with love, joy and appreciation for the holidays. I love you so much, more than I can ever express to you, and I am trully greatful to have you as my daughter. Merry Christmas Baby Girl.

My Lovey

I love Liliana.
Always. Every second. Forever.
There are moments, however, when for some reason, I feel this overwhelming sense of love for her. I actually feel my heart is going to explode from all the love. It is such a strong feeling, it always makes me want to cry. Sometimes I look at her playing, without her noticing, and I feel so lucky and blessed and happy to have her in my life.

Oh Christmas Tree

Our tree has been up for a few weeks now. We put it in the front corner by the television. I love it in that spot and i often catch myself just staring at it. Our tree is full of so many memories each ornament tells a story about our lives together and the family that we have made over the years. My favorite ornament this year is Lilys own little contributation: her bunny; though he is only perched when lily decides. I love how sincere she looks as she places her forever friend on the tree, and how excited she becomes after he is secure and safe nestled in the branches.

We let Lily run her fingers across the evergreen needles. We pluck off baby safe ornaments for her to turn over in her small hands and I keep making promises that as soon as mama gets her butt in gear and starts wrapping, soon there will be pretty packages to explore there too.

I can't wait to take Lily over her Grammie's house on Friday to make christmas cookies. It is going to be so much fun, i am going to take so many pictures. I really need to start capturing the simple special moments of Lilys life on film again, I was doing so good while she was a baby but now that she is a toddler and moving 100 mph it is so hard, but no more excuses. Pictures i will take even if they are all blurry.

Speaking of Lily being a Toddler. She reminds me little by little everyday how quickly she has and continues to transform from a baby to a toddler. Yesterday morning she surprised me by picking out her outfit. While folding laundry with me, Lily spoted her (im assuming favorite) dress in the basket. She picked it up and placed it on her head trying to get it on. She then walked over to me dress in hand, grunted, and signed "help". I just stopped and starred at her for a moment i couldn't believe my baby was picking out her first outfit and signing to me that she needed me to help her get it on. She astonishes me more and more each day I can not believe how smart my baby girl ..opps i mean big girl is... Anyways so i put Lilys dress on right over her pj's she was just beside herself spinning and clapping in her dress. I managed to snap a photo over her once she slowed down a bit.

My Super Brain Baby....

Sick Baby.....

So out of nowhere I have a sick baby. It is just a viral something, but ick! Liliana just feels down. I have to admit, she is a pretty easy sick baby. She is just eating less, cuddling more, and sleeping more (although a bit fitfully). And, as always, she prefers Mom. But she does that anyway. Honestly, this isn't a big deal, I just feel bad for her. Although i will admit i got a little nervous last night when she woke up in the middle of the night with a 103.1 degree temp. That really threw me off, but we got through it, and today we have just been hanging out and cuddling a lot.

   In other news Liliana is going to be 14 months old in 3 days. I can not believe it, where has the time gone. I never really listened to anyone while i was pregnant and even the first few months after having her when they said " She is going to grow up so fast, enjoy and cherish every moment" Well boy o boy they were all way to right on that one. Which is the main reason for this blog, so that i can take a little time everynight to type out what is going on in Lily and our lives, so i can remember everything. I really wish i would have strarted doing this when she was first born, no when i found out i was pregant but with much regret i did not. But better late then never right ?
