Do you want to be part of my costume?

Alright peeps I've decided to "kinda" dress up for Halloween.
I know I'm usually a prude and don't do it so I'm meeting everyone half way!
I've decided to be FACEBOOK for Halloween and I need YOUR help!

I would love for any of my facebook friends to post here and to add a "status". I will pick some to add to MY costume. LOL
So post away peeps. Please no fowl language.

Hugs
Suzy West

Freaking Awesome!

Sunday our family decided to get together and go to Fleet Week in San Francisco.
Since my dad opened up his new dental lab we haven't seen my parents as much as we are used to seeing them. My parents are so cute! They miss each other when they are not together so my mom goes to work with him.
I've been traveling a lot so we all needed time together.
The day was absolutely beautiful!!! 75 degrees in San Francisco is

I love this picture of us girls!!! Christian took the picture.
This is one of my favorite walls in Ghiradelli Square

We asked someone to take our picture. It's not great but that's okay.
I love the picture!!
My bigger babies!! Angel and Christian. They are so cute!!
Okay gotta say that I think my little Sierra is an amazing photographer. I asked her to take our picture and to please get a little bit of the background. She rocked this picture!!! I love how she put us on the side...focused...and then moved the camera over to capture the background as well!! I was wow'd when I saw the picture!
Our view during the air show!!
The blue Angels!! They were great!!
It was a freaking awesome day!!!

I will...

Tristan is one of the most special little beings I know!! I honestly believe that when he was in heaven our Heavenly Father put some extra finishing touches on him before sending him down because this kid is fabulous!
He brings so much happiness in my life! I love being his grandma!!
I laugh just thinking of the crazy things he does and tries to say.
I love that when he sees me he gets so excited to show me what is in his hands even if it's just a bag full of cereal.

I love that he often has this look on his face. It's the one he has when he's trying to figure something out.

I love that he's curious and what ever you point at he needs to look and says, "ooooh" even though there maybe nothing there. LOL

I love that even though we call him by name a thousand times he won't look up until he's done doing what he's doing.

I love that our Heavenly Father looked at him and knew he would be the perfect son for Angel and Christian! I love that he trusts that they will do the best they can for him.
I love that he's part of me and that through out his life no matter what age he is or I am ...he'll know for a fact that he can come to me and I'll always be there.
I will always make time for him.
I will always be ready to shower him with hugs and kisses.
I will always say the words, "I love you" when I see him.
I'll always tell him the truth.
I'll always see only the good in him.
I'll be the one with the posters screaming out his name at his kindergarten graduation.
I'll be the old lady with the crazy looking sweater vests wearing an "I heart Tristan" button that lights up when he graduates from high school.
I'll be the proud grandma that will be crying from pure happiness when I watch him get married.
I will...infinity!!

I love you my little sweetheart!
Grandma

let the countdown begin!

I was invited to teach at Treasured Memories in Oak Park, Ca in December.
I will be teaching a few classes and one of them is this project that I made at an all day crop.
It's using Punky Sprouts 12x12 corrugated boards and Echo Park Christmas line.
I adhered everything with Helmar's 450 Quick Dry!!
what do you think?
Speaking of countdowns, as many of you know my knees have been in pretty bad shape for a while. I had surgery on my right knee a couple of years ago and will have to have surgery on it again in the future. I just found out that I have to have surgery on my LEFT one in December!
I'm totally scared but I know it will help me.
So let the countdown begin!
