Bad Blogger.....

Hi all,

I just recently ready my BFF blog it was saying something crazy...she's a bad blogger and I was ROFLMBO!!!!! If she thinks she's bad then what does that make me???? Honestly she's the best! And without even knowing it gave me a swift kick in the pants to post another blog on my own page!

My DD played soccer for the first time this Spring and really seemed to enjoy herself. I have to admit that there is a small little part of me hoping that the soccer bug will bite her just as it did me at that age. (4) Since neither of my boys really got into soccer my last hope was with my DD. She's so much like I was at that age, very quick and left footed! Awesome!!! Anyway, I am not sure she's completely sold on the whole soccer idea but at least she gave it a good try. She goes back and forth from "yes I want to play again and no, I just want to do baseball"....go figure! So all that to say here are a few pics of her soccer days.....
'Although in most of those pics it seems she's using her right foot which will make her an even better soccer player...LOL!!! Being able to use both feet is much harder than it seems! She also enjoyed playing the "dog catcher" which is what our really cool coach called the goalie. We really lucked out in the coach department this time!!! That is SO RARE!!!!! Here are some pics of her in the "dog house"....the goal.

Well, that's it for the soccer post....I am trying to find some pics of me at that age to compare so maybe I'll have one of those up one of these days.

Thanks to my BF for gettin' my rear in gear! Let's just hope I can keep it up!

DS #2 6th Birthday

Here are some pics of the other half of the pool party birthday. We celebrated my DS#2's 6th birthday on that day too. He's was officially 6 on April 24th....

Here are the awesome cupcakes that were done for him....

Here are a few pics of him on the water slide....some how I missed him coming down any other time but he did eventually go down all by himself and he was very proud of himself as was I.

Here he is enjoying his gifts....thanks to all who came and thanks to all who gave gifts. It was a great party and everyone had a great time. Happy Birthday my sweet boy! I love you!!!

Spring Break at The Ft. Worth Zoo

Here are some pictures of our trip to the Ft. Worth Zoo during Spring Break. We had a lot of fun and I love the Ft Worth Zoo. The kids and I went by ourselves and we truly had a great time! They were so well behaved and really liked seeing all the animals. We took our own food and drinks and that makes life so much easier. We had a whine free day and it was a true blessing to get to spend time with my kids like that. I find myself always dwelling on the things that they do to make me a little nuts and I kick myself when I realize how much that affects the way I treat them. This day reminded me that I have 3 of the best kids and I NEED to look all the good rather than the bad. When it comes down to it their goodness outweighs their bad by country mile! The Lord has blessed me with 3 kids with spirits that are as sweet as they come. They love the Lord and love their family and friends with all of their hearts. I thank God everyday for my kids and I could not imagine my life without them! THANK YOU LORD!!!!

This is DS#1 and DD....they really do love each other. He especially loves his little sister, she'll be well protected when she gets older...;)
Here is DS#2 and DD...they are best buddies. She's really misses him since he started kindergarten this year....

Here they are observing the "primates"....the monkeys
Next was the...

They love the Elephants and then the girraffes...

They also love the tigers and lions....that's what is so great about this zoo. You can almost always see everything they have there....did I say that I love the Ft Worth Zoo???

Have you ever seen a zoo without a HUGE flamingo habitat???

It was such a great day! Can't wait to go back....anyone wanna' go???

I have so many more great pictures but could not get them all uploaded. Any chance you get to go to the zoo...take it!

I'm back....My baby girl's 4th Birthday!

WOW!!! I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted anything. At least I've finally admitted to myself that I am not as good at blogging as I am at Face Book! I do have lots of pictures to post so hopefully I get some new stuff up here. I'll start with these....

These are pictures from DD's "family" birthday party. We had such a nice time and she seemed to have a good time. The cake was made by my friend, Sherri, and it was FABULOUS!!!

She got her pink Leapster and was so happy! Now she feels like she's just like her brothers.

Then we had her "friends" party which was combined with DS #2's birthday as well (i'll post his pics later) We had the party at the Lancaster Rec Center. It is one of the best places to have a party! It suits "kids" of all ages. Here are the cup cakes we had for her. Once again Sherri out did herself...and just like the cake these were FABULOUS too! (wait until you see the pic of DS #2 cupcakes!)

The second pic is DD with her best girlfriends! And the last is the one right after going down the big slide w/ her daddy! I can't believe she's already 4....time sure does fly!

I LOVE YOU MY SWEET ANGEL GIRL!!! To the moon and back and the stars and back biiiiiiiig much!

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Just wanted to make a post, since it's been over a month, and because I have something to actually blog about!

I received the best kind of Valentine this year. A SURPRISE!!! I was told early in the week by my DH to pack an overnight bag for each of the kids and one for me. That's it! No specifics or details. I was so excited, it's something I've asked him to do for years and prayers have been answered!

He actually took time out of his busy work schedule to plan something. For me, that speaks volumes. It makes me feel very loved and important.

So Friday afternoon after we get all loaded into the car and start to our destination, unknown even to the kids, my head started trying to figure out where we were going. As we took a familiar route I figured out we were dropping off the kids at my in-laws....YEAH!!! I did not say a word because the kids were just as excited as I was about the surprise. When we pulled into their drive way they all three sqealed with delight and were so excited to be at Mena and Papoo's and inside I was squealing too!!! So we got the kids dropped off and they would have been happy if we would have just kicked em' to the curb and left. We could not leave fast enough for them, which is something that makes me so happy. I love that they love their grandparents that much.

So we start out on our destination and I still have no clue as to where we're going. I had on jeans and boots so I knew it wasn't too fancy of a place but the sheer fact that I'd get to enjoy a hot meal with just my husband was fine with me. So we did stop for dinner and enjoyed ourselves and it was so nice to have a conversation and good food. After dinner we got back into the car and headed towards Ft. Worth.....still NO CLUE!!! We could be going anywhere! As we near down town Ft. Worth, my mind wondering where it is we're going, this route started to look familiar. Just when I thought I had it figured out....we turned. However we turned around and the familiarity was once again there. As we got near a very familiar place that had a lot of significance to our relationship I asked "are we going to Billy Bob's"? To some you may think "Billy Bob's"???? (the largest "honky tonk" in the US) But to me it was perfect because that is the place we met 14 years ago. There are so many fond memories of our dating life there. We'd go and dance every Friday and Saturday night and sometimes even Thursday's. If I do say so myself, WE WERE GOOD, and WE STILL GOT IT!!! Except the fact that we left there around 9:00 p.m. and back in the day that's the time we were just getting started! LOL!!! We had so much fun and it's nice to know that I can still boot scoot and jitterbug pretty much like the good ol' days. So once we left there and headed back towards down town Ft. Worth we made our way to the place DH had made reservations....The newly renovated Omi hotel. It was so beautiful and the room was gorgeous. We went out and walked the streets of down town, Sundance Square, holding hands. That too was a place we'd go to a lot. Dinner and a movie sometimes with friends. It brought back a lot of memories for both of us. Then this morning we got to go out to breakfast, once again with no kids!!!! It was the BEST Valentine's Day ever!!!

This surprise will last so much longer than a vase full of flowers. It just goes to show it really is

What Kind of Wife am I???

I got this from my good friends blog who got it from one of her cyber friends...
This was fun! I promise I did not cheat and I "dare" you to take the challenge! Be sure to come back and leave me a comment that you did it so I can see "What Kind of Wife" you are!


As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!

Interview Me

So, I got this idea from a good friend mine. It's a pretty neat idea. She has emailed me 5 questions. I will answer those and then, if you want to join in, leave me a comment asking me to interview you. I will send you some questions for you to answer on your blog. Fun, huh? Don't all jump up at once....and be prepared....I might ask you to interview me right back. :D

1. You are on your dream vacation. Where are you? I'd have to say somewhere in the Caribbean or Hawaii. It would be one of those all inclusive places, very high end(like celebrities go to). The dream part is that my hubby and I would have an endless supply of money. We'd be able to anything and everything we, water sport activities, golf and eat. The second part would be that about the second or third week we would invite some of our close friends to come join us all on our dime!

2. You are on the table, undergoing plastic surgery. What are you having done? Believe it or not I've thought about this a lot. It's something I'd actually do if I thought I was deserving enough to spend the money on it. I'd go from head to toe! Get my teeth fixed, lipo, breast implants (not too big and they'd have to look natural) and whatever else they could do all my body parts back in their original places! LOL!!

3. What do you want to be when you grow up? That's a hard one for me. It's pretty sad to say but I don't have aspirations like that. I never have. About the only thing I've thought about being was a girls basketball coach. I wanted to be like the coaches I had growing up. They were a huge influence on my life and so much more than just a "coach". I wanted to be able to be that for young girls.

4. You only have 1 food that you can eat for the rest of your life....what's for dinner? A plump and juicy cooked to perfection, T-bone steak!

5. You are an actress....who is your leading man? This too is a hard one for me....seeing as how I am such a TV/Movie actor junkie. I know way to much about this particular subject from professional info to personal but if I had to choose I have 3 that would be my dream but of those my top one would be Tom Hanks.
