food for thought...

There are no mistakes in's just filled with alot of life lessons. Some of them are good and some of them you won't want to repeat. Strength, character and courage are what we will gain in the end!

it's my birthday and.....

i'll cry if I want worries, I won't go into a song...but really so today I am 36 years old and you know what? I don't feel like crying. Birthdays have never bothered me. I was excited about turning 21 (who isn't) and when I hit 30 I loved it! I don't feel old at all. Now there are days that my body feels used and abused but as far as my mind goes I think its pretty young (sometimes anyway). All I asked for from my family this day is to give me a quiet home with no arguing or fighting. We shall see if they deliver!

Happy Birthday's go out to Sarah and Carmen!!!!!!

Answer: Gracie! She got ahold of my camera and decided to take a picture of herself! I tell you, these little girls are smart!

summer days...the pool

Emily is braver than ever!
"I Like the pool!"
"Look mom and dad, no adults!"

Yesterday we took the kids to the pool at Aunt Teresa's house. We had such a nice time. Everyone got along and no one got sun burned!

summer days...the beach

Yesterday we took a trip to the beach. If I am not mistaken it was the first time. Well...advice to my brother, don't spend a ton of money on vacations to exotic beaches. Once I put Gracie on the sand with bare feet she was already done! I was able to get her to stand on the wet sand and let a little water touch her feet. Emily on the other hand, loved the sand but was terrified of the water. Though it was a short visit it was still fun. The boys were able to play and the weather was nice!

summer days.....

Since I will be watching the girls this week I thought it would be fun to document their week in pictures. What better way to beat the heat then by playing in the sprinklers!
