Day 54 (2/23)

Isn't this cute? This is what my darling child has looked like for about the last 2 hours. Somebody has his toy, its not the show he wants to watch, he can't drink pepsi... the list goes on and on and on... he was not too happy to see that his tantrum is not getting the attention he desires.. in fact he was quite upset to see me pull out the camera ;)

Day 53 (2/22)

So the sun has made only a few brief appearances in the last few months... we are taking advantage while we can. The boys have been out in the back yard since they got home. We are looking at possible snow tomorrow night... no wonder we all stay sick!

Day 52 (2/21)

Thank you husband for buying my children these hideous shoes!!! Bari and Parker just had to have the police light up sketchers.. I must say if hubby had not been there, my kids would have left crying but momma would have loved their shoes! They are lucky to have him. He will give them anything they want.. I told them their shoes were "fonky"(tacky) and now they are telling everyone... and I do mean EVERYONE, including the waitor at Chili Beans(chili's), that they have new ponky shoes. They think it is something good! LOL As much as I hate these shoes, I am happy my hubby made me get them for my kids... bc they are extremely happy with them! I guess this is one fight I am glad I lost... sort of!

Day 51 (2/20)

Adam, his father and Arik before they left for the basketball game.

Day 50 (2/19)

Today I started off with the plan of shopping til I dropped!... then I realized the boys had a half day of school so that plan was shot down. Eli ended up in the hospital and so Matt and lil E came over to play. The boys played so well. Monster Jam of course. ♥ these boys!

Day 49 (2/18)

I am loving all my MNO to the movies lately. I could go every day! Tonight Johanna and I saw New Moon.. her first time, my third, and I still love it! I had a great time! Thanks for being my date Jo! :D

Day 47 (2/16)

Today we had Parker's long anticipated final hearing screen.. we thought we would get GREAT results and it wasnt exactly what we were expecting. My baby is almost deaf in his left ear. Its really hard to accept that this all came from a flu but as hard as it is, I am sooooooo thankful that he can hear and is doing so well.. a few months ago we were devastated to find out he may never hear again... he has been amazing and so strong through this entire ordeal. I love my little angel.

"God Grant Me the Serenity
to accept the things
I cannot change,
Courage to change the things
I can, and the wisdom
to know the difference."

Day 46 (2/15)

Yes, I forgot to take a picture and all of the boys were in bed... Colston is my go to guy!

Day 45 (2/14)

We spent the day with the kiddos.. hubby grilled ribeyes and shrimp... we played some backyard foodball with the boys... and hubby worked with them on their touchdown dances... boy are we in trouble!

Day 43 (2/12)

Soo I am cheating in a way because the photo of parker was taken yesterday but the other 3 were today!

Parker's little girlfriend Scarlett is in the class next door to his.. she walked over and gave him a special heart sucker.. his teacher made sure to tell me that she did not get this for anyone else in her class... they tell everyone that they are going to marry each other ♥

Today I went to school for Kari, Bari and Xa's Valentine's parties and I feel bad that I have to split myself in three.. I spend the whole time running between classes because I want to be there for all 3 of them. It has always been very important to me that I am there for as many school functions as I can be and I was reminded why today. A little girl in Bari's class was crying her eyes out because her Mommy didn't come see her at school and she never gets to see her Mommy in the morning before school... it just broke my heart... I literally had to walk away while the teacher handled it... I know some Mom's have to work and can't take off but I am just soooo thankful that I am not one of them! I even got to read a story to Bari's class! ♥

Day 42 (2/11)

MNO-Dear John. OMG Such a GREAT GREAT movie! It is not often that I like a movie better than a book but the ending to the movie was soooo much better... Channing was very easy on the eyes and I enjoyed the company of some fabulous ladies! ♥

Day 41 (2/10)

Have I mentioned that this child loves to eat?

Day 40 (2/9)

As you can see from the expression on my lovely child's face.. they are getting a little tired of my camera! Wow.. I have 325 days left and am running out of things to take pictures of! So... I am getting a little playful in photoshop... tonight its a cartoon version of Xavier!

Day 39 (2/8)

Today Bari was being very "special." That is my nice way of saying he screamed and threw tantrums from the second we walked through the door. He had a fit to do his homework and then screamed he was sorry for 40 minutes because i told him to go take a bath... apparently he thinks bathtime is a punishment! Bari has a way of testing me like you would not believe. After he finally took his bath and chilled out he came downstairs for supper in a much better mood.

I decided for my 365 instead of focusing my day on the bad to document the one cute thing he did this evening :) Daddy cooked us meatball stew and corn on the cob. Bari pigged out and when he was finished showed me his belly and said he was sooo full he was having a baby in his belly.... his teacher is on maternity leave ;)

Day 38 (2/7)

THE SAINTS HAVE WON THE SUPERBOWL!!!!!!!! I think I am still in shock! I just love my football team. I also love my friends! Thanks for another fabulous time! Carnalas por vida!!!!! ;D

Day 37 (2/6)

This morning hubby decided to teach the boys the art of paper football... he even went into the garage and constructed them some uprights and used the green from his golf putting set to make them some turf!

I love the weekends when they get to spend this quality time with their daddy. He works so far away that they are usually in bed by the time he gets home. They sort of stalk him and I don't mind ;D

Day 35 (2/4)

These boys are loud, crazy, messy, funny, silly, loving.. my house is anything but quiet and is only clean when they are not home. A friend posted this poem today and I just love it and find it quite fitting:

Excuse This House

Some houses try to hide the fact
That children shelter there,
Ours boasts it quite openly,
The signs are everywhere.

For smears are on the windows,
Little smudges are on the doors.
I should apologize, I guess,
For toys strewn on the floor.

But I sat down with my children
And we played and laughed and read.
And if the doorbell doesn't shine,
Their eyes will shine instead.

For when at times I'm forced to choose
The one job or the other,
I'd like to cook and clean and scrub,
But first I'll be a mother.

Day 34 (2/3)

Xavier and Kari have the worst hair ever.. Xaviers is coarse like a brillo pad and kari's is very thin and he has a receding hairline. Thank God they both look GREAT bald! I can't stand it when their hair starts to grow out and ideally I would cut it every weekend but I push it to every other week. I just love their little bald heads! ♥ my hot boys

Day 33 (2/2)

Colston Brees! The best and the worst dog on the planet! He better thank the puppy Gods that hes so darn cute!

Day 32 (2/1)

I HATE dieting and I LOVE to eat... it sucks! Thankfully has a great healthy living section which is where I found this very simple Basil Parmesian chicken recipe. Who would think diced tomatoes, basil, onions, garlic and salt could be so yummy? Here's to shedding a few lbs in 2010!

Excuse the fine China! I am getting lazy on my 365 and have resorted to taking a photo of food.. I will do better! LOL
