I am sorry friends but I just cannot keep up with school and kids and life.. my 365 is just an added stress right now. I will be following yours and look forward to all of your beautiful pictures!

Day 74 (3/15)

Today was the first day of spring break and after the crazy weather we have had, it was nice to actually have spring weather. The boys and I cleaned the house and then I took them outside to ride their bikes and decided to weed my flowerbeds. I walked into the garage to put the trash can back and in walks Xaver, "Here mom, I found some more around your tree"... Xavier pulled up all of my tulips! At least he was trying to help!

Day 73 (3/14)

One of the reasons I LOVE weekends. I have my own personal chef ;) Hubby takes good care of me... he is also the reason I am back on diet pills :P

Day 72 (3/13)

Bari James.. my baby is getting so big!

Day 71 (3/12)

I'm kind of bummed that this is the first day I forgot to take a picture. So I am going to improvise because I did scan almost 100 old pictures from highschool yesterday. So I am going to use my 2 favorites as my 365 for yesterday.

"And if I had it to do all over, I'd do it all over again, If tomorrow I found one more chance to begin, I'd love you all over again"

Wow, how young we were! This is the morning after my junior prom; I was 17 years old. It was also Adam's 21st birthday. Prom was a Thursday night and all of my friends skipped school the Friday and hung out and got drunk with Adam for his birthday. I had a test and couldn't skip. So here I am in my uniform getting ready to go to school! So many people probably thought we were crazy for getting married so young but I was never more sure of anything in my life. How many people get it right so young? We have already shared so much of our lives with each other. Now here we are over 10 yrs and 4 kids later and I couldn't love him more. <3

Day 70 (3/11)

My little man has been having more problems with his ears. His hearing seems to be getting worse and he is constantly crying that his left ear hurts. His specialist at TX children's would not put tubes in his ears bc it is his bad ear that had the fluid and it wouldnt improve his hearing anyway.... soooo I got another opinion and I MUCH rather his new doctor. Right away she suggested tubes and after hearing my baby cry throughout the night with his hurt ears for the last month I am happy we did it. Even if it doesn't improve his hearing, I don't want my baby in pain. He was such a trooper. All of the nurses and even the anesthesiologist(sp?) fell in love with him. He walked off to his surgery like such a big boy, not scared at all. The doctor said his left ear was really really bad.. it was already draining by the time he got to recovery. So heres to my little man feeling better and hopefully hearing better as well!

Day 69 (3/10)

I meant to take a picture of Daddy and his boys before they left and forgot so I rushed and snapped one of the boys in the van! Daddy and the boys had a guys night. he took them watch his old college team, The Colonals play in the tournament in Katy. They were told they could only go if they had good days at school and don't you know Xa and kari come home with bad days. We let them believe they werent going until after Bari and Parker were already in the van and then caved... we are such saps! I don't care.. I would feel worse if I made them really miss it! They had such a GREAT time. They came home still yelling GO TURNALS!!!! Parker was quite upset that they lost but they all enjoyed their night out with Daddy!

Day 66(3/7)

We took the boys to the park for a few hours.. had a picnic, hubby played Tball with them and they made lots of little friends. It was a very nice, relaxing Sunday!

Excuse the photo, it was taken on my phone. I did remember the camera, but forgot the SD card in my computer!

Day 65 (3/6)

300 days to go! WOW!

Hubby and I went out to Los Cucos to celebrate Karlita's 25th birthday. We had a great time. I LOVE my friends :) Carnalas por vida!

My little Cowboys!!! They are too cute. I got them hats and shirts and Bari said momma we need big belts! LOL They had to settle for regular belts.

Day 63 (3/4)

Well, I've avoided pulling that tooth for as long as I could manage. His dentist said if we didnt have those two front teeth out by Spring break he needed to pull them. So, this is Xavier's new smile... what a difference one tooth makes! He looks too big now! One down, one more to go. *sniff*sniff*

Day 62 (3/3)

It is rodeo time in Houston! YEEEHAW! The boys have rodeo day at school Friday so I spent the day looking for cowboy hats... finally found some at Party city. The boys LOVE them! They have been running around yelling "yeeehaw riding on a cowboy!" No matter how many times I tell them it is "ride um cowboy," they insist it is "riding ON a cowboy!"

Day 61 (3/2)

Parker has never had a problem playing by himself. While the boys were at school he decided he wanted to go grill some chicken. He has an empty bottle of seasoning in one hand and a sauce brush in the other. As you can see he borrowed various other items off daddy's pit. He was "painting, seasoning, and flipping" his chicken. Love their imagination!

Day 60 (3/1)

Sir barks a lot got a much needed hair cut. Isn't he a cutie?

Day 59 (2/28)

It was a BEAUTIFUL Sunday, and my hubby had to go to work. Rather than waste the day I took the boys out to Denny's and they drove me absolutely crazy!!!! I don't know why they behave so much better when daddy is around but while we were waiting for their food they were so impatient.. fighting, crawling under the table, bouncing on the seat.. needless to say momma will only be taking them out to FAST food when Daddy is not able to come with us for a while!

Day 58 (2/27)

We spent this Saturday shopping with the boys and then I went to the movies with my friend Johanna. We saw Brother's and it was a really good movie.. I love the movies and am so lucky to have found such a great movie date! When I got home this is how I found my dear husband.. lying on the couch watching non other than southpark on his laptop! I realized that I did not get a picture all day so he once again is my subject.

I am really starting to slack on my 365.. forgetting til the last minute to take pictures and not being as creative as I intended to be.. but since the semester started I am so busy.. but determined to see this thing through... I will try to be better! :)

Day 57 (2/26)

Bari is my video game addict. Xavier and Kari also like to play but they will put it down to go outside. If the Wii is on, there is no chance of getting Bari out of the house. I have to limit him or he would be on this thing all day! As much as I don't want him to play all of the time, it is the biggest bargaining chip I have with him. We tried everything to get him to behave at school and so far the only thing he will work for is his hour a day with the Wii. Whatever works right?
