Daddy missed her tap (which included a Train Dance...and absolutely adorable) but he made it in time for some of her Ballet! This is the first time she has "performed" in front of everyone! I am soo proud of her!!

Hannah loves dance, absolutely loves it! Here are a few sneak peaks at what she has been doing, including playing around with Ms. Kaylee! She adores her teacher :) This coming Saturday I will be adding a video of Hannah doing some of her dance moves to share!

She will do all the dance steps while the parents aren't in the room (did I mention that we are not allowed in there?). I know it helps Hannah who acts all shy once the parents do come back in). So I plan to "sneak" a video through the window while Hannah is not paying attention.

For now enjoy these!!

I am currently missing three toothbrushes. Yes, thats right. Three. Two of which are the girls and my unfortunate one. Sigh. The girls have a habit of taking their toothbrushes and walking around with them after they are done spitting and rinsing. Really, who is watching these kids??

So Hannah tells me that after she lost her toothbrush and since Kylie's is nowhere to be seen she just went ahead and used mine. Gee, thanks. I used Danny's toothbrush. Yes, yes I can hear ya'll saying "eww" and "gross", but honestly I kiss the boy so really its not that different. Kinda.

But anyway, I need to find the girls' toothbrushes and probably buy myself another one. Because you just don't know where or what mine has been through or on or put into.....ewww..........I'm not going to think about that right now. Neither should you!

Hello my dear faithful readers  ;)

Just as I got back into the swing of things here on my blog I might be taking a haitus from it.  I know, I know...BOOOO!! 

Times are tough, baby, times are tough!

We are trying to eliminate our debt and reduce some of our costs of living and internet right now is not a priority.  And it has become quite expensive so we are cutting back to basic cable and no inernet.  However, we will be checking our hotmail and facebook regularly so keep in contact with us through that.  And there is a chance we will be able to pick up wifi so who knows!  But for now this might be my last official blog for awhile.  I know I will miss it and will miss updating ya'll on our lives.  

So until next time...............

A sneak peak at whats to come.

Tuesday, September 15, 2009


This is my attempt to share with my handful of readers a yummy recipe each week, cleverly (sarcastic) named Tasty Tuesdays. Enjoy! If you try it or will try it let me know how it turns out! Thx :)

Some of these will be my own creation, some will be passed down from close friends and Rachael Ray!

Southwest Chicken Salad with Basil

a bunch of shredded chicken

the corn off two corn on the cobs

1 can of Ro-Tel with cilantro and lime

1 can of black beans

the juice of 1/2 lime


lots of torn, fresh basil

1/4 cup sour cream, plus an extra dollop

Mix all ingredients together, except the dollop of sour cream. Chill. Serve with more torn basil and the sour cream dollop on top.
Fight your children or significant other off, because they will want some and you will not want to share.


For the past fourish maybe five days, I have lost count, it has been raining. Thundering. Lightning. Pouring. Pool overflowing. Kids going crazy. Mama going crazy. Raining. So I have had to pull a few tricks out of my sleeve to keep myself and the kids from going stir crazy. One of these things is making our own fingerpaint. Fingerpaint that smells grapelicios!! So we have literally been up to our elbows in paint projects which we all love!! Without these gray, gloomy, rain-filled days we would have never had experienced the grape-tastic days.

Since we have been inside so much these past few days we have had the chance to explore our "once old now new" toys. Welcome Barbie!! Wow, who knew a 3 1/2 year old could get so wrapped up into Barbie??!! I certaintly would not have put any money on my daughter to play with any said toy for a solid two hours. Thats right. I said TWO HOURS!!! Thats amazing!! And did I mention for a good part of that two hours she was playng by herself?? To me, that is mind blowing! We have been dressing and undressing barbies. Taking them to the "beach" in their barbie car. Giving them baths, washing their hair, and taking them to "parties"! Its great fun really. Kinda weird since I never played barbies as a kid. She must get it from her Aunty Auty!!

We have also been paying more close attention to the garbage can. We have noticed that Kylie has been throwing away quite a few things. Just for the fun of it. Yesterday I alone found her wipe box, the t.v. remote, a necklace, a spoon, her sippy cup, and a shirt just to name a few all in the trash. Fun times picking through the trash! Really breaks up the rainy day.

Well,I am off to go play playdough (another activity that has saved our sanity, listen to a children's book on tape with Hannah, and probably dress some barbies and do some garbage picking. I know you are so jealous!! Peace Out!

I use to be a great runner. I ran track and cross country in high school and college. I even received medals. Which I proudly put on display via my leather letterman's jacket. Yes, I was that awesome. Nowadays? Me and running don't really go hand-in-hand like we use to. But I am going to change that. Thanks to my sister-in-law Autumn who has lit a fire under my booty! The girl despises running. But she has challenged herself to give it a try. And she is doing great. I couldn't be prouder of my little sis! heehee So now I have to show her who's the boss when it comes to running. And hopefully that will be me! JK But seriously I do feel like I need to get back into it. I am really looking forward to two different marathons coming up in October. I plan to walk the one 5K with my one friend who will be 37 weeks pregnant~~heck, if she can walk it than I can too. And then I plan to run a 5K after that. Its called the Autumn Equinox.....I love that name!! I hope Texas delivers a beautiful autumn day that day! So wish me luck! Tonight I hit the high school stomach is already doing flips just thinking about it. I have so many memories associated with a track that it will be exciting to see if I can even run one lap around! I am sure Hannah will help me if I need it. She is always up for a game of Monsters and Princesses!!!

So cheers!! I am drinking my last Mt. Dew for a very long time. Here on out its crystal light and pasta!!! Which doesn't sound that bad after all..........
