Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA lately but my computer is still getting fixed. I'm hoping to get it back this weekend. Seems like it's been forever, in a sense it has been 2 weeks!. We have had a long week. We just wrapped up the baseball season, yesterday. And boy, are we proud of those boys. They had a awesome season!!
Our oldest is getting ready to leave on a 2 week summer tour with the select choir group. They will be going to Montreal, Canada - Boston and New York. She's super excited about it!! Keep us in prayer!
Tomorrow is field day for both kiddos. More SUN for us!!
We've reached the end of the school year. Yay!! The kids can't wait for summer to begin. And quite frankly, neither can I.
I just found out today that I will be returning to work next Fall. WOOHOO - A prayer answered!!!
Our house papers are being finalized - it has taken longer than we expected but that's OK. We know everything will work out.

I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend.

Quick story that I wanted to share before I go -
L and I went to the Dallas Zoo today with a few of our good friends. We enjoyed it!!
Too funny so I have to share - as soon as we walk in I ask L what she would like to see. It went a little like this...
Me: L what animals would you like to see first?
L: I want to see Gorillas mamma.
Me: Ok, lets go see them.
(as we got closer, i could see the excitement in her eyes. Mind you she had NEVER seen the real thing. She only knew the ones in her books., the last time we were at the zoo was when she was 7 months old...sooo.....)
We pull up and I could clearly see it sitting by the window, but she never saw it coming. As she approached the glass window to look in. It stood up and looked her right in the face. She let out the LOUDEST scream and ran!!!
L: I just want tooooo goooo HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It took her a while to get out of the stroller again. It was so sad but too funny!
We talked about it all the way home and had to share it with everyone who would listen.

This weekend we are headed to Farmers Branch for a weekend tournamnet - fun, fun!!!

I HEART FACES - laughter

i heart faces is a photography blogsite that hosts weekly photo contests for both kids and adults. This week's theme is "laughter" and since I always have my camera in tow and love to take pictures this easy for me.

My adult entry is a picture of me and my husband at my 30th birthday bash. We had a blast hanging with old friends.

Anytime that our little one can talk us into taking her to the park. This is where we end up most of the time. She was laughing the entire time. Too cute!

Not Me Monday!

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.
I absolutely did not have the best time with my 2 girls Friday evening. WE didn't have dinner at Chickfila. And we didn't go to the movie theater to see 17 Again. It was not a cute movie either....hehehe
My husband did not (as the kids would say it) PIMP my ride this weekend. Who does that as a gift for their wife for Mothers Day....
I did not eat the best burger at Red Robin on Saturday while on a date with my hubby.
I certainly did have a greatest day with my family yesterday. And I am truly not blessed to have them in my life.

Are you a mom? Are you missing from the picture? Most moms I know are, but here is a great meme that gets us moms out from behind the lens and into the spotlight!
My oldest daughter and I at the mall on her birthday!

Not Me's

- Still no's really NOT starting to wear on me! Seems like the guy is in a rush to get it fixed. Don't ya think??
- It was not me who ran 1/2 mile with my daughter in my arms in the rain storm while at my sons baseball tournament in McKinney this weekend,. I also didn't almost lose my jeans because they were so WET.
- We also did not get confirmation Friday that we will be closing on our house in 2 weeks or less.
- I didn't go to Charming Charlies this weekend to buy my Mother's Day gift already. Nope not me!
- I didn't have date night Friday with my hubby. We didn't go eat Macaroni Grill and go to the movie theater either. What fun would that be,.
- We did not pick out our new refrigerator this weekend. Aand we did not change our minds more than once.
- We also did not make more changes to our new house plans.

I'm a guest poster!!!

Yay! This is my very first time doing this for someone, so I'm kinda nervous!! I'm Alicia from More Than Words, and I'm so honored that Ro
ni would ask me to do a post for her today while her computer is getting fixed! I know the feeling, so I am more than happy to help her out!

Speaking of computers, my grandma and a couple of my aunts pitched in to get my mom a laptop for her birthday. My mom recently got laid off from her job, and without a computer at home, it can be very inconvenient to have to go to the library to use one. Especially looking for a new's just hard!

Anyway, they had it sent here because they knew I would be able to get it started for her, and help her out with the basic functions. My mom was super excited to come over the next day and try it out!

But, before she came, I had to pray and ask the Lord to PLEASE give me the patience to show her how to use it do I say this nicely? Let's just say things can just go right over her head sometimes. You get what I'm saying?

Anywho..I showed her how to turn on the laptop, open the DVD drive, bookmark pages, shut it know...all the basic knowledge she needs to have. I felt pretty confident that she could handle it from there! I think she was mostly excited that she could play CD's and DVD's on it! LOL!

She ends up calling me about 30 minutes later, and we were back at square one.

I want to share some of the questions she was asking's hilarious now just thinking of it.

I'm not making any of this up..I promise you! Here goes...

"I just talked to Auntie Ofelia (her sister), and she was wondering how I could watch a DVD if I didn't have internet service yet?"

"The DVD player isn't working. Am I supposed to turn the computer on for it to work?"

"Do I need Wi-Fi to watch a DVD?"

"It doesn't have a handle?"

"Does it have Ebay?"

"You mean, I can bring this to the library and use it there?"

"Do I have to stand in the kitchen while I'm using this?"

There was probably more, but those are the ones that stick out the most. I don't even want to tell you what my answers were to her because then you would think I was very rude..LOL!

She started getting frustrated and said, "I'm just going to turn this off. I'm scared I'm going to break it. How do I do that again?" me!! :)

Gotta love her!
