Today JR and I went outside and were picking up avacados from our tree. He was so cute helping me out and running around in the grass. I decided to take a minute and take a couple of pictures of my precious little boy. I have to post them so everyone can see what a gift from God he is!

Happy 16th Birthday Taylor!


Like I mentioned in my previous post, I've been a bit busy this week! Taylor turned 16 last Sunday! My baby is already 16 years old! She is a wonderful young lady, she adores her brothers and sisters and wanted to take a picture with J.R. as soon as we got there! We spent a very nice Sunday afternoon with her friends and Monday it was back to school for her too! Happy birthday baby (your still my baby!)

Julian had surgery!


I did make mention that Julian had minor surgery yesterday. Poor baby boy had a circumcision. I'm happy to report that he is doing very well today. He is a very brave little boy, he didn't cry yesterday nor did he cry today. He is a bit uncomfortable at times but we change him every hour to prevent him from hurting. Thank goodness we are done with that! I took a couple of pictures of him in his little hospital gown (he is so sweet!)

Mandy's 1st Day in Kindergarten

Monday Was the 1st Day Back To School


I'm a bit behind on my blog entries this week. It's been a rather busy week for me. The girls started school on Monday and Julian had surgery yesterday. Minor surgery but it's still surgery! So I'm posting all the weeks events at one time. I have more pictures that will be posted later today (if time allows).. It was Mandy's 1st day in Kindergarten and she was very excited. Alexis is now a big 4th grader who is very confident and loves her school!

Congratulations J.R.

Quiet Weekend

We didn't do anything exciting this weekend, pretty unusual for us... My computer a DELL decided it was going to die on me. I mean it wouldn't do anything but give me that dreeded blue screen. We all know what that means.. So, being the cautious person I am, I purchased an extended warranty. This warranty entitles me to contact Dell's Customer Support. They did everything possible to irritate the heck outta me and only supported a massive headache. They transferred me from person to person, and when they couldn't figure out what to do they would just disconnect me... Well, after a total of about 8 long hours that ranged from Thursday to Saturday my computer was fixed. I will NEVER purchase another Dell again!!!!!! Sad because I really liked Dell... My next one will be an iMac...

Well, I got my PC back up and managed to create these... Thanks to Ana, I found some seriously nice digi websites where there's lots of beautiful kits to choose from. I redid my favorite picture of the boys, I'm going to print it and frame it. It's special to me and I'm going to display it!

My favorite!


Here's my favorite picture taken at the beach last weekend. Needs no words.

Sunday, August 3, 2008


This was Julian's first day at the beach. He really enjoyed it. I was shocked to see this child had absolutely no fear of the water. His only concern was that I leave him alone to ride the waves. Oh and he also wanted to eat the sand.

This beach is located directly behind our condominum. It's called Jaysee Park and it's a very nice beach for young children because it's a part of the inlet which means the waves are very mild. They also have a beautiful park directly in front of the beach area that includes a small water park for the kids.

Julian's 1st Time At the Beach!!!
