My weekend is always fulfilling when it starts off with friends and food.  :)  I caught up with Crystal this weekend over breakfast with cups of coffees and sweet conversations.  Regular for her and decaf for me.  Sugar in both of our coffees and our conversations.  😉  We didn’t have the kiddos with us this time but here they are…Cameron, Mya & Devon minus Landon not too long ago…


Every month at school, there is a theme.  This month the kindergartners are learning all about bears!  I’m amazed at all of the things they learn and can obtain.  Last week, the kids were sent home with their first big project.  They were given a template of a bear to dress and decorate as they wish.  The bear could be a ballerina, a firefighter, a doctor…whatever they wanted.  Once the bear is  decorated and dressed in character, the kids had to work on a speech and a presentation for the entire class of 32 kids…the early birds and the late birds.  Mya was really excited about the project! She decided that the bear would be an astronaut.  The bear was appropriately dressed in shiny astronaut gear with a little help from me and  daddy was in charge of working on the speech with Mya which had to included the following:

My name is…

My age is…

My birthday is…

My address is …

My phone number is…

Today, I am sharing my bear.  She’s an astronaut.  She likes space just like me.  She likes planets, suns moons and stars and her name is Luna.  Thank you!

After almost two weeks of practice every day, Mya was the first to go and with a smile on her face and zero fear…she aced the presentation.  The kids were also allowed to ask questions about her bear and she was able to pick 3 friends to answer questions from.  They were mostly comments about how cute her bear was…lol…but we loved how everyone participated.  We are so proud of her!!!!  She definitely set a good example for the rest of the class.  No stuttering, no mess-ups, no slip-ups!  Way to go, Mya!!!

January 27, 2011 - 8:44 pm Titi Brandi - I can only imagine the face she has everyday after school. I didn't realize until Michelle said Vanessa will be in kinder in a few months...then it came to me. That means Avery is too. That really freaked me out, so I'm excited to know what it feels like. Mya, you look beautiful and you're a ray of sunshine!

February 15, 2011 - 9:32 pm Jessica - What a brave girl! Keep up the good work Mya. Getting up in front of people to speak or perform isn't always easy but you made it look like a piece of cake :)


Me and my baby girl!  It seems as if she’s been here forever because we honestly cannot remember how life was before the little miss… and to think it was only five years ago.  Soon, we will be saying the same thing about our new little girl…

…what can I say?  We’re truly blessed! :)

January 24, 2011 - 9:43 pm Jessica - You having a girl!? Yippee!

January 20, 2011 - 12:44 am Patty Aska aka "Yay-Yay" - Where's your head?

January 20, 2011 - 11:51 pm Navy Sou - My head? In the clouds. :P

February 12, 2011 - 4:00 pm Terra - Way to go Paula!



We had Jordyn over this past weekend.  It was her first time sleeping over and they had a blast!  Here’s a picture I snapped that I have to post just because I love the expression on her face!  It’s comical!


Happy Birthday to my wonderful friend and beautiful mama of two….

February 12, 2011 - 4:02 pm Terra - Awww, u're too kind! Thank you <3 u bunches!!!


Last week, my cousin Paula and I were able to go out to take our maternity pictures.  Paula is also expecting and we are only three weeks apart.  I love having someone to be pregnant with.  It makes our pregnancies even more special!  Here’s a sneak peak of her session…

January 21, 2011 - 4:38 pm Titi Brandi - OMG, I didn't know Paula was pregnant too. I feel bad, I didn't even tell her congrats at Mya's birthday party. I'm so happy you have someone to be pregnant with again. The first one you had was 13 days apart from Mya, and she has a cousin, and now you have some one else that will be a cousin to your next little one too. That's so cool!

February 12, 2011 - 4:04 pm Terra - Paula!!! U're soo freakin gorgeous preggers!


Sunrises are just as beautiful as sunsets especially if  you are able to catch it on a days like this.  This was shot out of my bedroom window around 7am and it literally only lasted a few minutes because I looked out the window again not a moment later and the skyline had changed completely.  {This image was SOOC (straight out of the camera) meaning there were no edits done to it except for resizing and sharpening}


Happy Birthday to my mother who would’ve been 52 today.  I miss her soooo much!  Here’s a picture of her with me when I was a big headed lil’ baby…
