Max: K, Jimmy: 5 th, Alex: 6 th!

Alex is really turning into quite the pre-teen. Jimmy is getting so tall. Max looks like such a big boy!

During the picture taking process, they found a little Leopard Gecko. Isn't it cute?

Its just Katie Grace and Moses home with me now! My house really is so quiet!

Summer already!

I can't believe it has been 6 months since the blog updates. I have been using facebook for daily updates, as it is a much easier form of communication, but as my Mom pointed out today, there are some people who still don't have facebook pages yet. Come on now Ma, even Claudia my Mother-inlaw has one! But, since I am laid up today with a back spasm from moving boxes. I'll indulge!

So for those unfacebookers, here are some quick updates.

Katie Grace has her dance recital this weekend, dress rehearsal on Sat. program on Sun. She is doing "Prancing poodle" and "splish splash". I will post pictures (sooner or later) after. She has overcome her fear of "drown-in" in the pool, and now floats in her floatie everywhere "by herselfS"!

Max finished up his first year of T-ball (Wee-ball, as they call it here). He loved it, my super competitive boy! He looked so cute in his uniform! They will have the same team next year. And he can't wait to play Soccer this fall! Yay! Go Max!

Jimmy is enjoying all of the weird (and HUGE) LA bugs, and is growing cantaloupes in his garden. The pumpkin that he and Alex grew is about 120lbs!!! Too bad that it won't last till Halloween!

Alex tried out, and made the Division 1 U12 Girls Calcasieu Parish Competitive Soccer team, along with her 2 best friends from her old team (I call them the "Goonies"). Exactly where we were hoping that she would be. She is very excited about playing, and this next year should be awesome for her and her team!

It's been a pretty chill and relaxing Summer since we have gotten home from our trip up to MA. Pooling, relaxing, playing, cooking, lovin life :)

I am in the process of starting up my Business again (have already been in contact with a local shop to sell my products). And have people already lined up to try out the new lines that I am coming up with!

There ya have it. That's the scoop. :) Hopefully it won't be another 6 months before I update again!

Christmas Pictures 2008

It takes a great amount of effort to get everyone all clean, dressed, kept clean, all together, smiling and looking in the right direction.
Here is a slideshow of this years attempts. I think we did pretty well this year. I love the pictures of Katie Grace and Daddy, and the ones of Katie Grace and Max in front of the door. Hope everyone is doing well. I'll update more later. For now enjoy the show!

Yup! Bright and early this morning I woke to Katie Grace shaking me:

KG "Momma its Kissmass!"
Me "No baby its not Christmas yet, go back to bed,"
KG "Nooooo Momma its KISSMASS!"
Me "Honey, its 5:30, its not time to get up yet, go back to bed."
KG "Noooooo Momma!!! ITS KISSMASS! You know that white stuff?"
Me "Snow?"
KG "Yeah its raining snow!"

At this point Jim comes in to alert me to the fact that yes it was indeed snowing. He had already taken pictures and made little snowmen on the patio table.

He had to wake the kids up, so at 6am this morning my children were outside with socks on their hands (because all the snow gear is packed up)making snowmen in the front yard. They had to show their Louisiana friends how we kick it New England style!
