Happy Birthday!

Dear Wally,

Happy 2nd Birthday! I am glad you are my best friend and I hope you like the pictures.




I found this video clip while I was "blog surfing" today. If you have time, please watch it. It is so good. Just make sure you have the box of Kleenex available.

Make sure you pause my music on the side, so you can hear the clip.

P.S. I love you Dusty!

Prayers for our Firefighters

It is with a heavy heart that the Houston Fire Department has to report the loss of two of its own. On the morning of April 12, 2009, the Houston Fire Department was dispatched to a house fire just after midnight in the 7800 block of Oak Vista in southeast Houston. Firefighters quickly called for defensive attack on the fire and sadly Captain James Harlow and Probationary Firefighter Damien Hobbs of Station 26 succumbed to the fire. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

Captain James Harlow, 50, was hired by the HFD in August 1979 and has been a Captain at Fire Station 26 since 2004.
Probationary Firefighter Damien Hobbs, 29, graduated from the HFD Val Jahnke Training Facility on March 3, 2009, with Class 2008C, and began his first assignment at Fire Station 26 on March 7.

Happy Easter

Since Dusty had to work Sunday, we celebrated Easter on Friday with my side of the family. I was able to take off today from work and relax with the kids. I just love spending time with my kids, because they are so funny!!!! We are dying eggs today and Jake said this is the BEST day of his entire LIFE!!!!! He is such a HAPPY kid!
Here are a TON of pics from our Easter celebration.

Caroline loved looking for Easter Eggs

Caroline was so funny to watch when she slid down the slide. These two pictures do not do justice!!!

Caroline loves wearing her bumble bee rain boots. I think they are super cute! I could not decide which picture I liked better.

And here she is trying to figure out how to drive the golf cart...

The joy of confetti eggs...

Some FUN games we played...

The wheelbarrow

Carry the Egg with a spoon

Here we are sitting and waiting for the boys to crack the confetti eggs on our heads...

Jake & Xain raced each other...

This GUY won...

Happy Easter!

A moment to BRAG about Myself....
Last Friday I accepted the invitation to be a part of Gamma Beta Phi. Gamma Beta Phi is an honor society that focuses on service for the community. I am super excited to be a part of this organization because it is hard work to be a mom of 3, secretary and wife to my hard working husband, work part-time, be in school full-time and maintain a 3.8 grade point average.

I am such a nerd.

Redneck Girl

Our Redneck Girl has learned to fold her arms and these days she really likes chocolate icing straight out of the container, wearing just a diaper, and her brother's boots (one of each).
