52 Week Challenge #1

Forever In Blue Jeans

I didn't have a more recent photo that I wanted to post more than this one, right now. This is 5 1/2 years ago. Robbie was leaving for college and we all went out to dinner the night before. We went to Taco Surf and Whit, Rob and Tay's dad (my ex-husband) went with us. We are so blessed to have such a wonderful relationship with him. It's very unique and the three of us (Brad, myself & Whit) really enjoy raising the boys together. God truly has helped us through so many experiences.
I am posting the 1st of my 52 Week Challenge. The picture has to have me in it. I will post one picture, a week, on Thursdays (oops! got a late start), of myself with one of my family members, it should be fun to look back on at the end of the year.

Favorite Things Friday- Sleeping in and Snuggling

I love to sleep in, the kids have a chance to catch one of us still in bed when we don't get up early. They always climb in and snuggle up. I loved the look of this and only wished we had more time so I could get back into bed with them. What a wonderful way to start the day.

Fat lip from basketball practice (it got much bigger)

If you can see this, my oldest, Robbie, at age 16 (looking age 12) and now at age 24, What a difference!!

Happy Birthday to Me! (ha ha) Feb. 13, 2009

Brad, Mom-in-law, Taylor, Brady, Ashley, Robbie, Jake, Me, and Mom.

My best gifts, by far, are the cards I receive from my children!

Brady, my mother-in law (Penny), me, and my mother (Giovanna).

I am 44 years old today!

My birthday!
Brad and I got to go to the movies, all day long, while the kids were at school. We saw "International" and "Taken". They both were good, but we both kind of like "Taken" better. We had lunch together, then came home to the kids and Mom. It then was present -time!! I got a beautiful silver necklace, two books, gorgeous roses, a basket of lotions, and a couple of gift certificates. Boy, was I spoiled.
Each year, my birthdays get better.

Favorite Things Friday

My hobbies are scrpbooking and talking! I just love when I get to do both. My Favorite thing this week is to scrapbook with Vikki and talk up a storm. This store is in Fountain Valley and it has beautiful products. They always have awesome projects on display and plenty of new and fresh ideas. It rained outside, but it was sunny where we were!

When I'm Not Feeling "Just Right"

At night on the Isthmus of Catalina

Our view from our campsite. And, two of my beautiful kids and my HOT husband!

Time to go exploring in an ocean cave!

When I feel dissatisfied/funny/not settled/anxious it is nice to post a blog and a picture. It makes me feel okay, that's all.
