What a wonderful LONG weekend!

What a busy wonderful weekend! I've been off from work since Thursday and have spent the entire weekend with my family. I am so incredibly blessed that my kids chose ME to be their mama! I simply cannot imagine my life without them and even though it took five long years to get pregnant with my first born it was worth every second, minute and multiple tears I cried longing for a baby to hold in my arms!

We took the kids on Thursday to see: Shrek-The Final Chapter, and it was really good; the whole family enjoyed it. This was Lexi's first movie and even though I was skeptical about how she would do she really amazed me and did wonderful! Sure, she moved around a bit but for the most part she watched the entire movie! I'm so thrilled that we can start going to the movies more often as a family now!

Friday we ran errands around town - you know the usual, restocking toiletries, cleaning supplies and snacks for the kids. After running around we called it an early night and ordered Dear John on PPV.

We took the kids fishing on Saturday and Jerome caught a fish, his very first! I am so sad that I forgot my camera, I could have kicked myself! I really hope that my kids take after mine and Marcos' love for fishing! I remember going fishing every single day after work before having kids, there is something about listening to the roar of the river that can really relax me.

We spent Sunday with my extended family having a BBQ and being grateful for the brave men and woman who have served and continue to serve our wonderful county. I am forever thankful to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice with their lives, may God Bless you and your families. The kids had such a blast playing with their second and third cousins. It's so nice to finally be able to sit down and relax and not have to chase our kids everywhere (or have them glued to our legs the entire time!) I've come to the conclusion that our kids can provide hours of entertainment!

The kids have been loving this weather and would play outside all day if we let them! However, after today we're going to have to be extra careful where they play as Marcos killed a rattlesnake this morning! He was outside getting ready to clean the dogs kennels when he saw the snake slithering by him and towards where the kids were playing. Luckily, he had a metal pipe by him and he was able to grab it and pin the snake down so he could chop the head off - all while it was hissing and trying to bite him. Now, I know we live in the dessert area of New Mexico but in the entire 9 years we have lived here we have never seen a snake in our land! Pretty scary stuff! Thank goodness I'm married to a part time snake wrangler, LOL!

I hope every one's weekend was just as lovely as ours! Take care!

Not me Monday!!!

Had a wonderful day yesterday, gave Lexi a small birthday BBQ with just our immediate family. I ate just enough that I was satisfied and didn't eat so much that my stomach screamed to stop because never in a million years would I stuff myself silly, don't you know I have self control!? I didn't let my kids have any coke for the BBQ when they asked me because what kind of mom would I be if I gave them coke when I know it rots their teeth!? All in all it was a great way to spend Sunday with my family!

This morning I woke up on time and bright and early for work because I am an exempt employee and would never dream of being late! During my lunch hour I ran my whole mile without stopping and I didn't sound like a pig who is struggling for air, because didn't you know I'm an outstanding athlete and running is like second nature to me???

Today is my Lexi Pooh's actual birthday and I didn't come straight home to make her some special birthday cupcakes because what mother would give their children even more sweets to rotten their teeth...certainly not me!!!

This post is for my BFF who is always so clever in writing her "Not me Monday" blogs, I hope I made mine just as interesting as yours!

My children normal? Yeah right!

Why can't I have children who smile normal? The moment I break out my camera they get these crazy psycho smiles and it makes them look like they are pain. I tell you only my children....

I have more to add, I'll upload them later today.
