What beautiful weather! the weather has been so beautiful lately!  I'm so ready for winter to be over and for spring and summer to be here!  I miss wearing my tank tops and flip flops.  However, since the weather has been so nice that means the snow that we've had is starting to melt and it's turning our dirt road into one big mess.  Mud wrestling anyone???  Marcos and Jerome tried their best to control the mud situation at our house by plowing the road with the four wheeler. 

We signed Jerome up for T-ball again this year and I think he's going to do 100% better this year.  He has really improved his social skills since he started pre-k and he's finally grown out of his shyness.  He's very excited to do tball and he told me "I'm going to run so fast they'll never catch me" I love my little man to pieces! 

We're working on the potty training thing again with Lexi, I have never known another little girl as stubborn as her.  She was fully potty trained at 2 but she decided that "she was a baby and needed diapers" and so she refuesed to use the big girl potty.  This girl is going to be the death of me, lol.  I'm scared for her teachers when she starts school and I'm afraid the principal and I are going to on a first name basis.  :)  I have to admit that she gets her stubberness from me but she has the smile of an Angel and knows how to melt my heart.

We think about it, sing about it, dream about it and lose sleep worrying about it.
When we don't know we have it, we search for it.
When we discover it, we don't know what to do with it.
When we have it, we fear loosing it.
It is the constant source of pleasure and pain.
We don't know which it will be from one moment to the next.
 It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and IMPOSSIBLE to live without!!!!

Happy Valentines Day!

Under the Sea

Yesterday the family attended a baby shower for my husband's cousin who is having her first baby.  Since the shower was co-ed that meant it was my hubby's first time experiencing one.  From the minute we stepped foot into the room we were in awe.  The theme of the shower was "Under the Sea" and the decorations were so breath-taking beautiful!  Every little detail was planned out from the many different choices of food to the zillions of desserts to even the take home thank you gifts from the mom to be.  Needless to say the hubby and I left the shower feeling about 10lbs heavier and with a new party coordinator in mind.

Saturday night the hubby and I had a much needed date night, just the two of us.  We went to my favorite restaurant, Tomasitas where we had swirls, chips and guacamole and a very yummy dinner.  It's hard finding babysitters for both of the kids and even though it was only for a few hours I enjoyed every precious minute with my handsome husband. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Valentines tomorrow!

Sick again

My poor little Lexi Pooh has been suffering with an awful stomach bug since yesterday.  She hasn't been able to keep anything solid down.  It breaks my heart when my kids are sick and I wish I had a magic wand that I could wave to make them all better.  I hope my Jerome doesn't catch it but I'm sure it's inevitable. 

As for the weather it's snowing, again.  I'm ready for spring and summer; I miss my flip flops and tank tops.  These poor kids have been couped up inside and we're running out of ideas to entertain them.  I hope everyone is staying nice and warm. :)

Dinner photos

I love love love taking photos and while I was making dinner tonight I couldn't help but notice how beautiful our food looked.  I believe that presentation is everything and if it looks good it most definitely will taste good! 

I will be taking a photography class in the summer and I can't even begin to describe just how excited I am!
I have such a wonderful camera but I know that I'm not using it to it's full potential.  I have been asked numerous times to take family portraits as well as wedding portraits but I haven't gotten the courage yet to try.  I don't feel like I'm nearly anywhere close to that potential, yet!
