I'm still here...

Thanks for remembering me and asking if I'm ok since I haven't blogged in 2 weeks! Yikes! So sorry I haven't been checking in once in a while.

I have been busy dealing with family drama {well it's actually lasted for the past 7 1/2 years} and it is FINALLY all sorted out. YAY!!! What a huge relief! Every time a new issue comes up it gets so stressful for me & I don't want to even think about getting on the computer. I'm so HAPPY that things are BETTER now! WOOHOOO!!! Now we can all get on with our lives and enjoy each other. I know none of you know what I'm talking about & I'm not going into details, so please just be happy for me & my family. Thanks ☺

I know this is *old* news but thanks for all the complements on my kids' valentine cards. They loved them & were so excited to pass them out to their friends at school. I told them that next year they're making their own because that's a big part of the fun & I thought maybe they were missing out on that part. Oh my gosh! You would've thought I was telling them I was never giving them candy EVER! HAHAHA They said "NO!!! Mom we LOVED them & so did our friends! They kept saying 'Oh Cool! I want one!' So see Mom you have to make them again next year!" They're so funny & sweet. How could I possibly say NO to that? I'm a huge sap for my kids' gushy love. Of course I'll help them again next year since they put it that way.

Oh and Look what my hubby brought home on Valentine's Day (he had to work all day).

Isn't he the sweetest? Well I think so! They're beautiful Chrysanthemums and they're still alive! WOOHOOO!!

Check out my little guy who suddenly decided he wants to wear a tie to church. It's a little long and a clip-on but he loves it!

A couple weeks ago, guess it was Valentine's weekend (on Sunday) all my family came over for dinner, then we all played a little Rock Band. My Dad is so funny because he was really looking forward to jammin' on the guitar! I even got Christy to try it out! WOOHOO!!!
That was a FUN evening!!

Nathaniel got really silly and gave himself a mustache. You're lookin' at the next Rico Suave! LOL
Yesterday my Mom called to ask if we wanted to go to dinner at Native New Yorker with them because she had some discount certificates. The only catch was that we had to go to a particular location - all the way to Phoenix (it took us about 45 minutes to get there in traffic). Not a big deal because she heard that we should be able to get appetizers half off and the kids eat free if adults order entrees. There weren't very many people there, actually it was kind of quiet there. But the waitress didn't take our order until happy hour was already over. Ok fine, guess we didn't really need appetizers. So we get our drinks and finally order some dinner (we had already been there half hour & that's how we missed happy hour). It took forever to get our food - we had already been there an hour. Somehow, I got my side salad before anyone. Then the kids' dinners were ready before my Mom's Salad. The kids were almost done eating by the time our food finally arrived. Anyway, it was a huge disappointment and the food wasn't that great. It was a fun adventure though. And THANKS MOM & DAD for including us and trying to have a good evening. We can laugh about it now that my stomach isn't aching from eating so late at night. HAHAHA

I had Art Masterpiece again today. I am really enjoying visiting the kids' classes and being part of their day every 2 weeks. A BIG THANKS to my Mom who has been watching Anson during my presentations (and sometimes longer because Anson doesn't want to stop playing with Grandma)!

Ooooh I had this new season of LOST on my DVR and hadn't watched any yet. So earlier this week, Felicia stayed home from school Monday & Tuesday for upset stomach, and we watched all the new episodes together, well most of them together. She had to go to bed so I continued to watch til I saw them all. I LOVE this show!!! I haven't watched last night's episode yet and I'm dying to see it!!! Probably won't get to it til this weekend though. I have the hardest time waiting for new episodes, that's why I had waited to watch them all at once last summer. I saw the whole last season in a couple days online. I almost wish I waited so I could do that again because now I have to wait each week like everyone else. LOL

Ok that's enough rambling from me today. Guess that's what happens when I don't post for 2 whole weeks! In case I don't update again for a few days - HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!!

We have the school carnival this weekend! The kids are so excited!
