It's official...

We officially booked our tickets for Colorado today. We go March 9th to the 14th. We are so excited!!!

And we are officially moving! I am so happy. Here is a picture of the house. It's a two story but from the front of the house it looks like a one. I'll have more pictures to come. It's in Trinity Oaks which is up 281 just past Stone Oak.

Last but not least I am officially in need of about 4 more hours each day. I am exhausted. I have a lot on my plate right now but I love it. As I've mentioned before I am on the board of the PTA, I'm Preston's room mom, I taught his CCD class at church, I am the coordinator for the Kindergarten play that they are having in April and tonight I volunteered to be the team mom for his baseball team (so excited that he started baseball). If I'm this busy now I can't imagine how it's going to be when the girls get in school. Like I said, I love being busy and involved but I sure am tired tonight. That being said I am going to bed. Good night.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Belated Valentine's Day Everyone! We had a nice night. Troy had to work during the day
but at night we headed over to Silvia and Rick's (they were going to come over to our house until they found out we don't have a grill. We always cook our steaks in the oven, and I've never given it much thought because they taste good, but they laughed at the idea so we went over there). We had so much yummy food: steak, lobster, this special salad I make, vegetables, mashed potatoes, chocolate covered strawberries, and sparkling grape juice for the expecting. :) Here are some pictures:

Well, we've had a house full of sick kiddos the last week and a half. Preston was home from school for a whole week with the flu. Poor baby. Then Belle started to get warm and I thought she was going to get it but to my relief it was just a fever. We had our 6 year anniversary this past weekend which I'm still in shock over; can't believe we've been married 6 years! Monday night I went to the rodeo with my cousin and saw my absolute most favorite singer in the world, Reba, (go ahead and think I'm a dork - my friends have already said so) and then last night Troy and I went with our good friends Tana and Jarrod and another friend Priscilla & Rick to see Switchfoot. We really didn't know who they were but thought it would be fun to go. We were right - we had a blast. Saturday is Valentines day and being that my mom is a newlywed we don't have a sitter so we decided to make it a family event and have a family dinner and make cookies and a Valentines craft. We invited "Aunt" Silvia and Rick and Nathan so they are coming too. I bought cookie dough and heart shaped cookie cutters and the kids look at that dough every day and ask if it's Valentines day yet. If you can't tell cookies are a big hit in our house. We are also booking our tickets to Colorado today. We are going over Spring Break. First we are going camping for 2 nights with Tana and Jarrod and then the day we get back we are going to leave for Colorado. I've been dying to go somewhere because last year we didn't travel at all. Yipee.

That's it for now. :)

Pictures from Grace's Birthday (1-12-09)

Birthday girl

Happy Birthday sweet girl - her cake was supposed to match her elmo theme.

The Verdicts in :

Here are a few pictures from Saturday night when I had my girlfriends over. There's also a cute video of Bella putting on a concert with her ponies. She LOVES my little pony and has almost every one of them.

Preston started to feel sick yesterday - he was very warm, had a headache, stuffy nose, stomach ace. I sent him to school today but wrote a note to his teacher and told her he didn't feel well and might need to go the nurse. Sure enough 30 minutes after I dropped him off the nurse called and said he had a fever of 101 and he needed to come home. So I went and got him and took him to the doctor and the verdicts in: he has the flue. The doctor said he needed to be home a whole week! I was surprised it lasted that long. I'll keep you posted - I'm just praying the girls don't get sick.
