Ash Wednesday

So today is the day that us devote Catholics give up something for the next 40days(hahaha) ....sacrifice. I have choosen to give up tea and sodas. Now I don't drink sodas too often but I gave them up so that I will not be tempted to drink them instead of the tea. See other then water and alcholic beverages I really only drink sweet tea!!!! I LOVE it!!! SO with that being of luck to each and every Catholic out there....I know you can stay strong!!!!

Til Next time.............

It's been awhile.............

I can't believe it's been so long since I've written. We had a wonderful holiday season and now we are anticipating the summer!!!!
We are going to a wedding this weekend which will be out 3rd one in 2009...guess this is the year of love =)
Avery is learing how to write more letters. She can write her name, her daddy and mommy's name and most of the alphabet (mind you she is only 3)!!! I am looking around for somewhere to put her in dance....she's really into dancing and singing lately.
Avery received a barbie pink mustang from Santa and a bicycle...she has been loving both of them! Jason and I are starting to think about looking for a house....I know it's scary right now with the economy but the upside is there is a tax break that we can take advantage we will see!!!
Work has been a little crazy but can't complaint...atleast I have a job!!!

Out of the mouth

Last night at the grocery store there was a little person in front of me. Not really thinking anything I pulled my cart up next to me and Avery said "Momma, why her not growed up?" yes it was loud and clear and the women turn around. I tried to explain that people are all different sizes and that sometimes people are shorter or taller. Avery comes back with "But she's a mommy not a kid" I explained that God just makes people different. How amazing was that, that she new by looking at that women that she was not a child.....I wasn't embarressed, I was happy that she asked and it wasn't in a mean way. The women watched me shoftly as Avery and I spoke and then she smiled at me....almost like What a mom!

We took Avery skating for the first time last Sunday and she had quit a time! We also went to the pumpkin patch. We are looking forward to Halloween and hosting our family and friends.

Trick or Treat

Til next time...............

Is this really happening.............

My father was injured in a motorcycle accident this past saturday night. I don't think you are ever prepared for the telephone call that one of your parents is sick or has been injured.
I'm mad, I'm mad because the media isn't telling the whole truth, I made because my father could most accounts should have died.
God........God is what kept my father here and God took the other man.

The other man had been running around (drunk) for over 30 minutes on I-10...that's right the highway. They say he was trying to catch a dog, but the police report states his was intoxicated. What person puts others human lives in danger for an animal, he could have and almost did cause numerous wrecks. I feel awful for his family and for him losing his life, but he could have taken others as well. It's like drinking and's the other lives you put in danger. Same here no one in the media had said anything about what about the motorcyclist...... his life.

By the grace of God my dad never even layed his bike down...he say's someone else was driving that bike that night. After 8 hours of surgery .....only his arm is out of commission. It will be about 6 months before his arm is a hundred percent.....but he'll be fighting this forever. Although there was NOTHING he did wrong....he feels the guilt. Like we all would.

I pray him daily and for the other family. I pray for him to know that he's still the most amazing man in my life and always will be....that he survived it a miracle and blessing and God made that choice....not us.

My and always will be.

Summer's almost over!

Hello everyone! Again sorry I haven't written in about 2 months!!! Let's see.... we went to hilltop for July 4th which was fun, not that same as normal because our house wasn't on the lake!

Kasie had little Kenzie on July 18th...she's beautiful, with a head full of hair! She's so small and pretty...I can't believe she's here already!!!!

Avery turned 3 on August 18th!!!! My how time flies. It seems like yesterday I was holding her tiny self in my arms thinking that I had finally experianced a Miracle!!!! She's been such an amazing child and the best part of my life. It's hard to see her become so independant and not need me as much!
We had a luau party for her, it was a blast......with a water slide which she loved.

I will turn 25 on sunday the 24th and we are having an 80's party the following weekend to celebrate! I'm so excited.......

I hope everyone is ready for the fall and school and everything else that comes with the end of Summer!!!!! I know we are sad to see if go, but it was a good one!!!

Til next time...........

My Dad just turned 50 yesterday and we are having a party this saturday. My little sister graduated high school earlier this month... can't believe it!!!

We have been enjoying summer time so far! We've done some swimming which Avery loves. We've spent a lot of time with our families....which Avery also enjoys because she gets to play with all her cousins!!!!

I signed up to run a 1/2 marathon in November and I'm slowly starting to train for that! Jason has been playing golf often which I like too because I get some alone time, hehehe!!!

We are looking forward to our annual Hilltop trip, we take for 4th of July! It's always a good time. We're on the boat, playing catch phrase, and drinking...we go with the Falcos!
