The 4th pics

Here are some pics from our trip to San Antonio to spend some time with Mark's parents. We taught Park how to ski, Cole loved tubing and decided he wanted to try skiing after watching his brother. There are two different pics of him one before the boat started and one after. Needless to say, after he fell he left the skiing to his brother! The other pictures are of the boys feeding the deer that come up to Mark's parents porch all day long! Seriously, Mark and I got up early one morning to hit the lake for a morning ski, and there was a deer with her nose pressed against the back door just waiting for her morning corn. We took the boys to see fireworks in the parking lot across from six flags (pretty weak show), but the kids liked it and it got us home not far from bed time. As usual, we came home with a better tan, and worn out from all the activity! Hopefully, I will up-date before Park's first day of Kindergarten, but not likely! HA

So I realize I have been MIA for a while. At some point in the last few months the only thing I want to do after the kids are in bed is go to bed myself! Therefore, my blog page has since suffered! Alot has happened since Snow Day! The most interesting thing would be our family trip to Puerto Rico over spring break. It was so much fun and absolutly beautiful. So here are a few pics of our trip. I promise I will do better about keeping up with this page.

I got tagged.....

10 years ago:
I was ending my freshman year in college and Mark was trying to win my heart!

Things on my to-do list today:
-Work out (The hardest class ever)
-Really need to mop while cole is napping
-Parker has baseball practice
-Get boys stuff layed out for school and get them in bed

What would I do if I suddenly became a Billionaire:
I would write a check for 6 million to The Village :). Give away to other ministries. Buy Mark a truck and a fishing boat. Buy two vacation homes, one on the beach and one in the mountains! Go on a great shopping trip with some girl friends (my treat)! The rest would probably have to go to taxes!

Three of my bad habits:
-Diet Dr. Pepper
-Leaving all the lights on in the house
-Running late!!!

Five jobs I have had:
-Lifeguard at a waterpark where I had at least three rescuse a day!
-Counselor at CrossCamp. Where Mark and I met so this was my favorite job!
-Waited tables at Landry's seafood house, and Willie's Ice House in Houston.
-Worked at Pei Wei's
-Was a personal trainer at the YMCA

Five things people don't know about me:
-I hate putting laundry away, so it stays in one of the 4 baskets I have till I have to do laundry again and need it.
-I NEVER put new toilet paper back on the role! I set it on the floor till Mark does.
-I peed in my bed when I was pregnant with Parker and had to wake Mark up in the middle of the night so I could change the sheets.
-When I am home by myself at night I sleep with most of the lights on.
-I have a black dot in my eye.

Valentines Day!

So I am sure that Valentine's Day for some of ya'll is a wonderful romantic day, I felt the same til I had kids in school! I have now become the Valentine's Day scrooge. This is due to the fact that I have to spend the night before Valentine's Day writing out 35 different Valentines for kids that cannot even read what they say, and unless there is candy involved they want nothing to do with it! The other fun thing is going to Target that same night and fighting the 1,000's of people (mainly men) buying last minute gifts for their wives so they can check it off their list. Now I am sure that there are some guys who truly love buying flowers and cards for their wife, but lets face it, for most men it is a last minute stop so they will not miss out on the "romance" of Valentine's night!:) On returning home from this wonderful trip I told my husband to please never be one of those men! I did get to enjoy a wonderful dinner with Mark and some friends that helped me recover from the day. So in conclusion, yes I was bitter, but I have recovered for now until next year when Parker is in kindergarten and I actually have to attend a party!

Clubhouse or Disaster

Parker and Cole have quickly discovered that the best time to do something that probably isn't the best idea is while I am nursing Ryder! The other morning I was sitting on the couch feeding Ryder and the boys went back to their room(so I thought) was pretty quiet so I asked what they were doing. Parker told me they were "building a clubhouse". So I thought, no big deal it is keeping them busy. However, to my suprise, their idea of a cluhouse in Ryder's room was my idea of a disaster. :) If you click on the picture you can get a better idea of their "good time."
