Easter Weekend

We had a great time visiting family in Austin this past Easter weekend. We had Birthday parties, picnics, bbq's, egg hunting and lots and lots of "cascarones" It was also Cristian's first experience with colored boiled eggs. Remember, his daddy is a chef so we never had boiled eggs for Easter. The risk of food poisoning is too high. Well, our sweet and active 4 year old was crushing the "cascarones" (confetti eggs) then throwing them at everyone and anyone who was near by. Then, he reached for an egg that felt like a confetti egg....then proceeded to crush it and throw it. OUCH!! I got hit about three times with crushed boiled eggs!

Hope you had a great time making wonderful memories!!! I know I'll cherish this one for a long time!

Love ya,

I have been dealing with the possibility that we may move from Corpus Christi. I do not like to move. I have moved all my life. I had hoped that finally I would be able to plant roots. Then, as I was absorbed in my own unwillingness to change and move, the rug was pulled from under me. My brother and sister in Christ are in pain and I hurt with them. God will pull my brother ands sister in Christ and everyone who loves them out of this. For He works in miraculous ways, at the moment we can not see it, but we need to hold on with all our might to God's amazing Grace for He knows what is in store for all of us.

I must now surrender once again to His will not not mine.

Many Blessings.

Happy New Year!

I spent the New Year with my family in Austin. It was really nice. I came back renewed and happy. We stayed an extra two days and it was so much more relaxing than our usual weekend stay. It was long enough, I am glad to be back home.
Hope everyone had a great time welcoming the New Year!
Love ya, all

I love Autum

I love the changing of the leaves, the cooler weather, pumpkin pie and sweet hot tea.
What I do not like is the stomach flu and other little bugs that come along with the season. Yeap, all my boys got it. One after the other. The cleaning up is yuckie, and the smell... But the worse is watching my babies in pain and I can't give them anything or do anything to make it better. Thank God, it only last about 24hrs (times three of course). Now, they are all better and I am exhausted! So, I seep my tea and enjoy the cool weather for a little while, while the boys are at practice and Cristian plays in the backyard. Emphasis on little, the dogs are now barking and Cristian is trying to get my attention.
Stay healthy,

Rush, Rush, Rush

What a weekend! we rushed to get there, we rushed while we were there, then we rushed to get back! I spent Saturday afternoon and Friday all day trying to keep the boys clean, and quiet. That is very hard for a 10,7,&3 yr old boys to do. I was licked, kicked, bittten, stepped on, and dirt kicked on my all black shoes and skirt. All by my three year old! But I am glad I went. And I am really glad that I am Back HOME!
Love ya'll

When it rains it pours!

Our families will be traveling this weekend to AUSTIN for two funerals. One sudden, on John's side. He contracted an infection in Galveston while working after Hurricane Ike. On my side, my great-grand Aunt passed away after several months on hospice. I am torn between honoring my husband and honoring my dad. Pray for all of us!
Love ya'll

I love my JOB!

About a year ago, I studied with Alene and other lovely ladies, Pathway to Purpose for women by Katie Brazelton. Great study. Back then, I found out that my purpose for this time in my life was to care for my husband and my three very active boys. Well, needless to say I was not all that excited about it. Now, after my recent experience, I can honestly say, “I love my Job!!” I am where I am supposed to be! I have found a refreshed purpose. I feel cleansed and renewed. I guess I needed a good scrubbing! I hope that I continue to feel this way for a long, long time.

Love ya!
