Today I...

Ran. I think my body has gone into shock!




Even if it was for only 5.5 seconds. Ahhh, I feel 40 lbs light already and a little sore.

Tea Party

Yesterday I was busy getting things done around the house and Kendie called me into her room to tell me that I was invited to a tea party. So I told her she needed to get dressed up for her party.




She said she needed to put on her dirndl socks on. These are the socks we wear when we go to Wurstfest. Her Daddy would be so proud.:) She also informed me that I needed to drink my tea with my pinky up and we had to call each other darling, this is from Fancy Nancy. Oh this kid what am I going to do with her?

Tomatillo Sauce

This salsa is so good! We had this over the weekend, my friend Tammy made it. It's good with chips but I'm thinking over grilled chicken breast...yummy!


15 tomatillos…. Husks removed, rinsed.

½ yellow onion

½ poblano pepper, seeded

1 tsp. Adobo seasoning

1 tsp Chili powder

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp lemon pepper

1 tsp cumin

1 large bunch cilantro, stems removed

Juice from 3 -4 big limes

½ tsp fresh garlic

Dash ground pepper

2-3 stems fresh oregano



-Sometimes I add more cilantro and lime juice but it’s fine as is. Add a jalepeno if you like it spicier. Process all in food processor and stick in fridge.

It was a good weekend

This weekend was a busy one for us! But it was so much fun! Filled with family, friends and swimming.





Our little piece of 10 X 10 heaven that my husband has been working so hard on.





Some of our wonderful friends and family. Sorry the picture is a little blurry.





Some of the wild children that were there.



Busted out the glow sticks for the kiddos. They were a hit!





My friend Jennifer, getting the latest Jon and Kate gossip.


This is what we did almost all afternoon on Sunday.




I saw this when I was leaving my parents. I thought that it might spoil our evening plans but it went around us




Than off to another party.










Ken and her little friend Hudson. She loves that they have a shower outside.


I was glad to see today. We went to the park with our friends this morning and now I think these Goebel girls are going to take a nap.

Is it Summer yet?

Man, these last couple of weeks have been CRAZY! I have been working on orders for Graduations. I am almost as busy now as I was at Christmas!


One of my best friends came home this week. So we had a fun couple of days. She left this morning to go to Iraq. Oh, I'm crying just thinking about my Betty so far away. She is a nurse in Washington D.C. so I'm use to not seeing her but not talking to her is going to be hard. She will be in Iraq for 6 months. Keep her in your prayers. Of course she assures me she will be okay. Her boyfriend is there right now and he is charge of security for the convoy's so say a prayer for Sam too.





And today we will be having a party, a pretty big party. And it's raining now. We need the rain BAD but maybe it can hold off till tomorrow? Cause I have 11 rowdy kids coming over and I have a pretty darn clean house.

Hope everyone has a great and safe weekend!

Favorite Friday



Did you know that you can make your blog into a book? Here you can get your whole years worth of post into a book!

I know some of you don't scrapbook. I have all the stuff on a shelf but I just don't have the time. Oh, who am I kidding I just don't want to pull all that stuff out and do it. So this makes a perfect solution!

Spring Loves....




Dang, it is hot here! It's not suppose to be this hot in May. Spring is probably my most favorite season. Here are my Spring Loves...

The first warm day after a cold or slightly chilly winter for us Texans.

Going to Schultz nursery in Marion and getting plants with Kendall than eating lunch out in there beautiful garden.

Easter - putting out decorations, dying the eggs, Easter morning, just about everything that has to do with it!

Getting my table for Mother's day. Now we can sit outside and eat dinner in the evenings.

Going to my cousins beautiful wedding.

Swine Flu school break - Not the actual swine flu, just the break part. I don't have any kids that go to school but all our friends and my sister and niece had off. So we had some fun days due to the Swine Flu outbreak.

Going to the Folkfest.

Mowing the grass for the first time since the fall. I always feel like my yard is so clean and pretty...I know this is weird. Just go with me on this one.

And celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary.

My Mother's Day

I was kind of looking forward to today. Just relaxing. This weekend was a busy one for us! It seems like everyone is so busy this time of year.

I hope all you Mommas out there had a great day yesterday! This is what I got...







We usually don't do gifts for birthday and anniversary's but when Kendall was born we decided that Mother's and Father's day would be special. And we are starting to work on a patio and I always wanted a picnic table.


We went out to my sister's house and spent the day with my family. Than we went to the Goebel's and had this...




Homemade Ice Cream...love that stuff!






Wild Goebel kids chasing the chickens.





Chasing cows.


Instead of opening the gate the kids just did this...




Than my two loves...




It was a good day!

Happy Mother's Day

Before I was a Mom I never tripped over toys or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom - I had never been puked on.Pooped on.Chewed on.Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom I never held down a screaming child so doctors could do tests. Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom I never held a sleeping baby just because I didn't want to put it down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom - I didn't know the feeling of having my heartoutside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom - I had never gotten up in the middle of the night every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth, The joy, The love, The heartache, The wonderment or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much before I was a Mom.

And before I was a Grandma, I didn't know that all those "Mom" feelings more than doubled when you see that little bundle being held by "your baby".


And remember that behind every successful mother... Is a basket of dirty laundry.


I love this! I'm sure you have probably gotten this in a email but I had to share.

Mom, I love you! You are such a inspiration to us girls and a great Omie to the "little ones" and Karagen!!!

Hope everyone has a great day! Now it's time for my coffee and great homemade breakfast from my hubby.:)

If you like a lot of pictures this post is for you!

This weekend we went to our family reunion. We had the best time! They have it at Jeff's cousin's ranch outside of College Station. I took some picture just to show you gals. Every time we leave I dream of having something like this one day...Jeff assures me someday I will.:)














OK now on to the family part...


This is what we they ate...




I don't do craw fish






Can you tell our family color is maroon? GIG 'EM Aggies!



Right before Kendie decided she didn't want to swing anymore and just jumped off.



Little Luke, the baby of the family...I could eat him up!




Kendall really needs a brother/sister soon! Love this picture!
