It's Somebody's Birthday....




I Love you and hope that your day is wonderful...I'll try and make it so!



Well, I'm finally breaking my bloggin' silence to wish my Holly a Happy 9th Anniversary! I could not let this day pass without telling the love of my life how much she means to me. She was, and still is, the answer to my prayers. I can honestly say that she is my best friend. I love you!!!

Memory lane...Time goes so fast, but I will always remember our first "notadate" at Whataburger and the dock. I bought us two chicken strip meals at the Whataburger on Ocean Dr. and we ate them at dock on the bay. She was still dating this pilot dude, so I told her it was not a date, but that I was just buying a good friend a meal. ;o) Hee hee hee...


Yeah, I'm a Lil Bit Old School.

A while ago I downloaded the original Super Mario Brothers to our Wii. The Wii is really cool in that you can go online with it and download nearly any old or new Nintendo game.

I loved playing SMB back in the day on the original Nintendo game system. I used to be able to beat the game in about 5 minutes with one life.

Well, this weekend I was able to beat the game! OK, it took me about 5 lives and around 10 minutes, but I still got it baby! The princess is safe once again! I was so proud of myself that I had Aubrey take a picture of me. I'm such a dork, but oh well...it was fun!


Happy Veteran's Day

Happy Veteran's Day to all those who have served our great country...especially my Dad! We love you Dad and are so proud of you and your service. Your stories from the battlefield have strengthened my testimony as well as many others. I know the Lord and His angels kept watch over you.


Apples to Apples...Our Style

Our family loves to play the game Apples to Apples. It is a simple and fun game to play with the family. You can read about it here.

My parents are in town and we decided to play tonight. Nana won by a landslide...almost twice! We love to look at our green cards at the end of the game. We say (in jest) that the green cards describe the person who holds them. Here are the results from tonight! :o)
  • Tata: Hot, Sour, and Strange

  • Nana: Spooky, Dirty, Lumpy, Important, Rough, Helpful, and Fuzzy

  • Joey: Brave, Dark, Great, and Exciting

  • Holly: Boring and Bad

  • Aubrey: Pretty, Slow, and Warm

  • Ella: Wonderful, Hairy, and Shaggy

  • Cali: ZZZzzzz

We also played a little Hullabaloo...
