God has worked miracles in my life and heart this past year.
Mom and DD are still living with us and it seems to be working out for everyone.
I think it's a great thing that the children have so many adults in one house that love them and give them all the attention they need.
There are times I wish it were the four of us again but those thoughts don't last very long. I really do enjoy them being here, just wish we had a tad more space.
I'm so thankful for my family, for my mother, for all of the mothers I have met that have inspired me, given me tips to survive the hard days and just been there to listen.
I pray for all those who have lost their mothers on this Mother's Day Weekend and those who may be estranged from their mothers. I pray for peace and strength for them.
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!

He had a Star Wars party of course, three years in a row and I'm betting next year will be the same. We made light sabers out of pool noodles again (post pictures of those later). It rained so what was supposed to be an outside party quickly became an inside one. They had a blast having a picnic on the floor while watching the movie Star Wars The Clone Wars and had a light saber fight in my living room while I ran around removing all the breakables. :)
I will try and post more pictures of the actually party as soon as my photographer (MARLA) sends them to me :)
Happy 6th Birthday Roo Bear you have changed my world forever and I love you with all my heart.

I was confirmed Catholic after a very long journey and decided it was what God was calling me to do. I still just call myself Christian though because I've never been a fan of labels.
Picture of Jose and I before leaving for my confirmation on Easter Vigil night.
Some Easter pictures of Ruben and Marissa. He is doing great in school and is taking guitar lessons and loving it. He has a recital coming up soon. Will post pics, he has a aqua blue guitar, with his spiky hair the kid is something else.
So much more to catch up on and I will do it soon, promise.

He's more compassionate than most adults I know.
He has no problems doing the chores I assign because as he says 'that's what family does, we all have to do our part."
He fills my days with joy and makes my tomorrows brighter and he would do that even if he were not mine.
Oh and he cracks me up, like when he asked why his shoes had check-marks on them?

She would not get in the ticket bubble so Roo did it for her.

2. She underwent surgery at 10 months to remove a cyst in her throat. This was taken after the surgery.
3. She's never been able to take her eyes off her brother for very long.
4. Little Miss Fearless loved and still loves to climb everything.
9. She has to take front and center with Roo and his friends.
10. She prefers to cut her own hair and is very proud of the results.
11. Her favorite outfit is any dress and her knee-high black boots.
12. She thinks she the boss.
Thank you Lord for our second blessing.

It's time again to join Pam and reflect upon the moments we will miss the most since time seems to be moving at warp speed these days.
We have a wood burning stove in our family room (well it's our old family room, that now belongs to my mom and aunt).I hated that stove when we first moved in because it took up too much room. I had plans in my head of taking it out someday, but after the ice storm in Jan. the wood burning stove saved us when we were without electricity for three days.
So it will be part of our family as long as we are here.
Jose brought wood from outside this weekend and the kids ran to help him and actually carried a lot of wood in. They thought helping Daddy was the coolest thing ever. I'm positive that will not always be the case and I'm gonna miss that.
