snow and christmas goodies

first was 70 something yesterday. my kids were wearing shorts and flip flops while playing outside. and today we have this...

i guess that's texas for ya. and it is still coming down. maybe we will get snowed in tomorrow and not have to go anywhere....oops...did i just say that... ;)

here is what i made for my two besties....

bse stands for "BEST SUMMER EVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVER!" booyah!

liz came over late last night after work and brought me some goodies...

my polka dot blankie...

notebooks for me and the girls...

a christmas ornament. she doesn't think i notice the "ny" but i did :)

and my fave of all (cause ma made it)

oops i forgot to flip the pic...ain't it so cute! it's a key chain! i will always remember ma's visit to tx :)

the girls loved my polka dot blankie so much they had to have one too. so dad made his way through the blizzard and wally to get them one each. brave soul he is. now these might not be "snuggies" but they are just as good :P

we let them open them early

kimber and dad


and goofy miranda (she reminds me of that snl chick...superstar...when she smells her hands after putting them in her pits...hehehehe)

whew....that was a long post. i'm sure i forgot something.

now i'm off to make one last thing. lalo put together a scrapbook for my nephew's football season and i forgot that i promised her i would do the cover page...later

this past weekend was the white rock marathon. i so wanted to run it...but after watching liz i'm not so sure i can. we went out to dallas sat night so liz could get a good nights rest. the alarm was set for 5:20 and we were off! here are some of the pics i took. for more pics and details you can check out her blog

she is such a nut! after she finished writing secret stuff on herself in koren we went down to the breakfast nook and stocked up on munchies for after the race.

the sun was just begining to rise when we got to the american airlines center

bye lizzie! (bad pic but it's all i got)

this one is kinda freaky. i say that is a ghost ;)

this is where i had to leave her. they wouldn't let me behind the gates

hi lizzie! can you see her??!!?? i was waiting on a side street for her


this is what i watched for at least ten minutes. there were thousands of peeps! i almost didn't find liz. thank god for cell phones. i really want to run it next year! we will see....

fun times

here are a few pics from last weekend. we went to visit some old friends out in east tx. the girls (and me) had a blast on the go carts and 4 wheelers!

i'm bad you know it!

miranda freaking out

miranda whinning....getting the feel for how things went??? kimber has no fear!

lg was out of control! she couldn't get it to go fast enough

ok...maybe a bit to fast. she also has no fear. she decided the trees needed to be trimmed a bit i guess. she crashed into the neighbors shed as well and left a nice dent for them

finally miranda let go and tried the little one

k and i

that's all for now folks :)

a lot of catching up

so i haven't been keeping up with my blog like i should. life gets in the way sometimes ;)
here is a recap of the last couple of months...

(and i didn't feel like cropping any pics)

thought this was funny...

liz and i last year seeing twilight (for the second or third time)

liz and i last night at the midnight showing of new moon. pretty funny don't ya think!

angie and liz sitting in front of miranda and i

miranda being goofy as we wait patiently for the movie to start.

this is before we headed out to denny's and the movie. miranda felt special because i invited her to hang out with us big girls. i know she had school today but hey you only live once, right? i just hope she passed that test that counts for 70% of her grade ;)

during the first 30 minutes or so...right when edward leaves bella in the woods...some guy in the theater got up and tripped. SMASHED his head! it was really scary. it sounded like glass shattering he hit it so hard. i was torn...look at him and all the police and emergency help hauling him out on one of those boards they strap you down on or watching bella curl up into a ball calling for edward. i know i know, hard really i hope he is ok. it didn't look good.

this is miranda playing at a volleyball tournament. she has improved so much this year. so proud of her.

here i am a few hours after my surgery. i just had a scope done on my ankle to remove some scar tissue from my soccer injury back in june. so i'm back in that stinky old boot again. i have 2 more weeks to go. i'm still going to the gym but i miss the cardio! i need to run!!!

we had a chance to go to our first nascar race thanks to hubby's work. here are a few pics...

lg and kimber at our "tail gate" party

two of my goofy girls

the stinky boot

lg decided we are newman she says it "new man"

zz top preformed before the was sad people! i loved them back in the day but they could barely move! and they were the ones to say "gentlemen start your engines". you could hardly hear them and they talked very slow. totally lost the effect.

lg got the part of john lennon from the beatles in her school play. angie saved the day! i waited to the last minute...seriously...for the costume. that is why her coat is a bit small. yes the sleeves go almost up to her elbows! i know! worst mom of the year award that day! but she did great and everyone loved her! thanks ang for hunting down a jacket and shirt :)

this is kimber and her "favorite cousin in the world" she loves her cj! and i must say i'm a proud aunt. he is only in 10th and playing first string varsity!

here is a pic of a childhood bestie. becky and i haven't seen each other in over ten years! this pic was taken back in the summer the first time i saw her. we didn't have much time...along with her 4 kids and 2 of mine but she came to dallas for a work thing last weekend and i went to visit her. dumb me didn't take my camera! ugh! it was so fun catching up. i have missed her so!

this was the official last "byd" of the summer. BDA baby! love my girls! that trampoline has lots of memories ;)

here is the first day of school back in august. i had to just about pull some teeth to get them to take it. they are growing up to fast!

ok, that's enough for now. i have lots more but tired of loading all the freakin pics. i'm working on some scrappy projects i will share when i'm done.
