Back to school

Well May is back to school. Dominik is really bored. First pic is of Mays first day back to school. She is loving first grade. I am so proud of her she is in a second grade reading class. She excels in everything she puts her mind to. She told me yesterday that she is the Caring Kid this week. Its a big deal. Its like student of the week. She is doing so well.
The second pic is of her first dance
dance class. She really likes the ballet. She gets confused and discouraged in the Tap class. We haven't even got to do the Jazz part yet. But like I keep telling her she will get better, and to keep practicing. Her first girl scout meeting is Friday. I will have to pick her up early to get to dance on time. Why did they have to be on the same day? At almost the same time? Dom has his PAT meeting tomorrow. He just loves Mary. But there is not much going on with Dom and I right now. Most things are to do with May. She is a busy 6 yr old. We do need to start planing for Dominiks 2nd b-day. Well I guess that's a good update for now I got projects to work on.

Just a few

Alright I figure its time to update a bit. Here is a pic of May and her friend Keven. They are only 6 days apart and love it when they get to see each other. They have been friends since the day Keven was born. They miss eachother alot cuse we dont live by them any more. But they write letters to each other. Which is great since they can write now.

The other pic is of Dom and his new toys that daddy got him when we got back from our trip. Hes got the saw and the protective gear. Hes ready to work. His PJ's says it all "Little Monster" We really haven't been doing much here. We are getting ready for May to go back to school next Wednesday. Her new teacher sent her a post card yesterday. Mrs. Guffy. It was verry sweet of her. We will get to meet her at Open house on Monday. May will be signing up for dance classes on the 18th which is a sat. This summer has gone fast. I will miss having May here every day. DJ will miss her too. But next summer will come quick and by the time I turn around May will be graduating High School. I need to keep reminding myself that time will fly and I need to make the most of it while I can. Pretty soon May will want to hang out with her friends instead of her family. I have a bit longer to keep Dom my baby. But it will happen to him as well. I will get off here now I have some stuff to do. Shannons birthday is sat. I have to make a card and get some pics printed out for her.

Im Back!!!!

We are back from Cali. 6 weeks of vacation are gone. I wish we had more time. I dont feel like we got to see every one I wanted to see or do everything we wanted to do. Hey theres always next year. I defanately miss my family. Here are some more pictures from our vacation. The first one is of me may my dad and Dom standing on the Star Of India.

It is an old retired ship that they made into a museum. It is down in Sea Port Village, In San Deigo. The 2nd is of May and A "Real Pirate" aboard the Pirate ship Museum. They asked May to stay and be their captain. She wanted to live there forever so she could be captain. They even gave her treasure. She was toally into it.

The 3rd pic is of the Pirate Ship. Very cool. You got to go down below and see every thing. There were 5 museum ships in all but Dom was tired so I only got to see 2 of them. May and my dad went to the old Russian submarine. I still think her favorite was the pirates though.

and of course the last pic is of Dom sporting his "chicks dig me" shirt. It does speak the truth. He would go up to girls blankets on the beach and stare at them till they looked at them, then he would just give his cheesy grin. and the girls would just laugh and say how cute him and his shirt was. He is a ladys man and Im going to have trouble when he gets older.

New Friends and Boots

We went to the street fair on Thursday and met up with Mays new best friend, Bradley. He will be 3 in Aug. As you can tell May loves him. They are so cute playing together and dancing. Dominik thought it would be funny if he put on uncle TC's work boots. Since TC wears a 14 it was really funny. I went Bowling and to the karaoke bar with some friends last night. We had a great time. My friend Eric is the DJ there. He has alot of fun doing it. It was great to watch ppl go up there and sing. I cannot sing. I just like to watch. But my friend Jason who Ive known since I was really little got up and sang. He was nervous I think at first but he got over it quick.

He did really well. I hope you like the pictures. I have more to post at a later date.

Seals and birthdays

OKay you have to admit that this little seal is about the cutest thing you will ever see. When we went to the beach (San Deigo) we were on the pier after lunch and this little guy was in the water waiting for his lunch. When the fishermen would catch a fish he was the first one to try to grab it. He wasnt full grown only a baby still. This woman went and bought a bunch of Bait. Like mini fishes and was feeding him what a life huh? Just wait at the pier to be fed? Glad I had my camera ready cuse May will be talking about this for a while. Also here is a pic of my dads birthday party. It went realy good. 31 ppl. Id say we had 6 or 7 waiters. Im happy to say my

dad loved his birthday present from us. I have been taking lots of pictures on it. when ever I figure out how to get the pics on the comp. I will be posting some good ones. We went to My friends sons K graduation yesterday. They did a tribute to the Beatles. SOOOOO cute. Then we went out to lunch. If you ever have an oppurnity to go to the Cheesecake factory. try it! Its really good. Tonight we are going to the street fair. We are meeting some friends down there. My friend has a little boy who is 3 and just fell for May and she him. They are so cute together. They listen to the music and dance. From what ive heard he is normally shy. Well leave it to May to bring out any one. It is Hot today 106. It takes all your energy. But the kids have had their nap and they are ready to go. lol I have one of my friends comming over today to help me with the camera so I hope I get the pics on here soon. write more later.

The Beach

Here are some pictures of the kids at the beach. They had such a good time. If I can load our other pictures on the computer I have some other good ones on my dads cam. I havent figured out how to work it with the computer yet. We are having fun and using plenty of sun block. lol Im hoping to go bowling some time this week. Played rummy with Jen last night. May got to stay up to watch Shrek. Hoping to go to Michaels this week too. Went to a carnaval and parade this weekend. Dom fell asleep in my arms at lunch didnt even get to ride any rides. On Sun he didnt want a horse back ride and wouldnt jump in the bouncy thing till I went in
there and jumped with him. It was funny, I havent been in one since I was like 4 mabie? May has 3 loose teeth right now. I think she wants to loose one out here. Doms vocab is soaring. He sits and has whole conversations with any one who will listen. My brother and his friends like playing with Dom. It is pretty funny. according to them I have cool kids. Dom loves the attention from them. post more later.

Here is a picture of Dominik and Shannon at Rubys Dinner on the pier in San Deigo. We had lunch there before we went to the beach on Monday. The kids had such a good time. To my surprise May wasnt affraid of the water... much. They built a sand castle. Dom wanted to do it from the blanket though he wanted to play in the sand just not walk in it. Kinda funny and easy to keep track of him. I got a pretty bad sun burn. the kids didnt though. So that was good. We realy are having the best time. Not a dull moment around here. Post more pics soon.

Thursday, May 31, 2007


May and Mike went fishing a few weekends ago and here is one she caught. She is finally learning not to be afraid of the fish. We are leaving to cali tomorow and im realy exited. I doubt ill get much sleep tonight. May is exited too. She loves the airplane. She talked on the phone to my mom for a half hour yesterday, just as exited as can be. I hope that Dominik will behave him self on the airplane. He doesnt like to sit still for long periods of time. I got some stuff for him to do and I bought some read along cds for them both. I think I will have 2 cd players as well so they can listen to them at the same time. I also have the gameboy but I dont think Dominik will get that yet. Plus lots of snacks. I will buy dinner at one of the many resturants in the Dallas airport. That place is like a mall. Hopefully they will both take a nap and I will get some peace. lol Not likely but I can hope right? Well thats all for now I probably wont be on here for a few days. Ill post pics of our vacation soon.

Saturday, May 26, 2007


Well I tried to put a pic up but it wouldnt let me do the one I wanted. it keeps putting one on that I didnt choose? I have no idea. I just wanted to tell every one that Tomorow will be 5 days till I go on vacation. Cali for 6 weeks. I will try to keep posting pics and what not on here so every one is still updated. ill talk to you later Erin

Ive Been tagged!

I have been tagged to tell 7 odd things about me. Here it goes:

#1) I have lots of pet peeves. I think more than a normal person? My biggest? The toilet paper has to go over the top. If I'm at someones house or a public restroom I will change it.

#2) I don't like to fish! (Or eat it really) My husband would not like hearing that. I have no patience to sit out on the water with the mosquito's and other bugs, possibly snakes. And wait and wait and wait. BORING! I cant think of lots of other stuff to do with my life other than sitting. Oh yeah and that No making noise thing, I would suck as a hunter too. I cant stay quiet.

#3) I cant garden. I just cant keep things alive. Id much rather Mike do it all any way. Ive never been one to play in the dirt. Even as a kid. I don't like to get dirty. (I guess I better find myself a nice clean job then huh?)

#4) All my dishes that I wash Have to go in the drainer a certain way. Plus all my cereal boxes have to go a certain way.

#5) Even though my kids annoy me sometimes I would rather spend all my time with them than anybody else.

#6) Even though I'm 25, I like listening to my music hard and loud. I have to have music on when I clean.

#7) I would move back to Cali in a heart beat. If it was a little more like MO.

That picture is one from the Zoo. We loved the baby elephant and his mama. She kept kicking him in the butt to keep him moving. Even though it rained on us a bit we still had a really good day.

Monday, May 14, 2007


This ones for you aunt Allison!!! Right now I have to find my pictures of my friends, so I did the next best thing. Here is a pic of May with her friend, Caleb. One of my friends is his mom Cindy. I dont have any pics of her though. Caleb and May are in the same class. They have been friends since the beginning of the year. I hope they have many more years of friendship. I will be posting more friend pictures soon.

Thursday, May 10, 2007


These are some pics from Mayali's Bridging Ceremony on tuesday. She was more exited than she looked. lol the one just of her there was a bee buzzing around and she was freaked out. lol She was a daisy in girl scouts now she is a brownie. Tonight she has a music program to sing at for school. I hope to get some good pictures there too. She is the most exited about going to the zoo next tuesday. I will be driving our car there so Dominik and I can go too. Im bringing DD along to help with Dominik. It should be fun I love Mays class. They are all very sweet kids. I get hugs every time im
around. It makes a person feel very special to have that kind of uninhibited love from 6 yr olds. Im very lucky to have my children. I hope they know that. We have 3 weeks till we go to cali. Im counting down the days. Every one will be sick of me before its time to go. I can tell my mom is exited too. Mays counting down till school is over they get out on the 18th. Then ill have 2 kids all day all summer. Im sure we will find something to do. lol Well im off to give shorty a bath before I have to get May.

Saturday, May 5, 2007

May always has a strange smile on her face. ??? I have no idea what thats about. lol I have more pics to post at a later date thanks for reading.

Gooey Louie

Yep, I know this is Gross. At our birthday dinner Dominik decided that he wasn't getting enough attention soooo he went to play in the dog bowl. Yes that is dog slobber. Can we say ewwwww? Sue already had her camera out and took the shot while I was sweeping in to sanitize the situation. I know there are worse things to come. I don't think I will ever be prepared lol.

Sunday, April 29, 2007


I took this beauitful picture yesterday at my mother in laws house. She said she is running out of ideas for her photo a day blog. This is to show that you can get a number of photos just going to her house and taking pictures of all of her great things. As you can tell I love sepia tone pics. I tried it in black and white. It looks good that way too but I love this way. Her latice porch is the perfect back drop.

Butterflies and gardens

This is what the picture of that Butterfly should have looked like on my SB page. I got it at the perfect time when its wings were open and you could see all the colors. The other picture is of my hubby planting flowers with my daughter. I'm not a gardener by any means. So I leave the beauty of the yard to my husband. Now my daughter wants to play in the dirt too. lol They love it. I love the

fact that they are getting to spend time together. It warms my heart.

My first digital SB page

Yeah I did it. It took me all day but I did it. As I figure out more about Photo Shop I will get some better pages up too. I got some free brushes off this site so I have to credit them. and Those brushes are awsome. I will be working on more of these. Im hooked.

Monday, April 16, 2007


The last few days I have gotten some great pictures of Dominik and his FOOD. Or as he calls it "num, nums" He finally got his first brownie batter spoon and loved every miniute of it. Of course after, he went straight to the bath. lol Last night you can tell what we had for dinner, pasta! Dominik loves pasta. Mike decided to give him some of the left over noodles to snack on while the rest of us

finished our dinners. It is so much fun to fling noodles all over the place. I have a Scrapbook page to share with you all but our photo shop wont let me save my edits. I think I will have to reinstall it. So mabie tomorow? Hopefully!? What did we ever do with out photo shop and computers? I tell you we musta been pretty bored. lol

okay on with the tagging...
My 3 events that have occured:

1864 - The U.S. Congress passes the Coinage Act which mandates that the inscription "In God We Trust" be placed on all coins minted as United States currency.

1970 - First Earth Day celebrated
1971 - John Kerry, dressed in combat fatigues, testifies on his views of the Vietnam War before the United States Senate Foreign Relations Committee

I know I was only supposed to have 2 important birthdays but I realy liked 3:

1937 - Jack Nicholson, American actor

1959 - Ryan Stiles, Canadian-born actor
My 1 Death:

Another from the park

Here is another from the park. I realy like this one too. I couldnt tell you what either of them are looking at. lol I am hoping to have a yard sale this weekend b4 Easter. My B-day is in 3 weeks and Mays Bday is in 3 1/2 weeks. Its time for me to clean out the old stuff. May and Dominik both need more room. I just hate having to go thru every thing. It reminds me how much stuff we have.

Happy Easter!!!

Okay I know its a little early to be saying Happy Easter, But I just couldn't help myself they just look too cute. Once again I love photo shop. lol I am working on some more pictures that I have taken. Ill post them soon. I entered a photo contest with A Walk In The Park. I would love to enter it in the fair. Mabie I could get Mike to enter it for me. You know the funny thing with pictures is to me at first you think you got nothing worth anything then you go and look thru them again and you find an amazing picture that you just love. Trust me its hard geting Dominik to sit still for even one min. I need a better camera with a faster shutter speed. I hate sutter lag. There is a big diffrence in one second, when it comes to taking pictures of kids. lol well im off to post another SB page. TTFN

Monday, March 26, 2007

Hiya !!!

This is Dominiks Hiya picture. He looks sooooo cute. I want to put a link on here for my new blog but with this new template it doesnt give me a place to put links in. So if you want to check out my other blog go to I am going to start one on the scrapbook sites too but this one is I guess my practice site. lol I realy like these other pictures I got on here. Mabie I should make a picture portfolio too. hummmm okay it seems like I have lots to do. BTW Sue thanks for the praise on your blog, its nice to have some support. Even if im not getting it any where else.

Walk in the park

I have fallen in love with this picture. After I changed it to sepia tone. The colors in the sky just automaticly looked this way. It is so pretty. Right now it has to be my favorite picture. Well Ill post my other fave tomorow. The pictures in the park turned out realy well. I will just have to go back and get more. I can see this picture on a greeting card or on the wall of a Dr office. lol Its too bad that I know that they were fighting the whole time May was trying to hold on to Dom and He just tried to get away. Funny that from the back you cant even tell. Untill tomorow...

Saturday, March 24, 2007


Okay this is my first pic posted now that we have DSL back. yeah!! Sue and I took the kids to a conservation park. perfect opp. to take pics of the kids. we got some pretty good ones. I was just bummed when my camera card said "Card Full" and I could have taken TONS more pics. But it was fun and only like 5 min from my house. Ill be sure to go back soon. More pics is always good. ttfn

Wednesday, March 21, 2007

My computer has a virus on it and I am going to have to take all my pictures off the computer till I know its fixed. I realy dont want to loose them. So this will be my last pic for a little while I think. I hope Mike can get it fixed soon. This morning I had to restart the comp 4 times before I could get it to work. sucks ttyl

Spring is almost here

As the title says Spring is almost here. May is on her spring break this week. So a bit later today if every one can behave, We will dig up the sidewalk chalk, get out the bubbles, and have a little out door fun. It will be so nice to not be cooped up like we were all winter. The kids are ready to just have a good time. Since Dom is running around it makes it easier. He can join in on the fun. I took this pic here a few weeks ago, We were at a new restraunt eating lunch. Every moment is a photo opt. in my book. My daughter is soooo silly. She wants to pose for every pic but most of the time she looks like she is posing as a rabbit. More about that later. The other pic on here is the most recent I have of both of the kids. Its hard to get them to sit still together for 5 seconds. Im counting down the days till We go to cali 11 weeks 4 days. lol I cant wait. Vacation time here I come. (in another 11 weeks) As for count downs go... 6 weeks till May and My birthdays. My girl will be 6. we cant count it on a hand any more. lol She gets older so do I. with our bdays so close it makes it that much more real to me. It still shocks me that I have 2 kids lol when did that happen?
