I crack myself up

I Crack myself up! I have started dieting recently and even joined the gym! After signing up for the gym they offer a free personal training session,so I set mine up immediatly.I met my trainer, and she is this 20 something, huge fake boobs, hard assed little thing. We sat down to talk and it became apparent quickly she was a bit grossed out by me and a little condesending too. She informed she she is a size 3-5 just like she was in high school, so no woman can use aging or having kids as a excuse for gaining weight-Just look at her. UGHHH,ok so now I am pissed, so what do I do?? I sign up for more training with her! I can assure I will never miss a appt, I will never work less than 110% I AM GOING TO DO THIS!! Sooo, to help motivate myself, I downloaded a bunch of songs. The first one I start out with is the one you are listening to "You Dropped a Bomb On ME" Funny eh? Especially when my butt cheeks try dancing while the rest of me is trying to exercise. I then go into songs like bootylicious, thong song etc.. I see a pattern here..I like to end with Cool and the Gang "Victory"Well, I have been at it for two weeks now, and am down 5 lbs. I can't wait until I am able to feel good about myself. It has been a long time coming! So my friends, if you are thinking of getting out there and exercizing, think of me, on the treadmill singing you dropped a bomb on me, my butt cheeks dancing,me being the only fat chick in the gym (what's up with that?) then do it.. and share.. let me know so I can use you as motivation when cool and the gang, and miss hard ass are no longer doing it for me!

Sodas and Sisters

Life is good with a big gulp and

walks with your sister.

Jelly Roll

Ethan needs some jelly with those rolls.

She works hard for her money

Mom working out in the front room with the girls.

I am getting bigger

Today I came home for lunch and I saw Ethan dressed so cute in this big boy outfit and I had to take pictures of him. He is over 10 months old and such a sweet boy. You can see the gears turning in his head as he explores new things.

What a Difference a Year Makes!

I was looking through photos on my computer and came across these. They were taken one year ago at our home in Frederick. Makes me homesick for our old home, the weather there etc...
We has a HUGE winter storm, and were unable to leave our culdesac for a few days till the snow plows came through. Every time we tried driving, we got stuck in the snow and had to be pulled out by a neighbor.Tony even got stuck at 5 am on his way to work. He could not even open his door because the snow drift was so high.Fortunately someone was out and pulled his car out.Our next door neighbor Steve built the snow cave for the girls to play in.They thought it was the neatest thing. Zach and his friends tried to go tubing during the storm, but had trouble seeing anything, so they returned home defeated.I am going to miss winters so much.
Hannah and Grace were having fun throwing the frisbee at Liz and Rachelle

We had hours of fun looking for shells and crabs.The tide was so low and the water was not too cold.

I have baby's at the beach that hated it and cried all the time, and baby's that did ok, so I was nervous to see how Ethan did. I had NOTHING to worry about!!! HE LOVED IT! And,apparently, sand tastes delicious!


Our day at the beach was amazing. We went to San Elijo State Beach because they have some really fun tide pools we wanted to check out,

The day was perfect,clear skies,warm weather, and the tide was low so we could explore the tide pools. The kids had such a great time and I found it to be a boost to my spirits to be able to share the whole experience with my kids.
