Brotherly Love

I had to take this picture of my kids loving on each other. I'm telling you, if you have normal bratty kids, you know that the love only comes once in a thousand years. No, I'm just kidding. But I don't have many pictures of them doing this.

Tonight is movie night and we all choose a movie and eat popcorn. Believe me, we have to do what ever we can to get our teenager out of her room. The kids beg her to come out! So of course, she really picks the movie (brat). I know they love each other because they tease, complain, fight, and tell on each. So you see I had to take this picture. But as soon as I took the picture and Josh did something to irratiate Jade and that's was the end of that.

It's funny how Josh can tease Jade so much but want to hang out with her and even say and thinks she's cool. He wants her opinion and how and what to wear. When it's time for bed he sneaks in to her room and I can her them messing around. On Saturday he won a Sonic card so he took her on a date and bought her lunch. (Dennis drop them off). They walked around the park and went window shopping at the near by stores. They had so much fun together.

I hope that they remember all these things and enjoy each other because time goes by so fast. Jade will be graduating next year and leaving for college. I will only have two children left in my home. I don't know if I can handle that. I really miss all my babies. The house use to be so full. One day I hope that I will have them all together again, I ask for just one more time (fingers crossed). Kids if you remember some good stories write them down for me. Oh and you to sister. My memory is going!

New Friends

Eyvette as you know is homeschooled and sometimes she wants to just go out and play. Ok, she wants to go out and play all the time. But most of the kids in this neighborhood go to school. Well, this week the kids in the neighbor hood have school off (Thanksgiving week). This is her chance to meet a new girl that moved in across the street. The bible does say "A man that has friends must himself be friendly".
There were a couple of girls across the street playing, so Evyette went over and introduce her self and found out that she knew one of the girls from Missionettes. YAY! Good ice breaker! She was visiting the new girl that lived across the street. This made it easy for her now to meet the new girl.

I can see them playing together and having fun. Playing racket ball, and then base ball. Well, I guess they got really hot so they decided to come over and jump in to the pool. I thought wow, it's like only 77 degrees today, but ok. They put on their bathing suits and stepped in the pool. Which is not heated! "It's cold" they said. It was 46 degrees in the pool. Yep, it is cold! They splashed around for about 5 min and that was the end of playing in the pool. So they decided to sun bathe.
I'm so happy that Eyvette as a new friend! She isn't afraid to go out and just introduce herself. I think that some of us adults have that problem. We get in our little bubble and don't take the time to meet other people. Who knows, they might become really good friends. Eyvette encourages me more then she thinks. My little social butterfly! I am so thankful for new friends!

My Brother

I wanted to share that when I was in California for the birth of my grand baby I got to spend a lot of time with my parents and my brother Joey. My brother is one year younger then me and is the second oldest of us all. I truly had missed him. It was about two years or so since I got to spend time with him.

We did so many things when I was visiting. The first thing we did was go to the beach. It was so cold but so much fun. I love the beach, I just don't like the sand, it get everywhere if you know what I mean. My parents love the beach too. My mom would love to go and sit and listen to the crashing of the waves. She lived near the beach all her childhood years. My sister was with us too but I see her all the time. This story is about me and my brother. hahah

I think the next thing we did was go to the fair. The Pomona fair. That was fun too. We walked around, ate a lot of food and watched a parade. Oh, and took lots of pictures. My sister is good about taking pictures. So this blog will have pictures of us. We even have one of me eating corn. Yummy corn! Give me some of that corn! The food in California is so much better then Texas food. But the fairs in Texas have a lot more things to see, and is a lot nicer.

We went to two car shows. One on the mountain where my parents live and one down the mountain which is called Route 66. They had over 2000 cars. My brother had my sister take so many picture of his favorite types of cars. I mean lots and lots of pictures. I love him so! We did stay late and and enjoyed it. I think that the fumes and the riving of the engines might have been to much though.
I enjoyed just sitting and watching his favorite TV shows. But don't ask me what the names of the shows are because I forget. All that matters is that I got to hang out with him and watch him laugh. Well fefe (my mom's little chihuahua) his bittbull sit on his lap.
My brother made us dinner and is now one of my favorites. Chow Mean, it's the most easy meal to make and it tastes good too! If you want the recipe just let me know. I can picture him making it right now.
My brothers favorite nick name for me is butt head, but I know that I'm his favorite sister because of how he says it. All his sisters are called butt head. What can I say that's my brother. I love you brother! Next time brother, I'm going to tie you up in back of a trunk and make you run be hide it! (Inside joke)

Wow, it's been a long time since I've blogged. I'm here sitting on this chair that really belongs to my husband but I've taking it over. I don't know why? It's so uncomfortable. I can feel the springs shooting up, so I have to sit on a pillow. It's starting to get cold again and I love it. I actually love fall, the smell, ai,r and colors. Anyway, This blog has been on my mind, so I decided to come back. I really don't know who really cares what is going on in my life, but oh well.

Dennis has been home for about 3 months now and things are doing great. He was in California for awhile helping his dad. His mom past away in January and it was hard I think on all of them. It was hard on us at home too! The kids are really happy now that he is home again.

We have been so busy which is a good thing, I just forgot about my blogs. The kids are involved in JBQ which is Junior bible quiz , Royal Rangers , and Missionettes. It's like boy scout and girl scout, but Christian. Jade is really busy too. She helps lead worship for the youth and in the big church too. Cant forget school, I'm the teacher.

Lots of things happen this year, I'm a grandma now, Yay! My oldest daughter Brook gave birth to Jayla on September 21. She was 6 lbs 5 oz and 19 inches. The most beautiful baby in the whole except for my babies of course. Isn't she sweet! I call her my little brown button. We have skpe dates every Tuesday and I got to see her roll over. She's only 2 months and she is already rolling over. She is strong. I look at her and she reminds me so much of Brook when she was a baby. I miss those days.

My brother in law is serving in the army and has been gone I believe since September. My sister is going to have their first baby in January, so excited! Little James is his name. His room is so nice, Dennis painted it baby blue. We cant wait to meet him. James gets to come home for the birth. Please pray for his safety. My daughters Brook and Megan are coming out for the birth too, so I will get to see them and hold my grand baby. I just want to smell her head.

We had Ambers (sister) baby shower here at my home. It turn out so nice my parents got to come out. Josh and Eyve were so happy to spend time with their grandparents. They wished they didn't have to leave. Me too! Amber received lots of things. We played games and had lots of food. I cant wait to see those pictures.

We are going to a new church and I've become a berean, not that I wasn't before, but at least I knew what was being taught. Here, I really have to dig in the word and make sure my kids are being taught right.It's all good! I love it! I have learned so much that I want to tell everyone. I think I have grown more then I ever have in these last two years. Hard stuff!

Well, it's getting late and I can't remember everything else, but that's ok. I know that my grammer is off and I spelled things wrong, but that ok, it's my blog right!
Good night
