I'm so Thankful!!

Have you ever sat back and just looked at all the people around you????
For Thanksgiving we went over to my mother-in-laws house. I was sitting on the couch and felt tears fall from my eyes... I looked over at Hannah as she was helping Grandma set the table... I looked over at my husband and just felt peace and love in my heart... At that moment I felt a great deal of Thanks for all that I have in my life.... I am thankful for my family. My husband is my soulmate and the love of my life... My daughter is my greatest blessing....
My family is my greatest accomplishment...
I am so thankful for where I am in life and who I am....

A little Bragging!!

As you all know Hannah is in soccer this year. The first reason we put her in was to toughen her up... As she started playing she started to really enjoy it. She enjoyed meeting new friends and the change practice made in her weeks. At first she was scared of the ball and wouldn't go towards it during the games. She would find herself running along the side of it. As time went on she got a little more agressive. This last Thursday at practice she ask "Mom, if I do really good at practice when we get home can I have some Dippin Dots?" Sure!!!
She kicked butty!! She did such an awesome job at practice... I thought to myself... "If only she would take that energy to the game each Saturday"... WELLLL!! This last Saturday Hannah played the game as if it was hers. Not only did she run towards the ball and take it away from all the girls she scored her very first goal... Yeahhhh Hannah!!! Not only was she excited but I was jumping up and down with excitement!!! We are so so very proud of her....

Not Spoiled!!! ~ Just Loved

OK ~ So some people would say I'm spoiled. I go through cars like I go through shoes.... There is just something about a new car that I love... When I got married 3 years ago I bought a 4 door PT Cruiser.. I had that car for 2 years and decided I wanted a convertable... So I purchased a convertable PT crusier. I had that car for a year and a couple months then decided I wanted a bigger car... So I purchased the car you see in the above...
I like to think I spoil myself... I work hard for everything that I have therefore I spoil myself to feel like I am rewarded... Yes my husband helps out a lot but I like to feel I'm doing it on my own.. hehehe!!

OK.. Everyone is telling me that I'm crazy.. As of right now I am 100% complete with my Christmas shopping.. Yeahooo!! I have already started to plan for Hannah's birthday which is in February... I figured since she didn't get much of a birthday party last year I will make up for it this year.. I think with all the extra thought and all the time I have it might be a little overboard... I have a tea party theme going.. I rented a limo for her actual birthday which is on a Friday (and just so happens to land on Valentines day), I am waiting for a price quote from a carriage place that has Cinderella's carriage.... O well. They are only 7 once. I just have to think of something better each year.. Yipes!! What have I gotten myslef into.. O well.. Make sure you check back in February to see pictures of the BIG Party..

The L.A. Fair


We went to the L.A. fair and told eachother... "Lets not buy anything, lets just eat a
lot of food" So we did... I think I gained 10 lbs. that day.. A list of what we ate.......

Hot dog with every thing you can imagine on it
Chili Fries
Turkey Leg
BBQ Corn
Dippin Dots
Cotton Candy

We did other things too.. Don't think we just went to eat food... Hannah played in the snow, road a horse, climbed a wall... All kinds of stuff. We had a lot of fun..

I told you... I gained 10lbs!!

Kids are to funny!!!

If Hannah knew I was writting this she would kill me, but being a mother and finding so much humor in it... I have to share...

Last night Hannah had a case of diarreah. She was sitting on the couch with a scared look on her face... I asked her "what's wrong?" She said "I have diarreah!" I told her to go to the bathroom and go.... She said she was scared to go.. After 10 mins. of talking her into going to the restroom she finally went..

When she came out I asked if she was ok.. She said "I am now!" She asked me "Mom!! If diarreah isn't a bad thing then why is the word die in it?" I couldn't stop laughing.....
Kids are so funny!!

Soccer Mom

As much as I hate to admit it...... I have turned into a soccer mom...
I am one of those mothers on the side lines confusing her child on what to do in the game..
At least when the game was over Hannah said she still wants to continue to play soccer... She asked if next game I can just sit there and watch her play without saying anything... Oooopss!!! Sorry Hannah!! I'll do better next time....

My Little Ice Skater!!!

My little ice skater!!!
We have put Hannah in every sport you can think of. Every time, with out fail right when we are in the middle of what ever sport she is in she get board with it........
Well.... We finally found something she loves.. Ice Skating!!! She is a natural at this sport. The moment she got on the ice she fell in love. It is so cool to watch her, she goes into her own little world and is just amazing. I signed her up with a personal trainer every week.... She loves it. I, every once in a while will get on the ice, but I look nothing like Hannah.... Stay tune for more amazing pictures of our next Gold Metal Olympic Ice Skater!!!!

The Weather!!!

What is up with the weather in California.... Isn't it suppose to be summer!! I woke up this morning to rain and dark clouds.... It did make Hannah wake up quickly this morning... She loves the rain. When I walked into her room I said "time to get up, and hurry, it's raining out side" her head popped up so quick to look out her window.. (keep in mind she gets up every morning at 6 to be at school by 6:30am) ~
