Blessings and ramblings and I haven't...

I have been remiss. I keep thinking that I should be posting a new blog and then I get tranfixed on farming. What is farming you ask? It's a stupid sim game on Facebook and I am hooked. I am addicted. I pass wheat fields on the real road and think... I could harvest that. ha!

So, I haven't been blogging. I haven't blogged about a wonderful weekend we had to celebrate Jason and his sisters birthday. His mom came into town and watched all of the kids while we got to spend a night at the Omni hotel downtown. We went to dinner at Reatta's and then met his sister and brother in law for a comedy show. We had a great night. What a great gift from my mother in law. :)

I haven't blogged about my nice weekend by myself. Jason went to Matagorda and Joe and I had a 'date weekend'. :)

I haven't blogged about my bowling with Meg and Jeff. She cleaned our clocks. ;) We had a great time doing it though. We had a nice dinner at Abuela's and then headed over to a local bowling alley. meg's sister, Anna, watched all of the kids and they had a great time. :)

Nope... didn't blog about our great swimming adventure over at Susan's house. They decided to try their hand at smoking a brisket and did an excellent job. We arrived with salads and beans and desserts and drinks and Susan had made sangria which was to die for... albeit a bit strong. The kids swam. The adults swam. GREAT fun to be had by all.

I haven't blogged about our wonderful trip to Cedar Creek Lake. My dear friends, Cindy and Crissy and I were all pregnant at the same time. (with their firsts and my only, ha!) and we really became close just after the kids were born. So... we decided that it would be fun to rent a lake house for a weekend. All three families. Some of our other good friends were all out of town and another had just had a baby so... it was just the six of us and the five kids.

Cedar Creek Lake is about an hour and a half from Dallas and three hours from Houston. We met up there on Friday to get settled. Jason came after work and arrived about 5:30 ish. We fried up some fish for dinner with all of the accoutrement's and Crissy, John and the kids showed up soon after.

Scott and Cindy brought their Wii and we brought our controllers. We had so much fun playing those stupid games.... video's will follow. :)

The kids all played relatively well with each other. Joe was a bit cranky and didn't play as well with others. but they did have fun and the girls had a blast with each other. And I will say that Joe had quite a little crush on miss Abby. :)

The weekend was full with parks, rented boats, excellent food... a bit of drinkin and just plain relaxing and good friends.

We finished up the weekend on Monday. We all headed home to our corners with heavy hearts and tired kids. Promises of doing it again next year made.

I know I haven't blogged about Dee and Jason's trip to Dallas to go to the last preseason Cowboys game in the new stadium. We got to go. I had never been to a real football game let alone in the new stadium. how fun!!! They arrived on Friday night, Meg and Jeff and kids had come over for some meatloaf and Wii and to drop off a carseat that they forgot. The weekend finished off with a swim visit to Meg's parents oh yeah and to pick up a carseat... that we forgot.

so, I guess I haven't blogged lately about how blessed I am. I seriously have the best friends. How... HOW has it happened that I don't have just one friend that can be considered my best friend but really a gaggle of girls (and husbands) that I would, quite honestly, gladly give a kidney for. These girls (and husbands) shape who I am... by teaching me to be better. By leading through example. By caring, by sharing and just by being themselves. And I am only mentioning a few of them. There are far more that I haven't mentioned. And if I didn't mention you... I'll get to save you for a future installment of "I haven't told you about... have I?"


love you guys! Thank you for being in my world and making it better.

oh yeah... and pics to come. :)

Sounds like a busy great life (with a little farming thrown in)!
