Monday, November 24, 2008


One of my favorite blogs to read is found here where each Monday you can be sure to find a post titled NOT ME MONDAY! Today, I thought I'd join along. Try it, supposedly its kinda like therapy. Doesn't every mom of a large family need therapy? So, here we go on NOT ME MONDAY! Poor Matthew was NOT forced to go to his sister's piano recital wearing a brand new pair of oh so cute shoes that were a tad bit too small for him, no mom would NEVER do that! We did NOT drive all the way to L.A. yesterday to NOT spend the day with my little brother and definitely did NOT forget Megan's bottle. I did NOT have to go to a Target in Hollywood and have to buy her a new one. Miguel, the kids, and I did NOT meet my brother for dinner last night and order THREE pazookies at BJ's. I did NOT get in the car and proceed to take a roll call of the children because I felt like I was missing something or someone. Last week while I was NOT grocery shopping and NOT dreaming of the nice bubble bath I was going to take once I got home, I did NOT get a phone call from work saying that I was supposed to be there an hour ago! Oh and I do NOT want "just one more baby!" Ahhh, now I feel better! Hehe.

What are friends for?

While looking at some old pictures that I have saved to my computer, I came across this one. My next thought was... "where would we be if we didn't have friends we could rely on?" Friends are gifts, they're treasures. Especially if you don't have any sisters. This one friend in particular is one I can call up when I need to vent or just when I need a good cry. Even though crying together can be fun, it's even better to share those good happy times together. Like the one here. A girl's day at Glen Ivy was very much needed, so that's what we did!
Where would I be without a friend like her??? Well, I know one thing for sure, my poor Emily would be sitting in a pair of soggy peed-in pants during bible school, if it weren't for my friend, Letty. Letty, this post is dedicated to you. I love you!
Can you recall a situation/event where you needed your best friend? Where would you be without your friends? Please share!

New Blogger and Halloween Pics

A day in the life of 5 kids. You learn to multi-task, here I'm
feeding a baby, doing Halloween makeup and hair, and entertaining guests!
Hi all, I'm new to the bloggy world so you'll have to bear with me and my posts. If you're a follower of the parentshack webpage I have (, you'll be happy to hear that once my subscription is up with them you can find us here in blogger instead. Because of that, you might want to add your email address in the comments so that I can add you to my faves. I should apologize ahead of time if your'e not a regular follower and you are somewhat disgusted with the Halloween decor. My husband's favorite holiday (if you even consider it a holiday) is Halloween. He's completely obsessed. Hence the zombies in the yard!
I've come to realize from reading other blogs that blogger has some benefits over parentshack like faster uploaded pics which means more frequent posts, and the best part is... it's free! And when you're a mom of 5, anything free is welcomed! With that said and as an introduction to my first blog post, here are a few Halloween pics. Enjoy, especially those of you who have been bugging, I mean asking, to see them . Thanks for following! P.S.- the pics are courtesy of my amazing friend/photographer/neighbor. Check out her website if you'd like ( Thanks again, Angel!
