In my next life...

Ok, so I got this email from my friend Amanda and thought it was really funny! And, I just wanted to share.

Gonna Be a Bear

In this life I'm a woman. In my next life, I'd like to come back as a bear. When you're a bear, you get to hibernate. You do nothing but sleep for six months. I could deal with that.

Before you hibernate, you're supposed to eat yourself stupid. I could deal with that too.

When you're a girl bear, you birth your children (who are the size of walnuts) while you're sleeping and wake up to partially grown cute, cuddly cubs. I could definitely deal with that.

If you're mama bear, everyone knows you mean business. You swat anyone who bothers your cubs. If your cubs get out of line, you swat them too. I could deal with that.

If your a bear, your mate EXPECTS you to wake up growling. He EXPECTS that you will have hairy legs and excess weight.
Yup, gonna be a bear!


Glad to call you mine!

Five years ago today I made one man happy!! And in return he has made me so happy! Saying yes was one of the best things I could have done and I am so glad to call him mine! He is such an amazing man. I can't believe it has already been five years! Sometimes it feels like yesterday! But now we have a love that is stronger than ever and it will continue to grow through the years. I am so glad that our love is forever, and I can't imagine what my life would be without him. Here's to you, Jelu! Here's to forever!

So, come back in time with me and share our day!


Let's hear it for the girl!

Three cheers for Kyra!! Yes! I am so ecstatic that we only have to buy diapers for one now!! With the cost of gas on the rise and diapers costing at least $60 a month, who wouldn't be excited to save that $60 for...I don't know...gas! Kyra is now potty trained! Hallelujah! How did I do it? Easy...tile floors and no money for diapers! With that, it only took her about two days to realize what she needed to do! She was definitely ready though since she always took off her diaper and ran around wild and free! (Yea, daddy didn't like that much!) I just wanted to share my total excitement with all of you who may read this!


Missing Samoa

Ok, so it's been almost a year since I went with my hubby and girls to meet his family in Samoa. Lately I have been thinking alot about it and have been missing it. Yea, it is different from what I am used to but I had such a great time while I was there. It was nice to meet Jelu's family and see where he grew up. One day we will be going back...not sure when but we will go. They definitely need to meet the new addition since I was at the end of my first trimester when we went. We were there for two and a half months and had so many pictures to choose from. These are from the first folder I looked in. What great memories. As I was trying to figure out what pictures to put on this little slide, I remembered all the great times.
To all of you back in Samoa...we miss you and love you and hope one day soon we will spend time together again! This little slide show is dedicated to you. It only has a few pictures of the time we spent, mostly of family. So I hope you all enjoy.


Day at the Zoo

Animal fun!

Well, a while ago we, meaning myself and the kids, and my sister went to the Fort Worth Zoo. It was sad that Ioelu wasn't able to go since he had to work but we tried to have fun without him. The zoo is pretty big and with Krisalyn and Kyra running around and my sister healing from a knee surgery, it was taking a while to get from one place to another. So we didn't get to see even half of what was there, but there is always next time. I promised Krisalyn that next time Daddy would be with us and we will see the Lions! What we did see were some elephants, gorillas, monkeys, giraffes, and some birds. Yea, those were all at the front of the Zoo. I had been there before a few years ago but I had no clue on how to get around, even with the map! Craziness!!
