Skateboarding and The Yard

There really has not been much going on around here. With it being 9-11 and with hurricane Ike threatening, my life seems boring but here is what we are up to. Remember I work on Wednesdays and Thursdays so those are hard days to blog until the evenings but work has been busy already this year. Lots of kids in need already this school year-- wow!!!

I have to say how 100% and super crazy excited I am right now!!! WHY YOU ASK????? Well, my BFF Laura is coming out from Manhattan on Sunday and will be here until Thursday. I can hardly wait!!!! Laura is Laila's identical twin sister and we have been best friends since 7th grade so we have some major history behind us! Anyway, we are packing Laura's agenda so we can do plenty of girl things. Sunday-- her family day. Monday-- Hang out at Laila's house and bake and relax with the kids. Tuesday night-- babysitter and us girls are going out on the town-- yaaaaa!!!!! Wednesday-- still up in the air but we will do something. And then sadly, on Thursday morning she must go back to the Big Apple-- so sad but I am soooo looking forward to hanging with Lo!!!!

This is a picture of Laura (blond in the middle next to me) and us about 14 months ago. Sorry Lai-- it was the only picture I could find.

Please don't flame me because the boys were not wearing helmets but here are some pictures of the boys skateboaring . Also don't flame me that Mia is sitting on a skateboard eating Doritos with Doritos juice all over her face-- still a very cute face :)

When I got home from work Kevin was working on our front yard which has been torn up since mid July so I am sooooo happy things are moving towards completion-- not for a while but sometime soon.

Mia lounging around watching daddy work.

Max enjoying hanging out with Kevin and Mia in the front yard.

Mia maneuvering her way through the trenched up yard.

Coming soon-- the post i told you I may post about that Kev was not pleased with me about. I think it has officially died down so I think it is time to post those picture-- as if some of you have not already figured out what the post is about:)


  1. LOVE the pictures...
    Mia is soooo small in the picture with your friends...
    It is okay without a helmet.. if you have boys you know that it doesn't always seem to get on thier heads...
    Mia is tooo cute..
    she just does whatever..
    Can't wait for the post..
    Have a Great Weekend..
    Love ya girly.

  2. someone wearing earrings. I looked at that picture and thought I do not remember Mia having her ears pierced and then I read down and thought I bet that is what it is:)
    Have a FUN weekend with your friend.

  3. I am so excited your best friend is coming to town. Do you ever get to go to Manhattan and have a week with her? Now that would be fun! :) Mia is adorable as always and I am guessing it is probably Mia's ear piercing that got Kevin upset. I use to draw "earrings" on my ears with markers and wear stickers hanging from my ears I wanted them so bad. When I was 5 my dad finally caved in. :) He will get over it!! Poor Dads. Have a great week.


  4. What fun Christy! I wish I lived closer! Tell Laura Hi for me and of course Laila too. Have a ton of fun and take lots of pictures!!!

  5. she is so cute. Glenys love doritos too!!

  6. I'm so happy that your friend is coming to town. I know you all are going to have a GREAT time.

    If the next post is about pierced hubby wasn't too please with me either after I got Ellie's ears pierced. It took him a few day's/weeks to get over it! Oh well, Mias looks adorable with her cute earrings! : )

  7. Christy,
    Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I'm feeling better. We found out from the paramedics that we got his heart started a few times and it was just too damaged to keep going, so I'm glad our CPR and AED were successful. I hope you have great fun with your friend. Old friends are the best. Like soulmates.

  8. Sounds like you are going to have so much fun with your friend! What a treat!! Love your phots and esp. of Mia eating Doritos. She's adorable even with Dorito-face! Have a fun weekend.


  9. I haven't been by in a while. Mia is growing into such a big girl! She doesn't seem to be having any trouble keeping up with the boys. :)

    Have a great time with your girlfriend!

  10. The photos of Mia lounging showed me that she is a girl after my own heart~ precious
