Birthday Celebration time!!!
GoGo and Papa bought the kiddos their first bikes!!!
Gam-Gam got Jaxon a kickass Roboraptor! And she got Madi a tea set and babydoll!
Jaxon was pretty scared of it at first...but now he really enjoys it!
Madi showed off her new teaset to Cousin David!
I can't believe how big Casey and David have gotten! It's insane!
And Uncle Jared......they love him.......and he loves them!
and here's some fun Daddy time! Check out that blue Texas sky!!!
My daddy came up from Wichita Falls. He seems to be doing better! Just have to get him to a cardiologist. soon. He brought the kiddos gifts too! They are so damn spoiled...lol...singing and dancing teddy bears and keyboards! They had a blast!
and last, but certainly not least....it's GIZMO! or emo....as the kiddos called him! It's Phylis's new puppy and he is a dream with the kiddos! Such a great puppy!

A while back, my lovely hubby decided that we should start doing measurements. Weight is just number. So he took my measurements on March 26th. And after my horrible weigh in, which was April 10th, he decided we should remeasure. So in three weeks, here are the numbers:
I lost 1/4" in my neck, I lost 1/4" in both arms, I gained 1/2" in my chest (imagine that...ugh....) I lost 3 1/2 inches in my waist, I lost 2 inches in my hips, I lost 3/4" in both thighs, and my calves stayed the same! So that was excellent news after that crappy day...LOL
Well, Today is Wednesday, and I had my weigh in.....I was super nervous, but I did great! I had nothing to worry about!!! I went from 253 to 244!!! OMG!!!! That's 9 lbs in 5 days....holy COW! I lowered my BMI 1.3 points...WOW! in 5 days!!! I'm not in the morbidly obese range on the BMI chart anymore..LMAO! I'm just obese now! HA! So hopefully I won't gain it all back when we go back to Texas tomorrow...lol...it's so hard to turn down home cookin!!! We're going to bring our bikes and the in-laws have an elliptical also...so hopefully I can keep my weight loss going! So....to date....I have lost a total of 36 lbs! SWEEEEEEEET! Just wanted to share! Hope everyone has a lovely week! I'll be back soon!
Here is Madi grabbing a few eggs!
Jaxon going for his loot!
These are the pics from the house! The Easter bunny popped by while the kiddos were down for nap, and this is what he left!!!!
I hope everyone had a great Easter!!!!

And finally....at 8:00 last night...I made my Mexican pinwheels. Our potluck got moved up to Thursday, thanks to the storms that are passing through Cali right now....so here's the recipe and some pics!
- 2 pkgs. cream cheese
- pickled sliced jalapenos (to taste)
- 1 large pkg ham lunch meat (I use oscar mayer, smoked ham)
- small amount of jalapeno juice
- 1-2 bunches of green onions (chopped)
- 1 package flour tortillas
- garlic powder (to taste)
- salt and pepper (to taste)
Soften cream cheese, slice onions, chop ham into small pieces, chop jalapenos into small pieces, add garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix all together. Add some jalapeno juice and mix some more! Spread onto tortillas and roll'em up! Let these sit in the fridge overnight! Take out and slice the next morning!
If you're worried about the spiciness of it all, then you can buy mild jalapenos. Here are the pics of the messy process....I tripled the recipe!
I'm dieting right now...so all the cream cheese is fat free! and it tastes exactly the same!
This is the ooooey goooey mixture...that's oh sooooo good!
I used four packs of the burrito size mission tortillas. I will cut them up in a few!
All cut up and ready to serve!! I even made Kylie her own little container full....she's going to be so happy!
Hope everyone has a great day!
All the kiddos minus the babies and the "older" kids...lol....They loved this ride!
Madi and Jaxon driving...how scary!
So you might be asking yourself....Where's Jaxon at????? All the kiddos (minus Barb's kids) are in this pic....but where's Jaxon.......check the pic below...you will find him!!
Crying like a wee little baby!! LOL! Taz gave him the creeps! LMAO! Poor baby....
This is my favorite pic of the day! Carson is such a sweet sweet baby boy...and he looooved the carousel.
The ride home....5 very exhausted kids...and two exhausted mommy's! Thank God Christina shares my love of Mexican food! LOL! El Pollo Loco got us home! HAHAHAH!
We hit a downpour on the way home! Check out the pic that Christina got!!
Thanks for the invite Amy! We had a lovely day!
