New Year's Eve

A good food report....Last night we had an excellent dinner. I was stuffed for the first time here. We are headed to the beach. We just got finished with a couples massage. How great was that!!!! Tonight there is supposed to be a big party and fireworks on the beach. That should be fun. Oh yeah, we played volleyball half the day yesterday and it was so so fun!!! We had sand from head to toe.

Dominican Republic


Wow...Today is our 4th day at the most beautiful place I have ever been. We are having a blast. I really don't know how to tell you how unbelievable this resort is. I'll try to take more pictures later. We have just layed by the ocean soaking up the sun the whole time. Chris did have a meeting for half of the first day. Today we are going to the market as a group and I am excited about that. Tomorrow we are going to get a couples massage and then back to the sand. I am really, really, really enjoying myself. Everything has way exceeded our expectations except the food. It is ok but not good. We are not starving though. Anyway, more later. I attached a photo before dinner last night. Sorry that is all I have for now. Sherry tell my babies we miss them and love them.

Where did the day go!!!

My Saturday is already over....I got the boys up and got everyone ready to do a little shopping. We hit a couple of stores before Jax's basketball game at 1:30. After his game we went to the grocery store (more on that later) then home to take showers and go to a birthday party at 5:00. We barely made it to the party on time. The boys had a blast. It was at the laser tag and arcade. Brooks didn't get to do the laser tag, but he had fun playing all of the other games. Of coarse, Jax wants to go back and take his daddy, who is in Northwest Arkansas filming another deer hunt for the fall hunting shows. Funny story...Brooks was on a motorcycle game just playing on it pretending to be actually playing when a kid came over and stood by him. The kid waited about 30 seconds and then came over to me and poked my leg and said "Do you own him?" I said "yes" and he asked if I would get him off so he could play. I laughed at that for awhile. Then at 7:30 when Brooks asked why he had to go to bed I said "because I am your mother and I own you." Kids say the funniest things.

Okay now about the grocery store. It is the greatest. I just got to tell you these people are smart. My kids only want to go to HEB because they give the kids these kid dollars at the checkout and they get to use them to buy prizes, and they have special carts that the kids get in and shut the door and play cartoons for $1.00. They have chefs demonstrating and sampling a different menu every day. I could go on and on but one of my new found favorite things (thanks to my husband) is scratch off lottery tickets. They are so much fun. I get a few tickets put the kids to bed and scratch away. So far I either break even or win a couple of dollars extra. Just a little pick me up at the end of a long day parenting 2 wild children all alone. Chris will be home tomorrow and I can't wait. He left Wednesday evening and so he has been gone long enough. Just doing his job. Ha Ha....he really is though.

"Nana Time"

Well, Nana just headed home. We all had a good time. It was fun to have company for the weekend. She took a load of Christmas presents home for us so we won't be so packed coming home. That was helpful. Now I need to finish up my shopping. I am on the tail end of it.

Not really too much happening around here to tell. We are going to have a quiet Monday I hope.

Cold Tuesday



It was a cold night. I think the low was around 40, maybe lower. We were talking about it last night and Brooks couldn't go to sleep without putting toliet paper blankets on his bulls and horses. He didn't want them to be cold while they were sleeping. It was so cute I had to share.

Well It should warm up and be a nice day just like yesterday. We got tennis rackets for everyone and went to the Activity Center and played a little tennis. It was so fun. The boys love it.

Basketball Game

Here are a few clips from Jax's 2nd basketball game. Today's game was such an improvement over last week. He is in blue. In the first one he is bringing the ball down.
