I'm not so sure what is going on for the rest of the weekend here. I know I've got to get my baking done. Which I really wanted to start yesterday, but never got around to it. I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday.

The photo above he is pinning the kid he is going against. He won this match by getting that pin. It was a very long day that is for sure. Our team came home with a lot of trophies and that makes me happy. They really give it their all.Well, I'm going to go for now. I need to get some rest. I really couldn't sleep that good last night. I also have a dr. appt this afternoon to check the stitches. I will hopefully be back later tonight or tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great day.

Bonnie Rose had this posted on her blog today so I decided I could not sleep, why not do it. So here it is: 1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot Chocolate! 2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? He wraps them of course! 3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? We have colored lights on our tree and everything outside 4. Do you hang mistletoe? No 5. When do you put your decorations up? It is never the same every year.Just whenever I have the time or my kids finally say " Our we ever going to put the tree up?" lol . This year my dd took control and got the tree up and we started decorating on Wednesday. 6. What is your favorite holiday dish? I really don't know if I have a Favorite dish, but I love lasangna 7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child: I always remember my grandmother coming to stay with us the day after Christmas and it was always something that I just loved. She would stay with us for 2 months. After a month my grandfather would come and stay for the other month with her. That was the only time each year we got to see them unless we drove to NY (we lived in FL) in the summer to visit. 8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? This is a little fuzzy,,, I think my I was about 9 and it was a year that my parents decided to get all 5 kids new bikes for Christmas. You should've seen my dad trying to get all these bikes together in the middle of the night. Very noisy. 9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? We usually open one gift on Christmas Eve which is an old family tradition. I don't really know why we do, but we do. 10. How do you decorate your Christmas tree? My tree is a mish mosh of everything. It does not have a theme. It is covered with everything that my kids made while in grade school for Christmas and ornaments that me and the kids would make while they were growing up. 11. Snow! Love it or Dread it? Don't like snow... don't like winter, give the sunshine and the hot summer (no humidity, please!) 12. Can you ice skate? I could when I was younger. Now I would probably fall all over the ice. 13. Do you remember your favorite gift? I do! It was a beautiful blonde haired doll that spoke french. The dolls hair was pretty and you could make it long or short by pushing a button in her head. lol I don't remember what she was called, but she was my fav gift when I was younger. 14. What's the most important thing about the Holidays for you? For me, its about giving. And it doesn't have to be a gift. I try to show my kids that you can give in many different ways. Donate your time. Help someone in need. The gift of giving. 15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert?I want to say my favorite dessert is Bonnie Roses "Sex in a Pan" but I don't have a clue what it is. So I will have to go with my grandmothers ribbons. I don't know what they are really called, because my grandmother always called them ribbons and on her old receipe cards she even titled it Ribbons! When I make them next week I will post photos. 16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? I love just spending time with the family and friends. 17. What tops your tree? I have this beautiful angel all lit up on the top of my tree. She has been topping my tree for over 20 years now. 18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Giving, that's a no brainer. 19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? I saw mommy kissing Santa Clause. I just love that song! 20. Candy Canes? I love them.. mostly cinnamon but I also love peppermint.

And if I get a chance do some grocery shopping. I know my list is small but I have a lot of chores that I' ve been overlooking and just need to be done and this is my only weekend to get it done. So everyone have a great day!

1. That I actually woke up this morning.2. I enjoyed my first cup of coffee this morning. 3. I enjoyed a 45 min. nap this afternoon (really needed that). 4. I received a wonderful phone call from a new wrestling mom. 5. Talked with my sister Tracy this afternoon. The rest of my day was pretty stinky, lol. These were the only 5 things so far today that I actually enjoyed. So sad,,, (boooo whoooo). On another note..... I went to pick up my glasses! ugh... I went to the eye doctor about 10 days ago and apparently I'm almost blind in my left eye. This really does stink! I've had almost perfect vision most of my life and I did notice that in the last, say,,, 5 months it getting worse. So here is a wonderful photo of my new glasses that I just can't use to wearing and I get a headache after wearing them for about 30 mins. This is going to take some time I see.. (pun,,)
Ok everyone, Hope you all have a wonderful day!

This one again, is of Andre' Agassi ( I hope this is not the same one that I posted yesterday, I think I'm losing my mind) at the US OPEN 2006. The journaling reads: This is the face of Andre' Agassi. To most people he is just another tennis player, but to me he is a tennis LEGEND! His FACE, his SMILE, and his tennis GREATNESS have been exciting us for 20 years. This year Danny and I were determined to get to the Open, we had to see him, even if we had to watch from the courtyard on the big screen outside. This was one of the most thrilling matches I've seen. I was on the edge of my seat hoping that he would win this and he did. Being at the US Open at that moment is one of the highlights of my life and I will never forget it.
Of course these photos are from the big screen in the court yard. I can't believe how great they came out. Well, off to do some more laundry, take a shower, go to work(ugh), do more laundry, get ready for my parents meeting with my wrestling parents and my body sculpting class (which I don't think is really working, lol). Have a Great Day.
Tuesday, November 28, 2006
This is one of tennis great Andre' Agassi! I just love him. Danny and I were so happy that we got to go to the Open this year and watch a ton of awesome tennis. These pictures are (believe it or not) from the HUGE screen outside the arena by the food courts. I think they came out pretty good.Ok, I really wanted to make this short and sweet today, lol. I hope everyone has a TERRIFIC Tuesday!
Monday, November 27, 2006

I was able to finish up 3 layouts last night and hopefully I will take photos today and get them posted here tomorrow. I guess that is it for me right now. I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday!

Well blogger has finally let me post these photos. Unbelievable. This is DJ (17) and well.. as posted yesterday, he is trying to get down to 135 lbs for wrestling this year. I don't know if that is going to happen, but he is already down to 145.Here is Joseph (15), and as you can see... he needs to gain weight to wrestle.lol... The absolute lowest weight for High School Wrestling is 96 lbs and he weighs 100 with all his clothes on. Plus, they haven't even started really training. I'm not sure he is going to make this year again. Last year the coach stepped on the scale with his toe just so he made it. lol This kid eats, and eats and eats, I wish I had his metabolism I would be a stick! 2peas challenge for today:What are you fixing for Thanksgiving? re food: Well it is just me, hubby, and the kids. No one else is ever here anymore because they all live in Las Vegas. My dh's sister always goes to her one of her friends for the last 9 years and we haven't talked to his brother in about 7 years. So whats for dinner? Well of course we have Turkey, Stuffing, Potatoes (mashed and sweet), gravy, broccoli, asparagus, corn, cranberry sauce, of course there is apple cider, biscuits and dinner rolls. When everyone was here I would also do Italian foods.. Lasagna, meatballs, sausage, chicken cutlets, garlic bread. But I don't anymore. Then there is the desserts: we have chesse cake (I make from my grandmothers receipe), chocolate cream pie, and a walnut cake. I would make pumpkin pie, but no here likes it.That is pretty much it. My dd is already hounding me to make walnut cake it is one of her fav's. Thats it for me! Have a great Saturday!

I was going with a natural theme...

This is an old motorcycle and side car. My husband and I love theseDanny standing in front of a beautiful old war plane. This plane is all chromed out. Has a wonderful picture of a beautiful woman on the front. (see below)Sorry,, I know that it is hard to see the picture but it is so Beautiful! I loved this plane. I think it was my favorite at the show.2peas challenge for today: Complete this sentence: I have numerous passions in my life. They are___________,________________ and ________. (elaborate if you wish). My passions in my life are my family. They are wonderful, loving, annoying at times, supportive, creative, funny and just keep me on my toes all the time. I am also very passionate about wrestling. Not that crap that is on TV (that is just garbage). I mean Olympic wrestling, greco-roman wrestling,freestyle wrestling and scholastic (folkstyle) wrestling. I just love it! It is something that my kids have been doing since they pretty much could walk. I also love scrapbooking, this is a time for me. It is peaceful in my room where I can hopefully be creative for me. It gives me joy.Wishing everyone a TERRIFIC day!

Yes, it is Wednesday again and boy it still seems like I have done nothing all week. I don't know what it is lately. Could this be a sign of depression???? I don't think I'm depressed. I just don't feel like my normal self. Maybe its the weather changes. Maybe I'm just tired. I'm not sure what it is but I need to snap out of it really soon. Wrestling season will be starting in about 5 weeks and I'm not even prepared! This is not like me. I usually have everything all printed out, everything organized. Lists ready. I'm behind. Need to catch up. Now this is not the only thing I'm behind in. I need to complete my CJ that needs to be mailed out by Saturday. I'm almost done... but it's still not all together. Just another thing on my mind that is not finished. I really haven't spent a whole lot of time cleaning this house either. It might start walking on its own soon. lol. I did however order all my photos the other night. Can we sale awesome price!!! I them done for 1 cent each plus shipping. I did 205 prints and it cost me $9.80 including the shipping! Can't beat that. I'm actually going to go on this site again and see if my coupon will work again to order about another 300 prints that I should just get done especially at that price! Can't beat it! If you are interested in the site and coupon code let me know....
This is a marine helicopter that actually goes on missions. Stand next to this thing you won't believe how huge it is. It can carry 19 people, has machine guns on the side. Pretty awesome to look at.Here are 4 planes putting on an air show. Incredible how close they are to each other.Tomorrow I will try to load some more pictures of dh at the airshow. Blogger is being picky today. 2peas challenge: What are you in the middle of lately? Well... pretty much everything. I'm in the middle of cleaning. In the middle of doing my cj. And in the middle of trying to get my wrestling stuff organized for the up coming season.Hope everyone has a wonderful day.
Tuesday, September 26, 2006
Remember 2 weekend's ago Hubby and I went to the air show??? Blogger wouldn't let me upload the pics. but today they have. So here are just a couple of photos.Me and hubby on the shuttle ride to the airshow! (I look horrible,lol)Hubby sitting in an actual glider. The other guy is an instructor for gliders,(which my husband is thinking about doing)Hubby sitting comfortably in the glider. When the hatch is closed and you are not in the air gliding.. it gets very hot in there.Hoping tomorrow I will be able to post more photos. Hope everyone has a Wonderful day!
