Dear bloggy friends,
These last few weeks have been a big change for me, work wise and raising three kids, and my time is so limited. I am having to set priorities and my blog, sadly, is not a priority right now. I will keep updating as often as I can, but it will most likely be every two weeks or so. Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful day and remember to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you!

Soccer Pictures!

(Not soccer, but a cute one of my little man!)

OK, here ya go! Enjoy the soccer pictures from Spencer's first game ever! Very exciting! The game started out with both teams making 2 goals right away! And the other team was HUGE next to our team! They were definitely the older kids in the U8 league! But our kids did a great job! The games was suspended for awhile due to lightning strikes. We had some weird weather yesterday. The last half of the game was so exciting! Alas, we did not win, but we only lost by one point! Good job, Lions! Can't wait until next week! Jake scored his first goal, in his first is our game! Uncle Brian, coach, was so thrilled! Joe is our assistant coach. He LOVES it!

*Pictures coming soon & Weekend Links

(Sentiment "stolen" from :love her quote cards!!!!)

OK, OK, I'm still here....can you believe I have NOT downloaded the pics from my camera in Sept yet? Yikes! Man, this "work" thing sure puts a damper on my real life! Ha! Not to mention all the doctor appts I scheduled for us in September...not sure why I did that....4 more to go this month, 4 down already?!? And tomorrow is Spencer's FIRST soccer game! Go, Lions!!! Can't wait to see it!

We're all fine here, enjoying school and life. Spencer adores first grade! His "low" of the day (every night, we say our highs and lows of the day) is always "leaving school"! He has lots of friends, a teacher who enjoys him, and he likes learning!! Cooper is liking pre-school and going to Miss Michelle's. He says he goes to two schools! Kendall is a happy girl at Miss Michelle's. She claps when we pull up to her house. That makes this working mama feel MUCH better. Of course, I'd rather be home with her, but knowing she is loved and happy makes it bearable. Her friend Sophia is back, too.

I've been itching to do some scrapping lately...actually took pics of some of my pages..but have downloaded the pix yet. Truth is, my new phone has my email and facebook, and so I have not been on the computer as's an addiction, those "crackberries". Hee-hee..I took a picture of it as one of my picture of the days....

Haven't not forgotten the links....I save posts I read if I think you might enjoy it, so let me know if you do! Getting close to my 300th post. Wowee!!! Maybe I should do a giveaway! stay tuned!!!!

COOL new site for ideas!!

OK, so you don't scrap, you might LOVE this idea...I love it, too!!!!

Apple cider vinegar and all of it's healing properties....personal note: Joe and I chugged some yesterday and FEEL a lot better today!!!! Doesn't taste great, though...

Happy Weekend! Tell someone you love them right now!!!!

Happy birthday.... my dear, sweet Auntie Emese!!!! I know you read my blog, so I wanted to make sure I sent you a birthday wish all the way to Italy!!!! I love you very much and can't wait for you to be closer soon! Have a SUPER day!!! :-)

Weekend Links*********

Hello,'s been a long (so tired of changing my schedule with the kids.....), not a lot of sleep, busy (Bunco, doctor's appt in Modesto and Chuck E Cheese trip for the kiddos) and just emotionally drained for many reasons. Is it summer vacay yet???

But I am here with a few links, sorry no pix, my 365 project is lacking...I think I can dig up a few pics for the last few days...Spencer's soccer practice, my new phone (Blackberry...finally catching up..somewhat...with the times!LOL)...but haven't downloaded the pics in a while...
ANYWAY, just need some more sleep and I'll be all better!

Thanks for your sweet comments on Brandy. Even though I didn't know her all that well, I saw her kids almost everyday for the last 2 years (since they are Miss Michelle's with my kids) and we'd post things on each other's wall and tag each other on facebook. Whenever I saw her in person, she was so friendly and positive. She truly was a special person, and her funeral last night illustrated just that. It was packed, with so many people sharing inspiring stories about her, and ended with a standing ovation for Brandy, for a life well led. Way too short, but she did a lot in her 31 years! Makes me think, what have I done??? Not enough...need to get living....

So, here's a few links to brighten your day:
A new magazine about families....looks interesting

Got a printer? Need some art? Free art!

Creative family blog and up the printer here!

So many bakers, some bad mistakes....cake wrecks! (thanks, steph, for the funny suggestion!)

I know many of you aren't locals, and here's a nice story our local paper did on Brandy.

Happy WeEKeNd!!!!!!!
