Happy Birthday to Me!

Melt my heart!

I love my new Whirlpool Gold
I just had my blog printed. I only did from jan-June because of amount of pics. I am not to satisfied. All the captions are mixed in with the paragraphs so it doesn't make since. NOT too happy about that at all. What's the point of adding any captions to pics?
See, no captions with pics
Kyli was so close to having money for her ipod touch that Nanis spotted her some $. Kyli has a lot of cleaning to make up to Nanis.

My bday gift from my besties
I got some money for my bday so I went on a shopping spree. How do you like the turqouise doors? I bought the mat to match.
new pillows

Thanks Amanda! Love it! Brandi got me a new scarf and I bought new clothes and a MK necklace

My sweet kids brought me gifts to school. We also had a Texas Tech cupcake cake. So sweet of the parents that put that together
Kyli's latest buck. Go Kyli!
On Saturday me, mom and Brandi had a girls day. We shopped all day. It was awesome. I had 3 birthday cakes and still managed to loose 3/4th of a pound. I have lost 5 1/2 total. Still need to loose lots more. I am hosting bunco tomorrow night. We will play LCR instead of bunco. I am so greatful for the rain the last two days. We so desparately need more to fill up these lakes. My dad will be 60 on January 30th so we are celebrating on Saturday. Have a blessed rest of the week and weekend.

So Kyli wants an ipod touch so bad. We decided not to get them one for Christmas because I think Kenna is too young. We are at the point that whatever we buy for one, we have to buy for the other because they want what each other have. We have decided to let Kyli buy one with her own $. She can't get it out of her piggy bank or her savings. She has to earn it. Chris told her if she could come up with $150 then he would spot her $50. She only needs about $80 more. Kyli is such an awesome helper. Today she cleaned my shutters, bathroom, folded towels, cleaned her room, washed Raider and went grocery shopping for me. With Nanis help of course. My mom had to go to the store and since my list was just a couple of things I let her take my list and get my groceries. Thanks Nanis!
On Thursday after school Kenna wanted to make a cake since Kyli was hunting and she didn't get to go. So of course, I agreed!

Upwards basketball started Saturday. I coach both Kyli and Kenna's team. It is so much fun. I only got pics at Kenna's game because I was to busy coaching Kyli's team. I really get excited and into it. I always have a headache after Kyli's game! Kenna scored 4 points and Kyli 10.

On Friday Brandi's kids came to stay. They were so good at the bball games. They were awesome for Nanis on Saturday.

On Saturday some friends to me to Chili's to celebrate my birthday a little early. I am so blessed to have such wonderful friends!
Kim, Christina and Sandy
Crystal, Tonya and me
I got my new Whirlpool Gold Dishwasher finally and I am LOVING it! My hands were getting so dry and cracked for having to wash dishes. Man, we with dishwashers are spoiled! The kids are off tomorrow but I have inservice. UGH! I can't complain though because I had a 3 day weekend. I am just jealous cuz kids get a 4 day weekend. I am looking forward to this weeked because my birthday is Friday and me, mom and Brandi are going Saturday to celebrate ALL day. My bestie, Crystal, is renting the house next door because they sold their house and are going to rebuild. They have already started moving in but will start living there this weekend. I am so excited!! Have a blessed week!

Kyli's Project that Chris Did For Her!!!!!

Happy New Year! I hope 2012 is treating everyone well so far. I have lost 3 3/4 pounds in 9 days. I weighed myself on January 2nd and about died when I read my weight. So needless to say this momma is changed her ways. I have about 11 more pounds to go. I can do it because I have done is so many times before. It just gets a little harder the older I get.

Kyli had a project to she had to do that used square cm instead of Square feet. She did not quit understand the project of drawing a house that had to have bedroom, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. So Chris decided he would help. Well, this is a project that Chris should write his name on cuz basically Kyli "assisted."
Look how detailed Chris' plan is

KB chilling. She is so tired
I love my new Michael Kors watch my in-laws got me for Christmas. I have the best in-laws in the world! You all would be so jealous of me if you knew how fabulous they were.
We have a 3 day weekend thanks to the stock show. woo hoo! So excited! Upwards Basketball also starts this weekend and I coach Kyli and Kenna's team. I pray that I can stay calm! I am also meeting some of my girls for dinner to celebrate my upcoming birthday. My twinkie and I will be 36!!!!! Time flies!
