Saturday we went to Anthony's 5th birthday party at Siemon Park. We had a great time and took Anthony to Target after to get him a birthday gift. We went to Nikki's that night for dinner and an Amazing race marathon. She had 6 weeks of survivor and the Amazing race pre-recorded and we watched all of them through out the entire weekend.

So thursday I don't know what we did ugh(that is why I try to keep a journal how quick I forget). I know I called and booked Ray's resort in Mammoth and he is so excited about going . HE is going the last weekend of April with 4 other guys. He loves to fish!! I updated my blog and uploaded some pictures.

Wednesday was my cooking day and I made tri-tip and broccoli and Raima and I did some work in the trailer. Isaiah is still teething. He eats cereal twice a day. Joshua is doing good in pre-school and he can write his name better everyday. He loves to sing and dance and he loves to play the WII and play outside with his buddy Anthony. Pappy is getting ready to go to Missouri . He went to the heart doctor yesterday and got a good report. He doesn't have to go back for a year. The hearing aid doctor came out last week to pick up his hearing aid and fix it. He is scheduled for an Eye exam next week and the cancer doctor the following week. I also had to call his oxygen supplier to see if they can deliver to Missouri and they can not. So he has to purchase oxygen while he is out there and they will reimburse him. So I will call and get that set up some time next week. Raima and I are trying to get our trailer ready for camping. It is our 8th anniversary next week and we ALWAYS like to take a nice trip somewhere just the two of us. This year we have a 17 pound problem. HAHA his name is Isaiah and he can't get very far from his milk truck so we are trying to plan a family trip instead this year??.We were and still may go to Disneyland depending on how quick we can get this trailer fixed. If we do get the trailer fixed in time we want to try and go camping somewhere??We are thinking Lake San Antonio but if not Disneyland will defiantly do.

March 20th

Friday is Trash day and EVERY week this is what our trash can looks like we are super TRASHY!!!! I woke up and was so sore I could barely walk. LOL. I woke up and went to Pam's house so she could take Mark to the Dr. He hit his head on the rear view mirror of their van. She was concerned because he was dizzy and had a head ache. She took him to the DR and he has a mild concussion and she has to keep on eye on him. So far he is ok . After I left her house we went to Winco to grocery shop and I came home and made Supper Club. I took Wednesday off because Pam and Eve were out of town. I swapped for this Friday. So I made Bleu Cheese Burgers and grilled Zucchini. I delivered and came home. Isaiah had a low grade fever all day and is still teething. Poor Baby. Last night Sabrina and the kids came over. We attempted to watch a movie and Anthony and Joshua played around. We chatted until late in the night.

First I wanna say LESSON LEARNED-!! Henley's was able to recover most of my photos but I defiantly learned a big lesson. I was very sad to thank that I lost all those pictures SO fast! I am going to purchase an external hard drive today and back-up all my pictures. While I have most of them on CD. I do not have them ALL. I am going to make it a priority to upload 2-3 times a week. Anyhow LESSON LEARNED. I have heard it from too many people this week about photo protections and they are ALL right. I am taking good advice and fixing the problem TODAY-!! Thank you. Also NEVER hit format on your camera! It was a very expensive mistake.

ON to my daily journal. Thursday we went to Anaheim and you all know why?? DISNEY!!! WhewWHOO... We had a great time. We went to help "celebrate" Megan Goudge's 5th birthday. It was a really fun day. We did a a lot . We went with the PRO Pam and her side kick PRO Eve. They are the best. We either had a fast pass, a baby switch pass or a serious plan for everything we did. FUN!!
It's a small world was Isaiah's first ride. We also rode Winnie the pooh,"Crazy Train",haunted mansion,star tours,Buzz light-year blaster,space mountain,Peter Pan,Autotopia. Joshua and I rode Space mountain together and I screamed SO loud. I don't think I have been on that since I was like 13.Joshua loved it . Joshua is 44 inches and he had a great time. He can ride mostly every ride now. It is so much fun once they reach that 42 inch mark !!! I had my first Mint Julep and many other fun things through out the day. Thanks Pam and Eve for inviting us. He had so much fun Joshua was asleep before we left the parking structure.

March 17th

Caleb Kern County Science Fair.Tuesday was a very busy day. I woke early and went to MOPS and it was GREAT. We had Norman Wright speak which was a huge privilege as he is a well known Christian author and Counselor. I absolutely loved him. He offered some books after and because I am a READER now LOL. I purchased a few and am excited to start them. Tuesday afternoon I went to Rabobank arena to see Caleb get a his award for the Kern County Science Fair. Congratulations Caleb. Tuesday evening was another one of my favorite days of the month Book-Club. We had a Green feast and hung out and chatted. I did accidentally hit format on my camera at Book-Club and erase over 500 pictures from my memory card. With a tear. I hope they can be recovered I dropped it off at Henley's this afternoon and he will let me know by tomorrow what he comes up with. I had around 300 backed up but the rest were not. Our trip to Big Bear and 9 of my 365 days lost. I was really sad. Raima volunteered in Joshua's class Tuesday and Wednesday. Joshua loves it when his dad goes to school with him.

Monkey Munch

Monday We went to University Park after school so Joshua could play a little and burn off some energy and then I went to Eve's to meet with the Snobby Sisters to make Monkey Munch and dip pretzels. We had SO much fun. Pam and Eve are great friends and super fun to hang with. Megan and Gracie I think took the cake with their backyard fun. LMAO> Eve gave us our brisket that she had been brining in the bottom drawer if her fridge for 10 days. This year we had home made corned beef and cabbage for St. Patrick's day. It was very good . Thank you Eve....

Today Nicole came over in the morning and I went to the Credit Union while she was here with Isaiah to get a new ATM card. Then I picked us up some lunch at Farmer boys. I know I cheated!!! March hasn't been a very discipline month. Then I came home and Nicole helped me ALL day in the house. I packed up some of Isaiah clothes that don't fit and brought out some bigger stuff. We tackled my massive laundry pile and hung out and watched the View. I went to the Dr at 4pm for my back and he gave some muscle relaxer and pain pills. Linda came over this evening and Raima is fixing the light on the ceiling fan...

March 1st

I love a Rainy day.Sunday we hung out with my parents and packed up and came home. We had a fabulous,relaxing weekend. Pappy stayed out at Aunt Carols all weekend and said he had a nice time. When we got home Isaiah cried really hard for a couple of hours. we think he might have gas,constipated or teething. We gave him some Mylcin drops-a cold rag to chew on and an ivory suppository. He still hasn't pooped? He is still chewing on his whole hand( and the teether) and is burping like he drank a bottle of bubbles? I don't really know what is wrong but he not Happy. Hope he feels better tomorrow. We finally got him to sleep around 11 p.m. and I hope he has a good night.
