Padre was A Blast...

And one posting would not do this trip justice. Over the next few days I will try to give a little piece of the majic!

We had our flashlights in one hand and a drink in the other......this was our first day of Crab Hunting and the first day to the best vacation EVER! I never knew how fast those little suckers could run!!

Sooo Sweet

Thank you everyone for the fabulous Surprise Birthday Brunch. I am surprised that I could even be surprised!

Well, their pajamas are but not their personalities. Their sweet little faces look soooooo similar but they prove to be different as night and well....early afternoon. You see Katlyn is our little firecracker and very outspoken with her oh so sassy opinion. Kambel on the other hand is much quiter in how she expresses herself. Don't let her sweet little voice fool you though, when she does decide to speak out, she has no trouble getting the point across. She has a good mix of Katlyn and Sutton. It will definitely be intersting to watch her as she grows through the next couple years.

Oooops I forgot these......

From the unforgetable night downtown. Sorry Ty, everyone else thought my dancing style was funny......

The Sand Is Calling......

One More Week! We are READY.....especially Miss Kambel sporting her floppy beach hat! South Padre here we come.

Six More Months....

Untill we see you again. We all had soooo much fun having you here. I had really missed you April and now I miss you again. We will see you in December.......make room for the Shull Family!

The First Step.....

To my dream to have a garden right in my own back yard. We are starting little and once I learn how to manage more, we will add different fruits and veggies. I woud love to have all our meals homegrown and organic, with the security of knowing EXACTLY where it is coming from. Your own garden is so much more economically smart, and you can't get anymore organic than that!

Last Day of School

Another year finished Sutton. You are headed to the big 3rd grade. Great job my smart boy. You got all A's the entire year and the award, " Most Responsible Decision Maker" fits you perfectly. Keep up the fabulous work!

Big Girl Bed

It was THAT time. Kambel loved her crib but loved to climb out. We hadn't had a bad fall YET but knew the time was coming. We tryed to make it easy for her by having everyone say goodbye to "baby crib". Kambel waved her little hands but didn't have a clue of the milestone she was waving HELLO to. She actually has adjusted quite well! I still think she looks way too little to be in there......

I know you don't deal well with all of the mushy gushy stuff. It's hard for you to handle when I start sobbing to you on the phone and it's probably almost irritating that you cant understand what the hell I'm saying or why the hell I'm crying. You most certainly want to run when I hug you for over 5 seconds and tell you I love you over your shoulder. You dont get emotional and like Tyler you feel like it shows weakness. But none of that matters because I know you love me and have gone far beyond your comfort zones with me. Like I always say, you mean the world to me and I would be lost without a friend like you. Thank you for being Lotus but more importantly thank you for being lotus with an extra space in your heart for me.


I have to thank her for pushing, almost forcing me to love someone.......
It's extremely hard not having my mother here to look to for advice on how to be a mother myself. But if it wasnt for her leaving this earth I would not be where I am today.....safely with the love of my life. He is positively my soulmate and she is well aware of that. I'm sure it was all part of God's and her master plan for me. Thanks mom for exiting this earth to only leave me with absolute LOVE!

"Congratulations. You have made me so proud and surpassed anything that any parent could ever wish for. You always will be the brightest part of my life. Your character will take you far. I am confident that nothing will ever be out of reach for you".
