And Now A Matthew Moment

Here is a video clip of Matthew trying to get his Dad and brother to play "Power Rangers". We met and saw the Power Rangers at Disney's Hollywood Studios. So, now Matt is all about them. He likes to pose and do his arms and hands like Power Rangers. It is rather hysterical. I will post a video of that spectacle soon, too.

Hannah Montana say what?

Miley Cyrus legally changes her name
By Angela, CBB News Editor

Destiny Hope Cyrus is no more. The 15-year-old has legally changed her name to Miley Ray Cyrus.
The Hannah Montana star has been called Miley since she was a baby. The nickname originated from her father, country singer and actor Billy Ray Cyrus, when he realized that his little girl smiled all the time.

Since then, Miley is what her family and friends have called her. Miley decided that since everyone knew her by that name, that she wanted it to be legal. The singer chose the middle name Ray because she wanted the same on as her father.

I am having to save some pics to DVD in order to make room for the almost 500 pics I took on our 6 day vakay to Disney. Yes, I was a little shutter happy evidently. Ha!! I am still unpacking and trying to get things together. So, tomorrow if not the next day I hope to share some photos of our trip.

And now for something totally "random"! :) I went to the grocery store yesterday. Our fridge was empty and had some week old stuff in it.Yuck. Anyhoo...I got there and was soooooo happy to see that grapes, that's right grapes, are no longer ten dollars a pound (well, almost. They were up to about $4)!! They are down to $1.99 a lb. Yay!! My poor kids love the things and I had not been buying them because they had been so much. Ha! Doesn't take much to make me happy. He, he. Anyway. Maybe it is just me. But that was good to see. Yay, H.E.B.!

Have a great week, peeps!

We have returned.

We got back last night from our trip to the "House of Mouse"! We had a great time. We have a ton of pics to share. As well as many stories to tell!! It was a great vacation. Just me and the boys park hopping in Disney World!! Many memories were made. We are glad to be back in Texas though. There is no place like home!! I do miss the warm Florida weather we had. What is up with the cold and rainy stuff here? Stay tuned for new pics and posts!

Stressin'. Just a little bit.

Ok. So, we are leaving on Sat. morning for a week at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Knowing me, you would think no prob. she has been packed for weeks. NOT!! I have not packed a thing. I am excited!! I can hardly wait to go!! But, I have not been looking forward to packing. Ugh. I must get myself in gear people! What is wrong with me? Must start packing!! Other than that all is well here. On, Sunday we cheered on Sandi and Anna as they did the half marathon downtown. That was fun!! So, proud of my girl Sandi!! Tonight Sonshine Kids starts back up for Alex. Soon, spring soccer starts! This is already the middle of Jan. Man, time does not stand still does it?! Hope your new year has gotten off to a great start!!

In the first 8 days of '08, I have joined a gym. Yup. Me. I joined last Friday. I have worked out every day since. Love it. Feeling great. Props. go to Keri for keeping on me to try it out. Love ya for it girl!! See ya at the gym! Have sat down with Janelle (AUMC VBS Director for '08) and had our first official VBS meeting!! Yay. It is gonna rock. I am getting pumped about it. Went to see a movie. Yay! That rarely happens. Had a rockin' New Years Eve! Have gotten awesome news about a few births and even news of a few babies on the way! The boys went back to school today. Yay! They were ready and so was I. Alex especially loves school. Matthew is getting there. He'd still rather be at home. Speaking of the boys, they have been watching a ton of football games. Football is big around here. They love it!!! Can't wait for Super Bowl! And really I have just been trying to get back into a routine after the holidays!! I hope that you are all having a good New Year so far!!

My Favorite Things

Ok. So this being a new year and all I thought I would start posting (a la Oprah) some of my favorite things. Sorry, no give aways here. :) Right this minute, I am all about this new mascara by Cover Girl. It is called LashBlast. Love it! If you are like me (a girl) that has tried them all and still has not found the one...this one is high on the list. It works great. I have thin, stick straight lashes. This mascara has given my lashes a kick. Love it. Secondly, I have a new favorite CD that I just got yesterday. It is called Audio Day Dream by American Idol alum Blake Lewis. To me it is great pure pop music! It tends to have an 80s feel which I of course love. Very Erasure-y sounding at times. At the same time I hear Maroon 5, too. And of course he does his signature beat-boxing in it. Fun! Makes me wanna sing and dance. Most def. one of my favorite things right now!!

P.S. I Loved It!

I just got home from the movies. Went to see P.S. I Love You with my bff Sandi. Man, this movie was so mushy and gushy. Made me laugh. Cry. Smile. Like a warm fuzzy. Like curling up with a good book. Good feeling. Like a warm blanket on a cold night. A major chick flick for sure. Great soundtrack. Beautiful actors. Funny. Sad. Go see it. Take Kleenex. Buy the DVD for your fave gal pals. A must see. A most def. would see it again movie!!

Next, on my list of movies to see: Juno (love me some Jason Bateman and Michael Cera) and The Bucket List (love me some Jack Nicholson and Morgan "The Electric Company" Freeman).

Cheers, to a new year!

I hope that everyone had a safe and happy new year's eve. Our day was filled with getting both cars inspected before midnight. Kevin spent most of the morning and afternoon doing that. He left around 11 a.m. and was not done until about 3:30 p.m. He was not the only one trying to get a car inspected last minute. Lol! Then we just hung out at the house a bit. In the evening we went to The Coker's for a party. It was a kid friendly party. Brandi had an awesome idea to let the kids get glittered and glammed and party like "rock stars!" There was karaoke, silly string (I don't know who had more fun with that the kids or the grown-ups), the kids made their own noise makers (so crafty), played charades (parents acted out silly stuff kids do and the kids guessed. ex: picking your nose) ,they even had a dance party!! I wish I had, had a video camera. Matthew danced his pants off. Literally. His pants were too big and when he'd dance they would slide down to his knees. What a classic Matthew moment. Ha! We watched a fireworks display provided by the Coker's neighbors. I cannot forget to mention the food!! We had a ton. And it was all good! Thanks Shannon, Court, and Brandi. Yum-o! Then the Alvarado's helped the kids light sparklers. That was fun! Believe it or not all the kids including the grown-ups all made it to midnight (barely) and we all had a sparkling cider and champagne toast with a balloon drop!! Fun!! The best part of the night was the news that the Nichol's had to share when we got there...they are going to have a baby in 2008!!! We are so excited for them!!! To the Pagel, Ellis, and Railey families, we missed you guys. Happy New Year to ya. A specail thanks to the Coker's for throwing such a fun (even if it got kinda messy) New Year's bash!!! Can't wait until next year!!!

Kevin acting out "The Limbo!" during charades.

Alex shows off his rock star bling!

All the kids had fun with the sparklers.

Someone got Drew good with the silly string.

Balloon drop! Happy New Year!!!
