"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

My little Guinnie Pig!

About a month ago I got a letter in the mail from UCR letting me know that they were doing a study with the baby einstein dvd and how they affect little kids. they have to be between 18-24 months old. I decided to call and when I found out that I would be paid $25.00 at each visit and I'll end up going 4 times, I figured it would be a fun thing for me AND Trevor to go do. So the first time we went I filled out a bunch of paperwork and Trevor played with some toys. then we went into another room and he did some activities. The guy set out a bunch of different pictures and asked Trevor to pint to certain ones. He did pretty good. There was other activities too and he did well also.
The second time we went he played on the floor for a little bit and then went and did the picture thing.

We've only been two times but they gave us a dvd to watch five different time in between visits and I have to monitor him and write down things he does.
If anyone is interested to get paid to go watch your kids play let me know and I'll get you the number. By the way they video tape parts of it too. Maybe he will end up on a DVD. That would be cool.

Beach Trip!

I cannot believe it has been 3 years since i've been to the beach. Both of my kids have never been to the beach and i figured it was about time. they both loved it and had so much fun. Trevor wanted to be in the water ALL day and Hollie loved to play in the sand and cuild castles. she liked the water too but not as much as big "T". We went to Newport and it was a litle crowded due to spring break. I'm thinking of going back again maybe in a couple weeks. Anyone wanna go! Let me know. Lance had gone fishing AGAIN that night so on the way home we stopped off at the Huntington Beach pier and went and found him. It was fun.

Kids are so cute!

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY? (written by kids)You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.-- Alan, age 10
No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.-- Kristen, age 10

WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.-- Camille, age 10

HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.-- Derrick, age 8

WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?Both don't want any more kids.-- Lori, age 8

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.-- Lynnette, age 8 (isn't she a treasure)
On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that Usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.-- Martin, age 10

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING SOUR?I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.-- Craig, age 9

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?When they're rich.-- Pam, age 7- *This is my personal favorite*The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.- - Curt, age 7
The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.-- Howard, age 8

IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.-- Anita, age 9(bless you child)

HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?-- Kelvin, age 8

HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck.-- Ricky, age 10

Gone Fishin'.....Again

Did I mention that Lance had an obsession with fishing. He went AGAIN last night to the Huntington Beach Pier and caught a leopard shark. He said there was alot of people that caught them that night. It's not very big but he is so pretty. Trevor love to watch it. he also caught a star fish. Don't ask me how. but he well we will call it a she... she is really pretty too. she is like a purplish color.


So the other day I decided to give Trevor a hair cut and at fist I was gonna buzz a mo-hawk but then decided to just shave it all off and suprise his daddy. Lance is always telling me to shave his head and i always said no cause I like to spike or give him the fo-hawk. Well i gave in and decided to buzz it all. I think he looks like a little boy now. He is just too cute. Now he REALLY looks like his Daddy!

It was a nice day!

Usually when it's nice outside which latley it has been I will open the door so the kids can go in and out when they want. the other day they were being really quiet so I snuck my head out to spy and they were both sitting on the bench talking to eachother. I got a couple of pictures of them with out knowing But then they caught on and then Hollie got mad.

Gone Fishin'

Lance has REALLY been addicted to fishing latley. His new favorite is fishing off Huntington beach pier. He doesn't catch much worth bringing home but check out the crab he caught. It was the ungliest thing. He was gonna try to cook it. but then it died and sat for a while and he then wasn't feeling it anymore.


Easter was fun this year. Hollie is understanding the whole easter bunny deal. They each got baskets. which I for done two days before easter and had hidden.
