Okay... SO!

I picked my kids up from school this afternoon and on the way home we decided to drive by the iguanas. Iguanas you ask? Let me tell you.

There is this rock wall near our home where we ALWAYS see iguanas. They sit on the top of the rocks and sun themselves. We sometimes drive by in the morning on the way to school and sometimes after school. It's always a contest who can spot them first or who spots the most. Our record was 12 in one day!

After our drive by this afternoon, we had all the windows down in the car enjoying the nice 80 degree temperature and WHAM... BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. Eeks. A bee flew in the car.

Needless to say, no one really enjoys bees being in their car, but one of my little girls (Madde) is super afraid of bees. We ALL freak out, and start screaming. Meanwhile, Mr. Bee is buzzing around making the inside of the car his new home. I'm surprised I didn't crash the car into the sidewalk!!

After about 2 minutes of the windows down all the way and the A/C blowing full blast, the bee cruises right out my window. Of course he has to land on my shirt first and freak me out even more.

All's well that ends well. That was my adventure for the day. :)

I'm a lucky girl....

This year's birthday was one of my best birthdays ever. I am so lucky to have such a great family who makes me feel so special. My kids made me the CUTEST cards (homemade of course). I was spoiled rotten with gifts from my husband, mom and sister.

You know those things that you never buy for yourself because you always feel guilty? Those are all the things I got this year. Donna Karan perfume (why is it women always feel bad buying themselves such luxury items?), chocolate, make up, smelly good soaps, lotions, etc.

The best part of my birthday, though, was seeing all my babies with their cousins and feeling super loved by my family.

Yay! My new blog...

Okay, here goes. I'm new to this blogging world, but wanted to give it a try. I have to be one of those "moms" right off the bat and start with a photo of my kids from Halloween.

I'm the luckiest momma in the whole world. I have 3 amazing kids who are wonderful. (Not all the time, but MOST of the time..bwahah) Since today is my birthday, this blog is my birthday present to myself. My goal is to be more up to date on photos of the kids and keep a better diary of what they do day to day.

Stay tuned for more.... :)
