This Easter was Awesome!!! My parents had all the grandkids over for A Easter Brunch. When we got there, my mom had prepared some great food for us to chow down on. my kids love cinnamon rolls. Good choice Mom. Then we dyed easter eggs that got a little crazy but the kids had a blast. After they were all done dying the eggs, the men went out and hid them.

The Destination is......

Well yesterday was a great day for our family. James my younger brother got his (well waited for) mission call. The mail comes at exactly 3:30 in the afternnon. So James, My Mom and myself were just waiting and waiting to see that white mail truck pull up. When it finally did, My Dad happened to pull up right behind it. So my Dad got the mail. Well did he get it or not. We weren't quit sure. My Dad was pulling up the driveway, when he stuck this Big White Envelope out the window. HURRAY!!!!!!!! WE all celebrated for the letter had finally arrived. James and i got on the phones calling all our brothers and sisters. Telling them the great news, and to hurry on over so we could open up the letter. An hour later( the suspence was killing us my mom and myself that is, James didn't seem that interested, I think he was nervous) Everyone showed up and James got to open up his mission call. My sister got it on video if you want to watch it. Her blog is So where is he going????????? FRANCE!!!!!!!!!!!! Yah my little Bro gets to go live in France for Two years. I'm sooo excited for hIm. James really wanted to go to Italy. So for him to get a call to go to France is just crazy. He's really excited. He departs on June 11.
So until then we are going to hangout as much as possible. Because we are really going to miss Jameson. He is the life of the party. He is also a great help when i need someone to watch the kids. James we will truly miss you, but are so excited for you to go and serve the lord in the great France!

Update #2

Another month down. It has been Two months since i started eating right and working out. And i have lost a whopping 25 pounds. I have another 15 pounds to go. I must say, the very beginning was really easy the pounds were just falling off. But the last couple weeks i 'm not losing much. So i guess i'm gonna have to start working out harder and longer. NOT FUN! My sister in law Elena got my and my other sisters all one month free pass to golds gym so i have been going, the past week. That should be fun. And i get to work with a personal trainer on Thursday. ( i hear they kick your butt) wish me luck. Well, until my next update, i have to get my body ready for swimsuit season!!!!!!
Oh and here is my adorable nephew Drake. He's getting soooo big! i love this baby!!!!!!
