Oh yeah! My favorite novela is out on DVD. Not only that, it has English subtitles. I will finally understand what is going on. I gotta go order it!

My far

Friday I enjoyed a wonderful lunch with my two blogger friends. Our kids had a great time playing.
Saturday we watched the LA Galaxy practice at The Home Depot Center. You might think Bechham is my favorite player, but no, it is Mike Randolph
Then we went to lunch with our cousins. Siobhan went to Sandee's house until Jasso movie night, "The Return of the Invisible Man".
Sunday for Easter we hung out here, as usual. The kids found Easter baskets and hunted for eggs. We had a small dinner and relaxed at home. It was nice. No fuss. I actually LET Krystal drive. I figured if there was one day God would be really keeping an eye out... ha ha. She did okay!
Monday the kids and I started cleaning their room. It is hard having two little one's with a lot of stuff in one room. Eric came home and couldn't believe how messy the house was. Every-time I walked in their room I felt overwhelmed so they had to bring the stuff to me (still working on that project!)Bradley did some sanding on the kitchen cabinet doors. Siobhan had gymnastics, then we all went out to dinner.
Tuesday Eric worked half day. We picked up lunch and took the kids to Irvine park. We ate lunch
and Diego rode a pony. and we rode the train. Last night Bradley and I took the little one's to story time over at the new library. I might try and take Siobhan to the story time for older kids. She is really enjoying reading. I can't believe how much she can read by herself already.
Today? Well, I don't know yet. I have also enjoyed myself playing Lost in Blue 3 on the DS as well as Diner Dash 1, 2 and Flo on the Go on my mac. Ahhh, vacation!

I have put a lot of pictures up on Flickr. I usually put them all here but we have been taking photos like crazy. Want to check them out? Click here for Flickr!

A date?

I have a date with my husband tonight! I am so excited. We are going out. Probably dinner and a movie. I know that might not sound like much but we are both looking forward to it. We always do everything as a family, so this is exciting. Usually we go out together once in August (our anniversary), but this is just because. I can't wait. I am really excited!

Diego was playing in his room and I guess he got a little tired and fell asleep. He does look a bit comfortable though doesn't he?

How do you spell that?

My husband has wanted one of these dogs for a few years now. I don't know why he won't admit they are ugly. Yes, I know they grow on you. Of course I would love it and probably actually think it is cute. They are called Xoloitzcuintli (Mexican hairless) or Xolo for short.

The problem is they are pretty rare so it isn't easy finding a breeder. Heck, we had a hard time finding a good AKC breeder for Cucui. I e-mailed one place but haven't heard back yet. They make GREAT family dogs. (Great but ugly pets) ha ha Actually I do kinda think they are cute. Amazing I know!

Yesterday I dropped Siobhan off at school and went to work. At lunchtime I left to pick Siobhan up from school and drop her off at home (half day), and went back to work. I got off work, and went home and took Siobhan to sign up for soccer. When I got home I took K to find some track clothes. Finally, I got home for good. Today Eric got up early to take K to school so she could catch her school van to go down to San Diego for a track meet. I took Siobhan to dance this morning and came home and Eric and I took the little one's (B was at a track meet also) to the bookstore to get some books and out for lunch. We all came home and took a nap.

My friend Cheryl always jokes about how much I drive around. I don't think this is anything. When Bradley was in soccer too, that was driving around. We go to soccer in Orange, not far, but not right around the corner either. The thing is, I don't mind driving. When we go to Mexico, I drive. Basically whenever we go anywhere, I drive. We take my car, I drive. I have motion sickness bad, so I prefer to be in the drivers seat, literally.

Tonight is the Invisible Man for Jasso Movie Night. The kids are looking forward to it. It starts at 9 so the kids had to get their naps in (us too!). Hopefully K will be back soon and Eric can go get some snacks for tonight. We always have popcorn too. I think it might be a good night for a fire too, if we have a log.

Tomorrow, the plans are, NOTHING! I LOVE Sundays. I get up whenever, have some coffee. Do laundry (which I enjoy EXCEPT for putting them away) and I will go to the market and make something yummy for dinner. I so enjoy making dinner on Sundays. No rush! It can be something that takes hours and I find it fun. Only on Sundays!

Last night Eric and I watched Top Chief for the first time. I have decided that I am going to attempt to make homemade pasta. I mean, if it isn't that hard, why not. We eat lots of pasta and I have read it taste SO much better if you make it yourself. I will be sure to post pictures when I actually try it. I am looking forward to it!

(Eric, if it doesn't taste good, we can always order pizza!)

My friends Julie, Natalie and I are going to Vegas for our friend Beth's birthday in April. I haven't been on a girls trip in I don't know how long. Fun! I am not a big fan of Vegas, but as Julie says, anywhere you can walk around outside and get cheap drinks is a place to be. ha ha We are sharing a room and sharing the driving. I am really looking forward to it. We will head out early Saturday morning and enjoy ourselves and go out at night with Beth. We will come home Sunday. I plan to take LOTS of pictures. In this case what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas won't apply, I will have PHOTOS!

Oh yeah

Alright, yesterday I did the unthinkable. I pre-ordered Lost in Blue 3. The store said they should have it March 19th. 10 days! oh yeah. He told me "We will call you the day before to remind you". "Oh, no need I told him!" Please! There is NO way I would forget!

To tide me over I bought a couple of used games to tide me over. They were cheap! I got Trace Memory, which seems okay, and Jewel Match, which I love and kick ass at! My friends at work and I trade games so when I am done, they use it and I borrow somethig of theirs. Of course I won't need to because I will have Lost in Blue 3.

Yesterday Eric told the kids that the DS was like crack to mommy. He said "At least it is cheaper!". No kidding.

My next blog- Sergio from Sprint!

Still not at school

Siobhan missed a full week of school. This is the first time she has missed any school. She can't seem to kick this bug. Fever, then she is fine, then a fever again. grrr. I thought she was fine but now she has another low grade fever.

She says she wants to try soccer. Eric is afraid she is going to quit dance and then find out she hates soccer. Since she is a totally girly girl, he doesn't think she will like the running around and getting sweaty. She wants to try. She even told me she doesn't care if the uniform isn't pink! ha ha

Next year Diego should be able to play. He is going to tear up the field, it is already obvious!

We found out that Nan isn't going to be able to visit us like we thought. We are so sad. It has been almost four years. We miss her so much! We miss you all the time Nan! We could NEVER forget you!

Eric is going to meet a friend from high school tomorrow. That is pretty cool.

Ceasar & Chuy

This my new favorite show. Funny. Classic. Mystery Science Theater 2000 meets music videos. Check it out if you have LATV in your area. NOT for children, but then again, neither is MTV. Click on the link (post title). If you watch it, let me know what you think!


Ok, I admit, I often refresh flickr over and over. I comment on people's pictures. It is something I like to do. Today is a first. I refreshed about 4 times and there were NO NEW PICTURES. Finally it refreshed with only one new photo. Unbelievable. I can't believe it. Either something is wrong and Flickr is slow or people out there have stopped. It can't be. I honestly refresh it more often then anything else I do. It is the voyeur in me!

I don't feel like "talking" so your getting photos

This one is from quite some time ago!

Hey, I added a new link under my "Blogs worth checking out". Hawaiian Tropics, go click on it!

So guess I will be home today

Siobhan has a fever. She felt hot when I picked her up from daycare yesterday. I thought it would just "go away" like it has in the past. But, if you note the time of this post, you will see we were not so lucky. Eric was planning on coming home early but since I am the one who is up now (and has been for about an hour), there is no way I will be able to function tomorrow (today!) at work.

She has a bit of a cough too. I hope Diego doesn't get it. I am going to send him to Eric's mom just to keep him away. Plus she LOVES watching him. We need more medicine. I bought the melt-aways but Siobhan said she would rather have liquid. Ick! What a freaky kid! We need batteries for the remote too. I can't believe I actually figured out how to turn the tv on. I was lucky that the Dish Network and the surround sound were already on, otherwise I would have been lost.

I registered Bradley for his SAT's. I made K's DMV appointment. We finally got her birth certificate. I ordered it December 21st. How is that for a timeline! It came yesterday! (still feels like today). Siobhan is signed up for gymnastics and this weekend we can sign her up for soccer. I can't wait until Diego is old enough. He LOVES soccer. He is going to be good!

I better get back to the Princess. She has been up three times since I have been writing this. Good morning people!

Yesterday was my dad's birthday. I forgot. Of course I did. I always forgot my dad's birthday. I don't know why. I was always calling the next day,"Oh I forgot your birthday". Why should now be any different?! Wish I could call him though.

Last week our little Xochitl died in my arms. We got a call about 6:15am, a guy said he found my dog. I left right away. When I got there he had her in his sweatshirt on his seat. Said he found her by the side of the road. She was still alive, but barely. She died about 45 minutes later at home with all of us around her. I don't think she was in pain. We are certain someone took her because she was so far away and Cucui was still here. We are guessing she was hit by a car although she wasn't bleeding or anything. I can't believe she is gone. She was such a GREAT dog! We will really miss her!

We took Siobhan and Diego to LA for the International Children's Film Festival. It was a lot of fun. As you can see, they had fun drinking at the bar. We enjoyed a film starring Mr. Winkle. I knew that dog was real and still sat through the whole thing thinking "There is no way that dog is real". They gave us a Mr. Winkle calendar on our way out too. I put mine up at work!
