Trip to Boise...

We are back from our trip to Boise! Natalia had a competition in Nampa on Friday so we went up with my girlfriend Michelle and her daughter because she was in the competition too. Let me just say that we had a BLAST! We got to eat, shop, laugh, talk, and we loved every minute of it! It is so nice to get away with just the girls because we can eat and shop as long as we want with out the boys telling us no! It was so much fun! Thanks a ton Michelle and Kyndall for coming with us and letting us have such a great time. We will have to do it again and soon! Make sure you go all the way down this post to see all the great pictures. I took so many cute ones it was hard to decide what to put on here. Enjoy!

Natalia all done up and ready to go! This costume is so cute! She looks adorable.

They won so many awards for this dance it was so awesome! They won for their division. I ordered a dvd of their dances so I will put the video on here when I get it. This dance is soooo cute! They do such a great job.

Natalia getting on her eye lashes for the competition. I don't know why she even needs fake ones because hers are just as long.

Michelle and Kyndall getting ready for the competition. The girls did so well. It was awesome to watch them. It's always a long day but it is worth it at the end when they win awards.

Natalia and Kyndall in front of Limited Too at the mall! They had so much fun together. They got a free webkins at Limited Too when they spent $10. They carried them around everywhere after that.

Michelle and I waiting to be seated at the Cheesecake Factory for lunch! It was so yummy! We had just got done shopping all morning at the mall. We had such a good time. I probably spent too much money but it was worth it.

We had so much fun getting these t-shirts and taking our picture! Any of you that know my husband well will know that he absolutely loved this picture. It was so fun just letting our hair down and having a blast!

Almost 13 years....

It will be our 13th Anniversary on May 13. So I decided to take a few pics of us. It was really nice for about 15 minutes and then the weather drastically changed. I like this picture a lot I thought it turned out cute. I have to say that Natalia is the photographer of these photos. I got everything set up and then she would snap it. Anyway this is but a preview there will be more to come.
I like this one a lot but there are a few shadows from the tree.

This is one of my favorites but the wind was blowing behind us and made my hair kind of look weird but oh well.

New blog look...

I finally figured out how to change my blog by myself! That is a truly amazing deal for me!! Okay I did have some pointers come my way but I figured out a lot of it too. So I don't know how long I will keep this paper on here but I like the look for now. I do need to change my header and beware it may just be a picture of me since this is my blog and it is like a journal for me! Anyway let me know what you think of the new look or if I should choose a different color scheme.

I'm Ridin Man!

Here are the pics of Larry and Seth riding the other day. I can't believe how much Seth has grown because he is now too big for his bike. So it looks like he needs a new one sometime soon. Maybe when I win the lottery! They did have fun but the wind was blowing really hard. It was hard to get good pictures but when is it ever easy? Ryan will not get on the bike anymore. A couple of years ago he got on it and pulled the throttle all the way and then paniced and couldn't let go. To make a short story a little shorter he did a front flip off the bike and now he won't get back on it. Hopefully we can get him to ride again. Seth was about 3 when he started riding a motorcycle and was in a race when he was 4. He does like it a lot but he is not competitive at all and goes at his own pace not anyone elses! Larry on the other hand is obsessed with the sport. He has had a bike since we got married and has raced in about 12-15 races. He does very well and is very competitive. He loves to go fast and do all kinds of crazy jumps and tricks. Yes he has been hurt a lot. He broke his back when Seth was a baby but that didn't stop him from riding again. Crazy man!

My new wheels!

Well we went to Boise this weekend and traded the Tahoe in!!! I am a little sad because I love my Tahoe it was just too expensive to keep. We tried to sell it many times but couldn't get rid of it. So we bit the bullet and went to Boise and found the best deal we could get. Our payment on the new Honda Accord is $126 less a month plus we will save $100 a month in gas. So that is good news plus Honda's hold their value really well. We are excited it is a very nice car! The pictures aren't the best but you get the picture, right?! We had a good time away again. I do love to get out of here when we can. Larry and the boys got to do a little riding as well. I will post those pictures tomorrow.

Scooter Race!

I took this picture at the skate park the other day. It was nice for about 15 minutes then we started to get snowed on. It was really weird because I think that we had all 4 seasons in about a half hour. There was sun, rain, snow, and hail. I guess it is quite typical for La Grande but I think that I have had it with the weather. I need some SUNSHINE!!! The boys love the skate park. They both have a bmx bike, skateboards, and scooters. The can't get enough, but I tell you the boys that hang around that park have some filthy language and I absolutely do not want my boys to ever talk like that so I make sure they don't pay attention or listen to the other boys. Anyway I will get some more pics on here.

My model

I was playing around with my camera and Natalia is the best model I have. I for some reason can't figure out how to use my very expensive paint shop pro 12 photo program! It did not come with instructions and I am not very good at figuring things out on my own. I have to have instructions. Anyway I took some pictures of Natalia and I thought this one was very cute. She has very pretty features and her freckles are oh so cute! We are very bored around here so I think that tomorrow I am going to take some pictures of all of us just to post on my blog!

Surprise Flowers...

Larry surprised me with this basket of flowers the other day. I came home from work and he brings them out and says these are for you. I was like wow what's this for? He says just cause I thought you would like them. I was like that is so cute, and I gave him a big kiss. Then I thought about it for a few minutes and I was like: Was Safeway going to throw these away and you got them before they did? He says (with a sheepish grin) yeah, but I thought you would like them. I said of course I like them! Its the thought that counts, right! Larry is very sweet at times and he does think of me a lot. I do appreciate the flowers it was a very sweet thing for him to do. Anyway life has been crazy I have been a very bad blogger but not time to sit down and relax. Oh well I have about 2 1/2 hours of peace and quiet to myself! Yahoo!!!
