Our Christmas Tree this year! Lil' Tad decorated it & was so proud! :)
Now I just need to get on the ball & wrap up some presents to put underneath it!


Okay - a few days late for Saturday's Photo Hunt, but at the rate I've been going lately... this is good for me! :)

Happy Holidays!!

♥ Thirteen Facts about Froggie Mama's Hubby ♥

1. He'll turn the big 3-0 on Saturday!
2. We have been ♥ together ♥ for 10 years & married for almost 5!
3. He has 1 older brother, 2 older sisters, and 1 younger sister.
4. His youngest sister was born the day before he was! They are 11 yrs apart.
5. He's a native Texan. Born and raised in the same city! *Yeehaw*
6. Hubby is a BIG poker fan & is pretty good at it! Don't be surprised if you see him on the World Poker Tour someday! hehe :)
7. He also enjoys playing pool, helping coach Lil' Tad's soccer team (undefeated by the way! Okay... they don't keep score, but the parents do! ha!), fishing, doing puzzles, riding 4-wheelers, & spending time with his family!
8. I love his sense of humor and playfulness! He likes to joke alot & is always trying to make people smile! He's definitely a *people-person!*
9. He played soccer from 6 yrs to 18 yrs old until he hurt his knee. It still bothers him from time to time.
10. He's hoping to go back to school in the near future. He's mentioned about becoming a High School Coach/History teacher. I think he'd be awesome at it! :)
11. He is horrible about falling asleep on the couch at night! And trying to wake him up is a HUGE chore! ha! He is such a deep sleeper... or he just like to ignore me! His alarm could go off for 30 minutes without disturbing him!
12. He loves his little boy more than anything! He's a super Dad! I love watching the two of them play together! Definitely 2 peas in a pod!
13. I'm looking forward to spending many more birthdays with my Frog Prince and growing old together! ♥ Happy 30th Birthday to my loving hubby!

Home Sweet Home

Back from Vegas...

We had a good time. I didn't get to do nearly the things I wanted to do... but that happens when you go somewhere with a group of people. It's all good though! Would have been better if we had won some $$!! :)

My T13 is going to be a little late. Trying to upload pics so I can post 13 of them!! :) (It's going to be hard to pick... since I took like 300+!! hehe)

I'm glad to be home! Nothing like sleeping in your OWN bed!!

Thirteen Things I Want To Do While In Vegas


1. Eat some good food! A few recommendations from friends: Emeril's Delmonico Steakhouse, Picasso @ the Bellagio, Mandalay Bay buffet and the Buffet at Paris! You can't go to Vegas and not eat at one of the *boo-fays!* ;)

2. Play some slots! I'm not really into any of the *card* games. (I've never played penny slots like Carmen talks about! I've played nickel slots though!)

3. Check out the view from top of the Eiffel Tower. I've heard the view from there at night is amazing! (Paris hotel, of course)

4. Hubby wants to check out the Poker Room at The Mirage. It is suppose to be the LARGEST! (woohoo!!)

5. I thought I wanted to check out Red Rock Canyon, but a few friends said that they preferred the Valley of Fire better. (I need to check & see how far away they are!)

6. Free Drinks!!

7. Sleeping In!! (I can't tell you the last time I did that!!)

8. Since my little sis is getting married and all... we MUST have a Girl's Night! I'm not sure if we're going to hit some of the clubs/bars or maybe go the cheesy (but FUN!) route & watch The Thunder Down Under! (ohhh-la-la!)I think we'd have a blast... and esp. since my Mom & Aunt will be with us! The looks on their faces would be PRICELESS I bet! ha!

9. Another cheesy thing - but I think I want to check out Madame Whoever's Wax Museum. I've never been & I think I'd have fun snapping away w/my camera! This might be the CLOSEST I get to a celebrity! :)

10. Floating in the pool. The Monte Carlo has a lazy river... and being lazy sounds right up my alley! (The weather says the high is in the 90's, so warm enough for this Texas girl!)

11. Area 51. Another fun photo opportunity. I gotta get a picture by those signs!

12. And that reminds me that I want to get a picture in front of the Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign! las_vegas (I meant to get one of me in my wedding dress in 2001, but you know... I guess I had other things on my mind when I was actually there! ha!)

13. Another photo one. I want a pic of me & hubby in front of Little Chapel of the Flowers, where we got married almost 5 years ago in November. ♥ (and my sis is getting married in the same one! All together now... AWWWWWW!!) Maybe I should have titled this T13 as... "13 Things I Want to Take a Picture of While in Vegas!" :)

Thirteen things I like about myself


Last week, a challenge was made by Denise for everyone to do a T13 about things we like about ourselves. I think this is gonna be harder than it looks!! ha!

1. my patience. I can take alot and I hardly ever loose my *cool.* I think working with children for 10+ years has helped alot with this. (although I do have my days!)

2. my smile. I don't have the whitest or straightest, but I think I have a *sincere* one and I show it off often! :)

3. my creativity. It just hides from time to time, but once I get those creative juices flowin'... there's no stopping me! (speaking of... I need to use my creativity & catch up on my scrapbooking!)

4. i'm a hard-worker & dependable. i always try to do my best and give my 110%.

5. my sense of humor. I can be a little sarcastic & smart-alek sometimes, but it's all in good fun! :)

6. i give good hugs. I love to snuggle - esp. with my 2 boys!

7. i'm loving & compassionate. I care about other's feelings & try to be careful around *sensitive* people. :)

8. my car! hehee! okay, it's probably suppose to be more about my personal "traits", but thought I'd throw this one in to be fun! ha! it's fun though... and you know Froggie Mama *MUST* drive a green froggie car!

9. my hair. (even though I need to get a trim!) it's long, pretty, & thick!

10. my photography skills. I'm always getting asked to bring my camera with me... to school, to birthday parties, to friend's house, etc. b/c I take such "great pics!" Maybe I'm just better than the people that I know personally b/c I have alot of blog friends that are MUCH better than I am! But i'm learning & getting better everyday, I think!! :)

11. i make cute kids!! That Lil' Tad... he's such a stud!! ♥

12. i'm outgoing and talkative. i'm not "overly" outgoing... like "IN YOUR FACE", but I'll talk to just about anyone! (I get that from my Mom!)

13. Last but not least, I'm a great Mommy. ♥

All comments welcome! But if you participated in the T13 this week, leave your link below! :)

Pre-School, Honeybirds, & Cardboard Boxes

Today was Tad's 1st *official* day of Pre-K. It wasn't anything special to him, though, as he's been at this pre-school since he was 6 weeks old! :) He liked circle time today & apparantly likes coloring w/markers alot b/c he came home with marker all over his arms! ha! Little stinker! I forgot to get a picture this morning before I dropped him off, but got a thumbs-up tonight! (notice the cool froggie pj pants!) ♥

My parents have all types of wildlife living in and around their property... including about a dozen hummingbirds or "honey-birds" as Tad calls them! :) I tried to get some pics of them all swarming around trying to get some treats, but the best I could do was 4 at a time! They are quick little buggers, for sure!!

Grandpa Johnny & Cam had lots of fun together this weekend! Here they are displaying the "Superhero House" that they made! So creative those two!!

We also had a play-date w/my friend, H, and her little one, Miss A. She is such a doll & has such a cute little personality!

I couldn't get Tad to smile! But Miss A is posin'! That's a girl for ya! Tad was more like... "Hurry up already!!" ha!

Many prayers for Steve Irwin's family and friends.

Stingray Facts:
*Marine fish related to the shark
*Wingspan in different species ranges from 10 inches to 7 feet
*Barb can be up to 12 inches
*Lie buried in sand, and normally very shy and non-aggressive
*Eat worms, mollusks and other invertebrates
*Possess flexible tails armed, in most species, with saw-edged, venomous spines
*Uses barb in self-defense when startled, threatened or cornered; venom causes excruciating pain, and serrated barb damages tissue when pulled out; large rays can exert enough force to drive their tail spines into a wooden boat
*Most stings occur in shallow, coastal waters when swimmers step on a stingray
*Fatal stings extremely rare, with only 17 recorded stingray deaths in Australia since 1969

Lazy days of summer...

We actually made it to the Lake this summer! Saturday was *GORGEOUS* with a slight breeze... well, before the storm blew in, but we had already been there a few hours, so it was fine. I, of course, took like a million pics... just having fun taking different shots, using different settings, etc. Thought I'd share a few! :)

Lil' Tad being silly! That's SIL & friend on jet ski in background.




Tad's very 1st jet ski ride w/Daddy! He LOVED it! :)




Hubby showin' off!




I ♥ this one!




Here comes the storm...
