Madison looses her first tooth

Tonight at dinner Madison said "Mom my tooth feels funny will you check it after dinner?". Well when I checked her tooth I was SURPRISED she actually made it through dinner. That sucker was beyond ready.

So off to the bathroom we went and in true Garcia fashion she puled and twisted and then yanked and OUT it came.

So proud. So brave.

How cool is your Daddy???

He made us a rope swing, a zip line and a tight rope!!!

And in case you couldn't tell we are having the time of our lives.

Ya, we know, you wish our daddy was your daddy.

Some kids have all the luck... :)

A Mere Flesh Wound...

So my girl Sadie was up in a tree ~~AGAIN~~ and before she knew it she was sliding down using only her poor tummy as brakes...

Those that know my wild cat won't be all that surprised by her latest injury...but they may be a little grossed out by it.

This is one of the best/worst wounds she's has had too date

While I know she is in pain I think her real hurt is that this tree got the better of her tonight. :-(

Brian's Other Women...

It's NO joke...

These "other" women have captured my husband's heart. They have made him laugh, and cry, they have taken his breath away and made his heart skip a beat, they bring him joy unimaginable, he thinks about them constantly, he plans for their future, he meets their every need and then some...

These other women trust Brian, they need him and depend on him. They share their secrets with him and they love him unconditionally...

And these other women have made me fall deeper in love with my husband...


...they bring out pure goodness in him and it is an honor to share my husband's heart these 2 amazing young ladies!

Happy Valentine's Day

Every Holiday I like to make (HA! I mean buy) something unique for all the kids in our life: school, sports teams, friends etc...

And every holiday, my mom faithfully comes up with something creative, fun and candy filled ~ a true hit for all.

And each holiday I *try* to join her at the crafting table, I try to put on my Martha Stuart hat and I try to contribute a least enough to take some credit for the nifty treat.

But each and every holiday ~ I fail miserably!

But my momma never does - this is what she made for the Valentine's in our life...

Sour Cream Tubes

filled with yummy candy and balloons

THANK YOU MOM!!! - I'm one spoiled girl!!!

***My momma can and will make nifty things for you too :~)

Pizza Mania...

Ok before I get to the real post...I have to share a confession:

Stevie B's is my **FAVORITE** pizza place! I only "invited" the kids to Stevie B's for a "Pizza Party" so I wouldn't look like a fool going to a kids joint with my big girl friends and gorging myself on their mouth watering pizza buffet.

Nick's Nest and Mommy's Joy "get me" so they indulged me in my splurge and off to Stevie B's we went. 3 Momma's, 11 kids and ummm 15 or so WHOLE pizzas were consumed by our hungry crew...

The Girls

The boys...

Oh and I think it might be worthy of mention that 4 year old Nick ate more than every other person in our party and I am absolutely SURE Stevie B's lost LOTS of money on us...

I'm thinking, they just might lock the doors the next time they see us coming...
