Orlando Vacation....Part 2

Part 2 of the photos. I still have so many more to post but these will do for now. There are many in this post. They are not in any particular order per say. Most of these are of the kids being kids. There are a few of my friends and I. I cringed a bit when I posted these because I have gained so much weight since having babies. It's going to come off...I've just not really focused on this area as of yet. Sooooo.....I decided to quit hiding and show myself....LOL

Ok so now that is out...sit back and enjoy part 2 of our vacation.

(This was a daily ritual on our vacation....everyone loading up in my friend's van and heading off to the many pools this place had.)

(Shiloh my 7yr old....isn't he cute!)

(This was one of the many favorite past times for these games galore!! They took advantage of playing the Wii since they have limited time at home. We had brought our wii and our friends brought we had plenty of game systems to go around. Our Wii broke the second day we were there. This pic was taken before the accident. Oh well...)

(Ephee's favorite past time was riding up and down the elevator. He also loved pressing the Emergency call button and having security come out. No joke...every time we entered the elevator, he pressed the button....yikes....EPHEE Dont do THAT!!)

(Justin being......Justin)

(Girls favorite past time was being girls...)

(One night we headed off to a place called Old Town. They had little stores such as the one above. We all clowned around and took lots of pictures.)

(Silly faces)

(The mommas!! I love the multi racial friendships I have (Hispanic, black, white). Perfect image of the Body of Christ)

(Donnie needs a tan....LOL. Circus girl again!! Good thing she's over the water.)

(My friend Adrienne holding Ana and her daughter. I was going to join them in the water but I didn't wear my bathing suit on this day. It was the hottest day of almost 100*. Ana was so hot. Yes....she had suncreen. I know she should have had a hat....forgot this also. You would think being a mom of 8, I would be organized....NOT!!)

(The girls doing a line dance at the barbque the condos held for all the owners. FREE FOOD, MUSIC, AND kind of party!! Yeah, I did do the Electric pictures of this though ;))

(The girls competed in a hula hoop contest to see who could go the longest...)

(My friend's daughter won the contest...TWICE!!! This girl can HULA!!)

(The Condos we stayed at)

(My favorite pass time is hanging out with my LOVE!! On this day we rented a couple bikes and took off for a few hours. NO KIDS ALLOWED!!)

(We parked!!)

(Every morning Donnie led the families into Worship and bible study. Donnie usually has a little one on his lap during family bible time.)

(Shiloh enjoyed spending time with his best bud)

(Girls again.....)

(Some of the gang hanging out on the balcony drinking blue icees)

(Love the bubbles...this has become a tradition for our girls)


More to come.....till then

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
