---Good Ole Myspace! I believe it was in September of 2005 that he sent me a friend request. We talked off and on for the next year and a half or so and I met him the day after Valentines Day 2007 when he came to eat at the restaurant where I worked.
Where did you meet?
---Myspace. In person--at Estebans
When did you meet?
---Myspace-Sept 2005 In person-Feb 15, 2007
Was it love at first sight?
How old were you both?
---He was 32, I was 21
When did you have your first kiss?
---The second night I hung out with him.
Where was your first date?
---Umm... not real sure. We didn't technically "date"
How long until you met the parents?
---A few months...I don't really remember.. I met them at different times.

---Our wedding day :)
---The birth of our baby girl
---There are quite a few other happy memories too :)
Whats the sweetest thing he has ever done for you?
---That's a toughy. He has done lots of sweet things for me. He really helped me turn my life around and made me want to be a better person.
Does he buy you lots of gifts?
Whats your favorite thing to do together?
---As long as we are together (and both in good moods! LOL) anything is fine. We enjoy spending time with the kids. Laying around watching our TV shows or a movie. Before I was pregnant with Ava we liked to go to Breakers and drink and shoot pool.
When did you know you were falling in love?
---When he started working out of town was when I really realized how I felt for him. I missed him so much and just wanted him to sleep next to me and hold me hand till I fell asleep like he did every night. He wasn't gone much though in the beginning because he would drive all the way home -from San Antonio or where ever he was- just to sleep next to me. Then get up at 3 and drive all the way back for work.
Who said I love you first?
Is it true love?
How do you know this?
---If it wasn't.. we wouldn't have made it this far. We have had our share of problems but we always make it through.
Whats his worst habit?
---Smoking like a chimney!
What annoys you about him?
---Do you really want me to get started!? LOL
---When he leaves his coffee cups laying out in the morning.
---That he has to sit outside for, like, 2 hours every morning drinking his coffee and reading news stories before he can do anything else! UGH
---STARGATE! (I *hate* that show)Despite all his annoying little flaws, I still love him. (I'm sure he has a list for me as well, LOL)

How does it feel when he touches you?
Does his touch give you goose bumps?
Does he kiss your neck?
---Oh yea :)
---He has before
***Deep and meaningfull...***
Could you be without him?
---Could I? It'd be hard. And it's the last thing I would want. But if I were to be without him, there would be a perfectly good reason for it. And so, yes, I would have to learn to be without him.

After Painted Potters, I took the kids over to Chuck E Cheese since I was told that Elise was such a big girl at her Dr. Appointment. We ate pizza. Tyler spent most of his time in the tunnels and Elise played every game and rode every ride on the little kiddie side! By the time we got home, Elise was EXHAUSTED! I had her lay on the couch and take a nap which she wasn't very happy about at first, but let me tell you, not 3 minutes after her head hit the pillow, she was out! So Ava and I decided a little nap sounded quite nice. So we all napped till Daddy got home. I cooked dinner, gave baths and then we laid in Daddy's bed and played with Ava for a little bit before bedtime.
We did our Fathers Day with Mike on Saturday since Elise wasn't going to be with us on Sunday. The kids gave him their cards and a travel size coffee maker to take with him when he works out of town (that's what he wanted) I picked up one of those hand print kits and made a plaster of Ava's footprint (the hand print didn't work so well) We got it everywhere and I had to put her straight in the tub right after but it was worth it. I painted it and wrote Happy Fathers Day 2008 To: Daddy Love: Ava on it. I think it turned out pretty good.
We picked up Harley and Evan and took them with us all to Palm Beach in Galveston. It was very hot and very crowded but we still had a good time. We came home, and by the time we had all showered and dressed it was time to head up to Red Lobster where we met Dale (Mikes dad) and Melba for dinner. They were pretty packed and the service wasn't so good at all. At least we were all together. We don't get to see much of Dale and Melba so its always nice when we do. I know Elise sure enjoys seeing her "Pappa Dale!"
Yesterday I picked up Harley, Evan and their friend Montana to come stay at my house and we went to the neighborhood pool today. Ava *loves* the water!
Obviously, I have new pictures. So many, in fact, that I decided to make a slide show this time. Much easier that way. Its pretty late, so Ill have to post it another day. Hopefully tomorrow.
Before I go, I wanna leave you with a picture... My big girl grabbed on to her toy for the first time today! She has been hitting them with her hands but hasn't quite figured out how to reach out and grab them.. until today. She did it numerous times too. Makes me happy and sad at the same time. It is amazing how much she changes every day. She is getting pretty close to laughing. I don't think it'll be too much longer.
Hope you Daddy's had a great Fathers Day!

Yesterday, my cousin Andrew in Louisiana got into a real bad accident with 2 of his friends. They were going about 60 miles an hour and were hit by an 18 wheeler. One of the boys was in the bed of the truck and was killed. The other boy broke his hip, I believe and Andrew broke his jaw in a few places, had a gash from his ear to the middle of his forehead, a gash on his eyeball and possibly a broken collar bone or ribs? I've heard a few different things, but the point is, he was hurt pretty badly. He has a long road of recovery ahead of him, but we are praying that God watches over him and heals him. We love you Andrew.
I also have forgotten to mention that Tyler received an award from his History teacher for the best improved student! This is a pretty big deal in our household as we have struggled with him quite a bit this year. We are very proud of him though. He still has a ways to go and we are hoping for a better year next year, but some improvement is better than none. Way to go Tyler!
Tomorrow is laundry day.
