So one of the guys jake works with got married this past weekend and it was kinda weird how the ceremonies were, the wedding was at 1 in allen and then reception was at 6 in richardson so my mom took the kids for the weekend for us and we decided to make a weekend out of it and we got a nice hotel room at the renaissance hotel in richardson and we went to the wedding first and it was very beautiful, it was a catholic vietnamese ceremony, jake didn't ask him if it was going to be in english, we arrived and we were the only english people there lol everyone was vietnamese and the whole ceremony was in vietnamese and it was catholic so me and jake had no idea what was going on lol, we would just stand and neel and stand and neel when they did and it was long! But it was very beautiful and intimate just wish i knew what was going on lol. So then we went and checked into the hotel which was beautiful and then went to Fox and Hound to kill time and watched the florida game with all the gator heads there lol, it was like a big party! Then we went to the reception which was alot of fun there were a few people that were there from jakes work i knew and then we made friends with the ladies at our table, the food was really weird but it was good and we had a blast! It was nice to get away even if it was not far lol.

It was a total blast and enjoyed having all my crazy family over!

Random Pics

So this is just random stuff. We went a few weeks ago to the christmas parade at willowbend mall and saw the snowglobes and kids had fun but it was really crowded so we just walked around, we have been busy with school, playdates and all the fun family stuff. Zoe this month was diagnosed with a slight form of autism called PDD - Pervasive Development Disorder, we have a meeting with the school and drs and stuff wednesday to go over what there gonna change in her school program and what we need to do. She is getting alot better then when she was first being tested. The PDD has to do with social and oral skills. But she is working on them and has improved alot since being in school! Enjoy the pics!!


So i never posted about halloween, we have a fun busy day!! Zoe got to dress up the day before halloween at school, it was sopposed to be dress for sucess and kids dressed in what they wanna be when they grow up, well zoe wont tell you anything so she wanted to wear her minnie mouse dress and we said she was a actresss cus this girl can really act lol, she can act out scenes in a movie so good and have the correct emotions lol. So halloween day i hosted a halloween party for the kids and then we went downtown to mckinney for there scare on the square and then went out that night trick or treating with the kids and then handed out candy! Zoe loved it so much she keeps asking every day if its halloween and trick or treating again so we have to come up with a calender to count down to another year lol. Enjoy some of the pics!

Just let them be!

Ok so i have been reading and hearing all the stuff about prop 8 in california and now how the mormans are being attacked and targeted since the bill didn't go through. Heres my opionion, I think whoever wants to be married should be married, husband and wife, two guys, two girls, whatever! I dont think its anyones right to tell us who we can and can't marry. Especially the government, next there going to be telling us how to raise our kids, discipline them, what time to go to bed lol. EVery person should be able to think for themselves, what is it doing to us that they can't get married? NOTHING! IF ya dont like it then dont have gay friends! If one of my kids turned out to be gay i wouldn't want someone telling them they couldn't get married or have kids or anything, they should be loved no matter what and supported. So anyways thats my thoughts on this! Have a good day!

It was me, my mom, my sisters, my friends abby and casey and my friend caseys sister in law! It was a blast! We made shirts hehe to wear to the show! It was a sold out show!! I have never seen a place so full of women lol, the ages seemed to range from 21 to 40! I think my sisters were the youngest i saw there. And some people were dressed up 90's, 80's, like they were going to a nice club or bar, and then the ones that was wearing all there new kids shirts, buttons,etc..It was fun people watching! So we went downtown early and went to Dicks Last Resort which is what i think everyone did because it was soooo full of people going to the concert, so we ate and stuff there and then walked to american airlines center, natasha beddingfield opened and she was pretty good, then new kids came on and it was pure chaos lol, sooooo many screaming crazy women! Of course we were one of them! They played for a long time and sang all there wonderful songs, showed off there oh so nice bodies! Mmmmmm!!!
