A few I have read.......




Well I picked up this book ( Nineteen Minutes by Jodi Picoult) @ Wal-mart a few weeks back and just as I opened it I couldnt put it down. I am not a reader I have never enjoyed sitting and just reading a book!!! But this Author has me!!! I had every intention to go buy the book Twilight because everyone that I do know that reads is reading it but at the store I got it in my hand opened it up and started to read the first page and well NOTHING! It didnt grab me! So the book went back to the shelf as I looked around I found Nineteen Minutes and this one did it for me! I read the whole thing I couldnt put it down I was reading every chance I got. It is a really good book so if you are a reader go get and read it!! So after that book I went and got another one (WOW another one! I was suprised myself remember I have never been a reader.) I got Perfect match. O.K. another great book go get this one too!!! See I was thinking It isnt possible for the same author to come out with another good book, but it is possible she's (jodi Picoult) good! Well I am done with that one also and now on # 3 book My Sisters Keeper I just stared it yesterday so when I am done I will let you know how it is. I was on her web site (jodipicoult.com incase you want to check it out) and I found out that this book I am reading is a movie and so is nineteen minutes on The Lifetime channel! oh and after this book I am going to read Change of Heart also by jodi Picoult. that book is about a a kid that needs a transplant and the donor is a convict!!! WOW what would you do???
Take care and drive safe( YES it is still raining!)

I will have more pics soon, this Thursday Hugo is having his Christmas progam. Also tomorrow is Xaviers last day of school for Christmas break and he is having his school party so more picture opportunities.

Another Tournament!



Here are some pics of Hugo @ his tournament. This tournament was the West Coast Tournament he played in Mission Viejio. The fields were very nice. The weather was a little warm. I wasnt expecting it to be that warm there. But oh well I survived! The team had difficult weekend they had 2 games on Sat and they tied both! Sun they could of had 2 games just depending on another teams results and a win for us. Unfortunatly they lost so we had to go home! I didn't take but 24 pics this weekend the games were nerve wreckng so I was way to busy watching the games. But these are just my favs.
UPDATE on school!!! The boys are doing well in school, Nathan is adapting to H.S he really likes it. I give that boy props he is taking 3 CP (college prep) classes and a Spanish class and Cross Country and Soccer!!! I pray to God that he can do it all. Nate has a tournamnet this weekend in Riverside. This will be the last tournament in long while cuz the season begins 9/6/08 for both of them. Nano is doing well in school also. He just informed that he wants to join the chess club @ school! That boy will try anything. I hope he likes it! Then he can teach me how to play. Shark/Xavier is doing great i think he is enjoying having mommy to himself!!!
Well I am so sorry i havent posted in a long time I have been caught up in the hustle and bustle of the normal everyday things!!!
Have a great day and take care!!!

Tournaments and Back 2 Skl !!!

Obviously you can see from the pictures that Nathans team did really well this weekend. The team took the Championship. The final game was a nail bitter game it ended 4-3. His tournament was in Garden Grove Sat and Sunday. Nathan got a shoot out ( WAY 2 GO)on Sundays 1st game and if I am correct the final score was 5-0 so the coach pulled him out of his position (Goalkeeper) and put on the pitch as forward so he could get some time on the pitch. And I got some pictures of that Because who knows when that will happen again.lol. Nathan was so thrilled he smiled the whole way home. He has another tournament on 8/30 in riverside so cant wait for that one. Hugo has a tournament this weekend YES another tournament this month is all about tournaments!!! But this month is also about the kids going back to school. The boys are going back on Thursday. They are so ready to go back and so am I. This summer just flew right by me this year. Watch next thing I know it will be Christmas!!!
Well to all my family and friends I hope everyone is doing well, safe and healthy.
I am off to bed I need to wake up early to do some last minute shopping for school.
Good nite

It started to shake!!!

Hello everyone. I hope all my friends and family are doing well! We are doing great over here. I got phone calls regarding the earthquake we had yesterday.Thanks for checking in on me and the family! A bit nerve rattling I was sitting in the car when it started to shake. First I thought it was a strong wind ( cuz it gets a bit windy @ hugos practice, that is why I was in the car hugo was @ soccer camp.) But then I realized NO it is a earthquake. Most of you all know that I am not from cali so this earth shaking crap really freaks me out!!! i havent felt many maybe 3 or 4 small ones but this one just kept going! after it finished I called Hubby cuz hubby was @ home with Nathan and Shark. Shark 1st asked what is that noise and why are we moving!!! It was so funny when I got home I asked him about it and he said "MOM we were moving" and he did this wiggling thing with his fingers he also said he was scared(POOR BABY).Now Nathan was on the computer and freaked out and ran upstairs (POOR DUDE). Good news though no damage to our house and I should really get prepared for the big one! Seriously I am not prepared what so ever. But other than that scare Hubby is working the kids are doing their soccer thing. Actually Hugo is doing a soccer summer camp this week so he has had to be in temecula @ 9am till 12pm! He is having a great time!!! He has a tournament this weekend in Temecula, WOOHOO you know I like tournys. And of course U Know I will be taking pictures this weekend. Oh yeah MOM miss ya and so do the boys especially Shark, he keeps asking when you are coming back.
Well better go finish the laundry and help Hugo get ready for camp tomorrow!
Good Night and everyone be safe!

This weekend!


Well as I mentioned Hugo celebrated his 10th birthday on Saturday we went to Olive Garden and it was delicious. Knotts soak city was so much fun. Hugo had a great time and I think I had more fun cuz my children were having so much fun. i can't wait to go back. Shark had the greatest time also he loved the slide for the lil ones he went on the slide atleast 50 times he also really enjoyed the wave area. Hugo really liked the Lazy river he really couldn't get enough of it.
After Soak city we went to Sonic. O.K I havent had sonic in about 10 years since I left Texas. I love their Cherry Limeade so refreshing on a hot day and let me tell you it was flippin HOT @ 6pm it was 107!!! Can you believe that!!!
Ohh My mom is on her way home she has left us!!! I really enjoyed having her here. It was so nice to hang out, make food, go shopping with here. I will miss having her here and so will the boys. Mom If I didn't tell you Thanks for coming down. I think the one thing i will miss most is when we rented 8 movies YES 8 movies and we watched movies all day. I got to watch girly movies. I watched P.S I love you o.k. I cried through the whole movie it was so so so good. Watch it Now if you havent seen it.
Other than that everyone is well over here. I hope you enjoy the pics I posted.

Would u like some ice cream!

Here is my baby, Xavier. He is smiling as usual for the camera but he did get pissed off today. I was told not to take pics while he was eating his ice cream! Xavier loves to have his bowl of vanilla ice cream every night with chocolate drizzled 0n top and you have to put it in the frezzer for a bit and don't take it out before he says so either!!!
