I really will be better about updating my blog after our family reunion, promise. We plan on leaving this weekend and we will be gone all next week so this may be my last post till I get back.
Well I've realized over the past few weeks that Aubrey at such a tender age of 10 almost eleven months old has a favorite TV show. Aubrey like her older sister has taken a liking to Super Why. She even likes it more than her Baby Einstein videos or Signing Times. I'm hoping this means that she will become a "super reader" at a young age. Only time will tell.

I just finished the Twilight series this morning. In all I have to say I liked it. As I read, like in most books I have read, there were times of frustration with certain characters especially the main character in this book. She bugged me at times but there is usually one of those types for me in any book I read. So now that I am done I allowed myself to watch the trailer for the movie. I had to wait till I was done otherwise watching it may have ruined the faces of the characters I had already in my head. I enjoy my imagination more than Hollywood's. So here is a trailer, I don't know if it is official. It was the best one I saw on YouTube, so I hope you enjoy. This will be one to look forward to in December and before that the new book in August.

It is that time of year again. The time to order wonderful frozen fruits from Bithell Farms. This is where I got my loganberries for my jam last year. I think I'm going to order marionberries this time around. They have a great selection and are willing to deliver to your area. The amount you have to buy is quite a bit so going in halvesies might be necessary. Make sure you get your orders in by June 30th to get in on this shipment.

I had to put in a picture of Nora all cleared up of hives for proof for my family. She really is well now. Sorry for the scary sad picture I last posted (I received some concerned calls last week).

Here is another beautiful Brazillian song to enjoy. This one is for my brother Jonathan, who served a mission in Brazil for our church. Ever since I heard this off of Design Mom by guest dad, Ryan Wright, I often go back and listen to it and the other music he shared. Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend.
A while ago Spencer and I sat down to a PBS show of Andre Rieu's: The Homecoming. I don't think I will ever forget it. I have never seen a crowd so drawn to the performer. It was like they were drawn to something that ran deeper than the music. There was not one person in the crowd that was not up and moving to the music. Someday, Andre Rieu's: The Homecoming will be a part of our dvd library.
This is not one of the performances from The Homecoming but the singers are some of the same he used in The Homecoming. I love brazilian music. This is so beautiful. Enjoy.

Mothers, would you not want to wake up Sunday morning with a plate full of this? Check out the tummy pleasers that My Recipes is putting out. After browsing you may want to drop a hint to your honey or children. Spencer, consider yourself hinted.

It's that time again when all the family will get together and because of that very fact the need to take a picture comes in. Well, the gals this year are to, as of right now, wear light pink and khaki. We will be out doors so I was wanting to be in a summery dress or skirt. Light pink is obviously not the hot color in this season. I'm having a hard time figuring out what I am going to wear. This so far are items I liked but can't decide. Any thoughts?

My family and I got together this past Sunday and we all brought Mexican themed dishes to be festive with Cinco de Mayo today. I got to be in charge of the dessert and made this amazing Mexican flan. I love everything flan and custard and creme brulee. You get me, right? Well for those who share in my love, here is the recipe:

On Saturday I tried something different that I haven't done since a was a kid...horse back riding. My friend Connie from church owns two horses and was in need of a second rider. I was so there. It's different from the me time that I usually opt for (pedicure, massage, facial). Yet it was rewarding in it's own way. Not in the sense of relaxing my body (my muscles and groin are not thanking me that I went), but in the sense of getting out and doing something new, being outdoors and letting my mind focus on something different than the norm. It was slightly challenging because I haven't done it in so long and Leo, the horse I was on, was sensitive to my touch in guiding him so for the first little bit I was zig zagging around. But it was fun. So this week try doing something different from the norm it can be so refreshing and rewarding to the mind and soul. Thanks Connie for the great time.
