Wow...It's been a long time!

So I've just noticed that it has been almost two years since my last posting. Geez...where does the time go. As a little bit of a recap. Let's see. Since my last posting I have managed to graduate from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor's Degree of Business Administration in Accounting in Dec. 2009. Woo hoo! I also turned 30..and soon to be 31 this June 2011. We have taken a few vacations to the SUNSHINE STATE and really enjoyed the beach life while visiting. I caught my first HUGE fish ever. It weighed right at 38 pounds and I reeled it in all by myself. Go ME! Of course, I couldn't feel my hands after it got to the boat and my fishing was over for atleast thirty minutes until I regained feeling back in them. :) My daughter, Kaylee, managed to be the February Student of the Month two times in two years. That was real exciting for her and she will be heading into her last year at the elementary school. Let's see...William has joined the Boy Scouts and will be heading to Junior High next school year. OMG...I can't believe he is that old already. He loves to play his XBOX 360 and play with his friends on XBOX LIVE. I still can't believe that you can chat with the person who you are playing with through the controller. We also added a new member to the Abel Family-JoJo, our dachshund. He absolutely loves to play with the kids and I almost forgot..he loves to swim in a pool. He actually jumps onto the side of the small inflatable ones and then leaps in. It is the funniest thing. As for me and my husband we will be celebrating our 12th wedding anniversary on April 19, 2011. I can hardly believe it. He is a wonderful person and he continues to make me laugh. That is one of his finer qualities. He he. As I am sure that this not even a quarter of the things that have happened to us over the past two years, those are some HIGHLIGHTS. I hope that it will not be another two years before I update my blog and look forward to the wonderful things that life has to offer. See you soon!

Busy, busy, busy!

So, it's been over a month since I posted my last posting. Here is a little recap...the kids finally got out of school on June 4th, I turned 29 on June 18th, and my niece Candace turned six months How time flies by so quickly. I have decided not to go to summer school because I will have to borrow the money to go. I would rather use my pell grant money in the fall to pay for school. Yippee, I will finally GRADUATE. :) Very excited about that and looking forward to the future. So for right now I will just be enjoying the summer a little sunlight at a time. It's quite HOT or maybe I should say SCORCHING outside lately. Please remember to wear sun Hopefully...I will update my blog better and try to avoid such long breaks between posts. Everyone stay safe and I'll post again soon.

It's late!!!

Here it is coming on 11 o'clock at night and I am just now starting to study for my auditing exam in the morning. I am the world's worst procrastinator when it comes to finals...I just want the semester to be over with I am really going to enjoy the summer and relax. :) William still has perfect attendance in school this year, so hopefully we can make it a few more weeks and get that certificate. I hope so...I don't think I ever got perfect attendance. It's so hard these days to keep kids healthy enough to go all year round without being sick. Anyways, I guess I need to study now. Prayers are accepted with regards to my exam...

Happy Mother's Day!!!

I just wanted to take the time and tell all of the MOMS out there... Happy Mother's Day!!! Today was a good day, I got to go all the way to Spring, Texas to go look at wood laminate flooring for my home and then ended up at the Home Depot in Huntsville, TX. I will actually get it installed this week...which is my wonderful husbands task :) I am very excited and I can't wait to get rid of this carpet FINALLY. Our kids have really done their best to test it (LOL). I am exhausted and ready to call it a day but William has a project due on Tuesday, so we need to get it finished. I was off all weekend but didn't get much rest...bummer. I also just realized I needed to study for my final on Guess I'm not going to bed anytime soon.

Hopefully everyone had a safe and blessed Mother's Day!!!

Exciting news

I spoke to my sister-in-law, Amanda, this morning about coming to Texas to visit us. It's been at least three years since the kids and I have seen her. So much has changed in that short little period of time. She has gotten married, moved to Lakeland, FL., and had a beautiful baby girl named Candace. We are of course excited and can't wait to see when they will be flying out.

First blog

All right...I'm not very good at this kind of stuff but here it goes. I'm hoping more of my friends and family will start their own, especially our family members in Florida.
