Happy New Year

Well the Dolphins proved all you haters wrong again! I don't want to brag because this next game is like the super bowl to the city of Miami. They have not been to the playoffs since 2000. They beat the Jets to win the AFC east championship and that win put them in the playoffs. David couldn't celebrate really because he was hit and fell the wrong way on his neck, which caused a concussion and mild trauma to his neck. I was there in NY with him when he went down and I absolutely lost it, but I can say because of the grace of God he was able to walk off the field. Actually he is trying to play this weeks game against the Ravens at home. He scored average on his concussion test which means he can play right right now. But we will see physically If he is ready to play. I think I will have a few shots of Patron to watch him play this week; i'm that scared. Here are a few pictures of the boys on Christmas Day. Dev Man played so hard on Christmas he fell asleep in his high chair. They were out driving the power wheels jeep at 7 am. It was a great day! David gave me a new camera. It takes better quality pictures. Take a look. Happy New Year!!!! Darius riding his Razor thanks to our wonderful neighbors! Thanks again! Devyn on his version of a Razor scooter...he has already learned how to ride it. Merry Christmas! Cheese!

The Dolphins are winning! Pray for them Sunday...

So I never talk about football on here but I got's to talk about David touchdown. I am his biggest fan I think...well I should be right? Anyway last weeks game they played the San Francisco fourty niners. I am always scared when David jumps over defenders to receive the ball because you never know how he will land. He had a horrible fall earlier this season that made me run to the locker room past all the security. I can laugh about it now but it wasn't funny then. Needless to say he was back on the field the next quarter so I felt like a fool later. Back on the subject his TD catch was great! He caught the ball over the head of the defender turned around and ran like hell! Some of the commentators said they haven't seen someone that big run that fast. Well he does train with me a little in his off-season I take credit of some sorts. Take a look. Click on the title to see it. I need to learn how to add a link. I clicked on the obvious button and added url but it would not show on the blog...I need help!

Well the Christmas crunch has begun! We are so busy all the time, so I decided to take my own Christmas shots and print them on a card from Shutterfly. Our impromptu photo shoot didn't go well at all! Darius wouldn't open his eyes. Devyn had a nasty nose! Anyway I am going to find a picture from earlier this year and try again! I have a story about our trees but I will post it later.

Thanksgiving was wonderful! I got much needed mom and aunt came for a week. It was great! We had "Chitlins" or the proper name Chitterlings. Also known as pig guts! Darius learned how to clean them too!! He was really excited to help. Darius had a Thanksgiving performance at school and he did wonderful! This is him afterwards waiting for food. He caught eyes with me while he was on stage!!It was hilarious...he looked at me like go home! I think he thought I would take him home. He loves school so much sometimes he doesn't want to leave.

Fun in the sun

I haven't posted much recently football season has been kicking my butt....we have visited the beach and I might use these shots for Christmas cards...

My Superhero's.....

Devyn is getting so big and mature so fast! We followed Darius to some of the homes with his candy bag...and his flashlight! Darius had a blast that night! We had several Fall Fest/Halloween celebrations that we attended...its hard to keep up but this one was the 1st time Darius put on his spiderman suit...look at his expressions! He is hilarious SuperDevMan didn't get out of the wagon every time however....he stayed in to enjoy the treats... I had to post this pic of Darius' face. I painted it myself! I'm so proud! He loved it! I had help from a manual but it turned out wonderful!

I haven't been blogging a lot lately but here are a few recent pics of us.... Dave ordered a lobster tail it was huge! We started doing date night every is a pic of us leaving a restaurant in Miami Beach. Dev Man is still growing at a fast rate. He is still off the charts in all growth charts and actually his head grew 3 inches in a 2 month span! What more can I say these two are identical! It doesn't look like I birthed this one...sorry no pics of Darius....

I decided to take a trip by myself to an away game in Houston last weekend. My mother came and I also have two aunts and a cousin who live there. We all enjoyed one another during the weekend. I wanted to share some of the pics.

Unfortunately I haven't posted anything because Devyn brought home a nasty stomach virus that everyone has gotten except Darius.  We will be posting more once I feel better!!!!

This is not a joke.  I wanted to introduce Horn Martin, our family pet.  He travels every where with us and even has his own travel bag.  It is so cute and a bit sad how Darius interacts with him as if he is real.  We really need to invest in a real dog but Horn will do for now!  
I haven't put up pics of my mom this is what she enjoys doing in her spare time....
She is on the trails at least 2-3 times a week in Ohio....
maybe I will join her in the future.

The Day finally came

We weathered the storm!  The water in our pool got so high I was scared it may flood our house. The pool wasn't the only thing filled with water.  After all the talk about being excited to take the boys to school.  I cried so much as I drove Darius to school this morning.  We arrived there and I saw big kids and I started crying again!  I can't actually explain to you as a mother what it feels like to drop your baby off to "real" school.  
Darius is so excited he is finally in his uniform.
I think this picture is funny. Darius is smiling as hard as he can and Devyn looks identical to David.  It's scary!
This is Darius and a classmate.  He didn't want me to take pictures you can tell!  But mommy couldn't resist!  Sorry

Here comes Fay

I saved my next blog entry for first day pictures.  I knew the uniform that Darius has to wear would be great pics to post. Not to mention, him wearing his so fly, Gap, army fatigue, backpack, with the lunch bag to cute!  So Sunday came, and I packed the boys school supplies up, clothes were ironed, and they were tucked in bed.  While watching the Olympics with one eye open and the other one closed.  I saw "Broward county schools cancelled Monday" floating across the screen.  Well great!  If it wasn't for the Olympics I would of missed that announcement! I really didn't know if I saw it correct anyway because I was so tired.  So I had to sit up and focus and I kept reading and it contiued to give emergency numbers for the schools. Then it said due to a tropical storm Fay.  Ok so what am I going to tell Darius when he wakes up???  Sometimes it can be hard cause he still has a language delay so you have to be creative.  Darius woke up asking could he go to school and all I could say was, "it is raining too hard son you have to stay at home. "  He said "ok" with a long face. I know he doesn't like it when it rains hard so that was easier than I thought!  He went to orientation and everything! I felt bad for him because he really likes to go to school and learn.  He is a really smart boy.   
So for now we are doing the wait and see if things get bad.  The Dolphins let David come home for a night but he has to be back on the block around 6 so I guess that helps.

Count down yall

5 days and counting...
No pics to post this time.  I am busy preparing the boys for their first day of school!  I have 4 different orientations to attend this week 2 for each child! Why the heck do they have these?  I absolutely hate meetings!  That's another blog (I just had a vision of being in a track meeting in college) horrifying! Anyway Darius will be going to Kindergarten and Devyn will begin attending a wonderful program that Nova Southeastern University oversees on Monday.  I'm really excited probably more than they would be if they realized where they were going!  On the to do list, I have to buy school supplies.  Thats fun to me only that the list is becoming longer and longer. I have two long lists of things that they have to take with them on the first day. It is so funny how the list has changed over the years.  Some of the items they ask for now like ziploc bags, headphones, wipes with the refills, oh and photo copy paper???  I'm thinking paper is a given in a school.  I realize that times have changed dramatically but how much?  I'm not mad at them as long as they take them off my hands! I will buy a chair or a desk for a little freedom.  Sounds bad I guess but every mommy needs a break sometimes.

Idol Time

While Dave lives in the hotel with his teammates.  He stops in periodically and this was a night in particular that he came home.  Darius decided to start taking pictures of us.  He actually did a great job!  Eventually I grew tired you will see!
While Dave is away it can become very lonely around the house. This weekend in particular I really tried to keep busy.  We usually hit the children museums or something indoors because the heat is brutal right now.
Darius loves doing crafts he is really serious about painting...
Darius being rubbed with sunscreen by our nanny 
Dev man catching waves
I got the opportunity to attend a concert and had a blast...
I wasn't suppose to take a picture, but couldn't resist, I guess that's why it didn't come out!  Anyway it was a group named Maze featuring Frankie Beverly.  I grew up with their parents love them!
We ended the weekend with crafts again!
