New Tag!

I got this tag from my friend Cheryl. It's a little disturbing....really.

Okay, this is what you do...
Google...your name and the word "needs"...for me that would be "Teresa needs", for you that means insert your own name....write 10 of them, if you choose.

1. Teresa needs to lay off the sauce! (Oh my...and this was the first one, too!)
2. Teresa needs you. (Yes, all of you!)
3. Teresa needs one more miracle to become a saint. (Yes..well, what more can I say?)
4. Teresa needs to quit trying so hard to "not just be a pretty face." (LOL)
5. Teresa needs to make hard business decisions to keep the cash flowing . (Yes, I do!)
6. Teresa needs our support.
7. Teresa needs your prayers.
8. Teresa needs to buy 4 new tires for her car. (I really don't)
9. Teresa needs to find herself again. (um...sure, why not?)
10. Teresa needs to find some good drivers. (In Arizona? Good luck.)

Actually, that was pretty fun....and quite interesting. Anyone else wanna give it a try?

Josh's Best Friend!

Well, Josh has attached himself to a new friend, or should I say toy, a few weeks ago and will not allow it to leave his sight. Yep, it's Santa...or as Joshua calls him in his own slowly growing vocabulary "ho ho ho". He sleeps with him, eats with him, rides on his trike with him...you name it...they're buddies. And in his own true Steve's son way, "ho ho ho" even sings "Jingle Bells" in SPANISH. Gotta love those 2 year olds! I wonder how long this will last. Perhaps in April his new comfort toy will be an Easter Bunny. I'll keep you posted.

San Diego

A couple of weeks home with kids warranted a quick trip to San Deigo last week. My 14 year old nephew, Tate, is THANKFULLY at the end of his intense chemo treatments (for bone cancer) that puts him in the hospital often and for several days at a time, so with that said, our family was going to visit during New Years, but Tate was scheduled for his LAST chemo treatment during that same time, so we bumped it up and left immediately after Christmas so he would be at home. But this meant, we had to leave Steve behind to finish year end inventory at work. I actually don't think he minded the quiet house for a few days...and I know he did go see several movies. My brother and his wife caravaned over with me -- so we had a houseful of people at my sisters -- 14 in all. My kids absolutely ADORE their San Diego cousins and have been bugging us for months to visit. With only 2 full days there, and Tate's immune system running low, we just hung out at her house and let the kids PLAY. They were in heaven.

We played lots of Guitar Hero World Tour.....

This is Tate -- I thought he looked great --- if it wasn't for his pale skin and bald head, you wouldn't even know he was fighting cancer.

I was able to take our truck down, so I loaded up their Christmas bikes and ripstiks for them to enjoy!

This is me with my sister Crystal and little brother Bryce.

The boy cousins -- man, they have so much fun together.

Cooper trying to push Joshua....

Everytime we get together the boys would plan a "party" -- pull their money and buy lots of snacks and sit in a room and play video games.

And while the boys played at their party, the girls would dress up and have a "tea party"....complete with little sandwiches and fancy chocolates.

We're all wishing their family a fun time in Florida at the end of this month for Tate's Make-A-Wish trip to the SUPER BOWL and side trip to Disney World. Can't wait for pictures. Wow, what are the chances of 2 sisters being able to compare Make-A-Wish trips...pretty pathetic if you ask me. We'll be counting down to July when we can visit again -- and bring Steve along with us!
