All About lil o' Me

My photo
Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

Out of the mouths of babes.

My sister is staying with us while she waits to hear about a traveling job.  She brought an old computer for the kids to have, but needed to get the info and pictures out of it. She was downloading the info and pic's on to a portable hard drive, but while it was loading she was going down memory isle, looking at all the pics.  We had all gone to Maui 5 years ago. Since having my first child and gaining a ton of weight I've not lost it. My son was looking at the pictures with us and there was one where I have on sunglasses and my hair is curly (not how i wear it now and how he knows me).  In the picture my daughter (then 2 yrs. old), my hubby and I are making a goofy face and my sons says "look at that fat lady making a funny face".   You could have heard the laughter and then the "oh snap!" comment a mile away!  I laughed, but i think my sister laughed the hardest...I'll have to smack her later for that :-)  My daughter "got it" too and was laughing and then says to my 3 year old son "that's mama!" and my son looks at me, looks at the picture but is too caught up in everyone laughter to say anything.  Meanwhile my heart sank.  Is that how he sees me?  How does he know what "fat" is? Where did he learn that from? I guess i better loose weight. Funny thing is I have been, I've lost 11 pounds since the beginning of the year and will loose more. I have to now! Sigh....out of the mouths of babes!
