It Doesn't Get Any Better Than This....

:) :) :) :) We have had an AWESOME week! Like I mentioned before, Miguel has a new schedule at work...9:00a.m.-6:00p.m. And with the exception of one day where I believe he got home around 7:30 (he was at his parent's house), he's been home in time for dinner and the sun is still OUT! lol It's just SO nice! We all get to eat together, we sit and watch tv or just talk or he plays games with the kids...he's helping me around the house with stuff I need like bathing Mikey. It has just been SOOO nice!! I really, really, REALLY hope and pray that the new people who have taken over his old "job" will hang in there and keep doing a great job so that Miguel gets to be home with us more. Really, I think that IF something were to happen where they weren't doing so great without him...I don't think he'd go back. Even he has said how much better it is for us all...for HIM...he gets more time to's just better all the way around! Anyway, on Saturday we had plans to take Lij to Sea World since the weekend before when he was at his dad's, we took Mikey. So we made plans to leave Mikey at home with my mom and to spend the day with Lij. Well, at the last minute Miguel decides that he is going to get us season passes to Fiesta Texas too!! YAY! I thanked him with a bunch of hugs and kisses ;) Lij was excited too although he's not much for getting on rides. Which is why we had gotten the Sea World ones to begin with. But I like getting on rides...not the REALLY scary ones, but I "will" get on some. And there are alot more kiddie rides for Mikey at FT too. Oh and that new Wiggles World which we went and checked out and just know that Mikey is going to LOVE it!! I cannot wait to take him and see the look on his face! I managed to get Lij to get on this ride with me...they're these big "pool balls" and they spin around and you can also make them spin more by turning this "wheel" inside. I thought it'd be okay since it didn't go UP which is something he just didn't want to was wrong! LOL You should have seen the look on his face. I was just praying he wasn't going to puke on me! He did NOT look like he was having fun at all!! It makes me feel kind of bad because he's so afraid of SO many things and I don't want him to miss out on having a good time. We also got on the Ferris Wheel and he looked SO nervous on there too! Poor thing! After a while though, I think he "loosened" up...when he saw we weren't going to plummet to the ground! We did a few more rides including a water ride where I got SOAKED!! So much for spending 30 minutes flat ironing my hair in the morning! It was SO hot though! We all dried off in NO time at all! We had a great time and afterwards we came home and showered and got ready for church. It was a good day :) On Sunday, for the first time in I can't even remember when...Miguel was actually home by TEN a.m. YES, TEN!! lol He goes in at 4:00 a.m. on Sundays and sometimes isn't home until like 5:00. We all got to eat breakfast together and we just hung out all day...we napped on and off on the played Xbox with the kids. In the evening, after dinner we headed over to Target and I found this really cool metal pail in the picnic section. It's meant for cutlery, but it was PERFECT for all my pens, tools and deco scissors! I forgot to say that Chon had come over on Friday and we hung out and we had also gone to Target and I bought this shoe organizer which was just PERFECT for putting all my diecuts, paper borders, stuff like that in. I purged and reorganized my sb area AGAIN...not quite done yet though. So I'll post some pics when I get everything in its place. Umm...I think that's about it. I woke up pretty early this morning and I've gotten quite a bit of my cleaning done...even got my ironing out of the way so maybe I won't be cleaning the WHOLE day and I can start my page for this week's challeng on our Blog Hop. Here's a few pics from Fiesta Texas :)

Oh, fun!!! So glad you all got the FT passes cause now we can all go together or just us and the kids.

LOL @ Miguel with Scooby Doo. If he still had the long hair he'd totally look like Shaggy. Ha ha ha

Can't wait to see what you did with the shoe organizer. Maybe I'll get one too...ha ha ha
