here is a run down of our vacation:
We left on 07-04-09 in the morning headed for Galveston with three teenage girls...YIKES!!! But we all had a good time. we stopped at Dave and Busters for dinner in Houston
Then we went to Galveston Beach
We drove all the way to Galveston but every hotel was booked so we backtracked from Galveston and called every hotel until we found a suite in LaPorte Texas...and it turned out to be very nice... We unloaded the luggage and went to Kemah Texas to Joe's Crab Shack and the Boardwalk
Then the next day the girls suckered JC into taking them shopping at the Galleria Mall in Houston that thing is huge...We ate at Rain forest Cafe look at the yummy dessert (the price of which sent JC into convulsions but it sure was yummy) and of course finished with a trip to the Candy Store...Teenage Girls on Sugar...YEAH!!!
Finally we got out of the car and onto the boat on Monday morning
The outfits are of course what they suckered JC into buying them at Hollister...he can always tell me no but for some reason he doesn't tell them NO...Oh well that's what makes him a great Dad and Uncle I guess
We had a great time in Progresso and Cozumel and on the cruise in general the girls didn't fight and JC actually smiled in a few pictures...We got to dress up for the Captains Dinner one of my favorite parts of cruising

Then we got home early early Sunday morning just in time to catch exactly 40 winks and get up to go eat with Taylor and the family before he had to go back to his base in San Diego and leave for Afghanistan for about 2 years...

I am so thankful for the health of my newest niece Brinley she is doing so great and she is absolutely adorable. She continues to grow and improve and God is so good, we love her so much and are so thankful that she is such a tough little cookie.
I will try to do better on my blog but i make no promises..

Well the OKC Marathon (19,000 people were walking or running in it) was great and JC did an excellent job 5:18:45. I was so proud of my hubby finishing his first marathon and not really complaining at all.
Haylie, Bayli and I had a great time while we were waiting on him (check out the pics on my facebook)
Haylie had her first softball game on Tuesday night at Greenland at 8:30 but it didn't get started until almost 9:00. I have no pictures to post because it's hard to take pictures and keep the books at the same time, I'm just not that talented. That's OK though her team won and they had a great time. She is supposed to have another game tonight but I'm thinking that's not gonna happen. I opened a twitter account this week and apparently when it asks you if you want to add your friends the Not Right Now button didn't work right because it sent an invitation email to everyone in my contact list...SORRY about that if you got one:). If you have one and you want to follow mine www.twitter.com/tanyadobbs1 (real original right)
I'm sending up extra prayers for my newest niece Brinley this morning please keep her in your prayers, she is on her way to Missouri and possibly having surgery on her heart because her PDA had grown a little bigger...she is however beautiful and so tough she will be fine just keep the prayers coming in... That's about all this week except trying to figure out what to do for the weekend....

We took a small family road trip this past weekend to the Casco Fire equipment Grand Opening...we had fun and JC won some sort of nozzle...After that we went by the Clinton Presidential Library. Haylie did not want to go at first because she thought it would be boring, but once we were inside she had a blast and took lots of pictures of things she though were interesting or just plain cool. I will put them on facebook later. That's all for now hope everyone has a great day and wondeful week.
Smile & God Bless Everyone

So we went to the pet store on 02-19-09 to get filters and carbon and came back with:
1 Golden Algae Eater
All of these supposed to be hearty HARD to kill fish good for new aquariums..
On 02-21-09 we went back and got 3 striped tetras 1 more molly and a snail.
So in case you lost count we HAD 13 fish and 1 snail living in our beautiful aquarium.
We now have 6 fish living in our aquarium..is anyone surprised that the EASY to kill 2 goldfish and 3 striped tetras along with the algae eater are still swimming....and the HARD to kill Molly's and Platys and snail are no longer with us... Of course we would do it backwards.....
But they are doing well and I think JC even enjoys them now..he loves to feed them. Sadly Haylie's Beta had lived his life span and is as of last week no longer with us. We don't think we will put anything in the 5 gallon tank we will just add to the big aquarium...but Haylie hasn't made up her mind yet....
She looked so cute with them after they were on and she didn't hurt at all until about 5:30 that night. I thought we might go eat for our anniversary after she was done..but she couldn't eat so we didn't go anywhere..we stopped by and bought her a waterpick (more money spent..hahahaha) & lots of soup and Jell-O (she had to be on a soft diet for 5-7days)....we came home and started her ibuprofen.. For the swelling they told us she would have .
Of course Friday morning her mouth was swollen shut and it was really hard not to laugh..but she was already hating them and so upset that she had to have them. I tried really hard not to laugh..tried being the operative word there. She did get to stay home from school on Friday but she was miserable until about 2:00 and then her swelling started going down...and once she got used to the rubberbands in her mouth, well from then on...it was constant griping that she couldn't eat any real food and how much she hated them.
Now she's not having any trouble at all and not griping at all unless her rubberbands break in her mouth. But we will see how it goes on her next appointment on May 12th when she gets a bigger wire and they start pulling her jaw further forward...
