James had his First Grade music performance and boy did he look handsome! He sang all the songs and was on the first row so we could see him really well. I could not get over the fact that he was really singing and doing a wonderful job. GO JAMES!!
We did have a little something for the kids on V. day just to see the smiles on their little faces!
The weather like usual here in Texas has been great one day and crummy the next so we decided to take advantage of the sunshine and play in the back yard.

Back to my hobby! It seems like I have been away from my scrapbooking forever and I am so glad to get back to it. I would like to say that it was just time that kept me away, you know being to busy, but really I was having a few problems. See I have a few health issues that when I take care of them are no big deal and easy to control, but when I don't every thing gets out of wack. Well I needed to have a real big wake up call and I did so now the moody blues are on the way out and I can focus on the little things I love again. When I would sit down before I would feel agitated and not creative so I would sigh and just leave it undone. That was not like me and there were a few other signs as well like getting angry over little things or being in a hurry to get no where. Oh and then there was not wanting to get off the couch. Yep I was depressed and it showed. Now I do not take meds for depression, I do not need them really. What I did need was to recognize that my health is important and that I can not live in denial or try and wish it away. I am a diabetic, plane and simple and it sucks. Really really sucks, but I am blessed in that right now all I need are a couple of pills some exercise and to eat right to make me feel better and to live a long and happy life. I was angry, and hurt. Why would God let me be this way? I do not know, but I do know that he did not leave me and he does love me and some day I will understand his plan, and in the mean time he has given me the tools to overcome! I have so much to be happy about and it is time I get back to being happy... Watch out world I am back and stronger than ever!

Our first Chinese New Year as a family was very simple and to the point. We dressed up and went out to eat at our favorite Chinese restraunt and the kids loved being in their new clothes and trying out a few chinese phrases on the wait staff who ate it up. Next year we hope to join in on a few more activites , but I think for our first year we had a great time. Enjoy the pictures.

Robyn and Paul, words can not express how truly happy I am that your day has finally come and now you are on the last leg of this journey and about to start a whole new one.
