fourth of july

I am so thankful to be a citizen of the United States of America and for the freedoms that we enjoy here, especially freedom of religion. My priority, as a mother, is to teach my children to uphold the principles and values of the Constitution, to defend it, and to be citizens of much contribution. I pray my family will not take the blessings this country has to offer for granted. Many men have given up their own lives so that we might enjoy the freedoms they fought to protect. I will forever be grateful for the founding fathers and for the military men and women who sacrifice so much.
God Bless America.

a night without kids (this NEVER happens)

Over the weekend, Andrea and Eloy called us at like 11pm to eat at BJ's.
They're so spontaneous.
I decided that might be more fun
 than staying home in my pajamas playing Ant Smashers on a Friday Night. 
Karly has been staying with us and was more than willing to keep an ear out for our sleeping babes
while we lived it up for an hour.
 Andrea and I had root beer after root beer.
It was pure amazingness.
Definitely made up for the revolting egg rolls I ordered.
I've always disliked their food, 
but I may keep going back just for the ever-so-enticing root beer on tap.
 Can you see how crazy I'm getting with my forty-seventh root beer?
Anthony looks a little jealous.
Thanks Garcias!
We had a blast.
And next time, we'll get some quiche.
