How funny is this picture...! She had a mouth full of jelly beans and she doesnt have any back teeth so she swallows them whole.. So this is a picture of her seeing me coming to "help" her with those:)

Everyone figuring out what their goodies were.

She was soo cute.. she was so excited to talk to all the other kids and be out in the sun.

She had a hard time hanging on to her basket so Adam was her wingman.

So on actual easter morning this is what Ryan got from the easter bunny. She got sidewalk chalk, a toddler flashlightand Eggs full of sweet tarts.. (her favorite)

So this is our Sunday Easter morning picture.. so after church we were going to take a family picture. Ryan fell asleep right at the end of church and Adam was changed so fast that I had to represent the family alone.

Twilight New Moon Eclipse

I Love love love these books! such a fun and different story. If you haven't read them you are missing out. I am making my sister Bonnie read them so I have someone to talk to about them. I actually have to force myself to Not call her and see where shes at in the first book. She only has 4 little boys, its not like she's busy or anything:)

The movie comes out Dec 12, 2008 (Yipeeeeeee!) and this is the Cullen family above.. holy Hotties! from left to right: Carslile, Esme, Rosalee, Emett, Edward, Alice and Jasper. I am soo excited.
This is the girl who will play Bella Swan

And this is the guy who Should (in my opinion) play Edward. Oh well. "Sedrick" (below who will play Edward) will do a good job too I'm sure.

So here's the question for all of you vampire lovers!!! who are you voting for Edward or you know who? (Bonnie dont read the comments they will spoil it for you!)

and heres a cool video from the movie shoot

Adam scored some sweet Jokleys.

Mexico-Playa Del Carmen

Playa Del Carmen was our favorite place by far! We loved it better than Cancun. They had the funnest shops both ritzy and local. And this was the BEST fruit and it was so cheap.

I f you aren't careful they will not give you back the right amount of change. So this little lady was getting our change and she was just so cute i didnt say anything.. she got an extra dollar from us. I figure is was part of the whole experience.

I got mango, pineapple, coconut, papaya and honeydew YUM
We laughed at this pretty hard. "& Deli" was attached to everything.. even the drug stores. I think its like how every store in New Mexico is followed with "& Pawn". haha i.e. Laundry & Pawn

These are sinks. They were so cool. If I had my own house I would put these in my bathrooms.

Mexico - Cozumel

We took a bus from Cancun to Playa Del Carmen and then took the 30 min ferry out to an island called Cozumel. This is where all of the cruise ships dock. We went snorkeling in the warm water and saw the coolest fish. There were a lot of deep sea diving teams below us practicing. I guess Cozumel is the best place to go scuba diving.

The boat we went on was a glass bottom boat. You could see everything.

Here's Adam cruising for a bargain.

Once in a while you'd come across a sweet place like this. I mean really ...who can afford to live there? So dreamy.
We had to give a shout out to "NACHOOOOOOO!" (libre)

Mexico - Chichen Itza

Here are a few pics from Chichen Itza. I have so many awesome pictures that it was difficult to choose which to post. These ruins are thought to have been around since 600 bc.

These people were soooo interesting. Every corner represents a season and at the base of the stairs is a head of a snake. The triangular ridges up the stairs reresents the body of the snake coming down from heaven to bless ( fertalize) the soil for the coming crops. at jsut the right time of day you can see the shadow of the snake perfectly. They used to let people walk up the stairs but last year a woman fell from half way up and died.

These are on the side of the obervatory. They had all the stars and constilations figured out.

This was the Convent I believe.

Mexico - Mayan water sink holes

The Yucatan Peninsula for the most part doesnt have much soil, it's mostly rock. (which is why if you go there you'll notice all the trees are short and all the same size, they dont have the soil to fully grow). So when it rains the water goes straight through the rock and forms under ground caves where the water build up. They can be hundreds of feet deep. All of the Mayan cities were built around these water holes. Here is one we went to on our way to Chichen Itza.

There were also stairs down to the bottom and you could swim if you wanted.

Mexico -The Beach

I am going to do this in a couple of different sections. Here was our beach by our hotel. It was so great. It was a little overcast most the time but for us whities that was probably a good thing. It was still so warm and extremely humid.
