I'm going to find myself.  If I get home before I get back, keep me here.

Highilghts and Action Shots

Since I have been a horrible blogger, and I haven't gotten everything finished, instead of several really wonderful posts, I'm trunkating and giving one post with medium goodness.  Here's the deal.

We were planning on flying out of Lubbock's airport at 5:45 am on Christmas morning.  However, weather conditions were not favorable due to a big snow storm on December 23rd and a good inch of ice on the roads that didn't melt on Christmas Eve.  However, we did get some good times in the Snow.  We were going to build a good sized snow man, but the snow really didn't pack well.  Here is a picture of Rob throwing a snowball, but notice how the snow ball fell apart.

So, we still let the kids open their presents on Christmas Eve and only did Santa presents Christmas morning because we had promised the children.  We got a nice relaxed Christmas at home, in a clean house.  However, my house was not clean when we left for Georgia on the 27th.    We landed in Georgia, and Papa, Grandmama, and Rob's sister and her family were there to meet us.  The kids had a ball with Grandmama Robinson.  We even got to go to build a bear.  That was a great experience for my kiddos.  We had a blast with them, and then they left from Grandmama's and then Rob's stepgrandmother came to visit, and my kids loved that too. While we were there with Grandmother Pauline, we decided to have a birthday party for Daniel, so here are some highlight pictures from that. 

Daniel with his birthday cake before it was cut. My friend Kim made the cake for him as his birthday gift.  She's amazing!

Rosarita Salsa

Rosarita is launching a new salsa, and I have been granted the chance to try it out.  I really liked it.  The hot is HOT, and I'm too much of a sissy for that, but I really liked the Mild.  It has a nice kick to it, but it doesn't burn my mouth, and the flavor is lovely.  The salsa has a nice sauce and is full of vegetables that give it a rich flavor.  I really liked it and would like to try it again.

This salsa is only being launched in select cities, namely LA, Dallas, Denver, and Phoenix.  If you're someone who lives in one of these areas, this product will be available at select Walmarts and other grocery stores.

I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Rosarita and received a sample to facilitate my candid review. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
