P.E. with Our Tribe!

School hasn't officially started yet, but this week we started P.E. We get up at 6am and are in the gym by 6:15. It was hard for the kiddos to get use to the early rise, but now after a few days, they are finally getting the hang of it. Now I just have to get them back to going to bed at 9pm the night before, in order to get them up without a fight! LOL

We start out with light stretching...
Then we hit the dreadmill and oliptical for some cardio...
 Keidyn finishes off with some weights...

Since we just started I am still figuring out what our weekly routine will be like, so far this is pretty good, but I want to incorporate some other exercises as well.

4th of July Blessings!


We had a wonderful mini vacay for 4th of July week, we spent 5 days @ The Hilton Resort & Spa in Mission Bay, San Diego! It was the perfect spot for much needed R&R. We were so blessed to be able to watch the fireworks show from our room balcony! Thank you Lord for your continual blessings, no matter how stressful life gets You always give us what we need, when we need it!

Good times & gumballs!

Sleepy girl watched fireworks from her bed! Lol

I had a fun time swimming with my baby girl! 

On our way home sweet home!

My Love Completed The OC Half Marathon!

Wow, I am a proud wife! On May 4, 2014, my hubby completed The OC Half Marathon.
The 13.1 mile course was a, big accomplishment for him. Over the past 2 years he has had 3 major surgeries and still has one more to go this year. I am amazed at how our Lord has pulled him through, every step of the way. He gave him all the strength he needed to endure.With God anything is possible! Thank you all for the prayers and support throughout these years.

Celebrating The King!

We had a blessed Easter Weekend, starting off with Good Friday Services! We were blessed with an awesome message and watched as many people gave their lives to the Lord!
Saturday we attended a play @ Lifeway Church, in Rancho Cucamonga. The experience was amazing, as they acted out our Savior's Death & Resurrection.
Sunday morning we woke up early to attend Sonrise service,  which has been our family tradition for 18yrs. We ended the day with dinner & two movies; Heaven is Real & The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. Thank you Lord for such an awesome Easter weekend! HE IS RISEN INDEED!

My Crochet Beach Blanket

After all this time I finally made a blanket for myself! I know we will be going to the beach a lot this summer, so I made myself this little blanket. It's perfect for cool beach night and it's not too thin and not too thick; just right! These are my favorite colors and they look great together. I didn't even make a pattern for this one, just grabbed a hook and started crocheting. I used a larger hook (N 9mm), I wanted the stitches loose and the blanket to be light. I am going to have to make one for the whole family now! 

My New Found Love!

We started hiking and I love it! I thought I was going to die the first time I went up, but now I can't stop; we go twice a week. I can't believe how well the kids are doing and we have so much fun exploring and going further into the mountains. God is so good and how wonderful His beautiful creation!

Birhtday Blessings!

I had such a blessed birthday weekend...

It started off with a fun day with my bestie Candice. We had breakfast @ Mimi's Cafe, manicures, I got my birthday frappacino and we ended off with a little shopping! I am so blessed to have such an amazing friend (sister).

Next, I received gifts and my birthday cup cake from my wonderful husband and children, I never know what I want for my birthday, but they all know me so well, and I realized that everything they got me, I really wanted! LOL

My birthday dinner was so much fun, they took me to PF Chengs; yummy!

I am truly thankful and blessed to have such an amazing family, with all the love and support an old gal like me could have. Thank you so much Oropeza Tribe for such an amazing birthday weekend!

May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. (Ephesians 3:19)

The Extra Long, Extra Wide, Aran Fleck Scarf by Immanuel Designs

Here it is, my new design for this winter! I am in love with this scarf, I designed it long enough to wrap around twice and then made the fringe extra long. The width is extra wide also, it makes it drape better. (in the pic the scarf is folded in half) I used Red Heart Super Saver Aran Fleck Yarn; this is starting to be my favorite yarn. I used a larger hook so it makes the yarn loose and softer than ususal. The measurements are 84 inches long before fringe and 7 1/2 inches wide. I didn't even make a pattern, I will have to work on that next.  

Sweet November Shawl

I just finished this shawl for an order, I love it in this color! Now I'm working on one for myself, perfect for the season! This pattern can be found on Ravelry (by April Draven)
