Hola from the Land Of Enchantment!!

Hello Peeps, I forgot to let you all know where I've wandered off to... I'm in NM visiting my family!

My sisters 24th b-day was Thursday and my nieces was yesterday so off we went! I've got Syd and lil P with me, the other ladies stayed back with dad ( I think Kait's reason for staying back had more to do with the Boy than I had realized before my departure, otherwise she might have been dragged along too, I'm just sayin!!) Have you ever noticed that when you are around the family that you grew up around, you just instinctively take the position you always have, & no matter how old you are you will ALWAYS see them just as if you were still kids... For instance, I am the oldest sister of 5 . My sister Jor is the baby & we are the only 2 girls. When we are around one another I instinctively boss her around - she acts like a spoiled brat & narcs me out every chance she gets... My brother who is 11 months younger than moi is the middle child & acts as such. He is pushy, moody & acts out to get attention. He is also my mothers favorite child whom can do no wrong, so it forces me to antagonize him to try & get him in trouble- to no avail!!! ... They are both kids to me & we all act just as we did in grade school when we lived together... I have tried to break this bondage of our youth, but there just ain't no sense, its the way it is & always will be I guess- it (whatever 'IT' is) will always be their fault & not mine!!.
I am really curious to know if it's that way for other families too?!
I love being here, but I know why it is that I live 10 hours away!! ;)
OK we are off to the local pizza joint for my niece's party in a few!!







(Okay I'm back & want to share a pic of the kido's waitin for cake, arnt the the cutest!!)

I hope you all are having a fabulous weekend & I'll see ya in Oklahoma!
( Well I will be there, you will be wherever it is that you are when you read my next post that I 'll be typing from my laptop, which is in Oklahoma where I live... :) Hehehe... ( I know, I'm weird, but I heard that knowing it is half the battle!)
Oh & before I forget , thank you so much Ang, for 'Guest Posting' for me whilst I am away!! You are solely responsible for my latest addiction of you tube videos with the cutest kids in them!!! Uhhh, thanx ;)

i live 12 hrs from my fam and miss them, but when i do visit, we revert to all the childhood bickering - then i miss my 12 hr distance LOL :)

Elaine said...

Glad you are having a good time. I agree with the whole family role thing... Drive safe...

lagirl said...

Have fun with your family. Your home awaits when the visit ends.

I am an only child so can't say much about the sibling thing. I can, though, admit that we live several hours from family for a very.good.reason! Love them but get along much better when we're apart. Will my kids feel the same way? I guess I'll know when they grow up and all move away. LOL!

Drive safely! And thank YOU for asking me to guest post. I was honored. :) xoxox Ang

Oh yeah, I'm totally like this whenever I'm around my family.

Hope you had a great pizza party!

Liz said...

Glad that you are having a good time with your family.

I don't get along too well with my brother so I avoid talking to him as much as possible. Sad but true.

Mrs. S said...

Hope you are having a good time! I love NM! And my sister and I are the same way! :)

Valarie Lea said...

I was wondering where you went, the last I saw you were going across the plains of Texas. :)

Shannon said...

I wish I was in NM right now! And I wouldn't know about living far away from family! I live in the same state as my mother's side and we all live very close..sisters family, dad, aunt's and uncles, grandparents and lot's of cousins, all right here! And one cousin lives in the house right next door to me! LOL! I love you tube too! Look up Charlie..it's a little boy and his brother and he's biting his finger...HI LARRY US! Love ya!

Wow looks like you guys had a great time. Its always nice seeing family. I just noticed that you live in Owasso. We lived in Tulsa for about 2 1/2 years.

Emily said...

yeah for seeing family! hope you are having a blast! wish I was off work today visiting fam and not working:)

Jill said...

I am glad to hear that you had fun for the birthdays!
I think all families fall back into their old roles when they get together. I know when my family is together we all act silly and liek a bunch of crazy Italians.

HeatherPride said...

This is so funny about your sibling relationships! I am an only child but my father is one of three boys and my mother says when she and my dad first started dating they were still getting into fist fights!! And they were all in their 20s!! Hahaha

Hope you had a great time!
