Visualize Success Activity

Had to add another post just minutes apart but different subjects.

Last night in Family Home Evening we did a neat lesson. We wrote out and each person decorated their passage and put up in there room to repeat and implement. I got the idea from Mariwilla (My Aunt) and have 12 others that work on positive thinking and personal improvement.

An Attitude of Faith
Repeat the following passage 3 X's
- before arising in the morning - before school/work
- after lunch - after get back in bed

"I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me" Philippians 14:3
"Heavenly Father is with me, helping me and guiding me."
Visualize Success

Not that I thought this would make an improvement but it made a difference today with me. When I felt frustrated, I repeated this passage and it helped! I visualized the success and Heavenly Father did help me today!

Hurricane Ike

After receiving an email with a few pictures, I felt that I needed to document it. This had a special spot in my mom's heart because her High School girlfriend lived in a town called Port Orange, TX. She was in contact with them constantly through the storm and was listening to every advisory that she could. It happened that she did not have flood insurance and Ike was heading straight to her house. It is amazing how God watches out for us. Her house was saved and had no flooding and minor wind damage where basically it has been explained to me like the picture below. The community is gone, the new school, neighbors houses, daughters house but her house stands. Heavenly Father will protect us when we give all power up to him. He is in control.A single home is left standing among debris from Hurricane Ike September 14, 2008 in Gilchrist, Texas. Floodwater's from Hurricane Ike were reportedly as high as eight feet in some areas causing widespread damage across the coast of Texas. (David J. Phillip-Pool/Getty Images)

Tudy's Mac and Cheese Recipe....

This needed to be documented somewhere, so here seemed to be the best place!!!


There is no recipe but here the best idea of what we can come up with for Tudy's Mac and Cheese:
- box of regular spaghetti boiled
- 3-4 8 oz bags of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- six eggs beaten and mixed with a small can of evaporated milk

Take a 13 X 9 baking dish
- dot butter on the bottom
- about 6 spaced tablespoons
- pour a thin layer of hot spaghetti over the butter
- sprinkle a layer of cheese over the spaghetti
- put another layer of spaghetti and then a layer of cheese until the pan is full
- pour the egg and milk mixture over the spaghetti and the cheese
- if it does not almost cover the mixture
- add more evaporated milk
- sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper
- bake at 350 until it looks familiar.

(For those that have not had this, it is AWESOME!!!)

GPS Garmin

I bought a Garmin, a nüvi® 360 to be exact! Yeah! I am excited. It should arrive just in time for my Birthday next week! Maybe Aaron will wrap it up so that I can open on my b-day, Thursday. Been researching them for a while now. Finally decided that could not work with the laptop any longer in the car. It responds a little too slow for my driving and it is not too safe.
The 360 has all the specs that I should need for a while. Even bluetooth for my phone, so I can talk and not hold the phone or have that little bug in my ear. It has everything in it. I wonder if i have an option to have an Australian voice give me directions?
Navigator. Translator. Entertainer. Tour guide. Garmin's nüvi 360 is your pocket-sized personal travel assistant. This versatile GPS comes with hands-free Bluetooth® wireless technology in addition to the popular features offered in the nüvi 350 — making it the go-anywhere travel companion. Like the rest of the nüvi 300-series, you’re just a few screen taps away from anywhere.
Any Suggestion for a name???????????????
NOTE: Not sleeping well the last few days!!!! Miss my little girl and miss the time that I use to spend with Mauricio.

Men and Action Figures!!!

This reminded me of my three brothers. Especially my brother David. He was our G.I. Joe boy with the camo shirt, shorts, hard hat and black plastic gun. If you know him, I bet you could totally see him like this. Enjoy the laugh!!!!
