I would like to introduce you to the newest "member" of the gymnastics team.  *giggle*  "Her" name is Bobette.  Isn't she pretty?!?!?!?

This poor kid - he's a friend of Jason's and I pretty much forced him into this picture.  He figured it's because he's just that famous :)

This here is another one of those people that I met through my daughter.  I am so insanely glad that Megan started dancing - not just because I love dance or because I love watching her dance or because I think her dance teacher is amazing or because I love the dance studio, BUT....because of the amazing mom's I get to meet.

This picture makes me laugh!  I've gotten most of this family somewhere along the lines now!  Thankfully he was a trooper about it.

This would be another of those doctors that I work for.  You'll have to pardon my expression, just before this picture was taken, he was making some weird (read: incredibly obnoxious) face.  I was in the process of rolling my eyes when the picture was actually taken....

I think the best part of having kids is the number of kids that I get to meet.  I remember when this young lady was little and played soccer with Meg.  I remember the summer that the two of them were inseparable.  I don't think it matters that they aren't as close anymore - I'm glad I got a chance to know her.

You'll have to pardon our appearance.  We had been standing in the rain for hours at a track meet.

Only the gym kids will understand this picture and I don't feel the need to really go into it, but we'll call her the new gym mascot.

She's a little creepy, but that's ok - so am I.

Just another one of those girls I love....


Yep, I forgot again.  So you get this picture of my evil twin....

Don't judge me - this is hard!

I grew up - well for 17 years - as an only child.  I was definitely a spoiled only child and a happy one.  At almost 18 years old, I gained a herd of siblings. The best thing about them is that they accepted me for the most part with very little question.  Over the years, I've managed to be at least relatively close to most of them, but incredibly close to others.  This one - this one I could not live without.  Sure, we've had our issues (don't all sisters?!) but she has saved me from myself more times than I can count.  Love you, Cinnamon!!!

I now know how my mom felt back in the day when a bunch of other kids called her mom.  I gotta tell ya, I love it.  This picture is me with my newest, "other" daughter. 

I happen to love this little peanut with all my heart <3

Please pardon my hideousness.  The young lady with me is Meg's track coach - and a phenomenal coach, I might add.  She's one of those coaches that leaves an impact in a child's life.  I'm glad Meg runs track and even more glad that this woman is her coach!

As for my obvious foulness - in my own defense, I was in my "running" attire as I was preparing to begin my C25k practice for the day.  Good thing I got the picture first....


Yep, some random people are fun.  Like this guy - he even asked me if it was for "like a 365 project."  This was the first time that someone actually knew what a 365 day project was.

The best part of dancing again, I think, was making new friends.  I'm glad I did it - even if it was only for two years.  I loved it and I loved making new friends, like this girl...

And yeah, I was wearing the same sweatshirt yesterday - shut it, it's been a rough day.

Monday, April 16, 2012


Yep, another kid.  I happen to love this kid too - if only I could claim all these kids on my taxes - I'd be frickin loaded.  Anyhoo, I had a picture with her sister a while ago.  I've coached them both and love them both with all of my heart although for different reasons.  They may be sisters, but are two totally different girls.

I gotta tell ya - I think the random pictures are fun =)  This was our waitress tonight at Texas Roadhouse!  I'm sure she thought I was creepy but whatever - it's fun.

Please pardon my appearance.  I was freshly showered but didn't do crap with my hair or face!


Yeah, we both look enthused, don't we.

Do you ever meet someone and instantly know you're going to love them forever?!?!  No, I'm not talking about your future spouse, I'm talking about a friend.  Yeah, it doesn't happen with me either usually.  It is more common for me to despise people and eventually learn to love them.  That, however, was not the case with the young lady in my picture.  I met her a year ago(ish) and I'm pretty sure I decided the minute I met her that I was going to adore her.  I was right, of course!

Yeah, I've got some bad ass hair going on and it does rather appear that I'm trying to dig a hole in her arm, but whatever....we were surrounded by craaaaaazy people :D

Thank goodness for my children's never ending sports and endless lists of friends :)  There's always someone around.  I told this one she could be this is what I got....

If I've learned even one thing over the past 103 days it is that I should never go out in public. Have you noticed a trend here?  I always look frazzled and psychotic.  Awesome.

Yes, I cheated - again.  Sue me.  I couldn't be bothered to get my lazy ass off the couch after I ran today.  Whatever.  So, you get a picture of me and Shrek...

Ok, this one took some work - and by work I mean I had to chase her around the gym, body slam her and then duct tape her feet to floor and use the death grip on her arms to keep her from attempting to escape...apparently being the picture of the day was not high on her list of fabulous things to do.

(please pardon the rotten little turd in the back - he thinks he's funny scamming into my pictures)

Yes, there are two other people in this picture - but that's because "someone" (Jason Christopher Kline) couldn't stand the thought of not butting into my picture :)  Anyway, the other kid makes me laugh.  I coached her sister a hundred years ago.  It amuses me that I have now coached them both.  I am also highly amused at how much they are alike not only in appearance but also in personality.

So, I've always been short.  I was so excited when I quit gymnastics because I actually grew - no really, I did.  The damn shame is, even though I grew a ton, I'm still short.  The worst part is, I think that kids now must eat Miracle Grow on a daily basis because they are ALL taller than me.  WTH??  Case in point....

*sigh*  I'll just roll with - "sweet things come in small packages"  or something like that....


:)  I love photo opportunities!!!!

It's the Jamie's!!!!!!!!!!

This by the way, was take 2 because apparently take 1 was not acceptable.  Although, I kind of (really) look like a freak. :)

So, as expected, we've had many long talks in our house over the past 5 months about gymnastics.  It was inevitable - and slightly stressful, but it is what it is.  The thing that both Megan and I agree on in regard to gymnastics is that at Twistars, we were a part of a big family.  That's not the only thing we agree on, but one of the main points.  Yes, it got annoying sometimes because EVERYBODY knew your business.  I'm not just talking your gym business, I'm talking small town everybody knows what you're doing with who type business.  BUT, we miss that.  

I had to go in there today because Meg needs grips.  I was excited to get a picture with this particular amazing lady....

She is a part of that family I miss.  Her daughter was one of my girls many years ago.  Pretty sure I tortured the hell out of her kid, but the kid still loves me and I still love her.  I had long talks with this mom quite often - not just about her daughter and gymnastics but about life in general.  These people will always hold a special place in my heart.

Just me.  Yep, sort of a cheat, but whatever.  It's my damn photo project, I can do what I want. Many thanks to my favorite hair dresser for the spectacular hair yet again!

I've watched this girl grow from a goofy little girl into a beautiful young lady.  I'm glad she is in my picture for today.  Please pardon my nappy ass hair and incredibly awesome expression.  *sigh* One of these days I will get a DECENT picture of me....

Please pardon the fact that again I look like utter crap.  I should have waited until after I took a shower, but hey - I've been known to post hideous pictures of others so I should definitely post hideous ones of myself...I particularly love my 14 chins...

I love this girl.  She is amazing.  Not only is she a great friend, she is the woman who makes my hair beautiful.
