Anyone who knows me knows that I love my Dark Grey Isuzu Axiom. Well, old faithful has been giving problems lately. In spite of the problems she has been giving me I really found it hard to let her go. The Axiom is the first car I truly bought for myself and she has really not ‘til recently let me down. That car could hold everything. When we were moving into our house I know I fit everything but the kitchen sink in the back. Well, like every good thing, the time I spent with my Axiom must come to an end. I am heart broken but I will always have the memories. When one door closes another always opens. I had to get rid of the Axiom but I have gained a new car. Last night I got a Scion XB. I am not one to blend in and choosing this car is the perfect example of that. It was the only car I could find that was a more fuel efficient equivalent to the Axiom and I am very happy with it. Here is a pic I took today before it got dark.

Woo Hoo!!! Thank goodness it's Friday. I feel like this week has dragged on and on. I am so glad the weekend is here so I can relax. I am going to try to get my house in order. Yah Right, I say that every weekend. What I really think will happen this weekend is: I will probably take the kids to the park. If I have any money I will probably go to the movies and the house work will be pushed to the side. I think only the more important things will be done. You know, those areas of the house that people see when they come and visit. The other day I bought a new camera. I had to buy one because someone who will remain nameless broke my old camera. (EZZY) So anyways, I now have a Kodak easyshare DX740. So far I am loving it. Here are some pictures taken at Niah's B-day party with the new camera.

Ok everyone, I still have no DSL. I will be calling and raising hell with Bellsouth today. I am irritated now. Anyway, here is the Layout of Gavin and Nayshawn that I promised. I am trying my hand at the new freestyle scrapping. I think I like this one. I will definitely try it again.

Well, after being layed up for a week. I am finally up and running again. I am a little slow but just feeling good enough to do things is enough for me. I think I over did it this morning. So I am going to be taking it easy for the next couple of days. Sorry, I have no pictures to post with this entry. I am having some issues with my DSL and they are telling me that it will not be up for another couple of days. Oh well, that is just how things go sometimes. At least I am not spending all my time on the internet and I am able to do some other little things that I have been meaning to do. I created a really cool Layout of Nayshawn and Gavin (my brother). But since my DSL is not working and I don't have the images here at work, I will have to upload it at a later time. The layout is about them being so much alike. Their personalities and their interests are pretty much the same. They were both born in the same month just one day apart. Gavin's b-day is May 4th and Nayshawn's b-day is May 5th. I can't wait to show it to you guys.

The other day I was showing my mom my layouts and she brought up something I didn't really notice before. I scrap more pictures of Niah than I do Nayshawn. Now, I try to be as equal as possible but some how I still manage to do more layouts of Niah. I think it is just because she is always willing to pose of the camera and he is not always willing. So I tend to have more pictures of her. So last night I did a really nice layout for Nayshawn in honor of his Sixth Birthday.
On a good note, I received the camera I ordered today. I am so excited. I have already started snapping away. I will upload some of the pictures later.

Anyone who knows me has heard about our upcoming trip to Disney. For those of you who haven't heard now you know. We are planing our family vacation to Disney this July. We are all very excited. I think I am a little more excited than the kids though. I can't help it, I just love vacations. This year we will be staying at the Disney All-Star Sports Resort. I know the kids are going to love it. The entire hotel is sport themed including the pool. Aslo, we will be doing three parks this year (Disney, Epcot & MGM). Exhausting, I know but well worth the looks on Nayshawn's and Niah's faces as they enjoy their vacation. Anyways, here is a layout I did of the trip last year and I am currently working on a mini album of the entire trip. That is going in slow motion. I am sure we will go on this year's trip before the album is complete. Oh well.

Well, family day turned out great. The kids had fun. We brought my girlfriend Tasha and her son Mekhi along with us. I think everyone had a good time. I know I did. We played video games, and rode the rides and ate hotdogs and hamburgers. They even had ice cream which came in handy because it was so hot out. In the evening Nayshawn and I went to see the Live In Color Dance show. The dancers were great. I think the only thing missing was my brother Gavin. He is in the group but could not perform in the show because he is doing an internship in Atlanta with PWC. Nayshawn really enjoyed the show, he is still dancing. His hip hop dance teacher performed in the show. I think that made it even more exciting.

Well, every year the company that I work for has a Family Day for the employees. They rent a nice ventue and the employees come with their families and have a good time. This year they have rented a place called Boomers arcade from 10am to 3pm. It should be a fun experience. I have told Nayshawn and Niah that we are going tomorrow and they are really excited and ready to go. However, I am not sure that I am ready. Although Ezzy will be there to help me, it is a lot of work monitoring them. Niah is still pretty small and gets really upset when she can't figure the games out. Nayshawn is noramally so excited to be there that he become really hyper and is a little hard to control. Well, wish me good luck. Here is a picture of Nayshawn and Niah. I took it backstage before their dance recital two weeks ago.
