Take a peek into our life as a big family in Houston, TX. Welcome to the electronic journal for the Texas T family. This blog was created to share some moments of our life with you. Often having 11 children, homeschooling, and being incredibly active in our Catholic faith we are asked “How do you do it?” We invite you to look around, sign up as a follower, and peek into the answer to that question. Remember we are not a perfect family; but I won't post the bad stuff.
Thanks for visiting, Neen

Happy birthday to me!
Another Birthday came. As much as I hate that they keep coming, they still do. J was out of town for the day but the kids made sure I still had a special day. Chocolate covered strawberries . . . my favorite . . . smart kids.
They sang to me and everything. Then we dipped the berries and added whip cream.
It was so yummy, but even better was the time with my kiddos.
I just love this face. Jumba is my precious. He got mad at me the other night and broke my heart. "I hate you mommy!" I know he didn't mean it but it still broke my heart to hear it.
Jason came home but Pooker had to work. We took the whole crowd out to dinner to celebrate. The Tobias family came with us. It was so nice to have Jason and Larry both making sure I felt special. I had a drink and cake. It was fun. We decided to eat where Pooker works so that we were all together.
All the kiddos were squeezed into a little booth. Each one getting their own drinks and needing to run to rest room constantly.
My boys. I love each of them and it fun to watch them interact. They are very different from the girls.
Even Mr. Troy was hanging with the big boys.
Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear meeeeee, happy birthday to me.
Pooker even made her peers come and sing to me.
It might be sad to think that I am a year older but the cake made it all better.
