UR Universal Royalty

Mamma Maria and her 6 sons, Marcos, Luis, Daniel, Nicholas, David, Juan – all in the band UR (Universal Royalty)

These guys are incredible, humble, funny, talented and such men of God – it was a pleasure having them here are out house for dinner. They were all at our 7th Annual Crosswaves Camping Trip last weekend – it was amazing.

Now they are off to Swaziland, Africa (or Swamboli as I incorrectly said it!) next week and I will be reading their online journal regularly to see what God is doing in their lives and the lives of those they touch in their travels

On a side note, Twix (who ripped her toenail off a week ago) is all better and back to her sassy little self – can’t believe it’s been a week since I last posted.


Twix has a Boo- Boo – and we’re off Camping for 4 days

POOR Twix – she ripped one of her toenails off yesterday – OUCH

Not a peep or whimper, but I got off my bed (was furiously working on client website stuff before leaving for a 4 day camping trip along with 250 other people for our 7th annual Crosswaves Camping trip) and went out into the living room and thought I had entered a murder scene.


Took me a second to figure out which dog it was, as Twizzler had blood on her too (from walking around) but as soon as I looked as Twix (lying by the computer desk) I knew it was her – her outside front toe nail was pointing 90 degress out from the norm (getting squeamish again just typing this!) and hanging on by a thread.

I live 5 mins from the vet (phew) so got her there fast, they removed the toenail, gave her antibiotic shot and bandaged it up

Now she is getting uber lots of sympathy as she looks like she has a mini red cast (it’s actually soft/bandage)

She is also very adept on 3 legs!

Off camping now – no POTD till next week!

At The Port of Miami on Sunday as Laura (far left) and her daughter Ambra (2nd from left) were about to get onto the “Freedom of the Seas” cruise ship.

I have known Laura since we were both pregnant with our 2 girls – both due in January 96′ She lives in California, we live in Florida – sort of polar ends of the USA.

We’ve managed to get together in Boston in 1997 when they were both 15mths old, then again in Orlando (Disney) is 2001 when they were both 5 years old and now finally again when they are both 11 years old!

Easter Meeting

All of us are taller than Laura now 😉
