Fun Friday

I will probably say this every Friday, but I LOVE Fridays!! hehe. The kids and hubby are going to a Rockhounds Game (baseball for those of you that don't have a clue what that is) with our Church tonight. They are having a family picnic beforehand with all you can eat hot dogs, cookies, chips, etc. Should be a fun night for the kids! I decided to opt out because a one year old + about 5 hours of sitting+ bedtime at 8pm= grumpy baby and parents! I'm fine with not going because that means I get to spend special cuddle time with my baby girl, and have time all to myself when she goes to sleep! Tomorrow should be a fun day as well. Our friend's Robbie and Heather are having a BBQ and poker night for Robbie's 30Th birthday! Unfortunately, hubby isn't going since he will be at the MMA fights at the coliseum, but I will be there and I look forward to seeing a few of my best girlfriends! YAY for great food and wonderful company!
The kids start school Monday!! We went to "meet the teacher" night yesterday and I am very pleased with the teacher's the kids got. Ethan's is about my age and was very sweet! Trinity's was a bit older but extremely cheerful and happy! I think it's going to be a great school year! I still can't believe summer break is already over. It went by so fast. I actually look forward to fall coming! My favorite months are October and November! We always have so much planned during those months and have a blast! I can't wait. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!! God Bless!

Baby Reese...

I just want to say THANK YOU LORD. Thank you for all of the blessings in my life. One of them being my healthy, beautiful children. I was reading a blog today about a mother who lost her baby girl a few nights ago. She was only 2 days old (I believe). Being a mother myself, I could not imagine the pain and heartache she is going through right now and she is going to need all of our prayers to lift her up during this difficult time. When Addison was born she had problems breathing and had to go to NICU for two weeks. Those were the longest two weeks of my life. We didn't know what was going to happen for a few days and I was so afraid of losing her. I just couldn't imagine what life would be like right now without her. God is so good all the time and I know he has a reason and meaning for everything. I will never question that, EVER. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Please keep Baby Reese's family on your thoughts and prayers this weekend. God bless.

My baby girl a year later!!

Addy just two days old...

I just love Fridays! It's the day the weekend starts and I get to spend time with my Hubby and kids! YAY! Anyway, what a long and boring week this has been. We haven't really been up to a whole lot due to me feeling poopy. I think I have a sinus infection. YUCK! I get about a million of these a year so you'd think I'd be used to them by now. If anyone has any remedies for these suckers please let me know! We did get Ethan's school shoes on Wednesday. That was our outing for the week, and what an adventure it was. My baby boy now wears MEN shoes. HE'S 9!!! (tear) It really makes me sad that he is getting so BIG! We started at Rack Room Shoes but didn't find a thing in his size that wasn't over 100.00 dollars. I refuse to spend that much on shoes that he'll only wear for a few months. So we decided to skip the mall (where the other shoe stores are) and drive to Midland to Academy. After trying on about 10 pairs of shoes and us butting heads about what he should get, we found some gray and black Nike's! Thank goodness. They weren't the ones I really wanted for him, but he didn't like the Under Armor or Adidas I picked out. Both Trinity and Ethan are to the age that "mom" can't pick out their things anymore. I guess I'm just not cool enough! At least Addy is still little and I have a few years of dressing her cute!!! So that was the highlight of my week. I'm really looking forward to this weekend! Our Church is having a Back to School Party to reach out to the neighborhood, and hand out school supplies to those who can't afford them. They are going to serve hot dogs and treats, have jumpers, and a karate instructor is going to do a demonstration for the kids! It's such a great thing they are doing and I hope it will help many people! God has blessed my family and I in so many ways, and I am so happy that I might can make a difference in someone Else's life! I was asked if I could help at the event and hand out supplies to people, and I am so glad to be able to do so. God is so good all the time! I hope everyone has a great and safe weekend! GOD BLESS!!!!

Busy Summer

I cannot believe how fast this summer has gone by! In just two short weeks, the kids will be going back to school! It's almost bittersweet though. I love having them home and spending time with them, but I also love being able to go do what I want, and workout when I want! Of course I will have miss Addy here, but it'll be so much fun spending time with her! Anyway...back to our busy Summer! We had a blast! We made two lake trips. One was to Lake Nasworthy with our friends Chad and Angie, and the other was to Lake Ivie with our friends Ryan and Erica. I LOVE the lake. Someday Bobby and I are going to own a lake house and retire there! Seriously! Of course we did the normal summer things like swim, swim, and swim! I bought the kids one of those 30.00 blowup pools and it was so not worth the money! I'm glad I didn't spend the 200.00-400.00 that I was going to! They swam maybe 4 times total. However, the did swim at the Y every single day while I worked out, and at the pool by our house. Well more like a mini water fun! We BBQ'd ALOT, hung out with friends and at grandmas house, and played outside! I guess if I look back, it doesn't seem like we did a whole lot, but it sure felt like it! We also celebrated Addison's FIRST birthday June 8th! She is growing up way too fast. I'm not having anymore children, so I want her to stay little and sweet! She is walking, climbing, talking, and throwing temper tantrums now! She is the cutest thing ever though! Ethan had a birthday as well. My baby boy is now 9 years old and is going to start the 4th grade! He is a young man now. He talks like he is so grown up and is so big! He can wear my shoes and is almost as tall as I am! It's sad how time just flies by. Before I know it they will be grown! Here are a few pictures to show what we've been up to...God Bless
