don’t blink

February 26th, 2015

I have days when I glance and Peyton and have to do a double take. Wasn’t it just yesterday when he could barely talk and only came up to my waist when we hugged? This boy is tall and I mean really tall now! He comes up to my shoulders now and Im pretty tall. He loves music, listening to his dad’s ipod is probably one of his favorite things to do. His favorite music is country and christian and he knows ALL the words to every song on the radio. It’s crazy! He gets it from Jason. I make up words as I go. Peyton loves every sport and has taken up flag football when he’s not playing baseball. Im not sure if I will give into contact football, but if he wants to try Im sure I might give in. I love how he wants to try it all. This morning he asked to take a dance class. Where does this come from?

lunch with his buddies.

surprise day trips to waco are my favorite!

February 10th, 2015

Jason surprised me by taking the day off and planning a day trip to Waco…. to antique shop! He had been planning this for about a month. He doesn’t antique shop EVER so this was a total surprise to me. One of our favorite shows is Fixer Upper which is based in Waco so he had looked up the shops we would visit. He also had a friend of mine in on the surprise. She would pick the boys up from school and take them home with her. He also had her let the little puppy out that I take care of during the week. I was beyond excited and surprised by all of it.

Once we got the boys off to school we stopped at Starbucks then were on the road to Waco!

Yay for day trips!
2015

I was SO excited to see this place! It was small and most of the stuff were things that you could probably buy in Hobby Lobby or just make yourself if youre crafty enough. Cute little shop though!

2015

I was bummed that Junque in The Trunk was only open Friday-Sunday. Boo! I LOVED the tables, doors, and windows they had sitting outside!

We went to a couple more antique stores then went to Buzzard Billys for lunch. It was so good! We fed the fish and ducks while we waited. It was perfect patio weather!

2015

The armadillo eggs were huge! We also had burgers and gumbo. We were stuffed!

2015

Jason had another big surprise for me. He would’t tell me what was going on. It drove me crazy, but I loved it!

2015

Long story short he called one of the guys that work for the Fixer Upper show. He makes custom made signs for them, and Jason had one made for us. We got to watch Jimmy Don do his thing in his workshop. I was so excited!!!!

We didn’t have time to wait for the sign to be finished. Jimmy Don felt bad he was running behind and told us he would ship it to us for free. He also mentioned how he wanted to have the sign hanging up for me to see when I walked into his workshop. He was so nice and seemed really overwhelmed by his new found fame from the show.

We had to get back on the road so we could make home by at least 5:00 to get the boys. I always get nervous when Im away from the boys for a long time. Does that feeling ever go away?

We had enough time though to pull over at Tonkawa Falls for a little while. We saw this place from the highway as we drove into Waco. It was beautiful! It was so hard to leave!

Things that are super cool

February 1st, 2015

We stayed home for the Super Bowl, cooked on the Egg, and took one family fun super bowl selfie before the game started. Jayden was football ready!

2015

The boys ordered up their Valentine boxes…. gone are the days where I can just give them stickers and markers to decorate a box. Jayden asked for Pokemon, (Thank you Pinterest),

2015

and Peyton simply said “Baseball is good”. Thankfully he is easy to please because apperently Valentine’s Day boxes are serious business now! And it seems the older they get, the bigger and better the boxes are! But I didn’t get that info until after our Valentine boxes were done and turned in. Peyton’s box wasn’t too impressive, but when we gone done with it he said “Cool!”
If he’s happy, Im happy!
I love 9!

The Show must go on!

January 29th, 2015

Peyton had his dress rehearsal and did awesome. We are ready!

Waiting patiently for his turn on stage….
2015

The next night was the big show. Peyton did great and didn’t seem nervous at all. I was nervous enough for both of us!

While we were getting everything we needed (cameras, phones,and video cameras), Peyton practiced in the front yard for one of our neighbors.

2015

Before the curtains opened the MCs said a little about Peyton: His favorite hobbies “Baseball, Football, and Guitar”, What inspires him: “Country singers and Jesus”, And the song he was playing: “This is Amazing Grace by Phil Wickham

He was as confident as ever when the curtains opened, and everyone cheered like crazy. He found us in the audience, smiled and then started to play like he does at home. As comfortable as ever. Smiling looking at his friends and back at us.

2015

We went out for a celebratory dinner after the show. My friend Michelle came to see Peyton tonight too. Good Job Peyton! We are so proud of you!
