icy/snow day #1

February 23rd, 2015

I secretly love the excitement of storms coming and the talk of canceling school. The news people talk about it for days but deep down we all know it could either blow by with nothing, or every once in awhile it’s bigger than they thought and Texas shuts down. I mean really. Texans are not built for more than a day or two of snow and ice. But we power through it and make the best of it.

We were hoping for snow, at least an inch or so, but we woke up to ice. Not much fun to look at but the sledding was a blast! We made sure we got outside early enough to enjoy it. Because in Texas it comes and goes pretty quick. My sister lived in Colorado for a couple of years and brought back two sleds for the boys when she moved back to Tx. Best.Gift.Ever! Apparently they sell them for nothing in their local Target.

One of these days we will venture out and find a big hill, but until then…. rope him up and giddy up! He’s such a good Daddy!

Soccer season has begun, and a few other iphone things

February 21st, 2015

Soccer season is upon us again…. well when it’s not raining, icing, or snowing. Jayden was made to wear soccer uniforms. I mean honestly!

2015

Great game Jay! He brings half the field home with him.

2015

1st grade had a field trip to the Perot museum. I had fun chaperoning him and his friends…. It’s also nice when the moms are friends too!

2015

Every once in awhile Jason will take my phone and get a few pictures of me and the boys, which I am always so thankful for. I love seeing mommy photos. Being the one that is behind the camera 99% of the time it’s nice to see this side too!

This bottle of wine is greatness! Cheers to all of my fellow middle sisters!

Happy Loving Day

February 14th, 2015

When Jayden was about three he called Valentines Day, Loving Day so it has forever changed at our house. I was so thrown off by the school parties that I let the boys open their presents the day before Loving Day. Both of them got UA shirts and a small box of candy.

The classroom parties were a lot of fun! Jayden class made a craft, made ice cream sundaes, played tic tac toe, and read their Valentines.

Peyton’s party started right as Jayden’s was over, which I am so thankful. Last year I was going between both parties at the same time. I loved walking down the hall and seeing the older kids Vday boxes lining the hallway. I know I will miss these years one day.

2015

The struggle is real waiting to eat a Krispy Kreme doughnut. :|

2015

They went through their Valentine boxes and played tic tac toe with conversations hearts. Whats with the hearts saying “text me” and “ur hot”? I must be getting old.

2015

The sugar consumed today was overwhelming! It took everything in me to just “Let it Go”!

2015

The next morning (the “real” Valentine’s Day) I cut out hearts in premade pancakes…. please don’t judge, soccer and baseball run our lives on Saturdays.

2015

the boys pretended to open their Loving Day presents again….

They made Valentine’s for Gpa, Bunny & Poppy.

Vday flowers from my three sweet guys!

and Jason took me out for an early Valentine’s date. So early that we beat the Vday crowd and got home before the sun went down! We’re fun! Thank you for babysitting Grandpa!

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!

2015

2015

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!!!!

2015

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!

don’t blink

February 7th, 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.
