Devilrays v. GIants.

We won our 1st game, 12-2 against the Giants!!

Spring T-ball 2010

Well, its begun- our first ever season of T-ball is in it's second week now and I'm exhausted! Don't get me wrong, I love watching little man crank out home runs, that turn out to be single base hits due to regulations and watching a heard of kids run from sporadic areas of the field to grab the ball first and then throw it to a base where no kids are ;-) In all honesty it's hysterical! I'm so proud of JM, he loves the game, he wants to understand it so badly and tries to help his team win every chance he gets!!

Here are a few pictures of JM in action, at both practice and their 1st game! If I ever figure out how to post videos on here Ill have to do that!!

Getting to know me! Thanks, Amanda!!

To play..copy the questions..answer them.. easy enough!

The questions..

1. What color do you wear the most?

Work wise, I would have to say Black- anything can be paired with black, so it just makes the mornings SO much easier on me and getting the three of us out of the house, somewhat in a timely fashion!

2. Would you rather have $10,000 dollars or a dream vacation?

I would have to say the $10,000.00. One, because I would probably check my back account about 1232536 more times than I already do all day at work just to see that # in there. Second because I know how much that would mean to my little family- 10k could do a L-O-T for us!

3. Do you have a weird, quirky or unusual habit?

O0o Lord, lets see.. I have "nervous-stomach/habitual-overeating" disorder when in, around or thinking of being in a car on "long trips". ha. I hardly NEVER wear clothes around my house- lol a little personal, but I hate being restricted by anything and my view is I'm in my own house- but after seeing the news last week about the man charged with obscene nudity after a basically creep-o woman stared into his window and saw him making coffee sans clothes, I at least make sure the blinds are closed now ;-)

4. I really need to start..........?

C-L-E-A-N-I-N-G up around the house!! When I first moved into the Apt., Phil LOVED it because I didn't have my car on the weekends so when he would go to work all I would do is clean- the entire day!!! lol It was sad, it would at times smell like a lysol bomb went off in our place but I loved it! Now, I'm hardly ever at home long enough to do anything productive and lately when I do have extra time im stamping/crafting/playing...defiantly not cleaning.

5. What was the first blog you ever read?
McMama!!! God, I love this woman. She is AMAZINGGGG to say the least and her postings (sometime several a day, you are a blog-god) are never short of a good heart felt story, funny little tidbits or helpful ideas for people of MSC's (many small children). I read her posts daily as part of my morning ritual when I get to work- pretty sure the boss doesn't count that as part of my start-up plan, but to me it's a must.

6. Do you collect anything?

Hmm...I guess I collect crafting supplies? I'm slightly obsessed with papers, pens, stickers, stamps, ribbons, etc. and usually never step out for a day of shopping without hitting up Hobby Lobby or some other craft site. O, and willow people- although most now have their heads re-attached via super glue after growing up with my kids.

7. How old were you when you had your first kiss?7

7th Grade- Sean Williams....we'll that was my 1st BF it sad that writing that just now gave me those butterflies back from 7th grade?

P.S. I facebook stalked him after writing that- he's a total hottie, go me!! haha

8. Do you text/twitter while driving?

Lie- NO, nope- neverrrrrrrrrrr...
Truth- Im bad about txting while driving, but usually just bad about internet-ing while parked at a red light.

How fun! I hope you (ahem...MISTY MAC) post something like this too!! xo

April showers, bring May flowers!

April...o0o How I adore thee! Already you are breathing new life into me just for the simple fact that along with the month change, also came the change of climate around here! (Thank G, I was about to cry if I had to wear sweatpant/socks/a long sleeve shirt/sometimes a hoodie and an extra fleece blanket to bed!)

This weekend is the Bluebonnet Festival, and although it is technically Travis' weekend with the kids, I'm getting to steal them away for the day to go to a photo shoot out in Chapel Hill! I'm so excited! JM is wearing old torn jeans, a white button down and a black cowboy hat while B is wearing (Mind you this is my FIRST TIME EVER - homemade blue tutu) its adorable, if I do say so myself ;-) I can't wait to see how the day turns out and am hoping for amazing weather and well behaved children!!
Good ol' Texas Bluebonnets
B's Tutu!!

Try and tell me that's not the cutest thing you have ever seen??? Yeah, that's what I though!!

On another note, today is Wednesday and I need both fingers and toes to even remotely count the number of things I should be doing besides playing on my blog- or reading friends blogs...or friends of friends of friends blogs. Yet, this is just much more exciting and definitely more entertaining! None the less, I must get back to my 20 oz. ice frappe and mounds of paperwork to keep that ball rolling! Wish me luck!

Easter 2010

What a year this has started off as! So far 2010 has proven to start to shed some light on a very dark 2009! I am so thankful for all our friends, family, and important people in my life that have continued to show myself and the kids unconditional love! You all are what keep me going every day! :}
Easter was a BLAST, the kids enjoyed numerous egg hunts, playing in the park, church service as well as about 4 different Easter meals! All in all everyone enjoyed them selves, and spent the days in good conversation, laughter and outright fun!
Not to mention, we had ourselves a new Easter guest this year...can you guess who?? ;o}
Racing to find the most eggs at Pop's house!

B putting "bunny ears" on the front! (silly goose)
