Fourth of July Recap

What a fun 4th of July!  Independence Day was on a Friday this year which is so great!  I am big fan of holidays on Fridays!  On Thursday night, we went to Addison to celebrate with my parents.  Their company office is located in one of the hangars at Addison […]

It’s July! (and a Top Ten)

Y’all! It is July! How on earth did that happen? This summer is flying by! This week, we have been swimming, doing some projects around the house, and finally getting into a summer rhythm! We’ve run some errands…These two are definitely best friends–Presley missed her brothers during the school year! […]

Favorite Things Party

My friends, Andrea and Erika, have a “Favorite Things” party on the last Monday of each month which is a lot like my “Random Mondays” except with guidelines (under $10) and a beautiful graphic! 1. Toni and Guy Cleanse Dry Shampoo–I bought this on a whim because I hadn’t found […]

Dirty Girl

If you know me in real life, you know that I can be a little scattered, maybe a tiny bit quirky…so, even though this blog is supposed to only be about the kids…sometimes, it’s just more “real life” to take a total left turn and tell you about last night […]

Summer Reading List

Presley’s Rain Dance

After we dropped off the boys at VBS yesterday, Presley asked if we could go for a walk in the rain.  I mean, why not?  She has been really into taking “long walks” lately, and who am I turn down such a sweet request? “Watch my Umbrella Dance, mama!”   And, then […]

Happy Monday!

This week, the boys will be attending VBS with friends–Presley isn’t old enough for this particular program which is fine with me, because that means GIRL TIME!   The boys are going to have so much fun!  Yay! I can still remember dropping Jackson off for  VBS when Luke was […]

All-Star Baseball Game

Last Wednesday, we celebrated Jackson’s Birthday.  This is what I love about preteen boys–having your birthday on a random Wednesday could be boring, but he had chocolate chip waffles for breakfast and played video games for most of the day.  That is heaven when you are turning 11! We, also, […]
