Winston had 4 tests last Friday! This is the life of second grade. Well, yesterday he busted through the door so pumped up because he made 100's on all of his tests!!! So in order to celebrate, I put out the china and we had a "fancy" celebration dinner. We were so proud of him and more importantly he was proud of himself!

Oh, To Live At The Beach!

The fam just got back from Gulf shores. It was wonderful. We rented a beach house with some friends and spent the whole week just chillin'!!! It was heaven! Here are some pics that I pulled off my camera--Ty still has to pull the pics off his! Enjoy and try not to be jealous ;0!!!!!!!

I feel so bad because I haven't really written anything about the boys this summer. It has been so crazy around here! The boys have really enjoyed their trampoline this summer. We were able to put it under a big tree, at our new house, so it gets lots of shade and isn't so hot. They have also figured out that it is really fun to take the sprinkler and hook it to the net of the trampoline so they can jump and get wet at the same time. It makes it kind of slick but I think they think its better that way. Today Winston finally got the courage (after I told him I would pay him $5) to do a flip. I was so proud of him. He tends to be on the cautious side but today he to the plunge! Here are some pics of the boys and their trampoline!!!!

Winston and some mid flip action!

Wyatt and Missy Girl--they are both very ornery!!

Trip To The Lake!

Well, we have been to the lake twice this summer. The boys just love it!! My mom has been living with us since the beginning of June so that has made their summer lake fun even better. There is just something about the lake that makes my family happy--we are making great memories!

His Idea...I Promise!

Winston has been taking piano for three years now. He just loves it...well sometimes. This year at Christmas he asked if he could invite his friends over and have a piano recital. Of course, I said YES!!! So we talked to his precious piano teacher and she worked with him on some songs and he also sang "Away In The Manger"! We then had cookies and cocoa afterwards. It was the most precious thing...his friends were so sweet and he did a great job. I was a proud momma!!!

Here are a few of Winston's friends who came to listen to his sweet music!

This is Winston and his piano teacher, Ms. Mika, playing a duet!

Taking a bow!!

This Is For You Dad!

OK...I am doing this for my dad because Wyatt's birthday is about to role around again and I STILL HAVEN'T POSTED WINSTON'S BIRTHDAY! I know, I am awful...time just gets in my way. So here it is...I am even trying to remember what his party theme was...oh yeah...JUNGLE!!! This is pics from his 7th birthday...he is such a sweetie!!!

Wyatt crawling through the tube...oh fun!

Make a wish, baby boy!

Hello Out There!

I know, I know, it has been forever since I've blogged. What can I say, life has just had us going in circles. Every time I thought about sitting down to write--something would barge in and take its place. So anyway, enough with the excuses--I have a little time right now.

Last Friday was pet day at Wyatt's school. Ty took our beagle, Missy, to school so Wyatt could show him off. After show-n-tell was over, Ty brought Missy and Wyatt to the store AND being the "nice" mom that I am--I let Wyatt and Missy stay for the rest of the afternoon. (I know--I'm losing it!) But I must say that it ended up being an enjoyable afternoon--look below and you will see why!

Well, what you do for one you must do for another. So Monday I took Missy to Winston's class. She had a ball and now I really deserve Mom of the Year!

Do you see Missy--I promise she's there!

Play-Doh Party!

This morning we sat down and made play-doh candy! We imagined that we worked at the candy factory--our creations were wonderful! What a fun Saturday morning!

I told Ty to make sure that my head wasn't it any pictures because I had a serious case of bed head!

Silly Boy!

Last week Winston came into our room and said "Like my new summer outfit?" Ty and I started cracking up! He can be so funny!

That is my shirt--he put his legs through the arm holes! The glasses are paper and are from his 100th day of school party! He has such a great personality and I just love him to death!

Happy Love Day!

This is going to be a fast post because hubby is taking pictures at the 9th grade dance tonight and I am his assistance. We are going to dinner before, so I need to get ready. I wanted to say that I am so in love with my man. He is such a wonderful husband--that I don't deserve. Twelve years ago today he asked me to be his wife. It was a decision that changed my life forever. The past twelve years have been full of ups and downs but I can truly say that Ty has loved me through it all. Thank you God for giving me such a humble, patient, loving, sexy, hard working, determined, calm, funny, and Godly man. I feel so loved! What a great day!

And The Winner Is......

Last night Winston had his Pinewood Derby race for cub scouts. This was his first time to race and he was so excited. He "worked" really hard on building his car and Ty worked EXTRA hard on tweaking the car, if you know what I mean ;) !!!
Anyway, Winston won first place--he went undefeated. I was a proud momma. Can I say that I have a great son? Every time his car won he never got overly excited, he would just calmly pick up his car with a slight smile and walk back to start of the track. He really is a humble kid. He reminds me so much of his dad. They both are calm, patient, caring and loving. I know that Winston doesn't realize this but I learn so much from him. I am so blessed to call him my son.

Wyatt Says!

Today Wyatt came into the bathroom and said, "Mommy, I mean to tell you but brother called me fatso!"
I started laughing because he meant to say "Mommy I don't mean to tell you but brother called me fatso!"

I guess this is his way of "not tattling!!"

I've Been Tagged!

My best friend Katy tagged me.

Here are the rules:
1- Choose the 4th file on my computer with the 4th picture.
2-Explain the 4th picture that is in that folder
3-Tag 4 people to do the same 4-no cheating (cropping, editing, etc.)

Well I am not going to tag anyone because I am so bad about doing that--so if you want to do this--please do! Here is my picture.

These are my beautiful boys. This picture was taken last year around Easter and yes those are real bunnies in the baskets. My wonderful hubby took this picture and I love it because it is so natural. They are not posing just laughing and enjoying life--those are the best kind of pictures.

Be Careful What You Ask For!

We have been out of school for two days and now we are going to be out for another. The boys have been in sledding heaven. I guess God answered my prayers because I kept asking Him for a snow day! It has been really nice being home and enjoying the boys--sometimes just being with the fam is all a girl could as for!

4 Year Old Boy For Free!

This morning I took the boys to the Doctor. Winston needed to have a wart removed and Wyatt had a follow up appointment. Let me just say that Wyatt was totally out of control. I have never been so embarrassed by him, as I was today. He was being so loud and everything I told him not to do he did. At one point, he was telling Winston very loudly that the Dr. was going to pull his pants down and look at his pp. He kept pointing to it and laughing. The doctor was in the room during this conversation--ugh! I wanted to bust his little butt right there. (don't judge me--you would have wanted to do it too!) Anyway we got home and dealt with it--but I swear if that child ever does that to me again--I am giving him to you!
