Friday Randoms

Happy Friday!!

We are so glad it's Friday and I have a three day weekend which makes it ever better!  Although I will be spending my day off at doctor appointments. Boo.

Tomorrow we are both going to the sold out Ranger game.  We are not going together....Heather is going with Jared's family and we are going with Adam's brothers.  Heather bought all those cute Ranger's shirts a couple of weeks ago I decided I needed a new one to.  I ordered this one.  It is a little big but I am going to wash and dry it and hopefully it will fit better.  

I ordered some Bath & Body Works last week and it came in this cute box.  I think it might be knew I haven't noticed it before. I thought it was cute.  I love the wall flowers from there.  It was my first time ordering the car freshener.

We went to my parents house the other dad and my dad was mowing.  Ace loved sitting on the lawn did Miss Aydrie.  But he was scared of it when my dad actually turned it on and tried to take him for a ride.

Ace loves Jaydens cowboy boots.  He has to put them on when ever Jayden is wearing them.

I was so upset last weekend when I went to put on my favorite turquoise necklace.  I got it out of the bag and it broke. I nearly cried. I wore this necklace all the time.   Luckily, Heather knows someone that can fix it.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Moo Cows

When we were at my mom and dads Easter Sunday (which explains the confetti in his hair) Ace got to get up close to the moo cows.   He got a kick out of this and tried to get as close as he could.

He recently learned what a cow says. Ha!  We ask him what does the cow say and he says moooo mooooo. He is a smart little boy.  There have always been cows in this field but this is the first time he really paid attention to them.

He followed the cows down the fence line until they walked away from the fence.  Then he stood there and said bye bye to them over and over again.

He is learning new stuff every day. It really is amazing how their little brains can soak up so much stuff and remember it.

Hope you are all having a good week!

Five Hours!

This past weekend was great!

Friday we had our monthly girls dinner. This month we had it at our mom and dads and dad made us some yummy hamburgers. We were missing some girls this month but we had a few extra guys join us this week...Austin and Ace came with me.   While we waited for our hamburgers to be made we stuffed our faces with some yummy bean dip Jordan made and my corn dip. It was a cool Friday night so we didn't stay outside to long. 

Saturday we had a lazy day and stayed around the house most of the day. We got up Sunday and went to Adams parents for lunch.  His parents bought a swing set for the kids so we spent our afternoon outside while the guys put the swing together. 

So, while the guys put together the swing there was lots of playing going on.  Aydrie and Ace love being outside!  They had lots of fun and were very tired when we got home that night.

Finally five hours later the swing was done.  Yes, it took them five hours to put together the swing!  They only had to take it apart once or twice because some screws were in the wrong places or a part was put on wrong. Ha!  Oh, and they stopped to have lunch.  The kids were very excited to finally get to play on the swing!  I think they are going to love having one over there.

Hope you had a great weekend!

Happy Friday!!

When we were at my cousin’s wedding a couple of weekends ago Aydrie and Ace stayed with my SIL.  She is so good to them and made sure the Easter bunny left them some goodies. 

Last week Adam and Austin went fishing at Jared’s and Aydrie and Ace went to visit Heather while I went walking and got some stuff done around the house.  I love getting pictures of the kids when they are not with me.  They were having a great time with Aunt Honey!  Ace looks like such a big boy in this picture. While they were with her they got to see her puppies and new kitty’s.  They both had fun.  The boys went fishing again this week and Heather came to my house. She was nice and gave Aydrie and Ace their bath while I did laundry and got the house picked up.  It was so nice!  Thanks Heather!

We are still looking for wild flowers. We have 8 or 9 more to get which we will be trying to find this weekend.  We have been looking for this flower for the last couple of weeks and the only places I saw it was on the way to work on the highway and I wasn’t going to stop on the side of the highway to get.  Well, last Friday I was on the way to work and found one close to our house so I pulled over Friday night and got it. I was so excited to finally get this flower!  Ha!  The funny thing is that now everywhere I go I see this flower…go figure.  I never thought I would all get excited over finding wild flowers.  But I guess when your twelve year old has a school project that has to get done that is what happens. 

Heather made some yummy cupcakes this week and brought us a couple.  They were banana pudding cupcakes.  They were good.  Ace loved them!

Heather is very excited that baseball season is here again.  She stocked up on some cute Rangers shirts last week.  These shirts are so cute!  We will both be going to our first Ranger game this season next weekend.  Go Rangers!

Have a great weekend!

Austin's Birthday Party

Austin turned 12 on April 1st.

He is and will always be our April Fools baby no matter how old he is.  This year he wanted to have a birthday party and invite friends from school.  So, this past Saturday he had a bowling party.  There are not a lot of options here in our town so that is where we decided to have it.  

He got to invite 10 friends.  I let him invite five boys and five girls...yes he invited girls!  I couldn't believe it either! Up until now all of his birthday parties have been celebrated with family only.  This was a huge deal to me and I was a nervous wreck all day on Saturday. 

I was mostly worried that his friends wouldn’t be able to make it.   Well, I worried for nothing because his friends came and they had fun bowling.  Austin had a great time and it was the easiest birthday party ever!  I paid a fee to have the party and they did everything.  All I had to do was bring the cake.  It was so worth it! 

We took Aydrie and Ace to Adam's mom while we were at the party.  I didn't want to have to chase them around.  Heather and Jared joined us and even bowled a couple of games.  My mom stopped by and so did April and Jayden.

The party turned out perfect and Austin enjoyed his 12th Birthday!

Gone Fishing

So, recently Austin has discovered a new hobby.  He wants to go fishing every chance he gets.  Lucky for him my brother and dad like to fish also so they would take him.

Well, a couple of weekends ago Adam discovered that he likes to fish too.  So, now they both want to go fishing every chance they get.  I love that these two found something they both like and can do together.

I have a feeling someone else is going to like fishing also.

But until he is old enough he will just have to sit and watch.  Last weekend we went fishing with the boys and set and watched and enjoyed being outside.  Aydrie and Ace had their cups and some gold fish and they were just as happy as could be. 

I am thinking we will all go fishing again real soon.

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday we went to my moms to visit.  Our family Easter was postponed this year and we are planning on getting together at the end of the month if everything goes as planned.  

So, before the rain the kids had fun with confetti eggs. Do you buy confetti eggs?? I really don't like them because they make a big mess but the kids love them!  I have one more box hidden I will have to pull out in a couple of weekends.

Aydrie and Ace love to be outside and we stayed out as long as we could.  Ace was really interested in these flowers and kept smelling them.

We tried to make it home before it started to rain but of course we didn't.  We spent the rest of our day at home relaxing.
