I'm a little sad that this week is over.
Next week is the last week of school.
Can I really have an almost 2nd grader and an almost 1st grader?!

The Lego Store. A M A Z I N G.

Cousins came too!

Tyson brought home his daily journal. It was one of the best reads ever.

My brother-in-law owns his own chimney sweep business. Notice the hat?

I love to read.

This man completes me. {and oh my goodness we were so stinkin' young!}

My beautiful mother-in-law. 

Stuart's homemade trail mix. Peanut M&Ms, cashews, pecans, macadamias, honey roasted peanuts and raisins. Yes, it's the most expensive trail mix ever.

Family movie time.

Venison kabobs. YUM!

Memorial Day fun!

My nephew and I being silly.

First swim team practice of 2013!

If there was someone I would hire to do one thing for me, it would be a launderer. Blerg.

Finishing up Nehemiah. She Reads Truth.

Tucker's teacher sent home of bag of clothes. The shorts were size 5. He's now wearing a size 7. All in the span of one school year.

Happy Friday y'all!

Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for flowers.
I'm thankful for nerdy boy clothes.
Colorful socks.
I'm thankful for coconut.
And watermelon.
I'm thankful for scented soap.
And jazz hands.
I'm thankful for tootsie roll pops.
Colored pens.
I'm thankful for notes.
And "thank you's".

What are you thankful for today?

What do YOU want to wear today?

Five years

Five years.
It's been five years since we unexpectedly lost you.
It's hard to believe how much time that really has been.
I remember so vividly getting the call letting us know that you were in the hospital.
Packing our bags.
Driving down.
Hearing the news that you were in fact very ill.
I remember getting the call while at the store to come NOW.
Standing around your bed.
And praying you into the Father's arms.
How we love you!
And miss you.
You will always be Jennifer.
And Nana.
In our hearts.

 Your name, O LORD, is everlasting, Your remembrance, O LORDthroughout all generations.
Psalm 135:13

Y'all, today I'm going to win mother of the year.
AND I'm going to be the boy's favorite parent for one fleeting day.
The Lego Store is coming to San Antonio and it's having a grand opening party this weekend, complete with a master builder.
We got postcards in the mail inviting us to come and help the master builder build an 8 foot R2D2.
So, being the rule breaker that I am (not) I am pulling the boys out of school early (eek!) and taking them to the opening early.
They don't know.
It's gonna be good y'all!
Now, on to our past week...

My sister-in-law introduced me to these life savers and they really are. I mean, G E N I U S.

Monthly co-op!

I did my nails while Stu was searching for a specific radio for his grandma. I kinda like it. :)

We spent over 3 hours organizing the Legos into same color boxes. It was a beast to do, but will make building so much easier.

This is my current favorite baby scent. And even though my boys are babies, I make them use it.

Yellow dog.

Apple trees. Of course.

I laugh and get scared every time I look outside. Who doesn't keep their bleached deer skulls in a basketball goal?

Tucker sent this picture to his sweet Hannah after soccer practice.

Then Tyson had to join in.

Last soccer practice!


I've been reciting this verse all day long for the past several days.

I love the crossed feet while he does homework.

Y'all, I left this mess out, overnight. It was a BIG deal for me.

Happy Friday!
