Manic Monday....

Is it Monday already??? What happened? I think it totally skipped over us or something. We had the craziest weekend and I feel a bit jipped. Like that old song, "I wish it were a Sunday..." I woke up in a funk and just totally wasted an entire day. Well, I did manage to make my bed and vaccum the downstairs, oh and I did make all of us Dentist appointments today to. So I guess it wasn't a total waste. But I think I want a do over. Then this afternoon about 3:00 a thunderstorm blew in and brought us some marble size hail. That was kind of scary. I think it just sounded way worse than it was. I did manage to get some pictures though. Some of them were up to an inch in size. It was kind of neat. Just glad my car was in the garage. Ha! As soon as that ended we jumped in the car to go get the big kids from school and it was pretty dark and lightening like crazy but I had to go get them. As soon as I drove up and got in line, I saw everyone leaving their cars and running in the building. So I rolled down my window because there was a lady screaming and she was saying, "get in now!" So I yanked the boys out of the car and we ran in, siren's I guess were going off. So we hunkered down in a class room for a good thirty minutes and then it was gone and done. When we came out of the school it was just a beautiful as could be. Sun shining and all. Crazy! No tornadoes though. It gave the kids a pretty good scare though. They were none to happy when I finally got to them. But all is well and they went out to play in the mud this afternoon. So all is good. Supposed to be like that all week though. I guess it's just that time of year. Spring Showers! Well, I best run. Hope all is well with you all! Maybe next weekend will be better! I can't wait and it's just Monday! :)

Spring Break

We had our Spring Break last week and we, of course, went camping! It's our favorite family thing to do as you can tell. We all have so much fun. Anyways, my in-laws drove their trailer down as well and stayed with us too. We got to get one of my nephews for the week too. That was nice to get to see him. We just went to a state park close by here but we had fun. It was a beautiful place. Mostly we just relaxed and played. One day it stormed all day and so we were stuck in the trailer all day, which makes for a very long day! As you can only imagine. Landon has finally adjusted and enjoyed himself much better this time. He had a couple of falls from exploring but nothing too bad. We hadn't been at the camp site thirty minutes until Allen didn't shut the door to the trailer and Landon went tumbling out the door, onto the concrete and had a big nice scrap and knot across his forehead. But he survived it all. It's always nice just to get away and chill! I'm wishing I was there again right now! Hope you all had a great spring break too....

"Let's Play Ball..."

The boys had there very first T-ball game today. Are they the cutest things or what? That was so much fun. I really enjoyed seeing them play. They are all so darn cute. They had so much fun too... I want you to look at the smile on Allen's face as he comes home for a run. I think that says it all! They had two games today. They won the first and tied the second one. They are on the Redsox team. I know there will be many more posts and pictures on this. Enjoy!

Hellooo There....

Good Morning... Hope this finds you all well. We're all good here. It's been a busy busy weekend and week so far. Lauren had her last cheer leading game on Saturday and then she had awards on Sunday. I was kind of sad to see that end but I'm sure she'll do that again. She really enjoyed that. Then Hailey and the boys had ball practices all weekend too. The boys started T-ball and Hailey started girls fast pitch softball. So that is keeping us really busy with three practices each every week. Plus all the other junk. This week Bryan has a play tonight that he's in and then they have Open House on Thursday and all their practices. Such is life huh? I'm loving watching the boys play. They have never played before and so they don't have any clue what they are doing but of course they think they are the experts at it. They first time Allen hit the ball and the coach told him to run to first base, he just took off after that ball chasing it like he was going to get it. We had to laugh. Then when Bryan hit it, he had to stop by the dug out and take his helmet off and lay it nicely on the bench and also lay his bat down nicely too. Ya know nothing needs to be out of order. he he he.... We defiantly will have to get this on film for ya. It's just too funny. Well for the most part. Like Allen screaming, from the field and holding himself I might add, "mom, I need to go pee!" Oh how I'll cherish that moment. And Bryan bent over drawing a pictures in the dirt as if he had nothing better to do. It is fun though. Saturday Hailey gets in the car after practice and informs me that dad can't come anymore, because all he does is scream, "Hailey do something and move!" Bless her heart she gets it honestly. She tends to be like her momma and she just doesn't have much getup and go in her. But the coach did however like the way she pitches so we might have a little pitcher on our hands. Well see. I'm excited to see them all play. Landon is doing good too. He's growing like a little weed. He's so darn sweet. We have Spring Break next week and will be gone camping for the whole week. We are so excited. William's parents are bringing their trailer and his sister is driving down from Las Veges and then we are picking up our other nephew for a few days. So it will be alot of fun. We haven't seen my sister-in-law and nephews in a long time. We're getting anxious for this week to be over already. Well, I guess that's about it. Hope you all have a great week.

Crazy Weather

Is this the craziest weather or what? I don't know about you guys but it has been just insane weather the last month or so. For instance, this week has been like this. Sunday it was in the low 80's, then by Monday night we were getting a light dusting of snow. Which is rarely seen here in Texas, so as you can imagine we could hardly sleep, hoping to wake up to at least enough for a snow ball. But no such luck. It was melted by then. Tuesday warmed up to 60 then yesterday it was beautiful and in the low 70's. As for today, I woke up to a cold dreary day with the call for rain and thunderstorms turning into yet another snow for tonight. Maybe we'll get a snow ball yet! But have no fear it will be back into the 70's by the weekend. Is that crazy or what? One day we have shorts on and the next we have coats. Insane! No wonder none of us can get well. (not that anyone here is sick, YET) Anyways! I thought I might join in the blogging ranks yesterday with my Wordless Wednesday pictures. Did you notice there were no words? he he he he.... Those were from our camping trip a few weeks back. I just loved the little creek that ran behind our camp site. I enjoyed sitting by it and just listening to the ripple of the streaming waters. It allowed me to relas just a bit. Well, I best run. Have to get Allen off the preschool. Woo Hoo... Hope you all have a great day! Talk to ya later!
