That's our motto

This weekend was long, and hot, and jam packed.. In all the right ways too..

With a forcast of all rain, all weekend, it was pretty ambitious to have Keiths family visit, and to throw a cookout. But God had something else in mind. He blessed us with blue skies, hot days, cool nights and fun times.. Thank you Lord.

They arrived on Friday night, after the daycare party, and stayed until early this morning.

We got up every morning, had a good breakfast( thanks to my hubby), did fun things ALL day, stayed up late playing games at night, and doing it all over for three days straight. Austin had a blast, and was quite the little tropper for us.

I had such a good weekend, and hope for many more with nice nights, and family days!

thank you guys so much!!

Memorial Day/ Teddy Bear Party

For daycare our party was themed "Teddy Bears" because President Theodore R. was the namesake of the teddy bear.. Now, this is a cool fact, if your me. But if you are a bunch of toddlers, not so much. They just had fun wearing their decorations, doing their crafts and eating their goodies..

But,hey, we're making memories here..

our VERY cool centerpeice

LOVED getting our pictures taken

It was such a blast, and quite the accomplishment to keep toddlers entertained that long..

Bear with me, in my lack of posts, I am cramming for my insuranse exam hoping againest hope I can pass, so June 7th, make sure to pray for me!! :)


May was a month, of mostly rain! Some sun here and there, however the general forcast was RAIN!!!

So, after 10 days of nothing but crop-growing-wet-stuff, We had sun, and 80 degree temps. and my girlfriend and I, did not hesitate to take advantage of it.

So, we packed up our kids and headed to the beach. Where we not only found a deserted beach and playground just for the taking, but we also found a texas-size black flys nest*

* dont worry you out-of staters, your not missing anything with black flies

we got eaten up, and had to leave after about an hour.
BUT! We had a lot of fun!!

Austin's favorite thing at the playground
as Jordyn would say: the swing!

After the beach I thought it would be fun to get pulled over, so I got that over with and then went to Nana's to play with "eddie" ( mckenzie) and " ee-um" ( Liam) ..

Yesturday we spent alll day at Meme's house.

We were throwing Nany a surprise party...

little vaca

We took a little trip last weekend down to NJ to get a truck part, just so happens all of Keith's siblings live in the area. And I really think it's so great when they can all get together, and laugh, and catch up and really just have a good time.
Seeing them all together, albeit how different they are from one another, is so touching.

Kevin & Keith
Keith's BIGGER little brother

They really could pass for twins, ( mixus the 7 inch difference)

Kevin, Katie, Ashley, and Keith

Kids and Mother
It was nice to have a little break. I know, I took one from blogging too.

I have been swamped with interveiws, its such a blessing.

Everything is good on the home front, and hopefullt it will be getting better. and soon!!

Mothers Day Weekend

This past weekend Keith and gramp found these cute little guys.

puppy Foxes

cute little pups
They are cute. BUT. only from afar. Its nerve racking with a little, and a friendly doggie around, being around a protective mother fox, but they are far enough away that Austin doesnt go up by himself, and neither does the dog.

They are cute to look at, and we didnt even point them out to Austin at all, just in pictures.. Didnt want him running up to them. ( I doubt he would)

But, while this was going on, I was feeling productive cleaning our carpets, and Keith helped Rus sheet rock. Keith has gone almost 4 weeks now without any ciggs. Which just means all he does is eat, and move.move.move..
Dont ge tme wrong I love it.. ( not in a gross way..winkwink)
We have gotten so much done.

I even made THREE rhubarb banana cobblers..

Then, we were going to go to the petting zoo in town, but it was really looking sort of thunder-y and storm-y
So we did this instead..

And you wanna talk about a proud daddy?
Just watch him teach his son to fish, and watch hi ACTUALLY do it..

So amazing to see.

Our son is growing so fast, and getting so much smarter and indendent as each day passes.

I have had some promising job stuff. And have really gained ALOT of ground on our book ( hope to be 'published' by Christmas)

Not to mention, I LOVE, and Austin LOVES going to nana's and Papa's almost each day, playing with Kids and doing lots of work..
