Going to the Zoo
VBS 2009

Week 3 on our house

B's tournament this weekend
He's OUT!!!

Hello friends. I know it's been a while. I'ts been a bit crazy around here. Let me fast forward.....the house being built, baseball tournaments (which by the way are over as of this weekend), C is off on her 2 week tour to Boston, Canada and New York, dog sitting for friends, and trying to be mommy and a wife. I know I've left out many things. I am worn out by the end of the day but, I have to keep going.

C gets home Thursday evening and we leave for SA Friday morning just in time to take our family vacation. Which in fact WE despartley need.

I wanted to post of few pics of what's going on in our neck of the woods.

I hope all of you are having a great summer.

C on New England Tour

Her group

The entire group

At the airport

Saturday morning we dropped C off at the airport for her 2 week New England tour with the SWCC. She was so excited to be going on this trip and I didn't relalize how much I was going to miss her. She finally called yesterday on Fathers Day. All I heard was excitment in her voice. Which in fact made it easy for me. They are in Boston right now. Yesterday they sang at the Old North Church. Tomorrow they are headed to Canada. They will be there for a few days then heading to NY. (that's where the fun begins) She so excited about the Broadway shows she will be going to - The Lion King, Mary Poppins and Billy Elliott.

Pray for C and the entire SWCC. They return home July 2nd.

Grilling Goodness

Grilling Goodness
1. What's the heaviest thing in your purse?
My wallet of course, it's full of pictures, c cards, check book and coins!
2. Do you mostly use cash or debit/credit cards?
both - most of the when I go some where I always try to have cash in hand.
3. Do you cut your hair shorter in the summer or pull it up a lot?
pull it back a lot epically in this Texas sun.
4. Do you like your man scruffy or clean shaven?
Scruffy because he's always so clean shaved I like him looking rough from time to time. I know weird.
5. What have your children done/said to embarrass you lately?
Our 2 yr old loved watching a cartoon called Calliou. In their theme song he says "I'm a big boy" so of course she thinks she's a boy too. I explained to her she's a girl like me and her big sissy. She doesn't get it! She told a lady at the store that she had a wee wee like her daddy and bubba. Even pulled her dress up and pointed to herself. I was so embarrassed!
6. Do you use plug-in type air fresheners around the house?
I sure do! I can't live without them. I also use them as a night light
7. Do you have any interest in the NBA or NHL finals? (Do you even know who's competing?)
Only if the Spurs are playing..
8. What is weighing heavily on your mind lately?
Our new house. The rain has stopped people, get started!

I'm participating in a year long challenge, created by Carin at Forever In Blue Jeans. The goal is to be in one picture a week, for 52 weeks. Since us moms are always behind the camera, this gives us a chance to get out in front and be in the pictures with our family. So, click here if you want to join in on the fun!

L and I at the AirHogs baseball game about a week ago. She was terrified of the mascot so she pretty much stayed on my lap throughout the entire game.

June 2009

Heading out to see the king of country music
my hubby
Cowboy Stadium

Hey guys, I know it's been forever. We have had so much going on since schools have let out last week. Choir performances, George Strait concert, baseball camp, house guests and getting our house. I haven't had much time to sit and relax...much less breathe.
I am very excited that we will FINALLY be closing today at 4 on our loan to start building our home. C had her last choir performance Sunday before she leaves on her 2 week tour to Boston, Canada and NY.
B started baseball camp in CH. He's having a blast!!
Saturday was the opening day of the new Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas. My hubby and I got to go to the George Strait concert. And let me tell ya. We had so much FUN! We also got to see Reba Mcentire, Blake Shelton and Leann Womack. They ROCKED the stadium!!!!
Here are a few pics I took this weekend.
