Summer is Almost Here....Yikes!

"I love Summer and sun all things hot"....without the heat, sweat or bored kids!  Hahaha!!  I'm determined to be on top of things this summer!  And I'm totally using Pinterest to help "us" make the best of this summer!!  Of course the kids are also going to camps, sleeping over at Grandparents houses and we are going to the beach...but for those days when we have nothing planned, and boredom is on the horizon, I will be pulling out these lists!!

Photo Dump...week of May 12th

Monday began with a new little girl in my house!!  Ashlee returned to work, and I started watching Camille (for the next few weeks)!!  She looks thrilled, right?!!

B couldn't wait to hold her when she got home!!  

Tuesday while at work, I discovered that I had lost TWO of the diamonds from my engagement ring. Boo!!  :(((  So now I'm sporting my wedding band by itself!

Tuesday night Aidan had his band concert!  It was well attended!!  We were super supportive, and only embarrassed him a few times!! 

I started nailing down ideas for B's upcoming birthday party!!!  It's Frozen themed...I LOVE OLAF!!  They need to make a movie all about Olaf.  For REALS!! 

Wednesday I had to take Owen for his fourth and final vaccine.  So we made a whole day of it!  Thank goodness both boys and Camille were great!  First we went to Taco Bueno...

Then the doctor's office....then ICE CREAM!!! 

OMGoodness....stop the cuteness!!!  

Friday night I went out with Haley again!  We have such a great time together...we went to Cheddars and then saw Mom's Night Out.  It was very cute.  I can totally relate to many of their problems!  ;)

Sunday evening B asked Jesus into her heart....what a PERFECT way to end the week (or start the week...however you look at it!!)!!!

Photo Dump...week of May 4th

I found this picture and texted it to my parents Sunday morning!  I love that my daddy was taking a selfie!!!  Bwahaha!!

Sunday afternoon I started working on my Summer mantle....it is finished now and I will show pics soon!

And Sunday afternoon my parents came over so my dad could fix our fence!  Joey and Dad worked all afternoon and it was a HARD job!  I'm so thankful to have two men who take care of this family when it is in need! 

That night after dinner we played Quiddler...if you don't know what the game is you are given a certain number of cards and you have to make words with them.  It is super fun....especially when you spell words like Poop, butt and urine!!  We are classy over here folks!!

Monday dad came back over to work on the fence....while he worked I worked....and listened to DTV music stations!  This is one of my favorite songs from one of my favorite movies!!

So...I HATE fractions...like abhor them!!!  I can remember my dad trying to teach them to me, and I would just shut down.  I couldn't comprehend them.  And I STILL hate them...so when I knocked over Joey's toolbox full of these doohickies, I was not thrilled to have to decipher fractions to put them back in their little spots!! Ugh!

 This week was the Mother's Day Tea at Grace Place!  I had such a good time sitting with Owen and listening to him laugh and explain all that he loved about me!  Ha!

Friday before school...

Friday morning Owen and I ran errands...and apparently he needed a nap!  We were listening to Norah Jones...and her voice is very smooth and can lull anyone to sleep!

Friday night Joey, Aidan and I ran to Thrift Town to find Aidan some clothes for an upcoming band event.  Ha!  60's wear...it is awesome!!  

Saturday I went and scoped out paint colors for the house....we decided not to buy a new and bigger house.:(  I was disappointed, but we know it's the right decision for our family.  We did decide to spruce up our house a bit, and one of our issues is painting the main living area.  Not that we hate the color we have, but it shows every fingerprint, I can't wipe it to clean it and we are out of touch up paint.  Someone {who will remain nameless} threw a toy at the toy box, it missed and took a huge chunk out of our wall.  So we REALLY need to paint that spot.  Anywho....I believe we are going to use #6.  

Sunday morning was Mothers Day!  I received some amazing gifts, but this one really touched my heart.  Finley made this IN SCHOOL, not Sunday School...REAL school!!  So amazing!  

After church we had lunch at my Grandma's house, then I had a photo session and then we went to my MIL's house!  It was a great BUSY day!!

From my MIL...and it was filled with CANDY!!

Another week down!  Whoop!

Photo Dump....having to skip a few days!

So apparently I didn't take any pics from about April 13th through April 27th!  Whaaaat?!!  I don't think that is correct, but that's what my computer is telling me....hmmm.  I hope it didn't somehow lose chunks of my VERY IMPORTANT life!  Hahaha!

So we will start with April 27th....I took pics of my friend Amanda and her beautiful baby bump...

Monday B and Owen had well-child appointments.  Poor Obug had to get 4 shots (which ended up being only 3, because they ran out of the CPox vaccine!).  He was a trooper and I was super proud of him!!

 I came across this and it spoke volumes to me....

Wednesday while stepping out of the shower this song came on Pandora....and I couldn't help but smile!!  And dance....smile and dance!!  I performed to this song in my elementary school talent show a FEW years ago! ;)  

Wednesday afternoon we picked this dude up from trombone practice.

B was anxiously waiting!!  

 This was about when we (Joey and I) decided we would start looking around at bigger houses.  We found one in our neighborhood that I liked A LOT!!!  

At some point Thursday Owen and I needed a nap BAD!! 

Thursday night my friend Haley and I went on a date!  We had SO.MUCH.FUN!!!  We ate at Chuys and then saw The Other Woman!  That movie was hilarious....so is Haley!!!  She kept me rolling!

Friday we had lunch with Ashlee.  Finn was "sick" and so he joined us!  

Friday afternoon we went over to Ashlee's to let the kids run wild!  Camille was being "Superbaby"!! 

 Saturday I had all the kids (except for Aidan who was at a band competition)...normally they spend Friday nights with my parents but this weekend they were in Canton!!  I was maybe a LITTLE bit jealous!  Ha!  But the three littles and I had a GREAT Saturday!!!  We went to Walmart and Lowes to pick up supplies for our flower bed!  
We traveled with our windows down...and this was happening in the back seat!!!!  Hahaha!!

They sure were proud of our flowers!!

We really did have fun doing all the work together!  They were so excited to see the finished product!  And I was thrilled that we were done by 12!!!  I expected it to take all day!  Yay for teamwork!!

We met Memaw for lunch afterwards!!  Overall it was the best family day I've had in a long time!!
