A Sunday outing!

We had a super fun Sunday outing to the Heard Museum! soooo pretty even with the trees missing their leaves!

The boys LOVED the dinosaurs mainly, after a few screams!

This place was awesome! I will be going to shoot here soon :)

Hendrix actually gave me a smile :)

There was a lot of "come on" bubba, it was so sweet to watch them walking around, totally realized how big they are getting :(

Big boys!

Trex! scary!

sweet moments!

Jax was a tad confused.. im not sure he knows what outside is!

Hendrix was taking pictures of me :)

Im so excited about how much we can do out here!

Boys in my House

There are boys in my house - and Spiderman shoes
And 200 papers in various blues.
There's Bob (he's a builder) and Thomas the Train,
There's a fireman coat to wear in the rain.
They have cars on their shirts and frogs on their hats
There's a glove and a ball and a red plastic bat.
There's dirt on a face and a smudge on a nose;
Grass stains on knees and sand between toes.
There's bathtime at night with bodies to scrub,
And when we're all done there is dirt in the tub!
There's bandaids and bruises and curious bumps,
There's smiles and laughter and sometimes there's grumps.
There's odors most icky; there's boogers so green
There's more yucky things than I'll ever get clean.
There's piles of laundry; there's stories at night;
There's bedtime and bathtime and dinnertime fights.
There's cars and there's trains and there's books about trucks
There's Scoop, Lofty, Dizzy, and Travis, and Muck.
Sometimes there are bugs, and sometimes there are frogs;
Sometimes they are lions, or dinos, or dogs.
There are cute little vests and darling neckties
Dragged right through the mud - oh what a surprise!
There's running and climbing and jumping and falling
And laughing and crying and hugging and brawling
And rolling and losing and finding and creeping
And whining and stealing and sometimes there's sleeping.
There's tantrums and time outs and extra loud noise -
There's love in my house shaped like two little boys.

My Babies!

I now have an almost 4 year old and a 1 year oldish.. Life is definitely easier than this time last year.. Jax was a challenge to say the least.. but hes such a snuggler and talker.. and so busy.. ALL THE TIME!

Hendrix had a fun year! He LOVES the country, loves the animals.. and for sure all the space!

He took up soccer which could have gone better, but it was fresh air.. he started a new school which Im pretty sure he loves, he just isnt so keen on going.. I see a pattern! above all they have both grown up so much, you can have conversations with Hendrix and he talks more sense than me half the time!

Im so proud of my boys.. and pretty proud of us for all we accomplished in 2010! These were the highs of course! The lows, well were pretty low, watching mimi start chemo, papaws surgery, Heres definitely hoping that 2011 is kinder to our families health!

Hello 2011.. its me the USELESS blogger!

Catch UP part ONE - the house!

So here we are in 2011 and I havent posted in probably ohhhh 6 months! This is ridiculous I was so good at it! Poor Jax its like we have nothing to say about him! :(

So heres a recap!
We bought our NEW home and built it.. may have been why I didnt have much time :( We bought it framed, we have AC, Electric, Plumbing put in, then it was sheetrocked in June. This was huge!!!

It was crazy to see it come together and look like a home! we were so excited and it all seemed worth all the work.. the living in 500 sq ft, the heat .. oh my god THE HEAT!

Next up was to get the inside put together and looking like ours!

Cabinets, appliances, Tile, wood floors! Looking back at these pictures I cant even imagine that we did as much as we did! (although there is still lots left!)

So here we are ALMOST a year later ,we are moved in, but still MUCH to do! more trim, lots of painting, some flooring and we havent even started on Kents man cave! We LOVE the space and adding another huge room is going to be nuts! one day we will need furniture!
