Lazy Saturday

I thoroughly enjoy my lazy Saturday mornings.  I know they will not last much longer because of soccer, but I love to just lay around with my boys.  Moments like these will not last forever.

Soccer Mom

Well I am officially a soccer mom, Jacob started soccer practice this past Monday.  At first he was a little hesitant to wear all his gear but when it came time to get out there and actually meet his team he put it on. 

We had a good first practice (with a brief meltdown, HA).  His coach is one of the little boy’s dads and has all my respect!  He has a great deal of patience to coach six 3 year olds.  Jacob loved listening to him and chasing him around.

Jacob is really good at kicking the ball (just like his Daddy) but still thinks he can pick it up whenever.  Hopefully by the end of this season he will know that you do not touch the ball with your hands in soccer.  Here are a few pictures from his first practice.


The kids named their team the Trussville Tigers. I am not real sure why they chose that, but that will be the only Tigers I will ever cheer for, HA.  And not to leave the little man out, here is Colyn hanging out at Jacob’s practice.


There first game is in a couple weeks and I am sure it will be pretty funny watching a bunch of three year olds play a soccer game.

Little Crawler

Wednesday night I was in the kitchen fixing dinner and put Colyn in the floor to play.  Jarred started hollering for me to come see where Colyn had crawled off to, the little bugger and gotten in his car seat and was playing with the buckle.

I guess it is time to put the baby gates back up.  He is getting quick!  Here are a few more pictures of my little men.


Happy Friday!

1st Annual GNO Beach Trip

Let me just say, I had the most fun and laughed more than I think I ever have this past weekend.  Our girl’s beach trip was so much fun and we are already planning for next year. 

I had so much fun and am so thankful to have friends like you in my life.  We rant, talk about our children and husbands, pick on each other, have heart to hearts, make up questionable phrases and laugh nonstop.  You girls are the true meaning of friendship.  Thank you for an awesome time!

Bloggy Beach Break


I currently have my toes in the sand chatting it up with the best friends a girl could possibly have and plan to stay that way through the weekend.  I will be back next week.

10 Years

Reunion10 018

My 10 year high school reunion was this past weekend.  It was stressful (at times) preparing everything but I think April and I pulled it off.  We had a blast!  And might I mention we had a pretty awesome turnout.  We did not really know what to expect and I for one was so nervous to see how everyone reacted to the whole event.  All in all I think everyone had a great time.

The family picnic was yesterday and it was WAY too hot to be outside but we had a good time anyway.  All of the kids played really hard, so I am pretty sure they all slept good last night.

Thanks to all that helped us pull this reunion off and to everyone who was able to make it out this weekend.  We sure did miss our classmates that were not there.  Only 10 more years until the next one, I need a break!
