It's summer time to me!

I know, I know, It's like I've dropped of the face of the earth. But I'm happy to say I'm back!

Finally, This weekend feels like my summer has started! I have been working non-stop on the house. We have renovated almost the whole house in a 2 month time period. Don't get me wrong, we still have lots to do, but we have made a big dent in a short period of time! It's been crazy. We had a shower for my friend Courtney Mc. at my house Sat night, so that gave me a lot of incentive to get as much done as possible. I have literally been working every spare minute I have. You name it, I've attempted it. My birthday was yesterday and it was the 1st day that I just relaxed and did nothing at all to the house! Now, we will just slow down and do the rest when we feel like it! Today I even had a few hours to lay out and read. I haven't read a book since before Reese was born. I love a good book when I'm relaxing, and there has been none of that lately. I got some sun, read a book, and just enjoyed what feels like my first day of summer! (while the babies were napping of course). So here are a few pictures of the first few days of my summer vacation! Let the good times roll!

Babe's chicken fried steak, chicken tenders, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans & corn! Yum.

This is at Babe's Chicken. It's one of my favorite places to eat! It's the best home cooking. Thanks to my mom, I had to do the chicken dance in the lovely hat!

This is the closest I'll get to a pool this summer. This is our "water mountain" aka water fountain. Davis gave it that name. It's so peaceful when it's on, and the water trickling and the smell of chlorine really makes me feel like I'm at a resort. Or at least near a pool! Here's my set up from today. I got some good sun!

Here's the book I started today- Twilight. Everyone has been raving about it, so I finally decided to read it. I didn't see the movie, so I'm gonna see what all the fuss is about. I have read about 100 pages, and so far so good! I'll keep you posted on how it develops.

I'll post some before & after pics of the house soon!

We bought a new House!

Way too busy to blog! We are in the process of getting our new home ready to move into. Old house, but new to us! It's in the neighborhood I grew up in, so we are literally about a 30 second drive away from my parents. We closed Friday morning, and have been painting, ripping, tearing, & refinishing every surface in the house. It's going to be a long week with hard days & late nights until we move in for good. We are moving in on Sat! Hopefully then I can have time to share some pics & more news! Don't count on it though! I still be busy with unpacking! Say a prayer for us!

Reese @ 5 months!

Reese was 5 months old on Monday. She is doing great! She is sitting up better & better. She and Davis are starting to have more fun together. She sure loves to watch him! She is on a new 4 hour schedule & is doing great. We are going to start baby cereal this weekend. She's growing up so fast. We love our little Reesie!

Happy Birthday My Love!

You are my bug, my little love, my first born, and my precious baby boy. Two years ago today, God brought you into our lives. You will never know just how much you are loved by your mommy & daddy until you have a little one of you own. You are a true gift from God and I am so blessed to be your mommy. I love you Davis, my big 2 year old! Happy Birthday

Free Time

I have a few free minutes & I have so many things I need to be doing, besides being on the computer! I am very blessed to be able to stay at home with my little ones. I love being with them every day! At the same time, I've always dreamed about having a home business to sell things I love to make! I love to make blankets, design clothing or anything crafty. I had the opportunity to start a small business with a friend of mine. Carrie C. has started a website called It's adorable! She sales children's tutus, hairbows, and other accessories. I make , quilts, shirts & picture frames for the website. I love to do it, but lately I don't have a lot of time. I'm hoping I can figure out a schedule that will work for me, so I can make things weekly. I need more time than 10 min here & there. So I've just now used 10 min of free time to vent about how I wish I had more time! Here are a few of my creations.

Reese @ 4 months!

Here's another update. I can't believe it's been a month & I haven't blogged at all. Here is Reese @ 4 months (Feb 16). She weighs 14 lb, 4 oz. She is doing well, expect for an ear infection at the moment. She is all smiles most of the time & still loves to watch her big brother do anything. Davis tried to pick her up the other day. He got her about 6 inches off the ground and then decided he was done holding her, so he just dropped her on her back. She didn't like that at all & it scared me to death. I think it scared her more than anything. We are going to have to keep a close watch when he's around. He is starting to think he can handle her more & more! It's very sweet though. She is determined to sit up & tries all the time. She usually ends up on her stomach from pulling forward. She such a strong little girl!Here is Reese after trying to sit up. She usually ends up like this!

Reese @ 3 Months!

Here's our little angel update. Reese is 3 months old today. She's doing great. She weighs 12 lbs 1 oz. She is very strong and is starting to try and sit up. She's babbling up a storm! She's super happy & all smiles unless her tummy hurt :( Davis is starting to interact with her more, now that she notices him. He loves to try & tickle her!

Long time, No write

It's been too long! Almost a month. We had a great Holiday season. Christmas was a blast with Davis being older this year! He loved Ho Ho Ho, aka Santa. It was a great Christmas! Here are a few pics. Lately all I have time to do is post pics, so I hope you enjoy!

Big Wheel from Santa!

Cutest bow ever!

David, Davis, & I got boots from Santa! Reese is too little this year, but maybe next year he'll bring her some too!
