Here is Spencer climbing our pecan tree in the backyard. Caden will not be far behind him I am sure as he is already climbing onto the counter and standing there to get a glass for himself.

Boys will be boys.

Dime store cowboy

It was western day at Spencer's preschool today. I managed to find some stuff around the house to make him look kind of like a cowboy. The boots are hand-me-downs and are about 3 sizes too big, but he didn't mind. He is still wearing the get up and loves it.

Mardi Gras

We took the kids to Galveston for Mardi Gras today. We watched two parades, an animal parade and then the children's parade. I was hoping they would each get one bead necklace so they wouldn't feel bad......we ended up with over two hundred necklaces, bracelets and toys. They had a blast. Spencer got right into it jumping and yelling "beads please". Peyton would yell in her best exorcism voice "don't touch my beads!!!!" if anyone would dare to touch a necklace that she saw land. Didn't matter where it landed, it was HERS if she saw it. We had some awesome kids beside us that were helping mine gather beads, it was so nice of them and I hope my kids can be as nice when they get older!!!
After the parades we went on the Bolivar ferry in Galveston. The kids loved that too, we even saw a carnival cruise ship.
It was just a perfect day!

Family picture

Just wanted to share our family picture.


I didn't have to work today so I got to go and see Spencer play basketball at the YMCA.
He is just growing up too fast. He did really well shooting hoops. You really need to see him dribble to appreciate it, it's funny. He doesn't quite have the coordination to dribble and walk at the same time. This is his first time to play basketball and he seems to like it.

I'm so pretty!

Caden found my lipstick and decided to wear it......all over his face. I took him into the bathroom to wash it off and he saw himself in the mirror and lost it. He kept crying and telling me that he needed a bandaid. It was hilarious!!!!

To all my chilly northern na na na boo boo!!!!

Its was over 80 degrees warmer here yesterday than where my Sister Sharon is in Canada.
We were out riding big wheel tricycles in short sleeves and were comfortable. We went to the zoo too and had a ball, we were even HOT walking around. People always ask me how I stand the heat down here and my answer is............"I don't have to shovel the heat".
I had all the windows opened, it was gorgeous!!!
I am so glad we are getting some nice weather, I hate the cold. (even though our cold here is nothing to complain about)
I hope everyone stays warm and that summer comes to everyone soon!!!!
