Take me out to the ballgame!!!

I have many memories of ballgames. I never played (other than the backyard), but I have gone to many games and listened to even more games on the radio.If there was a Braves game on while I was growing up we were listening to the game. I LOVE the sound of the ball hitting the bat, the smell of the field, and the feeling you get when you sit and watch a game. I was so happy to get to take my little ones to their very first game and hopefully we will get to go to many more. Captain Drools talked about wearing his Braves shirt all day. He brought it to me about 10 times that day before it was finally time for him to get to wear it. Miss Boss was excited too! Here they are all ready to go to the game.

Mimi and Pappy joined us (of course). Miss Boss and Captain Drools are looking all around and taking everything in.
We got there early enough to catch batting practice.
At Turner Field there is a place to run a base. Captain Drools had to do this A LOT! We actually had to leave the game for a little while to head back to the base and run.

I love this sweet picture of my 3 most favorite people.
At one point during the game Captain Drools noticed some pretty girls sitting behind us and he decided to start dancing for them.
Here is Miss Boss clapping for the last out of the game.....Braves Win!!!

Another Year Down

It might be kind of strange that I said another year, but at our house we count the year from August-May. Since me and the hubby are both teachers. It has been a fantastic school year. Miss Boss has graduated and she is going on to kindergarten next year and I am in total shock. I have had her with me for the last 2 years. I have been able to walk to her classroom and peek in and now I am not going to be able to do that anymore. She was 6 months old when I started working there too. I LOVE the way our school does preschool graduation. They all make a shirt with everyone in their classes handprint on them. They say a little Bible verse and a prayer. Then they sing 4 of the sweetest little songs.

Here she is on the stage getting ready to sing. She had the SWEETEST teacher this year. Miss Boss is getting her diploma. Two days after graduation we had her dance recital. She is just too beautiful. Her eyelashes are killer and make me soooooo jealous. She is going to LOVE those one day.
She is already a beautiful dancer and she takes it serious just like she takes everything else she tries to do. She is my little perfectionist.

A typical Sunday at Mama and Daddy's

While I was growing up I looked forward to EVERY Sunday. We would go to my grandparents (Mimi and Papa) and eat Sunday lunch with the whole family. We would spend the day eating and playing with all of our cousins. It is one of my favorite memories from childhood. I am also so very happy that it is a tradition I have passed along to my kids. Almost every Sunday we go to my parents to eat after church and hang out with the family. Here are some pictures of a typical Sunday.....

Playing the cousins in the yard.

Hanging out in the back of Pappy's truck.

Being silly with Daddy.

Playing on the slide.

Playing ball in the yard.

Everyone likes to sit around a chit-chat.

Swinging with Uncle Dave.

Stopping for a quick second to look at the camera.

Fishing with Uncle Luke.

This happens to be one of there favorite parts.

This Sunday the fish were not biting. :(

Sunday's happen to still be one of my favorite days. I thank God daily for the wonderful family I have. Not only are they my family, but they happen to be my dearest friends. I feel so very blessed!!!!

After an extremely long hiatus......We are back to the blogging world.

It is almost--almost embarrassing that I have not blogged in almost a year. I can't say that there really is a reason for it. I guess that life is busy with 2 little ones and I just had to let something fall to the wayside and blogging was just that. Hopefully, and I know I have said this before, but I would like to start updating my blog more than once a year (we will see). I know it will be impossible for me to update the year so we are going to just start where we are.....Spring Break. Last week was Spring Break and I have been under the weather so Daddy was pretty much in charge all week. To spare you the details I had my gallbladder removed and a hernia repair done the Friday before we were out of school. I spent my first weekend of Spring Break pretty much drugged up. The kids survived and I am sure had fun with Mimi and Pappy and Daddy. We had to spend the beginning of our week very low key. Towards Thursday we were ready to get out of the house. We decided to take the kids bowling (their first time) and the go to Hopdonalds (what Captain Drools calls McDonalds). It was a fun outing. On Friday, we went to the park. The rest of the weekend we spent in the backyard. One of my favorite things about or tiny house is our huge backyard. For the kids birthday this year (3 and 5....too old I know) the grandparents bought them a swingset. It took 2 days for daddy and pappy to put it together, but I must say it was the best money EVER spent. We are always in the backyard having fun now. Here is my lovely backyard. Here is the part of the yard with the swingset. We really have loved it. I just wish we had gotten one sooner. We spent everyday of our Spring Break enjoying lunch outside. We also spent lots of time blowing bubbles which is one of their favorite things to do.

On Saturday, the weather got into the 80's so we thought that it was time to break out the sprinker. Miss Boss LOVED running through the water and getting wet.

Captain Drools not so much. This is as close as he would get to the sprinkler, but he enjoyed watching his sister play.

Here is a picture of my girl enjoying the swingset and making a silly face for the camera.

His sweet little smile happens to be one of my most favorite things to look at!!!!

I am not ready to go back to work. I was so very blessed to get to spend the week with my beautiful family, but I only have 6 more weeks and we get to do all of this everyday!!! :)

The lazy days of Summer

We have been pretty lazy here at this house. I certainly do enjoy it though. This summer we have been a little busier than we normally are. We went to the beach and Jt and I chaperoned youth camp with our church. That was such a fun week. Here are some pictures from our summer.

Captain Drools loves to climb into the dryer and bang on the sides.

Miss Boss had a dance recital this summer. She LOVES to take dance. It is one of her favorite things to do. Isn't she beautiful?

Here we are spending the day at the park.

The fourth of July is my most favorite holiday. We went to the parade on Saturday, cookout and swam. Then on Sunday we went to see the fireworks.

We were very lucky to spend a week at the beach. Captain Drools did not like the beach and he really doesn't care too much for the pool either. He told me all week "I wanna pay (play) cars". I spent a lot of the week inside.
We loved being beachfront. We ate our meals outside. Miss Boss and I also set out there for hours telling stories. It was my most favorite part of our vacation.
My pretty lady on the beach.
Walking to spend the evening at the beach.

I love this boy. He just makes my little heart melt!!!

So much going on....

In the last several months we have been very busy. The kids have both had birthdays, we have had spring break, we have celebrated Easter, and Miss Boss finished her first year of preschool. We have also survived another soccer season. The kids have kept me busy and I have loved every minute of it. I am happy to say that hubby and I are both out of work for a couple of months :). Here are some pictures from the last couple of months. Well, I guess long then a couple of months since it has been quite sometime since I have blogged.

This is my favorite picture of the 2 of them. Captain Drools just got angry and tried to punch Miss Boss. As you can see she is angry.
