I finally taught myself how to french braid. Emma's hair is now pretty long and I love playing with it & doing new things with it. She does not like it as much as I do. You can look on my side bar and go to the 2 hair sites I have linked and learn how to do this yourself.

Happy Fathers Day

I just want to do a VERY LATE (don't judge me) Father's Day post to my husband. He is such a great father and husband. I am so grateful for his patience with our children and me. He works very hard to make us all happy. What I love best is when he comes home from work tired and the kids miss him & want to play with him & he still makes time for them. I also love when he takes one child to the store etc. to give me a break. We love u daddy!

Happy Belated Fathers Day

Second, Happy Fathers Day to my father in law. He is such a loving example. I feel blessed to have him in our lives.

Last of all Happy Father's day to our sweet dad. Sometimes I take this wonderful Dad for granted. He works so hard, in so many ways to make us all happy. I am truly grateful for the great example he is to me.

Spencer Time Out

Yes my son is 19 months old and yes we have started putting him in time out when he does things that he is not supposed to. I just thought he looked so darn cute sticking his nose in the corner. It is actually kinda funny, he will go to the corner when I tell him to. I am not sure how long that will last, probably not too long. SHOUT OUT TO THE SUNNYVALE FIRE DEPT. Uncle David got that for the kids last year. It is still really big on Spencer he wears it to bed.

More pics from BR. The first is a view of Baton Rouge, second is the famous fountains downtown and here is a picture of Spencer's head. He had 5 staples on Thursday night the day before we left for the Baton Rouge trip. It was really scary for me because I am the one that dropped him outside, but we were blessed and he is ok. Needless to say we thought we should take him with us. He gets them removed on Father's Day.

Also I wanted to say we missed Emma so much. She had so much fun with Grandma & Aunt Kelly, Kristen & Nevaeh. They went bike riding, park with sand box, play ground, Aquarium, etc. She had so much fun. Thanks so much to my awesome Mom & sister who are always willing to watch my child. It was awesome when we picked up Emma she ran to me & said, "mommy (with so much love & excitment in her voice) We had truly missed her and were so glad to get our big hugs. She grew up so much in 3 days.

More on the BR trip

Well the pictures below are just a few that Steve took during our stay in Baton Rouge. He had fun with his camera.

Spencer screamed on the entire plane ride to Baton Rouge and was great on the way back. He did pretty well over all. He loved getting all the attention for once from both of his parents.

Both weddings, Brent & Robin and Fern & Candace, were awesome. We had so much fun seeing everyone from Baton Rouge. It was a great opportunity to visit with friends.

At Fern & Candace's wedding I almost cried it was so neat to see them two finally enter into the sweet covenant of marriage. We are so happy for them.

Other side noted from our trip: I left my book, "the bean trees" by Barbara Kingsolver, on the plane.....oh man....was my exact wording when I realized I left it.

Also we ate at a few yummy places while we were there, Raising Canes and Steve got his crawfish fix at Sammy's.

We got to see Indiana Jones. It was awesome & I actually got to see it all while at the same time entertaining Spencer. It was a really good movie. Lots of action!

Also we walked around LSU, took lots of pictures, saw our old house & our first apartment.

We also got a free upgrade on the rental car, so we got an SUV, fun!

We are still recovering from the early mornings. When I say early we had to get up at 3:30am to make our flights.

Glad to be home in Texas. We both decided we are glad we are here. We love our home!

Warning: You may only read this post if you will make an oath not to JUDGE me.

Ok I warned you:
This is just what I wanted to do to so many people today.

It began at 7am at the Honda dealership getting our car fixed. (by the way we did not leave until 10:15) The shuttle guy came & asked if any one wanted a ride. I knew we would at least be there for 2 hours or more so I said yes we want to go to the mall. He proceeded, in a nasty tone, to discourage me from going. I just said "never mind, it sounds like you don't want to take us."

The next person I wanted to "stick my tounge out" to was the lady that came up to me and said, "you know they have a playroom for the kids to go to. HAHAHA you don't think I know that. But instead of sticking out my tounge, I just told her that we had already been in there for an hour and the kids were bored of it.

The next person I wanted to "stick my tounge out" to was the woman at the pool that keep pulling her kids away from Emma because she was splashing. She also kept giving her dirty looks. I am so sorry but you are in a pool and you will get wet. I eventually just had to leave because it was soooooo annoying and Emma would not stop slashing. Imagine that.

PS. Maybe we should just stay home.
