Well, my blog has been on a summer hiatus. Not intentionally, but out of sheer laziness....I have been busy eating Popsicles on the back porch with the boys, swimming at Memaws, going to the Bahn and the beach or enjoying a hot summer bar-b-que. Will report back with lots of pictures soon. I'll leave you with a pic straight from the sharks mouth. ;-)
P.S. I wanted to put out a prayer request for my dear friend, Melissa Niland. Her father passed away very suddenly yesterday. Please pray that she and her family find peace and comfort during this very difficult time.
"A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for."
Meet my newest nephew, Carter Wesley. He was born to my sister in law and brother in law, Melanie and Cody. He is now the youngest of their 3 boys!!! Isn't he adorable? He is already showing that he is an old soul, looks like he is contemplating the meaning of life in this pic. HA! Welcome Carter! We love you!
I'm in love with this Victoria's Secret dress! Perfect for summer and what girl wouldn't feel awesome in this?! The crochet detail and empire waist really seal the deal for me. So flowy and comfy, no need to worry about any of those unwanted bulges and lumps showing. This dress is the epitome of femininity!
Ok, this Nine West shoe is what my shoe dreams are made of! So sassy and some bling to it too! The heel is not so practical for a stay at home chasing 2 boys, but hell, I'll find a place to wear these beauties even if it kills me!
And look at this, they come in another pattern. So fun!
I love this hanging plate display. I just got a new bedding set with chocolate brown, blue and white in it. I think this will go great hanging over my bed with chocolate brown hanging ribbons. Don't ya think?! Here is my new bedding below....
Well, these are my current summer crushes. I haven't purchased any of them yet(except the bedding) because of their high prices, so it may just end up being an unrequited summer love. We'll see....=) x43z7dkvsb
Romeo and Juliet....Barbie and Ken...Fred and Wilma...Tim and Faith....Tom and Katie...Landon and Cali....
Cali, you told Landon that you were going to marry him about 3 years ago, when ya'll were two. Landon accepted and it has been a whirl wind preschool romance ever since.....
You two are quite mature for your ages being that you have already discussed topics such as children, pets and where you will live. I'm so happy to hear that I will be blessed with 4 grandchildren, I'm not so happy about you naming 2 of them Levi and Tex, but hopefully in 20 years you will change your minds. I also have been informed by Landon that he is going to buy his future wife 2 chihuahuas. And that they would like to live in a trailer behind either of their parents homes. But just recently Landon upgraded their housing status and said he would like to make a home for him and Cali in good, ole Rockwall Ranch....how sweet. haha! And if I remember correctly, Landon gave Cali her engagement ring out of a quarter machine on her 4th birthday at the bowling alley. Does my son know romance or what?!
It has been hilarious seeing these two precious kids plan for "wedded bliss". I would be all too lucky to get sweet Cali as my daughter in law....Cant wait to see what these two kids think of each other in high school!
SCCHHHOOOOOOOLLLLLS OUT FOR SUMMER!!!! I cannot get that song out of my mind! And I'm not even the one who is out of school.!!Landon had his last days of preschool last week. It makes me very emotional for many reasons, one being that my baby, my firstborn, will be in kindergarten. I just cant wrap my head around that. I'm not ready! Stop the clock, people! Another reason, is that Landon will be leaving behind all his preschool friends. He has become so home at his preschool, I wish I could take all his friends and stick them in Landon's elementary school. Not to mention, I have made great friends with the moms at the preschool, but thankfully, Luke will begin 2 year old preschool there, so I'll still see some of them. They celebrated their last day of school with "Splash Day" and I also have some pics from their "Annual Spring Fling", where they perform in the chapel and have a carnival afterwards. Lukey getting in on some Splash Day Popsicle fun.
Dylan and Berklee...some of Landon's buds
These are so cool right? They need these in adult sizes!

We just took our 2009 family pictures this last week. While taking pictures with two active and energetic boys is never easy, I'm always so thankful that I will have precious and hilarious moments like these captured forever....
If I could describe my life in one word, it's: BLESSED.
God and my wonderfully hardworking husband, Larry, blessed me with the opportunity to stay at home with my 2 adorable sons, Landon(5 years), and Luke (2 years). This blog will keep you up to date on all the "blessings" my job entails. From hugs and kisses, crayon on the walls, kissing boos boos, and tantrums in Wal-Mart, it never gets boring at Krippendorf's Krib.
