Spring is Here!

Our azaleas are blooming, the weather is beautiful and bubbles are bountiful! Some pictures from this afternoon.

Joel's favorite product by far. I am glad its $1 and lasts a long time. We use quite a few bubbles!

Not only does my little perfect gentleman serenade me with Sally the Camel has 3 humps...he gives me flowers several times a day. Dandelions and other blooming weeds have no chance of living in my yard...not because I am a good gardener, but because I have the sweetest little boy ever.


Some of my azaleas. I LOVE these flowers. They are so beautiful!

Joel, the chick magnet!

Joel has been blessed. Barry and I have plenty of friends with kids right at his age, so when we get together with our friends there is usually a kid to play with that is close to his age. He is doubly lucky, because they are all beautiful girls with wonderful parents. He just needs to be nice for the next 20 years and marry one of them :)

Joel took Harley on a ride in his truck. And even more impressive, he even let her drive for a little while!

Happy Easter!

I hope everyone had a great Easter. We had a wonderful weekend! Here are some of the pics.

Saturday - We went to the Biedenharn Gardens to see the Easter bunny. We had a great time!

In a huge tree in Forsythe Park.

A fave!

Joel said the tulips smelled like Mashed Potatoes - I

My - what big puppy dog eyes you have!


Sunday - We went to church and there was a big easter egg hunt after church. It was so fun! When we got home we hid eggs at home. We had almost 150 eggs at home (recycled from Church and school and some new ones) Our backyard was COVERED with eggs! Joel was so tired, he didn't finish picking them up, but he did have a blast with his baseball bat and bubbles!

Eggs a plenty. The whole yard was covered!

A cool Elmo egg!

Checking out the loot in an egg

BUBBLE horn! He loves it!

Stirring bubbles

Playing baseball! He actually hit the ball the first several times I threw it to him.

Sr cutie

Crazy Weather

Last Friday it snowed. There was just a little snow, but it was snow. Yesterday (a week later) the high was 81!
Lastnight we had hail the size of marbles. Joel slept thru it, Rufus came and got in the bed with us.
Rufus hates bad weather.

Have crayons, will travel!

This week we went to two of Charlie's ball games. He did well. Joel gets pretty antsy, because he wants to play to entertain him we gave him a few colors.
Check out where they ended up!

Chloe', Our sweet girl

If you haven't heard, we lost Chloe' on Wednesday.
She had been sick during the night. We got her to the doctor, they did all they could do, but she passed away around 9. It was a really hard day. She was more than a pet, but a wonderful animal and a part of our family. She will be missed. The pic from Friday (the post below) was the last picture I took of her.

Chloe' is really sick and is in the hospital. Here is a pic of her from Friday. I hope she gets well soon.

Charlie playing ball @ ULM

Charlie's team was in the playoffs this week at ULM. His team won by a 10+ point margin tonight and they will be in the playoffs again tomorrow.



Open for the pass

& of course we can't have a post without the cutest 3 yr old in the whole entire world...


What a beard!

Circus Fun

The Shriner's circus was in town. We had a great time! Mom, Barry, Cassandra, Lillie, Joel and I went. Everyone enjoyed it. Some of the tricks were amazing! Joel rode the pony. He was terrified of the elephant.

How much is the premuim for this guy's life insurance?

An exciting week!

Last week was very exciting. We went to the Circus, had "snow" and had a fun time! I am behind in posting pics, so I'll stick a few up tonight.

This is Friday. You can see the "snow" falling in the background. I think he was pouting because I told him we had to go inside to potty, but he is precious anyway!

Outside - as soon as the "snow" touched you it melted - Joel's few shiny spots on the shoulders were the remnants of snow.

There was some "snow" in my hair (if you have a magnifying glass you can see it) - man I need a tan.

Cassandra & Lillie - They came over while we waited to go to the Circus!

More fun stuff!

After we rested from the park and the mall, we drove the truck around the yard. Here are pics..

Kiroli Park!

Joel and I met some friends at Krioli and had a great time today.
Here are some of the best shots...
