Weekend Rewind...and a TOOTH!

Saturday I had a great time shopping with some girlfriends! I ended up making out fairly well, found shorts, a black belt and a new pair of TOMS!  Nathan and the kids ended up going to Mema's and playing on her water slide.  I was home in time to give Amelia a bath and put her to bed, it was a great day!

Sunday morning Asher woke up and his bottom right tooth had FINALLY broken through.  Poor little dude has been teething super hard the past two weeks and I'm so glad it broke through, that left one is oh so close.  I'm expecting it any day.  He's a little stinker and I haven't been able to get the 'first tooth' picture yet, but I'll keep working at it and post ASAP. 

Sunday we did a little running and attended a graduation party for Nathan's cousin. It was a pretty low key afternoon, which is great because next weekend looks like a crazy busy one!

Here's the video that I was talking about a few weeks ago.  Amelia was taking her bath and Asher crawled into the bathroom to get in on some of the action!  I love this so much, turn your volume up and enjoy!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Random Ramblings

Me and some of the girls are going shopping Saturday in Rogers, AR.  I'm so ready to go, but I always end up with this huge amount of guilt because I'm leaving the kids with Nathan all day.  What's wrong with me?  Anyways, I'm looking for shorts, a new wallet, and maybe some new Toms.  :)

Asher's bottom teeth are oh so close to breaking through.  I'm ready for them to be here, and I'm sure he is too.

I'm just about to finish my rule growth chart from pinterest, I'm not telling you when I started this project.

I still want a bigger house, wonder if this will ever pass? And a fenced in backyard, this would make life easier.

We do not have a free weekend until the very last week of June. Ugh.

I'm now on the 5th book of my Harry Potter reread.

I'm dieing to take a family vacation, I'm just not sure if Asher is still a little to young.  I'm thinking next year for sure, but I'm not 100% about this year.

Couponing for me is a thing of the past, I just can't find time to cut the stinking things.  It was so beneficial for us financial, and I know I really need to get back into it.

Is it strange that I'm excited that we're having homemade pizza for dinner tonight?

Mediterranean or Hawaii?

Can't you see the love?

Huge milestone...for Amelia!

Mother's Day weekend consisted of a lot running, some down time, a 24 hour bug, and a huge milestone for Amelia, her first haircut!!

Friday night I went to bed not feeling well, but just attributed it to eating dinner too late and nothing else. Well when Asher woke up to eat at 2:30ish, I still felt pretty awful but again didn't think anything about it. As long as I was in bed not moving I was good. Thankfully it was Nathan's 'night' so I did a quick diaper change and headed back to bed.  Amelia got up around 5:30 (she's started doing this lately :o/) and I had to have Nathan take care of her as well because I knew I was going to throw up.  I'm not sure what happened, but I guess I ended up with a 24 hour bug, Saturday was pretty awful and I was completely useless around the house.  Nathan did everything, and I really laid on the couch almost ALL day.  But I woke up feeling much better Sunday, so that's a good thing!

Saturday morning I had schedule Amelia an appointment with Jill McDonald to get her first hair cut!  We talked it up big and explained the whole process to her, even did the pretend cape and the pretend cutting thing so she knew what was coming.  Amelia was SO excited and did wonderfully the whole time.  She sat in the chair just like a big girl and watched Jill cut her hair.  She's growing up so fast, it hurts!

Since I didn't feel well we did NOTHING else Saturday it was a complete waste on a beautiful day, I felt horrible.  Nathan and the kids did go outside for some playtime, but other than that nothing special.

Sunday was GO GO GO, between church and trying to fit all the mom's in it was a FULL day.

I'm so incredible blessed to the mom of two beautiful perfect children.  I'm so thankful that God chose me to be their earthly momma and take care of them.  Sunday afternoon when I was putting Amelia down for her nap I told her I was so glad I was her mommy, and she replied with, "because it's SO fun".  I love that girl with my whole heart.  :)

Enjoy some pictures from the weekend!
Dont' judge, it was daddy's popsicle, Asher wanted it, BAD.
In the act of 'cruising'...oh my.

Fun In the Sun

The weather has been crazy lately, this weekend we had July/August like temps so we made a trip to Target (seriously who doesn't just love Target) to grab a water slide for Amelia. She's been asking for one since we got a advertisement flier in the mail that had a water slide in it and we keep putting her off telling her it wasn't warm enough yet. Well it was for sure warm enough this week so we caved in and bought one. It's seriously perfect for her and we'll be able to get a few years worth of use out of it. She had a blast playing Saturday afternoon. Asher got to splash and play in a $3 blow up pool and had a great time as well, even though he really wanted a shot at the big slide!

First time down.

She loved it!

Waiting for the slide to get blown up.


Bubba liked it too.

He wanted to go down with sissy!

Tea Time

Amelia and Asher had a tea party the other morning on my day off of work.  I seriously love watching them play together.  They love each other so much, it's really such a blessing.  Amelia does have 'issues' with Asher playing with her stuff and promptly takes it away, but we're working on that!  After all she's only two and a half, what can I expect?  Don't look too closely or in the bottom picture you'll see that Amelia has moved everything just out of Asher's reach and he's actually chewing on his hands.  :)
