Yippee! We made it to Friday!
The boy's only have 28 more days of school.
time to plan 11 weeks of care and activities to keep 'em busy!!
adam and i had some yummy peaches and cottage cheese for a snack
adam called it old school dessert :)

my cowboy's and their stick horses, rowdy and roxy

last week's 1st grade program
Marisol, Corbin, and Cooper hiding behind his horse
still can't believe i got a front row seat
we separated the boy's bedrooms this week
it's probably a little over due
but good
really great in fact
and today is 80's dress up day
i think we pulled it off
i was going for let's get physical meets karate kid :)
i told them how exercise became popular in the 80's
and everyone wore sweatbands, knee highs, rolled up their sleeves and exercised
(at least that's how i remember it)
and we didn't have to go out and buy anything for this dress up
happy weekending to ALL!

blackberries are growing

John 15:5 " I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit, because apart from me you can do nothing."
look at all the intricate parts that make up a blackberry
thank you lord for such an amazing creation!

 saturday me and the boys flew kites they got for easter
at lake kyle. we brought along some old bread to feed the ducks too.

love this field of bluebonnets i found on the back roads from our house
it's someone's pasture
so i just took pics from the fence
i didn't dare try to plop my kiddos down in the middle of them like i did when they were little
like we need to be reminded to EAT
but i love the red color in my kitchen
friday night adam surprised me with an impromptu night out
just the two of us
he even arranged the babysitter
an overnight babysitter :)
i have the best husband
boy's are studying texas history this last 10 weeks of school
next week they are to dress like cowboys all day
then they are having a program complete with texas songs and stick horses
this boy was super happy with his new pearl snap shirt and cowboy boots
he was NOT a fan of the cheap little hat i bought
he said he wants a REAL cowboy hat
today they took this book to school to share with their class
the story of the magnificent SAM Houston!
Uncle happens to know the author and illustrator and sent the boy's a signed copy :)
way cool!
great story
thanks Uncle ;)
ronnie in his standing machine
Lord we need a miracle!
and thank you for all your provided thus far
this is pretty amazing

gosh they are getting so tall

garden update

potatoes and onions are growing strong 

the rains we've had this spring are amazing for garden growth
this all just shot up in 4 weeks or so

and the blackberry bush is full of beautiful blooms

Look at the garlic!
it's going to be fun when all these veggies are ready for harvest

we also have a few tomato, strawberry, basil and tomatillo plants

speaking of growing

this little fur ball may be growing babies in her belly 
she was inseminated on Saturday

mocha puppies coming this august
she will be with us until time for delivery
then return after the puppies are all sold
gosh it's hard to imagine being without her for 2-3 months

she's such a sweet doggie

even when i catch her sitting in the garden :)

easter 2013

Celina took the boys to the city library egg hunt on good friday
corbin found their friend from school, Marisol (purple shirt)
She's a doll. they've all been in the same class for two years.

mom came to town for easter

we shopped
picked out fabrics for new quilts for the boys
red, white, black, grey... stripes, dots, flannel... can't wait!

of course we ate well
lettuce wraps friday night, chicken enchiladas, chili rellenos and guacamole saturday, and ham with the fixings sunday. 

mom played shrinky dinks with the boys
we all colored pieces 

then had fun watching them shrink in 1-2 minutes in the oven

we relaxed some too
even watched tv
mom and i caught up on a few nights of the voice, and watched celebrity apprentice
now i'm hooked on the voice
isn't it so good?

the boys colored eggs with shaving cream and food coloring
it was pretty

the colored shaving cream
otherwise, it didn't really do much to color the eggs
they certainly weren't marble looking

just splotchy
oh well

they had fun playing with left over shaving cream

Easter morning we headed to church early
adam ushered and served communion
the boy's were handsome in their ties

and silly faces

after looking at all the outtakes 
the boys reminded me of those boys on bikes going door to door
the kids were spoiled with an easter bucket of goodness

(jump rope, kite, peeps, jelly beans, skylander, swimsuit, boxers, glow sticks, sticky hands, & a paddle ball)

Easter is special
we are so blessed to have salvation through Jesus' death on the cross 
for our sins
and then he rose again
so that we may have eternal life

He is Risen!
Indeed He is Risen!

Hope you know you are loved always!
