Our trip to beautiful Newfoundland

I certainly am behind in blogging. I'm gonna try and play a little catch up and then get back on track...try!!!

We had a wonderful trip back home to Newfoundland just after Christmas. The boys absolutely loved enjoying a second Christmas complete with some fun in the snow! Chris and I enjoyed some time together. We managed to get out for some date nights at our "Old Grounds". Our trip was even extended as we got snowed in and had to catch a later flight back to Texas!!!

Fall Fun

I just love this time of year! The air is starting to get cooler, Trick or Treating, Thanksgiving around the corner, Christmas around the corner. Soon time to pull our warmer clothing, sweaters, and hot drinks. It's my favorite time of year :-)

Happy 5th Birthday Matthew

I can hardly belive my first born is FIVE YEARS OLD! His babyhood is surly over. I'am sure I'll love this age as I have loved his earlier milestones. And, I'll embrace his growing independence. But, sometimes when I look at him I can still see my itty bitty baby in his face.

The morning of Matthew's birthday he just made my day. In his heart he must of known how I felt. I was saying Matthew - I just can't believe you're five years old today. His reply was "Mommy, I'll always be your baby". That was just music to my ears!!!

Matthew had a fantastic birthday. Cupcakes with his friends at preschool. A party with his playgroup friends at Chick Fil A. And, a famly day to the lego store and Dylan's Canday Bar. He got a ton of legos for his birthday. Legos are his latest favorite!

Another stage for the THREE of us.

Preschool! We all had a first this month.! Matthew has started PreK , Andrew Preschool, And myself teaching preschool. So far it's been a fun adventure! The boys have made many new friends. One night just as Matthew was falling asleep he says to me "Mommy I can't believe it I'm finally in school!" The boys little conversations in the back seat on the way home from school are just ADORABLE. I think my favorite was on Tuesday their chapel day. They were both talking about their lessons on God. And, I overheard Matthew telling Andrew ... and Jesus made my legos. LOL!

Three Year Old!!

I can hardly believe it my baby is three. Now, he'll be the first to tell you he's not a baby - he's now a "Big Boy!" baby he'll always be.

Andrew had a fantastic birthday week. On his actual birthday we had a fun filled family day. Chris took the day off work and we headed to Splashway waterpark. It was so fun! Matthew enjoyed most of the water slides - he has no fear this year. So, him and his dad had a blast trying our the slides. Andrew, on the other hand was a little timid of some of the slides. He stayed in his comfort zone on the smaller slides and splashing about having a good time. We packed our cooler with lunch to have at the park. And, on the way home we stopped for a pizza for dinner. The boys were just pooped once we got home and slept so well that night.
The next day we had a little party with some of his close friends at Chick Fil A. Andrew's face lit up when daddy and the Chick Fil A cow arrived. He also LOVED his cake that I proudly made :-) I"m trying my best to keep up the tradition of creating the boys cakes each year.
Andrew's been spoiled with awesome presents from friends and family all week. He has a very nice collection of Disney Cars now that is his latest favorite.

Ahhhh to be three!!! Just don't grow up too fast, too soon my little boy!

Cooking Again!!!

During grocery shopping - Matthew tells me he wants to make a pizza. So, he proceeds to pick everything out for his pizza. We come home and make lunch! It actually tasted good!
Our boys really love cooking and baking!
