A boring weekend....yeah just the way I liked it.

We didn't do a whole lot. We loved it. Today everyone got to pick something for us all to do together. Britt picked playing Monopoly...ugh game went forever she won so she was happy. Brae picked watching a pokemon movie. Just nice and laid back. I even took time to read a book this weekend.

So boring weekends makes for a boring blog but for a happy me!

Fun family time

After a week of doctors appointments and travel we needed some fun time before heading home so to Sea World we went. We always enjoy going and are blessed to get free year long passes each year. It also gave me a chance to play with the waterproof digital camera I had gotten for Christmas. It was nice having the convenience of digital and not having to worry about it getting wet and I love the underwater shots.

I love these pics of Brae crawling across the lily pads and hippos because they float as you touch them and you get knocked off. Britt couldn't make it past the first one Brae shimmied all the way across. Good self esteem booster for him to do something that she couldn't easily. He gave me the thumbs up pic when he was done.

Next time she will use waterproof markers

We got up to go to Texas this morning and well I had to blink several times before I figured out what I was looking at in the bathroom mirror.

See I had a perfect flower on my cheek, blue hair, blue arm. My darling daughter had made me a beautiful pillowcase for mothers day. She wrote #1 Mom on it, flowers and used lots of her favorite color blue! It didn't dawn on me that she wouldn't have used the permenant fabric markers. But no she didn't so when I went to bed with my hair wet I woke up to a mess. It was actually funny and I didn't want Britt to feel bad. She is making me a new pillowcase with the right markers. Of course the markers that came off so easy during the night sure didn't want to come off this morning.

Birthday Party Fun

Pirates took over our house today for the big 10 party!

First my little pirate...

We had two cakes...
This one was a last minute decision because I was worried about the ship cake not being enough.

Blowing out the candles

The pirate gang...

He's 10!

My boy! 10 years ago I thought I still had about 12 weeks before you arrived. You decided to make your appearance early. You are a momma's boy thru and thru and that is just fine with me.

Today 10! I still can't wrap my head around it. I no longer have a baby in single digits.

You are a gift, you are wonderful, you make me laugh, you make me want to pull my hair out above all you make me thankful.

Build an ark

I think we need to be building an ark with the amount of rain we are getting. Rain rain and more rain. Instead of an ark we are building a cardboard pirate ship...I don't think it will get us far in the rain but I know the kids will have lots of fun playing in it tomorrow for Braden's birthday.

My time away for the home school conference was great. Of course it was great having friends to travel with and talk with the whole way there, into the night and back home again. I am so blessed with them. We also got to see a movie and have dinner at somewhere different all in all fun time.

Today will be spent planning for tomorrow since Brae will turn 10...eek. I am suppose to be making a pirate ship cake...I should at least go get a plan together for that since I am behind. Oh well it will all fall together...i hope.
