Caught up on Life!

We have been going, going, going lately!

Last Friday we had a fun night out with our small group. 
The church hosted a  scavenger hunt for young couples. 
With 10 people in our group... we were not to serious.
Coming in last place, I can defiantly say our group had the most fun!
The girls!
Saturday we had a lazy day. Slept in....
Did a few crafts, watched the HOGS.. Lose..
and just hung out!
It is always nice to have those days with the family. With Brent working so much during the week, I really look forward to Saturdays and what a perfect way to spend it but at home!
snuggle bug!

Sunday, we worked the church nursery. 
We go to church at 10:00 and then work the 11:30 service a couple times a month. Addison always loves when we are in there with her... at times it is hard because she does not want to share mommy and daddy but we love to see her interact with other children her age!
After church we headed to eat with my parents, came home to a afternoon of football, then headed to Brent's grandparents for dinner. Great Sunday!

Tuesday, I had bible study that morning... which is always great. I have meet so many sweet girls and look forward to it each week!
Addison was ready...
Mom... my mouth is full!
I told Addison to say cheese for the camera and this is what I got..
Sure do love this sweet girl!

Addison has been getting into everything lately. I feel like if I leave the room for 2 seconds she already is into something. Well... Tuesday was one of those days! ha
"But mom I like straws!"
We had over 100+ straws all over the floor.

lately, We have been taking advantage of this nice weather and eating outside on the patio almost every night. 
Addison loves it and she always eats pretty well when she is outside!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

A night with friends!

Tuesday night we headed over to a friends house for a play date and dinner.
They live right down the street so it is perfect.
Heather and Kyle have a little girl that is Addison's age, she was born July 1 so they are a month apart. 
We had so much fun with them and the girls had a great time together. 
Its cute to see the different things they do and
 so nice to hang out with people in your same stage of life!
The girls sitting on the couch. 
We thought it was funny that they kind of resembled each other!

Heather cooked taco soup.. it was so yummy.
Lately, we have been having a HUGE problem with Addison not wanting to eat anything.. but she LOVED the soup. Heather even gave us leftovers and she ate it again tonight for dinner, along with what I cooked... Breakfast (my favorite)! This might be a everyday meal. ha, ha

Tonight, we did not want to go to bed. So we were up dancing and rocking on our cow.
I can not wait to put A in dance classes. Rhythm and shoes here we come!
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week!

Caught on video!

Tonight we finally caught it on video....
I have to say... This is one of the cutest things she has done! :)

Can't believe how big Baby A is. My little girl is Turing into a toddler!
Bitter sweet but thanking God and enjoying every moment of it!

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

Will my marriage last?

Will my marriage last?- was the topic Sunday on our, Questions: Honest Answers to Tough issues, series.

Matthew 5: 27-37

1. no one ever imagines it wont last
2. transitions will test the strongest of marriages ( new job, baby, moving, death, etc.)
3. many marriages do not last


1. refuse to tolerate lust in you heart
Matt 5: 27-30
27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[a] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
2. refuse to believe marriage is temporary
Matt 5:31-32
31 “It has been said, ‘Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a certificate of divorce.’[a] 32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, makes her the victim of adultery, and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

3. refuse to break the promise to God and your spouse
Matt 5: 33-37
33 “Again, you have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill to the Lord the vows you have made.’ 34 But I tell you, do not swear an oath at all: either by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool; or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the Great King. 36 And do not swear by your head, for you cannot make even one hair white or black. 37 All you need to say is simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.

Nick ended with this statement:
" The grass isn't greener on the other side, the grass is greener where you water it."
So work on your marriage. It is not easy BUT worth it.

New shoes

With fall just around the corner, I thought it was time to start looking for new shoes, so we headed out in the pouring rain to one of our favorites... Bella Jacks.
Of course they had a million things I could have bought but I was on a shoe mission
... and we accomplished our goal! 
I found her the cutest little black shoes, they are "Pickle Shoes" ... I may have to go back and get every color or at least a few more! :)

I'm sure most of you moms have seen or at least heard of these shoes... they squeak when they walk.
Brent is beyond excited! 
When Addison starts walking full time, don't worry- the squeakers are coming out.
But right now it is just too cute!
Do you think we figured out how they work? ha

Tonight, Brent's grandparents came over with a surprise...
496 DIAPERS!! 
I think we are set for a while! We are so blessed to have such great family.

Bitter sweet moment:
A took her 1st step tonight. Of course we didn't catch it on video because it was out of no where but it was so cute. 
Addison- You were standing holding your cup and decided you wanted to come to mommy. You looked straight at me on a mission .... and took your very 1st steps. Watch out world her I come!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Let's go central!

We were busy today!
I had to run a few errands this morning, come home to clean our messy house, then head to Samuels football game.

I needed to pick a few things up at the mall and when we went into Dillards we found these...
She went crazy when she saw them. So I had to buy her her very own Yo Gabba Gabba toy! What kid wouldn't want one- right?? Ha

She has carried it everywhere!

After our nap we got ready for the central game.
Cjh had a pep-rally today and they introduced all the football players. They asked 5 boys to come forward and Samuel was one of them. They blind folded them and told them a cheerleader was gonna kiss them( on the cheek) and they had rate it. Little did the boys know the "cheerleaders" that were kissing them was their moms! Ha
They were suppose to rate the kiss 1-5, Samuel gave my mom a 9! Then they took there blind folds off and realized it was their moms kissing them- Faces were red!!

Our little cheerleader!
She does great at the games. We are not big sitters.. We like to walk the stands but it makes for a great nights sleep. 
My Nana, Addison's great grandma is in town so we enjoyed visiting with her during the game! She hasn't seen A for a couple of months so she was ready to love on her!
It was a great night... A little cold... but central won!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Quick Craft

While Addison was napping today I was looking through Pintrest.. of course.
I came across this...
One thing that drives me nuts is having piles and piles of paper scattered around the kitchen counters and tables. In a town home there is just not enough room for clutter! So I thought these would be perfect to keep bills and other papers we have laying around in. 

How to:
What you need-
cereal box
hot glue gun

I cut the box in half.
Then covered it with fabric- I had left overs from my curtains
You could cover with scrapbook paper.
Added magnets to the back
They are perfect for the fridge! Just need to add the labels.
Fun and easy and the best is... it was free! I had everything I needed at home. 

Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!

3 Likewise, teach the older women to be reverent in the way they live, not to be slanderers or addicted to much wine, but to teach what is good. 4 Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, 5 to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God.

Go Hogs!

Saturday night, my family come over to our house for dinner and to watch the Hogs game. 
Addison was so excited to cheer on those Hogs!
By the end of the night we were undressed, a little tired, still excited, and loving all the attention. 

My Mom and I have been working hard to finish our wreaths. I love decorating for fall. Pumpkins, pumpkins and more pumpkins!
Brent just loves walking through our door everyday with this huge thing hanging on it! lol 

Hope everyone has a great week!
