First Tee Ball Practice

This is Mason's first time to be able to play tee ball. He had his first practice today. He did so good. He had to borrow Cody's glove, but still did good. After Jacob and Mason got done warming up/throwing the ball to each other, it was time to run bases. There were several kids in front of him, so we thought he was paying attention. Well, when it was his time to run to first he jets straight up the middle of the field. It was the cutest thing ever. Then after he ran the bases it was time to hit off the tee. He hit the ball the hardest and I was one proud mom.

Spring Cleaning

Since we have been off these past two days, I decided to start my spring cleaning early. I put Cody to work. He has been wanting to help me, so I let him vacuum our living room. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!

Hayden's Photo Shoot

While we were in Houston, my cousin's wife, Angie, used her professional grade camera and took some pictures of Hayden. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Thanks Angie!

Aunt Susan's SUPRISE 50th Birthday

Saturday morning, Hayden and I went to my Aunt YaYa's (Shelly) house to carpool with them to Houston at 7:30 a.m. We left Georgetown around 8:00 a.m. We had such a blast on our trip to Houston. My uncle Andy is very knowledgeable and was giving me a lot of in site on what's going on with our politics. Whenever we arrived to my cousin Caleb's house, we ate pizza for lunch and then got busy on putting up decorations for my Aunt Susan's SURPRISE birthday party.

After we put decorations up, we worked on our 'Evolution of Dance' routine that 5 of us ladies put together for my Aunt. Most of us worked on the dance for a few weeks, and some did not (my mom!). Anyway, then my mom and I went to Walmart to pick up the rest of the items that were left off the first trips list. It was funny, because my mom said,'' I hope we don't run into Susan here, that would be a hard explaination''. I laughed so hard!

While everything thing was going on for the day, my baby Hayden had it rough. He has been having loose bowels (diharea) this whole past weekend. So, he was very irritable and a mommy's boy the whole time. But he was a trooper and really enjoyed singing 'Twinkle Little Star' on the microphone, to the guest.

It was time for Susan to drive up and all the guest were outside to wave and sing happy birthday to Aunt Susan when they pulled up to the house. Her face was priceless. She seemed very surprised. We all went into Caleb's backyard and had some good hamburgers and fries, then coke floats. It was chilly and so most of the non family guest went inside. But not us! We all huddled around one table and ate. It was too funny when my mom got up from the table and said I'll be back, it's too cold. Well, whenever she came back she had the grill cover and was using it as a blanket. It was the most funniest thing. This guy that was sitting with us was saying, that he couldn't believe she was using a 'pool cover' as a blanket. My mom said hey, if this is a pool cover and it's fitting snug, that's not funny! But he knew and was just messing with my mom.

It was then time to do our dance. It was great, I laughed the entire 6 minutes and it seemed as though the guest loved it. After that, we did some kareoke, 'We are family'. Then we packed up, said our goodbye's and hit the road back to Austin.

We left around 8:30 p.m. During the trip home, I asked some more questions and Uncle Andy again delivered a wonderful explanation for everything. I was in and out of the conversation, due to going to bed late the night before and then waking up in the middle of the night. At one point, I woke up to flashing police lights. I was totally out of it, I thought I had been in a wreck. (I wasn't driving). Anyway, when I finally woke up and realized that there was no wreck, but there had been a fire and it had crossed the highway and they rerouted us another way. The Police said if we took this particular road that it was 12 miles to 290. So we went and about 30-45 miles later we ended up in Giddings on 77. At that point I was extremely tired and wanted to rest up before traveling home from Georgetown to Jarrell. When Aunt Shelly woke me up she said 'we are here'. When I looked outside we were at my house. She had brought me out to my house because she didn't want me to travel by myself. I have the best family ever.
