Happy Birthday Aidan

My baby boy Aidan turned 4 on his First Day of awesome is that?? We did celebrate the night before (since they have early bedtimes now that school has started) We treated him to Orange Leaf....THE BEST FROZEN YOGURT PLACE EVER....and he was able to open his presents one day early too :) :) On his birthday I did make his favorite dinner "Patties" (as we call them) they are sorta like meatballs but they are mini hamburger patties that have onions, cilantro, shredded potatoes in them...they are AWESOME....and I made him a special birthday cake too :) He had a BLAST!!!

First Day of School

Today I sent both of my boys off to school. It was a bittersweet ordeal. They were both so excited to start school but mama was not ready for them leave. Last night Mama got a little chocked up reading a story about the 1st day of this morning Ace asked me if I was gonna cry when I dropped him off....I promised him that I wouldn't lol. Aidan was the first to get dropped off and he did AWESOME...he didn't cry one bit....he ran off and started playing with the kids. I was happy that he did so well but was a little bummed that he was too busy to say goodbye . Then it was off to take Ace to Kindergarten...this morning I walked him into the Cafeteria so that he knew where he was suppose to go :) He sat at his table and we all waited for the bell to ring. He was such a big boy..he said he was a little nervous but that he was 6 now and that he was a BIG kid :) :) So now it is just Ashlyn Mae and Mama at home on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and boy do we have FUN on our GIRLS DAYS :)

Ace and Aidan's Birthday Party

This year the boys wanted to go to Jump City for their Birthday Philip and I are not big on big, cost consuming parties, but we decided to give it a shot and the kids had a BLAST and the cost of the party was pennies :) :) So we are happy that we decided to give in the boys request. They both invited mutual friends and spent the afternoon jumping around, playing games, eating cake, and opening presents :)

Grandma is in town!!!

We love it when Grandma comes to town :) We were lucky to have Grandma and Cousin Adam come to town for a week this Spring! We had lots of fun with them. Lots of sightseeing, playing outside, good food and family time! Here are some pictures of our time Grandma and Adam....

Ashlyn Mae is 2

My little girl is growing up so fast. I can not believe that it has already been 2 years since we welcomed her into the world. It has been so refreshing raising a little girl...I am no longer alone in this house of boys lol. Although I will say that I was not ready for the constant attitude and temper tantrums that little girls throw. I do enjoy all the tea parties, cuddling, singing, putting make up on, etc :)

This past weekend we celebrated her 2nd birthday with family and friends at the park. It was a small party but lots of fun for her :) She enjoyed running around with the boys and sure did LOVE her Elmo cake....until she tried to put out the candle with her fingers...eeekkk...kinda scary! Ashlyn Mae was a very lucky girl because Grandma and cousin Adam were in town for her birthday :)

Crazy Life

Life has been very crazy in our household for the last couple months! But with 3 kids, I would expect any less and I wouldn't change it for the world :) Phil has been working every other weekend and then does Gun Shows all over Arkansas on his weekends we do not get to see lots of him during the weekend :( :( but he is doing sooo good with his business and I am so very proud of him and so happy to see him enjoying his work for a change :) The kids are doing GREAT :) We have been cootie free for about 3 months .... YAY!!! I am so happy and so thankful that my kiddos are finally healthy....esp since this is Pneumonia season for Aidan....fingers crossed that he doesn't get it this year :) Ace is doing really good in school. He loves his teachers and he has lots of friends. He is excited to start Kindergarten next year and even more excited to start football. He is growing into such a big boy and he loves to help me out with his younger brother and sister. He is a little stubborn at times but with parents like us...I guess that is expected ;) Aidan is doing really good. He is 100% potty trained and ready to start Pre School this fall :) He is very excited, esp since he will be going to Ace's old school! Mommy on the other hand is not excited at all!!! I baby Aidan WAY TOO MUCH and I am not sure I am ready to let him out into the big bad world of bullies BUT I have to let him go and grow! It will be hard but I am praying that it is harder for me than it is for him!!! Ashlyn....oh where do I begin??? I sure do have my hands full with this little ball of fire! She is just like her mommy!! She is getting so big and so full of spunk and attitude. Her brother love and adore her BUT they do not like to play with her that much and tend to kick her out of their room ALOT :( so most of the time she is stuck with ME!!! Which means she has started to think that she is a little mommy. If I am in the kitchen cooking..then she is in the kitchen cooking. If I am folding laundry....she is trying to help. If I am in the shower...she has to be in the bathroom too. If I am on the computer...she is on my lap! She loves to copy me. If I tell the boys to clean their room....she is quick to tell them "Clean your room". Her favorite words are "No" and "Stop it" lol but she is so sweet and loving ... mostly to me :) She loves to cuddle on the couch, loves to read to her baby doll, loves to play tea party, and she LOVES to dance :) I just love my kiddos. So although life is crazy and hectic and there are times where I want to pull my hair out....all it takes is one smile or one "Mommy I love you" make it all worth it!
