My sweet boy

I was able to get some cute pics of DD this morning sporting his Toms!! It is obvious he is a morning person just like his Mommy & Daddy! He had only been up about 20 minutes! I love this lil stinker so much!

DD's new shoes!

So, my friend LeAnn has a pair of these shoes and I have always liked them! I started looking at the website and although I really wanted a pair for myself I decided to buy some for Dylan! I LOVE all the different styles they have! The graffiti pair & skull pair are really cute but I wanted to buy something that would go with everything! I finally decided on the black pair! The best thing about these shoes is with every pair you purchase, TOMS will give a new pair of shoes to a child in need. One for one. Dylan absolutely LOVES these shoes! The look so cute on him! I will get some more pics of him tomorrow once I have an outfit to match them! They have women's, men's, youth & tiny toms! They have a pink glitter pair for little girls and they are precious! I just might have to get my precious niece some for Christmas! Visit for more info!

Wedding gift

This is a wedding gift I got for my friend Laura! I ordered the name art from another one of my friends, her website is It was a huge hit! Laura loved it & told me it was her favorite gift of all! They make great gifts!! I have already ordered some for Christmas presents!

DD's 1st trophy!

So, when I got to work this morning my coworker/friend Cindy (her grandson played on Dylan's team) brought me some goodies for Dylan! Coach Bill & Coach Jared got all the kids a trophy, a baseball card poster and a goodie bag filled with candy! I will post a pic of the poster once I frame it! I am going to hang it in DD's room! When I gave the stuff to Dylan he was so excited! I am so glad that we all got to have this experience. It was so nice meeting everyone, we will miss them! We really enjoyed it, but I think it will be more fun when he gets a little older! I can't believe how fast my baby boy is growing!

Dylan's last fall ball game

So, today was DD's last game and it could not have gone any worse! He would not play at all! It was fun watching all the other kids play, they did great! Our team won the first game which means they play another game to see if they win the tournament! I am not sure yet if they won b/c they are playing now! We left b/c Dylan was tired and he did not want to play ball at all! I am a little sad b/c I wish he would have played. The team is getting together at the park for cupcakes after the game. Then, they are getting their trophies! Dylan just was not having it today and so we left! So, he just sat by the bleachers and played with his cousins while his team was playing. I have to say my hubby was right when he said he was too young, but I guess I had to learn the hard way. Hopefully, he will be ready for it in a couple of years! At least it was a pretty day!

Feeling so blessed

I was blog hopping on one of my favorite blogs and I came across this! I know that I am blessed but every now & then I see something like this and it reminds me once again just how blessed some of us really are! I thank God everyday for everything I have, I love my life! It's sad to me to think that so many people out there can't even read among many other things. Just wanted to share.

Stefy & NayNay's Halloween costumes

So, today we had a yard sale at MiMi's house and I was exhausted when I got home! I have been trying to get Halloween pics of the kids since it will be dark when we all get to see eachother on Halloween! Jodie & Joey are going to be indians too and they even made a real teepee to use at the church for trunk or treat! Stefy had been to a birthday where they got their hair & makeup done and she was looking so cute! Then, NayNay was about to go to a Halloween party and she had her costume on too! So, I thought it would be a perfect time to snap a few pics! Booger is going to be Captain America and he & Dylan were too busy playing so I just took some of the girls! I took these pics in literally 5 minutes! The gnats were terrible so I didn't want to make the girls suffer for too long! They are growing up way too fast! I love them so much! I can't wait till Halloween, we are all going to have a blast!

Kitchen pics



So, I decided to change a few things in my kitchen. As you can see the kids have their own table and art easel! They love it! These aren't exactly the decorative pieces I want but I have to say it is kid friendly! I am still working on some other things but I love the curtains! I am wanting to get another table & chairs but considering that we just bought living room furniture it may be next year before we can do that! I have thought about spray painting it but we will see!

Good times!

Today Quinn & I took the kids to the Pumpkin Patch! It was Quinn & Maddie's first time to go and they loved it! I think Quinn had more fun than!! The weather was nice too! We rode the wagon out to get our pumpkins and then we walked around and went to the petting zoo! We started to let the kids get their faces painted but DD got in trouble and then decided to pitch a fit! It was time to go so we did! We even saw some friends we haven't seen in a while! Although it was exhausting chasing after a wild 3 1/2 year old, we had a great time! I love my family so much!

Sweet MG

I took a few pics of Maddie today at MiMi's! She is such a sweet girl! I love her so much!

Gotta love a bargain!

I have been looking for a Radio Flyer wagon forever at my favorite thrift store and I am always too late! Almost every time I go to look for one someone I pass down one of the aisles has one in their buggy! This time I got it and it was only $6! I was so excited! I can't wait to use it! It will look great in pictures!!

New living room furniture

So I saw a coupon on and that convinced me to go get some new furniture! It saved us about $200! We decided to go with a leather type furniture this time since the micro fiber has nothing but stains all over it!! This is our early Christmas present and I have to say we are all loving it!

Ride for Ryan 2010

This was our first year to be a part of the Ride for Ryan and I have to say it was awesome! I got chill bumps a few times! It is such a great day to celebrate such a great person! I never knew Ryan but I have heard so many stories about him! Just to see all of his family & friends come together to celebrate him says it all! It was a record breaking year...they had 133 bikes!! There is no doubt that he was looking down at everyone smiling yesterday! I am so glad I got to be a part of such a special day!
