Birthday Weekend!

It was H's 18th birthday yesterday so we all got together at my parents house and have some yummy hamburgers and hot dogs with potato salad and baked beans followed by this!

K and I decorated the cake! We dug in the cabinet and found every holiday sprinkle that my mom had and put it on the cake! It was so yummy and fun!! : )

J and M1 swam a while

M2 took a little rest!

M1 showing her smile! I love this girl!!

Cindy Loo Whoo! : )

M2 tested her photography skills! 

Other than that we didn't do a whole lot this weekend. Saturday we took J to a birthday party at JumpZone then came home to have hot dogs off the grill only to discover we are out of propane! So I cooked them on the smoker! They turned out really good! Saturday morning we had Dish Network installed so now we have TV so there is going to be a lot more staying home for us! 

Well I am off to convince J it is bath time! WIsh me luck!!

Welcome all you Blog Hoppers!

I have been working on updating my background on my blog for the " Blog Hop" that Jenna's Journey is hosting. This Blog Hop is all about commenting and showing bloggy love! I know that I haven't been the best blog reader lately. I read then move on. Well not this time I am taking Jenna's challenge and commenting on every blog I read tomorrow! If you would like to join go over to Jenna's blog and add yourself to McLinky and maybe you will get some new visitors! : ) Or find new blogs to read everyday! : ) 

I had a cute background picked out but for some reason I can't get it to add to my blog so hopefully by tomorrow I can have it all fixed up! 

See ya tomorrow!!! : )

A lot of what we have been up to lately!

 Here is what we have been up too instead of blogging! : )
J played All-Star T-ball! We didn't win any games but they had a great time playing and that is all that mattered to us!
C helped coach J's team this year! C wasn't excited about having to wear the baseball pants for this tournament. The things we will do for our children! : )
We went to the rodeo with our family!
M2 got a hotdog that was as big as her!
Checking out the horses!
Wanted to hang out with the big kids but just wasn't tall enough
J is taking swimming lessons with Miss Courtney
He is pretty good!
He learned to jump off the diving board!

Big Splash!!

Our New Home!

We have lived here for a little over a month and we love it! I am very excited to host some sort of get together here very soon! I think I am going to have a Scentsy party for a girls get together in August sometime!

Without further ado here is our home!
The front
The living room view from the front door. 
( the red chair looks this way because I just shampooed it)
The mantel! I can't wait to decorate this for Christmas time!!! : )
This is just a little nook that we are going to use as a play area. J's room isn't big enough for his train table so we put it in here. 
The kitchen which is no longer this messy! I should have cleaned a little before snapping this picture! I am embarrassed! 
J's bedroom!
another view of his room
J's monster bathroom! Thanks to all who helped us choose this one! He loves it!
Master bedroom
Our bathroom
Our closet! I am so excited to have a closet with a door! At our old house it had big wall length closets but they didn't have any doors so everyone that came to the house and watched in could see everything!
Backyard view one
Backyard view two!

Well thanks for visiting our home! Come by and see us for real one day!

I am a terrible blogger!

Wow! Let me start by saying I am sorry that it has been a WHOLE month since I posted anything! We have been so busy that I haven't had a lot of time to do much of anything! I have tons of pictures to upload so that I can share with you!
I just wanted to do a quick post to show you all I am still alive! : ) 
Look for pictures of the inside of our new house in the next post!!
