the long weekend

I am happily sitting in my clean (thanks to my housekeeper) quiet home this dreary Tuesday here in Central Texas. I have to say I wish that Mondays were just part of the weekend. Waking my kids up today was so much easier with that extra day of rest.

We love the weekends over here 😊

We got so much done over the past weekend and that alone felt very nice. Friday I redid my dining area and put out all my Valentine's decorations. I just love this time of year. While most people are in a holiday hangover, this time of year takes me back to when I was pregnant with Aiden. We were anxiously waiting his arrival being that his due date was January 31. Also, being my first baby, we weren't sure when he was coming. So with all of that January is one of my favorite months because of those sweet memories. 

Both the boys had their first basketball games of the season this weekend! I didn't take any pictures because at both games my phone was almost dead. So this weekend I will charge charge charge it so I can take some pictures 😉 We are a huge sports family and I thoroughly enjoy watching my boys play sports. Cameron is the coach of both of their teams and watching him with the boys makes me happy. Coaches put so much work in their teams and many times parents really have no idea what goes on. It makes me proud how important it is for him to be there for his boys. He's a great example to all the boys on the team but especially to ours. 

Other then that we have had a revolving door or workers out at the house working on the shop in the backyard.


It's coming along so fast and everyday once everyone leaves we all head out there to see what's been done. Maybe not too long of course depending on weather, which ours has been pretty nasty lately.

Sunday we headed to church and the kids looked adorable!


I could look at this picture a thousand times...lucky they are mine.

Since my word of the year is SIMPLIFY I have been cleaning out closets and getting rid of things we no longer need. What a fabulous feeling this is! In my big clean out I found Milly's baby book and sadly saw how bare it was.


I was great at keeping up with her first year but then nothing. So last week I ordered pictures to update her book. Since our Sunday afternoon consisted of watching the Cowboys lose (still heartbroken) I decided it was the perfect time to update.



Now it's much better! I wanted her book to be just as nice as her brothers. I seriously kept up with everything for them. I didn't want her to fall into the infamous last baby trap with no baby book or pictures I hear from so many last babies.

Monday was no school (yay!!!) and our housekeeper was coming so we had to get out of the house. We met up with my sister and niece and walked around Bass Pro Shops and then bowled.

My kids are crazy. 



If you follow me on Instagram I insta-storied (seriously that's prob not even a word 😂) our shopping trip. They were funny! If I could have I would have shown all the people staring at my kids (and niece) like they had something wrong with them. Guess it's not okay to just have fun anymore in public?!

After a little shopping over to bowling we went where I whooped up on everyone. I have this crazy competitive side of me that no one would probably guess. I'm not even kidding...any sport activity where my family is involved I win at. I just can't help myself 😉 




And that is all for now! 

Happy Tuesday!!!!
