Good Times

We have had a busy and fun week.....
Last Saturday:
Hailey had another t-ball game and did great. She loves running the bases and tries to slide every time. It was so hot that day, but she goes right out and does her best.

After the game we got ready to head out to Holly Springs to celebrate Derek's birthday. I just have to say that my older brother Derek is AWESOME!! He is very caring and always willing to help out when needed. He is such a great example to me. He is a wonderful father to his children, a super fun uncle to my kids, and again an AWESOME brother to me. Love you Derek, our family is lucky to have you!

We had a really fun time at the party with the family. We all got together to play Beatles Rock Band, and it was a blast! This was the first time I had ever played Rock Band, and of course now I want it. Hailey loved to sing and Kaleb loved the drums. Stephen did great on the guitar and singing. I think my favorite was the drums.

Mothers Day was great! My husband and kids totally spoil me and I love it! I am so thankful to be a mom. It is very challenging at times, but also very rewarding and I am blessed to have such wonderful kids. We had a nice big dinner with everyone including Amber's parents. The husbands got the meal together and it was delicious, steak, potatoes, salad, and rolls, with a yummy chocolate pie for dessert!

Stephen and I celebrated 8 fantastic years together. We had a nice evening out to the Cheesecake Factory and then Stephen surprised me with my favorite dessert, cookie cake, that we ate by candlelight outside at North Hills. He is so romantic and sweet! It was a fabulous anniversary I look forward to spending eternity with my handsome hubby!
Kaleb had a field trip to a Amante's Pizza. The kids all got to make their own pizza's. He loved it, and I loved it to b/c we got to eat pizza and they have the best pizza. Every Monday is kids night, so we will probably go back for an FHE.

We be jammin! My mom, Amber, and I (with some help by the kids and Stephen) made a whole bunch of delicious strawberry jam. This was awesome, the house smelled like sweet berries and it was fun to be with everyone. I love strawberry jam season.

Whoa! That was a lot, but I hope you made it all the way through:) This week is a busy one as well, so hope you come back for more updates.
