It's starting to feel a lot like Summer

We have one more week of school and went swimming for the first time this year - it's starting to feel a lot like summer.

The things they say...

Funny things my kids said today:

1. We went to Silvia's to drop the kids off (she graciously babysat) so we headed upstairs to take a look at her newly decorated baby room for Baby Brayden. (It's super cute) Preston went with me and I said "Look Preston, the whole room is decorated for the baby - how cute" and his reply: "Yea but where's the baby?"

2. For some reason Preston has really been thinking hard about where he wants to have his next birthday party (When is this you ask, May 2, 2010. I guess he's a planner like his momma) and on our way home today he said "Ooh I know where I want to have my birthday party next year." Me: "Where?" "At Texas Roadhouse" Me: "Oh you really like that place" "Yes, their butter bread. That's what I'm going to get their butter bread" & Bella jumps in "Do they have sweet tea? Yummy, Sweet tea - this is going to be awesome!"

3. Here's another from the other day - I was babysitting my cousin's kids the other day and her daughter, Hannah, is Preston's age. Her and Bella LOVE each other but they also can get into a good fight. Bella and Hannah ran up to me, obviously arguing about something, and so I calmed them down and asked each of them their side. Bella told me her side and then I went to Hannah to get her version of things. She said: "Well, she just needs to respect her elders" and in case you didn't get it she wasn't referring to me she was referring to herself. I really got a laugh out of that.

Time for a change

I felt the need for some Summer in my blog, hence the change of scenery. Hope you like it. In the spirit of summer here are some cute bathing suits I found:

a cute one piece from Le Top:












Kate Mack, the master of kids swim suits:











another Le Top:












And a suit for me - I've been eying this suit for a year but for $250.00 I don't know that my body deserves that yet. I have a few more pounds to loose -













And since I'm adding pictures I thought I'd add a picture of Grace's bedding that I'm sadly about to get rid of (along with her high chair):

May the force be with you...

Here are some pics from Preston's party and below is a video. We had a really good time. I didn't get quite as many pictures as I would of liked but it is what it is. Preston had fun and got a lot of neat stuff. His party started at 4:00 and I was running a little late getting organized but I figured it was no big deal because everyone I know always runs late. So I'm thinking it's fine until I get a knock on my door at 4:01. Great! It's one of Preston's classmates. It all worked out though. Today we are going to clean, clean, clean. Troy got a ping pong table for the garage so we need to actually make it look like a garage rather than a storage unit so he can have his "man" area.

Happy Birthday Little Man

Preston turns 5











Preston turns 4













Preston at 5 months








three months








one month








I can't believe Preston is 6 today! Time goes by WAY to fast. 6 years ago I never would have guessed I'd have such a handsome, funny, sweet, kind hearted little boy. I really hit the jackpot in the kids department. Preston is so thoughtful and caring, the BEST big brother & definately a major mama's boy. I just wish he could stay little with me forever. It kinda seems like a dream how quickly they grow up. I was in labor for about 8 hours with him 6 years ago and now we are preparing for a Star Wars party today. Preston, I hope you have your best birthday yet. I LOVE YOU!!!!
