It's rodeo time here in San Antonio! We lived away until two years ago, and last year we didn't take the kids so I figured it was time. Thursday I actually got a much needed night out (Yay!) and went with Danielle to see Toby Keith. We had so much fun and he put on a really good show.

Saturday Jennifer and I took the kiddos to the fair grounds. They had such a good time and we had a lot of firsts. They had their first funnel cake, Preston got to rope for the first time, and Graceann went on her first roller coaster ride! We also went to the petting zoo, which they absolutely loved!

Now it's the end of the weekend (almost) and I've got to get ready for my busy week. School keeps me so busy and I have a test and paper due this week. Not to mention fitting Preston's karate in there. We just signed him up for baseball and we are both excited for him to start at the end of March. I am trying to figure out where to take them for spring break. I want to do something. I wanted to take them camping but all the cabins are reserved. I guess I'll have to think on that one. (Any suggestions?)

My shopping mission

Since the day Bellarose was born I have loved dressing her up. We lived in Vegas and I stayed at home so we really didn't ever go anywhere. But every morning I got her dressed to the nines so I could take a picture of her in a cute little outfit. I now have a large collection of pictures of my little mini model. Well it's no surprise that since she will be starting kindergarten in August I have already started school shopping for her and it's only February. ;) I still love to dress her up. I found the cutest stuff at gymboree last week and have started to look online because you can find the cutest stuff at little online boutiques. In my search for things I have found the CUTEST shop ever and it just so happens that they are having a really big sale right now!! Here is the link to their facebook page:!/pages/cottoncandyshopcom/75537373217

Their entire site is 20% off right now, what a bargain! I know I will be getting Belle a few things from here for school. Their actual website is:

Have fun shopping!

I'm back!

Wow! Has it really been 8 months since my last post? Time sure flies! And oh the changes we've had.

Me and the kids moved the day after Christmas and that meant that Preston had to change schools. I was really uneasy about him changing schools, because he's already had to switch once, but he's such an easy going little guy who adjusts to change well, so I think he is doing fine. He started karate again, which he loves, and I am also enrolling him in baseball. He is six now and will turn 7 in May.

Bellarose turned FIVE (so hard to believe!) in November and is still doing cheerleading. She's also about to start ballett. Grace just turned 3 last week (Happy Birthday Grace) and is a little stinker. Still not potty trained. That is pretty frusturating.

I started school this semster after a year break. I like all my classes and I'm just hoping I can juggle it all!

We've had an exciting week - my cousin Suz had her little girl, Palin, yesterday and one of my good friends, Aubrie, had her little boy Madden today! Two babies in two days. What a blessing.

The kids and I like our new apartment and we are almost all settled. It's a big change coming from a big house but we will adjust. I'll post pictures as soon as I finish the decorating. :) I'm almost done and we are pretty much settled in. Well I guess this is it for now. Until next time...
