Birthday Palooza

Fall is a very busy time of year around here. Not only does school start but we have 3, yes I said 3 birthdays. Evan's is in September....this year we had a Monster Truck themed party. The boy loves cars, trucks, trains, motorcycles, anything with wheels. It's so cute the way he says Monster Truck too. We had a few friends and family over and rented a Monster truck moon bounce and the kids had a blast. I think Evan got a touch of whiplash from all the roughness in the moon bounce, but he never once cried or complained he just wouldn't move his head. Poor Guy!

Next Up, we have my firstborn Jackson...he turned 7yrs old this year. I can't believe it. It just makes my heart hurt sometimes how grown up he's getting. We had a party at Pump it Up, I should have bought a franchise, cause this was his 3rd party there and Miss Emma has informed that is where she wants to have her birthday party which is coming up in a few weeks in December. Gotta love Birthday Season!!!

Before & After: Office Edition

I have been waitin all summer for my BooMama to have this fab event....and just like she promised here's the before and after of the makeover I did of my little office area.

I have this unused wall space that's in the living room and leads into the kitchen, it's a great cental location for a office. My little sister (step-sister) and I traded desks and this past year I finally got a laptop.

I got a parson's chair and lamp from Kirkland's. I got the wall accessories from Hobby Lobby, shelves from pottery barn. They were the most expensive thing, but I wanted deep shelves that would hold the magazine organizer boxes on the top shelf.

My girl Christy over at Bon Bon Boutique helped with this project, she's the best at decorating and an even better friend. I couldn't have done it without her.

Make sure to check out all the other makeover's at BooMama's blog!

Livin on Tulsa Time

About mid-July we loaded up and headed to Tulsa to visit our BFF's the Bells. It just so happened to be Keith's 2week guard trip and he was going to be in Fort Smith, AR which was only 2 hrs away. He had some time off, so we arranged for him to be able to be there with us. It was perfect.

We celebrated B-Mom's birthday while we were there....who needs birthday cake when you can have birthday pizza.

The girls played dress up endlessly.

Even though it was hot, they played outside like it was the month of March.

B and Jackson were inseparable...."superhero and sidekick"

I got a little hung up on the whole Facebook thing, I can waste more time on that site.

Since last we spoke we celebrated the 4th of's a few pics from our celebration at church.

Evan didn't much care for all the noise, so he was sportin these groovy headphones that Keith actually wears at the guard base. Thank you TN Air Nat'l Guard.

Not sure where they got these, but they were giving them out....Halloween...4th of July...what's the difference.uhh? Anyways, it's was a great time and if I remember correctly the weather was great. I hope to have some more posts of our summer happenings. Sorry I've been AWOL, just lots a stuff going on around here.

Facebook Junkie

Hello friends and family....if you've been wondering what happened to me the last few word FACEBOOK! OMG it's so addictive. I've had a facebook account for like ever, but it was just me and my friend Kathy, got kinda boring just the two of us. Then, I don't know who turned the light on, but like everyone I know is on there now and I have all these friends. It's amazing. It's should check it out.

We are headed to the in-laws and then to my dad's house for the 4th of July. It's a fun filled weekend. I can't wait to see everyone. I'm sure I'll have some good blogging when I get back.
Happy 4th

Thank You Uncle Sam!

Since the beginning of time, or since Evan's birth, I always wanted the boys to have bunk beds. Well, when it came down to purchase time I began to have second thoughts. One being, we are going to have big boys. How do I know this? Well, Jackson is in a size 8 and he just finished Kindergarten, and he wears a size 4 1/2 shoe. He's a big boy. So I was afraid the bed might collapse or teeter just a bit under the gigantor jr.'s pressure.

So with the help of the IRS Stimulus check we got the boys new beds. This is a big deal at our house, we never purchase furniture. We usually get furniture from other family members.

So here's the boys room.

It also has these great captain's storage units under each bed. Jackson thought it would be a great place to store his toys, I had to change that plan of course. But there is a shelf for books and what-nots that I said was all his.

So far nobody has hit the floor, that I know of. I'm waiting for the day when they figure out they can jump from one bed to the other.

We've also started potty training with Evan...ugh! It's going pretty good. He calls his underwear "panties" which Keith can't stand. I just had to share this picture...there's nothing cuter than this. I just want to squeeze those little hunkies!
