House Deliveries...

We got two important deliveries this week out at the house. Brick and sheetrock. Our brick came all the from Colorado... apparently, it takes a good month to get from Colorado to Texas because we ordered this brick BEFORE spring break!. Anyways, it's here and hopefully they will be putting it up soon.





They also finished framing the mancave portion of the barn...




(closet storage in the shop)

They also installed the cute little windows that will surround my clawfoot tub...



All the insulation in the house has been sprayed...



There are several others things that have been done, like back porch doors, front door transom window and electrical. I have honestly stopped going out there very much because all I see when I do is how much they HAVE NOT DONE. In fact, the past two times I have been out there, not a soul has been working on our house. They obviously do not see the urgency in which this house needs to be completed. I guess they need a little encouragement from this momma bear who is VERY ready to have her own kitchen, laundry room and bathroom!

Egg Hunting...

On Friday night Remi and Roen had a mini Easter with their baby cousins. It was alot of fun! We had pizza, an egg hunt and of course, lots of goodies and candy!











On Saturday morning, our church had an Easter Egg Hunt at the park. This was so much fun! I love that the boys have so many friends at church! I hope these relationships continue to grow!


This is sweet little Lily. She is in Remi's class at school and actually sits next to him class.







And it wouldn't be a trip to the park without a ride on the Frankie Scmitz! Roen has been begging to ride the train! It is closed during the winter months, so he has seen it many times making it's rounds around the t-ball fields and park since it started running again.

A Visit to the Fire Station...

On Friday, Remi's class took a little walk down to the local fire station and Roen and I tagged along. They got to spray the hose, sit in the fire truck and meet fire dog, Sparky. It was alot of fun and I was so glad Roen got to partake in the fun!

Easter Bunny 2014...

Sometimes, I wonder at what age it will be inappropriate to make my boys take an Easter Bunny picture. If you asked Micah, he would probably say now... hehehe! Anyways, I love them and love that our sweet cousins got to join us in the bunny fun!

Long Eyes..

Earlier this week, driving to swim lessons (we were almost there)...

Remi: I see swim lessons!

Me: You do? I don't see it yet

Remi: Mmmm hmmmm, it's far away. I see it 'cause I have really long eyes!

I just love the things that kids say when they know what they mean but can't quite put it into words!

Fireman Photo Shoot...

Several weeks ago, I had the boys pictures taken... in their firemen costumes. I am knee deep in birthday party planning for Roen's upcoming 3rd birthday and the theme might have soemething to do with firemen :) Anyways, since I had a session to use, I decided to use these pictures for his birthday invitation.

I have to say, Kim captured their little personalities perfectly...

Bluebonnets...

I have to admit, even though I have never really had the desire to take the boys picture in the bluebonnets, I do think they are beautiful. I think these may be my favorite though...

March Reads...

This month, I selected author Charlotte Bronte. Charlotte is one of the three Bronte sisters and it most famous for her classic piece of literature, Jane Eyre. She died at the young age of 38 and published 4 literary works in her very short lifetime. I chose only two of her novels. I loved them both and when you have a chance you should indulge in both!



Jane Eyre: This is the first book I read. I LOVED it! However, I want to make it know that books of this time are not quick 'chic lit' reads. They are long, luxurious reads. They are meant to be savored and each page fully studied. Jane Eyre is a classic for a reason- writing like this should always be appreciated.

Villete: This book was much longer than Jane Eyre and took me almost a full 4 weeks of reading. This was not a book I could read while the TV was on or while hanging out with the boys. It was a slow start and the writing is so intense that without the full focus of the reader it cannot be fully appreciated. I loved everything about this book... beautiful writing that is fully rewarding!

Dirty Clothes...

Roen says the most off-the-wall things sometimes. Yesterday morning, I was trying to pick up around the house and recruit help from the boys. This is a skill Roen has not in the least, even attempted to master...

Me: Roen go get your underwear off the bathroom floor and take them to the dirty clothes

Roen: I tan't (can't), I too big

At Practice...

This is what Roen likes to do at Remi's t-ball practice. I'm not sure if it's because he is just plain and simple more into sports or if it's because this is the second year in a row he hasn't been able to play t-ball... but he is way more into baseball off the field than Remi is on the feild!

Poor little fellow has a hard time sitting there watching his big brother do something that he so badly wishes he could!
