Thanksgiving 2014...

This year, we spent Thanksgiving in Gainesville at Micah's Gran's house. The first thing the boys did when we got there was go out back by the garden and barns and explore. They love it out at Gran's house! The boys also got to open some Christmas presents while we were there... which they loved!













Literally the BEST picture we could get of all the kids, ha...



And the boys were plumb tuckered out by the time we headed home...

Happy Thanksgiving...

I hope everyone has a special day blessed with family and good food.

Here are some sweet little pictures from Remi's Thanksgiving program at school. Remi honestly, acted bored through most of his program but it is always sweet seeing your little one on stage. With Roen still sick, he missed out, but he would have been a little Indian. The 3 year olds are always Indians and the 4 year olds are pilgrims... which means Roen won't ever get to be the Indian... that breaks this momma's heart :(


Here is my sweet little Remi pilgrim... smack dab in the middle.


This turkey is tradition at the boy's school. Each student and parent decorate a feather to create this beautiful and colorful turkey. This year I just did the boy's handprints- they are on the top left and bottom right.



This is the Thankful Turkey that Roen's class did. The feathers are their footprints and the body is their handprints...





And here is Remi's little Thankful Turkey from his class...


I love this so much. Simple and to the point!

From This to That...

Well, my little apple computer got an upgrade recently. I have had this big ole' tower since before Remi was born and I was just so tired of lugging it around, it being under my desk and in the way, so I found the cutest little solution.

I got a Mac Mini! It is that little square box on my desk and it just sits right next to my monitor. I LOVE it :)



Oh, and see that cute little golden poodle on my desk... she is new too.... in case you didn't know, I love poodles :)

A Weekend in Angelo...

The boys and I spent the weekend in San Angelo. It had been since August, so it was definitely time to pay family a visit. Of course, there were lots of sad faces and tears when we left, but the boys had a blast as usual. Here is a little picture of the boys and their sweet little cousin Mallorie in their Sunday best :)

Home Sick....

Well, Roen missed his first day of school yesterday :(

Poor guy it always starts with coughing, then fever, then asthma. He is also missing today, which means he is not getting to participate in his Thanksgiving program... which really breaks my heart. He seemes to really enjoy getting to play quietly alone, while Remi is at school...



The boys also got their school pictures back this week. I think they turned out adorable despite the fact that I completely forgot it was picture day, didn't have time to do their hair or tuck in their shirts!

Reality...

You remember that cute little play room I spent so much time making look like my boys love to sit quietly and still looking at books, never making any messes...?

Well, here is how this playroom looks anytime they come up here to play...



Oh, and don't mind all those cords... that is Remi's favorite 'toy'. He will spend an entire hour plugging things into each other! I can assure you he did not get that from me or Micah because neither of us know anything about electronics.

The Master...

Well, here is a little look at the master bedroom and bath. These were the only two areas of the house that I would say are 'big'. Hopefully we will be in this house forever, so it was kind of important to do them 'right'.

Here is our bedroom. Please ignore the bare shelves... that will take time. Of course, on the other wall is a TV, but who really needs to see that :) I was pretty adamant about having built-in night stands with storage. Micah LOVES to unpack his pockets at the end of the day and he is like Mary Poppins in this way... they seem to hold all sorts of junk that I really don't like looking at... so I gave him two drawers to cure that situation :) Oh, and he likes to sleep with a million pillows so that lower cabinet makes the perfect spot to hide those!



On the left, double doors open up into our bathroom... maybe my favorite room of the house. We made our bathroom big and open with lots of white... a white bathroom makes it feel extra clean to me :)







The doors on either side of the mirror are our closets.



And here is my closet. I put a sweet little gold chandelier in my closet because honestly, every girl deserves a chandelier to light her most important space. I also wanted floor to ceiling built-ins in our closet. My hopes were that by putting storage in the closet meant we didn't have to clutter up our bedroom with big dressers. I sort of like a room to have space to breath. My closet isn't huge, but it is for sure the biggest I have ever had....



On one side I have triple rods- the other side has hanging for dresses and off-season up top. Also on either side, are little shoe towers. The are only wide and deep enough to hold one pair of shoes, but the shelfs are adjustable and they go all the way to the ceiling which gives all my boots a perfect little home.



I am waiting on some outdoor furniture to arrive before I show pictures of the outside, but those will be next. Happy Thursday!

Silly Faces....

The boys got into the stickers and made some pretty creepy, silly faces...

It's Finished....

Micah's beloved mancave is finally finished! Furniture and the refrigerator is being delivered in the morning and I feel sure I know where Micah will be Sunday afternoon :)




The tall ceilings are for all the animals with long antlers he will hang. The empty space between the upper cabinets is for a TV.








The safe door to the tornado shelter/gun safe. This is actually inside his closet which is for all his hunting gear and there is also a small desk inside this closet.

And here is the actual 'shop' portion- some storage closets,a place to park his truck if needed and most importantly, a place to clean fish...

Flag Football Comes to an End...

This past Saturday, was Remi's last football game. To say I was excited might be an understatement. Remi never did get into the sport... it was a long season of bribing and frustration. Funny enough, I think his last game might have been his best... by this I mean I saw him do more running than walking :) His favorite part was getting the medal!

Here are some pictures of his last game...







And here are the pictures he got taken at the beginning of the season...
