5 Year check-up

I got to spend some time with Mason yesterday. Too bad it was to the doctor...but I will take any time I can get! We did get to enjoy some lunch together and Chick-fil-a. He would have had more fun if he hadn't been so worried about going to get his shots! He did much better than I thought and he shocked himself I think. Everything checked out perfect...well she detected a heart murmur that we will watch but other than that he is healthy as a horse.

Mason- 5 year stats and favorites
  • height- 45 3/4 inches (95%)
  • weight- 50lbs (95%)
  • shoe size-1
  • clothes size-5/6
  • favorite food-honey buns
  • favorite drink-chocolate milk (you still want milk when you first get up and right before bed)
  • Bedtime-anytime between 7:00-8:00 (sometimes on weekends and ball game nights its later) AND you still sleep with us!!
  • favorite toys-bat and ball (and that is all you do! You never really play with any toys)
  • You love to play outside and usually you are out there by 8:00 a.m. and you stay until we make you come in for dinner, bath and bed.  
  • Favorite thing to wear-You could be a spokesperson for under armour. That is ALL you want to wear. I told you that you better enjoy wearing it now because they do not let you wear it at the Kindergarten may buy it for a few weeks :) 
  • Favorite T.V. Show- you do not watch television...oh how I wish you did!! You and Cullen don't have time for t.v. I guess because I can't get either one of you to watch just one entire show! Maybe soon their will be something that catches your attention but until then we can find you outside!!!

Mother's Day

I love being a Mommy and I am so glad that God picked me to be the mommy of my 3 boys. I cannot imagine my life without them and each one adds their own spice to the family. I love Mother's Day crafts! I cannot wait to get home and get to see what the boys made for me at school This year takes the prize with Braxton silhoutte. I love it and can't wait to get it framed. Cullen's sweet little handprints and Mason's beautiful flower were just icing on the cake. Home-made gifts are my favorite by far. 

The boys surprised me with a new Keurig! I am having the best time tasting the different flavors and oh how I love just having to stick my mug underneath and press the button. How nice!! 
Nothing could be better than these 3 prizes though. They are the reason I get to celebrate. Thank you God for giving me the opportunity to love these children! I am forever thankful!!

Happy Mother's Day 2012!

Baseball Boys

So proud of these two boys! They have had an outstanding season so far and I just cannot say enough about them. They both are on teams that...let's just say I would not have chosen these teams, nor coaches, if I got to pick. Unfortunately when you are good you get picked up quick by the lucky coach that gets to pick first. That's what happened this year and it has been a good learning experience for everyone. Braxton has grown and matured so much on and off the field. He has become a leader and an encourager to his teammates. He has, for the most part, carried his team His frustration with his teammates hasn't gotten the best of him and he keeps on going. I am so proud of him, not because of how many outs he gets, or how many home runs he hits, but because he has become someone that others look up to. That makes my heart super happy!!
Mason...well he is just Mason. My little Tasmanian Devil. That kid is something else and he is making a name for himself right quick! When he is on he is ON! What I love about him is that he is happy just to be there playing in a game. Always smiling, even when he strikes out. He hit a grand slam during the game this past weekend and still doesn't even realize how awesome it was, all he wants to do is make it home and score a run.   I hope he is always this way playing sports. It is much less stressful watching him play than Braxton! :) The season is winding down and I am looking forward to watching the last few weeks of ball. Come on sweet summer~time!
