Play Ball

Ty and Ryan decided to play some ball in the yard after dinner. Ty LOVES this yard. We spend the majority of our time outside these days. Thank goodness for some cooler weather today.

Today we made it back to the gym to work out. After a nice work out we hit the pool. This afternoon we planted some more flowers and worked around the house. Tomorrow night I will be hosting a small get together/meeting at the house, so I want it to look great. I can't believe I am hosting something so soon but I am ready to start taking advantage of this great house.

Curb Appeal

We decided to plant some new flowers today. The inside is almost complete. We are just lacking some pictures on the wall. It feels great to be settled, almost.....

Summer Time Soiree

We had a great night out last night! Our good friends the Mauldin's hosted a great party. The food and wine was excellent. I feel so blessed to have such a great group of friends. We can't wait to see everyone next weekend as we celebrate the 4Th of July! Anna, Christina, Lindsay, Me, Lacy, Pam, and Christina.
North Side Girl's

Ty and Sevi

My Best Friend, Sara was out of of town this weekend so her little girl, Sevi was staying with her Grandparent's in Temple this weekend. I have not seen Sevi in so long and she is the most precious little girl I have ever seen. She just turned 13 moths old and she was walking all over the house trying to keep up with Ty. I am certain that Ty and Sevi will get married one day. Look at how cute these two curly heads are. They are going to make some cute babies one day!!! Ty had his arm around Sevi..... PRECIOUS!

I will admit Sevi has a tight little grip..... she wanted the trains, too. I just loved watching them play together.

I wish I could have seen Sara but I loved seeing Sevi yesterday. We had a fun visit. I can't wait to get Ty and Sevi together again!

Supper Club

I love these girls. The bottom picture is a picture of the North Side girls!!
Wednesday night our Supper Club met at the King's house for a great Dinner. We never met in May because we were all too busy.
In July we will meet twice. In two weeks we will be heading to Port Aransas for the first annual Supper Club Weekend Road Trip. I know we are going to have a great time.
Tonight we are getting together with a few friends for a Summer Time Soiree. I am sure I will have pictures to post.
We have had a great day. I can't tell you how much I love our new neighborhood. We always run into friends.

23 Months Old

Ty turned 23 months old today. We are going to have a 2 year old on our hands next month.
We are busy preparing our house so we can host a Choo Choo Train Birthday Party!
We love you so much Ty! Thank you for being the sweet loving boy that you are.

Playing Catch Up

Below are pictures from our move last week. We have been in our house one week already and I LOVE it more and more everyday. We finally had Internet and cable installed yesterday so I am back on line. Ty stayed in his PJ's almost the whole day because he did not want to miss anything.
Ty's favorite new ride.

I can't believe how long it has been since my last post. I am not sure where to start. Well, our power was back up and running on Monday Morning so that was a huge blessing. Monday afternoon was spent trying to get un-packed and organized. Well, that is very hard to do with a toddler. I was not getting anything done and I started feeling very overwhelmed.
Therefore, we made a call to Nana and Papa and they said they would keep Ty for a few days so I could try and get us settled. We met half way in Hillsbro on Tuesday and I picked Ty up this Morning. WOW!!! I got so much more accomplished than I ever could have imagined. I must say that my wonderful Mother has been over here everyday helping. I also had some evening commitments this week so it helped that Ty was playing with all of his cousins in Keller.
Well, I have more pictures to post and I will try to get to them soon. We hope to get a lot accomplished this weekend, too.

One Day At A Time

This Move has had it shares of ups and downs. We are currently with out power in our new home(we have been with out power since Friday). It is VERY hot. My parents have took us under their wings and we have been staying here since Friday. We are hoping to have power by tomorrow. Our new home is still a mess because it is too hot to do a lot over there. The Best news is we are completely out of our old house. It looks great and the carpets will be cleaned tomorrow.
The move has brought out the worst in us. We are just tired and ready to fill settled. I have tons of pictures that I will try and post soon. We are without Internet and cable until Thursday!

Leaving On A U-Haul

Ryan got a lot loaded today. Thanks Mom and Dad for coming over and helping us today. As you can see Ty and the Dogs are ready for the move to the Noth Side.

Swim And Splash Day

This afternoon we were able to spend the day with some of our favorite friends. The splash mat lasted for a while but all the kids were ready to hit the pool. Ty is still our little fish. It is a good thing we start swim lessons next week.

When Mom's Not Looking

A little boy can pull out drawers and take some clothes out. ( At least Ty stopped to smile when I took the picture). Find all sorts of fun stuff in a bathroom.
I was wanting to pack up my bathroom today. Thanks Ty for helping me get started.

Oh, Jewels.

You are probably wondering where I was during all this and I was in the same room (our bedroom). We kept big storage containers under our bed so I was taking the containers out and throwing stuff away. Let me just say that Ty is fast! Tomorrow I will be teaching Ty how to put things in to boxes. Ty knows how to put all his toys away so this should be an easy task. I hope....
Tomorrow is Bible Study in the Morning, Swimming with friends in the Afternoon, and picking up and loading some boxes in a U-haul. Ryan will start that while we are swimming. The big closing day is Thursday! It will be here soon.

Just One Of Those Days!

Ever feel like pulling your hair out? That is how I feel this afternoon. Ty decided to lay in bed and talk and sing for over an hour when he should have been sleeping. In a later post you will see what all a toddler can get in to when you are packing. If you see me with no hair soon you will know what happened...........

We are going to miss this pond when we leave. We walk over to our pond about twice a day. Ty will throw rocks and look at all the fish, turtles, snakes (sometimes in the water), and frogs. We went tonight after dinner. It is a nice walk before bath and bed.
Today was nice because Ryan was home until 11am!! He is in meetings the next days in Salado and today was a Golf Tournament. He invited my dad to play with him this afternoon. They were both worn out when they got home. This morning I was able to make it to the gym and then meet a friend a Starbucks. A very nice morning indeed.
The rest of the week is going to be crazy I have a feeling. We have a lot packed but I still need to finish up our bedroom and Ty's room. I am waiting till the very end for Ty's stuff. We have a u-haul all ready for Wednesday!
I will try my best to post this week but I have a lot that I need to accomplish plus all my Junior League Responsibilities...... Breathe!

New Suit

Check out Ty's new bathing suit. It is a built in life vest. Ty was a little unsure of it when we tried it on him yesterday but he got used to it. I have seen the swim suits at Target before but I finally decided to get one after we went swimming with all of our friends on Wednesday. I love having three Friends that have boys a year older than Ty. They also let me know what they tried and what works.
He still does not like it when we let go but that will come. Ty's friends Keifer and Cinco just graduated to wearing floaties and being ok swimming alone in the water and they are almost 3. Until then we will keep Ty in his new suit.

Enjoying a snack after a nice long swim.

Last night Ryan and I attended a 35th Birthday party for our good friend DJ. Lindsay, DJ's wife was a great host! We had a great night out. I actually saw a lot of people from High School that I had not seen in a while. Supper Club Girl's, minus Christina. I can't wait until our next Supper Club in a week! We took May off because we were all too busy. Lindsay the GREAT host! What a great friend!

Just so you know Ty did great last with his babysitter, Staci. He cried when I left but he cries when I leave him with Ryan and even my parents. Staci said he stopped crying like 2 minutes after I left. I only called once at 8pm and he was in bed! So we both survived. My parents even called me this Morning from Austin to see how Ty did last night.
Today has been a good day. Ryan did not have class today so we ran some errands and packed up our bedroom. Stuff keeps multiplying. I think people are sneaking in and adding boxes and piles! We also went for a nice swim (pictures later) and grilled hamburgers and played outside until bedtime.
Now it is the couch and a movie! Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Crazy Texas Weather

On Wednesday and Thursday night we witnessed some strange weather. Rain and Hail. Thank goodness Ty slept through all of it and we did not loose any of our power like some of our friends.
The following pictures were taken on Thursday night. That lightning was amazing! You never know what to expect when it comes to the weather here.
