Measuring Up

Since we happen to have a dog that is categorized as a "big" dog we have to get her things that keep her happy and that she can enjoy. So on one of my many visits to Target I went threw the dog bone isle and found a big bone! I knew this would keep her focused and happy....for at least three days any way....

It is almost as big as Austin so therefore he thinks its for him!

Looking Back

When I have time to myself, sometimes I like to go back through my pictures and go down memory lane. It is a bittersweet feeling. I love seeing how far we have come as a family but it saddens me as well because of the time that has flown by. I picked out some funny and cute pictures that spark up a memory or that just make me smile. It amazes me how quickly time flies and scares me how easily some memories can be forgotten. Luckily by a click of the camera I can grab these moments and hold on to them forever.

Austin had his first photo session at a month old

He is smiling and I am smiling and you can just see the love!

Landon and I in our dating stage playing golf and acting very goofy!

lol It makes me laugh! We were jamming to music and dancing around the house.

Austin was 6 months and his first visit to see his Great-Grandparents

Chandler's 6th Birthday! This was the first time we had Chandler on his actual Birthday.

Great  memories and more to come!

Zoo Trip!

I was able to get with my sister and one of her friends and we all decided that the Zoo would be a good idea since the weather was wonderful! I was looking forward to this trip, not only to spend time with my sister and niece but to meet a new stay at home mommy and her little one :) I believe we walked for four hours straight and with the chasing of children I know for sure I got my workout for the whole week!

Austin was giving kisses to the Giraffes

There is Baby P! She is adorable

At one point we were turned around so Gracie was trying to help us read the map!

It starts early!

Landon and I were watching TV and Austin was entertaining himself so I look over and he has made a straight line with the cars! I thought this was funny because his big brother Chandler plays this way with his cars too. Austin is not even two yet and he lines his cars up and then destroys the line with one swing of his arm just like his big brother plays and his daddy ( Of course Landon wouldn't admit it). Boys build and then destroy! It's start at young age, it's such a boy thing.

Joining Up!

Since I am staying at home with Austin I really want to keep us active. He is not the type of little boy to be stuck in a house all day and I am not the mommy that wants to be stuck in a house all day. So I decided to do some research and look up somethings that could keep Austin and I busy during our weeks together. And I found this! The Greensboro Childern's Playgroup. It is a playgroup of stay at home moms or dads that get together and do fun things with there kids. They send you emails almost every day of activites that are going on around your area. So I can chose if I want to come to an event or not. It sounds fun and I have not yet went to an event but they have been sending me emails. It's a fun way to make memories with your childern and meet new people in the process. I am very excited to start this new adventure with Austin!

Be Mine!

While my little Valentine was at his daycare having a party, I was home baking and decorating my hubby a  Valentine cake. It took a while and I stress when I decorate because I need it to be perfect! I think it turned out good and now I am anxious for Landon to see it!

Although it took you 5 secs to scroll and lool at these pictures it took me 3 hours to make!

Valentines Day!

We celebrated our Valentines this past weekend. I had all of my loves with me so my day was great. I put together two little bags for the boys to open Saturday. Nothing much just something to show them I love them.

Austin's little furry friend

I took Austin to the mall this week and of course once he saw the pet store there was no turning back! He loves puppies. So I picked the cutest one I could find.

On this trip I did learn that Austin is use to big dogs and little dogs might not survive in our house!

Helping Momma in the Kitchen

Austin wanted to help me cook dinner :) So I grabbed the apron and he grabbed two oven mittens!
