First of all I must say "someone is messing with me."
My life is full of BOYZ and BOYZ STUFF.
Connor is having his back to school night, tonight!!
So we are so excited that he got one of the most requested 5th grade teachers, Mrs. K.
She rocks and is a great boy teacher. Our older boyz go to school together so we have know her for awhile. She called us last week to tell us that she is going to be Connor's 5th teacher. Then she tells me that she has been working on her new room and her theme is...........
The San Antonio SPURS (basketball).
I have have come to the conclusion that I am and will always and forever be surrounded by sporting events. Thank goodness that  Nordstroms is very close!!!!
So, we needed a back to school gift for Connor's new teacher. So what did I come up with, this fabulous Spurs wreath....I know way too cute. I figure she can hang it on her door or somewhere in the classroom.

Kinda a blurry picture but I wanted to show you that I added Spurs basketball cards. I'm a little impressed with myself, cuz I was reading onewiredwoman and she had all her teachers gifts ready. So she put the pressure on me to get mine going . I put this together in about an hour. The great this is that we have Spurs season tickets so we are always coming home with stuff so I just had to go to Michaels and get the ribbon....

Not Funny....

My mom ordered this magazine for me, thinking she was being all nice and stuff.
NOT....I opened it up and started to read it and everything in it is for women over the age of 40.
Are you kidding me? I think I need to remind my mom of the year I was born. Surely she has not forgotten, I know she was there. So let me just share what is in this wonderful magazine for women over the age of 40,which does not apply to me. I think this will give us all something to look forward to. The articles are: visible lift for wrinkles, neutrogena anti-wrinkles, Chico's, ROC deep wrinkle treatment, Olay sculpting cream, Aveeno ageless cream,  Garnier anti-puff eye roller, Maybelline age rewind, Shredded Wheat (that's o.k. I like that), GNc fish oil, keeping your boos healthy and lifted (don't have that problem), Botox, Juvederm, and more Botox, Soy Milk, Cymbalta (that one I get cuz I am going to be depressed) menopause, srtivectin neck cream, and I saved the best for last......your sex drive will decrease (WHAT)
So is this suppose to be a good magazine or a magazine that makes you fell like sh##, cuz you are 40?????
Note to my mom: I will not be reading this magazine (EVER) I don't want to know all of this stuff. But if I can find a magazine about GRANDMOTHERS,  know you are getting it.

Hangin' at the Bar

Cousin Brooke turns 13. This is the only way my boyz are going to see the inside of a bar.
Brooke's parents own a steak house and bar called The Stockyard.
They closed it down during the day on Saturday so Brooke could have her 13th birthday party there. It was really a lot of fun and this would be the only time the boyz would be allowed to enter the bar side of it. 
A little pool action...
Doesn't every bar have a limbo contest? I'm sure there are some that do!
Here is Kyle doing the limbo.....
The boyz just hanging out watching the girls dance.
They think they are so cool...

This is what I walked in on last night. Connor was suppose to be putting clothes up, but he decided that having a hanger fight would be more fun. So the second time I go in his room with the camera he and hip hubby are calling it fencing.
Connor said it was just like the olympics (O.K. if you say so)
It really was kinda funny to watch them go at it with the hangers.

So sorry hip hubby but once you break your hanger you're disqualified.
So Connor will end up walking away with the GOLD. Way to go.  Now only if we can convince the Olympics that hanger fencing is a sport, I think you could make the American team.....
(I'll keep my fingers crossed)HA,HA

Just the cutest brace-face ever......

Today was a very big day in our house. Kyle got his 3rd set of braces! Yes, you read that right 3rd set. His 1st set was because he had a very stubborn front tooth that decided that it was never going to come down, so 4 years ago at the age of 9 and still not having a front tooth the dentist went up and surgically pulled it down and the braces were used as an anchor to pull it down. Those were removed after a year and that stubborn tooth started to make its way back up in his mouth and the braces had to go back on to pull it back down. Then the dentist decided he would put a wire on the back of his front teeth to hold it in place. Now that all of that drama is over, he got braces for the right reason today, to have some straight pretty teeth.
Don't  ya just love the look on his face. He was not very happy with me cuz I was taking pictures. Sorry, babe its a mom thing!!! Get use to it..
This is my fav. He is giving me the look of hurry up and take the picture, because you are embarrassing me mom.
I hope you noticed that I changed the color from green to black, that is because Kyle did 1/2 of his bands green and 1/2 of them least he was showing his creative side!!!!

I have some very upsetting news to report.....
It's official, I now am the proud owner of a.....drum roll please.....
I'm not sure when this happened. I have lost my baby. If anyone finds him please let me know. We will be offering a very large reward...
No, really all joking aside. I knew this day was coming and I have been trying to prepare myself for this next stage in Cody's life. My mom always told me "Don't blink your eyes, because they grow up in a minute." I hate to say this, but she was right. I must have blinked somewhere along the way, because he is 12 days away from starting high school. Oh, goodness I'll be right back...hard to type with tears in your eyes.. Seriously, I really am crying. O.K. enough of that for now. I went to my first official parent meeting last night at Cody's new school. It was a meeting for the football parents. Hip Hubby was out of town on business, so it was up to me to get the football information. (funny, I know) So I happily decide that I will jump right in and volunteer. They needed help selling football gear so Michelle and I  decide that we would help SELL!
RIGHT, I ended up buying 1/2 of the items they had to sell. Of course, I blame hip hubby for this. I mean he did send me there to take care of football business... So when all was said and done I ended up with a cute tote bag, 2 baseball hats, 2 shirts for hip hubby,2 coasters, an umbrella (that was free when you join the diamond backers) and 2 beach towels ( The were on sale 2 towels for $5.00. I thought that was a bargain)
So, I have decided that if I am going to have a high schooler, than I better look cute while I support him......
I'm sure as the weeks go on this is going to be the hot topic in our house.
Just a word of advice: Everyone out there in blogger land with little babies that keep you up late at night, the one that you are trying to potty train and even the little ones that are starting school for the first time this year. PLEASE REMEMBER WHAT MY MOTHER TOLD ME, SHE WAS RIGHT. DON'T BLINK.....oh god, here come the big tears, again....

Pancakes? There chocolate!!!!

Oh, my little chef Kyle!
I walked into the kitchen this morning and this is what I saw. At first I thought I saw a very big mess that I was going to have to clean up. But, then when I looked further I saw chocolate chips and I knew everything would be o.k.
The middle hip boy Kyle, loves to cook! 
He got up this morning and started to make 
He did this all by himself. I have to say they were REALLY good! Just the way we like them fluffy and with chocolate.
I give them an A+++++++++
Watch out Rachel Ray, you've got some competition!
The secret ingredient!!
It's all about the fluffy and yummy factor...
Little hip gives his approval....
Did you say short stack or pizza?
 Kyle got out the pizza cutter and cut the pancakes. He said he saw this on a cooking show. Pretty good idea.....

Our family album.
I've been meaning to show off this wonderful album.
We had our family pictures taken earlier this year with relishphotography and we orderedthis awesome book.  The album takes 6- 8 weeks to get it so when I got in
in the mail a few weeks ago, I was so excited.
They take you pictures and they  ingrained them into the pages. 
It is truly a family keepsake.
This is the cover.
Here are a few of  the pages on the inside.
It is so exciting to have this on the coffee table, for all of our friends and family to see.
We just really wanted to show you something that you
could have made and share with your family.
I think these would make some great gifts and Christmas is
is just around the corner.

Of course I could not stop there, when I went to order it they only had 1 basketball necklace you guessed it, I ordered that one, too. I mean after football it's basketball season, right....

My boyz have gone crazy....REAL CRAZy!
Let's back up a bit and let me tell you that these are the 2 hip boyz that freak out over their hair. They can only go to one girl to cut their hair. Now remember that Cody is going to High school and Kyle is  in Middle school, need I say more? Hair is everything and their lives revolve around a good hair cut. Now, Cody has gotten a bad hair cut and he freaked out in the car and wanted me to call the hair place and have the lady fired! I told you boyz are freaks with hair cuts. So today when the boys said they wanted to get clippers and cut their own hair, 
I freaked out!!!!
Being as smart as I am, I had the boyz wait until dad got home so that he could supervise. I'm no dummy, I knew if things went wrong they would need someone to blame and he would be the closest......
But, I was very surprised!!!! They did a great job. The most important thing is that they did not kill each other and they were very happy with the new look.

Just a little side note: Connor was M.I.A. he was
having no part in this!!!

Praying and Playing

Yes, you are see it! Children praying before a meal.
I know this happens on a daily basis and it happens in my home.
But, if you look really close at the picture you notice there are no adults.
It mean that my children did this on their own and had their friends praying, too.
This site brought a tear to my eye. Not because my children were praying but, because
they did this all on their own and did it in front of their friend. WOW.
This just makes me beam inside.
God is good.
God is cool. 
 Even when mom and dad are not looking.
