Cheyenne's Birthday Bash

Cheyenne's Birthday was filled with activities. It started out by bringing her to some Annabella homes and taking some pictures of her and it turned out we also took some family pictures which were way over due. Then, the day before her birthday we went shopping and bought her a lot of new clothes and ordered her a great cake. For her cake we decided to take a picture of her on our 4-wheeler and make her a picture cake and let me tell you it came out awesome! Then, the day of her birthday we took her and lil buck to the movies to see The Lion King in 3D. Lil buck absolutely loved it but Cheyenne was a little young so it was hard to keep her from playing and sitting still. Then after the movie we picked up the cake and hubby fried us some french fries and grouper which really made the whole event really special.

The weekend after her birthday we went visit Maw and Maw also had lots of special surprises for her but what really made everything special was when we went visit Uncle Matt, Aunt Kayla, and cousin Tater man. See Uncle Matt's birthday is the day after Cheyenne's so he was sweet enough to share his birthday party with CC. They had many presents for her and had even bought her a special cake with a little flower on it. When we went she tore into the cake but it was kind of late so there was a lot left so instead of packing it and bringing it home we smashed it into Uncle Matt's face for his special gift. He was not too happy with us at first but realized we did it cause we loved him and he graciously forgave us! All in all she had a very memorable birthday.

I will never forget how my beautiful baby girl looked when she was born. I'll never forget how small she was or how she smelled. She was absolutely perfect. She has grown a lot and it is hard for me because everything is happening so fast but I could never love her more than I do now. When I found out I was pregnant for her I remember not planning for her but she is one of the best things that have ever happened to me. Me and hubby love her very much and we look forward to a hundred birthdays as long as the Lord is willing.

Up coming Events

I am so excited for this month. There are so many things that are going on. Cheyenne will be a year old this sunday...yes mam I did say a year old and I really can't be more excited! Also, my sisters birthday is this month along with my BIL's. Hubby and I are also celebrating our 3rd year anniversary by taking the kids on a small camping trip but I will blog about details with that later. On Sunday hubby and I are going to take the kids to see the Lion King and I am super excited because growing up this was my favorite movie for like forever. Shes going to get to wear her birthday princess hat and 1st birthday outfit allllll day long.

These last few weeks have been amazing with spending catch up time with all of the family and we even got to sale my piece of junk truck and bought a great 2005 chevy for hubby to drive back and forth from offshore. We finally are able to drive a nice new vehicle without ever worrying I am going to break down. It was long over due and I feel like we are finally moving up in the world. There are lots of events coming up that I can't wait to blog about and sorry there are no pictures but I promise there are many to come.

As soon as it starts to cool off we are going to take the kids hunting and hopefully we can get some fresh new meat in the freezer. When hubby comes home he will be talking to a local market and maybe get a second job to help out with old debt. I am also trying incredibly hard to hunt down all information I can so I can start working as a medical transcriptionist but I have to find the right school and maybe talk to the mayor about a grant. We are crazy busy but if we can get all this up and going we may invest in a computer and the internet and hopefully I will be able to post more pics for you guys and keep you posted way more often.

I hope everyone has a great week!!

Bout Time

I know I know it has been an incredibly long time since I have actually even tried to post anything. A lot of things have happened in my life to where I was traumatized for a little while but my family is all back together and finally moving forward. Since it has been so long since I have posted this one will be kind of long and I will try to sum up all of things that have been going on.... Here is goes...

Back in July my son turned two years old. I am a homemaker and I stay at home with my kids and up until his 2nd birthday I really didn't have like a set schedule where we would do some sort of schooling. But my nephew is in a daycare and even though he is almost a year older than my son I can tell that the progress and learning skills are developing much faster than my little boy so when I realized this I started having school with him everyday. Now, he is starting to talk a lot more and now he is learning his animals and colors and numbers. One of the best things about it is that he loves to read.

Well, this august we decided to tag along with my mother and father-n-law to gulf shores Alabama. The whole family went on a little vacation and we had such an awesome time. My little girl and boy were both pretty much dreaming about pools, and water, and boats the entire month after we got home. My little boy caught his first fish and I don't think we could have honestly taken enough pictures. My little girl (CC) was about 10 months when we went and she finally started to really get confident and started walking. Once again we couldn't have taken enough pictures.

This month on the 25th of the month CC turns a year old and I really can't be more excited. My kids are young so we don't really throw them big birthday parties or anything but the event is still very special. I would like to get her like this beautiful little girls chandelier and maybe have her daddy and pap make her a hope chest. I am starting to get excited because the 20th of this month is my husbands and I's anniversary. Last year we were going through a lot and so we didn't celebrate it at all. We talked about it and we are going to try to plan a little camping trip for our family. My husband and my beautiful children mean the world to me and I truly can't wait to do something special with them. Not much else exciting has really happened so here are some resent pics of us and some pics from our vacay.

Weekend Recap

This weekend was such a great one! It all started on Friday because my mother-n-law was off so I picked her up early that morning and took off to catch some of the good sales from labor day. Ever since I found out I was having a girl I like to shop the sales and see what I can pick up to add to her room in our house. My family has gotten her so much stuff she really is spoiled and I haven't even had her yet. I was actually tired a lot this day because of all the heat so we went and grabbed some lunch and then we went to pick up potato. My mother-n-law likes to keep her grandkids everyother weekend to spend more time with them and this was potato's weekend and my sister-n-law agreed to let us pick him up early. After we picked him up we headed back to maw's house because she was cooking a big dinner and it was pretty enough outside for us to sit on her patio and let them play in the yard. It was soo nice to see them get to know each other again because it had been so long since they played without being in town.

On saturday morning lil buck and I headed back to pick up maw and potato and take them to the build and grow at lowes. I really hadn't been going because I can't sit on the floor but maw promised she would find me a comfy chair (which she did :). After they built their puppy it was lunch time so we grabbed some food and headed to the park. We were at the park for like 2 hours and there was no other people so we really let the boys run wild. They both loved the swings but it was still hot to slide. Well, they eventually got so tired we had to leave but my son adores the slide so I had to try to get him to slide somehow so I got up there (38 wks preggo) and slid down only once. It actually hurt so I didn't attempt that again. After the park they took a long nap and when they woke up we took pictures of them in their saints outfits and I must say they looked adorable.

On Sunday when we brought potato back my sis-n-law gave me this older labtop that they fixed up for me and now I am able to get on the internet way more often so I can blog and keep you all up to date on us and the babies. I am due in 2 weeks so again if I take a break for a few days it's because I'm off to have my baby girl! Thank all of you for taking time to catch up and stay and follow me! Heres to many more blogs!

Baby Cheyenne

So as all of you know my son just had his first birthday. Now that all of that commotion is over with and we got all of his gifts nice and moved in our new house (o yea we moved from a 2 bed 1 bath and like no yard to a 3 bedroom 2 bath and office that sits on 3 acres). But now that we have everything moved we can concentrate on baby cheyenne. I am super excited for the holidays to come but before I can start any of that planning I must be ready for Cheyenne and having a second child will change our lives completely all over again.

This weekend we will have my baby sprinkle that my lovely sis-n-law is throwing with some of our friends and I am super excited (more details later). My mother-n-law is a fantastic photographer so I knew when she got back from vacation it is time to take my preggo photos. She had many visions so I brought lots of clothes to change into.

My husband is a really big hunter and I knew if I dressed in camo I would make him one happy man. So as I will post some of my better pictures I must dedicate all the ones in camo to my hubby whom I love so much!!

Monkey's First Haircut

Since Monkey was about 7 or 8 months old his hair has seriously started to curl. We talked about getting him a haircut for the longest time because people would mistake our beautiful boy for a pretty little girl (even though he was wearing clothes that did not resemble girls clothes in the least). I really didn't want to cut his hair until he turned at least a year old and when hubby realized I would allow a haircut he demanded he do it himself. This made me very nervous because I cut hubby's hair and his mother cut his hair before me so...he has no experience whatsoever in cutting hair. Well, I just thought to myself that I would tell him that he could do it and then when he was here we would just let maw do it.

Well, Maw did not really want to do it because he is just a baby and he moves a lot and she would be scared to cut him...but after telling my hubby story she finally gave in. So the very night of monkey's birthday after hubby got off of work they sat him down and Maw cut his hair while hubby tried to hold him still. I did not cry but when everyone saw that I was keeping his curls I got some crazy looks but I did not care. I could tape his first curl in his scrapbook. He really did not move too much but after we were done just looking at my child he looked much older and I knew a part of me had to let it go or I would want to hold onto it forever and never want him to grow up..but they have to and I'm trying to be happy about it.

Thank goodness his hair still curls but she cut enough so that it will hopefully get thicker and grow out faster and room to breathe...another stage in the baby mission conquered!

Buck's Special Day

For Buck Jr's actual birthday my hubby had to work so the next he took off and we decided to take him to Baton Rouge. First we decided to hit the zoo. It was a little hard for hubby because almost every animal we came to he thought the cage was entirely too small. But we got very lucky because I don't know if it was the rainy weather but all the animals were out and willing to play.

I think monkey's favorite was the little aquarium because as soon as we entered it his entire face lit up and he refused to stay inside of his wagon. He loved pointing to all of the fish and watching them swim around. He also really liked the big animals. I don't think he started pointing soo much until this trip to the zoo.

After spending about 3 hours at the zoo hubby and I decided that it was time to eat. We went eat at the Long Horn Steakhouse to try it out for the first time. The lunch menu was great! We even had enough room for dessert..and of course monkey just loved that!

Next we took him to the big Bass Pro Shop. We looked around for a good long time and let him see all the fish and ducks they had in their pond. Of course we were already looking at potential christmas gifts because we already know what auntie is getting we were making more plans. So we picked him out a bass pro shop romper (yes auntie i bought a romper) and some camo short overalls. There were lots of other things we wanted to buy him but we had set out there for only a few things and we had more than reached our limit. So we made our way back home after a long day and ended it with hubby making us awesome sandwiches and we were more than glad to hit the sack early.
