Sunday morning was hard. Got to bed late plus drank too much and of course my child was up at 7 per usual. But thats okay. We went outside and attempted to clean up the MESS that our backyard was.... GROSS! Anywho.... we took a shower then met my Mom, Mimi & the Register's at Reg Wagon for breakfast. YUMMY! Then we came home and I packed up Gavin and sent him off to Austin with his Nana for the week *WAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH*. I was a big crying baby I tell you what. I just miss him so much :( After Gavin was gone and I finally dried up, Denise & I went over to Kristi's for Shooter's 2nd Birthday Party. That was fun! I really wish Gavin couldve been there to join in the fun but oh well. Next year......

Party Day Saturday

**Pictures above on Slideshow**
Ohhhhhhhh how busy we were on Saturday. First things first....Denise & I got up and went to the mall to have pedicures. Our toes looked fine but trust me - NEVER go there. Unless you want to watch creepy-crawly's walk around the floor. UGH! Then my mom came and we ran to WalMart to pick up last minute items. Finally got home and got decorated then people started showing up :) Gavin's party had probably 30 people there!! It was so much fun. We hit the pinata first (which to be home-made stood up pretty well I thought). Then we had cake & ice cream. Which included about 10 toppings to choose from. Then we did presents! He got so much cool stuff. Big Construction Trucks & Monster Trucks & Lightning McQueen & clothes & blocks & airplanes & a cool bubble lawn mower! So much stuff!!!! Thank you for all that came and for all Gavin's really cool presents!
Then for the adult party - we had probably 30 people come. Lots of GOOD (scratch that) GREAT food (brisket, sausage, chicken, wild hog, pasta salad, potatoe salad, beans, some sour cream dip, appetizers that included guacamole stuffed cherry tomatoes - they were so cute!!). We partied until about midnight I guess and drank over 1/2 of the 10 gallon margarita machine. and I am pretty sure we bought about 150 beers, only 50 were left! I didnt take put like 3 pictures (I know...stupid) but I just didnt think about it.... I was too busy visiting :)

Party Weekend - Friday

The weekend definitely didn't start out as planned! While on our (me & Teresa) way to Bangs to pick up Gavin's cake, I had a wreck :( Right in front of Northwest Elementary there are some apartments and this 18 yr old girl just pulled smack out in front of me. I tried my hardest not to hit her but there was nothing I could do. So I t-boned her and with the looks of it...I am pretty sure I broke her front axle. Everyone was okay... Thank God. And Gavin wasn't with me.... Thank God. But still. I was alot calmer than I ever imagined I would be! This was my first wreck ever. So it was pretty scary. But the police officer was very nice and Ms. 18-yr-old was very apologetic and cried alot so it was hard for me to be angry with her. Anyway, we finally got to Bangs to pick up the cake and it is AWESOME! The bakery did a super job and there were no issues on the way home :) Thank God!

Today is Tuesday. Saturday is in 4 days. That means our parties are in 4 days! I am soooooooooooooo STINKING excited!!!! I can't WAIT to see all the people that I have been missing lately. Friends & Family. I love having get togethers. Of course, they are stressful and I tend to over-stress myself but I still love them. I have something to do everyday this week to finish getting prepared. I am sure I will visit Wal-Mart about 60 times between now and then. We invited about 80 people and I think only 15ish have RSVP'd. I just dont understand why people don't RSVP anymore. Its common courtesy! I know more people will show up than I think will or that have RSVP'd. I just hope we have enough food and beverages and party favors :)
Hope to see yall there :) If you can't make it, check back next week to see pictures.

Baths are sooo cool now....

Gavin has learned to truly love the water. He loves to go swimming and doesn't mind getting his face wet at all anymore. He will even jump to me off the side of the pool and go under a little! So when we don't have time to go to the pool, he makes up for it in the bathtub. His new thing is to lay all the way on his back and let the water cover him. He just laughs! The he turns over and kicks his feet like he's a fish :)

4th of July

We hope everyone had a FUN, SAFE July 4th Holiday!! We didn't do much. Just spent time as a family. Edward & Danny bbq'd and Gavin and I played in the water. It was a very nice, relaxing weekend for us. (I think we have a future photographer on our hands... Gavin took the middle picture.)

Moo Cows

I got to meet Gavin's cows for the first time last weekend. Gavin loves seeing them but not too close. I guess they are just TOO big for him. The first picture is of the baby cow and the next picture is the momma cow. Her name is Cottontail. They are both brown with white tails. (Notice Gavin's name written on her ear tag :)


Lake fun

A few weekends ago, Danny's co-worker Melvin and his wife Linda invited us out to their lakehouse for some food, fun, and bbq. We had so much fun out there!!! Gavin got to take his first boatride! He was sooooo excited!!!! He loved the water splashing up on him and watching people ski and tube. We took 2 boat rides and he slept the whole second trip out.

1 month...

Last Friday, June 27, was my 1 month anniversary at Landmark. So I thought I would let everyone know how its going. I LOVE it. I love the work that I do, it does get repetitive but its rather interesting. I love 97% of all the people I work with... there is a few I could do without but its those grumps/gossips/lazys that make it interesting. Plus the benefits they offer are crazy good. The building is awesome! It was designed with a ski lodge in mind and its gorgeous. We are in the country and up on a hill with land all around us. So we have all kinds of wildlife. There are turkeys that wander around and longhorns in front of our office. And I'm told we see lots of deer in the fall and winter. We even have a deer feeder in the back with a remote control corn shooter-outer-thingy. Anyway, things are going really good!!
