Price's Last Day!!

Today was Price's very last day of 2 year old preschool. I was a little emotional about it, especially when his teachers gave me his scrapbook of the year showing how much he had grown and changed and his accomplishments throughout the year. Mrs. Liz & Mrs. Tara were wonderful teachers and Price loved going to see "Miss. Ta-wa & Miss. Wiz" on Wed and Thurs mornings. We are sure going to miss them. I can only hope his teachers next year will be so great!!

This is a terrible pic of Price with his teachers but it's the best I could get this morning!

Since this was our last day free, the mom's decided to do breakfast together to enjoy our last bit of time away from the kiddos. We had a great time and I'm sure we'll be seeing them over the summer for playdates.

We have a busy summer ahead of us, with church camps, sports camp, vacation bible school and our beach trips so I am hoping we get to enjoy this summer a little before August arrives again!!

29 and holding!

My last year in my twenties is ahead of me. My 29th bday was Sunday so next year will be the big 3-0! I can't believe that my life has almost spanned 3 decades.

I have been around to watch Brittany & Justin on the Mickey Mouse Club, I was the biggest fan of NKOTB, I once was in the Alyssa Milano Fan Club, I know who ALF is, Full house used to be my favorite show, I used to see how high I could style my bangs using Rave #4, I remember when you could pay AFTER you pumped, I was around when it was cool to wear a beeper, My first cell phone that was the size of a small child.....the list goes on......

The good news is that my life seems to be getting better with age so I will enjoy my very last year in my twenties and embrace the thirties when they arrive............

My only fear: WRINKLES!!

Mommy's Day

We spent Mother's Day weekend with my Mom in Leesville. The Poultry Festival is always Mother's Day weekend and always occurs right outside her house so we enjoyed all the festivities that came along with that. Price loved the rides and on Friday I took him to pick Strawberries. He had a blast! Only Problem: He only got the biggest, reddest, juiciest, most rotten ones!! :) He likes squeezing while pulling them off the vine, which made for a nice mess. His basket was inedible, but he had fun!! :) {That's what really matters, right?!?}

Josh's family came and joined us on Saturday and P&O had a blast with their cousins.
We had a great weekend with the ones we love!

California Love

One of my dearest friends, Erin, flew all the way from California to spend the day with me last Tuesday. (Okay, that isn't EXACTLY why she flew across country, but I'm sure it made her trip more pleasureable!! :))
She and Kellie (and Wes & Ella) came and spent the entire day with me and the boys. It was so nice to have Erin get to spend some time with us and actually get some time to know our children.
We have all been friends since high school and still get together at least twice a year to catch up. I'm so glad we haven't lost touch over the years. There is nothing like true friends!!

Piece of Cake!!

It took less than 10 minutes for Dr. Bouknight to put Owen's tubes in. REALLY! LESS THEN 10 MINUTES! Piece of cake for mommy, daddy and Owen! He was fine after the procedure and fussed a little when I put him in the car. Otherwise, his normal, happy self!!

The worst part was missing Muffins for Moms at Price's preschool. It's so hard to have 2 children and not being able to be in 2 places at one time. Price's class did a little Mother's Day program that I missed and that made me soooo sad!! But I guess that's life with 2.....

Time flies....

When your having fun?!?! Or when your super busy?!?! Either way......April flew by.....

I can't believe it's been so long since I updated. I have been busy with work and doctors appointments and our usual goings on!

I went to Nashville, Tennessee a couple of weeks ago for work. (For those who don't know, I do have a part time, work from home job.) It was so incredible! They paid for my flight, for me to stay in the Opryland hotel and ALL my meals. It was work but it felt incredibly like a vacay! We only worked 4 hours a day and didn't have to be there until 11am so I slept in every morning, got ready at my leisure, order room service every morning, watched the Today Show instead of Noggin! It was great! But, of course I missed the commotion and was welcomed by it when I arrived home!

Price is doing great. He is starting to do more things every day that amaze me. He now has a vivid imagination and runs thru the house trying to escape the "Monsters" that are lurking everywhere. He also has a new addiction: Toothpaste! We have called poison control twice in the last week because of him eatting tubes of toothpaste. Luckily for us they were both the kid sized, but he ate an entire tube of non-floride toothpaste and then half a tube of the floride kind (I guess he didn't like that one as much!). It has caused us a lot of upset stomaches this week.
When I ask how his stomach feels, he responds: "Like a ladybug!" Not sure what that means but I don't think it's good.....

Owen went to the ENT yesterday and we are getting tubes in his ears this Wed, May 6th. The doctor said she thought this would solve a lot of our sinus problems and I am excited to finally be rid of ear infections!! He is doing very well otherwise......He can cruise on everything and he is trying to walk by himself a little. He'll occasionally let go and try to remain standing but usually ends up loosing his confidence and sitting down. He'll be walking before you know it!

Last night we took Price to see Disney on Ice and HE LOVED EVERY MINUTE! He actually asked to do it again after it was over. Tinkerbell was a little long.....but he endured with no trouble. He loved the Cars! His eyes were huge when they came out! It was so awesome to see his excitement! We are looking forward to going to see Thomas the Train in June!
