BLUEBONNETS!!! Evan and I soooooo LOVE the BLUEBONNETS :) He loves them because he loves flowers! I think he has a part of my Grandpa in him... he loved to be out side in his garden and such and that is Evans favorite environment :) I just love that it is the Texas state flower and that it is a wildflower and they are so pretty :) I wish they came more often :) The roadside looks so pretty :) Evan and I usually go several times to visit the Bluebonnets but today was our first and the hill we usually go to must have been mowed or something because there were none :( Even this patch was the largest we found and it was slim pickens compared to previous years :( I guess it is our wacky weather lately... I know it is not because of all the other Mothers and myself who let their children pick some :)
Run for the hills :)
He would have picked every last flower if I would have let him :)
Today Bryan and Evan worked a little in the yard- sorry no pict's :) he he And then we had lunch with Uncle John and Aunt Shae for my Birthday :) Salid at Jason's Deli as Game On 3 is on :) Then Bryan surprised us by taking us to the movies :) It was How To Train Your Dragon in 3D. I thought it might be a little old for Evan but he soooooo loved it!!! About half way through the movie he said I want to have this movie at home :) At the end he said can we stay for the next one :) He really got into it :)
My dragon trainer :) he he
Getting his 3D glasses
Getting ready for the movie...
Opps wrong glasses...
When I went to put mine on I was like why are these so small...he he he They were for Evan :) So cute that they had children's size :) Still a little big on him but cute... He really looks like Daddy's twin now :) he he he
Mommy's little shadow :) We had a little fun playing with our shadows today before we stopped by GG's house :) I also just have to share a little Evan moment today :) As he usually has several a day! He really melted my heart today when he held the door and I said go ahead baby and he said NO Mommy...girls go first :) Be still my heart! Could I possible succeed in raising a gentleman??? Time will tell of course but he sure had me today :)
Evan with the girl scouts :) This was his second try at girl scout cookies... his favorite is the Carmel delights :)
So............ I am 35 years old today! And since I love to do Birthday blasts for my family and friends I thought I would share mine as well :) So here is a pictorial overview of the past 35 years :) Sorry the first picture is on twice because I was having a lot of trouble and just decided to leave it :)
My Birth Day :) Here I am with my mom in the hospital. God truly blessed me with amazing parents and family :) I don't think I could ever understand my parents love for me until I became a parent myself :)
I guess the one candle says it all :) It is my first Birthday!
Not sure what was going on with my hair here because I had long hair for quite awhile but not so much here :) When I came across this one it really hit me because it is my 4th birthday and my own little man is about to turn 4 :)
In case you are having trouble spotting me I am the grumpy little girl on the left side by the wall :) It was my 8 th Birthday- yes it was a rollerskating party :) Not sure why I was being a grump-kin :) I guess if Evan decides to be grumpy at his party I will have to remember my very own face :)
Please tell me why I posted this picture! Do you love the hair? Oh ya baby :) This was my 12th Birthday...I had a sleep over at a hotel my family liked to go to a lot- we would do some indoor swimming :)
Yep...it's a little scary :) Right before my sweet 16th Birthday party...Did I really think I was cool :) he he
My 21st Birthday! I moved to Austin when I was 19 :) Some friends and I enjoying a margarita at Baby A's :)
Here is a special Birthday!!! On my 26th Birthday my true love asked me to spend the rest of my life with him! And I said yes!!! We got engaged :)
The big 3-0!!! Was it really 5 years ago already that I turned 30...And I thought 30 was getting old - ha...in 5 more years I will be 40...oh boy-
This isn't my actual Birthday it was Easter the week after my 30th Birthday but I like it! The 2 boys on the trampoline are my cousins and they had me going so high I was screaming! Not sure why I like this picture I guess because I had just turned 30 and felt to big to be on a trampoline but did it anyway and really had a ball with my cousins :) he he
12 days after my 31st Birthday I received the best gift in the world!!! Bryan and God blessed me with my son!!!
So we have come to today!!! My 35 Birthday.....I can hardly believe I am 35....I would not go back- for I am who I am today because of each of the years and experiences in the past :) For I am grateful that God has given me so many blessings! And for the relationships he has put in my life! I have amazing family and friends....
So today after my dear friend nearly killed me in the cycle class :) We enjoyed a lunch at Jason's Deli. These ladies showed me the true meaning of Fellowship today!!! What an amazing gift!!!
After a great lunch I picked up Evan from pre school and he and I had a little Chuck E Cheese party :) Woo hoo...He was so cute- he picked me a flower for my present and sang to me! Oh how I love that little boy :)
I had a yummy dinner with my 2 favorite guys!!! Oh ya.. I got to open my gift that Bryan had for me in the closet for like 2 weeks now :) I am soooooooooo bad with waiting but I did and it was a map thingy...a GPS :) woo hoo!!! He says I won't get lost now ha ha we will see about that but I do think it is pretty cool!!! Oh the places we can go... :)
So we were able to spend some time with Evan's friend Tristan today :) We haven't seen each other in awhile so it was nice to reconnect :) I guess I should re prase that...Evan and Tristan enjoyed playing and Valery and I enjoyed catching up :) But these two little boys were defiantly being boys today! They built with the lincoln logs on the table then put little army men on what they built and then used the Nerf guns to shoot them down! Ya, I didn't think we would be doing this kind of play already but it was all safe and they were having a blast! I guess I just thought army men and shooting at army men would come a little later... but the boys were defiantly into it :)
The army men and ammo have been divided let the building begin...
Peek I see you :)
Standing up his men...
I guess they have to be just right before you shoot them down :) he he
I surrender...I surrender...now drop the guns boys :) he he
Evan standing one of his men back up after shooting him down :)
My name is Cory. I was born and raised in Wisconsin but came to Texas as soon as I could :) he he. I’ve been with my husband Bryan for 13 years and we have been married for 8 years ( in May). I am truly blessed to have been given the gift to stay at home and raise our son, Evan. However, I always say I’m the stay at home mom who doesn’t stay at home…we are always on the go! We also have 3 dogs, 3 fish, and 2 frogs. I love using smiley faces :) sorry if this bothers you- I do it a lot :) I’ve been a television abandoning blog wondering woman for awhile now so I’m excited to put myself out there and share my family with you! I hope you enjoy the ride- we sure do :)
I am so proud to call this man my husband. Bryan is a man with integrity and is very committed to his family. I love watching him be a Daddy to our son. He is insanely dedicated to his work, loves playing computer games, eating sushi, and is an amazing cyclist! We enjoy the good times and are committed to getting through any sped bumps that come along in our marriage. The family we have created is very important to us and we take our vows very seriously- to death do us part right baby :) For his gifts I am eternally grateful!
This is my four year old (in April) son, Evan. He is a very fun loving and spirited boy! He loves nature :) dirt, bugs, flowers, animals, and just being outside. He is truly fearless! He is an amazing eater – loves his fruits and vegetables. He collects stuffed animals, bb’s and many other things :) Evan blesses me every day with his sweet spirit. He is truly my greatest gift!
