My Hero

To start this story off, a few weeks ago I left a pair of tennis shoes outside. Today I decided I had to bring them in and wash them. I throw them in the washing machine and go on my merry way. I hear the washer end, I lift the lid, there are my 2 tennis shoes AND A FROG!!!!!! Yes my friends a Frog. A big one I might add, and I HATE big frogs, YUCK! So, I slam the washer lid down and try to decide what I am going to do. Caroline is napping, so I have to keep my frog hysteria down to a whisper! I call a friend and she laughs, laughs a bit more, and thinks that waiting until Josh gets home is not a bad idea. Of course I agreed with that idea. When he got home I told him what I needed him to do, he laughed, and went to take care of the frog. Another twist to this story, the poor frog was alive. I gave him an old oatmeal container to catch it and set it free, I hid in the pantry while he took care of it! He has been ribbiting at me since the incident. Ha Ha Josh. I want to throw the shoes away, but he said I can't. We will see what happens to them tomorrow, maybe I will "man-up" and deal with them! He was my hero today, there is no way I could have dealt with that frog!

Caroline has slowly been getting into playing pretend. She loves her baby dolls, and she takes superior care of them! Today she has been pretending she is "leaving", which means she goes in the living room and sits in her car. Then she comes back to the kitchen and says "I home, hug" I get a hug and a kiss from her, then she is on her merry way again. It is really, really cute! I love this age, tantrums and all!

Tag, we are it!

Thanks Page Family for tagging us! I am glad it just eight "interesting" things about us.
The Rules:
1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.
2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules. (**if you’re a non-blogger, you can email them!)
4. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

1. When I was five I dreamt of being a butterfly, I thought that if I wrapped myself in a cocoon(a sheet) I would wake up and be a beautiful purple and green butterfly...... Still hasn't happened.

2. Caroline would prefer to write with a pen over any other writing utensil. It is so funny, she makes long scribbles. I offer her a crayon, even a cool crayon or marker, she turns it down and looks for a pen. She must get her love of pens from me! Just wait until I can introduce her to the wonderful world of Sharpies.

3. Josh loves to play the piano and hunt. Interesting mix!

4. I could eat dessert for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

5. Caroline's due date was the day after my birthday, but she had other plans, she came 3 days after my bday!

6. Josh won a coloring contest when he was 7 years old, his mom still has the masterpiece!

7. Years before I met Josh I made a list of the perfect husband, Josh is everything on the list,random things and all.

8. I did my student teaching in Oak Cliff. Do you know where that is???

We tag: Victoria, Sanchez Family,My cousin Sara, Dena I will exclude you at this time because of your sleep deprivation!!!!

First Day!

The first day of Mother's Day Out was great! Caroline only cried a little bit, I think it was only because another kiddo was crying. She seemed happy when I picked her up, she wanted me to come in a play with her. That is a good sign to me! And now she is taking a nice nap. I enjoyed my time, but I did go 30 minutes early to pick her up! And yes her hair does look greasy, she put butter in it during breakfast! Lovely!

Labor Day Weekend

Caroline and Hudson taking a nap. I can't belive how big C is getting!!
Playing the piano and singing with Daddy.

This weekend was full of activities for us here in Landry Land. This is the most important weekend of the year for Josh, opening weekend of dove season. ;)He thinks it is better than Christmas. Funny boy! He hunted with his dad and Cory(brother in-law). Today he is with our old neighbor hunting. Caroline and I met him at his parents house. C was so happy to be at Nini and Papa's house. She was a GREAT traveler this weekend. Saturday the two of us ventured up to see Dena and meet baby Hudson. He is such a little sweetie! C behaved herself and thought she would get a turn holding him. Not this time, but she did take great care of her new baby doll Jane:) I was hoping getting her a little baby doll with some baby supplies of her own would help occupy her time while we visited baby Hudson. It worked, she fed her baby, pushed her in the stroller, changed her diaper, and all in all she was a good little mommy! After a fun day of watching Hudson and talking with his mommy, we headed back to Cleburne. C enjoyed seeing her Auntie and cousin Madison that evening. Caroline and I headed back home yesterday. We are hanging out at home today, because tomorrow is the first day of Mother's Day Out!
