a break and a ONE year old!

So... you might have noticed I took a HUGE break from blogging. Not on purpose, but because I have two kids and a full time job. And.. not enough hours in the day! I love my job. I love my kids. I love blogging. But most of the time I fight trying to find a true balance. Hopefully once my ONE year old starts sleeping all night on a regular basis, I will find a balance. In the mean time, blogging had to be put on the back burner.

Oh... and did I mention I have a ONE year old?! I have a ONE and a FOUR year old! Seriously... where does the time go?!


Hopefully I can return a little more often this time... no promises! :) I have alot of catching up to do!

total ramdoms {part 2}

Kason is really into kissing everyone right now. Anytime sissy gets close, she is getting a big wet one!
hadlea is just a little photog these days. she wants to take pics of everyone and everything.
Justin and I were gone for two nights for the Dallas game. When I got back she didn't want to leave my side. We slept like this most of the night!
love them.
my happy OU loving boy!
Kase was NOT into taking a pic. And sissy LOVED making fun of him! Ha!
This might have been like our 2 or 3 time taking K out to eat. The kids just hates people and the car. So it isn't any fun to go out and eat. It isn't fun to go anywhere with him. Ha! But this particular night, he was LOVING everyone! Maybe there is hope...

weekend.

Hadlea always wants to match me... whether it is my clothes, shoes, hair, etc. And although I never thought I would really 'match' her, it happened. And she was HAPPY! ...and so was momma! :-)
my babies after church. she wants snuggles. he wants to get away!
how is he really mine?! man, i just love him!
our princess of our castle!
loves.
This weekend we celebrated my sweet nephew's 12 birthday! I seriously cannot believe he is 12 years old! He was the first boy that ever stole my whole heart! (don't tell Justin. ha!)! He has grown to be the sweetest, most respectful young man. I am just so proud of him! I am still waiting on the approval from him momma for him to move in with us. I sure hope it happens soon! Riley Clay, I love you more than you will ever know! You are just the sweetest thing every, and I cannot wait to see where you are in another 12 years! You will do great things, and I cannot wait to be apart of the rest of your life! 
Hadlea thinks Riley hung the moon. She talks about him more than any other person! He is so sweet to her and Kason! No doubt he will one day be an awesome daddy! 
We love you Riley! We hope you had an awesome birthday!

total randoms...

I think the one thing I miss the most is posting my phone pictures.... because frankly, those are our everyday life! So sorry for the phone dump the next couple of days... but enjoy our everyday crazy life! And in no particular order...

H got new bedding for her birthday! I hated her bedspread that I had previously bought when we first got her a 'big girl bed' so I am having it turned into pillows. Ha! But when I seen this in PBK, I just loved it! And I thought it totally looked like Had! I had seen it in a magazine and here is how it went: 

Me: Had look at this bedspread. Do you like it?
H: You can put whatever you want in there. I am not sleeping in it.
Me: But do you like it? 
H: I. AM. NOT. SLEEPING. ON. IT! But yes, it is pretty!

And guess what... she has never slept on it! So don't let this picture of the first time she laid on it fool you! Ha! :)
My pretty little 4 year old princess. Her only request for the night of her birthday?! A princess mermaid cake. And my friend, Pam, totally killed it!

 Hadlea received her Range Rover from her Gigi and Poppa the day before her birthday since they were in town. And 5 mins after receiving it, she face plants onto the ice and gets a nice fat lip. I was positive when she stood up her teeth were going to be through her lip. But they weren't....
Hadlea's 4th Birthday Princess Party and her sweet friends! Oh...and Princess Belle!


 my sweet little boy... just growing up. *tear*

 daddy took this picture when they were out playing in the snow one day. he was super proud of himself!

 I wish we either got feet of snow or nothing! I love when it snows and Justin can stay home!

Our Christmas decorations for the year!

My little lovers just snoozing!

Uncle Alan and K on Thanksgiving!

Poppa got Hadlea a new cat for the farm! She is my future little cat lady!


happy little Buddha!
Our sweet friend Ady had a cheer competition in Tulsa so we went to watch her!
She is awesome!
Our first Santa pic with two kids. 5 seconds later and K was Fa-reak-ing out!
Our boy LOVES the bath!
Hadlea's last day of school before Christmas break. I take two weeks off at the end of the year and was keeping her home all of break! She told me that morning it was pajama day. Since there wasn't a note, I didn't believe her! I got there to drop her off and EVERY kid in the room has pjs on! I felt TERRIBLE for not believing her! I left immediately, drove to WM and got her pjs. When I got back, I found out it WASN'T pj day and no note had went out. The kids decided themselves it was pj day... so every other kid in the class convinced their parents except Hadlea! {and come to find out later, it was Hadlea, Madalyn and Hunter that told all of the kids to wear pjs... if they can convince a class of 13 to wear pjs at 4 and 5, what will they convince kids to do at 13, 16, 18?! SCARY!}

And that night, we surprised Hadlea with a limo ride around town to look at Christmas lights. I thought she would LOVE this because she is always begging to ride in the car with a car seat! And 10 minutes into the ride, she vomits all over the car and we head back home! Better luck next year! Ha! :)

H went for her second teeth cleaning! she was awesome!
random pics I find on my phone from the cutest niece ever!

sick boy. happy girl.

So after 9 months, Kason finally came down with his first sickness for the very first time! :( He ran a 100+ fever for a couple days so I finally took him in. They tested for flu and RSV, both negative. His ears were clear... so just a virus (and probably some teething)! And we are so ready for it to leave! {although it seems a bath always makes things better!}

In the mean time, we have one super happy and full of it baby girl! Her facial expressions will just never get old! love. love. love her to pieces!

THE dallas cowboys

Have you ever had a birthday/christmas where you think it will be your all time favorite... and NO ONE will never be able to top it?! For my 30th Bday, my hubs bought me an LV Neverfull and my brothers and SIL bought me the LV Pochette. They were AWESOME gifts! Who gets LV? And who gets two for one birthday?! Then... for my 31st bday, my brothers and SIL got me an autographed Troy Aikman poster... and I know it is hard for one to believe, but that could totally trump two LVs for me!
But do you know what happens when you put those things together?! LV and Troy Aikman (the Dallas Cowboys)?! You get one AWESOME aunt!
For Christmas this year, my Aunt Becky gave me 2 tickets to the Cowboys vs Eagles game, an LV Bosphore Backpack and a pencil drawling of AT&T Stadium.

JACKPOT!
On Dec 28, Justin and I headed out for a couple days in TX!
We drove to Allen TX to the outlet mall... and I have to say this is when you know Justin and I's relationship is WEIRD! I asked him to go to a football game with me... he says, yes, only if we can go to the Outlet mall! :) (in his defense, he wanted to go to the Oakley store for fishing gear. but the man was asking to go shopping?! no complaints here!)
From there, we drove straight to the stadium to check it out!
That evening, we headed to dinner and then to meet one of the girls I work with for drinks and out to a piano bar. I have worked with Adrena for 5 or 6 years and this is the first time I have ever met her in person! Ha!
On December 29, we got up headed to In N Out for a game day preparation lunch! The game was originally scheduled for 1230, but it ended up being the conference championship so it was moved to 730PM. That gave us most of the day to check out the area and tailgate!
We had a parking pass so we headed to the stadium WELL before it opened. I just couldn't stand it any longer! ha! Once the gates opened, we parked, checked out the stadium, stopped by the gift shop and enjoyed some tailgating
Momma/daughter matching hats! :)

We were 12 rows up on the 40 yard line. Just one of those things you might never experience again!
Jerry's World is just like nothing you have ever seen!

Thanks to Gigi and Poppa for watching our babies... and even dressing them up for the big game!
Home with their new gear!
Thank you so much Aunt Becky! You are just too good to us! The next game I go to, you are going with me! :)
 
And did anyone notice I didn't discuss the outcome of the game... ya, it really isn't important after all! :)
