Before we went to work out on Saturday...well before the kids went to the super fun kid zone at the Y and hubby & I worked out.....we stopped off at the Y's sport fields to see our neighbors. Their oldest and good friend of Campbell's was playing T-Ball. Campbell was so excited to go and she made sure she had the right tools to cheer him on!

Travis liked seeing the action and made sure to tell me that when he was just a "little bit bigger" he was going to play t-ball too.

So while we cheered for Keegan. New dreams were formed. Campbell decided for certain she wants to be a cheerleader and Travis is going to play ball.

Our Saturday, it was a nice family day!

Tomorrow is Resurrection Sunday! By all means the best gift we have been given even before we knew it was ours.

I hope that you'll embrace the moment in between egg hunts, candy munching, cooking, getting ready for the day, dealing with church traffic and sugar highs from little ones. that really being present in what the day is will fill your year with a whole new meaning....we haven been gift such a precious gift.

Happy Early Resurrection Sunday!

Well it's a request....

The Governor of Texas has issued a call to the people...


So it is nice to know that there are still those in the government that will turn to prayer and ask his/her constituents to follow suit....even if it's for rain.

Move over Chocolate Bunny!

This is the first time I have ever seen this.
I must say that I LOVE it!
With all the commercialism of the holiday this really does make a statement.
However, eating a chocolate bunny does seem a bit more appealing than eating the cross.

But in all seriousness, it is kinda cool to see.....what a statement in the chocolate world in my eyes!

Highly Recommend!

I highly recommend this movie. I might be doing it backwards but I am going to now read the book.

Like Dandelion Dust.

Have you ever felt out of sorts?
Just plain out of whack?
Not all there?
Like part of you is fading?
As if you are weighted down?
Treading....treading water?
wading...wading in quick sand?
Seeing your reflection and wonder who is this?
Driving and wondering if you should just keep going?
Stopping and not able to take a breath?
Heart racing and you haven't even moved out of bed yet?
Running and running and moving no where?
In a daze?
Rut of all ruts?
listening to people talk to you but you cant concentrate on what they are saying only that they are talking way too much?
Asking yourself why must I?
Telling yourself it'll get better tomorrow?
Laughing inside but it won't come out...because there really is no reason to laugh.
Like you just can't take another "today"?
Wondered if their "life" is anything like yours or lack there of?
As if you've been led to the water but can't drink it?
Have you ever felt out of sorts? I mean really out of sorts where you are just disconnected or disconnecting?

That's how I feel. Disconnected.

I know. I know. Nothing is as bad as it could be.

However right now my "bad" just seems to have me all out of whack. a rut of ruts.

Truly, if I was a power cord....I might just have a surge.

This is my disconnect.....Maybe I'll be reset tomorrow.

Campbell Cares

Campbell was a premature baby but I know several other mommies that have had very very premature babies. Some with not so happy endings. So I decided that Campbell and I would always walk in the March of Dimes walk. This year we will walk in April. Travis might even come too.

Yes, I know they don't do any of the walking at this age but I want them to learn to be involved in the community and to give back.

So if you'd like to join my team or contribute to my goal please know that I welcome any new team members and all donations sizes.

Thank you from our family.

So the tonsils and adenoids removal for Campbell will be postponed from this Thursday to summer break. Kinda of sighing with relief over here for so many reasons.

1. she wont have the surgery....wasn't really ready for the "going under" and all the stress that goes with that.
2. The bank account was not quite ready for the hit was going to take.
3. She was much happier not to miss two days of school prior to spring break. (She had a MAJOR melt down when she found out she was going to miss two days of school....who's kid is she??? j/k!)

What am I sad about...
1. This means Nana isn't coming today!!!

BUT instead....she'll come in about a week and a half. So that's still cool.

my little

My little guy like cars. No he loves cars. I think the only, scratch that. the ONLY thing he likes better than cars would be trains. Yes he does love trains.

So there was a car show in town...just down the street. It was suppose to happen on Saturday and the whole family was set to go. However, the weather put a damper on the show. The show was postponed til Sunday. Which meant that daddy would have to miss it because his business trip came first.

So after Sunday School we headed home, picked up some kolaches and rolled in to say goodbye to daddy. Than the kids and I headed out to the car show.

This car show was cool. Live bands, pony rides (our kids first), rock walls, jumpy houses, etc. They called it a spring fling and car show. The best part was it was all free minus the eats if you wanted to eat.

There were SO many cars. Knowing that we would not be able two walk the aisle and aisle of cars we cruised two aisles. The kids loved it but one little little boy LOVED it. I really think his love of cars grew that day.

I kept telling him that Papa would LOVE the show too. So mental note to self is to find out when this really cool show is booked for next spring and get my dad here NO MATTER WHAT!! Did you hear that Papa...NO MATTER WHAT!!! Next year Travis will be able to walk more aisles and you'll love holding his hand and seeing the smiles and excitement on his face.

What a beautiful day. Sissy was a great sport and seemed to know that this was really special for brother bear. The only thing that was missing was daddy. What would have made it perfect would have been if Papa and Nana would have been in town.

My City Slickers in a Rodeo World.

So it's Rodeo time! While we have yet to make it to the real rodeo downtown, we still get to have some rodeo fun at preschool. However, pretty sure my two looked like city slickers in the crowd of hats, boots, Bandana's, etc. But I loved the little cowboy and cowgirl shirts I got them.

My friend Kim makes them and if you are on facebook you can order just about
anything from her. You can find her here.

Campbell's class had more rodeo activities than the younger peeps ie, her brother.
It was fun to watch her play in the activity centers and see the fun of the day.

The chuck wagon was a hit...especially the drinky drink.

This year we will make it down to the rodeo. We have decided that we are old enough to handle some of the activities. I am so excited to go to the petting zoo and the midway...probably more than my kids at this point...glad we decided that "we're old enough."

So where ever you are...enjoy your rodeo!

Seriously folks

I think sometimes it's too easy to get all caught up in the seriousness of life.

Let us remember it's the simple things in life that truly make us giggle.

If only us as adults could be little for at least an hour each day....pretty sure it would help make the world a place full of giggles.

Enjoy your weekend!

My sweet valentine...

My sweet little valentine and what is that that has landed on your head?
Why it's a bow that has gone all wrong. Terribly wrong.
Looked great when bought and first applied this morning but by take off to school it was
a little off. Obviously a lot off.
It really looks like something just up and landed on my sweet valentine's head.

But no matter what....You look fabulous my sweet valentine!

You were so excited for your valentine day at school. Now you are upstairs feeling oh so lousy. I sure hope you are back to your happy healthy self tomorrow.
XO!!! Mama Bunny

Ice Ice baby!

So last week (Friday) we were suppose to get SNOW! That's a big deal around here.

We were very careful not to tell the kids that SNOW was all the rage. We dropped here and there that it might be "cold enough to snow" but that we'd have "wait and see."

Sure as cotton can be candy, it did not SNOW!

But it was terribly terribly terribly cold for us down here in the humid yucky weather capital of the world. There were no tears over the no SNOW which I was grateful for. SO the plan not to tell them worked.

What we did endure of hours upon hours of news about how roads were closed and the ice everywhere. Seriously you would have thought our world had come to an end.

Well since we didn't have snow to play in....we found other ways to entertain ourselves.

Travis wanted no part of this because his hands might get wet...he's funny about his little hands.
Maybe he'll be a surgeon...aren't they protective of their hands. Well we will wait and see on that one.

So he amused himself by having a swift bike ride which was just fine by me because we were cooped up all day.
So while many were disappointed that no snow came last week. We are now bracing ourselves for possibly another "ice" day. There are already some ice pellets forming on the roof that Campbell and I spied from her windows as we let some light in after a cold afternoon nap. It is currently 27 degrees outside my home in my neighborhood at 5:38pm. I know, I know. Those of you buried in snow or who are use to these chilly cold winter days are laughing.

Which leads me to my segway into the piece of video that was created last week to make fun of us here in this lovely part of the country. Pretty funny!

Keep warm....this clubhouse is hoping to get its final dweller inside sometime after 8pm...hopefully weather won't keep him stranded in the airport in Charlotte.

This is what I learned this morning. Please wrap this father in your prayers because not only did he lose his wife but now his daughter is held by her and Jesus in Heaven. May the Lord hold this man who has lost so much in His arms and help him through.

Chad Cole said goodbye to his newborn daughter last evening as he held her and sang to her. Heart wrenching. My prayers to this grieving husband and father...

Prayers please

Folks it looks as if someone out there in bloggy world needs your prayers.

What I have read has truly broke my heart. So tragic!

I know some of you might be friends with a man who I believe started a foundation for parents who are now widowed and have a new baby in toe.

Please please spread the word and most importantly pray. I have no connection to this daddy, his wife that has passed and his new baby girl. I just know that God would want me to take a moment to pray!

1/2 and 1/2 mommy.

I am not a girl mama and not a boy mama. I am 1/2 and 1/2. I have one of each so there are days when it seems all girly and frilly around here and then others that are all cars, trains, trucks and much more. I wouldn't have it any other way. I am really happy to be 1/2 and 1/2!!!

Here's a view at what I got to put together just yesterday. By the way....I think I should get a special degree for being able to attach these tiny tiny stickers....Thanks McDonald's.
