Great Weekend!!

We had such a wonderful weekend. Friday evening we just sat at home and relaxed... Early Saturday morning I awoke from a sound sleep and could not go back to sleep. This was at 5:45, dont ask me why, I have no idea? Oh well, I got the house cleaned and the all the laundry done while I was waiting for the boys to get up... When they got up Kobe and I got ready and took the long drive to Lexington to see my Momma. She was in very good spirits. Love and miss her so much. When we left there, we went to Wal-Mart, to get a few things. And back home we went. We werent home long until Kobe and Roger left for the round track. They love it!! The boys had their night out and so did Marlean and I :) We went to eat Chinese and watch, Eat Love Pray. Very good movie. We always have so much fun. After the movie I went down to her house to watch another movie until the boys came home. I wasnt there about 30 minutes and Roger called and said we are on our way home. I said oh ok. Kobe said when they got there that he was just wanting his Mommy!! How sweet was that. Still needs his Momma :) Roger said while they were there the owner of the track was directing traffic and was hit by a woman. This morning, I found out that poor man did not make it. Please pray for his family.
Yesterday, we got up and I cooked breakfast at the break of day. Boys got up and went outside so I had the television to myself, always a good thing. About 1:30 I got ready and went to my cousins wedding shower. We had a great time. Below are some pictures of my sweet family. Love them so much. Dont get to see them as much because they live a while away, but I still love them. Then, I came home and went down to Chris and Marlean's for our weekend cookout. It is so nice spending time with family...
Kobe had his first lil sheet of homework :)

Family Date Night!!!

Tuesday evening was my mother's birthday.... so I had planned for Kobe and I to ride over to see her. On my way home Roger had texted me and said, "Honey if you will wait on me I will ride over with you and Bub and we get have a family date night." So of course my response was, "I sure will honey." So when he got home we were waiting on him. Kobe had made my mom the cutest birthday card to give her. We left the house and were going to go to Johnny Carinos, our favorite, but it was crowded, so we stopped at the Chinese resturant. It was good, and our time together was wonderful!!
Last night when I got home I had to run to the grocery for a few items we needed... When I got back Roger and Kobe were down at the ball court (Chris and Marlean's). I walked down and stayed for a while. The boys all played ball until dark. I love living by such great family, friends, brother, and sisters. I am truly blessed.
Have a great day and God bless!!

Just a lil family fun!!!

This weekend was so busy, but so fun!! We had visitors left and right and loved it! Friday night after we got home, Tanner and Colby Lee, and my good friend Jaime and her boys Weston and Wayland came over to visit. We had pizza, the boys played, it was a large time. They left about bed time, so we just relaxed on the couch the rest of the evening. We were tired, well Kobe was. He played his lil heart out. Loves playing (since he doesnt have any brothers or sisters).
Saturday we got up, went and got breakfast and headed to my company picnic. It was hot and humid but fun. Roger and I played cornhole (and won!!) and Kobe played on the inflatables. We ate, visited, and played. It was a great time. We left there and went to visit my momma. Which Saturday was a bad day for her. But felt better as we were leaving.
Sunday, we got up and Roger went to town to get some tools from Lowes and he brought back breakfast for us :) So sweet. A while back we bought a car vac, but it needed a bucket for it. So while he was at Lowes, Roger brought me a bucket and armor all. So, after breakfast we cleaned our cars. Well, I cleaned both of them, but he and Kobe kept me company. Which I loved. Later that afternoon my good friend Nikki and her lil girl Olivia came over to visit. They were there about 30 minutes and I looked up and there was Becky, Haleigh, and Jarrod!! So we all just had a great time!! I just love it when family and friends come to visit. We live so far out that we dont get many visitors :) So we just love it when we do.
Hope everyone has a great day... God Bless!!

Ok, Kobe's new thing is baseball. All he wants to do is catch and throw the ball. So every evening for about an hour we play catch. He is getting so good at it. I am glad because I would like for him to play some sort of sport. It wears me out but it is good excerise, and we all need excerise. So I just enjoy every moment I can.
This morning as I dropped him off at school. When he kissed me, he looked at me and said, "I miss you so much when I am school Mommy." Just tears at my heart strings. I know that it wont be this way for long, so I live it up while I can.
God Bless and have a great day!!

Wonderful Weekend!!!

This was an awesome weekend. They always are!! Friday night I got off work and stopped at daycare to get Kobe and we went home. Roger and Kobe played baseball (he loves it) while I went to the grocery… Then we just hung out and watched tv all night. Saturday, I got up early to go see my mom. She is actually doing very good. So proud of her. Love her so much…. Then, after visiting with her I did a lil shopping. I went to Hamburg and went to a few stores. Found some really good deals on what I got… which is always a good thing. When I got home Saturday, Roger, Kobe, and I went to the lil Country store down the road and ate lunch. They have the best cheeseburgers…. After lunch we decided we would go to Hoedown Island at Natural Bridge. I always went as a child, but I hadn’t been in years. For the last month or so I have wanting to go. I finally talked Roger and Kobe into taking me.. Well we were there about 30 minutes and it began pouring the rain. So we had to cut our time short, but we did have fun while we were there….
Sunday was a great day… Early Sunday morning Chris called to ask if Kobe wanted Tanner’s bedroom stuff. I was thinking just the decorations. It is WWE and Tanner is going with UK. So I said, “Yea”. Chris said, “Bring the truck and come on.” I said, “Truck?” It was the whole bedroom suite!!! Marlean, Tanner, and Chris are so wonderful to us… We are so close to them it is unbelievable. We love them so much. Kobe was so excited once we got everything set up. I switched his John Deere stuff in the playroom. He even slept in his bedroom last night. He never sleeps in his room but last night he went in to his room turned off the light, pulled the door to, and went to sleep!! Of course in the middle of the night he came to lay with Mommy, and that is just fine. But he is getting to be such a big boy and so independent. I am just hoping that he and I will always be close. I am sure we will.
Hope everyone has a great day!! God Bless!

Busy, busy week!!

I am so sorry. This week, well this month I should say has been so busy. Kobe started school this week, my mom, and work, there is just not enough time. Today was the 4th day of school for Kobe and I have cried everyday.... as soon as I let him out of the truck and go around the school the waterworks start. I cant help it. My lil baby is a lil man now... I dont cry in front of him because he LOVES school and I dont want to discourage that at all. I want him to do well. But beings today is Friday I dont think I have any major plans for this weekend. We will get up in the morning and go see my momma. Roger and I may do a lil shopping for few things.. Maybe if Kobe needs a few more things for school; just things like that. Then, we will do a lil yard work later in the day. Sunday, I am hoping just to go to church and be lazy. I love a lazy Sunday. Actually I love a rainy Sunday, that is when you just hang out in your pjs and watch movies all day. I love it.
I sure hope everyone has a great weekend. Love and God Bless!!

First day of school :)

Today was Kobe's first day of Kindergarten. He was so excited to see his friends again. Going to Preschool really helped him. There were several children scared and crying; but not my big boy. He looked for his name and sat down and began coloring his paper. I said, "Mommy loves you and I will be here when you get out of school to get you." He said, "Ok Mommy, I am going to get me some cereal and I will be waiting for you." So precious.... I love him so much. I keep thinking of where the time has gone. My lil baby is a big boy now...I just want him to always do the right thing (in his heart what he knows is right) and always be kind to others. I know he will do great....
Have a great day and God bless!!

Wonderful Weekend!!

The Good Ol' Boys!!!

This weekend was just like any other, busy but alot of fun :) Friday night I took Shae home :( We miss her when she is gone. Love her so much. But she wanted to go home... Roger, Kobe, and I just hung around the house. Didnt do much. Saturday, Kobe and I got up early and went to see my momma. She looks so good. So proud of her for toughing it out. I know it has been rough. Then, we headed to Houston's 8th birthday party. All the kids had so much fun. It was a great party. We came home to no electric. I guess someone had hit a pole. It wasnt that bad with no lights, but the air was what was bad! We get spoiled I think, even with that being said I wanted my air. It came on after about 4-5 hours. (just in time to go to bed)

Sunday, Roger had a lil side job, so Kobe and I stayed around the house. I cleaned, did laundry, mowed, while he played :)

Have a great day everyone.

Just a lil behind....

Sorry I have not posted anything since this weekend. This week has been a whirlwind of good news, bad news, accidents, and so on and so fourth. I have been so busy taking care of things I havent had a chance to post and I am sorry. My mother got into serious trouble at work... pretty bad. So please keep her in your prayers. I went to see her Monday evening and she is doing ok. Tuesday morning, on my way to work Roger called me. Which he usually always does, but it was about 30 mins earlier than he usually does. He said, "Hey babe, Ive got some more good news for ya". Me thinking he got a raise or bonus... No, he was laid off.....But its ok. Dont sweat the small stuff right. So, all of this in my head, I get off work and head home. Pull into the gas station, waiting on a pump, back up and hit someone square on the bumper. The guy was really nice though. Didnt hurt either car. So yeah it has been a rough week.
My cousin is staying with us this week. Shae is such a sweetie... Love her so much. Without her this week, I would have been a mess. So thank you Shae Shae...
Tonight is Kobe's open house for Kindergarten... so sad but exciting.. My baby boy is growing up :( He is excited. I will take plenty of pictures from tonight and Tuesday is his first day, so there will plenty on that day as well.

What a Weekend!!

This was a great weekend. As always we had so much fun. Camping and spending time with our family... There were some bad news throughout the weekend. I can only say, please keep our family in your prayers. I will tell about it later.
But as you will notice we are a very close family. This awful thing that has happened has brought my family so close. Even my sister and I spent several days together this weekend. So that has to be good, right....

my motto

Life is not about having what you want, but wanting what you have.
