Thoughts for a Tuesday

Our Memorial was busy but such a blast!! Here is a little run down of how it went :0)

Friday: Of course, I went to work and Kobe to school. Afterwards, the fun began.. We rode to South Fork (Old Home Place) where I was raised as a child and had a campfire cookout. We had so much fun. Kobe loves campfires, loves them. It was my aunt Reva's birthday Friday, so it was a celebration for her. We love her so much, she is so wonderful. Most of the family was there. Some were not, but too bad for them, because we had an awesome time.
Saturday: We woke up at 6:oo and headed to load up and have my yard sale. Marlean, my momma, and myself had a yard sale. I had never had one before but it was worth my time. I was just going to take my things (I had spring cleaned couple weeks ago) to the Goodwill, but Roger convinced me to have one. And boy I am glad I did!! I made 200.00!!! Way more than I thought! Kobe stayed the day with a friend, Benjamin, so he probably had more fun. On the way to get him Saturday evening, the sky was so beautiful, as you can see.
Sunday: Chris and Marlean bought her grandmothers land and house and we all rode over to clean up a little. We had a great time just spending time with family. Me, Roger, and the boys (Kobe and Tanner) came home after a couple of hours. The boys played outside and Roger and I worked on the house. Pressured washed, painted shutters, and mowed. Looks like a new place.
Monday: Roger helped a friend, Matt. So Kobe and I thought we would try the yard sale thing again. It was a flop. I think we were there about 2 hours and called it quits. Too hot to set there and make nothing. So, we came home, played in the yard with the slip~n~slide til Daddy got home. We ordered pizza, watched WWE and went to bed. We wore out after the weekend we had.
Hope your Memorial was as blessed as ours! Thanks to the soliders and God Bless their families!

Harley and Baseball!!!

This week has been mostly beautiful. Some rain and thunderstorms. We have been so blessed. Praying for those in Missouri that have had devasting storms, with casulities. Our hearts go out to them.
These are a couple of pictures of this week. Below is Kobe being catcher at his last game. Then, he and Benjamin had a toast to their lost :0)
Roger and I walked down to Chris and Marlean's and visited. He just loves their Harley. It is a very nice motorcycle. So glad Chris was able to get it.
We are getting ready for vacation and we are super excited!! It is going to be so fun. Of course, I will post pictures..
God Bless and have a great day!!

Beautiful Weekend!

Well the week was mostly beautiful and sunny. There were a couple of days that Mr. Sunshine didn’t come out, but more often than not he was out and we loved it. Most of this weekend was sunny and hot. Yesterday afternoon the storms came back around. But not before we got the work outside finished that we wanted. We have been working on our porch for quiet some time now and with all the rain, we can not seem to get it complete. But yesterday we did put a big dent in it; thanks to Chris for helping. :0)
Friday night Roger and I took the boys, Kobe and Tanner, to the drive-in to see Pirates of the Carribean. We had such an awesome time. They are more like brothers than cousins. I am so glad Kobe has Tanner in his life.
Saturday we got up early and went to get breakfast and off to Kobe’s game. Kobe and Tanner both had a game. Kobe’s team won by 2 points. I have the cutest video on my iphone but it wouldn’t transfer over. Oh well. After the game Benjamin came over for the day. He and Kobe had so much fun. They played outside, inside, on the trampoline, then we went to McDonald’s for some good food; or so they said and rented a movie. Kobe was out like a light not long after we got home. Benjamin will definitely have to come and see us again.
Sunday, Roger Kobe and I got up and started the day early. Chris and Roger laid the block on the porches, while I cleaned up most of the messes. It was hard work! It was hot and humid and trying to keep up with Kobe and help out. Shew, I am glad that part is over! Hopefully, we will be done within a few weeks. The landscaping and redoing the outside of the house comes next. I am so excited that things are getting done. I like change every now and then. It wont be a big difference but enough to notice.
We have a busy week ahead as always. Baseball practice, games, and a huge yard sale this weekend. Selling all kinds of stuff. Because in less than 3 weeks we will be on vacation… cant wait.
Have a great week ya’ll and God bless!!

Wonderful Weekend!

We had the most amazing weekend! When I got home Friday my friend Jaime and I went shopping. We went to a few stores, then we met up with Marlean and Amy at the Mexican resturant.
Saturday we went to holler where I was raised and had a cookout/egghunt for the kids. It was so fun. It was so rainy on Easter, we decided to do it this weekend. We left there and Kobe and I went to get a haircut while, Daddy mowed the yard :) Then, we met up with Chris, Marlean, Tanner, Chad, Amy, and Chase to get something to eat and watch Fast Five, which is an awesome movie!
Sunday, was kind of a lazy day. We got up early and went to church. We came home and took a nap. After, the nice, much needed nap, Kobe and I went to grocery. Had a lil house cleaning that needed to be done, then we relaxed and watched WWE Raw all evening!!
Hope everyone has a great week!!
