...my muddy, yet happy little boy!

So today, just as I was thinking I didn't have anything to blog about, because all we did today was run errands, & I hadn't really taken any pictures lately & I would probably just ramble on on my blog & maybe have another brain dump session.
 After we got home, I remember he had these new rubber boots.  I figured I'd let him play outside in the mud...he would LOVE it & it wouldn't hurt him...RIGHT?
 This is all it was for a while...just while he warmed up to the mud again.  & every time he was about to start to run thru, he would turn back & look as me, like for permission!  It was like he was saying, "are you SURE this is okay?!"  Such a sweet boy!

 {just so you can see what he looked like BEFORE!}
 & then THIS happened!  He fell straight face-plant style into the mud while running thru.  You could tell right at first that it scared him a little bit, but he immediately got up & just laughed & laughed at himself!  He was just SO happy & that made this Mama happy!

 I was trying so hard to get some pictures...& the crazy kid just tried to hug me & get ME muddy!  He knew EXACTLY what he was trying to do, & when I would run away, that just made him want to get me any more!  Such a sweet & silly boy!

 {I love this one!}
 {He almost got me here!  :P}
Then I made the crazy child come over by the house so I could hose him down!  He wasn't sure about it at first, but then he loved it!  Ha!

 I stripped him down on the back steps & brought him inside to bath that dirty boy!  He loves the bath, so he was just DOUBLE happy today!  =)

 His new thing when he gets out of the bath is to lay down & cover himself up "hide" from me & play "Pook-a-boo"
Tonight, we went & got some Quizno's then did a lil TJ Maxx shopping, like we usually do on Friday nights!  It's a good ritual & routine for the two of us!  :)


Suckers & Sr. Night!

So...last night my little brother had his "Senior Night" baseball game.  It was the last home game for this season.  I hasn't really hit me that he's growing up yet...but it is a bit weird for me because where he is in life right now, I can vividly remember that time in my life.  In like...15 days he will be graduating.  Big sister will probably cry.
 It seems like I go to the bank an awfully lot lately...good thing I know the tellers.  When my "usual" isn't there I get so sad...but anyways I asked for a sucker yesterday for Punkin'.  Anything I thought I would "never" do..."my child doesn't eat candy."  Yeah freakin' RIGHT.  I was feeling nice & he had been extra good all day!
 He LOVED it when I busted it out at the baseball game!  I eventually has to throw it away because it was getting so soggy...blah!
 His new favorite word is SUUK-AH!  Ha!
 Here is G walking out to meet our parents at home plate to give mom a rose & them a letter.
It was beautiful weather, but we peaced out after the first game because I was just getting so worn out chasing Punkin' ALL.OVER. that ball park!  & there were just TOO many people there!

Our Easter!

We got up SUPER early (like 6:30) on Sunday to make it to the 8 o'clock service.  Me & Ryder have never seen that early in the morning together!  :P  Church was amazing as usually & I loved everyone being so thankful & grateful for our Risen Savior.  

We had time after church to come home & let Punkin' take a nap before we headed out to have Easter lunch with the fam!
 The Easter Bunny stopped by & brought Punkin' some new shirts, chalk, magna doodle, a camera like Mama, new toothbrush, & a Veggie Tales movie!  He was most excited about the camera!

 We didn't get any great pictures of the two of us, but that's just how it is in this season of life!  ;)  I had wanted us to wear purple but was afraid I wouldn't be able to find a dress in that color that I liked...but I did!  at the very first store too!  So, then I was on the hunt to find a Punkin' a purple shirt & I finally did!  Our outfits actually both came from the fab TJ Maxx!  (I'm thinking of doing a "Fab Find of the Week" from TJ each week...what do you think?!)
 {this just shows you a little bit about our relationship!}
 We LOVE KeeKee & Pop's new patio!  It is perfect for lil man to get out & run/ride around outside, & us not have to worry about him!

 We even had Uncle G wear purple!  He loves his Uncle G so so SO much!

Then we made our way to Naynee's for some food, fellowship & easter egg hunting!  Last year Punkin' couldn't really even crawl for eggs, but he did put a few in the bucket!  This year was so different & so much more fun!  =)

"KeeKee Bunny" got Punkin' a bucket full of goodies including a new swimsuit & top for this summer with skulls & crossbones on it!  He also got some more bath color changing tablets...we were almost out, & we could NOT have that!  :P  That's the first thing he grabbed out of the basket & just about the only thing he cared about!  He calls them "bleeeeeeeew!"  KeeKee Bunny also got him some candy, which this Easter Bunny didn't do!  :P

The Easter Bunny got me a Rhinestone Starter Kit for my Silhouette!  I can't wait to get started on some new crafts!

{I hope to make something cute like this hat}

The Linda Sue Easter Bunny never fails!  She likes to deliver with designer Easter eggs & they are always just SO CUTE!  Last year their were sports balls & insects!  This year there were animals & emergency vehicles!  TOO cute!  

 He really did do a great job with finding the eggs...I would lead him to them & he would get so excited, pick them up & put them in his bucket!  He didn't really care about what was inside though!  :P

 {He even managed to get two dollars!}

 {he LOVES his "lawn-mo-mo-wer"}
 {this made me get excited for Toad Suck Daze this weekend!}
 {their pretty new horses}

 Poor baby wasn't too sure about all the animals...pigs, goats, cows, horses & chickens!  He would make all their noises though & it was really cute!
We are very blessed to have family just an hour away that we can celebrate such special days with!
