And we're off

Well, tomorrow will be a day of many first! We will leave for Las Vegas in the morning! Sam is going on a training trip so we will tag along. I am really excited. I have never been to Vegas before. Jake is just excited because he gets to ride in a plane for the first time. I have a ton of stuff printed off that we want to do. I kinda wish Sam and I had at least one week child free, but I will take it! Anyway, I better run and finish the packing. Sam is mad because I packed enough clothes for Jake and myself for the full two weeks. He wanted us to pack for one week and we could wash! I informed him that I don't do laundry on vacation! Since we had to pay to check our bag, I was going to take advantage of it!
Pray for us as we travel most of the day tomorrow. We will not fly back until July the 5th. Jake is also excited about seeing the fireworks in Vegas. I am sure they put on one heck of a show!

Friday mumbo jumbo

Sam has a tennis tournament in Little Rock this weekend. I am glad that some of the tennis stuff will be winding down. Between tennis and tball, I thought I was going insane! The storms that tore through Arkansas today delayed a lot of the playing this afternoon. I am not sure what he is up too. I know he better not be hanging out with friends that we never get to see anymore with out me! No there wasn't a tiny bit of bitterness in that statement was there! HA

I have started packing for our Vegas trip. Yes, I know that we don't leave until Sunday the 21st. I am just to excited not to do something. I have rounded up all the little things that we will need and have them ready. I am not one to wait and just chunk a bunch of stuff in at the last minute. I really hope TSA doesn't destroy all my makeup and stuff this time. I had to replace a lot of stuff when I got back from California a few years ago.

I will leave you with a funny pic of my long haired cutie! He refuses to cut his hair. And ya know what, I like it that way! OK never mind, blogger wont let me upload. Maybe they dont think he is as cute as I do!

Saturday rambling

We had a good day today! Jake slept until 9:30. I cant remember the last time that he slept that late. We have decided to redo our bathroom. YIKES! I don't think anything major has been done in there since my mom bought the house 20 years ago. Wish us luck.We spent the better part of the morning out looking for things with that. I found a bathroom cabinet that I love. It sits off the floor on pretty claw feet. Sam said he didnt like it because it would trap dirt underneath. I looked at him "and who is the one that cleans the house anyway!"
We met up at Chili's for lunch. I was really disappointed in them today. Our service stunk big time and some things have really changed on the menu. Well, at least on what I ordered! It took us well over an hour and they weren't even busy at all.

On a good note. I got an order in today for an appliqued shirt for a little boys 2nd birthday. I am making the 2 out of cars fabric and putting the checkered flags on back with his initials. I hope it turns out like I am seeing it. I will post pics Monday!
Have a blessed Sunday,

Whew! School is OVER! I packed all my stuff and and now am going through it again. I am going to repack what I want to keep and take stuff back up to Trinity that they can use. I did cry a little the last two days of school. I am going to miss some of my parents and kids that I became really close with.

I am entering stay at home mom mode really easily. I have had two extra kiddos around this week so it hasn't really hit yet. I am really wanting to work on my house as soon as their momma gets done with her school year. I cant imagine having three all day and trying to keep an orderly house. Sorry Peri, it doesn't look good for you! HA! Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that I am still here. I know I haven't posted in a LONG time. I am heading to bed so I can chase after three kiddos again tomorrow!
