Carter's Christmas Program

Last Friday Corey and I went to Carter's first Christmas program. They had it during the school day. Instead of having one big program they had 2 or 3 classes perform at a time. I liked it because we got to see Carter really good. Carter's class only has 14 students. I took the video with my camera instead of the video camera. They looked fine on the camera but they are really dark now that I have them on the computer. I am sorry about that. I hope you like the songs as much as I did.

Another House Picture

Here is a picture of the outside of our house. We haven't gotten out porch or deck added on yet so I haven't taken a whole house shot. We have a black front door and shutters. I really like the outside.

Totally Random Post

Carter is loving Kindergarten. I am so happy. I was a little worried that he wouldn't like school and that he would not want to go. He is jumping out of the van every morning. He is learning so much. Every Tuesday is library day. This is the book Carter came home with yesterday. LOVE IT!

We are slowly but surely getting our new house put together. I am having a hard time deciding what I want to put on the walls. There are so many decisions that need to be made. We bought some wood shelves to put next to our TV. We got them to hold the electronics but I wanted some decorative items on them too. I love crafts and I saw the idea for the square art so I made one for our house.
I really like the "dead flower" arrangement. I am not sure what they are exactly, but the boys love calling them the dead flowers.

We still have pictures to put up on the walls. When I get that done I will take more pictures. At least you got a little peak at our new house.

Where Does the Time Go???

We had some fun this summer and I cannot believe that it is already September (in a few hours). I have been super busy and so I haven't posted anything for quite sometime. I will not go into detail about everything I will just give you the highlights.

We have a splash park in out town now and the boys LOVE it. They could play there for hours. It has been so hot here and this is just what we needed.

I got to spend an entire week with these girls.
And these girls.
And these girls too.
Man I had a great time with the girls at camp. It reminded me so much of the fun times I had at camp as a young woman.

I also went to Utah to visit my family. We got to go to one of my favorite places to eat there. Thanks Grandma!!! I have more pictures of my trip home but I couldn't choose which ones to post. I always love going to visit the family.
But mostly I have been doing this. Yes that is right I have been working a ton.

*we also moved and I hope to take some pictures and post them soon.

Carter's Preschool Graduation

Carter graduated from preschool last Wednesday. He was super excited. He has gone to the same preschool/daycare for the past 4 years. He has done really good there. At the graduation ceremony they had little caps and gowns for each child to wear. The teacher also had a little diploma for each child. Carter was in heaven. He graduated with two of his best friends. Unfortunately, Carter and his best friends will all go to different schools next year. I cannot believe that he is going to be in kindergarten already. Where did the time go??

Carson is saying some super funny things lately. I wanted to post them so I wouldn't forget.

Carson just learned his whole name. He was going around telling everyone his "new" name. At church last week a few ladies were talking about Alice in Wonderland and I guess Carson got confused. He was going around telling everyone his name was Carson Alice. (His middle name is Allen just in case you didn't know.)

When Carson hurts someone's feelings instead of saying sorry he says, "it's ok, I like you hair cut." I'm not sure where this came from, but I think it is super cute.

He loves magic tricks right now. He always has us close our eyes so he can make things disappear and reappear.

If I ask him to go and get me something he always comes back with it hidden. He smiles really big and says, "Mommy I have a prize for you." Then he will give me the item. He is such a sweetheart sometimes.

Every coin he finds is his lucky penny!!!

What I Want To Do Today!

**** Just to update you I have finished all of the things on my list, except I didn't get the valentines in the mail. However, they are ready to be mailed. I am super happy with my results.****

I have had a long to do list for quite sometime now. Today is my day off and I am going to get some of the list checked off. I want to share the list so that I will be more likely to get it done.

1. laundry (impossible to finish, but I can dream right)

2. Go through the boys clothes and get out things that are too small

3. Get the items ready for the church yard sale

4. Plan a YW activity for tonight

5. Make the boys each a St. Patty's day shirt

6. Mail my sister and mom their valentine's day cards (really late, I know)

7. Return the dish that a friend let us barrow (it was full of enchiladas when we got it)

8. Clean the bathroom

Wish me luck! I will let you know how I did tomorrow.

A few of my friends have been doing confession posts lately and so I thought I would join in.

*I hate calling people that I don't know. This includes doctor and dentist offices.

*I have been known to pay people to make calls for me.

*I wouldn't be married to my husband if Alice would not have asked for him the first 2 times I called him.

*I do, however, enjoy calling the help desk at work.

*I recently caused a "scene" about calling said help desk. I said I would never call again. The reason? I am feeling unappreciated.

*My cell phone hardly ever rings.

*The last text message I got was on the 17th.

*I try to call my mom at least once a week.

*It makes my day when my husband calls me at work, even if it is just to ask me to bring home something to eat.

Before I moved to Texas, Corey and I spent hours and hours on the phone. Now our phone conversations are super short and to the point.

*I love to talk on the phone while I am driving. It drives my husband nuts.

So there you have it now you know that I have phone issues. Think what you want, but it helps make me who I am.

Why We Run Out of Toilet Paper!

I have often wondered why we run out of toilet paper so fast. I found out last night. Carson said he had a broken arm and needed a cast. I wonder how many times he has done this before. He did it all by himself. He is super silly.

The Game of Life Twists and Turns

Carter got The Game of Life for Christmas. He loves it. I mean really loves it. He wants to play it every night. It is crazy. I admit that I like the game too. I usually play it with him every night. At first I thought he was to young for it but he really seems to understand how the game works and he is learning so much. Our family loves playing this game and we recommend it to anyone looking for a fun family game.

Just in case you were wondering what we have been up to. Now you know.

Why Do I Blog????

Sometimes I wonder why I blog. I rarely get comments and I just don't think we are very exciting. There I said it now maybe I can get over it.

Christmas Pictures!

Here are the Christmas pictures of the boys. They got them taken at school and I think that they turned out great. We have had them for a couple of weeks but I wanted to make sure my mom got some before I posted them here.

*FYI the pictures were taken by Sam's Studio in San Antonio. We also purchased the copyright so we can use them how we want to.
