Kites and Baseball

What would you do on a sun-shining, slightly breezy day like today?  Reba chose to fly her kite!
It was going wonderfully until she got a little too close to the tree.
No fears, after a little creative thinking by Momma, and a half hour of working, we were able to get it free.

In other news, Dallas had baseball practice this evening.  The coach handed out uniforms, and Dallas couldn't wait to try it on!
Opening Weekend is a little over two weeks away.

Until next time...

Daddy's Little Helper

Since the big kiddos are away for Spring Break, Daddy needed a new helper!  Julianne gladly stepped up to fill the open position.
Well, maybe she took on more of a supervisor role...
Until next time...

7th Birthday Party

What a wonderful day celebrating a special little man!  Thanks to everyone that came and spoiled Dallas with love and gifts.

Dallas could not wait for lunch to finish up and tear into the presents waiting for him in the living room.  Enjoy a few of the pictures I captured from the day.

When trying to decide on a "theme" for the party and what to put on the cake, Dallas stated that he would rather have pie than cake.  He really wanted a raisin pie, but I wasn't confident in making one.  Thankfully, we were at an awesome Amish bakery a few weeks prior that makes the most wonderful raisin pies (according to Dallas and Daddy).  We picked up a pie there and froze it until the party.  I also made a triple berry pie for those that were not interested in the raisin.

Until next time...

Feeder League Tourney (Part 2)

At the beginning of the month, Dallas wrestled in the first round of the Feeder League Tourney.  I had mentioned in my last post about the tourney that the second part was to be later in the week.  It ended up that quite a few boys couldn't be there that night because of another school conflict.  It just so happened that the boy Dallas was to wrestle was a part of that group.  The league decided to just finish up those matches at tonight's meet.

Unfortunately, Dallas lost his match, but he still ended up getting a ribbon for his bracket!
The season is almost over, and then we start baseball!

Until next time...

Happy 7th Birthday, Dallas!

Dallas has been reminding Doug and I for the better part of the last 10 months that he would be "turning 7 soon."  Well, the day finally arrived!

Doug, the girls and I surprised Dallas at school to join him and his friends for lunch.  There was quite a debate among his classmates as to who would sit with us.  Luckily, there was enough room for all the boys in the class at our table.
We are celebrating this weekend with family, so tonight we had a skillet chocolate chip cookie and ice cream in honor of the birthday boy.
I still can't believe that 7 years ago, I became a mom for the first time.  We are so thankful that God has blessed us with such an amazing and talented son.  May the Lord continue to guide you, Dallas, into the loving, smart, and sometime mischievous person He wants you to be.

Until next time...

Julianne was trying to figure out why everyone was laughing...
Apparently, she didn't see anything wrong with her newest body jewelry/accessory piece.

Until next time...

More Fun in the Snow

We've been out of school this week because of the snow.  Dallas and Reba have been taking advantage of the time to play outside in it.  Today, Daddy was able to join, too!

The cats enjoying the sunshine
Julianne took her first solo trips on the sled, and loved it!

I was able to get them to stop long enough to snap a photo of my snow bunnies
Dallas even took a few turns pulling Julianne on the sled
Ice Cube even came out to play!

I think he liked it, too.

Until next time...

Playing with Ice Cube

Reba and Julianne are loving being able to get Ice Cube out of his pen during the day and play with him.  (Dallas loves to play with him too, it just seems I don't have my camera out in the afternoons)

Here is how Julianne likes to make sure Ice Cube gets plenty of exercise
Julianne has even tried to give Ice Cube a bottle (although the bottle is typically empty by the time Sugar gets a hold of it...)

Until next time...

Feeder League Tourney

Today was Day 1 of the Mater Dei Feeder League Tourney.  Pa-paw, Ma-maw, and Aunt Lisa came down after Grandpa's party to join us in cheering on Dallas.

Just a few of the boys warming up before the tourney began.
Dallas wrestled twice this afternoon.
It was quite a long afternoon, and it was nap time for a couple little girls...
The final rounds of the tourney are to wrap up on Tuesday.  I'm not sure if Dallas will wrestle again then, as he lost both of his matches today.

Until next time...
