Our Family has a motto--we have been trying to decide on one for about a year now! About two months ago we finally found the perfect one for us--"Work hard so we can play hard" the boys know it--they love it--I love it--Joe loves it--it's an all around hit!
I don't know why we felt like we needed a motto but now that we have one I can honestly say it changes just about everything for us!
And here is proof that I exist and I do work hard---and play hard!
I better put this down
Jimmy--This is my favorite face (pointing to himself WITH sunglasses on)
Joe--I like that face too!
Jimmy--I want this face everyday, not at church, at home, at school.......
Me--nope you can't have sunglasses at school.
Jimmy--If I don't wear these then I'm gonna pick-up wood chips and puttem' in my eyes--what you think? (this said pretty darn sassy)
Me--You can't have sunglasses at school it's against the rules.
Jimmy--Well, then I guess I will have wood chips in my eye! (in the I'm giving you fair warning voice)
Me--Jimmy you need to put socks on with your shoes!
Jimmy--I don't want socks
Me--you need socks, your feet will stink if you don't wear socks.
Jimmy--Well, then I think my socks don't feel good--they need to stay in my dresser and rest--what do you think?
Cupcakes with Jimmy's class--he was so excited!! I know you don't see any other kids-- half were still sleeping from quite time and the others weren't into cupcakes--but as long as Jimmy didn't mind, neither do I!
Can't expect much from a class of 5?!? Love his teacher Miss H she has been so great with Jimmy!
She even bought him a little gift! Hot Pink Hot Wheels--he couldn't ask for anything better!!
Love his so much--there would be pictures of two cutie pies but Chase has been refusing to have his picture taken for a couple of weeks now--he's kinda of in an ornery stage of life right now! Anywho they both looked incredibly handsome for church today.
Had to pick my battles this morning--he insisted on wearing his rain boots.
**small disclaimer...by the time we left for church Jimmy was no longer wearing his tie, his shirt was partially unbuttoned, and his pants were stuffed inside his boots...but at least I captured these handsome shots.
And the stage is set for Jimmy's 5th birthday tomorrow...I can't believe he is that old?!?
You may call me crazy--but I've got another blog--look at it if you want--comment if you want--really doesn't matter, I've just got some stuff on my mind and feel like sharing it. Find it here--you've been warned!
Yes I know he looks more like a scarecrow and less like a furry little critter but shhh don't tell he gets very upset. I guess that is all that matters he believes he looks like little critter so he does.
You would think that he is waiting for me to tell him what's next but since I don't know the song--well now I do, but I didn't teach it to him--he is simply trying to remember. Not his best performance of this song but he is such a show-off in front of the camera he is trying to come up with something crazy to do--you can see it in his eyes!
Over labor day weekend we went on a camping trip--4days! We had an absolute blast and the boys loved it. We have stayed in the trailer several times--but always down in Florida by the beach--this time we went "real" camping. Our site was right on the lake and perfect for just jumping in and swimming! I unfortunately forgot my swimming suit--me of all people :( Campfires, dirt, dutch oven, lakes--perfection!! Absolutely perfect!
In other news--big changes on the horizon for our little family--more details as they become more solid!
Sorry about the camera work--new camera--first time user--actually first time ever using a video camera--hopefully I will get better. And all you Walkers should be so proud--an escort back on to the field by the ref's what a refreshing change for our family!
