Outside fun

We are enjoying the nice spring days of Texas before it gets too hot. Abigail likes to help weed, scoop dirt, collect rocks and now today collect pecans. Yesterday she gave Scout some flowers! Which reminds me of a breath we do in yoga for kids: inhale breath in fully, ahhhhh exhale breath out, flower power breath~great for calming down an upset or strssed out kiddo. We haven't had to practice it much, as Abigail is easy going.

No longer the Longhorn Room!

When we bought this house Aidan's room use to be the Longhorn room, yes it had the Longhorn orange on it along with the longhorn steer. Well the steer head is still there but no longer a Longhorn steer, it is just a plain old steer. Ryan painted and redid the wood floors. Now it is a cute bedroom waiting for our new baby boy to arrive!!

YES, we are ready for Aidan's arrival!! His room is complete, all his cute little clothes all put away and hung up, toys organized, diapers and necessity's ready, bottles sanitized, crib and cradle ready for a sleepy little baby boy to sleep in and Mommy so ready to not be pregnant. Yes I know how much of a blessing it is, but at the same time pregnancy is not easy on me, with continued morning sickness, which makes a Mama tired and sometimes cranky. So Aidan, Daddy, Mommy, and sister Abigail are ready and waiting for your precisous arrival into the world. We are looking forward to meeting you very soon and already love you so very much!!

It is a beautiful sunny warm day in Texas, so I said to Abigail let's go outside. She said hat and jacket. Which is great, but she wanted to wear a hat and jacket to go outside and certainly isn't needed at all today. All winter long when it was cold out I couldn't get her to wear a hat and had to struggle to get her in her jacket. Not sure why all the sudden she wanted to wear a hat, but I wasn't going to tell her no, so she picked out her stocking hat and out we went. She sure looks cute!! Though I am sure the neighbors are thinking why is that girl so bundled up? :)

Family Fun Day!

Ryan was home for a couple days, so we took a time out day to play instead of work on house projects! We had a family fun day!! We started out the day going to an antique show in Cat Spring, which I highly recommend. Then we took a little drive, ended up in Columbus ate at Betty's Cafe, very yummy! Love little Mom & Pop cafe's. We stopped in at a friend's baby-shower. It was so much fun watching the mama to be open up baby gifts and spend time with them. Abigail had a great time being the keeper the bears for the shower game. After the shower, we headed to Katy for bowling. Abigail beat me of course she had bumpers, which is what I think is what I need to bowl, as it is definitely not a game I play well, but fun was had by all!
So what will today bring, rest day!! This mama to be is wore out, but feeling very blessed!!

Let's go fly a kite...

It was a nice windy day in Bellville yesterday. Ryan had a great idea to fly a kite, which he doesn't ever remember doing as a kid. I mostly watched on, as it looked to be an exhausting time. I got wore out just watching, have to remember I am in my last month of pregnancy.
Abigail loved it and was able to do it all by herself near the end. We had a lot of fun until muscle man broke the string. $5 for 30 minutes of fun, priceless!!
