Happy Father's Day

We've had a wonder Father's Day weekend!
We started during the week when hubs got his first Father's Day present a little bit early and he used it to cook us up a phenomenal dinner! Friday night we had ballgames and dinner with my niece and her husband - then came back to the house and had everyone over playing Card Against Humanity until like one in the morning! Needless to say when hubby got up early Saturday morning to go play basketball, the kids and I slept in!!! Emma had a sleepover that night as well, so when all the kids were up I got breakfast going and we just took our time starting the day!! 
Saturday evening we headed out to the circus. This may have been the last time to see these big guys at the show, too since they're leaving the circus family this year.  Enjoying some popcorn!! Today the kids all piled up in our bed bright and early to wish Daddy a Happy Father's Day then we all headed off to church. Afterwards we hit the grocery store to prep for …

I say Yea Yea Yea Yes to V-V-V-V-VBS!

That's what my kids have been singing all week! They love going to VBS and tonight was their program at the church. Tomorrow is their last day to go.
The theme this year was Submerged! We felt like we were walking underwater everywhere we went! The decorations were pretty phenomenal!!  These pictures do absolutely no justice at all to how it all looked and felt! Everything was swinging or moving and there were projections in places...it was so well done! Proud Geddo and Teta! One acting crazy, one with a cookie in her mouth, one not smiling for the camera, me just glad to get a picture with all four of us in it! LOL They've had a great week. They had over 750 children enrolled this week and the Children's Pastor said tonight they have had 69 children come forward to accept Jesus! What a blessing! I love our church and all they do for the children!

Fun in the Sun

So, Thursday we took off on an impromptu overnight trip to the beach! We didn't have a long stay b/c Aaron had a game Friday evening, but it was still a lot of fun and definitely needed!

First thing that always happens in hotel rooms?? Bed jumping! It's a must The first night we spent our time in the hotel pool and spa, walking on the beach a bit and then dinner and back to the hotel pool! I was going to edit the flyaway hair, but thought I'd just let it be instead - see how windy it was! Emma took off with my camera most of the time they were in the pool! The next day we went out for a yummy breakfast and then spent the rest of the day in the sand and the water! We had a blast jumping waves and building sand castles!







So thankful for these memories! Until next time!

Getting into the summer groove...

The kids are starting off summer right - enjoying time with friends and Emma is find her inner baker!!

We are losing Carlton for the summer (sniff sniff), but the rest of the gang is ready for some fun this summer!
Lately when Emma is bored she wants to make something - anything! I am not a baker, so I am sure she gets this from my mother and I'm thankful she gets to spend the time with her to help develop her baker skills! But she found a recipe for a chocolate cake on the back of the Hershey's Cocoa box and made it all herself. I promise you it was the best chocolate cake I've ever had!! We didn't have everything for the icing, so she just sprinkled confectioners sugar on top - it was pretty and yummy! She was so proud of her cake and I was proud of her, too! I mean I did lend a hand starting her up with the mixer, but pretty much this was all her!
We took an impromptu overnight trip to the beach (more on that in another post) and Aaron had his first game after all t…

School's Out For Summer

And as always it's bittersweet for everyone! Aaron survived his first year of school - or rather was it the teachers that survived him?!?! And my big girl is now a 4th grader - holy cow how did that happen? The last day of school the kids played Minute to Win it games. They were hilarious! I've been in years past to watch all of Emma's and since I had to split the time this year I joined Aaron for the games and then went to Emma's class for the after party.

We did have a very foggy start to our Friday morning - frankly it was a small break from all the rain we've been getting here in Houston so I'll take it!
Why yes, my daughter did wear her Minnie Mouse ears to school! Let them be unique!! LOL This pic was in my Timehop from their last day of school last year...well, Aaron's last day of Day Care actually! He's thickened up since then and Emma's hair has really grown out, which she was happy about! I ❤️ Timehop!!
They were all ready for the last day…
