But as my best friend jokingly said earlier tonight, enough with the excuses. She left me a bossy voicemail that I need to start blogging more than once every 12 years and trust me, my bossy best friend gets what my bossy best friend demands. Her "sassy assertiveness" is just one of the bajillion things I respect about her. Ha! Love ya, Tienna! :)
So here's some of what we've been up to over the last month:
The Hubster had a birthday. Would you just look at all those candles.
|I feel compelled to point out that he is now closer to 40 than he is to 30. Oh, snap!|
|My boys (Little Miss was already in bed, because...wait for it...she was sick.)|
|Mom & Tim|
|OH NO! I ate all of my frosting and it is THE END OF THE WORLD! Must throw a tantrum because I. AM. OUT. OF. FROSTING!!!!|
|Ohhh Yeeeaah! My grandma's a SUCKA!|
|The gift that Harrison picked out for his daddy all on his own. *chuckle*|
|A kid-less birthday dinner celebration with great friends|
In other happenings, we took the kids to NASA. And now every five minutes we hear things like 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9 PAST OFF!!!!!! and I'm gonna take a trip to outer pace today!!! and May I pease ride on a rocket ship? and watch countless videos of shuttle launches on YouTube. :) Love it.
I always have good ideas to go places and run errands "real quick" and I think I'm just a complete idiot sometimes. Because at these ages my kids usually last a max of 5 minutes before I'm ready to run back to the car in tears. I'm really having to adjust to staying at the house and being more idle. I'm not very good at it. But I think I'd rather go insane at home than out in public. Ha!
|Alright, Bubba. Let's cue the meltdowns in 3-2-1...|
|We've watched Toy Story a minimum of 1,365,844 times and Harper made it her mission to destroy any sense of organization or tidiness approximately every 45 seconds.|
We did venture out with friends for a couple of play dates. Kemah was a hit with the kids.
|Harrison and Brody|
|Riding the choo-choo train|
Then there was the day I was fed up with Harrison's shaggy hair. He has the most stubborn cowlick ever and I got the sudden impulse to chop it all off.
And so I did.
|After. Meet my BIG boy.|
Another small little detail that went down this month? This girl got married!
|Two of my favorite people|

|Harrison was a "free-spirited" ring bearer and didn't feel like walking with the other 2.|
|But his daddy was able to reign him back in...for about 2 seconds.|
|This picture melts my heart. One day (too soon) he will be walking her down the isle at her own wedding.|
|Saying the I Do's|
|Her new monogram|
Speaking of best friends, Tienna had a birthday this month as well. She has joined me in the 29 club. We may be clinging to our twenties, but hey, we are still in our twenties. (Even though our bodies apparently didn't get the memo and we are both falling apart - ha) It totally sucks that we live so far away and I never get to spend her birthday with her. But we wished her happy birthday sentiments from afar and Harrison asked if he could make her a "concert video," so I obliged. I think a music career is most definitely in his future! Or not. Hey, at least he has the passion. :)
Did I mention that we've been playing? Like, a lot?
|Sometimes we play nicely...|
|And sometimes, not so much...|
|But more often than not, being a fly on the wall is pretty darn priceless.|
