Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.

Fun @ the Pumpjacks game

Alex got to go to his first "real" baseball game this past week. We had free tickets from the Kilgore Chamber. Tripp had plans allready so we grabbed Tonya & Drew and made our way. I would like to tell you that Alex & Drew sat and watched the game but that was not the case. They had a BLAST running up and down the bleachers. We met the Woods family there so they got to play with Elle also. The three of them really had a good time. Derrick, one of the two mascots (don't really understand why they have two) paid the kiddos a visit. At first Alex was a little hesitant but he came around pretty quickly. Judging by how much fun they had there...and add in the amount of fun had at the park afterwards, looks like this will not be our last Pumpjacks game!

Cupcake Cakes are AWESOME!

So a professional I am not...but I did have a really good time making this cupcake cake for my friend Kristie's little girl. I love how the flip flops turned out! One of the little kids even took a nibble out of the bottom of one! So cute! Thank you Kristie for letting me do this for Kynlie! Glad you were happy!

**Aunt Brenda~ hopefully, maybe, one day...I'll be as good as you are! I know what you are thinking ...but quit! Your cakes are AMAZING & NOT beginner AT ALL! Love you and thank you for the great advice!

Bunny Chasing

As we were leaving for school/work today, we noticed two bunnies chomping on some goodies right by our driveway. As is now custom for little Alex, he proceeded to chase them. The first time he chased the bunnies, he chased it all the way around our house, several times getting within about 2 feet! He was so excited! I followed him laughing like a mad woman. Afterwards, I kicked myself for not having my camera. I just know we could have won some funniest video award! Anywho...I just so happened to have my camera in my hand this morning as was able to catch a few pictures. You can't tell how hard Alex is laughing because he is running..but he was laughing HARD! So sweet!

Drew & Alex

These little guys crack me up! They love each other and talk about each other all the time...but something happens when you get them together! For a while, they liked to chew on each other..literally. Now they just like to run from each other. Mostly Alex running from Drew, screaming like a girl, and Drew just wanting to play. Makes for great entertainment! Alex has learned how to say 'proximity' from the ordeal so if there is a silver lining..there you go! It is very comical to watch them together. Once they outgrow the 'watch as I pester the living daylights out of you' stage, they will realize that they are great friends and have been all along!

Alex & his Great Wolf Lodge suite

Alex LOVED his room @ Great Wolf Lodge. It was so precious to watch him 'play' with each of the wolves painted on the wall. He continually said "What's his name?" and wanted each of them to have their own special name. So sweet. He also enjoyed the window in his room. I could sit all day long and watch him enjoy that window! Many games of peek a boo were played that day!
We had a really great time during our stay at Great Wolf. I would love to share the pictures with you....BUT goofy me..I didn't want to hurt our digital camera so I bought a water proof camera from the gift shop. ($19.99 later...definitely recommend purchasing that item before you get there!) Guess what...that's right...not a single picture turned out! Go figure! Broke my little heart! But we did have a great time! Sadly, Tripp got REALLY sick early the next day so we had to leave early. That broke out hearts too! We hated to leave...but mostly we hated Tripp being so sick. For those of you who don't know..I hate to drive in Dallas. Not good at it at all. You add a sick husband in the next seat to the situation...and just gets all kinds of ugly from there! We made it to Tripp's parents house and he was out for the rest of the day. Not exactly the way we all planned on spending the last day of our mini-vacay but it is what it is.
Another funny note...Alex thinks that all people who have a pool have a water park. So sweet!
