And there off.....

They got up so great this morning, I was proud of them. It was all smooth sailing! of course Charlie Mac thought he was going to school as well! He starts after Labor day. Cole is a BIG junior high boy now, I can't believe it. Carson is a third grader,seems unreal. Before I know it Charlie Mac will start kindergarten, I'm enjoying him at home with me, I don't take it for granted.

It seems crazy that Summer is over around here. I will have to find my new routine and get back on schedule. I'm heading off to the gym to get some running in before Charlie Mac and I go over to my in laws to help them get moved in. We helped yesterday and got so much done. I'm so happy for them and their house is beautiful!

Happy Thursday

New lense I {heart} you....

I'm just thrilled as can be....I have been wanting this bad boy for a while now. I broke down and got the thing. I know it will be used lots.

It takes great sports shots. I'm probably going to wonder why I didn't get this along time ago. Football and basketball here we come!!!!

I was just going to pop in here real quick this morning, we are heading to body sculpting this morning. Have a wonderful Friday.

I will leave you with this picture of this sweet little boy and his little furry friend.

I couldn't resist

Have you ever been somewhere and found something lovely, but had no idea what so ever you were going to do with it? Well, I'm guilty today. I ran into my local flea market and saw this cute antique armorie. Even better, everything in the booth was 1/2 off the price. So, I got her for 70.00 dollars! The whole way home I was like, where in the world am I going to put this little beauty?

For now I have her in the living room. I'm not sure if she will stay there, but I think these can be put anywhere....bathroom to hold towels, dining room to hold china, bedroom to hold clothing or bed linens. Really anywhere. I know it will be a looooooooonnnnngggg time before grand kids are in the pictures, but I would love to be able to hand it down to a grand baby! Oh, good golly I know I'm so ahead of myself!

I have been in need of a gift wrapping space. I thought this would be a great place to organize all of it. The wrapping rolls would fit perfect in the large area, and the ribbon, bags and other things in the drawers.

The little boys love to paint, so I got them a cheap canvas at Michael's the other day and let them paint till their hearts desire!

It kept them entertained for a little bit anyway....Almost why I got dinner done!

Charlie Mac was covered in paint by the time he was done. I had to scrub him good in the tub. It has just been so hot here, we have had to find things to do in the house. I did manage to go though outgrown winter clothes today. I'm not fooling with consignment sales or EBay this season. We have a local shop that does real good. So, I'm letting them do the work!

I' m going to go get the littlest monkey in bed before the big boys come home from church. Have a great evening.

Summer's Almost over...

I know I have been a totally lame blogger this Summer, But these kiddos have kept me on my toes. I LOVE them to pieces, but this Momma is ready to send them on there way to school. They are ready to go back also. I'm sad at the fact that my biggest baby boy will be in the 7th grade, it just doesn't seem possible.

And Mr. Carson...well, he is just Mr. Carson. That boy is a mess!! You never know what is coming out of his mouth. Such a stinker! We have probably done more swimming in our backyard this year,then the first year we got our pool. The boys,Charlie and I have just really enjoyed it this Summer.

We have definitely had some quiet noisy days at home, just hanging doing nothing. Truthfully my boys would rather be home than anywhere, can be a good thing, but bad thing as well!  Little Charlie Mac has been off his little schedule, staying up to late, sleeping in, NO nap, then crashing at 7:00 pm. This is all changing this week for our family.

 We have had several family dinners over the last few weeks. I always love getting together with family. My mother and father in law are building a beautiful house. They are getting ready to move in this next week. They have only been building for a couple of weeks. They must have a wonderful builder!!!! ( You are a wonderful builder Mr. Hubby!) I will share pictures soon on their house.  

Nana and boys before dinner

I have been able to get some things done in the house. More to come on that soon! I have mostly just been taking it easy and playing with the boys. I feel grateful that I can be home with them and just hang out! It just seems like this Summer has flown by. I want them to have memories to take into adulthood. I want them to remember that their Momma was fun and had a good time with them.

So back to the business of  school and all the other things that go along with a new school year. Cole starts basketball and Carson starts football. So, I will be the taxi lady here shortly.

I WILL be back to share more, I promise!!

I hope you have had a wonderful Summer as well! : )
