Dave & Buster's

Playing horse races with Daddy!

Playing Skee Ball with Mama!
After the initial shock of the lights and noise, little man loved it! We won tons of tickets and he had a blast. We will have to go back when we can spend more time!

Weekend with Daddy Red and Nana!

This weekend we went to visit Daddy Red and Nana!

Little guy loved to look at Daddy Red's fish and even got to help feed them!
It was really neat to see him enjoy the toys that his daddy used to play with!
Throwing leaves in their huge back yard was super fun!

After a long day of playing, he snuggled up in the Daddy chair with his Daddy Red!

Homemade Mama!

This weekend I went fabric shopping {blush} and got some really cute designer fabrics for my store. I also got supplies to make R some soft soled "robeez" style shoes! How cute are they?!

I love being able to make R clothes and such. It is not only easy on the pocket book, but a great sense of pride to look at your son and think, "hey, i made that!" Homemade is always preferred!

Adventures with sidewalk chalk

This week at our Dallas Playgroup we took the kiddos to play in the beautiful outside. Sidewalk chalk made the day perfect and kept those tiny hands busy.
P looked eagerly on

R and J had a blast with the chalk

Hippie E loved the grass

quite the storyteller...

While watching H as his momma had work training, R pulls out one of his favorite books.

I walk up to R turning each page, "reading it," and H laughing hysterically.

They entertain each other pretty well and apparently R is quite the storyteller!

Mr. Fix it

We got these great shelves from Ikea, and little man just had to help Daddy put them up!
He did so good too! He was concentrating really hard and acted like he knew exactly how to do it. Our very one little Mr. Fixit.

MySpace Hair

B and I out of boredom, decided we would flat iron his shaggy do. We laughed and called it "MySpace hair!" LOL. It looked good, but he still needs a hair cut!
