To The Moon And Back....

Loves my two sweet little boys so, so very much, more than I can ever express in words and am so beyond blessed to be able to call them mine. And even more blessed that they love me back and are so, so sweet and good to me. Love you both...to the moon and back.

Santa Success!

This year's annual visit to go see Santa was another success and both Hudson and Landon did SO well!! We had initially planned to go to Allen again to see the jolly ole' fellow, but decided to skip the LONG drive and meet him at the Uptown Village shopping center in Cedar Hill instead. I was truly quite reluctant at first and REALLY wanted to go to Allen, but it was already so late in the day and our original Santa plans weren't likely to come to fruition so I agreed to give the local meet-up a chance instead so the boys wouldn't have to endure such a long drive to and from Allen and plus, it would have really messed with Landon's lunch time and nap times too since it would take up so much time. 

Amazingly, I was really impressed with NO wait and a super jolly and SOCIAL Santa that was ready to give the boys full-attention since there wasn't a million other screaming kiddos waiting in line. Neither boys cried or acted scared, not one bit except I would say that Landon did look quite a bit curious at first when Santa was talking to him, but after a few minutes, he was good to go and just smiled and hammed it up for their photo. SO glad it went well and we had no meltdowns this year! (we've been lucky enough to only have had one really, but last year Hudson was not so happy by the time we got to see Santa, so no wait was even a bigger bonus this year!)

Here they are with Santa.......

Counting With Hudson

Hudson randomly was counting to himself today and I couldn't help myself but to chuckle just a tad little bit when this is what I heard....

"One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, thirteen, thirteen."


Gotta work on that, ha!

Birthday Cupcakes - YUM!

Hudson's first birthday celebration cupcakes for 'school' or MDO rather. I decided that I would make a sweet treat for him and his classmates to celebrate his birthday tomorrow during snack time. Chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and cute little toppers in Hudson's two favorite colors, green and orange! Can't believe our little boy will be four this Sunday!!!

Your Wish Is My Command

Our little Hudson turns FOUR years old this upcoming Sunday and our little monster decided this year that he wanted a spooky Halloween theme for his birthday party and seeing that his birthday IS so close to one of my favorite holidays from my childhood, I couldn't help but say of course! 'Your wish is my command!'

SO, we shall be having a spooktacular birthday celebration this weekend filled with creepy treats and ghoulish decor and hopefully lots of fun for everyone, but most especially the birthday boy! 

Here's a little peek of the birthday party invitation I designed for his party. I actually 'consulted' Hudson throughout the design process and this got a definite TWO GHOSTS UP rating from the birthday boy himself. 

I will try to post a picture of the finished product later, but I've just been too busy to snap a pic of them yet. I'm just glad that they got the Hudson stamp of approval!

What WAS I Thinking???

So, I accidentally stumbled upon this photo of myself from elementary school days on Facebook today when it showed up in my news feed because a friend of mine had been tagged in the photo and OMGoodness I about died when I saw myself, LOL! I am the third one from the left with the oh-so lovely denim short overalls and huge permed bouffant, ha! Such a fashion trendsetter I was!!! It looks like I was even sporting a huge handbag way back then too!!! At least I was doing something right, as for the rest of my styling, I am going to go with the excuse that I didn't know better. Yep, that's my story and I am sticking to it!!! WOW!

It's Been A While....

Wow....I've done it again, gone almost TWO entire months without a single post. NOT what I intended for this blog. Feeling pretty sad that I've let it go so long, but I am going to *try* to resuscitate some life back into this sad postless blog and maybe, just maybe even finally start my other blog as well. In the meantime, here's a few pics from recent days.

Boxers or Briefs?

Or maybe boxer briefs! Look at Landon in this adorable outfit that my mother-in-law, Marcia's friend, Linda gave us as a gift for Landon before he was born. He looks SO stinkin' cute in that little tank top and boxer briefs!!! I just love it!

Landon's First "Meal"

Oatmeal that is! And although the first few bites were followed by strange looks, winces and shudders, by day three of trying out his first round of solids, Landon was turning into quite the pro and was slurping up that oatmeal like it was the best thing since sliced bread! It is now day six and today I baked and pureed sweet potatoes for him for the very first time that he will be trying this afternoon. It was so fun and easy to make his food for him and I am so excited about trying out all different kinds of things in the coming weeks. I actually gave him a little taste of the sweet potato right before I nursed him prior to his nap today and he went crazy just eating the little bit that I gave him off of my finger. So, I have a feeling that he is going to LOVE the sweet potatoes too, which makes mama really happy! 

Here are a few pics of him having oatmeal for the first time and shows just how unenthusiastic he was that very first day! He was simply NOT having it to be honest!

Brotherly Love

Just a few pics of Hudson and Landon playing together.....and loving on each other......this is what it means to be brothers. I just love my boys!
