Wordful Wednesday

As I've said 547 times this week....Coby is 4! This was the night of his birthday - we had been making cupcakes to share with his daycare friends. Guess what Coby's FAVORITE part was? You got it.....licky the spoon and bowl!
And some may think this picture is silly.....but it is 100% perfect for me! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! Times 10! Birthday Kisses! (Coby and Daddy!)

A few RANDOM birthday party pics!

This year was Coby's 1st birthday party that wasn't AT home! We went to Pump IT Up and it was a BLAST!!

Little Grayson checking things out....

My friend DeeDra's baby! Isn't she a DOLL!? I just LOVE this pic!

The big slide was a HUGE hit!

Even Daddy was doing this slide!

oh yeah..even MOMMY AND DADDY did the slide! It was SO much fun!

Look how red Coby's little face got - he played HARD!

And of course....the cake....made especially for Coby, by my mom! I think she did an EXCELLENT job! And it tasted AWESOME!

The birthday king and queen! Coby and his "girlfriend", both 4 years old now!

My 4 year old little boy.....

This morning at breakfast I BEGGED Coby to let me take his picture....He kept saying you can tell by the look on his face...

This is what I got trying to wake my big 4 year old up this morning! At least he had a cute little grin on his face.
Lot's more pictures to follow soon - from the big Birthday party! :)

It's Not MY Party-but I Can Still Cry If I Want Too!

This is Coby CRYING! I KNOW how he BABY will be 4 years old in just 3 short day - and this is EXACTLY how I feel right now! I just want to BAWL my head off! I've learned that they all grow up way too fast. But Coby is my BABY - the LAST one I will have! I want him to stay little JUST awhile longer! Is that too much to ask? At least when he cries now...I can usually pick him up and let him know eveything is going to be alright and distract him with a funy face, or a piece of candy! What am I going to do in 10 years, when he's 14? I won't be able to pick him up like that and comfort him anymore!
Please say a little prayer for me this weekend - I don't want to be the silly mom at the birthday party who is crying....and yes....that IS something I would do!

Wii are LOVING it!!!!!

So...I was able to pull-through! I got a Wii for the family for Valentine's day! (I usually don't spend THAT much on Valentine's day, but I was really wanting something to bring the family together.)
So far so good.....This is Coby cheering Dylan on to do his push-ups! Coby tried to do a push up too! :)
And Coby LOVES playing the games just as much as anyone

This is the helicopter he was flying....

So sorry I don't have any pictures of Hunter! I don't know what happened....because he was DEFINETLY playing it! :) Maybe it's because he and I were challenging each other on the wii fit!

Some more play pictures from the weekend....Dylan holding my neice upside down......

Then it was Coby's turn upside down......

Valentine's & Weekend Wrap Up!

These are the flowers I was greeted with Valentine's morning - I was COMPLETELY surprised! Cory did a good job hiding them. I'm not sure I've ever seen lavendar roses, but I LOVE them! :) And if you will look to the right....this is a "love bug." That is what Coby made me at daycare for Valentine's day! He was SO proud of his love bug! There is water/glitter inside and when you shake it, it's all sparkly! Valentine's evening...we invited my parents over for dinner. And EVERYONE had a blast! It's been a LONG time, since I've seen my dad hold Hunter down on the floor and tickling him! Hunter was laughing hysterically!
Summer, my non-smiling neice! LOVED being chased by Dylan!

And Hunter.....
Uh oh! Dylan caught her....She was SO happy!

Tim, Oh how I LOVE thee......

Ok....for those of you who REALLY know me....then you KNOW I am a DIE-HARD Tim McGraw fan!!! Have been for years! I went and saw him back in 1993 before he was even "Tim McGraw." Know what I mean?
Well, the time has come.......Tim is coming back to town! Oh yeah!! And guess who got an email for the pre-sale tickets? Oh yeah!!! And guess who is going? OH YEAH!!! AND GUESS WHO IS SITTING ON THE FREAKING FLOOR?!!?!?!??!

I can't handle all this excitement!!!! I just want to scream like a little girl!
Be looking for me Tim.........I will be the one acting TOTALLY hysterically! :) Love ya!

Coby's Birthday Shirt

So - I was feeling a little creative this year for Coby's birthday! And believe it or not - having a hard time finding a Toy Story/Buzz Lightyear shirt that was CUTE!!! So....This is what I came up with ! I've NEVER done it before! I used Seam2Seam and applied the buzzlight year fabric (you like the rocket style?) And of course the #4. Then last night I used my sewing machine and did a zigzag stitch around everything to add a little life to it!
What do you think?
Should I keep my day job? LOL!

Pictures, pictures, pictures!

I have a hard time doing a blog-post without ANY pictures! I don't know why - just a personal preference, I guess?
What better time to play with bubbles, but while you are taking a BUBBLE BATH, right?

Ok....this next picture is for all those mom's out there who have teenage boys! PLEASE explain a few things to me! My teenager, has ALWAYS been my happy go lucky , polite, respectful, know-how-to-put-a-smile-on-your-face-kid! Up unitl lately.....Mine is the one on that back row with his arms crossed flat-bill hat on with a "mean" look on his face. WHAT THE?!?!?! What happened to my sweet kid? And why does he have to act like he is "Mr. Toughguy" now?
He and I have ALWAYS been SUPER close and got along great! Up until the last few weeks! And now....if he could shoot darts with his eyes....I WOULD BE DEAD!!! What is it with teenagers? And why are the parents (mom's mainly) always the BAD GUYS? REALLY?!?!?
I can't find my instruction booklet? The hospital MUST have given it to me when he was born. About what to do when there is a malfunction!
Please HELP!!!!

Birthday Invitations

I recently had Coby's invitations made for his birthday party. I found them on etsy and absolutely fell in LOVE with them! I ordered them from The Random Panda. Now let me tell you about my experience with "the random panda." Joleen....LOVE that girl!!! I had her change a few things on the invitation JUST how I liked it and placed the order!......A few days later - the party time and location had to be changed! (I KNOW!) I was STRESSED!!! I emailed Joleen with the Random Panda back and she said "sure - no problem and NO CHARGE!"
She worked with me from beginning to end!!!! I HIGHLY recommend THE RANDOM PANDA! I've already placed a second order with her for a friend of ours, ALSO having a birthday party!
If you have a party coming up - please go check out The Random Panda.....if you don't see it in her gallery - she can make it! Yes, she is THAT good! :) you love this invitation as much as I do?

Long, cold, icy, snowing, weekend! :)

So....this is the snow ice cream we made over the weekend! My first time making it - DELCIOUS! See me hard at work! LOL!
This is what our front yard looks like with all the snow - I love it!

And part of the back yard....
This is Sadie-girl! She LOVED playing in the snow - she was even eating the snow!

Coby, daddy and Sadie playing.
Mr. Cuteness
I taught Coby how to make snow angels - he made SEVERAL of them!

This is his first snow angel.

See - he had a great time!

Coby called the ice cicles "music." I think they looked like chimes, and he kept saying "I want to eat some music!"
