Last day of April

This weekend went ridiculously FAST. I'm sooo tired. When the alarm went off at 5:30am I heard Jason grumble and say he's sooo tired and felt like he didn't get any sleep last night. I just closed my eyes and went back to sleep.. I remember him kissing me goodbye and that was it.. before I knew it my alarm was going off at 6:40.. I hit the snooze. Rolled over and in came Kobe.. "Mom, will you go get me a Capri Sun? I'm scared to go get it." that's when I knew my day was starting.. I was extremely tired.. I couldn't imagine how J felt. He worked a 50 hour week then helped my dad on my parents bathroom they are redoing. He worked hard all weekend. We both decided when we were sending out Good Morning texts that this house was in for an early bedtime tonight.. Hopefully Kobe will be on board too.

Speaking of my parents remodeling their bathroom. They are totally gutting out the bathroom and redoing it all. The fun part is I'm helping Mom pick out things for the bathroom. I picked out the flooring (of course "ok'd" it with Mom) we picked out a theme. As soon as I can I'm going to do the painting in there. I'm pretty excited. Mom is ready for it to be completely done. This is their 2nd week with no shower. They have been coming here every night to shower. This weekend they went one night with out a toilet even. The guys (Dad, Jason and Adam) are working hard to get it done.
Friday night Kobe spend the night with Mamaw and Papaw. He's to the age now where he asks Mamaw to spend the night. He loves staying of there. He's a major mamaw's boy. Jason was out on the river with Dad and Adam so I had a quiet relaxing couple hours to myself before J got home. When he got home we decided to go rent a few movies out of the Red Box. We rented Jack and Jill with Adam Sandler.. it was funny but stupid. We also rented The Sitter wit Jonah Hill that was VERY stupid.

Saturday morning Jason and I went yard sale'n. we found some good finds. I got Kobe 7 pairs of underwear (I knew the owner that's the ONLY reason I got them LOL) for $0.50, a baseball helmet with face mask for $0.50 (those are $20 in store) a head board for his bed for $2.00, a DS game for $5, Jason got a weedeater for $3. I thought we did really good.

Kobe had a soccer game at noon. He didn't play to his full ability but still played excellent. He scored one goal this game. This game was a bit more of a challenge then last game. We played my niece's team which my sister is the coach. So that kept my parents on their toes lol. My niece played really well.. I hope she gets a goal soon. she tries soo hard. I'm glad we only play them once because it was not fun having family on the opposite team lol.

After the game we headed over to my parents so Jason could help with the bathroom. A storm came in with some nasty ol weather. We had quarter size hail and 80-90mph winds. There were Tornado Warnings and everything. It was pretty scary for a bit.

 About 7:00 we came home. Ordered Bobe's (I didn't cook all weekend Ahhh..) and headed to bed not long after dinner.

J-Bird let me sleep in til 9:45... I love him. He came and woke me up and brought me breakfast pizza :) I showered and Dad called to see if we wanted to ride to Lowe's with him and Mom. Of COURSE! I LOVE Lowe's. I got a hanging planter that I'm going to put pretty flowers in ;)
I love the looks of these once they have flowers in them. I was hoping to have mom pick out some flowers for "me" which were actually for her for her birthday but Lowe's didn't have any "I" liked lol.

Kobe got an awesome bird house to build at Lowe's. He was sooo excited to get home and do this.
I kinda was too lol. So as soon as we got back to Mamaw and Papaws we HAD to do it.
He did such a good job and was very proud of it. I was proud of him too..

I'll have to take a picture later of the finished product on our tree here at home..

Mom Kobe and I went out to walmart to fine "me" some flowers. By this time I had decided I'd just use the basket I got myself at Lowe's and fill it with her favorite flowers and then just get myself another basket later on.. but Mom kept going on and on about these flowers she had found (Gerbera Daisies) how she loved them and was going to get some soon. So I knew thats what we were going to get her. When we got back to her house I asked where she wanted them. She thought I was kidding and was SOOO happy when she found out I wasn't kidding lol. I'm glad she loved them and had no idea they were for her.. little did she know she was in for more surprises later that evening lol

The guys headed out to the river to check on their bank poles. So Mom, Kobe and I headed to the nursing home to feed my grandma dinner. Kobe is such a big help when it comes to helping Grandma eat.
After we left the nursing home.. I had to go home and fake going to the bathroom because I was waiting on everyone to get to the restaurant for Mom's surprise birthday dinner. After I got the clear that everyone was there and ready I headed out to "Dollar General" to get "trash bags" or so that's what I told mom lol. We pulled into El Mazatlan parking lot and of course she spotted Amanda's Jeep. "Is that Amanda's jeep? It is!" "what are we doing here? are we going in" Me- I was cracking up at this point and said just come on.. so we went inside and she was totally shocked lol.. It was great! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Hill, Amanda, Olivia, Adam, Dad, Jason and Kobe for helping make mamaw's b-day special!

Oh and P.S. I finally after almost 7 months of Marriage I got a wedding band!!!

April is comin' to an end..

I can't believe its almost May already.. The weather today is absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Kobe has a soccer game tonight and it will be a great night to sit out at the soccer field and watch him.

So I've had my mind on Adoptions lately. Seems like alot of people I know have/are adopting.. I think that is the most wonderful thing in the world.. I'm following 2 adoption stories right now from people  around here. I love reading daily/weekly postings about their journey. I would LOVE to adopt. If I had the knowledge and money I would start the process right now. Jason and I are trying to have a baby and have been for (going on) 3 months. It's very frustrating when you see that hag "Aunt Flo" every month.. I always ask Jason.. "What if we can't have a baby?" He says we can adopt but I know its soooo expensive and deep down we probably could never go that route financially. So We'll just continue and see what happens and praying one day we'll get pregnant.. The thought of Kobe being my only child makes me cry. I want him to have lots of brothers and sister.. At least he has Clayton and Mikayla which makes me extremely happy. Kobe actually has a half brother, his biological father has a son that is older than Kobe. But I doubt Kobe will ever see him again which kinda bothers me knowing MY son has a brother out there in the world he'll never see. Ahhh.. I could go on and on all day about these topics lol..

Okay onto some exciting news..

I finally after 7 years got new living room furniture!!!! I felt like a kid on Christmas morning.. I just wanted to sit across the room and look at it lol I'm sooo happy..

 I caught a turtle when we went fishing!
 This is what my child looks like after eating PB&J

First Soccer Game of 2012

I'm still FROZE from Kobe's soccer game.. it was 43* out this morning. Out where the soccer games are it is probably 10* colder. But Kobe played AWESOME! He got 4 goals this morning.. I'm very proud of him.. His whole team played awesome.

Soccer is in full swing!

Kobe's first soccer game got canceled last Saturday due to the rain. He had practice tonight so I snapped a few pics. They aren't the best because I was so far away and it was just my phone and zoomed to the max lol. I'm soooo proud of how aggressive he is this season. He's probably the shortest one out there and he goes up against kids a foot taller than him. He was even challenging a grown man who was helping coach tonight lol.. I'm very proud of him.. Did I mention that lol.? I'm praying the weather is good this weekend so we get to play a game. *Fingers Crossed*

 Getting ready to go get the ball ;)

Just a fish'n

Today the weather was gorgeous! If the wind didn't blow like a monsoon it would have been even better.. But we'll take it. J, Kobe and I headed out to fish for awhile. Jason was waiting on my Dad and Brother to come by and pick him up so they could go fishing on the river.. My Bestie and her daughter joined Kobe and I for some fishing and playing in water :) We all had a good time and are looking forward to more times like today :)

Excuse my hair and Face LOL But I've decided to add more pics of ME in blog posts lol
  Kobe with his first catch of the day.. He caught 4 all together..

Lots to talk about since its been awhile.

I don't know why I wait soo long to blog.. Every night after Kobe goes to bed I think "ooh I need to blog, its been awhile." then I either get side tracked by Facebook, Pinterest, TV shows or my Hubby. So here is whats been going on in our lives lately..

We celebrated Ms. Mikayla's 3rd Birthday..

We also celebrated Loodle's 6th Birthday aka Olivia
Olivia had a Pool Party, indoors of course.

Kobe and I saw our first 3D movie.. We saw Dr. Seuss' Lorax.. it was a very good movie and we LOVED the 3D effects..

We had the entire theatre to ourselves until 1 minute til the movie started.. then 2 moms and their 5 kids together sat RIGHT beside us... the whole theatre and they sit by us LOL

Kobe started soccer again this year.. He sat out 2 seasons because he would have still been in Micro Soccer and he seemed "bored" with it.. now he is in u-8 and it seems to be so much "bigger" than Micro lol... I haven't got a picture yet of him but I will have one soon.. his first game is this Saturday

We went to the City Park for an Easter Egg hunt.. NOW I remember why I never went before.. woah.. some of these ppl I've never laid eyes on in my life.. pretty sure these people crawled out of the woodwork.. and parents were cheating LOL I mean come on.. this is for the kids.. parents were running around gathering all the eggs they could.. I'm not talking about helping point eggs out for their preschoolers.. I'm talking, them RUNNING.. Getting the eggs and YELLING at their kids it was insane LOL...
 Kobe got 31 eggs.. which I thought was pretty good.. he was happy ;)

Friday before Easter we colored Easter Eggs

The Easter Bunny brought tons of goodies and hid eggs outside this year :)

 No we didn't hunt Easter eggs in the night.. we were up THAT early lol before the sun..
Later that day we headed to church with my Grandparents.. After Church we went straight to my in-laws house and had dinner.. then straight from there to my family dinner at my Grandparents.

Its was a VERY fast paced day.. Well fast paced weekend for that matter... This weekend coming up should be a relaxing one.. but we shall see.. ;)
