Scrappers Tball...


Another season of Tball in the books...
Ty played fall ball this year and had a great season..it's amazing how much he matured from last spring season..he truly understands the game this season. 
And was sooooo excited when he would get a few players out...or make his way home and have the stands cheer for him..(maybe his favorite part)...haha! 
As always I enjoy cheering him on and being his #1 fan! 
#7 on the field but #1 in my heart! :)

and Travis was the head coach this year and did a fantastic job. Always makes you feel good when parents request to be on your team next season! He did a great job of making each kid feel special and root them on..but teaching at the same time. And trust me, herding 13 4-5 year olds is not an easy task. He had some great help...which makes it easier! 

Very proud of both of them!















Of course his other cheerleaders!!!!





 Grandpa and mom-mom always in attendance...and ty always called his granddaddy after the games too..

She Leaves a little Sparkle..

It still has not hit me that we now have a 3 year old little girl...WWOOAA! so hard to believe. 
She was a surprise since birth and she continues that trend daily. 
She is incredibly funny with her mannerisms, smart and so loving. 
She loves her "Bruder" and "claire-y" as she calls them and is the best sister!

She loves: pink, sparkles, twirling, princess shoes, anything girly (makeup, polish, doing hair, jewels, etc). She is the best hugger and can clinch on tight. Her favorite show is Angelina Ballerina..since Hanna too loves her dance and gymnastics..as well as Cheerleading. She is constantly cheering someone on no matter what the situation is...and always says, "good job." or "i'm so proud of you." haha. 
She is the best care taker/mommy/nurse and doctor and will always take care of you! 
Although she is quite the girly-girl..she can ninja turtle fight, hunt and fish with the best of 'em.
She is extremely theatrical and very imaginative. very funny to listen to some of her conversations as she's playing by herself or in the carseat..or playing in her room when she should be sleeping! :)
Loves her suckers, cookies, (anything sweet really..haha), fruit and juice (we squirt Mio flavorings into their water and call it juice..hehe). 
we have a fantastic life but I can not imagine life without her...she is so special! 

all of her dresses must.twirl...so, this one is a winner! :)

a lot of sass and attitude.




and our princess... (or at least she thinks)







The night before her birthday she did.not.want.to.go.to.sleep. So, finally around 10 she gave it up...and I was able to put her balloons up. 
Well, about 2 she started crying so I went to get her and brought her back in bed with me...around 6 claire woke up...so I took the balloons and put them above her chair at the table...haha. did not expect that to be so difficult...haha!


special bday pancakes, with "pink sprinkles."
We face timed daddy at work so he could watch her open her present (since we had a busy day)...a caboodle (which she calls a tackle box..since it looks like ty's...only pink...lol)...filled with lipsticks and nail polish..and a very sparkly necklace!


She then wanted to go on a walk to the park...so we did! 
Claire got in on the slide action as well...in my lap of course.



Then we went to one of her friends from school bday party at the park...they share the same bday.
that was fun..


my personal manicurists...I got the royal treatment...nails, hair and makeup! :)
and I painted her nails.


and to top it off...her sweet friend walked down and gave her the sweetest homemade card, more lipsticks...she was soooo excited..oh, and an applesauce...which she loved! haha!

Such sweet, sweet friends. 


Then it was off to ty's last tball game..where she cheered on the Scrappers one last time.

We were going to do cake once we got home..but she feel asleep in the car and after bath and books she immediately crashed...so another time! 
She had such a fun bday...and we can't wait to celebrate her again next saturday for her party! 


Happy birthday, Hanna James. We love you to the moon and back!!!
We play a game and tell each other how much we love them...and she always says, "to the moon and back" or "to houston/katy and back." lol! 
Love, love her to pieces!

Mommy-Ty Day...



I've said it before and I'll say it again....I HAVE THE SWEETEST LITTLE BOY! 
Like any mom, the love you have for your kids is indescribable...I could hug and kiss him all.day.long...and sometimes I do! hehe! 
And some of my favorite days are our "Mommy and Ty" days.
I always try to have one on one days with each kid...and it's always a fun-filled day!

Ty had to go to the orthopedic dr (his bones are perfect and healthy)..so, we made it a mommy-ty day! Although, he was super sad he was going to miss school and asked me to tell his teachers to not do anything fun while he was gone. haha. He loves school.
(side note...our MDO director texted me asking about Ty, so after I told her what was going on and what he had told me, when we went to pick the girls up she said, "Ty, we missed you today and your class didn't do anything fun." His face lit up..lol. too funny! We love our MDO staff/program.

his appt was first thing in the morning..so after we dropped the girls off at MDO we headed there..he did great and I we were both glad to hear his bones were great...just flat footed. :)

Since it was a gorgeous day...Ty chose to go golfing..so we went to the driving range and he hit a bucket of balls...then it was time to head to lunch...



chick-fil-a is always the favorite choice...

My handsome lunch date...



Later that night as I was doing a few things for a little neighborhood baby shower at my house, Ty used my tools and made me the most Gorgeous necklace.ever.
It says, "This is my mommy necklace" with a stick figure of mommy and ty! 
He was soooo proud and of course, I teared up and will always keep it!
Later I even got a bracelet to match. 
He's just the sweetest, most thoughtful little guy with a heart of gold. and pretty crafty..haha (so proud..haha).


Before bed we all had cuddle time..my favorite! 
(yes, hanna is back in her mermaid costume). 


Babies are all blessings and I thank God every night for my 3.
This was Ty's prayer that night...
"Dear God, thank you for this wonderful day. Thank you for letting it be a mommy-ty day. Thank you for my bones being healthy. Please keep my daddy safe on the airplane. Thank you for mommy, daddy, hanna and claire. Amen."

Pumpkin Patch...


A local church, St. Luke's, hosts a pumpkin patch every year. Last year, since Claire was just born, we missed it...(b/c I wanted a pic of all 3)...but this year, we were on top of it and made it the first day they opened (thanks to a friend who let us in on the scoop). 
I wanted to go while B&S were here...so, we all piled with hopes of getting a good group shot...well, that didn't happen...especially since the wind was howling..but, we tried..and they had fun running around, trying to pick up the biggest pumpkins and putting their faces in all the cut-outs! Glad we were the only ones there...so they could do that! 





do you spy 5 little faces?????
B&S up top, hanna and claire bottom left and Ty bottom right! hahaha.


So blessed that these 5 love each other but Hanna adores "my brady"....they have a sweet little bond!


remember that group shot I was hoping to get....here it is! haha.


Love these 3 to pieces!


and these 2...



this pic sums up their personalities so well....they are all so different..but that's what makes the world go round!

My handsome little fella!

                               my theatrical little girl..                and my sweet as pumpkin pie, baby girl..
