I'm back

Wow, I just realized that I havent blogged in 3 months! I guess I have some catching up to do.
Since I blogged last Brayden has started preschool and is loving it. He has learned so much already. They are having Thanksgiving lunch Friday and he's pretty excited about that. Brayden will start Kindergarten next August and we will start Emma in preschool then. We have 2 sets of wonderful grandparents that keep her now so we can save a little money ;)
Also, I have lost a total of 40 pounds since I started my diet in March. I've gone from a size 12/14 to a 6 so I'm pretty excited about that! I would love to loose another 5-10 pounds, but I doubt it will happen during the
Speaking of holidays....I am so ready to put my Christmas tree up, but I'm going to hold off until Thanksgiving...which is only a week away. However, I have already put my Christmas wreath on my front door my 2 trees on the porch. I love this time of year....excpet for the getting dark at 5:00 thing....

Preschool, turning 2 and potty training

I know, I know...I haven't blogged in forever....I've been too busy reading everyone elses...:)
It seems that I don't have 'babies' anymore. Brayden is starting preschool next week! We went yesterday to see his room and visit his teachers and he is very excited. I think he is really going to enjoy it. He will be going 3 days a week. I almost cried when we walked in his room, so I don't even want to think about his 1st day of Kindergarten next year! He is just growing up way too fast. My sweet Emma will be tunring 2 on Sunday....where does the time go?!? We are in the process of potty training her & she is doing vey well. She has had 2 accidents....thank the good Lord both times she was on the tile & not on my carpet! She had a poopy accident in the bathroom, and lets just say she went straight in the tub, after I wiped to poop off of course, the rugs got washed & the floor was scrubbed with clorox wipes (which are the best thing ever!) Ahhh, the joys of motherhood!

Happy Birthday Brayden!

Wow, it's hard to believe my baby boy is 4 today! Brayden is an awesome kid! He is truly a blessing and I consider it an absolute honor that God has allowed me to be a his mom. We have a pretty full day planned. I woke him up singing 'Happy Birthday' this morning. He and Emma are at their Pawpaw & Nana's while I work til 12:30. Then we're going home to play outside in the pool, Bryaden and I are going out for dinner and going to order his birthday cake & finish getting his birthday party supplies for Saturday. Then we are going to go home & when Patrick gets home from work we're going to have some birthday cake and ice cream...well, they'll have cake & ice cream, I'm still dieting....

She's back!

My mom has finally moved back to Tuscaloosa! Woohoo :) She and my stepdad moved Monday and are now officially Tuscaloosians again! I'm going to like being able to just call her up & ask her to go with me to T.J. Maxx or Walmart. I will probably get on her nerves for a while :) Brayden is thrilled and thinks we should be at her house all the time. I picked him up from my dads yesterday when I got off work & the first thing he said was "ok, let's go to Mawmaw's!"
My stepmom asked me what we had planned for Memorial Day. I told her I wasnt sure yet, but my mom mentioned cooking out. She then said "this is going to complicate things" :) Normally I would just run over to their house for lunch, after all it's only 2 minutes away (we can see their neighborhood from our front yard). Now I guess I'll just have to go with whoever asks first :) Too much family - I think thats a good problem to have! :)

My sweet boy :)

I may have to keep my eye on Brayden. He apparently has just skipped over the 'girls have cooties' stage. This is the conversation we had on the way home from church Wednesday night.
Brayden: "Momma, did you see that girl in the striped shirt in my class?"
Me: "No baby, I didn't notice"
Brayden: "She kept following me around....she's my friend"
Me: "You'll have to show her to me Sunday"
Brayden: "She was at The Barnyard too" (his preschool party for church was there)
Me: "Was she?"
Brayden: "and Momma.......she sure is pretty!"

You go girl!

I just want to say for the record that I am 100% backing Miss California! I (being a Christain) personally loved her answer for the gay marriage question. The fact that Perez Hilton (a gay man) is the one who asked it makes her reponse more wonderful. I think it's great the way she answered the question with an honest opinion and she didn't just give an answer that she thought the judges would want to hear. So, in the futre Mr. Hilton, don't ask someone their opinion if your not prepared for it!

Good news!

My mom is moving back to Tuscaloosa! I am very excited about this new information :) She and my stepdad are moving back in about 4 weeks. I'm sure they will miss being so close to the beach! My mom stayed at our house while Patrick & I went out of town for our anniversary a couple of weeks ago & Emma became a Mawmaw's girl so I know she will love being able to see her Mawmaw ALOT more. My mom is very excited about moving back to be closer to the grankids. All I can say is she better get ready, I'm sure Brayden will be calling her everyday wanting to go to her house or her come over to ours! I am very excited about having a walking buddy now. It hard pushing 2 kids in a double stoller who weigh about 60 lbs (combined). Now I will have someone to swap pushing duty with :)
