Little Bit of Everything!

We've been up to a good bit lately, so I thought I'd give you a little update. First off with LG's new toy that she "earned" last week. I came across an "old school toy" at Toy Fair: the Snoppy sno cone machine. They love it and ask to make one every evening.

Next, if you drive past our house in the afternoon/evening time, we are more than likely to be in the front yard doing this. Seriously. Jake loves hitting the ball, working on throwing, etc. And I am thoroughly enjoying this as well. I even helped out at t-ball practice last night and managed not to get hit with the ball. But Jake managed to hit the only girl on our team with a ball. Big accident. :(
I have finished the flower beds and am so proud of them! My first purple flower bloomed on one of the verbena plants yesterday. So proud! Wish I would have taken a before picture. There was a lot of digging up and moving around of plants.
Last year I moved about 4 hydrangea plants from the back yard to the side here. I didn't know if they would make it, but this year they all look fantastic. Again, I am so excited to see the plants getting ready to bloom.
Last Friday we headed up to Railroad Park for Dinner and a Movie. This was a community function put on by the Junior Auxilary of Ruston(think Junior League for those of you not familiar). They showed Princess and the Frog. The kids didn't sit down for the movie but had a great time with all of their friends. I let them bring treats in their lunch boxes. This turned out to be a pretty good idea! And a big THANKS to my mom for tagging along with us. Matt was umpiring baseball that night and could not go. It always helps to have an extra hand.
And last but not least, Katie called me on Friday to see if Matt and I wanted to check out the Kenny Chesney concert in Dallas with them Saturday evening. Uncle Kracker, Billy Currington, and the Zac Brown Band were there as well. In addition to that, the concert was at the new Cowboy Stadium. We were in! And we were able to enjoy food and drinks before and during the concert at the CTB suite inside the stadium. We had a BLAST!! Thanks again Katie and Lance! And to my mother-in-law for taking care of the babies short notice so we could get away for some alone time. We are very blessed to have caring grandparents!

Easter Egg hunts tomorrow. Stay tuned!

Suzanne, your yard and house look beautiful!! I smiled when I saw the Snoopy sno cone machine - I had one too when I was a kid! And I have a feeling it probably came from Toy Fair. =)
