What do you do with your time??? days are flying by. I don't know how I am staying so busy (and NO...I have not gone to lunch every day with friends or gone shopping).
So, last weekend, my cousin had her wedding reception (they had a Wedding-moon on an island where only the two of them were allowed to go...pretty cool, huh?) in Deep Ellum. If you want more info, e-mail me...she is very happy and we are super happy for her!!! We really look like we could be sisters instead of cousins. It is really weird! My parents, brother, & sister-in-law stayed downtown. The boys and I went to hang out with them at the hotel and then went to Northpark mall.
Here is a picture of the boys looking at "the tallest building I've ever seen" (quote by Will)

On Sunday, we met over at Jeffrey's brother's house to hang out with the whole family. The boys spent the night and had a cousin sleepover (and we've been paying for the exhaustion ever since). Jeffrey and I had a date night...went to Garden Ridge and Pei Wei. We were redecorating our room this is looking much better! I absolutely love doing projects with my husband...I don't like doing them alone!
On Tuesday, I met Kami & Eileen for lunch (after visiting Julie at the hospital who was about to deliver her baby...sorry Julie...I'm sure you didn't really want to see us 4 hours before giving birth!). It was the first time for Kami to meet Eileen's girls (Mary & Kate). I wish we all lived on the same street...that would be heaven!!!
(Notice the hair is better...not great but better!)

On Wednesday, I picked the boys up early from school (after helping Mrs. Williams cut out bears for Bear cutting skills are not very strong but I am getting better) to take Jake to his check up for his finger. The NEVER ENDING DOCTOR'S VISIT (1 1/2 hours) ended by us seeing the doctor for 5 minutes to tell us that Jake is fine and he can get back to his normal activities. Why did it take 1 1/2 hours to tell us that! Ugh!
We had planned on going to Cheesecake Factory to celebrate and get some dessert. Since it was 4:30pm we decided to eat, too! Oh, my...that was expensive! The boys said it was the nicest place they had ever eaten at...maybe in 3 years they can go back (because that is going to be how long it will take to pay the bill off...just was expensive though).
Yesterday, I met Ramona (the Nursery director from IBC) for lunch. It was so good to catch up with her! She is precious and I miss her!
Last night, we had our first 2nd Grade Mommies Night Out at Life's A Beach. It was a lot of fun. We really have fun moms in the 2nd grade!!!
Today, I baked (well, I started them on Monday and most were frozen) 70 cupcakes to take up to the school for the teachers. I have been so grateful for the teachers this was my way of saying "thank you". I hope they liked them and felt appreciated!
So, tonight is FM360 (a family worship thing at our church) and soccer starts tomorrow so I'm sure there will be many more pictures to post. For now, here is a picture of the boys at the fountain in Southlake Town Center!
