Current Obession

I really really want this pillow right now...I want a bunch of them but this one will suffice for now...

Look it has all the highways that I spend the majority of my time on...honking...cussing...and dreaming about wine!

Well this pillow will have to wait in line because I'm going shopping for fakes, that's right ladies I'm talking Gucci and Louis, this weekend down on Harwin (thanks to Katie for giving me the "low down" on where to go) with my bestest.

Yes, that's right Houston...Ellen and Kristen are footloose and fancy free i.e. no children and no husbands for one might refer to it as bliss (only because we'll get to see our kids and husbands in the morning)!

Saturday can't come soon enough! (but I'll also be ready for Sunday to see my little crawler)

P.S. They also have glasses and they are much more affordable so they'll be coming to live in The Woods sooner then the pillow sadly.

Father's Day

Early Saturday morning we loaded up EVERYONE and EVERYTHING and got on the road...headed to the farm!

We got to the farm and hung out with the fam all day. It was so hot that we thought that Caroline might enjoy a dip in the princess pool.

Check out the inflatable fish that her Grandmommy bought her. She loved them obviously.

Well it was too hot for the adults outside and the mosquitoes at the farm could quite possibly carry Caroline what was the logically solution...Put the princess pool in the dining room and let Caroline enjoy the water while we enjoyed the air conditioning.

No water yet...but having a blast!
She really loved that fish!

In came the water...YEAH!
Give me that water hose.....
Now it was off for Vivian to have fun popping/eating bubbles. I wish I had taken a video of it.

Then Sunday we went to church with my parents and then hit the pavement back to H-town.
As you can tell we had the most fantastic first Father's Day!

Caroline's Christening

The first weekend in June was wonderful. It was Caroline's christening weekend spent with family.

We started out the weekend at the farm with a first...a sippy cup! It went really well considering it was her first time.

Then it was off to the Disney Princess Pool. She had a blast as you can clearly see.
She was trying to get at those princesses!

Splish Splash! Oh how she loves to splash in the water. You should see me after a bath.

Then Vivian decided she needed to cool off.
Seriously...are you guys going to allow this?
Vivian was clearly in Golden Heaven!

This is one of my favorite pictures from the weekend. This is my Granny, Caroline's Great Granny, warming up Caroline's little feet.
Then it was time to head inside for a bottle given to her by her Great PawPaw. Caroline wasn't very looks like she's punching him.
Then the big day....
Caroline wasn't so much a fan of the bonnet....

Another one of my favorites...
Tada...THE christening gown in all of its glory.
Eston, the reverend that married Kyle and me, came over from Alley, my parents' church, to perform Caroline's christening. It was so much more special.

After church we headed over to the Kinsloe House for lunch and a wardrobe the other more casual dress...
Lunch was wonderful and it was so great to spend the day with friends and family. We are so incredibly bless to be surrounded by such loving people.

Caroline's christening went so successfully and she looked so beautiful in BOTH of her dresses.

Lots of wonderful memories were made that day. Memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life.
