TAKS Testing Today

Today was the first day of TAKS testing here in Texas. Reagan has lived in fear of this day for a long, long time. I got her to bed early (7:30) and gave her a good breakfast (hard boiled egg, bagel with cream cheese and bacon). But I really wanted to send her off to school knowing that we love and support her. I wanted her to know she is prepared. I wanted her to trust her instincts and go with her gut. I wanted her to know SHE ROCKS. So, Jerad and I made a few signs and hung them up in our breakfast area. SHE LOVED IT. She left on top of the world and ready to go. It was a good morning :) Hugs.

Happy Easter Sunday!!!!

What a BEAUTIFUL morning here in Houston Texas!!!! It was a very nice day for an egg hunt :)
My kids love the hunt for the eggs in hopes of finding the GOLDEN EGG. I woke up at 5:00AM to hide the eggs and then went back to bed. Sweet little Roman came down about 6:30 and said he had picked out his upstairs window and saw a few eggs. He asked if he could look at his basket which I had filled with a bunny, legos, baseball cards and some chocolate. Then he woke Reagan up and the hunt was on. Even Oliver got in on the madness. I got some good shots of him. The sun was nice this time of morning. I hope you all had a fantastic day with church, family and friends. Happy Easter All. Hugs

Jones Family Easter

Today we celebrated Easter with my brother, his fiance' and his three kids. My mom put the whole thing together, provided the place to hide and hunt the eggs and provided pizza after. Now who could pass that up!!!!! I thought I would repay her with photos from the day and I think they turned out really cute. These cousins are like brothers and sister, and bicker back and forth. It is so funny to watch. We went back to place so the kids could swim and it was just a great day all around. Family is so important to me!!! I want to take advantage of the amazing fact that we all live live about 5 miles from each other. I am so greatful. Hugs

Rodeo Roundup!!!

WOW, long time no post :) I am trying to play catch and will try hard to stay up to date here.

My kids LOVE the rodeo as most of you know. Both of the kids school celebrate with a day of western wear and fun. At Roman's school, I have contributed to the "rodeo" by making the stick horses. My mom helps and it takes about a month from start to finish. It is alot of work but the sweet kids thank me for weeks after the rodeo. So Sweet.

Reagan is just such a cowgirl at heart. She looks so cute in her cowgirl attire. So grown up and just beautiful, inside and out!!!! good to be back, Hugs.
