JeJe's Surgery

Today JeJe had to have knee replacement surgery so I headed to the hospital after dropping the boys off at school.  She did great!  I hung out with her for most of the day, ate lunch with Papaw then headed back to Lindale to pick the boys up from school.  When Aaron got home from the shop we all headed back up there.

Get Well Soon, JeJe!  We're ready for you to run, jump and play!! :)

Celebrating Ragan & LoLo's Birthday
Tonight we had diner at Mom & Dad's for Ragan and Lauren's Birthdays.  Mom made chicken enchiladas and fried peach pies. YUM!  It was delish as it ALWAYS is and we had a good time just hanging out and watching the kids play.
Uncle Zach & Uncle Rico took the kiddos for a ride on the Gator.

Project Tuesday

Today Abram had a little project to do for school.  He had to make a poster featuring his favorite American.  I asked him who he wanted to do the poster on and he said right away "Abraham Lincoln."  They have been learning about presidents at school and he's been telling us about Abe Lincoln and George Washington.  He wanted to do one on George Washington, too!  (Little over achiever! HA!) Here is a look at his finished project...

Long Weekend @ The Cabin & Medders Manor Mondays

This weekend we had the pleasure of a long, relaxing weekend away to Beaver's Bend to stay at The Cabin! It was so nice, as always, and the weather was perfect! We absolutely love our time there. We get to take the boys exploring, look for deer, "swim" in the hot tub, sit around the fire, watch movies and, of course, eat!! The best part is definitely the relaxing atmosphere! I alway take the best naps there with no guilt!! ;) Here's a look at some of the fun we had...

The Cabin
Playing in the park at Beaver's Bend 
The Boys were having a little bark throwing war with Daddy.
Aaron and Abram were skipping rocks and Asher walks up with a rock and says "Watch and learn, my friends."  So FuNnY!!  Aaron looks at me and says "Did you tell him to say that?"  Nope.  All Asher!!
Playing tic tac toe in Beaver's Bend State Park with berries and leaves. 
Deer on the side of the rode as we drove through the State Park.
We saw over 40 that evening!
Hot Tub Action!

Medders Manor Mondays

Each Monday I usually give a peek into our home.  This Monday I'd like to feature another Medders Manor... The Cabin!  This fabulous Manor belongs to my precious father-in-law and mother-in-law who so graciously allow us to use it anytime we want!  It is so NICE!  Here is a little tour of the inside...

The Futon is the boys favorite!

2 Bedrooms with a Jack & Jill Bathroom in between.
Master Bedroom
There are 2 1/2 bathrooms and a laundry room.  Each bedroom has a flatscreen TV, the wrap around porch has an awesome hot tub, grill and eating area and there is a nice fire pit area just off the porch.  All you need for a good time! It sleeps 8 comfortably but we've piled in 15!!! Ha!

Today my AwEsOmE parents offered to keep the boys so that Aaron & I could go out for Valentine's Day.  They also kept Cason and Conleigh so Cameron & Christina could do the same.  So we decided to have a Double Date!  It was so much FuN!!!  We left early because we knew Tyler would be crazy with people celebrating early and it was!!  We went to eat at Julian's and it was delicious as always!  They had even set the mood for romance - Ha! ;)  Then we went to the movies to see Just Go With It.  It was good and funny!  We finished off the night and our tummies with Orange Leaf!  YuM!  It was a GREAT night and we really enjoyed hangin' with Rico & Nina minus all the kiddos for a change! ;)

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
Tonight I wanted to treat my guys special to show them how much I LOVE them so I went all out!!!  I made them a candlelit dinner - steak, shrimp, veggies, loaded baked potatoes and croissant rolls.  For dessert, heart-shaped chocolate lava cake with ice cream, hot fudge and caramel AND chocolate covered strawberries!!!  YuM!!!  
Before I baked them...
Valentine Gifts for My Guys!
... And AfTeR!!  Yummy!!!
The boys each got some candy and these little build-a-bear outfits, Aaron got 2 shirts, candy and a card and they got me the Juicy perfume I'd been wanting, Viva La Juicy!  Thanks, Sweethearts!

This Valentine's Day and all the celebrations were fantastic!  I am so blessed, so loved and so IN LOVE with my family, my husband and my life.  Most of all I'm in love with the author and creator of the greatest love story of all - My Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  Thank you, Lord, that "We love because He first loved us."  1 John 4:19

One More Valentine's Day Celebration...
I had asked Aaron to take me to Dallas for Valentine's Day to shop and eat and spend the day together. Because of his work schedule, we decided we'd have to go the day after v-day and his AwEsOmE parents offered to keep the boys for us! So off we went... It was a FaBuLouS day!!! Lunch was delicious! (As it always is at The Cheesecake Factory!!) And I was a woman on a mission when we got to Northpark! I had so much fun shopping and Aaron was such a trooper to tough it out with me! ;) We had such a GREAT day! :)
