Will Photography!!!

So, as I promised you on Sunday. I had to make one full post of the boys photography... it's hilarious and these are bits and pieces of what we find when we download pics on the computer!!!
They are just too stinkin cute!!!

I must say... this picture of Luke is pretty good Will! It is a great, natural, crack-up laugh

Their one and only penguin....

Oh yes, they must get a picture of their boat...

and Luke's snowman pj's....

our living room wall...

this is a good one of Luke in the computer chair (they are not suppose to be around the computer)


their new favorite book to read at night time...

I hope you enjoyed this pictures as much as I did... the boys for some reason have no idea that we ever see them, so they think they are much smarter than we are :):):) I remember those days!!

Everyone have a blessed day!

Lazy Fun!!!

This weekend we did not do hardly ANYTHING!!! We have been going so much lately, with school starting, family/friend get togethers and just everyday life... So needless to say, we had a blast this weekend. I got some of my cleaning done, but not all of it because I was seriously too lazy! I went to the grocery store yesterday, then this morning we all went to church. Besides that, we didn't leave the house :)

During bath time tonight, we were being goofy with the boys while they were in the tub. I made them some soap mohawks. Their just the cutest things ever so I had to share these pics with y'all!

I just noticed Will's not smiling with his teeth showing. That is seriously a pet peeve of mine... I wish I noticed it while I was taking the pics...UGH!

When I downloaded some pics from the camera. John and I saw about 20 other pics that Will must of taken Saturday morning before they came to wake us up... It seems lately they just get up on the weekends and turn the t.v on, they give us a little longer to sleep before they come wake us up, I thoroughly enjoy this pleasure of sleeping in... but when we saw the pictures they took, OH MY we just laughed our BOOTIES off! They are too freaking hilarious and I might make a whole post all to it's self dedicated to pictures they take without us knowing about it. Every time I download pictures on the computer, I always find pictures they took. TOO FUNNY!!!

I will leave you with this verse for the week, it was one we touched on this morning in church and it just really struck a cord in my heart. At this time in our lives we are going through some trying times (like many others) but there's never anything more encouraging than the word of the one and only.... Jesus Christ!!!

"You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit--fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. This is my command: Love each other" John 15:16

Y'all have a blessed week! Talk with you soon!

Heavy Heart..

First off, I have had the worst cold this week. I can't remember having such a horrible cold! I remember getting really sick when I was pregnant with Will and it was a head cold, I remember I could NOT get rid of it and this seems kind of like that one. EXCEPT, we all know I am not preggo this time, so I'm just trying to keep with with everything and everyone while getting this cold taken care of!
I have a heavy heart this morning, my first baby, Will is in Kindergarten and this is just how it is for now. Y'all, no matter what time I get up, things are so hectic in the mornings. I don't know what to do to make the mornings easier for everyone. The last thing I want for Will is to be rushing around the house all morning and then shooting him off to school with Daddy. It hurts so badly! He is a lazy one though, he takes FOREVER to get ready, eat breakfast and brush his teeth and hair. That child is on his OWN time. He can't be though, I don't know the right way to express this to him. Luke on the other hand is ready to get dressed and eat breakfast immediately after his head leaves the pillow (Talk about COMPLETE opposites) I'm just upset that mornings have to be like this, I get up before the boys and get ready before I have to get them out of bed, I have my alone time and pray before the day starts. I still though by the time I get to work feel like it's bedtime because we have done so much that morning!
I'm sure that by time things will get easier, it is the first week that both boys are going two different directions at two different times. I just am such a planner, organizer and when things aren't going as planned it bothers me so badly! If any of you have advice for me or things I should be doing differently please let me know! Just so you know, I do prepare everything in the evenings, besides making their sandwiches for lunch, that way in the morning most of my time is spent getting them dressed and fed.
I hope you all are having a blessed day and oh what a GLORIOUS day the Lord has given us today, I do thank HIM!!

Long, long over due!!!

It has been forever since I have posted anything.... you can just call me lazy!! This past week has been a busy one, Will started his first day of kindergarten and that brings lots of things that must get done! I'm not sure which one has taken most of my money this week, WalMart or Target and there were many days that we took 2 trips in one day to each store, crazy! Now you can call that bad planning by Mommy!

Below is a picture I took of the boys at a local sunflower field... it's really cute with all of the colors, but I also thought it precious in black and white too! (Honestly, I changed the picture to black and white, but I thought I saved it in color too... I guess I didn't because I can't find the color pic anywhere on my computer...UGH!!)

Here's Will on his first day of school... he did wonderfully and is excited about starting his first FULL week of school this week.... I'm so happy and excited for my big boy!

I think he's just the cutest thing EVER!!!

This weekend has been pretty nice. We haven't done too much (but take more trips to Wal-Mart and Target)...haha! Last night we had some dear friends come cookout with us and they brought their 5 month old baby girl!! She is the cutest thing ever and so beautiful! I promise I have never seen such a happy baby! I could not find my camera last night and still can't find it, I think the boys hide it from me and now they can't find it either. So, I would of loved to posted pictures of our great weekend, but when I find my camera, I will take some to post :)

I hope everyone is enjoying this glorious weekend and your family! The weekends are just great because I enjoy us all being in the same house and place for two whole days! Such a blessing! Y"all have a great week!

Smiley Face in Two..

It doesn't take us much to amuse us here at Clementsville. The other night we were outside playing with the boys... their "smiley face" ball somehow got split in two... well who ever thought it would keep us entertained for so long... I thought I would share this fun with you all!!!

Daddy and Will are the two that started this whole silly fun...

Then Lukie just HAD to get in on the fun too...

top of Will's head...

Luke thinking he is something else with that silly "hat" on....

Yes we enjoy the fact that our boys are getting older and we can be so silly with them. It's so much fun sometimes to just put your guard down, throw away the Mommy Daddy roles and just have fun with each other! I think all kids should see the silly, funny side of their parents. Having them has been the best part of my life... (all 3 of them) :)

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend as much as I am... right now the boys (all 3 of them) are taking naps and I enjoy these times of the weekend more than anything... piece and quiet is hard to come by around this house these days...

Love you all!

Honest Scrap Award!!!!

I am honored to get the Honest Scrap Reward from Go East Memphis Mama I would love for all you ladies to enjoy this as much as I did!
Thank you LA!

Here's the rules....I tell you 10 things about me (honestly) and then pass on the award to 10 fabulous people.

Here we go!

1. Homemade sweet tea is by far my favorite beverage!!!

2. I struggle with losing and gaining weight... I never had this issue before having kids, I think I don't make enough time for myself and that is a goal lately that I'm trying to accomplish. I have been walking atleast 3 times per week at night when the boys go to sleep. I pray I keep this up!!
3. My husband and I have never had financial problems until the past 2 years.. it is a culture shock for us and we struggle everyday to make the right decisions for our future. Things are looking up though and we hope one day to be back in the game :)
4. I got pregnant out of wedlock.... it was bittersweet, being raised Southern Baptist, I had some explaining to do, but HE was the best thing that ever happened to me! He is one of my best friends!

5. I have NEVER read these Twilight books and frankly feel that there are way too many people obsessed with this thing.... I'm curious though, so you never know, check back with me soon on this topic and see if I'm obsessed yet :)

6. This might sound crazy to a few of you, but I really enjoyed breastfeeding the boys. It is something that I miss all the time
7. About every 6 months I go through baby fever again... Right now I am trying to talk my hubs into trying again... just trying because Luke is already 3 and I do not want to wait much longer! Financially it's just not possible and I get that.... but it is something that I'm keeping on my prayer list... either take the desire away or make things work out to where it's possible!!!
8. I am just now keeping in touch with lots of my lady friends.... they are just now getting to where I've been in life!

9. I LOVE my husband more than anything in this world! He makes me laugh and loves me more than any man could! He can be a goober butt sometimes... but hey, we all can :)

10. I struggle with trying to be a perfect person, it can get me down at times and I wonder why I think everything has to be perfect at all times! I can't go to bed without the kitchen being cleaned, but one good thing about trying to be perfect, is trying to be perfect in my relationship with God, it's a relationship that has it's ups and downs... but HE'S by myside through it all and HE knows I do not have to be perfect :)

So that is a little tidbit of info about me!

Schools Days

It's school time again!!! This year is a super special year for our family! Will is starting Kindergarten! I can not even believe he is old enough for me to be typing this, but yes he will be in a big, real school! This is a subject that I'm very sensitive about. God put something in my heart to want to home school, it is something that John and I both feel that if I did not work, I would be homeschooling. Right now we have no other options but to put him in school, right around the corner from the house. I feel right now God has His hand on the situation and His Will is in place! What is to happen from this day forward, we don't know, but I do know that I, as Will's mother has to be nothing but positive and supportive to this HUGE chapter in his life and our families life! Luke will also be going to preschool, we are all super excited for both of our boys! Y'all are the light of our lives!

Below is a picture of Will.... do you notice anything different??? (HE LOST HIS FIRST TOOTH!) I mean, talk about a double wamie... not only is he starting Kindergarten, he lost his first tooth too! I think he's the cutest snaggle tooth kid I've ever seen, but that's just my opinion :)

Love y'all and have a blessed day!!!
