Babies Don't Keep

Cleaning and scrubbing
can wait till tomorrow,
for babies grow up
we've learned to our sorrow.

So quiet down, cobwebs,
dust, go to sleep...
I'm rocking my baby
and babies don't keep

My mom used to have that poem hanging on the wall when we were growing up. I never really understood it until I had kids of my own. Boy, is it true. My kids are growing up so fast and its so scary. I was listening to Macy and Reid talk to each other in the car tonight and I couldn't believe that they were old enough to be carrying on such an adult conversation! HA... well, maybe not adult.......

Reid: "Macy, don't sing. You don't even know the words."
Macy: "Yes, I do Bubba....are you in charge?" "Mom can I take my shoes off?"
Reid: "No, said not now."
Macy: "I was telling Momma...I said are you in charge?"


Today was a great day! Reid got his test results back on a practice reading TAKS test...he made a 97!!!!!! I am so proud of him. He has really been working hard on his homework and trying to remember all the strategies that he has learned. He was so proud of himself, too.....When I picked him up from school he was beaming. We had to go celebrate with a special snack. He chose the conveinent store down the street....go figure. Cheap for me...a blue icee and a bag of mustard pretzels. YUMMY Now let's pray that the real test that is in Feb. will be as successful! I know it will be. Keep Reid in your prayers because for those that know him knows he is a worry wart (like his mama). He already has hives we don't need any other stress related skin irritations.

Well, its late and I have to still go fold some clothes. Reid informed me that all his jerseys were dirty and he had nothing to wear. Forget wearing normal clothes...the boy wears jerseys all week. He lays one out everynight so he will know exactly which one he will wear to school the next day. He is mister orzanized! And Macy informed me that her sparkly shirt was wet in the "washer thing" and she wants to wear it tomorrow.....she wears it every other day. There are nights when she sleeps in it. I'm too tired to argue.

Bye-Bye Naptime

Today is a sad day at the Sab's......I think Macy is finally done with naps! It has been about a week and she hasn't had a nap. :( I always loved that time when she was napping when I could just sit and recoup from the morning. I loved sitting and watching my soap or just listening to music. Sometimes I would do my Bible Study, drink coffee and pray that someone would not come and ring the doorbell and wake her up. Now, don't get me wrong....I love my time with my kids but there was just something about naptime that helped me to be a better Mommy for the rest of the evening.

Everyday after lunch is when she would usually go upstairs to lay down. Today she told me that she didn't need a nap because her happy face was in her pocket and she was fixing to put it on. HA..that girl is a hoot. The good thing about no naps is that she goes to bed alot easier at night. Last night while I was watching ER she came downstairs and got on my lap and fell right to sleep. I love that cuddle has been a long time that she has wanted me to pat her back and rock her. She thinks she is too big for that! :) So, if no naps mean more cuddle time well, then bring it on!

The night of the game Reid was so excited! He had waited for so long! He came down the stairs and had on EVERYTHING longhorn. He had on 3 hats, pillow, hand and used the extra shirt as a rally towel.....he is a hoot! It really was a great game...that Vince Young is amazing!

Here is Reid cheering on Vince Young.....he said he knew we were going to win! I don't even think he took a bathroom break from the exciting game. Reid and Troy were giving high fives and cheering....I was waiting for one of those chest hits that goofy guys do...HA :)

Macy's first field trip....her Mothers Day Out class went to the library! FUN FUN I got to go and and we all had such a good time. After the library we went to the park for a picnic! They loved that! They thought they were such big kids.... and Macy thought it was so cool that they all had on the same shirt...HA HA

My sweeties on Christmas Day. I begged for a picture before church! One day they will be glad I took it!

Fun times in 2005

Here are some World Series Pictures that I have been wanting to post forever! I think I have finally figured out how to do the pic thing....I guess we will see. :)

This is Troy and Reid before the game. They were so excited I could hardly get them to pose for a picture. I don't know who was more excited...

I thought Troy did a great job taking pictures! I just figured only a Mom would think about having him pose with the sign...WAY TO GO DAD! By the way, this was taken about 3 hours before the game! HA They left the house at about 4:00 and the game didn't start till 7:00....silly boys! Oh well...they got to see ALL the pre-game.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!! I thought this was a cool picture.

I was also proud of Troy to ask someone to take a picture of them.....that was really stepping out of his comfort zone! HA This was before the rally hats!!


They had a great time....even though we lost and they didn't get home till about 3 in the morning. Reid still talks about it and how that was one of the latest he has ever stayed up! He even got to skip school the next day! What a memory!

Happy New Year Everyone.......

I'm not too sure what to write....2006 is here and so far so good. Christmas was great. It was another year of fun, laughs, family, food, food, food and more food. The kids had a blast and again got WAY too much stuff. Macy was so excited about her barbie Cinderella and the Prince and Reid hasn't stopped playing with his PSP or wearing his Texas Jersery. They also got so much fun stuff from everyone and at times they don't know what to play with next. Reid has had fun putting all his baseball cards in order. He is all about organization! Every year I think how lucky we all are to get to spend Christmas together and have so much fun as a family. It is something I look forward to all year. I love being with parents, sis, sis in law, bro, bro in law, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and now more little cousins! We are a blessed family.
Yesterday I spent most of the day straightening the kids rooms. It looked like a bomb went off in there. We threw out some old stuff to put in the new stuff. That is always hard for them to do. I am thinking that I might have a garage sale. I don't know. I always bust my hiney to have one and then I only make about 20 bucks. I guess my stuff really is junk! HA So, today they are having fun in their clean rooms, playing with all their Christmas. What a sweet memory...I love hearing them talk to their toys. :)
My Christmas lights and decorations are all still up. That is next on my list. I am thinking I might wait until they go to school so I can do it without any know the kind of help that takes you twice as long. Anyone want to come and help?? :)
