Western Hoedown

The Western Hoedown is one of the big events at Ashton's school for the Spring!  The girls had so much fun riding a bull, doing the donut (not cake) walk, eating junk food and riding a horse! The horse rides, bounce house & rock climbing wall would have been much more fun if that darn cold front hadn't hit that day!  Oh well. We had a good time, and Ashton even wore jeans after I convinced her that leggings are not exactly Western!

I still can't believe that Ashton is 6 years old today!!  Where does the time go?  She is getting so big and grown up!  Here are 6 things about my sweet girl!

1.  I can't believe that she is almost finished with Kindergarten (Didn't she JUST start?)!
2. She has her 1st loose tooth!!  (She  has only been waiting for this day for about a year!)
3. She loves crafts, watching movies, enjoys Daisies, playing outside and  enjoys playing with friends and her little sister!
4. She is about to play another season of soccer!
5. She is riding her bike without training wheels!!
6. She is doing awesome in school!!

We are very proud of the big girl that you have become, and we look forward to watching you grow in the years to come!!  I hope that you have a GREAT 6th birthday!!  We love you very much!!

Spring Break

We enjoyed our Spring Break to the fullest...2 birthday parties, dinner out & a sleepover with cousins (Jessica & Jordyn), a picnic at the park with friends for St Patrick's Day, bike riding, a little getaway to San Antonio (with Grammy, Aunt Julie, Isabelle & Makenna), a day at Sea World, a WILD trip through the Wildlife Ranch on the way back to Dallas, and sleeping until 8 instead of 6!!  The weather could not have been more perfect, and we really had a lot of FUN!! 
 We are just trying to recoup and get ready for another busy week!! 

A couple of "Thelma & Louise" shots!

Many Faces of Reese

Reese was sitting at the table playing with playdoh one day before school, and she was just so happy and making some of the funniest faces. That is when I remembered taking pictures of the many faces of Ashton at about this age, and I thought it would be fun to do the same with Reese! So, here are the many faces of Reese!

And she's off...

Ashton has been begging for us to take her training wheels off of her bike for while now.  So, Johnny finally took them off the weekend after Ashton had her tonsils removed. She was getting pretty stir crazy so he decided to let her ride around the garage while he worked on a project. Last Sunday, we finally got outside, and then she was off in no time!!  She seriously got on and never looked back! Johnny tried to hold the back of her bike, and she didn't want help!  She didn't need a bit of help. I guess it was time to let her go!!  We are very proud of you!!

Way to go, Ashton!!

I'm BACK...

After almost a month of not blogging, I am ready to get back to it!  It has been quite a month for our family, but I just know that things are only going to continue to get better from here on out! 

We have a lot to look forward to...Spring Break, Ashton's 6th Birthday and Party, my trip to Canton with the girls, our trip to the Masters, and Easter!  I am also ready to get BACK into SHAPE!  Johnny and I are heading to the Masters in Augusta, Georgia on April 8.  So, I am going to eat healthier and exercise in order to lose 5 pounds by then!! Gotta get that out there to keep me motivated!!  I LOVE the way working out makes me feel...It is just tough to get back to it after taking such a LONG break!!   

Hope all of my blogging friends are doing well, and thank you for all of your e-mails, texts, phone calls, care packages and PRAYERS!!  It really did make me happy to see all of the support from my friends and family!! We are on the mend...THANK GOODNESS!!
