Happies and Crappies




Scissors and a Whisk: Happies and Crappies Link Up


Holy cow! 3 weeks have passed since I've posted Happies & Crappies. I think about it weekly, I'm just too tired at the end of the week to actually type anything. So maybe this edition will include 3 weeks of Happies & Crappies.

Happies

* Reese got into the Speech study at the University! Yahoo! We've had 4 sessions now. I absolutely love spending that one-on-one time with her. We have a 45 minute session twice a week and afterwards we have a quick lunch and maybe a little shopping. I typically regret the shopping. Here's why...

But, oh my, does this girl make me laugh & smile. What would I have done had she not surprised us 2 years ago?

* Brian & I celebrated 9 years of marriage. Wowzers! Where has the time gone? We actually didn't celebrate it together since Brian was out of town most of that day. He did come home late-ish and surprised me with a bouquet of tulips. I didn't even get him a card! I'm terrible.

* I took a day off and spent it with Jaxon on his last preschool field trip. sniff sniff. We had a great time together. Of course we snuck in a little Pei Wei and Target after!



* We went on a double date with Brian & Ami to celebrate our anniversary and Ami's birthday, it was our Happy Birth-aversary-day!

* Ms. Courtney came to Jaxon's tee-ball game. I have NEVER seen him smile so big when he saw her. He loves her so much. What are we ever going to do without her next year? Good thing she has become a friend, we'll have to do lots of Target dates and BBQs over here. He did declare she is part of our family...

* Brian & I took Jaxon to the County Fair. We had a blast. Jaxon was tall enough & patient enough to ride the rides, well, the kiddie ones. Those were perfect for Mom & Dad too.


* Piggies are a common place around our house now. 

Crappies

* Brian has been out of town... a lot. It's been rough. I'm up at 4:30am and can't seem to get in bed before 10:00pm. I'm no good with less than 7-8 hours of sleep. Hence, the exhausted mom and no Happies & Crappies consistently. It's a happy when he comes home and both kids absolutely light up. Especially Reesey. She's such a Daddy's Girl.

* In the last 2 weeks I think we've only eaten dinner together 3 times. I hate that. 

* Reese is sick. Again. Ugh. At least it's not an ear infection or a cough. So is that a happy?

* Jaxon will be 5 next week. It's really a happy, but I'm so sad to have a big boy. There's something that hurts my heart knowing he's making a big transition in his life.

* Jaxon has his first loose tooth. Again, might me a happy, but I'm not ready for all of this big boy-ness.

* I'm a driving fool. I hate driving.

I'm so glad I'm part of the family. I also understand missing your hubby when they travel. Especially dinner. I hate when Matt and I have busy weeks and can't eat dinner together. I'm glad you returned to happies and crappies!!
