Our 8yr Anniversary!

Been busy around here lately!  

Mark has been out of town since Sunday morning, was supposed to be back Monday night possibly Tues...which then turned into Tues Wed and possibly Thursday.  The boys miss him so much, can't wait for him to get back.  

Saturday was our 8yr anniversary!!!!  Can't believe it's been that long!  Loved every minute of it...ok just about :)  We weren't able to go out alone but that's ok.  He wanted to make sure he spent all of Saturday with the boys since he'd be going out of town.  He did let me sleep in then I got up and took a long bath, got everyone ready and we went to the farmer's market here in downtown, first time going and it was pretty nice.  We went close to closing time so a lot of booths had already shut down but we did get some delicious peaches, 6 big ones for $5.  And then there is an Amish family that has a booth that they sell baked goods, we bought some cinnamon raisin bread that was really good!  Going to get another loaf and try some other stuff this week.  Loved the ingredient list on there, a total of maybe 7 things, all natural things too!  Soo yummy.  After that we met Gail for lunch then went to Kohls to convince the boys they didn't want the black hi top converse we bought them for school the week before lol.  They finally agreed and then we went in and they had Cat in the Hat hi top Converse and it was all over, they weren't budging.  Luckily they look really cute in them so it's ok :)

                                                Casen showing off his shoes

They love them!  Landon and Casen both got the same ones, of course.  We had bought Hayden these One Fish Two Fish ones but he decided he liked another pair better, plus these weren't going with as much as we had hoped so we exchanged them that day too

This was his old pair Seuss/717679F

And here are his new ones....

Also at Kohls we got started on some back to school clothes shopping.  Can't believe Casen will be starting kindergarten this year and Landon 2nd grade!  We got them each 4 shirts, Casen 2 prs of shorts and Landon 1pr of shorts.  Not a bad start :)  I have already picked the rest that I want for them, just need to go online and order it or go to the stores, well if I can so I don't have to wait for shipping!  Love shopping :D  

After Kohls we stopped at Dairy Queen on the way home and got the boys some ice cream. 

When we got home the boys new booster seats were waiting for us yay!!!!  So in the hot ass Texas heat I rearranged their car seats :D  Casen is so happy to move into a booster, he feels like a big kid now, and we got Landon a better and more comfortable booster so he's happy.  Hayden is also back RF which makes ME happy!  

The new set up

Great lap belt fit!  Not on his stomach at all, just high on his thighs

So happy to try out his new seat!  He just BARELY makes the weight, 40lbs, he was 41lbs fully dressed when I weighed him after the pics, but he varies from 38-40lbs without shoes depending on the day.  Gotta move the head rest down from this pic though

Landon trying out his new seat, listening to his iPhone, feel like I have a teenager already lol

Great lap belt fit on him too, he's 49-51lbs depending on the day and his clothes and shoes, 7yrs as of April

Not on his stomach

They watched a movie with Daddy and played some before bed.  We had been telling them about him going out of town but when he was putting them down that night he was talking to them about it some more and Landon was holding back tears, very upset that he was leaving.  Then Casen says "stop it! stop it daddy!  You're making me sad" and .2 seconds later he burst into tears :(  Landon "sucked it up" and set aside how he was feeling to comfort Casen and started talking all positive about it, how it wasn't that long and it would just be like Daddy was working late and leaving for work before they woke up.  Landon is such an amazing little boy and awesome big brother!  

All in all we had a wonderful anniversary, spent a great day together as a family, what more could I ask?   

Here's to another wonderful 8yrs and many many more after that!  Love you baby and can't wait for you to get home in a couple days!
