Senior Party, Bikes & Swimming

A lot has been happening at the Woods house lately! And the reason I actually am getting to blog is because I'm home from work with a sick kid. Autumn got sick on me this morning so we stayed home and she is sleeping now while Montana and I are goofing off (& blogging)!

We had a Senior Party for Michele @ our house about a week and a half ago. We had a lot of fun and so did the girls! Montana became attached to a girl she's never really seen before. Thank you Candace for being so sweet to Montana! We are trying to teach Montana to ride her bike, so that Autumn can have the tricyle. This past weekend I finally set up the pool that Joycelyn bought Montana for her birthday, and they had so much fun! We attended a friends wedding and reception on Saturday and the one picture I took of Montana and a little boy named Brady- my flash didn't go off! Bummer!

My suburban has been in the shop all week trying to figure out what is wrong with it. As of right now, they think it is an electronic module. I don't know car talk, but I'm sure it's gonna get expensive! We are planning to go to the State Track Meet in Austin next weekend to watch Tara (Levi's cousin) throw the discus. She got 1st at regionals and has a good chance at state. It will be a quick trip though, we will leave on Friday and come back Saturday. Then our summer really gets busy- swimming birthday party, swimming lessons for 2 weeks, and a family cookout. June makes me tired when I look at the calendar and see all the writing on it! LOL

Until next time, have a great weekend!!!

Titus 2 Tuesday

Since I skipped last week's Titus 2 Tuesday, I will play catch up today. In today's day and time everyone is extremely busy and that makes it even harder to stay in touch with friends. These 5 ladies have became my friends throughout the years, we've all went separate ways, but I still manage to stay in touch with them somehow. Some I've been friends with since junior high, high school or even within the last year. No matter the length of time, I treasure each one of them and am proud to call them my friend!!

In no particular order:

SHERI, is my sister-n-law, and I have known her for just a little over a year now. From the minute my brother introduced us I knew we could be friends. My girls have grown to love her so much (I think more than Todd-LOL), and we have grown to love her kids- David & Caelyn. I think she is the perfect match for Todd and that they will happy together. We live 2 1/2 hrs apart, but we still talk on the computer and by phone. I would love to see her more, but I know I can call her anytime and she would be here!! Thank you Sheri for not only being my sister-n-law, but also my friend! Luv ya girl!

CHEYENNE, is a friend I graduated with. She moved to Crowell our sophomore year and we became friends from the start! We have so many stories! While in college, I stayed with her a lot in WF when I had tests. She was my maid of honor 7 yrs ago (next month) and she is still one of my dearest friends. I have been there when her Mom died of cancer, when her Dad died of a heart-attack, when she got married, and just 4 months ago when she became a Mom to the most precious little girl- Addison. My girls LOVE their cousin!!! I haven't met a stronger, more courageous person!! Cheyenne, you are my inspiration and I would do anything for you! Thank you for being you and for being my friend!!!

LACEY, has been my friend since I moved to Crowell in 8th grade. We became friends b/c our Mom's worked together, and evern though she is 3 yrs younger we have stayed friends. As of today, I think we are better friends then ever before b/c we are in the same stage of life now! In January, she got married and Montana and I got to be part of the wedding! She was also in my wedding (when she was only a sophomore)!! LOL I don't get to see her as much now days as I would like, but we always talk on the computer and phone. One day she will have kids and I will get to be there for that- I'm very thankful! Thank you Lacey for being part of my life, even though we weren't always in the same stage of life! And thanks for being my friend!

BELINDA, has became my friend over the past year. I have known her and her family since we started attending church at North Groesbeck, but within the past year have became better friends. She had a miscarriage during the time I was pregnant with Autumn. At this time we were just church friends. Sometimes I feel that she may be sad when she looks at Autumn and thinks about her "Emma" but maybe that is why God made my girls love Belinda so much b/c let me tell you- Montana lives to see Belinda!!! We really started hanging out when I started going to the gym and she is my inspiration to keep going!!! Levi loves to pick on her 2 boys, and Matthew picks back at him. Therefore, I feel our families have came together and I am so thankful that God brought Belinda into my life!!! Thank you for being my friend and for loving my girls because they LOVE you!

LACY, I have known her since I moved to Crowell in the 8th grade. We were in horse club together and had the same interests. Throughout high school, we hung out a lot (especially at my house- she didn't ever want to go to her house LOL), and I witnessed her getting married and having 4 babies in 3 years (YES you heard me right)!!! Her husband Ty was in a major horse accident that put him in the hospital in Lubbock for a long time, and then after he came home his appendix ruptured and had been that way for 11 days so they were back in Lubbock. During this time her house caught fire through the electrical outlets and burnt the TV's up and ruint all their meat in the freezer. Despite this hardship all in 1 YEAR, she has stood strong and taken care of her family! Not once have I heard her complain- she just does it! Lacy, I admire you and envy you- I wish I was more like you!! Thank you for being my friend all these years!!!

I have so many other woman that have impacted me, but it will have to wait until next weeks edition!

Mini Spa Day

Yesterday when Montana woke up around 8:30am, I told her that we would paint her finger nails and toe nails before Autumn woke up. After I took the old polish off and trimmed them, I told her that I was going to check on Sissy before we started. Well, Autumn was sitting straight up in the bed, so she literally laid on my leg while I was painting Montana's nails. When I was done with her, she stood up off her stool and was talking to me. When I turned around Autumn was sitting on the stool holding her foot up for me to paint her toe nails (for the 1st time). I got them painted, but had to hold them up off the floor until they dried and she was gone to play as soon as I got done. I still can't believe she sat there that long. Needless to say, I had to get a picture.

*Please Note* This picture was about the 3rd one I took b/c Autumn just couldn't leave her feet still. You just gotta love a 19 month old!!! So I guess you can say we had a Mini Spa Day @ our house yesterday!! Have a great Sunday!

Horses & Parade

We have been very busy this week with a lot of extra stuff like riding horses, going to a parade, and seeing Hannah Montana at the theater. On Tuesday night, we saddled our 2 older horses and went for a ride which was ended shortly after b/c of the clouds rolling in. Montana loves to ride Snoopy (my horse), but I think the saddle hurts her when she is on with me. Needless to say, we need a saddle for her and another horse, but that's just more $$ so we're trying to make due. Autumn LOVES riding with Levi or me, and screams when she has to get off. She is definately my animal lover. She is so good with our dogs, and they let her do anything to them!

Wednesday was the Santa Rosa Parade in Vernon. We just watched while Levi rode b/c that is the longest parade and I was worried about the girls getting too tired & HOT before the end of it. Levi is the Riding Club President so he really wanted us to ride, but just didn't happen this time. On Thursday we got to see Hannah Montana at the Ritz in Wellington. I think Levi and I liked it more than Montana. I think she is still a bit too young for a movie, but she still did so good and enjoyed singing to the songs! And thanks to my Aunt Sue who watched Autumn while we were at the movie.

Well, this morning I have already been to United to get some things before Levi left for work (I didn't want to have to drag the girls), and have done a couple loads of laundry. I sure wish I could sleep on Saturdays every now and then, yet this is when I get a ton done- that is before 8:30am!

Have a great weekend & enjoy the pictures!!

My sweet girls

B-day Party & Girl's Bathroom

We had Montana's 3rd birthday party last Sunday @ Cotton & Kim's barn due to the rain. She's had 3 birthdays and 2 out of 3 have been at the barn due to the weather. This time of year is so unpredictible. Montana had a blast and enjoyed everyone being there!

We have finished the girl's bathroom. I only like a few things to hang up. I am waiting on the towels that I am getting their name put on, so it's not all done, but close enough. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! I plan on enjoying today at home with Levi and the girls! I want to clean out the girl's room (toys galore), but I'll just do what I want and enjoy just hanging out with the family at home. We'll see what I get done! :)

Montana's 3rd Birthday Party

It took her 3x to blow out all 3 candles!! :)

Some Pinata fun

It is so hard to take good pics in a bathroom with the mirror reflection

I love this sign

These hair bow holders just add to the cuteness of a little girls bathroom decor

This star was the perfect addition to the decor
