LIfe in A Nutshell....

Free entertainment. A friend of mine gave me these baskets in an effort to de-cludder her house and Paxton and Mackey think they are their boats. Fun times until someone gets hurt...usually Mackey.
Look at that BELLY. We pray Mac has great metabolism because she is an endless food eater. After a good meal her stomach is ridiculous.
The lovely table that sent us to the ER. Mackey has the tendency to cheat wearing the glasses and the patch and then falls everywhere since she can't see out of the bad eye. This week she bit through her tongue. It was horrible. I assumed she was fine but since I did not know exactly what she hit thoughts of internal injury landed us in the McKinney ER for about 3 hours.

"Buckley" or "Buc-Buc"

Tickle Tickle, Paxton loves to let the cat tickle his face.

Mackey in her church clothes, we are so excited about the expensive contacts because we miss seeing her beautiful face...and there being no glare on the glasses.

These last few weeks have been a whirlwind so I am going to re-cap with pics and lists.

1.) We got a new cat...I know it's crazy since the last one I had to return 2 days later to the pound. This one is mature and we have a great relationship. "Buckley" the cat is SO patient with the kids and lets them do whatever...literally!!! He is a lot nicer than I would be:)

2.) Mackey had another Dr. appt and she still has a "crazy" eye...BUT we are getting contacts. This afternoon I talked GG into going with us to babysit Paxton while Mac and I went to learn how to put the contact in. Things were not successful and instead of the $60 per 6 months we are now getting "custom" contacts which only cost $250 every 4 months.:) I just smiled and said of course.

3.)Paxton still cries all the way through swim lessons. He told me this week. "I do not scoop", "I do not kick", and "I do not get my head wet". He means every word!! Poor young swim teacher.

4.)This weekend the Melissa Cardinals take on the Anna Coyotes for a spot in the play-offs and we love going with all of our friends to root them on.

5.) It makes me whell up with joy to hear Paxton singing "Jesus loves me", "My God is so Big", and making sure that every night he reads his "bible study". It is unbelievable that children at 2 years can grasp a concept like Jesus. In this crazy world Paxton and Mackey "get God".

6.)HadleyMac was featured on the Dallas Trendy moms website and I am in the process of maybe selling to a booth at the Dallas World Trade Center. I also got a lady who is sewing my ideas for me which relieves stress.

I have really been exhausted from all the doctor hopping and swim lessons lately but have completely enjoyed Paxton and Mackey. They become your best friends when you are a stay at home mom. They are best friends. Paxton is my high maintenance, loveable, sensitive child. He is the one that is talking have to be very careful what you say. I realized that I had to stop saying crap when he stood at the play closet and said, "look at all this crap". He loves to hug and tell you how much he loves you...which is very sweet right after he has caused bodily harm to Mackey. Mackey on the other hand is VERY sweet. She has really started loving her mommy, which of course I know soon she will realize how great her father is, so I am taking advantage of all the attention. She is so kind, makes you work for a smile, and calm natured. She loves her big brother and gets in a tizzy when he takes something from her or is eating something that she is not.

Congrats on the HadleyMac. That's awesome.

I love seeing the 2 of them playing together. What a great relationship they have already!

Clay said... is funny how you can still make me laugh. Paxton saying "Look at all of this crap" made me laugh out loud. (I need to get out more, huh?) Sounds like our boys would have an intense time together!
I'm excited for you with HadleyMac...where did the name come from?

I love that Paxton said "look at all this crap" (This may be why I am not a Mom) But i laughed out loud! And of course your kids are adorable as always!
