Memorial Day!

Daddy and Pa showing Hay how to feed the birds.
Hayden meets Daddy in the driveway when he gets home and they pull in the garage together.
Hayden and her baby are ready to go to White Bluff!
Still waiting on mom and dad.

Here are a few pics from Memorial Weekend. We went down to White Bluff, where Scott's parents live and had a great weekend. We got there Friday night and went to bed early. Saturday morning Scott played golf with his dad and Gloria, Hayden and I played outside all morning. The weather was beautiful. We got ready to leave for Maryn's birthday party and the rain poured down. When we got to Cleburne we opened presents, went out to dinner and then came back and ate cake. We headed back to White Bluff that evening and once again were beat and headed to bed early. Sunday was another beautiful day and the guys played golf. We ate every meal outside on the patio and had our morning coffee out there while Hayden played. Sunday I think we never left the patio and the T.V. was never turned on (which with hubby's and father in laws is a blessing). Gloira made chicken fajitas and all the fixins for Sunday dinner and it was awesome. We ended up leaving Sunday night late so that we could be home on Monday and spend some time in our own yard. Hayden, Nana, and I ended up shopping all day but "hey" that works too. Enjoy!

Baby Boy!

Ok, so we have decided on a name for baby boy. There was much debate and we really did not agree on any other name but this one, which we both love. It is going to be Jackson Daniel and we are going to call him Jack. We both love the name Jack and wanted him to for sure be called Jack. For obvious reasons we are not going to name him Jack Daniel and when we thought about reversing it and calling him Daniel Jack then we will have to forever explain "but he goes by his middle name Jack". So Jackson it is! Daniel is Scott's middle name so we really wanted to use it and Jack was his grandfathers name. We are very excited now to get to call him something and it feels real now. We are very excited to meet our little man Jack.

It's a...

BOY! Yay, we are so excited. I am still in shock and can't hardly believe it. Scott, my mom and Hayden all came with me and we were screaming in the sono room. My doctor does all his own sono's so he is 100% sure it's a boy. You could clearly tell it was a little boy too, his daddy is so proud. Everything looks great and the baby is measuring right on time and all parts and organs looked good. I had my quad screen too, so we will have the results on those in a few days. The baby was moving like crazy and had his legs crossed at first but after some cohersing we got him to open up and there it was. We are thrilled and feel so complete. We aren't 100% sure on the name yet but I will post as soon as we decide. We have it narrowed down to a few and Daniel will for sure be the middle name after his daddy's middle name but we are still undecided on the first. We will decide for sure very quick and I will let you all know. So happy and blessed!

Busy week!

This week is going to be very busy and exciting! Tomorrow is the big appointment. We hopefully get to find out if this peanut is a boy or a girl. I will be 17 weeks and 4 days so hopefully everything will cooperate and the parts will be big enough and visible. We can't wait. Scott is taking the day off tomorrow to do some things around the house and work outside. My mom is taking off and going with us and of course Hayden Kate. Big sister has to be there. Wish us luck! I am working half a shift Thursday and then Friday we are headed down to Lake Whitney to spend Memorial weekend with the Tennison's. Can't wait because it is supposed to be a beautiful week and weekend so we can enjoy some time outside and Hayden can play and maybe even swim in her kiddie pool. Saturday we will go to Cleburne for our niece Maryn's 4th birthday party. It is a movie party so that should be pretty fun. I doubt Hay will sit through a movie but it will be fun anyway. I know my sweet hubby is thrilled because he can hopefully play golf Sunday. Every time he has tried to play this spring it has rained or he has had Hayden that day or something. I am so excited for him. He needs some man time to unwind and destress. The girls will probably just hang out outside and on the patio and enjoy the weather. Wish I could have a glass of wine with ya Gloria! Next spring! We'll come home Monday probably and start the week over again. I will post tomorrow after the big sono! Stay tuned!

Just a regular day!

She was watching Mickey in the car and wouldn't look at the camera.
Her piggies are finally long enough that all her hair stays up in them.
She was so excited to go Bye Bye!

Today Hayden and I had a big day planned. We got all cute and we were going to have lunch at our favorite Chick-fil-A, I try to take here there once a week for lunch. Then we were going to go to Blockbuster and get movies for the weekend and then go grocery shopping. We got all ready and headed out to the car and as soon as I opened the garage door we noticed it was pouring down rain. WHAT? I don't know where it came from or that it was even supposed to rain. Needless to say, grocery shopping and getting a toddler in and out of a car while raining is no fun and not worth it. We loaded up anyway because at this point she was way to excited to stay home. We hit Blockbuster first and quickly ran in the whole time her saying "Wet Mommy, Raining." I said I know and we hurried in, picked out our movies and headed out. Then I decided we would drive through Chick so we could have lunch at home. Not as much fun but she still enjoys it. We drove through and got our food and headed home. Bummer when your plans get screwed. Scott is so sweet and said he would go with us to the store when he gets home. Such a good hubby and it will be so nice to have the help with wild woman. Here's a couple pics from cutie pie today!

Mother's Day!

I had a wonderful second mother's day. Saturday my mother and father in law came in to town so we could take her out for a mother's day celebration. We went to lunch at Gloria and I's favorite Abuelo's. It was so yummy! Hayden is such a good girl when we go out to eat. She may make a mess with her food, but she loves to go out and see people and talk to the waitresses. So cute! We had a really good time. We did a little shopping in the Highlands and hung out at the house for the rest of the afternoon. I had a wedding to go to that night so I left and Daddy was left to babysit. Sunday Scott cooked a really really good brisquit on the smoker and we had my parents over, my grandparents, both my brothers and my soon to be sis in law. We had bbq and all the fixins. It was so much fun just hanging out at the house and enjoying everybodys company. Hayden (Scott) got me a beautiful bouquet of tulips, which are one of my fav. She also made a cute card with Nana that had her handprints on it and said Happy Mother's Day and I love you. So cute, I wanted to cry! My Mimi gave me a pretty hanging basket with flowers in it. It was a wonderful day and I am truly blessed to be Hayden's mommy. Can't wait until next year when I have two to celebrate.

This was Miss Priss before we went to lunch Saturday with Grammy and Pa. Grammy's new name is Bubbles. I know it is hilarious but Hayden calls her that and there is no changing it so she if forever known as Bubbles. Long story how that came about.

Random Pics!

There hasn't been a whole lot to update on lately. Even though Hayden and this new baby are the most important things going on in our lives, there hasn't been much going on with either. The weather has been icky so not many outings and with the swine flu scare I really don't mind staying home. We won't find out until May 19 what the new baby is so until then kind of in limbo. Can't wait to know and get to pick out a name and decorate a nursery again. It was so much fun, not to mention a lot of work, decorating Hayden's room and I can't wait to do it again. I have a very dear friend that made Hayden's bedding and she has volunteered to make this one too. So when we find out we can go and pick out fabrics and get started. She has several things to make so I really appreciate her taking time for us. She does beautiful work and it is so special. Here are some pics of Hayden throughout the last couple of weeks. We went to the park with Papa one day and then the rest are of her goofing around the house.

Being silly!
Hayden and Papa watching the ducks and I'm sure having a life lesson :) So sweet!
Hayden and Papa were feeding the squirrels french fries.
There was one squirrel that was eating the french fries out of Papa's hand. She loved it, she wouldn't hand feed them though she would throw the food at them. They got so close it was kind of creepy.
In her wagon ride around the lake. Little Princess!
This was in the car to go pick up Papa. She was so excited when she saw him and when he was loading her wagon in the car.
