guard dog

This was just one of the scary nights we had last week when we had to take cover from the tornadoes.You can'ts see Hemi but he is right under the floral pillow snuggled up in my lap. He knows exactly what to do when we rush to our safe spot.
Then one night we all went up to mom's house to stay together so we could all be prepared for the tornadoes. Hemi loves to guard Joss when he's around her. He checks everyone out that even gets close to her to make sure they are "ok." ha He sat in my lap the ENTIRE time I held her that night, so sweet! I kinda thought Lyla would have been the "protection guard dog" with Josslyn (since she has poodle in her) but she could have really cared less. Mema had a poodle when Lynlea and I were both little and she guarded us.

1st year together

Last weekend we celebrated our 1st Anniversary! We had a pretty low key weekend, we didn't have anything planned. ha! We wanted to take a trip but decided not to since Lynlea was due on the 19th (right before our anni). Next year we are definately going somewhere!!!! After church and lunch at Noodles with dad we ran a few errands and then actually ate dinner at Market Place. Bad weather was coming in that night so we made it a quick dinner so we could be safe at home.
My beautiful bouquet of flowers~ 
Our cake exactly one year later...weird. 
It wasn't that bad, it just wasn't that great. We joked around saying we may have to eat our cake in the bathroom aka "Our Safe Spot" from the tornadoes.  
Wes is notorious for wrapping all my gifts crazy to try and trick me! So this is how my new coach purfume was wrapped up in a shoe box. 
He also got me a new Hobo purse and wallet....he did so good b/c I didn't ask for this! I LOVE IT! 

It's crazy that we have been married a year already. Sometimes it still seems like I should be getting all my stuff ready for my wedding. HA

We have had such bad weather lately, it's actually been pretty scary. Joplin got hit so scary & sad. They are sooo close to us and Allison's hometown. It's sooo real when it's so close to home, I hate it for that town. This was the road on the way to mom's house...flooded.
The pond couldn't hold any more water, it had overflowed into the road. 
They alwasy have to close down the roads leading into mom's neighborhood. They get so flooded!!! 
Her retention pond in the neighborhood...crazy. 
Another pic of the same thing. 
Mom's backyard!  
Wes had to get a pump and pump all the water out and into the street.  
It had gotten so deep this time it was almost up to her back door. 

Pumping it to the front of the house and into the street!
They pumped for hours non stop. No telling how much water they actually pumped out.

moooooo is for COW

After the crawfish boil we loaded up in the truck and on 4-wheelers to go see all the new babies. That truck was loaded down, ha.
Oh Hudson LOVES to ride
I don't like to get too close, they kinda freak me out. I know they are 'pretty' nice and friendly but STILL.
Newest baby

HAND FEEDING that huge bull

I wasn't about to go in there and pet that new bull...take a look at that momma.
Finished it off by celebrating Heath's birthday!

La Fiesta

A few weekends ago Wes and I went to my school's fundraiser...La Fiesta!
Ms. Cathy & Miguel 
Just some of the girls 
Ms. Tracy & Ms. Amber 
They had a live & silent auction, 2 bands, all you can eat/drink, and dancing all night long. Some of the cool auction items from some of the parents were Custom made Harley Davidson, Private jet to the Ark vs Alabama game for 8, Wine tasteing party for 30 guests, ALL kinds of gift cards, Coach purses, kid bday parties, etc. Each class made their own basket with donations from the class parents. Some of those were IPad, 3 Day trip to Big Cedar, Gift Card basket, Digital camera with all the accessories, and tons more. Some of the baskets were worth $500-1500 dollars and went for double the value. The teachers participate in a "gift of time" donation for the parents to bid on for thier child. Mine was pedicures with Ms. Haley OR Gatorgolf and dinner at Chick fil A! Some others were lock in at the school for 15 friends, gold lessons, dinner at Shoguns, Ice cream date, dinner in the park & play, Movie date, etc. These go for crazy amounts too....I think the highest one I saw was $600 for the lock in! I'm taking my little girl Wednesday after school!!!

New Ride

Well it was finally time for me to get a new car. Wes and I have been talking about it for a few months but we just haven't ever seriously looked until last Sunday! I loved my old car, she was soooo good to me. My first car when I was a senior in high school, I got her brand new. Laci had spent the night and we were both sleeping in when mom came down stairs to wake us to CARRY IN GROCERIES...what? I was grumpy. I couldn't believe she woke us up to help. Laci jumped right up and started helping, it took me a little longer. When we went outside to help there she was...with balloons and window paintings allllllll over it. SO FUN!!! (I guess waking up early for groceries was worth it, ha)
My new ride...Chevy Traverse. Honestly, I've never noticed these before on the road or knew anything about them until we started researching. I though I KNEW what I wanted...Highlander or Enclave until I drove and saw this. I love it!!!! Extra bonus is it has the 3rd row seating and STILL has a trunk!

Luke was terrified of this little animal that moved it's mouth. He grabbed his face and said "oooooh" the first time he saw then he hid his face. Here he's still not sure, standing BEHIND his momma checking things out. 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCARLETT RAE! I can't believe she is already ONE...seems like yesterday I was planning her baby shower and waiting to hear what name they chose.
