Family: First softball game of the season

4 May

Zoey had her first game tonight.  We played the Normangee Panthers and won 7 to 0.  Zoey made a hit and got a run.  She received her first sticker on her helmet.  The stickers are given out by the coach at the end of each game to every player who gets past second base.  The player with the most stickers at the end of the season is awarded a prize.

Our next game is Thursday at home.

Go Cougars!

Out of pocket the next week or two…

I am having surgery today and will be recovering for the next few weeks.  Thus, the blog will be somewhat silent for a little while.

I can’t wait to get back and post some great recipes and Easter ideas.

See you soon!

PS:  Spring is coming quick here in Texas.  Our state flower, the bluebonnet, is popping out all over…

Family: Movie day with Nana

18 Mar

The girls are on spring break this week so Nana took them to see a movie.  They saw Mars Needs Moms and loved it!  They can’t wait for it to come out on DVD so we can watch it for family movie night.

Happy St. Patrick’s day!

Took some time off, but now I am back….

It has been so crazy around here with school, sports and such!  I had to take some time off from blogging to catch up.  I have still been cooking and baking and will be sharing some new recipes soon!Photobucket

Family: School and County Science Fair

25 Nov

Last week, my girls competed in their school science fair.  Abby grew mold on bread.  Zoey created an eco-system in a bottle and Hailey grew bean plants using different liquids.  All three girls placed.  Abby took 3rd place, Zoey took 4th place and Hailey 5th.  Because they placed, all three moved on to the county science fair the following week.  The county science fair included all three schools in our county.  Abby and Zoey both placed in their grade level.  Abby placed 9th and Zoey placed 7th.  Although Hailey did not place, I am happy that she was able to complete her board.  She was extremely ill and had a high fever during the time we worked on the boards.  And although she didn’t feel good she managed to persevere and complete her board.  She is disappointed that she didn’t place, but happy for her sisters. 

Because Abby and Zoey placed in the top ten of their grade level, they get to go on a field trip to the Museum of Natural Science in Houston next month.  They are so excited but nervous to go without their big sister.  I think they will be fine once they are on the bus and on their way.

Way to go girls!  Mommy and Daddy are so proud of all three of you!
