My Son!

Beckham is getting so tall! Tall enough that he managed to get this box of TEDDY GRAHAMS off the dining room table and went to eating really quickly before they were taken away. But I had to get a few pics first, of course!

This is a box that a set of Baby Einstein DVD's came in. He got his tiny hiny stuck in it, and of course I had couldn't pass up this photo op!

These are his new curls that have grown in the last few weeks. TOO CUTE!!

And this is Beckham looking under the gate at something he really wants, but can't quite figure out how to get underneath the gate to get it.

Memorial Day!!!

First let me start by saying a BIG thanks to all the service men and women. Without them, we couldn't celebrate the freedom we enjoy in the great USA!

So there's not many things that beat a 3 day weekend, especially when I get to spend it with my hubby and son. We started out by taking Beckham to PETER PIPER PIZZA in Friday. Each time we do something like this, we realize that he is still a little to young for most of the games, but he still has fun walking around and eating pizza, so it's worth it. Then Saturday, Josh worked on the lawn most of the afternoon while Beckham and I played. Then we went to church that night. Afterward we got to enjoy an awesome CHEESECAKE FACTORY dinner with the Mullins and the Galyeans! I love it when I can go out to eat with friends AND my son is so well behaved! Being it was about 2 hours past his bedtime when we left, Beckham was a champ! FUN!!!

Then we just lounged around and relaxed. BUT Sunday night Josh and I decided we would camp out in the backyard!

Here's our tent. We had never used it before, and it was such a great night we figured why not?? Well, we got the tent all up, put Beckham to bed and headed out to the backyard for the night. We took the portable DVD player out there and watched a movie. The breeze was great, not too hot, not too cold. About 20 minutes after being outside Buddy started barking and we couldn't figure out why, until we looked up in the sky. There were FIREWORKS!! Yep, there was a concert going on about 2 miles down the road complete with a fireworks show! We had a PERFECT view. It was so fun. But the fun was over pretty quickly. I didn't realize that our backyard is really noisy at night! SO I lasted in the "great outdoors" until 12:30am and then went inside to the peace and quiet of my house. Josh and Buddy soon followed. I think we will save camping for the real great outdoors.

Monday, Josh's family came over and we played with Beckham and hung out a little a bit before starting another long work week. Overall all rating...I give it a 10!!

Here a couple pics of Beckham. He get's more and more fun as the days go on. He is saying so many new words. Today's word was "bike." My mother-n-law takes him for bike rides when he is with her, and he LOVES it! He told me all about it when I picked him up today. I love that little face!!!

Well, this Mother's Day was great! Josh had his last day at his old job on Thursday (praise the Lord!) so that left Friday wide open for me to spend with my 2 favorite boys in the whole world!! We went to run errands all morning. Then we ate lunch at GATTI TOWN in Frisco. Beckham had a blast!! He loves pizza and even though most of the games were still a little big for him, he loved the carousel and all the noise and lights of the arcade. I can't wait to take him when he's a little older. Then we went to the mall and walked around a little bit. Then we went to look at a couple of model homes. No, we aren't moving any time soon, we were just curious about this new neighborhood being built, so we stopped. Then Beckham and I went home. Beckham napped while Josh went to get him a little pool for the backyard. When he woke up....well the pictures explain it all!

Beckham can now open the doors in our house. It's his favorite new game!

Sliding down the slide in the pool!

Dont' adjust the color on your monitor, folks. Yes, he's THAT pale!! Poor baby!

Saturday we spent the day with my family in Ft. Worth. My nephew, Cal, is turning 8 years old on Tuesday, so we had the family b-day party. Then we all went to dinner to celebrate Mother's Day with my mom. It's great to be able to spend time with family. We were missing my sister and her family in Tennesse, so it wasn't quite complete, but we still had fun. Sunday was church , then a few errands, then lunch with my son and husband for Mother's Day. Overall, a WONDERFUL weekend!!

My sweet husband didn't disappoint on the gifts either. He bought a new lens for my camera, which ROCKS, and a gift card to Bath and Bodyworks. My mother-n-law surprised me by getting Beckham's picture taken a few weeks ago, and gave me the prints as my gift. PERFECT GIFT!!!

So Mother's day 2008 was great! I am mindful of all the mom's celebrating their first Mother's day and also those mom's who have lost children this year. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

This is another hand-me-down from my niece. Josh hung it up this afternoon and Beckham was more than happy to take it for a spin! Have you ever seen a happier little face??

The great outdoors!!

A couple of weeks ago, my sister gave Beckham a slide/swing combo thing for the backyard. It was my nieces and she had out grown it. It's really great to be the last one in the family to have kids. The hand-me-downs ROCK!! Well, needless to say Beckham LOVES it!! He is all over it. Thanks Aunt Jacque!
