Livin' the Life...

Sundays on Brown

Bunk Beds

Valentine's Day
This week was Valentine's Day and the boys got lots of fun stuff!  Fisher got Monster Truck Tickets which we will be using on the 28th!  I cannot wait!  Sunday we put together the Bunk Bed and moved Nolan into Fisher's room for the time being until he wants to get out of the crib.  He loves the crib.  Fisher at this point was already in a big boy bed!  Sunday we had fun with the neighbors and ate crawfish!  Love where we live!!!

Balls, Birthdays & Beautiful Weather...

Ball Time

Happy Birthday in Heaven
Today is Doug's Birthday and I'm sure he is celebrating like it is 5 o'clock somewhere!  Miss that man!!!

This past weekend we had Eddie's ball and it was so much fun!  Theme was Party Down South and the band was Bag of Donuts!  They were awesome!  I danced so much I did not have time to drink that much!  What a fun ball with great friends!  Hoping to get more in next year!

Sunday we were able to hang outside and get some things cleaned up and the weather was beautiful!  I had to take pictures that night so no crawfish and beer but maybe next Sunday!!!  It's just that time of year!

We bought Fisher and Nolan bunk beds this weekend.  It was a deal we could not pass up!  Nolan is still not 100% ready to sleep in a regular bed but we are slowly breaking him in!  Here is the bed below and I cannot wait to get it up and get the playroom fully done!  Mom and I switched a lot of the things from one room to the other but once the bunk bed is up it will free up some room!  Just have to make sure that Nolan is ready! I know Fisher is ready!!!

It's Party Gras Ya'll...

We had our first parade of the Mardi Gras season and the boys LOVED it!  Nolan actually did not even take a nap until after the parade!  The weather was wonderful and the parade was great!  Sunday was Superbowl and we could really care less who wins if the Saints are not in it so we decided to have some people over and have a BBQ shrimp night!  It's my great grandmothers recipe and it is awesome!  We had some left over to make shrimp scampi last night!  Fisher has been down and out the past couple of days with the crud going around.  Some viral thing that we cannot do anything about except treat the symptoms.  Hoping he will be better by this weekend!  Eddie's ball is this Saturday so I'm excited about that!  Should be a good time!

Life is short...

We lost our friend to liver failure Saturday morning at 4:47am!  She passed away peacefully surrounded by friends and family! Please keep this family and friends in your prayers this week as we lay a good friend to rest!  It has been so surreal this past week to show that life is short!  We will miss that wonderful and contagious smile and laugh!  
(My Post from Facebook) I don't even know where to begin...Thanks for all the memories, laughs and cries throughout the years! As I watched all of us come together as a "family" last night I am reminded just how truly blessed my life is with such wonderful friends and family by my side! This is not goodbye Michele but a see you when I get there! Until then I have another beautiful angel watching over me! Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers...they mean the world to me! Hug your loved ones tight because you just never know...
"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” - Revelation 21;4

Crawfish, Cuts & Checkups...

Nolan's First Haircut

Doctor Checkups can be fun!

My Obsession!!!
This weekend was great with great weather to be outside thank goodness!  It's been a rainy cold week so it was nice to be able to get out!  Saturday I got the boys haircut.  I hated to cut Nolan's hair but he was looking like a girl so we had to do it!  He looks like a little man now!  Sunday we were able to hang out and clean out the shed!  Mom & Dad shared Fisher on Sunday so that helped!  We got Crawfish which was soooo good!  A little more pricey than what I wanted to pay but it was so worth it!  We took Fisher for a checkup to the doctor for his accidents and they are trying a new medication.  In the meantime I am looking for a psychologist to be able to get him to talk to!  Nothing new other than that!  I will also like to ask for some prayers for a sweet friend of mine that is going through a tough time right now!  Any prayers will be appreciated!  Another laid back weekend coming up then starts Mardi Gras season!  January 31st is the first parade in Ocean Springs!  Cannot wait!!!

Bonne Vivantes 2015

Christmas Morning


Engagement Party
So I have been behind.  Now that ball is over I will have some time to catch up and relax after the holidays and beginning a new year!  It has been a wonderful year filled with so many memories!  Cannot wait to see what 2015 brings!  So far so good!  Eddie is out of town this week for his class and to take his Master Tech class.  Hoping that he passes!  Nothing really big coming up except Mardi Gras!  First parade is January 31st!  Cannot wait!!!

Playing catchup - December 10th!!!


Egg Bowl

Christmas Minis

Lego Day

Loves Legos!!!
So I'm playing a little catch up here.  Sorry its been a crazy couple of months and busy at that!  I have been taking pictures each weekend and also doing mini sessions to earn some extra cash for Christmas!  Even though the boys don't need much... being off for 5 days is going to hurt!  Seems like we spend more money when we are off!  Thanksgiving was wonderful and so was Black Friday shopping with mom!  We were able to get all kinds of things that we needed and wanted!  The big gifts will wait until the week of Christmas before I buy that!  The Egg Bowl was a huge disappointment for MSU!  We did not play good at all but we had a great season and one more game!  We took Fisher to Lego Tour 2014 this past weekend and we had such a good time!  There was so much to do and I am glad that we took just him!  He does not get to enjoy a lot of things by himself anymore!  I promise to keep up with this a lot better.  Just crazy with 2 kids, 2 jobs and life in general!

Halloween Weekend & Peter Anderson!!!

Sunday Night...

Go Ninja, Go Ninja Go!!!

Love our Group of Friends!

Peter Anderson

Trunk or Treat
Weekend filled with fun!  Friday I took off and went to Fisher's Trunk or Treat at the High School!  Cute Idea and wish we did that in High School!  Friday Night we went Trick or Treating.  Dad stayed with Nolan so Fisher could enjoy himself with his friends and boy did they have fun going door to door! Saturday we stayed inside most of the day because it was so cold!  State played and won, I had a photo shoot and made it to watch the final 5 min of the game!  Sunday we went to Peter Anderson and had a very nice day!  Nolan was so tired he slept 3 hours when we got back which allowed me to work on my project for my mini sessions!  We are working on Fisher's Reading Fair project that is due Thursday this week so pray for us...
