8 years old ?!?!?!?

Happy Birthday to Tanner!! I just cannot believe that he is 8 already!

He is growing into such a fine young man. I try not to brag about him but I thought on his birthday it is only appropriate. :) He has so many wonderful qualities and when I had the opportunity to sit down with his teacher... I was just bursting with pride. I am just amazed by him every single day.

I hope you enjoy some of the recent pictures of our fun for his special day.

*** Have lots of pictures to share and another post BUT blogger has not bee cooperating*** I will keep trying!

Exploring Louisiana!

Well, we chose to explore Louisiana over the last few weeks. Here is the first of a few posts. We did a 7 mile family hike on the Sugar Cane trail. It was only about 30 minutes from our house and it was wonderful. We did not see a single person all day! We did see a few deer, a fox, a frog, a lizard, and lots of spiders. I am so happy that the boys are at the age where our Adventures are able to be a little more adventurous. Thanks for stopping in.. please come back.. I am trying to get this blog in shape and there are more posts to come.

Much love,

Tammi and the boys!

Lunch at school

So, this week I had the pleasure of having lunch with 2 very handsome boys. First was on Monday I went to the school and dined with Tanner. I just have to say that Tanner is such a sweet, caring, thoughtful boy. I enjoy his company so much and lunch was no different. We sat at a special table with a table cloth and even flowers in the center. He was very attentive and mostly wanted to talk about me.. and my day.. and how I was.. and of course introducing me to as many friends as he could flag down. Here is a picture of my date #1.

Today's date was with Evan. He was also very excited to see me. It does amaze me that my two boys are sooo different. Evan is such a daredevil. He does everything at mach 10. He does not stop to think. He chose to eat right at his table with his classmates. It was a little brush of celebrity for me.. being Evan's mom.. as apparently he has his classmates convinced he is pretty important. :) He is a bit of a class clown.. which I am not so happy about but it is the joy that he has about life and school and everything in between that makes me smile... :) I am the luckiest mom in the world to have these two wonderful boys in my life.

We are so blessed.

Evan being silly as usual

Thanks for stopping by...

Much love,

Tammi and the boys.

My little bits 1st day

Well it is official! My baby is in kindergarten!! The first picture really shows how he feels about it! He was so happy and excited! Evan embraced kindergarten just as he has all of life.."let me at em!" Evan is always the one to want to grow up so fast! He has to do everything his brother does even if he is almost 3 years his junior. I am proud of him.. but I wish he would slow down just a bit... I mean it is so hard on the mama. Enjoy the pictures and thanks for stopping in!

My token bus shot.. I will take this picture as long as they let me.
The crew.. Evan was so happy to be among them. I love all these kids!!!
Family shot.. Believe me I needed those dark glasses :(
Me and by boys
I love this picture I just wish my lense did not keep fogging up from the humidity.
It all started with a good breakfast.. his choice..Cheesy eggs and chocolate milk

Gosh I love this kid! He is my heart!

Good luck at school little bit! No matter how old or independent you get.. you will alway be my baby!

Much love all.

Thanks for stopping.

As promised....

Well I made a deal with a
friend that I would update the blog today.

Now I did not say that it would be some AMAZING update. But I said I would update. So, I am.

Well, I am having a particularly emotional day today so this will be a post about my boys growing up.. WAY too fast.

The other day Tanner asked if he could make his own sandwich and he did. It looked pretty good too. He even wanted to take pictures of it for the "blog" or facebook.. there might be a bit of a problem there. Well he made the sandwich himself and took the picture himself. The picture turned out a bit dark.. but here it is...

That is spicy mustard, turkey, and pepper cheese on a roll. This is Tanner favorite sandwich and he eats it about everyday during the school year. This is the first time he made it himself.

So, between that and a little bit who is headed to kindergarten VERY soon this mama might have a bit of a breakdown. How did this happen? I know everyone always says.. " they grow so fast" and how true it is. I did not expect them to be self sufficient so quickly as well.

Thanks for stopping in... I am still planning some exciting things for the blog to come. I am not ready to give up on it just yet... even though my long hiatus might have had you thinking that.

Much Love,

Tammi and the boys
