Hockey with the Big Boys

We are so lucky to live in a neighborhood with wonderful kids and parents. Garrett is one of the youngest and all the big kids are so sweet and patient with him. On a rare sunny day last week, the big boys decided to play hockey and let Garrett jump right in their game. He had so much fun with them! Gaitley enjoyed playing outside too and loved riding the Gator with Garrett when the game was over.

Two New Posts

Make sure you scroll down to see both new posts!


We signed Garrett up for basketball with the city of Rockwall. It is a six week long program, with the first four weeks focusing on drills and the last two weeks are games. Well, he had his first game last week and it was hilarious! He spent most of his time rolling around on the floor and doing cartwheels, but did get to shoot the ball a couple of times. We still need to work on remembering to dribble. Every time he got it, he just tucked the ball and took off down the court. He had fun though and loved every minute of it.

We took the kids to a little hill over by CVS this morning and had so much fun sledding. Garrett had a blast, but Gaitley got a little scared and only did it once. It made me miss growing up in the Panhandle and doing stuff like this every winter.

Snow Much Fun!

Seeing snow on the ground this morning was such a fun way to wake up. Garrett popped right out of bed and was ready to go play in it. He had school at 9:00, so I let him get it out of his system before we got ready for the day. He loved it! Gaitley had fun in it too, but realized it was a little cold after she fell down a few times. We played a little more after school and then enjoyed a little treat of snow ice cream. I pick up two little girls after school and they enjoyed playing in the snow too.

Super Bowl

We went to our annual neighborhood Super Bowl party this year. We had such a great time watching the game and visiting with friends. Garrett had a blast! He loved hanging out with the big kids and even learned how to play a racing game on the Play Station. All he can talk about is going back to Cameron's to play that game. Gaitley had a wonderful too! She loved being passed around and held. The big girls played babies with her. I think she was the baby but didn't mind one bit. She even got to play Barbies for the first time too. It was so nice this year to relax and visit and know the kids were happy and being looked after.

Rain, Rain Go Away

This has been the yuckiest, wettest winter that I can remember since we moved to Rockwall. I am so ready for it to stop raining and for our backyard to dry up, so we can go outside and play. This week we have enjoyed staying in and spending most of the day in our pajamas. We have done lots of crafts, puzzles and reading. Garrett has finally taken an interest in coloring. For the longest time, he would just pick one color and scribble all over the paper. I guess it's a boy thing! He just started wanting to make the pictures look nice. He is very interested in space and planets right now, so maybe it helped that I found a picture he really wanted to color. I was also so proud of how he wrote his name. I even attached a picture, so you could see how good his pictures were.
