Photo Friday: Easter at the Blowin’ O

We celebrated Easter with the Odom side of the family on the Saturday before Easter.  The kids had a great time getting to play and explore the Blowin’ O, what we affectionately call Aunt Karen and Uncle Lee Roy’s place out by Aleman, TX, which is right outside of Hamilton.  It was Granny and Grandad’sContinue reading “Photo Friday: Easter at the Blowin’ O”

Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day

A few weeks ago Anna and I enjoyed a day just one on one. We got our nails and toenails done- both in red. Then, after her beauty sleep, I took her to get her hair done. I felt like the coolest Mom ever (even though I know lots of other moms do this onContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: Daughter Day”

Photo Friday: Pinewood Derby Prep 2018

It’s hard to believe that it’s already almost Pinewood Derby time again for Boy Scouts. Last weekend Will and Garen headed down to Hamilton to work with YaYa (my dad) on this year’s model. Dad is the most detailed oriented man I know when it comes to this. It’s such a good example for Will.Continue reading “Photo Friday: Pinewood Derby Prep 2018”

Photo Friday: I’m an Auntie

I actually don’t remember whether I’ve blogged about my new niece or not but she is an absolute doll. I got to see her again last weekend before the Odom family made their way back up North. She was baptized at my parents’ church over the weekend. Unfortunately, Kate had some disgusting bug causing herContinue reading “Photo Friday: I’m an Auntie”

Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen

Today was a great day with the girls. They love to “pay kitten” (aka Play Kitchen). They’re very creative and I only had to retrieve one chewed up plastic French fry from Kate’s mouth. I call that a success. People often ask if they get along well. And I always answer with “Eh.” Their personalitiesContinue reading “Sweet Saturday: In the Kitchen”

Photo Friday: Fossil Rim

Garen took the bigs to Fossil Rim a few weeks back on his way back from Hamilton. Despite Will almost losing a thumb while feeding a very greedy Oestrich, they had a fantastic time. If you’ve never been to Fossil Rim in Glen Rose, it’s absolutely a Texas bucket list item! It was a greatContinue reading “Photo Friday: Fossil Rim”

Photo Friday: Sweet Holiday Memories with Sugar Cookies

A couple of weekends back, the kids helped me to make Christmas cookies. We had such a good time, even if my kitchen became a disaster zone and the control freak, perfectionist side of me struggled to let them decorate them however they wanted. Garen caught a few good photos of us in action. Yes,Continue reading “Photo Friday: Sweet Holiday Memories with Sugar Cookies”

Photo Friday: Will’s Spooktacular Costume Birthday Party

A few weeks ago we had Will’s VERY belated birthday party. His birthday is always the first week of school, meaning there’s really not enough time to invite any of his classmates besides the ones we already had addresses or parents’ phone numbers. As we got closer and closer to Halloween, we all settled onContinue reading “Photo Friday: Will’s Spooktacular Costume Birthday Party”

Happy (Second) Birthday/Halloween!!!

Halloween is a big holiday in our household- it’s Clara and Kate’s birthday.  Today they turn two.  I sound like a broken record every single birthday for the kids but, man, how time flies! It seems like just yesterday that this was happening! Or this: And now, here we are:  Two Two-Year-Olds.  Double, Double Trouble.Continue reading “Happy (Second) Birthday/Halloween!!!”
