Mama is 30!!

We're back...back to blogging, that is. It has been over a week. In that week, Mama has been sick, has had curriculum night and didn't get home until after 9pm, and then to end the week, Mama turned 30 on Saturday!! Here are a few pictures from our week...I will try to be better next week...
Will had some wild hair one morning...Daddy caught in on film!

Some beautiful flowers from some a thank you for taking their son to tennis camp one day over the summer! I like opening the door to people like that...LOL!

Will at Dominick's for my birthday dinner last night!! He loves to eat! While we were all enjoying our salads, he was munching on carrot shreds, black olives, and craisins...then he ate three little saucers of spaghetti!!

My birthday cake that Meme favorite! :)

Will while everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to me...he must of thought it was for him!!

I spent some wonderful time with my family last night!! They also gave some fabulous gifts!! I got gift cards to Target, Kohl's, and Belk, a pretty new monogrammed purse, and a new monogrammed school bag from my hubby! He also got me a few gift cards and is having our carpets cleaned tomorrow while he is off work!!! I was most excited about that. Oh yeah, and my mom got me a new chocolate fountain because mine bit the dust...I now have the Wilton one...bigger and, who's having a shower? LOL!
One more thing I forgot to mention...on Friday when I picked Will up from Jackie's house, he didn't want to come home with me!! I knew that day would come, and as happy as I was that he loves to be there, I was a little sad, too! Have a good week!!

Daddy can't catch me...

This morning before Brad got Will ready to go to Jackie's, Toby was outside doing his thing. When he pushed the door open, Will took the opportunity to go outside when Daddy wasn't looking. He grabbed the broom that was on the back porch and ran into the yard. Brad snapped a picture and then went out to get him. I guess he didn't want to go play with his friends today because he ran from Brad...all the way to the back of the fence. I would have loved to have seen that. :)

You know how sometimes after a long day of work, all you want to do is put your feet up and watch your favorite show?? Well, Will does that, he is getting ready to watch Baby Einstein this afternoon...

...with his buddy, Elmo, that Mama bought at the Kidsignment sale yesterday for $3. He survived the washer and the dryer, and Will loves him!!!

I like to P-A-R-T-Y!!

We went to Will's little buddy's 1st birthday party today!! It was at a local park, and we had a great time. It was you can tell by Will's face. Enjoy the pics...
Waiting on the party to begin!!

Riding on the tractor...

Coloring with the crayons...

I can't go, Daddy...I have a fever...

...or so he tried to get his Daddy to believe. Will grabbed his thermometer (the underarm one) and was trying to persuade Brad to keep him home from Jackie's today. :)
In all seriousness, Will is doing fabulous at Jackie's house. When I arrived today, he and two friends were sitting on the kitchen floor eating their pretzels and drinking their milk for snack. He has learned her routines, and is having a blast. That is such an answer to prayer!!!

Want to know how to get beautiful red lips like these???

Grab your Daddy's cup of Sugar-Free Kool-Aid and chug!!

What am I going to do with him???

So, my child likes to climb on top of the kitchen table...and I have taken all the chairs away. He will pull a chair back to the table and climb on...determined to get on there to play in the centerpiece or to touch the chandelier. How do I keep him off the table???

He has also started straightening his arms, clenching his fists and doing a "grr" sound. I caught pictures of it this afternoon. Too funny! He knows he is funny, too!

C is for cookie...

Tonight after dinner, Brad got himself a cookie. While he had his back turned, Will climbed onto the couch, grabbed the cookie, and chowed down. I had to grab the camera. :)

Today was my first day teaching 3rd grade. I have to say, I enjoyed that age. It was nice that no one came in crying, and they all knew how to read. Haha...after 6 years of teaching Kindergarten, this was a different world.
Will had a great day at Jackie's house. He slept all night last night which was the first time in almost a week. He has been waking up since he started at Jackie's house. When I picked him up today, she said it was an awesome day, and that made me feel so good. He gets good food to eat there, too. :)
She said that he was so sweet, he even shared his thumb with one of the other boys. Haha!! I would have liked to have seen that. Oh, and he started picking his nose today while he was there...let's hope this is not something he decides to do a lot of!

What do you do when you wake up too early?? get into Mama and Daddy's bed to watch cartoons (with orange juice and graham crackers) of course!!

In other news, Brad impressed a lot of women today at my new school. All the ladies in the office wanted to know who had sent me these flowers...turns out my husband and son did! :)

I can do it myself...

Will put his sunglasses on by himself...and was SO proud!! Notice anything funny about them?? Haha!

Fun with friends...

Yesterday after Will got home from Jackie's house, we went up to the pool to play with Tiffany, Hayes, April, Alyssa, Kyle, and April's mom. April, Tiffany, and I all went to high school together, and April and I live in the same neighborhood...and didn't know it until Tiffany told us. Haha! Anyway, Will was born in the beginning of May, the twins were about 2 weeks later, and Hayes was a week after that. Here are a few pictures that Tiffany snapped of Will in the pool!!

Will's 1st day of "school"

So, today was supposed to be my first day back at work. After 15 months of being home with my little boy, I am returning to teaching. However, we have our first two furlough days today and tomorrow. I feel good about this though because that meant I could take Will to Jackie's house both mornings to get used to being there before being there all day. Why he sleeps in the days we have somewhere to go, I don't know. I woke him up at 7:25, got him dressed, and headed out. As soon as we got there, a friend named Lucas came and gave him a hug. He went right in and played, and then gave me some love. Jackie took him from me, he looked back once, and they headed into the kitchen for some pancakes and cantelope. No crying...from either of us. :)
Here are some pictures I got this morning before we left...

Is Toby coming, too??
All right, Mama, I'm ready to go!! (And yes, those are my flip flops in his hands.)

Hey...Leggo my Eggo!!

Will had his first Eggo waffle today for breakfast. I bought him the mini ones, and he seems to like it. There is just a tiny bit of syrup on them.

He also liked his strawberries...
