What the boys have been up to...

I had a bunch of random pics on my phone, so I decided to do a post about what the boys have been up to these days...
 Holden has been a complete mess, true to form.  Above he is eating a popsicle in the most fabulous contraption ever invented!!  Then below, he was being resourceful.  He often drags a stool in the pantry to help himself to a snack!!  It doesn't matter that the snacks are on the bottom shelf, he likes to reach for things that are off limits!
 Caught red handed!!
 Getting a haircut is still traumatic for the little guy.  He completely melts down every.single.time.  I keep thinking he is going to grow out of it, but it doesn't seem to be getting any better.  Sigh.  The good news is that the boys have the most amazing stylist ever that is so incredibly patient and determined to win him over.  After his last visit, she gave him a total of 4 suckers.  So, he tried to eat them all at the same time of course! 

 On April 22nd, Hudson was recognized at school for being part of the Book Worm Book Club.  He had to read over 2,000 minutes to be in the club.  Way to go Hudson!!

 Holden loves anything sweet, and a donut is no exception!!  Yum, yum!


 Random after school pic of the boys.  Holden has nap hair.  :)
 Hudson has a new found love of fishing at the pond at the end of our street.  He fishes multiple times a week!

 I went on Hudson's field trip on May 3rd with him to the Heard Museum.  He had a great time touching a bunch of yucky stuff...snake skin...
 a live snake...
 and a creepy looking lizard!
 His 2nd grade class.

 Holden has a new found love of mega blocks.  He plays with them almost daily.


 Hudson has been rocking at his soccer games this season.  His team hasn't lost a game yet...woo hoo!!  On May 7th, he scored 3 goals!!!
 May 12th, I got to have breakfast at school with Hudson for breakfast with Mom.  Love this boy!!
 This is what happens when daddy gives this wild child a cake pop...
 After one bite, the ENTIRE thing goes in his mouth!!
Life has been crazy busy as you can see.  Summer is just around the corner and I couldn't be more ready!!!

New Orleans!

Kelly and I headed to New Orleans the weekend of April 8th for a weekend visit with Aunt Diane and Uncle Al.  We had an amazing time!!  We went to a street festival in the French Quarter all day Friday, ate crawfish and laid out by the pool on Saturday, and just had fun visiting and catching up!  It was a fabulous weekend!!

Holden's 2 year pics

On March 20th, we had Holden's 2 year pictures taken.  I absolutely LOVE them!!  Our photographer captured his personality perfectly!!!








 She even got a few with Hudson too!


I seriously melt when I look at these!!!!

3rd 9 weeks!

We celebrated Hudson this morning at his 9 weeks awards assembly.  He got straight A's for the 3rd time!!  We couldn't be more proud of him...he is ROCKING second grade!!!  :)


Easter 2016

We had a wonderful Easter this year!  A horrible virus hit our house the week before, so we didn't get to attend the Easter Eggstravaganza at church like normal, but we had a great day at church and celebrating with friends.  
Family pics after church.  Love my boys!!!!



 It was next to impossible to get a pic of Holden in front of his Easter basket...he wanted to DIG IN!


 We were blessed to have Leslie and Griffin come over after church for lunch and Easter fun!

 Hudson and Griffin had fun decorating eggs...
 ...and doing an experiment with Peeps!


 Then, we had an Easter egg hunt. (Notice the speckled fence from the hail a few days before...fun times.)

 After our egg hunt, we went down the street to crack our confetti eggs.  The boys had a blast!


 Such a wonderful day celebrating our Savior!!
