Surprise by Chloe

I opened the cabinet where I keep the water and discovered a little pile of silverware.  I guess she likes it here better than in the drawer where I like to keep it.

A Little Catch Up - August

Ok, now August.  August turned in to a long month.  It was hot and that was about it.  Chloe and I wondered all over the campground.  She got bored with all the out door toys, and the playground.  We did have an awesome opportunity come up though.  Our church started a Mother's Day Out program.  They were hiring teachers so I applied and got hired.  Chloe gets to attend the program as part of the job.  It really is perfect.  It gets us out of the house a little bit, we make a little bit of money to put towards a house, and Chloe gets to play!

We took a little weekend trip to Dallas in August with Clint's cousins.  We went to the water park and toured the football stadium.  I didn't get very many pictures because, well, cameras and water don't mix and keeping up with a toddler while in a strange place makes taking pictures difficult too. 

Most of the pictures this month wound up being from my phone.  Guess I just always left the camera at home....

 Ready to go play.  Notice the tan lines.  We practically lived outside during the summer.

So that wraps up another month!  Making progress!  A few more days and we should be current!  Thanks for sticking with me!

A Little Catch Up - July

July was so super hot.  The air conditioner in the trailer is much better than not having one at all, but it still had a hard time keeping up.  We did survive though and managed to keep somewhat busy.  Clint played volleyball with his cousins and some of their friends.  Chloe and I spent most of our days outside.  We walked around and around the campground, watered our flowers and plants and got a really good tan!  Steve and Cindy also got to come to visit for the 4th of July and we had a lot of fun with them.  Chloe loved playing with the sparklers.  It made me a nervous wreck because she isn't scared of anything.  I thought I was going to have a heart attack most of the night.  She did great with the, though and had a blast.  Steve and Cindy even watched Chloe one afternoon so Clint and I could go see a movie.  Yay for a date!! Enjoy the pictures from July!

A Little Catch Up - June

Oh dear!  I am so far behind!  You will have to excuse the past several months of quiet.  We have been busy playing outside, grilling out, still trying to find our routine after moving, I was organizing and getting photos put into an album, reading books, playing in the pool.... all kinds of summer activities!  Then summer turned to fall....  That coupled with my spotty internet and, well I haven't been motivated to get to the blogging.  I guess it is time to play a little catch up so get ready!  These next couple of posts will be crazy and full of random pictures and news so I can get caught up and ready for the holidays and new posts!

Let's see, I last posted in May so that means I need to start in June.  June held a visit from Mimi and Pawpaw, lots of playing outside.  We sweated A LOT!  Father's Day was in June, eating ice cream....  Well I'll just show you the cute pictures!

 Taking a rest with Mimi and Pawpaw

 Happy Father's Day!


 She loves to draw!

So that was June in a nutshell.  Moving right along to July!

Surprise by Chloe

One day I was preparing Chloe's bed for her to have a nap I found a surprise.  She has become fascinated with my nail polish and always wants her toes to be pink.  She plays with the polish almost every day carrying around and having a whole little conversation with it.  I guess she wanted this one ot play with during her nap.

Our campground has a swimming pool and a couple of evenings Clint has taken Chloe to to try and stay a little cool in this crazy heat.  She was shivering like crazy, but didn't want to go home.  We are going to have to get her some floaties though because she thinks she is big enough not to have to have Daddy's help.  Scares Mama to death!



Such fun with Daddy!

Memorial Day Fun

Clint had a long weekend for Memorial Day weekend so we loaded up and drove to Amarillo after he got off on Friday.  Living closer to my family means that we can now take little weekend trips to get out of town.  We had a good time getting to see the family and Chloe really enjoyed it too.  The last visit to Amarillo was really hard on her.  She was upset, sick and crying the whole time so I was a little nervous for this trip.  Other than not sleeping through the night, she did great!  She was happy, friendly and loved playing with everyone!

Mimi found some cute little cars at a garage sale right before we came and Chloe thought they were the best toys on the planet.  She couldn't get enough of them.

We had a nice relaxing visit and enjoyed all the space in the house.  Chloe loved having an area to run and play and some new toys to play with.

MawMaw's Visit

Clint's grandma came to Odessa to visit some family that lives here and take a little vacation to Hawaii.  When she got back, we got to hang out with her for dinner a few nights.  One night she took everyone to Mr. G@tties so the little ones would have a place to run around and get the wiggles out.  They all had lots of fun, and Chloe got to pick out two little bouncy balls with her tickets.  She was in heaven because she is a huge fan of balls at the moment.

 What are these for?

 Throw it hard!
 Forget that!  this is easier!
