So last Thursday Bryan had his final in the MLGW course-well wouldn't ya know it at 4:40p.m. I get a call and he has officaillly locked himself out of the house=AWESOME. Please note we have been in the house 8 months and this is maybe the 3rd time this has happened ;")) sweet little ole hubs has memory loss. Anywho-I called Chad-Kelly's BF and he came to the rescue-delivering Bryan to his final exam and then taking him home afterwards. Sooo then even more fun happens-we head to dinner and my Envoy starts acting up so off to Autozone we go to check the battery. We get a new battery and then they say-but we have to get it somewhere b/c the alternator is bad. So we drop it off at our trusty place in C'ville for the 3rd time in 2 mths. Then we get to the house around 9p.m. and everyone is asleep around 10:30p.m. BUTTTTTTT at 3:45a.m. our alarm goes off and Nooooo worries I married MR. Crazy Army Dude. He is screaming "The GUN The GUN"-so gun in hand scanning the house and finds the door open to the house (due to pressure-because one of us had not shut it all the way). Which means 4p.m. back to bed and of course then we can't sleep. So last Thursday was really not ideal. Although I am sure my super smart hubs did great on his final. Since then I have flown to Minnesota (had at least 5 people ask me where I am from). Which means they were totally making fun of the way I talk. Addison got sick while I was away on business-Super Dad took care of her. Mom and Dad got back from a 2wk trip through the Panama Canal all tan and feeling good. We bought a new car-2012 Subaru Outback (a do what??) I know........BUT So far I love it and it gets 30 miles per gallon=AWESOME and super saver as I am adding 80 miles per day. Bryan is getting over a hurt back and I am nursing a sprained knee or hurt knee or whatever you'd like to call it-it hurts walking down stairs. My sweetie was cleaning the shower and well didn't really complete the job-therefore one foot slid all the way in and my knee turned the complete wrong way. Not a great way to start out the night I got back in town. Anywho-other than that we are good. Addison is working hard on potty training and doing a great job (not so much with me-but at school she is doing awesome. I do believe that Mommy is the one who needs to work harder on potty training at home.

Potty Training/Update

This weekend I will be potty training Addison. YEP an all weekend event (hopefully with that and help from the daycare we will get it accomplished.) So far so good-she likes the potty and will go on it. Just ready for some big girl panties-which she is very excited about. My new cousin Mindy had her baby!!! Wooo hoooo I have a new 4th cousin named Grace-and she is beautiful!! And super tiny-born at 25wks. Prayers needed for a healthy happy growing baby. We recently had a group of guys come and finish our flower beds-front and back-what a nice thing to have checked off of our "New House" list ohhhh and we also FINALLY bought a dishwasher-yes I went 6mths without having one. I am amazed at just how much I can live without. We have found a wonderful church in Collierville-Central Church and from the moment we walked in it felt like home. We have gone every Sunday and will continue to go. We tried a Sunday school class last Sunday and loved it-they talked about how to raise God loving kids and what to give them to make that happen. What a beautiful needed lesson that was-a real eye opener. Last weekend we went to the rodeo-Addison LOVES rodeos and she sits in the stands screaming "Go Cowgirl Go"-hopefully she will not ask for a horse for her 3rd birthday. Can we at least start out with a dog?? ha. I have a lot going on at work right now and may even start traveling. Which I am secretly excited about-it is nice to get away once in a while without using vacation days ;')) And it lets Bryan bond with Addison (and see just how much I do) baha!

Easter 2012

Our fun weekend started out with me being off of work on Good Friday so Addison and I enjoyed a girls day! We ventured out to Sega Gym for Open gym time-it was awesome 1st time for us to go. Addison loved it. Then the Collierville Easter gathering started at 10 and ended at 12. So we headed over there-then by the time she had danced to every song-we headed home for lunch. Then on Friday night we dyed Easter eggs with the Whiteaker family and Kelly's parents-it was a burger and fries night with lots of laughs. 2nd year in a row of Easter egg dying with them. On Saturday we headed to Kelly's house (my sister) and let the kids dye more Easter eggs. Kelly & Chad made us an awesome lunch with homemade pizza's (yep I'll be stealing that receipe). Then it was home for a nap then up and going again to the daycare Easter egg hunt. Goodness what a great time we had!! So much fun to watch the kids get so excited. There was an egg hunt, dancing, Easter bunny, animals, a train to ride and all of her friends were there from school. Then we came home and made burgers-hotdogs and fries for Kelly-Chad-Aj-and Samantha (family bonding night). A few others were invited but choose not to come. Hate they missed out because we had a great time. Sunday morning came early this year as we attended the early service at church-there are a lot more blue hairs at the early service ;') ha one day I hope to be a blue hair! Addison loved her Easter dress. I had her a super cute smocked Easter dress but then decided that Addison being who Addison is needed a fun-frilly dress. And I found the perfect girly one for her only spending $14!!! AHHHH I mean AWESOME-Addison your Momma is a SUPER SHOPPER. Then after church we went to Mom and Dads for an Easter Egg hunt and a lunch that would make your mouth water. It was delicious!! Thank you Mom as always-you do too much. Here are the pictures from our weekend.

Good Times and lots of laughs

From about 2ft she dumps her Easter basket out to look at her goods-
Therefore breaking all of the real eggs! ha
Only Gandadins are allowed to open the eggs to get the candy out

JEEP Pics and Cousins Weekend

I have a good friend Ms. Mae and her boyfriend Buddy that have pretty much adopted Addison as their own. They call themselves Aunt Mae and Uncle Buddy. Addison loves them and we try to go by at least every 2 weeks or so. For Addisons 3rd birthday that will be in August Buddy and Mae wanted to get her a JEEP! But they wanted her to be able to enjoy it all summer. She could not believe that this was her very own JEEP-I recorded it and she was just amazed.

My sweet baby girl

Not real sure what this look was about!

Last weekend when I took these pics we got to meet up with Kaye and Mindy my 2nd and 3rd cousins from Kentucky. We had such a great time with them shopping for Cinderella items for Mindys babys room (she is due in July and her name is going to be Grace. Then on Sunday we headed to the Spring Market where we stocked up on more great Spring items!! Dips/Mixes/Clothes and all kinds of girly items! I have some great pictures from our ALL GIRLS weekend-coming soon.
