My oldest turns 16 today. He would say "Yes"! I say "Ugh"! Letting him go to Agentina was way easier than seeing him turn 16. At least when he went to Argentina he still needed us to drive him to and from the airport. Now he doesn't need to depend on us in this way anymore. My husband made the comment about a week ago, that after all these years of driving him to school, weather they talked or not, they were together now that is over. Just another part of letting go. Oh I am pretty sure I will get used to it and at times be very thankful that he can go pick up that forgotten item from the store for me and that he can now take himself to and from school and practices but for now I am sad that the "taxi" chapter has closed.
Happy Birthday Chandler, you are an awesome young man that we are so proud of. Looking forward to what God has in store for you and our lives in the future.
We love you!
Mom,Dad, Carson & Cameron

Did I really say in the last post title, "I got my move on" ? Well I quickly found out that I don't have any move to get on. All the plans I had remember?? I laid them out for you and they were so good in my head. However, when 2 key pieces of furniture just won't make it into two seperate rooms that you have carefully planned out you just end up with hodge podge. ugh! So Carson's old room was going to be a living area of sorts, couch, Chairs and TV. Now only has 2 wing chairs. The couch couldn't fit. The boys room upstairs has everything except the armouire(so spelled it wrong, don't care) that was in Cameron's old room. It matches the beds it is so key to being in their room, took us 25 mins to get it up the stairs on its side and that is where it stayed with us holding it trying to figure out how to turn it or get it off the stairs... ended up going right back downstairs but not before we broke one of the doors off of it. The only room that is completely the way I planned is the school room. My dinning room now has a green and marroon plaid couch, with a big white and blue armouire(again spelled wrong, again, don't care) because I've got nowhere to put them. Oh well so much for my little moving project to avoid buying anything. I am still not buying any accessories for my home but I will now be purchasing spackling and paint(Do you think I can use a can of spray paint?) to take care of the huge dents and divits we put into the walls with the pieces of non cooperating furniture and some bengay to help all aching muscles I now have from all this moving and non-moving.
On a much funner note. Our Tigers played for the Conference USA title today and won! It was so much fun. Chandler, Cathleen, David and I went to the game. It was sold out. So much blue and gray. Of course with us going to the game I needed to ask someone to keep Carson and Cameron. We reminded them not to fight with each other and to obey my friend. (just the normal things you need to remind boys of)
When I called to check on my sweet precious baby boys my friend told me they had a little incident. She ran into the grocery store where Cameron hit Carson and Carson bit Cameron. Thankfully she has 3 kids of her own and was able to handle them. She said otherwise everything was great. She assured us we could grab a bite to eat before we picked them up so we headed to El Porton(love me some white cheese dip) for lunch. We then picked up the hitter and the biter and finally we went home where I plan to hibernate and nestle up with a blanket on the couch watch tv and think what could have been if could have got my "move on".
Happy Belated birthday to my sweet niece, Hannah she turned 8 on the 6th of March the only girl on my side of the family. Happy Birthday to my nephew Austin today he turned 15 and is going to get his permit in a few days. Wow with him getting his permit and mine getting his license..... WATCH THE ROAD Tennessee & Georgia!!!!!!!

Paige tagged me to write about myself in only six words. Here goes...
bought and paid for by Jesus
I have had this brainy idea to move rooms around in my house. With the recession, buying stuff right now is just not an option so for someone who likes to change around the house with new accessories and things I decided to use only what I have and move the rooms around, just something different.
I started today and "HELLO" what was I thinking?????
Here is the plan.
1. Carson & Cameron have their own room right now but want to share a room so we are moving them into the upstairs playroom.
2. We are moving most of the playroom furniture into Carson's old room to make another living space of sorts. Tv, couch, games, and game systems.
3. Cameron's old room will become the school room.
4. My dinning room will finally become a dinning room again when the school room is moved. Of course I moved a ceiling fan in there and the old chandelier is in the kitchen so I will have a dinning table with a fan above it til I get a new fixture. I can wait. :0
I really thought I, will the help of Chandler and hubby, could get this done in a day. NO WAY! There is so much to organize first. Of course I had to break for dinner, my sweet mother-in-law made some homemade pizzas for us which was a break for me in that I did not have to cook... In the words of London Tipton... "Yeah Me" I have made a little progress though and it is fun to see something a little different.
Wow for someone who doesn't like change, I have never minded changing things around in my home.
You need to rush over to visit Kelly to get some great ideas on recession dressing. Of course while you are there take a million peeks at her precious little baby girl, Harper. I could just eat her up and those bows make me want to buy a bunch even though I am a mom of three boys. I do have a female black Lab though.... ummmmm
