Life LatelyΒ 

Once again, we had a fun-filled weekend with lots of birthday celebrations. Other than March (which is Brady, Mia, Tessa, Brant, Gracie, and Rayleigh’s birthday month) May is our other busy birthday month. This weekend we celebrated Kayla’s birthday. Brady attended Coby’s birthday party on Saturday too so we have been in the celebrating mood all month long!

We went out for pizza for Kayla’s birthday. πŸ•

Sunday was church and I attended a wedding. After evening services we all went out to celebrate Kayla one more time.

This week kicks off The Seals Summer Theme Weeks! Tom and I sat down and planned out 13 weeks of fun for the Six Sweet Seals. I am hoping the kids will enjoy all our activities and have a fun-fill summer. This week is Kids in the Kitchen Week. I will post about our weekly adventures every Monday this summer so stay tuned. The first Summer Theme Week post will be next Monday!


Be blessed,


Our Wild WeekendΒ 

Hey there y’all! Hope you had a fabulous weekend. I’ll start by saying, I’m one tired mama! We have been going non-stop since Thursday! But everything is just fine because….. ITS MY BIRTHDAY WEEK!!! πŸŽ‰ Whoop whoop! 😊

Thursday, Brady had a home game. I didn’t have the best seat so I didn’t take any pictures, except this one. I love how both teams got together after the game for a prayer. I’m proud of all these coaches for setting such a positive example for our kiddos.

On Friday the quints had their 3 year checkup. Everyone got a good report. I’ll do a whole blog post about the appointment in a day or two.

After the doctor appointment, we went to a local furniture store and bought all the girls new beds. So in a few weeks, all our baby beds will be replaced with big girl beds!

If you are from the east Texas area, I highly recommend Rawl’s Furniture Store. They are friendly and will take good care of you.

My nephew, Gage, went to Regionals in track. His team got 7th in their Region. We are so proud him and all the Cardinal track team.

Saturday we woke up early and headed to Shreveport, LA for the March of Dimes walk. We had a great time. Β I’ll do a separate blog post about the walk this week.

Saturday evening we celebrated my Dad’s 60th birthday at a BBQ restaurant. I was in charge of the decorating, so I used the decorations from the kids cowboy/cowgirl party last year and it didn’t cost me a penny. I’m so glad I held on to those decorations. We had a great time hanging out with our family.


Sunday we went to church (am & pm). Miss Holly Boo and Hadley came by to visit us and after evening services we went out to eat pizza for one last celebration for Papa Berney.

And today is the first day of May! 😱 I seriously can’t believe it’s already May! Tessa was pretty excited about it being Mama’s birthday week. πŸ˜‰


Be blessed,


Hello Monday!

Hey y’all! Welcome back. I hope you had a restful and relaxing weekend.

Friday we took the kids to see the Easter Bunny at the mall. In route to the mall, Brady was talking about how he wasn’t scared of the Easter Bunny, but when we got there, he started to get nervous. Gracie was having a major meltdown and was holding on to Steven for dear life. The others were a little timid, but not my tiny little Mia, she was fearless, she walked right up to that Easter Bunny and gave him a high five. Once she did that, all the others followed her lead and gave the bunny a high five, expect Gracie. I was hoping Steven and I wouldn’t have to be in the picture this year, but that didn’t happen either. This Easter picture is too funny to me. I love how it really catches our family.


Having fun with the Easter Bunny wore Mia smooth out!

Check out her smirk after she woke up.

Friday night we stayed home, Steven grilled hamburgers, we ate on the back porch at the picnic table and let the kids play. It was a nice way to end a busy week.

Saturday, I was very productive and cleaned out the girls’ closet. I packed all the winter clothes up and filled their closet with dresses, dresses, and more dresses. Oh my word! I had no idea how many dresses I’d gotten the girls for this spring/summer. Needless to say, they are set on dresses. I still have a few more totes to go through but for the most part, their closet is ready for a while.

While I cleaned the kids had fun with their grandparents.

Sunday, Steven and I were able to get away after church and go watch Beauty & the Beast. It was nice to have a quiet and relaxing afternoon with my love. ❀️

That evening, we ate dinner at Kayla & Jeremy’s.

Last night right before we put the boys to bed, I walked in on this happening. These two little boys melt my heart. πŸ’™πŸ’™

We’ve got another busy week ahead of us: class pictures, Easter party at school, and a t-ball game. I will be one exhausted mama by the time Friday rolls around, and you know what…I wouldn’t trade my life for anything in this world!!!😁


Be blessed,


Hello Monday!

Hey y’all! It’s been a while since I’ve written a Hello Monday post, now that things have calmed down from the birthday party, this seems like the perfect time to get back to my normal blogging. So, here’s what we’ve been up to lately.

Steven got the playhouse set up and the kids love it! This was our birthday gift to the girls but as with everything, it ends up being for everyone. I hope we get many years of them playing in this playhouse.

I wasn’t feeling well at the end of last week so Friday I broke down and went to the clinic and got a steroid shot and a Z-pack for a sinus infection. I feel so much better!

I went consignment shopping this weekend! Got 10 items for only $104!!! I got 3 smocked dresses, 2 Polo shirts for Brady, a cute R dress for Rayleigh, as well as a couple of cute little summer dresses. I also sold some items this year so I’m hoping to get a little cash back in return. πŸ™‚

Friday night we watched the Cardinals win their baseball game. We love supporting our Cardinals, especially our favorite Cardinal, Gage.

We love Camryn.

Saturday night we went out to eat for my stepdad’s birthday.

We got to visit with our little friend, Tucker.

Can you believe it’s April?!???? It just doesn’t seem like it should already be April. However, I’m so glad spring is finally here. I’m loving the warmer weather and all the beautiful blooms of bright green trees and colorful flowers. It’s always so nice when the kids can go outside and play rather than being stuck inside all day long.

We have a busy week ahead, the kids have a field trip, Brady has his first t-ball scrimmage, and I have to sign Brady up for kindergarten! I’m a little heartbroken about the last part, but it’s going to be okay. It just doesn’t seem real that he’s starting kindergarten in the fall!

Be blessed,


Life Lately

Hey y’all! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.Β For the first time since starting our potty training journey Steven and I felt comfortable to leave the kids for a few hours and run some errands. It was nice to get some time alone together because both of us were in desperate need of some time away from the kids and potty training. Over the past couple of days, the kids have been doing well with potty training. They are still having some accidents but we’re seeing improvement and that’s so encouraging.

We had a big change in our house this weekend. The kids outgrew our 6 seater table about 3 months ago but we kept using it because we couldn’t agree on what to get to replace it. Finally, we decided to bring their picnic table inside and that’s what the quints are going to eat at for a while. It’s the perfect size for all six of them. They have been so excited to have the new table.

Well, that about sums up what we’ve been up to lately…oh except I forgot to add that I’m still crying my eyes out over the Cowboys game yesterday. Such a heartbreaking loss. 😦

Be blessed,
