Boys and Toys

Where do I begin??? PART 1
This month has been CRAZY to say the least. About 3 3/4 weeks ago(Yes I count) my oldest went out into the real world and into his own. I helped him move, packed him up , cleaned new place, unpacked him. That way he could work and he could come to his new house with everything in it's place. I just wanted it right for him.

I will say I cried the first night (still adjusting don't tell) see He was the last one in the house every night and when he came home my nest was complete and safe and everyone home....I could sleep.
Now someone else has to remember to shut the back door and turn the back porch light out.(still adjusting)

I will say I am so proud of the way he has taken on this responsibility, we have visited a few times taking things to him(like his DOG) and the house is clean and orderly.....He is a good housekeeper, I think I have taught him well......He still just keeps amazing me. Although he had me come out to sit and wait for the satellite guy???


The youngest......did I mention this was a rough month......this boy turned 16 yesterday. He is growing to fast. I am the short one now. He has muscled up and voice is deep, and he has a JOB, and after tomorrow morning he will be able to drive himself anywhere without me.........

Grandpa gave him a 1986 Ford truck 4 x 4 huge. The first thing he did was rip everything out and added a stereo system...below you can see how proud he is of it...proof he knows how to I am wondering what's up with his room now?

Wow he even knows how to work the shop vac....

the trucks old but she was FREE ...
now he is saving his $$$$$ for paint job and wheels.
Boys are fun.

We finished out the birthday with a family lunch. Hubby took us out to eat and even the oldest showed up for a free meal and even if he never admits it, to celebrate with his brother.
I was shocked when he gave his brother a wad of cash for his birthday.
I almost passed out to tell you the truth.
Another reason I love my boys, they blow me away sometimes and like each other.

I am very proud of both my boys, God said  we are
 to train them up to be good men.
I have faith He will finish the rest.
Thank you Lord for blessing me with 2 really good boys.

Purse Dog

Grandpa gave Matthew a NRA duffel bag
He thought it would be cute to use it as a
carrier for our "Sissy"

She likes anyone who will carrier her

 This is Daisy. She has been outside all day
Heaven forbid......I caught her dreaming and her
 tongue hanging out

The man I Love

Happy 17th Anniversary to the sweetest, most loving man I know
I love you's to many, many more
friday the 13th, has been very lucky for us!

 A boy and his dog.....hang on Rosco
               Stay boy.....
Both of these boys love the DIRT. It's a shame in Texas we have to water before we can plant this year.
I say we, not us . The son works for a great farmer and I steal sweet family photo's from time to time when we go help...

My boy hard at work.

I'll just stand here boss, in the shade.

Let the water flow.

I love you!

My electrician, playing farm hand for the evening, changing water.

Wish that was rain's smoke from a big grass fire.

Rosco your not suppose to cross the road. boots are still dry

I only kept this one because the boy was in the background.
this is a delete pic if I ever saw one!

MOM, make sure you angle the water socks into the row I am redirecting it to.
Not his exact words, but best I could explain my instructions to you LOL
you might not understand farmer talk.

Love helping and hanging out with my boys even when there is work to be done.
Have a great weekend.
