Dentist Visit

Gabe had his very first dentist visit. (Insert bad mommy award here). He did great, and I loved the office that we took him to. They were great with him, and he only had 2 cavities, and they were due to his enamel not forming correctly on his molars. The dentist said he happened before he even turned 18 months old, and that we wouldn't have been able to avoid the cavities. So that made me feel a bit better.

It is just crazy how time is just flying right now. We are now filling our schedules with dr. and dentist appointments, PTO meetings, parent volunteer days, etc. It is just crazy how once school has started, everything is in overdrive. No matter how busy we have been or are going to get, I am loving every moment!

1st Day of Kindergarten

He just turned 6, and now he is off to start his school career. Time is just passing by way too fast. I didn't break down and cry, but it is sad to think his days of being home with me all day everyday are over. He's the reason I became a stay-at-home mommy. I love this little man so much!! I am so proud that he was excited to start school, and I am even more enthused to see him grow into a young man. I love you Gabe!!

A Buccaneer Bash

We celebrated Gabe turning 6 over the weekend with a pirate themed birthday party. It was a very busy weekend, but it was a lot of fun. Below are some photos of the party.
Gabe's Buccaneer Bash invitation.

My lovely cake making skills. Not the best it could've been, but he loved it!

He was ready to get the party started!

The treasure chest to hold presents.

Make a wish bud...I cannot believe you are six years old already!

The pirate ship!

Gabe also requested chocolated cupcakes. You canot deny him some birthday cupcakes.

All the pirates before the treaure hunt began.

Ready a treasure hunt clue.

Looking for the next clue.

Our nephew date night

Our nephews are just in town until this coming Saturday, August 8th, and then they will be back in Louisiana with their mom for the school year. It is really sad that these sweet boys are caught in the middle of their parents divorce, and that their mom isn't putting them first by keeping them around their family. I have had my own issues with their mom, and I just see her as being selfish. These boys love it here with their dad, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins! Sorry for the small rant. I just hate seeing these boys suffer. Bryce even told us last night that he didn't want to go back home with his mom, and Isaiah said he is going to hide at his daddy's house so he doesn't have to go. My heart just breaks for them.

So, last night, Chad, Gabe, Graedon and I took Bryce and Isaiah out to dinner at Bob Evans. They all ate really good, and then we took them to our friends video gaming center called Ebash! They were in heaven there. It was a great evening, and it was really fun seeing these 4 boys all bond and just love each other even more. I really hope we can keep them close because Gabe really loves Bryce and spending time with his older, cool cousin. It was a fun night!

Here they all are in front of Ebash. Gabe was thrilled!
Battling it out on Mario Kart. Loved it!

Our guitar hero rockers! Bryce was really good at this game. I was impressed.

Another Ebash shot!
