boys will be BOYS!

There is something about having two sons that makes me smile CONSTANTLY...maybe the fact that if you give them a ball, they'll stay entertained for hours? Maybe that they love their Momma SO much and their Daddy is their hero? Or is it that they play rough and tough, and then come and give you a big 'ol hug and tell you that they love you SO much??!
such determination...




These two will run and play for HOURS in the backyard...totally entertained by a ball! Growing up, you used to have to force me outdoors and you better have something entertaining for me to do out there! I guess I have changed A LOT and love the outdoors too, so maybe my husband and I have rubbed off on these boys?! Who knows, but we sure have fun making simple memories outside as MUCH as possible! We better enjoy it, because we FINALLY have a
40% chance of snow on Friday!
WOOOHOOOOOO
you know I've been waiting for this all winter!
I have a love/hate relationship with Texas...
yesterday it was 75 degrees and humid,
tomorrow a hard freeze :)

You are one lucky Mama, those boys of yours are precious!

We got another 5 -6 inches of snow here in MN yesterday and it's still coming down today - I'll tell it to head your way! haha

Yesterday it was 30 degrees, freezing rain/sleet. Today they are calling for 15-20" of snow. This is NOT normal for Missouri.

You are right, though, little boys can entertain with anything: balls, sticks, rocks, bugs, etc.

Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow! I hope you get snow my friend! I am looking forward to spring now. I have been shoveling almost every other day. Today I was on a ladder for two hours clearing the snow from the roof. There is so much snow and it is very heavy! This is a great post! It is so nice that your boys have so much fun outside! It is also great that they have eachother. I hope you are doing well! Have a great night!

Your boys look like they're having so much fun! Wow, you sure will be going through some temperature extremes--80 degrees to 30 degrees. Yikes! I hope you have some winter gear ready for action! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you see some of the white stuff... :)

Yes boys will be boys... I was at a meeting and the "little boys" around 6-7 somehow end up setting off the office neighbors alarm... but none of them had anything to do with it.. haha 75 sounds pretty good to me!!

I gave you two awards! You deserve them my friend! Have a great night and come and get them! Add them to both of your blogs! :)

Texas weather is like Minnesota weather. We flip flop all over the place -- most of the time! Now, however, we are stuck with just cold and inches and inches of snow.

Love the outdoor pics. My boys love soccer and running around in the back yard.

As the fellow mama of two boys......I LOVE crazy boys! Before kids I would have insisted I couldn't live without having a girl, but now I think life is pretty perfect. We have PLENTY of snow here in Iowa - come visit anytime you want snow!
