Tooky Tooky

I wanted to do a quick post since Carter is sleeping and I have a few minutes to myself.   I do have a huge pile of clothes that needs ironing calling my name, but they can wait a little while.  Things are going well around our house these days. Tooky Tooky is just getting bigger and more rowdy every day.  I am getting excited about finding out whether this is a boy or girl coming to join us in September. I did a test that you get at walgreens and that said that is was another boy.  It is supposed to be able 82% accurate, so we will see in two weeks whether it is or not.  I was really hoping for a girl, but the Lord knows what is best for me and he won't give me more than I can handle, right?  One thing's for sure. I will not be spending near as much money if this is indeed a boy.  
I went and took a CPR class for work today and that was fun, and that meant that Carter got to go and visit with his Nana which he always enjoys. Then we ran into some friends at Chick-fil-a and ran in to eat and play with them, and of course, Carter loved all that.  

Casey has been working very hard on all of our rental properties, so that is good, and hopefully we will be making money one day. lol.  I guess, we just need to look at it as an investment for the future.  He is also trying to finish up this semester of seminary. I will be very happy when he is done, because he has had to spend a lot of time away from Carter and me.  

The summer is here in full swing today. Upper 80s.  That's "normal" for Louisiana in April I'm afraid. Here is a cute photo of one of our excursions to the park

And here he found a little lady bug to play with

Well, that's about all I have for now.  I hope that everyone has a great week in the Lord and gets to enjoy this wonderful weather, if you are in Louisiana, that is.

New Post Now

My sweet hubby informed me that I need to update my posts more often.  He comes by and wants to comment, but says my posts are too old, so I am going to try to keep things more current around here.  This should be made easier by my having quit work in the last week.  I have definitely been able to get more done around the house, but find myself getting bored and worn out and it hasn't even been a week.  This gets tiring!!!   I got tired before, but when I got extremely tired of one thing, I then went to work and came back refreshed. Se getting refreshed is going to have to come from another source, which I believe is a step in the right direction.  I want to get refreshed by getting in the Word regularly and having a closer walk with the Lord.  Can I get an AMEN to that. lol. 

Last weekend Casey and I were able to take Carter to Dallas for a little "Carter weekend" as I like to call it. It revolved completely around one special boy who made it so very worthwhile for us.   We also played in the hotel pool and hot tub, and he loved pressing the buttons on the sleep number bed.  I wish I could say that he loved sleeping with us in the big king size bed, but alas, he did not. It took many spankings and cuddlings to get him to settle down.  Friday night we went downtown to the Fort Worth stockyards and a enjoyed a lovely dinner.  Did I mention that I almost ordered calf fries.  Very scary.  If you don't know what they are I encourage you to look it up.  On Saturday we took Carter to the Fort Worth Zoo and had an awesome time. We all loved it. The highlight was getting to the feed the birds in the aviary. They came right down and ate off of your hand.   So neat.  We had a great time and will have to plan more weekends like this in the future.  Here are some pictures from the weekend.
