memorial day

Memorial Day is a hard one... remembering those who have died while serving.
I knew a couple of people who died in combat, and it is just the saddest thing.
Today, I'm thinking of all of the families of those people.
Thank you for your sacrifice.

And so, here are my little farmers showing their patriotism...


oh hey, friday | another blog post about nothing in particular

I interrupted a really good HGTV marathon to write this blog post.
And I wish I could say that it is going to be worth it... but I really don't know.
I'm winging it, and not even sure what this post is going to be about yet.

Five things.
Here we go.

1 | circus party
Did you catch my blog post yesterday about Beckam's circus party?
If not... go and check it out. 
It turned out pretty fabulous.

2 | date
Since my guy turned three, he had a little doctors check up.
I thought this would be the perfect excuse to take the day and spend it with him.
Pretty cute date, eh?
Although he did ignore me for a little while when we were shopping. Ha.
He wanted to spend some of his birthday moola and was pretty obsessed with Toys R Us. 

3 | fail
I have been cheating a little bit on my TIU meal plan. 
We have had multiple outings where food is provided, we had the birthday party, we have an excess of strawberries in the garden... so naturally I made a strawberry pretzel dessert and had to try, etc.
Needless to say, I've got to get back on the fitness train and stick to the meals more strictly.
I'm not waking up at 5:30 to workout for nothing.
Currently I'm working out for dessert.

4 | first food
Bennett started eating some real food a few days ago.
My farmer took it upon himself to go ahead and do it.
It was nice since he has never done the first bites with the other boys...
but he is also not the one sticking around waiting for the first real food smelly diapers to arrive.  Eww.
Bennett LOVES applesauce.
And he HATES peas... which you can see for yourself on my snapchat (farmerswifeamy).
And he's okay with rice cereal and avocados.
Tomorrow we will try peanut butter mixed with egg whites.
Kidding. Kidding. 
He will try those when we are in close proximity to a hospital... or maybe not at all considering Beckam's history.

5 | adjusting
My built in childcare left a couple of days ago.
My parents were here for a week, and it was just enough time to get used to them being here.
Beckam has been asking everyday... "Where are Zaza and Pappy?!"
I don't think he understood that when they were driving away, that they wouldn't be back right away.
Needless to say, we are adjusting back to our normal routine, and we don't necessarily like it. 

Well well. 
Looky there.
I did it.
Hammered out yet another blog post about nothing in particular at all. 

And now, it is your turn! :)

To join in on the fun all you have to do is:

1 | Write up a post about five anythings.
2 | Copy and paste the above html code to the bottom of your post.

Have a fabulous weekend friends!


circus party | beckam turns three

Sunday was Beckam's third birthday.
I know I've been talking about/sharing parts of it for what seems like an eternity now, but the day finally came.
I am super happy with how it turned out... minus the wind and fairly chilly weather.
What better way to show it off than with a major photo dump...
One of the benefits of being a sugar farmer, is the access to a cotton candy machine whenever you want it.
My farmer and his dad got the machine up and running literally as people were driving in.
I'm not sure there is a better way to enter a party than to have a giant cotton candy handed to you.
The kids were thrilled at least.
Beckam was just as cute as ever, and when asked what his favorite part of the party was... he said it was eating chips outside with his friends. 
Now I know what we will be doing for his 4th birthday. 
I had all sorts of activities for the kids, but I think that the gymnastics ribbon sticks were the biggest hit.
We did a fun little obstacle course, had chalk, tin can bowling, "fishing", our playground and extensive collection of tractors, etc. 
The tattoo table and water gun shooting ping pong balls station didn't ever happen, because... wind, but I'm pretty sure no one noticed or cared.
It was a super fun day with friends and family!
And now the boys are occupied for a few days with all of the generous gifts...

Adorable banners from Minted.
Birthday boy's shirt from Ahoy Amigo.
Birthday boy's shorts from Periwinkle Jazz.
Everything else... I made... or Amazon. :)


beckam | 3 years

My precious Beckam turned THREE yesterday.
Being the middle child, I wasn't as emotional leading up to this big age change... I've had a kid turn three before, and I will have another turn three in a couple of years.
Luckily for Beckam, he doesn't get as much of the crazy mommy in me coming out as I cling to his every last stage. 
However, this didn't keep me from shedding a couple of tears as I put him to bed the night before his birthday.
I just love him so SO much. 
Beckam is so sweet. 
Every morning he will bring out his beloved blanket and put it over me lovingly... even when I'm mid workout.
He is such a snuggler, and I hope he never stops. 
He just might love his baby brother most of all... always asking, "can I just give Bennett one kiss?"... nonstop kisses, and head rubbing.
He is very empathetic and feels bad when Brody whines about not getting his own way... and generally caves to make him happy... asking "are you happy now Bro?"
However, he really knows how to push Brody's buttons and enjoys getting him to freak out.
This kid is wild. 
And literally is always getting hurt.
No joke, 30 minutes after this photoshoot he was running, tripped and fell on the edge of his bed leaving a big bruise and scab on his cheek and chin. 
He also ran full speed, directly into a glass door a couple of weeks ago... so there's that.
Can we just talk about these eyes of his? And that dimple! 
He is also blessed with the sweetest little voice ever.
He can get away with a lot more than his older brother just by voice tone alone. 
Beckam loves to laugh. 
So naturally, he loves to be tickled. 
I could tickle him ALL day just to listen to those precious giggles. 
He also is a big joker, which in turn makes me laugh.
A funny little dude.
My little guy has a bit of lisp, and I kind of love it. 
Okay = otay, yes = yeth, etc. 
I'm sure he will outgrow it, and I'm sure I will miss it. 
Beckam is such a big helper. 
No matter what you are doing he runs up and says, "I'll help!"
I love his enthusiasm and joy for life. 
My guy loves to farm... with his toys but especially with his daddy and dog, Gunner.
He is always anxious to get into a tractor with him or go to irrigate. 
I just love this little guy SO much, and am so thankful he is mine!
