Sunday afternoon baseball

Last weekend Easton had tryouts for Spring baseball. We have been blessed to experience wonderful coaches and new friendships on the baseball field. The friends Easton made in t-ball continued in fall ball because we were all able to play together. I am so happy to share that most of the boys are on the same team for Spring baseball! We could not be more thrilled about it.
We have about three more weeks until basketball is over, but only one week until baseball starts. Easton will be sad to see basketball finish because he absolutely loves it. I'm confident that once he's back on the ball field with his friends in a few weeks, he'll have lots of fun. I'm excited to be back at the ball field!
This afternoon we played basketball for quite a while and then Joe tossed Easton some baseballs to work on Easton's catching.

At first, Easton was a little frustrated because he wasn't catching them, but he actually caught on somewhat quick and caught several. He was so excited and proud. One day he's going to get a bloody nose and he'll think his life is over (he's a bit dramatic!), but today wasn't the day. Thank goodness. 

It's fun watching him develop into a little athlete. The lessons he will learn along the way are priceless.
Now it's time to turn our night towards football for the Superbowl!

January 2016

January seemed to fly by! Here are a few pictures from the month.
Easton got to wear pajamas and take a bear to school while studying about bears. He enjoyed that unit so much!
Easton is ALL ABOUT Star Wars right now.
Our first season of basketball is almost over, and Easton has loved every minute of it. In fact, he actually said he likes it better than baseball! 
We had about 15 minutes worth of snow during January. It was fun for the few minutes it lasted. I wish we had gotten a lot more. Easton would LOVE it.

We have played lots of games lately - board games, card games, you know it. We actually just got a new one yesterday. Easton enjoys them.

Random Happenings

Happy Sunday! Today has been so nice. We've been to church, I've planned, I've read a {short} book, and I've gotten caught up on blogging.
Today's post is all about the randomness that is our life lately! This next picture was taken at a doctor appointment while we waited foooorrrreeevvveerrr. 
I took a few photos of Easton to frame around the house. Some turned out so good. The first one here is my favorite. 
Easton is taking {and enjoying} hitting lessons with Coach Justin. It's fun watching him interact with his coach and really have fun! 
Kindergarten is going wonderful! I am SO impressed with what Easton is learning. He is soaking it all up like a sponge and I love the level of rigor his teacher expects. They've been learning all about bears lately and Easton has loved that. One day he got to take a stuffed bear to school to read with. 
One thing his teacher does is share an activity we can do at home over the weekend to correlate to what they have done in the classroom. Last weekend we used toothpicks and marshmallows to create "bear dens". So neat!

Easton used a highlighter to pick out books he'd like to order from Scholastic. These book orders get me every time!
We bought a JEEP! I have two very happy guys at my house. I love it, too!

New Years Eve

Mimi came down to spend New Years Eve + a few days with us while we were all still on Christmas break. That day we went antique shopping most of the day. We broke out of New Years Eve fun glasses for some pictures that night. Even Gentle Gordon (the "pet" Easton's class has that he got to bring home over break) got in on the action! 

That night Mom and I went out to eat at Longhorn Steakhouse. Easton was tired from shopping most of the day and Joe wanted to watch football so they had a guys night in while we enjoyed dinner + Starbucks. 

We all stayed up until midnight, watched the ball drop, and ran outside for sparklers!

Happy 2016!

Christmas {round two}

Christmas with my family {round two} was the afternoon of Christmas with the Geren's {round one} so we had a full day of Christmas fun!
We all got together at Gram's house and enjoyed dinner and presents. Surprisingly, I didn't take many photos. I just enjoyed our time together.

We all got so many great things and had a good time just letting the kiddos play and enjoying each others company.
