excuses, project, pictures, and more

I am sorry I have been a bad bad blogger...
But I do have good excuses....

I have been a

It all started (back at the end of March)
 with my nephew's 3rd birthday party. 
Then ~ there was my brother and future sis in law's
engagement party!!!
This is my mom, grandma, my bro, & ME!!!

In  APRIL.....
Then it was time for the party hosting to kick in....
FIRST I planned, decorated, and was one of the hostesses of a bridal shower for my LUVERLY cousin

The theme was
WHO is getting married???

Then I planned, decorated, and helped host a
Bridal Shower for my future sis in law
The theme for this one was Country Chic.

 I went to a feather party
hosted by my
Bless Your Heart!!!!
(I work part-time for this FaNtAbULouS place)
if you look you can see
my new feathers!!!
Unfortunately they fell out after about a week!!!

I also was one of the hostesses for this
future bride
We had a lingerie party at a local pub!!!
and then....

Bridal Shower (I am NOT a host)
for my future sis in law...
It was 50's housewife theme
so my side of the FAM
sported some fab aprons!!!

me and my momma!!!

Then it was my bday and Mother's Day on the same day!!!!
We spent the day with family and friends at my Grandparent's house!!!
Bubble guns were a hit with the boys!!!

My last hosting duty was for a friend at work!!!
She is having a baby girl and we threw her a
Baby Shower.... sorry no pics!!!
but it was cute!!!

ALRIGHT and then I got to attend some more parties...
This past Friday we had
the rehersal dinner for
Ken and I are posing before the festivities.
& YES my hair is REALLY RED!!!
(I let my hair goddess Abby do whatever she wants
and usually the last few weeks of school I get a
FUN color and cut!!!)
thank goodness my PrinciPAL is
cool with my craziness!!!
This is Andi and I
sporting our PARTY

and Andi was BEE U TEE FULL!!!
This was last night!!!
My little family before the ceremony!!!

needed a close up of my little man's
duds....can you see he is ROCK-n
some PINK CHUCKS!!!!
yep that is how we roll!!!! :) * WINK *
It was a lot of fun!!!!

I think that about covers it!!!
As you can see
 I have been going and going and going
for the last few months!!!
In between all of my out of school CRAZINESS...
we have had some fun in school too!!!!

We just finshed our habitat unit!!!
We began our unit by studying a SPECIFIC habitat!!!
We studied the Australian desert in class!!!
The kids then had to study a different habitat and
create a Cinco de Mayo Float representing their habitat!!!
We do this every year and it is a HUGE hit!!!
We parade around the school to show off our hard work!!!
On the float they have to label all the plants and animals
and have a 5 step food chain represented!!!

Here are some examples of some of the best ones!!!

 Don't worry she is my bestie's daughter
 and her habitat is Texas Hill Country!!!
I've done this for 8 years now and this was my first
Hill Country Float!!!
She did an AWESOME job representing nonliving components too!!!
Another bestie's kiddo!!! :)
He did a really hard habitat....
as you can see!!!

 ONE OF MY FAVES of all time...
this is the North American Plains Float

 This was the
African Savannah Float...
he explained that since most of the animals are nocturnal
he made the setting in the dark
with STARS of course!!!
 Pond Habitat...
with a fisherman being the top of the food chain!!!
 and of course...
I can't leave out this CAVE habitat
complete with
a pile of bat guano and
cockroaches (because they eat bat poop...YUM)
 I {puffy}heart this float project
 and will miss it when
 I go to 4th grade next year!!!
oooops cat is out of the bag!!!!
good thing is
 I get to take the majority of my class with me!!!
So I have hAppY and Sad tears!!!

Good thing about moving up...
I get to have these patooties again!!!!
Not the 2 in uniform BUT  the short ones!!!!!
wondering about that pic above????
Well my class came running in from recess
 ( I was off from duty that day)
and they said they saw kids
 throwing rocks and kicking at an injured bird.
Well I couldn't stand it
 so I told them after we got done
 with our Spelling Test
we could go see if it was still there
 and call Animal Control to pick it up!
It was so great to see these kids
 care so much about an injured dove.
We have a window bird feeder
 and they were sad to think it might be one of our
frequent dining guests!!!
When we went outside, she was still
out there but near the road.
SO I grabbed a rag and did some
procedures to surround her!!
We were impressive to say the least....
 and we made a big circle around her
and held hands and took steps in until
 we were close enough for me to toss the
rag on her and pick her up.
We put her in a box (with air holes of course)
and went to the office to call
Animal Control!!!
My school is in a TINY town and so Animal Control
was more than willing to come and get her.
They unfortunately showed up
after school so these two familiar faces
got to hand her over!!!

Well there it is...
the LONGEST post I will probably ever do!!!!
and I hope you enjoyed it!!!!
I will be posting more frequently I am sure because
I am hanging up my PARTY shoes
for some flip flops!!! and can't wait to hang out with
my little man this summer!!!!

any body else have a kid OBSESSED over the
FAKE dog at OLD NAVY???
we have to say hi to him
A LOT!!!
I wonder if they will sell him to me???
