This Saturday was probably one of the busiest Saturdays ever for us. I have always heard of the families that run from one event to another. I have always thought --I hope that is not us! Well after Saturday's scheduled--- I am exhausted!

7:00 a.m.- 9:30 a.m. 5K/Children 1 Mile Run Fundraiser for our school
11:00 a.m.- Opening Ceremonies for Fall T-Ball and Team Photos
12:30 p.m.- Ethan's FRIST T-BALL GAME
2:00 p.m.- Work Swim Party Fundraiser for our school
2:00 p.m. David and Ethan leave for Louisiana for David's Meat Pie Triathlon on Sunday
What a day and a CRAZY Schedule! We had a busy day at school for our 1st Make a Difference Fundraiser Day and to top it off it was Ethan's first ever baseball game. We were fortunate enough to have all the events at the same park. Here are some pics of the baseball game for the Grandparents. Ethan did great. He had two at bats and hit the ball on the first pitch! He was so excited. I was thrilled to see how well he listened and paid attention in the infield. Not too bad for the youngest on his team! I can't believe that on this Friday he will be 4 years old!
How time flies!

Ethan finishing the Children's 1 Mile!
Daddy "ran" it with him after he ran the 5K
earlier that morning.
Will participated too!
David pushed him in the jogging stroller for the full 5K!

He hit the first pitch thrown to him and made it to 1st base!

Cute baseball player in the dug-out!

"Put me in Coach, I'm ready to play!"

Ethan's Fan Club!
Some of our friends were able to come watch Ethan hit for the first time.
They came over from the Kick Ball Tournament at our school's fundraiser day.
I think they just wanted to sit in the shade,
but Ethan smiled BIG when they screamed his name!

Proud Mommy and Daddy!

Little Brother says it all---

Who says Make-Up, Jewerly, and Playing House are for GIRLS ONLY!!!

You know those Moms that just think their child is the cutest ever and of course their child does EVERYTHING better than your child--- well I really would rather not be one of those moms! But for once I am finding myself being THAT MOM!!! You will all just have to endure it for a few seconds while I tell you about the most PRECIOUS 22 month old little boy in the world!!!

Will has been so much fun lately!! He talks up a storm and repeats everything you say. He is totally into playing with cars and lining up toys. When he wants you to look at what he is doing he will say, "Mama" really loud over and over again.

Well lately Will has filled my Baby Girl needs, and I am totally loving it! Don't tell David I am writing about this (he will never find out because he DOES NOT read my blog). He would be mortified. I went shopping in the best place ever --Charming Charlies-- for a necklace and earrings to match a new outfit that I recently purchased. Will joined me for the outing. He had a blast wearing all the bracelets. Every time he saw something he liked he would say, "That one!" I was teaching him to say, "How pretty!" He would repeat it after me! All the ladies would smile and giggle at him! It was so much fun!

The other morning one of my fantasies came true! I had my very own make-up artist. Will likes to play with my make-up while I put on make-up. Lately he has been putting on powder with his fingers. He thinks it is lipstick and will put it on his lips! He asked one day to put it on me. So I let him! We had a blast. David on the other hand rolled his eyes.

The cutest thing in the world is how he plays house and rocks the baby. I caught him playing house with my Willow Angels the other day. (By the way I now have a few broken ones!) He was saying mommy and daddy has he lined them up. He would hold one of them and "rock the baby." He rocks everything (cars, flowers, weeds, teddy bears, etc)! While he rocks them he says, "Rock the Baby!" It is the sweetest thing in the world! I think Will learned this from cradle roll at church! He will be the best Daddy ever and make one lucky girl very happy especially if he rocks the baby at 2:00 am in the morning!

This is the Daddy and this is the Mommy

OK! So that is all for my Annoying Mom moment! Thanks for letting me share (if your still reading at this point!). But isn't he just so ADORABLE!!!!
