Staying Focused

There is lots of Craziness going on in our little world right now. Things going on in the lives of people we know. Some stuff that is just heart breaking and some are just train wrecks you have to watch when you'd rather turn away. It is hard to sift through the madness decide how to to turn it into a positive thing. One thing is for sure I am grateful for my little family. I am thankful I have a husband I adore and who loves me. I am thankful for Ramsey and thank God everyday for my little, wild charge. The world is still good no matter if people choose bad. It is the choices we make that determine our quality in life. So I am trying to stay focused, do my thing, and stop occasionally be just be thankful for the life we have. It is good!

Heavy post but needed to vent. Here are a few pics of Ramsey too:

this week

Again not too much new or crazy in the Rowell house. I feel like I don't blog near as much as I used to. I wish I thought to take more pics. I am going to try better, really I am. In other news Ramsey has decided to finally move off of the movie Cars and on to Wall-E. He is in L-O-V-E! We sold his log play cabin and I explained it was taking up too much room and he said "ok, when we sell it can I go to the Wall-E store?" So as soon as the Cabin left our driveway to its new home Ramsey and I we're on Ebay buying him a Wall-E set for $20. It got here on Tuesday and he has been playing with it ever since:

Then the other day we were in Hobby Lobby and Ramsey looked at me and said "Diamonds are a gwirls best fwend" I said where did you hear that. He said "my teachers". We'll at least I know he is learning the important things. Just kiddin'.

Cope and I had a fun date last night to Sushi and then to see the movie Hall Pass. Super Funny and it was just good to spend time with my guy. We also hit my FAVORITE ice cream spot on the way home. Anyone else been to a Menchies? OMG, I seriously need an intervention. That is about all from here for not. Just doing life and loving it (99% of the time). Now off to the grocery store with wild man. Anyone else sort of dread shopping with their 3 year old? He wants something constantly. And will say "Mommy, wait! Back up! I need that" 9 times out of 10 he tries it and doesn't like it and I am stuck buying some crap he promised he would eat. Good stuff.

Saturday Evening Fun!

Yesterday we went to my step-brother, Andrew's engagement party here in Cartersville. It was a laid back, fun party and Ramsey had a blast. Here he is having a picnic on the front porch of the barn:
Riding over to Paige's apartment after the party for a little play time on her roof top patio:
He found this cowboy hat in her apartment and thought it was pretty cool:

He stayed up till 10:00pm and then we all came home and crashed. Fun and beautiful afternoon with my favorite guys (cope and ramsey)!

Sips N Strokes

Last night my Mom, friend Sue, Sister Paige, and Myself had a super fun girls night. We went to have Tapas and Sangria for a light dinner and ten it was on to Sips N Strokes for a painting class. This was my 3rd time at Sips N Strokes and was by far the most fun yet. The painting last was funky wine bottles. We all did great and we're super proud of our masterpieces.

What We've Been Up To

Sorry for the lack of posting lately. Just taking it easy here in the Rowell house. Cope just got back from being gone for 16 days to Germany (for 14 days) and Savannah (for 2 days of drill). It was a LONG two weeks without him but Ramsey and I made it and I only about lost my mind right at the end. Ramsey is enjoying preschool so much and days spent with his Nama. He also got to spend two nights with Cope's parents during Cope's time away. Ramsey loved every minute of his time with Grammy and Grampy! I have been keeping busy with sewing orders,being Mom, and keeping our household running. We are all ready for warmer weather. I have already turned over mine and Ramsey's closets in anticipation. Other then that not too much new to report. Just doing life and enjoying it!

Evening Playdate with Ty

Last night Ramsey's best buddy Ty came over while his parents went out for a family dinner. We ordered pizza and let the boys do whatever they wanted. They chose to watch Mater Tales and just play around. At dinner Ty announced that he was older then his brother. Seeing as how he is an only child we said really? He said "Yeah, Ramsey is my brother" so sweet!
They needed to be up close the action of the movie:

Dr.Seuss Party at Preschool

Ramsey has had a full week of Dr.Seuss at preschool and today was finished off with the "sleep Book" so the kids go to wear their pajamas to school and have lots of activities and the story. Cope and I went and were in charge of putting color in the kids hair and making them look like bedheads. Ramsey was stoked that Mom and Dad both came and stayed at school with him.
Here is the whole preschool after being read the "sleep book": Ramsey: Listening for about 2.2 seconds:
I got on to him for running in his classroom and put him in a time out. I know, Mom is such a party pooper: Enjoying the red fish/ blue fish cookies mommy brought for the class. He ate 2 whole cookies. Maybe that is why he didn't want lunch at chik-fil-a afterwards???:

Snacking with his classmate. Notice he is sitting as close as possible to his beloved Annabelle:
