Fun Day at the Zoo

I took a break from painting today to take the boys to the zoo. It was almost 85 today, but we had a great time. We went with about 5 or 6 other moms from church and their kiddos. It was a blast! I didn't take very many pictures because Micah does not want to look at the animals from his stroller anymore...he wants to run from animal to animal! Chasing two kids is a little harder to do. Here is one picture of Sam and his friend Jalen. 
Hope you are having a great day too!

ER and Preschool

We had a fairly exciting day at the Fikes house today. Yesterday I was talking with my neighbors and found out that today was sign ups for this preschool down the street from us. What? I had no idea that you sign up in February for school to start in September!! That is just crazy to me! Anyway, I kinda freaked out. I got on the phone and called several other friends to ask about this school because I have not even seen it. I quickly printed out the forms from the internet last night and filled out everything. When Wes got home I told him about the school and smiled really big...just hoping he would agree that the boys needed to go to school next year. Normally I would not be putting my boys in school yet, but if Wes goes to the academy to be a Texas Game Warden...he is gone for 7 1/2 months and only home on the weekends. I will NEED the boys to be in school 2 days a week. So... we showed up at 7:30 am knowing that they did not start until 8:30. I was a little nervous about getting a spot. WE GOT IN!!! I am really excited. I know that I will be sad when it gets here...but the boys will be excited and that is what counts. We decided to take a tour of the school when we were finished and we love it! 

As we were getting in the car, Wes gets a call to sub today. Great timing that he got to go with us this morning and get paid for a whole day of substituting! Awesome! So we drop him off at the school right by our house and then head home. We were home a couple of hours when Micah falls and hits his head right on the edge of the wall. Blood starts pouring out and I realize we are about to have a visit to the ER. I run Sam to the neighbors house and fly to the ER. I am kinda nervous because in the car I can't keep him awake. I don't know if a baby can go to sleep after he hits his head...but I was worried that would be bad. So I ran several red lights and finally got to our awesome little ER right by our house. There is no wait and they are so nice there. Anyway, Micah is totally asleep when we get and he actually slept through the whole ER experience! Basically all they did was super glue his head shut. Isn't that crazy how they use glue??? 

Here are some pictures of sweet Micah and his poor head! 
I am sure that he will love that scar when he gets older! 

Hope you are having a day with a little less excitement!

Happy Valentine's Day

We have been so busy at the Fikes house! We got back from New Mexico about 2 weeks ago and have not stopped since then. Mom and I had two parties the weekend after we got home and then another one last Thursday night. God is blessing our business more that I could imagine! Thank you so much for your prayers. We have another party on the 28th. 
Wes is substituting and helping Mom and Dad on their house, which is going really well. 
God is taking care of us, just like he promised! 
It is a little late, but I posted lots of pictures from our happy reading! 

Happy Valentine's Day!!! 

Emma Grace

Last Sunday I went to Denison to see my best friend Katie and 
her sweet little girl Emma Grace. We only spent about 24 hours 
together...they were great! 

Katie, I miss you so much! You are a great mommy! 
Come see us in Houston soon! 

Awesome Birthday!!!

So I turned 30 while we were in New Mexico, and I thought that was it for my birthday. 
Little did I know that Wes had planned a surprise party for me. The friday after we came back Wes took me to a great dinner and when we came home to lots of my friends and family at our house to surprise me. It was great! 

Thank you so much honey for a great birthday!!! 
I love you very much!!! 

New Mexico

The last week of January my parents took all of us to Cloudcroft, New Mexico. 
Justin was not able to go because of work. We really missed him! 
We had a great trip! I had a hard time picking just a few there are TONS to see! 
The are also in the wrong order...sorry! 
Audrey (my sister) and Taylor
I hope Taylor does not kill me for putting this picture on here! 
We had a western picture made. The boys loved dressing up. 

When I find the cd of the group pictures I will add them. 
They were pretty cute! 

Happy 30th Birthday

I turned 30 while we were on the trip. 
They took me to this great little place with an awesome view! 

And Mom made me my favorite...Strawberry Cake! 

It was a wonderful birthday, spending it with all my 
favorite people...just wish Justin had been there! 

Sledding Day

The boys loved sledding so much that we had to go another day
I wish you could see Audrey's face close up. 
I think she was a little scared! 

Micah and Taylor were buddies the whole week! 
So cute! 

Snow Day

We took a day to drive up to the ski resort and let Sam try skiing. 

Sam looks like such a big boy with his skis

Here is Sam with his instructor

He did great getting on the ski lift. But once he got to the top...
he wanted his mommy! 

We took a little break to go sledding

After sledding we went back and helped Sam get used to skiing. 
By the end of the day Sam loved it! 
He can't wait to go back again. 

Rock Band

Mom and Dad got Rock Band for the trip and it was so much fun!
