Slaughter House Shenanigans

 With the end of the school year quickly approaching, our house has been full of all the things…sports, concerts, meetings, etc.  Here’s a little look at what’s been going on around here lately…

Britty before school Thursday all decked out in her colorful Matilda Jane.

My new favorite way to drink coffee, in this Walt Disney World mug.  🙂  If you missed my trip recaps you can see them here…

My favorite breakfast or brunch option…breakfast tacos from Hat Creek.  My preferred method is bacon, potato, spinach, onion, and cheese WITH the green salsa.

I got lots of questions about this top from yesterday’s post.  I ordered a medium and like the way it fits…it’s long enough to wear out or I can front tuck it as well.  The picture online shows those long strings with pom poms but remember-I just cut mine off.

I got to attend Nixon’s Economics Fair…he was the proud owner of the Hit and Get Football Stand.

We had an end-of-the-year concert for the 4th and 5th grade choir.  Can you spy Ebby Lee?

This is what it looks like when you have three older siblings who keep you up WAY TOO LATE with baseball games and other activities.  You put yourself down for a nap!

Nixon went to a Ranger’s game on Friday with a friend.  They got to grab some autographs before the game.  He thought this was the COOLEST!

This is what nine-year-old boy heaven looks like.  🙂

 He had zero fun…can you tell?

 Saturday and Sunday were completely full of baseball…Nixon’s team played in a tournament with games about 40 minutes away each day.  We left the ball park on Saturday night around 10:00 p.m.  I think it’s safe to say this is the age where baseball gets REALLY fun to watch.  I like watching my kiddos at all ages but they’re really playing some competitive baseball now and I’m here for it!

We were back at it on Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

 I’m not sure how Nixon feels about his friends being so nice to Bowen, but Bowen is a HUGE fan.  

On Sunday their team played three games and I could really write my own little blog post about how proud I was of their performances.    The last game was super intense, it was back and forth the entire time, and actually ended in a tie which meant we went into extra innings.  Let me just say-this is the first game I’ve ever had a hard time just sitting to watch.  All the parents in the stands were STANDING because it was such a tense, competitive atmosphere but our boys SHOWED UP.  They played so hard, fought with grit, and I wanted to cry when the game ended.  

  At one point, when we held them in the last inning, I literally jumped up in the air with my arms extended!  WHO AM I?!  hahahaha!  It was like I lost control of my body for a second.  Needless to say, I’m thoroughly enjoying this baseball season.

After a weekend of baseball, Nixon and Smith chilled like this as we waited for our dinner table.

Nixon’s uniform was a dirty mess but do you know what it looks like to be a younger sibling and spend all your time at the ball field?  You end your night looking like this…
Britty Girl was a MESS!

Have you seen the movie, The Croods?  She was kind of channeling that baby Crood a bit.  Don’t you think? 

Okay, that wraps up a look at The Slaughter House Shenanigans.

Happy Thursday, Everyone!

    Love sweet Britty! I have the best pics of my boys when they were little at the baseball field watching older brothers playing and they were filthy at the end of the night! Haha! And I love that you drink your coffee from a straw! Me too!
