So much Going on!

Gosh, there has been so much going on lately. Why with pretty weather comes busy schedules? Peyton turns 2 next Friday and we are having his party this Sunday. It is ALL about trains! I can't wait to post pictures of his cake I am making. Well, I will only post them if it turns out good.
We are still trying to get someone to put our house on the market. A lot has happened with that situation. I have become a little discouraged, but I have to remember His timing is prefect and His plan is better than anything I could do myself.
This is the last week of regular season baseball games! This means I will see my hubby more!
I think I have the sweetest boy in the whole wide world. He is into this thing that he wants to hug all the time. Yesterday we were driving in the car and just started saying, "Hug, hug!" so I stuck my hand back there and hugged my hand. He is such a mess but he is starting to show affection on his own and I just love it! I eat him up for it!

This morning Peyton and I were in the car on the way to the sitter and I yawned BIG time. My sweet little boy in this sweet concerned voice said, "mommy tired?" This is the second time he has done that and I just LOVE it! He is turning into such a big boy now. We can have 'conversations' now where I can understand most of what he is saying. He can answer questions you ask him. It is crazy how fast they grow. Peyton will be 2 in 2 weeks! AHHH! Two nights ago the three of us were just hanging out on our and he was just being so funny. He was making me laugh so hard. His new thing right now is "mommy daddy bed". He likes to get on our bed and roll around and jump and wrestle and tickle and just be silly. I love those moments! It kinda makes me sad to think these times of the 3 of us will soon no longer be but it makes me happy to know the other side of that...soon it will be the 4 of us! AHH!

So, we are trying to finish up the last things to put our house officially on the market. It has been so hard because when you try to do one thing you find another that needs to be fixed. I am trying to deep clean and make everything look fresh. Does anyone have any suggestion on how to clean/bleach linoleum floors? Ours have started to look dingy in the well travelled areas.

Someone please try this!

Someone out there with a little girl please try to make this! Maybe this pregnancy will be a girl and I can try it or I can try it for a friend. It is SO cute and such a good idea to re-use old.

So I have been checking out a bunch of craft blogs and I am itching to try so many fun things. My sweet husband would kill me if I turned our house that we are trying to sell into a crafty mess and my budget is stopping me, BUT once we move I will have to try a few of these to decorate! At least that will be my excuse!
Here are a few blogs I have been browsing:
So I found this fun blog of secret recipes and I found how to make Girl Scout cookies!! There is all kinds of restaurant secrets on there! Check it out!
This is a cute Diaper Bag.
A few weeks ago a friend emailed me a coupon to get a nursing cover but here you can make your own!
And this one is full of all kinds of stuff. I can't wait to try the photo blocks as g-parent presents.
I am wasting such precious time on here, but what else am I going to do at work haha!

lots of stuff

So I know it has been a while since I last updated and A LOT has been happening so I will try to sum it all up....

Last week was Master's Week and I just love this week. There are people everywhere from all over the world, Chris has the week off from school, I have the week off from work, and we usually get free tickets to go watch the tournament. This year we went on Sunday and it was the prettiest day of the whole week. I had a nice date day with my sweet hubby. Papa kept Peyton while Mimi sat up at her parking lot probably wishing she was playing. We walked a lot and sat and followed Tiger around the course and just had a good time visiting with each other.
Also during that week we were able to get a lot of stuff done around our house. We are trying to get it ready to put on the market so we can move closer to Chris' school. It was so nice to have Chris home to do all the handy work and finish up stuff I couldn't do.

Another event that happened last week was.....we went to the dr to confirm there will be another little Wilkins running around coming Thanksgiving! We are eight weeks along and very excited! Feeling a little yucky, but overall feeling good!

We had many Easter activities within the past few weeks. One egg hunt at Wesley with the Massey's. It was rained out so they moved it to the gym. You don't quite get the same effect, but Peyton had fun picking up the eggs and opening them to find the treat inside. I got his picture with the Easter bunny and I just knew it was going to be a rough experience, but he LOVED it! He and the Massey kids all wanted to go back for a second time right before we left. We had planned on going to another hunt that they do out in Columbia County, but unfortunately Peyton was sick with the croup. Poor baby was sick! He did not feel good. And he gave the rest of the house the crud.

Lots more has been going on, but I will save it for another day. It has been raining for 2 days and now the sun is out! Back outside for walks, swings, slides and digging!

Once I figure out another way to post pictures without them all showing up going down from here I will let you see our many adventures. Thanks for wanting to keep up with our sweet little family!

Rain, Rain, GO AWAY!

It has been raining for way too long! Baseball games have been cancelled, which normally would be a good thing, but not when the rescheduled games are on Saturdays....YUCK!
Next week is Master's week! I can't wait! They city is crazy and full of people from all over the world. We have met some nice people over the years.
My mom is coming in town today and I am so excited! We are taking Peyton to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse LIVE Tour on Friday in Aiken! I think he is going to love it. I might be more excited than he is going to be but I know he will love it.
Not much has been going on with us, just the same old routine of game after game. One cute thing I have to share about Peyton is his new game. Forever we have done the animal sounds game well now he has turned it on us...he now asks us "what doessssss CHICKEN?" It is the cutest thing! He is just so fun. He is so funny and so full of stories! I can't wait for him to get a sibling and see how he entertains him/her.
