Catch up for 2011

Well as you can tell I am trying drastically to catch this blog up so here is a quick wrap up of all the fun we have had so far in 2011. It has been a great year and to think the BEST is yet to come. I am so excited!!! Hope u enjoy!!!


We had a great february with lots of valentines fun and playing outside and the annual dixie national rodeo!!! This is also the month we found out Baby Sanders #2 was on his way!!! Such an exciting time and we have been anxiously awaiting his arrival ever since!!! It seems like I have been pregger FOREVER!!!!!

This month my brother got married and so austin got to take his first airplane ride to Oklahoma City and be the ring bearer!! He did amazing and I couldn't have been more proud of him!!! The whole weekend was alot of fun and we are glad to welcome Jan to our crazy family!!!

Okay so April was quite a busy month!! We had lots of fun just being outside since the weather finally got pretty. We headed to the zoo early on in April with his best bud Ray!! We also hit Kidsfest in Ridgeland where Austin got his first "tattoo"!! He was so proud!! We hit just about every Easter egg hunt around and hosted our own little Easter egg hunt here at our house with friends!! Easter was great and he got an overflowing basket full of superhero madness!! As you can tell the superhero obsession is still in full swing over here!!

We kicked off the summer with finding out the sex of Sanders Baby #2!!! We did a reveal with a cake and the inside was either pink or blue!!! It was a lot of fun!! We also headed to the beach with friends the first week of May and had a blast. It just keeps getting more and more fun each year with Austin!! He also started TBALL and Corey coached his team. It was so much fun to watch and they all did great. Other than sports we pretty much spent the summer at the neighborhood pool!! By the end of the summer we had a pro swimmer on our hands!!!

June was definitely a hot one and we were pretty much outside the whole month!!! From Braves games and tball to the pool. Tball was quick and fun and we ended the season with a fun party at Cici Pizza!! Austin got his second trophy and was very excited to add it to his room!!! Its hard to believe our summers filled with sports has already started!!!

Another HOT month and we pretty much once again lived outside. Austin caught his first lizard and named him Lenny! Unfortunatley he didn't stay with us too long!! Austin LOVES to ride his bike and I have been a trooper being pregger through this HOT summer. We have had a lot of FUN and can't believe next summer we will have two little boys running around!!!!

Well the big thing that happened this month was Austin started pre - 3k at pinelake!!! He absolutely loves going to school!! It is amazing how much he has changed over the past year since we have put him in mother's morning out and now pre- k. We have never once had to fight him to go and he was ready to go his first day!!! We also hit our usuals pump it up and chuck e cheese the week before school started!! Finally we headed to the circus at the end of August with my parents for a little family fun!!!

And finally that brings us to the present!!! This month we are just enjoying our last few weeks as a family of three. Jackson Lane Sanders will be here in two weeks and we can't wait, but it is also bittersweet that it won't just be the three of us anymore. Austin is SO ready to be a big brother and I can't wait to see them together. We have been savoring every moment with Austin and I find myself amazed and the big boy that has literally grown up in the blink of an eye. I am so blessed to be his mom and can't wait to be the mommy of two sweet boys!! Hopefully my next post will introduce Jackson and hopefully it won't take me as long to post as this one!!!
