Random, Random (time for a blog)

**2015 has started off with a bang and not necessarily in a good way.  We lost my grandmother 3 months after Pappy (tomorrow would have been their 62nd wedding anniversary), cancer, normal Winter sicknesses, Brent studying for his boards, boards, and an upcoming knee surgery.

**I have not taken any pictures with my camera since Christmas.....which in turn leads to less blogs, because let's face it...the best part of a blog are the pictures :-)  So, I thought I would include some pictures from last football season that I never posted while I ramble....

**I registered Hampton for Pre-K the other day.  Can you believe it?  If he gets in....he will ride the school bus next year!  Am I sad that my "baby" will be in Pre-K next year?  No!  I'm definitely more of a wahoo parent then a boohoo parent :-)

**One of my favorite things about after Christmas is that for a couple of months everybody has plenty of matching socks and underwear.  Where they disappear to is beyond me.  In six months I will realize that I'm having to do laundry more often then I would like just for everyone to have clean underwear.....and I won't just go out and buy anymore, I don't know why.

**For some reason my favorite shampoo that works the best for my hair is Head and Shoulders.  I feel like an old man when I have to buy it.  A close second is Herbal Essences, either the blue (Moisture) or yellow (Honey, I'm strong).

**Hampton and Anne Lowry are really starting to play together....which means less fighting.  Seriously, lately they have been playing together for sometimes an hour or so....without fighting.  This is major and glorious.  I LOVE watching/listening to them, warms my heart :-)  One of the things they love to play is "Mommy and Daddy."  Where somebody is the Mommy or Daddy and the other is the baby.  It is pretty funny.

**Hampton + scooter = Preciousness.  He is really good on that little thing and I love watching him ride it....sooo cute!  He prefers it over his bike.  This would be a good thing to take pictures of the next time we take it to the park....have I mentioned it's the cutest and I definitely want to always remember!  Phyll and Granddaddy gave it to him for Christmas, it's a Y Bike scooter.  I highly recommend.

**Speaking of Hampton....a little boy and his TT, I swear!  If you don't watch him go potty there is no telling where TT is going to end up.  The other day, I walked in after he had gone to the restroom and it was EVERYWHERE.  I'm pretty sure he just used the back of the seat as a backboard.  I was mad.  I mean, in the beginning, during the "learning" phase this was acceptable, but now he knows how to do it right.  We've also had to have the discussion that the trashcan that sits beside the toilet is not an acceptable place to aim.  BOYS!

**Anne Lowry, seriously, cracks me up multiple times a day.  She is so smart/observant and talks so clearly it's scary.   One of the funnier things she has started saying recently is "I smell sum-pen" as she crinkles her nose.  Really, don't try to sneak a poot around her....she will smell it....and comment :-)  

**While these ages are trying, almost 4 years old and a mature 2 year old, it is so much fun and gives new meaning to going and doing.  I mean, it feels like it is more for them now than me....and they actually might remember it forever.  This is also scary :-)    Does this even make sense?

**Looking forward to baseball season.

**Told you this was random :-)
