Hoppy Easter....a little early!

I couldn't resist posting my favorite proof from Preston's Easter session last week. He had so much FUN with the him sugar, feeding him a flower--SO CUTE! Can't wait to get my pics in :)

Finally--A NAP!

Preston has not slept at MDO this ALL! It has really been challenging these months to deal with a toddler who has not slept all day. You may think Jeff and I are hermits, but truth be told we can't really venture out at night with Preston because on Tuesday-Thursday he really needs to be in bed at 7:00 or else he might pitch a random fit...ok, the odds are high.

How EXCITED I was to get this picture on my phone yesterday from Mrs. Velissa! Truth be told, I was working and Miss Paige was picking him up from school and I had told him she would get him an ICEE if he judgement worked!

Now, if we could only figure out how to make this happen every day. Did I mention he ALWAYS naps at home? Now, he doesn't go willingly or anyting but it is usually not hard to get him down. Hmmmm....

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

After a week full of parenting challenges, it was nice to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon with my two best guys. Pictured is Preston playing "SuperWhy" on my iPhone (what did we DO before the iPhone?????)as he, Jeff and I enjoyed some outside family time this evening. We had a grill night, with the main attraction being a "Gator Egg." I had never heard of this but it is a mozzeralla stuffed jalepeno stuffed in a chicken breast wrapped in BACON...geez I need to run but it was delicious!! I hope all of Preston's friends (Georgia and Kennedy that I know of) are feeling good as new and ready to tackle this new week!!!

Throw me something Mister!

Well, it has been yet another week filled with ups and downs at the Parkers. Out of NOWHERE, Preston came down with a throat infection Wednesday, complete with fever and a really bad cough. That, coupled with a little tumble he and Miss Paige took down the stairs Thursday (I had to keep him home from school while I went to work) that required us going to Green Clinic to have his foot x-rayed (it is fine) made for a tiring, busy and not so happy couple of days.

However, things started turning around when Nana and Pop came Saturday morning to take P to the circus in Monroe. I can tell from all of his vivid descriptions that he had a great time. His favorite moment, when the clown "lost his pants!"

And today was just a great family day at the Krewe of Highland parade in Shreveport. We almost didn't go, because of the earlier mentioned cough and chilly weather, but by the time we got to Shreveport around 2:30 it was a BEAUTIFUL day! Preston really did have a blast hanging out at the CTB tent with Cullen and Anna Kate (notice he snuck a sugar from AK!) and had his "Throw me something Mister!" down PAT! I will admit I have never been much for North Louisiana Mardi Gras celebrations, but this was a great time and we will definitely do it again...

Happy Mardi Gras!!
