RBI....Sort Of

Mitchell's team played the UH cougars last night. Last inning, he was the last batter...3 balls, 2 strikes....bases loaded (2 outs)! This stuff really makes me nervous.......Pitcher releases the ball and BAM, knocks Mitchell in the head with the ball! He advances to first and brings a runner in! WE WIN! Coach's speech to Mitch......."Way to use your head, Mitch!" I will take a W over an L anyway we can get it....Mitchell has a hard head!!!


On another note....He is getting antsy to start driving. He is almost 14, so one year away from his permit. Joe and I have started letting him drive around our neighborhood. He likes to drive to the end of the neighborhood when we leave to run errands....I snapped these earlier. Yes....he is driving MY TRUCK...THE ONE I DON'T LET JOE TOUCH...he is a better driver than Joe!

Joe Knows Sales!

Joe just got back from his annual sales conference in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He received two awards: Top Dollar Increase and Top Percentage Increase for Sales. I am sooooo proud of him. He received these plaques and a nice little cash bonus. He also received an American Express gift card from a vendor for selling so much of their product. Because I had to sacrifice and stay home with the boys while he was in FLORIDA.........I think I should get to spend that card on some retail therapy! Can I get an amen! (ha ha) Congrats Jose! You are an amazing Husband, Father, & provider!

My Sleeping Beauty!

I forget how sweet they are when they are sleeping! Drew had overnight company two nights in a row...It was very quite in my room around 4:30. He never naps, guess he can't party like he thought!


Since Joe has been out of town, I had movie night with a couple girlfriends. They jumped at the chance to get some lovin on Drew. He loves picking on Sally and Liz...He wasn't very happy when he saw these pictures!


Earlier during the day, the boys tore into some boiled crabs....Gotta love my lil coonasses!

Berry Pickn'

We went to a farmer's market this morning to get fresh produce. A friend turned me onto this place about a month ago. The produce is great and very inexpensive. Considering my boys eat everything we buy on Sunday by Wednesday, grocercies are a big expense in the Jefferies house.

At froberg's (the market) you can pick your own strawberries. It was a really nice day to be outside. Mitchell swears we picked too many. HOWEVER, it is now 5:15 p.m. and they are half gone! Should have listened to the voices inside my head that said to get more!

Super Saturday

Drew had a scrimmage today and did very well....He played pitcher, 1st, & shortstop. They scrimmaged the LSU Tigers. Gotta say I don't like cheering against that purple and gold. It's not in my genes.




After the scrimmage, Joe and I went to the rodeo with our friends, Kim and David Rush. It was fun to have some grown up time. We watched some of the activities before seeing Blake Shelton in concert. It was a great evening.
Lots of Bull Riding, Muttin Bustin, & Calf Roping. We will take the kids back. I think Drew would really enjoy this!





Blake Shelton



The four of us.


Me and Joe - I love this picture

Shoulda Been A Cowgirl

Today, I got “roped” into chaperoning a field trip to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo for a bunch of Business students at my school.  Me and two of my pals, Sally & Kim, decided it would be fun to take the group…..It was.  We are lucky to have a student body so well behaved.  I was very impressed.  Well they started “pushing” Sally and me to get on the mechanical bull.  I, of course, caved and said, “I’ll do it if you do it”…Famous last words….I’m sure there is video and pictures all over Facebook, MySpace and YouTube by now.  Spencer and Mitchell will be mortified!

Here are a few pictures from today!  Lots of them, so just warning you!
