102016 – 102216: Homecoming, Camping, Family

We’ve been busier than usual this week. Which says a lot.

The kids still love Tiger.

I forced them to let Tiger pick who he wanted to sit with. And he chose to sit right in between them.

I believe we officially have his fleas gone, thanks Advantage.

And then we had Homecoming stuff. Kailey was in the parade. She wore an adorable little dress. And she’s adorable herself.

After the parade got rained out (so much rain, so many wet kids… it was funny and it wasn’t.) We all met u and ate together. Me and my brothers took a picture because we never do that. I look awful because my hair was still wet from running in the rain to my car.

I even got a picture with my nephew, Bradyn, who hates taking pictures. I had to sneak and get this one.

And then Friday was actual homecoming. So, Kailey and I took some pictures in her pretty dress. Here are some of my favorites.

A true laugh.

I really like this one of her and Nick.

And of course, I had to get one with her and my Luc.

And then homecoming was over and we all took a sigh of relief. Lucy was upset that Kailey didn’t “win” Queen and I had to explain how that worked with Kailey being a junior.

The boys took a camping trip on Friday so Lucy and I had a girls morning. Donuts!

Then we went to Sam’s and Walmart and looked around and had a good ole time. And then we made it home and got unloaded and waited for the guys. They came in and showed us all their pictures.

Didn’t realize how much I’d miss this little guy and his Daddy, too!

Papa J met all the boys and I know Judah loved that.

My little outdoorsman.

And thanks to uncle Sam for taking these. (not the government, our actual uncle Sam…) haha!

And that’s been our week. This week is set up to be MUCH slower paced, and I’ve already gotten done a lot of my grocery shopping, so I’m hoping to get a lot of school done and get caught up on housework from last week. Y’all have a good week – I’m so glad fall is finally here! (Even if it was just for this weekend!)

090916 – 091016: Kaileys Surprise Party

I’m going to try and post a couple of blogs over the next couple of days to get me caught up. 

We pulled it off! She was surprised! 

We did a luau themed sweet 16, and she loved it. Emily and I had a blast putting it all together and it couldn’t have been more fun!

And we made a little photo booth to play in. And it was fun. 

This is the first picture the 5 of us have been in, probably since one of our weddings. And maybe not even then. These are my 1st cousins. We all grew up together, given that our moms were sisters, and wanted to see each other often. 

I am quite thankful that they raised us together. 
And Bruce. My dad. Ever delightful. 
And my grumpy kids. Yes, I’m including you Kailey. 

Kailey got an Instax, instant camera. Basically a new Polaroid and it is the coolest ever. 


Overall, the party was a major hit. I’m so glad everyone that was able to come attended and it made it awesome. 
Love you guys!

062316 – 062516: Cousin Visits

My kiddos are creative and I truly love that. We got home and unpacked and they wanted to paint. So, we painted. 

Lucy got some cute little bird houses for her birthday and she was kind enough to let her brother paint some with her. They had so much fun. 

Then Thursday we went swimming! 

We stopped by and got my niece. My beautiful girls…


Truly crazy how much they favor. 

The blond beauties. 

I jumped in the shower and when I got out, found Lucy playing with Kaileys hair while Kailey read fair takes to her. 

Love my sweet girls. Kailey slept in Lucy’s bed and I haven’t seen Lucy that excited in a while! 

We all had fun and I’m planning on getting her again this summer. She’s going to be a Junior in high school and I can’t believe my eyes. 

I mean, you know they grow up so fast… She showed me pictures of her from just like two years ago and I cannot believe how much more grown she looks. 

And Lucy too. Her birthday is this week. Tuesday. After Tuesday I’ll have a 6 year old. I cannot process. 

Hope you’ve had a great weekend filled with family and fun too!

011116: Driving Permits

I took my pretty niece to take her learners permit test. She passed!

  
Lookout world! She’s on the move! 

She’s such a sweet girl. So glad I could be a part of this big day with her. My kiddos love their Kailey, too. 

We went to the library, and checked out some books. I can see that Lucy is much like me- when I get a new book and I sit down to read- I devour it. I love getting a good book. And we got home and Lucy got her books (Gerald and Piggie books) and was after it. She didn’t stop til she had read all 3. They are easy to read books and she doesn’t need my help with them. I think that’s why she likes them so much. 

Anyway… That was our day for the most part. It was a pretty good Monday. 

Congrats, Kailey!
