Hello Monday!

I love summer time and I love days spent with these two cuties!  We started off our week right with a little CFA.  I mean who doesn't love CFA?  I am a bit over it right now, though!

Hello lashes.  This kid melts my heart daily!
Little posers.  Lefty learned from righty!  She has had her moves down for years!  
Yes she is too big for the play area at the mall.   But, she is very cautious of the little peeps and she is still 3 years old to me.  So that counts, right?

Thankful for these girls and that I was chosen to be their momma.  It's not always easy, but it's always a blessing.  

Fun filled weekend.

Our weekend consisted of lots of swimming. 
Smoking a little meat!:)
Eating yummy dessert. 
Playing with the toys we were selling at our garage sale!  Of course these blocks haven't seen the light of day in months but boy howdy you bring them out to sale and they instantly become "my favorite thing ever!"  Ps. We still sold them!:)
whats a garage sale without a lemonade and cookie sale too!?!
A sleepover with uncle Michael and a trip to this amazing playground!
They sure had a blast and were spoiled to no end!
A trip to Pack Rat for some looking around!:)
A car ride to and fro...

We had a great weekend. It was exhausting...garage sales are not for the weak. They are some serious work but soooo worth it!:). 

Blessed by this life I get to live and the people I get to live it with!  God is good!

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Psalms 139:16

Sick little Bella

Bella woke up Wednesday morning with fever and just was not herself. Her face was sooo red and swollen and we were not sure what was going on. 
I hate when my girls are sick but I'm not gonna lie I sure love them wanting to just snuggle with their momma. 

When you have a fever and you are in the tub trying to cool off, You can do pretty much anything you want. Including eat ice cream:)
Such a trooper.  Hello sweet little pink watch. It just does something to me. :)

So we went to the Dr. and she had fifths disease. It basically causes you to  look like you have been slapped in the face!!  He said you could take a pic of her and slap it in a textbook. Yeah that's how we roll!!;). 

So thankful for the healing in her little body!

A weekend of celebration.

Our weekend consisted of celebrating our first born turning 7, and her amazing dad!  She wanted to celebrate her bday, along with my moms and brothers, at the lake. All together. This girl loves her family and she loves getting together with all of them. Thankful she values family and time spent together!
Daddy and his girls. They adore him and he feels the same!  Such an amazing dad. Always willing to do whatever it is they want him to do!  So fun!
Father's Day breakfast and Crack to the Barrel. Yes I rename almost everything!  Just puttin my own spin on things....;)
Love these sweeties.
the birthday girl hanging with momma!  Um... Why does she look 14?
A day spent with momma is what she wanted for her bday. Melt my heart. Yes please.

Nails of course. :). Followed by lunch at "the place that has the white sauce on your noodles." A little O to the G. (Told ya) A girl after my own heart!  Then a little trip to end a whole month of Bday celebration!!:). Hey why not?!!  

Thankful for this little 7 year old!!

Birthday weekend!!

Alyssa decided a couple of months back that instead of having a birthday party she just wanted Maddie to spend the night and us all go to Silver Dollar City. So Thursday we picked up Maddie after VBS and we made a weekend of it!! We started the weekend off with cookie cake and pizza of course!  What's a party without the two??:). 

Friday we got up and headed to get donuts and got on the road. These girls were excited!!
We have arrived!!  I got the girls matching outfits. One because they are just too darn cute, and two because We could spot them from anywhere. No worries...they were never out of our arms length reach!!:)
Love this picture. 
Sweet friends, with a sweet heart for Jesus. 

Oh just sharing a pretzel at lunch:)
That face. She's is one sweet girl!
Devouring leftover nachos. 

We finished the day having ice cream. Of course we did!!:)

Weekend part 2

We got up Sunday and ate our tradition of before church donuts...and Tay had his bacon and egg biscuit!
So thankful for her. Isn't she gorgeous?!:)
Little bit adores Meg!
Oh this makes me happy!
Meg and Tay were showered with gifts and love while they were here. I know they were so blessed!
Our last day!!:(
Out to lunch. Alyssa has a slight crush. I had to explain to her you can't be crushing on married men!!
