Mother’s Day 2015

 

What a fun-filled weekend it’s been!  The rain held off at all the right times and despite the forecast we had plenty of time outside.  We got to spend time with both grandmas and Mike and the kids did a great job of making me feel loved and  appreciated.  I’m so glad to call all of these people my family.

 

So these first two pictures are not of mother’s day but I had to throw them in because these tiny cousins are too sweet not to be included.  There’s a lot of memories to be made with these two and I hope that one day they will get together with their own families and talk about the great times they had growing up.

Nothing says we love you like a floor scrubber!

Mother’s Day morning.  Avery gets yanked out of bed 5 minutes before we leave the house for Sunday School.  She wasn’t quite up for smiling yet.

Grandma and her boys.  That’s a good looking group!

Molly is always up for posing.

There’s a smile.  What are we going to do with this wild girl?  One day this week she spilled a glass of milk, started the Keurig with no cup to catch the coffee and smashed half a stick of butter in her hair.  That was all in about 15 minutes time.  She did one right after the other all while I was cleaning up the previous mess!  If you’re wondering it takes three baths to fully wash butter out of hair.  But it’s silky smooth now!

She is so full of it.  And to think she’ll really be feeling good after Thursday.  We’re going in for tubes and adenoid removal this week.  Sleep is in our future!

Just when I think she looks like me…

Molly has been working and working on riding her bike this week.

And this guy has kept me on my toes in the stain removal dept.  He comes in every night with a mud stain up his back from riding through puddles with his buddies.

18 Months

 

Our Avery Jane, aka Avy girl is 18 months old!  What a wonderfully fun and exhausting 18 months it has been.  In the last 6 months we’ve battled skin issues and ear infections which interrupted much sleep and I’m sure some language development but now that we’ve got that all under control we’re feeling much more rested and happy.  I bet we have a full time talker on our hands in a few months.  There’s plenty of babble and grunting already!

She’s always been happy by day but now that she feels better the silliness is really shining through.  Can we say Samuel Junior?

 

IMG_5586

She runs with the typical toddler high step and it’s about the cutest thing you’ll ever see.  She also likes to push a chair over to the counter and help herself to whatever she finds.  We can thank the siblings for that little trick.  Nothing is safe from this climber.

IMG_5587

She loves to play with and torture her siblings equally. And she has recently discovered the awesome people called Grandma and Grammy.  If either of them is around Mom means nothing and she’s not about to let them out of her sight for fear that they load up the big kids and leave her at home. 

 

IMG_5588

She has a wild uncontrollable mullet.  That hair knows I’m dying to put a bow in it and just flat out refuses to grow on the top.

IMG_5601

She eats just about anything as long as there is plenty of it.  M&M’s are her favorite treat. 

IMG_5605

 

 

IMG_5606

She makes the best faces you’ll ever see.  She can communicate almost anything with a furrow of her brow.  She’s famous for her looks around church.

IMG_5623

We love our sweet girl to pieces and we love watching her grow!

 

 

 

 

And at the request of Molly…a running shot:

Easter 2015

 

We had a beautiful Saturday and a dreary Sunday for Easter weekend this year.  So we hunted eggs on Saturday and dressed up on Sunday.  As always the kids had fun and the adults enjoyed watching.

Uncle Mike got some bonding time with Baby Dean during the egg hunt.

Group pictures are like herding cats.

One shoe off and one shoe on…

Classic Avey face.

The boys!

Samuel designed and decorated the cake.  Molly photobombed the pic.

IMG_5551

And then had to have one of her own.

 

We attempted the sunrise service for the first time this year.  We got rained on and Avery was a tired girl by the end of the day.  It might be a few years before we do it again.  We sure loved squeezing on Dean.  He’s the topic of many conversations around here so it’s always fun to see him. Of course we like Aunt Cori and Uncle Cason too, but let’s just face it, Dean is the favorite.  Haha! We did miss our Nashville cousins though and Samuel drew a map of how to get there for me this morning in case we might visit soon.  We hope all of friends far and wide had a fantastic weekend worshipping our Savior! 

He is Risen!

Spring!

 

If you watch Cauillou, then cue the song “It’s Spring, It’s Spring, we’re really glad it’s Spring!” song.   If you’ve never seen that delightful show then thank your lucky stars right now.  Ha!

Anyway, we love warm weather! We also love the ability to start school at 7:30 in order to make time to go out and explore.  Today we headed to Oxley Nature Center.  We will definitely be returning very soon.

These two see hiking a little differently than I do!

Growing up!

Little Sis doesn’t like being left out.

See stick, make into bazooka.

I could just eat her up.

Love her.

And the requested hair shot.  Her friends might want to see it she says.
