Car Show

 

Saturday morning we headed out to Collinsville to the Hogs and Hotrods Car show.  We lost count on how many times the word “awesome” flew out of Samuel’s mouth.  He’s been a car lover from Day One.

Apparently he has also been a runner since the beginning as well.  See below for a pic of his first car show at 2 and a half.

 

Same haircut but that sweet little baby face is gone.  Sad smile

Avery was not overly impressed with the whole thing.  She was probably wishing she could join Bubba in a full on sprint.

And Molly sported her usual picture smile.  So lovely.

He found himself a fun toy!

The rain held off for us and it was a fun morning.  I think we found a new tradition!

Birthday Party

 

Cori and JD came to help us throw a party for Grammy and all of her friends in honor of Grammy’s birthday.  Our garden party was moved indoors so we wouldn’t melt but it was a fun day anyway.  We are thankful to all who came to celebrate with us.

I’m posting pictures when I should be taking advantage of naptime so I will let them speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Ahhh, Summer

 

Summer is my favorite time to snap pictures of my kiddos.  Beautiful light and sweet little sundresses, it just doesn’t get any better.  One evening this week the older two were away and Avery was showing off in the front yard.  She is turning into such a little lady.  My baby is growing up faster than I am ready!

Samuel is into playing the “raise your hand if” game.  Avery loves to play along and her hand goes up no matter what is called out.  Their favorite to tell her is, “Raise your hand if you’re 100!”   Doesn’t take much to entertain at our house.

And finally, they were sitting sweetly on the stairs this morning discussing what we should do for the day so I had to get a jammy pic.  Sibling love.

Birthday Buddies Toddler Edition

 

Avery got lots of attention around these parts last weekend while the big kids went to visit the cousins.  She spent the first day looking all over the place for them and then decided that being an only child wasn’t such a bad gig. She loved getting to what she wanted when she wanted it.  Sorry it didn’t last long, Sis!  But you are thrilled to have your buddies back.

 

One evening we got to see our friend Maria.  It’s been awhile since we got the two together.  It used to be a lot easier to get a group shot. But we managed a few where both were almost looking at the camera.

Just keeping it real here:

Avery is a bit of a hands on girl.  She’s been hugged, kissed and wrestled her whole life and she jumps at the chance to do it to someone her own size. Maria was not overly thrilled and preferred to play at a distance.  Can’t say that I blame her really!

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.
