Happy Memorial Day

I love to play this little game where I look back and compare!

Here was Addie's first Memorial Day Weekend. I remember her being less than 2 months old and me realizing she didn't have a patriotic outfit so I went out and bought her one! I loved dressing her up and posing her in her bouncy seat for a photo. I think she had a blow out and ruined her outfit 10 minutes later! Ha! But at least I got my picture! Lol!

And here we are 2 years later!! Kaden & Xander gave Addie her patriotic outfit for her birthday this year and I just love it!!

In all seriousness, I would like to say how grateful I am for all who have served, are serving, or will serve so that you and I can live this life! The two soldiers that I am thinking about today and thanking God for are Blue and Micah. Thank you for your service!

Yesterday we celebrated sweet Logan's third birthday at a cool gymnastics place! Addie had a blast!

But I'm pretty sure her daddy had even more fun than she did!! :)

Happy birthday sweet Logan!

And finally we had another fun time of swimming with the Cannons at their pool yesterday!!

Happy Memorial Day weekend!!!!

First Swim this Year!

Our neighborhood pool got a makeover this winter! It is so much more fun now and more appropriately sized! To celebrate Daddy's return from Georgia, we took a family trip to the "splish splash" yesterday! Addie had a blast wearing her new bikini Rylee gave her for her birthday! She is so much fun!!!

Some of my favorite childhood memories are family trips to the pool on Memorial Day weekend in our new swimsuits for that year!! I love starting traditions like that with our girl!

Happy Summer!!

May Joy!

Addie and I have been loving the month of May! The weather has been amazing so we've spent a lot of time outside!! Here is a sampling of what we've been doing....

We had Addie's mother's day tea at school... It was so sweet. She kept telling me all of her friends' names.

Addie has a friend named Emma who surprises her with donuts sometimes.... My girl digs donut holes!

My Dad sent me these beautiful flowers for Mother's day!! Wasn't that sooo sweet? I really enjoyed them!!

Outside time!

We were lucky to have lexi over one day to play! We all enjoyed watermelon outside!

Sweet Xander turned 1 a few weeks ago!! He is the sweetest, happiest little guy and we love him sooo much!!

One night before night night..

Last week Addie and I went to see Giggle, Giggle, Quack at tge Dallas Childrens Theater!! We met some sweet friends there and had a really fun time!

Hi Carol (auntie m) sent Addie this adorable octopus beach towel...Addie loves it! But Mommy accidentally led her to believe she was going to get to SEE her " Hi Carol" and when she realized that wasn't so, she was very sad...,

Relaxing one rainy her morning look :)

Saturday lizzy turned 4! She had a ranch birthday party, which addie loved!!

And finally this weekend Addie stayed with her bubbie and popee so we could have a date night!! We had a wonderful time and Addie had a blast as always!!

Love X 3

My amazingly talented photographer, Chrissy, and I often trade services.  I make shirts for her kiddos and she takes incredible pictures of Addie/our family.  I love her work!  I asked her to send me a picture of all three kiddos in their big sis/lil big sis/lil bro shirts I made them for Patton’s birth in January.  Check out this picture!  I am in LOVE!  Is it not so precious of all three of them!!!??

Berkley is 3, Patton is 3 months, and Elliott is 5 (in kindergarten)

I just had to share this photo!!  THIS is why I love what I do in my little sweat shop upstairs…it’s all for the kiddos…they make me happy.

Easter Sunday! (oops!!)

I realized that I never blogged about Easter Sunday.  Since we went to church on Saturday night, it slipped by me, but Easter Sunday was so much fun this year, so better late than never!

Addie woke up to a basket that the Easter bunny left her!  She was so cute!  She loves new coloring books and hugged her new bunny.  (Don’t tell her, but he was reused from last year’s Easter basket! Ha ha!)DSC05444DSC05449DSC05453

We headed over to Papa Jinks’ house, Brandon’s grandpa’s for an Easter Lunch and family celebration!


Addie always enjoying seeing her Nana and Leelee!


Nana and Leelee gave Addie a super fun Easter basket…her favorite was the pack of ELMO stickers!


Family Shot!


Addie was surprised to see her Bubbie, Poppee, and Uncle Thomas come over for the egg hunt!  Papa Jinks has a great yard for hiding eggs!


We have a picture similar to this from when Thomas was Addie’s age!  Time flies! Addie loves the “Gol-Carts” at Papa Jinks’ house!


Addie was DELIGHTED to receive another Easter basket full of super fun goodies from Bubbie and Poppee! This basket had this sweet bunny in it that she loves!


We are blessed!  She was so fun this year!  It just gets better each and every year!
