Fun in the bathtub!

Clayton and Colby were almost the same size!

The Splash Pad- Clayton loved the water!

Clayton loved aunt Brittany showing her around the splash pad

Cooper had the best time and made lots of friends. :) My favorite line of the afternoon, "Kids, wait for me, wait for me, kids!"

Kenndall cheesing.

Okay, so much has been going on that I haven't been able to put any pictures up of our trip to Belton over Labor Day weekend. We had a great time with Stephen, Jennifer, Abriella and Colby. Oh yeah, and Dad, Janet, Nat, Matt and Brittany. There was a houseful! It was really nice, we hadn't all been together since last Thanksgiving so it was great just to get to see everyone. It was also my first time to see baby Colby. He is such a chunk, and has a great smile! The kids had fun playing at the park and at the splash pad.

Kenndall is 2!!

Opening a couple of presents today, we got her some Star Wars figures because that is her favorite movie. Nerdy I know, but she loves it.
This is what her lips look like when she says, "I am your father...." like Darth Vader.

Kenndall got a kitchen for her birthday. It is so neat. She always is trying to help me in the kitchen, so now I can tell her to go to her own kitchen. :)


Kenndall's vacuum, she loves to pretend vacuum.



Kenndall with her my little pony and outfit from her cousin, Taylor.


Kenndall is excited about her baby, she took it to church the next day.

Today Kenndall is two! Wow, how can time go by so quickly. She had a wonderful birthday with lots of family and plenty of great gifts. I love my baby girl!
Here are some things I love about my sweet girl.
She is a great helper, already she loves to help me fold laundry, load dishwasher, put away toys, she is a wonderful helper.

She loves her big brother. She thinks that he is the peanut butter to her jelly. They are best friends (and sometimes worst enemies).

She is very affectionate, always wanting hugs and kisses and giving hugs and kisses.

She asks lots of questions. "What is it, mommy?" "What's that noise?"

She notices everything.
She sings non-stop in the car, if there is no music playing, she makes her own music.

She is always up for something to do, she loves going to the store, the post office, the bank, she is always ready to go.
Everyday I pray that God will work in my life so that I can teach her how to be a godly woman. I love this girl!

Okay, now for a tidbit about the other little girl, she is walking everywhere!! The video is a little shaky.

First Day of School







I am so happy that Superkids started today!! They were all happy to go and happy to see their mama when I picked them up. Kenndall was especially excited about her backpack. She carried it in on her back, which is funny because it is really just as big as she is. None of the kids were sad one bit. Yea! On the way home from school, Cooper told me that he colored a monster in his class and that he ate a monster, but it was gross and he spit it out, I asked him what it tasted like and he said, "Like a spider, spiders make me sick." It was really funny. I then asked Kenndall who was in her class at school and she said, "Papa, Janet, Taylor and Britten." Sweet silly girl. So the first day of school was a great success!!
While the kids were at school, I got to eat lunch with two of my favorite friends. God is so good to give me people like them in my life!

Random pics and my emotional outlet

Clayton's 1st Ponytail!!
My girls.

Brian playing guitar for the kids, they like him to play Somewhere Over the Rainbow, ABC's, and Twinkle, Twinkle.

Kenndall loves to sing with her daddy.

The kids watching Veggietales, Clayton wants a chair like the big kids so bad, she wasn't very happy with the bumbo.

Today I am so thankful for my wonderful family and precious friends. God has blessed me in a wonderful way, and I am thankful for my sweet little life. I have been emotional this week, so this is my outlet. Here is just a short list of things I love.

1. I love the way my husband calls me his "boo"
2. I love the way Cooper says, "I laahhhve you"
3. I love the way Kenndall sings all day long.
4. I love the way Clayton is so determined to be just as big as her brother and sister.
5. I love the way that the smell of fresh laundry sometimes reminds me of my mom.
6. I love the way my friend Jenny laughs.
7. I love opening the blinds in the kitchen every morning and looking out on a fresh world.
8. I love that I can see in my friend's eyes, their care and concern.
9. I love the way that when I hugged my friend Cheri today, I felt like she was comforting me.
10. I love the way that I can look back at my life and see so clearly the hand of God.
