Pretty sure this is what perfection looks like! 


Miss Aubrey ran into Willie this weekend and was beyond excited!  She is still talking about having her picture taken with him.  Glad to see that she has the same Love for the Wildcat's that the rest of her family does!

Marlatt Fair...

We attended the Marlatt Fair last Friday night with our cousin's and everyone had a wonderful time. It was a great way to end the week! We started the evening with games..lots and lots of games! We then went outside for a train ride and a bounce in the bouncy house. We then enjoyed a wonderful dinner of hot dogs, soda, chips, and brownies...every kids ideal meal! We can't wait to do it all again next year.

Dance Pictures...

We had dance pictures the other night...I can't wait to see how they turned out...of course they wouldn't let parent's go back in with them so I have no clue how she did and it is driving me crazy!  Isn't she pretty?

6 Months...

My sweet baby girl turned six months this weekend! Six months...Really? Already? I know I have said it a million times but how is this possible...seriously? Six months? We had her well baby check last Friday the 20th, and the six month mark happened Saturday the 21st. She was given a good report at the doctor, and their are no major concerns right now. She is finally out growing her reflux, and let me tell you how wonderful it is! She is SO much happier. She weighted in at 16lbs13oz which put her in the 69th percent for weight, her head was 43.5 (60 percent), and her height was 25.5 (43rd percent). She did have to have three shots which always makes me SO sad (to top it off Aubrey had to have shots too since she was two days shy of being 4 when I took her a couple months back). She is doing all the normal baby stuff, rolling over, talking LOTS, eating baby food, etc. We are close to sleeping through the night which is great, and she really is a very content baby. I am so happy I get to be her mama! I get a bad mommy check mark as this is the ONLY picture I took of her on Saturday.  I did however have some photo's taken professionally last week so I will share those as soon as I get them back.

Butterfly Field Trip...

Grandpa Mike, and Grandma Ginger took the kids on a field trip with Oak Grove to the butterfly exhibit a couple of weeks ago (by a couple of weeks I mean February). The kids had a wonderful time and Aubrey was chosen to help with the demonstration. Needless to say she loved all the extra attention that came with the demonstration!
Miss Aubrey getting ready to volunteer!

Being chosen as the volunteer!

Grandpa, and Grandma said she was VERY excited!

Pretending to be a butterfly.

After the demo they got to go and see all of the butterflies. Here is Aubrey holding one. She LOVED it.

Colten was more concerned about making his craft!

Thanks to Grandma, and Grandpa for taking them. They had a great time.

A few weeks ago the boys, Uncle Brett, Grandpa Mike, and Grandma Ginger all went shooting at the farm. Needless to say the boys had a wonderful time and are all ready to go back. The farm is an old house, and land that my dad and his wife Ginger bought a few months back. They plan on renovating and moving there in the next year or so. It is so nice to have a place for all the fun stuff in life ex: four wheelers, go carts, camping, etc. I am sure we will spend MANY hours this summer there! I'm not crazy about the idea of Colten shooting a gun but he loves it and is all boy. My dad and brother are really safe and take all the precautions. I'm sure they will be going again soon!

WOW! Another successful crazy weekend in the books. We had TONS of Easter festivities, and the kids enjoyed EVERY minute of it. Justin had the day off which was wonderful...I had forgotten how nice it is to spend an entire day as a family. We have so much to be thankful for and Easter is a great reminder of all we have been given. The Easter bunny left a note with some candy at our house on Sunday morning letting us know where, and when we would be able to find our baskets as well as our eggs to hunt. The kids were beyond thrilled with that, and ready to get the day started.Colten excited for the day!


Love these four! Bricen spent the day at his dad's so he missed out on our festivities.

Pretty girls.


Family photo. Justin and I are so blessed. Poor Claire was SO tired.

My big ones and I!


This was the best shot we got of all of them. Claire wanted no part of taking a picture!

Finally the Easter basket's were found!

Time to hunt some eggs.

Once we finished hunting eggs it was time to divide the loot.

My little Easter bunny.

I think she may just be an animal lover!

With the babies.

These two are going to have so much fun growing up together.

Have I mentioned how blessed I am?

I think these girls LOVE their daddy's!
