Alexandra's Confirmation - Saint Thérèse of Lisieux

This girl of mine is special.  One of the biggest moments in her life turned out beautifully, she was so excited and so prepared and ready!  One of the Bishops came and Ainsley Grace got to Alter Serve at her sisters Confirmation and for a Bishop!  It was really neat seeing her up there.  And, of course, we have so much love for my dear friend Carla Palmer for being Alexandra's Sponsor.  A very special night, Mumsie and Grandaddy drove in just for the evening.  Thank you so much for coming and making it special for her!!

Anderson swaggered in his bow tie.  He was decked out and very happy for his sister.  Whitaker... He slept.  Until the reception. He heard the word "cookie" and he woke up instantly. ;)


Congratulations to my beautiful God-fearing child.  We love you SO MUCH.

2015 Halloween, Costumes

Well, Whitaker is a lucky kid and had two costums this year.  He wanted a Monkey Costume so he could be like his Daddy on Halloween, but then he BADLY wanted to be the Incredible Hulk at school.  FINE we said.  The big kids really wanted to see his classroom... He was so excited.

Anderson and his friend went to a Halloween Party.  Anderson wanted to be a rapper.  AnderJ

 Ainsley Grace had a Walk like and Egyptian Day at school.  I got to play and put makeup on her.  She was so beautiful!

 For Halloween she was Thing 2.  So cute, with her sweet friend Hannah!  Sweet friends ever.

 My Sweet lulu spent Halloween as a bunny with her friends.  She had fun!

Mumsie and Grandaddy held down the fort passing out candy while Daddy took the boys Trick or treating!

First and Last Middle School Carnival Dance

 I'll never forget Lexi's first Middle School Dance and I was really in shock that it was Ainsley Grace's turn..... They both said it was a lot of fun.  They got ready early with their friends and went with their buddies.  It was fun shopping for dresses.  But, with Lexi getting taller and skinnier we could not find a dress long enough that fit.  So she opted for jeans and looked sooooo grown up!!!

The Fair

We went to the fair with a whole gaggle of kids!  It was fun to take the train and get down there.... Although the fair is so expensive it was kind of a bust, it's just not fun anymore bc of the expense.  The kids had an okay time, I think they have more fun at the school carnival tho!  Anyway, here are some cute pics.


King Tut

Anderson was great in his class play.  He is always sooo movtivated to memorzie his lines and cues.  He does a great job!  He LOVES drama at St. Thomas Aquinas.  He only gets one more year... This was a great play.  We love Stax of Wax!

Wanted for Cuteness

There is NO way around it, this is the cutest kid I have ever seen.  He is funny, sweet, naughty, super super creative and just down right CUTE!  We are obsessed with this kid almost too much.  It's like we are not saving money for College we are saving money for Bail bc we spoil him rotten.  I'm trying to get back on track with discipline but OMG he is just so cute!  Here are pictures from him at his preschool The Children's Center.  He went to a field trip at the arboretum too, it was great fun.  Only disappeared like 5 or 6 times.... Totally manageable.
