These cuties on picture day at school. I swear there is something bout school pictures that makes kids look and feel awkward. But at the same time there is something I love about it.
This cutie with a pony tail....That is a milestone that you are allowed to document, right?
Celebrating Grammy's birthday with her. We love Grammy so much and are so lucky to get to be so close to her. These kids look forward to every sunday and I just know they will always cherish our Sunday dinner ritual at Grammy's house! What a blessing!
Makenna and Kara are such perfect best friends for each other! They both think so much alike and are so adorable about it. I went to pick Makenna up one day and she and Kara were taping feathers not a shirt, trying to make bird wings for themselves. And then they went outside and tried launching off the trampoline to see how they would fly. It was so cute! I love these cute kids!
Any chance to cuddle this little cutie is a good excuse for me! What is better than a warm, sunny day, sitting out by the pool while your kids swim until they are exhausted and then fall asleep on your lap? How can you not love summer?
This boy and this dolphin hit it off like you wouldn't believe. The littles and I snuck away for a day at sea world now that the big kids were back in school. It was a gorgeous day and we had a ton of fun just playing and laughing. And this dolphin was seriously posing right next to Conner any time he went by the glass. It was the neatest thing. I think it actually boggled Conners mind. He just kept looking confused and surprised. It was so sweet.
Carys had a bit of a hard time adjusting to her big sissy and brother being gone all day long. She gets sad when we drop them off and then gets so excited as soon as she sees them at school when we pick them up. She is so cute about it. She runs to them, gives them hugs, holds their hand as we walk to the car with a big smile on their face. This is one of the big reasons you have a big family...is because you pray and hope that your kids will love each other and rely on each other and be best friends.
Kinder started with a bang! Zero the hero visits the kinder classes on day 10, 20, 30, etc...and leaves them a gift. On day 10 they got capes!!! Are you kidding me? Lucky!!! And I LOVED the way Kellen chose to decorate his bear....a Padres bear! Goooooo Padres!!
Naturally, Conner see's his brother with a bear he gets to decorate and then he needs to make one himself. Kellen is at an age where he gets annoyed with the fact that his brother wants to copy every thing he does. Todd and I try to explain that it just means that his brother thinks he is cool and wants to be like him. He still doesn't appreciate it too much, but I tell ya, from a mommies point of view it is the cutest thing. Conner just adores his big brother and wants so badly to be big! And he's growing up without even realizing it!
Look at this cute girl! And her first time with a double scoop ice cream cone....thanks to a gift card from her birthday. Once again, a noteworthy milestone, right? (you know I am joking, right?....Kind of anyway).
At Kellen's "All About Me" Parade that the kinder kids do every year. We got to watch him march around singing about how special he was. And then have a little picnic lunch with him. This picture of Kellen and Conner at the picnic just might be my favorite pic of these two boys ever! Totally describes their relationship right now!
This boy....that hat is so much a part of who he is, he climbs in the tub with it on without even realizing it! I love that crazy kid and his silly ways!
