I'm back...i think :)

So it has been about 18 months since I have posted anything...lots has happened!!! God blessed us with sweet baby Tate on November 24, 2009. Three children have definitely made life more interesting to say the least!

Just a short recap of the past year:

  • Mason started Kindergarten this year and we have loved watching him grow and learn...his school and teacher have been such a blessing to our family. He loves Auburn football almost as much as his dad (if that is possible).

  • Lyla Grace turned 4 last week and carries the title of "assistant mom" very seriously. She loves being a big sister and helping me whenever possible. I love her independence and patiently trying to keep up with her mood swings...not sure who she got that from ;)

  • Tate has been such an awesome addition to our family!!!! It has been so fun watching him interact with Mason and Lyla Grace! He is already copying everything Mason does...good and bad!

I'm so excited about what God has planned for us in the future and hopefully I will be better about sharing!!!

 Tate liked taking the eggs out of his basket...Lyla Grace was trying to show him what to do :)

The past few years we have been going to Gigi's church Easter egg hunt. Gigi loves showing off her great grandchildren to her friends and we love any excuse to spend time with her. So thankful she has been healthy enough to have a relationship with our children.

Ft. Wilderness Weekend Celebration

We celebrated Lyla Grace's 4th birthday weekend with the Wright family at Ft. Wilderness resort at Disney. Great weekend with great friends!!!
 Kids getting their "crazy" out before bedtime. I was a little worried about sleeping with 3 kids in a tent but everyone actually slept.
 Lyla's party

 Clay cooked us a pancake breakfast
 boat ride with the birthday girl

 Roasted smores with Chip and Dale and sang campfire songs. Lyla Grace got a little extra attention from the campfire singer and she got to share with hundreds of people that she is 4. We all sang Happy Birthday...she felt so special and her face was glowing.

Lyla's birthday snack

Clay, Tate and I took Lyla Grace a special snack to school to celebrate her birthday with her class. She was so excited to wear her crown and share her birthday song with her baby Tate.

No more Justin Bieber

So people keep commenting on Tate's hair calling him Justin Bieber. Today I finally broke down and cut it. He looks so grown up :(
