Six or Sixteen?

Little miss Kelsey is going to have a birthday very soon, and she will be six years old. I cannot believe that my baby is going into first grade this fall! She likes to pretend she is grownup, and it kills me! "Stay a baby, baby!"

But here she is, wanting to be sixteen...and her daddy indulges her, so she got to "drive" the car today. Hmm...let's not give her any ideas, Scott!

Sidewalk Chalk

No summer outdoor event is complete without sidewalk chalk! I loved these shots...the girls were having so much fun!

Aunt Kenna and Tyler

As you can see, my love for my newest nephew hasn't changed a bit. He was a little fussy today, but even that didn't deter me from hogging him - just a little bit!

Of course, none of my blog posts can happen without a few photos of Tyler. Here he is, at 14 weeks, so sweet and beautiful. That is my sister, holding him, and his daddy in the background.

Family Time

My girls got to spend alot of time playing with their second cousins today, and they all had such a good time. Family time is so important, and today we had alot of it!
Aren't all these girls so cute?

Memorial Day Fun Part Two

I bought a catch game for the kids, but the adults took to it quite well! My grandma even got out there to play catch with my cousin, David James! We were all surprised at her dexterity. I had no idea she could throw a ball, let alone catch one! She told us all that she used to love to play volleyball! Really? Amazing! It was a great day.

Memorial Day Fun

Today was so beautiful, and we had a great big picnic at my mom and dad's house. All my dad's family was there, and a few other relatives and close friends. My sister and her family came, and we got alot of quality time with each other. I love to see the happy, relaxed faces of my family.

Pure Joy

This is pure joy! I love to watch my girls when they are happy. Today was such a beautiful Memorial Day. When the girls went outside this morning, they couldn't contain their joy...they both took off running, and I caught these fantasic shots of them with their feet off the ground!
Such fun and happiness. I wish them much more of these kind of days in their young lives.

Childhood is fleeting, it passes by so quickly. I look at my girls, so carefree and happy, and I remember my childhood. They remind me of my sister and me...and of the fun, long days of childhood!

I pray that Scott and I can be the best parents possible to our girls. We were both blessed with very loving families. I hope that we can do a good job, raising our girls up to be good moral people. They are so innocent right now. They barely understand that there is evil in the world.

I want them to grow up, knowing that being a good person is important...that having high morals is a necessity. I want them to be Godly, patriotic American citizens, and always stand up for what is right and true! Right now, they are sweet and kind (most of the time), and believe in God. I love that about my girls. They are friendly and loving toward everyone they meet, no matter color, or religion or economic differences. I hope they stay that way...that we can raise them up to love all people, no matter who they are or where they come from.

Meredith was playing the other day, and I overheard her conversation with her Barbie doll:

"Jesus, You ARE God! And God, You are the Only One that IS!"

That is good theology, right there. I think she's been paying attention in church!

More Summer Fun

We all enjoyed the warm weather today...the girls played in the sprinkler, and we all had a popscicle. Even Lucy!
I love when my girls pose for me...aren't these photos adorable?

Sprinkler Play

It seems that summer may be here! Today it was so warm that I let the girls play in the sprinkler...they had such a great time, and I got quite a few memorable photos. I love it when they play well together! They are very blessed little girls, to have a sister so close in age. They really are best friends..and sometimes, worst enemies. But if you ask them, they say that they each have the best sister ever.

This is my little angel, Merry. She came downstairs the other day and told me that she was an angel. She found a white turtleneck, a white summer skirt, white socks and then put on these green wings. Isn't she sweet? She can be angelic...occasionally.

Tyler at 11 Weeks

Here are some new pics of Tyler. Isn't he sweet! He is enormous. I cannot believe he is only 11 weeks old/almost 12 weeks old. He is so sweet, and just loves to coo and talk to me.

Springtime In Our Backyard

Its Springtime in our backyard. That means that the girls want to be outside as much as possible. That also means that the mosquitoes are back with a vengeance, and I am back to keeping a very close eye on Merry. Every time she gets a mosquito bite, it swells up to two or three times the size of normal mosquito bites. She gets feverish, and cranky...ugh. So, the other night she got two or three bites, and I have been monitoring them closely. So far, so good. No signs of infection, but I did go out and buy bug repellent and some little bracelets that are supposed to repel the mosquitoes. We'll see if we can keep the amount of bites minimal! Hope you all are enjoying some lovely spring weather and blossoms this week! God bless you!

Merry's concert

Merry's Spring Concert

Merry LOVED singing in her spring concert. She was so animated.

More Family Fun

This is my sweet sister and her youngest son, Tyler. He looks just like his Mama, doesn't he?
He's a BIG baby! I love how sweet he is. He rarely cries, but loves to lay on the floor and kick his little feet like crazy!

This is my mom. She is beautiful. She is the best Grammy. She can't get enough of Little Tyler, just like his Auntie Kenna (that would be ME!). Grammy and Auntie Kenna sometimes try to hog the little guy...we just can't help it! I'm very thankful for my beautiful family. God has blessed me beyond belief.
