These Girls....

My beautiful girls, my life. Oh how I love them all so much! How blessed are we?? 
This little beauty is 15 months old and into everything! She is so independent and strong-willed.  We have to beg her for kisses or to let us hold her at this point, but oh how sweet are those little arms that reach out and those little legs that come running as soon as we get home everyday?  LOVE it!

These two have enjoyed this summer! With all the swimming, softball, trips to the library, VBS's, and tea parties, they are having a ball.

She is too silly!
I just had to share this video clip.  Avery and her Daddy have done this since she was big enough to crawl.  He would chase her around the living room going "booga booga booga" and she'd just SCREAM and run (or crawl at the time) to me.  Now that she's talking more, she has started calling everything "baby".  She'll get down in our dog's face and say "Hey Baby!" then move her little fingers like she's trying to scare him and say "booga booga booga"! Ha!  It is hilarious!!  Wish I could get THAT on camera.

Last week, I walked into the living room and Avery had strewn Fruit loops all over the living room.  I got her out of her highchair and told her what a mess she'd made and how we need to clean it up.  She reached down, picked a few up, looked up at me and said, "I got it!" then proceeded to throw them in the garbage.  I sat there with my mouth wide open and said, "Did you just say 'I got it'?"  She smiled, said it again, and kept cleaning up her mess.  Whoa! My baby just said her first sentence! Not ready for her to grow up so fast!
Last night at Grandma's she asked for a peach.  Not thinking she'd actually eat it when she felt how fuzzy it was, I handed it to her.  She loved it! 

I ended up taking it away by the time she'd devoured half of it in hopes that it wouldn't hurt her tummy, and of course, she let me know how unhappy she was with me for taking it away!

Father's Day 2013

We started off Father's Day weekend with a fish fry at Audrey and Hermon's.  It was so nice to get to spend some time with family!

Saturday night we spent time with Ricky and the rest of the Scarbrough bunch, and the kids had a TON of fun playing on the slip-n-slide and in the pool.  I WISH I'd have taken pictures of all the fun they had (especially when KK went down the slip-n-slide with Dean!) Dean loved the slip-n-slide and Avery wouldn't have anything to do with it!
Then Sunday we woke Wayne up early  (or the girls did) with the happies they had for him.  I think the best gifts are the ones that come from the heart, and the girls had worked really hard on a book they wrote and illustrated themselves about their Daddy and them.  It was so sweet.  I loved how they said he was their hero and how they talked about the things they loved to do with him and the sweet things he does for them. 
I tried my best to get them all to cooperate throughout the day for a picture with their Daddy, and every time, someone (either Avery or Presley) did NOT want to have their picture taken.  This was the best I could get.  So sad...

Oh well...maybe next time! Ha! It was still a great Father's Day with an amazing husband and Dad of my own.  We spent lunch on Sunday with my Dad and my Mom's family celebrating my Grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary.  What could be better?

Presley's 6th Birthday Party

 We started Presley's party off with swimming!  We actually took this picture before all of her friends arrived.  There was just too much going on for me to get a picture once everyone got there.
Wayne and my Dad grilled hotdogs for everyone....
Then we made snow cones for everyone in the flavor (or flavors I should say) of their choice.
The grand finale of the evening was the outdoor movie screen we set up inside my Mom and Dad's garage (so they could watch the  movie before 9 pm!).  We set everything up like a theatre with a popcorn machine and movie theatre sized candy.  Even Presley's cupcakes went along with the theme! 

We ended up getting to keep the movie screen for more than one night so we enjoyed several much fun!
