"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Busy Busy

Lots going on around here. So much to say and so little time to talk about it.
I hope to get on here soon and discuss, but for now I will just post some fun pics of whats been going on!

We were so hot and desperately wanted to be outside. If you notice by the shade...this was BEFORE 9 am! Holy poo Oklahoma has been hot this summer!
See how big she is getting! All of the big kids just clobber her with kisses all day long. I think we are doing a pretty good job of spoiling her rotten!

Our friends Keely and Jamila came over to play. Keely was just as obsessed with Emery as we are all with Keely!!! Thanks for coming to play sweet friend!

I have secretly arranged for Cooper and Keely to marry one day. They sure are cute together!

The boys have been sleeping in the same bed lately. We LOVE this and know that they are such good buddies. Look close and you'll see that Cooper was picking out Owen's hair when they fell asleep! And yes, we often sleep in our clothes (mostly Cooper does this). It's not a battle we want to fight!
Movie night! We rented a RedBox and cuddled...even Emery joined all of us! Soooo much fun!

Thank you Terra for our precious outfit!!! Emery has a matching "little Sister" one but she needs to grow a bit! Check out Terra's business here!
We went to Owen's classroom today and dropped off all of his supplies. He has such a cool classroom and such a sweet teacher! We are all so excited for him.

This is the day his teacher came to meet him. I was having so much fun I forgot to take a picture of them together...this is the only one I got as she was walking up to the door!

Owen in front of his cubby! He is so big!!!

This is one of the only good pics I got from this night! booo! My sisters and and I surprised our parents for their 40th anniversary. It was so much fun to celebrate such a wonderful couple. I could not be more proud of these two and the marriage that they have. Needless to say, Blake and I have been given two incredible examples of how God wanted marriage to look. This pic was when we all went outside and some dear friends sang several of their songs they loved when they were dating. Then a minister from their church led all of the couples there in renewing their vows. It was so cool! But I do love this pic of my mom and dad and then two of my sisters with their husbands. Happy Anniversary mom and dad!!!

Everyone is doing well and gearing up for our first real school year! Tomorrow we will have a 5 year old in the house! I cannot believe it. It seems like just yesterday we were driving to the hospital for Mandy to be induced.
