"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

Lovin' Summer

We spent some time in Tulsa this weekend with my family...we weren't there long, but we sure had some fun!I just love these of the kids!Emery had so much fun riding with the boys, until...

Cooper took one corner too quick, and about lost Emery. LOOK AT THAT FACE!!!!!

The kids have been saving up money and decided they wanted some new pool toys for the summer. Cooper picked out everything for all 4 of them and was too cute because he spent half their money on something their baby could enjoy...this little pool!

I think he enjoyed it too!! Good thing the house sold, this is country to set it up in the front!

Emery tried on her new reusable swim diaper. It was a bit snug!

And finally!!! Sadie will pedal a tricycle!!! The boys mastered this around 15 months, but sister was not interested at all! Crazy to think that this is when both boys started riding without training wheels! It didn't seem so odd at the time!

11 months!

These were so much fun to try and take! Man, she sure is busy!

She has 3 teeth now! She is walking all the way across the room. She still crawls, but is walking more and more everyday!

Emery LOVES her big brothers and sister. In fact, she and Sadie have a hard time falling to sleep with all of the games of peek-a-boo they play at naps and bedtime!

She lights up when she sees Cooper and Owen, she leans into them for them to hold her. It makes me mush!

Emery loves to swing, splash in the water, stick everything in her mouth and cuddle, cuddle, cuddle. She is also pretty aggressive, which I am sure is completely normal for a fourth child, right? I mean, she is learning from the best! She pinches, pokes, grabs and pulls. She slaps, yanks and screams. It's a hoot because she seems so tiny in comparison to the bigs, but we try and hide our giggles and smiles and remind her to be gentle.

I love this one!!!

She is yelling here. She's hilarious! She mimics the funniest sounds we make. Like I stubbed my toe the other day and let out a "ooooowie" and she echoed it back to me. I died laughing. It was like she was making fun of me!Look at that concentration!

When they saw me taking pics, they all wanted in. How come that only happens when you aren't planning on it happening?

I know. Shame shame that he's not wearing his helmet. But look at my lil guy go!!!

And for an extra chuckle I had to include this. It totally cracks me up to find these mystery pics on the camera! I love you one eyed Sadie, you little Stinkerpot. You make my heart smile!

I love this outfit! Thank you Kim for our sweet clothes!

Super Kids Day

It was so much fun to help out with Owen's Super Kids day at school. I love this pic for a ton of reasons...love all his sweet friends, love his smile, and I love how his feet are kinda turned in.

This is kind of dark, but so cute how competitive he is!

I have no idea who this first grader is, but she reminded me of Willow Smith. Isn't she adorable?

Owen's friends from school!

I was loving how much fun Owen was having with this dance. Their PE teacher taught all the kids a dance earlier in the year. So he played the music and had the kids do it for us...I was loving every minute of it. They were SO cute!

still dancing...

seriously...how cute is he??

Amir and Cailey

Love these girls! They are such sweeties and they come from incredible families. We've been so blessed by the friendships we've made at school!

I love these Super Kids Day games!

What's that I see?

Praise Jesus!!! We sold our house just in the nick of time. Just like God, huh? Perfect timing! We couldn't be more thankful and overjoyed to not have to keep it spotless anymore!!!

For Mother's Day my parents got me, my sisters and my grandma tickets to see Josh Groban. The concert was last night and it was sooo good and sooo wonderful to have some girl time! Thank you mom and dad!

Just some cute shots of Blake and the girls I got the other night. I LOVE this picture below. Dang...we are so stinking blessed!

Just had to hop on and share our wonderful news!!!

Lookie what I found...

When I uploaded the pictures from the camera...I found 47 that I didn't take. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall around here? Well, here ya go!

Most of them were not much of anything, but enough evidence for me to know who was behind the camera!

These are hilarious of me trying to do Emery's hair...my moving target!
