F is for FAMILY!

This is a collection of our most recent activities! Oh, how I LOVE MY FAMILY!
Here is Sadie squealing at her Aunt Lissie...
can life really get any better than this??
Here are their faces after I let them taste their special treat:
All-organic, all-natural, whole-wheat teething biscuits!!!
(I guess they prefer stupid Banana Puffs.)

Uncle Wade always makes EVERYTHING better.


Rylie looks sad that she is not getting to enjoy her wheat biscuit.


And with wheat biscuits in hand, they called it a day. :o)



Since Kurt and Mandy now live in Broussard instead of Brenham, we get to see them much more often....which is soooo exciting and soooo much fun!! We met up with them at Steamboat Warehouse in Washington. If you haven't been, GO! It's worth the trip!!!


Kurt and Mandy! They are going to be such wonderful parents!!
Carson is due in 4 weeks and we are all dying with anticipation!!

Paw Tee finally getting his turn to feed Savannah!
She looks quite content in Grandpa's arms. :o)


Such good-looking grandparents!


My sweet baby with her summer dress on!
Couldn't you just kiss those fat cheeks?!?!


Nana came to town and bought Vana her first set of flip-flops!
It looks like Savannah is ready to walk right off the table and go shopping with Mom!
Mommy is ready when you are, baby!!


Here is Kurt and Mandy at their baby shower!
By the way, I saw lots of things that I'll be stealing. Just wanted to let you know, Mandy! :o)


Savannah was SUCH a good girl for Carson's shower. Mommy was quite proud!

We decided to start a family tradition of passing the bassinet around to the newborn babies in our family....so Savannah is taking her last nap in it before passing it on to baby Carson!
What a little princess.


Does this make your heart melt like it does mine??

Thank you, Jesus, for my SWEET, SWEET FAMILY!

Rylie and Savannah...starting their GIRL TALKS!

Savannah and Rylie LOVE talking to each other....here is a video of their first recorded GIRL TALKS! I can only imagine this same video 5, 10, and 20 years from now with Savannah and Rylie STILL talking! Here are BFF's in the making....

Ponca, Arkansas... Population: 14

Savannah went on her very first vacation last week to Ponca, Arkansas!! She was SUCH a little trooper and slept the entire 8 hours there and back! She was a regular mountain woman! We had such a wonderful time and look forward to our next adventures in the mountains....so whoever would like to take us, we are ready to go!! :o)

"Alright, Mom. Let's get this show on the road already."


Beautiful Aunt Magic with her favorite niece.. ;)


Mommy and mini-Wade!
I think she looks like a Funfetti cupcake...
Ha, I could gobble up THIS cupcake!!
So we passed this 18-wheeler with MILLIONS of chickens flapping around with their feathers flying everywhere and screeching and bopping around and if that wasn't strange enough....when we passed it, we realized it was a TYSON truck!! The chickens were going get packaged up!! Don't look at this picture too hard or you might recognize some of the chickens on the shelf at Walmart!!!



8 hours later...we reached our cabin!!
Here is Aunt Magic and Sadie(?) doing crossword puzzles like
80-year old women.


Soooo excited to be on our first family vacation with ALL the little munchkins.

BRANSON, MISSOURI: Here we come!



Looking like mountain people in The Shepard of the Hills gift shop!



We stopped at Sadie's Smokehouse..and OH. MY. GOSH.
There was a buffet of fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and gravy = Wade's heaven.
......And apple, peach, raspberry, and cherry cobbler = My heaven.
YOU MUST GO!
Rylie and Sadie were the hit of the restaurant!
Everybody wanted to kiss on these sweet monkeys!
The Titanic Museum in Branson....it was AMAZING!


Waiting in line to go inside the Titianic...


Twins??? :o)


The view from our cabin. Stunning.



Ponca has nothing on Pineville..... ;)



Rylie and Sadie loving on the baby!!
Savannah clearly looks very pleased about all this new attention! Ha!


Rylie and Savannah had their very first hug! It was absolutely adorable.
Sadie was more interested in stealing Savannah's pacifier
.....and her diapers......and her toys.... ;0


Savannah and Pops catching some ZZZZZZs!
Like grandfather, like granddaughter.


POPS and his 3 favorite girls!

On our way home! The Ozark Mountains are GORGEOUS!
I don't know if you can see what's written on the truck, but
I thought it summed up our trip nicely:
"To God be the Glory!"

Finally home and all tuckered out.
Vacationing is very hard work. :o)
Thanks, Grammie and Pops, for such a WONDERFUL vacation! We can't wait for the next one! LOVE YOU BOTH TO PIECES! :o)

Press PLAY!

I know it's been YEARS since I last updated the blog...so I thought I would upload a video for your patience. I realize that Savannah looks very chubby in this video, but just remember that the camera adds 10 pounds. This was 2 weeks ago on our SECOND trip to Jena to see Grandmonty and Poppa!

About Me

From childhood friends to high school sweethearts, and now newlyweds and brand-new parents, Wade and I can only thank Jesus for His incredible blessings. Our three children are the ULTIMATE gifts from God and we pray that our lives glorify Him. He is our everything.
