Saying Goodbye

Jon got a new job. :((  Our friends, Shan and Jon, who have lived in Pineville and been a part of our lives for the past 6 years have moved to Charleston, South Carolina.  While we are so excited for them and can't wait to read and hear all about their adventures, we are sad for us and of not getting to be together. We wish  them all the best in the world and can't wait to visit!

Megan, Justin, and Emory came down for one last play day before their move.
Here is Emory's stink face because Aunt Shanny's movingggggg:

Baby Grant gave Shanny the stink eye, too!

Andrew loves his Emory Grace... here he is, kissing on Emmy's arm!

And here is Emory's dad laying down the law. Hahaha!!

Beautiful baby!

Our last few pictures together:
Cue the music, "Friends are Friends Forever..."

We really will miss our Shanny so, so much.

Shanny with all her babies!

Emory's last kisses for Aunt Shanny!

Savannah teaching Emory how to ride a bike:

From dance parties in the dorms to holding babies at the house, we will miss our Shanny Baby.

Signature ghetto pose.. from 6 years ago. Ha!!

And Baby Grant had a goodbye prize for Shanny..  Hahaha!

Our baby train!

So cuuuuute!

At Lifegroup, we said goodbye to Shan and Jon with dinner and a trivia game about them...  10 questions about their lives and TROY was the winner!!!  This picture is his prize, haa!  #cheapskate

Someone grabbed the camera and this is what they got, ha! "Goodbye to our sweet Reynolds family!"

Shan & Jon - We will be thinking about and praying for you as you settle into your new town!  We hope that y'all make friends quickly, visit often, and remember where you came from. ;)  Praying that you both continue to grow in the Lord, being molded and fashioned after His heart.. Hoping that y'all find the best coffee and the cheapest frozen yogurt hot spots, remember how to write a blog post (please!!), and that we get to make a road trip there soon. 
LOVE Y'ALL SO MUCH and can't wait to hear all about your new adventures!!!!!!!! 

Upwards Cheerleading

One of the best parts of being a girl... spa days and sleepovers!

Sugar and spice and everything nice..
That's what these girls are made of!

So I made the same bread recipe every day for a week, attempting to get the dough just right... and these were the final rolls!  Not quite my Mom and Jen's... YET. ;)

America's Test Kitchen's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  As crazy as ATK is, they made the best dang oatmeal raisin everrrr.

Sadie and Rylie are currently cheerleaders for the Upwards Basketball Team in Deville!  They are absolutely adorable with their little pom-poms and cheerleading uniforms! Here are a few pictures from their very first game!

Heyyyyy, Rylie!!!!

Sadie is the 'N' in WIN!

Rylie was closer to me, so I was able to get more shots of her than Sadie... I don't have favorites! ;)

Go-o-o-o Sadie and Rylie!!

Kayla brought the girls flowers for their first big performance!

The girls had their very own cheering section!

Two shots of our Sharbonos::

How precious is this?!
Love these two big girl cheerleaders!!
Hooorayyyyy for sisters to cheer with!!

Winter Play

After being stuck inside for days, the weather had finally warmed up enough to go outside and play! We loaded up the kids and headed to the park for a few hours of winter play!  Casey brought Landry over, along with her fabulous camera and took these amazing pictures!  As I write this, looking at over the snow, I hope they warm you up as much as they did me! :))

Love spending these winter days with my biggest blessings in the world!
