his first day of school.


On his first day of school he:
*woke up at 5:45 am
*was by the side of my bed at 5:46 am asking to get in the shower so he wouldn't be late
*showered, ate breakfast, got dressed with his shoes on, hair done and teeth brushed by 7 am
*couldn't stop asking when school was going to start
*was so excited for this grand adventure to begin
AND....a grand adventure he is having...he has loved every minute of it and I couldn't be happier for him.

why we love having daddy around...



reason # 429 and 430:
he makes such a nice arm pillow, especially when we are not at home..
AND he can hold heavy loads when no one else can!:)

whenever she hears the beep on the camera..

Maizie is so funny. Everytime I take out the camera and go to take a picture, the little beeping noise goes off and her head whips up with a huge smile on it. I feel like I never have to say.."Maizie, smile, Maizie, Maizie, MAIZIE!" Instead I just let the beep do it's job. Take a look:
beep:

BEEP:

beep:

how do they get so big?

Every time I look at pictures I have recently taken of my kids, I keep doing double takes because they are growing up so fast.
Booker is growing physically like a weed and is working so hard right now on reading. He works SO hard, even when I am impatient with him and tells me things like, "Mom, the tv is just so distracting to me all of the time." or "Mom, I have got the greatest ideas for what we can do today..they are just awesome." I love his sweet personality...he' s got a joking, competitive, happy spirit and it makes my life so happy.
Lincolns favorite saying as of late is "Mom, I just really love you." TO.EVERYTHING. and especially when he is getting in trouble. It is too stinkin cute. That and his obsession with certain songs that have to be played over and over again in the car. And his sweet voice saying "Yeah, baby" after every thing he does. Such a cute, sweet, loving, and stubborn boy.
and Maizie. Ahhhhh, she is so cute. (Can I say that one more time about my kids?!) She is a crawlin', starting to stand up on things, eating big people food, laughing, teething crazy girl. And is constantly talking...I love her talking, except at 2 or 4 AM.
Yep, I love them all to pieces and realize more than ever how lucky I am to be their mom and watch them grow. They help me be a better me and help me love life more than I ever thought possible.

a weekend of rest?

I think since being here in Vegas we have been here for less than 1 month. We have been traveling like crazy! This weekend we had a little vacation celebration because the BAR IS OVER! yeehaw! What was to be a restful weekend turned into kayaking and swimming at the beach, bbq-ing, hiking, playing, slip n sliding, eating, movies and fun.
It was some time to reconnect as a family and celebrate having our daddy back!

and that restful weekend??

well, we are teething on this end of the country, so 4:30 AM is our wake up time! yipppeee!

Such a fun weekend..thanks Tod and Kim.
