Keeno time

Here is my great group of Keeno friends. Not quite everyone was here this night, but we had a big group anyway . We meet once a month at someones house and play for gifts and then play some more to steal gifts. Some nights you go home with 3 some nights none. This night I broke even!

First communion

On Sunday L.C. was finally able to receive his First Holy Communion. The rest of the class did theirs last Sat. night, but he was so sick he couldn't make it. We didn't want to push him to do it and then throw up the body and blood of Jesus...that would be horrible. He was upset last weekend because everyone had come to town to share this special day with him, and he didn't want to disappoint them. He is such a sweet thoughtful little boy and he makes us so proud in all that he does. Everyone at church did such a great job on Sunday to make his day very personal and special.

Happy Birthday X 2

Well my babies have turned 3! I know everyone says they can't believe how fast time goes, but it is sadly true. They are growing up way to fast and I don't like it. This is a new stage for me. I have gone through this age 2 other times with the big boys, but I have always had another baby (or 2) to follow. They really are at a fun age, and I guess I don't remember this stage as much with the big guys because I was a sleep deprived, milk cow! It is so neat how they play together and the little conversations that they have. Too cute. We celebrated their party on Sat. with family and of course our dear friends the Warbingtons! Happy Birthday my sweet little ones.

Okay, so what is the big difference, besides the obvious, between a little boy and little girl?

NOTHING in our house!!! She fits right in!!

Hanging out

Since No-Bo finished school last week he and the twins have become big buddies. It is neat to see him in the role of the big brother while L.C. is at school. On this day I saw these 2 blondies hanging out in "the woods" beside our house, so I snuck up on them to get this picture. They were just sitting there chatting. They also sent Pipi inside to get snacks for their hike. It's moments like these you want to burn into your brain!

The wedding day

Here are the bridesmaids in the limo on the way to the wedding.

My cuties...don't you love how Pipi smiles???

J.J. dancing with his Aunt Jamie.

My sweet, handsome boys!

L.C. really came out of his shell during the wedding. You should have seen him dancing. He was all over the dance floor letting loose. This video it a tame dance!!! I love it!!

To my Mom

I just wanted to let you know that you are the best mom in the whole world! I am the mom that I am because of you. You have been such a great role model to all of us growing up. The nurturing love that you have shown us has carried over into our "grown up" lives and into our own little families. You have such a giving spirit and will share or give away any of your treasures. There is nothing in this world that you would not do for your children, and too often you are not thanked enough or appreciated enough for all that you do. I am so very proud that you are my mom. I hope that one day when my children are grown they will feel the same about me as I do about you because I couldn't ask for a more wonderful, beautiful mom. Thank you for just being you. I love you to pieces!!!!

Down by the bay...

...where my children roam free

What broken foot?

This past weekend we traveled to Mobile, AL for my sisters wedding. We stayed a couple of nights with my youngest sister in Dauphin Island. She lives right by the bay. The kids love exploring around there.
