Cole is 5 Months Old!

Cole is 5 months old! He is getting to be such a big boy!!! He weighs 16.1 lbs and has the meatiest little thighs! He started cereal just a few days before he turned 5 months old. He is enjoying it and is actually somewhat of a clean eater! We'll see how long that lasts. He is rolling all over the place and is so close to sitting up! He will stay put for a few seconds if you prop him up just right. It's just a matter of time! Cole attended his first birthday party this month....his big sister's! He had a blast watching her from the observation deck. He has got to be the happiest baby I've ever met! He literally wakes up with a big grin on his face and will go to bed with a big grin! When you walk into a room his little face just lights up! I love this little guy and am so glad we have him!!!

Happy 4th Birthday My Sweet Girl!

Gracyn is 4 years old now!!!! Where has the time gone?! So when I asked her what kind of party she wanted several months ago she said a rainbow and star party.She LOVED watching Tom and Jerry Wizard of Oz and the song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." So, I decided to just go with a rainbow theme. I had a lot of fun planning this party!

These cake pops were delicious!!!
I was pretty proud of my rainbow wands!
It's always fun watching all the little kids run around and play in the gym. Last year, the majority of the kids stayed in the toddler area, however, this year they all wanted to play in the "Big Blocks" foam pit and on the big trampolines.

 I love her sweet face!!!
For some reason, Gracyn has been talking about roller skates and skate boards for the last several weeks. So what did she want for her birthday? Skates and a skateboard! We talked her into asking for a scooter instead. I told her it was like a skateboard, only with handles. She accepted that. We got her a hello kitty skates, a hello kitty helmet and pads, and Aunt Janaca got her a Hello Kitty scooter!

Super Excited!!!
The day after her party was her actually birthday so Clint and I took her to her favorite place for brunch...The Castle (Briar Rose.) After brunch, we stopped by the park so she could try out her skates and scooter. She had a blast!!!! We are so blessed to have such a sweet, little girl. I just love her so much! Oh, and for her 5th birthday party, she informed me that she wanted a STAR party! I guess she realized I took the star part out of her "Rainbow/Star party." OOPS!
Blowing out her "4" candle in her monkey bread.

She's a Pro!

Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet!

I've heard a lot of parents say how they didn't care much for Halloween until they had kids. It's absolutely true! It is so fun to watch my sweet girl get so excited about her Halloween costume and to have so much fun trick or treating! She loves it! This year, Gracyn was a blue butterfly. The cutest thing about this is her saying she was going to drink out of her flower. I wish I would have gotten it on video! Since Cole is so little, I decided to just put him in a football onesie and have him be a football. I have to admit...he was the cutest football I have ever seen! I told Clint he needed to put his Hog jersey on and hut hut Cole. He didn't think it was a good idea. I'm still going to make him do this!

Clint taught Gracyn "Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet." While we were trick or treating at G-rise's house Gracyn said, "Trick or Treat, Smell my Feet, give me something good to eat. If you don't, I don't care. I'll punch you in the face!" We all got a kick out of this. No idea where she came up with punching someone in the face!


 Isn't she such a beautiful butterfly?!
 He loves his Mummy toy!
