Leapin' Louie!

Greyson had his first birthday yesterday surrounded by family! It was so much fun. We had a small family party at Leapin' Louies Lillypad (or something like that!) at the Radisson on 41st and 169. It was so much fun. Have to run, lots to do today, but here are some of the pics. I am sure there is a setting on my camera that would allow me to take pictures indoor with water, but for some reason it wasn't working. Here are the best pics! I am apparently a horrible photographer, I cute off most of the grandparents heads (oops! Sorry Dad and Vicki) and didn't seem to get one photo of an aunt or Uncle! Many thanks to Uncle Greg and Uncle Mike for playing lifeguard! P.S. Note all children are not pictured! This place was so fun, I couldn't catch a glimpse of them all...these are from the times I got them to stop..... Max and Owen...Best friends forever, I think they are being alligators!

Max shooting the super water gun!

Luke trying to shoot the gun with Papa....of course you can't see his head! (sorry papa!)

Daddy and Greyson going down the slide....I think Daddy is too big for the slide!

Has it been a year???

On Tuesday, my baby is turning 1. I really can't believe it. I can't believe all that has occurred in the past year. We got Sadie, Lukie, Greyson, we built a house, dad had open heart surgery, David started a new business...and the list goes on and on. But I have to say...I am in love with this little boy. He has a hold on my heart....and now I get to be a proud "Boy Mom".


You are such a sweet boy. You are so busy. You crawl around so fast. You have NO desire to walk. It is too cute. You just fly around on your hands and knees. You crawl up on everything, and you get into everything. When we tell you 'no' - you look at us and nod your head no back to us. You love your sister. You call her "bubba" though. I think it is because she calls you bubba. Daddy especially loves you because you evened the male to female ration in the family! My favorite part of the day with you is when you wake up. I can go in and get you, then bring you back to the couch, or my bed and snuggle up. You will sit in my arms snuggled into my side for at least half an hour. I love feeling the weight of you on my chest. You love to play peek-a-boo, play with your sister, and you like to clap...a lot! You are still into pacifiers...take two naps a day, and eat like a little pig. Thank you for being my sweet snuggle boy. I love you forever....

Big Changes....

We have had a big change in our lives. I have not mentioned it, because it only recently happened. My husband decided to leave the current firm he was working at, and go to work with an old friend of ours. I am very proud of him for taking the step out on his own. He is such a good man, and an incredible lawyer, and I am proud of him for following his heart. So we are praying a lot, about our new "business". Please continue to keep our family in your prayers as we step out in faith that this is what David was called to do. He has always wanted to start a law firm from the ground up and this was an opportunity he could not pass up. So while we are excited, motivated, full of dreams...we also have some fears. But we are wholeheartedly trusting that this is God's plan, as we bathed this in prayer.

Every night we pray for "Daddy's Business".....probably too much. Ragon has a purse that has scissors, markers, eraser and a ruler. Ragon calls it her "bidness". It is pretty cute. Our whole family is involved in the prayer process. Have a good week, I promise more updates soon! As you can see....we have been busy!

Matilda Jane!!!!

I have to admit that I love me some Matilda Jane! I have been dying to go to a trunk show - but for some reason, I can never make it. So I decided, if I have one...for sure I will make it. I discovered this line last year and I am IN LOVE with it. I wish I could wear it! (there are some mom clothes that are super cute!) Anyway - I am having a party on Monday, October 19th from 3:30 - 6:30 (if you come a little later - there is wine involved!) If you don't know Matilda Jane go to I am sending out tons of invites, but I might not get everyone, if you are interested post a comment and I will e-mail you the information and directions to my house. In the meantime - here are some super duper cute pics!
