Blast From The Past

We're sitting at Papa's house and came across this video on his computer. I may have posted this a couple of years ago, but it brought us huge smiles watching it today so I thought I'd post it again. Where has the time gone?

School Days

Here is a post of nothing but pictures of Addalyn before school. They uploaded in a ridiculous order so don't mind the summer attire and the winter attire being all mixed up. A few of them were "Spirit Week" days (school spirit day, western wear day, favorite book character day...). This little diva has too much fun posing for pictures to show off her cuteness. And the best part is, she's got looks AND an amazing desire to learn. She LOVES school.







Giggling Girlies

These squirrels were being extra squirrely the other night. As always, my camera was near to capture their singing/giggling. :)

Future Tennis Star?


Remember a few posts back when the girls had a shot at tennis during the Libery Fall Festival? And remember I said that Macey was really interested but missed every ball they tossed at her? My plan was to wait a while before investing in the sport for my little darling, but turns out, she WON an awesome gift package from that day! Tennis racket, balls, t-shirt and 13 weeks of lessons at a country club in Liberty. I cannot tell you how stoked this kid was about winning. I really think she would have been thrilled had she won a piece of gum, but this is her first chance to do something all by herself, without her big sis. Exciting day for all!
videoPS--as scripted as this video may seem, all I did was ask her to tell me all about what she won. You'd think she wsa reading off a teleprompter!

Precious Princess Pumpkins

If you ask Mace though, they were "gorgeous pumpkins" for Halloween...
...and I have to agree :)



Preston is NOT impressed with his costume...especially since he doesn't get to reap the rewards the big kids get!
Macey Lee got tired so Uncle Steve came to her rescue! With a baby strapped to his chest and Mace on his shoulders, he gots lots of "awwwwww!'s" from fellow trick-or-treaters.
Time to head home and check out what all that hard work brought them this year!

We will keep working on it. :) She definitely has the desire to get out there everyday and give it a shot, but it doesn't help that her bike is too small. She's added a bigger bike to her birthday wish list for next year!

WORLDS of Fun

Yes, this was also part of our insanely action packed weekend. :) We got to spend the day at WOF as part of the Worth Harley Davidson staff appreciation day. Of course, the first hour or so was filled with tears and screams because of the "scary" guys in costumes doing such frightening things such as dancing to Cupid Shuffle and Single Ladies. Haha! After that though, the kiddos had a blast (well, mine did at least, I think Zan and Sterling got a little bored spending the entire day at Planet Snoopy!)

yes folks, this IS a picture of my daughters with a "mascot" SMILING! this is a huge deal that they are no longer scared (I should write it in their baby books!)

Liberty Fall Fest

More awesome memories were made at the Liberty Fall Festival last weekend. (we went non-stop last weekend!) We enjoyed a parade, lots of strolling around downtown Liberty, some ice cream and then the little ones tried their hands at tennis. Macey told me a few weeks ago that she wants to start playing tennis (??), but after watching her miss the ball 4 times in a row, I decided I may give her another year or two before investing in that sport!

I can't remember why Macey was pouting here, but boy, can this kid pout! People even stopped to comment on the poor little girl which of course only encourages it. We just took this opportunity to sit with her and take a break from walking until she was done. :)

and here the goofball is thinking she's pretty funny by pretending to be asleep
