Cousin Fun

We spent last week at Grammy & Papa's. 
 Besides spending fun time with G & P it always means cousin time!  
We spent all day Monday together & the kids had a blast!

We started at a "farm" & ended with a playground.

This guy greeted us.

Papa could get all the turkeys to gobble back to him...takes one to know one!

Aubrie making sure Colton could see all the animals.

WPS!  4 baby piglets which the 4 big kids each named.

Lily helping Colton swing.

Aubrie & Luke solving the world's problems.

Colton "geting" the girls.  They thought it was hilarious!

Life: According To My iPhone

1. It bothers Aubrie that the construction workers next door leave their trash on the she went over & proceeded to pick it all up!  
2. Lily's first (and it will NOT be the last) time washing the dinner dishes. 
 I just hope she still is as eager when she is 12!
3. Bferg in an apron cooking my Mother's Day brunch.  
Totally attractive!
4. Mother's Day on the Lake!!!!!!!!!! 
5. Bferg is encroaching in on my sun! 
 Fish on the other side!
6. I will never tire of these sweet morning moments!
7. This is totally Lily.  
Dress, heels, legs crossed & purse on her chair!

Mother's Day

Totally cliche' but from the time I was little all I ever dreamed of was becoming a Mom.
God has allowed me to have that dream fulfilled & I could not be more blessed!

Love my sweet babies!

Pomp & Circumstance

The school year is over & we have closed the chapter on Pre-School.
Bferg & I could not be more proud of her.  
We have watched her blossom from a very shy & quiet little girl into a leader who is outgoing, friends with everyone & ready to spread her wings.

Too Big Too Fast!

It is safe to say that I'm behind in my blogging....  
I wouldn't mind much except that it isn't even summer yet & we've not even been busy.  
Summer is just around the corner.
It is so close we can taste it!
I'm not really sure where March or April went; but they are gone & with the end of the school year we are welcoming in a lot of "growth" within our house.
Saturday Aubrielle realized that her front two bottom teeth were loose.
BIG moment for the whole family.
I think that Lily was just as excited as her big sister.
And yes, we've all taken a turn wiggling.
By Monday she had figured out how to blow bubbles with her gum.
Yet another BIG moment.
"Watch this one Mom," is the phrase of the week.
On Tuesday morning I was doing my daily "did I brush my teeth good enough" assessment when we discovered that she had a 6 year old molar coming through in the very back.
I jokingly told her that it was too much for me to handle as a mom that she needed to stop growing up right before my eyes.  Literally.
Fast forward 6 hours & during our afternoon play time she decided that opening her pool inner tube plug (because we can smell summer...why not play with pool floats in the house) with her teeth was a good idea.
Imagine screaming from her.
Screaming from Lily over the blood.
And a frantic Mommy trying to figure out what happened to her tooth.
We quickly recovered the tooth from the living room floor, got the bleeding under control with a paper towel & began discussing in detail the Tooth Fairy.

Who needs a door knob when you have an inner tube?!?!

I remember when that little tooth came in!

Golden coins (chocolate) & a note from the Tooth Fairy.

Tomorrow she will graduate Pre-K & then we are DONE with the milestones for a while!  
This Mommy cannot handle much more!  :)  It is bitter sweet watching your babies grow up.
