Homecoming 2013

Win or Lose.....and there sure is a lot of losing....but we sure love some MTSU tailgating and football!
 Love that dear friends now carry on the tradition with our children!

 I love that I gave Elise her first sucker....and when I tell my mom that, her response is, "That's what you think?" Does she look mischievous to you???
Happy Girl!

Loving Fall...

Pumpkin Patch with our sweet cousins!!!

Baker Lost a Tooth

Baker lost his first tooth!!!!  He was brushing his teeth before we are usually pushing it!  As he spit in the sink he goes, "Mommy what is all that red stuff?"  And there it was in the middle of the sink!  He brushed it out!

You can't really see the "space" because his permanent teeth are already coming in!  So we are actually hoping they fall out soon to make room!  He has "rows" of teeth at this moment. My baby is not such a baby anymore!  Love you Baker Man!

You know a dream is like a RIVER....

We love the river!  Any river!  And I love that that same passion is being instilled in our boys!  This was their first "white water" experience, however, it was far from white water.....a few spots of the lower Hiwassee river with some good low key "ripples."  Either way...the boys loved it!  Thanks to my parents who hooked us up with a great cabin with a pool and minutes away from the river!

Not a bad view!!!

The kids love their Uncle Burt!

Splish Splash It's a Birthday Bash

My first baby is 6.  How did that happen???  And my (most likely) last baby is 1.  How did this happen???  The years are flying by too quickly.  Between the schedules, dinners, laundry, day to day routine of just ticks on by.  But one thing is for sure....we are two very blessed parents!!!  Since Baker and Elle's birthdays are only days a part we decided to sort of throw Elise in with Baker.  He invited some of his favorite buddies (and Mommy and Daddy's) to come swim, slide, shoot water guns, and grill out.  I think everyone had a blast!
 Happy Birthday Little One!

Baker was excited about his "big" cupcake!

 Just chillin poolside with our cupcakes!
 Mommy's besties!
 The awesome Daddy's playin it solo with their kiddos (except Josh)

Silly kiddos.  Unfortunately we missed out on capturing all the ones that came to the party!  Mommy forgot to pull the camera out at the beginning!  We love and appreciate all our dear friends and family that love our kiddos so and make such an effort to invest in our lives!  Thanks for celebrating with us!

Back to School

 I can't believe my first baby is officially starting Kindergarten.  Yes, he pretty much had a year of it last year in Readiness....but now it truly begins.  No more holding back time.  He is officially growing up!  Baker is going to a wonderful school this year and we couldn't be happier with how well he is doing!

 And this one....He looks like he should be starting Kindergarten...maybe even first grade.  Caleb is a beast!  But oh so lovable!  This is his last year in preschool....however it is ONLY for social benefit.  The child is already doing all the work Baker is doing....and probably doing it better.  He has been blessed with great teachers and some of his old classmates from last year.

It's Elise's World

11 months old!!!

Months. It has been months since I've updated anything. And I constantly hear about it grandmother! Lol! Think I need to get her a Facebook account since that's where I quickly share our busy lives! I will try to do better here though! So to start us sweet girl is growing like a weed. She is a mess and she reminds me of Baker more and more every day. My sweet, happy, smiling baby has now turned into a sassy, fussy, wants-to-be-independent little girl. We are all pretty crazy about her!!!

So here are a few things she's been up to lately!

Bath Time

Elise ~ 7 months old
 First big girl bath with her brothers.  They all loved it!!!!


Baker took a class field trip to the zoo.
We were so blessed to have our "Dee" come with us!!!!

It's TBALL time in Tennessee!!!

Caleb is struggling a little with tball.  If he doesn't get the ball EVERY time, he has a small breakdown.  Learning to share and work together is so hard!

Batter Up!!! Baker is lightening fast, but he has more fun playing in the dirt than he does going for the ball.  We will see if this changes.....for Daddy's heart's sake, I hope so =)!
