Just Because (I actually wanted this to be titled Just Cause but that looks like Just Cause and not cuz- anywho, it's now Just Because)

The point is- I posted these pitures because I love my daddy and my sis and I love how amazing they always are to my kiddles. I wish I had a pic with my mom and the hoodlums but that will have to come at a later date. Love you Dad and Loo.

Is There Any Way This Can End Well?

I must say, it was quite a tricky trip to target. I bought the kids some popcorn as a distraction. The good news is, we left a trail for anyone looking for us. The bad news is, the person that has to clean Target hates us about now. The other good news is we found the headband we were looking for for my Young Women Activity. The other bad news is the dress I was sure would be the cutest thing ever just wasn't. Oh well, I still love Target.


Our baby girl is two and a half months now. She is such a sweet little baby. The first couple months were a little rough but she seems to be mellowing out some (not crying all the time anymore!) and she sleeps for 6 hours at a time (yay!!!!). We are so blessed to have her. Boston especially loves taking care of his sister. He holds her and helps here when she's sad (binkie, blankie, etc). It's really fun to have her in our family. Here are a few pictures of our little princess.

Tyler is 6!!!

Our princess Tyler turned 6 on January 13th. We love Tyler so much. She is such a sweet little girl. For her birthday dinner, she picked a shrimp boil. For her cake, she picked Red Velvet (going strong for a third generation- I love it!). For her birthday "party", she took two friends from school, one from church, two cousins, and Boston to go see The Frog Princess. It was a really fun outing. Then we followed up with ice cream. We are so happy that we get Tyler! She is the best sister and daughter. Happy Birthday baby girl.

The Snow

Last weekend, we went to the snow. It's amazing to me that we can leave 65 degree weather, drive an hour and fifteen minutes and be in knee deep snow. The kids had a really fun time. They made snowmen, snow angels, snow balls, etc. When we finished up and loaded everyone into the car, Tyler cried hysterically for 30 minutes because her feet were "just so cold." Isn't it amazing how kids are oblivious to cold until the fun ends? Anywho, here are some pics.
