Busy Bees

We have been beyond busy the past two weeks. 

Addison had swimming lessons everyday in the morning.
 She was not a big fan of it this year. 
We are going through a stage where we don't want to get our face/ hair wet or be splashed.... Please Tell me how that works in a pool with a bunch of other 4 year olds! Ha 
I was so thankful for her teachers this year. They were very patient and great with all the kids! 
But I am glad that it is over and hoping next year goes a little better or we are going to be in level one until she is 10! 

We also had vacation bible school every night. Brent stayed home with Saylor while Addi and I went. It was fun to spend time with just her! 
And she loved seeing her friends every night. 

Friday, we had a bridal luncheon for our good friend Rachel's wedding. She asked Addison to be the flower girl and she was beyond excited. Rachel's brother was the ring bear in my wedding so it was neat to see Addison doing something special for her day! 
Her gift for being in the wedding was so special... Mrs. Esther's sister made her a "Elsa" dress! She absulotly LOVED it! 
Something we will cherish and play in everyday! :) 

After, she went with all the big girls to have her nails done (ofcourse in her Elsa dress) and then to the rehearsal dinner that  night. 
Saturday she did great!! She has officially mastered the flower girl job! 
It was such a fun wedding with a beautiful bride! 
Sunday the girls slept until 9..We wore them out!! That afternoon we celebrated uncle Kyle's birthday at my parents house. We sure do love him. 

Monday.... we did absolutely nothing. 
And i am so thankful for that.

We had a fun busy 2 weeks but I am glad to slow down and have a little down time before Addison's birthday and vacation!

Family, Fireworks, and the 4th!

The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. Who doesn't like cookouts, hanging out with the ones you love and of course Fireworks??
This year we started our holiday off at our church firework show. Fireworks at the crosses is one of my favorite activities our church does. It reaches so many in the community and is so neat to watch them baptize 100+ people under the crosses. 
Addison is at a fun (hard) age and LOVED the fireworks this year.. Saylor did great as well!

The weather was beautiful the entire week..
So we enjoyed the Rodeo of the Ozark parade Wednesday.
 Then we headed to the mall fireworks Thursday night.
They were LOUD!
 The 4th we had breakfast out, did a little grocery shopping, came home and rested and spent that afternoon at Brents Grandparents.
The girls had a great time! 
 Saturday night we ended our fun weekend with the fireworks at the rodeo. 
( I think both girls were done watching fireworks by this time haha)
We had such a fun week and weekend!

While we were all celebrating at home, my parents went to go watch my brother, Caleb, graduate from LDAC. 
He is one step closer to becoming a US Army Solider
and we are so proud of him!
 We are so Thankful for all the men and women who have fought and are still fighting for our country so that our family could have a fun week celebrating the 4th!!

Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did!

While Daddy was Gone

Brent has been traveling a lot lately.. 3 weeks out of the last month to be exact!
While daddy's gone I try to stay busy and enjoy my time with just the girls and I. 

It's hard, tiring, lonely and did I mention tiring, but I know I will look back on these days and cherish them. I won't ever get this time back... So I am enjoying this sweet season of life and choosing joy. 
( Let me remind you it is 11:00 pm and I am laying on the floor in the girls room trying to get both of them to sleep as I type this.. But I am choosing JOY! Lol ) 

We have stayed busy this week with....
Summer bible study. It started back up and Can you tell the girls were excited to see friends and learn about Jesus! 

Enjoying a few days spent at the pool! 
Uncle Kyle has been in town this week so we have enjoyed him hanging around us! 

Pretending to be robots at library storytime!

Late night ice cream dates to this little ones favorite... TCBY! 

Trying to do my best multi tasking with bathtime.. ( I sent this to Brent and his response was.. " must be a Mom thing!" Hahaha) 

And spending some sweet moments at Gigi and Pops house. 

Tomorrow... TOMORROW daddy comes home! Yay! 
I know my girls are beyond ready to squeeze his neck!

Addison 1st dance recital

If you follow me on Instagram, you know we had a big milestone in our family a few weekends ago! 
Addison had her very 1st dance recital.

I have been waiting for this day since she was born. I took dance for 17 years and I taught through college. So when I found out I would be having a little girl, I started dreaming of the day I got to be a dance mom! :)  Get ready for picture overload.. 

My sweet girl and I heading to get ready for the show! 
When we arrived she was eager to get her costume on and get out on stage! 
Thank goodness they were the 2nd dance so we didn't have to wait long but in the meantime we took some pretty cute pictures of all the girls! 
 Addison had so much fun with her sweet friends this year!
 Gigi snuck back before the show to see Addi all dressed up in her costume and makeup!
 Miss A's class minus a few
 After she rocked it on stage, Daddy came to meet us for a few pictures and to give Addison a special treat!
 Addison loved her flowers and puppy from daddy!
 After the show we met up with family..
 Addison got quite the arrangements of flowers!

It was so fun watching this sweet sassy girl dance at the same dance studio I did! I have so many fun memories and can't wait for Addison to have the same! 
I have loved watching her blossom into the sweetest little dancer since September. It has become Addison's favorite activity and something she wants to do everyday. She had great teachers and loved all her little friends she has made. We are so proud of Miss A and can't wait to watch many more recitals to come!! 

I pray Addison dances with Psalms 149:3 in mind! 

Let them Praise his name with dancing... 
Psalms 149:3
