A day spent with Gigi

Last Thursday was the "last" day Gigi had Addison while I worked.
They decided they needed to do something extra fun!

So, Mrs. Anne and my mom took her to the...
And she LOVED every minute of it!

Last day of KDO

Yesterday was Addison's last day of KDO. 

I snapped a few pictures before we headed out the door for a fun day.

First and last day... Look how much A has changed! 
Her face has matured so much and her hair has grown a ton but she still has that sweet smile! :)
 Addison had a fabulous year. Her teachers were beyond wonderful and made it so easy to leave her every Monday in their care. 
She absolutely loved them and all her sweet friends in class!

After school we met Gigi for a special treat and to celebrate the beginning of summer!
Thursday is my last day of teaching. 
I had a fun year wish my sweet kids but ready to stay home this summer with Addi and with Saylor next year. Addison is still going to go to school one day next year and one day with Gigi or Gigi keep Saylor so we can have a mommy daughter date day!

We are excited for our last summer as a family of 3! 

A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone when he is fully trained will be like his teacher.

Birthday Expo!

Saturday, Our town had a fun and free event called the Birthday party expo. 
They had a bunch of different local venders that had great ideas for future birthday parties!

It was a little warm but Addison had a great time!
 Addison did a little gymnastics..
 Then went to the petting zoo. 
A loved the baby goat.. it was only one day old. She would have stayed there the entire time if we would have let her. 
 Then she rode her 1st pony...
 and LOVED every minute of it! 
She boohooed when she had to get off. 
 We had a great time! 
I am so thankful our town does so many fun little events! 


I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance. 
Philippians 1:19

Mothers Day Weekend!

Its almost a week past Mother's day weekend and I am just now getting the chance to blog about it! :)

We had such a fun weekend and I hope you did as well!

Friday night we started out celebrating my moms birthday.
 We all went over to my parents house and enjoyed some outside time and spending time with our Gigi.
Addison LOVED the ice cream cake! 
I am so thankful my parents live so close. We LOVE our Gigi and want to wish her a very happy happy birthday!

Saturday, I had a little mommy time to myself and went to a baby shower. When I came home I was surprised by this...
 A freshly mulched flower bed, gifts, a new charm- S for Saylor for my bracelet and this sweet girls snuggles. My sweet husband did good :)
That night we enjoyed a dinner out, which is a great gift in its self... I didn't have to cook or clean up!

Sunday, we went to church and watched 31 babies be dedicated, with about 5 of them being our sweet friends. This time next year we will be doing the same with Saylor!
We then went and picked out flowers and some veggies to plant for our little garden.
It was a beautiful day to spend outside!
I had the best day with my sweet family. 

I am so blessed with the best mom and example I could ever ask for...
 And to be the mom to this sweet girl! 
I can not believe next year I will have 2 sweet girls to celebrate with! :)
God is good. 

Happy ( late) Mothers day!

which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—

Gender Reveal Party!

We were beyond excited to find out what Baby P was.
Boy or girl did not matter, we were just praying for a healthy baby.

Tuesday morning, we headed to our appointment with Addison.
We walked into a dark room with so much excitement!
After trying to get the baby to uncross his/her legs and me rolling side to side on the table to wake Baby P up, we were finally able to see.
We had our doctor write it on the screen so Addison would not know quite yet.
She loved getting to see "Butterscotch" in my tummy!

That night we had our families over for a small little gender reveal party.
We painted a box and stuffed balloons inside...
 Addi was so excited!
Boy or girl??? 
My bothers and both our moms guessed BOY..
Our dads were the only ones that said GIRL...
 This is by far my favorite picture of Addison... so sweet covering her eyes!
Its a GIRL!!
 We are beyond excited to meet our sweet little girl and Addison is so excited for a SISTER!
I am so looking forward to having two sweet girls to dress up and for Addison to have a best friend. With all brothers, I never got to experience a sister friendship and I am so excited she gets too. 
Brent is in trouble with a house full of girls! ;) 
They will both be wrapped around his finger.
With the grandparents!

We choose the name Saylor Brooke for baby #2.
We have loved that name since day one of finding out I was pregnant.
I love our two little southern girls... Addi Kaye and Saylor Brooke!

We are so blessed and grateful for a good doctors report. Saylor looked healthy and right on track.
Praise the Lord!
We can not wait to meet her!
