So Sweet

Our sweet Reese is getting so big. She has changed so much in the last couple of weeks. Here is a couple pictures from this week.

p.s. I'll have some pictures of big brother soon! He has a soccer game Saturday so I'll be taking some then. Getting a 6 year old to let you take his picture=IMPOSSIBLE!

"I Feel A Hissy Coming On" My mom bought this for Reese. Apparently Gigi thinks that Reese is going to act like her Momma-ha!

I had to take a couple of pictures of Reese sleeping. Look at her little feet! Sweetest thing ever!!!

We are going to have to hide those cheekies from Aunt Christy-heehee!

LOVE this sweet little face! Reese is starting to look more like me. I have a picture of me and it looks just like this one.

It's Sunday, Right?

We have been so busy!!! I didn't even realize that today was already September 25th!!!
Friday (Sept. 16th) we closed on our new house! So we have been moving things, unpacking things, and cleaning things... ALL WEEK!
The new house is A-MAZING!!! I love, love, love it! (I'll post pictures soon.)
Because of all the craziness that has been going on I haven't blogged in forever! So here is a couple of pictures from this weekend.

Friday night Reese & I had Bunco! It was a College Football themed night.

Saturday my brother in law, Luke sent us 3 girls for massages to celebrate Laura's (his fiance) birthday! We had so much fun! Love these ladies!!!

Sunday Matt bought a fire table for the back patio so we had to do SMORES!!!

I just want to brag a little about my husband :) He works so hard for our little family! Matt is a wonderful father and husband! He bought us this beautiful home where we can raise our babies! I am so blessed to have him as my husband and to have 2 beautiful kids with him! LOVE YOU BABE!!!

My first baby is **6**!!! I can't believe how fast our sweet boy is growing up! We are so blessed to be his parents!

Ben, Mommy and Daddy LOVE you so much! Oh and Reese loves her big brother too!!!

Wednesday I took him to visit his Gigi & Pops. (My Mom had back surgery so she couldn't come to his Birthday dinner.) Gigi & Pops gave him $40 (it's supposed to be to buy some clothes but I'm not getting that boy to buy clothes with it-ha!) and he also got a HUGE Pirates of the Caribbean Pirate Ship Lego set! He was so excited!

$$$ The boy loves money! $$$
Pops & his boy!

Thursday was his actual Birthday so I brought him a special snack to share with his class.

The class singing to him :)

Ben also opened his present from us. We got him the Millennium Falcon StarWars Lego set!

Thursday night we took Ben to celebrate at Dave & Busters. Papa John, Grandma Beth, and Luke meet us there too.

My sweet little family! (heehee we didn't wanna wake the baby so we left her in the carrier for the picture.)

Uncle Luke & Laura got Ben a star projector for his room!

Papa John & Beth got him a big talking Yoda for his room and an electronics kit!

Student Of The Month!

Ben got Student of The Month for August at school. Every month there is a different "character trait" that they learn and then the students are recognized for using the character trait. Ben was recognized for the character trait SELF CONTROL.
Matt and I are very proud of Ben! He is such an awesome kid!!!

Up on stage at Chapel. (sorry for the blurry-it was dark in there)

I Miss QuikTrip

Almost everyday after school last year I would take Ben to Quik Trip for a snack and drink.
Well this year we have a little extra somethin' to carry around with us. I don't want to get baby girl out of the car and lug her into QT everyday... So we have been hitting Sonic for after school drinks.
Friday after school this was Ben and I's conversation regarding his little sister.
Ben: "Why do you always have to bring her."
Me: "Who your sister?"
Ben: "Yes!"
Me: "Are you serious? I have to bring her!"
Ben: "Can't you just leave her in her swing?"
Me" "Uh no! I can't leave her at home in her swing! Would you want me to leave you at home by yourself?"
Ben: "But I miss going to Quik Trip!"

My boy loves Quik Trip!!!
