Lawson’s First Crush

It is official Lawson has her first crush.  How do I know?…I just read the writing on the wall (literally)

I love jack

When I saw this I asked Lawson “What is this?” She said “What? you said we can love our friends!” Heavy sigh from mommy after this comment…what do you say??

Then Lawson and I had the best conversation at dinner one night about her boy friend, Jack.  It was one of those conversations that I just wanted to laugh but I did not want to deter her from talking to me.  Our conversation started like this…

L: Mom, Jack said a whole entire sentence to me. (As she floated back into her chair and her eyes staring into space looking all dreamy)

M: Really, a whole sentence? What does he normally say to you?


M: Why does he say stop?

L: Because we are chasing him and he wants us to stop!

M: Why are you chasing him?

L: Because if you like someone, you chase them!


No, idea what Jack looks like but I know for sure he is my daughter’s first crush!

Sigh, my little girl is growing up!

We have a soccer player!

April 14 was Wesley’s first official soccer game.  We woke up early had a power breakfast and were in the car by 8AM.  8:20AM he had soccer pictures (it was kind a comical to me because he had never actually played a game yet we were having soccer pictures made) and then it was time to play.

While they waited for the other team to take their pictures the kids warmed up. Here Wesley is warming up with one of his buddies, Holden.DSC_4775

Now we know Wesley does not stop running or moving at home, we had some expectation that he would keep up with the herd of kids running around the field.  What we didn’t expect is for when the game started for Wesley to march down the field and attempt a goal. His first attempt he missed.  We were proud of his efforts and cheered for the team.


The very next time the blue team (his team) got possession he kicked the ball down the field and scored!  Go Wesley, go Wesley!  Collins and I just turned to each other in surprise! This is Wesley scoring although you can not see more then his foot behind the coach.DSC_4784

Then…the next time down the field what does Wesley do…he scores again!!   WOW!! That was my only thought.  The boy had no game time experience and there he goes like he is an old pro!


We were brought back down to earth when Wesley did score for the other team. So he didn’t quite have a perfect game but I honestly  couldn’t describe how proud I was of his efforts.


The thing I love most about Upward soccer is it really isn’t about who wins or loses and who does well and who needs their mom to hold their hand out on the field so they will play.  It is about having fun! Let’s keep it real…they are only 4!


This is a Christian league and the kids had a blast!  I was super proud of everyone! 


What was Wesley most thrilled about?…getting another sticker from the coach.  He has really no clue that the grey sticker means he scored in a game, not sure what the gold sticker means, but the green is for showing up for soccer practices.

Great job, Wesley.  We have another soccer game this weekend.  We really have no expectations of what he will do.  As long as he has fun that is all that matters!!

Easter 2012

Let’s see do we believe in the Easter bunny?…hmmm…not sure. We never really talked about it but let it be known he did come to our home and the kids were thrilled!


Although, the idea of the Easter bunny is a little hazy.  I was proud to hear that both Lawson and Wesley were telling me stories of how Jesus died on the cross and Wesley asking me “Mommy, is it okay that I love God more then you?”

After the Easter bunny and getting a sugar high.  It was time to get ready for church.  The REAL reason we celebrate Easter.

We tried to get pictures before church…ummmm…not working.


Cailyn to distracted by the fact she is wearing shoes to look at the camera…


We waited until afterwards!  The lighting was perfect to highlight my beautiful kiddos!


Cailyn loves being thrown in the air! I really like this picture so I played around with the effects…

One with the kiddos…yep, a picture with these three is not going to happen!


Then it was Easter egg hunt….sponsored by Grammy and Pops (literally). Cailyn was napping (& does she walk) so she did not participate this year- next year!


The kids found a treasure better then candy in their eggs - money!When Lawson found out what was in her eggs she said “That is what I am talking about!” Haha!DSC_4726

Then after the kids had a hunt for eggs, the adults got a chance! I am happy to say, I was the golden egg winner!! Woot, woot!

It was a great Easter filled with lots of fun memories (especially me winning) but above that we celebrated resurrection of our Lord and Savior!

Uncle Taylor was here!! We love our Tay-tay!

Meeting Haywood “Wood”

Our first weekend of Spring break we went to VA to see my parents, brother and my sister and her new baby, Wood. He is a perfect little boy!! It is amazing how I can love this little boy so much and I did not even birth him.  It is the same way I feel about McKenna, my sister’s kids are truly just an extension of my family!

Here is the little angel at 2 weeks old! Isn’t he handsome?? DSC_4651

Cailyn came over to check him out.  It was hilarious to see her reaction to this new baby.  She is no longer the baby of the family.  She checked him out and then really had nothing else to do with him.

Cailyn and Wood

We did find her playing dolls with his bouncy seat once he was out.  They learn so fast!!

Of course, we can not forget out McKenna!  Lawson and McKenna were the BEST playmates. Wow! They just went off in the house and played beautifully together.

The Kenna Grand Girls!!

Wesley did come over and check out Wood for minute and then he was off playing with McKenna’s toys.  He was too busy to even notice there was a new baby!  Ha! Here are the Kenna Grand Boys…

Wood and Wesley

I love these guys so much!! They are having so much fun and I couldn’t be prouder of Will and Lauren!!


I don’t want to steal Lauren’s thunder but here is another picture of Wood because I feel she isn’t posting enough of him these days.  I mean, it is like she is too busy to post or something. I don’t understand.  (kidding)
