May

Well, May has just flown by!  I know it's because we have been jam packed with activity.  We have been in the middle of building (and finishing) our house, baseball season, school ending and summer beginning with a bunch of stuff in between!
We hope and pray to be in our new house by July and my in-laws will be singing at the top of their lungs…"Free, free I'm free at last, I thank God Almighty I'm free at last!) Ha!   ;)

Here is what's been happening lately…

On the days it has been warm and sunny (and not raining), we have enjoyed lots of picnics outside!  This girl is a pb&j fan!
We had a curve ball thrown our way when Sydney broke her arm jumping around in a bouncy house.
This was her after two hours of crying and finally getting some pain meds at the dr.
Sweet baby in her temporary cast the next morning.
She was all smiles by Monday at the orthopedic dr.
Even back to acting like a full blown 2 year old! ;)
As you can see, she did a number on her bone!
She was brave while getting her real cast.
The cast hasn't slowed her down a bit.  
She was back to normal and eating a corn dog just a couple of days later.  I think the cast bothers me more than it does her.
Memorial Day was WET but still so fun!
My parents came up from Dallas to join in on the fun and celebrate Parker's birthday a little early.
Water, water everywhere!!


Once the rain stopped it was fun to get out and play in all that water!
By Sunday the sun was back out and things were drying up!
Parker and James got ready for their big camp out that night.
A campout can't be complete without smores of course!
In their pjs and ready to venture out in the dark to their tent!
My two cuties on daddy's four wheeler.
This girl keeps me on my toes and laughing all the time!  Holy cow there is never a dull moment.
First swim of the season!!
Parker and his best buddy Noah at the kindergarten picnic!
He really had a darling little class this year.
(some of these girls aren't in his class but got in the pic, hmmm)
Boys will be boys.
The night before Parker's 6th birthday, the balloon fairy came and decorated his door!!
All smiles on his birthday AND the last day of school!

The first day of kindergarten.


The last day.  I think he grew a foot!
The birthday boy in his class.
Parker and Mrs. Casey on the last day!
  We will miss her next year for sure, what a gifted kindergarten teacher she is.
Celebration lunch at CFA!
He wanted to swim all afternoon on his birthday…I couldn't argue with that! ;)
See that handsome ball player on the left?
That night, on his birthday, he hit his very first grand slam!!
Then it was off to eat pizza with his buddies to celebrate his birthday.
Again…boys will be boys!
Whew, I'm tired!  What a fun May it has been!!

June, here we come!!  After all, it's the most wonderful time of the year! 
HAPPY SUMMER!!!!!!

Sydney turns 2!

It's official!  As of April 18th, we have a two year old in our house! (yes, I am this behind on posting). It's hard for me to believe it's already been two years, time just flies!!
We had a fun weekend celebrating little Miss.  My parents came up from Dallas and we just enjoyed our time together.  Sydney soaked up all the attention and of course, enjoyed all things pink!!

We started the weekend with a small little Minnie Mouse party with a couple of sweet friends!
Here is handsome little Sloan
Emma and her pink cupcake!
She was so unsure about being the center of attention.
The next day was Saturday, her real birthday, and we had donuts for breakfast!
Then after a "selfie" with her new Minnie Mouse camera, it was off to watch brother play baseball!
That afternoon, Miss Priss got to open all of her presents from family.

She didn't mind this one bit! ;)

Her new wheels!
More birthday cake before bed...
It was a fun day!!
Happy birthday sweet Sydney!  We love you so much!

She's married!!

Last Friday, my beautiful little sister, Lindsey, married Braz Williams!  It was the most fun and special weekend!  I was so honored to be her matron of honor and get to stand by her side on the big day.  I love getting to see so many family and friends at the wedding and of course...dance the night away!  Congrats Lindsey and Braz, we are so happy for you!!
I wish I had taken more pictures, but boy, we were busy having fun!  Good thing there was a professional photographer there. ;)

Thursday morning some of the bridesmaids met up to get pedicures and manicures!
Mimosas for the win!!


Then we met at Celebrity Bakery for lunch.
The smallest flower girl got to come too!

After the rehearsal, the dinner was at this amazing steakhouse called Dakota's in Downtown Dallas.
The atmosphere was awesome...outdoor patio open to downtown.
Me and my sista!

Great center pieces!

Friday morning it was time to get all dolled up for the big ceremony that night!
We had two hotel rooms that connected...hair in one and make-up in the other!
We had our make-up air brushed and fake eye lashes put on.  We were magazine ready! ;)

Me with the beautiful bride before she put her dress on.
Sweet moment as mom buttons up her dress.
Ta da!!
I literally melted into one sappy pile when this little stud came out of the bathroom.
I want to freeze him this way.
His eyes are swollen (virus) and his face has road rash (scooter accident).
I mean can you time these things any better??
Our little family ready to walk down the aisle!
My favorite pic of the entire day!
Sydney crashed the father/daughter dance!  It was adorable!
I'm framing this and keeping it for forever.
Mom and dad pulled off an absolutely perfect wedding, it was just fabulous!!
The venue was Ashton Gardens in Corinth, so, so pretty!

The next day we were all tired, right?  Yes, but don't worry...we drove down to Waco and visited Baylor!!  How could we not?  We were so close!
All of you BU people out there...this is Viteks, can I get an Amen??
McLane Stadium!
Look who we found at the baseball game!!
Bless her, she was exhausted and napped in daddy's arms!

Neesie and Grandad on Easter Sunday!
I can't think of a better way to end this special weekend but to celebrate our risen Savior!
Happy Easter!
