Kissing Cousins

Thankful for this sweet lady and the little guy in her tummy!  We are just 8 weeks apart.
How cool is it we get to share another pregnancy together.  I pray that these two cousins share the bond their older brothers do.

Abram turns three

We got to celebrate this little man turning 3 at Jump n Jax.
He loves this crazy new place in town.  
We are so thankful for Abram.

Abram Jeffrey
You are spunky, silly, kind hearted, bashful, and sneaky.
You make my world more colorful every day.  You are definitely mommy's buddy.  You remind me often and call me your best friend.  I hope that never changes.  
You love trucks & tractors.  You love "man stuff"... being outside, dirt, digging, using tools like the hose, blower, etc.  You often like to help with big kid stuff.  
I pray you will always be strong and smart.  I pray the Lord works in your heart to big things!  

I love you Abe :)

Under Construction

You know when they say "nesting" you assuming they mean getting a room ready, buying some pillows, maybe doing some spring cleaning?  Yeah... for me it means setting an obnoxiously high expectations for a deadline.

We have been planning our basement reconstruction for a long time now.  Estimates came in and we decided to tackle a few projects for ourselves to save money.  It always seem to work out this way.  So we are now under construction.  I wish I had some before pictures.  But picture a very large space covered in very old, very plush red velvet colored carpet.  You really couldn't notice many other details with it on the floor.  

We tore out the carpet and removed a partial wall plus hired a friend to come and add a small room for a playroom area and gut the bathroom.  We are well on our way to the more "fun" parts of renovation.  Jeff and Abe are laying the floor.  It is even more beautiful in person.  New paint is on the walls, too.  The problem is my deadline was before sis arrived.  That gives us just a few weeks.  Its not going to happen.  But a girl can dream...

Daddy Daughter Dance 2015

Ayla, 7

Leah, 5

I love this tradition a small group started in our town.  The girls feel pampered and get to go have fun, eat, dance, and see their friends.  Daddy gets to do something fun with them.  So neat!  Its crazy to think that in just a few years he will have another sweet girl to take out to the dance.  I hope that they will all still enjoy doing this with baby sis is their age.

Little brother of course needed to check out their flowers and say goodbye.
