Love this sweet girl!  She definitely has her moments of being the baby and can be difficult and fussy at times, but she loves fiercely and gives the best hugs!  She is always sad if she thinks your mad at her and cries and says I don't want you to be mad at me.  It's my last year with a little girl at home with me and I'm trying to savor the moments we have together. Love watching her play.. she loves Shopkins, barbies, America dolls, and board games!   She is a little doll and gets compliments on her ringlets every where we go!  My little Shirley temple:)

Father Daughter campout

Josh took the little girl to the legacy campout for the second time.  The girls love the pool and the playground and setting up tent.  They didn't get to stay the night because of storms, but went back out the next morning.  They had tons of fun, but came home with several ticks and Josh had chigger bites...  Lots of laundry for mom, but I'm glad they got to make those memories!  Tessa and I stayed back and ate our own pint of ice cream and watched a movie!  Loved our time just her and I!

First day of four year old preschool!

Ready for her third year at fbc Jenks!  She is technically in pre-k, but we plan to hold her back since she has an August birthday.  Violet's teachers are Ms Christy and Ms Whitney.  She has several boys in her class.  Brady, Maddox, Camden, Bennett, and Porter and her best friend Kaylee!  She is a momma's girl and when I asked her what her favorite part of the day was she said, 'home!'  Love her so much!

First soccer game ever!

First soccer game for this sweet nine year old! She had fun and fit right in with the others, but said it was really hard to get the ball!  Love her and so proud of her for trying something new!

Violet turns FOUR!

Not sure how, but Violet turned four!!  The time has gone by so fast!  She still seems like a baby to me and she'll be the first to tell you, she is still my baby:)!  V has always been a little bit of a challenge with her strong will, fits, and being hard to please At times, but she is so very cuddly and sweet!  So thankful God knew we needed one more little girl:)  She wanted all things baby this year!  We went to AG store to pick a doll and she only wanted bitty baby gear:)   I have her home with me this year for preschool and I look forward to all the one on one time we will get to have together:)!

Summer end!

Fun end to summer!  Park time, cookies, sleepover, pool and splash pad!  We had such a fun summer of vacations and play time!  The girls got along really well for the most part and I loved my time with them!!  Love these girls so much and I will miss them while they're back at school!

First day of school 2016

First day of fourth grade and first grade for these two!  Not sure where the time has gone:(  Tessa has Ms Bauer and Lyla has Ms Farver!  Two sweet teachers and they have several friends in their class!  Lyla is excited to be with Audrey and Anni and Tessa is excited to be in class with Maddy!


Violet and I had a fun first week back to school for the big girls!  She doesn't head back for 2 more weeks and so we enjoyed our time just her and I!  Lots of playing shopkins and ponies, reading books, walks to the park, bike rides, splash pad and the pool with friends, shopping and lunch with friends!  I had such a fun time this week and V loved the one on one time!  She hasn't always been the easiest child, but She is such a sweet heart!  Love when she looks at me and says 'mommy, I love you!'
