Macy Update~

Sweet Macy is doing awesome!!!
She has learned so much and settled right into life on Lakeshore~
When she isn't out for a long walk, playing with all the kids, or eating,
she can be found napping on the coolness of our kitchen tile floor.
I couldn't have imagined how much I would love a puppy
but I can say... she is the sweetest thing and adored by all!!!


My sister has been here for a week helping take care of my mom after surgery~
I'm not the only one that has loved having her here.
PLEASE move home and be with us ALL the time!!!
We love and adore you!

Evie's tooth has been loose for a while and she finally let her daddy pull it this am!

He pulled it right out and she didn't even feel it.
Hermie is on the way and she couldn't be happier!
Already wondering how much money she will get. :)
Happy Tooth Day Evie!!!

She made it safe and sound and so far we have a few photos of her adventures~
We are taking the month of July to learn all about Italy as Amelia is there.
She is taking two classes @ the university there~ water coloring and photography!
These photos were taken with her phone while getting a quick tour.
So excited to see this beautiful place through her photos!

Celebrating Amelia~ {Off to Italy}

While Scott and I were away for our anniversary,
we planned a Send Off Party for Amelia for just us adult people.
We worked all day getting the yard and pool ready as well as a yummy dinner~
{Steaks, Roasted squash and potatoes, corn on the cob, bacon wrapped green beans, rolls, and chocolate trifle}
 We had planned our dinner for 8 so we fed the littles regular time, put them to bed on time, and began our evening with these beautiful people~
 God has done a mighty work in these beautiful girls and the boys with them are pretty awesome too~
 Amelia, to say we will miss you is just crazy to even say...
YES! we will but God is giving you an experience of a lifetime!!!
Go there with His purpose in your heart and chase the destiny He has for you.
You are the most gifted artist we know and your talents are many.
We can't wait to follow your trip and see all the great things you see, learn, and experience.
We love you SO very much~
 Night swimming was so fun after dinner and Macy had her very first swim too~
The perfect evening with our sweet originals!
Thankful for each of you and the love we all share!!

Two New Swimmers~

Amazing that one day the bitties are swimming with puddle jumpers {which we LOVE}
and the next Evie gets up the courage to just try swimming without it~
And she DID it!!!
After that first try, she was all over the pool and even jumping off the diving board.
The next day it was Holly's turn...
only being home One Year means more fear to overcome and super courage
which she mustered up and became a swimmer just like her big sis.
They are both going off the diving board and swimming like little fish!
The pool just got way more fun for them!!!

Big Stuff Going On~

My mom and dad have major garden{S} every year and put up lots of vegs as well.
Little did they know my mom would be having major surgery right in the middle of canning season
SO I did something I said I would NEVER do...
I got a small deep freezer, picked corn, and beans, and froze them both~
 Now just hoping it's fit to eat when I cook it. :)

Having a pup in the house has been A LOT of work but rewarding all the same.
Just look at EK's face and you can tell it is a match made in heaven~
 She's a cutie and learning to be in a family just like everyone else~
Can't imagine life without her now and adore our Macy girl!!!
