A Beautiful Childhood~

Things I want to remember from the littles' childhood...
 Discovering the sweetness of honey suckles growing by the pool~
 Evie helping Holly be brave riding her bike~
 Getting their wheels cleaned up for a spin~
Swimming during the day is okay but night swimming is the best~

Happy Birthday Payne~

Today was Payne's birthday and we celebrated low key at home~
He opened a big lego kit. 
We grilled for dinner and had cookies to celebrate.
We went for a boat ride and he saw an 11 in the sky.
May 11! Just for his birthday!!!
Happy birthday Payne... we love you!

Sweet Ben Curtis~

Thursday was Savannah and Josh's 4th anniversary and we were SO happy
that BC came to spend the weekend with us!!!
Rosie drove him here Friday morning and we were all over him~
He found his friends, his toys, and wanted his Papa's hat!
Papa coming home was the BEST~
He loved eating, riding in the pink car, and playing basketball~
 He loved being in my arms, hanging with Evie, splashing in the pool,
and going for a walk~
 He took great naps, hung out with EK, was perfect @ church, and in the car~
Sweet Ben Curtis, it was THE best weekend loving on you!!!
Can't wait for next time!

The Best Husband~

Standing next to me is one of the best husbands in the world~
He knows what a Mom needs more than anything for Mother's Day
 is an evening away with just him...
so he planned for the bigs to keep the littles
and whisked me off to Greenville for dinner and a little shopping.
His undivided attention and a whole evening of just us was perfect.
Thank you for loving me so sweetly.
I am one blessed mom AND wife!!!

A Happy BD Party for Holly and Payne~

Our children look SO forward to their big family BD party.
Holly and Payne surely were!
 Especially Holly since she had witnessed them but never had her own at home.
This was her first and we were all so excited for her!
I ordered a plain white cake from Publix, added their favorite toys, sprinkles, and candles~
Everyone enjoyed cake and our first homemade ice cream!
 The kids had hula hoops, jump ropes, chalk, and bikes to play with~
 Opening presents was a highlight for sure... Payne loved all his legos and Holly her Sophia toys~
 We had them close their eyes so we could give them both new bikes.
Payne LOVED his and I'm sure Holly will too in time~
A big huge thank you to all our family for being here to celebrate
7 years for Payne and 5 for Holly!!!
A super Happy Birthday for our two kiddos!

A Graduation Girl~ {Amelia}

Today we drove to Amelia's little mountain college town for graduation.
Scott and I along with Savannah, Rosemary, and Susan went up leaving the littles home with my mom.
We met up with Amelia and Logan for lunch and enjoyed taking photos~
 How can we be graduating our second child from college?
 Such a fun day hanging out with our beautiful big girls, Logan, and Susan~
 Amelia, we are amazed at your giftedness and accomplishments but mostly your character... 
we couldn't love you more~
 Seeing Amelia walk was such a great blessing and BC was absolutely perfect~

Amelia was surrounded by profs and friends that love her~
 And family~
 Phi Mu sisters and roommates~
 North Georgia has been good to two of our girls and we are SO very thankful!!!
Amelia is home until July when she will leave for 6 weeks to study abroad in Italy.
I think I will leave it at that... more than my heart is ready for.
Love you Mill and so very proud of you!!!

HollyMei is FIVE!~

Remember last May 1st when I posted HollyMei's birthday in China~
Wasn't she the sweetest baby ever?

And now a year later, she looks like she aged like 3 years.~
Today she woke up SO happy and excited for her big day. 
We gave her a bible and puzzles. 
I'm pretty sure she looked at every single page. 
We made cinnamon rolls for breakfast and sang happy birthday~
 It was a sweet day of playing, grilling for dinner, and an ice cold swim~
No place this sweet girl would rather be on her FIRST birthday at home than HOME. :)
Happy birthday HollyMei! Can't wait for your party on Sunday!!!
