Labor Day Weekend...

For anyone who grew up near West Point, they know that Labor Day weekend means one thing... Prairie Arts Festival!It is so much fun to go to. You get to see tons of people that you have not seen in forever and who doesn't like to see old friends? This year will be even more special, Drew gets to go for the first time. It is probably going to be so hot that we won't stay long, but one thing is for sure - we have to get a Funnel Cake! So, if anyone reading this wants to see fine arts and crafts and eat some good food, West Point, MS is the place to be. Hope everyone has a great weekend and maybe we will see you there.

8 months...

Has it really been 8 months? A few friends, Mandy and Audra and Samantha, have recently given birth and reading their blogs and seeing all the pictures of a tiny baby makes me wonder - "where has the time gone"? My baby Drew is no longer a little baby. Don't get me wrong I am glad he is growing like he is supposed to, but it has gone so much faster than I ever thought it would. When we rock at night I think about how small he was when we first got home (7 lbs.). Now he is really close to 20 lbs. and he takes up my whole lap. I remember how we were so careful when we picked him up and changed his clothes and diapers. Now we throw him around like a little rag doll! (not really) While I am talking about growing up, he now has 5 teeth and another looks like it is going to pop thru any day now. He is trying to crawl and is making a little progress. It is so cute, he will get up on his hands and knees and just rock back and forth and lunge at whatever we are trying to get him to crawl to. Well, here are a few pictures of the little guy.
*Mandy and Audra enjoy every minute. Next thing you know, you will be recalling all of these memories!*

playing in the water with daddy!

in the "cage"
he doesn't like it to much!

He scoots backwards right now

We're back...

Well, we are back from the beach and we had a fantastic time! We were lazy the whole time we were there, slept late and ate until we almost popped! The kids had such a good time and by kids I mean Kevin, his dad and brother. You would have thought they were 15 again playing in the ocean! And yes the little kids had a good time also, they played in the pool most of the time. While we were there we had some "semi" professional pictures made by Utah Photography! They turned out so good and as soon as we get them I will post a few. It was the classic beach setting... khakis and white shirts.

Also, I thought it was time to change the background on the blog. What do you think? It is hard to pick which one you like - b/c I liked a lot of them! Well, I have more clothes to wash and Drew is starting to wake up. I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures of my "men"! This is sort of old but I love it!
