The summer in a nutshell...

The summer has come and gone... quickly!
We didn't take any special trips... but boy oh boy were we busy. 
The boys are growing like weeds, and changing daily. 
It amazes me how much they have changed over a few short months. 
When did my baby turn 9 months old??
Sawyer is crawling and exploring everything.
He has 8 teeth that he chooses to use on a daily basis... ouch!
At 8 1/2 months he decided that he wanted to be a big boy... he quit nursing.  :) :(
He loves to pull himself up on anything he can.
Anything and everything that he isn't allowed into... he gets into.
His curiosity is amazing!!
The personality of this little man never ceases to amaze me...
He is just an all around awesome little guy!
Elliot... my dear sweet Elliot.
He is 2 1/2... need I say more?!
He is talking like crazy.  He actually never stops! 
He loves tractors and trucks.
His blonde curls and blue eyes are adorable and save him on a daily basis (refer to previous statement about him being 2 1/2)  ;)
I know the hair is wild... but I refuse to cut those blonde curls.
Elliot's favorite thing to do is riding 4 wheelers with daddy.
He's such an amazing child!
Carter... is growing and changing... he's not my 'little baby' anymore. *sniffle*
He is 4 1/2 going on 14.
Carter is going to school 3 days a week and loving every minute of it!
He begged us to put him into extended day preschool and is enjoying it. 
He goes for 4 1/2 hours and gets to eat lunch at school with his friends.
We are working ever so slowly on writing his name. He is actually getting pretty good at it!
Carter absolutely LOVES going to work with Aunt Mary. 
He listens well and is her big helper. 
He is such an amazing big brother.  He keeps everyone in line...
My boys are amazing gifts from God...
see for yourself...

This boy is addicted to my phone. 
If I can't find my phone... I look for Carter and 9 times out of 10... he's got it.
Eyes glued... oblivious to the world...

How can you stay mad at this face?!

Jason has started a little tradition with my guys...
Every once in a while, when Jason actually has a Saturday off, they have a campout. 
The boys love it. 
They get to completely rearrange my living room.
Eat s'mores.
We usually order pizza.
They watch several movies with daddy.
Life is good.

Thumbs up!!


A smidge late... but these are some of the monthly pictures of my little angel.



Everything goes in this kids mouth...

This is what happens when that mean old mommy takes it away...
Crisis averted... gave him something less expensive to chew on...

9 month pictures will be coming soon...

If it isn't raining... you can find my guys outside.
My friend Tara has the most awesome dog.
Izzy is an English Mastiff.
She wasn't even a year old when this picture was taken.
She is a horse...
A gentle giant...
and the boys love her!
Carter decided to use her as his work horse.
She did pretty well.
Men working... coming thru!!
Love the blonde halo...
don't be fooled!  ;)


Fixin the broke tractor.

We attempted a picture of the kids with the dogs...
didn't work out so well...

How did I get so lucky?!

Carter's first day of preschool.
Hard to believe he will be starting Kindergarten this time next year!!
