33 words...

...for the birthday boy!

You captured my heart some 13 years ago. You've held it in a special place since then! You are an amazing husband, dad, son, brother, boss and friend! I love you today and forever!

Happy 33rd birthday, Matty!

Happy Easter! Here are some shots of our after church "photo session" in the back yard, sadly did not get a picture of the 4 of us! The kids had a picnic and then had a little water almost daily occurrence in the "boat/pool."

Favorite shot of my girl, in daddy's arms! What a sweetie, she took a few un-assisted steps last night! So fun!

We had our small group and all their kids over for a big Easter dinner last night, of course we had an egg hunt... and more water play...Ollie stayed in that outfit all day long!

Love these girls...all three!

Little sister...

She is my mom's little sister...she's was born 11 years later. She is one of the kindest people I know! She loves my kids in an amazing way! Because she's much younger than my mom, I sort of like to think of her as my older know fun to pretend! Hopefully she can teach this little girl the ropes about being a little sister!

Today is her birthday...Happy Birthday, Aunt Mary...we love you and send you birthday greetings from NC!

My kiddos...

Ollie 13 months and Sarah Claire 13 months!

I was looking back today at some old pics and found this one of Olls. There are a few things mainly hair color that set these two apart, but wow don't they look similar?! So cute the cheeks, the space between their front teeth. The flip out in the back hair do! Precious!

Sweet SC did great with her tubes today. She actually had another double infection, which sadly we didn't know about. So we're super thankful that we the tubes will help clear all this up! Thanks for praying!

Baby Shower...

My neighbor and friend, Steffany is having twin boys in a few months. This past weekend I had the honor of helping to throw a shower for her. Twins...whoa!

My first attempt at making a diaper cake!

The theme blue, yellow, green and ducks!

We LOVE our neighborhood and our neighbors! 7 of these lovely ladies live in my hood! It has been so incredible to get to know them (and their kids) this past year...looking forward to the babies being born and the memories that will continue to come!

Sarah Claire's Dedication...

Our blue eyed girl (please note the matching blue eyes of her grandaddy) got dedicated at church two weekends ago.

Here she is "all smocked" up!

Silly banana brother!

Sweet one resting on Grandpa Hank's shoulder.

Our family up on the stage with all the other dedicating families. My parents and Matt's parents were able to come which made it a special time!

spring break...

All together now, deep that feels better! Spring Break is finally here! Looking forward to spending in the back yard with these guys!

We actually filled these boxes with horse manure courtesy of Grandma and Grandma H this past weekend and planted tons of veggies. We get about 10 hours of sunlight back there so we thinking we might have a road side stand by mid summer!

Yes that is a chicken wing! This girl continues to eat most of anything you put in front of her and will quickly push it out of the way if she doesn't want it. Thursday morning Sarah Claire will be getting tubes in her ears. We'd love prayers for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

Sorry for the lack of blogging the love/ hate (mainly hate) relationship between Picasa and Blogger continues as of late. I've tried to blog several times but got frustrated and stopped. I have to lots to post about so hopefully I'll get all caught up these next few days.
