Happy Birthday Braden!

Braden turned 13 today!!!  I now have 2 teenagers, 2 preschoolers and one in the middle :)  Braden had a quiet birthday this year.  Things have been so crazy that we have had a very low-key weekend.  We've had tons of rain and the whole golf course is pretty much flooded so Richard, Braden and Cade spent the afternoon with bb guns...hunting for snakes.  That would pretty much sum up a great day where Braden's concerned!  He's a true "country boy".  Braden is the strong, silent type.  We are keeping a close eye on that one!!  :)  He is so sweet and has a great heart for the Lord.  We are so proud of him!  ('s a pan of brownies.  He doesn't really like cake :)

DSC_7029 DSC_7034 DSC_7037 DSC_7039 picture of all the kiddos, but at least 2 of the boys made it into pics :) Truly, you want to see these girls go at it...put a brother in between them. They love those boys!! (and those boys love them!!)  I think the weather is supposed to get better tomorrow and we will all be home.  I'll try to get them together for a shot :)DSC_7027

The most exciting news of the day (sorry Braden) is that the girls were asleep in bed by 8:25 tonight!!!  Richard is upstairs watching a movie with the boys and I'm laying in my bed...AWAKE...with the tv on something other than Dora, and the computer on my lap.  I am happy!!  I had to share these pj's with you!  I got them right before China but just pulled them out.  They are Carter's brand and the girls were so excited!  They definitely both like to spin like ballerinas.  Good thing they start dance this month!!  I can't wait!!

Enjoy the holiday tomorrow!!  I know I plan to!

Happy belated Birthday Braden! Your sisters are so lucky to have a big brother like you.

Jen, LOVE the pics of the girls in their pjs. Tutu cute! :)

Hope the weather cooperates so you can get some more pics with all the kids. Our weather here in Dallas is awesome this morning. 69 degrees and breezy! A wonderful break after 60+ days of triple digits. So ready for Fall!

Happy Labor Day!

Cute, again! I bought those same PJ's for Emy at Kohl's at a deal! (They are a 2T--so she may have to wait just a little bit!). Whew, I can't imagine buying two of everything!!!
