7 Years! Happy Anniversary!

James and I had the wonderful opportunity of going on a little anniversary get away this weekend. Sonya came up to watch the kids (Thanks you Sonya!) and we took off. It has been a couple year since we got away like this so it was a lot of fun. We went to dinner, watched a movie, got some dessert at the Cheese Cake Factory, spent the night in a hotel, exercised, went shopping and just enjoyed each others company. I can hardly believe we have been married 7 years. It has flown by. I feel incredibly lucky to have James as my husband, he is a uniquely wonderful man perfectly designed for me. These have been the best years of my life and they just keep getting better. Thank you James for picking me! I look forward to eternity. I Love you!

Week of Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day! We are so grateful for all the people who serve and have served  in our country.

 We took a trip to the mall the kids of course had fun.
Here is my baby bump at 26 weeks

On Tuesday night we went down to Houston with James on a work trip. It was a lot of fun to to just relax at a hotel and swim in the pool.

Mother's Day weekend

We had a great Mother's Day weekend! Aunt Sonya (James sister) came down and we just had some good family fun!
 The kids and I got James this shirt it Says Who's your Daddy.
We went down to Going Bonkers with the kids and they went Bonkers. It was a lot of fun but man Royce was all over the place.

 Afterwards we went to lunch at Chick-fil-A and Bella was being a silly pants
Jasper is snoozing on the plant pots. It was funny.

James did a good job making it a special day for me he made me breakfast and got me a nice present and of course it was just wonderful to have Sonya there. I just have to say that I really feel like I have the best job in the world. It is a joy to be a mother and a wife.

Luke end of Kindergarten

Luke finished off kindergarten in May. They had lots of fun events for the end of school
Here is Luke on field Day his teacher Mrs. Collum is standing behind him.
He was very good at this game meticulously pouring the water into the bottle. 
They let Bella participate in some of the games to Luke's left is his good buddy Tyson who was in his class.
 They had Splash Day and again Bella got to be involved. Luke was so sweet with her. He always watches out for her and make sure she is taken care of. He is a really good big brother.
Climbing up
 Luke going down
Bella going down the slide. I think because she was so light she just flew down!
Luke loved being in school this year, more than I ever thought he would. He thrives off structure and routine and he is very precise person he likes things to be the way they are suppose to be, so we have set up our own routine during the summer to keep him busy and happy, here they are doing their workbooks one morning.

Royce 15 months!

Roy had his 15 month check up at the beginning of May he is weighing in at 
28lb (off the charts) 34in (off the charts) which just means he is bigger than most kids his age. He is definitely following in big brothers footsteps but they have different builds.

 One of Royce's strongest features our these big brown eyes that I love!
 He is so full of life and personality. He is a very happy, friendly boy.
 He loves, loves, loves fruit and will eat it 3 meals a day. He also has a sweet tooth and we have to hide the treats from him. He is eating a pear very aggresively in this picture
 Roycie's favorite place to be is outside, but he is a very adventurous smart child so he tends to escape the yard or just put himself in bad situations. One of my friends gave us this little play yard so we trap him in it sometimes.

 He loves going to the park and trying to keep up with his big brother and sister. He is really good at climbing and his favorite is going down the slide, over and over again.
 Roy is enjoying a milk shake, poor James was coming down with strep throat in this picture, thats why he is so pale.
Yummy Smore
 This baby loves animals! He is drawn to them and just love to be around them. A few weeks ago we sold our female golden. Roy is snuggling Oscar our male in this picture.
 He is very opinionated and knows what he wants. He was swimming in the pool and when we were done I tried to take off his water wings, he wouldn't have it, he wanted to wear them around. lol.
 After his checkup I realized that he was four inches to tall to be rear facing in his car seat so we finally flipped him around. Here he is pointing at the car movie player. He finally figured out where the sound was coming from.
Roy has learned how to express his opinions but he has seriously cute tantrum I just wanted to kiss his little face.
