Father's Day 2016

 My kids are so blessed to have such an amazing dad! He works very hard to provide for his family, is always involved, never passive, the most perfect daddy for our three, and most importantly points their hearts to the Lord. We love him so deeply!

Our weekend began by our first hike as a family of five. All the of the kids were such troopers, especially Grace walking the entire 3+ hours! (ice cream at the end is always a big motivator)


The weekend ended with naps, golf watching, mexican food and a lot of snuggles for the dad whose kids truly believe he hung the moon!

Mema

I am so fortunate to know the greatest prayer warrior still on this earth, and that is my grandmother, Mema.

I am so blessed to have been able to introduce all three of my children to her. She has prayed diligently for them and I know will continue to until eternity.

Here is the first time she met Grace- 




Here is the first time she met David Michael-




Here is the first time she met Emma-


Theses are moments I will always treasure because I know I can only experience firsts like this once!


Matching Sisters

From the day I found out that we were having another girl, I could not wait to find matching outfits! I love it when sisters match and thankfully for now so does my big girl! 

However, much to my dismay it is much more difficult to find matching clothes for my girls due to the fact that their sizes are so far apart. Grace wears anywhere from 5-7, where as Emma is currently wearing 3 months or 3-6 months. 

BUT... on Saturday I went out and finally found matching outfits!



My prayer is that these two will always love each other!

Memorial Weekend

Memorial Weekend was a really quick and fun weekend! The weekend began with introducing Emma to her great grandmother, Mema. (you can check out that post  here) 

 
Then we went to go eat lunch with Grandma and Dan. She filled our bellies till they were overflowing! Of course the hit for the kids (aka Michael) was the homemade banana ice cream. 

Then we headed to the lake to spend time with Grandmommy and Papa. While are the lake we enjoyed relaxing, swimming, boating, tubing, catching up with family, and eating. 

Emma slept the weekend away! She had so many people to hold her that she was so content (that is until time to get in the car seat for the drive home). 

The highlight definitely for David Michael was driving Papa's boat. (look how hard he is concentrating!) David Michael did not care for swimming, but boating and vacuuming were definitely top on his list! 


Grace could have stayed in the water the entire time! She thoroughly enjoyed swimming and playing with her Aunts!


We are so excited that summer has arrived!

Grace's First Dance Recital

My little dancer had her very first recital. This momma was so very proud! She has grown so much and looks forward to dance school every week.

Dance was a reward for Grace growing up and wearing big girl panties all the time. As soon as she had the goal of dance, she was successfully potty trained in about a week. 

 Grace loved her teachers and the girls in her class (sometimes a little too much, because she would get in trouble for trying to sit too close to them or kiss them).

For her recital she got a new outfit and was so excited to wear makeup!




We were so grateful that her Grandmommy and Papa were able to come and see her perform! Also for her Aunt Momo who watched David Michael so Michael and I could really watch Grace.


 Grace did such a great job in the performance! I can't wait to see her grow and continue to be the "princess" she will always be to her daddy and I.
