Springs Day

During the hot summer months, we sure cannot get enough of the springs.  Our favorite, Hart Springs in Bell Florida.  One of these beautiful Saturdays-we even got Granny, Aunt Chrystal, Grace and Ty to come for a cook out and all day springs day!  The kids had so much fun, can you tell?

























2019 Polaroids

My dad has been into photography for a while now, not sure if it was a way to connect with me or if he truly has the photography bug-and maybe I get my interest from him :).  Either way, when we went for a visit after his chemo treatment he pulled out a new camera he bought and took a photo of each of us.  Now I need me one of these bad boys.....the photos turned out pretty darn cute if you ask me.  What do you think?  Oh and to be fair to my dad-I took the photo of my brother Matthew-hahaha!



School Shopping

The kids sure do love school shopping-haha.  Xander is not pictured because....well-he is NOT a gators fan!  I love spending the day with these creeps.






We found some great deals!  Had a great lunch & a lot of laughs :)

Tooth Fairy is going to Visit

Yesterday was Xander's State All-Stars Tournament Game.  We were in Live Oak for the morning (a very hot morning).  Billy's mom, both his sisters & my sweet nephew Ty and beautiful niece Grace were also braving the heat to watch his first game.  As the morning went on, Chrystal went to take a photo of our babies being sweet & she started laughing about Olivia's loose tooth-because apparently it was pretty obvious in the photo it was loose & ready to come out.
Now let's zoom in on that......haha I can't stop laughing about that darn tooth.....
about an hour later, we finally have the tooth out after a few tears, an almost melt down & needing to sit on me to recover from being threatened with me helping her remove it later at home.....lol.  IDK but having a tooth come out for a child is very traumatic.

but now, she is sleeping away in her bed waiting to wake up to see what the tooth fairy has left her for that sweet tiny little tooth.

Love in the Afternoon

When our sweet girl comes home from her visits either with her other family or with my mom (who is watching her every other week for a few days so we can work) she is so happy.  Don't get me wrong-I am not saying she doesn't enjoy her visits with family - but she misses home, her room, her mama, her daddy, her mean brothers....yeah-she's a happy girl.  I love her little sweet self, and feel very lucky to be her mama.  How did I get so lucky to have two beautiful sweet daughters?

(I realize this photo is a little warm and grainy-but it's from my iphone-inside a dark house-with just a lamp to illuminate)
