Creating space to listen helps up to develop those gifts and hopes."

my FAVORITE time of the day....and hopefully his too!!
Check out these boots, now does that say "hard work" or what??
Brianna, Kylie and Samantha had a sleepover here one night!
Paisley was happy to have some "girl time"!! Breakfast with my beautiful nieces the morning after our sleepover!
Pancakes, scrambled eggs and brown sugar bacon! YUM!
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY DADDY~
"Dad is my Hero" is what their shirts read.
Buddies for life!
Bless her heart she basically made it while I tended to the children.
I love my Mom.
He met Paisley for the first time.
Crazy thing is, I remember holding Lance when he was this age!!
this was it! "OOOOOH, yummy! Thank you so much!"
thankfully he got distracted before I actually had to EAT it!!
and PLEASE TAKE NOTICE TO THE LOVELY NEW COUNTER TOPS
MY AMAZING HUSBAND PUT IN FOR ME!!
One Friday night he calls, "hi honey, I think I'll put new counter tops in for you this weekend."

she is sleeping so well and we couldn't be more grateful, it was a tough/long/tiring eight weeks. she is consistently sleeping from 9 pm - 6 am! who-hoo! we all just love this little girl so much it's not even funny. she is quick to laugh, very patient and just the sweetest thing ever. if you're not looking at her she will smile and coo until you do. and guess what, i think she's going to have blue eyes!!!! not quite sure yet, but they aren't brown that's for sure.
which fills our hearts with love."

We ate our picnic and watched fireworks in the distance. The boys were a bit distracted and I think they watched the fireworks for .9 seconds....but it was still fun just BEING TOGETHER. Paisley-girl slept the entire time.All in all we had a great weekend together. I love my family so much!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA,
LAND OF THE FREE,
HOME OF THE BRAVE!!
