Happy Birthday Rylee!

Pin It
17 yrs ago I watched her take her first breath and cry her first tear. I held her all night long just to cuddle her and look at how beautiful she was and still is. She was the easiest, sweetest little baby. I can not believe that my baby girl is 17! I can't believe she is going to be a SENIOR! Rylee, I love every part of being your Mom and every part of you being my daughter! Happy Birthday

Super Fun Weekend

Pin It Don't you just love those weekends where you have so many fun things going on that there is no time for cleaning house doing laundry or yard work or anything? We had one this weekend and I am ready for another already!

On Saturday we had a fun Jia Ting (potluck) with FCC. Lexi loved playing with all the other little girls and she loved seeing the horses and just being outside. We spent the better part of the day just hanging out and it was fantastic!

On Sunday we attended church and then spent the rest of our day by the pool with good friends and way too much food! Lots of fun watching 10 kids (yes 10 kids from just our family and theirs haha) splash around in the pool, make masterpieces with chalk and eat lots of "sticky white donuts" aka steamed buns (love ya Quinn)

Lexi gets fitted for her AFO's Wednesday. Grandma is visiting for a week the following Wednesday (so excited!) Oh my goodness... I have 6 days to turn Quincie's old room into a new guest room!!! I need to paint it and everything!

School is out next Thursday (WooHoo! I love having all my kids home)

I love the way she and her Daddy are looking at each other in this

Ahhh a place to take a little rest!

And pose my cuteness!

All for my daddy who is behind the camera!

Because he thinks everything I do is the greatest and cutest of all!

This horse kept giving her kisses. He was so tiny, a pony...but she liked
the big giant crazy horse the best!

Baby Legs, Baby Feet and Baby Shoes Oh My

Pin It

I can't believe I am posting about this! But the truth is, I just love baby legs baby feet and baby shoes! And I think Lexi should know about it because she might wonder why there are so many weird pictures of those things in my photo collection! I love Lexi's little legs because even though they are so very small... they still have little chubbers on them! And I love her feet because they are just the tiniest little cute things ever! They are a size 2 right now and even though I hate feet (non baby feet that is) I could just kiss her little feet all day. Really. And shoes, oh those baby shoes!! I LOVE See Kai Run Smaller shoes, they are made of butter soft leather and are seriously so sweet. I love her pedipeds too, but See Kai Run Smaller still wins. And I love all her Rhinestoned converse. She looks so darn cute in them and yes we have them in ever single color because I HAVE A PROBLEM!

It is hard to believe she was placed in my arms 6 months ago.

The 2 years of waiting and wondering have been replaced by love and joy unspeakable! Abiding in the will of the Father has brought us more joy and blessings than we ever thought possible!

My 1st Mothers day as a Mommy of 5

Pin It This Mothers Day was a truly special, sweet sweet day!

It began on Saturday when my sweet guy showed up with 72 Red Roses for his bride!

Then on Saturday Evening, Lexi stayed home with Daddy while Cassidy took me to a special Mothers Day dinner and a concert! Addison Road!!! I love Addison Road and after getting to meet JENNI DURING DINNER......SIT NEXT TO HER!!!yep you read that right! Well, now I love them even more. Jenni is so real and so much fun. The dinner was awesome, the concert was so much fun and going out with my special girl was just the best!

On Sunday Morning I woke up to find my guy missing from bed, a few minutes later he showed up at my bedside with a starbucks coffee, a beautiful card with an awesome gift card for some SHOPPING and a big kiss! Lexi woke up within minutes of that and Bryan came back with her carrying her first Mothers Day card to her mama! She had even signed it herself, so cute! Inside was more SHOPPING $$$!

When Brady woke up he gave me a super cute Toy Story Card with ....yep!! More Shopping $$
Oh this day! I love this day!

Then Rylee gave me the sweetest most amazing 100 reasons why she loves me letter that made me laugh and cry my eyes out at the same time! Oh how I love my kids!

We went to church at 9am. Sat with our "Hunan Family" that we love so much!

Attempting to give Shaelee a hug using no hands?

Lexi was so tired, she typically naps at 9am.

After Church we came home, Lexi took her nap while Quincie took me for a pedicure! Boy did I need it! I hadn't had one since before we left for China. GROSS! As they were scrubbing Quincies heels and all the yuck was coming off her foot she looked over at me and said "I can't wait to see yours Mommy". Thanks sweety! We had a great time. 3 hours later, I looked down at my feet and this is what I found???

Hmm, I guess I was so excited to have new feet that I forgot a little something. Bryan picked up lunch from one of my favorite restaurants and we ate it at home. We didn't want to battle the crowds and it was so nice to just all sit together and talk and laugh and take our time.

Later that afternoon we went out for some play time outdoors. The weather was simply beautiful!


Don't worry, he didn't wipe out, it's just a bad angle on the camera.

Being a Mom is the greatest gift from God. It is so much work and yet so much fun and so rewarding. I always try to remember the first part, it's a gift!
We ended our day, all 7 of us :) in the Hot Tub. It was so much fun being ALL together ALL day!
