I can't believe I haven't blogged in 5 months!! That is ridiculous. I love to look back at what the kids were doing and crazy things they said so the fact that I have neglected this space for such a long time is unacceptable. So...let me try to catch up. The pictures are in the order in which they occurred.
Once it warms up the tiniest bit the kids are ready to get outside when they get home from school. We stay out until around 7 every night. We have always been that family who eats later than everyone else, especially in the spring and summer. It's hard to get everybody in (including me) when it's still light outside.
Carson hooked the trailer up to his bike and then tried to ride off with it. LOL!
Lilley Grace had a Fairy Tale ball at her school in March. She dressed as Anna from Frozen.
Then it was Easter. So early this year!
We went to our church's Easter egg hunt and Carson found the golden egg in his age group! He picked a stuffed lamb out of the prize box.
Easter pics at church
In this picture, Carson reminds me of the Grinch when he smiles. It's so hard to get him to smile. He'll say he doesn't remember how to...then he gives these goofy grins. See pics above and below...
We've also been spending a ton of time with this little beauty! I'm her unofficial Aunt. My BFF moved into our neighborhood and I get to see her everyday if I want to! Alisha and I have lived in the same neighborhood or the same house for 25+ years. Kenzie Jo is my heart!
We've been to some of Alisha's son, Alex's, baseball games. My kids love her kids. Carson is up to the fence talking to Alex.
LG and Kenzie
Our cousins, Harrison, and Bryson, had their birthday parties at the skating rink. Carson did not want to wear the skates after about 2 minutes. He said, "These things make me fall down."
He makes this face all the time when he is thinking or trying hard to do something. When he and Andy both make it it shows just how much they look alike.
LG pushing Bryson around.
Both kids sang at church on April 10. This was Carson's first time to get up in front of everyone. He was so cute!
I broke my toe 3 weeks ago. :( LG stopped in front of me and I ran into the back of her foot with my toes. The middle one snapped. I have been walking around in a walking shoe for 3 weeks~annoying! At least I had just had a pedi. :)
LG's church choir put on a musical. It was too cute.
Andy and LG went to Life Church for Daddy/Daughter date night. She got a manicure, got her face painted, and they played games. Then they went to dinner at Ciao Bella afterward. They had so much fun. LG picked out this dress and wouldn't let Andy see it until she was all dressed. My heart smiled.
Kingsbury's prom was at the end of April. We always have so much fun people watching and just being silly. My sister-girl, the ebony to my ivory, Tamara Bradshaw.
Mama and I took the kids to see Mamee for Mother's Day. The kids are so sweet with her.
Andy went out off town to play golf with my cousin in Birmingham the first weekend in May and I went to a shrimp boil with our usual crew. Kids, dogs, shrimps, and all. :)
LG sang with the "big" choir last Sunday for their final performance of this semester.
And yesterday, LG's spotlight class had a Civil War themed Garden Party. She loved wearing this dress we borrowed from her best friend, Ellie.
We are off to Florida next week for a much needed family vacation! I can't wait to post pics of that experience!
