Busy living life...

Seems I've been MIA lately...I will say it was great!! I was able to catch up on laundry-I haven't been caught up since we moved in in November. It feels awesome!! Cleared the dining room table off. You can see the before in this post. Scary, but now nice. Enjoying the children. That is my favorite!! I don't want their memories to consist of Mommy sitting on the computer saying, "wait a minute". I don't want to miss what is going on in the here and now with them. I know that one day I will turn around and they will be grown. I know{at least I've been told} that one day I will miss this time of them being small.
Just sharing a few pics from the week...in random order...

Baby jail. {Don't worry, no babies were harmed in the making of this photo.}
The kids thought it would be funny to put this hat on Fisher. Amazingly enough, he kept it on for a long time.

The boy is walking. Circles around the house. This day they were marching around and around. See our trash bag?? White trash...Hahaha!!


Homeschool year end pool party.

Tea parties, movie times{where I fall asleep}, hmmm...sounds like movie time!!

Father's Day. I made Chess Cake for Cory. Lilly wanted him to have a candle so while shopping at Publix, I got a number 6 candle for all the years he has been a Dad. He is an awesome one, too!!

It looks like you've been having a lot of fun and making memories with your kids!

It is so true, my oldest is now 10 and I miss those days when she was a toddler. They grow up too fast!

The elusive "Cory"... Now I can see him in your kiddos! I see you also made yourself a towel like the one you made me! I usually give all my stuff away and have none of my own projects! Good for you for making yourself one! Have a fun summer... I know you are counting the days till Fall though!
