Summer Sleepover!

Tuesday was Landon's last day of school, so as a fun first night of summer I let him have Ben over for a sleepover. They had a great time!
They swam in our neighbor's pool, and had a blast with all the girls:)
After dinner at Wendy's they put together their puzzles they got with their meals.

They played in the backyard until the sun went down. They played so well together!!! They were building "ships" and played in the sandbox forever!

Before bed they read Landon's Pirate I Spy book.

In the morning they ate some yummy donuts!!!
Landon is already asking when the next sleepover is!!!!

Sun Filled Weekend!

We had such a fun weekend!!! The weather was so great!!! My pictures are in backwards order... sorry!! This pic below shows how curly Macee's hair is getting in the back. I also just love her in these little outfits where you can see her yummy thighs!!!

I could just eat those legs up!!!! ;)
My mom took this picture and I LOVE it!!!!! It is one of my all time favorites!!!

We had dinner at my parents tonight and Landon and Aunt Carrie played some "Mouse Trap" before dinner.

Macee and her Mamaw. Macee was showing us how sweet she is tonight. I would say "love your Mamaw" and she would lay her head on her shoulder and say "awwww" in the sweetest little voice. She did it to all of us, so cute!

Giving her Mama smooches!!

This afternoon we went over to Ben's to play with his new sprinkler. The boys had a blast. They kept asking to get in the pool, so Uncle Matt said yes. It was freezing!! They are true boys and did not care! Their lips were sooo purple!!

I just love it when Macee makes this face. She scrunches up her nose and it is so funny!!! She does it all the time!

I couldn't get enough of her in her little matching swimsuit and sunhat!

Silly boys enjoying the hot sun!

This has to be the cutest backside ever;)

On Saturday Landon went to a pool party for a little girl in his class. Their pool was heated so no purple lips!! This is Landon and his best friend Dani. They get along so well and are just inseparatable!!!

Landon and Dani playing in the pool.
We had such a great weekend, it makes me even more excited about spending the summer with my kiddos!!!

I have taken so many pictures of Macee lately, I thought I would share some of them :)
This is one of her favorite things to do, tear up my magazines!
She loves her new mower, she cant walk with it yet cause the handle isnt very sturdy so she crawls and pushes it!!! So funny!!!

She loves to walk behind her little stroller.

She has also found a new love for climbing. She tries to climb my table by putting her foot on the shelf below.

This wood activity center keeps her pretty busy!!
Here she is in Landon's room just watching him play..... She loves to go in his room with him and "try"to do what he does, or just be his audience :)

Her hair is really getting longer... I can not wait until the day I can put it in pig tails!!!!!!!!!

She loves the laugh and learn table she got for her birthday from Papa and Grandma Beth.

Trying to play with Bubba's toys again..

Sooo stinking cute!!! Notice her farmers tan already. I cant wait to see how tan she gets once we start going to the pool. She tans so easily even with her baby sunscreen on!

School Fun Day!!!

Landon had Fun Day at school on Friday. This is a great day put on PTO filled with jump houses, slides, water slides, balloon clown, Shriner popcorn, live music, and just all around fun!!!
Landon and his buddy Nicholas waiting in line to get wet!
Love this action shot!!!

Having a great time!!

It was perfect weather, and the popsicles could not have tasted better!

Landon got an alien/hat from the AMAZING balloon man. It was such a great day. Landon has two more days left in Pre-K and then he will be in KINDERGARTEN!!!!! YAY!!!!

Nothing Sweeter

I love hearing Macee say "Mama", she has the sweetest little voice. Of course EVERY time I get the video camera out and try to get her saying it on video she just looks at me like I'm crazy!!!! Listen carefully cause she is stingy with those "mamas." Enjoy!:)

Just some random pics...

Last week we went to Rooster Days. Macee had a great time at the park. She is just crazy about swinging!!

and Marc is just crazy about her :)
Landon of course had to ride every ride he was tall enough for!

Uncle Luke got Landon and Ben matching Batman tattoos!!

This weekend was our neighbor Abigail's birthday party. It was a Princess/Prince party. Landon dressed up as a prince. He didn't want to wear the full costume cause it was hot outside.

Macee wore her Halloween costume! She was a flower for Halloween, but it still fit and it looks like a princess kinda also!

She had a great time watching all the bigger kids play.

Today at school was Landon's Pre-K picnic. We had to move it inside cause of the rain. After the picnic they performed a little musical play they have been learning in music class. It was very cute and funny!!!

Landon - one of the pigs building his house of sticks.

It was wear purple day for Teacher Appreciation Week, but Landon was not to happy with his purple shirt this morning so he chose to wear his uniform shirt instead... I guess he thinks boys can't wear purple. :)

ONE year in the making!

One year ago today our family became a family of four. It was one of the scariest days of my life. I was so excited to meet my baby Macee. I was so happy to be having a baby girl. But I was so scared that they were taking her to early. I remember as soon as I heard her cry I knew she was okay. It was the hardest five days of my life, watching her lay in her bed in the NICU. I didn't want to leave her side. It was very SCARY in the beginning, but as soon as the "nice" doctor told us that she would be home by the weekend, all was okay in the world again. I am so thankful that Macee only had to stay five days. We were very lucky. I will never forget bringing her home on Mother's Day, it was the best Mother's Day I will ever have!

One Year In The Making:

Fresh out of the womb!

A few hours after her birth. She became so puffy from all the stuff they were putting in her. Notice the difference in this picture and the one right above it.

I just wanted to hold her so bad. Thankfully, a couple days later I was able to.

Getting some rest in the NICU.

She started loosing all her puffyness and became sooo tiny!!!

Daddy, Landon, and I are so excited to be a family of four now. As Landon would say, "Macee, you completed our family"

A few more pictures from her first year:

She had lots of dark hair, then if fell out. It grew back a nice light brown color.

Skinny legs...but not for long;)

I started putting skirts on her right from the start:)
