For My Peeps That Aren't On Facebook

Where has the time gone?! Summer is almost over and I haven't even blogged once! I have so many pictures to share of what we've been up to...hopefully I'll get to that soon. But till then I thought I'd share the pictures we just had taken of the kids. They are Bethany's 4 year and Hayden's 1 year pictures. I wish I could say these were taken in our yard...but they weren't. They were taken in the yard of a family that goes to our church. A little farm that sits up on a hill on the edge of town...Drew and I love the place and they were sweet enough to let us have the kids pictures taken there. My parent also had Peyton, my nephew, part of the week so he got in on the action as well.

Bethany's last day of Preshcool was May 21st. They celebrated by having their field day that day and Drew, Hayden and I went to watch.

Bethany ready for her last day of Preschool. She was so excited that Daddy was going into work late so he could take her to school that morning and attend her field day. They have such a special bond and I hope they will always have that.

At Preschool Field Day there was...

a bean bag tosses,

sidewalk chalk,


a parachute,

flower seeds to plant and take home,

funny things to laugh at,

popsicles to eat,

friends to hang out with,

a little brother to watch everything going on,

and teachers to say good bye to for the summer. This is Bethany's favorite teacher, she says she's going to be Mrs. Wheeler when she grows up. :) I'm not sure where the other teachers where...I wish we would have gotten a picture of all three of them with Bethany.


As for Hayden, he started the summer out right...with a birthday and new toys to play with!

One of his favorite things he got is this bubble mower from Uncle Daren, Aunt Heather and baby Mason.

WOW!! That's a lot easier!!

Hayden is also working on cutting 4 one year molars. And this is about to do me in...and Hayden too! My sweet easy going little guy has turned into a very unhappy grumpy-gus. He just follows me around and wants to be picked up and once you pick him up he wants down. As soon as you put him down he wants back up...he just doesn't know what he wants.

The only thing that seems to make him happy is going outside. He'll walk around and picks up rocks and sticks. Then he wonders over to the swing set and points to his swing and we swing awhile. Then he wants out and wonders around or plays with a ball till he goes back to the swing and points again. He just goes back and forth...but it seems to be the only thing that makes him we wonder and swing, wonder and get the picture.

I took this the other night when he looked beyond pathetic. **Yesterday I found that one of the molars had finally pushed through!! Maybe there is a light at the end of the tunnel!! I hope to welcome my sweet easy going little guy back very, VERY soon.**

I took this Saturday night at dinner...have you seen anything funnier?! Hayden was so tired but that wasn't going to stop him from eating those cheetos! He was in such a daze that I don't think he even knew I took his picture.

Hope y'all are off to having a great summer! :)

Hayden's Birthday Party

We celebrated Hayden's first birthday Saturday. We had family and friends over for a cookout in our backyard. Here are just a few pictures we took.
