Little boy!

This kid cracks me up!!  I want to say he hates being on his stomach but I guess he doesn't.  None of the other kids purposefully rolled over and then hung out looking around the room like this one done.  Problem is he gets tired of it and then just cries and cries till we come roll him over.  The thing is, he can roll both ways.  But he doesn't when he gets mad!  He just moans till we come save him.  He doesn't always have the passy, but if he is in the mood he really loves it.  Isn't his comb over the best?!  At least three times a week I declare I am going to cut it but when the moment comes I just can't do it!  I love the last pic where he is looking to the side - his life is so crazy with 3 siblings he never knows what is coming!  Not much makes me happier than how he always has those eyebrows up!

It is so much fun to have kids that are old enough to enjoy going to concerts with us!  And lucky for us they love the same music we do.  Well, I guess not lucky.  They pretty much only get to listen to what we allow so it seems pretty obvious we would all like the same things!  Since I missed the Newsboys concert back in October due to Owen being just born we decided to go the next one we had a chance to attend. 

A plus was that it was in College Station which is always fun to go back to.  The church was actually kinda small so even though we were on the back row we had great seats.  Seeing Audio Adrenaline and Newsboys together was pretty much like reliving junior high for me.  Only thing missing was Astroworld!  So much fun!

A little love!

Aren't they just the cutest?  Love getting to pick a teensy something special for these guys!

They each got a set of hugging stuffed animals, a sweet treat, and the BIG gift - surprise tickets to see the Newsboys in concert in College Station!  We were so bummed that I had to miss the last concert and Josh had to leave early so even though it was so close to the last one we decided to surprise everybody.  They couldn't believe it! 

Even little Reidy boy was totally into his gift!  I thought it was so adorable how he picked it up right away and really loved when the kids read the card to him.  It is so much fun having a baby in the house again!  He is a ham!  Chewing on his fingers.  Always!

2015 Valentine's Boxes!

Once again the kiddos made Valentines boxes to take to our local homeschool group's Valentine's skating party.  They thought long and hard and really came up with their own ideas this year.  Annie of course wanted to make a Doc McStuffin's doctors bag.  Check her out modeling it!

I told her she could pose anyway she wanted and that is what she came up with!  ha ha!

Noah was crazy stressed for a month trying to decide what to make so when he came up with the Cypress TKD building I knew I had to agree just to save my sanity!  It was one of the more challenging boxes we have ever made!  He was so excited that he won for most creative box in his age group for the 2nd year in a row!  It might be hard to tell, but that is him and Wyatt in the windows on the front with their teacher Mr. Dillon on the side.  So cute!

Wyatt made the most amazing duck blind ever!  Notice how he even wore his Duck Dynsasty shirt to the party!  No coincidence, no sir!  He planned every last detail.  This boy did this entire box by himself!  All I did was print out his photo for him.  He was so, so proud of it and absolutely heartbroken that he did not win.  I was pretty heartbroken for him, too, since I knew how many hours he spent finding the perfect leaves and moss and gluing it all on.  He really thought about all aspects of the design - he insisted on painting the water paper so it looked muddy like a real swamp.  And then carefully glued on each duck.  He was thrilled when we spotted those in the dollhouse section at Hobby Lobby!

Wish I had Owen in the pic but he was already strapped into his car seat and I wasn't gonna go through that whole madness again!  Can't wait for next year!
