Notice the pinkies are out - that is the mark of a true lady! HaHa
Here are some pictures from one of their tea parties 4 years ago. Taylor was 3 and Averi was 9 months old. This was the summer we lived in VA.
And this past Wednesday my Mema came to visit us. Isn't she cute? The kids absolutely love her:) And of course she adores them.

Look at that sweet face:) I can already see the little boy in him trying to come out. Luckily the clean sheets that I still have not put on the beds are blocking his way:)

This is definitely our favorite summertime TV show. We have looked forward to it every year since 2005. I would consider the two of us BB addicts:)! Luckily we get our fix 3 times a week. The newest season premiered this past Sunday night, and all day I was so excited. Sometimes I would forget and think there was nothing to look forward to, then I would remember BB10, and I would be happy again! Is that bad? I don't really know what it is that keeps us coming back for more. It's just a group of people stuck in a house for three months, with no access to the outside world. I guess it's all the drama that ensues and the fact that I'm not sure I could do it. I don't think I could leave my family and be secluded from everything and everyone I know. So far nothing crazy has happened, but I'm sure that will all change. Who knows what twists and turns they will surprise us with.
It always takes me awhile to get to know the house guests. Presently, only a few have grabbed my attention:
Renny: Because she is so loud and flamboyant.
Jerry: Because he is 75 years old.
Steven: Because he is a gay rodeo rider (from Dallas, no less).
Anyway, we will be watching faithfully every Sunday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights to see who is eventually crowned the winner of BB10!

Today, on July 8, 2008, we celebrate 8 years of marriage;)
I couldn't imagine or want anyone else by my side.
The wedding party
"I now pronounce you..."
Seth, Brian, Chad, and Nathan
Love this picture
I cannot believe we drove off in that truck - what were we thinking? He didn't even wash it, I don't think:)

Second of all, I am so thankful. Thankful that I live in the good ole USofA. Thankful that I am free to worship how I choose. Thankful that I am free to write this blog. Thankful for three healthy, beautiful children. And thankful that I have a hope and a future that continues long after this life is over! I don't ever want to take any of that for granted.
So...today was a good day. The rain...the clouds...I love days like today! This morning Dondi, Kristi, Logan, and Sydney came over to decorate the girls' bikes and Connor's wagon for the parade that was supposed to be at Vintage tonight. We ate lunch at Chili's, and then took T, A, and S to get their fingernails painted and decked out for the 4th. It was a great start to the holiday weekend!
All-American Boy (with a flag in his diaper;)
They chose blue polish with red stars (much to the lady's disapproval that was doing their nails. She said "Fingernail too short" What?! The little stars were about the size of a pinhead. We kindly insisted that red, jeweled stars were what they wanted and that is FINALLY what they got;) You gotta love Wal-Mart nail salons!
My kiddos: Averi, Connor, and Taylor
All-American Girl #2
They were ready for the parade.
Just Kidding - it started pouring down rain.
Look at the sky!
They had so much fun! That's Taylor sliding down. (Can you see Averi at the top of the slide? She FINALLY went down after much hesitation)
I love my baby boy and a good thunderstorm!
They ended up going on with the parade, but by then the kids were soaked and ready to go.
He loves playing with balloons. He was cracking up in the back!
