Wordless Wednesday



Hanson and Gayley had so much fun at the new Explore Playground and Splashpad today. It is large and pretty awesome. Gayley had a sweet ‘big sister’ swing with her on this disc swing. Hanson loved being able to do the monkey bars all by himself. We will definitely be going back and taking friends with us! Yeah for summer! #summertime #splashpad #playground #keepingcool #summerfun #brotherandsister

Last Day MDO

What an amazing time Gayley has had at Little Lambs MDO. She absolutely loves her teachers Mrs.Leisha and Mrs. Lindsey. They love the children so well there. The school thinks of everything; every occasion, every theme, every season, every Holiday the halls and classrooms get decorated. The Adventure Room team is amazing and they go all out! She loves chapel each week and has learned the sweetest prayers and songs. Gayley was so excited about getting on stage for her End of School production. I love all their songs and motions they did. Just too cute! She certainly doesn’t have any stage fright! She loves being in the spot light!!

She sure is gonna miss her sweet friends Tensley, Stella, Ella Kate and Caroline. Such treasures.

Feline Hygiene

Archie oh Archie what a great cat! Whenever I’m getting ready for work he will lay in the sink opposite me and just keep me company. He is the best snuggler, mole hunter, head bunter and fantastic at cat naps! On this day he pulled Gayley’s toothbrush toward him and started licking the toothpaste off it and chewing on it. I sware none of this was staged! I grabbed my phone and wah la we have these funny feline hygiene photos!

The Flash Party

Hanson has talked about his The Flash #7 party ALL year long and it finally happened!

He also wanted it at Chuck E. Cheese even though he is deathly afraid of the giant mouse. Lol! We had to prod him little by little to just stand slightly in front of the robotic Chuck E. all the while he was cringing and checking his back to make sure it wouldn’t get him. He does however love the games and was over joyed by all the tickets he earned. He invited his two best buddies, Emmett and Wesley and they had a ball!

Hanson was so happy to have all 4 of his Big brothers there playing games with him. It was great having all our kids together for his 7th Birthday! He is such a sweet happy boy and it was so much fun celebrating him. Happy 7th Birthday Hanson or “Seven” as Daddy said he is going to call him all year long!

Animal Crackers

This twirly miss twinkle toes had her first ballet recital and loved it! She started Corky Bell School of Dance this past September. Her favorite friends in class are Hayley who she’s dancing next to on stage and tiny Sophia she’s pictured with. She couldn’t wait to wear her costume and get on stage for her “concert”. I must admit I was a bit let down that after taking lessons every week since September that they only did one song/dance for the recital but this is our first go at it so didn’t know what to expect. Before I left her to go to my seat Gayley was all giddy and told me “Mommy I won’t be shy!”. She was all smiles as the curtain opened and did her dance routine so well. She wasn’t shy at all! She leapt into her Daddy’s arms after the show and loved her bouquet of flowers. Sweet Gayley ballerina!

Her class danced to “Animal Crackers In My Soup” ya know the one by Shirley Temple.

Animal crackers in my soup
Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop
Gosh, oh gee! but I have fun
Swallowing animals one by one

In every bowl of soup I see
Lions and tigers watching me
I make ’em jump right through a hoop
Those animal crackers in my soup
When I get hold of the big bad wolf
I just push him under to drown
Then I bite him in a million bits
And I gobble him right down!
When they’re inside me where it’s dark
I walk around like Noah’s Ark
I stuff my tummy like a goop
With animal crackers in my soup!
