A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

KG and CT relaxing and Mimi and Poppa's house.
CT and Henry enjoying their meal. When Henry was done he threw his plate on the ground. :)
The Family
Wheelbarrow Ridin'- When the "motor" started getting tired the kids decided they needed a younger motor. AKA-Uncle Chris or Chad. :) They were nowhere to be found. :)
KG got her fair share of cake. She ate every last bite.

*This past week we finally took a MUCH needed vacation. We headed down to FS where my parents live and spent some time with them and Uncle Chris who came in from NYC. CT got up that morning and put on his NYC shirt just for Uncle Chris. :) That boy thinks ahead. While my parents had the kids they lost the beloved "bankie". My mom and I back tracked everywhere they had been. Only in FS can you pull up to the mall and at 10:30 run into someone you know to go in the mall and look for a "bankie". It was no where to be found so my mom got up early the next morning and headed to a little shop on town that carries them. THANK GOODNESS. It would have been a long trip ahead. I think we were more traumatized than KG. She probably would have been just fine. :) She is thrilled with her new "bankie" and doesn't even know the difference.
*Then on Saturday we headed up to NW Arkansas to see Uncle Chad and the rest of my cousins. We had two missing and missed them terribly. Although that meant extra potato salad and chocolate pie for me. :) We all had a GREAT time! We also got to stay in Uncle Chad's new townhouse. It is really cute and he is thrilled to have it! While at my Aunt and Uncle's house the kids got to run around and play with their second cousin Henry. He is a cutie! They had a wheelbarrow ride and plenty of chocolate cake! Mee Maw got to join us and she enjoyed getting to see the kids run around. I'm sure they wore her out though.

*On Sunday we then headed to the big metropolis of Branson! We were a little disappointed when we got there only to find out that Silver Dollar City was closed for the three days we were there. Wouldn't you know. Not so great planning on my part. It ended up working out though. We took the kids to Celebration City and White Water. They had a blast! CT rode every ride he could. There were plenty he wanted to ride, but he was not tall enough. We had to pry KG off of the swings. Since we were there on an off week the kids got to ride as much as they wanted. We also got to see the Chinese Acrobats who were incredible!! Then on Tuesday night we went to Dixie Stampede. That was fun! Although T and KG left with their allergies all stirred up. :( We ended our trip with a detour through Bolivar to see some old friends of Daddy's. It was a lot of fun to be together as a family!
