Walking, Soccer, and Ponytail

This week my "baby" will be turning 1! Where has the time gone?! We're having her party next week when all the family can make it to town. We've had an exciting week of firsts....Reese started walking! She's actually going from place to place, not just a few steps. She has a bit of the Frankenstien look while walking. Reese uses her toy walker as a ladder rather than a walker. Check out the picture of Reese in the brown shirt-yes, see it-her first ponytail. Pretty cute huh? She actually kept it in for the day.

Drew's also had a week of firsts...... a bad one-a cavity! What's up with that? I didn't get cavities till I was in college! Thankfully Uncle Cory is in his last year of dental school and can fix Drew up! A good one-Drew had his first soccer game. Have you ever watched 4 and 5 year olds try to play-absolutely HILARIOUS! The boys were SO cute. Notice Drew's bright blue shoes-he picked those out himself. His quote "Blue is my FAVORITE color!" Our team did not win but, he left exhausted. Drew's also got a competitive bone in him-he was not happy when the other team scored-we had to have the attitude talk. The picture is of Drew's buddy and the dad's.

Alright all you football fans.....let the games begin!! The countdown to college football is coming to an end, Pig SOOOOOIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Enjoy the games this weekend!

Beach trip

Last week we took a trip to the beach with some of Andy's family. We had some comical memories along the way. Like....we were renting a mini van and when Andy showed up to get it, all they had was a 12 passenger van. So....we all loaded up in the big van and took off for the beach. Funny site with 4 carseats and 6 adults. All was well at the beach until the stomach bug found me, then Andy.....not what you want on vacation. It knocked us out for a day but we were back to the beach life the next day. Drew was not a fan of going out in the ocean-he'd rather swim in the pool and build sand castles. Reese loved playing at the water's edge where the waves come in.

I talked to Brittney Saturday, she was so grateful for those of you who visited Cooper's website. Keep praying for them, they leave next week.
