Go Eagles!

Friday night we went to cheer on the Lindale Eagles football team. This was our first game this season to attend and the girls were super excited. We went with Jake, Crystal and Madeline, which made it even more fun!! Camden and Claire had fun cheering and watching the band play and Carlyle was entertained by all the lights, sounds and people! We had a great time and the weather was great! Looking forward to our next game, which will be Homecoming! A special little girl that we know very well will be participating in the Homecoming activities at the pep rally and at the game. Stay tuned for details and pics:)

Baby Selah is here!

Monday evening, baby Selah was born. Jeremy's sister, Rachel, gave birth to a sweet little girl a little before 9:00pm. She weighed 6lb 12oz and was 19 1/2" long. Since Camden and Claire had school the next day, the girls and I headed home around 6:30 to finish homework, get baths and get to bed. They were sad they couldn't see Selah, but I promised them that we would see her the next day after school. Of course, we are all thrilled to have another little girl in the family! Congratulations to Rachel, Rex and big brother Jaxson!

Camden was a natural holding her and did not want to give her up to anybody!!! I think Rachel has found her babysitter:)
Claire and Selah
Sweet baby!
Carlyle had to have her turn, too!

Carlyle turns 2!!

Sunday was Carlyle's 2nd birthday and she awoke to one of her favorite things...BALLOONS! Not just any balloons, but two of her favorite characters...MINNIE and ELMO!!! She was so excited. I don't think we even needed gifts. She was having so much fun with her balloons. But, you only turn 2 once, so we had to get her some fun presents.

She loves to sing the "I love you" song from Barney, and as much as it annoys me, it sure is cute when my baby sings it. So, we got her a Barney book that plays the song.

She also got a Minnie Mouse that talks and her bow lights up. It's really cute and Carlyle loves it. She's finally figured out how to squeeze her hand to make her talk and she will do it at night when she's supposed to be sleeping. Ha!

Happy Birthday to our sweet Carlyle! We love you so much and are so thankful you are a part of our family! Your make us smile and laugh daily and you definitely keep us on our toes. You have alot of "spunk" and are just so likeable:) You are such a social butterfly and will say hi to anyone and everyone, no matter where we are. You go anywhere, like you own the place. It doesn't matter if it's the grocery store, school or a restaurant. You LOVE men, especially older men. You seem to be attracted to them and will just go up and talk to them, which I'm sure makes their day. You bring so much joy to everyone that you are around and I pray that you will continue to bring smiles to others' faces as you grow older. Happy 2nd birthday to our sweet Baby C!!

When life throws you lemons....

Today was Callen's 2nd birthday and the theme was "You are my Sunshine"/Lemonade. What a fun party!! Camden and Claire passed out lemonade to the guests and then even decided to try and make homemade lemonade from squeezing lemons. They had a little help from Charley and Carter. They did pretty good! Happy Birthday Callen!!

Cullen's birthday!!

This afternoon was Cullen's birthday party and the girls couldn't wait! The party was at The Discovery Science Place and they had a blast!! Camden and Claire had lots of fun playing with Taegan and Nellie Grace. (Just want to say congrats to Taegan's mom, Jennifer. She had a baby boy yesterday morning and he is so cute!!)
