Oh The Things They'll Say

It's Official. Reed no longer has a pacifier...or a PIE as he called it! It's been about 2 weeks and he hasn't said anything about it and is talking a lot more!

For example:

Last night at Kai's Kindergarten graduation Reed was having a big ol' time playing on the row of bleachers in front of us. An older lady sat down right in front of us where Reed had intended on landing next.

He stared a hole right through her...

Reed: Hey...get outa my way!
Old Lady: Oh I'm so sorry, I'm in your way??
Reed: Uh Huh..move outa my way!

Needless to say I was embarrassed that my child is so rude. If only that little old lady could see how my little Reed is at home. So sweet and loving.

Mother's Day

I had an amazing mother's day yesterday. I didn't have to run here and there and everywhere to see other was just for me! All day! We did absolutely nothing but watch movies, play outside and just be together. It was so wonderful. I have such a wonderful loving family and I couldn't have asked for a better day.

It started with Kai at 7:30 whispering...

Kai: Daddy, wake up, it's Mother's Day we have to fix mommy breakfast

Eric: Ok, I'll be there in a minute.

I then proceed to get up to use the restroom

Kai: Mommy...don't get up don't get up go back to sleep.

Then later that day Kai, Reed and I were outside while Chadd and Eric were at the grocery and Reed was up in Kai's tree house screaming

Reed: Hap Birfday You. Hap Birfday You!

Me: Thank you Reed but It's not my Birthday, It's Mother's Day.

Reed: Hap Mov Day You. Hap Mov Day You

Me: Thank you baby, I love you.

Reed: I wuv u I wuv u I wuv u

He was screaming this so loud I know everyone in the neighborhood hear it and that made me smile even more!

Easter 2011

So I skipped right over Easter and forgot to share all my wonderful memories. Easter this year was busy busy. 1st Easter Church Service at Cedar Grove which was so nice. I got to share Easter with one of my best friends...Shannon and my cousin Austin even joined was magical!

Next off to Audrey's house for the Easter get together or maybe I should call it Swampland. The heavy rains had nearly flooded her land and left her yard a watery mess. We all walked around barefoot and by the end of the day we were covered in mud. Audrey had mud splashed all up her butt and back from walking around in flip flops. It was comical. We hunted Eggs, ate and enjoyed the company of ALL THE CHILDREN! There are so many! It was crazy but so wonderful.

Reed and Kai loved the babies. This is Anderson. I couldn't get a good photo of Kai loving on Taylor because Madison kept kissing all over her baby sister and getting in the way.  :)  Reed kept "petting" their heads and hugging their necks nearly choking them to death. But it was all out of love!

Here I am with my precious boys. They are so beautiful aren't they!

Here is my mom with a few of her sisters. I say a few because there is 6 of them. Mom (on the far right) is a twin and the other twin lives in Indiana. Audrey is the one next to mom she is the baby. Debbie next is the mother of my 2 cousins that keep having all the babies! and last but not least my aunt B (Donna) is such a joy, we never get to see her that often, she was able to come and spend the day with us it was such a treat. My Aunt Diana was there but didn't make it to the photo shoot for some reason!  :( 

Here are my boys posing in a water puddle on Audrey's porch. I couldn't stop Reed from jumping in every puddle he could find!

Look at all those babies! Ashlee has 3 and 1 on the way. Amber has 2 and 1 one the way. My cousin Stephanie has a boy that is Kai's age and then a set of twins and then I have just the 2.

Kai got a ton of eggs

Ready Set Go!
