I LOVE my new iPhone!

Marshall and the kids gave me an iPhone for my birthday and I am LOVING it! I am having a blast with different photography apps. Here are just a few of the most recent pictures I have taken.

This should probably be posted on a Wordless Wednesday post but there needs to be a few words! Number 1-- sorry for the background noise, we were having the carpets cleaned; Number 2--they are dancing to Country Girl Shake It For Me, inappropriate but funny; and Number 3--they are Marshall's and My children so excuse the lack of rhythm and just focus on their enjoyment!!!

Calling Dr. Brown

Tyler Brown, I know you want to play in the NFL, but if that doesn't work out for you how about med school? You are so stinkin' cute in scrubs!!!!

Sally the Camel

Emma sang this song ALL day today--and since it has been in my head ALL day I thought I would do the same for YOU!

First Day of First Grade!!!!!

We both survived today and they were only a few tears shed, and to be honest they were mine! Can you believe Tyler started first grade today?
We actually met his teacher, Ms. Carlson, on Monday and even then I got filled up with tears. I guess I was just in shock that he was going to be attending such a HUGE school. I am so used to his small little preschool where there were only 15 kids in his Kindergarten class and everyone knew everyone.
Tyler and Ms. Carlson.
He is now attending Wilson K-8 so he is a little bitty fish in a great big pond.
Tyler and his friend, Ethan, in front of the school.
Tyler and his buddy, Drew.
But I have to tell you....he did AWESOME. I am so proud of him for being so excited and for not even hesitating for a second. He had a great first day and I know the rest of the year is going to be just as fabulous!
High fiving his teacher in line and ready to start the day!

A Visit from Nana

Nana came last week and stayed for a few days. I had gotten to see her when I went to Matt's wedding in May and to Grammy's Memorial in June but she hadn't seen the kids since February so she needed a little kid fix. She got one too. We took advantage of her and snuck away for two nights to Marshall's favorite place to golf in Arizona, Tubac. He played a round and I had a spa day--we were both happy campers.
Nana took the kids to the movies, swam with them, and just spent time being entertained by two of the goofiest kids out there! Our visit was short but good, so good that Emma cried when she left and was willing to get on the plane andgo home with her!
Now we just need to figure out how to convince Papa Carl to move to Arizona so these visits aren't so few and far between. Any suggestions are welcome!

Summer Play Date

There was a week in between RLCDC starting and public school starting so we were able to help out some friends by keeping their girls for one of the days. Tyler will probably kill me one day for sharing these pictures but they are just so stinkin' cute!
I LOVE how nerdy he looks in his goggles next to these two beauties!
Emma was in HEAVEN having so many girls over to play. They swam and played dress up for hours. It was a great time and one of the calmest most entertaining play dates we have ever had!


Marshall was able to join us on one of our final summer outings---BOWLING! The kids really enjoyed going and I am pretty sure that I caught his good side in this picture!

In need of guests

My newly decorated Guest Room would love to have some occupants.
A big THANK YOU to my lovely and talented neighbor, Anna, for pretty much decorating the whole thing. Now all I need is an unlimited budget so I can get her going on the rest of the house!=)

She is in Pre-K

Let it be known that Emma is NOT in Preschool. She is in Pre-K now. I have made the mistake of saying preschool and have been corrected quite quickly by Miss Thing!=)
She was soooooo very excited to start school today.
Here she is on her first day last year...
And just look at her now. She is growing up way too fast for my taste.
As sad as I am to accept the fact that she is growing up, she is just as thrilled as she can be to back with her favorite teachers and friends!
