Good Morning to You

Because it's Wednesday (and I hear Wednesdays can be difficult for some people). And because keeping this level of cuteness to myself would just be selfish.  Enjoy. 

It's easy to see where E gets his incredible looks's ok to be jealous that my husband is this attractive.

Good morning and happy Wednesday people!

It's 2:30am...Here's to the Month of May

I have finally found time to update our long abandoned blog.  Most of you are probably sleeping since it is 2:30am...but not me.  I'm wide awake because my daughter is wide awake.....because she has been throwing up since 11:30pm.  So, we are watching Elmo, waiting to see if the worst of this little illness is behind us. I have to say, I couldn't love her more than I love her at this moment.  As weird as it may sound, I'm so thankful for this time with her...i'll talke every second I can get with her....even if it involves barf at 2:30 in the morning (however, i can't help but wonder, WHY CAN'T KIDS THROW UP DURING THE DAY???).

Anyway, here is a little pictorial update on the month of May.  At this point you may be thinking, "wait aren't you gonna tell the story of how y'all got back to Greenville?" And the answer is no.  It's my (well my families) story and I'll tell it when I feel like it.  For now, here's to the month of May.  Which has been filled with a lot of "normal"'s been amazing.

Emmy has spent lots of time washing her hands.  It's a little out of control.  Luckily, her Aunt Amanda is patient.  I think she washed her hands for about 15 minutes when this pic was taken.

Em also had her annual cardiology visit.  Which went great!  There have been no changes since last year, and we love our new pediatric cardiologist, which is good because we are now in a long term relationship with him. The visit was encouraging and definitely more fun than last years visit. Some of that is because G spun Em around on the doctors stool for an extended period of time.   

Other "normal" things we  have been doing.  Washing cars on Sunday afternoon.  And loving it.  Em really got into helping.  She also got really into washing her whole body with the dirty water.

We celebrated Mother's day.  Watching my kids with my super hot husband is the best gift ever.  Evan slept through most of it....and he looked so cute doing it.

Em refused to take a picture with me because she was too busy trying to jump off the bridge.

We have enjoyed more than one hail storm.  I kind of think they are awesome

G and I have both been able to spend some amazing and much needed time with our friends. We are beyond blessed by the community we have here.  Some of my girlfriends and I went to Design With Wine a few weeks ago. If you live in the area or are ever visiting it is a MUST DO thing. So so so much fun.  I'm read to go again.  G got to go to the shooting range with some friends last week....he loved every minute of it.

Emerson turned 2!  What the heck!  She had two parties, neither of which were well captured on camera.   Part of that is due to the fact that she bit one of her friends five minutes into her "friend party".  It's her party and she'll bite you if she wants to.  Ugh. I got on a baking kick and made the cake for the family party and made cake pops for the friend party.  No pictures of the cake pops, which is sad because they were crazy cute.

And we have spent TONS of time outside playing with the McCall kids.  The water spot on this pic is because Bryson had just sprayed me with the hose (which is also why H.C. is sobbing in this pic).

Little Hannah Claire, beyond precious.

And last but not least, we have spent the month of May falling even deeper in love with this little guy.  His cuteness is overwhelming and is only surpassed by his sweet, fun loving nature.  He is a little wild but it is fun.  Emmy constantly says, "Evan's crazy." She is correct.  But look at him....

Ok, it's now 3am, I've done a load of laundry, and it's time to put the clean sheets back on the bed...and attempt to get this little girl back to bed.  Which could be challenging since she is eating goldfish and watching can I tear her away from her 2 favorite things??? 

Eventually I will get around to telling the story of how we got back to Greenville, but only eventually.  We are moving into some permanent housing next week. Since our stuff has been in storage for 2 years, it should be exciting (and nasty at the same time because it is probably really dirty).  So, we will be abandonment begins again now.
