King SIngers Program

Brady started crying when he noticed ALL the people staring @ him :( Though he didn't cry @ his school program??? I think it had been a long day of swimming and playing and he was tired. Makayla ran over to him held his hand tried to get him to smile while Gabriel kept telling him to be brave :) I am so happy Brady already has good Christian friends watching out for him!!

Gabriel had NO problem singing!!! Which I knew he wouldn't...he sings all the time. If anyone reading this doesn't know Gabriel he is my best friend's lil boy who is staying with us for a lil while his parents are in Ukraine adopting the cute lil fellow you see to the right on my blog :)

Gabriel did ALL the motions and had a good ol' time! The only problem were the girls that were standing in front of Gabriel and Brady...they kept covering them up so it was hard to get pics...I think it should be illegal for a lil girl to wear a bow that big LOL just kidding!

Brady started to warm up after a lil while...but instead of singing...

...he started playing peek a boo with me...yes OUT LOUD! :) He'd look at me in the audience and say, "Peek a boo" over and over LOL I loved it!!!
This is Makayla & Brady...she LOVES him to death!!! She is definitely an Alpha-Female and makes sure NO ONE messes with her Brady LOL

Makayla, gabriel & Brady were known as the "3 Musketeers" by their King Singers teachers :)

After the program we came home and the boys decided to play outside and take turns pushing Rylan

It was an AWESOME and HILARIOUS evening!!!

Slip & Slide Fun!

I bought a slip & slide from Walmart the other day...only $5!!!!! The kids enjoyed soooo much and cant wait til it warms up again so they can do it some more!

Rylan had a blast!

Here comes Gabriel!

Brady slid right off & into some mud!

Britany is a big kid!!

Gabriel wasn't so sure about it.

Nothing like a nice warm bubble bath to wash away the mud & grass! :)

A Busy May! Pics included :)

Sorry it has been a while since I have written but it has but one CRAZY, BUSY, HECTIC month!!! I help with a ministry at church that keeps up with all the pregnant ladies in our church and 4 of mine gave birth within 2 weeks! Plus I also teach Sunday School, had all the things for Brady's end of year stuff at preschool, plus his T-ball, my niece is graduating and she made it to State for pole vaulting& we gave her a graduation party, Rylan has had a double ear infection for about 2 months but FINALLY got tubes...and now my friend's boys are staying with us while she is in Ukraine....and this is all on top of my daily duties as wife and mommy!!! Now please dont think I am complaining...I love my life...I just need to take a breath! haha! I havent been this busy in a while but at least all of this busyness is due to happy things and not bad things! :) I choose to see the silver lining! The only dark cloud is my eating :( I had been doing awesome but with all this going on I dropped the ball and gained 4 lbs back :( I was VERY self-loathing and beating myself up, but decided to start being more self-loveing and give myself a break. Below are some pictures from most of the events of May...and to think the month is only half begun LOL :)

These are from Britany's Baccalaurette Service @ Church. Look how pretty she is!

These are of Brady's End of Year Party & School Program...yes I know...he is a doll! :)

The 1st pic is w/Mrs. Donna, Brady's teacher, the 2nd is w/Mrs. Jayna, the director, who Brady greated every morning pretending to be asleep in the car as she tried to get him out & then "scared" her :)
