Anderson is 7!

Wow...crazy that our baby is already 7!  He was so excited for his birthday.  He picked out brownies for his birthday 'cake' and helped make them.

He got to open some of his gifts before school.  We think he had snooped a little in the closet.  On Tuesday, he told his piano teacher that he was getting a tablet and he knew it because he saw the box in his mom's closet....must be time for a new hiding spot!

 He is a great actor!

 It took a lot of huffs and puffs to get all 7 candles blown out!

Happy 7th Birthday, sweet Anderson.  We love you so much.  What an incredible blessing you are to our family.  You have an awesome personality and sense of humor.  You love God and your family so much.  You give wonderful hugs and have a sweet tender spirit.  You are a friend to everyone.  We can't wait to see the plans God has in store for you...just don't grow up too fast on us!

Aaron did work for some friends for church.  The family went with him to pick up ladders over the weekend.  Anderson was smitten with Sunny.  What a sweet old girl.

Anderson's rendition of Bob Sacramento...

Aaron's aunt posted a throwback pic on FB.  We happened to see Madelyn walking into school that morning and snapped a current pic.

Brace Face!

Owen grew up about 2 years in an hour when he got his first set of braces on...such a handsome boy!

Pillow Sandwich

Our kids have the BEST Daddy!  They love wrestling with him, and even when he is bone tired and sore from a long day...he still wrestles and makes time to play with them.

He Is Risen

We are so thankful for Easter and the resurrection of our Savior.

We also enjoy a visit from the EB.

Not many pictures of Anderson since he came downstairs in his birthday suit :)

Odds and Ends

I noticed Owen's light was still on after he was supposed to have turned it out and gone to sleep.  As I walked into his room to correct him, I found out why his light was still on.

Papa picked out the perfect Bible covers for the kids...camo with lots of pockets!

Spring 2016 School Pictures

Owen was absent on spring picture day...but Anderson took some good ones.  He picked out the bow tie all by himself (these guys are like their daddy...they love to dress up).

1st Grade Chapel Award

It was Anderson's turn for the first grade chapel award.  I always love to hear what the teachers write for the kids when they get their awards.

 Anderson does too...he's reading away at what Mrs. H wrote for him.

Sweet doggie!

A Walk at the Lake

We took advantage of a beautiful spring day and took Steel on an adventure at a nearby lake.  He had a blast and we all got some energy out.

 Anderson and his wooden bazooka.



Steel all tuckered out on the ride home.

A picture of Anderson's sweet are Anderson and Riley with her arm around him?!

We loaded the kids up on sweetness (daddy got a Krispy Kreme craving).  And Anderson conked out on the way home.  The boy sure is sweet when he's asleep (and most of the time when he is awake).

See what I mean?

 A lot of mischief in that sweet little face!

Sweet buddies
