I'm 2!

Aunt B and Kate

Jackson brought his chair down to sit with Kate;)

Kate opening her card from Nanna and Poppa while we are skyping with them!

New clips from Aunt B

Totally mesmorized by her candles!

I love how Kate is eyeing her cake and not the camera! Gotta love it!

Having a little chick fil a and cupcakes at the mall

Jackson and Kate checking out the money in the fountain

Kate Elizabeth turned 2 on April 20th! We celebrated by having a few friends meet us at the mall for lunch and play, we had a family party at home and then she and Jackson went to Lufkin with the Grandparents for a long weekend and celebrated once again with them! We like to drag out our celebrations as long as possible;) We love birthdays!!
And as I say every year, I can't believe she's growing so fast! Has it really been 2 years since she was born!? She is so much fun and we absolutely are in love with this sweet girl!
Kate is talking so much and having conversations with us! Sometimes we don't understand everything she's saying, but we go right along with it;) Kate loves to play and be silly with her big brother Jackson, but occassionally (well maybe "often") is very vocal about getting her way when he's involved. But she loves to learn from him and they truly are best buds at this stage in life! I pray that only deepens as they get older.
She loves to sing and requests specific songs when in the car. I love that I have a child who loves to sing. I love to sing too, although she often asks me not to sing with her;) Justin and Jackson do not have this same love, so at least she does!
We can't wait to see the things she learns and discovers this year! We pray that she will learn to love the Lord her God with all her heart, soul, strength and mind and that she will only seek the desires of Him and obedience to Him throughout her life. We love you Kay Kay!

Soccer Parties!

Coach Scott and Jackson shooting some nerf guns
The boys

A couple of cheerleaders!

The Wolverine team does it right! We partied at Chuck E Cheese and then another trophy party at the Rogers' house to end the season! The boys were so excited to get their first soccer trophies! Jackson carries his around the house and is sleeping with it;) He's already looking forward to another soccer season! Good times!

Great Wolf Lodge

The hotel has a fun story time at night with this wolf.
Jackson and Brinley on their bunk beds!

Jackson overlooking the waterpark from the hotel lobby! He was SO excited!

Jackson and I spent a night with some sweet friends at Great Wolf Lodge! It was fun to be with our oldest kiddos and spend some one on one time with them. The hotel and waterpark were a lot of fun and very entertaining for our kiddos!

Happy Easter (a little late)

i just like this picture:)

Cousin Gavin

Attempting to get a cousin picture, but Gavin was ready to hunt some eggs;)

My sweet babies!
Going to church

Having some Easter fun at Pawpaw Mac's house!

We spent Easter in Lufkin this year! A trip complete with egg dying, egg hunting, family time and church! Jackson made Resurrection eggs at CLC and made sure that he told the story of Easter to everyone in the family! It kind of surprised me a bit, because he's usually not one to have all eyes on him. So cute to listen to!

Every time we turned around, Kate had chocolate drooling out of her mouth! I tried to hide the candy after the initial Easter morning candy gorge, but that didn't stop her!
