Jude going 2!

video
Here is Jude getting a hit down 3rd base line. He runs so hard and a lot of times with his tongue out! Every time he gets to touch home plate he thinks it's a home run. Go Jude Go! Now if we could only get him to quit grabbing himself like he has to go to the bathroom.

Adam Hitting & Running

videoAdam is the last batter for his team, and in tee-ball the other team must throw the ball home to get him out. So, after Adam hits the ball his job is to run as fast as he can around the bases and beat the ball home. If you know Adam, running as fast as he can is one of his favorite things to do, and he does it well! Watch...

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!





I've been meaning to get these day time photo's of the boys playing ball! Jude is the furthest one back in his picture. He play's left center, but he really covers most of the outfield. When that ball is hit into the outfield Jude takes off after it and usually beats all the other outfielders to the ball. He has the best arm too so when he gets the ball it will make it into the infield. Adam has played pitcher most of the time, but he has also got a turn at 3rd and 2nd base. He's doing a good job at running after the ball and then throwing it to first. He ran at a guy running home from third one game and scared him back to third. They are both learning more and more each game. We've got games Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday this week!

Happy Birthday Krimson!



Our sweet, independent Krimson Leigh is 3 today! She has been telling everyone and has been so excited! We have been running around today going to a baseball game and CR in the park. We fit cake and ice cream in between the two. Krimson got so wore out and went to bed at 6:30 pm. I can't believe it's been 3 years ago now since we first met Krimson girl! We love you Krimson Leigh and our family is so blessed to have you!

Down by the Cool of the Pool





What can I say about the weather this week in West Monroe but BEAUTIFUL! We've played in our little pool almost every day this week. The kids have loved it! I'm sure they will be tired of our little pool by the end of the month and then we'll have to make visits to our friends bigger pools. But, until then we'll keep having fun down by the cool of our pool!!!
P.S. Yes, Krimson has a huge knot on her head from falling off the monkey bars at the park on Tuesday.

Feeding the Goats


I forgot to add this picture of Mary Dugger and Krimson feeding Grandma and Big Daddy's newest Kid. Lucy is about a month old and Krimson had a lot of fun playing mommy to her. Krimson got to feed her twice.

Good Times in Searcy








We headed to Searcy last Thursday and got to see my Grandmother. This was her first time to meet Eden! We had a great time playing at the land with Great Grandma, cousins, Grandparents, and aunts and uncles! Mom and Dad's cat had a kitten 2 weeks ago and Krimson had fun holding it. Adam enjoyed driving the go-cart. Jude played so hard that the last day he was a zombie (also Marc as you can tell from the picture). M-M Watson made a special trip to run a 1/2 marathon with me! It was a great run and we had lots of support from my family the whole way. Angie ran around 3 miles with us, maybe more, and they all gave water and Gatorade 4 times through out the race. After we ran through the t.p. dad had metals for us and Marc had flowers, bananas, and Gatorade. Thanks Everyone! We celebrated Krimson's 3rd birthday with a thumbalina cake and she was so excited. And, I'm glad we got a 4 generations picture with my Grandma Mary! There was never a dull moment.

New Fort

The boys and Krimson spent most of yesterday afternoon coloring the fort with calk. They were under Adam's supervision and they worked long and hard. They were very proud and Adam and Jude took 4 of the 5 pictures. I'll have to say it looks quit nice! If anyone is looking for a fort makeover give us a call!

Eggs, Eggs, Eggs





We dyed eggs last night and it was crazy fun! Everyone wanted to try all kinds of colors and put their hands in all of the dye. (then I had to tell Marc it was just for the kids...just kidding) This morning they loved looking over their creations. Eden was excited that we let her touch them. We also went ahead and hunted for eggs today too! It hasn't lots it's fun! All three older kiddos got after it and were so excited to look inside and see what was in the eggs. I didn't put any of those pictures on the blog because as most of you know 1/2 my kids were just in their underwear. I just went with the close ups...you are welcome.

Bowling





We did $5 all day bowling today and what a blast, well for the boys. Eden slept and Krimson was done 1/2 thru the first game, but the boys didn't want to stop. If we had planned things out better we should have drove both cars, but it was a fun family day. Adam ended up killing my score and Jude pulled spares out of his...? I don't know whose kids these are, but I sure do have fun playing with them!

Baseball Tonight




The boys started their baseball season tonight! They had so much fun! I'll get a picture with them together in their uniforms Saturday. This first game was a night game so I couldn't get Jude in the outfield. More pictures soon!!

Sad Good-bye



I will never forget this image...Jude and Krimson came walking in the house this morning with Jude's arm around Krimson and Krimson carrying her baby. Jude was keeping his eyes on Krimson as she said, "Mommy, Leopard bit my baby." I look at the baby and my heart went out to Krimson (as Jude's was). Krimson had a sad, sad face and you could tell her world just got rocked. We all hugged Krimson and the baby. For the next 2 hours all Krimson could do was talk about her baby. This baby has gotten a lot of love from Krimson since she was 1. Baby was a birthday gift from Grandma Vicki and baby stole Krimson's heart the minute she saw her. (The first picture was on Krimson's first birthday.) Well, Krimson's birthday is at the end of this month, so Marc and I decided that an early birthday present was in order for today. So, Jude, Eden, Krimson, and I went to Toys R Us and Krimson picked out a new baby. Her new baby, named Eden, came with a car seat too and so we buckled her next to Krimson on the way home. When we got home we said our final good-byes to baby and threw her away (Marc suggested to bury her next to brownie, but I thought that was a little much). It was a good two years with this precious baby and now we look forward to the years to come with our new little "Eden".
