The Backyard....DAY 9 took a while, but we finally got some sod! We spread seed first, but with all the rain we have had lately it was washing away and the birds were enjoying what was left. So, Saturday Marc, John, David, Adam, Krimson, and I laid some sod. It was fun to watch our dirt backyard turn into grass instantly!

For now we just got 3 pallets and put the grass where we really needed it and we are letting the spots where the seed had taken root grow into the sod. So, right now we are watering, watering, and watering some more!! Thank You Lord!!!!! We will have a backyard to play in this summer :)

Happy Birthday Adam!

9!! I can't believe Adam is 9!! I guess I'll be say this every year, but I am amazed every year how big my kids are getting. Adam had a nerf gun war birthday this year and it was a BLAST!!!!! We had about 16 kids and 8 parents playing! It was kids against adults (or re-dults as Adam would say)! The battles were good and we all agreed we wanted to do it again next year!!

Here is the awesome cake that Melissa Shelby made for the party. Once again, it was perfect!!

Here are the kids lining up to shoot a few dads!! Not sure how much fun the dads had, but the kids really enjoyed it!!
Happy Birthday Adam!! 8 was an amazing year and I'm excited to see what 9 brings!!!

Happy Birthday Krimson!

Krimson's birthday this year got spread out over a week!! It started with her friends party at Kiroli park on Good Friday!! It was a beautiful day and we had a Tinkerbell party!
Then we headed to Searcy for Easter and celebrated with Grandma and Big Daddy, and all the Searcy cousins!
OUR plans were to be home for her birthday, but Monday night our van was hit in the storms that passed over Little Rock. So, we spent the night in Little Rock. Krimson's actual birthday was spent in the hotel and van driving home to West Monroe. We picked up some cupcakes in Sheridan to celebrate the actual day!
Grandma Vicki was waiting for us at the house when we got to Home and she bought Krimson a princess cake to celebrate too!!!
Things were crazy this year, but it was fun celebrating Krimson ALL week long! What a bright light she brings to our family. I love what a sweet big sister she is to Eden. She is so smart and learns so much from her big brothers! I wouldn't change you Krimson Leigh for anything. She is her own person and I can't wait to see that develop!! I LOVE YOU Krimson! Happy Birthday!!
