Following the Leader. . .

Today Stockton got to play with his cousin, Sydney, at my mother's house. He copied her every move!! He copied what she did with toys, how she put her hands, and even the things she said. This picture is so cute because you can see how he watches her to see what she's going to do next. I love to see him have a good relationship with his cousins!!

Easter Sunday

Easter Sunday was so much fun! We had a huge meal with all the family and the kids got to go on an Easter Egg Hunt! All the eggs are filled with money, candy, or a paper that says 'pick a prize' Each kid leaves with 6 or 7 new toys. They love the hunt and this year Stockton understood the concept and was going after those eggs!!
My parents are the cutest!!
Warren and Auntie Theresa cutting turkey and ham...Yummy!

My Aunt Theresa and Uncle Wayne have a gorgeous backyard! It is perfect for any occasion! This occasion was the annual Easter Egg Hunt. It was another success!

Kyler was the MC of the Hunt. He started it with his horn and throughout the Hunt gave the kids hints on where to find the eggs.
My little man is so handsome! I loved watching him participate!
After the hunt, everyone gathers on the lawn to search through their eggs and pick their prizes!

Stockton thought it was so fun to pick the little toys, candy and money out of the eggs.Ally showing off all the eggs she found.
Talon and Jenny faced off... Jenny with silly string and Talon with a water gun - easily loaded in the river.

When Jenny attacked Talon, it became an all-out war. The kids ended up soaked! Fun, Fun!
I love my sister's stance to douse her nephew in silly string!!

LOVE Jenny's face and actions as she runs from Talon's water gun!! Hilarious!

Happy Birthday, Amy!!!

This weekend we celebrated my sister's 34th birthday. I cannot believe how fast time goes by. I still remember being a teenager hanging out with her, wanting to be like her, and tagging along with her and her friends. We had a great party. Our entire family went to see Monsters vs. Aliens, which was hilarious, then we went to Iggy's Sports Bar for dinner. It was a great celebration of the best sister, mother, and daughter ever! My sister, Amy, is the best person I have ever met. She is constantly thinking of others, and would do anything for anyone. I can only hope I can be half the fabulous person she is!! I love you, Amy!!


A sister is someone who loves you from the heart,
No matter how much you argue you cannot be drawn apart.
She is a joy that cannot be taken away,
Once she enters your life, she is there to stay.

A friend who helps you through difficult times,
Her comforting words are worth much more than dimes.
A partner who fills your life with laughs and smile,
These memories last for miles and miles.

When she is by your side, the world is filled with life,
When she is not around, your days are full of strife.
A sister is a blessing, who fills your heart with love,
She flies with you in life with the beauty of a dove.

A companion to whom you can express your feelings,
She doesn’t let you get bored at family dealings.
Whether you are having your ups or downs,
She always helps you with a smile and never frowns.

With a sister you cannot have a grudge,
She is as sweet as chocolate and as smooth as fudge.
Having a sister is not just a trend,
It is knowing you can always turn to her, your best friend.
