Some cute photos and stories about my little Peanut.

Notice her pretty pink sparkle shoes? She LOVES them and insists on wearing them whenever she can.. yes.. even to the park to play! (You can click on the pictures to make them bigger)

Is she REALLY wearing a winter hat in September, you ask? Yes, she is... it was a tad bit on the chilly side that afternoon.

She's got a cold and so of course, I let her sleep in bed cuddled up with me! Isn't she so precious?

Hug them as much as you can, call them and see them whenever you have a free moment, and ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS tell them you love them.

You never know when they will be gone.

We are sending enormous amounts of love to a special family we care for dearly.

It was a beautiful day for T-Ball! Sophia and I enjoyed sitting in the beautiful, lush, GREEN grass!

She was having fun running around
Wesley getting instruction from one of his coaches

This shot just melts my heart... Michael is one of the coaches... and here he is bending down giving words of advice to Wesley. It doesn't get better than this, folks.
Sophia playing around in the car while we waited for the boys to get in
I had to post this... this is after her bath tonight. She's so stinkin' cute!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Per the request of my family - here are some more pictures of our cozy new home!

Our bedroom. I went with gold, brown, and a really beautiful blue steel color... it came together so nicely.

Bathroom #1

A table near our entry way - yes, I have already decorated for fall!
Our living room, all decked out and ready for fall and all the fun things that come with it!
Down the hallway to the left is the laundry room, then Wesley's room, then straight ahead is the bathroom, then our bedroom. We love the layout!

Our little patio

So.. I have been going nuts with Wesley throwing his towel on the floor, so I hung two hooks at his level behind his bedroom door, and now he can hang his towel AND his robe!
Wesley made us write down the rules for his room :
Bathroom #2

Sophia's room

My girlfriend Carlie made me this "rag rope" and I attached some ribbon to it and hang Sophia's bows/flowers for her hair from it. So handy and so cute!
