I wanted to share these couple of pics of the girls and our family. I love Presley's smile so much and the one of the 2 girls is one of my favorite!
Look at those sweet cheeks!

Happy Anniversary!

Happy 6 year anniversary to the most wonderful man I know. I cannot believe that 6 years has gone by so fast and feel so blessed that our lives are so full of love. 6 years of so many eventful times....having 2 children, buying 2 houses, moving to a new city/state, job loss, new jobs, moving away from friends, making new friends, finding a wonderful church, date nights, and so many more. Through the ups and downs of day to day, there is no other place that I would rather be then with my man and our children.

In saying all of this, I am promising myself that we will never plan another anniversary trip again! This was the 2nd year in a row that our anniversary plans have been voided due to sick children. Last year Brooke had pneumonia and this year the strangest thing happened to Presley. We were planned to leave for Savannah, GA last Saturday morning to spend the night there. Friday night my Mom stayed at our house since we were getting up early on Saturday. At 3am on Friday night, Presley woke up hysterically crying and was having a hard time breathing. She had lots of mucus stuck in her throat and nothing we were doing was helping her. We jumped in the car and headed to the ER because she was having a tough time getting air. Of course by the time we got to the hospital she was smiling, cooing, and was in a great mood. We had her checked out anyway and everything was fine. They said it was just mucus that was stuck in her throat and to flush her with saline often. Even though we knew she was fine, we still couldn't leave her just thinking that it could happen again. SO...we ended up having a great day anyways. We left our house around 11am (without kids) and headed to the big restaurant festival downtown. We stayed there for about 4 hours and ate, drank, and had the best time!! Next we headed to a friends house to watch some football and then we went out for a fancy steak dinner at a restaurant we've been wanting to try. It was such a wonderful day together and it didn't even matter that we didn't leave town. We were just so excited to spend the day together.

These are some pictures that I took last week and some my Mom took this weekend.

The girls!

Dancing in the Rain

About a week ago we got a decent amount of rain. Brooke was so excited to get out and play in it one afternoon. It was so much fun watching her dance around having a blast!!
