Wow, does a year "fly" by fast! Beau Michael was 1 1/2 last summer when we visited the airport during the Art & Air Festival, and this year he is 2 1/2. He didn't seem so awstruck this year as last, but nonetheless, he LOVED seeing the "ay-pane's" flying above, taking off, and landing. And he just could not believe it when he could actually touch them! He was kinda scared to, like he thought someone would come walking up and say, "DON'T TOUCH THAT!" or something. But, he did it anyway. I tried to get him to smile, but he was so serious! He's growing up way to fast!

Family Photo

Just us! Well, atleast 5 of us. Grace was with my sister getting school supplies, and we took a drive up to my SIL house to visit. My MIL took this picture for us. I hate how fat I look, but overall, the picture is a good one, and the first one we have of Jack and I with the kids.

Sweet Leah Dee when she first came home!

Little Leah Lou posing pretty.
From this Sweet Baby Boy

To this most Handome Little Man!

Pretty Pretty Princess

Leah has started to love playing dress up! She looks for Drew's 'pretties' and puts them all on as she finds them, be it neclaces, swim suits, panties, anything she can put over her head or on her arm! Just yesterday morning as I put her into the high chair to eat breakfast, she saw the dress-up neclaces from the night before on her tray and would not eat before she put them on. So...she sat in the high chair eating left over cold pizza in her 'pretties'!

My Little Strawberry Patch Prince

Beau Michael has begun helping me with the strawberry patch. Every day he says, "Let's check the stawberries Mom!" He has learned how to pick the right ones, only the red ones I keep telling him. He now does quite well at only picking ripe ones. He stands in the middle of the patch, barefoot, looking very closely at the strawberry bushes for the red ones. He looks ever so carefully. It is so cute to watch him!
