Random photos by Caleb

My mommy lets me play with her camera sometimes and here are some pictures that I took.
I love my baby brother's feet so I took a picture of them!
"Mommy, Asher's eating my Iron Man's leg!!!" Asher, I'm going to show mommy this picture!

She's coming and you're going to be in trouble!!!

You can run but you can't hide!!!!

Ssshhhh.......Daddy doesn't know I'm taking his picture.......

.....uh........oh........I woke him up!!!!
My silly daddy! I wonder if he knows about the other pictures I took of him?
Is this thing working???
My favorite show saying...........

Have a great day!

Summer Ingenuity!

On the way home from church Sunday afternoon, the kids started talking about playing in the water. Emma and Dougie are good sports and will even play with Caleb in his little pool. They began talking about different things they could do. After lunch, they quickly changed their clothes and headed outside. I was cleaning up and putting Asher down for his nap and when I finally made it outside, this is what I found!
With Daddy's help, they had hooked the hose above the slide, put the pool under the slide and created their very own water slide!

And since they had the nozzle on the hose, they could change the way the spray came out. Summer ingenuity leads to summer memories!

Fun at the Farm

A few weeks ago, my cousin's son graduated from high school. It gave us the chance to see some family and spend some time at the farm. The ceremony was Sat. morning and was limited so we didn't attend but we hung out at the farm. Steven cut a little grass using the tractor and of course, Caleb had to ride along with him.
I love Caleb's expression, pure joy!

Asher didn't ride but he liked sitting with daddy on the tractor.

The graduation party was late on Saturday afternoon so we got some of the cousins together to swim at my aunt and uncle's house. They had an absolute blast.
The boys spent most of the time playing catch the ball as you jump off the diving board! Boys will be boys!Haven fell in love with Asher. She stayed by him during the whole party!

These are the wild boys!

Their birthdays range from 12/99 to 2/01 so they're all
very close in age and have a great time being together!

I just realized I didn't even get a picture of the graduate. oops!

The news....

I'm going to be an aunt again!!!
My sister, Laura is expecting her 2nd child in late January.
To say we're a little excited is a huge understatement.
Asher's just glad that he'll now have a cousin to grow up with and someone to exchange gifts with at Christmas!

Congrats to Laura, Phil and Chaz-man!
We love y'all and can't wait to meet this little one!

Helllllooooo Summer

Well Summer is here and we've been soooo lazy this week!

So let me catch you up on what's going on in our lives, I'm sure you're so excited.
Dougie finished his baseball season! They were 9 and 3! woo-hoo

Dougie was selected for All-Stars, so they've been practicing a lot to get ready. And although I've always vowed that I wouldn't let my child be sucked into the black hole that takes the lazy days of summer and morphs it into a baseball tournament (aka travel ball), we've given in this year. (I heard that! You just called me a sucka!) The coach promised that we would only play one tournament a month, and I'm going to hold him to it! :) Our travel team coach is also the coach for our All-Star team, which is really nice because he's holding off on tourneys until A.S. are done. whew!
Emma's getting ready for cheer leading camp. She's a little bummed because in years past they've attended camp in Jekyll Island. But this year they're going to a college in middle Ga.! :( My girl loves the beach as much as her momma but she can't complain, she's going to get to be at the beach 2 weeks straight in July. One week with her dad and the other with us!
Caleb and Asher are doing great. They are both growing so much. Caleb continues to crack us up with the things he says. Yesterday he told me he didn't feel well, when I asked what was wrong, he said, "my throat's coming back." Last week Steven was preaching a revival at the church where his brother is pastor. On the way to church one evening, Caleb said, "we have to go pass the bible to get there." Steven and I were completely stumped. When turning onto the street that the church was located on, Caleb pointed to the church's sign and said, "see, we have to go pass the bible." There was a bible on the church's sign!
Asher is crawling all over now. And more than once, we've had to do a house search to find him. He's pulling up on things to his knees but won't stand up yet. He finally has a 3rd tooth coming in. But the lack of teeth hasn't affected his eating habits. He gave up baby food several weeks ago. He's been very picking lately, and kind of fussy so I think he must be getting some more teeth.
I got a phone call today with some VERY exciting news (no, I'm not pregnant!) but I can't share just yet.
Hope you're enjoying your summer!
Eat some ice cream!!!
