Circus and Dedication

Those 2 words aren't usually said in the same context...I guess, unless you are a clown! But, this weekend we did them both! Saturday, KK & Papa took us to the circus in Columbus. It was so much fun, and the boys really enjoyed the show (and so did I)!

Sunday we had Tanner's Baby Dedication at Church. It was so funny, because Tanner cried the entire time...and she never cries!!! But, it was definitely memorable and we were so blessed to spend time with our family after the service.

And, a special thank you to Nana for making Tanner's gorgeous dress!

Mayhem, Sweetness, and the Princess

Well, I've got it...I've officially figured out the best way to describe Tristan in all of his glory! Meet "Mayhem!"

I absolutely love those commercials, and the other day it just hit me...that's my Tristan! He is absolutely hilarious, a total mess, and quite hard to control:

This was after about an hour of trying to get him to stay in his bed! Not sure if this is a "win" for me, or for him?! (And, yes those are Christmas pj's in February!)

After this getting out of bed fighting has gotten progressively worse over the last few nights, TJ said he would sleep with Tristan to help him feel better! And, sweetest.son.ever.

And, Princess Tanner is growing up so fast! She is already 4 months old and is such a doll. We are really enjoying her!

My Loves

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, which I'm not a huge fan of, really. I mean, why do we need a day to show and tell those that we love how we feel about them? We should do that every day...theoretically, anyway! My mind is somewhere else today, worrying with things that I cannot control, or fix, or really even understand. Yet, I feel the need to express TODAY how blessed I feel to have such wonderful loves in my life.

I love this man. Those dimples. And, the amazing way he loves me and our wild bunch of kiddos.

TJ. I love these eyes. And, his magical imagination and playful spirit.

Tristan. I'm partial to dimples...and I love these too...and that fiery, feisty, stubborn temperament...hopefully one day it'll get you somewhere other than time-out!

Tanner. I love this infectious smile - it lights up a room. And her extremely pleasant, happy, go-with-the-flow disposition.

I am so very thankful that God has given me these precious blessings in my life. They all bring me so much joy and teach me new things about myself and make me want to be a better mother, wife, and friend. Happy Love Day!

And the Cherry on Top...

of our Sickness Sundae:

Now, I have pink eye!!! Surely this is the cherry on top, right?!
