Blogging Machine!

I am killing this blogging thing for August! I guess we've taken lots of pictures lately :) and even tho most of them are of nothing special, just every day life, I like having them documented. Last night at youth group, Chris had a questionnaire for the kids to fill out about their expectations for their future life so that they can begin to make choices so that their expectations will become reality at the appointed time. So, I was thinking about my life at their age and I don't know that I had any expectations really about what my life would look like but I don't know that it involved living in NC and being a stay-at-home mom of 3 kids. However, when I look at these pictures, I realize that there is no place in the world I would rather be than staying home every day with these 3 crazies!

He looks more sweet than crazy here, but trust me, there's another side :)

I was trying to get a picture of him in his "bob" shirt that I can put in the picture frame that his Grammie gave him for his birthday. I got a couple :)

We start them young helping out in the garden! Whether or not you like it, if you're going to eat it, you have to help tend it! and then get hosed off outside afterwards :)

Lately, we've spent time most days playing and singing. I love that right now Cadence is in this phase of life where she wants us to sing and she follows us. In fact that's exactly what she says "you yust sing Mommy and I'll follow you" so we sing and she plays :) But Caleb prefers for us to sing "bob" so we all sit down and go thru every Veggie Tale that I can think of - and a couple of extras too. Here is a VIDEO of us singing together.

Mr Cool

Cadence was so proud of herself this day. I was cooking dinner and Creed was ridiculously tired. So, she offered to hold him while I cooked. She's super helpful like that these days! So, they sat down at the computer together for her to hold Creed and play at the same time - she's not only helpful but a multi-tasker too! Well, within a few minutes he had fallen asleep on his sister and the look of pride on her face nearly made me weep. After I had taken some pictures of them together, I asked her if she wanted me to take him and lay him down but she said no that she would just hold him and keep playing - and she did for his entire nap! She's so big that I can't hardly stand it.

This might be one of my favorite representations of summer at this point. Because everyone looks better in a pair of Dora Goggles :)

Oh. My. Stars.

Can you PLEASE blog like this a couple of times a week? It makes being so far away so much easier.

I love how Creed's bald / blonde head shines in those pictures of you playing and singing together. I love that you're such a cool mom that you sit down and play and sing like that. I love that Cadence is (I think) wearing her Big Sister shirt while holding her sleeping brother.

I'm so glad you took those pictures of Creed in your garden.

And Caleb in those goggles... adorable. Stinkin' adorable.

(One last thought - I'm glad Cora hasn't made her appearance yet today because it means you've had time for blogging!)
