Could it be? 3?!

The brothers turned 3 yesterday!!! Wow! Can't believe it! We had a great day with just them. Ellie is still at my parents house and I enjoyed just 2 kids! We went swimming, ate pizza for dinner, then went to ice-cream, then went to toys-r-us. Although the baby stage is precious, sweet and tiring I am glad we are moving on to a new chapter in our book! Cooper & James, you came into our lives tiny and sweet and today you are growing boys full of light and love! Thank you for making me a mommy of twins! Who would have thought! Me, with twin boys??! You are awesome and bring so much joy to our lives. Happy Birthday!

Ellie's a 1st grader!

Well Ellie is officially done with Kindergarten! The kids were all excited for this day. Ellie was excited because she got to sing on stage. Let me tell you, Ellie on stage is a riot to watch. She becomes shall I say...Sharpay from High School Musical. Really, she is quite the performer. Comments like, "Is that your daughter?!" I am proud of her confidence and all that she has learned this year. Cooper is in the yellow. He is always ready. He is the first one up usually, wants to get dressed and ready for the day, and is always excited to go somewhere. James on the other hand, is usually the sleeper-inner, and the first thing he says when he wakes up is, "I want to eat." I loved this picture of them!

Here are some random pics, I have really been slacking on my blog! Cooper is driving the golf cart at Jacob's office. They have golf carts to get to and from places at his storage unit/office. They look so "golferish". Cousin William and Ellie are both missing their top two teeth! How cute! Ellie talks a little funny, and I love listening to her. We went to this town called "Exeter" near Visalia where Jacob grew up. We went with his sister Missy and family and his parents. It is a great place for pics! I am taking the kids back there and doing a photo shoot. Really cute town. They have all these murals painted on the walls. The kids loved looking at these, and posing in front of them. Can you see Ellie? Yeah she is quite the poser. Anyhow, good times, we had fun. School's out for Summer this Friday! Woohooo!!

Summer is here?!

Well Ellie has her last week of school next week! I will have a first grader! Aughhh! Weather has been hot, hotter, cool, cooler. So, not quite summer yet, but love this time of year! I have my clothes line out, my electric bill was $35 last month. Seriously. Jacob took this sweet picture of an amaryllis in our backyard. Love it! And...my sis-in-law had her 6th baby....a girl! For those of you who know "Buffy" she has 5 boys, and now has a sweet little girl named Elise. The kids love holding her especially Ellie. So I think we are up to 18 grandkids on Jacob's side. Wow.
