Our Week In Pictures

Monday was Matt's Birthday! Happy Birthday handsome!! We are so blessed to have you in our lives!!! MoMo and Papa Ray were in town and volunteered to watch our sweet little ones so we could have a little date night!
So Matt and I went to a local italian place and ate more food than any two people should in one meal. It was really good! It was nice to have a dinner without worrying about cutting up the kid's food or rushing through just in case one starts to have a melt down and we need to leave. Don't get me wrong--I love those dinners with our little cuties too, but every once in a while a meal without them is nice too. Plus, they had a blast with MoMo and Papa Ray!
They had pizza and cupcakes!
Matt has wanted family pictures on our hall wall for a while now. So, with his birthday and all, I spent Tuesday afternoon putting pictures in the frames and hanging them on the wall. We LOVE how they turned out.
Since we have started hosting a small group in our home we decided to (finally) redecorate our living room. Again, we LOVE it. Wednesday night was our first small group and we had a great turn out and are so excited to have these couples in our lives!
Wednesday was spent cleaning house and running back and forth to the hospital any chance I had so I could meet this sweet little thing! Emerson Kate was 8 lbs 5 ounces and just perfect! Congratulations Syd and Tom! I think we all already love her!!
Thursday afternoon Lilly went in our closet and saw these shoes and got really excited and said, "I like these shoes!!" and then walked around the house in them all night long. So funny!
My sweet friend Amanda sent us some of the cutest little ice packs in the mail and Lilly and Reid think they are the best things ever (they are pretty awesome!). They are always getting into the freezer to get their "ice". Doesn't she look absolutely pitiful in this picture?? She is not hurt at all.
Friday we had play group (no pictures-boo) and then after naps the kids had a bath and got into jammies to get ready for Friday Night Out. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE my church for this marriage ministry???? I do!! So much!! Anyway, Lisa, I included this picture so you know that we care about our dental hygiene. (:
Captain Adorable! Yes, he is.
He even has a cape!
Our little angel. I fixed her hair and she said, "I need bow". Love my girly girl! Matt and I went to dinner with our friends Chris and Jenna to Shogun. It was yummy and we loved hanging out with them and just talking and laughing--such fun friends!
Today the weather is ah-mazing so we went to the park and had a little picnic.
I can't not laugh at this picture. This boy melts the heart!
Please note the cowgirl boots.

Had to go down on the tummy too! Oh, and yes, they are still in last nights jammies. I have no excuse.

I can't believe my BABY has the motor skills to climb this ladder!

She is saying, "I did it!" Great week! Hope you are having a great weekend and enjoying some nice weather too!
