her smile, her joy

I came home from a day of running around with G and found EG having her own quite time in the sun with snack. She seemed to be deep in thought.

But she wasn't thinking at all. She said she was watching the birdies.

& she began to giggle
& I couldnt' get enough of her smile
thinking about how happy she is and how secure she feels makes me smile too

I had to grab a photo of her in footed jammies

because having 3 other kids,

I know it won't be long when they are thing of the past

& she won't want to wear them because she'll think they are for babies

even though she'll always be my baby...

drive by post of everything

Because I've got mad photography skills, all these photos are off my iPhone....cause I suck like that. I'm at work, bored, because it's Columbus day and because the government is on shut down, I have nothing to do...which leaves me to wonder why I'm here...but I digress.

So in a great attempt at keeping this sluggish blog rolling along, I'll give you 6 months of photos in one post, super speed style. I should be awarded a medal for my effort, after all, I could be on Pinterest.

I darkened my hair, not sure what to do with it anymore. J and I were going to a Falc0ns game. On a side note: my hips are not really that big...that's my lil' Louis sling under my sweater. A pic that I snapped of Daddy and EG going to church this past weekend. We were waiting for the boys to stop fighting as to where they were going to sit in the car. Seriously?
Snapped this pic this morning of EG of her sassy boots and her sassy hand me down clothes from sweet girl Colleen. Seriously don't know where she finds this adorable stuff.

This is normally the pictures I get of EG. She always turns her head when I whip out the camera or the phone. I just have to keep snapping cause she will look back and laugh, like she pulled one over on me. I'd really like these boots in my size! So sassy.

One day, not to long ago, my girlfriend and I blew off all responsibility and spent the day doing fun things. Like shopping.

and drinking a few bottles of champagne before 5.

& enjoying a nice girly lunch out on a gorgeous fall Georgia day. was so fun, call it a mental health day.

Not sure I mentioned on this blog, but my son is driving now. Scream.

We've had a few close calls, but overall, he's a pretty good driver. I'm just a nervous passenger.

We've been keeping very busy with Buckeye football, which isn't as fun anymore without my Buckeye peeps in paradise....sigh...

They got this EG this outfit before she even came home and it just now fits they can't see her in it this year.

W is playing baseball now. We are totally impressed with skill level of these youngsters compared to the level they played at in Florida. All I can say is baseball is serious business in this neck of the woods. W started out spending more time dancing and shaking his thing on the field. He went many games with not even a hit and then finally, daddy offered up a bribe as he was going to bat. He scored his first hit and the winning run of a tied up baseball game, which led to him receiving the game ball. His whole team was so excited for him. Since then, he's improved tremendously and if all else fails, we just bribe him with food. Fine parenting skills.

C has had several orchestra concerts this year and his fabulous grandparents came for one of them. He's quite musically talented. He is my creative kid!

EG helped me decorate for fall.

& she was so proud of herself.

However, I'm not getting the added bunny in the middle of her 'pumpkin patch'...

& that's just water she dumped down the front of her, not a stain.

W's speedo is neato! C&W did swim team and they both rocked it. I guess I shouldn't be shocked since they both grew up in the pool. C was very impressive.

EG is a book hoarder. She falls asleep every night after she's read about 234 books. She's in that bed, asleep, with all her books.

How about that! Do you feel all caught up?!?! I'll be back in 6 months, or maybe sooner....we shall see =0)
