West Virginia Snow!!!

 Last weekend the kids and I went to Craigsville West Virginia with Josh's mom to visit her brothers. While we were there it snowed!!! I had checked the weather before we left and I knew there was a chance it was going to snow but I really didn't think it would happen. Boy was I wrong. It snowed about 3 inches on Sunday night! I was so disappointed I didn't bring the kid's snow clothes (since they didn't even get to use them this year!)   Oh well...we just had to piece some outfits together lol

Somebody was excited! :)

 We bundled Owen up the best we could and sat him in a little sled that Uncle Greg and Aunt Ina had
He was kind of sleepy lol
But he still managed to have some fun :)

Rolling up snowballs to build a snowman :) 

 Putting on the eyes

 Chasing Grammy with a snowball
 So much fun!

 Kicking down Frosty lol

 I can't believe we got to enjoy some snow this year!

Spring Mini

Last Saturday I took the kids to get some Spring pictures done. The same lady that did our Christmas pictures was having another mini session and I jumped at the opportunity to dress the kids up and get some "Easter" pictures taken :) She took all of these in 20 minutes! I thought they turned out so cute! :)

A little gardening...a little teething

The kids and I had a lot of fun hanging outside the other day. It was a beautiful day and we spread out a blanket and played for a little while and then Lucy and I planted some flowers. Poor Owen is cutting all four teeth on top so I gave him this"popsicle" with a frozen banana in it to numb his gums. He loved it!

My sweet helper.

When I was putting the gardening tools away i saw this creepy bug on our shed door. I had to take a picture because I've never seen anything like it was weird looking lol
By the way don't let the above pictures fool you. This is how Owen is feeling most of the time these days. (notice his top teeth breaking through the gums?) He's been so pitiful...poor baby :(

Lucy's Birthday

I realize it's been over a month since Lucy's birthday party but I decided I would post a few pics. This year we thought it would be fun to take her to Wilderness at the Smokies and invite family to come along. We had a blast!
There was a wave pool, a surf rider, an indoor/outdoor hot tub, several really fun water slides and a couple kid areas.

 This was Owen's first time in a swimming pool. At this age Lucy loved the water! but Owen wasn't so sure lol. I think it might have been all the people and commotion. It was very loud in there :)
He did love Lucy's sharks though lol
On Saturday we had a birthday celebration
The birthday girl! :)
After having pizza and cake for lunch we went back to swim some more
 Hanging out while Ashley waited in line to do the Surf Rider
Sweet baby Owen :)
She did awesome! Way to go Aunt Boo! 

Happy Birthday to my sweet THREE! year old :)

I'll leave you with these comparison pics from her 3rd and 1st Birthday. I thought it was cool how similar they looked

Props to my friend Holly for taking this one...
