Happy 4th Birthday Naomi!

Naomi wanted to have a "strawberry shortcake sprinkler" party....so that"s what we did.  I wouldn't recommend doing when your 8months pregnant...but she had a blast!

A Naomi update Naomi loves people, especially her family! Can play cars/trains with the best oof them but loves her girly toys too! She thinks she is the boss and loves calling the shots.  She misses her brother while he is in school...but calls her ballet class her school.  She loves ballet. She loves to eat(she is our meat eater)!  She is over 100% in height on the growth chart and 80% in weight!  She loves Sunday School and her Wednesday night journey group.  She loves to pray...but we are working on her content!  She is very affectionate and loving!

First days for Nathan and Naomi



 Nathan's first day of kindergarten!  He has done great  and loves his sweet teachers and classmates! 
 Naomi's first ballet class!  She calls it "her school" and is excited all week for her special girl time!  Thanks GiGi for making her dream come true!

Our Summer in pictures!

Our first beach trip of the summer....at a grad n career retreat in St. Simons, Ga. at memorial day...we did a joint retreat with some dear friends who work with singles in Augusta (the Wilkins)
Our second beach trip was to the PCA's General Assembly in Virginia Beach...i'm not sure where Nathan was. The kids had a blast....but i don't think i will do that kind of trip again with four small kids....we will have to take a 5 yr break or so b/4 i forget how hard that was!
On my birthday we got to visit with my childhood best-friend and her family at a lake about an hour away....all our kids are about the same age...her youngest was asleep i think.
One of our fun trips to Papa and Gigi's house....Nathan first large catch...he was thrilled!
This was actually late Spring...but the last time we have a picture of our dear friend Jackson! Our dear friends, the Dennis', moved in June to Nashville. Jackson was one of Nathan's first friends when we moved to macon..and his whole family became good friends for all of us!
Naomi and her sweet friends: Elcee and Kate!
Naomi's first haircut and our first fruit from our "garden"
Our last Beach trip... to Hammock Beach with the whole Ashley crew. It was sooooo fun and they were so generous to love on us and spoil us while we were there! I know there was plenty more fun adventures...but here are some highlights!
