Don't you just love bubbles? So does Dawson! I can't believe Christmas is almost here. I have so much to post before Christmas comes. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Disneyland, oh man I need to get to blogging more. Oh well, I will get caught up soon,...I hope :)
Grandparents Day was September 13th, (wouldn't have known, but that is what the calendar said :) I feel so blessed to live near my mom and dad. We love them so much. They watch our kids, let us hang out and play the Wii, feed us great food, and they are great examples to all of us! And we can't wait for Grandma Wilkins to stay out here in January. We are excited to really bond with our "Grandma from Missouri".
My boys are just too awesome! I can't believe I have a 5th, 3rd, and 1st grader. All at the same school for just one more year. They are such amazing students. All of their teachers are so impressed with each of them. I am too. I love you boys. Keep up the great work!
One year OLDER and WISER too! Happy Birthday Sweetie! (in case you can't count the candles,...he's 33 :) I am so thankful to have such a great husband. Lately I have had person after person telling me how thoughtful Eric is, and it is so fun to hear. Eric you are so amazing. You give so much of your heart. You are a sweet example to me. I love you.
Eliza turned two years old in July. I can't believe my baby is getting so big. I was really surprised when we had her and found out that she was a girl. I thought Hannah was enough girl for this family. But now I am so happy to have another little girl. She is so cute and sweet. She loves doing everything her big sister does, except go on the potty :) The other day I had cranked up the stereo so loud while doing my make-up. After a couple of minutes, I went to check on the girls. I had to spy on them so they wouldn't be embarrassed because I saw them totally dancing and singing in the hallway, to the song that was on the radio. They would grab hands and dance together, then alone, then together again. It was the cutest thing I had seen in a while. I mean, they are always doing cute things, but sometimes I don't stop to watch. Whether I'm too busy with chores, or make-up, or whatever... I've been missing out on some of the sweetest times of motherhood. Wow,...sorry, getting pretty deep. Anyways,... I love you Eliza Jeanne!
Eliza shares her birthday with Grandpa Patrick! They are RCB's...Recliner Cuddle Buddies. I'm so thankful that my kids have loving grandparents. It's all about family right? That is why we are here. Love you Dad!
We loved having our Aunt Rebecca and cousins, Jake, Grace, Sarah, and Rachel here during the summer! We miss you guys already :(
Eliza really bonded with her "Becca", it was really cute to see.
We even made it to the Jelly Belly Factory, and of course came home with a bag of "Belly Flops"!
The kids played so well with eachother all month. We just wanted to spend every minute with the Armstrongs. Hopefully you guys didn't get too sick of us :) We love you and can't wait until we see you again!
