Happy Anniversary!!

Sunday, July 19th, my parents celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. All mom wanted for their anniversary was for her whole family to come to church with them and have lunch at their house. That was an easy request to fill!! Despite the air and sounds issues at church, it was fun visiting the place where I have so many good memories of growing up. My parents were seated in their normal seats in the balcony with their friends scattered around in their usual spots. It did feel a little bit like walking down memory lane (especially our wedding day). Well, now on to the part you like best, the pictures!!

Mom & Dad- Happy Anniversary!!

Swim Lessons!!

The past 2 weeks Hudson has been taking swim lessons with Emler and we LOVE it. Well, I LOVE it, Hudson just likes it!! He is 'swimming' underwater for 10 seconds....we use the term swimming very loosely. It is more of Hudson freaking out and kicking his arms and legs underwater for 10 seconds....but hey he is doing it!! We really do love Emler and would recommend it is anyone!!
Here are our pictures from today!!
Kicking our feet!!
Ella playing around while waiting for Bubba!!

New Adventures

This summer I have been playing around making crafts. I have used different ideas from friends- yes, I didn't come up with these adorable things- but I have decided to sell them to see what kind of business I could get. So, here is the link to my new website with fun things to buy:

Also, my friend Amanda and her mom Linda (yes, I know, my mom is Linda too, but I am not talking about us) make beautiful custom baby bedding and curtains. She is getting her business up and running, so here is her link:

Check them out and tell me what you think.....I take constructive criticism very well!!
