she loves fruit chew snacks.
yes, I let her have them.
please don't judge.
sorry to disappoint but I allowed that too.
all while helping my big girl organize her binder.
and don't forget this - grades that make me proud!
Mondays are not easy especially while waiting for 30 minutes for the
missing brown-eyed girl to finish her "Cheernastics" class.
Fruit snacks, orange soda, my diet pepsi(not pictured), and LJ's funyuns(also not pictured) make it all bEtTer!
promise. try it.

Let me just start by saying Sunday afternoon I thought this picture would be the next face that you were going to see on missing poster, news flash, milk carton........
Sunday afternoons at our house always consist of a nice nap.
The babies know this and Watkins was not happy about the
nap he was soon to take.
I was in our bedroom and told JD to send the babies back, so we could nap.
Phelps came on back, and Watkins did not.
JD started calling for him, and there was no answer.
Then JD, LJ and me all started calling and looking. We looked outside, in closets, under beds, and at the neighbors' houses.
JD hopped in his truck to look and I started knocking on doors asking if anyone had seen him.
After 30 MINUTES of searching and NO WATKINS, I called JD and told him it was time to call the police.
5 minutes later, police cars, questions about him, and I just kept thinking about his sweet face, personality, and just my baby boy.
I continued knocking on doors and was 3 streets over when I heard people calling
Our little man was found. Where had he been you ask?
His momma and daddy's closet under clothes and in a suitcase.
JD made him explain to the police why he had hid.
What did he say?
"I did not want to take a nap today."
That answer, seeing his sweet face, and then the nice long nap I had
snuggled up to my Watkins was one of the best afternoons in a long time.

little miss is very observant especially when she likes something,
AND she loves the cheerleaders.
me - "No bow, just ribbons! Just like the real cheerleaders!"
Of course, we got it right.
this is from when just wearing maroon and
white was okay in her book.

long days cheering on their sisters.

sOcCer.........relaxing on the beach with teamates.
another highlight of the day lunch at LuLu's!
LJ caught this BIG jellyfish, nope she is not scared.

this is the preschool choir that I help with - almost ready to sing during church.
if you are looking for Watkins, well, he preferred to sit with his daddy in the congregation.
let's just say choir just isn't his favorite past time.
KD had a duet with a friend, and just imagine she did lOvE
being the center of attention, for sUrE!
Watkins, KD, Phelps and friends all smiles after performing.
There is just something about the voices of little children that I just love.
LJ was MIA this day.
these are the kiddos that hang out at our tailgate on Saturdays.
give and take a few.
yes, at a glance they all look like just regular bulldog kiddos
until you add a certain prized object.
you WON'T believe what they did all day for entertainment?
HINT.....this was involved.
then it was put like this.
yes - they caught SEVERAL fans like this.
then they made them pay money to be untied.
$$$ profit for the day = $10
Bulldog fans....BE AWARE!
I am pretty sure the cheering from all the tailgates surrounding us was as
loud as a crowd at an average little league game.
good news - no one was hurt and everybody left smiling.
