a milestone

the last day of preschool for my two babies is today!

no, I can't believe it!

it seems like yesterday I was on semi-bed rest waiting for these two to get here.
(5 years ago to date)

where, oh where did my babies go???

they were SO excited because today was their "LUAU" party!

i made this little cake for them to take to celebrate.

sweet smiles and they will always our babies.

close up.
i know not perfect.

but I would say passing.

wondering if I had a breakdown this morning.

why, YES!

my little man could not find the shoes he insists on wearing every morning,
no others will ever work for him as of recent.
(we have moved on from boots to some old tennis shoes)

I was crying so much, he just went and got his
new shoes(the ones he has been refusing to wear)
and put them on voluntarily asking,
"Momma, is this okay. I love you."

sweet, sweet boy!

this week has been extremely BUSY, kiddos going in all directions,
and daddy busy until late each night.
Friday, can't come quick enough!

acoording to watkins than his daddio's pancakes!

yes, he tells me and jd that everytime we try and make them for him.

a f.a.v.o.r.i.t.e. place

is here.
yep, the whole family LOVES to get away to NOLA and thanks to grandy and daddio
for having this little place we try to go as often as we can.

a couple of weekends ago we went to get away and flee from the terrible weather that hit MS that weekend. JD hates bad weather!
grandy and daddio were there too and so double the fun was had by all!

yummy crawfish daddio cooked!

we crammed in the zoo, imax, and the aquarium thanks to grandy's nice member passes.
the kiddos had a blast and it made up for cutting our spring break trip short since the little
man got sick.

check out the fun and all the S.M.I.L.E.S.!
