StoryTime... with Emery and Bridger Beau

"I wonder what story she will tell tonight"

"Oh! I like this one"

"I think this is the one with the dragon"

"I hope it's not too scary"

"It is! It's the one with the dragon!"

"and then what happened?"

"Stop! Pause for dramatic affect"

"this better have a good ending, toots!"

"What a story! I'm pooped..."

Good night kisses and off to bed!

LOVE you Em!

One Year Ago Today....

Our family was blessed with this kind soul.
One year ago our family was complete with the arrival of this little boy.
Our fourth and final.
Bridger Beau is our joy baby. He is such a delight.
I must admit, I have a hard time writing about the last year. I don't want to share him.
He is special to me.
My Last.
I have felt like I need to cherish every little moment.
Treasure it.
I love being a mommy.
I love being Bridger's mommy.
Happy Birthday Bridger Beau!!!
You are so loved!

Ball Game

For Porter's Birthday, Papa Charlie and Grandma Carol got him
tickets to a Diamondbacks game. He took Tate and Dad for
a fun time at the ballfield. They played the Rangers, and beat them in the 9th
inning. Porter got an autograph from Treanor, who is the Ranger's catcher.
At the end of the game they ran over by the Dback's dugout, and were able to
talk to and get a picture with Ryan Robert. Robert had a base hit in the 9th
to drive in the winning run. It was a great time for the boys. Tate couldn't wait
to get him a snow cone. Good thing they were only $5.00. The only
downfall was that Porter did not get the foul ball hit two rows behind them.
Dad sure loved the time he had with his boys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh Sister!

This is "our" Paige Ella. I say "our" because i would love to claim her (and her big sister for that matter) but alas she is owned by my wee sister Lauren and her dear husband Morgan. And i am very certain they will not be giving her (or her sister) up anytime soon!
Paige Ella was blessed this weekend. She was given a name and a blessing by her daddy, and what a mighty blessing it was! So often i am reminded of what amazing spirits who are walking among us. This little gal is one of them!
You are loved sweet Paige, by so so many!
But in particular, and most assuredly by ME!
