My beach peeps...

****************Mom**************
loving, gentle, selfless,
funny, loves God, loves her family, crossword puzzle addict,
the only person I want around when I am sick,
an adored Mimi, & Bubba's best friend...
The rest of this big couch is always empty when she is there.




*************Reece***************


My sweet, brilliant, hillarious, gentle, handsome little boy...




How sweet is he? These are all candids.






****************************Tim****************************


My eye candy and guilty pleasure in life.

He cooks, prays, does dishes, puts kids in bed, works hard and loves me more than I ever dreamed possible. He will be 35 this Sunday (also Father's Day).

Expect a cheezy love post about him. I was created to be his wife.
There is no one else on the planet for me.He makes the most delicious waffles. They taste like doughnuts.************** Val and Brad**************

Val introduced me to Tim so I am forever grateful for her.
She has always been there to laugh with me, cry with me, pray with me.
You need to know her.
Brad is so great with kids, I have never seen a more natural kid person.
... and he adores Valerie.

Paper, rock, scissors anyone?



**************Bubba*************

My sweet, smart, snuggly, sneaky, beautiful monkey.

When he was 8 months old, we had to rush him to the hospital because his eyes rolled back in his head and he went limp. I thought he died in my arms. He was limp the whole way to the ER in the front seat as I sang praise songs and Tim checked for a pulse. I screamed "HELP ME! as I ran into the ER". I really thought he was gone. It turned out to be a bacterial infection that caused a seizure but I never thought I would see his first birthday. I love him so much.

He always prays before he eats.Crabbing- Yuck.
I don't enjoy this but it is worth it to watch them.

Tim accidentally bought them princess pull-ups.


It was really funny especially when they started fighting.






*****************Suzy****************
DROP DEAD Gorgeous, single, great job, & waiting on God's best for her husband.
If you know anyone, email me.
She is the total package.









***************Lake****************
My adorable & curly-headed gift from God, my joy, my curious and busy little giggler...

His hair is so curly that it won't even do a bath mohawk.A little girl had a tea set at the pool. Guess who played with it for hours?
Guess whose mom went to buy him one the next day to keep him busy?
Who knew?


All he wants is to be as big as them so he can do everything they do.
Soon... too soon.

Once again...awesome pictures! You have a BEAUTIFUL family!! I love going on vacation with several different people like you did.

I can't even count the number of times Rylee has ended up in Buzz Lightyear pullups! LOL

I can totally relate to the seizures...Rylee has had 2...had to ride in the ambulance to the ER...Andy Duncan (remember him??) was the EMT guy...as we went into a room in the ER there were about 10 doctors and nurses standing there with a crash cart...if that doesn't make you thank GOD everyday for healthy kids then nothing will! It is awful when your child lies there lifeless and you can do nothing to help them. :o(

Oh and tell Tim HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
