Having trouble

I'm having trouble logging into my blog. My app on my phone got erased and now I can't access  any of my photos or get on through my desktop. I am going to be devastated if I can't blog anymore. I have loved this family journaling. Hopefully I figure it out and can erase this post soon. I'm so sad and frustrated!

Willa's fairy festival.

I LOVE this new tradition.  It's so

Last swim of the season

Getting a monthly pic of this boy is getting harder.

Big helper

This little lady has become the biggest helper all of a sudden. She will look at Eddie and say "I love my Eddie." She will help feed him and make him laugh in the car. I am so happy and pray this sibling love continues. 

People are good

Doing Lila's tree has been such a sweet experience. I have been so touched by people who have gone out of their way to help and show us love. I have been so impressed with people's goodness. 
Lately I have been trying to find some great pieces to add to the tree, things that will make it special. I contacted one of the artists that I follow on Instagram and asked to collaborate on a "be joyful" sign. Joy is the best word to describe my girl. I told her what we are doing with it and then separately asked if she could do Lila's tulip on a sign just for me. She replied that she would love to gift me the sign. People are so amazing. It's always nice to have that kind of moment when you look around in this world and see so much hate. 
So many sweet treasures are being collected for the tree. I am getting so excited and hope that it turns out as well as it looks in my head. This will be a hard tree to say goodbye to. 

Ruby quotes

While snuggling in bed, completely out of the blue,  "Jesus is my homie" 

When she went to a neighborhood camp and they asked her to sit in a circle. 
"I'm a princess, I don't sit in circles" 

Wherever I tell her that what I am doing is only a mommy job (such as making scrambled eggs) she says "well I'm a mommy too, lulu is my baby, so we can both do it"

First day of preschool


First day of dance!! This little girl is so excited! She has been waiting a long time to go to class. 

Her teacher said she has true natural talent. 

Working on the tree.

We are busy working on Lila's tree over here. This is such a labor of love. 

Dixie chicks

Dixie chicks concert with my neighborhood ladies! 

We had so much fun. I felt like I was in high school again. 

We love the mountains

Cousin love

We went to visit evie at her school for her birthday and as soon as Eddie saw her he jumped out of my arms for her. It was so cute.
