Atlanta Wedding

Chris and I went to the most amazing fairytale wedding in Atlanta this weekend.  My brother-in-law's sister got married, and we were fortunate enough to get to celebrate with the wonderful Shatlock family.  A big special thanks to Christopher's parents who kept our babies so we could enjoy the weekend kid free.

Back to School

The kids have had a great first week back to school.  I love their new preschool this year - they have both been so happy to go and seem to be adjusting well to their new schedule.  I missed their first day due to work but my sweet hubby took some pictures for me and managed to get them dressed and out the door on time by himself.
Practicing "naps" on their new nap mats.

End of Summer Fun

We have enjoyed this last month of summer - spending lots of time at the pool and lake.  Ashlyn learned to swim this summer.  It's amazing.  In June, she would not even put her face in the water.  Now she jumps in the deep end by herself and can swim all over.  We went to the pool the other night and there were so many flies while we were trying to eat dinner.  Ashlyn said "Mommy, it's really buggy out tonight." :)

She loves these Disney clip princess dolls. I think we have every single princess except Jasmine, who was selling on amazon for $90. thanks.
They had so much fun at Vacation Bible School.
This little guy has finally learned to go to the potty.   Boys are way different that girls.  My mom came for a visit and did a "potty training bootcamp" with Chase and he did great.  It's still a work in progress.
Chase's first time fishing with Pop.
I love this picture.  We were getting ready to go to bed and heard the ice cream truck.  How can you say no?

We spent a wonderful few days with family at the beach.  So thankful we live close and are able to enjoy summers playing in the sand.
Mimi, Pop and cousins Grayson & Sam.
This makes me laugh.  Chase screaming "NO MORE PICTURES."  Ash looks terrified.
Sweet Ashlyn took this one of my fav boys.

I can't believe my baby turned three!  We had a really simple birthday celebration with family, pizza and cake.

Chase is the sweetest angel and I am so thankful for him.  He loves to laugh, be silly, and play with swords, bats, trains, trucks, action figures, and tools.  Every night he asks me to lay in bed with him and tell "Beanstalk Jack".  He loves for me to scratch his back, hold him, and give him kisses and hugs.  He is so affectionate and knows exactly how to melt his mommy's heart. His favorite clothes are his Gamecock jersey, Superman shirt (which he thinks is Batman) and his Thomas the Train pajamas.  He managed to wear all three for his birthday.

He is still in speech therapy but has made lots of progress.  He was evaluated this summer and will start therapy in the school system in August.  He can say lots of things but is still hard to understand sometimes.  
He HATED the balloon surprise when he opened his door yesterday morning.  All he kept saying was "STOP IT."  Maybe he will like it better next year.
