Brotherly Love

First off, thank you so much for all the sweet comments and prayers for my Aunt Helen.  I am very sad to say she passed away early this morning.  The cancer was very fast and aggressive.  I am so glad I got to see her on Saturday.  She was still responsive and knew who we were.  It was hard for her to talk but when she did…she still made us laugh.  I know she is in a much better place…walking the streets of gold!


I just love this profile pic of Ryder.  Look at that bottom lip…Chris says he got it from me.  We have had a debate going since the day we met over who has the biggest lips! ha! I think it is Chris’s lip.


When I put Ryder on his play mat, Maddox always wants to lay beside of him and play.  I think it is too sweet! Everyday Maddox is having more and more to do with Ryder.  Their best bud relationship is growing!!


Saturday was such a busy day.  We made it to CMC to see my Aunt and then that evening, we had 2 birthday parties to go to.  The first one was for our cousin Harrison…he turned 2 and had a Cars party!  I wish I had gotten a picture of the Lightning McQueen cake…it was too cool!


Little Ryder slept the whole time!


My cousin Diana holding Ryder…below is Harrison and his Mom Tiffany.  Diana and Tiffany are twin sisters.


I wanted to get a pic of Harrison and Maddox so that I could compare it to thet pic I have of them from when they were about 6 months old.  Maddox was trying to take his toy…we are trying to teach him to share.  We got Harrison the truck and Maddox has one like it…so Maddox thought it was his monster truck!

On to the next stop!!! Keleigh’s surprise party!!


Liam, Harrison and Brayden.


It was such a busy evening I didn’t have the energy to try and get a lot of pics.  At one point, Chris was in one room changing a blow out diaper while I was in the other room changing a whole outfit from Ryder spitting up half his bottle.  Maddox started having a meltdown right when we were getting ready to leave.  Poor thing, he had a busy day!



I think Ryder looks so big.  Where did my little baby go?


Sunday evening…Chris and I had a date planned!  We dropped the kids off at my sister house and we went to Carowinds!!  I have come to the conclusion…I’m getting to old for all those rides!!  We had a blast though and I loved getting to spend some quality time with my Hubby!

Today has been a hard day with the passing of my Aunt.  I went to the funeral home this evening and did her hair.  I know that God has given me a special gift to be able to do that.

Hope everyone had a great Monday!!
