For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my petition that I made to him. 1 Samuel 1:27

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

It was all about Sean this weekend, and it was so much fun.  Friday night, we went to Mexican Kitchen with Nana and Frank.  Yesterday, Sean took the boys to the deer camp for a work day.  They all had a blast.  I stayed home with Thomas and cleaned the house.  We all had lunch at home, and then we put the boys down for a nap.  After an hour of talking to each other in their beds, we decided to just let them sleep in the car.  We headed for Tuscaloosa for an Aldi run and Sean's birthday dinner at The Shrimp Basket.  We watched Tennessee beat Florida!!  Go Big Orange!  We sat next to some other Tennessee fans, too.  Luke kept saying, "Go Vols, Pop!"  The boys got lots of attention, especially Thomas. One of the servers took him all over the restaurant showing him to everyone, and she kept saying how juicy he was.  It was hilarious!  Today, we had church, played outside, and loved on the boys.  It was a great weekend!  We sure love our daddy!!

Luke loves my tennis shoes.  He clomps around the house in them, and last night, he even slept in them.

At one point Saturday, Sam and Luke were crying.  Luke got up right before I took the picture.  I don't even remember what they were crying about now.

Birthday Weekend with Pop and Linda

We had the best weekend with Pop and Linda.  They came down Friday afternoon and left around lunch time today.  We did the usual...ate well, swam in the hotel pool, and hung out at the house.  We wouldn't have it any other way.  The boys had a blast, and they got lots of attention from Pop and Linda.  The highlights of the weekend were noodles and new goggles for the pool, a cool app on Linda's phone that makes your face look painted, and the chocolate cake from Muddy's. Sam and Luke even wore their goggles to Cracker Barrel this morning.  We had so much fun!!

The boys opened Sean's present for him.

Random Pictures

We've had modem trouble, so I'm just now able to post our weekend pictures.  There was nothing eventful from the weekend, except that Sean started building me a cabinet for my birthday.  To say that I am excited is an understatement.  We have so much gear that we take to and from school and Peggy's...backpacks, lunches, my pump, diaper bags.  Then there are all of the bills and papers that just sit on the counter because there is nowhere else to put them.  Now I will have a cabinet to hold everything, and it will be right by the door.

Luke started driving the gator this weekend.  He just got on it and steered like he's always known how.  He would drive it before, but he couldn't steer.

                          We bought an exersaucer from Peggy's daughter, and Thomas loves it.

Sam's new hiding place

Sam and Luke included Thomas in the dress up.

Sam has always been our super creative one, but Luke is proving to be pretty creative, too.  This was his "umbrella."

We have to drive by this train every Sunday on the way home from church.  Sean found out that you get on it, and the boys were in heaven.
