Sunday Shots

We sometimes take the girls pictures on Sunday afternoons after church. They are usually in their church dresses and looking pretty cute. Here are some pictures from a few weeks ago. They were laughing so loud you could see their tonsils in some of the pictures. We have been blessed with very happy girls!

Pizza Party

Tadd and Ella made pizzas together last week for Dinner. They had a lot of fun and made a big mess! Ella had to test out the ingredients.

Rootin 4 Razorbacks

The Hogs may not have looked good at the game, but the kids sure did! We went up the Hill with the Lanes for the game this weekend. Ella and Brooks were funny at the game. Brooks knows the name of some players and Ella just likes wearing her cheerleader outfit and dancing with the cheerleaders on the field.

Gut Giggles

Sophie is such a good baby, just like Ella was. She is very happy and loves to laugh at us. Here is a clip of her gut giggling. She is pretty ticklish as you can see. I just figured out how to upload videos so we will be getting out the video camera more often.

Park Photos

The weather is so nice out that we have been taking the kids to the Park to play a lot this week. We decided to take some pictures with our good camera today. Here are a few of the pics.
Doesn't she look big!
She looks like she's holding on tight!
Ella trying to pose-I think.

I scream for Ice cream

I'm picking up Julie's girls some this week from school, so today I had to take them out for some Ice Cream on our way home. We picked out these cute clown cones that were fun and messy. It's still so hard to go to the school where Mom is supposed to be teaching and watching over all our girls, so I thought Ice cream would be a good distraction. They loved it! Gabby used to send Mom Baskin Robbins money every month for her to take us out for Ice cream, the funny thing is we never even told her about the several years that Benton didn't have a Baskin Robbins-ha! (and she just kept sending money) We had to call Gabby today.
They just love playing together, I'm glad I get to pick them up this week and let the girls play together.
Sophie wanted some too!! Julie and Mom used to give Ella Ice Cream when she was a baby, but I haven't given in-yet!
They are just too cute together!

Golfing Gymnast

Ella is in a gymnastics class on Monday mornings and of course she wants to stay in her outfit all day long. Many nights she and her daddy will go play golf on the tee box behind our house for fun. Here are some of the shots of them playing tonight. She's not sure if she wants to be a golfer or a gymnast but for now she likes them both and looks cute doing them.
She's such a sassy little poser!
Action shot!

Golfing with Daddy
Pretty good form I think.
Back to a princess!!

Ella's 1st Day of Preschool

Ella had her first day of Preschool today. She had a lot of fun. Her teacher's name is Mrs Helen. She is holding up a number one because my Mom always took our picture on the first day of school and made us hold up a number one (even in High School). She was the best Mom and I'm trying hard to be just like her!

Here are some pictures of Ella riding rides when we went back to Branson a few weeks ago.
She loves to ride rides and hold her hands up in the air. She even does this sometimes when we drive down a hill in the car saying Weeee! She is so funny and is getting so big!
She is such a poser, like someone else I know.

Sophie Sue is Six Months Old

Sophie is now 6 months old! She is a very good baby and we think she looks a lot like her big sister, especially when comparing their baby pictures. She recently weighed in at 16 1/2 pounds and is 27 inches long. She is a good eater as you can tell. She also loves to gut giggle and grin.
I think the flash scared her!
They are wearing their "Ciao Bella" shirts their Uncle Josh and Aunt Sarah bought for them in Italy on their trip this Summer. It means "Hello Beautiful" in Italian.

She has such a sweet smile!

Believe it or not I am actually making Sophie's baby food. Here is a sample of the carrots we made together. Tadd isn't sure where this is coming from since I don't even cook for him, I'm sure it's a phase.

She decided to help me stir them with her toes!

She also thinks that she can feed herself.

What a cute face!
