Heber Springs: Family Reunion 2014

Last year Casey's family did not get together for the annual reunion. 

Which I hated we didn't but at the same time... new baby, new house, crummy heart issues.. no way we would have been able to join in on the fun!

everyone was so excited to be there! 
despite their faces. haha

The obligatory sibling picture.. 
Auntie Krista was hamming, clearly...

don't worry, i got her to smile. haha

These three are all 40 months apart. 

I know how tired I am some days and couldn't imagine these rascals...

Cbear tried his hand at fishing and had a blast!

The waterway the cabin is located on has water coming down from the mountains. It was about 89 outside and i swear to you that water was a good 55 degrees. brrrr

Cousin time!

Lots of time sitting on the cliffs

ac/ nap break for baby. he did AWESOME the whole weekend!! 

Made the visit that much more enjoyable to have an easy baby!!

more pics coming soon, until then...

To say sister is tired is probably an understatement!! 
Here we are with our precious teacher Ms. T. 

We have several friends in our classroom and we are over the moon to have them with us!! 

Simply because of wedding chaos I wasn't able to do anything extra special for the first week so I plan on doing that as an after school surprise this week!!! 

Off to get somethihg fabulous together!!

Wedding day

We had a busy busy weekend celebrating my sister and Chris! 
Here is mom with two of her friends. 
Mrs Phyllis hosted a delightful bridesmaid luncheon Friday morning! 
Friday night we celebrated at therehersal dinner. The shrimp boil was a hit and the food tasted amazing! 

Here was my crafty contribution to the wedding. 

Sister ordered the candy and made the banner and I fluffed and made signs. 

This was a HIT at the reception and only a tiny bag of candy remains!! 

We will have professional pictures very soon!! 

Mom made all the kids outfit and they were simply stunning!

First Day of Kindergarten:Meet the Teachers

Today was the day. 

The day you realize all your lazy days in pj's are over.

The big K!!!

Sister woke up and BURST into our room.

Just like a clip from Stuart Little.

It's today, it's today, it's today!!!!

She was elated!

We had her breakfast of request..

Sister schubert Cinnamon Rolls!!

We dressed, drove to school, and right as we pulled up a sweet preschool friend parked right behind us!

Both girls squealed with delight and walked in together!!

We spent the longest day ever waiting to pick her up!!

Can't wait to hear all they did!

Transformation Thursday

I was super excited to show yall a quick transformation today but I had a spray paint debacle. 

I am assuming there is a run in the color so I am going to head up to the store to see if I can get another can :)

We found this cute little tool bench at a garage sale for $5.00.

I just knew we could transform it into some thing precious to put in c's room!!

We have been collecting some Melissa and Doug tools and other accessories over his last two birthdays to make this into a fun little play space into his room!!

So ready to finish this up and show yall just how cute its going to be!!

*went to the store, took the tool bench with me and the associate was less than helpful ;( 
Fingers crossed this can works!

Destin, then off to Gulf Breeze

We finished up the end of our vacation in Gulf Breeze, Florida (just outside of Pensecola)
(Fresh out of the pool and taking a glimpse at the vastness of the ocean)

I wasn't sure what to expect as we have never been to the area before.

We stayed at the Hilton and the best part is there was a zero entry kids pool.
Such a helpful big sister she is!! 

I am sad to say we didn't even go down to the beach once with the kids.

The pool was that awesome!!!
We spent the first day/night hanging out with my mother in law and uncle j! 

We grabbed a bite to eat at McGuire's which never disappoints! 
 Then they headed back home (about an hour away) 

Next morning we headed to the bay for some quick pictures! 
This is one I will treasure for all eternity! 

The love they have for each other is unreal! 
A girl and her baby! 
After pictures we all came back to the room for nice long naps! 

Then packed up to spend a couple days with the inlaws!!

Such a fun vacation!! 

Got to meet some sweet friends in real life.
Most importantly, I made myself drink in my time with my babies!!
