Last day of Pre-School!

Its the last day of pre-school! The girls have officially completed Pre-School 2's and have matured so much over the year. They have learned so much it amazes us. They can write a few letters now and can spell their own names. A big difference from the beginning of the year when they did not even know a single letter. They know a ridiculous amount of songs, say the blessing on their own and will sit in front of a book and make up a story to go along with the pictures. They had the best class with lots of special friends and wonderful teachers who care for them so much.

Last Day of School, Pre-School 2's

Here they are just 8 months ago on the first day of school!
I think they have grown a foot.

Court Cuteness

Back by popular demand.... a little Court cuteness.
16 months and full of energy.

Favorite Place to be: In Mommy's lap. He will knock Tyler & Harper out to get to the best seat in the house!
Favorite Food: Ice Cream! Milkshakes are a regular for our itty bitty. Just shy of 20 lbs he is on a high calorie diet of yumminess!
Favorite Book: Farm Animals and Fancy Nancy (with 2 older sisters what do you expect?)
Favorite Mode of transportation: Walking!!!!
Favorite thing to do: Bounce. On the bed, on the floor, on the trampoline. You name it, the kid bounces on it.
Nicknames: Goose, Crab (he has a mighty pinch), Buddy & Baby Court (yep, the girls still can't say his name without saying Baby in front of it)

I could go on, but I will let the pictures do the talking now....

Court, 16 Months

Our confident walking boy!

Hanging out on the firetruck.
He loves trucks of any kind. Can't say the word yet (well can't really say any words ~ late bloomer we have here) but he certainly grunts a lot when ever we see a truck.

Cupcake time at the Firetruck party.

Loving his little seat.

Favorite play time... all his cars, trucks & buses.
Must be a boy thing, the girls have never had any interest for anything with wheels.

Sweet boy up from a nap. Fluffy hair & flushed cheeks!

Sweetest little toes. And yes, he finally is starting to have a small interest in his blanket. We may have a lovey in the making.

Say Cheese!

We had a family photoshoot a few weeks back... it had been on the calendar for months and was a fellow blogger photographer coming to our area for 24 hours. Go figure the morning we were scheduled sweet Court had an ear infection and a fever. We almost cancelled but decided to power through. Our can't-get-a-smile-off-your-face kid was not so smiley but perked up a bit towards the end of the shoot for a sugary treat. Here are a few highlights from the day....

Mom & Dad were transported straight back to our childhood this weekend when we took a trip to the Rol-A-Rink (same one Daddy used to skate at back in the day!). It was hysterical to say the least. The girls thought it was so cool and caught on pretty quickly. Court came along for the ride and loved the music & lights.

Rol-A-Rink, has not changed a bit since Daddy used to come.

Tyler all ready to go.

Harper ready to get her skate on!

Morning Glories

This morning was an early morning at our house.... the little birds twirping outside must have woken up our little morning glories bright & early. At 6:30 am the girls came in to wake up Mommy wearing their swimsuits saying they were ready to play. Needless to say we got a little early jumpstart on our normally busy school morning. So we took advantage of the extra time and the pretty overcast weather to snap some photos of our crew....
