Court Cuteness!

Court is...
Our curious little 20 month old who always keeps us on our toes.
Our sweet natured mellow boy who loves a good snuggle.
Our train loving, truck obsessed boy.
Our adoring baby brother who would do anything to play with his sisters.
Our quiet one.
Our bath splasher.
Our ticklish giggle monster.
Our sunshine.

Such a boy.... drawn to dirt!

So proud walking the dog.

Happy boy.
After 30 days on antibiotics for a pesky ear infection he finally has a little pep back in his step.


The boys.

Sir Purr

We had an action packed weekend yet again... wondering when the relaxing weekends will return? A busy weekend, but a fun one.

Uncle Brandon & Dad did a triathlon and did great!
Their cheering crowd turned around about half way there since 3 kids + monsooning rain = disaster!

The girls had a birthday party... face painting is a huge hit!

Sir Purr is their obsession lately!
They hugged on him the whole party!

Go Panthers.
Cheerleaders in training.

Court in his favorite activity.
Splash, splash!

Please don't make me get out Mom!
Tears every night when bathtime is over.

What have we been up to?
Here are a few snip-its of life over the past few days...

Court before school.
Finally really starting to like it.
He still lets out a few tears to make Mommy feel guilty but all in all he is really loving it. The good selection of cars & trucks in the classroom seem to help!

Mommy & Daddy had a little weekend away in Atlanta and came home to a surprise party planned by the girls... homemade chocolate cake with sprinkles, marshmallows and candy. A fun 33 with the family, would not have it any other way!

Tyler loving her short hair still!
We all watched Tangled the other day and it was probably not the best timing because the girls said they wanted their hair long like Rapunzel.
Bedtime sillies.
Our house is a zoo from 5-7 but once the kids are in pj's, clean and ready for bed the fun really begins. All the last minute sillies come out, lots of laughter and normally a very adoring brother chasing after his big sisters. Some of my favorite moments of the day.

Last minute snuggle before bed with Daddy.
Harper reading a favorite, Where the Wild Things Are.

'Bob'sey twins, take 2!

After the girls insisting all summer that they wanted long hair like Mommy, there has finally been a change in the way they feel and they both have declared that short hair is cool. Mommy was a little hesitant but finally made the call & booked an appointment to see Aunt Jacquelyn for some bobs, take 2. This time without the bangs, not making that mistake again!!!

Harper left & Tyler right

Court along for the ride... 1pm is official nap time but he went with the flow.

This cut was the first wash & dry they have had.

How wonderful to have an identical twin....
Harper's "after" & Tyler's "before"
Pretty cool to see what you are going to look like.

Tyler getting her wash on!

Court still hanging...
Bribing with chocolate at nap time was probably not the best idea.

Loving it!

New haircuts for a new school year!

Bunk Bed Fun!

One of the fun things about moving into our rental for the renovation has been the addition of new bunk beds for the girls! They love them and Court loves them too!

Court hanging in Tyler's bed

Harper playing around!

Court cuddling up with Harper & Coco
This kid would love to be in a big boy bed... one day bud!

Happy Tyler

Double bunks...
the only way to solve the problem of who gets top bunk and who gets bottom.

But where did they come from??? They are actually from the lake house where Daddy and Uncle Brandon & Aunt Kristin used to sleep on them growing up. A little TLC from Mom, Dad, Honey and the girls over the summer and they are just perfect for the girls and the new house (when we move back in!)

Painting by Mom

Sanding by Dad

And some good old fashioned bare bum scrubbing by Tyler & Harper!

Worm Girls

Our little girls may be girly and love to dress up, have their toes painted and twirl in tutus... but their real passion is playing in the dirt and finding creepy, crawly creatures.

Worm Girls!



Digging in the dirt

1st Day of Pre-School

The first day of pre-school is here! I cannot believe all three are in school this year. The girls are in 4 days a week and Court is in 2 days a week. Everyone was up bright and early this morning ready for a new school year to begin.

Court, Age 19 months
Toddlers Class

Tyler & Harper, Age 3 3/4
Preschool 3's Class

Best Friends!
They were all smiles going into their new classroom this morning.

Court trying to carry his school bag.
Trucks in hand, ready to go!

Court, Tyler & Harper
It was a little bittersweet packing up three school totes this morning.

All TEARS today!
Cried when I dropped him off and cried when I picked him up.
Hoping Thursday is better for our little guy.

Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is a favorite for the White men... its opening day of dove season!

Successful hunt!
Brandon, Pop & Ian

Meanwhile the girls opted for a different kind of fun... well girls + Court. Soon enough he will be joining in on the dove hunt, but until then he is stuck with the ladies.
He did not seem to mind!
A trip to City Lake...
Tyler driving the firetruck!

On the train ready to go...

Court in heaven on the choo-choo!

All Aboard!

Its Merry go Round time.




The rest of our weekend festivities were rained out... boo hoo, go away rain!
