OH the fun times ahead!

Ben lost his first tooth today!
 Brigham found Ben's missing tooth!
Just kidding, he had his first tooth break through the gums today in the same spot Ben lost his tooth. Crazy coincidence.
Brigham and I have been working on waving.  And yesterday I had the video camera out and he started waving to me.  Yeah Brigster! It was quite cute.

Just a heads up I went crazy with updating the blog, so you'll have to go to older posts to see all the stuff I updated.

McCormicks Creek State Park

Today we visited McCormicks Creek State Park
Lucy wanted to be our navigator.
 We contained Josey to Matt's back. (Brigham was on mine, I got the much lighter load thankfully.)

 We chose to do the trail that had switchbacks through the creek. 
We stopped at one of the switchbacks and let the kids play.  Immediately Lucy was wet (not uncommon) and dirty (not surprising).  Jo was next to get soaked (not uncommon to follow Lucy).
 If you can't tell, she is going through this phase of sticking out her tongue for pictures.
 Ally is growing up way too fast.
 Lucy is such a pretty girly girl, who LOVES to get dirty and have fun doing it.  Then get a shower, get dressed back up and accessorize before coming downstairs.
 He had a blast.


 She had a blast.

 He loved the water.



 Matt caught a crawfish/crawdad.

 These stairs just about killed me.  My legs are gonna be sore tomorrow.

After this we stopped at Cataract Falls to check it out.
Then Matt treated us all to hot fudge sundaes.

Curly rag curls

While we watched Tinkerbell Pirate Fairy I put rags in Lucy and Ally's hair.  Jo wanted no part.
This was Lucy right before I took out her rags.  I will say before putting the rags in I asked if she wanted me to make her hair curly and she was all for it.
 Once she realized her hair was all curly, she was MAD.
 Ally was excited.
 Happy boy! 
 This little girl runs non stop whenever she's awake.
 We're trying to make her hair appeal to her.
 This pony tail helped a bit and then one with all of it helped a lot.
 Ally loves books and we couldn't be more elated.  I picked up Swiss Family Robinson at a garage sale today and she finished it by the end of nap time.  And was half way through another book by bedtime.
 Look how grown up she looks.  I kept looking at her thinking "where has the time gone?"


 Silly Josey.

Oh brother!

Ben was laying on the floor and Brigham kept crawling on top of him and attacking him.
Brigham was laughing the whole time and Ben thought it was so cool that he was trying to wrestle with him.


 Playing on the kindles.
 I'm coming to get you mom.


 Brother kisses.

Cute, growing too fast kids

Grandpa and Grandma got Briggs this cute outfit.
 They got Lucy this shirt that she has worn countless times in the last week.
