Can one have too many clothes?????

With the weather cooling off I decided it was time to bring out the boxes of boy baby clothes of Harrison's to see what would fit Bowen. Since Harrison and Mary Elizabeth were our first children home I knew that myself, family, and friends went a little over board buying clothes for them.
But I found out today just how OVERBOARD we went!!!

I counted 41 size 12 months boy pants!
YES, 41 pants all size 12 months for a boy and that does not include overalls or pants that are part of a set.
What baby boy needs 41 pair of pants??
I know we were excited about finally having a baby in our home, but I could not believe Harrison had 41 pair of pants.
I don't think I will be buying Bowen any more clothes!!! (OK, we all know that is NOT true!)

You can only imagine how many baby clothes Mary Elizabeth had being a girl!!!

Why can't I get anything accomplished?????

I have this adorable little shadow!!!!!

"I want to pick out my own clothes!"

Mary Elizabeth has always been very independent and strong willed. Now that she is older I give her more and more chances to make decisions for herself. She told me that she did not want to dress like Harper anymore, so I dress them differently most of the time (except I get my way sometimes!). Also she wants to pick out her own clothes, however she does not really know if something matches or not. This has been hard for me because I LOVE LOVE LOVE dressing my kids in cute clothes.
This how she dresses herself today...

Sorry Mary Elizabeth, but I think Mama will re-dress you before we go to church tonight!!!

I'm 8 months old!!!

I am one BUSY boy!!!
I love to empty the kitchen cabinets and drawers, climb the stairs, get in my brother and sister's toys, crawl in FAST speed, eat, eat, and eat some more, talk VERY loudly, and make everyone laugh! The only thing I don't like to do is SLEEP, I can't miss anything!!!

Bowen was eating a teething biscuit when a couple of pieces broke off and he looked like he had two BIG front teeth, it was so funny!!!

We always called Mary Elizabeth our little trouble maker, now we call Bowen TROUBLE MAKER #2!! He is so much fun!!!!

Our Kindergarten Classroom + 1 little trouble maker

We are loving homeschool!!
It is so nice to be able to be flexible and have our own schedule.
It is also nice to be able to help one on one.
The kids love having school and look forward to it everyday which makes it so easy!

Our favorite subject!!!

Bowen is a little trouble maker!
We call him our class CLOWN.

It's been a long time...

I know it has been too long since I have posted. The kids are growing so fast and changing everyday! We have had alot going on, so Blogging has not been a priority in my life right now!!
I started homeschooling the kids (Kindergarten) and that is going GREAT! I love having them home with me and they soak up everything like little sponges. They enjoying having school and they would do it everyday, even Saturdays! I LOVE these little guys sooooo much!!!

Harrison is enjoying being a BIG brother and sharing a room with Bowen. The first night Harrison said he stayed up most the night watching Bowen sleep because he was so excited!

Mary Elizabeth has always been our independent child and now I feel like I have a 15 year old in the house not a 5 year old!! But she is just excelling in her school work and is already moving on to 1st grade math. She also started reading small books.

Harper of course is still the happy child she has always been! She is my big helper when it comes to Bowen, we call her "little Mama". She will do anything for Bowen - which has caused him to become VERY spoiled!

Bowen had his first trip to the park and Harrison pushed him in the swing...

as you can see he LOVED it!

Bowen changes so fast. He is VERY active!!! He pulls up on everything, crawls very fast, eats constantly, talks loudly and non-stop, said his first word "Mama"! He is so much fun and brings back so many memories of Harrison and Mary Elizabeth when they were this age. He keeps me so busy, I do not know how I did it with 2 this age back then!!!

Thought I needed to post his 7 month pictures since he turns 8 months tomorrow!!

See my 2 teeth!!

They grow so fast, I am so thankful that I rarely miss a minute of it!!


I recently got to spend some time with my two sisters.
I love having sisters and so glad that we have a wonderful relationship!

Alli (the baby), Angie (the oldest), and me (the middle)

YEAH, My baby sister is getting MARRIED!!!!!
