Happy 5th Birthday Anna Claire

Anna Claire, you are so precious and full of life.  You make the funniest faces, love to dance, love your big sisters, and love doing school!  You have so much energy and are just the cutest little girl ever.  Life without you would be so boring.  We absolutely love you to pieces and have loved watching you grow the last 5 years.  Looking forward to many many more birthday celebrations with you.  We pray you desire to love the Lord with ALL your heart, mind, and soul and seek to honor Him in ALL you do ALL the days of your life.  You will Never go wrong seeking Him.  Love you sweet girl.  Love, your Mommy and Daddy

This is the perfect picture, because you love your Daddy and you love riding your bike!

Last day of gymnastics

Abby and Kyndal had their last day of gymnastics the last Thursday in May.  They have a "show off" day in June, but we won't be able to make it.  Craig was able to go to their last class to see all they have learned.  Their coach, who is awesome and so sweet, presented them with their trophies.  It was a surprise to them, so they were very excited, and surprised! LOL  We go back in August, all three of them:)

Abby, Coach Lauren, and Kyndal
(this was after class so they were super hot and sweaty)

SO proud of these sweet girls.

After every gymnastics class, we get in the car, and both girls say "Thank you for bringing us"!:)

Recent Happenings

Craig and I are training for a 10K and it's been so much fun.  Well, really it's just plain hard some days, but I love my running/workout partner.  Seriously, for years I've dreamed of the two of us working out and making healthy choices together.

We are going to begin training the girls on the couch to 5K soon, so they can run a 5K at the end of the summer with us.  Yes, they want to:)

Craig will be preaching at his home town church this summer for their Homecoming.  We are really looking forward to it.  We are also looking forward to spending time with our family and friends.

The girls just finished up gymnastics for the year and are all 3 registered for next year.  The big girls just love it and have come so far this year.  I know Anna Claire will love it and do great too.

We received a bike for Anna Claire that attaches to mine or Craig's.  She loves it.  It was such a sweet and thoughtful gift.

Kyndal had her first bad bike wreck recently, but is healing up nicely.

The weather here is just awesome right now, just wished it lasted longer, but enjoy it while it's here.  We are enjoying as much time outside as possible!

Abby has a braiding app on her kindle fire and always wants me to try new braids.  While she has perfect hair to play with, I'm not that great at it, so my version is a bit more simple, and she liked it.  Of course, the other two wanted theirs done too.  After I finished doing Anna Claire's she went to the mirror to look at it.  She came running to me and hugged and kissed me and said "Momma, I love it, it's just what I wanted".  Oh my goodness, my heart melted.

Have I ever mentioned how much we love these sweet faces?!?!
