Well its official Payton has her car and is driving all over Earths creation!  She has had a car sitting in the drive since Sept. but her grades went from A's and B's to D's and I said NO WAY!!  So I told her if she got them back up I would get the licence and ins.  Well all I can stay is stay off the sidewalks;-)

Little Miss thang is doing so many things these day it is hard to keep up and kinda bittersweet for momma to.

                                               First bite of rice cereal.
                                               Not really into it can't ya tell.

First bath with the boys.  She liked at first then we turned on the water and out came the pouty lip.  I think we will stick to the sink for a while.

First time in her  highchair.  She looks so much like her daddy here don't ya think?

First time with applesauce.  Yummy!!

The  first time playing the xbox with the boys.  Her big brothers just adore her and her big sis to:)

Piper got baptized This past Sunday and boy did she look pretty!  Lori Kilpatrick took my wedding dress and made her baptismal gown out of it.  It was sitting in the basement in a box so I thought this way we could pass it down to the future babies in the our family.  It was Catholic schools week so I had a friend make her a onsie that said future wildcat on it.  We had a dinner afterwards with the family and Godparents and when everyone left we put on the floor to stretch and she rolled over!  She is just getting so big so fast.

Well are you flipping out because we sure were!  Where are we going to put another kid, how are we going to put them through college, driving, feeding another one oh my, my what are we going to do?? I had flu like symptoms and it didn't even cross my mind this could be the reason why looks like it was.  I got home from work and sent Brad out to get a movie so I could have some privacy while I took the "test"  low and behold this is what I got two lines.  I called him real quick and told him to get his you know what home we needed to talk.  I really thought he was going to hit the floor. I was just as shocked as he was.  Who would have thought this could happen to us again.  After we picked our hearts and jaws up of the floor we knew it would be okay.  Yes it has been okay Piper Jane is one of the four greatest things in my life I don't what my world would be like without her.  It was one year ago today that all that excitement was going on in my world and it is still going;-)

With that no I am not pregnant just celebrating the 1 year anniversary of finding out that Little miss Piper Jane was going to be part of our world.  I had you going though didn't I!

My little mann is getting so big.  He was able and excited to do basketball camp this year and he can't wait to play basketball for real!  It is just so hard to fathom the notion of how quickly children grow.  He will be having another first milestone Friday  and staying out of town with a buddy and his parents.  I almost said no, but can't keep him from doing these things forever:(  We love Patton, you never cease to amaze us.

Parker got the privilege to go check out some cool guitars the other night.  One of my customers husbands makes these very beautiful guitars.  He said it takes him a few months to put one together and he ships them all across the world!  Parker picked out his favorite one and asked the price.  His wheels were turning thinking of how he could come up with that kind of money.  He said he would sell his 4wheeler and take money out of his piggy bank.  Unfortunately I had to tell him that would still not be enough.  So we just told him to practice, practice, practice and we would see what we could do down the road.  A BIG thanks to Bob and Nancy Wallace for being the heros of the day and  making a little boys evening:)  The first two pictures are his favorite the first one being  more in his reach of saving, the second one being the one he really wants.  I think I have a guitar collector on my hands.

Wedding dress part one.

I got my wedding dress out and we decided to have some fun with it.  I have something special coming up and plan to use it for that

The front

The back

Payton almost got in to it

Piper waiting patiently for her turn

and yes the boys were very kind to their mother and indulged her in trying the dress on to:)
Patton thought he looked so lovely

A little long on him wouldn't you say

The best one yet Parker says you better not tell anyone I am doing this.  I just laughed and said oh you know it will be on my blog;-)

The littlest princess in the family

YES!  It still fits I must say I have a little bit of a tummy bulge in this side shot so I will just have to remember that for future picture taking.

I will keep you updated on what is going on with the dress.  I am very excited about it:)
