An "I Do" and Sweet Friends

This past weekend, we loaded up the whole family, and headed to Shreveport, LA, where I was born, to attend the wedding of a sweet friend of our family.

My moms bestest friend, Kathy, had a son that was getting married. Between our two families, there are 7 kids total. Tim is the last of us to finally get married. :)

These momma's have been best friends for a long, long time.

Some of us kids (the two youngest weren't born yet). We have all been friends a long time, too! That's me with the piggie tails and bows. Can you say..."Hello, Lily!"

Here we are all together. This was taken 5 years ago. We are lined up in birth order. See that young boy on the end? That's Tim. He is the youngest of our crew and the final one to say, "I do!"

Now, for the wedding...

This picture makes me laugh. All the kids are looking different directions and Conn and I look like we are just happy to be alive and standing! HA!! But, it is the only one we got, so it will have to do.

Sweet cousins waiting for the fun, fun reception to start

Last night, we went to our Chick-fil-a, to see Dora and Diego! This was Maggie's dream come true! Well, if you consider staying from a very far distance and tightly held in Conn's arms, a dream come true! HA! If you know her well, you know two things...she is obsessed with Dora BUT she is also terrified of dressed-up characters!! So, this was gonna make for a very interesting night. Much to our surprise, she warmed up very quickly and was hugging all over them within 10 minutes of us being there!

Our sweet friend, Grayson, was there!

Maggie wouldn't go near them by herself, but Lily had no problem!

School days, school days...

School days, school days,
Dear old golden rule days.
'Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic,
Taught to the tune of a hick'ry stick.
You were my queen in calico,
I was your bashful barefoot beau,
And you wrote on my slate,
'I love you, Joe,'
When we were a couple of kids.

For as far back as I can remember, my dad always sang this song to me when he would wake me up for school in the mornings. Yes, he woke me up every single school day until I graduated from high school! I never owned an alarm clock until I went off to college. I taught this silly song to Conn when we got married. Now, we have passed on this tradition, and we sing it to the girls every morning when we wake them up. They squeal under the covers and get the biggest kick out of it! I love it!

This is me in 1st grade! HA!

School days...are in full swing around this house! Today, Maggie, was finally able to start at her school! She loved it and had a wonderful day! She is sad that Lily is not with her this year, but she got over very quickly when she realized that she no longer has to take naps (at school!) and gets to play on the big kid playground! Fun times, I tell ya!

Big sister, Lily, is about to finish up her 2nd week of kindergarten. She loves it so much, and was so sad last week when we told her that she doesn't get to go on the weekends. Funny! She has met so many new friends and absolutely adores her teachers and her class! We are so blessed!

Here she is with her sweet friend, Gavin. They are in the same class! Lily and Gavin, have known each other since they were born and his family lives a couple of houses down from us.
