Brotherly Love

Cash adores his baby brudder! Since the day Rhett was born, Cash has shown nothing but love towards him. He has never once acted jealous about no longer being the baby of the family. If anything, he is overly affectionate with Rhett by constantly smothering him with kisses and hugs. This makes me so, so happy!

Their first set of matching jammies. Cash was so proud to show them off! I could just eat these two boys up!!!

I think it is so cool that we were been blessed with 2 girls and now 2 boys!

Happy Friday!
Hope you all have a great weekend!

Fall Festival Fun

Although it has been in the 90's all week, we tried to pretend like it was Fall by taking the kids to a local Fall Festival.

The McKellar's joined in on the fun, too!

There was a wonderful pumpkin patch where we could have taken great pictures of the kids, but we were too busy eating shaved ice to stay cool and fighting off bumble bees! Ha! Such is Fall in Texas! :)

Girl's Day

We had a girls day while daddy stayed home with the boys. Lily and Maggie both wanted to have their hair cut at Sweet and Sassy.

Maggie had a lot cut off, while Lily just got a trim.

It was also a BIG day for Maggie. She got her ears pierced! She has been asking for a while and was SO excited that she was finally having it done!

Unlike her sister, she sat there and never made a sound.

She chose the stone "October Rose". If you ask her, she will proudly tell you that is what it's called. Ha!

Love these two blue eyed girlies and making memories with them!

The weeks are flying by! We are always so, so busy! Last week, we had something every single night! Thankfully, this week has been a much slower pace. I have had this post in my drafts for over a week now. Hopefully I'll finish it soon. I guess you know it's been a while since you last updated your blog when someone asks your husband if everything is alright at home because I haven't posted in so long. Ha!

We gave my precious friend, Stacy (& her hubby), a diaper shower/baby blessing. She is having her 3rd baby, Landry, next week. We have been pregnant together with our last 2 babies. It was such a great night of laughing, talking, eating and prayer. So thankful for all these couples!

It has been so great having older children while also having a newborn. I have built in babysitters!! Score! Anytime I need to cook dinner, clean, do laundry, etc. the girls are always willing to hold Rhett. It doesn't last for too long, but I'll take all the few minutes here and there that I can get!

Cash had a fire truck come to his school last week. They handed out fireman hats. He wore that thing for days! He even took it to bed with him a couple of nights! Can you take a wild guess what he's going to be for Halloween?

Maggie joined Girl Scouts this year. This is a new thing for all of us. I was never involved in it growing up and Lily hasn't been in it either. Maggie had a mom in her kindergarten class start a troop and almost all the girls were joining. So, of course, we signed her up. Conn and I made a decision that during the Fall we weren't going to sign the kids up for any activities. With Rhett being born and having 2 girls in school full time, we just thought that it would be best to take a few months to get used to this "new" life. Her troop only meets once a month, so we figured we could handle that. :)

Littlest man is doing great! He will be 6 weeks old tomorrow! Wow! We haven't been to a check up since he was 2 weeks old, but the boy is getting huge! Little rolls are starting to form everywhere and there is definitely another chin that showed up. Ha! So stinking cute! He still HATES his car seat and pretty much anything that has to do with being put down. So, we do a lot of cuddling and staying home during the day. We get bored at times, but I just can't take the screaming in the car! AHHHHH!!!!! Praying it ends soon! Other than that, he is perfect!

Over the weekend, Mrs. Janet, Lindsay and Parker stopped by to love on the kids! We miss having Lindsay around, but SO thankful she stops by for visits when she is in town.

Momma snuck away for a couple of quiet, relaxing hours. Heavenly!

My life long friend, Callie, wrote an amazing post on her blog about the ups and downs of motherhood. She is my rock star friend who has had 4 babies in 3 years! You can read her post here.

Hope you all have a great weekend! It's beautiful right now in my neck of the woods! :)

We are on week 4 of having 4 kids. I think we are finally getting the hang of this whole thing. Someone asked me last week how do I get through every day? I laughed and said I have no idea! Ha! Honestly, though, I think we are surviving day by day with a lot of humor and a lot of prayer! Thankfully, Rhett is an amazing baby! We are just so beyond tired at times. You think by the 4th baby you would get used to this no sleep thing.

This precious love is 4 weeks old today! He has been smiling since the beginning of the week. I finally caught it with my iphone.

The girls had Donuts with Dad on Tuesday at school. They all love this event. Not only does Conn get to eat breakfast with his girls, he also gets to hang out with all his buddies that are dads too!

Rhett finally got to have a real bath! He LOVES bath time!

This big brother has become so grown up since his baby brother has arrived! He has been nothing but loving and helpful towards Rhett. Such a huge blessing! He is also SO stinking funny!

Someone celebrated their last year in their 30's this week...and, it wasn't me! :)

The girls also had Walk to School day. They love this event, too!

This is how I get most of my work done around the house. Such a sweet little helper! :)

Oh, isn't this just yummy?!

This is my life.
It is full.
It is so, so good. :)
