Family Fun

We had a great visit this past week with Granna & Papa. I enjoyed having help with the little Savages and getting a few extra zzzzzz's. We celebrated Papa & Cole's birthday. Cole will be 3 on July 8th. Wow! Cole seems so big now. He was the baby just 2 weeks ago. Time flies. They kept the kids busy with trips to the park, going to see WALL.E, and visiting the McWane Science Center. We had fun! Thanks for coming.

Happy Father's Day!!!!

Happy Father's Day to my wonderful husband and our dads. We have been so blessed this week with the addition of Ellis to our family. She is loved and cuddled by all. You forget how every little sound and movement is just priceless. We all just sit around and watch her. Gracie and Cole laugh at her funny little facial expressions. Luke and I are just trying to soak up every minute of family time while they are all little and enjoying each other. We couldn't be prouder of our three little blessings. I can't help but think that is how God sees us. Watching us with pride. I couldn't of prayed for a better husband and friend. Luke has been everything to me and more since we met at good ole HU. Thanks for making all my dreams come true. We love our Daddy! Happy Father's Day!

One More for Love, Gracie and Cole introduce the Beautiful Baby Ellis





Have you ever been so proud of something you want to show everyone, but you don't really want to share. That is the state I'm in, I'm selfish I guess, I don't mind showing you Ellis, but I want to hold her. The problem is Gracie feels that way too, and Gina. Cole he likes to say "Mommy, Daddy I use one finger to touch her", so 3 out of 4 of us fight over her. I have never written a blog before and this is the best way to start.
INTRODUCING THE BEAUTIFUL BABY ELLIS
Born 6/11 at 2:46pm, 19in, and 6 lbs 12 oz. She has the most beautiful long dark hair, and cuddly little face. Ellis and Gina did very well yesterday and are doing even better today. Our family motto lately has been "One More for LOVE", and that it is.

Yippee -- Summer is here!!!!

We finished May with Gracie's dance recital, end of school parties, family visits, and High School Musical on ice. It was a busy month but FUN! We enjoyed our moms and uncle Clint's (Luke's brother) visit. Clint came in for about a week to hang with the kiddos. They couldn't get enough playtime in. Gracie did great at her recital. She's my performer. Dancing and singing are definitely her thing. Cole on the other hand was not to impressed with the whole recital and became quit restless. We had a blast at their end of school parties. Gracie's was a pirate/princess theme. We used our treasure maps to find hidden treasures, ate pizza, and Popsicles, and played games. Cole had a froggy themed party. We enjoyed playing games, eating chicken nuggets, and decorating cookies. To end our busy month we decided to take the kids to High School Musical on ice. We had a blast! Cole loves the basketball scene in the first show. He sings it all the time. Gracie thought it was so cool to see Troy, Gabriella, & Sharpay ice skating. Now we are on the final countdown for baby Ellis. We will induce next Wed. June 11th if she isn't here before then. Please pray for a healthy baby. We are so excited and can't wait to meet her!
