That One Time We Celebrated 10 Years of Marriage

Thursday, December 5, 2019

This past June, Sean and I celebrated 10 years of marriage. Where does the time go?? Just look at these babies who met in high school...

We went back to where we had our honeymoon, which is what we always said we would do. And while we were there decided we needed to go back every 5 years...
Cumberland Island, you hold such a special place in our hearts. 

The Greyfield Inn is the only "hotel" on the island, but it's the best all inclusive experience.  It's basically the most perfect place in the whole world...and that's saying a lot since I haven't actually seen the whole world.'s just the perfect mixture of everything. 
Romance, private beaches, amazing food, outdoor activities, wild horses, get it. 

Plum Orchard


We did a little bit of everything and it was perfect. I mean, but let's not sugar coat the car sickness I had on the way there (no I wasn't pregnant...yet), or the horrible sunburn I got on my legs. But even with that I can still say it was a perfect trip with my most favorite person. 

Cheers to 10 (and a half) years, babe! Let's have a baby!

That One Time We Traveled to Colorado

Thursday, November 21, 2019

...the day after Christmas. 
This about sums up how the drive went...blurry and all! haha!

But in all was beautiful, cold, exhausting, fun, and an experience.
We're typically the beach-going type but decided to spice up this family vacation. We had so much fun...even though it didn't all go as planned.

We did our fair share of sledding, tubing, ice skating, eating, and just playing in snow (which we get so little of in south Arkansas). Sean and I also had an amazing snowmobiling experience; so fun! 

We definitely plan to go back...when all of our kids can walk. Wyatt was actually so confused as to why we weren't going back this year; they loved it so much!

A Unicorn Celebration for Stella and Claire

Monday, November 18, 2019

We celebrated our girls this weekend with a laid back, unicorn, party. 
The celebration included some of their closest friends, pizza, unicorn tattoos, cupcakes, and a pinata. 


A few "highlights":
Claire thought the pinata was so fun, and wanted to keep hitting it. 
One of the friends peed off the playhouse balcony.
Hot chocolate was a good idea...until it was spilled all over Stella and her friend. 
The pizza was devoured in about 15 minutes. 
Once we realized the pinata was not going to break easily, some of the mom's took a turn. 
Sean was the only daddy at the party...during hunting season. (See picture below.) 
Boys are rough. Period.
Stella cried...more than once.

We were supposed to celebrate our girls a couple weeks ago but had to postpone due to illness. But I think it was a wonderful success and the girls had a wonderful time!

Two Years of Claire Frances

Friday, November 15, 2019

Our Claire Frances,

I never expected your little life to fly by so quickly. I guess I shouldn't be surprised, you don't do many things slow. You have to be in the middle of everything and you are the first to let us know exactly what you want. But even with that, you are the sweetest little girl. And by far the most polite child we currently have (sshhh...). You truly believe your daddy hung the moon and would go anywhere with him, whether he asks or not. Your brother and sister strive to make you happy and love you so much. And I can't believe in a few short months you will be a big sister, and I know you'll be a great one. We love you, little one!
