September At Our House

Maybe you have noticed--maybe not...For the past few months I've been trying to capture some of the "ordinary" that goes on in our home. It might not look like anything special when I post the pictures, but these are the day-in and day-out moments I don't ever want to forget. Being silly, laughing, horsing around in the backyard, enjoying special treats...yeah, these are the little things that make my life with these kids and my husband truly happy every single day. I know I've got a long way to go, but I want to relax and take pleasure in the simple things in life...

enjoying some "daddy time"

friends caleb and joshua came over for the afternoon--we went to get a snow cone treat
anthony and caleb rode the wagon

joshua didn't have any treats, but he still enjoyed the ride in the stroller
wait a minute--is that a bit of a smile i see? from a kim kid???
(what you don't see is the picture i snapped before this one was super serious!)

lucas loved it! he rode mario's back in his backpack. i know it's a little ghetto, but we had to take lucas and caleb's shirts off because we were afraid the spilled snow cone might stain!

anthony's dark blue shirt didn't matter

LOVE those grins--they are definitely having a ball!

some batting practice in the backyard

he really puts some muscle into that swing

love how happy he looks

baseball season is daddy's favorite time of the year!

tickle time!

watching big brother

Lucas loves playing ball

close up

can't get enough of this sweet baby

anthony is the king of the fort

love the dirty face--he's been playing hard

handsome boy

you can tell by his face that he really enjoys life to the fullest

my babies--getting too big too fast

horseplay with daddy

it sure is non-stop energy around here--but that's the way we like it!

on a trip to the mckinney farmer's market, we stopped to listen to the live music. one of the musicians let anthony hold his bass guitar.

(this was after the man saw anthony start to cry when we told him it was time to go home)

anthony and lucas play doctor

epidural, maybe?

might i add, Lucas is an EXCELLENT patient!

i know before too long i'll miss the days of little handprints on our grill and scribbles on our brick walls

one of the highlights of the month was when the city of mckinney decided to repair the sidewalk almost right in front of our house! wow! we spent several afternoons outside watching the men work instead of taking naps!

anthony was so excited to see both a backhoe loader and a cement mixer right on our very street! he loved watching the trucks and how they work!

more horsey riding on dada...we'll miss this too before too long!

LOVE that mario plays with them so much!
these boys sure do love their daddy
