Parma Convention

As per normal we had a wonderful convention!  The kids did great and actually napped in a few of the afternoon meetings... they were exhausted from getting up early and playing so hard!
I made this early this spring... I love the high waist modification I added to the Charlie Mack a doodle dress pattern.

These girls! Cora lives right here and Tiana and her go to school together. Chloe was up from California so these cousins were inseparable! Cora said to Tiana on Thursday.... "Chloe is MY cousin!" I told her that Chloe was Tiana's cousin as well!  Their minds were BLOWN that they could all be cousins (well second cousins but that is too much for them to totally understand)!

Camden and Jasper... two peas in a pod.  These two think alike and were best buddies all through convention! Listening in on their conversations were priceless!!

 Fathers Day... how did we get so lucky? He is so involved with every aspect of the kids' lives.  He is there for bad dreams, and celebrates little milestones along side them.  He is kind, loving, patient, and a wonderful example.  We are so very thankful that he is ours!

Keaton is a baby boy, always has been, always will be.  He is patient and loving with the little ones and genuinely loves spending time with them! Little Miss Mira was leading him around by the tie and he was just following along enjoying every minute!

These two did not want to say goodbye and wished they lived closer!  Can't wait until we see them over the holidays!

School Out!!!!

I love making matching dresses for Tiana and Brynlee! A little impromptu photo shoot with the two cousins got some adorable moments!

Camden's pre-k graduation! This class is so cute!  Camden is... well a little loud, energetic, hilarious, and goofy... apparently he isn't alone.  This was the first time in all of my years of taking preschool photos that every single kid made a face!

We love Teacher Erica and I am soooo sad that we are done with preschool right now! Camden said he wanted to be an artist when he grew up!

 Last day of school!!

Right after school was out we were planning on going to Nebraska, however Grandpa Z got diagnosed with leukemia so Tom and Shanna came here.  We got to spend a wonderful bit of time with him right near the end. It all still seems so unreal, it went so fast. Grandpa Z loved God's will more than anything else and it was so evident through the way he lived his life.  During those last moments with him his focus was on our children and our spiritual well being. I am so very thankful that my kids will all remember him and his example.

During the time that Tom and Shanna were here, we got together with Jill and Justin as well!

Watching the grass grow! :)

Drinking up the sprinkler!

Miss Stella turned 4! I made her a frozen dress for her party!
