mother's day and baby jacob's dedication...5.10

mimi and her little boy...SO happy to have him home with us on mother's day!
doesn't drew look thrilled?...he is such a little punk when we try to get him to smile for the camera these days! we were SO glad to have nana and pop pop with us this sunday too!
sweet little man getting a little snack before heading into the worship service...gotta be on our best behavior!!!
baby BOY jacob wearing the same gown that big sister and big brother wore for their mother's day dedications...
jacob was the STAR baby...pastor hal asked miss sandy which baby he should hold in the service and she said jacob was the most laid back baby she knew :) so, jacob walked around with hal for a few minutes...miss sandy's OWN grandchild was dedicated that morning too! a special morning!
it was a very great morning! we made it through the dedication portion of the ceremony with no tears and no stains on our clothes...and then we all headed to our house for a great, relaxing lunch and lazy afternoon. it was a great way to celebrate mother's day!!!

ocho de mayo and a HUGE surprise...5.8

we were going to have a typical cinco de mayo party on tuesday night with our friends the jenkins, herringtons, and yorks, but mac is travelling right now during the week for work, so we postponed to friday night...and coined the party excuse..."ocho de mayo".
the kiddos played outside and inside to their hearts content and the adults enjoyed a relaxing evening of conversations that didn't involve "why?" being asked every other second!
sarah donned her mexican best for the occasion! hat and dress courtesy of mimi and poppy!
drew "fixed" the bounce house while griffin looked on...
all the kiddos lined up eating their hot dog dinners...fine dining as usual!!!
sarah and daddy being silly!

the huge surprise? uncle andy came home for mother's day weekend! mom and i had NO clue it was all going down...apparently we both shed a few tears when we first saw him! after surprising mom and having dinner with mom and dad, andy headed over to our house to surprise me too!!! it was a great way to start the weekend!
little jacob was easily entertained sitting in his high chair watching all the chaos!
amy and alison being silly!
the kids all took a spin on the elliptical...guess its good that SOMEBODY is using it :)
tim invited our neighbors over...we quickly made donna wear the sombrero!!!
drew had a boo-boo and miss mary made it all better!
all of us sitting outside enjoying the mild temperatures! it was such a perfect night!
we started our fun filled evening around 5 pm, so we were all tired out by 10 pm! we were such babies!!! we kept thinking it was SOOOOO late, but it really wasn't! uncle andy made the observation that my friends and i were REALLY old. he based this on the fact that all the moms got in the kitchen and cleaned for 20 minutes before they left! ha! i just think that's having good friends!!!

love at first bite...5.7

my silly little man was making the most hilarious faces one night while i was feeding him cereal...these pics are only 8 days into his spoon feeding experience. he was hamm-ing it up! he kept opening his mouth as wide as he possibly could and squinting his eyes up. i was laughing so hard...of course i had to run get the camera! i tried explaining the whole thing to daddy when he got home, but it didn't make any sense til i showed him the pictures! what a mess!!!

i couldn't narrow down the pictures any more than this...i know its overkill, but i think they are all too precious!!!
