Happy Monday

Spring is here.

Apparently, nobody got the message. Cause it's still crazy cold out there.
 And my house is covered in baby dolls, basketball jerseys and tortilla chip crumbs.
 This guy is responsible for the jerseys and crumbs.
 I might just forgive him.
 Happy Monday, friends!

Walker's Hair Disaster

I have totally been MIA. Sorry I left you hanging. Especially that little part where I hinted at Walker's hair then stopped posting altogether. That was not cool.

Without further ado, Walker pre-hair catastrophe:
 Then this happened.
"No, I didn't cut my hair."

Oh, really.
 That's crazy. Because something looks a little different to me. 
GASP. The back is especially interesting.
STOP taking pictures, MOM?
Totally wanted to laugh and cry at the same time.

We all know what Wren did.
Even George noticed.
Why did he cut it, you may ask? Because basketball players have short hair. 

What am I going to do with this child?
Of course, we did what any responsible parents would do.

We let him go to school, church, the grocery and friend's houses with his crazy hair.

We are mean like that.

Then we finally got it cut for realz.
They did a pretty good job, considering what they were working with.
In other news, Walker & Lee went to the SEC Tournament in Atlanta.
 I stayed home with Wren & George. 
Hope to resume more regular posts. Till then... 

Happy Spring!

Pray for Paxton

I am writing to ask you to take a few moments to pray for a precious little boy, Paxton, and for his family as he was diagnosed today with Burkitt's Lymphoma Stage 4.

My friend (Jamie), her husband (Cheslee), their daughter (Ansley) and their beloved son are facing a shocking diagnosis. Fortunately, they know that we have Father who created Paxton and cares deeply for his body and for his mind and heart. 
They also know that our God is able to heal and to bring supernatural peace in even the most desperate situations. And as any of us could imagine, I am sure that despair and fear are trying to creep in.

So join me.

Pray against despair. Pray for comfort. Pray for wisdom. And most of all, pray for complete healing to come over this sweet little one's body so he can get out of the hospital and get back to living a life full of joy and adventure with his mama, daddy and little sister.

He heals the brokenhearted And binds up their wounds.
Psalm 147:3

Missed You

I have missed y'all. So has this guy. 
Been running around trying to stay sane. Pretty sure this precious little love is trying to make every hair in my head either 1) turn grey or 2) fall out. Help me, Lord.
More to come soon (including pictures of a major hair catastrophe that happened at our casa tonight).

Have a great week:).

Haircut

This boy got a {minor} haircut today. I would be lying if I said I was excited about it. The longer, the better, for me. But it was becoming a visibility issue (so says daddy), so there you go.

Took this pic right before we left so I would remember this length. Hope to be back here by summer;).

Wren & George

Oh, George. He had no idea what he was getting himself into.
 Run, George, Run!

VDay Partay

What a fun little weekend.

Starting with bribing these two with marshmallows to get them to take a picture together before school on Friday.

Bribery by food. So wrong, I know. Promise to never ever do it again.
Walker's class had the sweetest little VDay party and I was excited to take pics at the photo booth. 
 Seriously, kid. Stop looking 15.
 His preschool class has been such a blessing. Five days a week with Mrs. Lyons and Mrs. Dentinger have helped prepare him for kindergarten this fall (cue the sob-fest now).
I also had a romantic date with my love downtown at Harvest Cafe and a super fun time going with Emily to the UK-Florida game.

Hope you and your loves had a great weekend.

Poor George

My house is smother, covered, chunked in glitter.
I think it's stuck to my eyeball. And I already found a few pieces in George's water bowl.
 Speaking of George...
God love him.

Happy Valentines Eve:).

Claypool Valentines Day Party

We had a sweet time this morning at this girl's house.
 Ruby Kate and Shelby's super festive mama hosted a Valentines playdate.

This is Ruby Kate's cousin, Tate. They remind me a lot of Warren & Maggie Sue - they are more like sisters than cousins.
And can you please take a gander at Sam? Those blue eyes will put you in a trance!
 Of course, Wren had a wonderful time and managed to consume 10+ donut holes.
 Reese McClain was there looking like the little princess she is:).
Getting this many preschoolers in a picture together was hilarious.
 CB and Milly sweetness.
 Eli is just a hoot. I was trying to get him to look at me and you know what worked? The CATS cheer. Yes, Warren, you can date this guy when you are 25...
Hope you had a spectacular donut-hole-kinda-day:).

A Boy and His First Dog

It's safe to say that Walker & George have bonded.
Walker loves to rub his belly.
 Feed him treats when I'm not looking.
Draw pictures of the beach and plan future trips together.
 And George returns the affection.
Oh, Georgie. You are so loved.
 Rest assured that little girls love their doggies too:).
