june's bestie the bunny.

june's very best friend this spring has been the easter bunny.
she was giddy about him, talked about him for days
 and cracked us up when we plopped her down next to him.
sweet little innocent angel child, i love your excitement
 for life and love of furry creatures. . . 
no matter how creepy they might be.

ranch days.

we are excited every year about our annual trip to the
 ranch with all of andy's old college roommates and their families.
it just so happens that the wives of the
 group are all best buds too so our weekend together really is the best.
such a great tradition to look forward to every year.
this might have been our best year yet.
we had a taste of life in the country and the city,
the perfect combo, if you ask me.
the boys worked cattle one morning while us girls
 and the babies got ready to head into town.
after a quick stop to check on our cattle hands 
we headed out to let the babies run around 
their college of they-don't-have-a-choice ACU.
the tiny future wildcats felt quite at home, so much so that us
 moms couldn't even snap any pictures due
 to their running all over the place.
after some yummy bbq we made it back in time
 for naps and woke up in time for a quiet evening
 of stock tank splashing, seed spittin' and the best cookout ever.
thank you rock ridge for the memories.
we all can't wait for next year. . . when we will double in size again!

baby loves.

by now i'm sure you've heard our exciting news
 about our second little bundle
 of pure joy that is headed our way this fall!
we still can't imagine what life will be like with two
 little humans under one roof but we hear that it will
 double all of the wonderful that has come with our first tiny human.
this is our first picture of the four of us, how wild!
no worries, june's just holding the pregnancy test.
she would not for the life of her let go of it, so sanitary.
she's already so attached to her little brother or sister. :)
 andy and i talk very very often about the love that we feel for june.
we never knew about this kind of love until her.
we can't wait to feel it all over again for this baby.
 we thank the Lord for this incredible opportunity to raise these children.
goodness knows that we've already made a million mistakes
 with june but we sure are trying to instill in her
 a little heart that loves, knows, honors and serves her maker.
i know that she is going to be the very best big sister.
those two words; big sister, quite honestly scare me a little.
we are so thankful for all of your sweet words and
 love that you have already shown to our second born. 
our hearts are growing daily for this little life that we all can't wait to squeeze.

"before I formed you in the womb
 I knew you, 
before you were born 
I set you apart; 
I apointed you as a prophet to the nations." jeremiah 1:5

love day.

hello world!
it seems that a whole lot has happened around here since i last saw you over two months ago.
the last time blogger was opened i was working on our valentine's day post.
wowsa that was ago.
my mommy memory mind just can't sleep at night any
 longer knowing that days and special memories are
 going by without being properly documented. . .
 so i am making a promise to try to get back in the blogging saddle.
i know one day i will be so glad i did.
so get ready for lots and lots of catching up!
our valentine's day this year was very sweet.
our little love bug wasn't feeling her very best but it was
 still a day that left our hearts feeling very full.
we woke up to lots of fun surprises from our #1 guy.
he sure does know how to spoil his girls!
we love to love him and couldn't wait for our valentine to get home.
junie also finally got to rip into her vday care package from tootie and bapa.
talk about spoiled. :)
we are way excited for spring so she can
 wear all of these new clothes!
somehow my mom always manages to find the very best stuff.
i never can figure out how she does it especially
 since we shop at the same places.  
this little elmo phone is case in point.
talk about true love!
thank y'all again!
our day was also made complete by all of our treats from friends near and far.
the cutest card from emma.
the sweetest treats from jackson.
the cutest card and most adorable book ever from clarke.
valentine's from little buddies are what this day's all about!
we love each one of you.
i was crossing my fingers on valentine's day eve that andy
 would send us some strawberries like last year.
like always, he never disappoints.
yummy yum i wish we still had some of these!
i had wanted to make a big to-do for andy when he got home
 from work but as most of my good intentions go, things
just weren't coming together for us that day.
thankfully our cousins from down the street happened to
stop by that afternoon and lend a helping hand for me
 to at least get something fun up for andy's homecoming.
thanks benj!
the rest of our evening was spent racing around
 trying to make cookies that were a major flop, eating a
 heart shaped pizza, opening more gifts and just loving on our love bug.
i feel so much better knowing this is here for us to see,
now on to lots more fun. 
sit back and enjoy the ride down memory lane with me.
