Meet Bella

We dog sat Jingle Bells for my friend Holly earlier in July. We loved her. She was such a good dog, and we were sad for her to leave! Holly offered to give us Bells a few weeks later! Grant and I decided she was a perfect fit for our family! We surprised the girls and they were beyond thrilled!!! We eventually started calling her Bella!!!

Pearly Whites

Ansley went to the dentist for the first time in July! She did great! We love Amy! Ansley wasn't to excited to see the dentist, but at least she got her teeth cleaned!

The Pampered Life!

Mom came and helped with the party. We split the girls into 2 groups. One group played spin the nail polish, and the other received pedicures! They had fun!

Spa Party Time!

Addison had wanted a sleepover party for a long time, so for her 7th B-day, we decided to have one!  She wanted to do "spa things" so we went with that theme.I bought the printables from Etsy, here
 Sign on the front door on a wreath welcoming everyone....
 I set up the food table and a table for the girls in the dining room.  
 I ended up finding the paper products at The Dollar Tree.  I had bought some at Target, but took them back for the less expensive ones!Here is the food table when the girls arrived.  We ordered pizza, but the favorite was the chocolate fountain!  We had cupcakes, cake, and fruit and pretzels for the fountain. 
 Addison's cake was precious!  Sanctified Cakes did an awesome job! 

 The goodie bags...Most things were received during the party...flip flops for a project, an eye mask,and a bottle of nail polish.
 There were 7 girls.  I limited the number invited, and it worked great!  
 Happy Birthday to the Birthday Girl! 
 Putting ribbons on flip flops! 
 Dress up for a photo booth! 
 Gift Time! 
 The next morning, the girls decorated a pillow case for Addison to keep! 
 Breakfast time...
 Sweet Girls!  
I've got more pictures of the party activities to come!  I think they all had a great time!

7 year old celebration

We have a 7 year old. I can't believe it! Addison's birthday was July 13. She wanted to go to Magic Springs, so the 4 of us spent the day there! We had a blast! The girls both love rides and water, and I love that Magic Springs has both!
We left MS and had dinner at The Purple Cow. Addison couldn't wait for them to sing to her! She had a perfect day, and we enjoyed celebrating 7 years with her!

Fun Friday the 5th

On Friday, we got up and had breakfast.  The kiddos ate outside.  The weather was just perfect the whole weekend!  The kids enjoyed playing!  After a short little nap for Isaac, we headed to the Crater of Diamonds Water Park. It was perfect for our children.  They all had a blast!

Porter and Ansley had a big time playing and just being silly! 

This boy is crazy about his daddy!  Such a sweet baby!  

Porter and his daddy had a big time!

This little cutie loved splashing around! 

Addison had a big time.  She enjoyed the bigger slides, but also had fun helping the little ones! 

These 4 kiddos have my heart!  Such sweet cousins!  I love Ben so much and I'm so proud of the man he is.  He is an amazing father, and these 2 boys are so lucky to have him!  I LOVE that they are calling us Aunt Gina and Uncle Grant.  Porter also will call Addison "sissy" sometimes!  It is so funny!
