Mackenzie's 6th Birthday!!!
We had cake and ice cream on her Birthday and had her party a couple weeks later.

She HAD to cut the cake all by herself, "becuse I'm six now mom!"
Yesterday she couldn't do it because she was still 5, but now that she's 6, she can do it!

The hat that she's wearing was from her teachr. She got to wear it all day at school that day because it was her birthday!


Tristan's First Baby Teeth

Tristan finally got his first two baby teeth on the bottom at 9 mo. old!!!
It was really hard to take pics of them but if you click on them to blow them up, you can see them!


I I really even need to comment on this one! You all know my daughter...judge for yourself!!!


Tristan being a big boy and drinking from a straw!
He's 8 mo. old here.
At this age he was trying to be like his Uncle Shannon and "Army Crawl" everywhere! He just couldn't figure out how to get on those knees.

Bikes, Blues, BBQ

Here we are on the side of the road in Fayetteville watching the Bikers parade down the street at Bikes, Blues & BBQ.


This is Mackenzie riding a motorcycle for the first time with her Daddo. He came up for Bikes, Blues &BBQ.


This right here is the reason Mackenzie won't feed her little brother, "way too messy mom."

Daddy and Tristan swinging.
Mackenzie collecting rocks.

They built a park right down the street from our house, so as soon as they got done with it, we went down there to play!!!


Mackenzie's tent is full of all her stuffed animals. Tristan had a blast in there!


Brad needed to fix a bottle for Tristan because he was being fussy so he asked Mackenzie to just hold him so he would calm down. By the time he got done fixing the bottle, Mackenzie had fallen asleep holding on to Tristan. So Brad gave him his bottle and he snuggled up with his sissy and found her hand to hold on to.


Tristan helping mommy with the laundry.
I had piled his clean clothes on the swing and he crawled over underneath it and proceeded to pull down each piece of clothing, one by one.

Our flower garen

This is our flower garden in the front of our house!!! Everything grew really well this summer. It's all about the dirt. We put in some good soil and mixed in some fertilizer. The plants were all cheap from Wal-Mart or given to us from friends and family and it all just took off!!! The tall plants with the yellow flowers that are in the back are Canna and they are as tall as I am!!!

Tristan Laughing

This video is so hilarious!!! We are always catching Mackenzie getting Tristan to laugh like crazy! Here she is "scaring" him with the kitten. (I need to point out that no kittens were injured in the making of this video!!!)


Awwwww....... pitiful!!!


Crawling around on the cold tile!!!


Some of my favorite black and whites of Tristan...

peek a boo



" Cutie!"


Tristan is desperately trying to crawl! He hasn't figured out how to get his knees coordinated with his arms. He'll pull himself forward with his arms and then roll around.

Mackenzie & Tristan

Mackenzie has something in her hand that Tristan wants!!!

Notice how Mackenzie has a hold of his shirt so he doesn't fall off the couch, what a loving sister!!!


Oh yes, gotta love the spaghetti noodles!!! As soon as I put a little scoop on his tray, he went to town!!!


Beautiful Evening Sky


I made Mackenzie feed Tristan just so I could get a picture of big sissy feeding her little brother! She wasn't too thrilled about it. She's not a big fan of the messiness involved in feeding a 7 month old!!! Although she did taste his cereal bites and decided that she really liked the banana flavored ones!!!


Hmmm, I wonder what Tristan is doing. All I see are feet and hands...

Oh, I see, he's playing with his blue rattle.

"Tristan, I see you peeking at me!"

"Hi little man!"

"Whatcha doin in there?"

"I'm having way too much fun with my rattle, mama!!!"
