Are You Ready For Some Football?!

Brady started his very first football season and seems to be enjoying himself so far. His coaches are awesome and they really put them to work all the while being patient knowing they are just learning the game. Brady is number 15 and plays flanker, tight end, and something else I can't remember. Football is the one sport I really haven't taken the time to truly understand, but with 5 boys, I'm thinking I may have to re-prioritize my thinking on this. HA! Brady has had a fun season so far and has had a few really good tackles that have made it possible for the touchdowns to be made and some oh so close interceptions, not to mention a couple of tackles where's he's been at the bottom of the pile. Made my mama's heart do flip flops let me tell you. HA! It's been a blast cheering you on Brady! Mommy always knew your name would sound great screaming it over a football field! Hee. Hee. Love you bunches my boy. 









Glasses Galore

These two boys joined Brady in their need for glasses and we think they're pretty cute to boot. They wear them like champs most of the time and even Sully is super proud of his scholastic look. Maybe having a big brother wear them helps out!  Now if I can just find Sully's today....Mmmmmm.


Ava's First Bath


I cried in shock for just a second and then I was out like a light enjoying the familiar warmth of water.

I could've soaked all night if Mommy had let me.

All warm in my owl towel!





These newborn clothes are so much fun. The last two baby boys were  bigger so they didn't wear  newborn very long at all and I didn't have much either not knowing what sex we were having so it was fun to purchase a few things that actually fit so much better than 0-3 months at first.


All ready for bed Ya'll!

A Houseful

Grandma Joni came to meet me! 
My mama got this rose bush from a dear friend and she's already planted it in the flowerbeds hoping it will survive the winter. We'll see come spring!

Mama got this pretty bouquet from her church family.  Isn't it darling with that bottle detail? It's sitting in a bottle instead of the vase. I love it! Great idea! 

Mama remember most of the signatures from each visitor. This will be framed with Ava's going home picture and join the others on the wall of fame! :)

Dear, dear friends, Don and Roxy

Leanna is our babysitter, home helper, and an amazing friend to me as well. 

Trisha, Trisha, she's our gal, if she can't paint it, no one will! :) I don't know where that chime came from, but she painted Ava's nursery furniture and did a superb job. Pics coming soon! 

More snuggles with Grandma who stayed and pitched in for a few days! Thanks again Grandma!  We sure do love you and appreciate the freezer meals you made for us!

A mixture of happy and sad little people. It was sad to say goodbye to Grandma!

Home Sweet Home



Coming home is always a joyous day. Someone once told me their homes truly felt like a home when they brought a baby home from the hospital. Well, we didn't have to wait long for that to happen! 

Greeted by the boys!

And one toothless sis! 

Keilah Grace just loves to hold her new sister! It's the first baby she's taken a super big interest in. I can always count on my KG!

Bravin' up!

We got a smile! Yay! 

 Miss Ava Joy in her very special jammies from an even more special friend, Lindsay.
You can order your own from her etsy shop at blueyodeybotique. Just search it out on the etsy site! She makes gobs more and it's all to die for!
Mommy's new neighbor brought this monogrammed beauty over for Miss Ava. 




 We've been spoiled with all sorts of homemade cuteness. Look at thus fun blanket and  the sweet  monogrammed burpie!

I must say all the pink and girly fluff suits me just fine. :)
