The boys.....

Today the boys and I went and checked out the ducks at the park. We were so excited, to see the new addition to the park. Darling little baby ducklings. Lane plopped down on the shore and just watched them. As the school year comes to an end, I can't believe my long days with both boys are numbered. I know that Carter will only be 1/2 day kindergarden, but it is so sad to think about. I wish all 4 could stay little forever.

Handy Hubby!

What would I do without Clint? Today I was doing my errands and I realized my brakes were making a weird noise, So I went to Shucks and bought new brake pads. My Man is so handy, he got home from work and had them changed in about 45 mins. I ask myself when will he stop amazing me?:)

Handy helper Lane!

When will I figure this thing out?....

Ok, I know I posted my weekend all backwards. I will get better at this thing someday! I hope anyways.:)

Sunday = Fun at the beach!!....

We headed down to Ocean Shores for the day on Sunday. We piled in my car and the Jeep. Boy in the jeep and Girls in my car. It was so much fun. We had photo shoot on the beach. My Mariah is so naughty....She never wants to smile nice!All the kids were little troopers.
Funny Faces Just the parents...I was excited about this picture. I don't think I have a picture of just the 4 of us. We are always the one taking the pictures Jenny and Me
Lane, Jordan and Me.

Sami Jo and Lane. This is one of my favorite pictures. Lane loves Sami.
The boys, Carter and Cody

Who said that Lane is not a Newborn? He was so cold!

Princess Jordan
Kaylie and Mariah
Lane lovin the jeep, once again!
Princess Mariah

Saturday = 2 princess parties....

Me, my girls and Lane started off at our first party at 4:00 in Everett. My niece Mary turned 4. I can't believe it, I feel like she was just born. I really think, she is a real princess!
She had a amazing Barbie cake. Made out of a real barbie.
She chose a great place. She is a gymnastic girl, so she wanted to share all her great moves with all her friends and cousins.
My girls! (Sorry about the bad pictures, I think my camera got wet at the races.)

I think one of Lane's favorite parts was the water fountain, see the wet shirt. Oh, He wanted his pants off, I couldn't figure out why, I think he thought he looked like Mary, He thought his onesie was a leotard.

There was a awesome foam pit, Lane loved it. He would jump off the diving board right into the pit. No fear!

After the long drive back, we caught the last part of the 2nd party. Clint and Carter were there the whole time to enjoy the BBQ. We got to see the presents though. Miss
Hailey Jo turned 2.
There is nothing better than her little lips. She opened some shoes from us and got so excited. "Shooes"!! To cute!

Happy Birthday Girls, We love you!!

Busy, busy weekend!

We started out our memorial weekend at the races. Just as we were pulling in, it started to rain. My little cousin Brandon was racing his Jr. Dragster. We were so bummed though, they ended up calling it. Rained out. Lane thought that he was big time. He loved sitting in it and pretending to drive.

It was gonna be his first time racing, so he was pretty bummed too. His dad let him cruise around and test it out, so he could get the fell of it.
It looks so sweet.

Even Niece Hailey joined the fun. She and Her Dad surprised us and came, Always a treat.:)

Sometimes being the baby of the family, can be such a drag:)

Ok, I am two weeks behind....

These pictures were from last weekend...We always hang out with my cousin Jenny and her family. We always are at their house. I like to call them home bodies. So last friday I got them to come over and have a BBQ at our house. The kids had so much fun. They came in Kevin's jeep, Lane likes to call it "My Jeep" He thinks that it is his. Well, He hung out in it the whole evening. He was in heaven.:)
Jordan, Cody and Carter played trucks and motorcycles. Carter was just so excited to play with Cody at our house and share his toys with him.
It was so hot, one of those 90 degree days.
Cody was a crack up! Playing horses with the girls. So Fun!
Thanks for the fun time Lawsons!

Happy Mother's Day!!

I feel so blessed to have 4 wonderful kids. I am honored to be Mariah, Jordan, Carter and Lane's Mom. My life is filled with so much laughter and love because of them. I love that they keep me on my toes, I love that Mariah wants to be with me every breaking minute, has to go everywhere I go. She is exactly how I was with Mom. I love that Jordan is my little Diva, She is always thinking of others before herself. Making other happy brings her happiness. I love that Carter is my wild boy, yet the sweetest one. He is always the first one to tell me "Good morning!" and "Mommy, You are so beautiful". I love that Lane is my "Newborn", So I like to call him. He is the sunshine in our house. He makes us all smile. We all love to watch him grow and learn new things. I love being their mother. Each one of them makes our family complete.

Every Mothers day I always have to honor My Mother. She set an example for me and I hope to be half the mother that she was.

Happy Mothers day!

I feel so accomplished....

I have been doing a lot of painting.....first was the living room. I have never been brave to paint anything with bright or dark colors. So I finally got the urge and did it. I am so excited...I got all our new family pictures up. I just love it. It makes our living room look so cozy.:)

Well after painting all the living room, and the hall I loved the dark brown so much that I painted our bedroom too. 2 walls are the dark and the other 2 are tan/kakai color. Next is the kitchen....wish me luck.:)
