If you follow Tara, then you know that she and Drew revealed last night that they are having a baby girl!!!!!!!!! I could not be more excited for Olivia Mae to get here!!! I have dreamed of my sisters' babies for years and cannot wait to be their aunt!! The kids are pumped and Shane is excited to have another baby girl to spoil! Not going to lie, I have been shopping already :)! The party was fabulous and you can see tons of great pics of Tara's masterpiece here on her blog...
I have prayed for this baby before she was conceived and now before she is born. Livie Mae is such a blessing and I cannot wait to be her Aunt!!!!!!
School is out!!! Yay for longer days, later bed times and no schedule!!! The kids ended the year fabulously and we could not be more proud!!!
Last days of school for each kid...
Lots of summer fun!!!
Sitting in the closet waiting out the weather :(
Taught the kids Texas Hold 'em :)
Even got in a date night :)
We had one rough night - Bree flew head first off her bike and busted her head open in two spots :(. Shane was traveling and I was stuck in traffic trying to get home from work so Nonna was the rock star that handled it!! Bree is much better now and handling it like a boss :)
Recital weekend was a couple weeks ago. This my FAVORITE dance event of the year and it was taken to a whole new level this year because sweet baby girl Bree danced too!! I have to say, I was holding my breath because I was not sure she would actually do it. She has always watched Claire on stage and loves dance class, but I was nervous. Saturday was dress rehearsal and she blew my mind when she got up there and danced her heart out!!! It was another one of those moments that my heart about burst out of my chest!!! She loved it!!! So needless to say, she did so well at the recital and we were all beaming with pride over our not so little girl anymore!!! The best part? She LOVED it!!! Everyone was dying as she danced in the finale and was jumping up and down and having the best time :). Claire rocked the stage per usual and even after all these years, she still makes me cry when I watch her on stage. She continues to grow every year and we could not be more proud!!! Now let's get to the big hair, too much make up pictures that just slay me :).....LOVE these kids!!!
