Life Lately

     I feel like time is moving so fast that I can't even keep up. I heard once in grad school that the perception of time is in fact faster as you get older because nothing is new to you anymore. I can't even begin to think how fast time is going to fly bye with the coming years.

Cam and I got to watch Tatum almost every afternoon the past two weeks and it was awesome. On Tuesday afternoon she came home with us and got to make dinner and crawl around with the pups. It was fun to see into the future for a quick bit. I loved having her little foot and hand prints added to my hardwoods and stainless steel fridge. She was quite the help in the kitchen with Cam and she enjoyed talking to the dogs through the screen door. Deuce still doesn't really care for the babies, but Griffey is all about them and it is just about the cutest thing ever! He just loves them. He doesn't bite and gives tons (sometimes too many) kisses and Tatum seems to love him too.

This past weekend my little sister went to her senior prom and I was able to take pictures of her and her friends. She had her hair done by my friend who happened to do my hair and make up for my wedding! It is always fun to catch up with old friends and I was glad to have been able to go with my sister and mom. Kennedy was absolutely beautiful and I can't believe she is growing up so much. She has grown into a beautiful young lady. She makes us all so proud and we can't wait to see where God takes her.

Cam and I are getting more work done on the house. We are finally drying out here, we had about 12 out of 14 days of straight downpours. Yes, the downpours and storms have been awesome for the lakes, but not so much for our muddy backyard. But, we can now see the lake from the dock across the street and it's awesome! Now if we can get rid of the swamp and get our mosquito population down I can enjoy more than 2 minutes outside. We not only have tons of mosquitos they are like monster mosquitos... huge people! We should have all of our top cabinets painted by this weekend and we plan to hang them to see what they look like and then sand the base and get that going! I am so excited!

We also plan on working on our flowerbeds and weed situation. We are wanting to put in a vegetable garden and need to work on the existing base and add some fence around it because well dogs. Griffey is a big fan of standing in the middle of the flower beds so I can only imagine how much he would love a garden of vegetables. Our pear trees have pears on them and its been fun to watch them grow! I hope they turn out I am really looking forward to making jam with my gram! :)

And pictures of Maddyn because she's too beautiful not to share! I snapped these about three weeks ago at a family dinner. Those two babies are growing up too fast!
