These two... Cole and Bailey are a mess! This is at Cole Howard's birthday party. I'm glad my boys have a cousin that lives right across the street they can grow up with.

Gingerbread Man

We went to Memaw's and she helped us make our annual gingerbread man. This time the gingerbread man was for Brie's class since they had learned about it the past week!

Where did the time go???

Brie was excited to cheer for Bubba at his first Jamboree, even though he didn't get to play since he is a 6th grader!
I can't believe that Brent is already in middle school and playing football! Seems like just yesterday that he was starting Kindergarten! I thought I was ready for this football thing until I showed up to watch practice are there are practically grown men out there in 8th grade!

Kindergarten Graduation

Today is actually kind of sad.. my last baby graduated from Kindergarten! I can't believe that 6 years has went by so quickly, seems like yesterday she was a baby! I am so sad she isn't a toddler anymore, but excited for Brie and how she loves school, meeting new friends, and learning! (Let's just hope that she continues to enjoy learning!)
Tomorrow will be even sadder as my first graduates from BES from 5th grade and prepares to head to middle school!

Acting shy... Brie loves Tanner!

We love Mrs. Jamie Hodge!

singing a super cute song!

It's Softball time!!!

Brie loves to play softball, this was our 2nd game of the season. I hope her love for the game continues for many years to come!

Easter Egg Hunt

Brie has waited all week for her Easter egg hunt! First at 10 we headed to church for our annual hunt, even though I have been sick and in the bed with strep and sinus infection but knew I had to suck it up for her sake.

Then we stopped by the BHS Easter Festival on the way home, where she happily took a picture with MarySelle and a bunny, and her brother's hopped on it.

What I love...

I can't even describe how much I LOVE these kids!

Who know going to eat lunch with her could make her so happy?

Happy with their new helmets!

Brie with her "prize" for getting Xrays at Dr. Klug's while scheduling to have her tonsils out, she is not so sure about having them out. She said she wants to keep them and that she is okay with being sick and missing school!

Getting Ready

silly girl...

Daddy showing how to curl your hair?

Getting ready for church on Sunday mornings ofcourse is always a big rush with 5 people!

One of my favorites

My children love the fireplace! After playing outside in the snow, they love to come in and have hot chocolate and warm their feet up by the fireplace!

Pray for Lucy

Lucy will be in surgery at LeBonheur most of the day to remove 3 tumors from her brain and 2 from her spine, the diagnosis is medulloblastoma. I can't believe how fast this happened, within the last 48 hours. Kate posted this am, that "it happened in the blink of eye."
It's unreal to me, I can't imagine what that family is going through, but Kate is strong and is a very strong believer so I know God will take care of that family and lead them through this.
We have to believe and put our trust in God.
We aren't supposed to ask God why, but I have trouble with that when I think of sweet Lucy and so many others. But.. my faith is strong and I know God will take care of Lucy.

A Quick update

A quick update with pictures from my phone! We have been so crazy busy, and I've been just tired and lazy and my blog is slacking! So here's pictures of what is currently happening in the Howard household!

Bailey and his hair he refuses to cut
Bailey's size 8 1/2 new shoes that fit me perfectly, he is 10!
Brent's new size mens 9 shoes that are too big for me, he is 11!

A quick trip to the park after basketball games to play while Brent & Jason spent an afternoon at the boat show. I'd say the park was much more fun.

Duck Hunting

Brent, Bailey, & William
goofy Bailey

A couple of weeks ago towards the end of January the boys went for Juvenile weekend duck hunting with Jason and William Lea. Ofcourse they had lots of fun!

Another broke bone???

Boys will be boys I guess and while Jason, Bailey, and Brent were playing around wrestling in the floor Brent somehow pushed himself off wrong with his hand sideways and broke the middle bone in his palm. So now he's in a cast for 4-6 weeks which means he will miss the first two baseball tournaments in March which he is not very happy about.
What a great Valentine's Day present to get a cast! HA

Happy 6th Birthday Brie!

I can't believe this little girl is already 6 years old. Where did the time go??? It doesn't seem like it was that long ago she was a little bitty baby! Now she's in Kindergarten? I miss those baby days for sure, but I love how as Brie is getting older her little personality blossoms. Girls so so much different from boys, a breakdown can occur at any moment, and temper tantrams do happen. However, I wouldn't change it for the world.
This year Brie decided that she wanted to have a skating birthday party at Munford Park & Rec. and the theme would be Minnie Mouse. She also insisted that we make her birthday cake, which I think turned out pretty well and we had a good time doing so!
Lots of friends turned out, even though we missed many due to the big snow that was scheduled to come in around the time of the party. Luckily it held off until everyone was leaving! It was a great day!
To my precious Brie-
You will never know how much we love you! You and your brothers are our world. You bring a smile to my face everyday and I love your caring nature. You care about everyone and I hope that you continue to do so.

Putt Putt Fun

Christmas Break fun at Putt Putt golf. After a game of laser tag with the Owen's, Davis's, and many more, Brent & Bailey wanted to do the obstacle course, it was pretty cool.
