I wonder where Ellie gets her posing from...
And have I mentioned that Gabbi Girl has grown a tap root down into my hip? She is the biggest mama's girl ever to be born!
Little bit fussy and even more clingy lately because I am guessing she has a new tooth coming in! She is snotty, drooly, and generally grouchy!
Here is my Sunday afternoon babysitter, giving up her time with friends on Superbowl Sunday to help me with my chillin.
Ok, this is a view from Staci's backyard. And see that BAH over there? It is ours!
West Monroe, where the kids are rednecks,
and sticks are their toys!
Ok, so I wanted to do another post mostly to show you how the "big boys" have grown. This is Nick and Hayden. Years ago, Nick would ride with Hayden up to St. Jude to see Jake. He has been a part of some of the most critical time of Hayden's life. I wonder if these boys will ever understand the impact of their friendship to the "big boys" during their brother's illness.
Same with Keelan.
Keelan made many a 5 hour trip to Memphis with me and the boys to visit Jake and to provide comradery to Hunter. They have been friends since they were less than a year old.
I love my "big boy" nephews. They are special to me, and I can't wait to live right next door to them.
This was the big kid crew. Cole, (middle) and Tyler (far left) were also a couple of guys who made a St. Jude run too.
They were advised to go out and dump the old Christmas trees in the pond. I suppose to draw in the fish? I don't know?
Back of the BAH! Coming right along, I'd say!
Ok, again. Redneck parties ALWAYS include bonfires!
Another shot of Ellie Sue and her buddy, Mr. Bo.
I am standing in Staci's back kitchen area and looking to the side at the BAH. It is a bit of a pulled in picture, so it is actually a little further away than it appears.
I thought this was pretty sweet. This is one of Hunter' s best pals, Jordan, and he had no idea I was coming over. He was in the back of the truck, holding Maddi as if he was glad to have her part of the pack.
I love that Hunter and Hayden's friends love these little girls!
Ok, so, I will try to sustain from any more Saints posts this week. It will be hard. To say that our state is a bit cookoo over our win would be an understatement. I mean, EVERYWHERE you went today, from grocery store to convenience store, to restaurants, to PT clinics (!!), there was nothing but black and gold and WHO DAT's! We are so excited about the win. Sorry to you Indy people. We needed this. Our state really needed a dose of "good"!
