Aiden: First Day of Second Grade

I have been terrible at blogging lately. Or for a long time actually. We have been in the midst of finishing our basement which is pretty amazing. We love having an extra place to hang out while the upstairs stays much cleaner! We added another bedroom (which is really a playroom) and bathroom, a bar, and another family room to our home. Besides on less than amazing contractor bailing, everything is amazing (in great thanks to my brother)!

Anyway, on to the point of this post! My biggest little started SECOND GRADE this year! Holy Moly where has time gone?!



Friends over the years!

Our next big project!

We are so excited to finally be finishing our basement! When we first built our home we knew it was something we had wanted to do but rook the advice of many professionals to wait until the ground surrounding our foundation settled. We are so thankful we did because we had to deal with flooding issues with Richmond for the first three years until they finally put a retaining wall and French drain in our back window well. Plus, we get to design everything how we want without being put into the 'Richmond" box! They are starting tomorrow and I cannot wait to share the progress!

Here are the inspiration photos that we gave to our contractor:






And lastly, we bought this bad boy from the Restoration Hardware Outlet this past week, and I am SO excited about it!


We are so excited to be expanding our house!

Aiden: Last day of first grade!

This dude! From sight words last year to chapter books this year.... He is simply a growing machine! Not to mention pretty amazing at football as well!



And our yearly funny face collage continues....

End of first grade.

End of Kindergarten.

End of preschool. 

I cannot believe in a week and a half this kid will be seven. My goodness, time flies when you are having fun & as busy as it gets!





Luke: Last day of preschool!

I cannot believe my little Luke man finished his first year of preschool. He has grown up so fast!

A unicorn party for a magical TWO year old.

How on God's green earth is my baby girl almost two? These have been two of the most girly filled years. The days have certainly been long, but my how time has flown! I so vividly remember her coming into this world screaming bloody murder and NOT calming down. Such a Gemini. Although she turned out to be a very easy baby, cuddly toddler, she definitely has a little dose of fire inside of her. She loves purple, telling her brothers they are naughty, actually tattling on anyone, and the girl LOVES unicorns. Or, "coins," as she calls them.
