All you need is LOVE!

The kids had double the Valentines Day parties this year! Which means double the cards and double the candy!!

This is what Turner gave his teachers at school!
One of the things the kids love the most is their dogs!

This is what Turner made for mommy & daddy at school

One of the activities I did at dinner on Valentines Day with the kids what ask them (mainly Turner) what they loved: Some of his highlights:

Star Wars, Jesus, cooking with daddy, awesome boys & beautiful girls, Idia, playing with Keegan, Kathy, dinosaurs, trains, Jordan and mommy!

15 months of blessings

Tomorrow our little princess will be 15 months old! Her personality is just as beautiful as she is on the outside.

Her sweet and laid back spirit is just like "K's"

Lydia smiles ALL THE TIME!!

She loves playing with anything that is Turners! Her favorite toys include balls, books, cars, baby dolls, blocks, and her baby stroller
She's got long-lean legs that are good for running around and around the house! She's going to be fast like her brother. If I turn my back for a second, she now can climb the stairs in 5 seconds flat! And giggles all the way up

She likes to color, take bubble baths and play outside. Especially if Turner will give her a ride in his wagon or jeep! She's talking up a storm! Her favorite words include daddy, momma, dat (that), more, milk, tank you (thank you), and ball ~She signs more and milk thanks to her big brother

She loves to dance, wear bows & head bands, clap her hands to music, give her daddy kisses, play with her Turner, love on Mercy & Lexus and EAT!

Boy does this little lady like to eat.

Her favorite foods are bananas, mango, raisins, strawberries, grapes, chicken, pop corn, shrimp, vanilla pudding, bread, spaghetti, peas, and blue berries

Lydia you are the perfect addition to our family! Your smile lights up a room and your eyes sparkle & make our hearts melt. I love watching you play with Turner - you have so much love for him! Jesus loves you sweet little girl and so do your mommy and daddy!

One of our favorite activities is baking cookies...we usually do it at least once a week (and I wonder why I've gained 10 lbs in a year-HA) Turner loves loves loves cookies, raw, steamy hot right out of the oven, and even when they are stale and a week old! Doesn't matter to him~they are all delicious!

Sis on the other hand isn't near as fond of them as her brother is. She'd be just as happy with some frozen mangoes or fresh strawberries! But she does enjoy licking the chocolate off her sweet brown fingers


They're almost all clean

I think our love bug Turner is going to be a chef like his daddy! He loves helping in the kitchen! Especially when he can "taste" the food to make sure it's ok to serve!

Can't keep our hands off each other!

Lately Lydia & Turner just can't seem to keep their hands off each other (in a good way) It completely makes this mommy the happiest mommy in the universe!

Nothing beats the kids lovin on each other. Now they still have their moments of hitting and pushing but it seems that lovin is out numbering the other~PRAISE JESUS~!

Turner is constantly telling Lydia she is so beautiful and he loves her so much!
And sis loves to snuggle with her big bubba!

I have a feeling he's going to be pretty protective of sis

Turner was having a melt down because he couldn't get the key out of his Jeep. Lydia could sense his frustration and so gently reached over and patted his back!!! That quickly fixed the problem

I pray they always love each other and are best friends!
