This sweets toppers display is just too tempting for little Wynnie! Fortunately, she has not broken any of the jars....yet! 

Aunt Jamie made the girls shirts to wear at Hayden's games! Layne's says "Hayden's Biggest Fan" and Wynnies says, "Hayden's Littlest Fan". I am just in love with them!! Thank you so much!! 

Aunt September got Hayden a science kit for her birthday. The other day we did our first science experiment. Fizz Frenzie. 

We got to see how citric acid and baking soda interacted with warm water vs cold water. 

The girls can not wait to do our next experiment! 

Daddy rented this "toy" the other day so that he could dig out part of the hillside to make room for a storage shed for his crawlspace supplies. 

What a sweet guy....sent me flowers just because! 

Oh yes, Layne the little fashionista! She picked out this entire outfit! 

The girls were playing with some zoo animals on Saturday. Wynnie was more interested in eating them!

Wynnie enjoying a lollipop....she ended up getting SO sticky and nasty!!

Our little kitty, ladybug, and Super Girl! 

A little kitty nose and whiskers! 

Sunday morning Hayden, Layne and I got up super early to go pick Whitney up and head to volunteer for the Atlanta Marathon. Whit thought that it would help inspire and motivate us for our marathon in TWO WEEKS! She fixed the girls hot cocoa and snacks! 

We stood around and told the cars to slow down and cheered on the runners. 

Layne would scream with a high pitched scream so that she could sounds like a whistle. It was loud! 

The best sight of the day!! 

We carved pumpkins on Sunday night. Wynnie enjoyed eating the seeds more than anything! 

Searching for seeds.

So gross! 

Really really gross!! 

What about the actual pumpkin....how does that taste?! 

Monkey see....monkey do! 

How about the cotton from Q-tips?!

Yesterday we went to the doctor for Hayden's 7 year check up and Wynnie's 18 month check up. It was a long wait and Wynnie had a meltdown :) Wynnie ended up with 4 shots and Layne and Hayden got the flu vaccine mist in the nose. Everyone is doing well, growing well, and staying healthy. 

Wynnie being crazy the other day at Wendy's! She is such an entertainer. 

We went out to eat the other night and the girls found this blank wall as we were walking back to the car. Time for shadow dancing!! 

Sarah got in on it too! 

Hayden at Wendy's. 

Nothing better than a frosty and fries!! 

The girls and I did a little shopping for Aunt September the other day. We put it all in a box and shipped it off to Florida. It's supposed to arrive today. We can't wait to hear how she likes all of the cheer you up goodies that we got her! 

The was taken when I got back from my 4 mile run last week. I have been off from running for 3.5 weeks due to injury-doctor's orders! It felt great to be back. Minor shin pain. Since then I have gone 7 1/2 miles. The pain is manageable but still there. I am really praying that I can work on my endurance and be able to run the marathon in 3 1/2 weeks!! Doctor said that running on my shin won't cause any permanent damage so that's a green light to me!  

Fishing while we were on vacation with the Lehman's and Collinsworth's in North Carolina last week. Micah was a great fisherman! He even used this fish to almost catch a HUGE fish. It was so big that it broke the line when he was reeling it in! 

I took Layne down to fish one morning and she caught one all by herself!! 

Last Sunday I was supposed to run a half marathon with Whit, but the doctor suggested that I not do it....so I didn't. So, instead we drove down to ATL to cheer her on! It was emotional and hard but I loved seeing her at mile 6 and then at the finish. 

Heading to the airport to drop Sep off and then out of town to NC for the week. 

Wynnie enjoying the bathtub in the bathroom of the place that we stayed. 

This really did happen on the last play of practice the other night at the school! 

Even Wynnie knows that her blankie STINKS and needs a wash! 

We took cupcakes to school on Tuesday during Hayden's birthday week. We even took her a Sonic lunch! 

Layne got to join us for the cupcakes! 

Hayden's birthday cake.....designed by her! 

Aunt September being herself at Hayden's soccer practice! 

She's just so darn crazy! 

Build a Bear birthday party.....about to begin! 

Each of the girls came in and picked out the stuffed animal that they wanted. They got to pick out some clothes or accessories too! 

Wynnie was just in amazement at all of the choices! 

Time for Cake! 

Present time! 

After Build a Bear we went to Steak and Shake for dinner. That really wasn't too bad considering we had 6 girls all under the age of 7. Sep was a lot of help though! 

Time to watch The Little Mermaid! 

Daddy made pancakes for breakfast in the morning!! 

Whit approaching the finish line! 

Sep made the signs the night before....I just helped color them in!
