THE Baby

Jake is THE baby of the house. 
THE Baby.
My last baby.
Okay, I'm about to make myself cry. Yes, it is really that easy to make me cry. 
I am a mother. It's what we do.

I always joke with my kids that the baby of the house is ALWAYS my favorite because babies are the cutest! Now when he grows up the challenge will be... how do I not favor him forever!!!???!!! 
I mean look at him! AHhhhhHHHhhh!!!

I love how my bookend babies resemble me and the middle babies resemble Tyler. 
Rachel and Jake both have dark hair and dark eyes. Rachel's are definitely dark brown, and Jakes are this deep swampy green that I'm guessing will turn brown eventually.

Be still my heart. 
Jake, my baby, I love you more than you'll ever know.

Halloween 2016

Well howdy there friends! Guess what? I'm blogging! haha! 
Come to find out having four kids, running a new business, and life is general has knocked me on my back. But here we go! I ain't giving up!

I went to the Disney store back in September. 
Wait, let me back up a bit. Halloween used to always be a stressful time for me. As a young, ambitious mommy I always sought out to create the cutest costumes for my kids. Having four I've learned there are more important things. Like dinner and bath time. hahaha!
Not kidding. 
Anyway, back to the disney store. I walked in... and bought four costumes.
Pocahontas, Maleficent, Buzz, and Woody

We've been on a Toy Story craze over here! LUKE LOVES BUZZ! 
And I must say he's the cutest one! He pretty much jumps off of everything and yells--- "To infinity and beyond!" It's the cutest. 
And would you look at that Woody! 
He's my favorite deputy! hehe...
