We traveled back from Austin and went straight to dinner with Ashley (my sweet, pregnant, sister-in-law) for her birthday. LOVE HER!
Benny, waiting patiently outside of Babe’s Chicken
The “tweedles” (affectionately named by Auntie Gen)---these two never stop talking. LIKE….NEVER! Its borderline ridiculous.
(Drew-blue, E- green)
“Y’all don’t believe a word my Mama says about me. I’m a darling little princess angel and would NEVER talk back to an adult. Nope. Uh-uh. Not this pretty face…(as she bats her eyelashes)” tsk, tsk.
Me and my Mama
Little Carter-man! He’s crazy. Kid can move faster than a fly.
Joe trying to entertain a restless crowd…
Wrapped around her finger--- just where she wants ‘em. (and right where he wants to be)
Twin smiles. Me and Mr. E-bud (as he calls himself). Yes, if you ask him his name, he will tell you: “E-bud”
Mr. Ben…the carbon copy (personality-wise) of my hubby. He’s gonna be a great catch one day, little ladies!
Sweet Drew…sweet, quirky, ever-yapping Drew.
Granna and Papa
Mr. and Mrs. Wall (Ashley’s parents)
My bro and his lovely bride.
Their offspring---the most darling child in the entire world---Mr. Blue Eyes!
Those crazy outlaws. Joe and Ash
Back to Col and Ashley’s house for some cake and ice cream.
And this is the present we bought for Carter. I’m pretty sure my brother and Ashley wanted to kill us after about 5 minutes of listening to the music! Ben is testing it out.
“Uncle Col---don’t mess with me. I’m a crazy woman and I’m capable of anything…muahahaha” (creepy face much?)
Sidenote: Uncle Col loves to give Sav a hard time because she reminds him of a little pestering sister he once had a long, long time ago.
The Birthday Girl/Better half…and then my brother. tee hee. jk, Col…kinda.
The crazies helping Aunt Ashley open her bday package.
And time for church on Sunday morning! Sure we were trying to make the brunch…but, alas- late again. Sav, Ethan, Ben, Drew
We’ve learned to try to snap a family photo BEFORE we leave the house on Easter Sunday or we might not get one! (or a good one, at least)
Stopping to “smell the roses”? or searching for eggs…it’s a toss up. (Sav, Carter, Drew, Ethan)
Ashely, Carter, and Collin
Savannah means business…like always, she is racking up the most eggs out of any child there. (Joe and I were throwing eggs out of her basket when she wasn’t looking…trying to make sure that other kiddos got a chance at hunting too!) She’s ruthless, folks.
And one last picture of the grandkiddos before Papa and Granna headed home. Ben, Ethan, Sav, and Andrew
Happy Birthday, Ashley!!! We love you so much. You truly are the sister I never had. And Dad, appreciate all of the picture taking, as always! We loved having you and Granna with us---and thanks for all of the Easter goodies! Love you.
