Ashley’s Birthday and Easter Sunday

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.

232323232fp733;;_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_8726432;nu0mrj

 

 

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”

04 april 2011 257

 

 

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.

04 april 2011 267

 

 

Granna and Papa

04 april 2011 261

 

 

Mr. and Mrs. Wall (Ashley’s parents)

04 april 2011 262

 

 

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?)

232323232fp733_6_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_8727832;nu0mrj

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.

Winking smile

 

 

The Birthday Girl/Better half…and then my brother. Winking smile tee hee. jk, Col…kinda.

232323232fp733_3_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_8728_32;nu0mrj

 

 

The crazies helping Aunt Ashley open her bday package.

232323232fp73399_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_8728432;nu0mrj

 

 

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)

04 april 2011 279-1

 

 

Stopping to “smell the roses”? or searching for eggs…it’s a toss up. (Sav, Carter, Drew, Ethan)

232323232fp733;9_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_8;24932;nu0mrj

 

 

Ashely, Carter, and Collin

232323232fp73395_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_8;24532;nu0mrj

 

 

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.

232323232fp73397_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_8_;5_32;nu0mrj

 

 

And one last picture of the grandkiddos before Papa and Granna headed home. Ben, Ethan, Sav, and Andrew

232323232fp733;3_nu=3254_759_;88_WSNRCG=35_9_94__;32;nu0mrj

 

 

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.

Suz- I have been following your blog since your babies were born. You don't know me, but I found out about you and your story through your friend Maureen from nursing school. I was wondering what the name of that toy is that you bought for your nephew. It looks like some sort of trampoline? Thanks for providing years of entertainment for me. You are an excellent writer.

Jess said...

Ben is seriously the cutest of all your kiddos. Love his grin!

Your kids are adorable!! :)
Is there a way to tell Ethan and Drew apart from the pictures? I can never, they look so much alike!

Liz said...

OMG, I love all of you guys!!! What a cute post! xoxo

Jessica said...

Love it! Looks like you guys had a great Easter! Your kiddos are absolutely adorable, but Save seriously cracks me up!

I have a question about sponsors/ads, would you mind getting in touch with me? I can't find your contact info anywhere on your page. Please & thank you! :) jessicaaclough@gmail.com

King Quads said...

Happy Easter Steeces Cuties! Love the family pic -- you guys clean up pretty good ;)

Kelly said...

They are getting so big!! And adorable! I have a little girl (name McKenna Leigh who also has three brothers, one who is her twin and her oldest brother's name is Ethan) who is 3 and I'm convinced from reading your posts that she and Sav have the same personality and would be the best of friends!! Sorry for the run-on sentence! I laugh at so many similarities when reading your blog!! Love to hear your family adventures!!

Miss you even more now!
