Sweet kids!


I love this shot of the 2 of them. Kim, you captured them perfectly. I love how you can see just how much they love each other.

Hudson and Parker by Kim McKown

At the very end of June, Kim took these pics of the kids. They are absolutely AMAZING! Hudson was not in the mood to take pictures, that is why he is making some strange faces. Kim, thank you for being so patient with him (and us). These are Hudson's 2 1/2 year old pictures and Parker's 6 month pictures.

1st day of school

Today was Hudson and Parkers' 1st day of school. This morning was a bit chaotic getting everyone out of the house, but we made it. Of course today was the day that Hudson decided to sleep in a little, so I had to wake him up:) Parker slept in more than what she has been as well...bummer that I did not get to join in the late sleeping festivities! The kids had a great day at school. Hudson seems to really like it and keeps talking about going to school tomorrow (which is saturday, so he has another couple of days). Parker did pretty well also. She has a few more obstacles than Hudson....1. learning to sleep in a new crib with several other babies around and 2. she tends to cry when she hears others cry (yes, she does this with Hud too)

All in all, it was a good day for all of us. I already miss being home, but I love my job so if I have to work I couldn't imagine being at a better place. Here are a couple pics from this morning.

Wordless Wednesday (this week, thursday and some words)





I'm going to try and post some picks every Wed....I'm not sure how it will go, but I am going to try. Unfortunately we are wrapping up our summer here:( We have had a fantastic time. I have really enjoyed being home with the kids. Hudson and I have done lots of fun projects and activities and we have spent lots of time painting. Parker is a growing girl and is now crawling. She doesn't always do the "normal" crawl but she can definitely get herself around the room.

They begin their new school tomorrow! They went for a couple hours today and it went great. Hudson had a great time and Parker did well (as much as I can tell). I really like the place that they are going and I can't wait to hear of all the things Hudson will do and learn. I will definitely miss being home with them:(

Hudson and Parker Videos


Hudson loves to sing with his Patticake Praise cd. You can barely hear it in the background....he is trying to memorize all the words so you can see him think about them:)

Can you tell she has an older brother? She is trying to "drive" the car and oh how she loves to make loud noises....although she is not a fan if she is not the one making the noise
