Catching Up: Part 3…

Saturday was a busy, fun-filled day in Tupelo again!  We headed over to swim, eat and celebrate Myla and George’s birthdays.  The both have July birthdays, so it is fun to celebrate them together with family. 


When we got to Aunt Be and Uncle Doc’s house, Selah immediately took to Uncle Doc.  She went right up to him, held her arms up and stayed in his lap for a long time.  This is so rare!  She rarely goes to anybody!  I told Uncle Doc he must be something special!


After swimming practically all day, we finally took a minute to celebrate the birthdays!  Here is George and Myla’s yummy cake!


Myla was so excited about her cake!


Here are the birthday buddies!


Sis Sis and Michael took it all in from the porch


Singing “Happy Birthday” and blowing out their candles


George waiting for his piece of cake…


…can you tell he really enjoyed it!


After cake and ice cream, it was time to open presents.  Myla has really gotten into the movie “Annie” lately. I loved this movie growing up, so it is funny to see her enjoying something that I used to enjoy so much!


Aunt Be gave Myla this “wedding dress” to play dress up in.  Myla loved it!


After opening presents we came inside to cool off!  It was HOT outside!  Myla and Chelsea snuggled for a little while.


Then I got a hug from my sweet girl!


Olivia and Rich


This picture is so funny to me.  George is puckered up ready to give Selah a kiss, and she doesn’t look the least bit interested!


Selah found a good place to snuggle on Pey Pey.  She LOVES Peyton!  He is one of the few people she will willingly go to.


It was quite comical trying to get a picture of the 4 kids together.  This was the best one I got…3 out of 4 smiling.  I am going to do a separate post with all of the outtakes from this photo session!


Olivia, me and Chelsea

Michael gives me a hard time because I always want to take “posed” pictures with my family.  Am I the only one that likes to do this??

+ Rich & Michael


The madness of trying to get a picture with all 4 kids continued as we tried to get them to pose with Sis Sis. As you can tell, Selah was not interested!


But what she was interested in was George’s training potty. Go figure!

After we left my family, we went to visit our dear friends, Chad and Lenora, and their children.  Unfortunately, I didn’t take ONE picture with them.  I was so disappointed when I realized I didn’t take any, but we don’t need picture evidence to know that we had a great time with them, as always!!


We went to church Sunday morning to hear Chad preach, then headed home.  As you can tell, the girls were WORN out from their busy weekend!  After we got home and ate lunch, we all slept for almost 3 hours. Myla slept almost 4 hours!!  We went to eat Subway for supper, then headed back home to basically go back to bed!


After we gave the girls a bath, I put aloe on Myla because she got a little blistered on Saturday.  I ended up putting some on Michael’s back, and Selah decided she needed to help me!


After Selah went to bed, we let Myla try on her wedding dress.  She was IN LOVE and twirled and danced!


As I said, twirling and…
