Happy Birthdays!!! We gather with the Slaughter, Cox, and Searight group to celebrate August Birthdays annually. Mattios Mexican Food- It just doesn't get any better than this!!! This was the first year for Kirby and Ebby Lee... they seemed to do pretty well.

Oh Miss Kirb...We all love you. You have brightened everyone's life in 6 months. You look just like Paxton. You sleep well, you eat well, and you are fairly good at entertaining yourself.
What you are doing;
1) You are eating 2 jars of baby food a day and eating wagon wheels.
2) You are drinking 5 ounces of milk every three hours.
3) You smile at everyone!!! Your whole face smiles with you.
4) You are starting to want to sit and crawl
5) The funniest thing you do is when you don't know what to do you start doing this dry nervous cough. It is hilarious!!

We went under the BIG top. The circus was so much fun...Mackey and I loved the elephants. Paxton of course loved the motorcycles in the big ball. Next time Kirby will have to go under the top with us.

Happy 7 Year Anniversary
Rusty and I had a great 7 year anniversary celebration. We had a couples massage and then headed to dinner. We have had some great times together...Brassy Blueberries being the newest adventure. I am so lucky to have a husband that loves to share
in my passions and makes them his own. We are loving the memories that we are sharing together. Here's to another 50!

This outfit matches Mackey's personality...CRAZY
Fun...Ode to Mackey
What Mackey Loves these Days;
1)Dolls- She is very girly girl. I am hoping the athletic bone strengthens soon! When she runs all parts of the body are flailing.
2) I have to remember that she is only 2 1/2. She acts and talks like she is 4. She has started picking out her own clothes. It is so funny what she gravitates to in the wardrobe.
3) She has the most unique personality.... She is VERY independent. She is in her own little world a lot. Her feelings are not very sensitive and she does not mind getting in trouble.
4) She has recently potty trained and was able to get an American Doll Bitty Baby. For some reason she doesn't love on that baby quite as much as she should for the price. It cost more to buy the baby doll than to have a baby.
5) She is so excited about starting school and I am so excited for her. She is a nurturer. She loves Kirby and takes really good care of her.

Recently Paxton decided that he wanted to ride his bike without training wheels- though skeptical we tried....LO and Behold the kid can do it. We have excelled enough lately that he can start up his self. We are so proud of him! I am beginning to look in his face and realize that he is no longer a toddler but becoming a young boy.
What Paxton is into at 4 years old:
1) CARS still.
2)Sports- starts soccer league this Sept. He is really hoping that he is on the blue team. Rusty is the coach.
3)Dinosaurs and ALL action heroes. Not sure how boys automatically know about Super heroes but they's quite amazing.
4) He can swim on his own without floaties. A light bulb just clicked this summer.
5) He is a sweet hearted boy. He is very sensitive and a rule follower. All you guys will want Paxton to date your daughter because he is passionate about what he wants, kind, and gets stressed by people breaking the rules.
