Stamped cookies

While the boys were in Louisville & I had finally turned a corner and felt better, I used my time to make some freezer meals. I also made some cookie dough to have on hand so I can just pop the cookies in the oven if someone stops by or Josh gets a craving. 

I just got this cookie stamp & used it for the first time to make some pecan sandies. They were delicious & it was also so different to bake cookies without little hands reaching their hands into cookie dough for a bite. Or trying to 'help' me make them :) 

Boys went to Louisville this weekend because I had strep throat. Jeremy & his family also came in for a visit so they had such a wonderful time. So thankful that Josh did that for me!!

We've had a wonderful Saturday! We went to the farmers market in town & enjoyed breakfast with some of the nicest weather we've had in a while. We came home & went for our 3 mile walk around the neighbourhood with the boys on their scooter. 

Then Nana & Pappy came to visit for the morning & part of the afternoon. And then right as they were leaving we had a surprise visit from Grandpa & Lizzie. It was such a fun day!!

New house!


We've moved! Sorry I've been absent all on here, moving with kids is tough. Grandma & Grandpa not sure how y'all moved so many times with all the kids. Having children has made me appreciate so much more things in life, it's given me a better understanding of time & what matters most. 

We had 7 guys come over from our church and moved us in 1.5 trips, they were a huge blessing!

Few pictures of the house as we're moving in.



Hudson & Josh went out for their inaugural mow with our new zero turn mower. 





They're adding a concrete turn around pad off our driveway which is brand new. It was part of our contract. 


Lunches with naked boys on the porch everyday!


Went to a air show at our airport this last weekend boys loved it! 

Josh mows & I relax on our deck!

I absolutely LOVE these two boys, they are just the best thing I've ever been a part of! Saturday we went up to Indy & happened to stop at Josh's favourite donut shop. The boys didn't object! We enjoyed them at a park we've visited before. We had such a fun morning. 

So excited for this summer with these two!!

Birthday Party!!


We had the best morning celebrating these precious boys!! The rain held off till the end & honestly the kids LOVED racing out from the pavilion into the rain. It was such a sweet morning celebrating with the best friends & family. 

The kids & parents loved the piƱata, it was so fun anticipating the candy falling & racing to get some. The older kids were so kind to share their candy with the smaller kids who aren't as quick. We had coffee, donuts, lots of snacks for the kids & Jessie Cakes!! Everyone asked who made these cakes because they're SOOO good.
