American Idol Concert 2012

Kinley and Hadley love American Idol and we have a fun time watching it together as a family. This is the second year that we have taken them to the live tour concert. The girls were so excited to go, they even picked out some hot sparkly outfits!

Kinley | 9 Years Old

Last week my first baby girl turned 9. I cannot believe that this will be her last year in single digits, the time is flying by way too fast! I absolutely love being Kinley’s mommy. She is such a beautiful little person on the inside and out. Kinley can be shy and quiet but she has a strong personality. She s is weet, kind, loving, artistic, she always tries her best and she never gives up, she loves the Lord and she loves her friends and family.

Kinley loves to read, play on her ipod, she loves her DS game, swimming, tennis, art, animals and she loves to write stories!

I put together a little collage of Kinley and her favorite things at nine years old.

Meagan - Beautiful! I love farmers market photos – so colorful and full of summer! Our farmers market is not very convenient for us and it makes me sad. I should just be brave and go anyway! ;) Thanks for sharing!

Our First Apple

Two years go Hadley asked for an apple tree.

Two years later we finally have our very first little apple!

Counting Piggy’s

My girls wanted to count the money in their piggy banks. They really did not care how much they had as long as it was more than their sister. They have been putting money into their pigs for most of their lives but yet they never ask to spend it.

Molly - This is such a strange image to us in the UK as we don’t have a £1 note any more only a coin. It seems strange to see bills in a piggy bank.
