Our little racers.....

Parker is a natural at this racing thing. He drove his four wheeler into the ground.. he was crazy on that thing. So crazy that we decided to get him a motorcycle - you know because that makes total sense? lol!! He has become a little pro - chance will not admit that the letting him win has very quickly turned into not being able to keep up with him. We were both very surprised at how quickly he got the hang of it. This kid is pretty amazing - he is pretty much great at anything he tries!! I am jealous :)
I guess racing is pretty serious business for Parker!!

Elley has taken over the four wheeler. She cruises around in her cute pink racing gear that she got for her birthday . Although she is more concerned about finding rocks that look like baby dinosaur eggs. Seriously - though how cute does she look in her get-up!!! I think she likes to put it on more because it makes her fit in better with "the boys!!"

I have to remember...

How seriously sweet my kids are and just how proud I am to be there mother every day .. but mostly in moments like these:

- My Grandpa passed away - he was one of the most important people in my life. My kids know how much he means to me and so they find little ways to involve him in our lives. The sweetest of which is when my little Elley Belly carries a little turtle around ( the turtle is like the mascot of our family- my Grandpa and Grandma loved them) and talks to it like she is talking to my Grandpa. When she sees me watching her she says," Mom, I miss your Grandpa so much- and I love him just like you!!"

I sure do love being the mom to this sweet little girl.. she is even cute when she is sleeping ....
