On Saturday we celebrated a lot of family birthday’s for the month of May! I think almost everyone’s birthday was this past month! We cooked out and had a great time. Today is Jacob’s brother Adam’s 25th Birthday! We hope it was a great birthday!
This was Crawford and Harley back in December
Every year Jacob goes to the Race for Memorial Day weekend. Crawford and I headed up to Hickory to visit with Mimi and Great Mimi! We had a great visit!
On Saturday we went to Ashville to visit my Grandmother and Aunt. We had a great visit! He even managed to get his back scratched and he loved it!

Smelling the Rose
We had such a great weekend with Mimi! I even got to sleep in a little which was nice! Thanks mimi for having us!!! We love you!
Oh what fun has 20 months brought us! It’s brought a few more tantrums but for the most part it was brought many many laughs, hugs and kisses!
Crawford learns something new everyday. He is like a sponge soaking it all up and surprises us with all that he knows! We are so proud of him!
He is ALL BOY! Below is a picture to prove it!
Crawford loves playing out side on his 4-wheeler. He is as happy as can be as long as he is out side. He loves playing with his golf clubs, basketball, bubbles and Molly or (Maww as he calls her)!
He LOVES Books! He is constantly bringing us a book to read and already doesn’t like for us to skip a page!
The word No is his most frequent used word these days! Its not that exciting to us but it sure is to him and when we ask him something once and he says no, if we ask him again we get a stern NO! NO! with finger pointing! It was cute the first 100 times but not that much anymore!! For some reason he screams No but whispers Yes! I am not sure why!
He loves to cuddle!
Below Crawford is looking through the fence at Molly! He loves to come pet her through the fence and I think Molly likes for there to be a fence between them! Molly is not as crazy over Crawford as he is over her! Crawford chases her around the house trying to grab her tail!
Crawford brings a smile to everyone’s face! He has the best personality and is so much fun! The past 20 months has been the best ever and we look forward to the next!
Chris & Riley, Conrad & Mallory, and Jeff all came over to grill out and play cornhole!
We are so lucky to have such great friends that LOVE Crawford to pieces! Crawford basically showed the boys his way of playing cornhole and of course they agreed with it! Below are a few pictures of Conrad and Crawford.
Casey and Ryan returned home from their Honeymoon with goodies for us all!! I had to share Crawford’s first Deer head with you! Uncle Ryan HAD to get this for him. I can hear the conversation now. Casey was probably trying to talk him out of it for my sake which probably made him want to buy it more! But to everyone’s surprise, I think it’s cute! Jacob gives me a really hard time because I think his Deer Head just looks too perfect in his parents house for him to bring it over to our house! :-) So for now Crawford’s baby STUFFED deer head works for me! Casey and Ryan also brought Crawford a cute t-shirt and train which he LOVES! Thanks Aunt Casey and Uncle Ryan for thinking of us on your Honeymoon!
Sunday was Casey’s Birthday! Casey we hope you had a very Happy Birthday and are so glad you are officially part of the family! However we have thought of you as family for a long time! Happy Birthday!
We had such a Happy Mother’s Day Weekend! Our moms are so very special to us and we were so glad that we could spend time with both of them this weekend! It is hard to understand how much our parents do for us until we become parents ourselves. We always knew growing up that our parents would do anything in the world for us but until we had Crawford I don’t think we realized exactly how much they did behind the scenes that we never knew! Thanks for all that you did and still do for us! We love you both very much!!!
To my mom thanks for not only being my mom but also my rock! Thanks for teaching me the important life lessons and for always being there for us!
To Jacob’s mom thanks for raising such a great man that I fell in love with and who is such a great husband and father! Thanks for all that you do for us!
I was a very lucky mom and got a beautiful bracelet from Jacob and Crawford for Mother’s Day! I LOVE IT! There is nothing better than being a mom! I love every bit of it! I feel so blessed and honored to be Crawford’s Mommy! It’s the best feeling in world!
To Jacob – Thanks for all that you do for Crawford and I and always being supportive of me. Oh Yeah, and thanks for putting up with the way I dress Crawford even when sometimes (most) you don’t agree! :-) We love you very much!
Jacob’s Great Aunt and Crawford’s Great Great Aunt Becky died today! We all loved her very much and will miss her! We are glad that she is no longer suffering! She was such a sweet lady with a great sense of humor and will be missed dearly by all! Becky kept Jacob when he was a baby up until he went to school. They were very close! I instantly fell in love with her when I first met her! She always made me laugh with her dry sense of humor! She loved for us to bring Crawford to visit her, and he loved visiting her! He knew exactly where she kept her toys and I think they were the same toys Jacob played with!
We Love you Aunt Becky!!
I have always liked this saying below and I find it appropriate today!
I wish you enough by Bob Perks
"I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright.
I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more.
I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive.
I wish you enough pain so that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger.
I wish you enough gain to satisfy your wanting.
I wish you enough loss to appreciate all that you possess.
I wish enough "Hello's" to get you through the final "Goodbye."
