Welp, she tried.

We bribed her with a cookie, and really talked him up.  She said she was ready, but it just wasn’t in her.  She gave him a high five and was okay…until she sat in his lap.


So we sat with her and she tried to not cry.  She even told Santa thank you through her tears when we were finished.  That night when I was getting her ready for bed I asked her about her Santa visit and she said, “I cwied Momma.”

Adlee is 2!!

But first she was Abby Cadabby for Halloween.


I will apologize for the lack of blogging later, now I apologize for my non-photogenic child.  This girl will NOT smile for a camera!


She actually loved getting dressed up and pretending to be Abby Cadabby, she did much better than I thought she would.

Now onto my big girl, not sure I am ready for this…


This is how she looked for her big day!  It was a Wednesday so we all worked and Adlee went to preschool.  Mrs. Amie bought her cupcakes so her and her little friends got to celebrate and they sang to her.  I got pictures sent to my phone that day…I am SO thankful for how Amie takes care of her!!


We had a family party for her the following week when everyone could come.  She would DEFINATELY not stand still to have her picture taken that night!












She had a very fun birthday!! 

Not to upstage Adlee’s big birthday or anything, but she is now going to be a big sister!!! This is why the lack of blogging, the pure exhaustion has taken over my body and these fingers just don’t quite  type like they use to.  Okay, maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration.    Baby England 2 due June 2, predicted in May!!!

Adlee’s Many Looks

We like to dress up around here.  Here are just some of the things you might see Adlee in if you were to drop by on any given day.





(Thanks MeeMaw for the Del City Cheer uniform!!)





And this was morning for church.




Thanks Mimi for thecowgirl boots!!!



She is getting very particular about what she wears and when she wears it.  She is very strong willed about things and we are seeing more fits about clothes these days.  Man, the teenage years will be a blast…

Welp, here it is.

In the last month I have started back to school teaching Kinder again, sent Adlee to her first daycare, let Jerred add to his list of jobs (Del City Football chaplain), switched to first grade in a day, turned 30, and celebrated Jerred turning 30 too.  This is why the lack of blogging.  So sorry, I will work on it! 

My job is going well.  First grade is different but I am getting the hang of it.  Adlee LOVES her school.  She is having a blast and also learning a ton.  It is also really nice for me because Amy, the lady who keeps her, comes and picks her up at my school in the morning and brings her back to me after the day is over.  Adlee loves coming to my school and acting as if she owns the place.  Jerred is liking his extra job too.  He has been going to almost all the practices and will go to all the games and stand on the sidelines.  I think he will make some really great bonds with the boys and hopefully have an impact on many of them!!  So we are both really excited about the possibilities there!  And the whole 30 thing we don’t need to talk about.

Now you can all stop reading because I am going to scrapbook a little bit here.  You can just scroll through pics!!  First, Adlee has figured out how to open EVERYTHING!  Her favorite things are my makeup. 


She is counting to 10.  Singing everything she hears, favorites being Lord’s Army, Wheels on the Bus, Boots, Jesus Loves Me, and ABC’s.  She pretty much says whatever she wants.  The other night we walked in the house and she said “Oh my goodness!” plain as day!!

She loves playing outside!


She has finally started saying “Wuv you” and loves giving hugs and kisses! 


When we get in the car after school she talks the whole 15 minutes home.  Tells me about the kids at school, calling them by name, and telling me things they played with.  I don’t catch all of it, but I’d say about 75% I understand :)


Still loves accessories. 


Favorite shows are Yo Gabba, Jack’s Big Music Show, Elmo, and Dora.  She put her babies in her chair to watch tv with her.


She will do anything for a laugh, and when we start laughing she just does it more!!  (Such a little Jerred!)   This is something the kids at church have her do all the time…crazy face!


She is still the happiest girl, and LOVES being around people.  We are so thankful our school year has started out so wonderfully!!

My Beth Fend

Okay, I will admit it Adlee has a lisp.  But for now I am just looking at it as cute, but the teacher in me is ready to work on it when she is talking more.  But that is not what this post is about.  This is all about Adlee’s best friend…Gaythie.  Known to all of us as Grace or Gracie. 

Gracie is a 5th grader at our church, so she is not quite in our youth group yet.  However, her older sisters are in the group, so she ends up hanging out with us a lot.  Adlee really loves her oldest sister, Erin.  But Erin has sadly been replaced.  This is Adlee and Erin right after camp this year. 

This weekend we were on a trip with our older kids and Adlee cried one night because Ewin (Erin) was there and she wouldn’t stop saying “I need Gaythie.”  So sad.  Luckily on Sunday night they were reunited.





On a side note, Adlee has learned what to do when we pray.  She will always grap the hands of the people around her and “close” her eyes.  This is the face she makes EVERY time we pray.  Then she finishes with a very loud AMEN!!

Our New Look

Adlee is obsessed with accessories.  You name it she wears it at some point or another: bracelets, necklaces, purses, hair bows, you get it.  Here is our new one.

IMG_4774 She now asks for her “gasses” all the time. 

IMG_4780  Ignore the sweet hairdo, I had just taken out a pony tail before bed!


She might have thrown a big enough fit to wear them into church, and we might have been asked twice if they were prescription glasses.

Dear Faithful Readers,

I am sorry for the lack of blogging.  Recently I have been told by 3 readers that the blog was idle.  So this is for you 3 :)  Now I know of 5 readers total!!

If you haven’t seen on facebook this has been a tough month for my family.  I am not quite ready to blog about things just yet, but check my fb  if you don’t know what I am talking about.  Prayers are appreciated!

So onto the Adlee update!  Since our first camp we have had 2 more camps and a vacation in Dallas with my family.  Tonight I will share our exciting 4th of July.  We just had a family day, we even cleaned out the garage.  So while we did that we let Adlee go swimming!


Okay, okay it really wasn’t swimming weather.  But this girl LOVES her some water!  She finds a puddle and just goes to town.  This day she played in the rain and realized the fun a gutter can bring. 


This was at least 30 minutes of pure joy while we cleaned up in the garage.



I guess we took pictures AND cleaned!

Then she discovered the curb puddle!


Love the curls!!




We then took a bath got on our PJ’s and headed to the Edmond firework show.  Could NOT figure out how to get the camera to work, but Adlee loved the fireworks.  She was in complete awe. 


We enjoyed America’s Day!!!
