Never pulled one of Lilli's teeth

This man has....Lilli's Grandpa, A.K.A. Booboo.
He has pulled all but one of Lillian's baby teeth (the other by her sister Bella)
We may not even know she has a loose tooth until we go to Sunday dinner and Lilli (who goes early to help set the table) says...Booboo pulled another one!
Her last one was yanked at Banks!
Duff doesn't know how Dan gets his big fingers on those little teeth!

This is my DARLING cousin...Rachel, awaiting their baby boy, do you just want to squeeze her? When looking at her picture, I know she making a funny face...but you can just feel her excitement and joy and the anticipation of bringing a new life into this world.
Her face isn't big enough to hold that huge, darling smile of hers.
This reminds me of my Bella when she said out of the blue,
"I would be so sad if I could not have my own babies.
I could adopt but I would want to have my own babies in my tummy!"
I remember also thinking this mature thought as a kid and looking forward to being a mommy. I always looked at pregnant woman in awe...thinking that is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I wondered if I was also just 8 years old when I had these thoughts. Oh my sweet Bella I am equally excited for your little ones, and being a Grandma.....I will wear that name proudly....but let's get you through the 3rd grade first...Bella girl!

In the car one day Lilli jokingly asked Sophia....."Is it Wizard Of Oz or Biz Da Boz?"
(this is how Sophia used to pronounce it)
"Lilli, it's Wizard of Oz, and there is a Lion and a Velcro!"

babysitting+cute boys= entertainment

A house full of girls could not resist
say cheese

say cheese and macaroni

my babies!

I don't know what it was about this year...but I had a sinking feeling the day before school and the day of. I always hate it when school starts and I have to send them into the big bad world, and they are gone all day everyday. I would rather have them home with me. I don't have the mental ability to home school...and not sure that is even the answer. I cried after we dropped the last one off, it's just another benchmark that tells me they are another year older.

wakie...wakie....eggs and bakie!

Now that I am passed pregnancies and nursing (i know...three years ago!)...it's easier to take more time on the water. I am just getting out of the wake this year, but in my defense the first time i got up on the wake board was last summer.....late in the game?
No way.... look out for the oldie!

Duff couldn't wait to dive in and wake board
He recently learned to do this....

that is my HOT husband.. my Duff Dyer!

over the whole wake

You have to click on this to see Lilli's face. She was whining, "I can't do this Dad...I'm not ready!" Duff speeds up and says, "Yes you are.... stand up!" She popped right up and continued to whine until she realized that she got up her first try on the skies.
"I can't do this....HEY I'm doing it!

Wake board also comes easy to Lillian

Emma has really enjoyed wake-boarding and is getting good...she was
so happy to get outside of the wake! Yay Emma!

Mar! Look at you!!!!

Bella complains about getting in the cold water...but is really a natural!

Master Duff..my handsome Duff Dyer has made a huge effort to get the girls to the lake during the day a lot this summer...but still has to work while doing it. He is such a good daddy and husband!!....we are
all so lucky to have him. I love you honey!
