8 years old...

How is it possible that I am the mother to an 8 year old little girl?
I don't think that it should be possible... The past 8 years have flown by.
Having Aniston changed our whole lives.
I wouldn't have imagined that I could love anything as much as I loved her the moment that I found out that we were having her.
She is amazing, smart, beautiful, thoughtful, sweet, caring, loving, lovable, the list could go on and on...
She really didn't want one certain thing for her birthday, so we didn't know what to get her. Ryan called me one day and said that he had the perfect gift in mind. When I stopped by the store he showed me a pink bow and arrow. He wanted to know if I thought that she would want something like that... We talked about it with her and she was so excited.
So that is what she got from us...
She loves it... Her dad loves that she loves it...
and she is a natural.

Oh, man!! I love this 8 year old little girl!!

July has been a blast.
And exhausting at the same time.
Here is some of the reasons why...
The girls got to go to the mini cheerleading camp this summer. They were thrilled. Emerson walked through my house for days saying "Wolves, put your hands up, hands up."

Daddy and Easton watching the girls cheer in Aurora.

After watching the girls we had a family BBQ with a ton of yummy food and great company!

Ryan slept out with the kids (what a good sport) so that they could hear the bombs at 6 a.m. I think that Easton and I are the only ones who heard them... everyone else was zonked!

The 4th, or I should say the 3rd, was fun-filled!!

I love the 4th. It's one of my favorite holidays. The kids had a great time and Easton was such a good boy all day, despite being dragged from one hot place to another.

The only game that we like to play is the game where we get the goldfish.

Our poor fish didn't make it through the day...sad:(

The girls rode in the parade with the Cheerleaders...

They were so excited and their mommy thought that they were pretty cute up there!!
