Kohen is my younger sister's middle child. Below is a picture of the two of them. Lovin his shirt!
All of the cousins were able to play together today too. Of course, Mallory said she was ready to go after a couple of hours of playing with the boys. She is starting to get tired of all of the rough housing. I've told Shane, we can go ahead and get ready to get notes sent home from school when she starts kindergarten. She has learned to hold her own that's for sure! We are missing one though, little Gabe wasn't at the party today. I really wish I could've seen him too.
Here's me and my lil' sis. I really don't get around to visiting her very often. I really wish we lived closer. She is in cosmetology school right now and she is pretty focused on her schooling. I think she is going in the right career field. She was alway cutting on her hair when she was in 1st grade and up. Sometimes it came out awful.....other times it was like, WOW she did a really good job. (Remember the layered do Kris? Not bad ;)

It has been requested to put more photos of the progress of the addition. So Mr. Shows, here are those new photos. The crew actually finished up their part today with completing the roofing, and now the hard work is left up to us.... We will be doing all of the interior: electricity, drywall, insulating, flooring, painting, etc.
The photo below is looking in the doorway of what will be our office. This opening used to be a window; we will be knocking the wall out and framing this to become a doorway to our bedroom.
This picture below will be our bedroom. This shot is taken from that opening that will be the doorway. It is going to be a very nice sized room.
I had to share this picture of the bathroom the kids will be using. We will be doing a complete do-over in here. I am getting so excited about redecorating!!!

Saturday night, my mother in law and I hosted a Premeir Jewelry party at her house. My mother has just become a premeir jeweler and this was her first party. We had a great time looking at all of the jewelry and trying it all on.
Can't you tell that my grandmother is having the time of her life sitting at that jewelry table ;) She doesn't like her photos taken, so she wasn't in the photogenic mood at all.
My neice ,Alex who is 7, was at the party. Her mother won a prize, so she let Alex pick it out of the grab bag. She pulled out the biggest diamond ring and that was it for her!! All night long she posed and flashed her diamond for all to see.
We later learned that she had peeked in the bag and pulled this gift out strictly for herself. She said she couldn't wait to wear her diamond to school when it started for all of her friends to see.
Mallory stayed for the party too, but she was a little camera shy. I did get her to smile at me for this shot.
Dillon went with Peyton and his Uncle Muskie to Hattiesburg to hang out with the guys. They ended up going to Gatti Town to eat pizza. When he came back he was still in his "manly" mode, not wanting to do anything with the girls. Alex had my camera taking photos and this is how Dillon was feeling towards all of the girly fufu....
They are saying that we should have the roof on by Thursday. Shane was off yesterday and was able to help out. Dillon went with him and helped out too. He has been working on a project out of all of the smaller pieces of wood. He is in deep thought of what to do next as you can see below...I love the look of concentration on his face.

The only problem is, maybe I mentioned before.....I do not have a green thumb...I have been working on it, but I mean we just transplanted those plants in the middle of this hot summer; I don't know if my TLC will bring them through it for next year. Oh I sure do hope so!
I am so excited to have the guy show up tomorrow to start staking off where the addition will be going. Shane and I are planning on going to Hattiesburg to pick out a GARDEN TUB for me! This is one like I am thinking of getting...
We will have a much better view of the pastures than we do now. This photo was taken from the front porch of his granparent's old home. Our doe herd is right across the road in the pasture. There is also this wide of a view to the right, I just couldn't fit it all in one photo. Can't wait to sit on the front porch to watch the animals while sippin on some sweet tea!
