Back to school

As you can see, Evan was much more cooperative with getting his back to school pictures taken this year. Drew really didn't have much interest in cooperating. I had to pull out all the stops for this last picture. They were both putting up a fight and breaking down. So I pulled out the 4 year old humor, and got a half smile. I am so not above stooping to their potty humor to get a good picture. So worth it.

Holla...Anderson 5K

Oh...can she do it...... can she do it..... 

Yes she can. and she came in second.  Nevermind the gal who came in first just gave birth to a baby 2 months ago...
But still....HOLLA! I haven't ran in like a year and a half.  Again, hence the thighs and arms flapping in the wind.

Even with all the shanannagins.... I still managed to finish in 34 minutes!

Ok, so 2 of the participants were children. But whatevs. And again, cousin Jessica looking Amahhhzinggggg....hate her.

Hey, I may be sweaty, but a girls gotta give the head tilt and check the hair before she gets her picture taken, right? One word for my legs these days.  Skinny but fat in all the wrong places. Ok, done bashing myself . 

And props to my Madre for going too!!!  She rocked it!

Anderson Reunion 2012

 Sweet baby Annabelle

The dwindling Holtby side of the family...sniff sniff. We were the only ones who made it. Bobby, Billy, Kevin, yall are lame.

This is our cousin Jessica and her Mom. If only she lived in Orlando, because she is AMAZING with children!

 my generation and our kiddos...

Evan enjoying bean bag toss...he actually did win at Boche Ball, even when playing by the rules...he was STOKED!

Um...Yes please. I will take one of those!

My extremely dear to my heart, great Aunts...Aunt Budge and Aunt Dianne

Poolside with Drew

It's a darn good thing we have a pool for Drew to lay by.  Because what else would he do on a hot summer day? Surely not actually swim, especially since his awesome mom took him to swim lessons ever day for 2 months of his life and spent a pretty penny in the process.  Nah. That would make too much sense. Instead he prefers to sit by the pool and show off his ribs six pack.

Sip and See for Baby Chace

I totally meant to get a picture of the adorable cupcakes and more of the Little Man decorations and little chocolate mustaches that we had...but that didn't happen.  I always envision my party to run so smooth, after all, I start planning so far in advance, and start decorating 2 weeks ahead. But without fail, about 20 minutes before the event, something always happens and I end up running around like a chicken with my head cut off and answer the door a hot mess. And this was no exception! Thank goodness for Jen and Kristy who helped me.  Well, actually pretty much did all the cooking! I supplied the wine and food and I put them to work!  Anyway, fun was had by all. And we all oooh and ahhh'd over baby Chace while sipping our sangria!!!  Love these ladies!
