camera happy

I have taken so many pictures over these last couple's like I can't put my camera down! Lyla is just so cute, I can't stand it (I know, I'm biased). But, here are a few shots from the last few days...

After our hike on Saturday, we went to our friend Hannah's birthday party. Of course, we wore our Hog gear and cheered on the Razorbacks while we were over there. Lyla was multi-tasking...playing some tunes WHILE she cheered. She really does talk jibberish and clap at the tv every time football is on. Takes after her Daddy.

Blurry, but such a sweet little face:

The precious birthday girl and her friend, Stacey. She threw SUCH a great fiesta!! So many amazing details, and a truly great time had by all!!!
Lyla wishing Hannah a happy 2nd (or maybe she's just eyeing the cake. toss-up.)
Bubbles are so entertaining!!

Lyla LOVED going down the slide...we did this over and over, and she smiled this big every time:

On Sunday, we went to church and then just had a restful day at home. Lyla was still in her church clothes and literally just ran around the backyard for about 30 minutes. We are loving this gorgeous weather!!! We are outside as much as possible. Here are a few shots of our happy frolicker:

*Sidenote: our friend, Benji (who we had the party for), has been staying with us for the past week, and it has truly been such a blessing!! We've been referring to him as our foster child. We really do feel like he's part of the family now. He's been awesome to have around...mainly because he loves Jesus and has such a sweet spirit, but also because he does dishes, cleans up around the house, and watches Lyla for us!! :) He's become quite the "Manny" around here! Today, he watched Lyla so John David and I could go ride our mountain bikes around Lake Fayetteville. It was so great! (although my legs are already sore) And this is what we came home to...Lyla snuggled up with Benji, watching some Dora. He's awesome.

Benji's not the only one keeping an eye on Lyla around here. Tonight, the Colliers came over for dinner and Presley and Estelle were quite the little helpers, too. Presley is in Kindergarten and is learning to read, so he read to sweet!! Look at that expression, too!


  1. so cute :) I'm loving her Arkansas and MJ dresses!

  2. I feel that Lyla's Hogs gear has lost its mojo. Perhaps she needs something with sleeves. LSU needs all the strength of schedule it can get.

  3. precious blaggs! we love y'all SO much!!! thank you for celebrating hannah's birthday with us! hannah definitely loves having lyla around! :)
