Not sure when my baby girl grew up but it's pretty evident here that she has. My oh my how beautiful she is. We are so proud of her and so blessed that God has entrusted her to us. Hope we don't screw her up too bad!

Allie had her first "All nighter" party with Campus Life the night before and I only let her sleep 3 hours before dragging her to the games! HA! You play you pay, Sister!
She was compliant...not HAPPY, but compliant! :D
Goooooo Spiders!!!! (And Lukey has the ball! Woot!)
Soccer is a tiring game! Lots of water breaks!
Luke got traded for a bit to the other team. They had him come over and then put him on the sideline. We were like.....um....what?
Allie's friend Mystika was at the game too...ALSO at the all nighter...ALSO on very little sleep! HA! I love meeting mean moms like myself!!!
Nana really gets into the game.
Daddy couldn't stand it...when Luke was goalie he had to go stand next to him and give tips.
Gracie was all up in that mess!! She loves it!
The All Stars! Ok...maybe not...but to me they are!
Annnnnd Daddy continued the tips all the way to the car.
Nana just snuggled.
Only a few more games. Soccer is fast this young! Only 5 weeks long. Next on the agenda I believe is ballet for them both. Luke wants to go back and Grace has been begging ever since Luke did it a couple years ago!!!

Luke and Tiffany. She is my friend Barbara's cousin and we all are totally in love with her!! She is a beautiful, funny and awesome addition to our family.
My boy and me. He's getting so big. Ugh. But oh my is he ever handsome! Mark and I sure did make good lookin kids!
And HOW did THIS make such good lookin kids? Hmmm....
My girl, Tiffany and me.
Lukey's Mama and Daddy!
The birthday boy and all his loot!
With the new brother, Brian! :)
Gracie LOVES giving her brother and sister her OWN presents. And it usually consists of toys from her own toybox. I love this tradition! Luke is here reading her card...look at how happy she is! They love each other so much!
Nana always gives undies! LOL
Brian was the official "present holder". He deemed himself in charge. Too funny!
Harley loved all the tissue paper! And later on his sister, Alani had a great time with the darts from the new guns!
All decked out in the new dartgun game garb.
Harley was whipped after everyone went home! So much stimulation! LOL
My handsome cousin, Matt! :)
After the party slowed down, Tiffany had to get things going again. She started wrestling with the girls. Oh my heck...so flippin funny!!!!
Gracie tried so hard! LOL
But Tiff is just VICIOUS!
After they fought, they colored.
Such great artists! LOL
