This dress I got at tar-jay.... I like it, John said he didn't really like it, but it's ivory back ground with blue/purple flowers on it. It's kind of see through with a spaghetti strap on underneath it, I think it's cute!

Clementsville Family Portrait Proofs are ready to view!!!

Ok ladies, a few weeks back we got our family portraits made here in Collierville on the Square. We hope in the next year or so to try to move to that area, plus we are always in that area, especially the square, so I thought that would be the best place to get pics made where the boys would feel right at home. John and I knew it is way past time to get some family pics done, but there's always excuses, I'm heavier than I ever thought I would be, but I have to put that aside and enjoy the way my family is and looks right now. I think John and the boys took some amazing pictures, there's several of the boys that made me cry... Will's eye's are just stunning in the light & Luke's smile is amazing!!! Go to this website to view them www.kristinirbyphotography.zenfolio.com Once you are to that page just look for my precious family, click on it and there ya go!!
Here's my favs... #2, #4, #9, #12, #20, #33, #41, #43, #56, #58, #62, #66, #73, #81, #86, #92, #94, #102, #104, #109, #119, & #122

Back to my late night post..ha!

It sure does feel great to have my internet back and working so I can be back up to speed. Well this is my second week of jogging each night. This first few days were pretty easy and I thought, well this is going to be GREAT. This week was much harder, my bestie (Ashley) and I walked 4 miles last week and yesterday we could only do 3..hahaha! Tonight we did 4 miles again and tomorrow we plan to do the 5 miles and continue each night after that with 5 miles. Many times I have gone through phases where I walk every night, but at those times I will only walk about 1 to 2 miles, this time we are going all out and not stopping this time! At times life gets super busy and we just can't get together to do it, but thankfully we do it at 9pm, once the kids are all in bed and that makes it better for us both to let lose and enjoy the jog along with each other's company.
Tonight I also went and saw a good friend of mine, Liz, who just had her second baby boy. She went into labor on Friday afternoon during those horrible storms...hahaha, isn't that hilarious!?!? So anyways, Toby Allen Beyer made it into the world on Saturday morning, he is just adorable and I'm so happy for Chris and Liz. A new baby is always such a blessing, just the whole birth process and then the next few weeks. Those are the times that I cherish most about my newborn babies. I mean, I was holding Toby tonight, trying to remember the times when Will & Luke were that tiny. It was so long ago to me it's hard, but it brought tears to my eyes. Those are the moments that no one will ever take away from me. I mean it was just Daddy, Mommy & baby, we would just stare at them, hold them so close and know that they would not always be this way... Gosh, I need to stop talking like this, I will start getting baby fever again and we don't need that right now!
I hope everyone has a blessed evening and rest of the week! It's a hot one here in Memphis, so stay cool!

Well, we ended up NOT going to Oklahoma with my dearest friend. I know that's crazy, right?!?! We had some major turn of events that made me make the decision at the very end to not go there, due to something else happening. My Great Aunt is not doing well, I got the phone call last Wednesday, so I did not feel the need to drive the opposite direction incase something happened to her and we still aren't sure how that will pan out.
Last week our computer at home caught some virus, so I have been out of the internet at home and that is normally when I do all of my blogging and catching up with my internet peeps. Needless to say, the past two days I have been mighty busy catching up and seeing what all I missed.
Oh do I have a story for you... We took the boys to this sprinkler park over the weekend. I just knew they would have a ball and just play for hours. They did play, but after about 30 minutes, they were ready to go to the regular park. I was getting so mad at them... ha, because Mommy wanted to catch some rays. While we were sitting there eating our snack, Luke went to get the beach ball that we took because it blew away and before I knew it he was gone. I thought I had my eye on him the whole time, but it must of been another child. This sounds crazy I know, but there are about 50 kids, all running around having a blast. So, the whole time I am keeping my eye on both boys, but heck I look down for one minute to get something out of the bag and I lost my sight of Luke. Well we searched for 10 minutes for my child. I was about to pick up the phone and call 911 as I was checking the last place in the park which was the bathroom. There that little brown eyed and brown haired boy stood. We searched the soccer fields, the "regualar" park, the whole sprinkler park, the walking trail around the lake... and then I finally said I will go check the bathroom before I get the police involved. I mean ladies, this is a women's worst nightmare, losing a child, especially under my care. Oh my, it took all day for my heartbeat to get back to normal and it still terrifies me! I wanted to have Luke's bday party there but now I'm not so sure, what if we lose one of the kids at the party, I would never be able to forgive myself.
So, we will have to see about that, but I'm so thankful, I mean just so thankful that we found him, he was fine and no one touched him! He had a accident in his new swim trunks which he was so upset about, but atleast he was safe and sound. Can you believe that no one helped him get in the bathroom door though, I saw all of these ladies walking in and out and not one helped him. Ugh, what is this world coming too??? OH AND YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THIS, AS I'M FRANTICALLY TRYING TO FIND MY SON, SCREAMING HIS NAME, NOT ONE PERSON ASK IF THEY CAN HELP... NOT ONE PERSON!!!! We had already been there for awhile, the boys have played with other kids, and not one ignorant person came up to ask if I needed help. In my opinion, if I saw some lady looking for her child, I would help in anyway that I can... this tells me something must be wrong, seriously wrong with the world these days!!!!
All in all we had a great weekend though and I hope and pray all of you did as well! I'm sorry I have no pics today, I will post more later in the week!

Hello & Goodbye... for now!!

Well tomorrow I will be heading to Oklahoma with my boys and a dear friend of mine and her two little monkeys! I am excited to be getting away for a kid friendly weekend with a great person! We will be staying on a lake, swimming in the pool and even letting the kids play on some water slides. I will thoroughly enjoy watching the boys have some summertime fun each day! I hope to catch some extra rays too!
It's been awhile since I've been on because I normally do this at night time when the kiddos are in bed. Well, the other night John was trying to take some stuff off the computer that was threatening to it and our internet explorer doesn't work now. UGH!! It's the most frusterating thing EVER!! Poor thing, he's been pretty upset about it all week but now we think we must have a bad virus. So as the boys will say, "our computer is sick" so it has to do to the doctor to get fixed... In our minds (just another thing to spend our money on, because we have SO much of it!!) It's always something around Clementsville!
I will have no access all weekend to the internet, so I will be having withdrawls, but it will be fun! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and I will have many new stories to talk about when I get back!

Oh What a Great Weekend!!!

Well, besides Mommy not feeling the best, we had a pretty good weekend! I'm not sure what's going on with me, I'm having some female problems, so please be praying for me! I'm hoping to go to the doctor sometime this week, so we will see! Anyways, I tried to still make it a great weekend for the boys. We went to a birthday party (why is it when your kids get older, you have birthday parties every single weekend?!?!) and on Sunday we went to get our family portraits. Finally, it was a beautiful weekend and we were able to get the pictures done, we have rescheduled them so many times. I will post pictures as soon as I can! It also was wonderful to have a beautiful weekend to get out and enjoy the weather. We enjoyed playing in the water and soaking up some sun!! I hope everyone's weekend was just as wonderful as ours!!
Here's Luke & his best bud, Allyson, at the Little Gym!

Is this picture not HILARIOUS!!! Will is having a ball... I LOVE this pic!!

Luke's face is priceless... they had way too much fun!

Ok, this picture of Luke with Daddy's OleMiss hat one makes me laugh. The boys were totally being super silly last night, so we snapped some shots of them. Does Luke not look just like that little boy in Forrest Gump I think his name is Forrest too, but I thought this looked kind of like him and it's just too cute not to post!!!

And I love this pic of the boys, Will put like 5 hats on and Luke put one on and Will is totally the ham (like he always is) and Luke is being so silly (like he always is!) Precious!
