Congrats to April!!

Today was a big day. Alex's little sis, April, graduated from high school. When Alex and I first started dating, April was 4 years old. There was a daycare on the same campus as our high school, so he would walk her to daycare and pick her up, each day. I can still see that sweet, little, round face in my head. :) She's definitely not a baby anymore...she's a beautiful, young woman. April has what I would call a meek and quiet spirit...I hope my little girls are like their Aunt April someday. :) She has a huge heart and we think the world of her.

Making herself though she needs it. :)

Alex and April- about to leave the house

Big brother walking her to the auditorium. I'm sure he would have held her hand like she was 4 again, if she would have let him. :) So sweet.

Gown Time!

Helping a girl out...

She was the cutest graduate there!

OOOhh!! You are looking SO cute and pretty in that yellow!! I am ready to see a belly pic!!
Been thinking about you a lot these last few days since Avery Kate arrived...I just can't wait for you to get to experience all this!!! It is such a blessing and intimate experience in your walk with the Lord, your relationship with your husband, family, etc.
Hope you are feeling good and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

April IS cute but you are a CUTE MAMMA!! You look cute as a bug or button (which ever you prefer).

I am loving the picture of you in the look gorgeous!!

Hope y'all have a great weekend!

What fun. I envy that your family seems so close. I was thinking that you guys have been married 12 years, so you've probably seen this girl grow from such a young tot to a full fledged graduate! Very fun. Oh, and you look great by the way, I hope things are progressing well!

I left this on my blog and meant to leave it on yours... this is a copy and paste...
My belly doesn't look as big as it is in any of those pictures. I'll take a belly shot soon.
I think I'm gonna be picking peaches tomorrow... come get you some.

Congratulations, April! What a compliment to her for you to want your little girls to be like her. That says so much about her!

And, seriously...can you be any cuter? You look adorable!
