 These four just looked like precious angels! We had a great weekend with Mattie Kate and Eli! 
 I am sad to say that I think this is the last time my little man is going to wear this type of outfit! It breaks my heart, because he has just grown up too fast!

 These two are two peas in a pod! 
 We will miss Emily so much when heads to MSU in a few short weeks. 
 These two...no words! That Jake can get Walter to do just about anything. These two love each other and it does my heart good! 
 This picture of my family shows what a great night we had....Lilly's dress is falling apart, Brian and I are sweating up a storm, my hair is up and Walt is in a daze because it's way past his bed time! Thanks Coop and Ash for allowing us to be a part of your special weekend! We had a blast and made tons of memories with some of the ones we love the most!!! 
 Walt and Lilly had a great week at VBS. They learned all about the Super Powers that God gives, heart, hope, strength, wisdom and power!

MSU Regional and Battle/Haskins Wedding Weekend

We are so very proud of our MSU Diamond Dawgs. The have had a great season despite much adversity and hardship. They made it to the Regional in Hattiesburg at the University of Southern Mississippi, so it was the perfect opportunity to head to Hattiesburg to visit some of our favorite people, Monica, Andy and Anderson! We called JB, our favorite player and he was eating lunch, so we just made it our mission to go find him! We had to with him luck for his big weekend. 
Watching the game with my favorite little bulldog. 
Thankful to spend this weekend with my little baseball loving boy. The rain kept us from watching all the baseball we wanted, but the Dawgs won when it mattered most and our JB pitched an entire 9 inning game to secure the win. It was AWESOME!! 
We found Blakely! You can't find two cuter fans or bigger fans of Riley Self than these two. Blakely's uncle, Riley, is our saving pitcher and this picture was just taken after an amazing SAVE by the man! 
Meanwhile, this little diva is hanging out with one of her favorite "big girls" and heading to the Peabody for a Tea Party. 
I can hardly take how grown she looks in this picture, with her posing and those RayBans, that I did NOT buy her....thanks Sidney!!! :) 
The Tea Party was a success and Lilly had a great time. Thanks so much Aubrey for having Lilly to celebrate your special day. 
Pretty girls, Lilly, Aubrey and Lily Melton posing at the Peabody.
They look like super stars! 
The Wedding Festivities have begun and we couldn't be happier to a be a part of the great event. Cooper and Ashlyn are getting ready to say, "I Do" and these two little girls are ready to do their part! 
My sweet Cooper and my sweet Lilly 
Lilly is ALWAYS happy when her Sissy is around. They do LOVE each other SO SO SO much! 
I love my LuLu. I don't know what I would do without her. She looked so pretty and of course she put on a great party!!! 
We celebrated are 10 year anniversary at Cooper's Rehearsal Dinner. I am thankful for this man and all that he does to support me and our kiddos! Blessed! 
Sissy with Mattie Kate and Lilly! 
Clayton and Sissy found our Walt man in the hotel!
The bridesmaids luncheon was beautiful, once we found it! We stayed lost for about an hour!! :) Lilly loved getting her presents and giving her present to Ashlyn. I hate that I didn't get a picture, but Lilly gave Ashlyn her Bride Barbie. It was so sweet. Lilly is always wanting to give gifts to others, her heart is kind. 
Lilly and LuLu....Lilly was in LOVE with LuLu's dress! They were having fun at the Bridesmaids brunch! 
The wedding day pictures are up next!!!

Award's Day and End of Season Ball

It's had to believe that the end of year is here. 2nd grade is a wrap and we made it. Sometimes I wondered if we would, but Lilly worked so hard this year and I couldn't be more proud of her. She won the fastest girl award for her class with her buddy, Quincy, who was fastest boy. She doesn't get her speed from her mama or her daddy! She loves to run and she was fired up to get this award. 

 Another trait that she did not get from either of her parents is her artistic ability. She won 1st place in local, 1st place in District AND 1st place in State for this beautiful rooster picture. I can't wait to hang it in my kitchen. 
 How thankful I am that my parents were able to make it to Award's Day when both Brian and I were working and couldn't make it. I couldn't make it without them, Lilly loves them being there for her. 
 Thankful for friends that take pictures for me when I can't be there. Hayden and Lilly are sweet friends and Laura, Hayden's mom, is a jewel of a friend for always thinking about me! 
 Lilly and Anna Lauren do love each other so much! 
 These girls are done with MHS forever! How thankful we are that they have been a part of our year. We love you, Emma and Emily and pray that this world treats you well. 
 It's the end of the year party at Mini-Magnolia!! This little boy had a great time and he loved getting his face painted like a chief. 
 Walter and Cole....best buddies! 
 Walt and Eli....it was so much fun getting to know Eli this year. We sure are going to miss him next year! 
 Look who Walt man ran into at graduation practice! We love our Emily! 
 These 3 muskateers are having so much fun playing baseball together. What a fun first year of rec ball. It will be a year we will never forget! 
 Thanks Coach Daniel for coaching Walt's first baseball team. You were the best!! 
 Walt ABSOLUTELY LOVED having his Daddy wear his jersey and be on the field helping. He is my child that likes his parents being a major part of every thing he does! He wants us to teach him, coach him and heaven forbid we not come to something. He loves an audience! 
 Two of his biggest fans came to cheer him on at his last game and he was thrilled. They told him he was coming and he asked where they were about 10 times before they got there. Will and Grisham are so sweet to my Walt man. 
 Walt and his buddy Maddox played on opposing teams, but they loved it! 
 My little baseball loving dude had a great year! 

 Lilly had a great season playing for the Rockers and she was the cutest and best little catcher I have ever seen. Thanks to Coach McCain for all he does for these girls. 
 Lilly after getting her trophy going down the line giving high fives to the other team! 
 I don't think this smile could get any bigger. She just loves Coach Patterson. He coaches her so well at the catcher's position. He had to miss a couple of games this season and she came home telling me how she doesn't like it when he isn't there. This man has been in our life a long time...so glad he is getting to share his love and wisdom with my girl!! 
 Lilly and Caroline....doing what they do best. Leaving selfies on my phone! 
 Lilly had a great cheering section at her final game. Sissy and Clayton came to watch her and she was thrilled. 
 It was just an added bonus to get to play with our Graves family this year. We begged for Walt and Parker to get in the picture with the 3 ball players, but were being 4 and wouldn't do it. When I got ready to snap the pic, Parker BOMBED it!! That stinker! 
 Lilly and sweet Andi Kate...teammates, friends, cousins....you know. Family in Mississippi! 
 Thanks Mamie and Boo for our end of season Mexican celebration dinner!! 
 My sweet baby Thompson!! I have loved getting to love on this little guy! 
All of our love and blessings! 
The Atwood Family
