Happy Halloween!!!! I LOVE Halloween and I'm so glad my kids (and husband!) obliged me for another year and did a family costume! We chose a Peter Pan theme this year complete with Peter Pan, Tiger Lily, Captain Hook, Tinkerbell, Wendy, and Rufio (the infamous lost boy from the movie Hook). I wish I could take credit for the girls' costumes; however, I can only claim to have searched for these costumes on the internet ;) Peter Pan, Hook, and Tinkerbell were all bought via etsy shops (linked below). Tiger Lily is a dress from the Children's Place (no longer available) that the girls' Auntie Carlie customized and embellished to transform it in to the perfect Tiger Lily costume (Thanks Auntie Carlie!). I found my vintage blue dress via a yard sale page on facebook for $15 (SCORE!) and Matt pulled his costume together bit by bit and spent the most time out of any of use customizing his costume!

As in years past we did a few photos beforehand so we can enjoy the evening with our friends, family, and neighbors without worrying about photos too much! I hope you all enjoy our 2017 family costume!
We are so excited to announce that in late February or early March will be welcoming baby Bork #4 to our family! Tonight we did a gender reveal with our girls to see if they would be getting a little sister or a little brother? What do you think will be added to our house of pink!
Thanks to our friends Casey and Carlie for helping us with our reveal!
PINK OR BLUE ?!?!?!?!?!?!
Yay for a house full of PINK!!!!!
Our oldest started Kindergarten today!!!! I don't know how the past 5 1/2 years went by so quickly, but here we are sending her off to school! She was so ready and eager for school to start and we are so proud of her and her desire to learn and face new situations head on! We can't wait to see what this year has in store for her!

Happy (early) 4th y'all!!!!!! July 4th is one of our favorite holidays, and I always love getting to dress my girls up in the colors of our flag and take a few red, white, and blue themed photos! In the past I've always tried to get their photos on the actual holiday, but I'm so glad we did these early this year so I can just document the moments as they happen tomorrow and not worry about getting anything other than candid moments :)
I hope everyone has a great July 4th holiday celebrating our great country's independence!

Y'all !!!!!! Our baby girl graduated preschool last night! This is such a bittersweet time of parenthood realizing our oldest will be going off to kindergarten in the fall. She is more than ready to go to a new school and soak in all that they have to teach her, and seeing her so excited about this new chapter in her childhood makes my mama heart want to burst. But as happy as I am to bear witness to her excitement I am a little sad to once again come to the realization of just how quickly infancy and toddlerhood pass by.
I hope you all enjoy these images from last night's graduation of the 2015 Pre-K class at Scott's Hill Christian Academy.
First day of preschool vs. graduation!
The graduation program began with singing, prayer, and the Pledge of Allegiance. There is nothing much cuter than 70 Pre-K kids saying the pledge ;)
Then it got R-E-A-L! The kiddos put on their cap and gowns and got to walk across the stage to recevie their preschool diplomas!
