Peyton & Pierce turn 3

That's right....Peyton and Pierce turned 3 today!  It just doesn't seem possible that it has been 3 years already.  Time flies whether you are having fun or not, so you might as well enjoy the ride and that is what we are trying to do.

This was their first birthday in the United States and we tried to make it a special birthday with just family and one other couple and their two children that are like our family.  It was going to be small but we wanted it that way for this first one anyway.  So we were only having Nana and Pawpaw, Aunt Lisa, Uncle Curtis, and Dustin, Tia (my sister), Uncle Scott, Ethan, and Chloe, and Kevin, Krissy, Kody, and Kaleb.  We wanted to spend this time with our family that didn't get to share those birthdays with the boys while we were in Brazil.  We wanted it to be a time of celebrating and building memories, we were not worried about the presents.  The gift was their presence!
Well, we had a great time and even though everyone didn't show up, it was definitely their lose and not ours.  We had great bar-b-q, slaw, and beans courtesy of Nana and cake by Mom and Mrs. Stephanie.  Had lots of fun in the middle of a deadly line of storms that produced tornadoes through Mississippi.  But absolutely we made some memories!

Happy Birthday Peyton & Pierce!  We love you big as a pickle!
