4 months to catch up on ....

The last post was about my sweet cousins wedding in January! Whew, it's the middle of May! Landon is now 3, Ivan is now 7 months old, I am now 30 and Billy is now 35 ... and in a few weeks we will celebrate 6 years of marriage!!

In March we went home to see family and to take some family pictures! They turned out amazing! Mimi had turned 86 years old a week prior and we thought this would be the best time to celebrate her with having her kids, grandkids and greatgrandkids all in one place at one time! Nicole at Capture Me Photography captured our precious memories that day!


Carlisle, Abbott, Goodmans

We greatly enjoyed that photo shoot! We had a wonderful time visiting both sides of our family while back home! Wish we could have gotten back down to South Arkansas for visits with friends - time is never on our side!! We drove home - whew mercy that was unreal - and leaving FL it was rather warm. Our first day at Cathy's - it SNOWED!!! Landon got to see his first snow and was confused at the "RAIN" at first but totally thought it was the greatest thing!!!


Landon and the first time seeing snow!
 
 
Sweet Cousins - Landon was being smushed!!

 
 
We traveled over into OK to visit my parents and our second day there we decided to take a HIKE :) over in Devil's Den! Oh it was so pretty!! Landon had a blast climbing the rocks with Billy and watching the waterfall! I would love to go back and camp there!
 
 
Me and Ivan enjoying the beauty!


Daddy and Landon climbing rocks!!
 
Landon got to ride on the motorcycle with Poppa and he was OF COURSE in Heaven! So was Poppa!!


We had a wonderful time and greatly look forward to go back home - prayfully flying next time ha!


My best friends Mary and Martin have welcomed their second son into this world on April 22nd - EARTH DAY BABY! Big Brother Jude is learning to love him more and more daily!


Celebrating Luke's arrival


We like our awkward photos :)


Baby Luke letting me know he was tired of photos!


We celebrated Ivan's dedication as well in March -


Landon was very much wanting attention from EVERYONE at the Church!

Easter was a fun time as well - we missed out on the Egg Hunt due to traveling - but we greatly enjoyed our Sunday Easter Service with our Highlands Baptist Family.


Easter Sunday: Aunt Jayme and the boys :)


Abbott's 4 on Easter Sunday

Landon turned 3! I cannot even begin to explain how insane this is to me! I feel it was just yesterday we found out we were pregnant!! How this crazy mischievous kind-hearted boy makes me incredibly crazy and happy at the same time! We had a Toy Story themed party - due to his obsession with the movies!!! He had a blast with the Jump House and his friends! He had a blast with his NEWEST gal friend :) Zoey! Her Daddy is in the Navy stationed here in Jax and her Momma works with me and I'm super thrilled she showed up in our lives!!

Well I think I am semi-all caught up! The summer has officially started in the Abbott house and we are headed on our first summer trip to Key West to visit our amazing friends/family The Petty's! They moved in November and we are soooooo looking forward to seeing them and seeing how much Coral and Abby have grown!!! Look for photos :)
