Family Happenings

We have had so much going on over the past month - So i thought i would do a few pictures to catch you all up on our lives.

So, first you must meet the newest member of our family... Glory Reese Kelly. Little did we know how special it would be to have another female in the house. When we were at the pet store, this hamster kept running up to BK and climbing into his hand. She won Bryan's heart and he brought her home to our boys. She was a hit with Bryce and Ethan and then one day...

...She gave birth to 10 squirmy baby hamsters! Yes, I did say 10. As Bryan would say, Glory knew she was pregnant when she left the pet store and wanted out of the "hamster ghetto". He thinks she knew it was no place to raise a family. It really has been such a fun experience for the boys, but now I must figure out what to do with these babies!!


As for me, I had a fun girls night out last night to celebrate the birthday of one our new friends from across the street. We laughed all night and I really enjoyed just getting time with her and her family and friends. Nicole and I have been praying hard for opportunities to love on women around us, and the Lord continues to bless our efforts.

Ethan just finished his preschool year and did a great job during the program - He LOVES to sing and doesn't even get really shy in front of people. He also learned to ride his bike with no training wheels. He is such a big boy. Today when Bryan left for the "day camp" they are doing this summer, he told Ethan that he could go with them. Ethan came up to me and said: "Well, mom, I am so sorry that you won't have a big boy to snuggle with today, but at least Levi wil be here with you. Bye!"
Bryce graduated from Kindergarden and I couldn't be more proud. He is really reading well and he just seems so OLD!
Levi turned 10 months old this week - time is just flying by with him! He is such a joyful baby and as you can see, still doesn't even have one tooth. I love his chunky belly and great big blue eyes. His hair is finally coming in and he is completely blonde - SO PRECIOUS! He seems to be taking after his Grandma Tressie and Aunt Amber!.


This weekend we are off to a family wedding (Bryan is officiating!) and to see my grandma who has been really sick. I'm sure I will have plenty of stories to tell again soon.

So many exciting happenings! That was a great update! Each of the boys is so cute... I wish I could see them in person.

We are inspired by what y'all are doing... And we're praying for you.
