This Dress

Almost 5 years ago my Aunt Diane gave Madeline her very first dress up dress.  She loved it and it was very well loved.  She then grew out of it and it got out in a box for hopefully later use, I'm surprised it lasted through quite a few purges actually.  

We'll fast forward to about a month ago, now that Viv goes up and downstairs as she pleases I am surprised at some of the stuff she brings up to me.  Anyway she brought this dress up about a month ago, I didn't think anything of it until 7 days later every morning she woke up she would ask to wear it.  She will go to my parents in this dress, she will sleep in this dress, she helps me bake in it, she dances in this dress.  She does everything in it.  
It is so beat up but it fills my heart seeing her love this dress.  
That's all I can say without choking back tears.

Her first presentation

Maddy had to do a presentation board for her book report this month.  
She had to do a nonfiction book and write 5 facts she learned.  
She is so sweet because she is so nervous to do her presentation in front of her class so we have been practicing it extensively the last couple of days.

She is 2

Today our sweet sweet Viv turns 2.  Where in the world has 2 years gone, why does it feel like just yesterday we were driving to the hospital to meet her.  It feels like just yesterday she was up in the middle of the night wanting to lay on my chest and sleep... Oh wait that was yesterday.

 you bring us so much joy and laughter.  You are our little pepper, our spice of life, the way you scream and growl melts our hearts.  The way you sing at the top of your lungs and dance around like a princess stops us in our tracks. The way you act like a total girly girl and when your brother takes your stuff you put up that fist like your going to get him.  The way you do your little performance and then say "da" with your arms spread wide and that little knee bent makes us laugh every time.  The way you scream your daddy's name when he pulls in the driveway, that is the best part of his day.  The way you still say "meeeee" when you are trying to say please and the way you already know how to bat your eyes at daddy and I means we are in for it.  

We love you more than words little lamby!

Westview on a Sunday

This afternoon we went to westview orchards with my brother and fam.  
I forgot how much fun I have with him and how much I adore watching out kids play together.

Dog Days of Summer

We have been trying to cram every last ounce of summer in this week.  I have no idea why I feel like life is ending once school starts back up.

Anyway today we had quite the busy day we celebrated both my niece Scarlett and my niece Zoey's birthdays.  

I was fortunate enough to swindle my sister in law to watch champ and Viv while I took Maddy and Scarlett out for a couple hours.  These 2 girls are the absolute sweetest together the way they laugh and giggle, make up secret handshakes, talk about their siblings, it just melted my heart seeing them more as young ladies than little kids. 

After we dropped Scarlett off, we grabbed the littles and headed to get Zoey, once again swindled my SIL to take girls day continued with crafts at home while Viv napped and Orange Leaf yogurt after she woke up, and them cupcakes for class tonight at church.  
I love how silly these 2 are, they definitely are Bunks, I loved watching them interact because they are definitely their fathers daughters, agitating each other and playing house so intensely, making jokes and just belly laughing.

Operation Sunflower

We really truly did not think these guys were going to bloom.  They kept growing all summer but never had any blooms.  Well last week came and there they were 4 blooms.  Success!!!

  • I have a love/hate relationship with the last 2 weeks of summer. 
  • Vivienne has more nicknames than I can remember, however my favorites are Queenie and Lamby
  • The love that Vivienne has for Champy is the absolute sweetest. 
  • Christopher is convinced he is donating his old batcave toy to someone who doesn't get toys, and he will be getting the new upgraded one in the stores now. 
  • Now that summer is over and we are in a groove, I am going to miss having Madeline here to help me out. 
  • I am convinced now more than ever that Vivienne will be my little baby forever and ever, and I am totally ok with that. 
  • The way Vivienne says oWW and nOO might be the cutest thing ever, especially when she has her little index finger pointing at my face. 
  • Christopher told me yesterday I had to throw a pizza company flyer in the garbage because "that isn't daddy's pizza"  I love that he has his dad's back! 
  • I am surprised I haven't memorized all of Psalm 18, for as much as I read it. 
  • Matt Bunk truly has my entire heart, words can't describe how more in love I fall with him everyday
  • do babysitters not get taught to clean up before the parents come home anymore??!!
  • I am on the verge of being sick of making cookies. 
  • What am I going to do 3 mornings a week with only 1 kid?
