Back to School!

Two best buds! ( Well for now anyway)

He was all smiles as he got ready that morning and thought he was so "awesome" that he has a red backpack just like Jake!

Off he goes to grade 3! It doesn't seem possible!

Well, it's that time of year again!! Jake started his 3rd grade year about a week ago and Kolby started his 2nd year of pre-school. We were lucky enough to have Kolby get into the pre-school at Jake's school 5 days a week! They are both so exited that they get to walk together every morning and get to play together at recess after Jake gets done with lunch. It's so cute how excited they are to get up and get ready for school together now. They both want their hair done the same way, and have to have "daddy smell" on them before they go. (cologne) Kolby loves to brush his teeth and ask me if they are all "shiny" when he is finished. If they get done getting ready early enough, they go out in the front and play basketball together or ride their scooters until its time to go. I can remember being so carefree and happy when I was their age and I love that they are enjoying their childhood as brothers.
I love my sweet little boys!

Boys will be boys!

I am so amazed by my two Boyz! They make me laugh with their individual personalities. It truly is amazing to me how they are such BEST-GOOD-BUDDIES, but so different in every way. Kolby finds happiness in being outside riding his scooter while wearing his Thomas slippers, Batman shirt, swimming suit, and his newest addition of cap guns. He is totally carefree and not afraid to take risks in being his own little person. On the other hand, Jake finds joy in technology, reading, and mimicking major movie heroes. I can see him being a film director someday. Jake is very charismatic and the first to crawl in your lap to give you a hug and say I love you! We definitely got the best of both worlds with these two. Can't wait to see what the newest arrival will bring! I love you Boyz!!!

Baptism Day!

Better late than never right? Its been a crazy, packed but fun filled summer at the Mackey house. I have been quite a slacker when it comes to blogging and have let time get away from me as well as taking pictures of important things! I will try as best I can to catch up with all our moments and as of now, I am making a vow to take more pictures and blog more often!!

Anyway, back to the subject at hand, on Sunday July 5th, our Jacob was baptized! He had been looking forward to this day since he turned 8 in April, but was patient enough to wait until Grammie, Grandpa Paul, Uncle Justin, and his cousin Tyson could come. It was such a special day just for him. He was counting down the hours until it was time asking me every 10 minutes "how much longer"? It was well worth the wait. We had so many close family and friends that came to show their love and support for Jake. It was such a special day that he will remember forever. Thanks to all the family and friends who traveled a long way to be a part of this event, and for all the wonderful gifts that were given to Jake to help him remember the promises he made on this day. We love you all!

(The pictures are not in order, but you will get the idea)

After the baptism, we had everyone over to our house for a little bit of dinner and dessert. ( In this picture, my mom, Justin, and yours truly)

Jake was super excited that the water was really warm!

Kolby was so proud of Jake and was totally excited to see Jake get "dunked".

My handsome boy.
