Too Cute

Alison did a good job of recaping the night last night. Go visit her to see what we have been up to.

We wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Don't know how much I will post between now and then, but I am sure to have many pictures to share soon. Have a safe Holiday!

It's a Girl!

Today was the ultrasound appointment. It's weird. Even though this has all happened before and I knew that I was pregnant and could feel the baby move some, it all comes together when you see it through ultrasound. We have a health baby girl. She was measuring three days ahead of what we thought, but that is not enough to move the due date. We will have one more ultrasound next month because the baby was not being cooperative. The tech did not get a good picture of her lower spine and a profile picture. The doctor did not seemed concerned, so neither are we.

Growing up, I had always said that I would like to have two boys. Now we are going to be blessed with two girls. I could not be happier. We are so excited and trying to decide on names. Any suggestions? I don't plan on putting up a list or even really telling anyone of the names we are thinking about. We will, however, tell everyone the name when we decide. I don't want someones opinion to persuade our choice. But, I promise that when we decide we will tell. It will be before the baby gets here if we can make a choice.

To my wonderful husband.

Thank you for a wonderful 7 years, our beautiful daughter, and a great day today. I love you and am thankful for all that you do.

6 A.M.

So, Mylie decided to get up at 6 this morning instead of her usual 7 or 7:30. I was not happy about this, until I came down stairs and saw this wonderful sunrise out our back door. Hope you all enjoy it as well. Happy Monday, have a great week!

M-I-C-K-E-Y, M-O-U-S-E

Mylie has found an obsession. She loves everything Mickey Mouse. We went to the mall at Cool Springs to the Disney Store a few weeks ago when this obsession started and she had a cow! She could hardly stand it. "Me Mo" was everywhere. It was almost to much excitement for her. Mimi bought her three small dolls, Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Donald Duck. She has carried them around everywhere she goes. She has to line them up when she is watching Mickey Mouse Club House in the morning. It is too funny. She calls Goofy, "Dig Dog." I think this is because he is really funny when they sing the hot dog song.

Earlier this week, Aunt Lulu came up to the house and brought a bag full of goodies. She had gone to the Disney Store at Opry Mills. She brought a Mylie sized Mickey dressed like Santa, and a Mickey and Minnie doll that are about a foot and a half tall. Mylie even like the bag that the Mickeys came in!

Christmas Tree O Christmas Tree

I love putting up the Christmas tree, I don't like how long it takes me to put it up. It seems like each year it takes longer and longer, but the end result is so worth it. Mylie likes to have the lights on all day if we are home. Its one of the first things she ask for in the morning. I enjoy siting in the living room at night with all the other lights off, drinking a cup of hot chocolate, or spiced tea, at just looking at it. It makes me very happy.

We have a Boyd's Bear Christmas tree. However, I am not sure this is what I want for next year. I am thinking of doing two trees. (where will I find the room?) This is my question. What colors do you have on your tree? Is your tree themed? I have seen so many pretty ones at the stores this year, I may have to hit up the after Christmas sales to get some new decorations.

Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!

Boy, were we busy or what? In the past week, we have put up our Christmas tree, cleaned out the closet under the stairs and made it into a playroom for Mylie, helped cook Thanksgiving dinner, served Thanksgiving dinner at Nanny's, then attended two more Thanksgivings, one at Granny Ma's and the other at Neno's. (Gail, Justin's mother) Whew, it makes me tired again thinking about all of it. We had so much fun seeing all of our family. I wish we all got to see each other more often. I have lots to do between now and Christmas, so I will try and keep an update as often as I can. Most of the shopping is complete, but there is a lot of sewing involved with some presents, so as not to give the surprise away, I will have to post pics of it all after the 25th! But, here are some pics from Thanksgiving.

It's almost time for...

Christmas! This is a picture of my new front door arrangement. I found the "B" at Christmas Village and picked the ribbon up at Hobby Lobby. All of their Christmas stuff was 50% off the other day. I wish I could have loaded up, but I didn't have the time. Justin and I are currently in discussion about when to put the tree up. I think now, he would like to wait. I am very excited to see how Mylie will react this year to all the decorating. Last year, after Christmas, my MIL and I went to Old Time Pottery and stocked up on Christmas lights and decor for outside. I can't wait! There is such a short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas that I want to get the most out of my decorations. This is the first year in quite a while that I have been this excited about decorating for Christmas. I will post more pics and they are taken! Hope everyone is having a great week.

On a totally different note, Tam is having a Matilda Jane Trunk Show this Friday. Check the stuff out online and if you want to order, call or email me. Mylie has the Fern in Pink dress. I ordered a size 4T and it will fit as a dress for 2 to 3 years, then it will be a top for many more. This is an investment piece that is just way cutter than anything I have seen in the stores in a long time.

What's been going on with you?

Well, It's been a few weeks since I have had a real post, so I will try and catch everyone up.

Halloween was a blast. We spent most of the day at West with Mom and her class. Mylie really enjoyed the character parade and assembly. Mylie dressed up as a pirate girl. She did not like the hat that came with the outfit, but that was o.k. she still looked great. I managed to not get a good picture of her in her costume. I think I might dress her back up and make some pictures so that I will have them later. Halloween night, we went out to Missy's house for a party. She did a wonderful job decorating and cooking and we all had a blast.

Mylie's favorite thing right now is to sing her ABCs. She can make it all the way to G. From there she know more but not in order until the end when you say "Now I know my" She really likes that part too! She is talking more and more each day. There isn't anything she won't try to say!

We had Mylie's 18 month check up. All was well with her. I had my OB apt. and everything was great with us.

Justin had his Sgt. interview today. He is still in the "testing" phase. I don't know if you remember, but a while back I posted that he was taking the test. Well, the test and the interview go together to make up the score. So, he said he felt well about the interview. This process is very slow, and that annoys me.

We went back up to Missy's the other day to visit. Her mom cooked the best fried chicken in the world! What made it even better was it was boneless! Also, fried pies for dessert! I was stuffed. Her brother was there with his kids. All the children played very well together. I have so many memories of playing with my cousins and a child. I hope Mylie will too. One funny thing was Mylie playing the wii. The boys were playing tennis and gave her a remote with out batteries. She would swing it and say "wii" and "Ball" and a whole bunch of other things. We all just laughed and laughed.

Christmas Village is this weekend. I can't wait. This will be the second year I have gone. I have a friend who gets me tickets to the sneak peak. I hear that's the only way to go!

Hope everyone has a great rest of the week.

Don't Forget!


If you are in my area and need someone to watch your children so you can go vote, I will be more than happy to help out. Just give me a ring!

Walden Farms

Today we went to Walden Farms. During the fall they have a wonderful pumpkin patch. We went last year and hope to make this an annual family trip. Most of the things there to do and see are free. If there is a cost, it is very minimal. Of course, the pumpkins cost a few dollars as well. We saw pumpkins from 1 dollar up to 20 dollars.

Can you find Mylie? The pumpkin was way bigger than she was. I think she was trying to get a bite of the pumpkin!

They had a petting zoo and Mylie really enjoyed seeing all the animals. She stuck her finger in the chicken pen and one of them pecked her hand. She was so mad at the chickens. It was too funny!

Here is Justin pointing out the offending chicken.

Here she is in the pumpkin patch. It looked a little dry, but she had a blast running through and picking up the pumpkins. She tried to throw them like a ball.

I love this picture of her face, but it really looks like she has lost her hands! I think she was cold, it was windy while we were there.

Mylie posed herself in this picture. I had her in front of all the pumpkins and she wanted to climb up in the middle of them.

Were Home!

We got home on Tuesday. All is well and we are still unpacking and have jumped right back into our routine. More to come shortly!

Our Final Days in Houston

Saturday we went to the outlet mall, Houston Premium, that was really close to Nana's house. They had tons of cool stores. I did a little Christmas Shopping and also got Mylie and I new pair of tennis shoes from New Balance. I got a cool pair for 31 dollars total and Mylie's were pink and grey for $10. I couldn't believe how cheap they were. That is usually what I pay for my shoes at Marty and Liz in Murfreesboro. Later that day we went back to the house to swim and have dinner. Oh, for lunch, we went back to Chewy's and I ate my weight in chips and creamy jalapeno dip. I have got to figure that recipe out. It is sooooo good! When I get it down, I will post it so all of you can try it. Don't think Tamara and I didn't debate how we could get some of that stuff home. Were were thinking about dry ice. Ha!

Sunday we celebrated Tamara's Birthday. It isn't until the 15th, but since she wouldn't be there, they celebrated early. She got to pick the meal so we ate, flank steak marinated in Uncle Ron's Flank Steak Marinade, fresh steamed asparagus, cream corn, garlic bread, and Tamara had a special side all to her self, a artichoke. She is the only one who got one because they are really expensive. We spent the whole day by the pool in an attempt to keep the kids out of the car.

Today, we got up and got the last of our things together and left Texas. We got to our hotel about 5, and headed straight for the pool. Ha! We thought that would give the kids some good exercise since we have been traveling in the car for more than 6 hours. Now, the kids are asleep and Tamara and I are in our beds, both on our computers and watching t.v. life is good.

Please pray we have a save trip home tomorrow!

Shop till you drop.

Yesterday, we went to TWO malls and walked our selves ragged. The first mall, Galleria, had all of these really nice stores like, Tiffany & Co. LV, Juicy, Kate Spade, Gucci, and Fendi, and many more that I can't list. They also had a ton of children's stores. We visited Hanna Anderson which had a wonderful sale going on. We also stopped by Crazy 8, Oilily, and Jacadi. The kids were very good through our shopping trip. Then we went to Memorial City Mall. The first thing we did was ride the double decker carousal. Mylie loved it, and unfortunately we didn't get any pics because Tam forgot the battery for the camera. We walked all over that mall and stopped by a chocolate shop for a treat. Tyler got her ears re pierced, and we played on the soft play area.

Today, we got up early and went about an hour down the road to Brenham. That is home to Blue Bell Factory. We took a tour and had a sample of ice cream. It was delicious! Mylie really enjoyed it. During the tour, you stand in a room looking down at the workers. Mylie kept waving and blowing kisses to them. They got a really big kick out of it and were playing back with her. We did get pics but I haven't gotten them off of Tam's camera yet.

After the tour, the kids at lunch in the car on the way home and then went down for a nap. After naps, we went swimming and then got ready for dinner. We went to Korean B B Q. It was great. I don't know that I can describe it, but it was so good. Then to top all that off we went for Taiwanese ice cream. This I can describe. Heaven! It is shaved ice on the bottom, then shaved custard cream, then a scoop of strawberry ice cream, then mango ice cream, then four different types of fruit ( we picked kiwi, double mango, and pineapple) then sweetened condensed milk on top of it all. It was wonderful and I am stuffed. We are going to play cards and have some adult fun tonight. The kids are all asleep! Yea!

Wednesday in TX

Today, we walked to the park to let the kids play and enjoy some time outside. The weather was beautiful this morning. It wasn't very hot and nice walking weather. The park is about a mile away from Nana's house. The pathway winds through what they call the Bayou. It is in their neighborhood. Yes, it's that big of a neighborhood. The kids had a blast playing but the play things were a little bit too tall for Mylie to do by herself. So, she improvised. She found a stump to play with. I gave her a stick and some pine needles and she cleaned off the stump. She is always cleaning while playing. I know that she doesn't get this from me, it must be her Mimi. Ha!
After the park, we walked back to the house and loaded up to head for lunch. We went to Ph'o restaurant to eat. It is Vietnamese. We ordered white meat chicken soup. It had chicken broth, chicken, and clear noodles. It also contained some different spices. I tried my best to eat it but I had to stop because something didn't feel like it would settle right on my stomach. I gave the rest to Tyler to eat. She loved it. I love the fact that Houston has so many different eating options. The number of different cuisines is countless here. I am really enjoying being able to sample them. Tamara was concerned that I would be upset since I didn't like lunch. I totally expected not to like everything I try, but to at least try it out. We made a run through the drive through at Wendy's after lunch. Ha!
Then we headed back to the house for naps, then more swimming before dinner. After the kids went to bed, one of Nana's friends came over with brownies and we all watched the movie Baby Momma. It was just as funny as the first time I saw it. Now, it's late and I am in bed trying to hold my eyes open. I know I should sleep because with Tamara there is never a dull moment. We have the lots more on our list of things to do in Houston. So, stay tuned!

Fun Day!

Today we went to the Children's Museum of Houston. We had so much fun. I'm not sure who had the most fun, the grown ups or the kids. This museum was way cooler than Adventure Science or Discovery Center back home. The kids just played and played. For lunch we went to Udipi Cafe. It was Indian cuisine. Luckily, there was a buffet for lunch so I got to try many different things. I did like it, but I'm not sure that it would be on my list to go back to. I couldn't even tell you what it was that I had. I asked our waiter but I could not understand anything that he said. The wait staff played with Mylie and of course, she talked to them and blew kisses back to them. After lunch, we went back to the house and rested. Then for dinner I cooked my famous baked spaghetti. It was a big hit a well. After dinner, we went for a late swim to try and wear the kids out before bed. That mission was accomplished. Mylie was so tired that she began to pull my hair and not act very nice. So she went to bed a little bit early. For the most part, she has been a very good girl. Some days we are not at the house for her to get a full nap so she has to nap in the car or stroller. This causes her not to get a full nap so she get grumpy toward the end of the day. I don't think I can blame her for that. All in all, we are having a blast and staying very busy. Here are a few pics from today.

Monday, October 6, 2008

So, the birthday party was very fun. We went to Dry Creek Cafe and the food was wonderful. When we got back to the house we went for a swim and then cooked dinner. The kids went down for bed and the adults stayed up and played cards. We had so much fun. We played peanuts and spades. Peanuts was a new game to me.
Today, we went to eat lunch at one of Tamara's favorite places. We went to Chuy's. They have the best creamy jalapeno dip ever. It comes free with the chips and salsa. After lunch, we went to IKEA. That place is the best. I loved it. I wanted to get Mylie this chair but they were out of stock. Bummer. I have to wait until they get some in stock hopefully before Christmas. So, after a 3 hour trip to IKEA we came back and swam again before dinner. Mylie is really enjoying being with her friends. They all treat each other like brothers and sisters. Anyway, hope everyone is doing well. I'll check back in tomorrow.

We're Here!

We made it yesterday about 3:30 to Tamara's Mom's house. The car ride was way better than I expected. When we got here, we ate some wonderful goulash, then unpacked the car. After that, we put on our bathing suits and went for a swim in Nana and Poppa's pool. After dinner, we took a LONG walk to the playground and let the kids wear them selves out. After the hike back to the house, we ate desert and turned in for bed. This morning, we have taken things easy and the kids are now napping. When they get up, we will be going to a birthday party at a restaurant in down town. We are having so much fun. Hopefully we will remember to take our cameras out today and get some pics of the kids. Hope everyone is doing well! We will check back in soon!

Friday, October 3, 2008


We made it about half way! 5 kids, 2 adults, one van and lots of movies later we are finally settled in at the hotel. The kids have been great. Right now they are all laying on the bed watching some tv. We are going to get up in the morning without a traditional alarm, I think that Mylie alarm will work just fine. We will eat a breakfast provided by the hotel and then be on our way to Houston.

I had my Dr. apt. today. All was well and we heard the heart beat. It was fast like Mylie's was. Doc said everything looked great and right on schedule. That has put my mind at ease. Nausea has been down today as well.

Hope everyone has a great weekend. I know I haven't posted pics in a while, and hopefully on this trip I will get some worth posting.

Wondering where we've been?

We have been here mostly at home. I have not been feeling myself lately and am resting quite a bit. I would like to say finally that we are pregnant. I am due in May and have my first doctors visit Friday. I will keep everyone updated. I am nine weeks along, this is still very early, and I ask for your prayers throughout for our new baby. I remember being nauseous with Mylie but this time it seems to be ten times worse. Many have said that means its a boy. I think it has something to do with chasing after a 17 month old. I have really felt yucky for the past month and hopefully will begin feeling better soon.

So, Friday, Mylie and I will being heading out on a road trip. We are going to Texas with our dear friends to visit their Nanna and Poppa. I am so excited and a little nervous. I haven't been away from Justin for this long, especially with Mylie. I can't wait to experience a new city with Mylie and our friends. Tam says there is some really good food down that way. We are going to the Houston area. So, if you have been there and have any suggestions, feel free to post a comment and let us know what your "must see" is. Also, we will be driving with 5 kids, so any car ride games you can suggest would be wonderful as well. I will post and have pics from Houston soon! Hope everyone has a great hump day.

I really do not like Comcast, but what choice do I have?

Our Internet has been acting very crazy lately. It will connect for a few minutes and then kick us out. Justin has been on the phone with his brother for a few nights in a row trying to get it straightened out. I really wish I could switch Internet providers, but that would mean I would have to change my email, which I would really hate. I am signed up with this email to so many other accounts that it would be a major headache to change. Besides, Comcast Internet is supposed to be the best for our area, I'm not so sure I believe that. When you call them to see if they can help you restore your connection, someone answers and is usually reading off a script on a computer. This totally irritates me, you would think these people would know more than you about all of it, but most times they don't. When you ask them a question they don't know the answer to, they just repeat the answer to the other question, like you don't notice! Aggravating to say the least!

Anyway, did anyone else catch Rudy's speech last night? I thought it was totally hilarious!

If you are reading this in the a.m., please say a little prayer for Justin, he is taking the SGT test this morning!

Most of my free time is being spent on a special project. It is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. It should be complete somewhat by early next week. I will post pics later.

THE FAIR is close! I have such mixed feelings about the fair. I love to see the animals, but as an adult, I'm not so fond of the rides. So, are you going to the fair this year? If so, what are you planning to do? Go see the animals, the pageants, the rides?

We hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Thursday, August 21, 2008


So, I know it has been awhile since I have posted, but you know life happens.

I was trying to think of all the things that we have been up to lately and there were so many different things I wanted to remember but already forgot! Ha!

First, Happy Birthday to Granny Ma! We love you so much.

Next, there were two things that I wanted to share with the blog world about Mylie. She has been climbing up the walls! That girl makes my heart jump every minute. She is climbing on the dining room chairs, the couch, the entertainment center, anything she can get her hands and feet on, she is climbing. I told Justin that we are going to have to turn our furniture upside down to keep her safe. I did resort to moving the chairs into the laundry room the other morning, because I got really tired of telling her not to get on them. My friend laughed when I told her that. She said, " Are you never gonna let her sit in a chair because she fell off of one?" I thought it was a good idea..... Anyone know were to buy a plastic bubble?

Mylie has learned how to give kisses. Real ones. She purses her lips together while making the "mmmmmmm" sound and then when she makes contact, she says "aaa". It is so stinkin' cute.

The child has a major vocabulary and an opinion about everything. She can say, hello, bye bye, momma, daddy, mimi, nanny, pop pop, Jesse, nite, nite, NO, apple, door, balloon, dog, beep beep for car, more, sing, itsy for itsy bitsy spider, and many more I am probably leaving out.

The kiss thing just gets me. I sure when she can say "I love you" it will be even better. For her to be able to show affection that way just melts my heart. She runs to give Justin a kiss when he gets home from work. The other day a Sunday School, she gave Mrs Rosser three kisses while telling her bye. Totally unprompted and so so cute.

Today we were fortunate to receive a free little tykes toddler slide. Someone at church was giving it away. Mylie LOVES it! I am hoping this gives her something to climb on rather than the furniture. She knew exactly what to do and how to do it. I didn't have to show her how to go down, she did it all by herself! She is growing up way to fast.

O.K. so I am tired and going to go to bed now, Gail and I are going to the Quilt Show in Nashville tomorrow, so I need my rest. Ha!

Oh, I have some pics I would like to get on my computer from my phone, does anyone know how to do that? Please help if you do. Email or comment will be fine.

Wednesday, August 6, 2008

Do you know what one of the sweetest sounds is?

When supper is finished, I clean up the Kitchen and Justin takes Mylie upstairs to take a bath. I hurry around to get the kitchen clean so that I can listen to them from the bottom of the stairs. It fills me with joy to hear the two of them playing and laughing together. He is such a wonderful dad and husband. I know that she enjoys this time with him because the other day, we traded jobs. He cleaned the kitchen and I took Mylie up for a bath. The whole time, she called for her daddy. I guess I wasn't doing it right. Ha!

Splash Pad

Today Mylie and I went to the Splash Pad in Smyrna. We met some friends there for a little fun in the sun. Except there wasn't much sun today. That was o.k. because the kids had fun anyway. This place was a little smaller than I expected but produced a good hour of fun. The best part, it's FREE and is fenced in! It was a great day to go because it was not crowded at all. I would have been very nervous if there had been a lot of kids there running around since Mylie is still so small. The funniest thing happened, but it probably made me look like a bad mother. Mylie took her towel and put it over her head, like she does a lot. She started walking around in the water with her towel still over her head. Then, she turned and was walking out of the water and walked straight into the fence! She fell backward and began to cry. I could not help but laugh. So did everyone else! Poor baby!

Happy Birthday Carter J!

My Little Dare Devil

Mylie has been climbing on EVERYTHING! Anything she can get her little foot up on or pull herself up to, she is climbing! I am thinking that we are going to have to bolt everything down in the house, or move all the furniture out. The other morning, I left her in the living room for just a few seconds and when I came back in the room, she was laying on the couch drinking her milk. I am so afraid that she will attempt her latest trick with out us in the room. That is, she climbs up on the couch and then onto the arm of the couch and stands there. She then turns around and dives into the middle of the couch. I caught a few pics of her before she jumped. Don't think that I am a bad parent. Justin was standing very close to her, you just can't see him in the pics.

Consignment Sale!

Check out this site for information on the Encores & More North Children's Consignment Sale in August. It looks like it is going to be awesome! I will be consigning some clothes and going to the pre sale. If you plan on going and would like to ride together, shoot me an email and maybe we can carpool and save some gas $$!

Ramsey, See you tonight!

Catch Up...

Mylie finally started feeling better around the 4th. We went to a friends house for a cookout and fireworks. Of course, Mylie stole the show. She was so funny. Our friends hired a DJ and Mylie danced forever. Everyone was watching and encouraging her. It was too funny. Mylie loved the fireworks. She would look up and say "ooooo" and clap her hands every time one would go off.

Monday we went to a friends house to swim and had a blast. Her pool had a awesome slide and diving board. I even went down the slide twice. It was too big for Mylie but she really enjoyed watching the other kids in the pool.

Later this week, we went to Chattanooga to visit Steven Bourque. He is a co worker of Justin. During Bonnaroo, Bourque was patrolling on his THP motorcycle when he was involved in a crash. He was hurt pretty badly. He was taken by helicopter to Erlanger and had to have surgery. During surgery, there were some complications which almost cost him his life. After staying at the hospital for about a week he was moved to a rehab facility. He stayed there for 2 weeks before coming home this past Thursday. He is doing as well as could be expected now. He still has pins in his foot and the doctors have not been able to address his shoulder because of the blood thinner that he is on. He will continue to have physical therapy and it is estimated that he could be back to light duty work in about 6 months and full duty in about a year. Please keep him and his family in your prayers. He is married with two young children.

Friday we went to the YMCA with Tamara and her crew. We had a lot of fun, and I got a little sun burnt. It is true that the best time to get sun burnt is when it is overcast. Later that night, we met my cousin and her boyfriend for dinner. We had wonderful food and great conversation. I sent Mylie with Tamara so we could enjoy some adult time.

Today, Mom and Hannah came down to visit. We went to the Uncle Dave Macon Days here in the boro. It was soooo hot! We only stayed for an hour. I fed Mylie lots of ice chips trying to keep her cool. We went to Demos' for lunch and stopped by Julia's bakery for some desert. It was fabulous. Next we came back home for a nap and then Mom, Hannah, and I went to the movies. We saw Journey in to the Center of the Earth. It was a 3D movie. I can't remember the last time I went to the movies, much less a 3D movie. It was really cool. Great kid movie. I left them after that movie and they went to dinner. They went back to the movies to see Kit Kittredge. Mom just called and said they laughed and cried and loved the movie. I hope they make it home before the storm.

Speaking of storm, I am going to post this quick in case our power goes out. They are calling for some strong storms and lightening.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Mylie has a stomach virus. It hasn't been very bad. Just lots of poops and generally not feeling well. We have spent the past few days inside. I guess that was a good thing, because when we went to the doc to day, they said that she is still contagious. So, hopefully this will pass quick.....

New Sites!

I have updated my list of favorite sites! The 1st new one is my sister Regan Ann, she is about to go to Europe for a month and a half. She is going to keep us updated on her blog about her travels.

The second one is my friend Tamera. Sew Unique is her blog that she started for the purpose of showing off and selling her new T shirts. They are awesome! I got one for Mylie and have since ordered for birthday presents. If you can think it she can sew it! Check her out. Also, a portion of the proceeds goes to a really good cause! Read about all of that here!

Whew, we have been busy.

The past couple of weeks has been full of fun! We have spent many days playing with friends, going to the lake and having fun. My friend Tamera and I went to another friends house a few days ago and the kids all swam and played on the giant slide. Mylie even went down the slide and loved it! Saturday, we went to the lake with Scotty and Shell. They took their grandsons as well. We fished, swam, and grilled out. We had a blast. It rained a little on us and blew up a storm, but we pulled in to the dock and by that time the storm had blown over so we went back out! We had a great day. Sunday, Justin and I went to Jake and Janet's for a pool party. We played pool volleyball and the girls won just about every time. Woo Hoo!

This last picture of Mylie, I thought it was so cute! I was in the shower and I look over and she had fallen asleep in her exersaucer! I ran down stairs to get my camera! It was too funny not to share.
