Grownup Fun with Good Friends

Margaret and Ashleigh

Ashleigh, Margaret, Me, and Georgia

I thought it would be fun to post some pictures of some grownup fun we had! We gave Marlee(who was also my roommate my freshman year) a baby shower in Jackson at Ryan and Ashleigh's house. It was a group of my dear friends that I pledged KD with at Mississippi State. We had absolutely the best time and laughed until we couldn't laugh anymore and reminisced until we couldn't think of anything else to reminisce about! We all stayed up way too late but it was so worth it. I am so very thankful for dear friends.

Right after hunting for Easter eggs
Our yearly Easter pic

All the children from the Moon Lake Easter egg hunt
Maggie had more fun hunting for eggs

"I found one mommy!"

The boys with Cooper

Now that is a keepsake!
Well, I am so behind on updating our blog! These are pictures from our wonderful Easter weekend. The kids had more to do than they could ever imagine. Cooper took the boys on a four wheeler ride. They of course had a blast. Saturday was the "2nd Annual Moon Lake Easter Egg Hunt." Our entire family was there- all 6 of the cousins. And of course we woke up Sunday morning to Easter baskets filled with goodies and eggs hidden in Big and Pie's yard. We spent Sunday afternoon at Rob and Anna's. It was a wonderful holiday! And most importantly because of our Lord's resurrection! Amen!

A B C Bible Verses

We are learning a Bible verse for each letter of the alphabet. This week is "C." I got the idea from the book ABC Bible Verses for Children by Susan Hunt. It is a wonderful resource! Anyway, I couldn't believe how well Maggie could recite it. I can only get her to do the beginningof it because she gets distracted very easily.

My Big Accomplishment!

I am absolutely up to my ears in drapes! When we moved into our new house (that is covered in windows) I said, "OH, I can save us a lot of money and make all the drapes!" Well, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. They are a whole different ballgame when comparing it to making clothes! It is just a TON of fabric to work with. Anyway, although I have done a lot of complaining along the way it was totally worth all the many hours and hours of work when I walked in our bedroom and saw them hanging. Now I just have to finish the drapes for the 4 other windows in our room. Ahhhhhhh!

Dance Party USA!

Our household loves Sugarland! The kids favorite song is "the ew, ew, ew song." So, my sweet husband cranked up the music last night and we had a family dance party. I danced all over the kitchen. (Most of you know that I absolutely love to dance!) I think mommy probably had the most fun. But from the pictures my precious son and daughter were having a mightly fine time as well. I highly recommend every family doing this with your children. The room was full of laughter and it was such an absolute JOY! Psalm 149:3 says " Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with tambourine and harp."

Flat Stanley Visits the Zoo

Flat Stanley went to the zoo with us yesterday. And boy did he have fun! He saw the hyacinth macaws immediately upon our arrival. Next, he saw the elephants and then the giraffes. We were thrilled when we walked up to the giraffes and they were standing right next to the fence. So, Flat Stanley got a very up close and personal visit from these long necked fellows! We are enjoying our visit with this new friend.

Verse of the Week

Our verse this week is Luke 2:9-11. "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a SAvior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

Biblical Virtues to pray for my children

"God, please cultivate in Tyner and Maggie the ability to show true humility toward all."
