A Royal Wedding

Kaitlin did not get up early to watch the wedding but she did want to dress up for the occasion when she saw Princess Katherine on the television!


Every princess needs the perfect accessory a blanket!


Admiring the button detail sleeves! Very appropriate for a morning wedding!


So excited for the big day!


Kaitlin even picked the perfect shoe! Maybe she wanted to dress like “ The Princess and the Frog!”


I found some Princess Katherine paper dolls that we are decorating and we are making tiaras! We will be all  princess today!

April Showers

April showers were the theme of the weekend in NWA! It has been raining since Friday and we have gotten around 10 inches of rain. All that rain finally ran out of places to go and this was one of the roads to our neighborhood ! I picked Kaitlin up from school early and got detoured around the flood. When they say “ flash flood” it is serious stuff. The water started flooding out every road home and it became bad very quickly! After attempting 6 different ways home and 2 hours of waiting we finally made it home SAFELY! Kaitlin was so patience and was so pleasant during the entire ordeal! We were so glad to be home after that exciting adventure!


It finally stopped raining last night and the roads dried up enough for us to go to Bible Study! We have started Testimony Tuesday where a woman from our church shares her testimony every week. It is so encouraging and such a blessing to see what God has done in their life and I was so glad the flood did not keep us away!


So with ALL our April Showers I am hoping for LOTS of May Flowers!

Happy Easter

It is still raining in NWA, and it was a soggy Easter morning. It was pouring on the way to church, and it rained all day. That did not dampen our Easter! We sang my FAVORITE Easter song at church, Christ the Lord is Risen Today! We had a wonderful church service with a guest, Pastor Junior Hill. He delivered such an awesome message on salvation this morning.  He passed us in the hall after the service, and it took everything in me not to give him a big hug!  Then we went back to the nursery to get our baby girl and take her home …


The Easter Bunny came to see Kaitlin! Don’t you LOVE her Easter pail!


She has been VERY excited about Easter!


Kaitlin and the birthday boy!!


Our 1st timer picture!!


Kaitlin wishing you a happy Easter!


We missed celebrating with our family during this special day, but we were adopted by some sweet friends for a wonderful Easter lunch! Kaitlin took a nap at their house while we enjoyed some delicious food.  The weekend really made Northwest Arkansas feel like home!

I am so thankful for a day to celebrate the Risen Lord!

Happy Birthday Kory!! The big 30!

Happy Birthday Kory!!!! How special to celebrate your 30th birthday on Easter Sunday! You are a wonderful husband and father! I hope you have a wonderful day! Your 30th birthday will be hard to top!

Kory got a special present a few day early! He LOVES his IPAD and so does Kaitlin! Kory is a very good “sharer” and has been playing nicely and letting Kaitlin play with his new toy!


Even though we may be in Razorback country, your favorite color is Big Orange!


Do we only wear orange when we take family pictures???


I hope you have a wonderful day! Looking forward to many more birthdays! Your girls love you very much!

Earth Day 2011

I was unaware that we moved to “tornado alley” when we made the move to NWA! We have had BAD storms all week and my weather radio has been going crazy with all the watches and warnings!! I am getting use to “teacup size hail” and severe super cells! On Friday night we had a tornado heading straight for us.


My TV and radio were going crazy with warnings of our specific town and they advised us to get in our “ safe spot”, saying the tornado is heading straight for the neighborhood next to ours. I got Kaitlin in our bathroom, not an easy task getting a two year old in a tiny room! I had my arsenal of tricks ready with markers, maracas, coloring books, goldfish, animal crackers, and vanilla wafers. If I was going to be trapped we were not going to be grumpy, bored, or hungry. I was too scared to take a picture but I now am wishing I had! Kaitlin was so good in that little room and never whined or cried.


We are so thankful the tornado passed us and that we had no damage. It was the most scared I have ever been. Conversely Kaitlin had SOOOO much fun and was excited about her new playroom in the bathroom. She was wired after the bathroom containment and went to bed extra late. Happy Earth Day 2011!

Baby Shoes

I LOVE baby shoes!!  It is not an easy task finding basic white shoes! Kaitlin was breaking in her new shoes for Easter and they are just the sweetest things ever! I think the ruffle socks help make them extra sweet!


We have been trying to stay busy reading and crafting but I am quickly running out of new things to do!


Kaitlin is feeling a little better…… Hoping she wakes up feeling great so we can go the Easter playgroup! We have been looking forward to it ALL month!

Making a sick day Fun!

Kaitlin is still on the mends from her nasty ear infection and started out the day kinda grumpy. I got us out of the house and drove us around for a couple hours. I think both of us were getting cabin fever. Poor thing just does not look like she feels good! After our driving adventure Kaitlin was in a much better mood!


Gigi sent us some Easter crafts and they saved the day! We decorated eggs all afternoon and we had a fun day even if we were under the weather!


I was very impressed she could peel the backing off the stickers and place the sticker on the egg! I thought it would be a joint effort but she wanted zero help from me!She might be crafty and we all know she did not get that trait from me!


Some of Kaitlin’s masterpieces! She was so proud!


After Lego time and marker time I would call the day a fun day!


Hoping that she feels much better tomorrow!

Spring Fever

Kaitlin had another bought of spring fever over the weekend. Poor little girl has another ear infection! We are hoping she feels better very soon! 


Kaitlin may not feel good but she sure looks cute!


Ready to feel better!


Kaitlin is learning to cover her eyes when we play hide and seek. Clearly she is still in the learning phase!

Daisy Days

After nap time we have music time in Kaitlin’s room! She loves to dance and spin. It is so fun to see her light up when the music comes on!


Sweet girl even dances when the music is over. She has a song in her heart and dances to it!


She likes to cheer after every song! Or is she just saying “ Touchdown Tennessee” a few months early!


Come on Mom! Enough pictures! Start your dancing


This is one of my favorite parts of the day!
