A few of my favorite things...

Ellis Faith turned 9 months on the 11th. Each day she becomes a little more adventurous. We have mastered crawling and are now onto pulling up. She is very proud of herself when she does successfully pull up on a table, in her bed, on the bar stools, etc. A few of her favorite things are potted plants, reading daddy's newspaper or mom's magazines, and the blinds on the back door. I can't believe how fast her first year has gone. I started putting baby items this month in consignment sales. Going through everything was quit an emotional process. Gracie and Cole are in Dallas having a blast with the their grandparents. Ellis loves her brother and sister and can't wait to see them! We are ready for our Gracie and Cole to come back home too.

From snow to sunshine

I'm so behind on blogging these days. We've been blessed to spend our weekends with family and friends over the past month. Our parents came to celebrate Gracie's birthday in Feb. Uncle Clint and Allison came the first weekend in March which turned out to be a fabulous snow day! Sunday morning we woke up to huge snowflakes. A winter wonderland. We couldn't believe how heavy the snow was coming down. It was perfect for building a snowman, sledding, and snowball fights. This past weekend was just as beautiful but more spring like weather. Our dear friends Eric & Daphne invited us and the Slaons for a fun filled weekend at the Lake. Hiking, fishing, camp fires, we had a blast! This week I'm getting the kids ready for Spring Break. Gracie and Cole will be spending their vacation next week with the grandparents in Dallas. Luke, Ellis Faith, & I are going to enjoy some quiet time at home. I'm looking forward to completing some unfinished projects. But will miss my babies!!!!
