Sunday Morning Photo Shoot

I hardly ever get to take pictures of the girls on Sunday mornings. We are dashing out of the house barely (read rarely) making it to church on time! And by the time we get home, we either have some remains of lunch on us or just simply not in the mood to smile for the camera!

So sweet because she is looking up at Big Sister in this one, love it!

St. Patrick's Day

A sneaky leprechaun snuck into our house and turned Olivia's cereal milk green on St. Paddy's Day. He left Ana Blair's alone because the leprechaun is a little afraid of Ana Blair!

Prayer Request

I linked up to this blog: and literally could not process what I was reading. Words cannot express what this poor girl is going through.

Who can believe that sweet Pumpkin Face is big enough to have pigtails??

And she loved them! So uncharacteristic for Ana Blair, but she sat still and did not fuss one time while I fixed her hair! And she made a beeline to the mirror to check herself out as soon as I was done!

Happy Happy

Thirty-one years ago today, my life was forever changed. I wasn't even born yet. But that was the day my sweet Michael entered the world.
There aren't words to describe how happy I am when I see (or more likely hear) you and the girls laughing hysterically

There is no way I could put into words how you are my love, my best friend and my favorite part of every day

I can not find the words to explain how my heart feels when I see you share a tender moment with the girls and I know that they have been blessed with a wonderful father

And I can't tell you how your sweet smile and contagious laugh still make my heart go pitter pat

Words fail me.
You do not.
Happy Birthday.
We love you!

Show Us Your Life: What is your Typical Day like?

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

Because I'm tired of not having anything new on my blog, I thought I'd let you in on what a typical day in my life would be! Our schedules vary from day to day, but some parts are consistent:
7-7:30: Ana Blair wakes up...Michael or I will get her up and try to keep her quiet until Olivia wakes up.
7:45-8: Olivia wakes up and we play in her room. Olivia and I cuddle under the covers and Ana Blair runs around like a wild child!
8-8:15: head down for breakfast. Usually cereal or yogurt for the girls and a Diet Cherry Coke for myself (not a breakfast person)
Okay...this is where things go kind of crazy...
On Mondays, we get ready for Olivia's gymnastics class at 11, go to lunch with some of the the girls from gymnastics, speech at 1:30 and then home for Ana Blair's nap.
On Tuesdays, Ana Blair and I take Olivia to school at 9. Then, she and I go to The Little Gym at 9:30. On these days, I put her in bed by 11, so we can pick Olivia up from school at 2. Run a quick errand or two, then Olivia has dance at 3:30.
On Wednesdays, Ana Blair and I drop Olivia off at preschool at 9, then go to the Y (a new addition to our schedule), home for a nap and pick Olivia up at 1:30 and off to Farragut Primary for speech.
On Thursdays, preschool drop off, Y, nap and pick up at 2.
On Fridays, we do whatever we want! A trip to the Y, the mall or a playdate. Or on really great Fridays, the girls go to Spring City for the day and night! back to normal...After naps, we get up and play or run any errands. I usually get my computer "work" (play) in while Ana Blair naps and Olivia is pretty good at entertaining her long enough for me to get a few chores done around the house.
I usually feed the girls dinner around 5, then we go upstairs for bath time!
By then, Michael is usually home and we play in the playroom until about 6:30 and then its bedtime!
That's when Michael and I usually eat dinner and watch TV or just be lazy!
So, my life is pretty busy, but we love schedules!
