Flower Girl & Ring Bearer

Savannah & Isaac were in a wedding this weekend. Actually, all four of us were in the wedding!
Savannah was the flower girl and Isaac was the ring bearer, of course. They did wear shoes, just not in these pictures. :) They did really well, I was proud of them! Isaac chewed on the pillow and wandered a little as they went down the isle, but oh well! They were cute!

Isaac & Savannah at Pawpaw's

Playing in the dirt - you can see Joe's Grandma's house down the hill.
This is at Joe's Dad's place. Needless to say, the 4-wheeler wasn't on.
Isaac didn't want to let go of his strawberry!

Funny Moments...

So, my husband has an abundance of chest hair, but is losing hair up top on his head. That may be a little too personal, but it is important to this little story. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago or so, when Savannah and Isaac were on the floor playing with him, he told them that the hair on his head was falling out onto his chest, and regrowing there. S. and I. were amazed.

Today I was getting Savannah and Isaac dressed and I said "Savannah, come in here and let me fix your hair!" Savannah promptly answered, "Mama, I don't have hair anymore! It all fell out!" I said, "what are you talking about, Silly?" She responded "Yes Mama, it all fell out, and it's right here." She then grinned and pointed to her chest. Ha! Then of course I had to tell y'all about it!

Silly Girl

She is so sweet and funny...
Did I ever mention how she chipped her tooth? She fell at the Library, of all places!

A Birthday Party at the Park

This sweet little girl had a Birthday party on Saturday! Isn't she precious? :-)
She is 3 yrs old.

Savannah got a little chilly in this outfit Saturday - it ended up being unseasonably cold!
This is one of the birthday girl's sweet brothers. He is a yr old & so cute!

They had fun making rock castles. :)

These are only a few of the pictures that I took. You can tell that they had a good time!

Just a couple SWEET pictures...

I was doing a little "photography" practice today, mostly flowers and things, but just happened to capture these sweet expressions at the right moment... I am so glad they are finally feeling better! :-)

Peyton's Visit

I have been planning to put these pictures up for Joe's Mama (Mimi) for a couple of weeks now! This is at her house, all the kiddos had fun messing up everything!

Peyton. Isn't he a cutie? :-)

Isaac & Peyton had so much fun "building" things with crayons.
They love to hula hoop! Isaac looks so funny in this picture!
These are pictures from a couple weeks ago, when Joe's cousin Amber came to visit, and brought her sweet little boy, Peyton. These cousins are so cute together! :-)

Happy 101 Award

I've been meaning to do this post for a little while, but hadn't gotten around to it yet. it is!

Caroline, from "She Walks in the Woods", sent me this fun blog award! :-) Thank you Caroline!
I love reading her blog & looking at her great pictures! Check it out!!

Ten Things that Make Me Happy:

1. My family! I love my Hubby, Savannah and Isaac so much!

2. Hanging out with my husband. alone. We haven't gone on a "date" in a while, and I'm about ready for one!! However, we did get to watch a movie while S & I were asleep last night! We watched "It's Complicated" - great movie! Hilarious!

3. Hanging out with my sisters. We have so much fun just laughing together!

4. Down time. I feel cheated if I don't have a little peaceful quiet time during the day, like during nap time. It is nice to be needed, but it is also nice to just have a little time NOT doing anything really...

5. Bible & prayer time. ( I don't mean to be a copy cat, Caroline) Since having the "babies", it is hard for me not to worry, and reading God's word helps me to have peace - and I hope it helps me to be a better mother & wife... But, I would be lying if I said that I absolutely read my Bible everyday. I am "striving" to have that quiet time with God & draw closer to Him, but I definitely fall short in many ways. Also, I have to clarify that "Bible time" & "downtime" are not in the same category , because when I finally get down time, my brain needs a rest too, and I am not absorbing much mentally. I try to do Bible time in the morning, downtime is in the afternoon.

6. Baking. I love trying new cake & icing recipes. I also love decorating cakes, I'm just not very skilled at it yet!

7. A fresh cup of good coffee in the morning!

8. A hike or a good brisk walk. And I strongly dislike treadmills.

9. Coffee shops or bakeries. (I know, those baked goods don't help my figure) S & I love going to these places too - especially when it means doughnuts!

10. A good book.

Okay, I am going to add an eleventh - it just seems necessary.

11. A creative outlet. Right now I am practicing with my camera, trying not to use my automatic settings... I also love to paint, but haven't been able to do that in a while, unless you count finger paint! ;-)

Alright, I know this is getting ridiculous, but I am adding a 12th.

12. Taking S & I to just about anywhere. I love the excitement and enthusiasm that they have!

I could add more, but this is getting really long!

Anyone who wants to do this 10 favorite things list is welcome!! Consider yourself tagged!

Bad Weather & Under the Weather

I'm including these two fun pictures taken when we weren't having bad weather, and we weren't "under the weather". I don't like to be overly negative, and I know how blessed we are!! :)

That said, I just want to say, we have been feeling a little poorly this week. Specifically, Isaac and Savannah have had a fever, and now have developed a sore throat and some congestion. Isaac got it first, and I didn't realize it was a virus. Yes, we did go and get ice cream while he had a low fever. Later Thursday night Savannah came down with it, and last night the hoarse cough with congestion started. Needless to say, long night! We have been doing lots of cuddling and watching "Jungle Book".

As everyone in Mississippi knows, we have been having bad weather lately. My heart goes out to the people that lost loved ones in Yazoo City, and Choctaw County last weekend! We spent last Saturday afternoon in the hallway with tornado alarms going off (several times). It is both a blessing and a curse to live right by the volunteer fire department, and hear the siren go off so loud! It is hard to keep 2 small children calm when the alarm goes off! But, needless to say we were (and are) very blessed, and didn't have a tornado touch down close to us! Unfortunately, we are having bad weather again today, with a chance of tornadoes. I hope and pray that it isn't a repeat of last weekend! Anyway, keep Mississippi in your prayers! Also, please pray for those families that lost loved ones last week!

"For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." ~Romans 5:6-8
