Remember Christmas?

FINALLY retrieved a few pictures off of my camera.

I really just wanted these of my grandmothers with my girls.



My computer freaks when I try to edit any pictures, but I just love these.

Latest Picture of the 4 of Us

Taken tonight just after our last (regular season) home game of the year.  We won (!), but played pretty bad.


Bright & Windy & Weird

We spent a little time outside again on a pretty afternoon, but it was a little too windy, and, we didn't last long.


Fun fact about this girl:  she is putting everything in her nose.  Seriously.  Lunch meat, scrambled eggs, paper, toys.  I know, this too shall pass, but ....um, gross.  And, I have to watch her like a hawk.



Fun fact about this girl:  sometime before Christmas her jaw popped.  Now, it pops loudly every time she chews. Clearly, nothing she can do about it, but it drives me insane.  I can hardly eat in the same room her. Not sure if this will ever go away...I may need ear plugs for meal times.



But, aren't they both precious?

When I first saw these pictures 2 Samuel 22:29 came to mind.  "You are my lamp, O Lord; You turn my darkness into light."

So Thankful for the Simple Moments

This is a stressful time of the year for us.  Basketball has a few weeks left, and this season has not met expectations.  However, I have been given simple moments with the girls - getting to play outside and going on walks - that I am so very thankful for.

A year ago, I would have never imagined them playing nicely in the backyard, just so happy and peaceful.  If we can stay healthy, it should be a good spring!

Thank you Lord for these precious moments.




Aubrey did everything Langley did yesterday after preschool.  She followed her all over the yard, mimicked every move and sound.  They planted a garden, made breakfast, and played soccer.  :-)

We haven't even gotten the vehicles out yet.  They just run and play and share buckets, golf clubs, soccer balls, bubbles, and other random toys.

Showing Some Love

...by giving back massages?  


(Aubrey broke the door off of that dresser months ago, aren't we classy?)



Or, by letting Henry wear a special necklace?

Real Winter

I feel like we've had a real winter.  It doesn't happen much in Arkansas, but it's been below freezing every day for weeks, and we've had several rounds of winter weather.  There has been ice and snow on the ground at my house for 7 consecutive days.  OVER IT.  Arkansas is not equipped for this.

Needless to say, the girls and I have been stuck in the house for a week.  We spend most of the time in our pj's and are a little stir crazy!  Langley has gotten pretty mischievous; she's found a crayon in her room and colored in every book, unrolled half a roll of toilet paper into the potty - clogging it up, and as I thought she was nicely petting the dog and watching a show, she was actually licking him.  Bathing him like a cat.  Yes.

Aubrey torments her sister, and acts like a typical almost 2 year old.  Josh says she's the baby off the Croods.  She still cuddles, though, and is  made of pure sugar in my opinion :-)  The funniest thing she currently does is sing "let it go"  from the movie frozen, at the top of her lungs.  She usually does it when she's just waking up or trying to fall asleep.
