Happy Birthday Lulu!

Happy Birthday Lillian!
I can't believe two years has gone by!

We decided not to find out if you were a boy or girl before you
were born.
And when you came out it was the best surprise ever!
Daddy went and bought you this beautiful dress just a few hours after
you were born.
It was an icy snow storm but Daddy had to get his first born
something pretty.

Look at those feet. Are they not the cutest feet you've ever seen?

Two years later and your just the sweetest little girl ever!

We've all been sick.
The weather has been horrible.
So any big party plans have been put on hold.
But, we did get the best package ever in the mail.

Grandma Davis saved the day by making some sweet, precious, gifts.
This is a little dolly quilt.
I love it!
Lulu loves covering her babies with it.
It's just perfect!

But that's not all.
Grandma's been busy!
Look at all these beautiful baby outfits.
And the dolly in the middle is an American Baby, baby doll.
She fits perfectly into all these handmade outfits.

We just love them!
I've never seen anything more darling!
It was the perfect present for a two year old.
Lulu's been having so much fun dressing up
her new dolly!
Thank you Grandma Davis for all your hard work!

Everyone else seems to be feeling better.
Except for me.
It will be about eight months until I'm feeling better!

Lulu has a Secret!

Lulu got this tent for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa Fryman.
She loves playing in it.
I find her hiding out in it and hiding things in it (like the remote)!
( Sorry,I don't know why this is underlined but I can't seem to take it off!)

Do you want to take a peek inside with me?

Uh oh, I've been caught!

Here's what she likes to do inside.
She has her dolly and her blanket and pillow.
And she lies there.
I don't know why she can't do this in bed?
In bed, she screams and cries, and shakes the bed violently.

But here, she quietly lies.

When she sees me peeking in she gets up and re-Velcros
the tent.
I guess it's suppose to be a secret that she can actually lie still.

Look at those little hands go!
(I know it's only something a mother could love!)

She's making sure I'm not watching and I won't know her secret!


Good Morning!
I hope everyone is doing well!
have been snowed in for the last five days!
Not really trapped, but can't really go anywhere.
School has been closed all week.
Sky did go to a friends house and sled in the snow all day.
He came home at six and went straight to bed. He didn't get up the next morning until
9:00AM. He had that much fun!

Does this look like fun?
Maybe it does if your in Southern California.
Like my entire family!
But I'm starting to get cabin fever!

It doesn't really look like a whole lot of snow when you look at the pictures.
But it feels like a lot.
It feels like we're buried in it!

Happy Birthday Bobby!
35 years!
Did you know 35 years ago I woke up and my pet parakeet, Chipper, was dead?
Just lying there in the cage, dead as can be, and I started crying.
Pam, my mother's friend, came in and said "don't cry, it will be okay, you have a new baby brother"!!!
I guess the trade off was okay!

I'm so proud of you Bobby and all that you've accomplished!
You've done a lot and overcame a lot.
Your inspirational!
And there are still so many good things ahead!
Love you!

She's Just Trying to Help!

Lately Lulu has been dragging her new sit-n-spin all around to use as a stepping stool.
She's really quite resourceful and can get to all kinds of new places using this method!
Unfortunately, this isn't quite what we had in mind when we got it for her for

Christmas Recap

I hope everyone had happy holidays!
We had a fabulous Christmas and New Years here in the Ozarks!
And now it's snowing beautiful white blankets of snow.
It was supposed to be just an inch but I've counted three so far!
Thank goodness Lulu got this adorable hat and scarf from
Grandma and Grandpa Davis.
She's also wearing the coat you got her a while back.
So she's all set!

Kevin got me a new set of dishes for Christmas and I just
love them!
They are huge!
And square!
And red!

The dinner plate is the size of a platter.
I served Christmas dinner on them and it was the first time
I've never seen Kevin not go back for seconds.

And look at this coffee mug!
Now that's a cup of coffee!

I really do love them!
Thanks sweetie!
