Mary got her FIRST haircut from our very good friend Marybeth! I was gonna wait until her birthday but as we all got our haircut she sat and watched and waited and every-so-often she would say, "My turn?" she really wanted MB to cut her beautiful long hair! So, she got an inch and a half cut off. Such a big girl!!

Our house gets all in a buzz when Marybeth has come over to "do hair salon" as Anna says! Everyone just loves to see her - she's amazing!

After the wait...

In 2003 Jason and I replaced our double bed with a queen mattress. Our room was so small that we just had the frame. Last tax season I really wanted a bed (and found a cheap one). It was a sleigh bed but the dresser that went with it was just ridiculous! The drawers were small and not sturdy so Jason and I decided to "WAIT." I'm so glad we did! I'm so glad we didn't settle!!

Some friends of ours are moving and they too upgraded their bed so we bought the whole bedroom suite!! It's absolutely beautiful!!! We got the bed - which is taller than Isaac!! We got the dresser and the chest of drawers for the price of one piece of furniture!! We are super excited! I'm really starting to feel "grown-up" now!!

I love this picture! He yells..."STUCK!!!" - He is SUPER CUTE!

And in the midst of all this arranging - my friend Julie has helped me organize the girls closet! It's amazing! We are working on the girls room - it's not done - but this closet is! We are working one closet at a time!! Thanks JULES!!

Hopefully soon I can show more ...

Slumber Party


One day our school will get on a weekly schedule - but for now we are enjoying the little breaks! We were out of school Thursday and Friday because our teachers had to go to an ACSI Conference (accreditation thing). So I had Francie and Will over and Friday Hannah and Ian joined us EARLY! I love when they all come over - they just do their own thing and enjoy each other! We let them have a slumber party and all sleep in the living room! They stayed up watching movies until 2 AM! They were so good ... and cute ... and I love them all SO much!!

Love these of the boys!


I love a FULL table!

Good times!

After 2 hours and 45 minutes Jason and Noah got to meet Jason Heyward!! That was a very exciting moment for them! Noah got Jason Heyward to sign his baseball card and Jason had a baseball signed! It was SO exciting!!

I had to stay with the babies - so I left the picture taking to Jason - he did a GREAT job!! So happy for y'all boys!!

Let's go BRAVES!!!

Spring Cleaning

Sorta! We are moving things around at work which involved a lot of cleaning out and the finding of treasures!! There was a carpet cleaner in the top of a closet here at work! They let me take it home and it's like magic!! LOVE IT!!



So this is what "exciting" and "fun" is when you grow up!?! Hate it but it's true! And now...I see I missed a spot! Happy cleaning!!

Celebrating Life

No one FREAK OUT!! I'm not PREGNANT!

Sanctity of Life Sunday was today! I was so motivated! Jason did a great job tackling hard topics and very emotional ones too! So today, I want to celebrate life! I'm so thankful for it (mine) and all the wonderful people who I've had to privilege to know and love! Life is a beautiful thing!
