Emory's Birthday Party

Today, the first day of Spring, Emory's mommy and daddy planned an amazing Big Top Carnival for Em's 2nd birthday. But Mother Nature had other plans, it was a high of 47 with snow on the the Big Top Carnival moved to the gym at a local church down the street....and it worked wonderfully!!! They had car races, bean bag toss, the bounce house, pick a duck, the ball in a bucket, face painting, bowling, and a cake walk. It was so much fun!! Emory, thank you for such a FUN party....we really had a blast!!!

American Girl

Last week, Paul brought us back some surprises from Minnesota. He brought Hudson a fun St. Patty Day's hat and a wolfy named Jacob. For me, well, I got a beautiful strand of black and white pearls with a matching bracelet. But Ella, well, she got her FIRST AMERICAN GIRL...a bitty baby. We named her Gracie. So, on the Friday of Spring Break us and the Christian's headed to Dallas to eat lunch with the 'Daddy's' and then hit American Girl. It was magical. Ella was so excited to get 'Gracie's' hair done and play for a while. It was crazy crowded and it was a 2 hour wait just to get her hair done. Here are a few pics of our fun day!!!!

After our adventurous day in Dallas, we ended our day by eating dinner with the Daddy's. An exhausting but fabulous day!!
