Eve Turns 4!

Tonight we celebrated Eve's 4th Birthday. She had a family roundup and all the kids showed up in their cowgirl gear. I wore my boots and loved every minute! I also got to ride Eve's horse! Happy Birthday, Eve! We love you!

Fun Times At The Pool

Cottage Living

My Birthday isn't for awhile, but Grammy and Pappy decided to give me my gift early. I am now the proud owner of a Cozy Cottage. It lives on my back porch and I LOVE it! It has a doorbell that really goes ding dong!
It also has a mail slot...Mommy sent me a piece of mail already!
Last but not least, it has a cordless phone so I can talk while I cook and clean my cottage. Please feel free to stop by anytime!

Pink Boots

Nash and Nora's Mommy let me borrow these pink boots and I LOVE them! Mommy and Daddy are considering buying me my very own pair for Christmas, so we're trying these out!
I think they make a great fashion statement with my shorts!

Tea With Grammy

Grammy came for a visit today so Mommy could run a few errands. We had afternoon tea consisting of water, bunny crackers, and apple slices. We even put a fresh flower on the table to add to the atmosphere! I am working on being dainty but I get very excited when Grammy lets me pour my "tea" all by myself. Needless to say, we had a delightful time!

"Great" Sunday

This was an extra special Sunday! Mum and Papa came for the afternoon and brought Grandma and Grandpa Great and Great Aunt Vickie! As you can see, we mostly read books. I got all kinds of special attention and that is always a good thing! Mum and Papa didn't get in any of Mommy's pictures - but we had a super fun time playing together! Thanks for a great visit! I love you!!

Partial Sleepover

Emma Claire's Mommy and Daddy had a date tonight - so she came over for dinner, baths, and bedtime. We ate pizza and had a scoop of ice cream for dessert. As you can tell, we enjoyed every last drop!
Before baths, we rested on the couch and watched a few minutes of Finding Nemo. After that, we went to sleep. EC's Mommy and Daddy came to pick her up and put her in her own crib at home. I sure do love it when friends come to play until bedtime! I can't wait to have a real sleepover with all my pals!

Prima Isabella

My Prima (Cousin) came with her new bike trailer attached to Tio Jeff's bike. We rode all around my street and had a blast. I love my cousin and am thankful to live so close to her!

The Perfect "Pear"

Betsy & Ben's Wedding Favors...............Too Cute!

Sunday With William

We almost forgot to post this picture...William spent the night at Mum's on Saturday while the grown ups went to the wedding. Mum let us sit in her special desk while we ate breakfast and watched a cartoon. Life is good!

Planting Pumpkins

Last year we planted pumpkins a little late -as a result, we had pumpkins in December. Papa decided we would plant pumpkins yesterday in hopes of having them in October/November. Here we are planting and watering. We will give you a full pumpkin report in the Fall.

After our planting, we packed up and headed home. It was a busy, but very fun week. I will spend a week in detox from Mum and Papa while Mommy gets me back on schedule!!

Bathtime Story

On Sunday morning I took a quick bath in Mum's tub. All on his own, William brought a stool in in and read The Little Engine That Could to me. I sure do love having a big boy cousin who takes great care of me!

Happy Father's Day

We spent most of our Father's Day on the road. I gave Daddy a special card and colored my 2007 page of his Daddy book. We woke up and Papa made his famous apple pancakes. They were so yummy!

Happy Father's Day to Daddy, Pappy, and Papa! We love you so much and are very thankful for you!

Betsy's Wedding

Mommy's best friend from Texas got married on Saturday night. Betsy was such an elegant and beautiful bride! I stayed home with the babysitter who happened to be the flower girl in Mommy and Daddy's wedding. We love you Betsy & Ben!

Wet Zone

We went to the Wet Zone on Monday afternoon. Last year, I was not a fan of big pools and splashing - but this summer, I am now a changed woman. I loved everything about the water park. William and I swam together and floated the lazy river. I even went down a baby slide alone! For those of you who didn't see me in water last summer...this is breaking news!

After our swim, we got dippin' dots. This was the best treat ever! My dots were rainbow colors and tasted fabulous! I love being a big girl and experiencing new things!

Meeting New Friends

I got to meet 2 new friends at William's baptism. Mommy's dear friend Kelly was there with her son, Joshua. He was born jusy two days after me. They love far far away and are in Texas for a visit! It was such a wonderful treat for Mommy! Luckily, we will see Kelly and her family a few more times this summer! Woo-Hoo!
Aunt Sissy's best friend was also there with her 3 boys. Here I am with Jonathan. The Mommies thought it was so funny because he is only 5 months older than me. As you can tell, we are at complete opposite ends of the growth chart! Hubba Hubba!

William's Baptism

We are finally home from our trip to Texas!

Our first big event was William's baptism last Saturday night. We sat in a special room especially for baptisms to we could be together as a family and celebrate. We are so proud of William and the example he sets for others!

After church, there was a celebration pizza and cake party. I got to stay up extra late AND I ate piece of cake!

Itty Bitty Bunny

My Friends - Noah, Lily, Eve, and Ellen found a tiny bunny in their front yard last night. Their Daddy was mowing the yard and luckily saw a little ball of fur in the grass. This morning we stopped by to take a quick peek. I patted the bunny very gently and blew him a kiss. I sure do love baby animals!

Playing With Paige

My friend Paige came to play this morning. We played together on her special quilt. She shared her blocks with me and I let her play with my doll. Thanks for a fun time, Paige!

Ava and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Nose!

I am having a chill out day because my nose is stuffy and quite nasty. The highlight of my Saturday so far was a trip to the Doctor's office with both Mommy and Daddy. Usually this is just a girl thing, but since it's Saturday, we made it a family event! The good news is my chest and ears are clear and look great! My doc says I am not contaigious as long as there's no fever. He gave me a very special sticker and ring for being so brave.

After the appointment, we went to Sam's and ate our way throught the free samples while we shopped. After a few more stops, we are finally home. Now I am singing in my crib and changing the channels on my monitor - MMM- I think Mommy needs to move the monitor. Mommy is patiently waiting for me to doze off into the land of nod.

Hope all my friends out there are having a fun day! I love you!
