I am entering a contest to win a gift card for a new swimsuit. Here is the link to some modest mom-like suits, but still cute and fun. Check out their site

Catching Up

So, I may be a little behind, but I will give you a brief update on my family.

We had a fantastic Easter, but I forgot to take pictures of the girls in their Easter dresses.

On Easter evening Lillie fell off her chair (a whole two feet) and complained about her wrist hurting, but with no swelling or bruising, I decided to have her just "sleep it off". By the next morning there was a little swelling and I could tell it was really hurting her so before we left for Tennessee I took her to the ER.

After a quick 1 1/2 hour visit, and 3 x-rays later we left with her arm splinted and in a sling. Our family doctor actually said after taking it off the following Friday, that it was wrapped better than most casts he sees. :)

We had a nice visit to Tennessee, where we went to the Smokies,

WonderWorks, and Ripleys Aquarium.

We also were part of the biggest/strongest storm system that had hit that area. After almost 9 hours of constant tornado warnings, and some very scary times, we ended up with only some slight hail damage to our car. We are very thankful to God who protected us.

Lillie had her 6th birthday - WOW!! I can't believe she is that old already, boy does time fly!! We let her spend the day picking what we did, and she choose to go to Dairy Queen for lunch, bowl and shopped at Toys R Us. That evening we had cupcakes with the McBride children.

Lillie wanted to color her hair for her bday, so we got a few of her girlfriends and Gracie's girlfriends over one day and put highlights in. It was a lot of fun, and the girls are so cute with their teal, purple, and pink highlights.

We have had a pretty nice spring thus far, and am looking forward to an even nicer summer together. Hope you enjoy your days, because the time we have with each other is precious and a gift from God.
