These photos were taken in the early morning hours, Rhett has decided that we should party through the night and sleep all day. He's second tooth on the bottom has arrived and you can see the top four all pushing there way in, poor thing is just not his normal self. Oh, and do you like his tongue because that is what he does all the time. It is kind of like having a big dog panting with their tongues sticking out all the time, at least he has much nicer breath.

We have been getting ready for a garage sale this weekend. Why is it the things that never get used, you pull them out to sell them and that is the moment it becomes your child's favorite toy? You can all cry a sad tear for Stella because this thing is out the door, we are not keeping it!

These are my purple paddles. I got tired of caring around ugly brown spoons, I decided that I would make them look pretty.

I am having a garage sale this weekend. Jason and I were working in the garage trying to get things ready and Stella was having fun in the front yard watching the neighbors mow their grass. She said a few cheers for them and encouraged them. I hope that they did not think she was taunting them!

These are Mrs. Piggy and Mr. Cow they are suppose to be in the flower bed, somehow they always end up in my daughters hands being used for a puppet show.

Today was Stella's program at school. Yes, they thought that it would be a good idea to put my daughter on a stage in front of people and that she would act like a little lady. I wish that I could have whatever they were smoking because I knew that it was never going to happen.

I actually said a prayer this morning about this situation, Please Lord in Heaven, Let Stella do good. Let her keep her dress down, her hands to herself and only mildly embarrass us. Thank you and Amen. Well, he did answer my prayers, she kept her dress down, her hands to herself and only mildly embarrassed us.

First on stage was our friend's daughter SB. You want to talk about a little angel. She sat up on that stage and was everything you could wish for and more. What a little angel. I also love the look on the little boys face that is next to her.

Pretty sure that she just saw her mommy, who by the way just had twin boys and looks amazing.

Then we get to Stella's class, it is looking pretty good walking on the stage.
Then she starts to wave to people. you would think that she saw Jason or I in the audience. No, we were in the way back, she just thought that everyone was there to watch her show and a show she did put on.
I think that she is thinking about all of this, her friend A is looking at her, pretty much A is probably saying "Now Stella we need to be good up here and sing our song, don't get us in trouble"
Rhett just hanging out with me, totally unaware that his sister is about to make mommy and daddy go gray way to early in life.
Then the singing starts. I have to point out the little boy third from the right. I love this faces that he makes through out the whole time on stage. So funny, just makes me laugh.
This is when she notice the instruments behind her, thank the good Lord she did not go and pick any of them up!

Now, here is a real jewel, we were able to take a little video with our camera. It is not of the best quality but you will get the idea and the reason for the laughter in the audience.

I am blessed, that is all I can say I am blessed. I have two of the happiest children around. All you have to do is look at them and you will get a smile.

Even when they are not smiling, they are still smiling. Happy, that is what my babies are, happy.


Who says that you need to crawl, not my kids. They feel that we put these wonderful hardwood floors into our house just for them. They both have done this and I find it very funny. It is a lot of work to get up on all fours and actually crawl, not to mention how much it might hurt their poor little knees. Stella did this and now Rhett is doing it. Scooting is a much cooler and easier way of getting around the house these day. Rhett will go up on all fours but then he is like what they heck, I do not think so!
Working to get all that weight up on all fours is also a little bit of a challenge.
Nope do not think I am going to do that today.
OK we will try one more time.
Mom, you so silly!

Stella just enjoying the rain. I loved just watching her and remembering how I use to do this when I was a little girl. I knew that she was just dieing inside to run out and dance in it but we all know that her father would have a heart attack at the thought. If it had been just us, we would have been having a good dance party but for this day, we just got to watch God water the earth.

We had a wonderful evening going for a walk in the park. I think that these are some of my favorite moments in life right now. My little family spending time with one another in the great outdoors.
