Snow Angel




We have had our share of snow here this January. I love to watch it fall and I adore that first snowball fight and getting to put fresh footprints in perfectly perfect snow. Then....Im over it. Its wet, its nasty and it is in my opinion just plain ole' gross when it's melting. But the thing I have come to love about snow most of all is seeing my baby all bundled up and ready to play ;-) I hope I have seen her all bundled up for the last time this winter though....bring on the flip flops and tank tops!

Back To December
















Remember way back when I said Georgie had a gazillion parties. Well I promise I will EVENTUALLY get them all on here...maybe. This was her party at her Papaw's house. SHE ADORED her horse cupcakes and her giant cupcake cake! Vicki and Dad worked really hard to make her party special and due to a death in her family Vicki didn't get to partake in all the fun...and Fun was had. She loved it! 3 was an awesome bday for this little one. She got all she could ever want and MORE :-)

Mimi/Gigi/Me




We spent almost 2 and 1/2 weeks all told with Mom and Chris over the holidays. There was her birthday,Christmas and then of course our wonderful vacation. I wish there was a magical way that G could understand why she can't see them more. She asks me a lot, "Can Mimi come to dinner tonight? Or will Papi be where ever we are going? Its sweet and I explain to her they are too far away. Last night she said, "Like Aunt Natalie?" Then I was tasked with explaining that Aunt Nat was only 2.5 hours away while Mimi was 3 almost 4 times as far...I don't think a three year old gets that. She walked away and then came back and said "Like Papaw?" Well....no baby he is as far away as Aunt Nat. Whew. She finally relented that the best way to get there was by airplane and she was ready to go. Whew. She does like to point out a lot that Papi should move Mimi back to Arkansas...so Papi if you' re ready this...you have strict orders. LOL. And just for the record, I was not the one who taught her to say that. OVER. AND. OVER. AGAIN. ;-)

Pictures Telling A Story...

At first she wasn't quite sure...then the smile and she decides this is awesome......I love that you can see the water dripping from her skirt, I love that she didn't mind a bit and I am so proud she inherited my love for the water :-)

My Bestie





I have a lot of friends. I love my friends. They don't come after my family... they are my family and I love them so hard. I love them all just as if they were my blood. That being said, I can now honestly say that I never knew what a true "sidekick" was or a "wingman" or whatever until she came along. She is my right hand man, my other arm and I honestly don't know what I would do without her.

18 Days





18 days. That is how long Jonathon has been on vacation. He has soaked up every second he could with this baby and tonight I can tell he is so sad he has to go back to work tomorrow. I see it in his face and I see all the extra hugs and kisses he has given her (and they are always plentiful but tonight they are coming by the bucketload). The snow day gave them an extra day together but I think tonight it really sank in. They have so much fun together! We have so much fun together. I am glad they are my "tripod" and we have eachother. I am thankful for GROUPHUGS...the way G says it all runs together like one word and I am thankful for what a wonderful father my husband is. BC dude he rocks it. He is UH-MAZING. Can't wait for the weekend already ;-) Say a little pray as we all forge full speed ahead back to work and school and the real world tomorrow (given the weather cooperates). We all need it.

Gigi and Mimi







Lil Pickle Bottom with her Mimi. These two REALLY like one another :-) Mom always said no vacations until she was five. Of course she made a whole week past her third birthday before that happened. LOL. They are two peas in a pod. I do get a little break from the incessant, "Mama, Mama", when my mom is around. It is more, "Mimi, Mimi." :-) She is indeed a very lucky little girl. In other news....WE ARE SNOWED IN! YEPPERS. SNOWED IN! For this morning anyway.
