One Proud Mama!

There is a Master Degree in the House!

Jim is officially a Seminary graduate! I received his diploma in the mail and held a surprise party for him honoring his hard work! He was so excited to see his diploma in the flesh and deserves such recognition for all that he has done! We are thankful to God for His abundant grace to get us through this time!

Look at Me!

A Great Reunion

Margo and I enjoyed a wonderful time with our good friends the Gentino's. Jules and I have been friends since before we had kids and it was so refreshing to catch up with her and her sweet kids!

Daddy and Mommy Date

Although Margo is our only child and she gets our undivided attention oftentimes she gets stuck doing adult outings. This evening was a time for her! We enjoyed a great time at an indoor mega bouncy house.

I've finally made use of my sewing machine and put it to good work making dresses for Margo. The pillowcase dress design is super easy once my friend Carrie and I figured out the pattern! Check out my sweet friend's blog with step-by-step instructions! Maybe I'm looking toward going into business.... then again maybe I'll just continue making them for my own little girl! :)

Sweet Friends

Margo and I met some sweet friends through playing at the park last year. After playing for almost an hour with our girls we moms finally mustered up the courage to ask for each other's numbers and the rest, you could say, is history. We enjoyed lots of outings to the park and pool and the girls got a long great! They are moving back North (like almost to Canada north!) so we enjoyed one last play date together yesterday and had a wonderful time! We will miss you!!!

Aiken Particulars

I have found that there are many things in my hometown that I take for granted. One of those being that it is an equestrian town. I forget that not every town has horse farms that you can drive by downtown. It really is a fun place to raise my daughter!

Margo's Real Live Baby

We had a wonderful reunion with my best friends from high school. Carrie, Bethany, and I got together for lunch yesterday. Margo's favorite playmate, Constance and baby brother Valen hung out too. Margo was so excited to play with "baby A-len"... wasn't it just one year ago that Constance would hold Margo in this same way? How quickly my little baby became a little girl!

Tea with Daddy

A Wonderful Combination

Catching up with one of my best friends, Margo spending time with her favorite playmate, and an outing to the zoo... what a wonderful combination!

First Bike

Margo got an early birthday present from Pop Pop and Nana - a beautiful pink and purple Radio Flyer tricycle complete with streamers!
