Happy Thanksgiving from Shirley Jean!

Today Shirley got to eat fresh green beans, mashed potatoes and gravy, bread, stuffing and cranberries! She is such a big girl. I can see her full tummy from here...It's dragging on the ground when she tries to crawl...

I am so thankful for my little girl. She is such a joyful presence in our lives.

Shirley Jean Meets The Chips!

Erin & Kendall, Jill & Kaleb, Lauren & SJ

This weekend my cousin Jill and her husband Jamie were in town visiting friends and we were able to get together and finally meet their beautiful twins! They were absolutely darling, and we had a wonderful time.
Kendall thought "Bebe Lurley" was pretty cool.

CHEESE!!!

I think hamming for the camera runs in the family. :)

Mommy the Songwriter

I have written a song.

Its purpose is twofold:

1. It entertains and distracts.

2. It teaches some life lessons that Richard and I both feel are very important.

Do listen.

Baby Jail at the Grandma Spa

She just can't seem to crawl FORWARD and keeps getting stuck.
Remember how I said she hams for the camera? She was just mildly unhappy until I held up the camera. Then she FREAKED. Couldn't possibly be because I was taking a photo instead of helping, could it?
