What's been going on...

Well, I guess I am averaging a post a month lately. We've been pretty busy around here...pricking fingers and giving shots. Yuck. Lilly is doing so good, though, and takes it so well. Plenty of family fun going on. Loving this beautiful weather we've had lately!!

What else...

Installing a backsplash. More on that later...

A bird has made a nest and laid eggs in a basket I left on the patio table.

The nest, complete with five eggs. Oh, and a rotten gourd, sidewalk chalk, and paper plate holders. White trash, much?!?!

I hosted a craft day and egg hunt. That was fun!!

Its near impossible to get a picture with everyone actually looking at the camera. We'll take what we get, though.

Chaperoning Jackson's field trip. That was fun!! What I always dreamed of when becoming a Mommy. I am still on the fence about homeschooling next year or not, but the time of Jackson being in school has been good. He loves it!!

Beautifying the patio and yard. More on that later...Lovin' my new screen door!!

Fisher turned two. Yesterday. Happy Birthday, Fisher!!

Planning a birthday cookout, complete with burlap, picnic plaid and...ANTS!!! More on that later...
Oh, and for those of y'all who hung in there all this time...we are having a GIRL!!!!!

Wow, a girl-How very very special (I laugh, I would have said that if you said you were having a boy too!)
Looks like you have been busy but it also looks like you are really enjoying that family of yours!~♥

Love the birds nest so cute~

Yay! It's so nice to see a post from you in my reader! Love seeing all the fun you have been having this spring. Congratulations to you and your family as you wait for your baby girl!

So glad to see Lily up and running around having fun! Put a smile on my face. I know how scared it had to be for you and your family.

Awe trying to take pic of kids or lots of them can be a little bit of a challenge.

Looks like lots of happy kids at your house for the get together.

Please share more on the backsplash...i was just telling my hubby we have to do something in our kitchen.

Happy Spring!

It is good to see what has been going on with you! I just LOVE that screen door. Can't wait to get one at my house. The ant wreath is adorable too.
Happy Birthday Fisher!

Wow!! You have been quite busy. Hope things are going well for your family.

I glad you are getting back into a regular routine... until that baby comes and creates yet a new one ;)

Your announcing having another baby, while I'm hoping for news of another grand baby on the way ;-p How our lifes change yet stay the same!

I hope this pregnancy goes quite smoothly for you! I have still been praying for you and for Lilly!!!!

I chuckled at your ants on the wreath. A neighbor of ours has this little landscaped area by the edge of her driveway and the city sidewalk. It has a lamp post in it, and a huge rock, and lots of flowers, and in a line up the side of the rock, over the top of the rock, and then even a couple on the lamp post, she has these large metal ants attached. So comical and cute!!!!!
