Stay tuned!! There will be tons of pics and quick dialogue to tell you all that you have missed :o)
Thank you in advance for tuning in and caring what we are doing in our family with our sweet Emily Grace!!

June Update

We just returned from Las Vegas where I acted as Matron of Honor as well as honored family member to "give away" my friend Ursula Galosson as she married her best friend Dr. John Spence. What a fun and exhausting four days it was!! The whole weekend was full of fun, fabulous food, wine, great weather, a great beach like pool and ridiculously fun entertaining friends of the couple!! We did arrive home safely but with David sick as a dog. He has an upper respiratory infection with the early stages of bronchitis. Geeze...Poor David, he was ER sick the last time we were in Vegas...needless to say...David has decided that he hates Vegas. All of the pics were taken by a traveling photographer ( I plan to get copies) Now we are trying to calm down, get well and prepare for our week long trip to Walt Disney World coming all too soon. I hope that I have time to do the laundry before packing again. This is too fast paced for even me Lol!!! :o) Pics of both are coming soon!!!

Happy Mother's Day

What a sweet day!!! Emily Grace made the most precious gift with her hand prints. I will cherish it forever!!! David then took us out to Vining's Inn for brunch. How sweet!! I am very thankful for my lil' angel!! I couldn't be more in love!! I would have loved seeing my mother today, but she is at the beach. Miss you Mom!! We did visit David's mother and grandmother with gifts in tow, but they wouldn't allow any pictures. It was very nice spending the afternoon with them, though. David's father, a chef by hobby, prepared a fabulous dinner. We had a very nice day!!

Pre-Dance Recital Pictures

Emily Grace had to have her dance recital pictures made today. I decided to take some pics of my very own as well. She felt like a little princess. I think that she was most excited about wearing lipgloss. How cute is that? I can't believe my little baby girl looks so grown up now!!

Emily Grace and Briana Light Up The Dance Floor

We recently went out to dinner with Doug, Lisa and their beautiful Briana. There was live music and our little beauties just had to get out on the floor and put on a show. It was simply adorable if I do say so myself. They were a hit as you can imagine :o)
We all had a great time together and we look forward to doing it again!!

My New Found Favorite Hobby

I have just begun to paint. I had always wanted to try it, but I had always been reluctant since I can't even draw a stick figure that is worth anything. :o) Here are my very first four paintings ever!! I just love painting!! It is so therapeutic!! There is an art studio right by my house where you can just drop in for a class, paint and go commitment. I love that idea. I would paint more if it were cheaper. I have plans to go again this month.

Happy Gotcha Day to Emily Grace's Gotcha Day Sisters!

Here is pic of all of Emily Graces' "Gotcha Day" sisters at the 1st year reunion!! They were all roughly 2 years old. It was tough trying to get them to smile all at once. (If you are not sure which beautiful baby is Emily Grace, she is the one with pigtails) They are all roughly 3 years old now. I would love to see them all together at this age.
