Family Picnic

Well the weather has been GORGEOUS in south Louisiana…

so Brad and I took the girls on a picnic this weekend. Now if this were the movies or something, I would have made sandwiches, cut up fruit, made fresh lemonade…and placed it all in a cute basket.

But this is reality…and we drove through a Sonic drivethru – then headed to the park.

We had a ball 🙂

What’s out there?

This is my new favorite pic. I just love the way the light is hitting her face, the way her legs show she is barely able to stand up, and the wonder of what might be going through her mind…

february2009-0032Dear Brie,

I sat by you tonight until you fell asleep…

it was kind of a rough afternoon (you didn’t have a nap) and you asked me to stay by you while you fell asleep…

so I did 🙂

I rocked you for awhile too.

I’m saying this because I don’t want to forget these moments.

This past week has definitely been a harder one for you.

You were sick with a bad case of tonsillitis.

On the 4th day, when your fever was still topping 103…and you were on motrin…

you were starting to worry me.

But you are all better now 🙂

After 3 meds from the doc – and lots of prayer/loving/holding – you bounced right back.

You are amazing.

Growing and changing…becoming sweeter by the minute.

You say the sweetest things…

like for no reason…after I bathe you, for example, sometimes you will say,

“Thank you, mommy, for bathing me.”

And I melt.

Lately, you have been loving to “help” around the house.

You want to vacuum, fold the laundry, empty the dishwasher, basically anything that you see me doing.

You are always saying “I can do it, mommy!”

You want to do everything all by yourself.

And, most things, you can do by yourself.

I’m so proud of you.

Today, while we were out walking in the neighborhood, you pulled Sage in the wagon…all by yourself.

You are my little angel.

I would not change a thing about you.

I love you with every drop I have (and then some 🙂 )

I’m forever yours.

february2009-0252 Princesses in a Tub 🙂

Well it has been a crazy weekend so far…but I had to share this pic 🙂

I’m just starting to be able to get them both smiling – in the same direction – at the same time.

You don’t want to know what I had to do to get this pic…

Friday – Brad and I went out for Valentine’s to one of our favorite restaraunts…Flemings!!

The food (and company) was perfect.

We followed dinner with our weekly grocery trip to Walmart.

Nothing says “I Love You Forever” like dinner and a Walmart trip.

Brie has had a fever virus for about the last 24 hours…peaking today at 103.2 😦

Hoping that clears up very soon.

Brad made a rocking pot of gumbo (he’s the best).

Sage continues to eat gravel and wires…

We’ve visited with Toots, Nana, and Pawpaw…all that and its only Saturday night!!

Well…I think I’m gonna go hang out with my favorite toddler…cause its only 21 minutes till bedtime.

But who’s counting?
